Study of Tranilast Alone or in Combination With Febuxostat in Patients With Hyperuricemia
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Crossover, Pharmacodynamic and Pharmacokinetic Drug Interaction Study of Tranilast in Combination With Febuxostat Compared With Tranilast Alone and Febuxostat Alone in Healthy Subjects With Hyperuricemia
This is a randomized, double-blind, 3-period crossover phase 2 study in patients with documented hyperuricemia to evaluate the effect of tranilast on febuxostat pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) and to evaluate the effect of febuxostat on tranilast PK and PD as measured by reduction in serum uric acid levels.
