|Title:||Process for the preparation of a sterile injectable physiologically acceptable solution of an X-ray contrast agent and solutions of the X-ray contrast agent and a buffer|
|Abstract:||Sterile, injectable, physiologically acceptable solutions of an X-ray contrast agent are prepared by autoclaving a solution of a m-carboxamido-o-iodo-N-(.beta.-hydroxyalkyl)aniline X-ray contrast agent in the presence of a physiologically acceptable buffer system the pH of which decreases with increasing temperature. The presence of a temperature dependent buffer, preferably an amine, enables X-ray contrast agents to be sterilized by autoclaving without significant decomposition. Examples of the autoclaving processes are given and solutions for autoclaving containing a m-carboxamido-o-iodo-N-(.beta.-hydroxyalkyl)aniline X-ray contrast agent and a physiologically acceptable buffer system the pH of which decreases with increasing temperature are described and claimed.|

The estimated expiration dates shown above are derived by simply adding 20 years to the priority date.
Due to the complexity of determining patent expirations even in a single country, compounded by the diversity of global patent laws, it is advisable to have patent counsel verify freedom to operate.
