Pharmacokinetics Bioavailability properties of a glycosamine at oral administration of 25%. It is distributed in fabrics: the highest concentrations are found in a liver, kidneys and an articulate cartilage. About 30% of the accepted dose are long persistirut in bone and muscle tissue.
It is excreted mainly with urine in an invariable look, partially with a stake.
Т½ – 68 h. Bioavailability sulfate chondroitin about 13%.
of Artra® stimulates regeneration of cartilaginous tissue. The glycosamine and chondroitin sodium sulfate take part in biosynthesis of connective tissue, promoting prevention of processes of destruction of a cartilage and stimulating fabric regeneration. Introduction of an exogenous glycosamine strengthens development of a cartilaginous matrix and provides nonspecific protection, including against NPVP and glucocorticosteroids (GKS). Drug possesses moderate anti-inflammatory action.
Chondroitin sodium sulfate irrespective of whether it is soaked up in an intact form or in the form of separate components, serves as additional substrate for formation of a healthy cartilaginous matrix. Stimulates formation of proteoglycans and II collagen and also protects a cartilaginous matrix from zymolysis (by suppression of activity of hyaluronidase) and from the damaging action of free radicals, maintains viscosity of synovial fluid, stimulates mechanisms of a reparation of a cartilage and suppresses activity of those enzymes (elastase, hyaluronidase) which split a cartilage. At treatment of an osteoarthritis facilitates symptoms of a disease and reduces the need for NPVP.
