  • How do I convert mg/ml to mg/kg?

    A recent study on a nutritional supplement indicated that high dosages of 10 mg/ml administered chronically to mice, caused health problems.

    I am attempting to figure out what a 10 mg/ml dose converts to in mg/kg?

        Sorry about that. The problem is there is no "answer" as such. The differences in different species means you can't just do a mathematical conversion, and draw any conclusions from it. If you are a student, I would suggest you do a literature review through the medical journals, examining these types of suppliments on humans.

          Thank you for your time however, I respectfully disagree.

          It appears as though the individuals who conducted the study, did in fact have a mathematical estimate (e.g. 40-fold higher). Here's more....

          "The plasma NAC level at this dose was similar to the target peak level in the human study of the hypoxia-mimetic effects of NAC, though the dose per weight was approximately 40-fold higher and the exposure continuous."

            I think you need a dose volume. This is what worked from me. I had two concentrations
            300 mg/ml and 1000 mg/kg. I wanted to see if they were the similar. I also know that the study is using mice where there is a dose volume of 10 ml/kg.

            so, 300 mg/ml * 10 ml/kg=3000 mg/kg.
            I hope this helps.
