Seventy seven scientists and academics, along with Animal Free Research UK, Safer Medicines Trust and the Alliance for Human Relevant Science, have published an open letter in The Guardian today, to 10 governmental and intergovernmental agencies calling for a change in regulation to enable medical research without the use of animals for all diseases in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.



We are calling for a change of mindset and a clear timetable for regulatory change to enable accelerated development of medicines which are likely to be safer, more effective and cheaper, without the use of animals.
