Transport of Oxalate in Intact Red-Blood Cells can Identify Potential Stone Formers
Some changes occurring in red blood cells may act as a reflective index for certain metabolic disorders occurring elsewhere in the body, for example, the effect of hypertension on cation transport. Such changes in the transport process of red blood cells may become an indispensible tool for diagnosing certain metabolic disturbances in the body.
