Time to previous ACS event has no effect on efficacy of colchicine

5' education - Oct. 14, 2021 - Tjerk Opstal, MD
Trials with colchicine included different CVD patients; post-MI or with chronic coronary disease. Tjerk Opstal and colleagues investigated whether the efficacy of colchicine was dependent of the time to previous ACS event.
