Basic Requirements To Qualify For Our Study
About Our Study
The STAT Research Study is researching an investigational study drug to treat patients with a diagnosis of Gout.
The study will assess the safety and efficacy of a:
- 6-month course of study treatment with 3 different doses of the study drug compared to placebo control in Gout participants with hyperuricemia (elevated uric acid level in the blood), OR
- 12-month course of study treatment of the study drug compared to the normally prescribed treatment in Gout participants with hyperuricemia (elevated uric acid level in the blood). There is a randomized 2.4% chance of recieving a placebo arm in the 12 month study.
