Objective: The strength-duration time constant (SDTC) is a measure of axonal excitability and it can provide information about Na(+) channel function. In this study, we sought to examine the changes in the SDTCs of motor and sensory fibers of the median nerve in patients taking colchicine, which affects axoplasmic flow and may result in axonal neuropathy.
