Claims for Patent: 8,962,028

Title:Topical steroid composition and method
Abstract: Storage stable, topical lotion compositions for treating corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses are provided by the present invention which include a halobetasol material comprising halobetasol or its pharmaceutically acceptable salts, esters, and solvates; and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier which includes: (a) one or more fatty alcohols and/or one or more alkoxylated fatty alcohols, (b) one or more polyol humectants, and (c) diisopropyl adipate. Storage stable, topical lotion compositions for treating corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses are provided by the present invention which include 0.05% halobetasol propionate; and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier which includes: (a) one or more fatty alcohols and/or one or more alkoxylated fatty alcohols, (b) one or more polyol humectants, and (c) diisopropyl adipate.

The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein the alkoxylated fatty alcohol is an ethoxylated alcohol selected from the group consisting of lauryl alcohol ethoxylate, myristyl alcohol ethoxylate, cetyl alcohol ethoxylate, stearyl alcohol ethoxylate, octyldodecanol ethoxylate, and mixtures of any two or more thereof.

4. The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein the polyol humectant is selected from the group consisting of glycerin, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, dipropylene glycol, pentylene glycol, hexylene glycol, polyethylene glycol and mixtures of any two or more thereof.

5. The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein the amount of degradation of said halobetasol material after storage for six months at 40.degree. C. is <1.5% of the total amount of said halobetasol material, wherein the amount of degradation of said halobetasol material after storage for 26 months at 30.degree. C. is <1% of said halobetasol material and wherein the amount of degradation of said halobetasol material after storage at 25.degree. C. for 30 months is <3% of said halobetasol material.

6. The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein said halobetasol material is halobetasol propionate.

7. The topical lotion of claim 1, further including one or more members selected from the group consisting of: one or more additional therapeutic agents, coloring agents, preservatives, pH control agents, viscosity control agents, and fragrances.

8. The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein the ratio of said fatty alcohols and alkoxylated fatty alcohols to said humectants, to said diisopropyl adipate is, on a weight basis, in the range of 39-48:39-50:10-15.

9. The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein the weight ratio of said fatty alcohols and ethoxylated fatty alcohols to said polyol humectants to said diisopropyl adipate is in the range of 44-46:40-43:11-13.

10. The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein the weight ratio of said fatty alcohols and ethoxylated fatty alcohols to said polyol humectants to said diisopropyl adipate is 46:42:12.

11. The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein said topical lotion composition is an oil-in-water emulsion of droplets having a mean particle size in the range of 0.1-50 microns and a distribution of particle sizes in the range of 0.1-50 microns.

12. The topical lotion of claim 1, wherein said topical lotion composition is an oil-in-water emulsion of droplets having a mean particle size in the range of 1-10 microns and a distribution of particle sizes in the range of 0.15-15 microns.
