Conference paper


There is a discrepancy between the plasma oxalate concentrations measured by in vitro chemical/enzymatic techniques1,2(∼10 μmol/1) and in vivo isotopic dilution methods (∼1 μmol/1) 3,4However, recent chemical/enzymatic estimates of plasma oxalate concentration range between 2 and 4 pmol/15–7.
