Information on the biological activity of a substance is often obtained from experiments in which the treatments comprise a series of doses of the substance and a zero dose control. The aim of such experiments, particularly in toxicity studies, may be to determine the lowest dose, if any, at which there is activity. A new test procedure is proposed for this situation in the case where the activity of interest is a change in the mean of a single response variate. Tables are given whereby this procedure can be used when all treatments are equally replicated. The advantages of this test over other established tests are discussed.
