Patent
RAS Topchiev Institute of Petrochemical Synthesis and Corium International | Date: 2016-11-23

A composition is provided, wherein the composition comprises a water-swellable, water insoluble polymer, a blend of a hydrophilic polymer and a complementary oligomer capable of hydrogen bonding to the hydrophilic polymer, and a whitening agent, preferably a peroxide. The composition finds utility as a tooth whitening composition and is applied to the teeth in need of whitening, and then removed when the degree of whitening has been achieved. In certain embodiments, the composition is translucent. Methods for preparing and using the compositions are also disclosed.

Provided herein is a microstructure array comprising a plurality of dissolving microstructures such as microprojections attached to a base. The plurality of microstructures comprise an active agent in a biocompatible and water-soluble matrix, where the water-soluble matrix preferably comprises a polysaccharide polymer and a sugar alcohol, and the base typically comprises a non-water soluble matrix. The plurality of microstructures, upon penetration of the subjects skin, undergo dissolution to deliver the active agent. Also provided are related microstructure formulations, in dried and liquid form, methods for preparing the above-described microstructure arrays, and methods for administering an active agent by application of a microstructure array as provided herein to a subjects skin, among other features.

Formulations for topical application of aripiprazole are provided. The formulations, when applied topically to the skin of a subject, provide a therapeutic amount of aripiprazole in the blood for a sustained period of time for treatment of conditions responsive to aripiprazole including but not limited to depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.


Devices and methods for manufacturing and using microstructure arrays are described. In the methods, formulation is introduced into cavities of a microprojection array mold by means that include a vacuum to achieve a more efficient and uniform filling of the cavities and/or reduce bubble formation in the cavities.

A composition is provided, wherein the composition comprises a water-swellable, water-insoluble polymer, a blend of a hydrophilic polymer with a complementary oligomer capable of hydrogen or electrostatic bonding to the hydrophilic polymer. The composition also includes a backing member. Active ingredients, such as a whitening agent, may be included. The composition finds utility as an oral dressing, for example, a tooth whitening composition that is applied to the teeth in need of whitening. The composition can be designed to be removed when the degree of whitening has been achieved or left in place and allowed to erode entirely. In certain embodiments, the composition is translucent. Methods for preparing and using the compositions are also disclosed.
