Excellent review for the Humane Endpoints website

The Humane Endpoints website has been reviewed in American Journal Lab Animal and receives excellent evaluation for content, appearance and usability.

The Humane Endpoints website (www.humane-endpoints.info) learns to recognize humane endpoints in laboratory animals. This helps to prevent further distress in the animals by removing the animals from the experiment (e.g. euthanizing the animals) or by applying analgesia. The website contributes to refinement: the prevention of unnecessary distress in laboratory animals. 
The website is already successfully used in several laboratory animal science courses worldwide. It has 1200 unique visitors a month and over 500 registered users for the secured section of the website.
