We created this case study film to supplement our Alltrials campaign film. The purpose of the film is to provide a real example to bolster what was laid out in the campaign film and to help to put things into context for the viewer.
The film describes how results of a 1980 clinical trial on heart drug Lorcainide were not published until a decade later. Doctors didn't know that more people died in the trial who were given Lorcainide than were taking the placebo. It has been estimated that over 100,000 people died avoidably because they were prescribed drugs in the same class.
