Title
(EN) INSULIN COMPOSITION
(FR) COMPOSITION D'INSULINE
Abstract
(EN)
Compositions and methods are disclosed for treating a patient with insulin, wherein a composition in a form suitable for nasal delivery to a patient comprises a therapeutically effective amount of insulin, a permeation enhancer, a liquid carrier, and an acid present in said composition in an amount sufficient to provide an acidic pH, but not greater than a pH of 4.5, said acid being selected from the group consisting of: monovalent inorganic acid(s), sulfuric acid, and acetic acid. Preferably the composition is essentially-free of citrate(s) and essentially-free of phosphate(s). The composition being thus designed with the intent to provide a composition that is essentially-free of fibrilliform (or beta-sheet) insulin polymorphs. Also disclosed are pharmaceutical compositions for nasal administration to humans, or to warm-blooded animals, comprising: (A) a therapeutically effective amount of insulin; (B) a permeation enhancer; and (C) a liquid carrier; the compositions being further comprised of, or characterized by, any, or each, of: (D) a combination of non-ionic surfactants; wherein the combination of non-ionic surfactants comprises: (i) at least one fatty acid ester of a sugar or sugar alcohol and (ii) at least one pegylated fatty acid ester of a sugar or sugar alcohol; (E) an acidic pH, but no greater than a pH of 4.5; and (F) an osmolality of < 200 mOsmol/Kg H2O.
