[Fwd: [hometissueculture] Colchicine Toxicity]

There are other groups also on the same subjects but I've haven't been
paying close attention.

-- BEGIN included message

On balance to comments regarding the toxicity of colchicine it should be pointed 
out that colchicine is a clinically useful agent in the treatment of "gouty arthritis".
My Physicians' Desk Reference (1992, 46th edition) lists two available forms of

 ColBENEMID Tablets (0.5g probenecid, 0.5mg colchicine) from Merck
 Colchicine (Injectable) Ampoules (1mg colchicine in 2ml solution) from Eli Lily

In the case of the tablet form the dosage appears to be 1 to 2 tablets daily for
a period of (at least) several days.

I'll leave it to the reader to decide what this information means
in relation to accidental/casual dosage in the laboratory environment.<g>
