DLRM's objective is for the immediate and total abolition
of all animal experiments, on medical and scientific grounds.
Animal based research cannot be extrapolated to humans because
of species differences and is therefore misleading and counterproductive.
It is imperative and urgent to end all animal experiments
without delay, opening the way to a change in direction towards
meaningful research and healing, restoring faith and respect
in the medical profession.
"Animal models differ from their human counterparts.
Conclusions drawn from animal research, when applied to human
disease, are likely to delay progress, mislead and do harm
to the patient."
