In a recent Perspective article (Toxicologic Pathology 31: 260-262, 2003) Waddell asserts that he has developed a log linear extrapolation model that can demonstrate a threshold and resolve for once and for all the uncertainies associated with low dose cancer risk extrapolation. However, his method essentially forces, rather than demonstrates, a threshold, and has many serious flaws that result in significant under-estimation of low dose risk. It would be a serious mistake for the scientific community to adopt Waddell's log linear extrapolation model for chemical carcinogenesis risk assessment...

After a brief discussion of the potential errors and uncertainies of statistics about etiology and epidemiology of drug eruptions the 144 cases, seen from 1968 to 1974 in our dermatological clinic, are analysed and compared with the data from the years 1957 to 1965 respectively the quantities of special drugs, consumed during one year in Dresden city. The results are: significant increase of drugs eruptions (from 0,9% in 1957 to 1965 to 1,9% in 1968 to 1974) among the hospitalised patients; absolute and relative increase of penicillin- (36,7%) and chloramphenicolreactions (21,6%) combined with a decreasing importance of sulfonamides and barbiturates among the causes of drug rashes; increase of urticarial - and decrease of fixed exanthemas: a yearly frequency of 3 to 4 clinically treated ore diagnosticated drug eruptions/100 000 inhabitants respectively 1 to 2 chloramphenicol and 1--5 penicillin-rashes/10 000 treatments...
