  • Patent number: 9187192
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for assembling a plurality of independently formed solid components is provided thereby forming a single delivery vehicle for a pharmaceutical or pharmaceutical-like product. The solid components can be held and fed to the apparatus via a plurality of magazines. Pusher rods and the like can be used for positioning each of the solid components. Where the components are connected via a bonding liquid, a sprayer is provided and compression pins or the like press the components with the bonding liquid together to form the final project. A rivet or other connection structure can also be used and driven through holes in each of the solid components to form the final product.

  • Patent number: 9144547
    Abstract: An oral dosage form comprising, (i) an erodable core, which core comprises a pharmaceutically active weak base or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or solvate thereof; and (ii) an erodable coating surrounding said core, which coating comprises one or more openings extending substantially completely through said coating but not penetrating said core and communicating from the environment of use to said core; characterized in that release of the pharmaceutically active weak base or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or solvate thereof from the dosage form occurs through the said opening(s) by the erosion of said erodable core and through erosion of said erodable coating under pre-determined pH conditions; a process for preparing such a dosage form and the use of such a dosage form in medicine.
