Urinary Macromolecular-Inhibitory-Substances of Calcium-Oxalate-Monohydrate Crystal Growth
It is well known that urinary glycosaminoglycans (GAG) exert inhibitory activity on crystal growth and aggregation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the inhibitory activity of GAG in a natural form, namely as proteoglycan or glycoprotein.
