The prospect of using the antioxidant dipeptide carnosine for the treatment of urate nephrolithiasis was evaluated. Urate nephrolithiasis was modeled in rats by intragastric administration of a mixture of oxonic and uric acids. Carnosine was administered intragastrically through a tube in a dose of 15 mg/kg. In rats treated with carnosine, the concentration of TBA-reactive products decreased by 1.4 times, the total antioxidant activity increased by 1.4 times, and catalase activity increased by 1.3 times. By the end of the experiment, the lactate dehydrogenate level in experimental rats was 2-fold lower than in the control, and the number of urate deposits decreased by 1.6 times with a concomitant alleviation of the inflammatory processes. Thus, the use of direct peptide antioxidant carnosine attenuated the manifestations of urate nephrolithiasis.
