Vaccines and Biologics

PETA Science Consortium International e.V. works to replace the use of animals in the development and regulatory testing of human and veterinary vaccines, antitoxins, and other biologics. To advance the development and use of non-animal methods in biologic drug manufacturing and assessment, Science Consortium members collaborate with companies that manufacture these products as well as international regulatory agencies and standards organisations, including the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare, the US Food and Drug Administration, the US Department of Agriculture, the US Pharmacopeia, India’s Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation, and the Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission. Once non-animal test methods gain regulatory approval in one region, the Science Consortium engages with other stakeholders to ensure that testing policies and official methods are revised and harmonised internationally.
