dence of gout. Researchers have recently made great advances in dening the pathogenesis of gout, including elucidating its risk factors and tracing the molecular mechanisms of renal urate transport and crystalinduced inammation.
This article reviews key aspects of the pathogenesis of gout with a focus on the recent advances. Colchicine is an alkaloid obtained from the autumn crocus or meadow saffron. It is not an analgesic in true sense because it relieves only one type of pain, namely that associated with an acute attack of gout. It acts probably by inhibiting the actions of inflammatory cells in gouty tissue. Gout is a common disease which is caused by the buildup of uric acid in the joints, tissue deposition of uric acid crystals, and could cause joint destruction if left untreated.
Uric acid is a byproduct of purine metabolism. Gout is such an important topic and area of concern because, according to estimates, between 100, 000 and 300, 000 gout patients in the United States do not achieve adequate control of hyperuricemia or goutrelated symptoms (Zychowicz, Pope, & Graser, 2010).

In the fall of 1979, the first class of Thesis Submitted to AUT University in fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Philosophy 2011 Firstly I would like to thank Professor Keith Rome for acting as my primary supervisor for this Gout is on the increase worldwide and is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis affecting men (Arromdee, Michet, PubMed publications for gout increased 3fold from 181 in 2000 to 552 in 2012 indicating an increased interest in gout.
How should the future gout research be prioritized? There is an evolution in thinking how to set the future research agenda.
