BACKGROUND Excess body burden of uric acid promotes gout. Diminished renal clearance of uric acid causes hyperuricemia in most patients with gout, and the renal urate transporter (URAT)1 is important for regulation of serum uric acid (sUA) levels. The URAT1 inhibitors probenecid and benzbromarone are used as gout therapies; however, their use is limited by(More)
The RAS-RAF-mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) kinase (MEK)-ERK pathway provides numerous opportunities for targeted oncology therapeutics. In particular, the MEK enzyme is attractive due to high selectivity for its target ERK and the central role that activated ERK plays in driving cell proliferation. The(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of BAY 86-9766, a selective, potent, orally available, small-molecule allosteric inhibitor of mitogen-activated protein kinase 1/2 in patients with advanced solid tumors. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN BAY 86-9766 was administered orally daily in 28-day courses, with doses escalated to establish(More)
Lesinurad is a selective uric acid reabsorption inhibitor under investigation for the treatment of gout. Single and multiple ascending dose studies were conducted to evaluate pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and safety of lesinurad in healthy males. Lesinurad was administered as an oral solution between 5 mg and 600 mg (single ascending dose; N=34) and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Lesinurad is a selective uric acid reabsorption inhibitor (SURI) under investigation for the treatment of gout. This study elucidated the interaction of lesinurad with major liver and kidney transporters in vitro and evaluated the drug-drug interactions (DDIs) of lesinurad and atorvastatin, metformin, and furosemide in clinical(More)
Erratum to: Lesinurad, a novel, oral compound for gout, acts to decrease serum uric acid through inhibition of urate transporters in the kidney 1 Erratum Unfortunately, after publication of this article [1], it was noticed that the name of Jeffrey N. Miner was captured incorrectly during the production process. The middle initial 'N' was missing from the(More)
