FDA petition would protect public from dangerous drugs
Date:11/14/2007

p>Coalition members point out that more than 90 percent of drugs tested in people after successful animal tests are not approved for wider use because they dont work or they are unsafe. Half the drugs that are approved are later withdrawn or relabeled for adverse effects not detected by animal tests. Adverse drug reactions are a leading cause of death in the United States.

To reduce such risks, the MAP coalition urges wider use of human-centered research methods such as microdosing, tissue studies, and virtual drug trials. Greater use of alternatives would also have a humane benefit because it would reduce the use of monkeys, dogs, cats, mice, and other animals. In Europe, the use of scientifically satisfactory alternatives, where those alternatives are available, is mandated under European Union Directive 86/609/EEC.

The MAP is signed by more than 100 doctors, scientists, and other experts, including famed primatologist Roger Fouts, neurologist and public health expert Aysha Akhtar, M.D., M.P.H., pediatrician Roberta Gray, M.D., and economist Jeremy Rifkin. Nonprofit organization members of the MAP coalition are the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights, the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection, In Defense of Animals, the New England Anti-Vivisection Society, and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
