Pfizer Contributes Critical Data to URMC Drug Safety Initiative
Date:1/12/2009

specialized studies to monitor the QT prolongation effects of new drugs. The THEW project is part of this initiative.

The THEW database is a component of URMC's Heart Research Follow-up Program. The Program is an international leader in the science of heart arrhythmias and a rare genetic condition associated with an abnormal QT interval, called the congenital Long QT Syndrome (LQTS). URMC keeps an International Registry for LQTS, and follows thousands of families who have this inherited condition. One of the genetic forms of the QT prolongation syndrome is similar to the drug-induced syndrome, and the University's work focuses on developing the tools to identify individuals with either condition.
