A Prospective, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Study Using an Orally Administered Oxalate Decarboxylase (OxDC)

Hyperoxaluria is typically associated with excessive oxalate intake in the diet, decreased dietary calcium, hyperabsorption of oxalate, or increased endogenous production of oxalate. The disorder spectrum extends from recurrent kidney stones to ESKD. This clinical trial sought to evaluate the effectiveness of an acid stable oxalate decarboxylase (OxDC) to reduce urinary oxalate in healthy subjects on a high-oxalate diet.

An orally administered OxDC is capable of significantly reducing urinary oxalate levels in healthy volunteers on a high-oxalate diet without affecting creatinine clearance, urine creatinine, or other solutes related to supersaturation of calcium oxalate.
