Urinary lithiasis is one of the most common benign urological diseases. There is growing evidence that a delicate equilibrium regulated by the function of proteins, soluble peptides, membrane proteins and intracellular mechanisms actually exists. We have studied the urinary protein composition of patients affected by calcium oxalate nephrolithiasis in order to discover a biomarker or any predisposing factors.
