There is no evidence that animal experiments were essential in making major medical advances, and if enough money and resources were devoted to animal-free alternatives, other solutions would be found. (2.) RED = 94%GREEN = 6% The red represents the amount of clinical tests that pass in animals but fail in humans. (5.)*This does not include the percentage of products that pass but have to be relabeleddue to side effects that weren't discovered in the animal tests.

(2.) 14 Billion dollars are spent on animal testing anually Using alternatives could cut this amount at least in half if not more. A DNA synthesis animal test costs $32,000 The In-vitro alternative costs $11,000 A rat phototoxicity test costs $11,500 The non-animal equivalent costs $1,300 A rat uterotrophic assay costs $29,600 The corresponding in vitro test costs $7,200 Works Cited 1.
