The problem with testing medicines in mice is that only a tiny minority of them actually have a similar effect in people as the systems are different enough that the very specific effects of interest are very specifically not the same. And that's with a fellow vertebtate. C. elegans? That's quite a bit farther down the tree of complexity though it's a fabulous system for testing purposes.
