Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of OxabactTM on Reduction of Urinary Oxalate in Primary Hyperoxaluria Patients

The main purpose of this study is to determine if Oxalobacter formigenes is effective at lowering urinary oxalate levels in patients with primary hyperoxaluria.

Oxalobacter Formigenes Colonization and Urinary Oxalate Excretion

The purpose of this research study is to assess the efficacy of ingesting a small amount of the harmless bacterium Oxalobacter formigenes in establishing residence in the guts of human sub...

A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Oxabact in Patients With Primary Hyperoxaluria

This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of OC5 in patients with PH.

A Study of DCR-PH1 in Patients With Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 1 (PH1)

A phase 1 study of DCR-PH1 in patients with primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) to determine the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) effects of DCR-PH1 admi...

Primary Hyperoxaluria Mutation Genotyping

This study will help us determine whether certain genetic mutations, more than others, are a cause of more severe disease in Primary Hyperoxaluria.

Paraplegia as a presentation of primary hyperoxaluria.

30% of the patients suffering from hyperoxaluria type 1 are diagnosed only when they already had reached end-stage renal disease. We report the case of a 57-year-old woman with history of chronic kidn...

Imaging features of primary hyperoxaluria.

Primary hyperoxaluria (PH) is a group of autosomal recessive diseases that affect the metabolism of glyoxalate and oxalate. As a result of the enzymatic deficiency, there is overproduction and urinary...

Translation inhibition corrects aberrant localization of mutant alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase: possible therapeutic approach for hyperoxaluria.

Primary hyperoxaluria type 1 is a severe kidney stone disease caused by abnormalities of the peroxisomal alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase (AGT). The most frequent mutation G170R results in aberrant...

Functional eubacteria species along with trans-domain gut inhabitants favour dysgenic diversity in oxalate stone disease.

Analyses across all three domains of life are necessary to advance our understanding of taxonomic dysbiosis in human diseases. In the present study, we assessed gut microbiota (eubacteria, archaea, an...

Increasing effort without noticing: A randomized controlled pilot study about the ergogenic placebo effect in endurance athletes and the role of supplement salience.

Previous research shows that endurance performance can be enhanced by placebo ergogenic aids. This study investigates the ergogenic placebo response, which we define as an increase in objective and ph...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The sole species of the genus Oxalobacter consisting of straight or curved gram-negative rods with rounded ends. Cells are nonmotile, nonsporing, and use oxylates as the only source of CARBON and energy, with formate and CARBON DIOXIDE as end products. They are isolated from lake sediments and from the rumen or large bowel of humans and animals. (From Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology, 9th ed)

A genetic disorder characterized by excretion of large amounts of OXALATES in urine; NEPHROLITHIASIS; NEPHROCALCINOSIS; early onset of RENAL FAILURE; and often a generalized deposit of CALCIUM OXALATE. There are subtypes classified by the enzyme defects in glyoxylate metabolism.

Excretion of an excessive amount of OXALATES in the urine.

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
