Acide hyaluronique une molécule primitive: intérêts et emplois en pharmacie d'officine

Abstract : Since the discovery of hyaluronic acid (HA) in 1934, interest in this molecule has continued to increase. It is a polymer formed by the addition of D-glucoronic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. HA has significant potential due to its hygroscopic, viscoelastic, anti-free radical and anti-oxidant properties, but also due to its participation in many cellular processes: inflammation, immune reaction, angiogenesis and healing. It is not simply a primitive molecule but a remarkable molecule in view of its physicochemical properties and the diversity of biological processes it controls. Thus, an in-depth study of HA makes it possible to understand its interest and the solutions it can provide in various pathologies while being part of their therapeutic strategies. As a result, the list of specialties containing HA and the indications in pharmacies have grown considerably over the years, going beyond its initial use in cosmetic products. It is found in various indications encountered on a daily basis, for which the dispensing pharmacist can play a real dispensing role. These indications include dry eyes and vagina, oral lesions, osteoarthritis and wound healing.
