Abstract: Content of mucopolysaccharides was studied by a test for hexuronic acids and hexosamines in day urine of men and women at the age of 20-80, and older. Mucopolysaccharides were precipitated with ethanol. In urine content of mucopolysaccharides was slightly increased up to the age tof 40-54 and later on it was decreased. Content of acid mucopolysaccharides was lower in urine of women aged 20-29 than in urine of men of the same age group.
