"Action Points:
  • The anti-inflammatory agent colchicine, used mostly in the treatment of gout, appears to be effective for treating acute pericarditis and in preventing recurrences of the condition, a study found.
  • Note that treatment with colchicine also did not result in a significant increase in adverse events compared with placebo."
