[Effects of mangesium salts and their combinations with vitamin B6 on oxalates crystalluria in rats fed with pyridoxine-deficient diet].

[Article in Russian]


We studied the effects of oral magnesium (Mg) salts either alone or in combination with pyridoxine hydrochloride in rats on pyridoxine-deficient diet. Fifty-four male rats were randomized into two groups and were fed either a standard diet or a pyridoxine-deficient diet for 3 weeks. A significant rise of the EGOT index ( > 1.5), oxaluria (from 74.8 +/- 5.2 to 117.9 +/- 12.3 mcM/l, p = 0.035), and crystalluria in rats fed with pyridoxine deficient diet were revealed. Oral Mg chloride, Mg L-aspartate either alone or in combination with pyridoxine in comparison with magnesium sulfate, magne B6 (Mg lactate with pyridoxine) and pyridoxine alone were administered (50 mg of magnesium and/or 5 mg of pyridoxine per kg body weight). Magnesium salts in combination with pyridoxine lowered an oxalate level and crystalluria whereas magnesium salts alone reduced only crystalluria. Antilithis effects of Mg L-aspartate and Mg chloride in combination with pyridoxine were comparable with those observed in magne B6 or pyridoxine treatment and were significantly higher than in magnesium sulfate treatment.
