Thanks to animal research, they’ll be able to protest 23.5 years longer.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, animal research has helped extend our life expectancy by 23.5 years.  Of course, how you choose to spend those extra years is up to you.

    In my old lab that did diabetes research, we used to harvest rat testes first by taking the rats by the tail and whipping/spinning them fast and hard against a bench to stun them (carbon dioxide isn’t good against large rodents, plus the experiments were CO2-sensitive). We then used a dull blade to *crump* push down on their neck and sever their spines. Keep in mind that this was all approved by our Animal Review Board, but when the people upstairs complained about the noise of the rats dying, we had to go to the previously approved method, which was… Read more »

    Say suck it…what for would you need testes if you work on diabetes?
    You may use lab jargon, but your story is still bulls*t.

    “Insulin binding parameters have been measured in testicular membranes of streptozotocin diabetic male rats. Insulin binding decrease was ascribed to the well-known depressing effect of diabetes mellitus on circulating luteinizing hormone (LH). Because both LH and insulin receptors are modulated by pituitary LH and because of their reduction in testes of diabetic rats, we conclude that Leydig cell dysfunction is a secondary disorder associated with this complex metabolic condition.

    We use the fat pads right on top of the testes. Those have the most white adipocytes of anywhere on the rat. Brown fat isn’t as insulin responsive. The standard technique was to spin them against a desk, do a spinal dislocation, pinch the skin above the testes and cut open, then down, and use your two thumbs to pop the testes up and out of the opening, allowing cutting of the fat pad.

    Even better – in talking with my colleagues today about their work on cholera, they use an mouse model where the anuses have been sealed up with superglue so that they don’t poop out all the Vibrio.

    Lo, hence behold the beauty of Plant Phisiology!

    Suck it kind of stories is why I´d rather work for Monsatan (Greenpeaceish=Monsanto) than helping walk again assholes without enough self-preservation sense to use their safety belt.

    Stop animal research. Start human.

    Suck it still sounds full of it. No animal IRB would have approved the swing thunk method. Either Suck it is a liar or the person who said that it was approved was a liar. An IRB would have required a fast acting sedative, or if time was really important, the guiliotine that they had to go back to. This would have had to have been done in a seperate room to prevent stress in the other animals. No surprise you didn’t get anything out of it. Your techniques were awful (if even real). Tiki, you left out the important… Read more »
