Acute toxicity, an important part of drug safety evaluation, describes the adverse effects of a pharmaceutical when it is administered in one or more doses during a short period time (less than 24 hours). To be described as acute toxicity, the adverse effects should occur within 14 days of the administration of the substance. Acute toxicity tests in animals are usually necessary for any pharmaceutical intended for human use. They provide information about possible dose levels for first applications to humans and indications as to the possible effects with over-dosing (accidental or intentional). The information obtained from these studies are crucial for choosing doses for repeat-dose studies, the evaluation of toxicological mechanism, the selection of starting doses for Phase 1 human studies, as well as providing information relevant to acute overdosing in humans.
