Assignee: Chiesi Farmaceutici, S.P.A. (Parma, IT)
Application Number:15/188,420
Patent Litigation and PTAB cases: See patent lawsuits and PTAB cases for patent 9,700,575
Patent Claims: 1. A pharmaceutical formulation comprising high purity cangrelor, or a salt thereof, as an active ingredient and one or more pharmaceutically acceptable excipients, wherein the pharmaceutical formulation has a pH of between about 7.0 and about 9.5, wherein the high purity cangrelor or salt thereof has a combined total of selected hydrolysis and oxidation degradants of cangrelor not exceeding about 1.5% by weight of the high purity cangrelor, and wherein the selected hydrolysis and oxidation degradants are one or more members selected from the group consisting of: ##STR00003##

2. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 1, wherein the combined total of selected hydrolysis and oxidation degradants of cangrelor does not exceed about 1.3% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

3. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 1, wherein the amount of impurity A is less than about 0.5% by weight, the amount of impurity B present is less than about 0.2% by weight, the amount of impurity C is less than about 0.3% by weight, the amount of impurity D is less than about 0.2% by weight, and the amount of impurity E is less than about 0.5% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

4. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 1, wherein the maximum impurity level of impurities A and D is each less than about 0.5% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

5. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 1, wherein the pharmaceutically acceptable excipient is a polyol.

6. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 1, wherein the pharmaceutically acceptable excipients are mannitol and sorbitol.

7. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 1, wherein the pharmaceutical formulation comprises about 16-21% high purity cangrelor and about 84-79% of the one or more pharmaceutically acceptable excipients, by weight of the pharmaceutical formulation.

8. A sealed vessel containing the pharmaceutical formulation of claim 1 under a chemically inert dry gas.

9. The sealed vessel of claim 8, wherein the chemically inert dry gas is nitrogen or argon.

10. The sealed vessel of claim 8, wherein moisture in the pharmaceutical formulation remains below 5.0% on a weight basis over a period of at least about 6 months.

11. The sealed vessel of claim 8, wherein after a period of about 12 months, the pharmaceutical formulation is characterized by a pH of between about 7.0 and 9.5 for a 1% solution by weight, an amount of moisture less than about 5% on a weight basis, a maximum level of the impurities A, B, C and D not exceeding about 1% each by weight of the high purity cangrelor and a maximum level of impurity E not exceeding about 0.5% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

12. The sealed vessel of claim 8, wherein after a period of about 12 months, the pharmaceutical formulation is characterized by a pH of between about 7.0 and 9.5 for a 1% solution by weight, an amount of moisture less than about 5% on a weight basis, and a maximum combined level of impurities A, B, C, D and E not exceeding about 5% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

13. The sealed vessel of claim 8, wherein after a period of about 12 months, the pharmaceutical formulation is characterized by a pH of between about 7.0 and 9.5 for a 1% solution by weight, an amount of moisture less than about 5% on a weight basis, and a maximum combined level of impurities A, B, C, D and E not exceeding about 2% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

14. A pharmaceutical formulation consisting of high purity cangrelor, or a salt thereof, as an active ingredient and mannitol and/or sorbitol as a pharmaceutically acceptable excipient, wherein the pharmaceutical formulation has a pH of between about 7.0 and about 9.5, wherein the high purity cangrelor or salt thereof has a combined total of selected hydrolysis and oxidation degradants of cangrelor not exceeding about 1.5% by weight of the high purity cangrelor, and wherein the selected hydrolysis and oxidation degradants are one or more members selected from the group consisting: ##STR00004##

15. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 14, wherein the combined total of selected hydrolysis and oxidation degradants of cangrelor does not exceed about 1.3% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

16. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 14, wherein the amount of impurity A is less than about 0.5% by weight, the amount of impurity B present is less than about 0.2% by weight, the amount of impurity C is less than about 0.3% by weight, the amount of impurity D is less than about 0.2% by weight, and the amount of impurity E is less than about 0.5% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

17. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 14, wherein the maximum impurity level of impurities A and D is each less than about 0.5% by weight of the high purity cangrelor.

18. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 14, wherein the pharmaceutically acceptable excipient is a polyol.

19. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 14, wherein the pharmaceutically acceptable excipients are mannitol and sorbitol.

20. The pharmaceutical formulation of claim 14, wherein the pharmaceutical formulation comprises about 16-21% high purity cangrelor and about 84-79% of the one or more pharmaceutically acceptable excipients, by weight of the pharmaceutical formulation.

21. A sealed vessel containing the pharmaceutical formulation of claim 14 under a chemically inert dry gas.

22. The sealed vessel of claim 21, wherein the chemically inert dry gas is nitrogen or argon.
