*Purpose: To assess the efficacy and safety of febuxostat in the treatment of hyperuricemia in renal transplant recipients.
*Methods: A total number of 124 renal transplant patients with hyperuricemia who were prescribed febuxostat between June 2016 and July 2018 were retrospectively analyzed. The initial dose of febuxostat was 10-40 mg/d depending on serum uric acid level and body weight. The uric acid (UA), liver function and renal function parameters before and 3 months after febuxostat treatment was compared. Adverse events and patient and renal allograft survival were recorded throughout the follow-up period.
*Results: Serum uric acid was significantly decreased after three months of febuxostat treatment from 501.21 ± 71.7 μmol/L to 374.7 ± 94.5 μmol/L (Table 1, p<0.001). 82 out of 124 patients (66.1%) reached to normal UA level at month 3 after febuxostat treatment. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was maintained (54.4 ± 15.4 vs 55.8 ± 16.2 mL/min/1.73m2, p =0.074). No severe adverse event was observed. All patients and renal grafts survived during the follow-up period.
|Before treatment||3 months after treatment||P-value|
|Serum uric acid(μmol/L)||501.21 ± 71.7||374.7 ± 94.5||<0.001|
|Serum creatinine(μmol/L)||127.7 ± 36.9||126.7 ± 39.8||0.063|
|eGFR(ml/min/1.73m2)||54.4 ± 15.4||55.8 ± 16.2||0.074|
|WBC(109/L)||8.0 ± 2.6||7.3 ± 2.3||<0.05|
|Hb(g/L)||121.6 ± 19.8||131.6 ± 17.6||<0.001|
*Conclusions: Febuxostat is effective and safe in the treatment of hyperuricemia in renal transplant recipients.
