Comparison of ED95 values may be made in terms of relaxant-equivalents, i.e., 1 relaxant-equivalent = .005 mg/kg of pancuronium = .02 mg/kg of metocurine = .03 mg/kg of dTc. Isobolograms constructed from this data indicate that pancuronium-metocurine and pancuronium-dTc both displayed greater than additive neuromuscular blocking potency. This marked potentiation was not seen with the metocurine-dTc combination.
