Lawrence L. Lapin
Laboratory mice are ideal test animals for medical testing medical treatments involving a range of medical procedures and treatments. A big advantage is that they have short life cycles, making them ideal subjects for evaluating genetic manipulation. Mouse physiology has plenty of human analogies, making them good surrogates for treatment validation before human trials.
A lion’s share of human drugs are first tested with mice to assess toxic effects and other reactions. Standard protocols require animal evaluations for most substances and many procedures. Skimping on animal testing can lead to serious violations.
Far worse would be not doing animal testing at all. In my book Adam… Forever, Dr. Adam Boatwright uses himself as a test subject. Being caught doing that could end his career, perhaps even lead to imprisonment. But he is in too much of a hurry to save his wife from familial cancer and too much in love to let anything stop him.
Prequel to the Adam’s Chronicles series. The story tells how geneticist and surgeon, Adam Boatwright, uses his skills to prevent his wife’s impending cancer. Adam engineers a super virus that continually generates chemicals that fight off viruses and cancer.
As a test, Adam infects himself with that mutant virus. But the side effect is prevention of aging, and he becomes virtually immortal. Convinced that long lives would destroy the human race, Adam becomes caught in a web of intrigue and conspiracy as he tries to stop profiteers from exploiting his super virus.
