Biomedical scientists: Animals are essential in research

An online survey of about 1,000 biomedical scientists found that 90 percent regard the use of animals in research to be essential. The survey, which included both American and foreign researchers, was reported in last week's issue of Nature. 

About one-sixth of those who took part in the poll said they had "misgivings" about their work, but only a small number said they had changed their research because of those misgivings and, while some indicated that they had been affected by animal rights activists, only a few said that they had changed the direction of their work as a result.
