Common Questions

What is hyaluronic acid used for?

How is hyaluronic acid given?

Hyaluronic acid is administered by intra-articular injection. Intra-articular means your healthcare professional will insert a needle into the space in your knee joint that contains fluid used for lubrication and cushioning.

How does hyaluronic acid work?

The fluid (synovial fluid) in your knee helps to lubricate and cushion the joint during movement. The major component in the synovial fluid is hyaluronic acid, the same active component of GenVisc 850. One of the early effects of OA is to break down this fluid, making it less effective. A hyaluronic acid injection may help restore the synovial fluid to a healthier state, thereby reducing the pain of OA. Typically, the full benefits of hyaluronic acid are experienced after the third injection, however pain relief may begin following the first injection.

How long will the relief last?

Clinical studies have found that the relief of pain resulting from the hyaluronic acid treatments can last as long as 6 months. This will vary from patient to patient, and by the number of treatments received.

Is hyaluronic acid approved for use in the U.S.?

GenVisc 850 was approved by the FDA for use in the United States in September 2015. There have now been over 45 million doses administered worldwide since its first approval, and it has been studied in over 30 clinical trials for use in relieving osteoarthritis knee pain.

What are the benefit of receiving hyaluronic acid treatment?

Successful treatment with hyaluronic acid should reduce pain in an osteoarthritic knee. Because it is a local treatment, hyaluronic acid should not interfere with any medicine that the patient may take.

What are the possible side effects?

While rare, some side effects (also called reactions) may occur during the injection, with symptoms such as knee pain, inflammation, reddening, swelling appearing at the injection site, joint pain. Because hyaluronic acid is administered through a needle you may experience some local pain or discomfort when it is administered, as may be expected with all injections.
