Various modifiers of the rate of crystallization of calcium oxalate (CaOx) known to be present in urine were studied in a continuous crystallizer system under conditions approximating those in whole urine. Of the small ions examined, magnesium and citrate were only weak inhibitors of the crystal growth rate and degree of agglomeration of CaOx within the urinary range of concentration of these ions. At and beyond the upper limit of the normal, however, both ions became much more active mainly… CONTINUE READING
