Why Hyaluronic Acid?

  • Decisive for the organisation of cartilage proteoglycan aggregates.
  • Functions as a filter to stop the flow of molecules which are harmful for chondrogenesis, e.g. erythrocytes and leukocytes.
  • Viscoelastic properties and is a natural part of the synovial fluid and of the extracellular chondrocyte matrix.
