Does the Bladder Mucosa Contribute to Urinary Inhibitory Activity?
Glycosaminoglycans and mucosubstances in the mucosal layer of the bladder appear to have a bacterial anti-adherence function1. The washing of these macromolecules off the bladder wall may contribute to the inhibitory activity of urine. The aim of this study was to determine whether or not the bladder contributes to urinary inhibitory activity.
