Overall, the metal profiles showed similar trends between lithogenic elements such as Ti, K/Ti ratio and trace metals (such as Pb), suggesting the catchment to be the main material source of metals.
Hepatogenous photosensitization of ruminants by Brachiaria decumbens and Panicum dichotomiflorum in the absence of sporidesmin: lithogenic saponis may be responsible.
The shale and quartzite gravels were initially cemented by lithogenic silica, so the intrusion of pedogenic Fe-Mn-Al oxides, which probably occurred after the gravels had become interred in the soil matrix, must have had more of a colouring than a cementation effect.
Pathogenesis of bladder calculi is likely complex with multiple contributing lithogenic factor, in adult (mainly men over 50 years) outlet obstruction is the main aetiological factor, BPH being the most common cause.
Quinn et al (12) showed that secondary skin photosensitization due to liver impairment could be influenced by the presence of lithogenic steroidal saponin present in Brachiaria spp.
22 who also showed hepatocytes were filled with multilocular fat droplets of varying sizes due to lithogenic diet in mice.
The second is that the identified microorganisms are potentially dangerous pathogens that may cause nosocomial and opportunistic infections (staphylococcusspecies), may be multidrug resistant (enterococcus) and may have lithogenic effects (proteus).
When urine becomes oversaturated with lithogenic substances, uroliths may form and can interfere with complete and frequent voiding of urine.
