Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Gout is a common disease and the prevalence is increasing. Chronic hyperuricemia (uric acid serum levels >6.8 mg/dL) is a key feature. Treating to a target uric acid level of 6.0 mg/dL is recommended. In addition to cochicine, probenecid, and allopurinol, feboxostat is a new option for urate-lowering therapy.
