Glucosamine sulfate is capable of stimulating proteoglycan synthesis, inhibiting the degradation of proteoglycans, and stimulating the regeneration of experimentally induced cartilage damage. Glucosamine is a major component of joint cartilage. Diacerein is a slow-acting drug that may slow the breakdown of cartilage and relieve pain and swelling.
Diacerein is an anthraquinone derivative. Glucosamine is an amino sugar and a prominent precursor in the biochemical synthesis of glycosylated proteins and lipids.

Glucosamine provides natural building blocks for growth, repair and maintenance of cartilage. Glucosamine may lubricate joints, help cartilage retain water and prevent its breakdown. Two mechanisms of action of Diacerein have been validated: in vitro inhibition of interleukin-1 (IL-1) synthesis, the main cytokine involved in cartilage destruction, and activity on the synthesis of proteoglycans, and hyaluronic acid, the principal component of cartilage.
