University of Minnesota Medical School to Stop Using Live Animals

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) alleged the university was violating the federal Animal Welfare Act.
A letter from the head of emergency medicine, Dr. Joseph Clinton, says the university significantly reduced the use of live animals on July 1, and will eliminate their use by the end of the year.
