No, ZERO.

To treat human illnesses and disease, test and operate on humans.

To treat animal illnesses and disease, test and operate on animals.

Simple really.

it depends, I do feel that cruel experiments that are unnecessary are certainly unethical, but I am seriously on board to find a cure or vaccine for HIV & AIDS by any means possible and I find that animal testing may be necessary in this case

No. It's absolutely cruel! It's animal abuse.
