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
“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. Learn more about
gout by visiting www.gouteducation.org.
