Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide from the family of glucosaminoglycans, the main component of the synovial fluid found in the joints, as well as in the connective tissue, skin and vitreous humor of the eye. Hyaluronic acid normalizes the cellular composition and viscosity of the articular fluid, restores its lubricating and shock-absorbing properties, regulates the functions of the synovial membrane, activates the mobility of granulactives and macrophages, eliminates the effects of inflammatory processes and prevents joint dysfunction; the synovial fluid nourishes the cartilage.
Sodium hyaluronate is an important component of the extracellular matrix, which restores the physiological homeostasis and rheological properties of the synovial fluid, contributes to the normalization of its cellular composition, activating the biosynthesis of hyaluronic acid in the cells of the synovial membrane.
Genetically engineered sodium hyaluronate is a high molecular weight (2,400,000 daltons) natural hyaluronic acid derivative.
When administered parenterally, sodium hyaluronate accumulates in high concentration in the synovial fluid, where it acts therapeutically, is metabolized in the liver, excreted in the form of carbon dioxide and water, partially remains in the body and acts continuously.
