New “Test Tube” Cancer Model Could Reduce Animal Testing

Written by PETA | May 16, 2007

Have you heard about this? It’s a pretty amazing story out of the UK about researchers at Queen Mary’s School of Medicine in London, who developed a unique three-dimensional model of human breast cancer in a test tube. Pretty cool.


Mice are not test tubes with whiskers . . .

This development has the potential to save countless animals from horrible suffering, and it also has amazing potential to save human lives, since the results will actually be applicable to curing cancer in humans, unlike animal experiments.

Hats off to the Queen Mary’s researchers who came up with this exciting new breakthrough. It puts us one step closer to a world without animal testing . . .

    How fantastic finally something to be joyful about. The day I am really waiting for is the day we can all look in the mirror and say to ourselves we made a difference Because all the animals shall pass on gently and quietly as it always should have been. Great job Queen Mary’s….. Judith The Buddhist

    Fantastic! If there’s a will there’s a way if more money was invested in alternative methods for vivisection it would be a huge step forward for these victimized animals. It would also show up those people who actually enjoy hurting animals.
