Please sign our new petition calling on the UK Government to make it a legal requirement to use the best tests available to ensure that new medicines are as safe as possible.

Our second letter in The Lancet
Safer Medicines Trust joined forces with 22 senior scientists to call on the Prime Minister and Health Secretary to compare animal tests for drug safety with newer tests based on human biology. Our letter was published in The Lancet on 4th June. http://safermedicines.cmail1.com/t/y/l/wuydll/wyheqt/o/
Predictably, the pro-animal-research lobby attacked our letter with a response published in The Lancet on 9th July. http://safermedicines.cmail1.com/t/y/l/wuydll/wyheqt/b/
We are very pleased that our response to such a false and ill-informed attack was published in The Lancet on 28th October. http://safermedicines.cmail1.com/t/y/l/wuydll/wyheqt/n/
