Whistle blowers charge MPI labs falsify data, use abused animals in experiments, says national research watchdog group
 

KALAMAZOO, MI Research data is falsified and animals used in other research are so abused they invalidate any research data, according to whistle blowers connected to MPI laboratories, charged a national animal research watchdog group today.

Details will be release at a major news conference MONDAY, April 21, at 2:45 p.m. at the Staybridge Suites Hotel (2001 Seneca Drive) Kalamazoo Room, hosted by SAEN, a non-profit, Ohio-based watchdog group.

SAEN executive director Michael Budkie will comment on the state of research at MPI, and around the country, where he says internal reports and government records provide evidence suggesting that crime by animal researchers has increased inside labs by about 90 percent in recent years.

SAEN will also make public comments by whistle blowers who worked at MPI. They called the labs "a literal Holocaust on animals," and commented that: "I could not leave MPI soon enough...falsification of data happens all the time."

Budkie is conducting a tour of research facilities throughout six Midwest states this month as part of World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week to disclose information showing animal researchers have been breaking federal laws regularly, and are not being charged.
