AbstractThe author examines some of the problems that exist in the regulation of experiments involving human subjects. Though the use of animals in scientific research usually requires an ethical evaluation by an ethics committee, the standards are often unclear, there is often insufficient management of experiments undertaken for specific (e.g., regulatory) purposes, and in some cases conflicts of interest of ethics committees' members. The author discusses these problems in depth and examines European legislation on animal experimentation for cosmetics testing as one area where clear standards have been set, and the need for further examination of other fields and aspects of animal experimentation.
