|20130306070||AIRFLOW ADAPTOR FOR A BREATH-ACTUATED DRY POWDER INHALER - An airflow adaptor for a breath-actuated dry powder inhaler. The airflow adaptor includes a conduit having a proximal end and a distal end, wherein the proximal end allows fluid communication from a deagglomerator outlet port to the distal end of the conduit, and wherein the airflow adaptor further includes provisions for allowing air to flow from a proximal end of the adaptor to a distal end of the adaptor independently of the airflow in the conduit when a breath induced low pressure is applied to the distal end of the airflow adaptor.||11-21-2013|
|20110108030||AIRFLOW ADAPTOR FOR A BREATH-ACTUATED DRY POWDER INHALER - An airflow adaptor for a breath-actuated dry powder inhaler. The airflow adaptor includes a conduit having a proximal end and a distal end, wherein the proximal end allows fluid communication from a deagglomerator outlet port to the distal end of the conduit, and wherein the airflow adaptor further includes provisions for allowing air to flow from a proximal end of the adaptor to a distal end of the adaptor independently of the airflow in the conduit when a breath induced low pressure is applied to the distal end of the airflow adaptor.||05-12-2011|
|20100326437||INHALABLE MEDICAMENT - An inhalable medicament is provided, in particular a new solid-state form of tiotropium bromide. The medicament can be in the form of solid amorphous particles containing an intimate admixture of tiotropium bromide together with a pharmaceutically acceptable co-solid having a glass transition temperature of at least −50° C., such as a sugar and/or sugar alcohol.||12-30-2010|
|20100236550||DRY-POWDER MEDICAMENT - An inhalable dry powder medicament is provided. The medicament, which provides improved fine particle fraction, may be prepared by (i) fractionating a particulate active ingredient based on aerodynamic particle size, (ii) recovering at least one fraction of the particulate active ingredient and (iii) combining the recovered fraction with a carrier to provide the inhalable dry powder medicament.||09-23-2010|
|20100147293||AEROSOL ACTUATOR - A metered dose aerosol actuator, for use in association with a pressurized medicament container provided with a dispensing metering valve having a valve stem, including a housing adapted to receive the container, a stem block extending upwards from the base of the housing and adapted to engage the valve stem by means of a cavity provided in the stem block, the stem block being provided with a spray orifice adapted to be in flow connection with the valve stem and the cavity, a sump extending downwards from the cavity relative to the spray orifice, wherein the sump has a smooth, rounded interior surface.||06-17-2010|
|20090246281||Soft steroid compositions for use in dry powder inhalers - A medicament and a method of producing a medicament are disclosed. The medicament contains a soft steroid and is suitable for administration via a dry powder inhaler.||10-01-2009|
|20090246148||Medicinal aerosols and methods of delivery thereof - The replacement of chlorofluorohydrocarbon propellants in medical aerosols is of the utmost importance to the pharmaceutical industry. A number of formulations have been investigated.||10-01-2009|
|20090205657||Pre-metered dose magazine for dry powder inhaler - A dry powder inhaler including a housing having a mouthpiece and a delivery passageway connected to the mouthpiece, a magazine positioned within the housing and including a plurality of reservoirs for holding doses of dry powder, and wherein the magazine is movable within the housing so that the reservoirs are sequentially positioned within the delivery passageway of the housing upon movement of the magazine, a cover connected to the housing and movable to open and close the mouthpiece of the housing, and a rake connected to the cover, extending into the housing and engageable with the magazine so that, upon the cover being moved to open the mouthpiece, the rake moves the magazine and causes one of the reservoirs of the magazine to be positioned within the delivery passageway.||08-20-2009|
|20090178678||RESERVOIR PRESSURE SYSTEM FOR MEDICAMENT INHALER - An inhaler includes an accurate and consistent mechanical dose metering system that dispenses dry powdered medicament in discrete amounts or doses for patient inhalation, a pressure relief system that manages pressure within a medicament reservoir of the inhaler to ensure consistently dispensed doses, and a dose counting system indicating the number of doses dispensed by or remaining in the inhaler.||07-16-2009|
|20080314383||Dry Powder Inhalation Apparatus - The invention relates to dry powder inhalation apparatus usually operable by breath of a user which provides for controlled and smooth transfer of medicament during multiple actuations by a user. A mechanism of the apparatus for achieving this controlled and smooth transfer includes a device (||12-25-2008|
