     Did you know?

    ~Animal research has led to elimination of polio, smallpox, rabies and measles as U.S. public health threats; new diagnostic tests for early treatment (cancer, heart disease); and effective treatments for serious illnesses (diabetes, leukemia, HIV/AIDS, cardiovascular disease).

    ~Animal research benefits animals. Dog and cat longevity and health are enhanced by medicines and vaccines. Research contributes to farm animal welfare and techniques to save endangered species.

   ~ Nearly all research animals are rodents, fish or reptiles. Dogs, cats, and non-human primates account together for less than one percent of total research animals.
