FROM THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF RHEUMATOLOGY CHICAGO - Combined treatment with allopurinol and the novel purine nucleoside phosphorylase inhibitor BCX4208 significantly lowered serum uric acid levels in gout patients who had failed to respond to allopurinol alone, according to findings from a randomized placebo controlled trial involving 278 adults.
Forodesine, a purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP) inhibitor which functions by blocking the T-cell's ability to synthesize DNA, was granted orphan status for treatment of T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, including cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, in February, 2004.
The study, which evaluated the pharmacokinetic profile for this oral formulation, measured BCX-4208 inhibition of the target enzyme purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP), and included detailed safety evaluations of renal and liver function, hematologic parameters, immunological markers, and cardiac function as measured through continuous ECG monitoring, including detailed QTc evaluations.
