Several studies have reported thatPA-3 reduces the level of serum uric acid (SUA) in patients with hyperuricemia. However, it remains unknown how PA-3 affects uric acid metabolism. In the present study, we examined effects of PA-3-containing yoghurt on uric acid metabolism in patients with marginal hyperuricemia. Sixteen patients with SUA>357 μmol/L (marginal hyperuricemia) were enrolled. PA-3-containing yoghurt was administered for 8 weeks. Uric acid metabolism was evaluated just before and 8 weeks after the administration and at 4 weeks after the administration ended (post-administration). SUA levels after the administrationwere significantly lower than that before the administration and remained low at post-administration. Urinary uric acid concentration (Uur) after the administration were significantly lower than that before the administration. However, post-administration Uur levels were comparable to those before the administration. Therefore, PA-3-containing yoghurt significantly reduced the levels of SUA and Uur in patients with marginal hyperuricemia.
