Summary for Patent: 7,498,044
Title:Dosage form and method for producing the same
Abstract: The invention relates to a process for producing a coated drug form or a drug form in the form of an active ingredient matrix, by processing a copolymer, an active pharmaceutical ingredient, a core if present and/or pharmaceutically customary excipients in a conventional manner by melting, injection molding, extrusion, wet granulation, casting, dipping, spreading, spraying or compression to form a coated drug form and/or to form an active ingredient matrix, characterized in that a copolymer is used which is composed of 20 to 33% by weight methacrylic acid, 5 to 30% by weight methyl acrylate, 20 to 40% by weight ethyl acrylate and more than 10 to 30% by weight butyl methacrylate and, if desired, 0 to 10% by weight further vinylically copolymerizable monomers, with the proviso that the glass transition temperature of the copolymer in accordance with ISO 11357-2, section 3.3.3, is 55 to 70.degree. C. The invention further relates to the drug form produced in accordance with the invention, to the copolymer, and to the use thereof.

Application Number:10/512,860
Patent Claims:1. A process for producing a coated drug form or a drug form in the form of an active ingredient matrix, by processing a copolymer, an active pharmaceutical ingredient, a core if present and/or pharmaceutically customary excipients in a conventional manner by melting, injection molding, extrusion, wet granulation, casting, dipping, spreading, spraying or compression to form a coated drug form and/or to form an active ingredient matrix, wherein said copolymer comprises 20 to 33% by weight of methacrylic acid and/or acrylic acid, 5 to 30% by weight of methyl acrylate and 20 to 40% by weight of ethyl acrylate and more than 10 to 30% by weight of butyl methacrylate and, 0 to 10% by weight of vinylically copolymerizable monomers, the proportions of the monomers adding up to 100% by weight, and the glass transition temperature of the copolymer is 55 to 70.degree. C.

2. The process as claimed in claim 1, wherein 5 to 25% by weight of a plasticizer are added to the coating agent and binder.

3. The process as claimed in claim 1, wherein the copolymer is in the form of a dispersion for producing the drug form.

4. The process as claimed in claim 3, wherein the dispersion is obtained by redispersing a freeze-dried or spray-dried copolymer powder.
