Summary for Patent: 10,029,015
Title:Hydrogel formulations
Abstract: A polymeric prodrug composition including a hydrogel, a biologically active moiety and a reversible prodrug linker. The prodrug linker covalently links the hydrogel and the biologically active moiety at a position and the hydrogel has a plurality of pores with openings on its surface. The diameter of the pores is larger than that of the biologically active moiety at least at all points of the pore between at least one of the openings and the position of the biologically active moiety.

Assignee: ASCENDIS PHARMA A/S (Hellrup, DK)
Application Number:14/707,464
Patent Claims:1. A polymeric prodrug hydrogel composition, comprising a hydrogel having mesopores of pore size between 1 and 100 nm with surface openings, the mesopores containing therein prodrug linker covalently bonded to the mesopore, the prodrug linker being reversibly covalently bonded by a reversible covalent bond to a biologically active moiety so that the biologically active moiety is contained in the mesopore, the mesopores having average pore size larger than the diameter of the biologically active moiety, the biologically active moiety being coupled only to mesopores in the hydrogel, the reversible covalent bond of the prodrug linker being cleavable in vivo to release the biologically active moiety from the composition so that the biologically active moiety can freely diffuse out of the mesopores of the hydrogel, wherein the hydrogel is degradable in vivo, and wherein the polymeric prodrug hydrogel composition is constituted with respect to its hydrogel, prodrug linker and reversible covalent bond to the biologically active moiety so that release properties of the active biological moiety from the composition are governed by the prodrug linker cleavage kinetics, with said prodrug linker being constituted to provide a cleavage rate in vivo that is at least an order of magnitude higher than rate of degradation of said hydrogel in vivo.
