Validation of risk-stratification method for the chronic atrioventricular block cynomolgus monkey model and its mechanistic interpretation were performed using 6 pharmacologically-distinct drugs. The following drugs were orally administered in conscious state, astemizole: 1, 5 and 10 mg/kg (n = 6); haloperidol: 1, 10 and 30 mg/kg (n = 5); amiodarone: 30 mg/kg (n = 4); famotidine: 10 mg/kg (n = 4); levofloxacin: 100 mg/kg (n = 4); and tolterodine: 0.2, 1 and 4.5 mg/kg (n = 4). Astemizole of 5 and 10 mg/kg significantly prolonged ΔΔQTcF, whereas no significant change was observed by the others. Torsade de pointes (TdP) was induced by astemizole of 5 and 10 mg/kg in 3/6 and 6/6, and by haloperidol of 10 and 30 mg/kg in 1/5 and 1/5, respectively, which was not observed in the others. Torsadogenic risk of the drugs was quantified using the criteria for the monkey model specified in our previous study. Namely, high-risk drugs induced TdP at ≤ 3times of their maximum clinical daily dose. Intermediate-risk drugs did not induce TdP at this dose range, but induced it at higher doses. Low/no-risk drugs never induced TdP at any dose tested. The magnitude of risk was intermediate for astemizole and haloperidol, and low/no risk for the others. The pre-specified, risk-stratification method for the monkey model may solve the issue existing between non-clinical models and patients with labile repolarization, which can reinforce the regulatory decision-making and labelling at time of marketing application of non-double-negative drug candidate (hERG assay positive and/or in vivo QT study positive).
