The current status for estimation of 'safe doses' in carcinogenic experiments is examined. After considering various definitions of safe doses, a method of standardizing safe doses based on some objective parameters is introduced; and a procedure of estimating standardized safe doses under competing risks is discussed. Examples are given to illustrate how raw data can be analyzed by using the proposed methods. (Copyright (c) 1994 Lewis Publishers.)
