Abstract

A pharmaceutical formulation comprising a growth hormone pre-treated with zinc and optionally lysine or calcium ions shows a very high stability against deamidation, oxidation and cleavage of peptide bonds. The stability of the product allows for the storing and shipment thereof in a lyophilized state or in the form of a dissolved or re-dissolved formulation at ambient temperature.

Description

TITLE

A STABILIZED PHARMACEUΗCAL FORMULATION COMPRISING A GROWTH HORMONE PRE-TREATEDWITHZINC ANDOPTIONALLYLYSINEORCALCIUMIONS

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a stabilized pharmaceutical formulation comprising growth hormone, to a method of making such formulation, to the use of zinc for stabilizing a for- mulation of growth hormone, and to a method for treating a disorder affectable by growth hormone.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The growth hormones from man and from the common domestic animals are proteins of approximately 191 amino acids, syn¬ thesized and secreted from the anterior lope of the pitui¬ tary gland. Human growth hormone consists of 191 amino acids.

Growth hormone is a key hormone involved in the regulation of not only somatic growth, but also in the regulation of metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. The major effect of growth hormone is to promote growth.

The organ systems affected by growth hormone include the skeleton, connective tissue, muscles, and viscera such as liver, intestine, and kidneys.

Until the development of the recombinant technology and the cloning of the growth hormone gene now giving rise to production of e.g. human growth hormone (hGH) and Met-hGH in industrial scale, human growth hormone could only be obtained by extraction from the pituitary glands of human cadavers. The very limited supplies of growth hormone restricted the use thereof to longitudinal growth promotion in childhood and puberty for treatment of dwarfism, even though it has been proposed for inter alia treatment of short stature (due to growth hormone deficiency, normal short stature and Turner syndrome) , growth hormone deficiency in adults, infertility, treatment of burns, wound healing, dystrophy, bone knitting, osteoporosis, diffuse ga¬ stric bleeding, and pseudoarthrosis.

Furthermore, growth hormone has been proposed for increasing the rate of growth of domestic animals or for decreasing the proportion of fat in animals to be slaughtered for human consumption.

Pharmaceutical formulations of growth hormone tend to be un¬ stable. Degradation products such as deamidated or sulfoxy- dated products and dimer or polymer forms are generated - especially in solutions of growth hormone.

The predominant degradation reactions of hGH are 1) deamida¬ tion by direct hydrolysis or via a cyclic succinimide intermediate to form various amounts of L-asp-hGH, L-iso- asp-hGH, D-asp-hGH, and D-iso-asp-hGH (ref 1-3), and 2) oxidation of the methionine residues in positions 14 and 125 (ref 4-9) . The major degradation product of hGH in lyophilized state as well as in solution is deamidated hGH.

Deamidation especially takes place at the Asn in position 149 and to a minor extent in position 152.

hGH is also rather easily oxidized in positions 14 and 125.

The oxidation of hGH in solution forming sulfoxides is nor¬ mally due to the oxygen dissolved in the formulation. The solubility of oxygen in distilled water is about 200 μM (9) . As the concentration of hGH in a formulation comprising 4 IU/ml is 1.3 mg/ml corresponding to 60nM hGH, oxygen will, at normal storing conditions, be present in an excess of about 3000 times the stoichiometric amount for oxidation of hGH. It is not feasible to try to solve the problem by degassing of buffers before tapping and packing the formulations.

At present, it is not believed that these deamidated forms and oxidized forms of hGH should have toxic or altered biological activity or receptor binding properties, but there is indication to the effect that the conformation stability of the sulfoxides is reduced as compared to native hGH.

For the development of a stable, dissolved formulation com¬ prising hGH it is of importance to know the rate of deamida¬ tion and formation of sulfoxides as well as means to control the reactions.

The kinetics of degradation depend on temperature, pH and various additives or adjuvants in the hGH formulation.

