Author information

FU Berlin, Tierklinik für Fortpflanzung.


The characteristics and advantages of evidence based (human-) medicine (EBM) are introduced. By summarising information and analysing the results of different clinical trials relating to a specific topic by expert commissions concise and advanced conclusions can be formulated. That kind of evidence (certainty that results are true) increases the explanatory power of a single trial by far. Precondition for the development of an evidence based veterinary medicine (EBVM) is an improvement of the quality, design and implementation of clinical trials. Continuous publication of these conclusions (EBVM) can support the practitioner or clinician in the decision making process for an optimal treatment. Furthermore the implementation of state of the art intervention strategy is assured.
