Clinical Trial 12489

Brooksville, FL 34601

Study Summary:

Take control of your gout. Whether your gout is currently on the attack or in hiding, now is the time to act!

Are you worried about the swelling and burning pain of your next gout attack? If so, it’s time to feel better and to stop the attacks from happening. If you’re ready to take control of your gout, it’s time to take action.

This clinical research study is investigating the safety and effectiveness of the approved gout medication allopurinol. If you are currently taking allopurinol but continue to suffer gout attacks, this may mean your treatment is not adequately lowering your uric acid – the cause of gout. If you’re not taking allopurinol, optimized treatment with this medication over time may help to eliminate or reduce the frequency of gout attacks. This global study seeks to explore how treatment with allopurinol can be optimized to reduce the burden gout creates in your day-to-day life. The results of this study will help doctors to better understand how to use allopurinol most effectively in patients with gout.

Qualified Participants Must:

• Be 18-85 years of age
• Have a diagnosis of gout
• Have had at least 2 gout attacks in the past year
• Be willing to take treatment daily to prevent gout attacks

Qualified Participants May Receive:

The study doctor will see you monthly over 6 months to optimize your treatment, with the goal of reducing your gout attacks. There's no cost for participation. Those who qualify will receive study-related medical evaluations and will be reimbursed for daily allopurinol.
