In this study, the toxicity of mPEG-UHC was studied in rats and monkeys over a 26-week period of repeated intravenous dosing. There were no obvious toxic reactions in the tested animals, with the exception of mPEG-UHC blood clearance and immunogenicity. After repeated injections of mPEG-UHC, rapid loss of uricolytic activity (RLA) was not detected in rats, whereas RLA was observed in 44.4% of drug-treated monkeys. In these monkeys, RLA was observed in 11.1% of males and 77.8% of females, and such incidences increased with higher dosing. High titres of anti-uricase IgG antibodies were associated with RLA but did not result ...

In 1975, researchers from Yale investigated an epidemic of 51 patients with arthritis who lived near the woodsy town of Lyme, Connecticut. The most common symptom was recurrent attacks of knee swelling. A few had pain in other joints, such as the wrist or ankle. Many had fever, fatigue, and headache. Some remembered a round skin rash before the onset of knee swelling. We now know that Lyme disease is an infection acquired from tick bites, caused by a spiral bacterium named Borrelia burgdorferi. After a tick bite, Borrelia bacteria wriggle through the skin away from the bite site. This leads to a circular red rash, known as...

We examined the association between heart disease (ischemic heart disease and heart failure) and the risk of hospital admission for severe cutaneous adverse reactions, adjusting for known and purported risk factors. We also evaluated the joint effects of combined clinical and demographic risk factors. RESULTS: Among 130 325 allopurinol initiators, 109 hospital admissions occurred for allopurinol-associated severe cutaneous adverse reactions. The multivariable relative risk among those with heart disease was 1.55 (95% confidence interval 1.01-2.37). Patients with heart disease and chronic kidney disease who were started...

Rationale: The pathology of gouty arthritis and reactive arthritis (ReA) partially overlaps, and both diseases are characterized by the production of inflammatory cytokines associated with the activation of monocytes and macrophages. However, the precise cytokine profile of cases with a coexistence of both diseases is unknown, and there are few reports on the course of treatment in patients with both gouty arthritis and ReA. Patient concerns: A 39-year-old man with a recurrent episode of gouty arthritis presented prednisolone-resistant polyarthritis with high level of C-reactive protein (CRP). He had the features of g...

Lithium has been used for medical use since the 1840s in treatment of “brain gout.” It was first prescribed for mania in 1871 by William Hammond. It is one of the oldest psychotropic medications still used to treat patients with bipolar disorder. The purpose of this talk is to provide an overview of the use of lithium in children and adolescents with bipolar disor der, with the focus on a larger trial involving the comparison of lithium and divalproex (LvD).
