Gout is a painful form of arthritis caused by uric acid deposits on joints. These deposits typically cause joints to become red, swollen, and extremely painful. Generally, gout flares last several days, but in certain cases gout can become a chronic condition. The Center for Disease Control estimated that 8.3 million Americans suffered from gout in 2007, and that number is estimated to be rising.
Those who suffer from gout know just how debilitating the pain can be. Current anti-inflammatory medications may help to some extent, but effective medications, specifically designed to treat gout are needed.
If you suffer from gout you may qualify for a research study assessing the safety and efficacy of an investigational treatment for this condition.
Qualified participants will be compensated for time and travel. Study medications and study related care are provided at no cost, without the need for health insurance.
