Brief Summary:
The goal of this research project is to establish that in short-term use, tolvaptan is a safe and potentially effective new therapy for cystinuria, by conducting a short-term pilot study of the safety and tolerability of this drug, and assess impact on urinary stone risk parameters, among adolescent and young adult patients with clinical cystinuria.

Drug Information available for: Tolvaptan

Arm Intervention/treatment
Tolvaptan Drug: Tolvaptan



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The short-term safety profile of tolvaptan therapy in adolescent patients with cystinuria will be measured by daily hospital visits where they will be monitored for alterations in blood pressure. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  2. The short-term safety profile of tolvaptan therapy in adolescent patients with cystinuria will be measured by daily blood tests. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The short-term effect of tolvaptan on urinary risk factors for urolithiasis in adolescent patients with cystinuria will be measured by daily composite urine analysis. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
