Description

Mucosat Pharmacodynamics
The drug has chondroprotective, stimulates the regeneration of cartilage tissue, and anti-inflammatory action. It participates in the construction of the basic substance of cartilage and bone tissue, improves phosphorus – calcium metabolism in the cartilage tissue, inhibits enzymes that disrupt the structure and function of articular cartilage, inhibits the process of degeneration of cartilage. Stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans, normalizes the metabolism of hyaline cartilage, promotes the regeneration of cartilage surfaces and the joint capsule. It prevents compression of connective tissue, increases synovial fluid production and mobility of affected joints, reduces associated inflammation and pain, and helps reduce the need for NSAIDs.
In degenerative changes of cartilage tissue is a means of substitution therapy.
Positive effect is observed in 2-3 weeks after the beginning of the drug administration. The therapeutic effect persists for a long time (3-6 months) after the end of treatment.
Having structural similarity with heparin, it can potentially prevent the formation of fibrin clots in the synovial and subchondral microcirculatory channel.
