Experiments on baby mice at Arthritis Research UK-funded research centre

Posted on the 2nd November 2016

A research centre founded with money from Arthritis Research UK, provided a grant to support gruesome experiments conducted on a number of ten-week-old mice.

The experiment involved these beautiful animals having their knees surgically damaged. At a later date they suffered injections either into a vein or directly into their injured knee. The animals were imaged numerous times, so they would have been captured, restrained and given an anaesthetic or a sedative. After the final imaging session, the mice were killed by having their necks broken. Animal Aid has highlighted numerous times the species differences which make data gathered from animals unreliable for applying to humans.

Please ask Arthritis Research UK to stop supporting animal experiments
