Animal experimentation

Animal experimentation is necessary for medical progress. All progress in the medical field has relied upon and will continue to rely upon the results obtained from studies involving animal experimentation at one stage or another.

 

The recourse to animal experimentation is at the origin of major scientific advances. All the medical discoveries rewarded by the Nobel Prizes in Medicine and Physiology have been obtained though the use of animal experimentation at one stage or another in the research process.

Animal experimentation protects man and his environment

Today, each new marketed product must show its lack of toxicity for man under the conditions defined by the manufacturer, by using various animal tests, in compliance with the international regulatory requirements in this area.
This concerns all the various products of our environment: chemical products, for use in agriculture and those for hygiene and cosmetic uses.

Alternative methods are used in priority

New methods in biomedical experimentation, the so-called alternatives, allow one to reduce recourse to animals, but not necessarily to replace them.
Discovered and developed by scientists throughout the world, these new methods of biomedical experimentation based on cell cultures, molecular biology, imaging and computer sciences represent not only a considerable advance on the technical front but also on the reduction in the use of animals.

Application of strict regulations to studies involving animal experimentation

Every biomedical study in the Company that involves the use of animals must be performed in conformity with the national and international legislation and in additional follow the guidelines laid down by various animal welfare organizations like the ILAR (Institute for Laboratory Animal Research), UFAW (Universities Federation for Animal Welfare) and FELASA (Federation of Animal Science Associations).
