Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • This application is a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 11/379,423 filed Apr. 20, 2006, which is a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 10/247,765 filed Sep. 18, 2002, now U.S. Pat. No. 7,148,211, both of which are incorporated herein by reference in their entirety.
  • STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH OR DEVELOPMENT
  • Not Applicable
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention relates to pharmaceutical formulations of lipophilic therapeutic agents in which such agents are solubilized in largely aqueous vehicles, and uses for such formulations. The formulations are stable in aqueous-based vehicles, and have therapeutically and commercially useful concentrations of active ingredient.
  • Many pharmacologically active substances are lipophilic, i.e., only sparingly or negligibly water-soluble. Lipophilic therapeutic agents span the entire range of biologically and/or pharmacologically active substances. For example, they include certain analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents, anti-asthma agents, anti-bacterial agents, anti-viral agents, anti-coagulants, anti-depressants, anti-neoplastic agents and immunosuppressants, β-blockers, corticosteroids, opioid analgesics, lipid regulating agents, anxiolytics, sedatives, hypnotics and neuroleptics.
  • The poor water-solubility of these lipophilic agents often results in major difficulties in formulation, particularly when easily sterilizable and administrable homogeneous aqueous solutions are needed. Efficacious aqueous-based formulations are particularly problematic for systemic administration, in particular parenteral administration (i.e., injectable solutions) and for certain liquid preparations for, e.g., topical gynecologic, dermatologic ophthalmic, etc. use, and for use on the oral mucous membranes.
  • A number of approaches for obtaining aqueous compositions of sparingly water-soluble drugs are known. Such approaches seek to increase the solubility, and accordingly, increase the ease of formulation and the bioavailability of the sparingly soluble or lipophilic active agents. One such approach involves chemical modification of the lipophilic drug by introduction of a ionic or ionizable group or a group that lowers the melting point. The former generally depends upon the lipophilic drug having a hydroxyl or carboxy group which can be used to form various kinds of esters. The latter is based on the concept that, to be solubilized, the molecules have to leave the crystal lattice. Any modification of the molecule that lowers the melting point, and thus reduces the energy of the crystal lattice, tends to increase the solubility thereof in any solvent.
  • Another method involves physico-chemical solubilization techniques such as micellar solubilization by means of surface-active agents, i.e., the use of surfactant micelles to solubilize and transport the therapeutic agent. Micelles are agglomerates of colloidal dimensions formed by amphiphilic compounds under certain conditions. Micelles, and pharmaceutical compositions containing micelles, have been extensively studied and are described in detail in the literature. In aqueous solution, micelles can incorporate lipophilic therapeutic agents in the hydrocarbon core of the micelle, or can entangle the agents at various positions within the micelle walls. Although micellar formulations can solubilize a variety of lipophilic therapeutic agents, the loading capacity of conventional micelle formulations is limited by the solubility of the therapeutic agent in the micelle surfactant. For many lipophilic therapeutic agents, such solubility is too low to offer formulations that can deliver therapeutically effective doses.
  • The formation of complexes, solid solutions and solid dispersions by means of the use of suitable polymers is another approach for increasing the water-solubility of pharmaceutically active substances. In such a case, the active ingredient is incorporated in a suitable hydrophilic carrier, which increases the solubility and the bioavailability thereof without any formal covalent bonds originating between the drug and the polymer matrix. The difference between a solid solution and a solid dispersion is typically in the form of the active ingredient. In a solid solution, the active is present in the amorphous molecular form, while in a dispersion the active is present in a crystalline form, as fine as possible.
  • Even more widespread and studied is the use of the interaction between a polymer and a drug to give rise to a true complex, wherein chemical bonds of a noncovalent nature are involved. Complexing polymers employed in the pharmaceutical field include, e.g., polyethylene glycols, polypropylene glycols, cyclodextrins, carboxymethylcellulose, polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)
  • Co-precipitation is yet another widespread method for the preparation of complexes with increased solubility. In this method, the substance and the polymer are dissolved in an organic solvent in which they are both soluble, and the solution is then evaporated at atmospheric pressure, under vacuum, by spray-drying or by lyophilization, to yield a dry product actually made of the complex of the treated drug. Such complexes can also be obtained by applying other methods, such as grinding and mixing the ingredients in a mill, or by extrusion of a paste containing the two products together with a minor amount of water, etc. In comparison with the starting drug, the complex typically shows an appreciably enhanced water-solubility.
