The article “Is animal experimentation fundamental?” was written by Armando d’Acampora, Lucas Rossi, and Zulmar Vasconcellos and was published in 2009. In the article the authors argue that animal experimentation is significant in undergraduate teaching and special attention needs to be provided to the public of its importance. The authors go on to claim that a human’s life may be saved in an emergency because of the procedures experimented prior on an animal. They also state that the reason vaccines and therapeutic tests were attained is because of animal models for research and teaching. Finally, they discuss how the ethical relationship between animals and humans strengthens the experimentation. The authors conclude by stating that the distorted information provided to the public is the biggest problem in animal experimentation.
