I was very disturbed to learn that Quincy Bioscience is conducting invasive and lethal animal tests to study apoaequorin, the active ingredient in Prevagen®, and other aspects of brain function. Quincy Bioscience has supported studies in which rats had apoaequorin directly infused into the brain before being killed. Other studies supported by Quincy Bioscience involved inducing fear in rats by applying electric shocks to their feet, after which they were killed.
I was also disappointed to learn that Quincy Animal Health has conducted research on beagles for the product Neutricks. While these studies were non-invasive, I oppose animals being subjected to a life of laboratory housing in order to take part in experimental studies. All dogs deserve a loving home, not life in a lab.
Quincy Bioscience assures the public that Prevagen® is manufactured without harming jelly fish. Obviously you understand that harming animals is a matter of great concern to the public.
Please end all support for or participation in animal experiments and adopt a full and ethical non-animal testing policy. Until that happens, I will boycott Prevagen® and Neutricks, and tell my friends and family to do the same.
I would appreciate a response addressing my concerns.
