Given the estimated MED for narrowband UVB exposure, the threshold dose should be in the range of >1730 to 3375 mJ/[cm.sup.2].
It is commonly thought that asbestosis is a disease that occurs in individuals who have worked directly with asbestos for several decades, that a threshold dose sufficient to cause the disease is required and thereafter its severity follows a dose-response relationship.
The good coincidence between the hydrophobizing of the exposed resist by surfactant adsorption and the pattern collapse reduction demonstrates that: (i) the hydrophobizing of the resist causes a decrease of the capillary force and thus a pattern collapse reduction; and (ii) the .at photoresist layer processed with the threshold dose is a model surface that represents well the surface properties of the sidewalls of real photoresist structures where the capillary forces act.
It should also help to define the L-DOPA threshold dose in individual patients.
High radiation dose to the fetus during the major organogenesis period is more likely to result in congenital malformations than in lethality.9 The developing brain is most sensitive in weeks 8 to 15 postconception; data from atomic bomb survivors reveals a threshold dose for mental retardation of approximately 0.3 Gy.
These findings suggested that the suprathreshold dose is better than the threshold dose on the precision of experiment.
For doses below the threshold dose, the risk of an effect occurring then becomes zero.
The idea that there is no threshold dose for toxic effects, and any dose above zero is harmful (and exactly proportional to the dose) is called the linear-no-threshold assumption.
Previous research demonstrated that a mixture of 11 pyrethroids had a dose-additive effect on the rat nervous system, decreasing the animals' motor activity at doses below the threshold dose of each constituent compound.
In comparison with stochastic effects, deterministic effects are a greater cause of concern in diagnostic radiology as they occur above a certain threshold dose.
* Stochastic refers to effects whose probability increases with increasing dose and for which there is no threshold dose (DT).
Patients with a history of severe allergic reactions to peanuts had a lower threshold dose in the food challenge study than those with a history of mild symptoms.
