The technical field to which the invention relates.

The invention relates to liquid preparations, which contain the antibiotic tobramycin and which can be introduced in the form of pharmaceutical drugs by injection or aerosol form, namely in the lungs or nasal. In addition, the invention relates to pharmaceutical kits comprising two components, which can be prepared liquid preparations for administration of tobramycin. In addition, the invention relates to the use of drugs in pharmaceutical products that can be introduced into the lungs or nasal via atomizer and which can be used for the treatment of cystic fibrosis or other diseases of the respiratory tract.

Prior art

The tobramycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic having the chemical name O-3-amino-3-deoxy-α-D-glyukopiranozil(1→4)-O-[2,6-diamino-2,3,6-trideoxy-α-D-RIBO-hexopyranosyl-(1→6)]-2-deoxystreptamine, which is used systemically or topically for the treatment of severe infections. Systemic treatment is carried out by injection or infusion; it is shown in the case of severe infections many sensitive to tobramycin gram-negative bacteria, in particular in the case of septicemia, infections of the lower respiratory tract, michaelbailey, intraperitoneal infections, skin infections, soft tissue and bone, osteomyelitis, septic arthritis, bacterial endocarditis, meningitis caused by gram-negative bacteria and infections in patients with immunosuppression.

In the case of severe infections of the respiratory tract the tobramycin can be entered by inhalation. For example, in Germany there is a drug TOBI (supplied on the market Chiron), which contains tobramycin in the form of an aqueous solution without antioxidants and which can be entered by inhalation in aerosol form. In this form, the active agent can be used to treat infections of the lower respiratory tract, caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. patients suffering from mucoviscidosis or cystic fibrosis. Additional applications for which carry out clinical tests include the treatment of bacterial infections in cases of bronchiectasis and in patients with artificial ventilation of the lungs, and also in cases of tuberculosis.

Cystic fibrosis (or cystic fibrosis) is one of the most common congenital metabolic disorders. It is autosomal-recessive hereditary multi-organ syndrome caused by loss of transmembrane regulatory protein cystic fibrosis (cystic fibrosis transmembrane regutator, CFTR), represents the future of a regulatory protein transport chloride across cell membranes, increase in the viscosity of the secrets of the body. The defect of the enzyme is localized on chromosome 7. The genetic defect affects, in particular, glands of external secretion, resulting in many organs form a viscous mucus that blocks the lungs, pancreas and biliary tract. Approximately 90 percent of the problems associated with the respiratory system. Chronic pneumonia often occurs when viscous mucus prevents the destruction of bacteria. In particular Pseudomonas aeruginosa tends to infect the lungs of patients with cystic fibrosis. This causes a sort of vicious circle: the growth and reproduction of bacteria increase mucus secretion and result in infection and inflammation of the respiratory tract, and it becomes increasingly difficult to ensure the access of oxygen to the respiratory tract. Many patients suffering from cystic fibrosis, chronic inflammation of the lungs results in progressive destruction of lung tissues and severe disorders respiratory, which in the end, over 90% of patients die.

The state of the art

The treatment of patients suffering from cystic fibrosis, by introducing into the lungs active agent tobramycin currently carried out mainly with the use of a drug TOBI. In contrast to injecor is subject to the preparations of tobramycin TOBI does not contain a stabilizing additive antioxidants, which inhalation can trigger coughing or asthma.

TOBI spray in aerosol form and ingaliruut via atomizer. Depending on the design and type sprayer reach very different results. The effectiveness of pulmonary introduction depends, in particular, the particle size of the obtained aerosol, which varies considerably depending on the device used. A pharmaceutical manufacturer, Chiron particularly recommends for treatment with TOBI jet nebulizer PARI LC PLUSTMin combination with the compressor Pari MasterTM(both are available on the market PARI).

The literature describes other preparations of tobramycin for inhalation. In U.S. patent 5508269 described preparation containing approximately 200 mg to 400 mg of tobramycin in approximately 5 ml. as excipients, giving isotonicity, it contains sodium chloride in the amount of approximately 0,225%, and the pH of the drug increased to approximately 5.5 to 6.5. For administration of the drug should be sprayed through a jet or ultrasonic nebulizer with obtaining aerosol having a particle size of from 1 to 5 microns.

