    LS Mean Change (95% CI) from Baseline in Flow Mediated Dilatation. The flow mediated dilatation metric is obtained using a device from Cordex, and a proprietary algorithm.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Intensive Uric Acid Lowering With Verinurad and Febuxostat in Patients With Albuminuria
Official Title  ICMJE Effects of Intensive Uric Acid Lowering Therapy With RDEA3170 (Verinurad) and Febuxostat in Patients With Albuminuria
Brief Summary The purpose of this clinical research study is to evaluate signals of potential clinical benefit of the combination of Verinurad and Febuxostat in lowering concentrations of circulating uric acid and thus improving kidney or cardiovascular status of patients with hyperuricemia, albuminuria, and Type 2 diabetes (T2DM).
Detailed Description

Evidence shows independent associations between elevated serum uric acid (sUA) and the risk of hypertension, myocardial infarction (MI), chronic kidney disease (CKD), T2DM, heart failure (HF), and metabolic syndrome, including obesity. Gout is associated with an increased risk of all-cause death, as well as cardiovascular death. The causal relationship between elevated sUA, gout, and these disease outcomes remains to be proven.

Verinurad (RDEA3170), is a novel Urate Transporter 1 (URAT1) inhibitor in Phase II development. Verinurad combined with the xanthine oxidase (XO) inhibitor febuxostat has been shown to lower sUA in patients with recurrent gout in Phase II studies by >80%. The extensive lowering of sUA delivered by the combination presents a unique opportunity to explore whether intensive urate lowering therapy can improve kidney and/or cardiac health.

This study will assess if intensive serum urate lowering therapy, more potent than ever explored before in the chronic out-patient setting, can improve chronic kidney or cardiac function in the study population.

In order to maximize the scientific value of the study and minimize the risk for systemic biases a parallel group, double blind, randomized design will be utilized.

The study will recruit patients with hyperuricemia and presenting with albuminuria.

Hyperuricemic patients are expected to benefit more from urate lowering, and albuminuria at baseline is required, as the primary objective of the study will be to assess changes in albuminuria.

Patients are also required to be diagnosed with T2DM. Patients with T2DM frequently exhibit changes in cardiac function detectable using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that represents an early, pre-symptomatic state of HF. By limiting recruitment to patients with T2DM and by performing MRI at baseline and 6 months of therapy, the study will deliver insights into whether or not intensive urate lowering therapy can positively affect not only chronic kidney disease, but also cardiac disease.
