  • The rate of response of a tissue to the action of a drug can be studied in two way: (1) Measurement of some graded action. The following are simple examples of this type of response: the contracture of plain or of skeletal muscle; the inhibition of the mechanical response of cardiac muscle; the relaxation of plain muscle. (2) Measurement of the rate of incidence of some all-or-none effect. The following are important measurements of this type: death of micro-organisms… CONTINUE READING
