I don't really know alot about this subject, but one place that you
might look (if you haven't already) is in literature dealing with
diabeties.  This disease causes increased blood glucose levels, and
all it's related problem : cataracts, premature aging...  I believe
that most of these problems are a result of excessive cross-linking. 
There is a drug, aminoguanidine, available in Europe that is supposed
to prevent this from happening by preventing the final bonding step. 
Don't know if that is helpful to you or not, hope so.
