Coffee clinical trials at UCSF

Coffee is a popular beverage brewed from beans. UCSF is researching if avoiding coffee can lower the risk of a heart condition known as atrial fibrillation. This study is crucial due to the high consumption of coffee and the prevalence of this heart disorder.

  • Does Eliminating Coffee Avoid Fibrillation?

    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.