In U.S. patent 6083922 described in somewhat similar drugs active agent tobramycin, which, however, is used to treat infections caused by Mycobacterium tubrculosis. Approximately 80 to 300 mg of active agent is added in a single dose to a volume of approximately 3 to 5 ml of the pH Value was adjusted to 5.5-7.0 and to give isotonicity again using sodium chloride.

The drug tobramycin described in U.S. patent 6387886, also has a very similar composition. It contains approximately from 250 to 350 mg of active agent in 5 ml of sodium chloride solution, the pH is again adjusted to 5.5-6.5. Intended application is the treatment of chronic bronchitis caused by susceptible to tobramycin pathogens.

In WO 03/004005 described preparation having a content of tobramycin 75 mg/ml and the concentration of sodium chloride of 0.45%. In contrast to the above cited documents, according to this publication requires a pH of from 4.0 to 5.5. As another sign indicated the osmotic pressure in the range from 250 to 450 mosmol/L. In the preferred embodiment, the preparation has a pH of 5.2 and an osmotic pressure of from 280 to 350 mosmol/L.

In the practical use of all these drugs tobramycin exhibit various disadvantages. First, their portability is not particularly satisfactory. This is probably caused by the active agent and is compounded by the affective state of the respiratory tract of patients with cystic fibrosis. Second, patients need prolonged inhalation of one on the PS active agent (currently the most common is the inhalation of 300 mg of tobramycin in 5 ml of liquid), namely, for about 15-20 minutes when using the inkjet dispenser (depending on device). This is particularly difficult for critically ill patients. Another disadvantage of conventional drugs is their taste, which many patients perceive as bad; of course, this is mainly caused by the active agent, i.e. drops of aerosol that fall into the oral cavity and larynx, and then mixed with the saliva and reach the taste buds of the tongue. This occurs with significant inhalation aerosol droplets.

To solve at least the problems of long time of inhalation, and the resulting burden for patients in WO 02/094217 proposed the use of a more concentrated solution of tobramycin in which a single dose can be Invalidovna faster due to the smaller volume. Applied amount should be reduced to no more than 4, preferably up to not more than 3.5 ml the concentration of the active agent, in turn, must be reduced to approximately 200 mg/ml, which is achieved by the time of inhalation is less than 10 minutes. Especially preferred concentration of the active agent from 90 to 120 mg/ml and the time of inhalation is less than approximately 6 minutes. However, the latter should be achieved by used the I instead of the usual spray of modern devices with particularly high emissions of aerosol. For example, recommended a stronger compressors, which can be connected with the conventional spray nozzles or piezoelectric atomizers, which thanks to the principle of his actions demonstrate better performance. However, in a more detailed discussion of the examples in this document describes only one drug that has a concentration of active agent in more than 60 mg/ml, namely preparation containing 420 mg tobramycin in 3.5 ml, which corresponds to the concentration of the active agent 120 mg/ml At the same time, this product contains non-specific excipient to bring the pH to 6.0±0,5 and 0,225% sodium chloride. However, it turned out that this drug cannot be used effectively with the selected tools that have been optimized for short-time inhalation. In clinical research the number of active agent found in plasma and saliva, was no more than after inhalation of 300 mg of tobramycin in the form of medicines TOBI. Thus, the time of inhalation can be reduced compared to TOBI (300 mg) from 18.1 to 9.7 minutes, but only at the expense of bioavailability.

One of the disadvantages of the known preparations of tobramycin for inhalation is suboptimal tolerability in the respiratory tract. Compared with the use of a sprayed solution is lacebo reaction, such as cough and respiratory tract irritation, more frequent inhalation of TOBI or known experimental preparations of tobramycin. Still not been fully clarified whether this effect is only active agent, which can hardly be influenced, or a combination with some conventional auxiliary substances contributing to the incompatibility or can contribute to its reduction.

Description of the invention

Thus, there is a need in the preparations of tobramycin for effective, acceptable to the patient an effective and tolerable inhalation. In particular, there is a need for drugs of this active agent that can be introduced quickly and efficiently using highly-effective inhalers and well tolerated and which does not possess the disadvantages of the known drugs. The objective of the invention is to provide such an improved drugs.

This problem is solved by proposing preparations according to claim 1 of the claims. An additional problem solution will become apparent from the other claims and from the following description. Drugs can improve pulmonary antibiotic therapy of patients suffering from cystic fibrosis; however, they can also be used as solutions for injection or for matnog the treatment of infections affecting the upper part of the respiratory tract.

