280.013 Animal Research


Animal Research: The Texas Medical Association supports the humane and responsible use of animals in education and biomedical and veterinary research in accordance with federal and state guidelines and recommends that biomedical scientists be encouraged to replace, reduce and refine research methods that require the use of animals as rapidly as science and technology permit. In addition, TMA supports legislation at all levels that impose criminal sanctions against those who break the law in their opposition to the use of animals in biomedical and veterinary research (Council on Scientific Affairs, p 129, A-94; reaffirmed CSA Rep. 6-A-04; amended CSPH Rep. 2-A-14).
