END OF ANIMAL TESTING IS COMING INTO SIGHT 11/16/2018

According to Prize Director of Lush cosmetics, Rob Harrison, an end of animal testing is coming into view. Lush has a prize fund of £350,000 aimed to bring forward complete replacement of animal tests. Recently, £50,000 has been awarded to the team behind blinking eye-on-a-chip, which is an invention aimed to aid in drug discovery and replace cruel Draize eye irritation test, which is performed by administering chemicals to rabbit eyes. Researcher and professor Dan Dongeun Huh, who accepted the prize, said that there is an increasing body of evidence pointing to considerable interspecies differences in fundamental biological processes, making major scientific, economic and ethical concerns about animal studies. His eye-on-a-chip caught the imagination of the judges, since it provides a clear vision of what a replacement technology for animal use in science might look like. (plantbasednews.org)
