GARCES GIRALDO, Luis Fernando. A PROPOSAL FOR ANIMAL TESTING REGULATIONS IN COLOMBIA. Escritos - Fac. Filos. Let. Univ. Pontif. Bolivar. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.53, pp.411-444. ISSN 0120-1263.

Animals have made possible to science the production of new knowledge within the fields of Biology and Physiology. This knowledge has allowed the development of methods of diagnosis and treatments that improve the quality of life of human beings and animals. Therefore, the use of animals for testing should be made with respect, and considering the possible reactions of the animals and their own ethology. Animal testing might remain under debate in the coming years due to the necessity to adapt the care of the animals used for testing to the opportunities and challenges that might come in the future. Thus, it will be relevant for researchers to remain up to date with the progress of procedures. Bearing all this in mind, it is necessary to examine the ethical appropriateness of the legal aspects considered by Colombian regulations concerning scientific experimentation and testing. Such aspects are discussed in the article and a proposal for a National Legislation that takes into account all the technical, scientific and bioethical elements that are involved in animal testing is outlined.

Palabras clave : Bioethics Legislation; Regulations; Animal Testing.
