L doses

L doses

a group of terms that indicate the relative activity or potency of diphtheria toxin; the l doses are distinctly different from the minimal lethal dose and minimal reacting dose, inasmuch as the latter two represent the direct effects of toxin, whereas the l doses pertain to the combining power of toxin with specific antitoxin.

Origin: L for limes
