A survival-adjusted quantal-response test for analysis of tumor incidence rates in animal carcinogenicity studies


, : A survival-adjusted quantal-response test for analysis of tumor incidence rates in animal carcinogenicity studies. Environmental Health Perspectives 114(4): 537-541

In rodent cancer bioassays, groups of animals are exposed to different doses of a chemical of interest and followed for tumour occurrence. The resulting tumor rates are commonly analysed using a survival-adjusted Cochran-Armitage (CA) trend test. The CA trend test has reasonable power when the tumour-response curve is linear in dose, but it may be underpowered for a nonlinear response.

Previous work has shown that, when asked to explain a concept they are acquiring, children often convey one procedure in speech and a different procedure in gesture. Such children, whom we label "discordant," have been shown to be in a t...

Background: Resistance to beta-lactams in Haemophilus influenzae is mostly due to the presence of TEM beta-lactamases. beta-Lactamase-negative ampicillin resistance (BLNAR) also occurs as a result of PBP3 modifications. BLNAR strains are particula...
