In this prospective study, the investigators aimed to evaluate the effects of improved hyperuricemia, a minor cardiovascular risk factor, on endothelial dysfunction in patients with chronic kidney disease.
Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is a key event in the development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease observed in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Experimental models have shown that hyperuricemia causes hypertension and renin angiotensin system activation. In this prospective study, the investigators aimed to evaluate the effects of improved hyperuricemia, a minor cardiovascular risk factor, on ED in patients with CKD.

Primary: To compare the efficacy of Rasburicase versus allopurinol in controlling tumor lysis-related hyperuricemia in Chinese patients with leukemia or lymphoma. Secondary: ...
Hyperuricemia is a very common finding in patients with heart failure. It is usually related to diuretic use and deteriorated renal function. The recently evidence showed that uric acid (U...
To evaluate safety and efficacy of BCX4208 alone and in combination with allopurinol in subjects with gout.
This Phase 2 study will be a multicenter, double-blind, randomized, active-comparator study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of tranilast in combination with allopurinol in patients wit...
In this study the efficacy and tolerability of two approaches to treat and prevent hyperuricemia is tested in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia or high-grade lymphoma with high ri...
Hyperuricemia and gout have become increasingly prevalent in China. Allopurinol is an effective urate-lowering therapy, but it has severe side effects. HLA-B*5801 is highly associated with the allopur...
Metabolic syndrome and obesity are linked with hyperuricemia, and it has also been proposed that oxidative stress associated with hyperuricemia may promote benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). However,...
Hyperuricemia induces gout and kidney stones and accelerates the progression of renal and cardiovascular diseases. Adenosine 5'-triphosphate-binding cassette subfamily G member 2 (ABCG2) is a urate tr...
Observational data suggests that hyperuricemia and gout are associated with increased mortality while allopurinol use is associated with reduced mortality. There may also be a dose-dependent protectiv...
As uncontrolled hyperuricemia has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD), management of serum uric acid levels is importan...
Excessive URIC ACID or urate in blood as defined by its solubility in plasma at 37 degrees C; greater than 0.42mmol per liter (7.0mg/dL) in men or 0.36mmol per liter (6.0mg/dL) in women. This condition is caused by overproduction of uric acid or impaired renal clearance. Hyperuricemia can be acquired, drug-induced or genetically determined (LESCH-NYHAN SYNDROME). It is associated with HYPERTENSION and GOUT.
A XANTHINE OXIDASE inhibitor that decreases URIC ACID production. It also acts as an antimetabolite on some simpler organisms.
A thiazole derivative and inhibitor of XANTHINE OXIDASE that is used for the treatment of HYPERURICEMIA in patients with chronic GOUT.
Hereditary metabolic disorder characterized by recurrent acute arthritis, hyperuricemia and deposition of sodium urate in and around the joints, sometimes with formation of uric acid calculi.
A syndrome resulting from cytotoxic therapy, occurring generally in aggressive, rapidly proliferating lymphoproliferative disorders. It is characterized by combinations of hyperuricemia, lactic acidosis, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia and hypocalcemia.
According to the National Arthritis Data Workgroup, an estimated 6 million people in the United States report having experienced gout at some point in their lives. In fact, gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men over the age of 40....
