GELSYN-3 is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics (e.g., acetaminophen). Do not administer to patients with known hypersensitivity (allergy) to sodium hyaluronate preparations. Do not inject GELSYN-3 into the knees of patients having knee joint infections or skin diseases or infections in the area of the injection site.

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule found naturally throughout the human body. It is an important component of joint fluid, called synovial fluid, which provides lubrication and cushioning for normal, healthy knees.
When you have osteoarthritis of the knee, the hyaluronic acid breaks down and becomes diluted, reducing its natural elastic properties, which can further degrade cartilage tissue and cause increased joint pain.15
Administered as a series of 3 injections directly into the knee (one every 7 days), GELSYN-3 works to increase the levels of healthy hyaluronic acid in the affected joint.14 The hyaluronic acid in GELSYN-3 safely reduces joint pain and stiffness. Hyaluronic acid (HA) in the knee acts as a supplemental lubricant and shock-absorber. The HA in GELSYN-3 has the same composition as the natural hyaluronic acid your body produces.9,14,36

Gelsyn-3 treats knee osteoarthritis by providing temporary replacement for the diseased synovial fluid in your knee, which is an underlying cause of your pain.When you have knee osteoarthritis, the hyaluronic acid (HA) in the synovial fluid in your knee joint becomes diluted and breaks down—reducing its natural properties. This is associated with increased inflammatory processes that can degrade the cartilage in your knee. This inflammation causes pain receptors to begin firing during normal movement. The pain tends to cause knee osteoarthritis patients to limit movement which, in turn, limits to further deterioration of joint structures and synovial fluid quality because movement is required for normal synovial activity. This process can become a vicious cycle as the disease becomes progressively worse and quality of life is severely compromised for patients.