Due to the instability, growth hormone is, at present, lyophilized and stored in the lyophilized form at 4°C until it is reconstituted for use in order to minimize the degradation.

The lyophilized pharmaceutical formulations comprising hGH are, at present, reconstituted by the patient and then stored as a solution during the use for a period of up to 14 days at 4°C, during which some degradation will take place.

Furthermore, the process of reconstitution of the lyophilized growth hormone tends to provide difficulties for the patient.

Thus, it is at present preferred to reconstitute the growth hormone as late as possible before use and to store and ship the formulation in a lyophilized state. The chain from the manufacturer to the pharmacy is apt for handling the formulations at a controlled low temperature of e.g. 4°C which allows for a long shelf life of up to two years.

However, the extended use of pen systems for self-medication and the expanded field of use calls for a formulation which is stable for a sufficient long time with the end user under conditions where "sufficient" cooling is not always avai¬ lable.

Preferably, a formulation should be stable with the end user in a lyophilized state for about one month and additionally for one month in a reconstituted state in a pen device for the intended period of use of a cartridge.

Thus, there is a need for more stable formulations of growth hormone being stable in a lyophilized state at a relative high temperature for a period and additionally for a period of use at a relatively high temperature in solution. Such stabilization is of very great importance when moving the administration of the growth hormone from clinics to the ho¬ mes of the individuals to be treated where optimal storage may not be available as indicated above.

Furthermore, the shift in pattern of administration of growth hormone to the use of pen devices calls for a stable dissolved formulation comprising growth hormone in order to facilitate the handling to be- performed by the patient. A stable dissolved formulation comprising growth hormone may be produced ready to use in the form of cartridges fitting into the pen device used by the patient who may then avoid the reconstitution of the formulation and, hence, will not have to be in the possession of a lyophilized formulation, a suitable vehicle for reconstitution as well as the necessary skill and sterile equipment for sterile reconstitution of the formulation. For safety reasons it will also be desirable to avoid the reconstitution of a lyophilized formulation just before the use of the formulation.

Furthermore, it would also be an advantage to avoid the lyo¬ philization step in the production of growth hormone formulations. Lyophilization is a time consuming and costly process and is also often a "bottleneck" in the production due to the limited capacity of the freeze drier.

Thus, there is a need to reduce the rate of the degradation processes in order to allow for dissolved hGH formulations being stable during shelf life and during the period of use of up to one month.

Prior attempts to stabilize hGH has not fully succeeded in preventing the formation of dimer. The problems associated with dimer formation is e.g noted in Becker, G. ., Biotech- nology and Applied Biochemistry 9, 478 (1987) .

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

It has now surprisingly been found that a formulation of hu¬ man growth hormone with zinc and optionally lysine or cal¬ cium ions before preparation of the final formulation shows a very high stability against deamidation in aqueous solution and is furthermore readily dissolvable in aqueous solvents when lyophilized. The stability of the product allows for the storing and shipment thereof in a lyophilized state or in the form of a dissolved or re-dissolved formula¬ tion.

The pharmaceutical formulations of the invention may be formulated for administration in any suitable way, e.g. by parenteral or oral administration or administration to a mucosal membrane, e.g. nasal administration. The pharmaceutical formulation may be presented in the form of a dose comprised in a vial or cartridge or any other suitable container such as a prefilled syringe or a pen device. Thus, the formulation of the invention may be in the form of a lyophilized powder to be reconstituted later using conven¬ tional vehicles such as distilled water or water for injec- tion or in the form of a solution comprising growth hormone. Such vehicles may comprise conventional preservatives such as phenol, m-cresol and benzyl alcohol.

A preferred embodiment of the invention is in the form of a pharmaceutical formulation of human growth hormone pre¬ treated with zinc and optionally lysine or calcium ions and further comprising a carrier in the form of a buffered ague¬ ous solution of growth hormone. Such formulation is in a ready-to-use form and may be stored and shipped as an aque- ous solution without any considerable degradation.

