Introduction to animal testing and the 3Rs

Animal testing is still one of the most discussed topics in biomedical research.
When talking about animal testing, following the 3Rs (reduce - replace - refine) is the most common concept to reduce and avoid distress for laboratory animals. Since most people are faced with animal experiments during their scientific career, it is essential to know how distress arises and how it can be handled.
