Gout is a chronic arthritic condition caused by elevated serum uric acid (sUA) and characterized by intermittent acute flares. 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. The aim of chronic treatment is to reduce the number and severity of acute flares, and damage to the affected joints. Xanthine oxidase inhibitors (XOIs) are the mainstay of chronic gout treatment, with generic allopurinol prescribed extensively. Krystexxa is a highly efficacious biological drug reserved for later lines of therapy. This report provides important insights into how these agents are used in the management of chronic gout and how practices are evolving.
