WASHINGTON — At the American College of Rheumatology Annual Meeting, Kenneth G. Saag, MD, professor of medicine in the Division of Clinical Immunology and Rheumatology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, discussed the CLEAR 1 and 2 extension studies of lesinurad and allopurinol combination therapy in patients with gout.

He mentioned the extension data were similar to those of the original study, which demonstrated good efficacy and safety. However, there was a slight rise in serum creatinine levels for some patients.
