Animals and Quincy Bioscience

Most significantly, all of us at Quincy Bioscience love animals. Click here to see many of the personally owned pets of the associates here at Quincy Bioscience. We have a strong desire to practice ethical testing in animals and humans for the purpose of enhancing the health of all people and their pets!

Our primary studies which prove the safety of Prevagen (apoaequorin), relied on testing conducted by world-renowned and highly respected labs and expert toxicologists that have been in operation for over 40 years and have achieved more than 35 Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) assessments.

Additional studies have been focused on the brain health enhancing qualities of apoaequorin, Prevagen’s main ingredient. To the extent necessary, this testing has involved rodents. This testing has been conducted under standard and ethical laboratory practices.

In order to satisfy FDA requirements and protect our consumers, Quincy Bioscience has gone above and beyond the required minimal testing standards to achieve the GRAS designation for apoaequorin. This type of testing is required by the FDA to demonstrate the safety of apoaequorin.

SAFETY ASSESSMENT I    SAFETY ASSESSMENT II

Quincy has commissioned several studies on cognitive function in beagles. The results of these studies were published in the Journal of Veterinary Behavior in 2015. No beagles were harmed in any way, and the testing was conducted under stringent standards. Like all canine research of its kind, Quincy’s beagle studies were aimed at promoting healthy, happy lives for dogs. Pet food companies routinely commission the same types of research in an effort to promote wellness in dogs and cats.

Quincy Bioscience continues to support research at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee through a sponsored research agreement, which supports research in brain cell mechanics and mechanisms of enhancing brain health.

Quincy Bioscience respects the good work that organizations do to raise awareness towards needless animal cruelty and we wish them success in their mission.

The Need for Research

Nearly every medical breakthrough in the last 100 years has resulted directly from research using animals. We can’t help people with their brain health needs without human clinical trials and animal research.

  • Animal research is highly regulated, with laws in place to protect animals from mistreatment. In addition to local and state laws and guidelines, animal research has been regulated by the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA) since 1966.
  • At the facilities we work with/partner with/contract with, animals are treated humanely, both for the animals’ sake and to ensure reliable test results. The key to all scientific research is the generation of trustworthy data from all types of experiments.
  • Animal testing is simply required by the government to assure safety of food ingredients and ingredients used in dietary supplements.
  • Animals themselves benefit from the results of animal testing. Dogs and cats across the country benefit from Neutricks® which was developed through canine cognitive clinical trials. More than 28 million pets (dogs and cats) in the U.S have mild memory issues. Independent animal research has reported that Neutricks has positive benefits on animals with mild memory issues.
