For 13 years, the Cana­di­an biotech Cor­re­vio tried to get the FDA to ac­cept a heart drug since aban­doned by Mer­ck and Astel­las. Yes­ter­day, the agency’s out­side ex­perts vot­ed 11-2 against ap­proval, all but as­sur­ing an­oth­er re­jec­tion for the atri­al fib­ril­la­tion com­pound ver­nakalant.
