The article presents the results of the study on the effect of a three-month application of «Theraflex®» in the complex therapy of comorbid pathology - osteoarthritis of the knee joints in combination with coronary heart disease. The positive drug effect on the symptoms of the combined pathology, both gonarthrosis and coronary heart disease, is shown. A conclusion is made about the active influence of «Theraflex®» on the pathogenetic mechanisms of gonarthrosis progression.
