Physicochemical factors of the urine of children with hypercalciuria.

CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that children with hypercalciuria without lithiasis associated show an increase in natriuresis, phosphaturia, uricosuria, magnesuria and citraturia. We found no differences between these urinary abnormalities when compared hypercalciuric children without lithiasis with those with hypercalciuria and urolithiasis.

AbstractNephrolithiasis is a common urological disease with high prevalence and recurrence rates. Characterizing gut microbiome profiles of nephrolithiasis patients may provide valuable insights and potential biomarkers for the disease. Therefore, we explored the relation between gut microbiome and nephrolithiasis using 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequencing. 13 patients with multiple kidney stones and 13 matched healthy controls were recruited. A decreasing trend in number of observed species in nephrolithiasis patients was detected, although statistical significance was not reached (p = 0.086). The inter-...

AbstractNephrolithiasis is a common urological disease and could be secondary to primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). PHPT is traditionally characterised with hypercalcaemia. Recently, a normocalcemic PHPT has been officially recognised at the International Workshops. Regarding this new phenotype, nephrolithiasis is frequently found in studies that evaluate low bone mass. However, until now, no study on aetiology of nephrolithiasis considered normocalcemic PHPT. Hypercalciuria related to PHPT is considered as an important risk factor of stone formation in hypercalcemic PHPT, but the precise relationships between hypercalcem...

In this study, we aimed to examine the transport of xanthine dehydrogenase inhibitors via ABCG2. Our results show that ABCG2 transports oxypurinol, an active metabolite of allopurinol, whereas allopurinol and febuxostat, a new xanthine dehydrogenase inhibitor, are not substrates of ABCG2. The amount of oxypurinol transported by ABCG2 vesicles significantly increased in the presence of ATP, compared to that observed with mock vesicles. Since the half-life of oxypurinol is longer than that of allopurinol, the xanthine dehydrogenase-inhibiting effect of allopurinol mainly depends on its metabolite, oxypurinol. Our results ind...

ConclusionsThe evaluation process can diagnose serious medical conditions in a significant minority of donors that would have otherwise been unrecognized. The benefit associated with the donor evaluation should be considered an important part of the consent process.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AbstractIn recent years, the role of trace elements in lithogenesis has received steadily increasing attention. It is well documented that some trace elements can influence the morphology and speed of the crystallization process. Zinc has been found in significant amounts in calcium stones relative or organic stones (uric acid and cystine), probably substituting calcium in crystals because of their similarity in charge and size. High Zn levels are present in carbapatite of Randal ’s plaques suggesting that zinc could promote calcium phosphate deposition in the medullar interstitium. Large-scale epidemiological studie...

Conclusions: Kidney stones are very common in adult patients with HSK with an estimated incidence of 36%. Calcium-based stones are the most prevalent kidney stones in adults with HSKs. These findings may impact the prevention and clinical management of kidney stones in patients with HSK.

Conclusion: Because of high prevalence of metabolic risk factors and the significant risk of lifelong recurrence, all children with urolithiasis need complete evaluation with metabolic workup.
