Research position statement: Using animals and stem cells in medical research
In common with most medical research charities, we acknowledge that, despite developments in areas such as cell culture and computer modelling, there will be times when research still depends on the use of animals and stem cells in order to develop new treatments and tests for life threatening diseases such as prostate cancer. Following guidance from the Association of Medical Research Charities and the Home Office, we will only fund the use of animals and stem cells in research where it is absolutely essential, where there are no alternative options, and where it is carried out according to best practice as laid down in legislation.
Please refer to our Position Statement on the use of animals and stem cells in research for full details on Prostate Cancer UK's stance on these topics.
