What is dose response?

In the QMRA framework, the dose response assessment phase is an essential quantitative element of the risk estimate. It estimates the risk of a response (for example, infection, illness or death) given a known dose of a pathogen. Dose response models are mathematical functions that describe the dose response relationship for specific pathogens, transmission routes, and hosts.
