We wish to assess a new intervention aimed at reducing the serum uric acid levels in patients with gout. To do this a randomized control trial is to be the conducted, where patients are randomized to either the new intervention or the control arm, which receives standard care. At the initial planning stage, the chief investigator stated that it will be feasible to recruit 100 patients in total for the study (50 in each arm).
