Calcium Transport by Red Cells from Hypercalciuric Stone Formers

It is commonly recognized that hypercalciuria is a risk factor for stone formation (1). Hyperabsorption of intestinal calcium (2), a renal leak of calcium, and/or increased bone resorption (3, 4) have been implicated as mechanisms of hypercalciuria.
