In Reply: Scientists involved in biomedical
research that uses any species—human or other—must treat research
participants in a manner that combines respect for the individual with rigorous
scientific methods, all under the examination, monitoring, and constraints
of local institutional oversight committees. A consideration often overlooked
by those who decry biomedical research using nonhuman participants is that
these same research findings have been crucial in diagnosing and treating
disease in animals as well as humans.
