Summary for Patent: 9,457,036
Title:Compositions and methods for combination antiviral therapy
Abstract: The present invention relates to therapeutic combinations of [2-(6-amino-purin-9-yl)-1-methyl-ethoxymethyl]-phosphonic acid diisopropoxycarbonyloxymethyl ester (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, Viread.RTM.) and (2R,5S,cis)-4-amino-5-fluoro-1-(2-hydroxymethyl-1,3-oxathiolan-5-yl)-(1H)- -pyrimidin-2-one (emtricitabine, Emtriva.TM., (-)-cis FTC) and their physiologically functional derivatives. The combinations may be useful in the treatment of HIV infections, including infections with HIV mutants bearing resistance to nucleoside and/or non-nucleoside inhibitors. The present invention is also concerned with pharmaceutical compositions and formulations of said combinations of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and emtricitabine, and their physiologically functional derivatives, as well as therapeutic methods of use of those compositions and formulations.
Inventor(s): Dahl; Terrence C. (Sunnyvale, CA), Menning; Mark M. (San Francisco, CA), Oliyai; Reza (Foster City, CA)
Assignee: Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Foster City, CA)
Application Number:14/523,758
Patent Litigation and PTAB cases: See patent lawsuits and PTAB cases for patent 9,457,036
Patent Claims: 1. A fixed dose combination pharmaceutical dosage form comprising 300 mg tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and 200 mg emtricitabine; a binder selected from the group consisting of povidone, gelatin, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, starch, and acacia; a disintegrant selected from sodium starch glycolate, crosslinked-povidone, cross-linked sodium carboxymethylcellulose, and alginic acid; and a lubricant selected from the group consisting of magnesium stearate, stearic acid, and talc; wherein said pharmaceutical dosage form exhibits equal to or less than 5% degradation of the tenofovir disoproxil fumarate or emtricitabine after 6 months when packaged and stored with silica gel dessicant at 40.degree.

10. The pharmaceutical dosage form of claim 8 comprising 300 mg tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, 200 mg emtricitabine, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, lactose, pregelatinized starch, and magnesium stearate.

11. The pharmaceutical dosage form of claim 8 comprising 300 mg tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, 200 mg emtricitabine, 112 mg hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, lactose, pregelatinized starch, and 7 mg magnesium stearate.

12. The pharmaceutical dosage form of claim 1 comprising less than 1% of impurities related to tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and emtricitabine.

13. A method for the treatment of the symptoms or effects of an HIV infection in an infected animal which comprises administering to said animal the pharmaceutical dosage form of claim 1.

14. A method for the treatment of the symptoms or effects of an HIV infection in an infected animal which comprises administering to said animal the pharmaceutical dosage form of claim 8.

15. The pharmaceutical dosage form of claim 1, wherein the starch is pregelatinized starch.

16. A fixed dose combination pharmaceutical dosage form comprising 300 mg tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and 200 mg emtricitabine; a binder selected from the group consisting of povidone, gelatin, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinized starch, and acacia; a disintegrant selected from sodium starch glycolate, crosslinked-povidone, cross-linked sodium carboxymethylcellulose, maize starch, and alginic acid; and a lubricant selected from the group consisting of magnesium stearate, stearic acid, and talc; wherein said pharmaceutical dosage form exhibits equal to or less than 5% degradation of the tenofovir disoproxil fumarate or emtricitabine after 6 months when packaged and stored with silica gel dessicant at 40.degree.
