Legend Multi Dose Injectable Solution contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in skin, connective tissue, and a few other locations. Hyaluronic acid is also found in the synovial fluid of joints in high concentrations, where it regulates cellular constituents, decreases the impact of enzyme release and exudation and helps prevent joint degradation. Hyaluronic acid may also work to reduce inflammation.
