Coffee clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Coffee is a popular drink that many people enjoy. UCSF is inviting people to join a research study called "Does Eliminating Coffee Avoid Fibrillation?" It is investigating whether there is a connection between drinking coffee and a heart condition called atrial fibrillation. We want to learn more about how coffee affects our health.
open to eligible people ages 21 years and up
Given both the increasing population impact of atrial fibrillation (AF) and the widespread consumption of coffee in society, determining an associated benefit or risk of coffee consumption on AF is of great clinical relevance. This pilot study will evaluate the effect of randomly assigning participants undergoing electrical cardioversion to coffee abstinence or coffee consumption over a 6 month period. This pilot study will provide the first, randomized evaluation of coffee on AF outcomes and will provide important information on whether or not coffee has any effect on AF recurrence.
