Abstract: QT prolongation is commonly used as a surrogate marker for Torsade de Pointes (TdP) risk of non-cardiovascular drugs. However, use of this indirect marker often leads to misinterpretation of the realistic TdP risk, as tested compounds may cause QT prolongation without evoking TdP in humans. A negative electro-mechanical (E-M) window has recently been proposed as an alternative risk marker for TdP in a canine LQT1 model. Here, we evaluated the E-M window in anaesthetized guinea pigs as a screening marker for TdP in humans.
