The same data from the sigmoid curve or a bell-shaped curve will form a straight line when transformed into probit units (Fig. 5). These values are 39 40 CHAPTER 5 Natural laws concerning toxicology statistically obtained and represent the best estimation of the dose required to kill 50% of the animals. The information with respect to the lethal dose for 95% or for 5% of the animals can also be derived by a similar procedure. The estimation is always accompanied by some error of the value, such as probability range of the value.

Biological similarities in values of the LD50 suggest that toxicity in humans will be similar to that found in animals. If the same LD50 is found in a wide variety of animal species, then the toxic reaction in humans is more likely to be similar to that in animals than if there is variation between biologically different species. Suppose that a compound is administered to a uniform population of biologic specimens. The typical line at LD50 is drawn to intersect the curve at 50 on the ordinate. The point of intersection on this line with the abscissa gives the dose that is lethal for 50% of the test animals.

3. LogÀdose plots usually provide a more linear representation of data. 2 QUANTAL OR ALL-OR-NONE DOSEÀRESPONSE RELATIONSHIP A quantal doseÀresponse relationship is one involving an all-or-none response; for example, on increasing the dose of a compound, the response is either produced or not produced. This relationship is seen with certain responses that follow the all-or-none phenomenon and cannot be graded (eg, death). In toxicology, the quantal doseÀresponse relationship is extensively used for the calculation of the lethal dose because in it we observe only mortality.
