OBJECTIVES The sensitivity of one plasma and two urinary methods to assess zinc absorption after oral dosing were compared over the dose range of 10 to 100 mg. METHODS Eleven healthy subjects participated in this four-way crossover design study. After an overnight fast, the subjects received a single oral dose of zinc acetate corresponding to 10, 25, 50, or 100 mg of elemental zinc. Plasma zinc concentrations were measured at baseline (pre-zinc administration) and hourly intervals post-zinc… CONTINUE READING
