The Bone and Joint Research Group is collaborating on a study on the effects of taking an extra medication to prevent acute attacks of gout.
The University of Auckland, in collaboration with the University of Otago Christchurch, is currently conducting a study on the effects of taking an extra medication to prevent acute attacks of gout when commencing allopurinol.
Participants will be asked to fill out a questionnaire about their gout. They will then be provided with a study medication and be asked to have follow-up blood tests.
We are recruiting participants who:
- Live in Auckland
- Are 18 years old or older
