Drug cardiotoxicity is one of the main reasons of fatal drug related problem events and the subsequent withdrawals. Therefore, its early assessment is a crucial element of the drug development process. For the drug driven hERG inhibition assessment, which is assumed to be the main reason for toxicity, in vitro techniques are used. Gold standards are based on the Patch Clamp method with the use of various cell models but due to its low throughput, insilico models have become more appreciated. To develop a reliable empirical QSAR model, wide dataset containing a variety of cases has to be available. In this article, a freely available for download, set of data is described. It is based on literature peer-reviewed reports and contains hERG inhibition information expressed as IC50 value for 263 molecules described in 642 records. All studies were done with the use of three cell models (XO, CHO, HEK) and other elements describe the electrophysiological settings of the in vitro study. The above mentioned set was used for the successful development of the predictive models.
