Only occasional studies have evaluated PAC among the caregivers of patients with BPAD. A study from our centre evaluated PAC using the Experience of Caregiving Inventory (ECI), (23) which assesses caregiving appraisal using the framework of stress-appraisal coping.
In the family setup, BPAD affected 53 patients, followed by schizophrenia (17 patients) and substance abuse (16 patients).
(2011) introduced the concept of biological pathway activating dose (BPAD) and, as a starting point for the establishment of the BPAD, used the [ToxCast.sup.TM] [AC.sub.50] values (the concentration at 50% of maximum activity) as PODs in their illustration of the BPAD concept.
