The compounds of formula (VI) can be prepared according to the methods described in WO 96/13499.

The particles comprise the compounds of formula (I) to (VI) as a solid dispersion in a polymeric matrix, wherein the polymeric matrix is consisting of a homo- or copolymer of N-vinyl-pyrrolidone. Furthermore, the invention concerns a process for manufacturing of such particles and pharmaceutical dosage forms comprising such particles.

The compounds of formula (I) to (VI) contained in the particles show poor bio-availability.

In order to improve the dissolution characteristics the compounds are dispersed in a polymeric matrix, preferably by using a melt-extrusion process.

EP-A 0 240 904 discloses a method for producing solid pharmaceutical forms by extrusion of polymer melts which contain active substances, using as polymers homo- or copolymers of N-vinyl-pyrrolidone.

EP-B 0 580 860 discloses a method for producing solid dispersions of drug substances in a polymeric matrix using a twin screw extruder.

It is an object of the present invention to provide rate-controlled pharmaceutical forms containing the aforementioned compounds.

We have found that this object is achieved by the particles defined at the outset.

Preferred compounds according to the invention are:

  • 4-[[4-[(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)amino]-2-pyrimidinyl]amino]benzo nitrile;
  • 4-[[2-[(cyanophenyl)amino]-4-pyrimidinyl]amino]-3,5-dimethyl-benzonitrile;

  • 1-[4-[4-[4-[[4-(2,4-difluorophenyl)-4-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl-methyl)-1,3-dioxolan-2-yl]methoxy]phenyl]-1-piperazinyl]phenyl]-3-(1-methylethyl)-2-imidazolidinone;
  • (−)-[2S-[2alpha,4alpha(S*)]]-4-[4-[4-[4-[[2-(4-chlorophenyl)-2-[[(4-methyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-yl)thio]methyl]-1,3-dioxolan-4-yl]methoxy]phenyl]-1-piperazinyl]phenyl]-2,4-dihydro-2-(1-methyl-propyl)-3H-1,2,4-triazol-3-one,
    a N-oxide, a pharmaceutically acceptable addition salt or a stereochemically isomeric form thereof.

According to the present invention the term rate-controlled means that depending on the composition of the matrix the particles can show instant release of the active ingredient or modified release (sustained release).

The compounds according to the invention are homogeneously dispersed in a polymer matrix consisting of a homopolymer of N-vinylpyrrolidone or, preferably, a copolymer of N-vinyl-pyrrolidone. A preferred copolymer is a copolymer of N-vinyl-pyrrolidone and vinyl acetate, especially a copolymer obtained from 60% b.w. of NVP and 40% b.w. of vinylacetate.

The polymers show Fikentscher K values of from 17 to 90, preferably a K value of 30 (for the definition of the K value see H. Fikentscher, Cellulose-Chemie (1932), 58-64 and 71-74).

The polymeric matrix component is used in amounts of from 40 to 70, preferably of from 50 to 65% b.w. of the total weight of the particles.

In a preferred embodiment of the invention the polymeric matrix further comprises a surfactant, preferably a surfactant with a HLB-value of 10-18 (HLB: Hydrophilic Lipophilic Balance). Especially preferred surfactants are selected form the group consisting of low molecular weight polyoxyethylene polyoxy-propylene block copolymers with a mean molecular weight of 1000 to 6000 g/mol, and hydrogenated castor oil which can be modified with polyethylene glycol.

The amounts of surfactants used lies in the range of up to 20% b.w., preferably 5 to 15% b.w., of the particles.

In another preferred embodiment the matrix further comprises an organic carboxylic acid in amounts of up to 5% b.w. of the particles.

In another preferred embodiment of the invention the polymeric matrix further comprises hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose in amounts of up to 25% b.w., preferably from 5 to 10% b.w.

The particles of the present invention are prepared as solid dispersions of the active compounds in a polymeric matrix. The term solid dispersion is well known in the art and means a dispersion consisting of solid components. Preferably solid dispersions are in the form of solid solutions wherein the active ingredients are molecularly dispersed in the polymeric matrix.

Such solid dispersion is preferably obtained by forming a homogeneous mixture of the components in the form of a melt, extruding said melt and shaping of the extrudate. The melting is effected by the input of thermal and/or mechanic energy.

Depending on the composition of the matrix, the melting takes place in the range of from 40 C. to 190 C., preferably 50 to 150 C. The suitable temperature range depends on the glass transition temperature of the polymer component, the properties of the active ingredients and further additives. The optimal temperature range can be established by a few simple tests.

The mixing of the active substances with the polymer and additional components of the matrix can take place before or after the melting of the polymer. Preferably the process is solvent-free which means that no additional organic solvents or water are added.

The plastification and melting preferably can take place in an extruder, a kneader or a mixing reactor, preferably in an extruder having one or more screws which may rotate in the same direction or opposite directions, especially in a twin screw extruder. The latter can be operated with or without kneading elements, but use of kneading elements is preferred because mixing is better.

The still plastic material is extruded through a die or a breaker plate and then shaped into particles. This may be effected by milling and subsequent sieving the cooled extrudate. The preferred particle size for instant release forms lies in the range of from 0.5 to 1.5 mm.

The particles, optionally together with conventional pharmaceutically acceptable excipients, may be further processed to conventional pharmaceutical dosage forms such as tablets, pastilles, suppositories, or be packed in capsules.

It is possible and particularly advantageous to produce pharmaceutical forms with rate-controlled release and improved dissolution rates of the active ingredients. This was not to be expected in view of the low solubility of the active ingredients in aqueous media.
