rats) for medical research. They would use alternative techniques.
In fact, they are doing so increasingly. Non-animal methods

mathematical and computer models, advanced tissue and cell
cultures and scanning technology.
However, the scientiﬁc consensus is that many key questions can
still only be answered by animal studies.