  • In devising a working method for solubilizing drugs by complexation, it is necessary to take into account the molecular weight of the polymer, since the solubility of the active ingredient directly depends thereon. In general, low molecular weights are more suitable than medium to high molecular weights.
  • Still another method involves use of various co-solvent systems, i.e., compositions using a solvent mixture containing water and one or more organic solvents. One approach to solubilizing lipophilic drug agents in aqueous systems is to employ some combination of alcohols and glycols (PDA J. Pharm. Sci. Technol. 50(5) 1996; U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,136,799; 6,361,758 and 5,858,999) Organic contents as high as 50% or more are often required to ensure solubility during manufacturing, storage and administration. Although organic levels while high will still be below the LD50 for a low volume parenteral dosage, the amounts are still typically undesirable. High levels of organic solvent can cause pain on injection and tissue necrosis.
  • Other methods involve the formation of complexes by the addition of chelating agents such as citric acid, tartaric acid, amino acids, thioglycolic acid and edetate disodium. Others use buffering agents such as acetate, citrate, glutamate and phosphate salts. However, buffers and chelating agents have been implicated in imparting aluminum levels in products to in excess of 3.5 parts per million leading to adverse side effects. (International Patent Application Publication WO 96/36340) Moreover, certain chelating agents such as EDTA have be implicated in adverse effects such nephrotoxicity and renal tubular necrosis. (U.S. Pat. No. 6,361,758)
  • Each of these foregoing methods has its inherent limitations. For many of the pharmaceutical substances, the solubility levels that can be achieved with one or another of the methods discussed above are still insufficient to make their use in aqueous-based commercial products viable.
  • An exemplary and important class of lipophilic drug agents are the vitamin D compounds. Properly metabolized vitamin D compounds are necessary for the maintenance of healthy bones and have been found to display more other biological activities. The lipophilicity of the natural forms of vitamin D and of the many known synthetic analogs of vitamin D makes it difficult to manufacture an efficacious formulation, particularly, a parenteral formulation which is preferred for, e.g., renal dialysis patients.
  • Additionally, vitamin D compounds, among other lipophilic compounds, are known to be oxygen sensitive, being oxidized when exposed to air, and thus, losing integrity. One approach to circumventing this problem is to add an antioxidant directly to a formulation of the drug. However, certain antioxidants, such as ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbate, which are highly water soluble, will discolor in the course of performing their intended function. Buffers and/or chelating agents have also been added to decrease oxygen sensitivity thus maintaining active drug potency (U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,308,264; 4,948,788 and 5,182,274.) However, as noted above, buffers and chelating agents are known to introduce undesirable levels of aluminum into the product.
  • Thus, there is a need for pharmaceutical formulations of lipophilic therapeutic agents that overcome the limitations of the many known approaches.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention provides a pharmaceutical formulation that overcomes the problems associated with parenteral formulations of lipophilic drugs. The present invention provides a formulation that can be terminally sterilized, and contains little or no organic solvent such as alcohol. It has also been surprisingly discovered that the novel formulations of the present invention provide a synergistic solubilizing and antioxidative effect. Additionally, the present invention allows for the inclusion or occlusion of aseptic agents, depending on the intended use and/or handling.
  • The present invention provides a pharmaceutical formulation comprising a therapeutically effective amount of (1) a lipophilic therapeutic agent, (4) a non-ionic solubilizer, (3) a lipophilic antioxidant, and (4) optionally, an agent that is an organic solvent, or a preservative (e.g., antimicrobial), or both, in an aqueous vehicle. Lipophilic therapeutic agents suitable for use in the formulations of the present invention are not particularly limited. Agents of particular interest include vitamin D compounds and analogs. By employing a lipophilic, i.e., fat-soluble, antioxidant, smaller amounts of antioxidant may be used compared to known formulations utilizing water soluble antioxidants.