Declared sterile liquid medication in the form of an aqueous solution for injection or inhalation, which contains approximately 80 to 120 mg of tobramycin per ml, and optionally acidic excipient and the concentration of sodium chloride to a maximum of approximately 2 mg/ml

In this context, an aqueous solution means a solution or a colloidal solution in which the solvent consists wholly or mainly of water. Sterile means that the product meets, in respect of its sterility, the relevant requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia (Pharm. Eur.). The tobramycin is a substance O-3-amino-3-deoxy-α-D-glyukopiranozil(1→4)-O-[2,6-diamino-2,3,6-trideoxy-α-D-RIBO-hexopyranosyl-(1→6)]-2-deoxystreptamine, including its salts, complexes, conjugates, and derivatives. Installed a concentration of approximately from 80 to 120 mg/ml, however, refers to the basis of tobramycin. It should be noted that in practice of course there are slight deviations from the nominal concentration, which is absolutely normal and acceptable. Thus, for example, for a drug with an estimated concentration of 80 mg/ml, the actual concentration of 78.5 mg/ml may be within product specifications. Accordingly, the pharmacist is logically permissible deviation of the concentration of the active agent in the range from 80 to 120 mg/ml is included in the scope of the invention.

Acidic excipient is a physiologically acceptable acid or acidic salt, which brought the pH of the drug. In accordance with the invention, sodium chloride, or not present at all or present only in concentrations up to 2 mg/ml using the same portability as the active agent.

It was found that the drugs prepared in accordance with claim 1, perfect for spraying in conventional sprayers. Aerosols can be Invalidovna quickly and efficiently. In particular, in combination with possible features, which are described below, can be achieved greatly improved, acceptable to the patient, treatment of pulmonary infections in cases of cystic fibrosis.

In order to achieve comfortable, safe, and effective inhalation of a therapeutic dose of tobramycin should take into account various parameters, some of which are associated with the drug. One of the crucial parameters is the concentration of the active agent in inhalation solution. Market the product TOBI at a concentration of 300 mg/5 ml is clearly a lower concentration of the active agent than that required in accordance with the present invention. Due to the low concentration it is hardly possible to enter inhalation solution TOBI for Korotkov the time of inhalation. Although, apparently, preferably the time of inhalation, comprising a maximum of approximately 6-8 minutes, and particularly preferably the time of inhalation, comprising a maximum of 4-5 minutes, to achieve a high degree of patient compliance regime and regimen for inhalation 5 ml TOBI in combination with spray recommended in the instructions for use, requires at least approximately 15-20 minutes. Even if you ignore this recommendation and to use a more powerful spray, and is unlikely to be achieved in the desired time inhalation because of the low concentration of the active agent should be sprayed a relatively large amount of liquid.

Unexpectedly, it was found that the concentration of the active agent should not choose arbitrarily high within the solubility of the active agent and that should not be exceeded is approximately 120 mg/ml Thus, it was found that with increasing concentrations of tobramycin surface tension of the solution can be maintained within the desired range of approximately 70 to 76 mn/m, but the dynamic viscosity, which is equally important for dispersion increases significantly and has a negative effect on the spray. Thus, aqueous solutions of tobramycin, having a pH of from 6.0 to 6.5, have 50% more viscosity of around 2.9 MPa· (C) when the concentration of the active agent 180 mg/ml compared with a solution having a concentration of 100 mg/ml (approximately 1.8 MPa·). Comparable solutions having a concentration of tobramycin 120 mg/ml, have a viscosity of approximately 2.1 MPa·and they can still spray with almost the same efficiency as solutions having a concentration of 100 mg/ml under standard conditions prescribed by the present invention have a viscosity of about 1.4 to 2.3 MPa·and preferably a viscosity in the range from about 1.6 to 2.0 MPa·c. The most preferred viscosity of approximately 1.8 MPa·C.

