A recent medical breakthrough in treating Diptheria skips the animal experimentation on horses and goes straight to viable medical treatments for humans. PETA funded the research through its International Animal Consortium. Additionally, the research can apply to developing medicine for other diseases. Jeffrey Brown, PETA Science Advisor, talked to Emil Guillermo about the significance of the breakthrough and how it shows the evolution of the animal rights activist. The impact goes beyond saving animals from researchers; it now involves contributing to an emerging, ethical, and cruelty-free scientific approach.
