Jeri and Buddy are the best of friends.
They don’t like animal experiments. Are they really necessary? Unfortunately, yes.
The effect of a substance can’t be properly assessed until it’s been tested
on a living organism. And before we test the active substances on people, we need
to analyze them in animals. This is also mandated by international regulations on
drug development. Prior to each project, we always check whether an approved
method is available that does not rely on animal studies and, if possible, we
apply it. At the same time, the number of animals used in experiments has fallen
markedly. Today, we require a third as many as in 1989. Since 2005 alone, we
could roughly half the number of study animals used. If you have any further
questions on clinical trials, please visit our website or contact us.
