While that makes sense from an efficiency perspective, the redirection of funding away from animal studies may not be neutral. There will either be a tendancy toward greater conservativsm - sticking close to known parameters for very real concerns about human health - http://www.i-sis.org.uk/LDTC.php or a vey real danger of exporting the risks associated with animal testing to human populations that are both poorly representative (deprivation is a confounder in health research) and which lack the democratic protections needed to keep research honest - http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/02/testing-drugs-on-the-developing-world/273329/
I don't really understand why the article is presenting itself as a piece specifically on animal research when none of the criticisms are specific to animal research.
Hardly unique to animal research!
