endpoint

A biological endpoint is a direct marker of disease progression - e.g. disease symptoms or death - used to describe a health effect (or a probability of that health effect) resulting from exposure to a chemical.
Exposure to a particular chemical may lead to a series of endpoints. The most sensitive endpoint (critical endpoint) is the one that occurs at the lowest exposure level.
