Australian researchers have found a way to test cancer treatments without killing lab mice

In a world-first from Australian scientists, research labs are now growing cancerous tumours in sponge cultures in the laboratory rather than on mice.

The process, which is faster and cheaper as well as kinder to animals, will also see new treatments for cancer fast tracked.

In ending the traditional time consuming process of growing cancerous tumours on mice, new drugs can be tested quicker to see if they work.
