VectorB2B position statement
on animal studies

VectorB2B is committed to providing clear and transparent information regarding animal studies and animal care and welfare standards carried out in our partner institutions and therefore contribute to public clarification and a conscious and informed position in this debate of general interest. In January 2022, VectorB2B signed the Transparency Agreement on Animal Research in Portugal, an initiative supported by the Portuguese scientific community in collaboration with the European Animal Research Association (EARA) to promote a more consistent approach to communicating the scientific, ethical, and moral justifications for studies involving animals in Portugal. We acknowledge that it is not yet possible to completely replace the use of animals in drug discovery and development. Without the help of animals, most medicines, antibiotics, vaccines, and surgical techniques applied in human and veterinary medicine would not exist. Therefore, VectorB2B strongly endorses and encourages the application of the 3Rs principle: replacement of animals with alternative non-animal methods whenever possible, reduction of the number of animals used, and refinement of procedures to improve animal welfare.
