Comparison of guinea-pig ventricular myocytes and dog Purkinje fibres for in vitro assessment of drug-induced delayed repolarization.

Abstract:

INTRODUCTION: QT interval prolongation and Torsade de Pointes (TdP) arrhythmias are recognised as a potential risk with many drugs, most of which delay cardiac repolarization by inhibiting the rapidly activating K(+) current (I(Kr)). The objective of this study was to compare the effects of compounds on cardiac action potentials recorded from guinea-pig ventricular myocytes and dog Purkinje fibres. METHODS AND RESULTS: Effects of dofetilide, sotalol, cisapride, terfenadine, haloperidol and s...
