Arthropen Vet 250 : Pentosan polysulfate is a semisynthetic polysaccharide polymer that possesses anti-inflammatory, antiarthritic and chondroprotective properties.
These beneficial effects arise from direct anti-inflammatory activity;
inhibition of neutrophil migration into joints;
stimulation of hyaluronic acid synthesis by synovial fibroblasts which results in a marked increase in synovial volume and viscosity;
stimulation of chondrocytes and the biosynthesis of proteoglycans;
strong fibrinolytic activity which improves the circulation of subchondral bone and periarticular structures.
