Kliphuis, S. 2017. Humane Endpoints website huge success in Spain and the rest of the world. Laboratory Animals 51(2), 218-219.

The Humane Endpoints website (https://www.humane-endpoints.info/) provides information and training modules on how 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. That way, animal experimentation can be carried out more humane while improving the quality of science.
