Fixed Dose Procedure
FDP uses 10-20 animals to find the dose producing toxicity signs but not death, and from there predicts the lethal dose. LD50 ("lethal dose 50%") uses 60-80 animals to find a dose killing 50% of animals within a given time. FDP sometimes requires retesting using slightly higher or lower doses.
