CHOOSING THE RIGHT MODEL: MINIATURE SWINE MODEL SELECTION CRITERIA FOR TOXICOLOGY AND PHARMACOLOGY STUDIES
Learn how toxicology and pharmacology study parameters can affect which miniature swine model you should use in your preclinical study!
Several different miniature swine models are commonly used as a second species in nonclinical research. Determining which miniature swine model to select for your study involves developing a scientific rationale that takes into account special consideration for toxicology and pharmacology study parameters, and a thorough evaluation of the comparative data of commonly used miniature swine strains.
