Inhibition of Calcium Oxalate Crystal Growth in Patients with Urolithiasis

  • Hans-Göran Tiselius
  • Lasse Larsson


It is now generally accepted that the formation of calcium oxalate stones occurs in urine which is supersaturated with respect to calcium oxalate1. Formation, growth and aggregation of calcium oxalate crystals are modified by urinary inhibitors. Information on the activity of these inhibitors are of importance when estimating the risk of renal stone formation2.
