Presents a study that investigated the efficacy of a diet containing a normal amount of calcium but reduced amount of animal protein and salt versus a traditional low-calcium diet in men with recurrent calcium oxalate stones and hypercalciuria.

    Idiopathic calcium nephrolithiasis and hypercalciuria are multifactorial disease conditions, the pathogenesis of which involves the interaction of environmental and individual factors. Data support a strong role of genes in the pathogenesis of these two conditions. Findings obtained in monogenic...

    Excessive animal protein consumption is associated with a greater risk of occurrence of renal calcium stone, presumably because of the attendant endogenous acid production. Indeed, chronic acid load enhances urinary calcium excretion possibly through an increased bone calcium release. Because...

    Introduction: To find out the association of VDR gene polymorphism with respect to Apa 1, in nephrolithiasis and the familial pattern of inheritance of nephrolithiasis. Methods: 130 patients with nephrolithiasis and 100 controls were studied. They were evaluated clinically and biochemically. The...

    Idiopathic hypercalciuria is a frequent cause of calcium (Ca) containing kidney stones. We have previously shown that there is increased intestinal Ca absorption in selectively inbred genetic hypercalciuric stone forming (GHS) rats; however, excess Ca excretion persists when the rats are fed a...

    An association between the R990G polymorphism of the CaSR gene, coding for calcium-sensing receptor, and primary hypercalciuria was found in kidney stone formers. To confirm this relationship, we investigated hypercalciuric women without stones and studied the effect of CaSR gene in human...
