The technical field

The invention relates to farmacevticheskaya form essentially does not contain gelatin mammals and contains, at least one agent, forming a matrix (base) and modified with lactose starch.

Background of invention

The most common pharmaceutical dosage forms are tablets. The main disadvantage of tablets is poor compliance by patients regimens medication because of difficulty swallowing tablets and poor bioavailability of the active ingredient due to inefficient dissolving tablets. Therefore, in the medical community there is a need for quick-dissolving dosage forms. To overcome the shortcomings of tablets has been used a number of techniques, including the creation of effervescent tablets, razzhevyvaya tablets, the use of dispersing agents and agents that increase the absorbency.

Recently, using instant matrices on the basis of gelatin were prepared bystrotverdeyuschie dosage forms which release the active ingredient in the oral cavity. These dosage forms are well known and can be used to deliver a wide range of medicines. In most bystrotverdeyushchie dosage forms use gelatin as wear the governmental form, in order to prevent the destruction when removing from the packaging, but when hit in the mouth gelatin provides an immediate dissolution of the dosage form.

Gelatin BP (British Pharmacopoeia), which is normally used in such preparations, defined as the protein, obtained by partial hydrolysis of animal collagen tissues, such as skin, tendons, ligaments and bones. However, obtained from mammalian gelatin has a weak taste and, therefore, requires the use of such bystrotverdeyushchie dosage forms sweetening agents and flavoring substances to hide the taste of the active ingredient. When an ordinary animal gelatin is used upon receipt of such bystrotverdeyushchie dosage forms, it is necessary to heat the solution of gelatin in order to facilitate dissolution. This is the stage of heating increases the duration of the technological process and incurs costs on heating, thus increasing the total cost of the process.

Traditional manufacturing processes may require time keeping up to 48 hours. It is established that during this time the viscosity of the mixture on the basis of gelatin may increase, leading to technological enjoy the water, which can lead to shrinkage of the dosage form during normal storage period.

Another known issue with the quick-dissolving dosage forms on the basis of gelatin, is the lack of homogeneity and sedimentation liquid mixture during curing, as some mixtures include the active substance in the form of suspended particles. The use of gelatin derived from mammals, leads to the deposition of the active ingredient due to the low viscosity of gelatin derived from mammals. One of the advantages of the present invention is that by using the described modified starches largely overcome the problems of homogeneity and sedimentation associated with the use of gelatin derived from mammals.

Another advantage associated with the use of modified starches in recipes quick-dissolving dosage forms, based on the discovery that the dosage form with modified starch can contain a higher drug load. This is advantageous because for a given dose of the active ingredient dosage form with modified starch most other materials instead of gelatin in bystrotverdeyushchie dosage forms, but, although they can form solid products (reduced tendency to cracking and crushing), they usually slowly dispersed or form in the mouth sticky mass. It is now established that for the preparation of bystrotverdeyushchie dosage forms instead of gelatin mammals can be used modified starches.

Thus, the present invention provides a pharmaceutical composition for oral administration in the form of bistrotdepierrerue dosage form for fast release of the active ingredient in the oral cavity, characterized in that essentially does not contain gelatin composition comprises a modified starch and at least one agent, forming a matrix.

The invention creates the possibility of reducing or preferably exception of gelatin bystrotverdeyushchie dosage forms (BDLP). Modified starches can be used in BDLF as the main structure-forming agent with the formation of physically durable products, while maintaining the desirable characteristics of rapid dispersion products. With proper selection of the modified starch can p the time improved stability and physical strength of the dosage form. The modified starch can reduce or eliminate the content of sweetening agents, flavoring substances, which were previously used to improve the taste of the dosage form. The use of the material of Botanical origin instead of animal material also gives a positive effect by eliminating exposure to such agents as BSE.

