Effectiveness and Tolerability of Trimetazidine 80 Mg Once Daily in Patients with Stable Angina Uncontrolled with Bisoprolol-Based Therapy: The Modus Vivendi Observational Study
At the end of 2021, a study to evaluate the effect of adding trimetazidine 80 mg once daily (TMZ 80 OD) to treat patients with persistent symptoms despite treatment with background antianginal therapies including maximally tolerated bisoprolol was published. The Modus Vivendi study, led by Yuri Lopatin, was conducted between October 2017 and July 2018 in Russia.
The main results of this study, regardless the doses of Bisoprolol, were:
The number of angina attacks was reduced in -74% at month 3 vs baseline
The mean short-acting nitrates consumption decreased in -78% at month 3 vs baseline
After 3 months, 44.0% participants reported no problems on all five dimensions of the EQ-5D-3L* vs 2.6% at baseline, meaning improvement in quality of life
Significant improvement in treatment adherence was observed
The results achieved in this study supports that the addition of Trimetazidine OD 80 to the treatment, including the ones with maximally tolerated bisoprolol, reduces angina attacks and improves quality of life, regardless of the background treatment.
