Low-dose colchicine lowered the risk of ischemic cardiovascular (CV) events after MI, and did so cost-effectively, according to results from the Canadian COLCOT trial. The primary efficacy outcome -- CV death (CVD), MI, stroke, resuscitated cardiac arrest, or urgent hospitalization for unstable angina leading to revascularization -- occurred in 5.5% of the colchicine group versus 7.1% of the placebo group (HR 0.77, 95% CI 0.61-0.96, P=0.02), reported Michelle Samuel, PhD, of the Montreal Heart Institute, at the virtual American College of Cardiology (ACC) meeting Continue reading
