Welcome to Patients Campaigning for Cures

OUR MISSION

Patients Campaigning For Cures (PCFC) is established and run by patients and their families - for patients and their families. We campaign with leading scientific experts to speed up the arrival of  treatments and 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 conditions for an historic public science hearing - as called for by Parliamentary EDM 278. This hearing will enable crucial evidence to be heard and judged by independent experts from the relevant fields of science. The aim is to revoke a 74-year-old outdated law that still requires animal testing, despite its now proven medical failure in predicting human responses to medicines and disease research.

PARLIAMENT RECOGNIZES THE HARM CAUSED BY ANIMAL TESTING IS A HUMAN, PATIENT RIGHTS ISSUE

Public scientific hearing on animal experiments - Early Day Motions - UK Parliament

Parliamentary EDM 175 closed in May with 110 cross-party MPs opposing the failed practice of animal modelling. The EDM has just been re-tabled as EDM 278, calling for a rigorous public scientific hearing about the false claims that animal models can predict the responses of human patients, in sfatey testing and disease research. The EDM calls for a vital and effective medical hearing, judged by indepedent experts from the relevant fields of science. 

TAKE ACTION! Simply type in your postcode at the following link to ask your MP to sign the EDM, for a science hearing to end the failed practice of animal experiments: For Life On Earth (eaction.online)

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

  1. 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.

Men can never be women, & animals can never be humans. It’s time for the @GOVUK to stop claiming animals identify as humans. Dogs, & other animals, completely fail as *predictive* models of humans in medical research, & complexity science explains why.

Why are we continuing to invest 100s of millions of dollars into animal studies with the delusion that they will provide clinical guidance for humans? Why are we, the public, not demanding more accountability? Who is benefitting?

It's not possible to 'humanise animals', you need to go back to school & study evolutionary biology: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0079610713000539 #EDM175

There’s an urgent need to step outside old 1959 3Rs replacement laws, and ask the Gov. to hold the #EDM278 science hearing, to shed clear light.
