Welcome to Patients Campaigning for Cures
We work with patients, their families, friends, carers and valued medical professionals who all believe, like us, that medical researchers should have discovered many more treatments and cures by now. We understand why this is not the case and that there is a solution. We support MPs working in particular alongside Britain's foremost human rights defence barrister Michael Mansfield QC, who has endorsed the debate conditions for an historic public science hearing - as called for by Parliamentary EDM 66. This hearing will enable crucial evidence to debated and then judged by independent qualified scientists. The aim is to revoke a 70-year-old outdated law that still requires animal testing, despite its now proven failure as a predictive modality for human response to medicines and disease.
PARLIAMENT RECOGNIZES THE HARM CAUSED BY ANIMAL TESTING IS A HUMAN, PATIENT RIGHTS ISSUE
Parliamentary EDM 66 highlights our campaign and calls for a rigorous public scientific debate about the false claims that animal models can predict the responses of human patients, in medicine and disease research. Please visit this link to type in your postcode and ask your MP to sign this vital call for an effective medical hearing - with expert judges!
If you are a patient yourself, a relation, friend or carer for someone who is ill, please get in touch! We are developing a loud voice for effective medical research, tailor made by leading scientific experts "for the patient by the patient". ADD YOUR VOICE!
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 patients - which still receive the lion's share of research funding - is tantamount to asking our local vets to treat our illnesses, breaking all the guidelines about keeping animal medicines away from children.
