An expert panel, recruited by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, recently published a summary combining evidence and expert opinion, which suggested that colchicine is a good prophylactic therapy and that uric acid lowering drugs (allopurinol, probenecid, and sulfinpyrazone) are effective in decreasing attack frequency in those with more than 2 attacks per year.
Most cephalosporins are extensively eliminated by renal tubular secretion, a process that is inhibited by probenecid.

Better efficacy and safety profiles of these drugs over generics such as non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAID), corticosteroids, allopurinol and probenecid create a remarkable scope for gout therapeutics in the future.
In situ single pass intestinal perfusion was used to investigate the absorption sites of three constituents in the small intestine, as well as the influence of drug concentrations, concentrations of P-gp inhibitor verapamil hydrochloride, concentrations of MRP2 inhibitor probenecid, and concentrations of energy inhibitor 2,4-dinitrophenol, in order to discuss the absorption mechanism of the constituents and influent factors (5).
However, in remote areas of the Northern Territory (Figure 1) and Western Australia, where rates of infection among Aboriginal populations are high and AMR is low, first-line treatment is oral amoxicillin 3 g, probenecid 1 g, and azithromycin 1 g (locally known as a ZAP pack), a treatment strategy that has the benefits of oral administration and avoidance of the unnecessary use of ceftriaxone.
16],[17],[27 Interestingly, this complementary vasoconstrictor mechanism is only coupled to a1-adrenoceptor activation while the response to serotonin or endothelin-1 is not affected by typical Panx1 channel blockers such as the Panx1 mimetic peptide [10] Panx and probenecid, which was confirmed in the SMC Panx1-deficient mice.