Starch can be considered as the product of the condensation polymer of glucose. Such glucose components are present in the form anhydroglucose residues (AHP). If the processed starch or acids, or certain enzymes, it can be completely destroyed due to the hydrolysis of glycosidic linkages to its components glucose levels. Most of the starch consists of two types of glucose polymers, each of which has a wide size range of molecules:

(i) a molecule with a linear chain, called aminosol, which can contain up to 6000 units of glucose linked 1-4 bonds, and

(ii) a highly branched polymer called amylopectin, consisting of short chains (from 10 to 60 glucose units), the United -1 is -6 and the secondary hydroxyl group on carbon-2 and carbon-3. Such molecules have many hydroxyl groups, which give starch hydrophilic properties and lead to dispersive ability of the pigment starch when heated with water. However, these hydroxyl groups also have a tendency to be attracted to each other, forming hydrogen bonds between adjacent molecules of starch and preventing dissolution in cold water.

Natural starch can be modified by physical, chemical or enzymatic treatment to modify its properties or giving it new properties. The properties of these modified starches include the ratio of the solid components, the viscosity characteristics of gelatinization and cooking, resistance fall of viscosity under the action of acid, heat and/or mechanical shear, ionic and hydrophilic character.

A number of modified starches is commercially available and useful in the present invention, and includes:

Pre gelatinisation starches obtained by drying in the dryer or by extrusion:

Low viscosity starches obtained by controlled hydrolysis of glycosidic linkages;

Dextrins obtained by calcination of the dry starch in the presence of HB diluted acid to achieve the desired viscosity;

Oxidized starches, when oxidizing agents cause the introduction of carbonyl and carboxyl groups with depolymerization, leading to a reduced ability to conversion and gelatinization;

Enzyme modified starches, obtained by controlled enzymatic degradation to achieve the required physico-chemical properties;

Cross-linked starches, when bi - or polyfunctional reagents react with hydroxyl groups for cross-linking; examples of specific reagents are phosphorus oxychloride, trimetaphosphate sodium and epichlorohydrin; and

Stabilized starches, when the starch reacts with the agents simple or complex esterification in the presence of an alkaline catalyst with the formation of a wide range of products.

Comparative gelatin BDLF relatively BDLF with modified starch

In an article entitled “Drug Delivery Products and the Zydis Fast Dissolving Dosage Form” (H. Seagers et al., J. Pharm Pharmacol., 1998) discusses the problems associated with highly water-soluble drugs in BDLF. Zydis® is a registered trademark of R. P. Scherer Corporation, Basking Ridge, N j, USA. N. Seagers with co-authors found that the dose of water-soluble drugs is usually limited to an upper value of approximately 60 mg per dosage form. The dose size is governed by the behavior of medicines during the process of freezing and drying characteristics. Can be obtained eutectic mixtures, which cannot adequately be frozen or can melt at higher the et to form an amorphous solid by freezing and that is a solid substance may “shrink” during the drying process due to ice sublimation and loss support structures.

The collapse of structures formed by water-soluble drugs, as you know, is reduced due to the inclusion of forming crystals of filler. These materials are also known as forming the matrix agents. These materials contribute to the crystallinity and, consequently, the stiffness of amorphous products. Another method involves the binding of a water-soluble compound with ion exchange resin with the formation of water-insoluble complex. Another method incorporates non-aqueous solution of the active ingredient in the pre-formed elements placebo-BDLF. The organic solvent is then evaporated, and recrystallized medication is deposited in the pores Zydis-matrix.

Another technique, which is known to overcome the problems associated with highly water-soluble active compounds, is the decrease of the ratio of drug to excipient and increase mass filling blister packs. This effectively weakens the influence of active soluble compounds at the same dose of medicine, but with a larger amount of filler. This possible solution has obvious disadvantages in that it requires greater if the capacity due to limitations in size.

It is also known that the solubility of the drug can be changed by regulating the pH. Reduced solubility, as is well known, facilitates the introduction of higher doses of active compounds in BDLF. One aspect of the present invention is based on the discovery that the use of essentially not containing gelatin BDLF, which use a modified starch, allows you to enter a greater number of water-soluble drugs, than in the case of conventional gelatin systems. This example is presented in order to show such an unexpected result.

In this example, three (3) highly water-soluble active ingredient were prepared in the form BDLF. The solubility of these active compounds in water are presented below:

Diclofenac-sodium - 1:30 water

Pravastatin-sodium - 1:3 water

Phenylpropanolamine-HCl - 1:2,5 water

In accordance with table 1 prepared the following sample.

