BACKGROUND An anomalous plasma phospholipid polyunsaturated fatty acid composition has been reported in calcium nephrolithiasis, and was proposed to play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of hypercalciuria and hyperoxaluria, well-known risk factors for lithogenesis. METHODS To confirm this hypothesis, we administered rats three different diets rich in… CONTINUE READING