A buffer to be used in a solution of pre-treated growth hor¬ mone may e.g. be histidine, citrate, tartrate or phosphate buffer. Preferably, the buffer is histidine buffer.

The pre-treatment solution is preferably adjusted to a value in the interval from about 2 to about 9, more preferred to pH from 6 to 8, especially to about 7-7.3.

For stability reasons the pH in the final formulation of pre-treated growth hormone is preferably adjusted to a value of about 2 to about 9, more preferred to a value of about 6 to about 8, especially to a value of about 6.0 to about 6.8.

In order to obtain the stabilizing effect of zinc and optionally lysine or calcium ions zinc is preferably added in an amount of up to 2mM, preferably from about 1 to about 4 moles Zn per mol of growth hormone, preferably about 1 to 2 moles Zn per mole growth hormone, most preferred about 1 mol Zn per mol growth hormone. Zinc is preferably added in the form of a physiologically acceptable soluble salt such as the chloride.

Calcium ions when present are preferably added in the form of a physiologically acceptable soluble salt such as the chloride.

The pharmaceutical formulation of the invention may further¬ more comprise salts or sugar alcohols for adjusting the tonicity and optionally an excipient in order to facilitate the processing thereof, e.g. lyophilization and the rapid and complete dissolution of a lyophilized formulation when reconstituting the formulation before use.

An excipient may be selected from disaccharides such as lac¬ tose, trehalose, and sucrose, sugar alcohols such as sorbitol or mannitol, polysaccharides such as the polymers commercialized as Dextran® products such as Dextran® 40,

Dextran® 70 or Dextran® 75, and Ficoll® and polyvalent alcohols such as polyethylene glycol or polyvinyl alcohol or a combination of two or more of these.

In a further aspect the invention relates to a method of preparing a pharmaceutical formulation comprising a growth hormone pre-treated with zinc and optionally lysine or calcium ions wherein the growth hormone is dissolved in a solution comprising zinc and optionally lysine or calcium ions by dissolving zinc chloride in deionized water optio¬ nally containing lysine or calcium ions, letting the solution stand for a while, adding the growth hormone and optionally adjusting the pH to from about 2 to about 9.

The pH may be adjusted by adding an acid which has no adverse effect on the growth hormone, preferably a physiologically acceptable acid e.g. a mineral acid such as hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid or nitric acid or an organic acid such as acetic acid. In an embodiment of the method of the invention, is added optionally salts and an excipient, whereafter the solution is filled into a container and lyophilized.

Still another aspect of the invention relates to the use of zinc and optionally lysine or calcium ions for pre-treatment of growth hormone for the formulation of a stabilized formu¬ lation of growth hormone.

In yet another aspect the invention relates to a method for treating a disorder affectable by growth hormone comprising administering a formulation which comprises a growth hormone pre-treated with zinc and optionally lysine or calcium ions.

In the present context "growth hormone" may be growth hormone from any origin such as avian, bovine, equine, human, ovine, porcine, salmon, trout or tuna growth hormone, preferably bovine, human or porcine growth hormone, human growth hormone being most preferred. The growth hormone used in accordance with the invention may be native growth hormone isolated from a natural source, e.g. by extracting pituitary glands in a conventional manner, or a growth hormone produced by recombinant techniques, e.g as described in E.B. Jensen and S. Carlsen in Biotech and Bioeng. 3_6, 1- 11 (1990) . The "growth hormone" may also be a truncated form of growth hormone wherein one or more amino acid residues has (have) been deleted; an analogue thereof wherein one or more amino acid residues in the native molecule has (have) been substituted by another amino acid residue, preferably a natural amino acid residue, as long as the substitution does not have any adverse effect such as antigenicity or reduced action; or a derivative thereof, e.g having an N- or C- terminal extension such as Met-hGH. The preferred growth hormone is hGH. The term "dose" of growth hormone refers to that amount that provides therapeutic effect in an administration regimen. The formulations hereof are prepared containing amounts of hGH at least about 0.1 mg/ml, preferably upwards of about 10 mg/ml, preferably from about 1 mg/ml to about 40 mg/ml, more preferably from about 1 mg/ml to about 25 mg/ml, e.g. from 1 mg/ml to about 5 mg/ml, calculated on the ready-to-use formulation. For use of these compositions in administration to human beings suffering from hypopituitary dwarfism, for example, these formulations contain from about 0.1 mg/ml to about 10 mg/ml, corresponding to the currently contemplated dosage regimen for the intended treatment. The concentration range is not critical to the invention and may be varied by the physician supervising the administration.

