Patent
Nektar Therapeutics | Date: 2017-03-27

Conjugates of an anti-TNF antibody and one or more nonpeptidic water-soluble polymers are provided. Typically, the nonpeptidic water-soluble polymer is poly(ethylene glycol) or a derivative thereof. Also provided, among other things, are compositions comprising conjugates, methods of making conjugates, and methods of administering compositions to a patient.


Solid forms of certain opioid agonists are provided herein. Methods of preparing the solid forms, methods of using the solid forms, and pharmaceutical compositions comprising the solid forms are also provided herein.


Patent
Nektar Therapeutics | Date: 2016-08-04

Provided herein (among other things) are protease inhibitor compounds having enhanced features, along with methods for administering such compounds. For example, the subject compounds can be administered without concomitant administration of a CYP3A4 inhibitor, have increased therapeutic index and/or increased potency, and are low-resistance inducing in nature.


The present invention relates generally to the co-administration of an opioid agonist compound and an analgesic compound. In addition, the invention relates to, among other things, dosage forms for co-administration of an opioid agonist compound and an analgesic compound, methods for administering an opioid agonist compound and an analgesic compound, compositions comprising an opioid agonist compound and an analgesic compound, dosage forms comprising an opioid agonist compound and an analgesic compound, and so on.


Patent
Nektar Therapeutics | Date: 2017-02-28

The invention relates to (among other things) N-optionally substituted aryl-2-oligomer-3-alkoxypropionamides and compositions comprising the same. A compound of the invention, when administered by any of a number of administration routes, exhibits one or more advantages over corresponding compounds lacking the oligomer.


Patent
Nektar Therapeutics | Date: 2017-03-15

Conjugates of an IL-15 moiety and one or more nonpeptidic, water-soluble polymers are provided. Typically, the nonpeptidic, water-soluble polymer is poly(ethylene glycol) or a derivative thereof. Also provided, among other things, are compositions comprising conjugates, methods of making conjugates, and methods of administering compositions to an individual.


Patent
Nektar Therapeutics | Date: 2016-05-17

Conjugates of a Factor IX moiety and one or more water-soluble polymers are provided. Typically, the water-soluble polymer is poly(ethylene glycol) or a derivative thereof. Also provided (among other things) are compositions comprising the conjugates, methods of making the conjugates, and methods of administering to a patient compositions comprising the conjugates.


Patent
Nektar Therapeutics | Date: 2017-03-02

Embodiments of the invention relate to particles of active substances, methods for preparing the particles, formulations containing the particles, and metered dose inhalers containing such particles or formulations. In one embodiment, a composition of an aerosol formulation is provided and contains a particulate active substance of non-micronized, solid particles having a mass median aerodynamic diameter of less than 10 m suspended in a hydrofluorocarbon fluid vehicle at a concentration within a range from about 0.2% w/v to about 5% w/v. The aerosol formulation exhibits a flocculation volume of about 85% or greater about 1 minute after mixing the particulate active substance and the hydrofluorocarbon fluid vehicle. The particulate active substance contains an alkaloid ergotamine, pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof, analogues thereof, or derivatives thereof. In some examples, the alkaloid ergotamine contains dihydroergotamine, such as dihydroergotamine mesylate and the hydrofluorocarbon fluid vehicle contains HFA 134a, HFA 227ea, or mixtures thereof.


Provided herein are polymeric -hydroxy aldehyde or -hydroxy ketone reagents which can be conjugated to amine-containing compounds to form stable conjugates in a single-step reaction. In selected embodiments, the polymeric reagent itself incorporates an internal proton-abstracting (basic) functional group, to promote more efficient reaction. The substituent is appropriately situated, via a linker if necessary, to position the group for proton abstraction, preferably providing a 4- or 5-bond spacing between the abstracting atom and the hydrogen atom on the -carbon. Also provided are methods of using the reagents and stable, solubilized conjugates of the reagents with biologically active compounds. In preferred embodiments, the polymeric component of the reagent or conjugate is a polyethylene glycol.


The invention relates to (among other things) method of administering to a patient suffering from a cancer, the method comprising the steps of: (a) an IL-2R-activating amount of a long acting, IL-2R-selective agonist; and (b) a CTLA-4 pathway-inhibiting amount of an anti-CTLA-4 antibody or a PD-1 pathway-inhibiting amount of an anti-PD-1 antibody.
