BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to measure urinary excretion of Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP), an important inhibitor of crystallization, and to identify possible determinants of urinary THP excretion in non-selected kidney stone formers (SF) and healthy subjects (C). METHODS By means of a commercially available ELISA (Pharmacia and Upjohn/Elias, Germany), we measured THP in 24-h urines of 104 SF (74 males/30 females, age 16-74 years) who had formed 8.7+/-2.4 stones (range 1-240), and of 71… CONTINUE READING
