PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A., a world leader in the research, development and manufacturing of hyaluronan (HA) - based products and its wholly owned subsidiary, Fidia Pharma USA Inc., announces their presence at the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) 2017 Annual Meeting with an educational symposium on Thursday, May 11th at 12:10 p.m. – 1:10 p.m.
HYMOVIS® is a breakthrough in hyaluronan (HA) based intra-articular (IA) therapy for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) knee pain. Specifically engineered to fulfill a need of having a true viscoelastic hydrogel that is non-crosslinked and naturally derived from non-avian sources, HYMOVIS® maintains enhanced properties of improved lubrication to decrease friction, exhibits greater elasticity in recovering its original structure even after repeated mechanical stresses, and demonstrates increased residence time in the knee joint. HYMOVIS® is delivered as an IA injection in a convenient 2-dose regimen, with each injection given one week apart.
Information on the development, novel characteristics of the unique molecular structure, new comparative data on the improved lubricating properties of HYMOVIS® and clinical data supporting the long-lasting efficacy of this innovative and unique HA-based viscoelastic hydrogel will be presented.
Further information can be found by visiting the Fidia booth (Booth #200) in the exhibit hall or at www.hymovis.com.
