The widely used Bazett’s correction is the “gold standard”. Yet, although QT prolongation is clearly associated with an increased risk of TdP, there is no reliable criterion to identify the length of QT prolongation that is associated with a clinically significant increased risk of TdP. Because of significant inter-individual variation in the risk of life-threatening dysrhythmia for a given QT interval, an individually based assessment of risk may be most accurate. However, this is generally not feasible in clinical settings.
More than a decade ago it was shown that global genomic levels of DNA methylation are lower in cancer cells than in normal tissue [ 48-50 ]. In the number of experimental models of carcinogenesis, this decrease in numbers of methyl groups appears to begin early in tumour progression and before the tumour formation [ 51 , 52 ]. A possible direct role for DNA hypomethylation in the neoplastic process has been proposed from experimental data showing that in rodents depletion of methyl donor from the diet results in liver carcinogenesis and in DNA hypomethylation [ 53 ].
