British Medical Journal Critical of Animal Experiments
A recent British Medical Journal article asked, “Where is the evidence that animal research benefits humans?” The authors examined systematic reviews of six areas of animal research and presented evidence that it had not informed human clinical research. Animal studies were also found wanting in their methods, with omissions in randomization of samples and failure to prevent observer bias.
