There is an enoumous literature base on the application of dose-response
data to the understanding of toxicologic mechanism, the extrapolation of
toxicologic risk across exposure paradigms and species, and the
management
of sources of toxicologic risk. Good references include:

Jarabek, A.M. (1995). "The application of dosimetry models to identify
key
processes and parameters for default dose-response assessment
approaches."
Toxicol. Lett. 79:171-184. 

"Science and Judgement in Risk Assessment" by the Committee on Risk
Assessment of Hazardous Air Pollutants of the US National Research
Council
[ISBN 0-309-04894-X].

There are many, many more...
