Human Based Research

This short film is an example of 21st Century scientific innovation in medical research. Scientists at the Wyss Institute Harvard University have developed a range of human-based research technologies that predict the response of the human body to compounds. Predicting the human response is something that animal testing is incapable of doing (this is empirically proven by leading scientists) and this is why the search for cures to killer diseases and conditions using the animal model has failed and will continue to fail. Further research expansion on human based predictive methodologies is what is needed for the significantly advanement of human healthcare.

Science Debate News

Oppose B&K Universal was launched in Hull, East Yorkshire, 2011: following an application submitted by B&K Universal to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to expand their beagle and ferret breeding facility for use in laboratory experimentation.

Our vision benefits: human patients, animals, and the UK economy by leading the global biosciences market in effective medical research technologies.

What quickly became apparent was the amount of opposition to research using animals, not just from local residents and animal advocates, but from MPs, doctors and scientists with their vision being to end the scientifically-failed, unjustifiable, cruel, outdated experiments on animals and amend 70 year old outdated government laws.

Our relentless call for scientific debate hearings is in association with the parliamentary science campaign For Life On Earth who represent leading experts in this field.

Meanwhile, this short film is an example of UK animal experimenters who continue to use cruel Gothic Victorian research methods, now proven in the 21st Century to be invalid in human medical research. Animals such as Beagles bred at B&K Universal in East Yorkshire and Harlan laboratories (bought out by Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) now called Envigo based in Cambridge) go through experiments like this - filmed inside HLS (1997 - 2008)

The UK's lobbying group for the animal experimentation community 'Understanding Animal Research' have agreed to participate in a first important, properly moderated   purely scientific debate.

Britain's leading human rights defence barrister Michael Mansfield QC has endorsed the conditions for this debate.


Our Science Representatives -

We collaborate with the Parliamentary science-based campaign For Life On Earth (FLOE) whose evidence is illustrated by the world's leading medical Board in its field - Europeans For Medical Advancement (EFMA) - who will represent the proposition in this forthcoming scientific debate.

We have just been informed that the Previous Minister for Universites and Science, newly appointed Communitites Secretary Greg Clark ignored his own senior planning inspector's recommendation to refuse B&K's planning application, and allowed US-owned B&K Universal to breed thousands of beagle puppies and other animals to supply laboratories for alleged medical experiments.

BBC INTERVIEW  16th July 2015
