The multi-stage model supposes that various stages have to be completed, either in series or in parallel before a response is obtained. For a comprehensive review, see Kalbfleisch et al. (1983). 17) the probability of response is given by: and we can see therefore that this model is equivalent to a threshold model with a gamma-distributed tolerance distribution. This is in fact a limiting case of an extended threshold model presented by Prentice (1976b), based on the log F distribution, with cumulative distribution function, F(z) = f z - oo ewml(1 + ew)-(m!
