Procter & Gamble Statement on Use of Animals in Research*:
Current scientific knowledge and regulatory frameworks can require that animals be used in the development of new methods to safeguard humans and wildlife. There is, however, an expectation that all options to reduce, refine or replace animal use will be incorporated into any research proposal. Applicants should therefore include an evaluation of whether and why vertebrate animal use is necessary for their proposed research and also describe the treatment (i.e., collection, dosing, housing, euthanasia) of any vertebrates to be used in the research.
