Comparison of urine and serum pH in treatment groups. A) Urine samples were collected from tumor bearing mice at eight different time points over a 3 week period from 3-10 mice in each treatment group. At time zero before starting treatment, urine pH in all groups averaged 5.59 ± 0.2 with no statistical difference between groups. The first collection time after starting treatment was at 24 hours. Urine pH measurements from all collection times were averaged. Asterisks (*) designate average urine pH values that were statistically significant from untreated mouse group by student's two-tailed t-test (p < 0.001). The cross (†) designates average urine pH values between the DCA and DB treated groups were statistically significant (p < 0.03). B) Serum pH was measured in euthanized mice. Differences in serum pH between groups were not statistically significant. Error bars are expressed as SEM.
