  • Patent number: 11278501
    Abstract: A method and system of forming a pharmaceutical dosage form within a portion of a blister packaging. The method includes the steps of providing a blister packaging for the dosage form with depressions. A predetermined amount of a drug-containing powder material comprising drug-containing particles is deposited into a substantially uniform powder layer within the depressions. A binding liquid is then deposited in a pattern on the powder layer within the depressions, to bind the particles of the powder layer and form an incremental wetted layer. Excess solvent in the binding material can be removed to form an incremental bound layer. These steps are repeated in sequence at least one or more times to form the pharmaceutical dosage form within the blister packaging.

  • Publication number: 20220054409
    Abstract: A rapidly-orodispersible dosage form comprising a porous, bound-powder matrix and one or more internal cavities is provided, as well as three-dimensional printing methods for making the same. Each internal cavity is configured to contain one or more payloads, particularly pharmaceutical medicaments, while isolating the payloads from the external environment outside of the dosage form. Each payload can be contained within its cavity in its native form without having to be combined with the bound-powder matrix or binding liquid. Dosage forms can disintegrate in water or saliva in less than two minutes, independently of the payload(s) or medicament(s) contained within. The dosage forms can be formed as unitary tablets, or as two-piece tablets comprising a container body and a lidding body that are secured together to isolate the one or more cavities and their payloads inside.
