If this mouse model were not so ubiquitous, this would be funny! This paper came none too soon, Guess what? Animal lovers want to retire primates from future studies!
4 for 4 and it’s still February.
DemocRATs are a close approximation of rodents, apart from the lack of a brain, heart, and spine. Suitable replacement model?
The mice lied?
Add TB to the list.
FReepmail me if you want on or off my combined microbiology/immunology ping list.
Imagine that. Humans are not mice.
But, I'm not a complainer. )

I thought it was pretty well known for decades that animal testing had serious limitations, could only be used for specific mapping, and that any results were uncertain until human trials were completed. What’s new about this “discovery”?
Always seemed to me mice were very susceptible to cancer.
The mouse test was the creation of Dr. Ames. In the journal Science (lead journal in USA), quite a number of years ago, Dr. Ames caused to be published a quarter page sidebar which said that while his test could predict with high accuracy that which induced cancer in mice, it could not predict what those same agents would cause in any other species.
Note the “any other species” phrase.
Science in America, like all areas where the Feral Gubment intruded, has degenerated.
The Guru suggests science be funded by local sources, not the Federal Gubment.
The Guru also recommends reducing Federal taxes and thus leaving what tax revenues now wastefully squandered by Fedzilla funding mechanisms in the tax payers control. sOd doing will assure that research once again will have a multiplicity of funding sources.
Fedzilla ‘single source’ funding has worked as well in science as it will in medicine under ObamaCare.
