- “BCX4208, A Novel Enzyme Inhibitor for Chronic Management of Gout Shows a Low Risk of Potential Drug-Drug Interactions” concludes that BCX4208 undergoes renal elimination, is not metabolized by liver cells and does not induce, or inhibit, CYP isoforms or common drug transporters. Therefore, BCX4208 should have a low risk of drug-drug interactions with medications commonly prescribed to patients with gout. (Poster FRI0401)
- “Long-term Safety of BCX4208 Added to Allopurinol in the Chronic Management of Gout: Results of a Phase 2 24-week Blinded Safety Extension and Vaccine Challenge Study” concludes that BCX4208 was safe and generally well-tolerated when added to allopurinol. Patients showed no signal for infections and generated a healthy immune response to vaccination. No differences were seen in the rate or severity of adverse events or infections across all treatment groups. (Poster FRI0380)
- “BCX4208 Added to Allopurinol Increases Response Rates in Patients with Gout who Fail to Reach Goal Range Serum Uric Acid on Allopurinol Alone: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial” concludes that BCX4208 plus allopurinol doubled the proportion of patients achieving goal of sUA <6 mg/dL compared to allopurinol alone. In a patient subgroup whose baseline sUA was >6.5 mg/dL, a more than 4-fold increase in response was observed when BCX4208 was added to allopurinol compared to allopurinol alone. (Poster FRI0367)
