Title: Compositions containing micronized nebivolol
Abstract:The present invention relates to pharmaceutical compositions containing as active ingredient micronized nebivolol of formula (I) and ways of preparing said compositions. ##STR1##
Inventor(s): Jans; Eugeen Marie Jozef (Meerhout, BE), Smans; Guido Franciscus (Lille, BE), Gilis; Paul Marie Victor (Beerse, BE)
Assignee: Janssen Pharmaceutica, N.V. (Beerse, BE)
Application Number:08/669,415
Patent Claims: 1. A pharmaceutical composition comprising a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier and as active ingredient nebivolol or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof characterized in that the active ingredient is in a micronized solid form and wherein the pharmaceutically acceptable carrier comprises a filler, lubricant, disintegrate, binding agent and wetting agent.

2. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1 wherein the pharmaceutical composition is a solid pharmaceutical composition.

3. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1 or 2, wherein the active ingredient is a micronized form of nebivolol hydrochloride.

4. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 3, wherein the micronized form of nebivolol hydrochloride has a specific surface area of at least 23.times.10.sup.3 cm.sup.2 /g (2.3.times.10.sup.3 m.sup.2 /kg).

5. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 3, wherein said pharmaceutical composition comprises 1 to 4% of a micronized form of nebivolol hydrochloride.

6. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 3, wherein said pharmaceutical composition further comprises a Polysorbate as a wetting agent and wherein the ratio (w/w) of Polysorbate to nebivolol hydrochloride ranges from 0.025 to 0.5.

7. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 2, wherein said pharmaceutical composition is a tablet.

8. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 3, wherein said pharmaceutical composition is a tablet substantially having the following composition:

9. A tablet as claimed in claim 7, characterized in that it has a dissolution of 75% after 45 minutes.

10. A micronized form of nebivolol hydrochloride having a specific area of at least 23.times.10.sup.3 cm.sup.2 /g.

11. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1, wherein the filler is selected from the group consisting of lactose, sucrose, mannitol, maize, starch, microcrystalline cellulose and calcium hydrogen phosphate.

12. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1, wherein the lubricant is selected from the group consisting of stearic acid, polyethylene glycol, hydrogenated vegetable oil, sodium stearyl fumarate, magnesium stearate, talc and silica.

13. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1, wherein the disintegrant is selected from rice, potato or maize starch, sodium starch glycolate, and croscarmellose sodium.

14. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1, wherein the binding agent is selected from the group consisting of pregelatinized maize starch, polyvinylpyrrolidone and hydroxpropyl methylcellulose.

15. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1, wherein the wetting agent is sodium dioctylsulfosuccinate or a polysorbate.

16. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1, wherein the filler is lactose, sucrose, mannitol, maize starch, microcrystalline cellulose or calcium hydrogen phosphate; the lubricant is stearic acid, polyethylene glycol, hydrogenated vegetable oil, sodium stearyl fumarate, magnesium stearate, talc or silica; the disintegrant is rice, potato or maize starch, sodium starch glyolate or croscarmellose sodium; the binding agent is pregelatinized maize starch, polyvinylpyrrolidone or hydroxy propylmethylcellulose; and the wetting agent is sodium dioctyl sulfosuccinate or a polysorbate.

17. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 11, wherein the filler is lactose, sucrose or microcrystalline cellulose; the lubricant is stearic acid, polyethylene glycol, hydrogenated vegetable oil, sodium stearyl fumarate or magnesium stearate; the disintegrant is rice, potato or maize starch or croscarmellose sodium; the binding agent is hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose; and the wetting agent is a polysorbate.

18. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 1, wherein the ratio (w/w) of wetting agent to nebivolol or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof is in the range of about 0.025 to 0.5.

19. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 18, wherein the ratio (w/w) of wetting agent to nebivolol or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof ranges from about 0.025 to about 0.3.

20. A pharmaceutical composition as claimed in claim 19, wherein the ratio (w/w) of wetting agent to nebivolol or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof ranges from about 0.04 to about 0.25.
