The ICH E14 guidance recommends that all new drugs with systemic bioavailability are assessed for the ability to delay cardiac repolarization as measured by the QT/QTc interval on the surface ECG. For most drugs, this evaluation is performed in the Thorough QT/QTc (TQT) study. Could using model-based approaches during routine early studies influence the current […]
