Assignee: JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (Chicago, IL)
Application Number:11/688,450
Patent Claims: 1. A method of oral administration comprising the steps of: (a) adding to a nebulizer, from a propellant-free, sterile unit dose package about 0.1 to about 3.0 mL of a pharmaceutical composition comprising (R) formoterol or a salt thereof at a concentration of from about 0.08 .mu.g/mL to about 43 .mu.g/mL based on formoterol free base, in a pharmacologically suitable solution, wherein the composition further comprises water and a buffer having a concentration of from about 1 mM to about 50 mM, said composition having a pH of about 4.0 to about 6.0, and having an estimated shelf life of greater than 90% after 3 months storage at 25.degree. C. and after 3 years storage at 5.degree. C.; and (b) directly administering said composition to a subject in need thereof, without dilution or other modification of said prior to administration.

2. A method of oral administration comprising the steps of: (a) adding to a nebulizer from a propellant-free, sterile unit dose package about 0.1 to about 3.0 mL of a pharmaceutical composition comprising (R) formoterol or a salt thereof at a concentration of from about 0.08 .mu.g/mL to about 43 .mu.g/mL based on formoterol free base, in a pharmacologically suitable solution, wherein the composition further comprises water and a buffer having a concentration of from about 1 mM to about 50 mM, said composition having a pH of about 4.0 to about 6.0, and having an estimated shelf life of greater than about 94% after 3 months storage at 25.degree. C. and greater than about 96% after 3 months storage at 5.degree. C.; and (b) directly administering said composition to a subject in need thereof, without dilution or other modification of said prior to administration.

3. A method of oral administration comprising the steps of: (a) adding from a propellant-free, sterile unit dose package to a nebulizer about 0.1 to about 3.0 mL of a pharmaceutical composition comprising (R) formoterol or a salt thereof at a concentration of from about 0.08 .mu.g/mL to about 43 .mu.g/mL based on formoterol free base, in a pharmacologically suitable solution, wherein the composition further comprises water and a citrate buffer at a concentration of from about 1 mM to about 20 mM, said composition having a pH of about 4.5 to about 5.5; and (b) directly administering said composition to a subject in need thereof, without dilution or other modification of said composition prior to administration.

4. The method of oral administration as in any one of claims 1, 2 and 3 wherein said undesired and/or uncontrolled bronchoconstriction is a symptom or condition of asthma.

5. The method of oral administration as in any one of claims 1, 2 and 3 wherein said undesired and/or uncontrolled bronchoconstriction is a symptom or condition of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

6. The method of oral administration as in any one of claims 1, 2 and 3 wherein said buffer is present at a concentration of between about 1 mM and about 50 mM.

7. The method of oral administration as in any one of claims 1 and 2 wherein said buffer is present at a concentration of between about 1 mM and about 20 mM.

8. The method of oral administration as in any one of claims 1, 2 and 3 wherein said composition has a pH of about 5.

9. The method of oral administration of claim 8 wherein said buffer has a pH of about 5.

10. The method of oral administration as in any one of claims 1 and 2, wherein about 2.0 mL of the composition is nebulized.

11. The method of oral administration as in any of claims 1, 2 or 3, wherein said (R) formoterol or a salt thereof is (R) formoterol tartrate.
