What is the dose effect?


The "dose effect" refers to the relationship between the amount of a stimulus or drug and its effect on an organism or system. According to , the dose effect is especially significant and can be seen in various studies. The division of data into quartiles, rather than a simple binary categorization, allows a clearer illustration of how different doses influence outcomes, showing a consistent increase or decrease in effects in relation to the dose. This detailed separation into quartiles provides a more nuanced understanding of how incremental changes in the dose can impact the results 1.
