Overview of Trimebutine maleate
Trimebutine maleate is a drug with antimuscarinic and weak mu opioid agonist effects. The major product from drug metabolism of trimebutine in human beings is nortrimebutine,which comes from removal of one of the methyl groups attached to nitrogen. Trimebutine exerts its effects in part due to causing a premature activation of phase III of the migrating motor complex in the digestive tract.Both Trimebutine and its metabolite are commercially available.
Primary Characterstics of Trimebutine maleate
Molecular Structure of Trimebutine Maleate belongs to Aminobenzoate. It belongs to Alpha adrenergic agonist pharmacological group on the basis of mechanism of action and also classified in Gastrointestinal Anticholinergics/Antispasmodics and Antispasmodic Agent pharmacological group.The Molecular Weight of Trimebutine (Maleate) is 503.50.
Application of Trimebutine maleate
Trimebutine maleate is used to make the movement of the intestinal tract more normal. This medication slows down or speeds up the movement of the intestines if the gut is not working well. It does not affect a normally working gut. It is used to treat symptoms (e.g., abdominal pain/fullness, gas, diarrhea, constipation) of irritable bowel syndrome (spastic colon). Trimebutine is also used to restart the movement of the gut after abdominal surgery and to prevent intestinal blockage (paralytic ileus).

The effect of trimebutine maleate on gastric emptying in patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia

The study was designed to investigate the effect of trimebutine maleate, a drug used in both hyperkinetic and hypokinetic motility disorders, on gastric emptying in patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia having prolonged gastric emptying rates and to compare the parameters used for the determination of the lag period observed during the emptying of solid foods from the stomach. Gastric emptying was measured by the radionuclide technique. Twenty normal volunteers and 43 patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia participated in the study. Radionuclide imaging was performed by using a solid meal labeled with 99mTc-tin colloid. Of the patients with non-ulcer dyspepsia, 20 had prolonged gastric emptying. They were given three weeks of oral treatment with trimebutine maleate and had their radionuclide gastric emptying study repeated. Treatment with trimebutine maleate resulted in reduction in duration of the lag period and less retention of food at 100 minutes (p < 0.0005). After treatment with trimebutine maleate, no significant difference has been observed in the mean symptom score of patients with prolonged gastric emptying. Among the parameters used for the determination of the lag period, lag period determined by a mathematical equation (TLAG) has been found to be longer than the lag 

Effect of trimebutine maleate on sinus node pacemaker activity of the rabbit

The electrophysiological effects of trimebutine maleate were studied on rabbit sinus node cells with the two-microelectrode voltage clamp method. Trimebutine (above 10 μM) produced a negative chronotropic effect accompanied by decreases in the maximum upstroke velocity at phase 0, slope of phase 4 depolarization and action potential amplitude. The effects on the current systems were depression of the slow inward current and a decrease in the current oscillations induced by elevating [Ca]0. It is concluded that trimebutine exerts a Ca2+ channel blocking effect on the sinus node pacemaker cells.

Efficacy of Trimebutine Maleate in the Treatment of Functional Dyspepsia in Childhood

Peripheral μ-, k- and δ-opioid agonist trimebutine maleate is considered to be an effective therapeutic drug for the treatment of functional gastrointestinal disorders. Ninety-two paediatric outpatients (12- 17 year-old) suffering from functional dyspepsia (epigastric pain and meal-induced dyspeptic symptoms) were enrolled in a prospective openlabel study. For ethical reasons, no placebo group was included. Patients were treated with trimebutine maleate (200 mg three times daily). After a 3-week treatment there was a significant decrease in scores of epigastric pain (p<0.05), postprandial fullness (p<0.05), early satiety (p<0.05), nausea (p<0.05) and belching (p<0.05). The treatment regimen was well tolerated and demonstrated a good compliance. In conclusion, we postulate that trimebutine maleate is an effective medication for relief of main symptoms associated with functional dyspepsia syndrome in childhood. Because of the limited data on therapeutic interventions in functional dyspepsia in childhood and increasing demand for therapies to treat this disorder, further evaluation of the efficacy of trimebutine treatment for children is certain.

Objective: To observe the effect of trimebutine maleate compound preparation on gastric emptying,small intestine advancing and protein digestion as well as its role in acute toxicity.Method: Nutritional semi-solid filling regimens was adopted to test the gastric residual rate and small intestine advancing rate;biuret protein test was used to detect impact of protein digestion;improved Karber method was applied to test the acute toxicity.Result: Compared with model control group,trimebutine maleate compound preparation in each group significantly reduced the rate of gastric residue while increasing the small intestine advancing rate(P0.05);compared with the blank control group,the protein digestibility of trimebutine maleate compound preparation group increased significantly(P0.05);the mortality of 5 trimebutine maleate compound preparation groups with different doses were 0%,10%,40%,90% and 100%,respectively.Conclusion: Trimebutine maleate compound preparation can not only reduce the inhibition of gastrointestinal tract movement due to atropine,but can enhance the digestion of proteins.LD50 for oral administration of mice is(2.89±0.35) g/kg;95% confidence limit of 2.56~3.27 g/kg.

