What is Colchicine

Colchicine has a strong anti-inflammatory effect and is widely used for gout, especially in acute attacks (a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints with periodic attacks of acute pain, associated with the deposition of uric acid salts that crystallise in the tissues and cause joint damage in gout).

The drug inhibits the formation of leukotriene B4. It reduces the migration of leukocytes to the inflamed area, inhibits phagocytosis of uric acid microcrystals and prevents their deposition in tissues.

Indications for use of Colchicine

In addition to the treatment of acute attacks of gout, it is also used for the prevention of recurrences of acute attacks of gout, especially in the first 2 years after starting treatment with hippuric agents.

It is also used in:

  • Systemic scleroderma (autoimmune disease of connective tissue, with characteristic skin, vascular, musculoskeletal and internal organ involvement, based on microcirculatory disturbances, inflammation and generalised fibrosis);
  • Amyloidosis (a disease associated with the deposition of amyloid proteins in tissues and organs, followed by tissue necrosis);
  • Behçet’s disease (chronic recurrent multisystemic vasculitis with mucosal inflammation);
  • Familial Mediterranean fever (hereditary disease characterised by fever and occasional abdominal pain or occurrence of chest and joint pain or rash).
  • chondrocalcinosis (a disease in which changes in the joints gradually develop due to deposits of potassium pyrophosphate salts in the articular cartilage).
  • Phlebitis (inflammatory disease of venous vessels, acute or chronic);
  • Inflammatory diseases in dentistry.
