Potassium chloride and Fracture delayed union - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data


Fracture delayed union is reported only by a few people who take Potassium Chloride.

The phase IV clinical study analyzes which people take Potassium chloride and have Fracture delayed union. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 11,472 people who have side effects while taking Potassium chloride from the FDA, and is updated regularly.

Phase IV trials are used to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor drug effectiveness in the real world. With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe is running millions of phase IV trials and makes the results available to the public. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature.