The choice and amount of agent that gives isotonicity, has a special impact on local tolerability. The sodium chloride contained in products supplied to the market product TOBI, also used or recommended for use in almost all of the preparations described in the literature, for example in WO 03/004005, where the use of 0.45% (wt./about.) sodium chloride, and in WO 02/094217 where it is preferable to use 0,225% (wt./vol.). However, experiments by inhalation, carried out by the inventors have demonstrated that a low concentration of sodium chloride from 0.0 to 0.2% (wt./about.) is less annoying and optimally compatible with other required and possible ingredients. In one preferred is oplasty of the invention, sodium chloride is present at a concentration of less than 0.2% (wt./vol.), preferably at a concentration of 0.17% (wt./vol.). In yet another embodiment, the sodium chloride is not present, except ubiquitary quantities of sodium chloride, which may also be contained in pharmaceutical water quality. In yet another embodiment of the drug as an agent, giving isotonicity, contains essentially neutral salt, which is sodium chloride, such as sodium sulfate or sodium phosphate. However, in this case, salts other than salts of sodium, even more preferred. So, for some salts of calcium and magnesium is known that they can have a positive or a subsidiary effect of inhalation solutions of active agents, perhaps because they counteract local irritation caused by introduction, and have a bronchodilator effect, which is currently postulated in the clinical literature (for example, see R. Hughes et al., Lancet. 2003; 361 (9375):2114-7), and/or because they inhibit the adhesion of microorganisms to proteoglycans of the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract, so indirectly supported mucociliary clearance as a natural protective mechanism of the body against microbes (.W.Tsang et al., Eur. Resp. 2003, 21, 932-938). Particularly preferred magnesium sulfate, which has excellent pulmonary portability and can be inhalieren without the claim of any problems, and calcium chloride (1-10 mmol). If the last action should be strengthened, consideration may be given heparin or phytohemagglutinin, although these substances can certainly not provide the contribution to osmollnosti, which was described for mineral salts.

As an alternative to neutral mineral salts, as agents, giving isotonicity, can be used physiologically acceptable organic excipients. Particularly useful water-soluble substances with a relatively low molecular weight, for example a molecular weight less than 300, or, even better, less than 200, and with correspondingly high osmotic activity. Examples of such excipients are sugars and sugar alcohols, in particular mannitol and sorbitol.

The number of the selected agent, giving isotonicity must be defined in order to obtain osmollnosti from about 150 to 350 mosmol/l, whereas the content of tobramycin and acidic excipients and the content of other possible auxiliary substances in the product. Moreover, the preferred osmollnosti in the range from approximately 200 to 300 mosmol/L. In another embodiment, the drug has osmollnosti from about 230 to 280 mosmol/HP/p>

Acidic excipient in the drug simultaneously serves several objectives. First, it brings the pH to the range that is physiologically well tolerated (aqueous solution of tobramycin base gives the main reaction, which is unfavorable for inhalation). For portability, the pH of the drug, however, must be brought to values approximately from 5.0 to 7.0, preferably to a pH of from 5.5 to 6.5. Secondly, in relation to physico-chemical and chemical properties of the drug, particularly with respect to chemical stability of the contained active agent, especially a favorable pH in the above range from 5.0 to 7.0, or from 5.5 to 6.5. If desired compromise between a particularly high stability and acceptable tolerability, can also be selected pH in the acidic region to approximately pH 4.0. The use of acidic excipients ensures that the active agent tobramycin was present in the product at least partially in the form of salts.

Especially useful excipients to lower pH values represent a strong inorganic acid, in particular sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid. Additionally, there may be used inorganic or organic acid, with an intermediate force is also acid salt, for example, phosphoric acid, citric acid, tartaric acid, succinic acid, fumaric acid, lysine, methionine, sour hydrogen phosphate, sodium or potassium, lactic acid, and so forth. However, the most preferred sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid.

The drug may contain a surfactant as an excipient. To stabilize the dispersed solid or liquid particles or to colloidal solubilisate usually poorly soluble active agent, for example, in the form of micelles or in the form of so-called microemulsions, liquid pharmaceutical preparations using surface-active substances. To achieve the specific surface tension can be used surfactants that are particularly important for optimal and reproducible spray.

In the preferred embodiment of the preparation according to the invention has a surface tension at standard conditions, i.e. at room temperature and under normal pressure of approximately from 70 to 76 mn/m In yet another embodiment, the drug has a surface tension of about 72 mn/m, These surface tension facilitates effective dispersion by conventional sprayers with a high proportion of respirable droplets, having the appropriate diameter to a maximum of 5 μm. This can also be achieved without the addition of surface-active substances.

