A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
EUFLEXXA is an ultra-high purity hyaluronan, also called hyaluronic acid (HA) or sodium hyaluronate. HA is the natural substance found in the fluid that surrounds a healthy knee joint and helps cushion, lubricate, and protect the knee as you move throughout the day. EUFLEXXA is similar to the human HA found in healthy knee joints. When EUFLEXXA is injected into the knee joint, it works by replenishing the HA in the knee and restoring the synovial fluids ability to cushion, lubricate, and protect the knee joint.
All Injections must be injected by a practitioner who has medical and specialist training. The practitioner must be medically qualified. Euflexxa may be stored at room temperature or in a refrigerator at 2°-25°C (36°-77°F). Protect from light. Do not freeze. If refrigerated, remove from refrigeration at least 20-30 minutes before use.
