Description

Chondrogard Pharmacodynamics
A high-molecular-weight mucopolysaccharide that affects metabolic processes in hyaline cartilage.
It reduces degenerative changes in cartilage of joints, accelerates its repair processes, stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans.
Treatment with the drug reduces pain and improves mobility of affected joints. In the treatment of degenerative joint changes with the development of secondary synovitis, a positive effect can be observed 2-3 weeks after the start of drug administration: joint pain decreases, clinical manifestations of reactive synovitis disappear, the volume of movements in affected joints increases. The therapeutic effect persists for a long time after the end of treatment.
