              〜Wath Animal Testing in 60 Seconds Flat 
                                          



            A new BUAV investigation has uncovered the shocking killing of puppies,                  kittensand other baby animals BORN TO DIE in a UK laboratory.       

                                  


A BUAV investigation has uncovered the shocking use of very young animals, including puppies and kittens by MSD Animal Health in the UK in experiments for animal vaccines. The animals were killed and their bodies cut up for examination.

During our 8 month investigation, 92 beagle puppies, 10 adult nursing female beagles, at least 15 kittens and an unknown number of rabbits, calves and chickens were killed by MSD Animal Health in one UK laboratory. 

Some of the animals, including rabbits, calves and kittens, were allowed to suffer the full extent of the symptoms of serious and even deadly diseases. A number of rabbits had to be killed due to the severity of their suffering. Kittens were used in experiments that caused them to suffer weight loss, high temperatures and ulcers. Then at less than 6 months old, the kittens were killed, their bodies dissected and dumped in a bin as waste.

Pregnant beagles were delivered to the laboratory. After giving birth, they were allowed to remain with their puppies for just a few weeks. Most had their puppies cruelly taken away to be used in tests when they were only around 5 weeks old.  Once their puppies had been removed, the nursing mothers were killed, sometimes within minutes. These trusting dogs were seen as nothing more than breeding machines to provide puppies to be used in experiments. The company had no system for finding homes for them; most were simply discarded. Some of the puppies could also have been released but shockingly this rarely happened because it was easier for the laboratory to kill them.

Many of the puppies were used in tests and then killed; some at just 6 weeks of age. Restrained and given a lethal injection, their small bodies cut open and bits of organs sliced up and taken away for analysis.

Please help the BUAV end the appalling killing of puppies, kittens and other animals BORN TO DIE in UK laboratories.

During our 8 month investigation, 92 beagle puppies, 10 adult nursing female beagles, at least 15 kittens and an unknown number of rabbits, calves and chickens were killed at the facility including:

             ◎◎Microchips lined by human cells that could revolutionize drug testing and development◎◎

                            http://wyss.harvard.edu/viewpage/ 

The paradigm used by pharmaceutical companies to discover and develop new drugs is broken. Clinical studies take years to complete and testing a single compound can cost more than $2 million. Meanwhile, innumerable animal lives are lost, and the process often fails to predict human responses because traditional animal models do not accurately mimic human physiology. For these reasons, the pharmaceutical industry needs alternative ways to screen drug candidates in the laboratory.

The Wyss Solution

Institute researchers and a multidisciplinary team of collaborators are engineering microchips that recapitulate the microarchitecture and functions of living organs, such as the lung, heart, and intestine. These microchips, called organs-on-chips, could one day form an accurate alternative to traditional animal testing. Each individual organ-on-chip is composed of a clear flexible polymer about the size of a computer memory stick that contains hollow microfluidic channels lined by living human cells. Because the microdevices are translucent, they provide a window into the inner workings of human organs.

The Wyss Institute team seeks to build ten different human organs-on-chips and link them together on an automated instrument to mimic whole-body physiology. The instrument will control fluid flow and cell viability while permitting real-time observation of the cultured tissues and analysis of complex biochemical functions. This instrumented "human-on-a-chip" will be used to rapidly assess responses to new drug candidates, providing critical information on their safety and efficacy.

    

  There are two main types of animal testing alternatives: in vitro and in silico.

           Human-Patient Simulators  Strategic Operations Surgical Cut Suit Demo

                                    

  • Strikingly life-like computerized human-patient simulators that breathe, bleed, convulse, talk, and even “die” have been shown to teach students physiology and pharmacology better than crude exercises that involve cutting up animals. The most high-tech simulators mimic illnesses and injuries and give the appropriate biological response to medical interventions and injections of medications. Ninety-seven percent of medical schools across the U.S. have completely replaced the use of animal laboratories in medical training with simulators like this, as well as virtual-reality systems, computer simulators, and supervised clinical experience.
  • For more advanced medical training, systems like TraumaMan—which replicates a breathing, bleeding human torso and has realistic layers of skin and tissue, ribs, and internal organs—are widely used to teach emergency surgical procedures and have been shown in numerous studies to impart lifesaving skills better than courses that require students to cut into live pigs, goats, or dogs.

        Cats Tormented and Killed in University Lab http://www.peta.org/features/uw-madison-cruelty/

                           Cats Tormented and Killed at University of Wisconsin-Madison
                                                  

         Kittens' skulls cracked open and electrodes inserted into their brains in 
                                                       
    Horrifying: Kittens had their skulls cracked open before electrodes were inserted into their brain. This picture was taken during a similar procedure at the University of Wisconsin.

