The aim of this project is to determine the optimal thiamine dose required for:

Two multi-dose trials will be conducted to determine the optimum dosing regimen for:

The objective of the project is to compare three different dosages of thiamine for each condition to determine the optimum thiamine dose.

The results of this study will contribute new knowledge to the scientific literature regarding the optimum dose for the treatment and prevention of WKS in an Indigenous health setting. This evidence, will inform the development of national best practice protocols for alcohol-related thiamine deficiency leading to improved treatment and clinical management for WKS patients.
