  • Patent number: 10272061
    Abstract: The present invention provides compositions and methods for administering oxybutynin while minimizing the incidence and/or severity of adverse drug experiences associated with oxybutynin therapy. In one aspect, these compositions and methods provide a lower plasma concentration of oxybutynin metabolites, such as N-desethyloxybutynin, which is presumed to be contributing at least in part to some of the adverse drug experiences, while maintaining sufficient oxybutynin plasma concentration to benefit a subject with oxybutynin therapy. The invention also provides isomers of oxybutynin and its metabolites that meet these characteristics of minimized incidence and/or severity of adverse drug experiences, and maintenance of beneficial and effective therapy for overactive bladder. In some aspects, the composition may be presented in the form of an unoccluded or free form topically administered gel.

  • Patent number: 6730318
    Abstract: The adhesive capability of matrix-type transdermal devices for the delivery of drugs, cosmetics, emollients and the like is altered by incorporating into the pressure-sensitive adhesive an effective amount of a polydiorganosiloxane polymer fluid adhesion adjusting agent. The properties of the pressure-sensitive adhesive are modified to enable a matrix-type patch to adhere temporarily to the skin for a period sufficient to accomplish its desired delivery purpose and then be removed without causing skin damage or irritation and without leaving substantial adhesive residue on the skin. Polydimethylsiloxanes (dimethicones) are preferred adhesion adjusting agents and acrylic-based polymers are preferred pressure-sensitive adhesives. Matrix-type patches containing anti-wrinkle agents formulated with dimethicones in the adhesive for application to areas on the face and particularly around the eyes are especially useful.

  • Publication number: 20030091620
    Abstract: A transdermal drug delivery system is disclosed, which includes a polymer, a drug and an amount of a quaternary ammonium salt that is sufficient to act as a penetration enhancer. The quaternary ammonium salt may also be present in an amount sufficient to act as an irritation reducer. Further, the transdermal drug delivery system may also contain a co-enhancer, which provides a synergistic skin permeation enhancing effect when combined with the quaternary ammonium salt. A method for enhancing the transdermal delivery of a drug is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 6365178
    Abstract: A method of making a pressure sensitive matrix patch for transdermal delivery of a drug is disclosed. The method includes the steps of dissolving a hydrophilic salt form of the drug in the water phase of an aqueous dispersion of a hydrophobic pressure sensitive adhesive, casting the resulting mixture as a thin film, and evaporating the water. The physical stability of the drug in the film is excellent, and crystallization of the drug is inhibited. A method of increasing the transdermal flux of an acidic drug is also disclosed.
