Comments on statistical methods for safety assessment published

March 6, 2018


In safety assessments a large number of non-target effects  has to be analysed statistically. A recent paper published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry advocates an approach which leads to over-optimistic conclusions. In a recent Correspondence to this journal the concerns about the misapplication of methodology are explained. See: Safety Assessments and Multiplicity Adjustment: Comments on a Recent Paper, available on the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry website at http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.jafc.7b03686.