However, if the drug must be adapted for use in a particular type of spray, the surface tension can be reduced to values below about 70 mn/m, possibly even up to values below about 55 mn/m at room temperature. Even when the type of surfactant, the surface tension should be not less than approximately 30-35 mn/m Surface tension is reduced by surface-active substances, may be useful in improving the ability to spray aerosols in the lungs, which in turn can have a positive impact on the efficiency of the application.

As it has been unexpectedly discovered by the inventors that the addition of surfactants may have an additional beneficial effect: sensory quality, that is, in particular, the taste of the drug during inhalation can be improved by the addition of suitable surface-active substances. However, the surfactants must be pharmaceutically acceptable and suitable for application by introducing into the lungs. Examples of such surfactants are Tween®(in particular, Tween®80), tyloxapol, vitamin E D-alfatek is freelolitamovies 1000 succinate (vitamin E TPGS) and phospholipids, such as hydrogenated lecithins.

The amount used depends on the intended effect: if in the first place it is supposed superior ability to spray in the lungs, particularly useful application of Tween®80 and phospholipids in relatively high concentrations, comprising from about 0.01 to 0.1% (wt./vol.). If, in addition, must be masked by the taste of the active agent should preferably be the use of higher concentrations of the components, for example, from about 0.2 to 2% (wt./vol.). Especially preferred combination of tyloxapol and phospholipid, such as dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC), and the concentration of tyloxapol should be approximately from 0.5 to 1.5% (wt./vol.), most preferably approximately 1.0% (wt./vol.), and the concentration of DMPC or comparable phospholipid should be approximately from 0.2 to 1.0% (wt./vol.), particularly preferably about 0.5% (wt./vol.). It was unexpectedly found that the combination of surface-active substances does not result in an increase, but rather decrease local irritation in the respiratory tract or bronchostenosis.

The combination of tyloxapol and phospholipid, in particular DMPC, together with the active agent tobramycin is particularly useful from the point of view of galenical preparations. The tee is akapol has only limited compatibility with the active agent, that is within the desired concentration ranges of tyloxapol and tobramycin resulting in the deposition. However, this incompatibility can be reduced or eliminated by combining with DMPC.

Depending on the type and configuration of the spray density of the drug may also affect the effectiveness of the spray. It should be in the range from approximately 1.0 to 1.2 g/ml, preferably approximately from 1.05 to 1.1 g/ml, for example 1.07 g/ml

The preparation according to the invention can be carried out, for example, by dissolving one by one acidic excipients, the active agent and the agent, giving isotonicity, under aseptic conditions in a measured amount of water for injection. Depending on whether or not surface-active substances, and which surfactants are used, after the addition can be carried out stage homogenization. In the preferred embodiment of the method of preparation includes a cooling solution during the dissolution of the active agent in the aqueous phase or in close temporal relationship with the dissolution of the active agent in the aqueous phase. Through this active agent may be further stabilized and protected from destruction. Stability can also be favorably Provo is whether treatment in a protective atmosphere.

The filling is preferably carried out under aseptic conditions in a single dose or mnogorazovye containers. Suitable primary packaging represents, for example, polypropylene or polyethylene bottles (PP/PE bottles) and cycloolefine copolymer blister (SOS blisters). Sealed plastic containers, such as PP or PE bottles, can be produced, filled and sealed, for example, preferably by technology blow-fill-seal (blow fill seal method) in a single process. Produced in this way, the container is particularly suitable for liquid products having a volume from about 0.2 ml In a particularly favorable for the patient embodiment they can be produced with a cap that can be removed by turning or bending. Thus obtained hole through which can be extracted liquid contents may be designed so that it can be connected to the connector Luer or connector with Luer lock. The hole may be circular and have a diameter that essentially corresponds to the external diameter of the inserted connector Luer. Thus, a conventional syringe connector Luer can be tightly attached to the container, for example, to select the contents of the container and transfer it into the sprayer is whether to to mix the contents of the container with the contents of the syringe, and then transfer them into the sprayer. As another alternative, a plastic container may be designed so that after removal of the closing element, you can attach tightly enough to the connecting element for input of liquid in appropriately adapted dispenser, whereby the reservoir of the nebulizer can be directly filled with the drug.

