Study concludes Ostenil Plus "as effective" as high molecular weight hyaluronan "but cheaper".
Maliha Shaikh et al. presented a poster at the 2015 Rheumatology Conference organised by BSR, on "A Comparison of Two Hyaluronic Acid Preparations in Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis". The study concluded that "HA injections in our sample led to a significant improvement in pain VAS for up to 6 months. HA injections seem a useful adjunct in knee OA with a single injection of Ostenil Plus as effective but cheaper than Synvisc One in our cohort."
