  • Patent number: 5543393
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a cyclosporin-containing powder composition which comprises cyclosporin, a non-ionic hydrophilic surfactant and a porous carrier. In addition, the present invention relates to a method for preparing the cyclosporin-containing powder composition which comprises dissolving cyclosporin and a non-ionic hydrophilic surfactant in an organic solvent, adding a porous carrier to the resulting solution and then evaporating the organic solvent from the mixture. The powder composition of the present invention is stable and does not require a special manufacturing technique when it is formulated. In addition, since the powder composition of the present invention does not contain an organic solvent, the necessity of a special package is excluded. Furthermore, the composition of the present invention provides an improved bioavailability which results in decrease of a single dosage, and therefore, can contribute to the alleviation of the side effects associated with cyclosporin.
