Abstract

Tamm and Horsfall glycoprotein was isolated from urine of patients with renal stones and from normal control subjects, and tested for its effect on the crystallization of calcium oxalate in vitro. Preparations from both groups (10-100 μg./ml.) caused slight inhibition of spontaneous precipitation and crystal growth of calcium oxalate. No promotion was found.
