Description

Artogistan Pharmacodynamics
It has a chondrostimulating, regenerating, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. Chondroitin sulfate is involved in the construction of the basic substance of cartilage and bone tissue. It has chondroprotective properties, enhances metabolic processes in hyaline and fibrous cartilage, subchondral bone, inhibits enzymes that cause degeneration (destruction) of articular cartilage, stimulates the production of chondrocytes proteoglycans. Helps reduce the release into the synovial fluid of inflammatory mediators and pain factors, inhibits the secretion of leukotrienes and prostaglandins. Slows bone resorption and reduces calcium loss, speeds up bone repair processes.
Chondroitin sulfate slows the progression of osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis. Helps restore the joint capsule and cartilage surfaces of joints, prevents collapse of connective tissue, and normalizes the production of joint fluid.
The use of the drug reduces pain and improves mobility of affected joints, while the therapeutic effect lasts for a long time after the end of therapy. In the treatment of degenerative changes in the joints, accompanied by secondary synovitis, the effect is observed in 2-3 weeks from the start of the course.
Having structural similarity with heparin, it can potentially prevent the formation of fibrin clots in the synovial and subchondral microcirculatory channel.
