Uso de animales en experimentación en la UMH en el año 2018

El número de animales utilizados por primera vez (en su primer uso) con fines de investigación y ensayo, para docencia, así como para la creación y el mantenimiento de líneas animales genéticamente alteradas en la UMH ha sido superior a los 10.000 animales en el año 2018. Sin embargo, se observa una ligera tendencia a la baja en comparación con el año 2017 (n = 13176 usos).

El año 2018, los animales usados en la Universidad Miguel Hernández representaron un 1,44% del total usado en España en 2018 (n = 836.096). Los mamíferos han constituido un 94,3% (n = 11402) de los animales usados en experimentación, siendo las especies utilizadas: el ratón, la rata, el hurón, la cobaya, el conejo y el cerdo. Los peces han constituido el 5,7% (n = 684) de los animales restantes.

El siguiente gráfico representa la proporción de animales que ha sido sometida a un procedimiento con un determinado grado de severidad. Se observa que el grado de severidad de los procedimientos que predomina es «Sin recuperación» con 4242 animales (35,1%), seguido de la severidad «Moderada» (n = 3075, 30,65%), severidad «Leve» (n = 2598, 21,5%) y, por último, «Severa» con 1541 animales (12,75%). En el informe de 2018 del Ministerio de Agricultura, Pesca y Alimentación, el porcentaje de procedimientos «Sin recuperación» y «Leve (como máximo)» se desvían considerablemente de los de la UMH («Sin recuperación» 4,75%, y «Leve (como máximo)» 52,12%); mientras que el porcentaje de procedimientos con severidad «Moderada» y «Severa» es similar: 35,90% y 7,22%, respectivamente.

En cuanto a la información recogida respecto a la finalidad científica del uso de los animales, destaca el uso de la investigación básica (81%) predominando la investigación en el «Sistema nervioso». La investigación traslacional y aplicada este año solamente ha representado el 7,2% de los usos, siendo la «Enfermedad de los animales» el principal campo de investigación.

Se puede encontrar más información en el informe de transparencia que se encuentra al principio de esta página.