  • The formulations of the present invention preclude the need for high organic solvent contents, which can cause irritations in some patients. In addition, formulations of the present invention omit buffers and chelating agents. The use of buffers and chelating agents in, e.g., some prior vitamin D formulations, has been linked to the introduction of undesirable aluminum levels into the product and eventually into the patient.
  • The invention also relates to methods for the treatment and/or prophylaxis of certain diseases and disorders comprising administering, e.g., parenterally, to a patient in need thereof a formulation in accordance with the present invention. For example, for formulations containing vitamin D compounds or analogs, these diseases include hyperparathyroidism, e.g., secondary hyperparathyroidsim, neoplastic diseases, such as cancers of the pancreas, breast, colon or prostate as well as other diseases of abnormal cell differentiation and/or cell proliferation such as psoriasis, and disorders of calcium metabolism such as osteomalacia.
  • Other advantages and a fuller appreciation of the specific attributes of this invention will be gained upon an examination of the following detailed description of the invention, and appended claims.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • Not applicable.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention provides a stable, self-preserved pharmaceutical formulation of a lipophilic therapeutic agent in aqueous vehicle utilizing a non-ionic solubilizer and lipophilic antioxidant. The formulation is suitable for parenteral administration.
  • As used herein, “lipophilic” in reference to a therapeutic agent or drug is intended to mean a sparingly (or poorly, slightly, scarcely) soluble biologically active or pharmaceutically active substance or antigen-comprising material, which has a therapeutic or prophylactic effect, and has utility in the treatment or prevention of diseases or disorders affecting mammals, including humans, or in the regulation of an animal or human physiological condition. The water-solubility of lipophilic drugs, at room temperature, is typically too low to make commercially proposable, sufficiently active or advantageous any aqueous preparations containing the compound as an active ingredient. Lipophilic therapeutic agents include substances, typically compounds, with little or no water solubility. Intrinsic water solubilities (i.e., water solubility of the unionized form) for lipophilic therapeutic agents usable in the present invention include, for example, those with a solubility of less than about 1% by weight, and typically less than about 0.1% or 0.01% by weight, or, e.g., less than about 10 μg/mL.
  • Lipophilic therapeutic agents suitable for use in the formulations of the present invention are not particularly limited, as the method of the present invention is surprisingly capable of solubilizing and delivering a wide variety of lipophilic therapeutic agents. Therapeutic agents that can be utilized with the formulations of the present invention may be selected from a wide range of biologically and/or pharmacologically active substances which lack adequate solubility in aqueous systems without a solubilizing agent. Such therapeutic agents include any agents having therapeutic or other value when administered to an animal, particularly to a mammal, such as drugs, prodrugs (i.e., agents than transform into active substances), nutrients (nutraceuticals), and cosmetics (cosmeceuticals). Such therapeutic agents can be utilized in formulations in accordance with the present invention so as to yield an effective therapeutic dose, e.g., for parenteral administration. The precise biological and/or pharmacological activity of the substance is immaterial, so long as the substance can be solubilized in the present formulations.
  • Specific non-limiting examples of lipophilic therapeutic agents that can be used in the formulations of the present invention include the following representative compounds, as well as their pharmaceutically acceptable salts, isomers, esters, ethers and other derivatives. These include:

  • It should be appreciated that this listing of lipophilic therapeutic agents and their therapeutic classes is merely illustrative. Indeed, a particular feature, and surprising advantage, of the formulations of the present invention is the ability of the present formulations to solubilize and deliver a broad range of lipophilic therapeutic agents, regardless of functional class. Of course, mixtures of lipophilic therapeutic agents may also be used where desired.
