Safe and sustained pain relief with a single injection
A new class of injectable therapy to treat for adults with knee osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis in the knee
Knee Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis, and its incidence is rising. Without a cure, the most effective treatment remains total knee arthroplasty.
A growing demand for new non-surgical treatments
There has been little successful innovation in treating osteoarthritis (OA) over the past 20 years, and apart from surgery, there are few treatment options that can offer long-term benefits to patients.
Potential therapeutic advances have been made, targeting pathways of cartilage catabolism and anabolism, as well as regenerative strategies based on stem cells but more research is needed before these treatments become widely available.
AN INTRA-ARTICULAR POLYACRYLAMIDE HYDROGEL (iPAAG) A NOVEL THERAPEUTIC CONCEPT
Arthrosamid® is an injectable polyacrylamide hydrogel (iPAAG) for intra-articular administration. It is a non-biodegradable single-dose injection that delivers long-acting and sustained pain relief, improving the quality of life for patients with knee osteoarthritis.
WHAT IS iPAAG?
Intra-articular polyacrylamide hydrogel injection (iPAAG) in Arthrosamid® is made of 2.5% cross-linked polyacrylamide and 97.5% water.
Biocompatible: permeable to salts and organic molecules the hydrogel is able to integrate with soft tissue
Viscoelastic: cross-linked chains of polymer allow flexible shear
Non-degradable: structural stability of hydrogel provides longevity of action
