Patients with coronary artery disease have an abnormal cardiac metabolism. The hypothesis of this study is that shifting cardiac metabolism from free fatty acids to glucose will improve myocardial ischemia

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease
Type II Diabetes Mellitus
Drug: Trimetazidine
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Effect of Metabolic Therapy in Patients With Chronic Ischemic Heart Disease

Further study details as provided by IRCCS San Raffaele:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • total ischemic burden
  • silent ischemia

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • symptomatic myocardial ischemia

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: February 1999
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2003
Detailed Description:

The present study will evaluate the effect of free fatty acid inhibition with Trimetazidine on silent myocardial ischemia and total ischemic burden in coronary artery disease patients with type II diabetes.

Patients will undergo ambulatory ECG monitoring at baseline and will be randomized to receive on top of thei standard anti-anginal therapy trimetazidine or placebo for 6 months. Patients will repeat the ambulatory ECG monitoring at the end of the study
