Contract Research

Dawbuts conducts a range of trials for industry, with a specialty for GCP-compliant trials designed for submission to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). Our aim is for full compliance to national, international and company regulations and protocols.

We have experience in internal parasites including nematodes, flukes and tapeworms of all production animal species and horses, external parasites including lice and fly in cattle and sheep as well as nutritional products for ruminants.

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Products used on animals in Australia require registration by the APVMA. This government body scientifically assesses all veterinary medicines and agricultural chemicals before they are released.

 At Dawbuts, we assist companies with this registration process by conducting:

  • Pharmacokinetic studies
  • Bioequivalence studies
  • Pilot efficacy studies
  • Multi-site efficacy and safety studies.

These are performed on-farm, or in pens in a research institution.  The objective is to generate data that will show if a product works against the target organisms (whether this is a virus, bacteria, parasite etc) and does not cause any ill-effects on the target animals.

Trials are planned, implemented, monitored and recorded under the GCP standard principles. These are detailed in VICH- the International Cooperation on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Veterinary Products.  Once completed,  an auditor checks that all procedures have been followed correctly.  This gives companies commissioning the trial, and the APVMA, confidence that the results are valid and could be repeated.
