Answer

Anti-inflammatory agents

Colchicine is a disaggregator of microtubules, not a member of any of the traditional categories of anti-inflammatory agents.

Colchicine

Decreases leukocyte motility and phagocytosis in inflammatory responses. Effective in the treatment of acute gout, pseudogout, and the prophylaxis of acute febrile episodes of FMF. The latter effect probably is responsible for the reduced frequency of renal amyloidosis when treatment is adequate.
