OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the pharmacodynamics (PDs), pharmacokinetics (PKs) and safety of lesinurad (selective uric acid reabsorption inhibitor) in combination with febuxostat (xanthine oxidase inhibitor) in patients with gout. METHODS: This study was a phase IB, multicentre, open-label, multiple-dose study of gout patients with serum uric acid (sUA) >8 mg/dl following washout of urate-lowering therapy with colchicine flare prophylaxis. Febuxostat 40 or 80 mg/day was administered on days 1-21, lesinurad 400 mg/day was added on days 8-14 and then lesinurad was increased to 600 mg/day on days 15-21. sUA, urine uric acid and PK profiles were evaluated at the end of each week. Safety was assessed by adverse events, laboratory tests and physical examinations. RESULTS: Initial treatment with febuxostat 40 or 80 mg/day monotherapy resulted in 67% and 56% of subjects, respectively, achieving a sUA level
