Paper Abstract

The diffusion of glucose with various concentrations through human sclera and cerebral membrane in vitro was studied. The dynamics of this process was monitored by time-dependent weight and optical measurements. Glucose administration induces the diffusion of matter and as a reslut the equalization of the refractive indices of collagen fibrils and ground material, and corresponding changes of transmittance spectra of fibrous tissue. Transmittance spectra of the human scleral and cerebral membrane samples impregnated by glucose were measured. Investigation of diffusion process in scleral samples, previously dried and swelled in distillated water was performed. Experimental results are presented.
