  • 1. National Gout Awareness Day Gensco Laboratories Supports Gout Awareness Day on May 22, 2015 May 22, 2015 (Miami, FL) – National Gout Awareness Day is held every year on May 22. During this day, the Gout & Uric Acid Education Society (GUAES) amplifies its efforts to raise public awareness of gout – an extremely painful form of inflammatory arthritis, which affects more than 8.3 million Americans today. Gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis, yet the vast majority of Americans know almost nothing about it – and just 10 percent of people with gout are getting needed, ongoing treatment. Recognizing an urgent need to raise gout awareness and encourage more sufferers to take steps toward optimal gout manage- ment, the Gout & Uric Acid Education Society (GUAES) has created and offers complimentary resources for both the public and medical professionals on its website. Gensco Laboratories, a pharmaceutical manufacturer of patented drug delivery systems and novel technologies is joining the cause. The Gensco Team is supporting GUAES in helping to raise awareness on May 22, 2015 by taking a few minutes to focus on gout and sharing educational tools and resources through networks and social media pages. “We are proud to be supporters of the Gout & Uric Acid Education Society’s efforts to amplify public awareness of gout,” said Carlos Alfaras, Gensco Laboratories Chief Executive Officer. “The GUAES website has both profession- al and medical resources available online that provide patients and professionals with valuable information in one cohesive location. This information may enhance the patient’s education on gout and add to the information they receive from their medical provider as well.” Even though nine out of 10 gout sufferers say gout has affected their daily lives, one in five isn’t doing anything at all to treat the disease – and only 10 percent of gout sufferers are getting needed treatment.
