Limitations and Caveats
Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Our study methodology could have been improved with a series of timed urine collections such as collections at pre-treatment, 2, 4 and 6 hours after ingestion of the cranberry juice cocktail and placebo to determine time of maximal effect.
