The Implications of the Microbiome on Stone Pathophysiology, Stone Prevention and Novel Diagnostics

Manoj Monga, MD, and Aaron W. Miller, PhD, discuss the effect of the microbiome of the gut and urinary tract on the development and prevention of stone disease. Dr. Miller discusses research into oxalate metabolism in the gut that can lead to kidney stones, how the bacteria lactobacillus crispatus may reveal clues about metabolites that can help prevent the incidence of stones, as well as a strain of E. coli that may be connected to their increase.
