Press Officer Jerry Vlasak, MD states: "London's research is a colossal waste of taxpayer money, and soliciting money from industry groups to study their retail products is considered unethical by most physicians interested in research that might help their patients."

Fire damages UCLA scientist's house
Authorities say no one was home when a device left on the front porch ignited. The professor conducts animal research and has been the target of activists.
Authorities are investigating a fire caused by a device left today at a house owned by a UCLA professor who conducts animal research -- the second time the house has been targeted in less than four months.
The device was placed this morning on the front porch of a house owned by Edythe London, FBI officials in Los Angeles said.
London, a professor of psychiatry and bio-behavioral sciences and of molecular and medical pharmacology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, uses lab monkeys in her research on nicotine addiction.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller confirmed that officials with the Joint Terrorism Task Force were investigating the incident.
"It was ignited and caused damage to the property," Eimiller said. "No one was home at the time and nobody was hurt."
Eimiller said no one had claimed responsibility. But the agency is investigating the claim that the Animal Liberation Front used a garden hose to flood London's house Oct. 20 in an attempt to stop her animal experiments.
Authorities are also probing ties between that vandalism and a June incident in which an incendiary device was lighted, but did not explode, next to a car at the home of a UCLA eye disease researcher.
Previous News: Sabotage at Residence of UCLA Vivisector Edythe London
UCLA primate vivisector Edythe London in the news; KCAL Channel 9 in Los Angeles covers October 2007 ALF attack on this notorious animal abuser who addicts primates to nicotine and methamphetamines.
In an article last month [September] in San Francisco Gate, London was also noted to be conducting secret experiments at UCLA on adolescent children smoking cigarettes, funded by a million dollar grant from Phillip Morris. Attempts to obtain more information by that periodical were met with documents so heavily redacted by UCLA that they were useless; London and UCLA have both refused to comment.
London, a pharmacologist, has admitted publicly that her nicotine research on animals demonstrated there was so much inter-species variation in drug receptors, that no definitive statement could be made with regards to human effects of the drug.
Press Officer Jerry Vlasak, MD states: "London's research is a colossal waste of taxpayer money, and soliciting money from industry groups to study their retail products is considered unethical by most physicians interested in research that might help their patients. Of course, not being a clinician, London appears to have no interest in helping people, but instead derives pleasure in killing animals to further her own personal goals of academic and monetary enrichment. Why the people of California allow this abuse to continue at their expense is truly a mystery to me."
In recent months, activists picketing against UCLA primate vivisection have met with unconstitutional harassment by John Adams, a captain of the UCLA campus police; a lawsuit is pending in that matter. Underground organizations such as the ALF have stepped in when legal means of redress have been squelched. John Adams and his heavy-handed police tactics appear to be fueling the fire of resistance because of his inappropriate and illegal behaviors against legal activists; historically, when activists at demonstrations are persecuted, those watching from the sidelines in frustration find themselves intervening.
