Gout and Uloric Injuries

Gout is a form of arthritis, commonly occurring in the feet and toes, which results from elevated uric acid levels in the bloodstream. This elevated level of uric acid in the body can lead to sudden, severe attacks of pain, swelling, and tenderness in the joints.

Uloric blocks the metabolic processes in the body that create uric acid, therefore relieving pain and inflammation in the joints.

Deadly Findings of Uloric

Uloric is manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals and hit the market as soon as it gained FDA approval in February 2009. After approval, the FDA required Takeda to conduct a post market safety clinical trial due to unanswered questions and continued cardiovascular concerns.

The preliminary results of the 6,000-patient study were published on March 2018 in The New England Journal of Medicine. The results concluded Uloric posed a significantly increased risk of cardiovascular-related death, heart attacks, and strokes compared to users of allopurinol.
