Abstract: Background: Cisapride is used frequently in premature neonates as a gastrointestinal prokinetic drug. Concerns exist, however, about its safety because of its effect on the QT interval. Premature infants could be at higher risk for side effects because of their immaturity. This prospective study investigated the pharmacokinetics of cisapride and its effects on corrected QT interval (QTc) and QT dispersion in premature infants.
