242. The efficacy and safety of diacerein in the treatment of painful osteoarthritis of the knee: A randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled study with primary end points at two months after the end of a three-month treatment period. (Abstract)

The efficacy and safety of diacerein in the treatment of painful osteoarthritis of the knee: A randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled study with primary end points at two months after the end of a three-month treatment period. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the efficacy of diacerein persists at 2 months after the end of a 3-month treatment period, compared with placebo, in patients with painful knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS: After a 1-week nonsteroidal antiinflammatory (...) was the percent change from baseline in the total WOMAC score, also at month 5 versus placebo. RESULTS: Two hundred three patients were screened, and 168 patients with painful knee OA were randomized. One hundred sixty-five patients were analyzed in an intent-to-treat analysis. At month 5, diacerein showed statistically significant superiority versus placebo as assessed with both the WOMAC A (P < 0.0001) and the total WOMAC (P < 0.0001), demonstrating the carryover effect of the drug.
