The circadian patterns of serum and urinary urate were studied in 25 healthy Indians and 25 renal stone formers. A marked circadian variation in uric acid concentration was recorded in both the groups with acrophases at 1441 and 1347 hr, respectively (cosinor analysis). Similarly, cosinor rhythmometry confirmed a significant circadian rhythm in urinary uric acid levels during different hours of the 24-hr day-night period in healthy Indians (acrophase at 1229 hr) and renal stone formers… CONTINUE READING
