Title: [Beta]- aminothiols and the regulation of hepatic oxalate production / Paul Wayne Baker.
Author: Baker, Paul Wayne
Issue Date: 1995
School/Discipline: Dept. of Physiology
Abstract: The investigations centre on the use of [beta]-aminothiols (cysteine, cysteamine and penicillamine) to decrease endogenous oxalate production by forming adducts with glyoxylate, the immediate precursor of oxalate. They indicate that cysteine delivery drugs like OTC have the potential to aid in management of calcium oxalate stone disease, thereby reducing endogenous oxalate production and urinary oxalate excretion.
