English term or phrase: human ether-a-go-go-related gene
The reason for concern is that domperidone in higher doses could potentially induce arrhythmias in some patients. After all, it is a HERG (*human ether-a-go-go-related gene*) receptor antagonist and could potentially alter potassium levels in the myocardium, leading to arrhythmias. The original studies in cancer patients, where domperidone was used intravenously, illustrated this point.
