GameChangers: Colchicine Use Post-MI

GameChangers: Colchicine Use Post-MI

In this week’s GameChangers we explore the emerging role of colchicine in the secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Drs. Wall and Boyd discuss colchicine’s anti-inflammatory benefits, the challenges posed by side effects and drug interactions, and the latest research shaping its future in clinical practice.

GameChanger: Colchicine shows potential for secondary prevention in cardiovascular disease due to its anti-inflammatory properties, but its clinical use is limited by gastrointestinal side effects and drug interactions.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners should be able to:
1. Identify the potential benefits of colchicine in secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease based on its anti-inflammatory properties.
2. Discuss the limitations of colchicine use in clinical practice, including gastrointestinal side effects and drug interactions.