  • Examples of lipophilic agents of particular interest include active vitamin D compounds. As used herein, the term “activated vitamin D” or “active vitamin D” is intended to include any biologically active vitamin D compound, including a pro-drug (or pro-hormone), a precursor, a metabolite or an analog, in any stage of its metabolism. It is known that vitamin D compounds display a variety of biological activities, e.g., in calcium and phosphate metabolism (see, e.g., U.S. Pat. No. 5,104,864), as an antineoplastic agent (see, e.g., U.S. Pat. No. 5,763,429), and as an anti-hyperparthyroid agent (see, e.g., U.S. Pat. No. 5,602,116), and it is contemplated that any of the biologically active forms of vitamin D can be used in the formulations in accordance with the present invention. Generally, an active vitamin D compound or analog is hydroxylated in at least the C-1, C-24 or C-25 position of the molecule, and either the compound itself or its metabolite binds to the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Pro-drugs, for example, include vitamin D compounds that are hydroxylated in the C-1. Such compounds undergo further hydroxylation in vivo and their metabolites bind the VDR.
  • Precursors include previtamins, such as 1α-hydroxyprevitamin D2, 1α,24-dihydroxyprevitamin D2, 1α,25-dihydroxyprevitamin D2, 24-hydroxyprevitamin D2, 1α-hydroxyprevitamin D3 and 1α,25-dihydroxyprevitamin D3, which are thermal isomeric forms of the vitamin forms. Metabolites generally include compounds or analogs that have undergone further metabolic processing, e.g., hydroxylation.
  • Examples of vitamin D compounds suitable for formulations of the present invention include, without limitation, 1α,24-dihydroxyvitamin D2, 1α,2-dihydroxyvitamin D4, 1α,24-dihydroxyvitamin D2, 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (calcitriol), 1α hydroxyvitamin D3 (α-calcidol) 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D2, 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D4, and 1α,24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D2, seocalcitol (EB-1089), calcipotriol, 22-oxacalcitriol (maxacalcitol), fluorinated compounds such as falecalcitriol, and 19-nor compounds such as paricalcitol. Among those compounds having a chiral center, e.g., in the sidechain, such as at C-24, it is understood that both epimers (e.g., R and S) and the epimeric mixture are within the scope of the present invention.
  • It also is understood that any numerical value recited herein includes all values from the lower value to the upper value. For example, if a concentration range is stated as 1% to 50%, it is intended that values such as 2% to 40%, 10% to 30%, or 1% to 3%, etc., are expressly enumerated in this specification. These are only examples of what is specifically intended, and all possible combinations of numerical values between the lowest value and the highest value enumerated are to be considered to be expressly stated in this application.
  • The amount of selected therapeutic is not critical to the present invention and may be varied to achieve the desired therapeutic response for a particular patient. The amount of active therapeutic agent in the formulations of the invention will be dependent, in part, on the solubility of the specific surfactant used and its intended use. Those skilled in the arts can adjust the ratios without undue experimentation. The selected dosage also will depend on the activity of the specific therapeutic, the route of administration, the severity of the condition being treated and the condition and history of the specific patient. For example, a therapeutic dose for vitamin D-type compounds may range between about 2 μg and about 100 μg/dose.
  • Suitable solubilizing agents for the formulations of the present invention include nonionic solubilizers. A non-ionic solubilizer is one where the hydrophilic part of the solubilizer carries no charge but derives its water solubility from highly polar groups such as hydroxyl or polyoxyethylene groups. Some surfactants known for use in the pharmaceutical field also have a solubilizing function.
  • Solubilizers generally include, but are not limited to, the polyoxyalkylenes dextrans, fatty acid esters of saccharose, fatty alcohol ethers of oligoglucosides (e.g., the alkylpolyglucosides such as TRITON™), fatty acid esters of glycerol (e.g., glycerol mono/distearate or glycerol monolaurate), and polyoxyethylene type compounds (e.g., POE, PEG, PEO, SOLUTOL™ CREOMOPHOR™S, MACROGOL, CARBOWAX, POLYOXYL). The latter also include polyethoxylated fatty acid esters of sorbitan (e.g., polysorbates, such as TWEEN™s, SPAN™s), fatty acid esters of poly(ethylene oxide) (e.g., polyoxyethylene stearates), fatty alcohol ethers of poly(ethylene oxide) (e.g., polyoxyethylated lauryl ether), alkylphenol ethers of poty(ethylene oxide) (e.g., polyethoxylated octylphenol), polyoxyethylene-polyoxypropylene block copolymers (also known as poloxamers, such as “Pluronic”), and ethoxylated fats and oils (e.g., ethoxylated castor oil, or polyoxyethylated castor oil, also known as polyethylene glycol-glyceryl triricinoleate). Mixtures of solublilizers are also within the scope of the invention. Such mixtures are readily available from standard commercial sources. Solubilizers of particular interest include polysorbates, e.g. TWEEN™. Amounts of such solubilizer present in the formulations of the present invention include from about 0.05% to about 5% w/w.
