Benzbromarone is a uricosuric agent and noncompetitive inhibitor of xanthine oxidase used in the treatment of gout, especially when the first line treatment, allopurinol, fails or produces intolerable adverse effects. It is structurally related to the antiarrhythmic amiodarone. Benzbromarone was introduced in the 1970s and was viewed as having few associated serious adverse reactions. It was registered in about 20 countries throughout Asia, South America and Europe. In 2003, the drug was withdrawn by Sanofi-Synthélabo, after reports of serious hepatotoxicity, although it is still marketed in several countries by other. drug companies. The withdrawal has greatly limited its availability around the world and increased difficulty in accessing it in countries where it has never been available. In countries where the drug is still available, it is indicated for the treatment of hyperuricemia with gout. Benzbromarone has also been studied in trials for the treatment of heart failure, hyperuricemia, chronic kidney disease and abnormal renal function.
