In 1912, French surgeon Alex Carrel used dogs to study how to rejoin severed nerves. This was the first step in organ’s transplantation (Clayman). </li></ul>
  4. 4. History of animal research <ul><li>71 of the noble prizes for medicines won in the last few years are awarded to scientists who used animals in their research. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Examples: <ul><li>The strongest example that supports animal testing is the discovery of the polio vaccine. This vaccine was first injected in mice and then into monkeys. (“History of Animal “) </li></ul><ul><li>The most significant contribution that supports animal experimentation is with insulin.
