Table 1 Mean serum ion concentrations during study days 5-9 by treatment group

From: A Phase 1 dose-ranging study examining the effects of a superabsorbent polymer (CLP) on fluid, sodium and potassium excretion in healthy subjects

  CLP Dose (g/day) Control (n = 5)
  7.5 (n = 5) 15.0 (Fed) (n = 4) 15.0 (Fasted) (n = 5) 25.0 (n = 5)  
Sodium (mmol/L) 141.1 (1.4) 138.5 (1.8) 141.0 (2.6) 137.4 (1.6) 139.4 (1.6)
Potassium (mmol/L) 4.6 (0.3) 4.3 (0.3) 4.3 (0.4) 3.7 (0.2) 4.8 (0.5)
Magnesium (mmoL/L) 0.8 (0.0) 0.8 (0.0) 0.8 (0.0) 0.7 (0.0) 0.9 (0.0)
Calcium (mmol/L) 2.4 (0.0) 2.3 (0.1) 2.4 (0.1) 2.3 (0.1) 2.4 (0.1)
Phosphorus (mmol/L) 1.5 (0.2) 1.4 (0.1) 1.3 (0.1) 1.2 (0.1) 1.6 (0.2)
  1. Values are the mean (standard deviation) of daily averages from Days 5-9.
