Like every pharmaceutical company, AstraZeneca conducts experiments on animals. According to AstraZeneca's own website, in 2011 AstraZeneca has used approximately 398,000 animals.

Signed. I was offered a position with AstraZeneca but declined even though I personally would not be involved with animals. It was enough that I knew they used them. There are abundant positions with pharmaceutical manufacturers for QC microbiologist that have no/none animal testing. They simply manufacture the approved drug. Many of them/if not all are made in completely sterile environments. Thats it.

Noted and "signed" with comment: "There is no point in destroying the lives of healthy animals in an attempt to extend human life that is constantly deteriorating in quality. People need social services and financial support more than they need drugs. A lot of people, including myself, would prefer to have the right to refuse medical treatment or would be willing to volunteer for testing. Population studies are an alternative to testing on animals because some people are naturally more resistant to certain illnesses."

I could not use the "share using Facebook" function because I have already used it today for the maximun 16 friends. I am not sure why sometimes it lest me include 50 friends.

The "visit site" link takes one to an "Occupy for Animals" website. There are endless topics that would interest me but I got "bogged" in the comments under an article on vegetarianism and spent hours. That is a typical example of why I spend so much time on the internet but have nothing to show in the way of comments (that I did not end up making on Care2).

noted, signed, and shared-----cannot put into words what I have to say about anybody that does this to animals.
They definitely need to experiment on themselves and anyone else that would hurt an animal or human being!!!
Blessings to all who love Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

Signed. God almighty that was so disturbing,so much so i just watched the opening 10 seconds of the video clip. This is unacceptable and these experiment labs need to be laid to rest ASAP. We as humans are pathetic. May the new year bring hope to all suffering animals.

How heartbreaking! What kind of individuals are capable of performing such acts on innocent animals? Some humans look down upon animals without even realizing that they have allowed themselves to become the lower life form. They are absolutely pathetic!

Signed and noted with sadness. Thank you for posting this, Cristina!
