Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess the tolerability of pegloticase administered with a shorter infusion duration in participants with uncontrolled gout receiving methotrexate.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Uncontrolled Gout Gout Uncontrolled Gout Biological: Pegloticase with MTX Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Approximately 30-50 participants will be enrolled. After a 4-week methotrexate run-in period, participants will be treated for up to 24 weeks with weekly oral methotrexate and biweekly 8mg pegloticase infusions. Up to three pegloticase infusion durations will be assessed in the study: 60-minute infusion, 45-minute infusion and 30-minute infusion. Safety evaluations will be performed regularly throughout the course of the study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence of participants experiencing Infusion Reactions (IRs), including anaphylaxis related to pegloticase [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Week 24. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of participants who experienced any of the following events: infusion reaction leading to discontinuation of treatment, anaphylaxis, or meeting Individual participant sUA Discontinuation Criteria [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 24 ]
    A participant meets the Individual participant sUA Discontinuation Criteria if he or she has a pre-infusion sUA level >6 mg/dL at 2 consecutive study visits beginning with the Week 2 Visit. When this occurs, the participants must discontinue treatment, with the option to continue on the study.

  2. Time to any of the following events: infusion reaction leading to discontinuation of treatment, anaphylaxis, or meeting Individual participant sUA Discontinuation Criteria [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 24 ]
    A participant meets the Individual participant sUA Discontinuation Criteria if he or she has a pre-infusion sUA level >6 mg/dL at 2 consecutive study visits beginning with the Week 2 Visit. When this occurs, the participants must discontinue treatment, with the option to continue on the study.

  3. Proportion of participants who experienced infusion reaction leading to slowing down of the infusion rate or discontinuation of treatment [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 24 ]
  4. Time to first infusion reaction leading to slowing down of the infusion rate or discontinuation of treatment [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 24 ]
  5. Time to first infusion reaction [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 24 ]
  6. Proportion of participants who were able to complete all infusions over the assigned treatment duration length or a lesser time, without clinically requiring an increased infusion time [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 24 ]
  7. Proportion of infusions completed over the assigned duration length or a lesser time, without clinically requiring an increased infusion time [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 24 ]
