Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The serum concentrations of different glycosaminoglycan fractions have been studied in diabetic subjects without evidence of vascular complications and compared with those of age- and sex-matched normal subjects. Electrophoretic analysis of the various glycosaminoglycan fractions showed an increase in hyalunoric acid and heparin, and a decrease in heparan sulfate, chondroitin-4-sulfate and chondroitin-6-sulfate. Furthermore, the levels of glycosylated haemoglobin A1 were positively correlated with those of hyaluronic acid (r=0.96, p
