We have studied how complex formation between calcium and ethylenediaminetetraacetate or citrate ions influences the surface texture and the size of passed oxalate-phosphate renal stones. The four hour concrement treatment by sodium citrate or ethylenediaminetetraacetate aqueous solutions strongly affects the stone texture and provides a mass loss of 6-15%.(More)
The flow cell modeling clinical conditions have been used to study the interaction between dilute chemolytic solutions and large calcium oxalate renal stones. The stone treatment with 5% disodium ethylenediaminetetraacetate aqueous solutions or citrate buffer are found not to provide notable disruption of the samples studied. The significant improvement is(More)
We have studied the temperature and length scale dependence of the energetics of the pair interaction of well-established hydrophobic solutes tetraalkylammonium bromides with hydrophilic formamide (FA) and hydrophobic hexamethylphosphoric triamide (HMPT). Our results do indicate the anomalous length scale dependence of the tetraalkylammonium cation-amide(More)
We have studied the thermodynamics of the pair interaction between aromatic amino acid-l-histidine and nonelectrolyte denaturing globular proteins-hydrophilic urea (U) and presumably hydrophobic dimethylformamide (DMF) in the temperature range of 288-328 K. Our study does indicate for the first time the anomalous temperature dependence of the enthalpies and(More)
AIM To identify the most likely metabolic disturbances and risk factors for stone formation in a group of patients with calcium oxalate urolithiasis, and to establish the relationship between the mineralogical composition of calculi and impaired excretion of inhibitors and promoters of stone formation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty patients with calcium(More)
This paper focuses on the temperature and length scale dependence of solvation of familiar hydrophobic solutes: tetraalkylammonium ions in highly associated solvents with H-bond networks. Standard enthalpies and heat capacities of solution of symmetrical tetraalkylammonium bromides in formamide (FA) and ethylene glycol (C(2)H(4)(OH)(2)) have been computed(More)
This paper focuses on developing and implementing a method of quantitative mineralogical analysis of urinary stones based on powder diffraction data analysis using 4 Topas (Bruker) software. Mineralogical composition of 100 urinary stones from urolithiasis patients living in Ivanovo region was examined. More than 70% of stones consisted of calcium oxalate(More)
We have studied thermodynamics of interaction between the aromatic amino acid L-histidine and glycerol, which is one of the most important stabilizing agents for proteins in water. The pair and triplet interaction parameters have been extracted from enthalpy and solubility data using standard thermodynamic manipulations in a wide temperature range. Our(More)
It has been observed that quasi-periodic oscillations in the solar wind and interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) can result in the generation of auroral electrojet bursts and gravity waves with a similar period. In this paper, we present radar and magnetometer observations of quasi-periodic ionospheric disturbances during stable, northward IMF. Magnetic(More)
The paper presents the results of the 1-year screening of biochemical parameters of urine in female patient with recurrent calcium urate urolithiasis. Based on the data of quantitative X-ray phase analysis of the composition of stone and a complex of clinical and laboratory examination, reasons for recurrent stone formation were determined. The main reasons(More)
