Characterization of the Calcium Oxalate Crystal Growth Inhibitors in Human Urine
Although the concentration of inhibitors of calcium oxalate crystal growth in stone former’s urine does not appear to differ from that in normal urine1 the inhibitors must be characterized in order to better assess their role in stone disease. We have focused on the development of new methods for their separation and purification, concentrating our efforts on the high molecular weight inhibitors.
