    Our technology A safe and effective cross-linking ​ Arthromac® products are made with a hyaluronic acid produced in France , with the highest level of purity available in the industry today, and cross-linked through a proprietary process using no chemical agent called X-Click Technology. About HYALURONIC ACID Hyaluronic acid (HA), a linear polysaccharide that occurs naturally in the synovial fluid and cartilage, is fully biocompatible and has remarkable properties for the treatment of osteoarthritis . However, once injected into the tissues, a natural and unmodified molecule of HA will be rapidly degraded and absorbed. ​ This depolymerization which transforms long HA chains (polysaccharides) into smaller HA units (oligosaccharides) is due to enzymes (hyaluronidases), free radicals, heat and mechanical stresses. Therefore, to increase the residence time of HA and its beneficial action in the tissues, it is crucial to protect it against these enzymatic, oxidative, thermal and mechanical degradations by a process of cross-linking (reticulation). About CHEMICAL CROSS-LINKING To improve the duration of HA in vivo, a common method is to form a hydrogel by covalently cross-linking the HA polymer chains into a three-dimensional network. Unfortunately, this cross-linking process involving chemical agents (such as such as 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE), formaldehyde, divinyl sulfone etc.) impairs the biocompatibility, the ease of injectablity, as well as the natural viscoelastic and biological properties of the HA molecule. The later will have an impaired biocompatibility with a greater risk of hypersensitivity reactions [1-5], a more rigid structure, a lower water-binding capacity, and a lower capacity on the production of extracellular matrix components [6] . Such adverse events and disadvantages are avoided with the use of a physical cross-linking instead of a chemical one [1, 7, 8]. About our exclusive technology PHYSICAL CROSS-LINKING NOVATEX BIOENGINEERING, an Astagen Therapeutics division, through its collaboration with the CNRS (The French National Centre for Scientific Research), has developed a new cross-linking technology, called X-Click technology, making it possible to physically transform a linear HA into a stabilized three-dimensional HA network without any chemical agents . This proprietary technology is based on the click chemistry [9] and used crystallization to create intermolecular and intramolecular hydrogen bonding (Fig 1). ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ This physical hydrogel is a good alternative because of the absence of organic solvents and toxic cross-linking agents [10-14]. As a result, the HA cross-linked with X-Click Technology is non-toxic, fully biocomptabible, easy to inject, with unaltered viscoelastic and biological properties [15,16]. Fig. 1.

The durability varies from several months to more than a year depending on : - the patient’s condition an d age - the patient’s lifestyle - the severity of the osteoarthritis - the type and size of the affected joint - the technique of injection ​ It should also be noted that the effectiveness of a viscosupplement increases with the number of treatment courses. How will the doctor prepare my joint for injection ? Before injecting ANTALVISC® into your joint, the doctor will : - clean your joint with disinfectants - apply a local anesthetic to your joint - withdraw any excess fluid from your joint. ​ ••• Is Arthromac® injection painful ? The injection is relatively painless. The topical application of an anesthetic agent is possible to improve patient comfort. ​ ••• What type of joints can be treated with Arthromac® ? All synovial joints affected by osteoarthritis can be treated. Particularly the knee and hip, but also the ankle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers, toes, and the temporomandibular and facet joints. ​ ••• What degrees of severity of osteoarthritis can be treated ? ARTHROMAC® can be used for the treatment of all grades of osteoarthritis. ​ ••• Are there any adverse events following Arthromac® injection ? Following injection, transient pain and swelling of the injected joint may occur. These temporary reactions which generally subside over 72 hours do not have to be the source of concern and can be simply treated by resting and applying ice to the injected joint. Arthromac® does not have the serious side effects associated with NSAIDs and corticosteroids. ​ ••• What are the recommendations to follow after Arthromac® injection ? After the injection, you can resume normal day-to-day activities, but an articular rest of approximately 24 hours is rec ommended (no strenuous exercise). ​ ••• How effective is Arthromac® compared to NSAIDs and corticosteroids ? Arthromac® provides comparable pain relief to NSAIDs and corticosteroids during the first weeks, with a much longer duration of action (up to 15 months). Moreover, contrary to NSAIDs and corticosteroids, ANTALVISC® provides : - a correction of the stiffness and an improvement of the mobility - a complete safety. Numerous side effects and counter-indications are linked to the use of NSAIDs and corticosteroids - chondroprotective and wound healing properties, enabling to protect and repair cartilage - an easier evacuation of cartilaginous remains Clinical studies also show that the use of NSAIDs or corticosteroids in combination with viscosupplementation is more effective for reducing pain than NSAIDs or corticosteroids alone. ​ ••• When will I start to feel pain relief ? Everyone responds differently, but the pain relief generally starts between 2 and 4 weeks after the injection. ​ ••• Can both my knees be treated with Arthromac® ? Yes, you can receive one injection in each individual knee at the same time, or at different times. ​ ••• Can I repeat the treatment ? Yes, if the symptoms return after several months, the injection of Arthro mac® can be repeated safely and effectively for a new period of pain relief (generally longer than the previous one). ​ ••• Are there other indications for Arthromac® use ? Besides being used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, Arthromac® may also be indicated for post-surgical management, particularly in the reduction of post-arthroscopic pain. ​ ••• Who can inject Arthromac® ? A medical practitioner familiar and trained in the intra-articular injections. Medical specialists include (but not exclusively): rheumatologist, orthopaedic surgeon, radiologist, musculoskeletal physician, sports physician, general physician. ​ Interested in distributing Arthromac or finding a supplier for your medical practice?

    Get back to an active life What is Arthromac OSTEOARTHRITIS JOINT PAINT RELIEF ARTHROMAC® is a product for viscosupplementation, which is a safe, effective, and well-established treatment for osteoarthritis (OA) consisting in injecting a hyaluronic acid-based solution into the affected joint. It relieves pain, restores articular function and protects cartilage. A single, intraarticular injection of Arthromac® provides a rapid and powerful osteoarthritis pain relief that can last up to 12 months How does it work RESTORING JOINT LUBRICATION In osteoarthritis (OA) joints, the quality and quantity of hyaluronic acid (HA), a major component of the synovial fluid responsible for the lubrication and cushioning in joints, are diminished. As a result, the synovial fluid has lower viscosity and elasticity, decreasing its ability to lubricate the joint and absorb shocks. ​ ARTHROMAC® replaces and supplements the unhealthy synovial fluid to increase the quality and quantity of the endogenous HA and to restore its viscoelastic properties. ​ ARTHROMAC® lubricates and cushions the joint and protects the cartilage, thereby reducing pain, improving mobility and articular function, and retarding progression of OA. What is osteoarthritis A COMMON DISORDER TO TREAT Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder and a leading cause of chronic disability. Its prevalence increases with age and the common symptoms are pain, stiffness and loss of motion. OA most often affects knees, hips, spine, hands and feet, but can affect almost any joint in the body. ​ OA is the result of mechanical and biological events that destabilize the balance between synthesis and degradation of cartilage and which affects all articular structures. OSTEOARTHRITIS JOINT Cartilage wears away: The cartilage is eroded by the forces of friction and compression. Synovial fluid becomes less healthy: The fluid becomes thinner and less elastic, losing its ability to provide a good cushion. Exposed bone: Over time, the bone surfaces may rub together. Bone spurs: Osteophytes can form and grow ​ OA is a chronic condition that gradually worsens over time and can become rapidly painful and incapacitating. ARTHROMAC® will prevent and slow its progression and will reduce joint pain and stiffness.
