Publication date: Available online 19 April 2019Source: Journal of Molecular StructureAuthor(s): Peter Nattaniel NelsonAbstractThe hydration behaviour of calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) was investigated via Density Functional Quantum mechanical calculations (DFT), carried out on isolated monomeric CPP-water complexes. Formation free energies for the first hydration shell shows that hydrates from the di- to octa-hydrate are formed spontaneously whereas the higher hydrates are unstable when hydration occurs via a concerted mechanism (instantaneous hydration). For mechanism, the most stable hydrate consist of four water molecules...

Abstract Background/Aims: The safety and efficacy of febuxostat in patients with stage 4-5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) are still unclear owing to a lack of studies in these patients. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the effect of febuxostat on renal function, general safety, and efficacy in gout patients with stage 4-5 CKD. Methods: Among 739 patients who had been administered febuxostat from May 2012 to December 2016 at a single hospital in Korea, 370 patients who had been monitored for 1 year were analyzed. Serum uric acid levels and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of patients with gouty arthrit...

ConclusionsDietary n ‐3 PUFA‐rich fish consumption, when adjusted for total purine intake, was associated with lower risk of recurrent gout flares, whereas n‐3 PUFA supplementation alone, as taken in a self‐directed manner, was not. Consumption of specific sources and adequate doses of n‐3 PUFA for gout flare prevention warrants further study in an adequately powered clinical trial.This article is protected by copyright.
