    Abstract: The present invention is based, at least in part, on the identification of a pharmaceutical container formed, at least in part, of a glass composition which exhibits a reduced propensity to delaminate, i.e., a reduced propensity to shed glass particulates. As a result, the presently claimed containers are particularly suited for storage of pharmaceutical compositions and, specifically, a pharmaceutical solution comprising a pharmaceutically active ingredient, for example, PEDIARIX® (Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Adsorbed, Hepatitis B (Recombinant) and Inactivated Poliovirus Vaccine), HAVRIX® (Hepatitis A Vaccine), ENGERIX-B® (Hepatitis B Vaccine (Recombinant)), TWINRIX® (Hepatitis A & Hepatitis B (Recombinant) Vaccine), EPERZAN® (albiglutide), MAGE-A3 Antigen-Specific Cancer Immunotherapeutic (astuprotimut-R), GSK2402968 (drisapersen), and HZ/su (herpes zoster vaccine).

  • Publication number: 20140251858
    Abstract: The invention relates to packaging comprising a breathable valve, intended to extend the green life of perishable products. The packaging comprises a flexible container (1) and a breathable valve assembly (2) that can be used to control the concentration of oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapor and ethylene in the atmosphere inside the container, such as to maintain a desired value depending on the weight and the respiration rate of the product. The breathable valve assembly (2) comprises a ring (3) and a breathable lid (4) assembled in order to close the flexible container (1). The packaging is advantageous over the prior art in that it can be assembled without using any heat-sealing technique and in that it can extend the green life of perishable products, such as fruits and vegetables.
