Automated screening to detect cardiotoxicity in zebrafish

Topic : Cardiotoxicity

Test Method Number: TM2009-07 (EU)
Short Name of TM: Zebrafish assay

Method Description

Zebrafish embryos (48hpf) are exposed in a HTS system to test compounds and effects on heart rate, arrhythmia and death/fibrilation are automatically detected.

The aim of the method is to identify compounds that induce arrhythmia and consequently present a potential risk of QT interval prolongation. In addition, compounds that induce non zERG-related cardiotoxicity should be identified, to be classified as generally cardiotoxic.

The test is inteneded as screening method to detect cardiotoxicity of products in early stages of drug development.
