Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

This is an exploratory open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the effectiveness of a 16-week high zone tolerance regimen of pegloticase on response to therapy (serum uric acid <6 mg/dL) with this drug in adult hyperuricemic patients with gout refractory to conventional therapy. Eligible subjects will receive 1 of 3 different loading doses (8, 12, and 16 mg) on Study Day 1, and then receive 8 mg on Week 2 and 3, followed by 8 mg every 2 weeks through Week 17 for a total of 10 doses. Subjects will be monitored for efficacy and safety endpoints through Week 17. Subjects will also have blood drawn for pegloticase levels prior to each dose on Weeks 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13,15, and 17. Following Study Week 17, subjects will have an option to continue dosing for an additional 8 weeks. A subset of subjects will participate in additional pharmacokinetic (PK) assessments. The study duration, per enrolled patient, will be approximately 26 weeks including a 2-week screening period, a 16-week treatment period (end of treatment [EOT] visit Week 17), and an optional 8-week dosing extension.
Experimental: Pegloticase regimen <120 kg - Main Study
Subjects weighing <120 kg will receive a tolerizing dose of pegloticase 8 mg IV weekly for the first 3 weeks of dosing followed by an 8 mg IV dose every 2 weeks for a total of 10 doses.
Experimental: Pegloticase regimen ≥120kg
Subjects weighing ≥ 120 kg will be sequentially assigned to 1 of 3 different loading doses (8, 12, and 16 mg) on Study Day 1, and then receive 8 mg on Week 2 and 3, followed by 8 mg every 2 weeks through Week 17 for a total of 10 doses.
Experimental: Pegloticase PK Sub-Study
Subjects weighing <120 kg and ≥120 kg will be assigned to 1 of 2 different loading doses (12 and 16 mg) on Study Day 1, and then receive 8 mg on Week 2 and 3, followed by 8 mg every 2 weeks through Week 17 for a total of 10 doses. Subjects will have multiple blood sampled for PK levels over the 17 week dosing period.
Experimental: Pegloticase Imaging Sub-Study
A subset of subjects participating in the Main Study and weighing <120 kg will have dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) performed at Screen and at Week 17.
Experimental: Pegloticase FDG-PET-CT Sub-Study
A subset of subjects participating in the Main Study and weighing <120 kg will have fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET-CT) to evaluate carotid and aortic (chest) atherosclerosis at Screen and at Week 17.
Experimental: Pegloticase and Azathioprine
Subjects weighing <120 kg will receive azathioprine (AZA) daily for a 2-week run-in period, followed by daily AZA plus pegloticase 8 mg IV every 2 weeks through Week 25 for a total of 13 doses.
Biological: - Pegloticase
Drug: - Azathioprine
Azathioprine (1.25 mg/kg, followed by 2.5 mg/kg) oral, daily
