Gel-One Cross-Linked Hyaluronate is a transparent, sterile, and viscoelastic gel made from sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronan). The hyaluronan used to make Gel-One comes from rooster combs and is highly purified.
Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in high amounts in synovial joints. It acts like a lubricant and shock absorber in the joint and is needed for the joint to work properly.
What is viscosupplementation?
Viscosupplementation is a treatment for osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in which an injection of sodium hyaluronate is delivered directly into the joint space. Viscosupplementation has been known to relieve pain associated with OA of the knee. There are many different viscosupplements available, Gel-One Cross-Linked Hyaluronate is one option.
Intra-articular (into the joint) viscosupplementation has been available in the U.S. market for a number of years. Gel-One Hyaluronate is the first to offer a convenient single-injection treatment with a low volume of only 3mL.
