Chondroitin sulfate collects, mainly, in cartilaginous tissue of joints. The synovial membrane is not an obstacle for penetration of drug into a joint cavity. In experiments it is shown that in 15 min. after an intramuscular injection of chondroitin sulfate is found in synovial fluid, then gets into a joint cartilage where its Cmax is reached in 48 h. It is brought out of an organism within 24 hours. It Eliminirutsya mainly by kidneys.
Chondroitin sulfate – the high-molecular mucopolysaccharide influencing exchange processes in a hyaline cartilage. Reduces degenerative changes in cartilaginous tissue of joints, accelerates processes of its restoration, stimulates synthesis of proteoglycans, has hondroprotektivny, anti-inflammatory, analgeziruyushchy effect.
