Description

  The present invention relates to a package for patch. More specifically, the present invention relates to a package for a patch that can secure a display area for the usage method and precautions of the patch and can visually confirm the presence of the patch as a content.

Since ancient times, patches have been widely used for the treatment of compresses and stiff shoulders. In recent years, a sheet-like patch having systemic effects such as treatment and prevention of heart disease, motion sickness and hypertension has been developed and has made great progress.
In addition, the improvement of the preparation of the patch has progressed, and a thin sheet-like preparation having a simple structure has been increased in place of a multi-layered complicated structure preparation or a thick preparation.
Many of these patches are commercialized and distributed in a form in which each preparation is packaged in one package to ensure the stability of the preparation and prevent misuse. Three types of packages are known: opaque on both sides, opaque on one side and transparent on the other side, and transparent on both sides.

  The primary purpose of patch packaging is to protect the drug product and ensure stability, but at the same time, it plays an important role as a display for usage and precautions. Plays. Since these patches are pharmaceuticals developed in recent years, their administration methods have not become common sense in society. In addition, depending on the preparation, there are various application sites and intervals of application. Furthermore, misuse of a preparation having a systemic action may not only provide a therapeutic effect but also cause serious side effects. Therefore, it is extremely important to display the product name, usage, and precautions appropriately for each preparation, and in fact, a lot of preparations are individually displayed. The importance of product safety and the prevention of medical accidents is increasing as society demands them.

Of the three types of package described above, it is clear that an opaque package on both sides is most advantageous in order to ensure a wide display surface. In other words, when a double-sided transparent package is displayed on both sides, the display items overlap and do not play a role of display. Even when displayed on one side, the internal preparation becomes an obstacle and the legibility is impaired. Even when the preparation itself is plain, the background color of the display is different between the part that overlaps the preparation and the other parts, so the legibility deteriorates, but there are products that display the usage and product name on the preparation itself. In this case, the legibility is significantly impaired. In the case of a package that is transparent only on one side, the opaque side can be used well as a display side, but the transparent side is obstructed by the internal preparation and the legibility is impaired. On the other hand, a packaging body that is opaque on both sides can be effectively used as a display surface on both sides.
Therefore, it is preferable that both sides of the package of the patch are opaque, and many of the products that are currently distributed use a package that is opaque on both sides.

  By the way, as described above, thinner preparations have been commercialized for the purpose of improving the sticking feeling and reducing the manufacturing cost, but this has raised unexpected problems. That is, it cannot be easily confirmed from the outer shape of the package that the preparation is enclosed in the package.

Since pharmaceutical products are manufactured under a strict quality control system, in reality, it is considered that there is almost no defect that the preparation is not enclosed in the package. However, the formulation body may fall out of the bag or pop out when opened. Usually, the user notices that the preparation has fallen, but in rare cases it may be mistaken that the preparation has not been enclosed.
Since medicines such as heart disease medicines are handed over to a patient based on a doctor's prescription, even if one is lost, it becomes a therapeutic obstacle. In addition, it is a serious negligence for pharmaceutical manufacturers to ship empty bags that do not contain any preparations, and such complaints are inevitably difficult to deal with.

By making both sides or one side of the package transparent, it can be easily confirmed that the preparation is contained before opening, and the occurrence of such therapeutic obstacles and complaints can be largely prevented. As described above, the display surface is greatly reduced, and appropriate display becomes difficult.
Accordingly, there has been a demand for a packaging form that ensures a display surface for the usage method and precautions of the patch and that allows easy confirmation of the preparation before opening.

  The present invention was made in order to solve the above-described problems associated with the package of the patch, and can ensure the maximum display area and at the same time easily confirm the patch before opening. The purpose is to provide a package.

  The package of the patch of the present invention is a package comprising a sheet-like patch contained in a substantially opaque packaging material, and a transparent window for visually confirming the patch is provided. It has in a part of surface of at least one side of a package, It is characterized by the above-mentioned.

  The patch is in the form of a sheet, and the package containing the patch is usually in the form of a sheet. These shapes are generally rectangular, rounded rectangular, circular, and elliptical. In order to ensure a wide display surface, it is preferable that the package has a substantially rectangular shape (including a rounded rectangle). Moreover, in order to make it easier to visually confirm the patch from a transparent window, it is preferable that the position and angle of the patch in the package are constant, and from this point, the shape of the patch and the package are respectively It is preferable that the shape is substantially rectangular (including rounded rectangles). By providing a transparent window on a part of the surface of at least one side of the package so that a part of the patch can be seen, the patch can be visually confirmed without opening. FIG. 1 is a plan view of an example of a package according to the present invention, and FIG. 2 is a sectional view thereof.

Display items such as information on the package of the patch are displayed in normal characters and further combined with a figure as necessary. The transparent window of the present invention is preferably provided in a portion where such display items are not printed because the preparation can be confirmed without substantially reducing the display surface. The above display items are generally designed so that the shape of the display range of characters, figures, etc. is rectangular or a combination thereof in order to provide an efficient and easy-to-understand display on a limited display surface. is there. Therefore, it is preferable that the area where the display items are not printed is also rectangular or a combination thereof, and the transparent window is preferably substantially rectangular.
3 and 4 are schematic views showing examples of information display in the package of the patch. A rectangular portion indicated by diagonal lines is a portion that is not displayed and can be effectively used as a window of the package of the present invention.

