Diffusion is also accelerated when the skin has been pretreated with organic solvents, such as chloroform (CHCl 3), methanol (CH 3 OH), or dimethyl sulfoxide ([CH3]2SO). Enhanced epidermal permeability is thought to result from the removal of extracellular lipids by these solvents. Finally, when toxicants become localized in the epidermis, local toxicity, rather than systemic toxicity, is the likely result. This is because the epidermis is avascular (having no blood vessels). Without a transport mechanism, toxicants cannot be distributed to other areas of the body where systemic toxicity may result.

1 mg/kg). The “response” axis in a dose-response graph may be presented as a frequencyresponse or a cumulative-response. A frequency dose-response graph plots the percentage of organisms responding to a given dose (Figure 3–2A). These graphs can usually be recognized by their “bellshaped” appearance. The cumulative dose-response graph represents the cumulative sum of responses from lower to higher doses (Figure 3–2B). The frequency or percentage of organisms responding to the lowest dose is added to the percentage responding to the next dose, which is then added to the third dose, and so on.
