Selective Urate Reabsorption Inhibitor
Chronic Kidney Disease
Preventing Early Renal Loss in Diabetes
American College of Rheumatology
Hyperuricemia is a clinical important problem and its prevalence has been increased. Latest topics are described. The guideline adequately managing gout was published from American College of Rheumatology (ACR). Various optimal uses of urate-lowering therapy (ULT) were presented. The cardiorenal effects of hyperuricemia have been investigated for years. Regarding the patients on chronic kidney disease (CKD) and high risk of progression, ULT with allopurinol did not show the decline in eGFR compared to the control. Recently, dotinurad that is a new selective urate reabsorption inhibitor (SURI) would be applied to medical practice. Low-dose dotinurad showed satisfactory pharmacological efficacy.
