Do You Have Gout?

Gout is a form of arthritis that can cause a sudden attack of burning pain, stiffness and swelling in a joint, usually a big toe. You can also get gout attacks in your foot, ankle or knees. The attacks can last a few days or many weeks before the pain goes away. These attacks can happen again and again. Over time, they can harm your joints, tendons and other tissues.

Deaconess Clinic physicians are participating in a national research study to evaluate an investigational extended-release medication for gout.

To qualify for the study, you must be age 18 or older and have had one or more gout flare-ups in the past year. Qualified participants will receive study-related medical care and study medications at no cost and may receive compensation for time and travel.

If you are interested in learning more about this study, please call the Deaconess Research Info-Line at 812-474-7184 or toll free 877-654-0311.

Research Physicians: Dr. Michelle Galen, Dr. Jancy Pottanat and Dr. Dusten Wessel.
