6. Cardiovascular Safety of Febuxostat or Allopurinol in Patients with Gout.

Cardiovascular Safety of Febuxostat or Allopurinol in Patients with Gout. Background Cardiovascular risk is increased in patients with gout. We compared cardiovascular outcomes associated with febuxostat, a nonpurine xanthine oxidase inhibitor, with those associated with allopurinol, a purine base analogue xanthine oxidase inhibitor, in patients with gout and cardiovascular disease. Methods We conducted a multicenter, double-blind, noninferiority trial involving patients with gout (...) and cardiovascular disease; patients were randomly assigned to receive febuxostat or allopurinol and were stratified according to kidney function. The trial had a prespecified noninferiority margin of 1.3 for the hazard ratio for the primary end point (a composite of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, or unstable angina with urgent revascularization). Results In total, 6190 patients underwent randomization, received febuxostat or allopurinol, and were followed for a median
