Background: This study describes a combination of between- and within patient in a two dimensional Response Surface Pathway (RSP) design and introduce a randomization procedure in the clinical trial. This development is exemplified by a dose-response study of Qlice in treatment of Atlantic salmon against sea lice (salmon louse). Methods: The study was performed as a ?between-patient? three level RSP trial in single dose finding and ?within-patient? RSP in duration of the dose. Reduction in lice was the outcome variable. The study consisted of 15 net pens (3.6 mill. salmon incl. control) with minimum 4 lice/fish. The study was conducted to determine the minimum efficient dose (MED) of a new treatment procedure. Adjustment of the dose from one design level to the next and duration between treatments within net pens was based on k-adjustment factors estimated to ensure coverage of the entire two predefined windows. Three net pens were included on the first dose/design level, five on the second and seven on the third. In order to obtain the ?between patient? RSP in the dose arm, a randomization procedure was introduced. Results: The optimal dose procedure of Qlice was estimated to 8.0 mg/kg biomass distributed during a period of 2 hours and 10 minutes. This dose procedure reduced the percent lice with 83.6%. No obvious interaction between dose and duration of dosage was detected. No adverse events were recorded. Conclusion: Both the two dimensional RSP design and the randomization procedure used in the dose-arm worked satisfactorily in the field.
