Effect of Ribomononucleotides Given Orally on Uric Acid Production in Man

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Purine Metabolism in Man

Part of the book series: Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology ((AEMB,volume 41))


During recent years WASLIEN et al. as well as our group have studied the influence of dietary purines on plasma levels and urinary excretion of uric acid in man, using modern feeding techniques. In these experiments defined quantities of RNA and DNA were added to an isocaloric, purine free formula diet. [For a review see ZÖLLNER et al., 1972].
