Can the use of animals in R&D be justified and, if so, what arguments can be used? Does research depend upon a narrow anthropocentric thinking that would only attribute a moral status to humans or is it possible to classify animals as intrinsically valuable beings and still allow their use in an experimental setting? I will propose using the position of moderate biocentrism as a starting point for all moral considerations and conclude with a strong call for the global application of the 3R principles proposed by Russell and Burch [1].

It seems that most lay people expect scientists to deliver relevant results that can be directly applied to a given field as soon as their studies are concluded. Moreover, there is a growing demand for scientists to make justified claims on the value of a planned study long before they obtain their first results. In the case of animal research, this translates into the demand that scientists balance the anticipated harm inflicted on the animal against the (medical) value of the results they hope to generate with the study.
