The invention relates to the pharmaceutical industry, namely the solid dosage form of atorvastatin with hypolipidemic and hypocholesterolemic activity, and to the way it was received.

Atorvastatin [R(R*, R*)]-2-(4-forfinal)-beta,Delta-dihydroxy-(1-methylethyl)-3-phenyl-4-[(phenylamino)carbonyl]-pyrrol-1-heptane acid (as calcium salt) is a hypolipidemic agent from a group of statins. Statins (inhibitors of HMG-CoA reductase) are widely used for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia and hyperlipidemia. Their inhibitory action is based on agonism towards reductase HMG-CoA, which is a decrease of the concentration of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) to a greater extent than when using drugs other pharmacological groups, lower cholesterol. In addition, statins normalize the concentration of triglycerides in patients with hypertriglyceridemia.

Statins are well tolerated by patients and is characterized by reliable performance. Clinical studies in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) and without it, as well as high and normal cholesterol levels consistently demonstrated that statins reduce the relative risk of serious complications from coronary heart disease by approximately 30%, with an absolute positive E. the effect is stronger pronounced in the group of patients with a high baseline risk. This result is explained by the positive effect of statins on plasma lipoproteins on endothelial function, structure and stability of plaques, as well as suppression of thrombosis and inflammation. Mechanisms that do not depend on reduction of LDL may play an important role in achieving positive clinical effect in the use of statins, so maybe the doctors consider them not only as medicines to reduce blood lipid levels, but also as antiatherogenic tools.

The appearance of inhibitors of the reductase 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA), or statins, have revolutionized the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. Statins have become the drugs most often prescribed for the treatment of this condition due to their effectiveness in reducing LDL, as well as good tolerance and safety.

Statins completely inhibit the reductase HMG-CoA enzyme that catalyzes the step that limits the rate of the biosynthesis of cholesterol (Blizzard VI Handbook on clinical pharmacology of cardiovascular drugs. - M.: Binom, 2002). This reduces the concentration of cholesterol in hepatocytes, which increases the expression of LDL receptors in the liver, which removes LDL and its precursors from the circulating blood.

Statins can inhibit the liver Sint is C apolipoprotein b-100, as well as the synthesis and secretion of lipoproteins triglyceride-rich (Oganov RG, Akhmedzhanov NM Atorvastatin is a new inhibitor of HMG-COA reductase inhibitor for the treatment of atherosclerosis and hyperlipidemia // Cardiology. - 2000. - So 40, No. 7).

Available for clinical use of statins atorvastatin is one of the most powerful manifestations lipidemias effect.

Atorvastatin is used for the treatment of primary hypercholesterolemia (heterozygous familial and non-family hypercholesterolemia, Fredrickson type IIA), combined (mixed) hyperlipidemia (Fredrickson type IIb and III), dysbetalipoproteinemia (Fredrickson type III) (as a Supplement to the diet), a family of endogenous hypertriglyceridemia (Fredrickson type IV)that are resistant to diet treatments; homozygous hereditary hypercholesterolemia (as an adjunct to lipid-lowering therapy, including autohemotransfusions purified LDL from the blood); diseases of the cardiovascular system (eg, patients without clinical manifestations of coronary artery disease but with increased risk factors for its occurrence - the age of 55 years, nicotine dependence, hypertension, genetic predisposition), including background dyslipidemia - secondary prevention to reduce total risk of death, infarction, stroke, re-hospitalization for angina and the need for revascularization.

The mechanism of action of atorvastatin is associated mainly with infringement of synthesis of cholesterol in the liver at the stage of avalonbay acid by selective competitive inhibition of HMG-COA reductase. Atorvastatin reduces levels of cholesterol and lipoproteins in the plasma due to disorders of cholesterol synthesis in the liver and increasing the number and activity of hepatic LDL receptors on the cell surface, which leads to increased capture and catabolism of LDL. At the same time increasing the level of high density lipoprotein (HDL) and apolipoprotein A. the Inhibitory effect of atorvastatin against HMG-COA reductase by about 70% determined by the activity of its circulating metabolites. Atorvastatin lowers cholesterol levels in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, which is usually not amenable to therapy with lipid-lowering drugs.

Atorvastatin is rapidly absorbed after oral administration. The maximum concentration in plasma is reached after 1-2 hours, the bioavailability of the tablets of atorvastatin compared with the solution is 95-99%. The absolute bioavailability of atorvastatin equal to about 14%and systemic bioavailability inhibitory activity against HMG-COA reductase - OK is around 30%. Low systemic bioavailability due to presystemic metabolism in the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and at the first passage through the liver. When atorvastatin in the evening the concentration in the plasma is lower than when taken in the morning. However, the degree of reduction of LDL cholesterol does not depend on time of taking the drug during the day. The relationship of plasma proteins 98%.

