The response may be effective dose or morality. 5 Quantal doseÀresponse relationship showing linear transformation of doseÀresponse data by log-probit plot. Percentage response may be effective dose or morality. LD50: Also called median lethal dose (MLD), is the dose that is lethal to 50% of animals exposed to a given toxicant under defined conditions. The LD50 value is a common way of expressing acute toxicity and may not pertain to the severity of clinical signs observed in the characteristic changes caused by the toxicant but depend only on the lethality produced by the toxicant.

For instance, drugs that have neuromuscular blocking properties that are elicited through their action on nicotinic receptors (eg, d-tubocurarine or succinylcholine) may enhance the toxicity of organophosphates or carbamates, whereas the reverse holds true in the case of exposure to parasympatholytic agents like atropine, which is widely used as an antagonist in clinical practice. Tolerance It is well known that the toxic reaction of an animal to a given dose of a drug may decrease, remain unchanged, or increase on subsequent administration of that dose.

One such scheme utilizes ranges of doses with descriptive terms for toxicity. LD50 values are also useful for making an objective comparison of inherent toxicity of different compounds. Some compounds are so toxic that exposure to a few drops will result in toxicity. On the contrary, other compounds are relatively harmless and may be ingested without any harm. 5). 7 VARIABLES OF DOSEÀRESPONSE CURVE Irrespective of the shape (linear, sigmoid, hyperbolic), the doseÀresponse curve has four characteristic variables: efficacy, potency, slope, and biological variations.
