(Nasdaq: SVNT) announced today the print publication of the Savient-supported longitudinal observational (non-interventional) study of patients with treatment failure gout (TFG).

"The results from the study provides clear evidence that despite today's best practice, treatment failure gout has a significant impact on health-related quality of life and disability. Many everyday activities even walking, are virtually impossible for many of these patients."
