Animal Use in Scientific Experiments: An Ethical Dilemma

Garima Chauhan, Praveen Yadav.

Humankind has used animals for food, transport and as a companion for many years now. The
utilizing of wild living in experimental study goes hand in hand with the creation of medicine which began in
ancient Greece. Experiments on animals could be carried out without great moral issues with the Cartesian
method in the 17th century. The invention of anesthetics and the Darwin publication on the origin of species,
which advocated the biological resemblance of humans and animals, helped to increase the animal experiments.
Animal experiments were always considered essential as well as applicable to scientific research. This action
must also be explained from a moral standpoint, in addition to the scientific suitability requirements. This
problem derives from our civilizations’ requirement that animals be given a certain moral value. As guidelines
for the performance of wild animal tests besides the safety of lab creators, Burch's three Rs of “Replacement,
Reduction, and Refinement” is a area that may be described as a multiple-disciplinary division of sciences. The
greater interest and concern about issues of animal welfare contributed to legislation in many countries and the
setting up of commissions on animal ethics. This paper includincludes an in-depth discussion on how to treat and use
animals for the biomedical research when conducting research

Key words: Animal Rights, Biomedical Research, Cartesian method, Darwin publication, Ethics, Humankind, Burch's three Rs.
