Molecular Formula : C16H16N2O3S
Molecular Weight : 316.37
CAS Registry Number : 144060-53-7
Febuxostat is an orally available, non-purine inhibitor of xanthine oxidase with uric acerbic blurred activity. Aloft articulate administration, febuxostat selectively and noncompetitively inhibits the action of xanthine oxidase, an agitator that converts oxypurines, including hypoxanthine and xanthine, into uric acid. By inhibiting xanthine oxidase, uric acerbic assembly is bargain and serum uric acerbic levels are lowered. Febuxostat may accommodate aegis adjoin astute renal abortion acquired by the boundless absolution of uric acerbic that occurs aloft massive bump corpuscle lysis consistent from the analysis of some malignancies.
