Animal experiments are often inaccurate. A U.S. General Accounting Office review of the safety of all new drugs marketed in the decade leading up to 1985 shows the weakness of the correlation between animal testing and human safety. Of 198 new drugs with available data, all of which were animal-tested prior to approval, 102 (51.5 percent) were more dangerous than pre-market animal tests had indicated, so much so that they had to be relabeled or withdrawn.

 

Species differences are one reason for this problem. Of 19 chemicals known to cause cancer in humans, only 7 cause cancer in standard animal tests. According to researchers from Carnegie-Mellon University, this disparity in species is so great that the results of tests on rats differ from tests on mice 1/3 of the time. (www.YaleMedLaw.com)

 

So why has Wayne State University continued to destroy innocent animals lives for the past 20 years?

 

Queenie, pictured, was a friendly dog when she came to Wayne State University, but two major surgeries left her scared and in pain. She was forced to run dozens of strenuous treadmill tests, suffering for months inside of the lab until experimenters broke one of the devices in her body. At that point, Queenie was killed.

      Dogs like Queenie are purchased from Class B "random source" dealers and sold to institutions conducting gruesome lab experiments. Many of the dogs come from shelters, which means it could be your dog next, or your family or loved one’s dog.  They undergo major surgeries, are implanted with medical devices, and experience unrelenting pain for months, leading up to death. (Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine- www.PCRM.org)

     Wayne State University is touted as a leading research institution, and should live up to that reputation by focusing on groundbreaking human-based epidemiological studies, clinical trials and computer modeling instead of continuing to use dogs. Send a message to Wayne State University's President asking him to stop this cruelty immediately.

This atrocity can no longer be tolerated by the community.
