The concentration of sodium hyaluronate has been determined in amniotic fluid by a specific radioassay. It shows a large individual variation. The mean concentration is approximately 20 μg/ml at Weeks 16-20 of the gestational period. it drops to approximately 1 μg/ml at Week 30 and is then constant until the end of the pregnancy.
