Animal rightists and animal lovers all over the world have been
campaigning against animal experimentation for decades and finally, it
looks as if the end could be in sight. Top officials from the U.S.
National Institute of Health (NIH) and Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) recently announced a five-year deal promising to share
technology, information and other resources that will improve the
toxicity testing of chemical compounds used in food, medicine and
other products using robots rather than laboratory animals.

At last, it looks as if years of campaigning are about to pay off.
Animal rights organizations have said they will continue to keep up
the pressure to ensure that the agreement between the NIH and EPA
really does mean an end to animal experiments.
