“Minor invasive procedures required as the part of the experimentation on feeding trials, breeding experiments and live-stock management studies which require blood collection from the experimental animals to further study the clinical parameters may be approved by the IAEC, keeping in view the nature of experimentation, volume of blood to be collected, its frequency and general health conditions of the experimental animals. The other protocols related to the large animals required major invasive techniques must be sent to CPCSEA with recommendations of IAEC”.
