Institute Animal Ethics Committee

Introduction: 
Animals have been used throughout the history of scientific research. It has been estimated that approximately 15 million animals are used to test drugs. The animal testing is based on the grounds of morality, the necessity of the procedure, whether such tests are actually needed and whether such tests practically provide any useful information to the scientific society.
 
The Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) has been constituted under the provisions of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. It gives the guidelines for the conduct of animal experiments. CPCSEA has been in existence for the past 50 years and its role of is not to cause any hindrance to scientific research involving experiments on animals but to ensure that:
 
  1. Animals are maintained in a proper and healthy manner.
  2. Animals are not subjected to unnecessary pain or suffering before, during and after performance of experiments on them
  3. There is no unnecessary sacrifice of animals for the sake of science. There should be no duplication of research.
  4. Animals are kept in disease free condition to ensure proper data collection.
  5. Animals are procured from registered breeders.
  6. Experiments on large animals are to be avoided whenever it is possible to achieve the same results by experiments on small laboratory animals.
 
For effective implementation of these rules and guidelines, the Institutional Animals Ethics Committees (IAEC) has been constituted in IGMCRI.

 

This is a scientific body nominated by the Head of the Institution. The IAEC examines proposals for conducting experiments on small animals, examines the necessity of performing the experiment, and ensures that experiments are not performed in a routine manner. All decisions are taken with the approval of the Committee.
