Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Two weeks after taking a total of 8mg of colchicine over 24 hrs for acute gout, subject who is otherwise very healthy developed herpes zoster in left T4 posterior primary ramus distribution. It is postulated that colchicine may affect the mechanism of transport and immune control of the virus in the nerve axon.
