Research Progress Related to Gout
Over the last several decades, research has greatly increased our understanding of the immune system, genetics, and biology. The NIAMS continues to support researchers studying ways to better manage gout and its symptoms including:
- Studying the biology of the joints to help understand how gout develops and recurs.
- Researching how genetics and environmental factors can lead to gout.
- Determining which medications and dosages are the most effective.
- Researching potential new therapies.
- Studying new tools to diagnose gout.
- Studying which cells are involved in gout attacks.
- Studying how diet can prevent gout flares and affect symptoms.
