We at Doctors Against Animal Experiments are committed to modern animal-free research and medicine. Animal experiments must no longer have a place in the 21st century!
The US company Covance operates in Münster, Germany, one of the largest animal testing laboratories for monkeys in Europe.
Every year up to 2,000 monkeys are killed here in excruciating toxicity tests.
Covance is thus the largest “monkey consumer” in Germany!
Now the group wants to expand: A new building for animal stalls is to be built, an advertisement is looking for animal care personnel (!!!).
Animal experiment factory “Covance Laboratories GmbH” in Münster, Germany
So soon more monkeys will suffer and die here!
Covance Inc. is one of the world’s largest contract research organizations with offices in 20 countries.
The branch in Münster specializes in reproductive toxicity tests on monkeys.
Pregnant monkeys are often given drugs or chemicals pumped into their stomachs or injected into the bloodstream daily to see the effect on their offspring.
The consequences can be stillbirths or malformations.
The substances are also given to male monkeys to test their fertility.
Such toxicity tests on our closest relatives are ethically unjustifiable and scientifically nonsensical, since the results only say something about the reaction of the monkeys, but do not allow predictions for humans.
