Febuxostat Description

Febuxostat is an anti-gout medicine. Febuxostat has a significant inhibitory effect on both oxidized and reduced XOR.

Febuxostat Applications

Febuxostat is used to lower hyperuricemia (high uric acid in the blood) in patients with gout who have been treated with allopurinol that did not work well or cannot be treated with allopurinol. This medicine is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor. It works by causing less uric acid to be produced by the body.
