Gout | Treatment Algorithms | Claims Data Analysis | US | 2017

Gout is a chronic condition characterized by intermittent acute flares caused by elevated serum uric acid ( sUA ). Treatment of the painful acute flares is distinct from the chronic management of hyperuricemia with urate-lowering therapies and is not considered in this study. Xanthine oxidase inhibitors ( XOI s) are the mainstay of chronic gout treatment, with generic allopurinol prescribed much more extensively than the brands Uloric and Zurampic. Gout Treatment Algorithms presents urate-lowering therapy prescribing patterns and provides insights into the uptake of novel branded agents against the background of generic allopurinol dominance.
