The Uricosuric Action of Protein in Man
- 65 Downloads
The influence of dietetic measures on uric acid metabolism was repeatedly investigated (1,2,3,6). In our studies we were able to show that intravenously administered amino acids display a definite uricosuric effect (5). Our aim was then to investigate whether the uric acid metabolism can also be affected under oral application of purine free protein by modifying the dietary protein portion.
