Mucosat neo is used to treat degenerative-dystrophic diseases of the joints and spine. In particular, during treatment: osteoarthritis, osteochondrosis; primary arthrosis, intervertebral osteochondrosis; osteoporosis, periodontal disease; fractures, treatment of the consequences of surgical interventions on the joints.
Mucosat neo composition
Main active ingredient: chondroitin sulfate.
Auxiliary components are: benzyl alcohol, water for injection.
It is produced in the form of an injection solution, in ampoules of 2 ml. 1 ampoule contains 200 mg of chondroitin.
Mucosat neo belongs to the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and antirheumatic drugs that are used for diseases of the joints and spine.
The main active ingredient, chondroitin, is a polymeric sulfated glycosaminoglycan. It is an integral part of the articular synovial fluid secreted by the cartilage tissue of the joint. Able to suppress the activity of enzymes that cause disruption of the integrity of cartilage tissue.
Chondroitin, as well as its constituent glucosamine, has the property of influencing the metabolic chemical processes occurring in the cartilage tissue, in which calcium and phosphorus participate. The structure is similar to heparin, as a result – prevents the formation of fibrin thrombi. It is able to inhibit the process of resorption of bone tissue, prevents the development of seals of connective tissue. It is a lubricant for the joint surface.
Also, chondroitin has the ability to normalize the production of articular fluid, to take part in the reproduction of the basic substances of bone tissue, as well as cartilage tissue.
As a result, when using this drug, joint mobility improves, the development of osteoarthritis slows down. At the same time, the inflammatory process decreases and pain in the joints affected by the disease decreases.
