Biochemical investigations into pancreas disease of salmon: role of nutrition (COMPLETED 6/92) - FC0408

Summary Objective:- Conduct research into Pancreatic Disease in Salmon and investigate ways of altering the effects of the disease through dietary control and the application of mammalian pancreatic treatments. Establish rapid diagnostic tests for the onset of PD. Key Customer purpose:- Enable a rational policy for dealing with PD to be developed based on a better understanding of the disease, its detection and treatment.
To develop more rapid in vitro as well as in vivo diagnostic tests for pancreas disease and thereby investigate the biochemical events associated with the disease with a view to developing nutritional means of ameliorating its effects.
