Design, development and evaluation of diacerein sustained release matrix tablets

This work aims at investigating the use of hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC) polymer to formulate sustained release matrix tablets containing diacerein. The sustained release tablets of diacerein were prepared by wet granulation method using HPMC as a release retarding polymer. Various kinetic models were applied to interpret the release of drug from the matrix system. A complete cross over bioavailability study of...
