Title:Pharmaceutical compositions comprising fesoterodine
Abstract:The present application relates to a pharmaceutical granulate comprising Fesoterodine or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or solvate thereof and a pharmaceutically acceptable stabilizer, which can be selected from the group consisting of sorbitol, xylitol, polydextrose, isomalt, dextrose, and combinations thereof, and is preferably a sugar alcohol selected from the group consisting of xylitol and sorbitol. The granulate is suitable for incorporation into pharmaceutical compositions comprising a gel matrix formed by at least one type of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose into which the Fesoterodine is embedded and, optionally, further excipients. In certain embodiments, the granulate is formed by a process of wet granulation.

Application Number:11/811,327
Patent Claims: 1. A pharmaceutical composition comprising: (a) 0.3-5.0% [w/w] of fesoterodine hydrogen fumarate; (b) 5-25% [w/w] sorbitol or xylitol; (c) 20-40% [w/w] of a mixture comprising 45-80% (w/w) lactose monohydrate and 55-20% (w/w) microcrystalline cellulose; (d) 20-65% hydroxypropyl methylcellulose; (e) 1-5% [w/w] glycerol dibehenate; and (f) 1-5% [w/w] talc.

2. The pharmaceutical composition of claim 1, comprising: (a) about 4.0 mg fesoterodine hydrogen fumarate (b) about 32-40 mg of xylitol with a mean particle size of about 0.001-0.30 mm (c) about 115-130 mg of a mixture of lactose monohydrate and microcrystalline cellulose (d) about 65-75 mg of HPMC (Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose) having a nominal viscosity of about 100,000 mPas when dissolved (about 2% by weight) in water (e) about 65-75 mg of HPMC (Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose) having a nominal viscosity of about 4,000 mPas when dissolved about 2% by weight) in water (f) about 8-12 mg of glycerol dibehenate (g) about 7-10 mg talc, and, optionally, (h) a coating.

3. The pharmaceutical composition of claim 1, comprising: (a) about 8.0 mg fesoterodine hydrogen fumarate (b) about 65-80 mg of xylitol with a mean particle size of about 0.001-0.30 mm (c) about 70-85 mg of a mixture of lactose monohydrate and microcrystalline cellulose (d) about 110-130 mg of HPMC (Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose) having a nominal viscosity of about 100,000 mPas when dissolved (about 2% by weight) in water (e) about 20-30 mg of HPMC (Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose) having a nominal viscosity of about 4,000 mPas when dissolved about 2% by weight) in water (f) about 8-12 mg of glycerol dibehenate (g) about 7-10 mg talc, and, optionally, (h) a coating.

4. A method of treating a patient suffering from overactive bladder by administering a therapeutically effective amount of a pharmaceutical composition according to claim 1 to said patient.

7. The method according to claim 6, which further comprises a granulation step.

8. The method according to claim 7, wherein the granulation is wet granulation.

9. The method according to any one of claims 6-8, comprising granulating fesoterodine or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof with a stabilizer selected from the group consisting of xylitol or sorbitol and combinations thereof in the presence of water, drying the granulate, mixing the dried granulates with at least one other excipient to give a compression mixture, compressing the compression mixture to the desired form, and optionally applying a coating.
