Given his oxalate-rich diet, chronic diarrhea, and daily 680 mg vitamin C and furosemide, we postulated Ca oxalate-induced nephropathy, a diagnosis confirmed by documenting hyperoxaluria, and finding of diffuse intraluminal crystals and extensive interstitial fibrosis on biopsy. He was hemodialysed 6 times to remove excess oxalate. Two weeks off vitamin C, his creatinine spontaneously fell to 3. 1 mg/dL. Three months later, on low oxalate diet and 100 mg vitamin B6, urine oxalate to creatinine ratio.
In the IxOC-2 (Oxalobacter was orally administered for 4 weeks as frozen paste) study, UOx was monitored in five patients with normal renal function (Figure 1). Three were found to be responders and their urinary oxalate/creatinine ratios showed a 22–48% reduction as compared to the baseline. Mean UOx levels (expressed as mmol/1. 73 m2/24 h) for all the patients, although lower at weeks 3 and 4, did not decrease significantly during treatment with IxOC-2 (Table 1, P=NS).
