He adopted the utilitarian principle that moral. It also discusses the origins of vivisection, advances in human and non-human welfare made possible by animal experimentation, principle moral objections to the use of research animals, alternatives to the use of animals in research, and the regulatory umbrella under which experiments are conducted in Europe, USA and Australasia.

Animal experimentation has made a crucial contribution to many of the most important advances in modern medicine.
