Animal Test Alternatives: Refinement, Reduction, Replacement
M. Dekker, 1995 - Medical - 349 pages
Over 75 contributors from industry, academia, and government evaluate the latest developments and possible directions in alternatives to using animals in research and testing, and explain the regulatory climate that surrounds the controversial topic. Among the alternatives described are computer and chemical models, cell and tissue cultures, and the substitution of animals lower on the phylogenetic genetic tree that are neither cute nor fuzzy. The research considered involves such systems as the ocular, hepatic, renal, respiratory, cardiovascular, and environmental. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
