22-12-2007 - Statistics published on experimental animals used in the EU The total number of animals used for experiments
in the EU in 2005 was 12.1 million, according to
the latest EU report of the statistics of laboratory
animals3.
As in previous years, by far the biggest group of
animals used was rodents and rabbits representing
more than three-quarters (78%) of all animals
used. As in 2002, no Great Apes (gorillas,
orangutans, chimpanzees, bonobos) were used in
experiments in the EU in 2005. About one third of
animals (33%) were used for fundamental
research, another third for the research and
development for human and animal health. The
rest included animals used for the production and
quality control of medical products (15%, of
which 3.5% for the veterinary field), toxicological
evaluation of products (8%), diagnostic purposes
(2%) and education (1.6%).
Since the report includes data from the 10 new
Member States it is not possible to draw direct
comparisons with the results of the previous
reports (1996, 1999, 2002).
