  • Patent number: 5474989
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a drug composition in which the solubility and the dissolution rate of a drug having low water solubility are improved by incoroprating therein a low molecular weight chitosan in an amount of from 0.2 to 10 parts by weight per one part by weight of the poorly water-soluble drug. As the low molecular weight chitosan, those having a weight average molecular weight in the range from 500 to 50,000 and soluble in water were employed. This drug composition is prepared by mixing the components intimately so as to obtain a homogeneous dispersion of the low molecular weight chitosan with the mass of the composition.The drug composition according to the invention can be worked up into various preparation forms, such as, granules etc., as medicaments for administration to living organisms in which the bioabsorptivity and biouptake are improved.

  • Patent number: 5317026
    Abstract: 2-Substituted-N-{3-[3-(1-piperidinomethyl)phenoxy]propyl}acetamide, derivatives thereof, and pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof. The substitution group may be aminomethylcyclohexane carbonyl group or N-carbobenzoxy-p-aminomethylhexane carbonyl group. The compounds having the first-mentioned group can be an effective component of an antiulcer drug composition, and the compounds of the last-mentioned group are intermediates for producing the compounds having the first-mentioned group. Disclosed also is an antiulcer drug composition comprising the above compound as an effective component. The antiulcer drug composition exhibits both the gastric acid secretion inhibitive activity and the gastric mucosa protective activity, and is effective as suppression and cure of ulcers.
