CompositionEach tablet contains Trimetazidine Hydrochloride BP 35 mg.
PharmacologyTrimetazidine Hydrochloride has been proven to exert antianginal properties due to its specific metabolic mechanism of action. Trimetazidine Hydrochloride reduces the metabolic damage caused during ischemia, by acting on a critical step in cardiac metabolism: fatty acid β-oxidation. This is made possible by selectively inhibiting an enzyme of fatty acid β-oxidation: the long-chain 3-ketoacyl CoA thiolase (3-KAT). This inhibition results in a reduction in fatty acid oxidation & stimulation of glucose oxidation. Thus, the coupling of glycolysis with glucose oxidation is improved, and ATP production is further increased, while the harmful consequences of acidosis and of Ca2+ overload are limited.
