Brief Summary:
This is a multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group phase 3 clinical study to confirm the safety and efficacy of T89 in patients with stable angina pectoris, with an extended open-label period to evaluate the long-term safety of T89.This study includes three main periods: the first study period is a 4-week single-blind qualifying period to screen eligible stable angina patients by exercise tolerance test (ETT). The second study period is a 8-week double-blind treatment period to evaluate the efficacy and safety of T89 in patients with stable angina by ETT. And the last study period is a 44-week open-label period to observe long-term use safety of T89.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Stable Angina Pectoris Drug: T89 capsule Drug: Placebo capsule Phase 3

Detailed Description:

After the signing the consent, patients will enter the Single Blind Qualifying Period for 4 weeks. All prophylactic anti-anginal medications will be withdrawn to allow only one beta blocker or one calcium channel blocker (CCB) to remain. If the patients can tolerate the withdrawal of the multiple anti-anginal medications, the dose of the one beta blocker or one CCB will be reduced to half of the pre-screening starting dose. Patients will have two qualifying exercise tolerance tests (ETTs), using modified Bruce protocol, conducted one week apart. Sublingual nitroglycerin is allowed for symptomatic relief.

Eligible patients will be randomly assigned to receive one of the three double-blind treatments: high dose T89, low dose T89 or placebo, in a 1:1:1 ratio. Each patient will be instructed to administer assigned treatment twice daily for 8 weeks. ETTs will be performed at the end of week 6 and 8 of treatment, or end of treatment (EOT) if study patient discontinues study prematurely.

Seattle Angina Questionnaire (SAQ) will be used to record patients' quality of life. Clinical evaluations and adverse event monitoring will be assessed throughout the study. Laboratory tests will be performed at screening and the designated visits.

Once the treatment period is completed, patients will enter the extended open label safety assessment period for a further 44 weeks. During this period, all patients will receive T89 at a daily dose of 600 mg, and they can resume their original anti-anginal medications as needed.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The change from baseline of symptom-limited total exercise duration (TED) at trough drug levels on modified Bruce Protocol to Day 57 of treatment compared with placebo. [ Time Frame: Day 57 (post drug administration from randomization) ]
    Exercise, a common physiological stress, can elicit cardiovascular abnormalities that are not present at rest, and it can be used to determine the adequacy of cardiac function. Clinical exercise tolerance test (ETT) is an established non-invasive procedure that provides diagnostic and prognostic information for the evaluation of several pathologies, the most common of which is coronary heart disease. Total exercise duration (TED) is the time from starting ETT to terminating ETT, usually presented by minutes and seconds. Modified Bruce protocol, one of the protocols used for the conduction of an ETT as a pre-defined speed and gradient in different time interval, will be applied in this study. The TED at each ETT will be collected and recorded as primary parameter, and the change from baseline of symptom-limited TED at trough drug levels on modified Bruce Protocol to Day 57 of treatment in high-dose and low-dose groups will be compared with that in placebo group.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The change (in %) from baseline of an average frequency of weekly angina episodes to within 14 days before Day 57 visit recorded on the MCT device. [ Time Frame: Day 57 (post drug administration from randomization) ]
    A mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) is a device similar to a Holter but quite smaller. This device is FDA-approved and used for recording the ECG tracing as well as the and angina episodes continuously for 7 days. The MCT device is safe and easy for participants to use even when you are taking a shower. Angina episodes during the past 7 days will be collected from MCT device and recorded by site staff at due visit until Day 57. And the change (in %) from baseline of an average frequency of weekly angina episodes to within 14 days before Day 57 of treatment in high-dose and low-dose groups will be compared with that in placebo group.

  2. The change (in %) from baseline of an average weekly on-demand consumption of short-acting nitroglycerin to within 14 days before Day 57 visit [ Time Frame: Day 57 (post drug administration from randomization) ]
    The amount of used short-acting nitroglycerin since last visit will be counted and recorded at each visit (except for the first visit), and the change (in %) from baseline of an average weekly on-demand consumption of short-acting nitroglycerin to within 14 days before Day 57 of treatment in high-dose and low-dose groups will be compared with that in placebo group.

  3. The change from baseline of symptom-limited TED at trough drug levels on modified Bruce Protocol to Day 43 of treatment compared with placebo [ Time Frame: Day 43(post drug administration from randomization) ]
    The TED at each ETT will be collected and recorded as primary parameter, and the change from baseline of symptom-limited TED at trough drug levels on modified Bruce Protocol to Day 43 of treatment in high-dose and low-dose groups will be compared with that in placebo group.

  4. Time to onset of angina during ETT [ Time Frame: Day 57 (post drug administration from randomization) ]
    Commonly, exercise will make heart pump harder and faster, and further cause in patients with stable angina as a result of myocardial ischemia. The time from the beginning of ETT to onset of angina during ETT will be collected and recorded at each ETT, and the change from baseline of the time to onset of angina during ETT to Day 57 of treatment in high-dose and low-dose groups will be compared with that in placebo group.

  5. Time to 1 millimeter (mm) ST depression during ETT [ Time Frame: Day 57 (post drug administration from randomization) ]
    Commonly, exercise will make heart pump harder and faster, and further cause angina event during ETT as a result of myocardial ischemia, sometimes accompanied by horizontal or down-slopping ST segment depression in electrocardiograph (ECG) in some patients with stable angina. The time from the beginning of ETT to onset of at least of 1 millimeter (mm) horizontal or down-slopping ST segment depression during ETT will be collected and recorded at each ETT, and the change from baseline of the time to onset of at least of 1 mm horizontal or down-slopping ST segment depression during ETT to Day 57 of treatment in high-dose and low-dose groups will be compared with that in placebo group.
