The injurious effect of hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) on renal epithelial cells of the African green monkey (Vero cells) and the difference in the modulation of Vero cells on crystal growth of calcium oxalate (CaOxa) before and after injury were investigated. The degree of injury of Vero cells was proportional to the concentration and action time of(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the adhesion characteristics between submicron calcium oxalate dihydrate (COD) with a size of 150 ± 50 nm and African green monkey kidney epithelial cells (Vero cells) before and after damage, and to discuss the mechanism of kidney stone formation. METHODS Vero cells were oxidatively injured by hydrogen peroxide(More)
This paper investigated the inhibitory effect of degraded soybean polysaccharide (DPS) on the growth of calcium oxalate (CaOxa) crystals. The results were compared with that of soybean polysaccharide without degradation (SPS). The data showed that DPS exhibited a much higher efficiency to inhibit CaOxa growth and stabilize calcium oxalate dihydrate (COD)(More)
AIMS To improve the side effects caused by sodium citrate (Na(3)Cit), the anticoagulant effects of diethyl citrate (Et(2)Cit) were investigated. METHODS The in vitro anticoagulant effects and dissociation capacity of the chelate of Et(2)Cit with calcium ions were compared with those of Na(3)Cit in rabbits. RESULTS The activated coagulation time test(More)
The composition and morphology of nanocrystals in urines of healthy persons and lithogenic patients were comparatively investigated by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). It was shown that the main composition of urinary nanocrystals in healthy persons were calcium oxalate dihydrate (COD), uric acid, and ammonium(More)
BACKGROUND Renal epithelial cell injury facilitates crystal adhesion to cell surface and serves as a key step in renal stone formation. However, the effects of cell injury on the adhesion of nano-calcium oxalate crystals and the nano-crystal-induced reinjury risk of injured cells remain unclear. METHODS African green monkey renal epithelial (Vero) cells(More)
