Such tolerance may be induced by exposing an animal to the antigen at a very early stage of life, prior to maturation of the immune system, or, in adults, by exposing the animal to repeated low doses of a weak protein antigen (low-zone tolerance), or to a large amount of an antigen (high-zone tolerance).

The maximum amount of pesticide or drug residue allowed by law to remain in or on a harvested crop or food animal product. EPA sets tolerances for pesticides and FDA sets tolerances for drugs so that treated crops or animals consumed do not pose an unreasonable risk to consumers (a reasonable certainty of no harm for pesticides). Tolerances are set for food-use crops on a per-crop basis. Tolerances are set for animal products on the basis of individual species and tissue (muscle, liver, etc.).
The failure to produce antibodies against antigens normally present in the body.
An attenuation of response to an agent or antigen.
Tolerance is the failure to respond to an antigen; when that antigen is borne by self-tissues, tolerance is called self-tolerance.
The capacity for or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or practices of others.
The belief that each person is the source of his own 'truth,' and that no one should be the source of someone else's 'truth.'

Because of the handmade production process, Venezia Fireplace Fascia pavers have a minimum tolerance of +/- 1/4" in all directions. For lengths/widths over 24", add 1/16" tolerance per additional 12". For quoins, corners and cut-away components, allow 1/4" tolerance +/- in all directions. The end user should be expecting a rustic finished appearance; grout joints will vary in thickness; and installed heights of individual pavers may vary slightly.

In Photoshop tolerance describes a certain distance between adjacent pixels. Tolerance is used with the Wand Tool for making selections and the Paint Bucket Tool for painting. The tolerance values can be adjusted for these tools. For example, when the Wand Tool is set to a tolerance of one, only a small selection will be created because the distance between the selected pixel value and adjacent pixels is only one.
