    dose-dependent

    Hi,

    I would like to know what does "dose-dependent" mean in this sentence. Does it mean that the increase in the number of surviving cells depends on the dose that's administered?

    Thank you.

    "We discovered that using this monoclonal antibody to inhibit blood vessel damage and dysfunction led to a dose-dependent increase in the number of surviving stem cells, which are highly active and responsible for repopulation of the damaged GI epithelium," said the study's corresponding author Richard N. Kolesnick, MD, a member of Memorial Sloan-Kettering's Molecular Pharmacology and Chemistry Program whose laboratory conducted the research experiments.

    It seems to me to be saying that the results depend on the size of the dose.

    Yes. When the dose was increased more cells survived.

    We should get paid more for sentences like that.
