Trial design

Trial design

VESO is dedicated to providing valid and relevant clinical and pre-clinical trial data through in vivo fish trials with focus on vaccines and pharmaceuticals, health feeds, and genetic improvement programmes.

We also offer long-term studies to evaluate the duration of protection (DOP) after vaccination. Duration trials can be run in parallel with field trials. Data from such studies are important to demonstrate to which extent the fish are protected throughout the production cycle.

We are sincerely dedicated to ensuring that trials involving fish are performed humanely and with a minimum of fish use. Our study directors can help optimize trial design to combine cost efficiency and ethical aspects with particular focus on adaptive trial design, whenever applicable.