Atorvastatin is metabolized mainly in the liver under the action of cytochrome P450 4 with the formation of metabolites (ortho - and parahydroxylated derivatives, products of beta-oxidation). Atorvastatin and its metabolites are excreted mainly in the bile. However, atorvastatin is not subjected to severe intestinal-hepatic recirculation. The average half-life of atorvastatin is approximately 14 hours With a urine output of less than 2% of the administered dose of the medication.

The recommended starting dose of atorvastatin is 10 mg 1 time per day. Depending on the initial level of cholesterol dose picked individually and it can vary from 10 to 80 mg/day. Due to the high efficiency of atorvastatin calcium as a hypolipidemic and hypocholesterolemic means its content in solid dosage forms is quite low (less than 10% wt. of the total weight). To prevent segregation of the assets is the main and auxiliary substances in the manufacturing process of solid dosage forms often resort to the stage of granulation, which greatly complicates the process of obtaining and increases the cost of medicines (EN 2332211, 2008, US 6126971, 2000, EN 2325903, 2008). In this regard, the preparation of solid dosage forms of atorvastatin without the stage of granulation is preferred.

The closest analogue of the claimed invention is a solid dosage form, registered under the name "Liprimar", which contains, wt%:

Known dosage form contains a large number of auxiliary components, and the way of obtaining includes a step of granulation, which leads to complication of the process and increase the cost of medicines.

The present invention solves the problem of expansion of the means stated purpose - solid dosage forms containing atorvastatin, by creating solid dosage forms of atorvastatin calcium using available auxiliary substances economical and simple instrumental in the execution of the method. Solid dosage form stated purpose must meet the requirements of the State Pharmacopoeia XI, issue 2.

The problem is solved in that the solid dosage form having hypolipidemic and hypocholesterolemic activity, consists of a nucleus, containing as active substance atorvastatin in the form of its calcium salt and auxiliary components: lactose "Ektapress Spraydry", microcrystalline cellulose (MCC), calcium carbonate, CROs is carmellose sodium (Primerose), stearic acid and/or its salt in the following ratio, wt.%:

Atorvastatin calcium1,5-20
Microcrystalline cellulose2-25
Calcium carbonate5-30
Croscarmellose sodium0,5-5
Stearic acid and/or its salt0,5-1,04
Lactose "Ektapress Spraydry"the rest,

as well as shell, which is composed of polyvinyl alcohol, titanium dioxide, talc, polyethylene glycol, silicone emulsion, and optionally the dye in the following ratio, wt.%:

Titanium dioxide10-35
Talc5-25
The polyethylene glycol6-28
Dye0-3
Silicone emulsion0,05-4
Polyvinyl alcohol : rest

As part of the claimed solid dosage forms such as lactose proposed to use a special brand of lactose: lactose "Ektapress Spraydry". Lactose "Ektapress Spraydry" is lactose obtained by the method of spray drying, is composed of not less than 98% of particles with a size of 250 μm, with a water content of 4.5-5.5 percent. Lactose "Ektapress Spraydry" has the ability to shrink and excellent flowability, which allows its use as a filler in compositions intended for direct compression (without stage granulation).

In the claimed solid dosage form is reduced in comparison with the prototype of the content of microcrystalline cellulose from 40 to 25 %wt. and less. MCC, once in the stomach, absorbs water and swells, creating in him a feeling of heaviness that can be frustrating for patients, especially the elderly. In this regard, the content decreases ICC in the composition of the dosage form is appropriate.

The task is also solved by a method for producing solid dosage forms of atorvastatin with hypolipidemic and hypocholesterolemic activity. The method includes the mixing of atorvastatin calcium and auxiliary substances - lactose "Ektapress Spraydry", mi is recrystallizes cellulose, calcium carbonate in the mixer for uniform distribution of the components in the total mass, dusting stearic acid and/or its salt in a mixture with sodium croscarmellose and tableting mainly progressive pressing on a rotary tablet press with simultaneous dust obtained tablets-cores. Next tablets-engine cover film-forming suspension comprising polyvinyl alcohol, titanium dioxide, talc, polyethylene glycol, silicone emulsion, and optionally a dye.

Atorvastatin calcium is practically insoluble in water which, of course, complicates the problem of choosing pharmaceutically acceptable and compatible auxiliary components in order to obtain such a dosage form from which it would release occurred at a rather high speed.

On the other hand, the solid dosage form of atorvastatin should have sufficient mechanical strength so as tableting, usually occurs on high-speed presses under pressure, and good stability during storage.

In addition, you must choose among acceptable such targeted supplements that will help get the pill by way of direct pressing (without stage granulation).

