AbstractIn early February, the British government released a policy memo encouraging a reduction in the use of animals for research purposes. The memo, Working to Reduce the Use of Animals in Scientific Research, is part of an ongoing effort to address the increasing usage of animals for research in the United Kingdom [1]. The official effort began in 2010 after studies revealed an increase of animal experiments in the U.K. since the early 2000’s. According to the most recent statistics, U.K. scientists conducted over 4.11 million experiments on animals in 2012, an 8% increase from 2011 [2].