Lysine to be used in accordance with the present invention is preferably the naturally occurring alpha amino acid. The lysine may be 1 or d lysine or a mixture thereof.

In the present context "high stability" is obtained when the formulation is more stable than the conventional formulation comprising phosphate buffer and preferably as stable as a corresponding formulation comprising histidine as stabilizer in which the deamidation of hGH is reduced by approximately 20% as compared with phosphate buffer as disclosed in WO 93/12812.

The solvent used in the method of the invention may be water, alcohols such as ethyl, n-propyl or isopropyl, butyl alcohol or mixtures thereof. The solvent may comprise a preservative such as phenol, m-cresol or benzyl alcohol. The term "pre-treated" is used in the present context in connection with growth hormone formulations to designate a growth hormone which is treated with zinc and optionally lysine or calcium ions before the addition of or to the further components for preparation of a growth hormone for¬ mulation.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The invention is explained more in detail in the below Exam¬ ples which illustrate the invention. They are not to be con¬ sidered as limiting the scope of the invention being defined by the appended claims.

EXPERIMENTAL PART

EXAMPLE

Reduction of the deamidation.

The rate of deamidation after different pre-treatments was examined at 37°C for hGH formulations containing 4 mg/ml hGH, 0.18 mM ZnCl2, 3 mM histidine, 1.5% benzyl alcohol, pH 6.8 as compared to histidine and phosphate buffer at pH 6.8.

The hGH formulations were prepared by dissolving 24 mg hGH in 2.5 ml of a) 2 mM CaC122 + 0.36 mM ZnCl2, pH 7-7.3, b) 2 M lysine + 0.36 mM ZnCl2, pH 7-7.3 or c) 0.36 mM ZnCl2, pH 7-7.3.

After storage 1 h at 4°C (to allow Zn++ to complex with hGH) the preparations a)-c) were reformulated using a PD10 desalting column (Pharmacia) into 3 ml 6 mM histidine, 0.36 mM ZnCl2, 8 mg/ml hGH. Thereafter 3 ml 3% benzyl alcohol were added resulting in a final formulation of 4 mg/ml hGH, 3 mM histidine, 0.18 mM ZnCl2, 1.5% benzyl alcohol, (pH adjusted to 6.8 adding HCl/NaOH) .

As reference formulations were used a) 4mg/ml hGH, 3 mM histidine, 0.18 mM ZnCl2 1.5% benzyl alcohol, pH 6.8; b) 4mg/ml hGH, 3 mM histidine, 1.5% benzyl alcohol, pH 6.8; and c) 4 mg/ml hGH, 3 mM Na2HP04, 1.5% benzyl alcohol, pH 6.8. The reference formulations were not pre-treated with Zn++.

The hGH formulations stated in the below table were stored at 37°C for 7 days, and analyzed for the content of deamidated hGH by IE-HPLC. The results appear from the below table

#Desamido content corrected by 1% per 0.1 pH unit deviation from 6.8.

From the above table it appears that the deamidation rate of hGH is reduced to 84% relative to the histidine (68% relative to the phosphate formulation) when the hGH solution is treated with Zn++ in the presence of Ca++ or lysine prior to resalting into the final histidine formulation. REFERENCES
