Title
(EN) Suspension of loteprednol etabonate for ear, eye, or nose treatment
Abstract
(EN)

The invention provides novel compositions of matter containing water-insoluble steroid drugs suitable for therapeutic use. The invention provides stable aqueous suspensions of water-insoluble steroid drugs of particle sizes of .ltoreq.15 .mu.m which remain in such a state so as to allow for immediate suspension, when desired, even after extended periods of settling.
