Welcome to Patients Campaigning for Cures
We also work with patients' families and friends, their carers and valued medical professionals who all believe, like us, that medical research should have discovered many more effective treatments and cures by now. We understand why this has not been the case and what the solution is. We support MPs that are working in particular alongside Britain's foremost human rights defence barrister Michael Mansfield QC - who has endorsed the conditions for historic public scientific debates - so that up-to-date medical evidence can be heard by scientists, the Government and public in order to change now clearly outdated laws and speed up the arrival of effective treatments and cures.
PARLIAMENT RECOGNIZES THE HARM CAUSED BY ANIMAL TESTING IS A HUMAN, PATIENT RIGHTS ISSUE
Please visit this link to ask your MP to sign newly tabled Parliamentary EDM 373, holding animal experiments to effective, public medical account in thorough scientific debate hearings that will be overseen by independent judges from the relevant fields of scientific expertise.
What makes each patient unique?
In a word: genes. Current medical knowledge now understands that each of us has evolved to be a highly complex individual, with a totally unique genetic profile.
Take me to the sophisticated state-of-the-art research which is making headway now and helping patients find effective treatments!
There are many incredibly exciting, valid research methods that are providing scientists with the answers they need in the search for treatments and cures for today's diseases.
Why we do not ask vets to treat us
- The above title represents no more than simple common sense, but it supports the serious fact that the continued use of laboratory animal models of human disease - which still receive the lion's share of research funding, despite not being able predict what happens in human patients - is tantamount to asking our local vets to treat our illnesses, breaking all the guidelines about keeping animal medicines away from children.
