WHAT IS PENTOSAN PLATINUM?
Pentosan polysulfate sodium (PPS) is a semi-synthetic polysaccharide with a linear xylan (pentosan) backbone. Xylan is a hemicellulose derived from plant origin by extraction from the cell walls of hardwoods. PPS possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic and chondroprotective activities.
HOW DOES IT WORK? Buy Pentosan Platinum is a sterile solution formulated as an aid in the treatment of noninfectious inflammatory joint disease in horses.
Pentosan Platinum actively reverses the effects of osteoarthritis in the joints via a series of actions including:
1. Stimulating Chondrocyte Metabolism:
Results in increased production of proteoglycans and healthy cartilage matrix. PPS stimulates synovial fibroblasts and produces an increased amount of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid which results in an increased production of normally viscous joint fluid.
Improving the fluid volume and consistency results in more effective joint lubrication and also stabilisation, which limits further cartilage damage.
2. Anti-inflammatory Activity: PPS has an inhibitory action on all mediators of the arachidonic acid cascade. PPS also inhibits the lysosomal catabolic enzymes histamine, hyaluronidase, cathepsin.
B, and polymorphonuclear elastase. PPS exerts a specific inhibitory effect on mediators implicated in the degradation of cartilage matrix components, preserving the cartilage and thus preventing the release of the highly inflammatory mediators, which relieves pain and inflammation.
Pentosan Platinum works like an anticoagulant (blood thinner) that prevents the formation of blood clots. However, it is used to treat bladder pain and discomfort caused by cystitis (bladder inflammation or irritation).
