Abstract

The clinical efficacy and safety of thermal mud and diacetylrhein (DAR) was evaluated in 135 patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip and e knee. Pain at rest, during movement, on pressure, and functional impairment of the affected joints were evaluated in base-line conditions and after six months and twelve months of treatment. These clinical parameters showed a significant improvement after thermal mud and DAR; tolerance of both treatments was excellent in all patients.