  When the outer side of the patch is included in the window, visual confirmation becomes easier than when the entire surface of the window is the patch. Therefore, the window of the present invention is preferably arranged so that a part of the outer periphery of the patch can be visually confirmed.

  In order to ensure that a part of the outer periphery of the patch is visible, for example, one point on the outer periphery of the package inner effective region, the side length (b) of the inner effective region of the package, and the side length of the patch This can be achieved by providing a window in a continuous region so as to include one point on the outer periphery and another point on the inner side by a distance (c) larger than the difference of (a). Here, the outer periphery of the packaging body effective area refers to a sealing portion of the packaging body that is applied to enclose the patch. FIG. 5 is an example of a window provided so that the outer side of the patch can be seen. By providing the window so that c> (ba), a part of the outer periphery of the patch can be seen even when the patch is present at the end of the package.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 6, by providing the window so as to include a corner portion of the patch that is substantially rectangular in the window, visual confirmation is further facilitated than in the case of including the outer straight portion. . Moreover, as shown in FIG. 7, it is effective from the point of visual confirmation easiness and the effective use of a non-display part that a window is a rectangle containing 1 point on the outer periphery of a packaging body inside effective area | region.

  Moreover, as shown in FIG. 8, by providing an elongated rectangular window whose long side exceeds the side length of the patch, two places on the outer periphery (outer straight line portion) of the patch can be seen. This is preferable because visual confirmation of the patch is further facilitated. Furthermore, by providing such a rectangular window with a long side in parallel with the outer side of the package, the influence on the display items can be reduced, which is more preferable.

  When the shape of the window is rectangular, if the length of the short side is less than 3 mm, it tends to be difficult to confirm the patch, and if it exceeds 10 mm, the ease of confirmation of the patch is not much affected. I do not receive it. In order to reduce the influence on the display by visual confirmation, when the shape of the window is rectangular, it is more preferable that the length of the short side is 3 mm to 6 mm.

  The package of the present invention has a feature that a thin sheet-like patch can be easily confirmed without opening the package. When the thickness of the patch exceeds 1 mm, the bulge of the package can be visually confirmed even if it is packaged in a completely opaque package, and the presence of the patch can be felt even if it is held in the hand. Therefore, the package of the present invention is particularly effective when encapsulating a patch having a thickness of 1 mm or less.

  The package of the present invention comprises a transparent window and a substantially opaque packaging material. Here, “substantially opaque” means an opacity that is higher than the extent that the transparent internal patch or the printing on the other side does not interfere with the interpretation of the display items. Specifically, “JIS P 8149: 2000 paper and paperboard-Opacity is preferably 50% or more when measured according to the opacity measurement method defined in "Opacity test method (backing of paper)-diffuse illumination method". .

As the transparent window portion, a transparent film is preferably used, and a single-layer or laminated plastic film is preferable.
Examples of the substantially opaque part of the package of the patch include a plastic film obtained by laminating paper and aluminum foil, and an opaque printed or vapor-deposited plastic film. The packaging material on at least one side having a transparent window is preferably manufactured by performing opaque printing on a transparent plastic film in addition to the window portion.

As a normal package, a laminate of paper and aluminum foil is often used. However, when manufacturing the package of the present invention using such an opaque material, paper or aluminum with a hole is used. It is necessary to laminate the foils, which not only makes the production complicated, but also likely causes a loss of the barrier properties normally required by the patch. Recently, a plastic film having a transparent and excellent barrier property such as a silica vapor deposited film has been developed, and it is easy to achieve the necessary barrier property without laminating an aluminum foil.
The package containing the patch of the present invention can be easily produced by appropriately using various techniques used in this field.

In the package of the present invention, it is preferable to use a single-layer or laminated plastic film on at least one surface having the window portion.
As a material of the plastic film, a material suitable for packaging can be used, and the material is not particularly limited. Examples include polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, vinyl chloride resin, vinylidene chloride resin, polyacrylonitrile copolymer, and the like.

  The printing for making the transparent film opaque and the printing of the display items may be printed anywhere on the outer surface, the inner surface, or in the case of the laminated film. In the case of a laminated film, by printing between the layers, it is robust and good without contaminating the patch.

  The printing color that makes the transparent film opaque preferably has a color (lightness, saturation and / or color tone) different from the color of the preparation body so as to facilitate identification.

  The pharmaceutical application of the patch used in the present invention is not particularly limited, for example, heart disease drugs such as nitroglycerin and isosorbide nitrate, hormonal drugs such as estradiol, local anesthetics such as lidocaine, and anti-inflammatory drugs such as indomethacin. Drugs, analgesics such as fentanyl, antihypertensive drugs such as clonidine, asthma drugs such as tulobuterol, and smoking cessation aids such as nicotine.

  ADVANTAGE OF THE INVENTION According to this invention, the packaging body of the patch which can ensure the maximum display area and can confirm a patch easily before opening simultaneously can be obtained easily.
