Dewhurst D, Hemmi A. Medical Council of India. Teaching and learning resources, IndPharnet. Essential Links Action on Violations. CD on X-Cology Pharmacy. Invertebrate animals Invertebrates can be used to replace the more commonly used laboratory animals. Support Center Support Center. It seems likely that these alternative methods and models will eventually replace intact animal models in pharmacology education, either partially or completely.

Introduction The mission of medicine is to eliminate suffering to maintain a good health, which may prolong the life. Microdosing studies enable potential new drugs to be tested safely in humans using ultrasensitivity of accelerator mass spectrometry.

Many in vitro techniques have evolved, but the concept is new and awaits validation and standardization. While experiments of vertebrates are regulated in most countries, those on invertebrates are not, and hence their accurate usage statistics are lacking.

These laboratory animals are obtained from various sources in different countries. As of 11 Marchcosmetics tested on animals can no longer be sold in Europe, even if the testing was done outside Europe.


This preclinical safety and efficacy data is needed for submission to drug regulatory authorities before the permission for further studies in humans are granted.

Cultured cells have been developed to create monoclonal antibodies and cell lines have been extensively used in cancer research as well. Is the animal the best experimental system for the hypothesis to be tested?

Synthetic replacement using a protein membrane to simulate a skin barrier is approved as a partial replacement. The latter have however declined owing to the ban on use of frogs. Medical council of India, New Delhi, amendment notification of 8 July to the Minimal standard requirements for medical colleges with admissions annually, regulations.

The in silico methods include models of diabetes, asthma and drug absorption. This document published as early as in also emphasized that researchers need to reduce, replace and refine the use of animals so as to minimize the pain and distress to animals.

Animal use in pharmacology education and research: The changing scenario

University cpcssea Edinburgh, UK. However, with changing trends in teaching methods and practices, it is increasingly felt that animals should not be sacrificed just to acquire skills and techniques of experimentation. There has been a concern about continuing the animal experiments in the postgraduate courses, but the rules and guidelines are confusing and unclear. Methods which minimize animal use and enable researchers to obtain comparable levels of information from fewer animals or to obtain more information from the same number of animals.


Typical experiments included effect of drugs on rabbit intestine, rabbit eye, central nervous system, reproductive system, as also the frog heart and frog rectus. The use of animals in research and education dates back to the period when humans started to look for ways to prevent and cure ailments.

Early modern experimentation on live animals. The first Nobel prize in in medicine was guidwlines serum therapy and research involving use of horses. The Developing utility guideines zebrafish models for cognitive enhancers.

The pharmacology c;csea the drug unravelled during the preclinical phase of drug development is a prerequisite to understand the potential efficacy and safety of a new drug. Over the last century, every Nobel Prize for medical research has been dependent on animal research.

In spite of some obvious drawbacks like the lack of an adaptive immune system which is a deterrent for their use in certain types of research such as vaccine development, these organisms do have a potential as alternatives to use of conventional animals.

It has been reported that the animals are being subjected to painful procedures in education and training unnecessarily. In this review we also cpcsra some of these alternatives.
