Solution for injection, transparent, colorless or slightly brownish yellow, or light yellow.
bioactive concentrate from shallow marine fish (sprat (Sprattus sprattus sprattus), Black Sea whiting (Odontogadus merlangus euxinus), Black Sea shad (Alosa tanaica nordmanni), Black Sea anchovy (Engraulis encrassicholus ponticus)), obtained by extraction followed by deproteinization and delipidization.
The drug, which regulates the metabolism of cartilage tissue, chondroprotector. It is represented by the bioactive concentrate from shallow marine fish containing mucopolysaccharides (chondroitin sulfate), amino acids, peptides; sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc ions.
Alflutop prevents the destruction of macromolecular structures of normal tissues, stimulates regeneration processes in the interstitial tissue and articular cartilage tissue, which explains its analgesic effect.
Anti-inflammatory effect and tissue regeneration are based on the suppression of hyaluronidase activity and normalization of the biosynthesis of hyaluronic acid.
Both these effects are synergistic and cause the activation of regenerative processes in tissues, in particular, restoring the structure of the cartilage.
