APPLYING RESULTS OF EXPERIMENTS ON ANIMALS TO HUMAN PATIENTS
EDM #66
Tabled 27 June 2017
2017-19 Session
That this House notes the science-based campaign For Life On Earth which is critical of avoidable experiments on animals; further notes Patients Campaigning For Cures, which opposes animal models on medical grounds; is alarmed that scientific studies reveal that the widespread claimed ability of animals to predict human responses to drugs and disease is demonstrably false; acknowledges that over 90 per cent of drugs which test well in animals harm or otherwise fail humans, and that ignoring this has delayed cures, including penicillin; notes that using animals to model humans also contradicts currently-accepted science, including evolutionary biology and genetics, which supports personalised medical care; further acknowledges the proclamation of the Concordat on Openness on Animal Research to develop communications with the media and the public; and calls for a thorough, properly moderated public scientific debate on the misleading and costly practice of trying to apply results from animal experiments to human patients.
