Zebrafish serve as an excellent model for assessing drug-induced cardiotoxicity. The cardiovascular risk assessment of six atypical antipsychotic drugs; aripiprazole, clozapine, olanzapine, quetiapine, risperidone and ziprasidone, was done by zebrafish model. Visual endpoints (llethality, edema, hemorrhage, abnormal body shape and motility) were evaluated as general toxicity endpoints, and the change rate of heart beat as the cardiovascular toxicity endpoint. The zebrafish presents a potentially useful in vivo preclinical model for assessment of the adverse effects of atypical antipsychotic drugs.
