For years in Europe has been battle abut animal experiments. This year hopefully the old directive (1986) will be revised.
For sure nobody believed that animal experiments would be banned in EU but everyone hoped primates experiments would be ended for good.
Nothing like that.
EU commision which was supposed to adopt in the midle of septebtember a new animal experiments directive, sudenly removed the item from the official agenda. Anyway the new proposal states that in some areas of science animal experiments has to be done - that means it will be possible to conduct experiments also on primates:
Stavros Dimas:
"The concerns surrounding the use of non-human primates, and great apes in particular, have been thoroughly considered and need to be addressed adequately in the proposal, consolidating the situation prevailing today in the EU."
"Let me add however that given the current state of scientific knowledge, the use of a limited number of other species of non-human primates is still unavoidable for a number of vital research programmes. This is especially true of research on severe global diseases. It would therefore be premature to set a timetable with fixed deadlines to phase out all use of non-human primates. I am convinced that better results can be achieved with the long-term commitment and engagement of all involved. We have to work together on an agreed strategy to develop alternatives, and I therefore call on you to play an active role in identifying the actions needed to turn this vision into a reality."
