Effect of Anagrelide on Cardiac Repolarization in Healthy Volunteers: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo- and Positive-Controlled, Thorough QT Study

The assessment of drug-induced changes in the QT and QTc interval has become a necessary component of drug development. This is because of the potential for new drugs with suspected or known effects on the heart to cause life-threatening delayed cardiac repolarization.

A study was conducted to evaluate the effects of low and high therapeutic single doses of anagrelide on the QT/QTc interval. 60 healthy volunteers were enrolled into a randomized, double-blind, crossover trial.
