A breakthrough in viscoelastic technology; Hymovis® is an excellent choice for the high-demand patient with OA of the knee
PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 2016 – Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A., a world leader in the research, development and manufacturing of hyaluronic acid (HA)-based products, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Fidia Pharma USA Inc., announced that Hymovis® (high molecular weight viscoelastic hyaluronan) is now commercially available in the U.S.
Hymovis® is a highly viscoelastic hydrogel (HYADD®4) engineered using a proprietary process that increases lubrication and shock absorption properties, and results in a natural hyaluronan similar to the hyaluronan found in the synovial fluid present in human joints. The formulation allows the molecule to recover its original structure, even after repetitive mechanical stress. Due to reversible hydrophobic interactions, the non-crosslinked Hymovis® has increased elasticity, viscosity and residence time in the joint.
Fidia Pharma USA Inc. has partnered with Henry Schein® and Besse® Medical for distribution of Hymovis®. Ordering can take place online at www.henryschein.com and www.besse.com. There are low thresholds for contract pricing and no minimum quantity is required.
For patient specific insurance verifications or general Hymovis® product and reimbursement information, please call 1-866-HYMOVIS or visit www.hymovis.com. For Hymovis® billing and coding, use J3490 in the Physician/Office setting; C9472 in the Hospital Outpatient/Ambulatory Surgical Center and CPT 20619 or 20611.
Hymovis® is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy or simple analgesics (e.g., acetaminophen).
