ECG Assessments During the Development of Oncology Compounds

Published 03 August 2015 | By PRA Health Sciences

Assessment of ECGs during the development of oncology compounds is challenging. Toxicity of these compounds often precludes the inclusion of healthy volunteers while a higher variability of ECG parameters in oncology patients can be expected due to disease, comedication, and co-morbidities. Recently, it was shown that the extraction of ECG data using the High Precision QT technique of iCardiac and Exposure Response analysis can result in a conclusive ECG assessment with a limited number of volunteers. Applying these techniques in a small-sized oncology study with dedicated PRA staff presents a unique opportunity for a conclusive and efficient cardiac safety assessment by ECG.
