Abstract

It has become evident that crystal growth and aggregation is an important process in calcium stone formation, and it has been widely accepted that inhibitors present in healthy urine play an important role in preventing these processes. On the other hand, there has been little support for the concept that some, as yet unknown, substance(s) in the urine of stone formers actually promotes calcium oxalate crystallization (1–6).
