Colchicine has been used as an anti-inflammatory medication for centuries. The plant source of colchicine, the autumn crocus, was indeed used in Ancient Egypt as a treatment for rheumatism and swelling.
Currently, colchicine is indicated for treatment of inflammatory conditions such as gout, pericarditis, and Mediterranean fever. Based on a few recent studies, its use will likely be expanded to treat an even more common and serious inflammatory condition; cardiovascular disease.
During this podcast, we will go over the evidence supporting the use of low dose, daily colchicine in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