Plastic containers of this type have advantages because they can be easily applied embossing. This makes unnecessary the presence of paper labels, which is desirable in order to avoid migration of the components of glue, paper or printing ink through the wall of the container in the drug. In addition, using this embossing important information may become available for patients with impaired vision. Embossing can contain various information, such as the designation of the party, the expiry date, the designation of the product, instructions for use and one or more than one markup doses. Especially in the case of patients-children, when it is often desirable flexible dosing depending on age and growth, many of the markings of the volume can facilitate the extraction of the desired dose without additional medium is in, whereby can be reduced the risk of dosing errors.

In yet another embodiment of the invention proposed pharmaceutical kits which contain two liquid component or, alternatively, a solid and a liquid component in a separate immediate packings with a common secondary packaging in which the contents of the components are adjusted so that by combining and mixing can be prepared drug tobramycin according to the invention, as described above, which is ready for use. The liquid component or one of the liquid component contains a solvent and possibly additional contained excipients, whereas the solid component (or another liquid component) contains the active agent (tobramycin) in a concentrated and stable form. Such kits may have the advantage that they are particularly high pharmaceutical stability and the ability to store, but the ease of handling, and thus to facilitate easy handling for the patient. Alternatively, the kits can be designed so that medical or pharmaceutical trained personnel (for example, in a hospital pharmacy) can be prepared from them the drugs ready for use.

In accordance with another variant of the invention the proposed mogogos the new containers, which contains the above product and are designed with the possibility of aseptic extract per dose. Thus, mnogorazovyj the container may be a glass or plastic container such as a vial or bottle for infusion elastomer cover which can be punctured by a syringe, or it may represent a complex container equipped with a device for dispensing and retrieval.

One of the particular advantages of parenteral multi-dose containers in relation to the preparations of tobramycin for inhalation is flexibility, which makes it easy to adjust the dose according to individual needs without losing significant quantities of the drug, as may be the case in single dose containers after opening. In hospitals and medical institutions patients thus can be treated in a most effective and potentially cost-effective by the selection of an individual dose. Also can easily be taken into account special therapeutic requirements of individual patients.

In principle, any spray used to treat, can be used for spraying of the drug. Tested inkjet nozzles in principle as useful as a more modern ultrasonic or piezoelectric dispensers, but they are bladud gap with regard to the time of inhalation. The advantage of inkjet nozzles is that they are already widely available and can be profitably produced. Many patients are already accustomed to using conventional spray nozzles. In some modern jet nebulizers (e.g. PARI LC PLUS®and PARI LC STAR®are mechanisms by which the spray is regulated in accordance with the type of respiration of the patient, so that inhalation is available the maximum possible share of the generated aerosol.

Especially preferred aerosolize drug through modern piezoelectric atomizer, in particular by spray-type eFlowTMPARI. A special advantage for patients using this device (or similar device) is in a relatively shorter time compared with alternative ways. This device not only sprays the quantity of liquid per unit time, but also creates an aerosol of high quality with a high proportion of small respirable aerosol droplets.

Therapeutically favorable result is highly dependent on reliable and adequate availability of an active agent in the lungs. Achieving this within a reasonable period of time promotes patient compliance with the regimen and the regimen. Patients FAV is reading short periods of inhalation and inhalation, comprising more than about 6-8 minutes, may adversely affect the patient's compliance regime and regimen. Particularly desirable time of inhalation, comprising more than about 10 minutes. In contrast, from the point of view of the patient, particularly preferably time inhalations is less than approximately 5-6 minutes.

Traditional treatment tobramycin drug TOBI, which contains 300 mg of tobramycin in 5 ml of an aqueous solution is sprayed through a jet nebulizer recommended in the instructions for use, including a device PARI LC PLUS®which in practice requires a sufficiently long period of time, approximately 15-20 minutes. The fraction of the inhaled aerosol droplets having a diameter less than 5 μm, in this treatment, approximately 60% of the generated aerosol (measured by laser diffraction using a MasterSizer X, Malvern). Taking into account all the losses of active agent occurring in the atomizer, with the exhalation of the patient and the settling of aerosol in the upper part of the respiratory tract, it can be assumed that only approximately 60-80 mg of tobramycin reach the patient's lungs (respirable dose, RD).

