Cardiome Pharma Corporation was incorporated in December 12, 1986 under the name Nortran Resources Ltd. In June 2001, it changed its name to Cardiome Pharma Corp. It is a biopharmaceutical company which discovers, develops and commercializes new therapies that improve the health of patients around the world. It has one product, BRINAVESS, approved for marketing in Europe and other territories for the rapid conversion of recent onset atrial fibrillation to sinus rhythm in adults. Its clinical programs are focused on the treatment of atrial fibrillation, an arrhythmia (or abnormal rhythm) of the upper chambers of the heart. Vernakalant is a new chemical entity designed by it to treat atrial fibrillation, with the potential to overcome the limitations of current drugs used to treat atrial fibrillation. The drug was being developed for two potential applications: vernakalant (IV) is being evaluated as an intravenous pharmacological converting agent designed to terminate an atrial fibrillation episode and return the heart to normal rhythm; and vernakalant (oral) is being evaluated as an oral maintenance therapy for the long-term prevention of atrial fibrillation recurrence. The research, development, manufacture, distribution, sale, and marketing of pharmaceutical products are subject to extensive regulation. In the United States, Europe and Canada, these activities are subject to rigorous regulation by the FDA, the EMA, and TPD, respectively. In addition, the research, manufacturing, distribution, sale, and promotion of pharmaceutical products are also potentially subject to regulation by various regional, national, and local authorities where the products are being developed and marketed.
