Saluting Innovation @ Sanofi

Saluting Innovation at Sanofi for providing a unique treatment for osteoarthritis knee pain with an injection named Synvisc-One. The treatment enhances your natural joint fluid to give the knee the lubrication and cushioning it needs to work properly. In knees with osteoarthritis, the cartilage protecting the ends of your bones gradually deteriorates, joint fluid loses its shock-absorbing qualities and bones may begin to rub against each other. Synvisc can provide up to six months of pain relief. By extending the benefits of this therapeutic approach to a broader patient base, reducing cost, and removing the burden of multiple injections, it is redefining the market for viscosupplementation products. I recently received a Synvisc-One injection in my right knee and can attest the benefits. Thanks to this unique therapy, I will be flying down the ski slopes pain free this winter. We salute Sanofi for discovering and developing therapies that are changing lives.
