This study aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of formula inhuman subjects with hyperuricemia. The method used was pre and posttest design for 28 days. Safety parameters were assessed by renal function (urea and creatinine) and liver function (SGOT and SGPT). The parameters of efficacy were measured by uric acid change (H0, H14, and H28), improvement of clinical symptoms and quality of life (SF-36). This study showed that kidney and liver function still in the normal rangeafter28 days of intervention. The levels of uric acid showed a significant decrease (p <0.05).
