Bottom Line: Based on histopathological and biochemical findings, diacerein treatment showed chondroprotective effect.Furthermore, the chondroprotective effect of diacerein was found to be more pronounced after 12 weeks as compared to 8 weeks in both cases (i.e., post 1 and 2 weeks of iodoacetate injection).Similar results were observed by investigation of chondroitin sulfate during biochemical study, showing the chondroprotective effect.

ABSTRACT
The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of diacerein on the histopathology of articular cartilage and subchondral bone of the femorotibial joint in rats. Osteoarthritis was induced in rats after single intra-articular injection of sodium iodoacetate. Rats were sacrificed 1, 2, 4, and 8 weeks post intra-articular injection to evaluate the progression of histopathogenesis of osteoarthritis. Diacerein was orally administered (15 mg/kg) once daily post 1 and 2 weeks of iodoacetate injection in two groups, respectively, for up to 12 weeks. Articular cartilage and subchondral bone of the rats of both groups were examined after 8 and 12 weeks, respectively. Quantitative histological analyses were performed by scoring these sections as per the OARSI system. Chondroitin sulfate was also estimated in articular cartilage by decrease in absorbance of methylene blue on complexation with chondroitin sulfate using a spectrophotometer. Intra-articular injection of iodoacetate induced loss of articular cartilage with progressive subchondral bone sclerosis and degeneration. Based on histopathological and biochemical findings, diacerein treatment showed chondroprotective effect. Furthermore, the chondroprotective effect of diacerein was found to be more pronounced after 12 weeks as compared to 8 weeks in both cases (i.e., post 1 and 2 weeks of iodoacetate injection). Similar results were observed by investigation of chondroitin sulfate during biochemical study, showing the chondroprotective effect. In conclusion, diacerein exhibits chondroprotective effect in rats with late onset of action.

Effect of treatment of diacerein after post 2 week IA injection.A: Femorotibial joint 2 weeks post IA injection. The articular surface exhibits multifocal denuded cartilage with fissures extending deep into the deep layer. Large numbers of necrotic chondrocytes were seen (black arrow); (Grade 3.5, Stage 3).x200 B-Eight weeks after DC treatment was begun 2 weeks post IA injection. C, D: Twelve weeks after treatment was begun 2 weeks post IA injection. Regeneration of the cartilage is evident by the cell nest (small black arrow) within the articular cartilage. Note, in the subchondral region, the bone regeneration is poor. The hemopoitic tissue is being pushed to the center (*). Few necrotic chondrocytes are seen (down arrow)); (Grade 1.5-1, Stage 2-1). H & E,x400.

Mentions: Diacerein treated rats, when compared with the control rats, had the same degree of OA at 1 and 2 weeks post injection of iodoacetate (Fig. 3 and 4). The femoro-tibial joints exhibited early to moderate levels of OA 1 week post iodoacetate injection (Fig. 3A). Healing was evident by 8 weeks post diacerein treatment and the degree of OA changes regressed at 12 weeks (Fig. 3B and C). Degenerating chondrocytes were not seen in diacereinrats. Similarly, the femorotibial joint, 2 weeks post iodoacetate injection, showed moderate-to-advanced OA and was compared with diacerein treated rats (Fig. 4A). Regeneration of cartilage, as evident by new chondrocyte cell nests and other structure modifications, was evident after diacerein treatment (Fig. 4B, C and D). The degree of regeneration was better at 12 weeks than at 8 weeks. The chondrocyte regeneration was at faster rate than the degeneration, evidenced by pyknotic chondrocytes seen at both 8 and 12 weeks. The chondrocytes exhibited regeneration. Finally, the score values for quantitative histological analyses are summarized in Table 1. Scores for each section were calculated on the basis of individual grading values and staging of respective sections.
