3R Days 2021: Akos Szakmary - Unrelieved pain and what it does to your experiments
Adequate pain management is one of the most important approaches to ensure animal welfare in animal experiments. However, there is often concern that certain anesthetics may influence the results of scientific studies. Therefore, there is often a reluctance to replace existing protocols with more modern and effective approaches to analgesia.
At the upcoming 3R-Days, Dr. Akos Szakmary, member of the Advisory Committee for Animal Experiments at the Vetmeduni Vienna, will explain why the concern about possible influences on study results should be the very reason to improve pain management and what influence pain can have on study results.
