END NIH FUNDING OF MARMOSETS LAB EXPERIMENTS
END NIH FUNDING OF MARMOSETS LAB EXPERIMENTS
Recently, the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—the largest funder of animal experimentation worldwide—announced that it’s planning to launch “funding opportunities to support centralized infrastructure for marmoset research.” The use of animals in experimentation—including on chimpanzees, our closest living relatives—has proved an unqualified failure. The evidence is overwhelming that data from experiments on animals can’t be reliably applied to humans. For example, NIH itself acknowledges that 95 percent of drugs that test safe and effective in animals fail in humans because they don’t work or are dangerous. And a review in the prestigious medical journal The BMJ reported that more than 90 percent of “the most promising findings from animal research” fail to lead to human treatments. By ramping up funding to increase the supply of marmosets for laboratories, NIH is doubling down on a failed enterprise. Please urge NIH not to squander more tax dollars on failed animal experimentation and instead to redirect funds to modern, non-animal research methods.
