AFIB

Atrial Fibrillation Investigation with Bidisomide. A trial that evaluated bidisomide for managing atrial fibrillation and supraventricular tachycardia, to establish dose range and detect mortality.
Conclusion There was no difference in time to first recurrence between placebo and any bidisomide dose; trial was ended early, as unfavourable trend in mortality in patients receiving bidisomide was not offset by increased efficacy.
