Abstract

Discrepancies in the literature are found in regard to whether some macromolecules act as promoters or inhibitors of calcium-oxalate (CaOx) crystallization (1), The purpose of the present study was to study and compare the inhibitory effects of several molecules containing sulphate groups, especially glycosaminoglycans, under different experimental conditions.
