Foremost has been the paucity of direct methods to measure it with sufficient specificity and sensitivity in the easily available body fluids and tissue samples. Even where H A is a b u n d a n t , glycoproteins and other saccharides interfere with its measure­ ment as either glucuronic acid or acetylglucosamine unless complex steps are taken to separate it beforehand. This problem is compounded by the fact that the levels of H A in plasma and urine are even lower than those of other glycosaminoglycans.
