DETERMINATION OF ED50 AND LD50 PDF

The LD 50 is one way to measure the short-term poisoning acute toxicity of a material. The lower the LD 50 dose, the more toxic the pesticide. It is usually expressed as the amount of chemical administered e. To compare the toxic potency or intensity of different chemicals. One way is to carry out lethality testing by measuring how much of a chemical is required to cause death.

The concentration of the toxicant in the three beakers should be in a gradually increasing order from a lower to higher level.

The fourth beaker containing only water is used as a control. Properly label the beakers with necessary information. A batch of 10 mosquito larvae of same age and size are released in each beaker. Observe the behaviour—movement, irritability, etc.

A dose-response curve for each dose may be prepared by plotting the period of exposure on x-axis abscissa and the number of dead larvae on the y-axis ordinate. Major Carp Fingerlings Test Animal : Four aquaria measuring 75 x 30 x 50 cm each are filled with tank water, preferably from a fish fingerling culture pond up to a height of 45 cm.

The concentration of the toxicant in the aquaria should be in a gradually increasing order from a lower to higher level. The fourth aquarium containing only water is used as a control. Properly label the aquaria with necessary information. All the aquaria are covered with mosquito net to prevent jumping out of fingerlings.

A batch of 10 healthy fingerlings — size 75 mm — are released in each aquarium. Regular food supply and aeration of aquarium water is maintained. A dose-response curve for each dose may be prepared by plotting the period of exposure on x-axis and number of dead fingerlings on y-axis. The total amount of food for each concentration of toxicant should be such that it can be consumed by 6 mice of a batch in one meal.

Six baits are prepared for each concentration. Six baits are prepared without toxicant for the control batch. The control group is treated in the same way. The fasting animals are given the bait—one for each mice and water. The control batch is given bait without toxicant and water. A dose-response curve for each dose may be prepared by plotting the period of exposure on x-axis and the number of dead mices in y-axis.

Determination of LC50 and LD50 of Toxicant

The results of oral toxicity study was observed in mice at the doses of , , , 50, 25, 10, 1, 0. The toxic sign and symptoms after oral dose introduction in mice were convulsion and tremor. Dose dependent toxic effect in behaviour of mice included convulsion, tremor, unsteady gait, and respiratory distress to death. It was also observed that at the dose of 1, 0. In analgesic activity test at low dose 1, 0. Hot plate analgesic activity was also exhibited some analgesic potential.

Mitilar Divide the number people who experienced therapeutic effects from the treatment by the number of total patients who underwent the treatment. It is usually expressed as the amount of chemical administered e. The LD50 is calculated using the maximum likelihood method. The LD50 value and its standard error were determined from the graph, if the line was straight enough.
