dose-response relationship

dose-·re·sponse re·la·tion·ship

relationship in which a change in the amount, intensity, or duration of exposure is associated with a change in risk of a specified outcome.

dose-response relationship

a mathematic relationship between the dose of a drug or radiation and the body's reaction to it. In a linear dose-response relationship, the response is proportional to the dose. Thus, if the dose is doubled, the response is also doubled. In a linear nonthreshold relationship, any dose, regardless of size, can theoretically cause a response.
