Experimental results have shown that KLP taken orally helps promote the diuretic action of normal Wistar rats, decrease the urine volume of debilitated rats and increase the urine volume of BPH rats. It has also been shown that KLP(i.v.) can increase the urine volume of anesthetic rats and reduce the remnant urine. In addition, KLP can contract the smooth muscle of rats and rabbits.
