Ethical use of animals in scientific research
A number of articles have appeared in the press recently regarding a visit to the National Institute of Immunology (NII), New Delhi, by an inspection team of the Committee for the Prevention of Cruelty in Scientific Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA). The articles were extremely critical of the condition of the monkeys kept in the NII and its use of animals in scientific research. One article stated that the CPCSEA had recommended closure of the primate house at the NII, in effect terminating all research at the Institute involving these animals.
