The Mandatory Alternatives Petition, submitted by NEAVS and others, seeks to change the way drug testing is done in laboratories before drugs are tested on people. The MAP asks the FDA to mandate, when available, scientifically proven drug testing methods that replace animal use.
In 2010, the FDA stated it intends to issue guidance on the use of non-animal testing methods. However, despite repeated meetings and MAP supplemental submissions from NEAVS and other organizations, the agency has yet to issue guidance or mandate the use of superior alternatives to animal testing.
Please add your name to a letter urging the FDA to encourage and mandate
the use of non-animal testing methods
