ARTICULAR cartilage contains a high concentration of acid glycosaminoglycans (GAG), reaching 6% by wet weight and associated with fixed charge densities up to 0.2 mEq g−1. This leads to considerable swelling pressure within cartilage, due to, first, the strongly non-ideal osmotic pressure, characteristic of polymer solutions, which increases sharply with concentration and, second, the ionic contribution, in accordance with the Gibbs-Donnan equilibrium. Ogston and Wells1–3 have estimated the… Expand
