Bacterial Dose and Developmental Course of Shigella Keratoconjunctivitis Because this model has been most successfully employed for the study of Shigella invasion of mucosal tissues, the following section specifically summarizes our understanding of Shigella-induced, experimental keratoconjunctivitis. Application of this technique to other enteropathogens will be briefly reviewed in a subsequent section.

Ther. 96, 99 (1949). [")l DETERMINATION OF LDsoAND IDs0 31 Probit Method Probit analysis is probably the most precise statistical approach for determining 50% end points, for data which fulfill its requirements. 2 The probit method depends on the assumption that the observed responses are sampled from a population where the responses are normally distributed. As a rule of thumb, probit analysis requires that at least 3 partial responses (>0%, < 100%) are obtained, and at least 6 animals per group and 5-6 dosage levels used.

Totals (column 8) are obtained by adding the values in columns 6 and 7 at each dose. c Accumulated percent dead are calculated by dividing the accumulated total dead (column 6) by the total (column 8) and multiplying times 100.
