Statistical studies of animal response data from USF toxicity screening test method
Author and Affiliation:

Machado, A. M.(San Francisco, University, San Francisco, Calif., United States)
Abstract: Statistical examination of animal response data obtained using Procedure B of the USF toxicity screening test method indicates that the data deviate only slightly from a normal or Gaussian distribution. This slight departure from normality is not expected to invalidate conclusions based on theoretical statistics. Comparison of times to staggering, convulsions, collapse, and death as endpoints shows that time to death appears to be the most reliable endpoint because it offers the lowest probability of missed observations and premature judgements.
