LETTER: End animal tests

Sir: Once again, the controversial subject of animal rights is in the press (Polly Toynbee; "Animal rights can damage your health", 22 April). And once again, the image concentrated on is a negative one.

Most "anti-vivisectionists" really just expect more of modern science. The use of animal models is positively archaic, compared with new technologies such as computers, body scanners and cell cultures. These new methods can produce fast, accurate, reliable and relevant data that can only result in higher quality research.
