A close form exists for ... ?

Hello guys,
I try to evaluate the following integral by hand but with no success;
Integrate[1/((x^2+a)(x^2+b))^(1/2),x]
I put it into Mathematica and Mma also can not give me a close form solution.
So, I would like to know if it has close form solution in view of the simplicity of the integrand. Thanks in advance.
