INSTRUCTION FOR THE SPECIALIST.
Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2014.
Chondroxide В® Forte cream has a combined effect: it slows the progression of osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis, has analgesic effect, promotes the increase in joint motion (in the area of вЂ‹вЂ‹application of the cream), has anti-inflammatory effect, reduces swelling of the joints. Due to the optimal combination of the components of the cream, the mutual enhancement of their analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects is noted.
Chondroitin sulfate is a high molecular weight mucopolysaccharide, which is a natural component of cartilaginous tissue. Chondroitin sulfate improves phosphoric-calcium metabolism in cartilaginous tissue, inhibits enzymes that cause cartilage damage, inhibits degeneration (destruction) of cartilaginous tissue, stimulates the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans, promotes the regeneration (restoration) of cartilaginous surfaces of joints, accelerates the repair of their repair, prevents the collapse of connective tissue . This leads to a decrease in soreness and increased mobility of the affected joints.
Meloksikam - NSAIDs, has an anti-inflammatory, analgesic effect. Meloxicam selectively inhibits COX-2, disrupts the metabolism of arachidonic acid, reduces the number of prostaglandins (mediators of pain and inflammation) in the inflammation focus. Meloxicam is a chondrojetral drug, does not have a negative effect on cartilaginous tissue, does not affect the synthesis of proteoglycan by chondrocytes of articular cartilage.
