Subject: Call and email on behalf of the dogs and primates!
For almost 30 years, Ohio State University (OSU) experimenter George Billman has used taxpayer dollars to cut dogs open and induce heart attacks in them. He inserts a cuff around an artery, sews the dogs back up, then forces the dogs to run on a treadmill. He then tightens the cuff to block blood flow to the heart, causing a heart attack....Call Billman and send him an email to let him know that what he is doing is barbaric and a shameless waste of our tax dollars! He is at 614-292-5189 and firstname.lastname@example.org
Thomas Paines Corner: Myriad taxpayer swindles $45,000 worth
We will use the Morphine-SIV-macaque model to explore these concepts. Our hypothesis is that morphine will cause a non-inflammatory, continuous build up of SIV in the brains of infected macaques, with a prognosis for more rapid progression to development of encephalitis than non-treated infected animals, and that onset of this syndrome would be accelerated following withdrawal of the drug from infected, chronically exposed animals. Epidemiological studies on HIV-infected persons addicted to opioids have led to controversial conclusions.
Some studies show that morphine worsens the infections, while others claim amelioration of the infection. The SIV-macaque-Model of HIV pathogenesis will be used to explore the mechanisms of this drug on infection in the brain.
Contact Barbara Atkinson, KU Med’s Executive Vice Chancellor, and tell her that what KU Med is doing to primates is wrong and to stop wasting our tax money on cruelty and fraudulent science! She is at (913) 588-1440 and BATKINSON@kumc.edu.
Contact Francis Collins, Director of the National Institute of Health (KU Med’s source of funding) at 301-496-2433 and email@example.com and tell him to stop providing public monies to a “research facility” that was cited for 160 violations of animal welfare laws by the USDA!
