Proportion of patients achieving an sUA reduction of ≥ 2.0, ≥ 3.0, and ≥ 4.0 mg/dL from baseline on Day 22 after treatment with arhalofenate 800 mg and febuxostat 40 mg, and with arhalofenate 600 mg and febuxostat 80 mg

Absolute and percent reduction in sUA from baseline on Day 22 after treatment with arhalofenate 800 mg and febuxostat 40 mg, and with arhalofenate 600 mg and febuxostat 80 mg

Proportion of patients achieving a target sUA < 6.0, < 5.0, < 4.0, and < 3.0 mg/dL after monotherapy treatment with arhalofenate 600 or 800 mg, or febuxostat 40 or 80 mg

Proportion of patients achieving an sUA reduction of ≥ 2.0, ≥ 3.0, and ≥ 4.0 mg/dL from baseline after monotherapy treatment with arhalofenate 600 or 800 mg, or febuxostat 40 or 80 mg

Absolute and percent reduction in sUA from baseline on Day 15 after monotherapy treatment with arhalofenate 600 or 800 mg

Kel and T1/2 of arhalofenate 800 mg and febuxostat 80 mg, if possible, when administered separately and in combination

Detailed description: Patients entering the six-week Treatment Period will receive once daily oral dosing of arhalofenate during Weeks 1 and 2 (Days 1 through 14), combined once daily oral dosing of arhalofenate and febuxostat during Weeks 3 and 4 (Days 15 through 28), and once daily oral dosing of febuxostat during Weeks 5 and 6 (Days 29 through 42). In addition, all patients will receive once daily oral dosing of colchicine throughout the Treatment Period.

- A female patient must be surgically sterile or post-menopausal (at least 45 years

of age with no history of menses for at least two years), or must agree to use two medically accepted methods of contraception including a barrier method for the entire duration of study participation unless she reports compete sexual abstinence.

not clinically significant

- ECG must be normal, or if abnormal, considered not clinically significant

- A patient who is taking a medication or agent (other than a ULT) known to influence

sUA levels must be on a stable dose and regimen of the medication for at least two weeks prior to screening and must be willing to continue the same dose and regimen during study participation

- Expected to be able to tolerate a short course of oral NSAIDs and/or oral steroids as

may be needed to treat a gout flare

- Must be able to swallow tablets

Exclusion Criteria:

- Treatment with any ULT (e. g., allopurinol, febuxostat, probenecid, or benzbromarone)

or organ transplant)

- Known infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or history of hepatitis B

or C

- Recent use/abuse of an illicit drug as determined by a positive urine drug screen

- Uncontrolled hypertension that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would preclude

participation in the study

heart failure (NYHA class II - IV), angina pectoris, coronary intervention procedure,

lower extremity bypass procedure, systemic or intracoronary fibrinolytic therapy within 5 years of screening

- History of cancer within five years of screening, with the following exceptions:

adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer, non-metastatic prostate cancer, or in situ cervical cancer

- Body mass index (BMI) > 42 kg/m2

inhibitors, cytotoxic agents (including azathioprine, mercaptopurine, cyclosporine, cyclophosphamide, etc.), ranolazine, digoxin, theophylline, sulphonylureas, thiazolidinediones (e. g., rosiglitazone or pioglitazone), desipramine, atypical antipsychotic agents, loop diuretics, warfarin, or phenytoin

- Chronic treatment with NSAIDs that cannot be safely discontinued-term use of NSAIDs

is permitted, e. g., when used to treat gout flares

- Known hypersensitivity or intolerance to febuxostat or colchicine

- Treatment with any other investigational therapy within 30 days or within five

half-lives, whichever is longer prior to Day 1

- Any other condition that would compromise the safety of the patient, prevent

compliance with the study protocol, or compromise the quality of the clinical study, as judged by the Investigator and/or Medical Monitor
