Naturally occurring acids. viz., lactic, malic, tartaric, citric or
succinic acids have been studied as inhibitors in the mineralisation
of winary stone forming minerals, viz., calcium phosphate, oxalate
or carbonate. Inhibition efficiency has been studied in different
experimental models. Utility of these acids in urolithiasis inhibition
has been discussed.
