Mythocondro®, the Non-Animal Chondroitin Sulfate: new study on human preliminary results

DESIO, Italy - April 24th, 2018

During next edition of Vitafoods Europe - the tradeshow taking place from May 15th to 17th, 2018 in Palexpo (Geneva) - Gnosis will exclusively disclose the latest clinical results obtained from the new human clinical trial on Mythocondro®, that will be shortly published in an important scientific journal.

Gnosis will dedicate a special corner of its booth #I40 to Mythocondro®, the only vegetarian Non-Animal Chondroitin Sulfate, and will welcome customers and partners to reveal the news provided by the human study, and how these can give an input to the marketing of new finished products containing Chondroitin Sulfate.

We will show:

  1. Bioavailability and pharmacokinetic profile of Mythocondro® in comparison to animal Chondroitin Sulfate (CS) in human volunteers. In particular, two distinctive characteristics of Mythocondro® - the sulfation at position 6 of the disaccharide chain (ΔDi6S) and the charge density – have been evaluated, in order to recognize if they may influence the CS ability to interact with various extracellular molecules, allowing to exert more pronounced chondroprotective effects than a CS of extractive origin.
     
  2. Efficacy and safety of Mythocondro® supplementation in humans, to assess the effects of a low-dose of Non-Animal CS Mytochondro® in treating subjects with moderate knee osteoarthritis.

Mythocondro® has already been extensively studied and characterized through a wide range of preclinical and clinical trials, which were included in two different studies already published in the last few years (Bauerova  et al. 2014;  Miraglia et al. 2016)
