Being a natural component of the human body, hyaluronic acid (HY) is totally biocompatible, non-immunogenic and non-toxic.
Thanks to these unique characteristics, hyaluronic acid and its derivatives can be used in many areas of medicine, such as rheumatology, orthopaedics, tissue repair, aesthetics/dermatology, and surgery.
Fidia produces HYs with different ranges of molecular weight, according to the indications designed for the finished products. In addition, Fidia's breakthrough patented technology process is able to chemically modify the molecule in order to obtain suitable chemical derivatives, with different physical (processability, residence time, viscosity) and biological (receptor-mediated stimulation) properties.
Through patented chemical modification processes, Fidia is able to produce linear derivatives and auto-crosslinked hyaluronic acid without the use of crosslinking agents, which are generally viewed as a source of safety problems, starting from natural HY only and obtaining a biopolymer suitable to be degraded again into natural hyaluronic acid.
