Horzion - man and science today.
"American surgery I think has a leadership position only because we have been able to do experimental work on animals. English surgery unfortunately is so handicapped that they essentially depend on developments that are made in this country." (Dr. Adrian Kantrowitz, Maimonides Hospital, New York)
"We've had experience in transplanting hearts in dogs, and we think our chances of success are good." (Dr. Christiaan Barnard, Groote Schuur Hospital)
Each year in Britain thousands of strays are destroyed - yet medical research is desperately short of experimental animals. Some American doctors argue that our research is held back by a lack of suitable animals. Is this true? How necessary is vivisection? Is it cruel? Could research still be done without the laboratory animal?
Horizon reports tonight from America and Britain on the anti-vivisection lobby and the medical research that many argue would be impossible without the use of 'man's best friends'.
