Background: Urolithiasis is a condition that is caused by the formation of urinary calculi in the renal tubule; it can be defined as the formation of crystals in the urinary tract. Around 4% - 15% of the world population suffers from urinary stones. Urolithiasis is caused by many different factors such as heredity, diet, metabolic abnormality, infection, and slightly by age, gender and climate.
Method: The methodologies used to perform this study in-vitro anti-urolithiatic activity analysis by performing microscopic growth of calcium oxalate stone, nucleation assay and aggregation assay on Brassica oleracea var. capitata Linn.
Result: The inhibition of crystal growth by the plant extract is in a dose dependent manner (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: The anti-urolithiatic activity of Brassica oleracea var. capitata Linn was experimentally proven.