In contrast, the preparations according to the present invention in combination with piezoelectric is Kim spray reach significantly higher speeds of ejection. This applies in particular to spray using a spray gun with a vibrating membrane type eFlowTM, which at the same time produce large fraction of the inhaled aerosol droplets, namely approximately 75%. In addition, design-related losses within the device is less than in the case of inkjet dispenser. Thus, a smaller amount of active agent sufficient to cook the same amount of active agent delivered into the lungs. Thus, we can assume, for example, on the basis of in vitro data that the drug of the present invention, contains only 200 mg of tobramycin in 2 ml solution for inhalation, when spraying with the use of the device eFlowTMresults in the availability of approximately 70-80 mg of active agent in the lungs (respirable dose, RD), then there must be biologically equivalent to the usual treatment with 5 ml of TOBI 300 mg of Particular advantage for patients is in a shorter period of time required for inhalation 2 ml of the preparation according to the present invention using the eFlow deviceTMin experimental in vitro it takes approximately 3-4 minutes, whereas in practice it takes about 4-5 minutes, but in any case less than 6 minutes, which represents a significant difference in cf is the ranking with conventional treatment.

Thus, in accordance with the present invention, it is preferable to prepare the drug in relation to its pharmaceutical and, in particular, physico-chemical parameters for optimalnoe sputtering using a piezoelectric atomizer or nebulizer with the vibrating membrane, such as the eFlow deviceTMso as to provide a particularly significant benefit for patients from the point of view of the significantly reduced time inhalation.

In yet another embodiment, the preparation adapted for use in aerosol form for the treatment of upper respiratory tract. In this case, it is also possible topical treatment of infections caused by sensitive to tobramycin pathogens. In particular, the mucous membrane of the nasal and oral cavity, as well as the mucous membrane of the sinuses, the maxillary and frontal sinuses in principle amenable aerosol treatment. Most easily the aerosol reaches the mucous membranes of the mouth and the nasal cavity. In this case, can be used mechanical sprayers, such as sprayers, often used for nasal and oral sprays. Especially adapted jet, ultrasonic or piezoelectric dispensers, however, can be used to significantly improved hydration of the mucous membrane of the oral or nasal cavity is asalaamu drug.

Effective use of the spray in relation to the less well-ventilated cavities of the upper respiratory tract is more complex. However, the frontal and paranasal sinuses are often the site of infection. Typically, these infections tend to treat otharkivajushchimi and anti means that it is not always beneficial. Severe cases additionally treated with systemic antibiotic therapy, which, however, is not tolerated by all patients well.

Simple nasal inhalation drug sprayed active agent leads him to the area of the sinuses; however, the majority of aerosol passes the openings of the sinuses (the mouth) no penetration of any significant share in the sinus.

However, recently became available especially adapted inkjet nozzles, through which the sinuses can be achieved much better than previously. These sprayers have nasal tip to the flow direction of the spray in the nose. If inhalation aerosol uses only one nostril, the other nostril should be closed using a suitable device. In addition, these dispensers are characterized by the fact that they create a spray with pulsating pressure. Pulsating pressure results in increased ventilation of the sinuses, so the simultaneous inhalation aerosol may RA is which are gathering dust more effectively in these cavities. Examples of such dispensers are described in DE 10239321 B3. In the preferred embodiment of the preparation according to the present invention used to prepare drugs for use by one of these devices for the treatment of infections of the upper respiratory tract, in particular, by using the device type of the PARI Sinus.


The following examples serve to illustrate the invention by means of a number of selected embodiments.

Example 1: Preparation of solutions for inhalation containing 100 mg/ml of tobramycin

11,08 g of tobramycin, 5,41 g of sulfuric acid (96%), 0.2 g of sodium chloride and 90,95 g of water for injection is used as the starting materials. All stages carried out in aseptic conditions and in an atmosphere of nitrogen gas. First, take water, which is added to the sulfuric acid. Then add the sodium chloride and the active agent. The mixture is stirred until complete dissolution of all solid components, which is determined visually. This gives approximately 100 ml of a solution which has a pH of approximately 6,0, osmollnosti approximately 0.22 Osmol/l dynamic viscosity of approximately 1.9 IPA·and a surface tension of approximately 71 mn/m, This solution is sterile filtered and filled into a bottle for infusion volume of 100 ml This bottle tightly closed amenable procelian the Yu elastomeric stopper and cover aluminum cover.

Example 2: the Spraying of the solution for inhalation containing 100 mg/ml tobramycin, piezoelectric nebulizer
