About Gout and Hyperuricemia Research

Gout is a common form of inflammatory arthritis that can be very painful. Symptoms can fluctuate in intensity from flares to relatively no symptoms (remission). Hyperuricemia, or an elevated level of uric acid in the blood, may exist for many years before the first clinical attack of gout. Sustained hyperuricemia is the precursor of gout.

Velocity is seeking participants with high uric acid levels (hyperuricemia) or uncontrolled gout for clinical trials.
