Stimulator of tissue regeneration for external use.
Chondroxide В® has a combined action:
- slows the progression of osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis;

- has analgesic effect;

- has an anti-inflammatory effect;

-stimulates the restoration of articular cartilage;

- improves mobility of joints;

- reduces the swelling of the joints.

Due to the optimal combination of gel components, the mutual enhancement of their analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects is noted.
The use of the drug Chondroxide В® can reduce the dose of NSAIDs taken. Chondroxide В® contains a natural component of chondroitin sulfate (high molecular weight mucopolysaccharide), which takes part in the construction of cartilaginous tissue. Chondroitin sulfate improves phosphoric-calcium metabolism in cartilaginous tissue; reduces the activity of enzymes that destroy cartilaginous tissue; inhibits the processes of degeneration (destruction) of cartilaginous tissue; stimulates the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans; prevents the collapse of connective tissue. This leads to a decrease in soreness and increased mobility of the affected joints.

Chondroxide В® gel is well absorbed.
According to the data obtained in experimental studies in mice using radiolabelled 3 H-chondroitin sulfate, the chondroitin sulphate absorption index is 14%. Dimethyl sulfoxide promotes better penetration of chondroitin sulfate through cell membranes deep into tissues.
Chondroitin sulfate after application of the drug Chondroxide gel on the skin quickly and selectively enters the joint with the attainment of C max after 30 minutes and the subsequent biphasic excretion of the preparation from the cartilage tissue.
Completion of the rapid phase of withdrawal occurs 1 h after application. The retention time of the drug in the joint is 5 hours.
