Viartril-S is the Crystalline Glucosamine Sulphate. It is the original and only Glucosamine Sulphate that has been fully tested in clinical trials for safety and efficacy. Clinical studies and the world-wide clinical experience have shown that Viartril®-S relieves the symptoms (pain and function limitation) of osteoarthritis. Recent, state-of-the-art clinical trials have also demonstrated that Viartril®-S is the first compound that, when given for long-term treatment courses (i.e. at least 3 years), can decrease the progression of osteoarthritis.

Benefits of  Viartril-S work :

Anabolic-Effect – Viartril®-S stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans, the building blocks of the Cartilage Matrix.

Anti-Inflammatory & Anti-Catabolic – Viartril®-S depress cartilage degradation activities by inhibiting the action of catabolic enzymes.

 

What is Glucosamine Sulphate in Viartril-S ?

Glucosamine Sulphate is the salt of the natural amino-sugar glucosamine, which is normally synthesized in the healthy body and is the preferred substances that form the cartilage matrix that are essential for cartilage health and function.

 

The role of glucosamine Sulphate in halting or reversing joint degeneration appears to be directly due to its ability to act as an essential substrate for the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and hyaluronic acid, the chemical backbone needed to form the proteoglycan cartilage found in the structural matrix of joints. Glucosamine also inhibits cartilage breakdown by chondrocytes. Recent studies confirm that glucosamine is bioavailable both systemically and in the joints after oral administration of crystalline glucosamine Sulphate in osteoarthritis patients (Persiani, 2007).

 

Rottapharm, the European patent holder and manufacturer of this product, sponsored two large (at least 100 patients per group), three-year, placebo-controlled clinical trials of Viartril-S. Both studies demonstrated a clear benefit for glucosamine treatment (Reginster, 2001). There was not only an improvement in symptoms, but also an improvement in joint space narrowing on radiographs. These results indicate that glucosamine can actually help prevent the destruction of cartilage that is the hallmark of osteoarthritis, unlike pain relievers such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (Pavelká, 2002). Successful treatment of osteoarthritis should effectively control pain and slow down or reverse the progression of the degeneration. Research proves glucosamine Sulphate is capable of satisfying both of these criteria. It generally takes around four weeks before improvements in symptoms are noticed when taking glucosamine, and longer for radiographic changes.

 

Most of the positive scientific research conducted on glucosamine has been done on glucosamine Sulphate, and it has been found to be conclusively more effective than glucosamine HCl, since the Sulphate part of the salt is needed by the body to produce cartilage as well.

Recent European League Against Rheumatism practice guidelines for knee osteoarthritis give glucosamine Sulphate the highest level of evidence and strength of the recommendation.

 

Adverse effects, which are usually mild and infrequent, include stomach upset, constipation, diarrhoea, headache, and rash. It is contraindicated in persons with allergy to shellfish.