Curative effect of trimebutine maleate on gastric dynamic disorder in patients with cirrhosis

Aim To analyze the change of electrogastrogram(EGG) and estimate the efficacy of trimebutine maleate in treatment of gastric dynamic disorder in patients with cirrhosis.Methods 95 patients were divided into two groups by liver function.Patients with gastric dynamic disorder were examined with EGG before and after the treatment of trimebutine maleate and their symptoms were assessed simultaneously.Results There was significant difference between them.EGG examinations before and after meal showed that average frequency was reversed to normal level after treatment with trimebutine maleate.The symptoms of patients were also improved after the treatment(P0.05).Conclusion Trimebutine maleate can relieve symptoms and improve the average frequency of EGG in patients of cirrhosis with gastric dynamic disorder

A Case of Trimebutine-Induced Anaphylaxis

Trimebutine maleate [2-dimethylamino-2-phenylbutyl 3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoic acid] has been demonstrated to be active for relieving abdominal pain and it is widely used for patients with irritable bowel syndrome. Adverse drug reactions are mostly mild and well-tolerated. To our knowledge, only two cases of trimebutine induced hypersensitivity have been reported, and both were delayed type reactions. Here, we report the first case of trimebutine maleate-induced anaphylaxis.

A case of senile depression with dysarthria due to trimebutine maleate

Trimahutine maleate is a gastroenteric motor modulator which improves abnormal peristaltic movements through the direct effect on the smooth muscle cells. We examined a case of senile depression with dysarthria due to trimebutine maleate. The patient was a 67-year-old female. At the age of 65, she became depressive state without any causes and some nontricyclic antidepressants gave her no relief from the depression and induced side effects (drowsiness, dry mouth and dysarthria), When she was 66 years old, she was given trimebutine maleate (100mg) for her irritable colon syndrome. After several hours of the administration, she suffered from dysarthria and finger tremor. Quitting trimebutine maleate stopped the symptoms a few days later. The cranial CT findings before the occurrence of dysarthria showed cavum septi pellucidi, cavum Vergae, calcifications in bilateral basal gangilas and mild atrophy of cerebral cortices and the findings after the occurrence had no change. Cerebral hemorrhage and infarction were ruled out by her CT findings and the other drugs were unlikely to cause the dysarthria. Therefore, trimebutine maleate might induce the dysarthria which seemes to be the breakdown of the balance between dopaminergic and cholinergic systems in the brain. Moreover, it is speculated that her dispositional frailty of the central nervous system and the cerebral organic changes by cavum septi pellucidi, the calcifications and aging underlay the apperance of the dysarthria.

Effect of Trimebutine Maleate on Diabetic Diarrhea

Seven patients were studied to evaluate the effect of trimebutine maleate on diabetic diarrhea. All patients had severe autonomic neuropathy. Improvement was assessed on the basis of subjective symptoms (diarrhea score) after oral administration of trimebutine maleate (300 mg/day). Within two days, severe diarrhea was markedly reduced. No side effects were observed in any of the patients. The results of this study suggest that trimebutine maleate may serve as a useful drug in improving the symptom of diabetic diarrhea.

Effects of trimebutine maleate (TM-906) on the gastrointestinal motility in anesthetized dogs

Effects of trimebutine maleate (TM-906) on the spontaneous motility of the gastrointestinal tracts were investigated in anesthetized dogs by means of force transducers. TM-906, administrated intravenously or intraduodenally, produced an inhibition followed by a potentiation of the spontaneous motility in the stomach, and caused a potentiation of the spontaneous motility in the duodenum, jejunum, ileum and colon. These effects of TM-906 were observed also in the vagotomized dogs as in the intact dogs. From these results, it is suggested that TM-906 modulates the spontane-ous motility of the gastrointestinal tracts primarily through the peripheral mechanism.

Effects of trimebutine maleate on the gastrointestinal motility in conscious dogs

Trimebutine maleate is known to have beneficial effect in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. In conscious dogs with implanted force transducers, effects of trimebutine maleate on the gastrointestinal motility were investigated by intravenous injection, and the results were compared to those with metoclopramide and hyoscine-N-butylbromide. When trimebutine maleate was administered during the motor quiescence in the interdigestive state, contractions were evoked or the quiescent time was shortened in the gastrointestinal tract. In the digestive state, the gastric antral contractile activity was reduced, and duodenal activity was somehow suppressed by trimebutine maleate; but in the jejunum, ileum or colon, the activity was augmented. Injection of metoclopramide evoked a continuous contraction in the gastric antrum and duodenum during the period of motor quiescence in the interdigestive state. In the digestive state, metoclopramide caused a slight enhancement in the contractile activity of the gastric antrum. On the other hand, hyoscine-N-butylbromide produced no effect during the period of motor quiescence in the interdigestive state and suppressed the activity of the gastrointestinal tract during the digestive state. Thus, the pattern of action of trimebutine maleate was different from metoclopramide and hyoscine-N-butylbromide. It was concluded that trimebutine maleate produces dual actions, suppression and acceleration, on the gastrointestinal motility in conscious dogs.
