Cancer Immunology Research

Cancer Immunology Research publishes outstanding original articles reporting major advances in cancer immunology that span the discipline from basic investigations in host-tumor interactions to developmental therapeutics in model systems, early translational studies in patients, and late-stage clinical trials. The journal disseminates knowledge of immunology to the cancer research community, catalyzing cross-disciplinary work that yields a deeper understanding of the host-tumor relationship, more potent cancer treatments, and improved clinical outcomes.

Procedures With Care

Procedures with Care Website by Newcastle University, NC3Rs and IAT, provides a series of resources to support the adoption of best practice for commonly used procedures in animal research. The focus is on rats and mice but further material will be added to expand the range of techniques and species in the future.

Searching for 3Rs Information- Published Literature Sources

There is a legal and ethical obligation to reduce the numbers of animals in research and to enhance the welfare of those that are used. This has led to an increased need for access to information on this topic. To help meet these obligations, members of the UK Pharmaceutical Industry set up a working party of information experts (I3R) with the aim "to encourage the development of best practice in the provision and retrieval of information on alternatives to animals in pharmaceutical R&D with special reference to Refinement, Reduction and Replacement (3Rs)."

ARRIVE Guidelines

ARRIVE (Animal Research: Reporting of In Vivo Experiments) guidelines are intended to improve the reporting of research using animals – maximising information published and minimising unnecessary studies.

CAMARADES

The CAMARADES collaboration provides a supporting framework for groups involved in the systematic review and meta-analysis of data from experimental animal studies. 

Our interests range from identifying potential sources of bias in animal work; developing recommendations for improvements in the design and reporting of animal studies; developing the meta-analysis methodology the better to apply it to animal studies; through to the selection of candidate stroke drugs for clinical trial. 

CAMARADES aims to provide a central focus for data sharing; to act as a resource for those wishing to carry out such reviews; to provide a web based stratified meta-analysis bioinformatics engine (under development!); and to act as a repository for completed reviews.
