|Title:||Inhalable aztreonam lysinate formulation for treatment and prevention of pulmonary bacterial infections|
|Abstract:||A method and a composition for treatment of pulmonary bacterial infections caused by gram-negative bacteria suitable for treatment of infection caused by Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Klebsiella oxytoca, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Haemophilus influenzae, Proteus mirabilis, Enterobacter species, Serratia marcescens as well as those caused by Burkholderia cepacia, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Alcaligenes xylosoxidans, and multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, using a concentrated formulation of aztreonam lysinate delivered as an aerosol or dry powder formulation.|
|Inventor(s):||Montgomery; Alan Bruce (Medina, WA)|
|Assignee:||Corus Pharma, Inc. (Seattle, WA)|
1. An inhalable composition comprising aztreonam lysinate, said composition suitable for the treatment of pulmonary bacterial infections caused by gram-negative bacteria,
wherein said aztreonam lysinate is prepared as an inhalable dry powder having a particle size with a mass medium average diameter from about 1 to about 5.mu..
2. The composition of claim 1 wherein the aztreonam lysinate is alpha aztreonam lysinate.
3. The composition of claim 1 wherein the gram-negative bacteria is Burkholderia cepacia.
4. The composition of claim 1 wherein the gram-negative bacteria is Stenotrophomonas maltophilia.
5. The composition of claim 1 wherein the gram-negative bacteria is Alcaligenes xylosoxidans.
6. The composition of claim 1 wherein the gram-negative bacteria is a multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
7. The composition of claim 1 comprising from about 1 to 250 mg of the aztreonam lysinate, wherein the composition may be administered as the inhalable dry powder by a dry powder inhaler or as a diluted saline solution by a metered dose inhaler the aerosolable solution.
8. The composition of claim 7, comprising 10 to 100 of aztreonam lysinate.
9. The composition of claim 8 comprising 75 mg of aztreonam lysinate, wherein said composition may be administered twice or three times a day.
10. The composition of claim 7 wherein the aztreonam lysinate is alpha aztreonam lysinate prepared from an alpha aztreonam form.
11. The composition of claim 10 wherein said alpha aztreonam lysinate has impurity lower than 1% and stability for at least two years.
12. The composition of claim 11 wherein said alpha aztreonam lysinate contains less than 100 ppm of residual alcohol and initial levels of contaminants generated from the alpha aztreonam lysinate are less than 1%.
13. The composition of claim 10 wherein said aztreonam lysinate is in a solution comprising a volume of saline from about 1 to about 5 ml, said saline comprising between about 0.09% and about 0.9% of chloride, w/v, or an equivalent amount of bromine or iodine, wherein said solution is aerosolable and wherein said aerosolable solution has a pH from about 4.2 to about 7.5.
14. The composition of claim 13 wherein said saline comprises from about 0.1 to about 0.45% of sodium chloride, w/v, and wherein said pH is from about 5.5 to about 7.
15. The composition of claim 14 wherein the aztreonam lysinate is present in a concentration of about 75 mg/ml in said saline.
16. A method for administering aztreonam lysinate comprising administration of the composition of claim 7 by a dry powder inhaler or by a metered dose inhaler, wherein said composition may be administered one to twelve times a day, provided that if the composition is delivered more than twice a day, a total dose of aztreonam lysinate is not higher than 750 mg a day.
