Fidia Farmaceutici s.p.a. Key Developments

Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A. Introduces Hymovi

Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A. will introduce Hymovis (high molecular weight viscoelastic hyaluronan) at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) in Orlando, March 1, to March 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. Scientists from Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A. and the research group led by Dr. Lawrence Bonassar, Professor in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University worked together to verify the optimal lubricating characteristics of the HA derivative. Hymovis was bioengineered using a proprietary process that results in a natural hyaluronan similar to the hyaluronan found in the synovial fluid present in human joints. The formulation allows the molecule to recover its original structure, even after repetitive mechanical stress. Due to reversible hydrophobic interactions, the non-crosslinked Hymovis has increased elasticity, viscosity and residence time in the joint.
