Abstract

Since 1990, the alternative methods and the 3Rs principles have been promoted in Cuba. National consensus where all parties concerned have been represented, including animal welfare, industry, academia and government for introducing alternatives methods in the pharmaco-toxicological evaluation of new pharmaceuticals have been development. Educational programmes where 3Rs are promoted in different specialties of our university have been introduced. During these years, different assays as useful tools for preclinical in vitro screening of both synthetic and natural drugs have been development and validated. At this work, Cuban experience on this way is revised.
