The CONFIRM Initiative

The CONFIRM Initiative is aimed at generating evidence that minipigs are a relevant non-rodent species for the immunological safety evaluation of human pharmaceuticals by setting up, promoting and coordinating a COllaborative Network For Immunological safety Research in Minipigs (hence the acronym CONFIRM). 

The CONFIRM Initiative is intended to: 

  • serve as a trigger for immunological safety research in Göttingen Minipigs
  • assist and synergize fundamental, translational and regulatory investigative efforts relevant to immunological safety evaluation in Göttingen Minipigs
  • spread current knowledge and new findings to the scientific and regulatory toxicology community.
