I completely agree with the banning of testing cosmetics on animals – but it will be a tougher sell on me with the medications. Of course that testing should be after all of the other steps have been completed.
If Chimps and Humans are 98+% similar in DNA then drug effects will show the results that most drug tests are looking for.
I would have prefered if this article had some quotes from some drug research companies instead of a single implied quote.
With all that – testing should be pretty strictly limited and should follow some stricter guidlines.
