R. Michael Conn and James Parker make an important point in their editorial “Animal rights: Reaching the public” (20 Nov. p. 1417): The scientific community can and must do more to tell the public why animal research is important.

The American Physiological Society (APS) has taken a step in this direction by publishing an eight-page color brochure containing a series of essays on this subject. The brochure, Questions People Ask About Animals in Research.With Answers From the American Physiological Society, is intended to provide the public with informative and readable responses to their legitimate concerns about why we need to use animals in research. The brochure may be viewed at www.faseb.org/aps/pubaff/animals/index.html. Single copies are available at no charge from the APS Public Affairs Office at the address below.