                                                         

    Brutal: Scientists put the kittens under anaesthetic but when the procedures were finished, most of the cats were given fatal overdoses. Animal charity PETA captured these images at Wisconsin University last year.


                                                

    Experiments: Procedures where skulls were cracked opened and electrodes inserted were carried out to test the 'feedback mechanisms' between the eyes and the brain. This animal was part of an experiment at the University of Wisconsin


                                                 

    Controversial: Ten of the country's most prestigious universities were said to be involved in the procedures similar to that performed at the University of Wisconsin (pictured). Many of the cats were held down like this during the brutal experiments.


                                                  

    Helpless: One cat, with a screw in its skull, pokes its head out of a blanket during an experiment at the University of Wisconsin.


    Kittens have been paralysed, had their skulls broken and had ­electrodes stuck onto their brains, ribs and spine as part of a series of shocking experiments at 10 of the country's most prestigious universities.
    The cruel procedures on the helpless subjects have been performed so scientists can improve their understanding of the human body.
    Some of the animals were raised in complete darkness while others had one of their eyes stitched closed so scientists could analyse problems surrounding 'lazy eye'.
    Others had their lungs deliberately collapsed during the brutal procedures and many were injected with paralysing drugs to stop them moving or breathing.
    Scientists put the kittens under anaesthetic but when the experiments were finished, most of them were killed.
    In a document seen by Mail Online, 10 universities including Cambridge were listed as having performed the controversial tests.
    University College London gave adult cats anaesthetic before screwing plates into their skull while they were placed face down.
    Electrodes were then attached to their spine to 'investigate how abdominal nerve cells and muscles work together to allow for normal respiration, coughing and breathing.'
    To test 'feedback mechanisms' between the eyes and the brain, they placed electrodes onto certain areas of the brain after removing parts of their skull.
    The University of Bristol purposely bred cats for their experiments, which involved 'cutting through the skin and bone to gain access to the skull.'
    Some of the food regimes, which lasted for six weeks, were high in fat and harmful.
    Cardiff University and University of Edinburgh raised kittens and their mothers in 'complete darkness' to test how certain brain functions related to amblyopia, commonly known as ‘lazy eye’.
    Some kittens were raised normally and then placed in complete darkness for a week. Other kittens had one eye closed through the use of sutures in the eyelids for up to seven days.
    Major head surgery was done to prepare the kittens for testing. They were then anaesthetised and paralysed with a drug which prevented them from breathing or moving.
    A hole was made through their throats into their tracheas (wind pipe) so that a tube could be inserted and used to artificially 'breathe' for them.
    The Royal Veterinary College is also said to be 'directly involved' in the experiments. 

    Animal campaigners have reacted angrily to the revelations with one calling the procedures 'repulsive'. 

    Andrew Tyler, the director of Animal Aid said: 'The extreme suffering and stress endured by the cats and kittens used in these repulsive experiments is deeply disturbing to imagine. 

    'Quite apart from the suffering caused, these appalling procedures are highly unlikely to contribute to medical progress, since the results of animal experiments cannot be reliably translated to humans. 

    'Instead of torturing cats and kittens in perversely cruel experiments, University College London should move into the twenty-first century and embrace the wide range of non-animal methods that are available to scientists and produce valid, human-relevant results.'

    The shocking treatment of the kittens was outlined in a report by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV). 

    CEO of the BUAV, Michelle Thew, said: 'Over 5 million families in the UK share their home with one or more cats yet these much loved animals are still being used in cruel experiments in which they can be subjected to invasive brain surgery or deliberately deprived of light or vision by being raised in total darkness or by having their eyelids sewn shut. 

    'Much of the research is fundamental and the BUAV believes that sophisticated alternative techniques, which do not involve animal suffering, should be used instead. We are calling on the Government to end the cruel use of cats in UK laboratories.'

    Comedian and author, Alexei Sayle, who is campaigning with the BUAV, will deliver report titled ‘What is happening to cats?’ to the Home Office.

    Mr Sayle said: 'As a cat owner myself I know what wonderful companions they can be and how affectionate, intelligent and playful. 

    'That is why I am joining with the BUAV to ask the UK Government to bring an end to the use of all cats in experimentation. It is time to stop this cruel and unnecessary suffering.'

    Last year, animal charity PETA challenged the University of Wisconsin over their treatment of cats during animal testing.

