  • Publication number: 20090192185
    Abstract: The invention discloses a medical product for use in a treatment of respiratory disorders, and comprises a metered dose of a tiotropium dry powder formulation, directly loaded and sealed into a container made to act as a dry high barrier seal to prevent the capture and ingress of moisture into the tiotropium powder. The dose of tiotropium is further adapted for inhalation and the container is so tight that the efficacy of the dose when delivered is unaffected by moisture. In a further aspect of the invention a type of inhaler is illustrated, which may accept at least one sealed, moisture-tight container of a dose of tiotropium, to deliver the dose with a consistent fine particle dose, over the expected shelf life of the product.

  • Publication number: 20090188495
    Abstract: The invention discloses a pre-metered dry powder inhaler for use in treatment of respiratory disorders. The inhaler comprises a foil cutter arranged for opening a dry, moisture-tight seal formed by a dose container with tiotropium particles and a seal foil fixed to the container. The tiotropium-containing dose protected from moisture ingress by the moisture-tight barrier seal is loaded in the container using volumetric or electric field dose forming techniques.

  • Publication number: 20070110678
    Abstract: A method for administration and preparation of pharmaceutical dry powder doses are disclosed. The metered dry powder doses are formed from a finely divided dry powder of an selected anticholinergic agent to be used in a dry powder inhaler device. The metered dry powder medicinal dose is arranged as a medicinally effective quantity of the selected medicament onto a dose bed and moisture-tight sealed by using a high barrier seal, for introduction into an inhaler device provided with an Air-razor device for obtaining a fine particle fraction, FPF, of at least 30-50% of delivered powder mass when suction through the inhaler is applied, whereby the dose is delivered to and deposited in the lung of the user during a single inhalation effort.
