A clinical trial to determine the safest and most effective 2-dose bolus of tecadenoson*, a potent selective A1-adenosine receptor agonist with a dose-dependent negative dromotropic effect on the AV node.

*Tecadenoson terminates induced paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) without the clinically significant side effects caused by stimulation of other adenosine receptors.

Conclusion The optimal tecadenoson regimen, 300 μg/600 μg, effectively and rapidly converted 90% of PSVT patients to normal sinus rhythm with no significant adverse effects. 

Abbreviation for Trial to Evaluate the Management of Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia During an Electrophysiology Study With Tecadenoson