Thus, the choice of a pharmaceutically acceptable Zell who's additives to obtain the pharmaceutical composition of atorvastatin in solid dosage form due to the need not only compatibility auxiliary components atorvastatin calcium and opportunity forming a solid tablet by direct compaction, but also achieve high speed of its release to ensure availability for absorption.

Main forming excipients in the composition of the inventive solid dosage forms are lactose "Ektapress Spraydry" and microcrystalline cellulose, which largely determine the rate of release, speed, and completeness of absorption of drug substances, as well as the stability of the tablet during storage.

Molding materials possess good flowability and compressibility, so create the necessary mass and volume and contribute to the preservation of a certain form of pill.

As the alkalizing agent used calcium carbonate. The action of this substance due to its ability to affect the functioning of the digestive system, namely to adjust the pH of the acidic environment of the stomach, thereby increasing the bioavailability and dissolution rate of atorvastatin calcium, which is poorly soluble in water and in acidic environment. Also, many enzymes (pancreatic lipase, ATP-ASE, phosphodiesterase and others) are activated in the presence of calcium carbonate, which is a hydrophilic substance, and it is soluble in the acidic environment of the stomach with the formation of the ion of CA2+. The presence of IO is s Sa 2+in the gastric environment catalyzes the effect of atorvastatin and faster onset of therapeutic effect. In addition, the presence in the composition of the dosage form alkalizing agent (calcium carbonate) is favorable for patients with high acidity of the stomach.

The use of calcium carbonate in the amount specified improves the consistency of the tablet mass, which contributes to the increase of the forming properties of the tablets.

The presence of an alkalizing agent in larger proportions than stated, may cause increased secretions of hydrochloric acid and pepsin, which significantly reduces therapeutic effect of the drug, and in smaller impairs the stability and molding properties of the tablets.

As a substance that provides rapid mechanical destruction of the tablets in liquid environment, promote rapid release of atorvastatin and early beginning of its suction, and hence the provision of therapeutic effect, apply sodium croscarmellose (Primerose).

The action of sodium croscarmellose as disintegrant, due to the fact that due to its high absorption capacity, it increases the porosity of the tablets due to the formation of hydrophilic pores through which the fluid penetrates into the tablet and destroy it.

The presence of sodium croscarmellose in savlon the m number creates optimal conditions for penetration into the pores of the liquid and provides accelerated dissolution of atorvastatin calcium. When using a smaller amount of sodium croscarmellose than stated, decreasing the solubility of the tablet and, consequently, decreases the rate of release of the active substance. Introduction sodium croscarmellose the tablet on stage dusting ensures optimum profile disintegration of the tablets.

As outrivaled substances that protect the press tool from the aggressive actions of the ingredients of the tablet mass on the walls of punches and matrices and giving the tablet weight, the fluidity, the use of stearic acid and/or its salt, preferably magnesium stearate.

The use of stearic acid and/or its salt in the stated quantities ensures even after the tablet mass from the hopper into the matrix that ensures the accurate dosing of atorvastatin calcium, contributes to facilitating the ejection of the tablets from the die, prevents the formation of scratches on the faces of the matrix, prevents sticking of tablet mass on the walls of punches and matrices, as well as the adhesion of particles to each other. In addition, sliding substances remove electrostatic charge from the particles of substances that also improves their flowability.

As stearates (as stearic acid) are hydrophobic substances, they impede the penetration of liquid into the porous structure of the tablet which impairs its raspadaemost. Therefore, more than stated, the quantities of these components affects the raspadaemost pills, and less number impairs the flowability tablet mass.

The coatings are solid dosage forms of atorvastatin was carried out to achieve the following objectives: to give the tablets a beautiful appearance, increase their mechanical strength, to hide the unpleasant taste and smell, to protect from exposure to the environment (light, moisture, oxygen). In the private version of the invention when creating a water-soluble film coating is used as film-forming agent is a special component of Opadry. This is an artificial material that is different ecological plasticity and high strength combined with low weight, and resistance to ultraviolet radiation. This substance not only has all the necessary properties for the shell, but also allows you to get a thin coating. Such shell corrects taste better decays, providing quick and complete release in the body of the active substance from the tablets, increasing the bioavailability of the tablets. It consists of the following components: polyvinyl alcohol, titanium dioxide, talc, polyethylene glycol and sometimes dye.

To improve the quality of the coating as antifoam used the SJ silicone emulsion, which increases water-repellent properties of the coating and its resistance to UV irradiation. The use of silicone emulsions in the claimed amount does not affect the gloss of the coating and does not change color dyes.

The following are examples of compositions of the inventive solid dosage forms of atorvastatin calcium, in particular tablets, coated (for dosage of atorvastatin 10 mg table 1 for dosage 20 mg table 2).
