Patent
LTS Lohmann Therapie Systeme AG and UCB Pharma | Date: 2015-05-20

Use of an additive in a transdermal therapeutic system with an active agent-containing layer in the form of a biphasic layer having a hydrophilic inner phase and a hydrophobic outer phase, wherein the inner phase comprises the additive and an active agent dissolved therein, wherein the additive has a higher affinity to water than to the active agent, for the control of the permeation rate of the active agent in a manner which is independent from its concentration in the biphasic layer, wherein the maintenance of the permeation rate is proportional to the amount of active agent in the biphasic layer.


The present application relates to a fixed dose combination comprising lacosamide and levetiracetam, as well as to dosage regimens including such fixed dose combinations. The fixed dose combinations are suitable for the oral or parenteral treatment of various diseases, including in particular epilepsy and/or epileptic seizures.


Patent
LTS Lohmann Therapie Systeme AG and UCB Pharma | Date: 2015-05-20

Transdermal therapeutic system for the transdermal administration of rotigotine containing an therapeutically effective amount of rotigotine base in a self-adhesive layer structure, comprising A) a backing layer, and B) a rotigotine-containing biphasic layer, the bi phasic layer having a) an outer phase having a composition comprising 75% to 100% of a polymer or a polymer mixture, and b) an inner phase having a composition comprising rotigotine base, wherein the inner phase forms dispersed deposits in the outer phase, and wherein the inner phase comprises i. rotigotine base, and ii. a polymer mixture comprising at least two hydrophilic polymers selected from at least two of the polymer groups: polyvinylpyrrolidones having a K-Value of at least 80, or from 80 to 200, polyvinylpyrrolidones having a K-Value of less than 80, or from 10 to 79, copolymers of vinyl caprolactam, vinylacetate and ethylene glycol, copolymers of vinylpyrrolidone and vinylacetate, copolymers of ethylene and vinylacetate, polyethylene glycols, polypropylene glycols, acrylic polymers, modified celluloses, wherein the polymer mixture in the inner phase is present in an amount sufficient so that said rotigotine base forms a solid solution with the polymer mixture in the inner phase, and C) optionally an additional skin contact layer.


Patent
UCB Pharma | Date: 2017-03-06

The invention relates to antibody molecules having specificity for antigenic determinants of IL-6, therapeutic uses of the antibody molecules and methods for producing said antibody molecules.


Patent
UCB Pharma | Date: 2017-02-09

This invention relates to the use of rotigotine for the effective treatment of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) as well as to a rotigotine-containing transepicutaneous pharmaceutical composition, provided in particular in the form of an acrylate- or silicone-based Transdermal Therapeutic System (US) having a surface area of 2.5 to 20 cm^(2 )and containing 0.1 to 3.15 mg/cm^(2 )rotigotine as its active component against the Restless Leg Syndrome, said system leading in the human Restless Leg Syndrome condition to an improvement, compared to a placebo treatment, by 2 or more units on the International Restless Leg Syndrome Study Group (IRLSSG) scale after administration over a period of eight days.


Patent
