Abstract
Gout is a clinical syndrome in which tissue damage is induced by a chronic metabolic disorder associated with increased concentrations of uric acid in the blood. The study investigated the hypouricemic effects of anthocyanin extracts from purple sweet potato (APSP), and allopurinol, on serum uric acid levels in hyperuricemic mice. It was found that administration of a single oral dose of 100mg/kg APSP to such animals reduced the serum uric acid concentration to 4.10±0.04mg/dL, compared with a concentration of 10.25±0.63mg/dL in the hyperuricemic control group.
