Washington – Please see the next assertion from PETA neuroscientist Dr. Katherine Roe relating to the obvious fabrication of Alzheimer’s analysis knowledge as investigated by Science.

It is a devastating loss for people who want viable therapies for Alzheimer’s illness and for the hundreds of thousands of animals who suffered as a result of somebody cared extra about accolades than good science. Sadly, it’s simply one in every of 1000’s of examples demonstrating the tendency of animal experimenters to overstate the worth of their analysis and of the Nationwide Institutes of Well being’s (NIH) nearly full lack of scrutiny regarding the way it spends taxpayer {dollars}. On this case, plainly experimenters utilizing mice and rats have misled your entire Alzheimer’s analysis group, losing tons of of hundreds of thousands of {dollars} in public funding of efforts to treatment a illness that kills greater than one million people every year. This case comes as no shock to PETA, which has spent a long time exposing experimenters’ lies and NIH’s refusal to take motion. The whole system should be overhauled, and once more, we urge NIH to simply accept PETA’s Analysis Modernization Deal.
