The 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 who were taking the placebo. It has been estimated that over 100,000 people died avoidably because they were prescribed drugs in the same class.
