In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, animal models are part of every drug and vaccine being developed.
Animal rights groups are touting vaccines in development such as Moderna’s mRNA-1273 vaccine because they claim these types of vaccines bypassed animal testing. However, animal rights groups don’t tell you that mRNA-1273 and other potential coronavirus vaccines have already been tested in animals and will continue to be tested in mice and monkeys by the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
This is a time for responsibility, not rhetoric, in the face of the pandemic.
That’s why FBR created an infographic to illustrate the biomedical community’s three-step, strategic approach to containing and conquering coronavirus with animal models.