Samples 1, 3 and 5 (samples containing gelatin) prepared by adding gelatin and mannitol funnel mix of purified water. The mixture is then heated to a temperature of 60°C(±1°C) to put gelatin and mannitol in rest the Ala. Each download before dispensing blister packaging incubated for at least one (1) hour. Samples 2, 4 and 6 (samples with modified starch is prepared by adding starch and mannitol in a clean, dry chemical glass and dry mixing with a spatula. Then to this mixture, add purified water and homogenized using a Silverson L4R - Small Head Adapter at half speed for two (2) minutes. To this solution add the specified active material and leave to dosing for at least one (1) hour. No heating of the downloads are required and not taken.

Each sample is dosed in 20 blister packs using the metering device Hamilton Microlab that puts 500 mg of a mixture of (±2%) in aluminum blister pockets. Blister packs then frozen at -110°C With liquid nitrogen at the time of 3.2 minutes. Frozen samples before freeze-drying stored at -25°C. Drying by freezing, make use of a temperature cycle from -10 to 10°C at 0.5 mbar. The samples are dried overnight on the day of manufacture.

After freeze-drying each package is extracted and Oslo noticeable when viewed BDLF and shows 90% of sample 1 clearly form cracks, while for sample 2 (containing modified starch) showed 0%. Sample 3 containing gelatin, shows 45-50% of cracking, whereas sample 4 on the basis of starch formulations, it does not crack.

Sample 5 containing 2.5% of the mass. phenylpropanolamine and 4% of the mass. gelatin gives the degree of cracking of 60-70%. This means that 60-70% 20 blister fillings for this sample crack and crumble when trying to extract from the blister pack. On the contrary, the use of starch in the sample 6 leads to the degree of cracking is only 10-20%.

This experience clearly shows that the use of modified starch in BDLF provides a higher content of highly water-soluble active compounds, which can be entered in BDLF without cracking and reduction of physical stability observed in the case of conventional gelatin preparations.

Example 8


From the work carried out in example 7, it is obvious that the use of modified starch in BDLF provides a higher level of load of the dosage form in the absence of cracking and/or physical is to get BDLF on the basis of gelatin, containing the same active ingredient per dosage form. Essentially, this experiment was conducted in order to determine whether it is possible to prepare formulations on the basis of gelatin containing highly active soluble compounds, without melting (absorption of water vapor and falling physical stability and formation of cracks. Received the following medications:

These samples manufactured as described in example 7, except that the used filling 750 ml. After removing the samples from the stage of freeze-drying a visual inspection shows no samples with cracks. This example shows that the necessary larger dosing forms, when receiving bystrotverdeyushchie dosage forms used gelatin. This unexpected result has the advantage that smaller dosage forms that use modified starch, will improve patients ' adherence to regimens and reduce the cost of production.

Industrial applicability

The present invention relates to bystromenyayuschimsya dosage forms for oral administration. The advantages of Lublin funds. Currently, the most commercially popular form is soluble solid dosage form, which is prepared by introducing an aliquot of the suspension of therapeutic agent, solvent, gelatin and other fillers in the prior variance. The liquid is then frozen, and then the solvent is removed by sublimation, usually freeze-drying. The resulting tablets have an open porous matrix, which easily dissolves upon contact with saliva.

The conventional BDLF has some drawbacks, for example: 1) the use of gelatin derived from mammals; 2) limited load highly water-soluble active compounds in BDLF; 3) insufficient mechanical strength; 4) unpleasant taste; 5) inability to ensure homogeneity of the mixture; (6) inability to prevent the deposition of particles of the active substance; and (7) the minimum dissolved in cold water. The present invention is a step forward in the field BDLF due to the discovery that certain modified starches can be used for cooking BDLF, which have improved physical stability; unexpected ability to contain a higher load is echeveste to absorb moisture and subsequent shrinkage when compared with gelatin matrix systems); and a significant decrease in the deposition rate of active particles in the mixture.
