This study amied to investigate the effects of Orthosiphon grandiflorum on the renal tubular cell injury induced by oxalate and the inhibitory effects of O. grandiflorum on urinary deposit formation in an animal model and compared the results with those from a potassium citrate treatment. Rats were divided into three groups: an untreated stone-forming group, an O. grandiflorum-treated stone-forming group and a potassium citrate-treated stone forming group. Ethylene glycol (0.5%) was… CONTINUE READING