  • Suitable lipophilic antioxidants include, but are not limited to, butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), lipoic acid, lycopene, lutein, lycophyll, xanthophyll, carotene, zeaxanthin or vitamin E and/or esters thereof. The lipophilic antioxidants are present in very small but effective amounts, e.g., about 20 to about 2000 ppm.
  • If desired, formulations of the present invention can optionally include additional agents to enhance the solubility of the lipophilic therapeutic agent in the carrier system. Examples of such optional agents include organics solvents, preservatives or both. Such agents include alcohols and polyols, such as ethanol, benzyl alcohol, chlorobutanol, isopropanol, butanol, ethylene glycol, propylene glycol, butanediols, glycerol, pentaerythritol, sorbitol, mannitol, transcutol, dimethyl isosorbide, polyethylene glycol, polypropylene glycol, polyvinylalcohol, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose and other cellulose derivatives, cyclodextrins and cyclodextrin derivatives. Amounts of optional agents include 0% to about 30% w/w, e.g., organic solvent. A useful range is 0% to about 10% w/w, and a particularly useful range is about 1% to about 3%.
  • Accordingly, a formulation in accordance with the present invention includes a lipophilic drug agent (e.g., a drug agent with a solubility in water of <10 μg/mL), about 0.05% to about 5% w/w of a non-ionic solubilizer, about 20 to about 2000 ppm lipophilic antioxidant, and 0% to about 30% w/w optional agent. A particular formulation for treating secondary hyperparathyroidism includes 2-6 μg/mL 1α-hydroxyvitamin D2 (doxercalciferol), 2.5% w/w benzyl alcohol, 0.5%-2.5% w/w TWEEN™-20, and 20 ppm BHT. The amount of optional agent, e.g., benzyl alcohol or ethanol, may range from 0 to 30% w/w; a highly useful range comprises 1% to 3% w/w. With a vitamin D formulation (e.g., a doxercalciferol formulation), a most useful amount of optional agent comprises 2.5% w/w.
  • A pharmaceutical formulation in accordance with the present invention comprises an aqueous vehicle. The aqueous vehicle contains, of course, water, but it may furthermore also contain pH adjusting agents, stabilizing agents, solubilizing agent (see, hereinabove), isotonic adjusting agents, and solvents (e.g. organic solvents; as discussed above). A formulation in accordance with the present invention precludes the need for high organic solvent which can cause irritation in some patients. In some cases, however, it may be appropriate to include an organic solvent or co-solvents. The amount of water in a formulation in accordance with the present invention is normally at least about from about 50% to about 99% w/w.
  • For the pharmaceutical formulations of the present invention, the intended route of administration is suitably parenteral, i.e., for use by injection into, e.g., an animal or human body. Such route includes intravenous, intramuscular and subcutaneous administration, the intravenous route being especially suitable for the formulations of the present invention for use in connection with, e.g., secondary hyperparathyroidism or neoplastic disorders.
  • However, whenever relevant, formulations in accordance with the present invention may also be suitable for use by other administration routes such as, e.g., the oral route, the topical route or the nasal route. In such cases, a person skilled in the art can make any necessary adjustments with respect to the concentration of the active substance and with respect to the other ingredients included in the formulation.
  • A formulation in accordance with the present invention is normally presented as an aqueous solution. However, in certain cases such as, e.g., in connection with the administration of a formulation by the topical or oral route, a formulation in accordance with the present invention may include a liquid composition which may be presented in the form of a solution or a gel.
