Fidia Introduces Hymovis®, a Next-Generation Hyaluronan, at the AAOS Annual Meeting in Orlando

Hymovis®, which is being launched in the U.S, is a highly viscoelastic hydrogel (HYADD®4) engineered using a proprietary process that increases lubrication and shock absorption properties

PARSIPPANY, N.J., February 25, 2016 – Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A., a world leader in the research, development and manufacturing of hyaluronic acid (HA)-based products, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Fidia Pharma USA Inc., will introduce Hymovis® (high molecular weight viscoelastic hyaluronan) at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) in Orlando, March 1-5, 2016.

Hymovis® is a next-generation of HA-based intra-articular (IA) therapy 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 or simple analgesics. The product has a shorter treatment cycle of only two intra-articular injections as compared to many other IA HA viscosupplement regimens to provide pain relief for the patient.
