Patients with renal stones are known to be at risk of clinical complications such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), nephropathy, and cancer. Recently, it has been realized that almost all risk markers for CVD, nephropathy, etc. are all markers associated with the sequence of reactions of chronic inflammation. It has been reported that chronic inflammation is involved not only in the pathogenesis of nephrolithiasis but also contributes to the development of clinical complications in this condition; therefore, we decided to find out whether these multiple markers are detectable in patients with renal stones so that they can be used to predict the risk of clinical complications in these patients. There were 33 patients with nephrolithiasis included in this study. We found that almost all major markers of chronic inflammation were elevated in patients with renal stones, including proinflammatory cytokine, acute inflammation markers, adhesion molecules, urinary microalbumin (uMA), myeloperoxidase (MPO), 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), 3-nitrotyrosine (3NT), and monocyte chemoattractant protein. It appears that it is possible to assess the risk of clinical complications by monitoring these markers in patients with renal stones.