    The organisation managed to capture some of the animals during the procedures. 

    A spokesman from the University of Cambridge said: 'The research to which BUAV refers involved scientists from a number of UK institutions, including researchers from University of Cambridge, who analysed tissue samples. 

    'This research was part of the development of a potential new treatment for amblyopia (lazy eye), a common disorder of vision which affects one in 50 children. 

    'As it would be unethical to carry out such research using humans, initial studies were carried out using mice and rats; in order to further understand whether the treatment was effective, it was then necessary to carry out further work in a higher order animal – in this case a small number of cats.'

    A spokesman for University College London said the experiments mentioned in the article were carried out in 1992 and 1998. 

    Reacting to the allegations, Cardiff University spokesperson said: 'The research referenced in today’s story ended in 2010. 

    'Our research involving animals is aimed at the alleviation of human and veterinary disease through the advancement of medical, dental, biological and veterinary understanding. 

    'All animal-related research work at Cardiff University is designed and carried out in accordance with the principles of the 3Rs under veterinary oversight and in compliance with the strict conditions imposed by the UK Government.' 

    A representative from Bristol University said it could state categorically that the type of research highlighted has not been carried out at the University for at least seven years

    Mail Online has contacted the other institutions for comment.

    Over 1,000 lab animals die in scorching conditions after ventilation system fails

    MORE than 1,000 laboratory animals at a secret scientific testing facility died in baking temperatures when the building's ventilation system failed, a shocking Government report has revealed.   Published:  17:15, Mon, December 8, 2014 

       More than 1,000 lab rats and mice died in the incident

    In total 1,132 mice and rats died because a fuse blew in the cooling system, which saw the building they were kept in warm to unbearable temperatures.

    By the time technicians discovered the problem, 787 animals were already dead.

    Another 345 had to be culled because they were suffering so much.

    In a separate incident at the lab, some genetically altered animals were found to be living in such poor conditions that 68 baby mice disappeared - presumed to have been eaten by their own mothers.

    The incidents at the unnamed facility were detailed in a report by the Home Office, which conducts investigations when things go wrong at animals testing labs.

    The name of the lab's owner has not been released by the Government, for fears of reprisals from animal rights groups.

    The owner is, however, understood to be a private company.

    The Government report said that there was a critical delay in contacting an engineer after high summer temperatures caused the cooling system to overload and cut out.

    This led to soaring temperatures and humidity in the lab, resulting in the animals' deaths.

    Officials said that failings at the lab included a lack of investment in suitable cooling equipment, no proper call-out procedures, shortcomings in training and resources as well as a lack of suitable contingency plans.

    The facility was issued with a written reprimand and a letter sent to the Chief Executive of the parent company of the lab from the Home Secretary about the incident.

    Experts also said that the institution had been involved in two other incidents since 2010 when they were found to have breached rules.

    The report said: "All parties have been helpful and co-operative throughout the investigation and have expressed regret for what happened.

    "Once the relevant issues were identified the establishment responded very quickly to resolve the immediate situation."

    However, a spokesman for animal charity PETA claimed that the laboratory's failings were "downright criminal".

    He said: "This failure to meet even the bare minimum standards of animal care set forth in the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 isn't just irresponsible - it's downright criminal, and for this anonymous institution to get away with its license intact and only a slap on the wrist just beggars belief.

    "Imagine if we were talking about the deaths of hundreds of humans exposed to extreme temperatures with no means of escape or respite - a case would immediately be brought before [the International Criminal Court at] The Hague citing crimes against humanity. 

    "PETA's science advisers have called the troubling lack of detail regarding this case to the attention of the Home Office, and we look forward to seeing tougher action for non-compliance issues and greater transparency regarding regulation breaches in the near future. 

    "Aside from the many cases of neglect of animals in laboratories reported every year, we mustn't forget the enormous waste of time, resources and both human and non-human lives, which is all that this archaic science produces."

    Crime Prevention Minister Lynne Featherstone said: "I expect the highest standards of welfare for animals used in research. Anyone who falls short of these will face sanctions.

    "The UK has one of the most comprehensive animal welfare systems in the world to ensure animal testing is carried out humanely and only when necessary. 

    "All establishments are subjected to regular inspections and we expect them to strictly adhere to the terms of their licences. 

    "The Coalition Government is committed to enhancing openness and transparency about the use of animals in scientific research to improve public understanding of this work."

    This failure to meet even the bare minimum standards of animal care set forth in the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 isn't just irresponsible - it's downright criminal
