A method for studying the distribution of a high molecular weight solute (serum albumin) between physiological saline and human articular cartilage is described. Samples of normal and fibrillated articular cartilage from both femoral condyles and femoral heads have been studied. Limited studies have also been performed where the glycosaminoglycan content of normal cartilage has been reduced by chemical or enzymic methods. With naturally occurring cartilage a wide range of partition coefficients (0.3 to less than 0.002) was obtained. The partition coefficients are very dependent upon proteoglycan concentration, with the partition coefficient decreasing with increasing fixed charge density. An attempt is made to interpret the observed partitioning in terms of the steric exclusion by the proteoglycans.
