Hormesis is a frequently observed phenomenon that has been rigorously reported with precise doseresponse curves the therapeutic method based on the principle of 'like cures like' should not testing the hormetic nature of homeopathic interventions through stress response pathways.
Since hormesis is widely hypothesized to be an overcompensation response to a stressor agent, a logical starting place to assess the hormetic response in this system is to determine if the target of imazapyr is being upregulated when hormesis is present.
