Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease associated with a progressive deterioration and wearing away of the cartilage.
IBSA specialises in research and development, production and marketing of hyaluronic acid-based products.
TO HYALURONIC ACID PRODUCTION
IBSA's Hyaluronic Acid is obtained by microbial fermentation and is highly purified. All stages of the manufacturing process take place in Italian plants (located in Lodi and Avellino), thus ensuring complete control of the production chain. IBSA's hyaluronic acid is obtained by microbial fermentation and does not contain any animal-derived ingredients.
IBSA has developed and patented the NAHYCO® technology, a manufacturing process based on an innovative thermal system that enables the creation of hybrid cooperative complexes of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which allow to reproduce the characteristics and properties of the endogenous synovial fluid.
Hybrid Cooperative Complex
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally
occurring substance found in the joints.
It performs important functions,
including lubrication and protection
of the joint cartilage.
