The use of animal experiments could be replaced by research on “virtual human beings” and tests on banks of living cells within a generation, scientists say.

Computer modelling and advances in cell biology will allow researchers to assess new drugs far more precisely and without the involvement of animals.

I've always had a hard time with animal experiments. It's wrong for the animal.

But how many of us would be willing to give up all the animals we have ever loved if it would have saved the life of a single human that we loved even more?

The ability to do research and testing without using animals would be truly be a great achievement.
