One should not lose sight of the fact that toxicokinetics - - in any f o r m - - i s essentially based on pharmacokinetic principles that apply to any xenobiotic, be it a drug used for therapeutical purposes or a toxicant.

Other relevant practical methods are nonparametric and sequential approaches for the estimation of approximate toxicity limits that reduce the number of experimental animals needed. Introduction The objective of a repeated toxicity study is to estimate the toxicity and side effects of a new substance after repeated administration of increasing doses.

1 dimensional trend tests, each at level c~ (if the null hypothesis in the jth dimension can be rejected, the (j - 1) dimensional trend test can be tested; otherwise, the procedure stops and the minim u m effective dose is j). In the example for the four-dimensional trend test (global test) the null hypothesis can be rejected. 6449. 65, the minimum effective dose is 50 m g / k g . 9 Assuming the repeated measures are multivariate vectors and using multiple endpoint test in its stabilized version.
