Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9922237A1] The present invention relates to a method for evaluating an effect characteristic of a biochemically active stimulation means, wherein a set of measurement pairs are provided, each consisting of a value related to the amount of a biochemically active stimulation means applied to a biological material and a value related to a biochemically mediated effect associated therewith, said set of measurement pairs together indicating a functional relationship between said amount of biochemically active stimulation means applied to said biological material and said biochemically mediated effect. According to the invention, said set of measurement pairs, indicating said functional relationship, is extrapolated for deriving a negative, non-zero value of said amount of applied biochemically active stimulation means at which said value of biochemically mediated effect becomes essentially zero, said negative, non-zero value representing an intrinsic amount of biochemically active stimulation means in said biological material, thereby explaining the existence of a non-zero biochemically mediated effect at a zero amount of applied biologically active stimulation means.
