Latest gout Stories
New research shows that use of poor footwear is common among patients with gout.
As an alternative to a conventional treatment for gout that some patients may not respond to, patients with severe, chronic gout who received the medication pegloticase for 6 months had greater improvement in measures of uric acid levels as well as physical function and quality of life.
Injections of pegloticase, a modified porcine enzyme, can produce significant and sustained clinical improvements in 2 out of 5 patients with chronic gout that is resistant to conventional therapies.
