Our next Expert Working Group – Bone marrow irradiation and reconstitution

28th May 2021

Our series of RSPCA-led Expert Working Groups has produced guidance on reducing (and ideally avoiding) severe suffering in potentially severe procedures including sepsis, rheumatoid arthritis, experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE) and spinal cord injury. Each group includes scientists, animal technologists and lab animal veterinarians from industry and academia, to bring a range of expertise and perspectives and ensure all the recommendations are feasible and will achieve real results.

The next topic in the series is bone marrow irradiation and reconstitution and the group is just being set up – we are aiming to finalise the new guidance in 2022.
