|Question... Follow Up||Answer||Follow-up Answer|
|Intervention/Exposure||sodium Saccharin, Sorbitol|
|LCS vs sugar/ or others||1|
|Outcomes||rankings: taste; texture; ease of swallowing; overall impression (note: each mixture contained charcoal)|
|Age (mean or range)||NR|
|Number analyzed (intervention)||NR|
|Number analyzed (control)||NR|
|Baseline health (coded)||Healthy|
|Duration (coded)||<1 day|
|Primary (Most important outcome)||taste|
|Hypotheses/Aim(s) of Study||Since sorbitol, saccharin, and sucrose seem to be the only flavoring agents that have been shown to retain their flavors when mixed in with reasonable proportions with charcoal and to not interfere with the efficacy of the charcoal for adsorbing drugs, and since they have never been compared directly to one another, it seemed clear that a direct comparison of formulations containing these substances was in order.|
