We developed a database compiling in vivo doses of compounds for various activities in certain animal species. The related database covers almost 100 years of experiments. The conceptual scheme of the database was created using concepts of the entity-relationship modeling principles. Using published references, dosages and their effects on laboratory animals were entered as data. As the next stage of our work, we have started to examine the available literature to information about the experimental dosages of various drugs used in other studies.
