The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the relative bioavailability of a single dose of Colcrys (colchicine) 0.6 mg when administered to a group of young , healthy subjects 18-30 years of age compared to a group of older, generally healthy subjects 60 years of age or older following an overnight fast.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the relative bioavailability of a single dose of Colcrys (colchicine) 0.6 mg when administered to a group of young, healthy subjects 18-30 years of age compared to a group of older, generally healthy subjects 60 years of age or older following an overnight fast. On study Day 1 following an overnight fast, twenty healthy, non-smoking, non-obese male and female subjects between the ages of 18 and 30 and twenty generally healthy, non-smoking, non-obese male and female subjects over 60 years of age will be administered one single dose of Colcrys (1 x 0.6 mg tablet). Fasting will continue for 4 hours after the dose. Blood samples will be drawn from all participants before dosing and for 24 hours post-dose on a confined basis at times sufficient to adequately define the pharmacokinetics of Colcrys. Blood sampling will continue on a non-confined basis at 36, 48, 60 and 72 hours post-dose. Subjects will be monitored throughout participation in the study for adverse reactions to the study drug and/or procedures. Vitals signs (temperature, respiratory rate, pulse rate and blood pressure) will be measured in the sitting position prior to dosing. Seated blood pressure and pulse will be measured at approximately 1, 3, 6 and 12 hours after dosing and prior to release from the facility. All adverse events whether elicited by query, spontaneously reported, or observed by clinic staff will be evaluated by the Investigator and reported in the subject's case report form.

This randomized, single dose, three-way crossover study will evaluate the bioequivalence of two formulations of colchicine, the test product (colchicine 0.6mg Mutual) and a marketed combin...
This open label, single group, sequential dose study will compare the single dose pharmacokinetics of colchicine 0.6 mg given orally to colchicine pharmacokinetics after 10 days of a stan...
Colchicine is a substrate for cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4). In-vitro studies have indicated that the ortho-and para-hydroxylated metabolites of atorvastatin may be CYP3A4/5 competitive and...
Ritonavir is a potent inhibitor of CYP3A4, one of the enzymes responsible for the metabolism of colchicine. This study will evaluate the effect of multiple doses of ritonavir on the pharm...
Colchicine is a toxic alkaloid prevalent in autumn crocus (Colchicum autumnale) that binds to tubulin and inhibits polymerization of microtubules. Using combinatorial and rational protein design, we h...
Inhibitors that bind to the paclitaxel- or vinblastine-binding sites of tubulin have been part of the pharmacopoeia of anticancer therapy for decades. However, tubulin inhibitors that bind to the colc...
Familial Mediterranean fever, a hereditary auto-inflammatory disease, mainly affects ethnic groups living in the Mediterranean region. Early studies reported colchicine as a potential drug for prevent...
A number of naturally occurring compounds such as paclitaxel, vinblastine, combretastatin, and colchicine exert their therapeutic effect by changing the dynamics of tubulin and its polymer form, micro...
Three, alpha, beta, and gamma isomers of ultraviolet degradation products of colchicine that lack many of the physiological actions of the parent; used as experimental control for colchicine actions.
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.
A major alkaloid from Colchicum autumnale L. and found also in other Colchicum species. Its primary therapeutic use is in the treatment of gout, but it has been used also in the therapy of familial Mediterranean fever (PERIODIC DISEASE).
Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
