  • DESCRIPTION

    Derived from chitin obtained from Arctic shrimp shells, Synoplex® has an approximate molecular weight of 20 to 100 kDa. Each gram of Synoplex® contains 1 gram of poly (acetyl, arginyl) glucosamine. Synoplex® is supplied as a dry soluble powder, that is rehydrated with sterile water prior to use. Synoplex® acts on the bacterial membrane causing aggregation of bacteria and pore formation leading to reduction of viable bacteria and prevention of biofilm formation.

  • OTHER HEALTH INFORMATION

    Poly (acetyl) glucosamine can be characterized as biologically safe, nontoxic, biocompatible and biodegradable polysaccharide. The publicly available toxicology and safety data adequately support the safety of poly (acetyl) glucosamine in terms of general toxicity in animals and in vitro and local tolerance studies. A series of general toxicology tests were also conducted to provide additional assurance that poly (acetyl, arginyl) glucosamine did not show differences from the safety profile of poly (acetyl) glucosamine. The results from these studies in rodents showed no test article-related changes in hematology or clinical chemistry, and no microscopic lesions associated with administration of poly (acetyl, arginyl) glucosamine. in a L5178Y TK +/- mouse lymphoma forward mutation screen, poly (acetyl, arginyl) glucosamine was also negative for induction of mutagenic activity after treatment for 4 hours with and without S9, and for 24 hours without S9.
