NC-2500 is a novel advanced xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR) inhibitor, having potential to reduce the risk of gout flare, one of major issues of current treatments for gout, and make a difference in gout treatment.
In the Phase-1 study, NC-2500 showed favorable urate-lowering properties, that is NC-2500 lowered serum urate levels gradually to the same extent as current XOR inhibitors through 7 days, which could decrease the risk of acute flare in gout patients. Acute flare due to rapid urate reduction is one of the major issues in the initial phase of current therapy, which impairs patients’ quality of life and adherence, frequently resulting in failing sufficient control of serum urate and then worsening the disease. NC-2500 is expected to have potential to resolve these issues by its unique profile of reducing urate to avoid acute flare, with no need of or minimal titration. As for safety, NC-2500 was well-tolerated and adverse events were infrequent, transient, mild, and comparable to placebo. Furthermore, NC-2500 was hardly excreted through the renal pathway, which can be a favorite profile for patients with renal impairment, frequently observed in gout.


NC-2700 is a novel urate transporter 1 (URAT1) inhibitor, enhancing excretion urate to urine. NC-2700 showed not just a potent uricosuric effect, but also pH-raising of the urine with lowered pH in an animal model, which could decrease the risk of renal calculus and nephrotoxicity with urate crystal in the urine, the most common issue with current uricosuric therapy. NC-2700 is now ready to start a phase-1 clinical study.
