Online Gout Study

If you are over the age of 18 and have had a gout attack within the last year
we would like you to participate!

As a participant you will be asked to log on to our website up to 5 times for non-attack questionnaires, as well as any time you have a gout attack.  Each questionnaire will only take about 30 minutes.  All information you provide to us will be kept strictly confidential and will not be released or sold to outside organizations (Privacy/Confidentiality Statement).  Results of the study will be completely anonymous and will not include names or any other identifying information.

This study funded by the National Institutes of Health and American College of Rheumatology Research and Education Foundation, and conducted by the Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health will be conducted entirely over the internet and will involve subjects from all over the United States.  The study will help investigators to identify what factors cause repeated painful gout attacks.
