Quebec researchers from the Montreal Heart Institute have found that colchicine - a medication used to treat inflammation and gout - is an effective oral treatment for COVID-19.

An extensive study launched by the Montreal Heart Institute last March has concluded the anti-inflammatory medication colchicine can reduce some of the complications associated with COVID-19.

Additionally, per the report, patients who tested virus-positive saw that the drug not only reduced hospitalizations by 25% but the need for mechanical ventilation by 50%, and deaths by 44%.

The study was carried out in Canada, the US, Europe and South America among a population of 4,488 patients.

Colchicine is effective in preventing unsafe inflammatory syndromes called "cytokine storms" and reducing complications associated with Covid-19, said Dr Jean-Claude Tardif, director of the MHI Research Centre and principal investigator in this study.

The study was conducted among Covid-19 patients not hospitalised at the time of enrollment in the trial, and with at least one risk factor for Covid-19 complications.

In a news release issued Friday, the institute described its findings as a "major scientific discovery" that could help millions of COVID-19 patients around the world.
