Congress has an opportunity that only comes once every five years to make major strides in ending animal testing of new drugs. We need your help today!

Right now, Congress is deliberating the next Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA), legislation passed every five years to allow the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to collect fees from the pharmaceutical industry. This legislation also includes policy provisions to improve drug development that intend to remove requirements for animal testing of new drugs.

Although well intentioned, the language in the PDUFA legislation will not end animal testing requirements because the provisions address the law only. FDA's regulations, which currently require animal use, must be updated to match the changes to the law.
