The toxic component is tremetol, and the toxic dose of the green plant is approximately 1% to 10% of the body weight of the animal at one time or over several doses. The toxin is cumulative, so one large dose or multiple smaller doses over time can kill. The toxin is excreted in the milk, so lactating animals are slower to show signs of

The median lethal dose and its estimationSpringerLink

An important paper by Zbinden and Fluri-Roversi (1981) has shown the many weaknesses in any policy or regulatory system that regards an estimated LD50 in an animal species as an adequate guide to toxicity in man. The present paper draws attention to some statistical aspects of LD50 estimation that are too often neglected or misunderstood when this quantity is wanted.

LD stands for "Lethal Dose". LD 50 is the amount of a material, given all at once, which causes the death of 50% (one half) of a group of test animals. The LD 50 is one way to measure the short-term poisoning potential (acute toxicity) of a material.. Toxicologists can use many kinds of animals but most often testing is done with rats and mice.
