Artiflex is a combined three-component drug for the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system. It contains glucosamine hydrochloride, ibuprofen and allantoin.

Active components

Due to the combined composition, the drug has chondroprotective, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiexudative, membrane-protective and antioxidant effects.

Glucosamine hydrochloride is a low molecular weight mucopolysaccharide that stimulates the regeneration of the joint bag and cartilage of the joint, and also inhibits the destruction of cartilage. Improves the synthesis of intraarticular fluid, which acts as a lubricant, improving joint gliding. Glucosamine hydrochloride increases the resistance of chondrocytes to the action of anti-inflammatory cytokinins and activates metabolic processes in the joint matrix, thereby contributing to the formation of a stable joint. Increases the elasticity and compression resistance of the cartilage, which are necessary to counter physical stress. Glucosamine hydrochloride has a moderate anti-inflammatory effect, therefore, enhances the effect of ibuprofen.

Ibuprofen has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect.

The analgesic effect of ibuprofen is associated with a decrease in the intensity of inflammation, a decrease in the production and weakening of specific pain mediators (analgesic bradykinin). It weakens the pain syndrome, including arthralgia at rest and during movement, reduces morning stiffness and swelling of the joint, and contributes to an increase in range of motion.

Allantoin is a herbal drug for comfrey.

It has anti-inflammatory properties, reduces pain, stimulates bone regeneration.

Methylpyrrolidinone is a transdermal substance that promotes the penetration of the active substances of the cream through the skin into the tissues of the joint.
