More maths, fewer mice: web tool helps reduce lab animal use

In clinical efficacy trials for medical treatments, mathematical corrections are often used during the course of the study to optimise the number of participating patients. In earlier stages of research, involving laboratory animals, such mathematical corrections are not yet common.However, they could help reduce the number of animal experiments and thus the number of laboratory animals required.Research at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel by PhD candidate Susanne Blotwijk, attached to Professor Kurt Barbé's Biostatistics and Medical Informatics research group, is now making this possible.
