Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) Is leading a Senate effort to lobby Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Biden and director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), over the allegations of cruel experimentation on the beagle puppies.
As Change America previously reported, a bipartisan letter had already been signed by 23 House officials led by Representative Nancy Mace (RS.C.) and sent to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) regarding funding for tests on dozens of beagles.
Likewise, Paul and five other Sens Republicans, Roger Marshall, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Mike Braun, and Susan Collins, sent a letter to Fauci, the White Coat Waste Project told Changing America.
“We are writing to express our deep concern about recent reports of inhuman experiments on beagle puppies conducted by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at a cost of $ 1.68 million to taxpayers.” , writes the letter.
âEven more troubling, this test appears to have been optional on NIAID’s part because the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said itâ does not require that human drugs be studied in dogs. “”
In response to widespread condemnation, NIAID told Changing America that its standards for animal testing are high: peer reviewed and backed by people with veterinary skills.
“All animals used in NIH-funded research are protected by laws, regulations, and policies to ensure the smallest number of subjects and the greatest commitment to their welfare,” NIAID told Changing America in an email. âInstitutions receiving funds, including those in other countries, should conduct research involving animals in accordance with the public health department’s policy on the humane care and use of laboratory animals. ”
âThe proposed use of animals in research is evaluated during peer review for contract and grant proposals, and animals used in research should receive appropriate anesthesia and veterinary care. The principles of what is – and is not – allowed are governed both by regulations administered by the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare and by the recipient institution’s Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC ). “
NIAID also addressed the photo of two unconscious beagles with “their heads in wire cages filled with hungry sandflies.”
The agency insists the photo is from a manuscript published in July 2021 in the PLOS review on neglected tropical diseases.
The study falsely attributed that the NIAID supported the research, to which the publisher then added a correction.
As Changing America reported, the Americans for Medical Progress (AMP) released a statement claiming that NIAID is supporting beagle testing to develop a dog vaccine against leishmaniasis, a parasitic disease that affects dogs and dogs. humans.
The NIAID confirmed this statement, saying that leishmaniasis is a “particular threat to American troops and other personnel, as well as to American military dogs, in areas where the disease is endemic, and that” dogs were the model. animal needed for research “.
White coat waste project previously claimed several separate incidents where dog experiments were funded under Fauci’s administration of NIAID and adds new complaints from another incident. The group has been particularly critical of Fauci.
“[The thumbnail photo is ] from a dog experiment that took place in NIAID’s internal lab in Maryland in 2016. This is from Dr. Fauci’s NIH division. To be clear, we have until there exposed five distinct dog experiences funded by Dr. Fauci’s NIH division (NIAID) so far, âWhite Coat Waste Project told Changing America.
âIn this experiment where photos were taken, NIAID purchased beagle puppies and attached pods full of infected sandflies on their bare skin. [The] WCW records achieved [was] via FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] show that these were classified as “USDA Column E” experiments, meaning the dogs felt pain but pain relief was intentionally denied. “
