Animals and Alternatives in Testing: History, Science, and Ethics

Joanne Zurlo, Deborah Rudacille, and Alan M. Goldberg


The authors would like to thank John Frazier, Associate Director of the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing, for his contributions to our understanding of many of the issues discussed in this book, particularly validation and toxicokinetic modeling. His work in these areas has been crucial to the development of the discipline.

We would also like to thank all those who read and commented on early drafts of the text. This list, which is far too long to reproduce in its entirety, includes members of the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing Advisory Board, particularly Andrew Rowan, Robert Roth, Bruce Ewald, Kurt Stenn, Myra Barker, James Yager, and Eve Lloyd Thompson; Martin Stephens, of the Humane Society of the United States; Adele Douglass, of the American Humane Association; Richard Traystman, of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; and the National Association of Biology Teachers.

Finally, we would like to thank members of the public, individuals in the corporate sector, animal protection groups, and the research community, who have over the years asked difficult questions about animal use, safety, and scientific progress. Their refusal to accept glib responses to complex ethical, scientific, and policy questions has caused all of us to constantly reevaluate, expand, and clarify our thinking on these subjects.
