The Efficiency of Animal Testing For many years, the primary way to make advances in biomedical science was through experimentation on animals, also known as vivisection. This method involves using different species of animals in experiments and developmental procedures to determine toxicity, dosing, and effectiveness of test drugs before proceeding to human clinical trials. However; the use of animals in testing laboratories is becoming less common due to improved alternative options. Animal experimentation is unreliable and less efficient than the alternative options. Animals have been used in experimentation and testing as long as humans have been curious. Testing on animals’ dates back to second century Rome, when a physician named Galen began dissecting goats and pigs, a practice which later earned him the title “the father of vivisection.” The first observations of true significance to modern science are said to be made in the 1600s, when William Harvey used animals to observe and describe the blood circulatory system. Years Later, in the early nineteenth century, Louis Pasteur infected sheep with anthrax, thus proving the germ theory of medicine – an important advancement which proved that infections did not arise