  • Pharmaceutical formulations may be readily prepared by using pharmacopoeia grade reagents in which the reagents are made up in stock solutions from which the resulting solutions at the appropriate concentrations can be made. Once the appropriate amounts of stock solution and combined, it is often desirable to stir the reagents for several minutes under nitrogen gas gently blown over the top of the mixture, i.e., a nitrogen gas overlay. Degassed Water for Injection is then added to bring the desired final volume, and stirring under nitrogen gas continued for another several minutes.
  • A pharmaceutical formulation in accordance with the present invention containing a vitamin D compound or a vitamin D analogue like those substances described above, is suitable for use in the treatment and/or prophylaxis of (i) diseases or conditions characterized by abnormal cell differentiation and/or cell hyperproliferation such as, e.g., psoriasis and other disturbances of keratinisation, neoplastic diseases and cancers, such as pancreas, breast, colon and prostate cancers as well as skin cancer; (ii) diseases of, or imbalance in, the immune system, such as host-versus-graft and graft-versus-host reaction and transplant rejection, and auto-immune diseases such as discoid and systemic lupus erythematosus, diabetes mellitus and chronic dermatoses of auto-immune type, e.g., scleroderma and pemphigus vulgaris; (iii) inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis as well as in the treatment and/or prophylaxis of a number of (iv) other diseases or disease states, including hyperparathyroidism, particularly secondary hyperparathyroidism associated with renal failure, and in promoting (v) osteogenesis and treating/preventing bone loss as in osteoporosis and osteosmalacia. (For use of vitamin D compounds for treatment and prophylaxis, see, e.g., U.S. Pat. Nos. 5,9722,917; 5,798,345; 5,763,428; 5,602,116; 5,869,386; 5,104,864; 5,403,831; 5,880,114; 5,561,123. The vitamin D formulations in accordance with the present invention are especially suited for treatment of cell hyperproliferative disorders; disorders of the calcium metabolism, such as osteomalacia; or neoplastic diseases, such as cancers of the pancreas, breast, colon or prostate. The method of treatment comprises treating the cells and/or administering to a patient in need thereof a formulation in accordance with the present invention in an amount that is effective to amelariate or prevent the disease or disorder. For example, in the treatment of hyperproliferative or neoplastic diseases, an effective amount is, e.g., a growth-inhibiting amount. Daily dosages as well as episodic doses, e.g., once per week to three times per week, are contemplated.
  • Additionally, as described hereinabove, vitamin D compounds in accordance with the present invention include prodrugs, i.e., drugs that require further metabolic processing in vivo, e.g., additional hydroxlation. Such prodrugs of vitamin D compounds that have been found to be effective therapeutic agents are generally less reactive than, e.g., the dihydroxy natural hormone, 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3. These compounds may offer further advantage for use in formulations.
  • In addition, formulations of the current invention may be terminally sterilized by means of e.g., autoclaving.
  • The present invention is further explained by the following examples which should not be construed by way of limiting the scope of the present invention.
  • Preparation of Stock Solutions Example 1 Doxercalciferol (1α-hydroxyvitamin D2) Stock Solution
  • 12.558 mg of doxercalciferol was weighed and transferred to a 10-mL volumetric flask. The solid was diluted to volume with ethanol and the flask was vigorously shaken to dissolve the solid.
  • Example 2 Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) Stock Solution

  • Use of Formulations Example 5 Double-blind Study in End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Patients Exhibiting Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
  • Up to 120 ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis are studied in a multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled study based in two major U.S. metropolitan areas. The selected patients reside in two major metropolitan areas within the continental U.S., have ages between 20 and 75 years and have a history of secondary hyperparathyroidism. They have been on hemodialysis for at least four months, have a normal (or near normal) serum albumin, and have controlled serum phosphorus (often by using oral calcium phosphate binders).
