Animal Welfare Policy

Animals are essential in research to develop drugs and medical procedures to treat diseases. They have contributed to many medical breakthroughs in recent history, such as diabetes, cancer. We believe the welfare of animals used in research is of critical importance with appropriate housing, trained staff and the use of refined methods essential not only in ensuring a high standard of animal care and welfare but the generation of robust and reproducible data.

 

Animal welfare is our top priority at RenaSci. We employ the highest standards of animal care and implement the principles of the 3Rs (replacement, reduction and refinement) to all studies. RenaSci’s Statisticians ensure the use of optimal experimental design. The use of animals in research is regulated by the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (amended in 2012). These regulations extend the European Directive 2010/63/EU, which sets out measures for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes.

All in vivo studies at RenaSci are conducted in state-of-the–art-facilities with veterinary care by our professional, fully trained staff, in complete compliance with relevant legislation and internationally-accepted guidelines.
