ERT Briefing: ICH E14 and S7B Questions and Answers

The International Council for Harmonisation (ICH) E14/S7B Implementation Working Group recently held a two-day presentation and discussion which covered the revised questions and answers for the ICH guidance for E14 Clinical Evaluation of the QT/QTc Interval Prolongation and Proarrhythmic Potential for Non-Antiarrhythmic Drugs and new Q&As for the ICH guidance for S7B Nonclinical Evaluation of the Potential for Delayed Ventricular Repolarization (QT Interval Prolongation) by Human Pharmaceuticals, providing recommendations on considerations for an integrated risk assessment combining nonclinical and clinical data. 

ERT’s cardiologists Dr Kleiman and Dr. Darpo will share their views on how the revised guidance may impact how sponsors perform ECG and QT evaluation in clinical trials, with emphasis on requirements on exposure-response analysis to exclude that a drug has a clinically relevant effect on the QTc interval. 

Featured topics include: 

  • Background for the new Q&As for ICH E14 and S7B
  • Summary of key changes in non-clinical assays
  • How clinical assessments are being affected
  • Audience Q&A
