Ichon™ is a preparation of polysulfated glycosaminoglycan (PSGAG) extracted from bovine tracheal cartilage. It has the same active ingredient as Adequan although uses a different vehicle. Unlike Adequan which is produced commercially in the United States (by Luitpold) under direct FDA supervision, Ichon is produced in China without FDA regulation.
"Chondroprotec" is a similar product manufactured by Triple Crown.
Both Ichon and Chondroprotec are labeled for topical use in wounds/ incisions, simply because Luitpold has obtained the patent for the intraarticular use of PSGAGs. Ichon and Chondroprotec, therefore, are considered "medical devices", which do not technically achieve their purposes through chemical action within or on the body (which would make them "medicines").
