Product description

Colchicine, an alkaloid, was extracted from the genus Colchicum, also known as colchicine.

Pure colchicine is yellow needle-like crystal with a melting point of 157 °C. Soluble in water, ethanol, and chloroform. It is bitter and poisonous. Colchicine inhibits mitosis, destroys the spindle, and causes chromosomes to stagnate in the middle of the division.

This abnormal division caused by colchicine is called colchicine mitosis. In such mitosis, although the chromosome is split, the cells do not divide and cannot form two daughter cells, thereby doubling the chromosome.

Since 1937, American scholar A.F. Blakeslee and others have succeeded in the cytology, genetics research and plant breeding after the success of colchicine and doubling the chromosome number of plants such as mandala.

Colchicine was first extracted by two French chemists PS Pollett and J. Cavalton in 1820. There is also a saying that colchicine was discovered in 1937.


This Ingredient was later studied as a tricyclic alkaloid, and its analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects in gout treatment are related to its ability to bind to tubulin, Also used as an anti-tumor drug.

Today used to prevent or treat gout attacks. Usually, gout symptoms develop and involve only one or a few joints, The big toe, knee, or ankle joints are most often affected. Gout is caused by too much uric acid in the blood. When uric acid levels in the blood are too high, the uric acid may form hard crystals in your joints. Colchicine works by decreasing swelling and lessening the build-up of uric acid crystals that cause pain in the affected joint(s).

This Ingredient is also used to prevent attacks of pain in the abdomen, chest, or joints caused by a certain inherited disease (familial Mediterranean fever). It is thought to work by decreasing your body's production of a certain protein (amyloid A) that builds up in people with familial Mediterranean fever.
