Histopathological Changes in the Kidney of the Rat on an Atherogenic Diet
We have set up a rat model to study the dependence of nephrocalcinosis on various factors involved in stone-formation. To induce nephrocalcinosis we fed an atherogenic diet, high in cholesterol1. The position of the resulting calcification and concrements in the different regions of the nephron was noted and their morphology and composition determined.
