Correction to:

Alegría A, Irarrázaval S. Is diacerein an alternative for the treatment of osteoarthritis?. Medwave 2017 Sep-Oct; 17(8):e7041 doi: 10.5867/medwave.2017.08.7041

13/04/2018: Is modified:

In abstract:
We concluded diacerein probably leads to a slight reduction in pain, but would not improve functionality among patients with knee osteoarthritis, and can frequently present diarrhea as an adverse effect.

In Key messages:
Diacerein probably leads to a slight reduction in pain, but it might not improve function in patients with osteoarthritis.

In summary of findings:
Diacerein probably produces a slight decrease in pain in patients with osteoarthritis. The certainty of the evidence is moderate.

Diacerein may not produce improvement in function in patients with osteoarthritis. The certainty of the evidence is low
