pharmachologic effect
Pharmacological group:
Tissue repair promoter.
Pharmacological properties:
Stimulates the regeneration of cartilage tissue. Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are involved in the synthesis of connective tissue, helping to prevent cartilage destruction processes and stimulating tissue regeneration. Exogenous glucosamine increases the production of cartilage matrix and provide non-specific protection against chemical damage to the cartilage. Another possible action of glucosamine is the protection of the damaged cartilage from metabolic destruction caused by nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and glucocorticosteroids (GCS) and own a moderate anti-inflammatory effect.
Chondroitin sulfate is an additional substrate for the formation of healthy cartilage matrix. Stimulates formation gialuronona synthesis of proteoglycans and collagen type II, but also protects it from enzymatic cleavage gialuronon (by inhibition of hyaluronidase activity); It maintains the viscosity of synovial fluid, stimulates cartilage repair mechanisms and suppresses the activity of those enzymes that cleave cartilage (elastase, hyaluronidase). It facilitates the treatment of osteoarthritis symptoms of the disease and reduce the need for NSAIDs.
Absorption. The bioavailability of glucosamine orally at reception – 25% (the effect of “first pass” through the liver).
Metabolism. After absorption of the oral dose radiolabeled glucosamine initially detected in the plasma and later penetrates the tissue. The highest concentrations found in the liver, kidney, and articular cartilage. About 30% of the dose long persist in the bone tissue and muscles.
Elimination. Excreted mainly by the kidneys in unchanged form; partially – through the intestine. The half-life is 68 hours.
Chondroitin sulfate:
Absorption. When administered chondroitin sulfate once in a dose of 0.8 g of (or two times a day 0.4 g) plasma concentration is increased over 24 h. The absolute bioavailability is 12%.
Metabolism. It metabolized by desulfurization.
Elimination. Excreted by the kidneys. The half-life 310 minutes.
