Is Medical Research on Animals REALLY the Only Way?
MARCH 10, 2009
I responded to a post on animalblog that cited a recent article in the journal "Proceedings" of the National Academy of Sciences. The article discusses how scientists are infecting monkeys with a surrogate HIV virus that does not even lead to AIDS, begging the question of why infect them in first place if there's no real simulation of what happens in humans? Here's my response on medical research in general. This story on HIV research is one example.
