The safety and efficacy of tienilic acid have been evaluated in studies of patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension, salt and water retention states and hyperuricaemia associated with gout. During the course of these studies 675 patients were treated with tienilic acid, 310 were treated with hydrochlorothiazide, 43 were treated with probenecid and 34 were treated with placebo. Overall, adverse reactions characterized as probably drug-related or questinably drug-related were reported in 28% of patients treated with tienilic acid, 24% treated with hydrochlorothiazide, 25% of patients treated with probenecid and 33% treated with placebo. The side effects encountered were mild in severity, reversible and represented extensions of the pharmacological activity of tienilic acid, hydrochlorothiazide and probenecid. These initial studies demonstrate that tienilic acid is safe and effective in the treatment of mild to moderate essential hypertension, salt and water retention states, including oedema associated with congestive cardiac failure or mild to moderate renal dysfunction, and in the management of elevated serum uric acid levels associated with gout.
