"Exposing the truth to wipe out animal experimentation"

Articles and Reports

 The Animal Experimentation Scandal (2005 Updated Report):
An Audit of the Funding of Animal Experimentation By Seven Federal Agencies Listing the top Laboratories in Order of Funding Received During 2003
By Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director,
Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!

Recommendations

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ), and Office of Assistant Secretary of Health (OASH) should be required to compile annual reports detailing: the amount of funding directed at animal experimentation, the amount of funding directed at alternatives development, the number of animal used in experimentation, etc.

Congress should commission a General Accounting Office audit of the grant system within these same agencies, also correlating research contracts data, to examine the issue of duplication within the system and to develop specific parameters to prevent excessive duplication and redundancy within the grant system. This information should also be correlated with information relevant to funding of research projects in other agencies including the Department of Defense, United States Department of Agriculture, Department of Energy, etc.

The grant approval system, on the agency level, as well as the facility level, must be overhauled to put more community representation on Institutional Animal Care & Use Committees (IACUC) for all facilities that receive federal funding, and all IACUC meetings must be open to the public, and regularly announced.

All branches of the federal government that perform animal-based experimentation should be required to maintain an internet accessible database of all funded projects to prevent inter-agency project duplication.
