According to official statistics, patients with OA make up one quarter of all patients with musculoskeletal system diseases and OA is detected in 4% of the entire adult population.1 Hyaluronic acid (HA)-based products like DUROLANE and DUROLANE SJ help manage pain in the knees, hips, wrists, elbows, ankles, finger and toe joints of patients with OA.

“We believe the OA market in Russia is underserved and the patients there will benefit greatly from DUROLANE,” said John Nosenzo, Chief Commercial Officer, Bioventus. “Bazis has a terrific track record in marketing and selling orthopaedic solutions in Russia and we are pleased they are helping Bioventus reach more patients and physicians with our proven pain reliever for osteoarthritis.”

“Bazis has been serving patients and physicians in Russia for more than 16 years,” said Aleksandr Alekseev, Director, Bazis NN. “We are excited to offer DUROLANE for knee and hip and DUROLANE SJ for small joints. Both are safe, single injection options for patients that provide powerful and long-lasting OA pain relief.”

DUROLANE and DUROLANE SJ are produced using a natural, safe and proven process called NASHA ® . This process yields stabilized (HA) which is a naturally occurring molecule that provides the lubrication and cushioning in a normal joint. It has been proven to provide greater reduction in OA knee pain versus Synvisc-One®2* and longer lasting pain relief versus a steroid injection3. DUROLANE is also safe for repeated courses of therapy. Repeated use of DUROLANE does not increase the incidence of adverse events.4
