ABSTRACT

Animal  experiments  are  of  paramount  importance  in  the  pre-clinical  screening  of  new chemical entity. On the other hand, various regulatory guidelines for animal experiments are becoming  more  stringent  in  the  face  of  worldwide  protests  by  animal  rights  activists. Moreover, simulated animal experiments’ softwares are being developed and they can be implemented in the postgraduate and graduate students’ curriculum for demonstration of standard physiological and pharmacological principles compared to real time animal experiments. In fact, implementation of virtual experiment will decrease hand on experience of  animal  experiments  among  medical  students,  but  after  medical  graduation,  animal experiment is lest utilized during their day to  day clinical practice. Similarly, in case of postgraduate pharmacology curriculum, computer based virtual animal experiments can facilitate teaching and learning in a short span of time with various protocols, without sacrificing any animal for already established experimental outcomes.

Keywords:  Clinical Practice, Graduate Teaching, Simulated Animal Experiment, New Chemical Entity, Postgraduate Study, Software.
