Purpose:

To evaluate how the drug dextran sulfate (DS) is absorbed by the stomach and intestines when taken by mouth. To evaluate its effect on blood coagulation. DS has been reported to have anti-HIV activity. However, it is not known how much of the drug is absorbed into the bloodstream and can be used by the body when DS is taken by mouth.
