Urinary glycosaminoglycans are selectively included into calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystals precipitated from whole human urine: The presence of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the organic matrix of urinary stones, and their known effects on CaOx crystallization have prompted speculation regarding their role in CaOx urolithiasis. The aim of this study was to examine the involvement of GAGs in the early stages of CaOx crystallization in human urine. Urine samples were collected from healthy men and… CONTINUE READING
