What is your poster about?
The poster summarizes the first clinical study of ABP-671 in the treatment of gout. Gout patients received different doses of ABP-671 or placebo, given either once daily or split into bid dosing over a one-month period. The dose was increased from 2 mg to 4 mg to 8 mg total daily dose sequential groups.
Why did you decide to investigate this topic?
There is a clear need for better uric acid-lowering therapy for gout patients, and pre-clinical studies confirmed that ABP-671 was both safe and effective at uric acid lowering.
What are you working on next related to this research?
Plans are being finalized for a larger phase 2b study where gout patients will receive different doses of ABP-671, allopurinol, or placebo over a six-month period. This will be followed by confirmatory placebo-controlled phase 3 studies.
What excites you most about your work?
Current gout therapy is limited, with no truly satisfactory treatment. ABP-671 appears to have the potential to become a broadly effective and safe treatment for gout patients.
