All new medicines must first be tested in animals to ensure that they are safe. Animal research remains essential to fight diseases that still affect humans and animals.
We take concerns about the use of animals for testing seriously. Ethical Principles are at the heart of our animal research. We only use animals when it is necessary and when appropriate alternatives are not available.
We are also committed to developing alternative methods which will comply with the 3Rs principle.
We support the eTox project. This aims to develop a toxicology database to reduce the use of animal testing
Servier is also a member of Grice* set up to develop the highest standards of care for animal testing.
