Intervention assessment on clinical efficacy under field conditions
The overall objective is to assess clinical efficacy of selected AVANT interventions under field conditions. The most promising interventions against enteric and respiratory diseases will be selected based on the efficacy and safety outcomes generated by pre-clinical testing, regulatory assessment and market considerations. Farm trials will be designed and conducted to measure the effects of each selected intervention on pig disease and productivity. The specific objectives are to:
- Select the interventions with the highest market potential
- Design clinical trials and select farms to obtain statistically meaningful results on efficacy of interventions
- Confirm efficacy of interventions in clinical trials on commercial pig herds
SEGES coordinates the activities and performs the farm trial in Denmark. Cooperl, Laboratorios Ovejero and Schothorst Feed Research perform the farm trials in France, Spain and Netherlands, respectively. University of Copenhagen perform bacteriological analysis of the samples collected during the trials. All partners participate in the selection of the interventions to be tested under field conditions, and in the design and dimensioning of the field trials via the Executive Board.
