Recommended Conferences for Animal Experimentation

Animal Experimentation

As per the on-going reports about 162 National symposiums has been accomplished. Animal experimentation has also undergone 717 Conference Proceedings, 4 upcoming conferences, 306 Open access journals and 4 Journals.

Animal testing, also known as animal experimentation, animal research, and in vivo testing, is the use of non-human animals in experiments (although some research about animals involves only natural behaviors or pure observation, such as a mouse running a maze or field studies of chimp troops. The research is conducted inside universities, medical schools, pharmaceutical companies, farms, defense establishments, and commercial facilities that provide animal-testing services to industry. Animals are also used for education, breeding, and defense research. The practice is regulated to various degrees in different countries Animals are used by the military to develop weapons, vaccines, battlefield surgical techniques, and defensive clothing. For example, in 2008 the United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency used live pigs to study the effects of improvised explosive device explosions on internal organs, especially the brain.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members.

Scope and Importance:
Animals have been used repeatedly throughout the history of biomedical research. Early Greek physician-scientists, such as Aristotle performed experiments on living animals. Likewise, Galen , a Greek physician who practiced in Rome and was a giant in the history of medicine, conducted animal experiments to advance the understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pharmacology), an Arab physician in twelfth century Moorish Spain, introduced animal testing as an experimental method for testing surgical procedures before applying them to human patients. One of the most, contentious issues in science is the use of animals in research. Scientists experiment on animals for a host of different reasons, including basic research to explore how organisms function, investigating potential treatments for human disease, and safety and quality control testing of drugs, devices and other products. Its proponents point to the long list of medical advances made possible with the help of animal research. There have been new concepts of testing cosmetics on animals. Different ethical considerations and an alternate of expanding the three R’s to meet new challenges in humane animal experimentation.

Different animals like guinea pigs, hamsters’ rabbits, pigs, sheep, cats and other animals have been used as an experimentation tool for various researches around the globe.

It is estimated that more than 115 million animals worldwide are used in laboratory experiments every year. But because only a small proportion of countries collects and publishes data concerning animal use for testing and research, the precise number is unknown. For example, in the United States, up to 90 percent of the animals used in laboratories (purpose-bred rats, mice and birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and invertebrates) are excluded from the official statistics, meaning that figures published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture are no doubt a substantial underestimate. The number of animals for research in the U.S exceeds 2,000,000, and for Israel researches have taken place over 300,000 animals.

The UK-based National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) issued a report on Indian animal testing based on a review of Indian research papers in the international scientific literature and CPCSEA’s inspections of 467 laboratories. NAVS found key faults in the animal testing industry in India and concluded that years of scientific research in India have been invalidated by poor scientific procedure, poor laboratory practices and a lack of appropriate animal care.

Within the European Union, more than 12 million animals are used each year, with France, Germany and the United Kingdom being the top three animal using countries. British statistics reflect the use of more than 3 million animals each year, but this number does not include animals bred for research but killed as surplus without being used for specific experimental procedures. Although these animals still endure the stresses and deprivation of life in the sterile laboratory environment, their lives are not recorded in official statistics. HSI believes that complete transparency about animal use is vital and that all animals bred, used or killed for the research industry should be included in official figures.
