Study of inhibitor and nucleator activities in calcium stone formers.Proc Eur Dial Transplant Assoc. 1983; 20:445-9.PE
In 30 calcium stone formers urinary citrate, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, uric acid and oxalate excretion were compared with the activity product ratios and formation product ratios of oxalate, brushite and monosodium urate. A positive correlation was found between calcium and phosphorus excretions and APRox and APRbr; no correlation was found between oxalate, uric acid, citrate and magnesium excretion and APR or FPR. Thus calcium and phosphorus contribute significantly to the increments of urine saturation; citrate and magnesium do not modify the inhibitor urinary activity, and oxalate and uric acid do not influence inhibition and saturation activities of urine.
