  • Each year the UK Home Office publishes animal research statistics. These include the number of 'procedures' performed that year. The term procedure refers to any act that may cause an animal a level of pain equivalent to or greater than the introduction of a hypodermic needle. Even breeding a genetically modified animal classifies as a procedure as the genetic changes can cause distress.
