Korean to English translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical (general)
Korean term or phrase: 야기
The term "야기" appears in a test report (skin reactivity) on a medical device, e.g., "유도일 및 야기일," "야기 투여후", "감작야기," etc. I can't get "cause" to work in any of those phrases and wonder what I'm missing.

I'm not certain what the best medical term is, but 야기 would refer to the exhibiting of symptoms (in this case, a skin reaction). So, 야기일 would be something like "outbreak date" or "reaction date". 야기 투여후 sounds like a reference to a certain point in time after administering the agent for the purpose of inducing a reaction. 감작야기 would be a reduced reaction, and 유도일 would be the date on which a reaction was induced. I guess the actual reaction though could come a certain number of days later (which would then be the 야기일).

this word generally means 'cause' so 'onset' is appropriate in the given contest.
