Cardiotoxicity is an important issue in drug development. In the present study, we focused on 8 genes (Spp1, Fhl1, Timp1, Serpine1, Bcat1, Lmcd1, Rnd1 and Tgfb2) as candidate genomic biomarkers for cardiotoxicity in rats, and constructed an optimized support vector machine (SVM) model that was composed of Spp1 and Timp1. This multi-gene model exhibited advantages over classic tools commonly used for cardiotoxicity evaluations in rats, and the application of the model could potentially lead to the production of safer drugs.
