  • Patent number: 10350157
    Abstract: The present invention provides novel condensation aerosols for the treatment of disease and/or intermittent or acute conditions. These condensation aerosols have little or no pyrolysis degradation products and are characterized by having an MMAD of between 1-3 microns. These aerosols are made by rapidly heating a substrate coated with a thin film of drug having a thickness of between 0.05 and 20 ?m, while passing a gas over the film, to form particles of a desirable particle size for inhalation. Kits comprising a drug and a device for producing a condensation aerosol are also provided. The device contained in the kit typically, has an element for heating the drug which is coated as a film on the substrate and contains a therapeutically effective dose of a drug when the drug is administered in aerosol form, and an element allowing the vapor to cool to form an aerosol. Also disclosed, are methods for using these aerosols and kits.

  • Patent number: 10314839
    Abstract: The present invention provides a composition comprising an opioid agonist, and a polymer-antagonist conjugate. The polymer-antagonist conjugate preferably does not hydrolyze upon administration to a patient, and does not bind to the opioid receptors. The covalent bond between the polymer and the antagonist in the conjugate is broken over a defined period of time to release the antagonist into the formulation. The released antagonist attenuates the liking of the agonist, thereby eliminating the incentive to the diversion of the medicines.
