Assignee: Takeda Chemical Industries, Ltd. (Osaka, JP)
Filing Date:Aug 08, 2001
Application Number:09/924,234
Claims:1. A stabilized pharmaceutical composition for the inhibition of gastric acid secretion, comprising:

an effective amount of a 2-[(2-pyridyl)methylsulfinyl]benzimidazole compound or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof having gastric acid secretion inhibitory property;

a basic inorganic salt stabilizing agent, comprising sodium carbonate, in an amount effective to stabilize the composition, the benzimidazole compound or its salt being in contact with the stabilizing agent evenly; and

an enteric coating for the composition.

2. A method of providing a gastric acid secretion inhibitory effect to a subject in need thereof, comprising:

orally administering to the subject a stabilized pharmaceutical composition, comprising:

an effective amount of a 2-[(2-pyridyl)methylsulfinyl]benzimidazole compound or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof having a gastric acid secretion inhibitory property;

a basic inorganic salt stabilizing agent, comprising sodium carbonate, in an amount effective to stabilize the composition, the benzimidazole compound or its salt being in contact with the stabilizing agent evenly; and

an enteric coating for the composition.

3. In a method of preparing a pharmaceutical composition for the inhibition of gastric acid secretion that contains a 2-[(2-pyridyl)methylsulfinyl]benzimidazole compound or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof having a gastric acid secretion inhibitory property as an active ingredient, the improvement comprising admixing a basic inorganic salt stabilizing agent comprising sodium carbonate to be in even contact with the 2-[(2-pyridyl)methylsulfinyl]benzimidazole compound or pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, and providing an enteric coating.
