Abstract

The effects of several chemical solutions have been studied on the induction period of calcium oxalate crystallization, the in vitro rate of dissolution of calcium oxalate pellets, and calcium stone-formation in rats. These studies form a simple and reliable approach to investigations into the mechanisms of calcium urolithiasis. There is a correlation between the induction period before crystallization and the dissolution rate produced by various chemical such as α-ketoglutaric acid. In this paper we report on in vitro studies on calcium oxalate crystallization and dissolution and a new rat model for determining the relative ability of solvents to dissolve calcium oxalate stones in vivo.