  • On admission to the study, each patient is assigned at random to one of two treatment groups. One of these groups receives two consecutive 12-week courses of therapy with 1α-OH-vitamin D2 (doxercalciferol); the other receives a 12-week course of therapy with 1α-OH-vitamin D2 followed, without interruption, by a 12-week course of placebo therapy. Each patient discontinues any 1α,25-(OH)2-vitamin D3 therapy for eight weeks prior to initiating 1α-OH-vitamin D2 therapy (daily dose of 4 μg doxercalciferol, formulated with 2.5% w/w benzyl alcohol, 0.5%-2.5% w/w TWEEN™-20, and 20 ppm BHT). Throughout this eight-week washout (or control) period and the two subsequent 12-week treatment periods, patients are monitored weekly for serum calcium and phosphorus. Serum intact PTH is monitored weekly or biweekly, and bone-specific serum markers, serum vitamin D metabolites, serum albumin, blood chemistries, hemoglobin and hematocrit are monitored at selected intervals.
  • During the study, patients undergo routine hemodialysis (three times per week) using a 1.24 mM calcium dialysate and ingest calcium phosphate binders (such as calcium carbonate or calcium acetate) in an amount sufficient to keep serum phosphate controlled (6.9 mg/dL). Patients who develop persistent mild hypercalcemia or mild hyperphosphatemia during the treatment periods reduce their 1α-OH-vitamin D2 to 4 μg three times per week (or lower). Patients who develop marked hypercalcemia or marked hyperphosphatemia immediately suspend treatment. Such patients are monitored at twice weekly intervals until the serum calcium or phosphorus is normalized, and resume 1α-OH-vitamin D2 dosing at a rate which is 4 μg three times per week (or lower).
  • During the eight-week washout period, the mean serum level of PTH increases progressively and significantly. After initiation of 1α-OH-vitamin D2 dosing, mean serum PTH decreases significantly to less than 50% of pretreatment levels. Due to this drop in serum PTH, some patients need to reduce their dosage of 1α-OH-vitamin D2 to 4 μg three times per week (or to even lower levels) to prevent excessive suppression of serum PTH. In such patients, exhibiting excessive suppression of serum PTH, transient mild hypercalcemia is observed, which is corrected by appropriate reductions in 1α-OH-vitamin D2 dosages.
  • At the end of the first 12-week treatment period, mean serum PTH is in the desired range of 130 to 240 pg/mL and serum levels of calcium and phosphorus are normal or near normal for end stage renal disease patients. At the end of the second 12-week treatment period (during which time 1α-OH-vitamin D2 treatment is suspended and replaced by placebo therapy), mean serum PTH values markedly increase, reaching pretreatment levels. This study demonstrates that: (1) 1α-OH-vitamin D2 is effective in reducing serum PTH levels, and (2) 1α-OH-vitamin D2 is safer than currently used therapies, despite its higher dosages and concurrent use of high levels of oral calcium phosphate binder.
  • Example 6 Open Label Study of Elderly Subjects with Elevated Blood PTH from Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
  • Thirty elderly subjects with secondary hyperparathyroidism are enrolled in an open label study. The selected subjects have ages between 60 and 100 years and have elevated serum PTH levels (greater than the upper limit of young normal range). Subjects also have femoral neck osteopenia (femoral neck bone mineral density of 0.70 μg/cm2).
  • Subjects are requested to keep a diet providing approximately 500 mg calcium per day without the use of calcium supplements. For a twelve week treatment period, subjects self-administer orally 2.5 μg/day 1α-OH-vitamin D2. (i.e., 2.5 μg doxercalciferol, 2.5% w/w benzyl alcohol, 0.5%-2.5% w/w TWEEN™-20, and 20 ppm BHT) At regular intervals throughout the treatment period, subjects are monitored for serum PTH levels, serum calcium and phosphorus, and urine calcium and phosphorus levels. Efficacy is evaluated by pre- and post-treatment comparisons of serum PTH levels. Safety is evaluated by serum and urine calcium and phosphorus values.
  • The administration of 1α-OH-vitamin D2 is shown to significantly reduce PTH levels with an insignificant incidence of hypercalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, hypercalciuria and hyperphosphaturia.
