Savient Pharmaceuticals Announces New Data Surrounding KRYSTEXXA® and the Impact of Refractory Chronic Gout at the American College of Rheumatology Meeting
Date:11/5/2011

  • A retrospective examination of real-world practice habits indicated that there is a disconnect between EU gout treatment guidelines and current practice patterns among rheumatologists and primary care physicians in the United States (U.S.). The analysis found that with the availability of oral conventional urate-lowering therapies (ULTs), 64 percent of rheumatologists' patients and 70 percent of primary care physicians' patients had uric acid levels greater than 6 mg/dL; an indicator that their gout was not adequately controlled. In addition, 37.5 percent of patients in rheumatology practices and 14.2 percent of patients in primary care practices had tophi. These data suggest that patients under the care of rheumatologists had higher disease burden than those under the care of primary care physicians.

  • Results from a survey of 620 gout patients in the U.S. and select EU countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom, showed that patients with higher uric acid levels also reported the presence of tophi and experienced an increased number of gout flares.  Patients with tophi endured a greater disease burden compared to those without the deposits, including: greater overall work productivity loss (40.2 percent vs. 21.2 percent), activity impairment (48.7 percent vs. 37.2 percent), and more physician visits (9.0 vs. 6.5) (p<0.05 for all). Further, gout flares also impacted patients' mental and physical well-being. Patients reported a greater deterioration in their quality of life in correlation with the number of gout flares they experienced, as well as work- and social-related impairment.

  • Information from a U.S. database analysis of 24,503 gout patients underscored the link between gout symptom severity and the physical and economic cost to the patient.  According to the analysis, patients with tophi who experienced greater than or equal to 3 gout flares during the study had significantly more ph
