  • Taste-masked pharmaceutical compositions
    Patent 10,130,580
    Issued: November 20, 2018

    There is provided a method for preparing an orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) composition comprising microparticles of one or more taste-masked active pharmaceutical ingredient(s), rapidly-dispersing microgranules, and other optional, pharmaceutically acceptable excipients wherein the ODT disintegrates on contact with saliva in the buccal cavity in about 60 seconds forming a smooth, easy-to-swallow suspension. Furthermore, the microparticles (crystals, granules, beads or pellets containing the active) applied with a taste-masking membrane comprising a combination of water-insoluble and gastrosoluble polymers release not less than about 60% of the dose is in the stomach in about 30 minutes, thus maximizing the probability of achieving bioequivalence to the reference IR product having rapid onset of action (short Tmax). A process for preparing such compositions for oral administration using conventional fluid-bed equipment and rotary tablet press is also disclosed.

RLD A Reference Listed Drug (RLD) is an approved drug product to which new generic versions are compared to show that they are bioequivalent. A drug company seeking approval to market a generic equivalent must refer to the Reference Listed Drug in its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA). By designating a single reference listed drug as the standard to which all generic versions must be shown to be bioequivalent, FDA hopes to avoid possible significant variations among generic drugs and their brand name counterpart.
