The Effect of Sodium Sulfopentosan on the Crystallization of Calcium Oxalate

Conference paper


Several authors have demonstrated a lower inhibition of calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystallization in the urine of patients with CaOx stone disease when compared with that of normal subjects1–6. Various substances have been ascribed inhibiting properties, e.g. citrate, pyrophosphate, and macromolecular polyanions7. In this respect glycosaminoglycans are of particular interest8,9 inasmuch as they apparently inhibit both crystal growth and aggregation. Thus heparin was shown to reduce considerably the rate of CaOx crystallization8.
