Organizations: Alternatives

Humane Society of the United States and Proctor & Gamble.

The goal of this web site is to advance non-animal methods of toxicity testing through online discussion and information exchange.

AXLR8 is a coordination action funded under the European 7th Framework Programme for Health. Its purpose is to monitor EU FP6/FP7-funded 3Rs research activities and related international initiatives with the aim of accelerating the transition to a toxicity pathway-based paradigm for chemical safety assessment.

This pan-European platform is a mechanism to reach consensus between interested parties, i.e. animal welfare, industry, academia and governmental institutions as an efficient way to stimulate research into alternatives to animal experiments and enforcing the acceptance of alternatives in experimental practice.

Hosted by the European Union's Joint Research Centre, Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP), this reference laboratory focuses on the development and scientific and regulatory acceptance of alternative testing methods aimed at replacing, reducing or refining the use of laboratory animals. In 2011, the tasks previously assigned to ECVAM (the European Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods) were moved to EURL ECVAM.
