An Observational Open Label Single Arm Single-Center Study of the Effects of Colchicine on Pain and Inflammation in Subjects with Hand Osteoarthritis

Brief description of study

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common, painful, and debilitating form of arthritis for which no cure currently exists. Previous studies show that OA is accompanied by difficult to see inflammation, suggesting that inflammation may cause to disease symptoms/progression. The purpose of this study is to observe if colchicine is effective at reducing pain and inflammation for people with OA involving the hand. Colchicine is an anti-inflammatory agent used commonly for gout. Its use in treating OA is considered off-label because it is not Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for treating OA.
