Some great reading on GAGs:

“Glycosaminoglycans: Their Role in Wound Management” by George D. Petito, Ph.D.
“Effects of PSGAG in conjunction with an occlusive or non-occlusive dressing in preparing granulation tissue for re-epithelialization.”
“The Effect of CHONDROPROTEC® (a polysulfated glycosaminoglycan) on wound healing.”
