Overdose of colchicine leads to the delayed onset of multiorgan failure [23] and is frequently fatal [24, 25]. There is no specifc treatment and the chances of survival can only be infu- enced by early and aggressive gastrointestinal decontamination [22, 26]. Doses of 7–60 mg are generally fatal [27]; symptoms are visible in about 4 h, death oc- curring in about 4 days. Colchicine has been known to kill a human adult after ingestion of a single dose of 3 mg [28]. Colchicine poisoning resembles arsenic poisoning; the symptoms include burning in the mouth and throat, diarrhea, stomach pain, vomiting, and kidney failure [29]. The reactions in leaf movements were tested, but no conclusive results were obtained for col- chicine [31]. According to many references, Malden was the frst scientist to observe the effects of colchicine on mitosis because he reported that the drug appeared to “excite karyokinesis” [33] in white blood cells. Dixon and Malden prepared an excellent report on the effects of colchicine on blood [34]. Interferes with most leukocyte functions including diapedesis (ameboid movement) [35], mobilization, lysosomal degranulation [36], and most im- portantly leukocyte chemotaxis [37]. These effects may be mediated at least in part by a decrease in the expression of adhesion molecules on neutrophil membranes. Binds to and inhibits the assembly of microtubules [39], thereby interfering with secretory mechanisms such as the release of histamine from mast cells. Limits leukocyte activity by binding to tubulin, a cellular microtubular pro- tein, thus inhibiting protein polymerization [40]. Colchicine reduces the infammation and relieves the pain associated with acute gout [36], and it is used primarily for this purpose. Inhibits proliferation of fbroblasts [41] and decreases interleukin-l produc- tion in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis [42, 43]. Inhibits collagen transport to the extracellular space, hence its use in the prevention or treatment of amyloidosis [44, 45] and scleroderma. Colchicine is effective in controlling chronic cutaneous leukocytoclastic vas- culitis [46]. Prevents recurrences of acute pericarditis in adults and children [47–49], thereby replacing prolonged administration of corticosteroids [50]. It has long been known that gout and urate metabolism are linked and that gout is caused by the deposition of micocrystals of sodium urate in the joints [51, 52], causing infammation and pain. In humans and other primates, uric acid is the fnal metabolite in the breakdown of purines [53]. When this metabolic path- way becomes overwhelmed, from either an enzymatic defciency or an increase in dietary purines, uric acid cannot be effciently eliminated from the body. The poorly soluble uric acid crystallizes, initiating a response from macrophages and leukocytes. The phagocytosis of urate crystals by the macrophages and leukocytes, mainly neutrophils, stimulates the release of cytokines and interleu- kins, leading to infammation and the distinctive symptoms. Colchicine therapy diminishes the metabolic activity of leukocytes, resulting in reduced phagocytosis of urate microcrystals, therefore interrupting the cycle of new crystal deposition [54]. It also inhibits neutrophil motility and activity, leading to a net anti-infamma- tory effect. The precise mechanism by which colchicine relieves the intense pain of gout is not known [52]. However, it is believed that the major relief of pain involves colchicine’s major pharmacological action: inhibiting microtubule as- sembly. The microtubules are vital for the formation of spindle fbers during mitosis and meiosis, the intracellular transport of vesicles and proteins, fagella reassembly, ameboid motility, and other cellular processes. Inhibition of ame- boid motility prevents macrophage and leukocyte migration and phagocytosis, thereby presumably preventing the infammation and pain of gout. Colchicum extract was frst described as a treatment for gout in De Materia Medica of Padanius Dioscorides [55].

The impact of donor age on the outcomes of both donor hepatectomy mmHg (range, 8 to 37 mmHg) to 14 mmHg (range, 10 to 26 mmHg) after and living donor liver transplantation had not been clarified. Portal inflow had a positive correlation with portal pressure before Methods: We performed retrospective analysis of recipients of right lobe native liver hepatectomy (R2= 0. Patients were mL/min/100 g) before donor right hepatectomy to 318 mL/min/100 g (range, divided into 2 groups, donor age ≤45 years (group A) and >45 years (group 102 to 754 mL/min/100 g) after graft implantation. Blood loss, operation time, and post-operative complications of donor linear correlation with the recipient portal pressure before hepatectomy of right hepatectomy were compared. Operation time in both correlation with the portal pressure after graft implantation reflected relief of groups were comparable (454 minutes vs. Despite the high portal inflow hepatectomy in group B had more blood loss (312ml vs. Complications of Clavien Grade between two groups of donors were comparable (17% vs. Delvart1, Conclusion: Provided stringent selection protocol and standardized surgical M.
