Title Quantitative interpretation of experimental toxicological data: utilisation of control substances
Original title Kvantitativní interpretace experimentálních toxikologických dat: použití referenčních látek [in Czech]
Bibliographic information Jan. 1974, Vol.26, No.1, p.2-8. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract In experimental toxicology, functional tests can be used to determine risk criteria only if the critical threshold of effect of the new substance is determined in given conditions. The authors propose a method whereby this effect is expressed by the ratio between the concentrations (or doses) of the substance concerned and a control substance producing identical effects. This method is particularly appropriate for comparing the results of tests performed in different laboratories.