  • Example 7 Clinical Studies of 1α,24-(OH)2D2 in Treatment of Prostate Cancer
  • Patients with advanced androgen-independent prostate cancer participate in an open-labeled study of 1α,24-(OH)2D2. Qualified patients are at least 40 years old, exhibit histologic evidence of adenocarcinoma of the prostate, and present with progressive disease which had previously responded to hormonal intervention(s). On admission to the study, patients begin a course of therapy with intravenous 1α,24-(OH)2D2 lasting 26 weeks, while discontinuing any previous use of calcium supplements, vitamin D supplements, and vitamin D hormone replacement therapies. During treatment, the patients are monitored at regular intervals for: (1) hypercalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, hypercalciuria, hyperphosphaturia and other toxicity; (2) evidence of changes in the progression of metastatic disease; and (3) compliance with the prescribed test drug dosage.
  • The study is conducted in two phases. During the first phase, the maximal tolerated dosage (MTD) of daily 1α,24-(OH)2D2 is determined by administering progressively higher dosages to successive groups of patients. All doses are administered in the morning before breakfast. The first group of patients is treated with 25.0 μg of 1α,24-(OH)2D2 (formulated with 2.5% w/w benzyl alcohol, 0.5%-2.5% w/w TWEEN™-20, and 20 ppm BHT). Subsequent groups of patients are treated with 50.0, 75.0 and 100.0 μg/day. Dosing is continued uninterrupted for the duration of the study unless serum calcium exceeds 11.6 mg/dL, or other toxicity of grade 3 or 4 is observed, in which case dosing is held in abeyance until resolution of the observed toxic effect(s) and then resumed at a level which has been decreased by 10.0 μg.
  • Results from the first phase of the study show that the MTD for 1α,24-(OH)2D2 is above 20.0 μg/day, a level which is 10- to 40-fold higher than can be achieved with 1α,25-(OH)2D2. Analysis of blood samples collected at regular intervals from the participating patients reveal that the levels of circulating 1α,24-(OH)2D2 increase proportionately with the dosage administered, rising to maximum levels well above 100 pg/mL at the highest dosages, and that circulating levels of 1α,25-(OH)2D2 are suppressed, often to undetectable levels. Serum and urine calcium are elevated in a dose responsive manner. Patients treated with the MTD of 1α,24-(OH)2D2 for at least six months report that bone pain associated with metastatic disease is significantly diminished.
  • During the second phase, patients are treated with 1α,24-(OH)2D2 for 24 months at 0.5 and 1.0 times the MTD. After one and two years of treatment, CAT scans, X-rays and bone scans used for evaluating the progression of metastatic disease show stable disease or partial remission in many patients treated at the lower dosage, and stable disease and partial or complete remission in many patients treated at the higher dosage.
  • Example 8 1α-(OH)D2
  • The study of Example 7 is repeated for the active vitamin D compound, 1α-(OH)D2 (formulated with 2.5% w/w benzyl alcohol, 0.5%-2.5% w/w TWEEN™-20, and 20 ppm BHT). The results of the phase one study indicate that patients treated with the MTD of 1α-(OH)D2 for at least six months report that bone pain associated with metastatic disease is significantly diminished. The results of the phase two study indicate that after two years, CAT scans, X-rays and bone scans used for evaluating the progression of metastatic disease show stable disease or partial remission in many patients treated at the lower dosage, and stable disease and partial or complete remission in many patients treated at the higher dosage. In summary, the present invention provides an improved formulation for lipophilic drug agents that are only slightly soluble in an aqueous vehicle. The formulation in addition to the lipophilic drug agent includes a lipophilic antioxidant, a non-ionic solubilizer or surfactant, and optionally, an agent which is an organic solvent/preservative.
  • All patents, publications and references cited herein are hereby fully incorporated by reference. In the case of conflict between the present disclosure and the incorporated patents, publications and references, the present disclosure should control.
  • While the present invention has now been described and exemplified with some specificity, those skilled in the art will appreciate the various modifications, including variations, additions, and omissions that may be made in what has been described. Accordingly, it is intended that these modifications also be encompassed by the present invention and that the scope of the present invention be limited solely by the broadest interpretation that lawfully can be accorded the appended claims.
