Man and Mouse: Animals in Medical Research

Man and Mouse: Animals in Medical Research

by SirWilliamPaton (Author)


This is a new edition of Sir William Paton's robust defence of the use of animals in research. As well as arguing in favour of vivisection, "Man and Mouse" explains fully the role of animal experiments in medical and veterinary research. This expanded edition now includes an extended discussion of the ethical problems surrounding animal experimentation. New material is included on toxicity tests, the history of the escalating violence used by the Animal Liberation Front and other groups, on tetanus, Poliomyelitis, penicillin, and tuberculosis and a study of the link between innovation in the field of drugs and the scale of animal experimentation. This book is intended for general readership, for those involved or interested in the debate about animal experiments (journalists, policy-makers) and for scientists in medical and veterinary research.
