Editorial: Alternatives to animal experiments in teaching and research

"The alternatives to animal experimentation have been widely accepted as humane educational aids and teaching approaches that can replace harmful animal use or complement existing humane education. These include computer software, student self experimentation, models, manikins and simulators, ethically source animal cadavers and clinical work with animal patients. Advances in technology and the ethical and financial advantages of alternatives have led to curricular changes and establishment of alternatives as norm in many institutes in developed parts of the world. In our country, we are yet to make determined beginning. Whatsoever little has been done is due to the faculty's interest in a few institutes. There is need to develop non-animal alternatives, which need to be validated before recommending them for larger use. Government and other non-government organizations working for the welfare of animals should provide financial support for such endeavours." (To read more, please click on the link below)
