How does HYLACH® work?
HYLACH® is a natural biopolymeric molecule composed by a hyaluronic acid chain conjugated with lactose derivative residues. The lactose-functionalized hyaluronic acid assures an interaction with Galectin-3 thanks to the presence of β-galactose residues. This maximizes the subtraction of Galectin-3 from the extracellular environment modulating as a consequence the fibrotic process. A dispersion of HYLACH® can not only interfere with the Galectin-3 action, but also interferes as a consequence on profibrotic/proinflammatory cytokines, as TGF-β.
The polymeric structure of hyaluronic acid allows secondary performances of HYLACH® such as hydration, anti-inflammation properties and cellular internalization.
