Patent
Alkermes | Date: 2016-10-14

A pharmaceutical composition which comprises a therapeutically effective amount of a aminopyridine dispersed in a release matrix, including, for example, a composition that can be formulated into a stable, sustained-release oral dosage formulation, such as a tablet which provides, upon administration to a patient, a therapeutically effective plasma level of the aminopyridine for a period of at least 12 hours, preferably 24 hours or more and the use of the composition to treat various neurological diseases.


Patent
Alkermes | Date: 2016-09-12

The invention relates to a composition comprising buprenorphine and a opioid receptor antagonist, wherein the composition is characterized by an Agonist Antagonist Activity Index (AAnAI) of between about 0.7 and about 2.2; wherein;

This invention relates to compositions for the sustained release of biologically active polypeptides, and methods of forming and using said compositions, for the sustained release of biologically active polypeptides. The sustained release compositions of this invention comprise a biocompatible polymer having dispersed therein, a biologically active polypeptide and a sugar.


The present invention provides fusion polypeptides comprising polypeptide ligands that are modified by circular permutation and fused to at least one polypeptide fusion partner wherein such fusion polypeptides have new, improved or enhanced biological functions or activities. Such improvements include, but are not limited to, increased binding affinity, increased activity, increased agonist activity (super agonist), antagonist activity, increased accessibility, increased flexibility of the active site, increased stability, broader and/or changed substrate specificity, and combinations thereof.

A pharmaceutical composition which comprises a therapeutically effective amount of a aminopyridine dispersed in a release matrix, including, for example, a composition that can be formulated into a stable, sustained-release oral dosage formulation, such as a tablet which provides, upon administration to a patient, a therapeutically effective plasma level of the aminopyridine for a period of at least 12 hours, preferably 24 hours or more and the use of the composition to treat various neurological diseases.


Patent
Alkermes | Date: 2016-08-03

The invention provides a method of sustained delivery of a lactam, imide, amide, sulfonamide, carbamate or urea containing parent drug by administering to a patient an effective amount of a prodrug compound of the invention wherein upon administration to the patient, release of the parent drug from the prodrug is sustained release. Prodrug compounds suitable for use in the methods of the invention are labile conjugates of parent drugs that are derivatized through carbonyl linked prodrug moieties. The prodrug compounds of the invention can be used to treat any condition for which the lactam, imide, amide, sulfonamide, carbamate or urea containing parent drug is useful as a treatment.

The invention relates to a composition comprising buprenorphine and opioid receptor antagonist, wherein the composition is characterized by an Agonist Antagonist Activity Index (AAnAI) of between about 0.7 and about 2.2; wherein;


The invention provides fusion proteins having improved bioactivity comprising a first polypeptide fusion partner and a second polypeptide fusion partner wherein the first fusion partner is linked to the second fusion partner by a mucin-domain polypeptide linker and wherein the bioactivity of the fusion protein of the invention is improved as compared to fusion of the first polypeptide fusion partner and the second polypeptide fusion partner in the absence of the mucin-domain polypeptide linker. Mucin-domain polypeptide linkers comprise a mucin domain that is rich in potential glycosylation sites, and has a high content of serine and/or threonine and proline, which can represent greater than 40% of the amino acids within the mucin domain and further comprise at least about 60% of its mass due to the glycans.
