pamidronate disodium injection Description

DESCRIPTION

Pamidronate disodium is a bisphosphonate available in 30 mg, 60 mg, or 90 mg vials for intravenous administration. The pamidronate disodium obtained by combining pamidronic acid and sodium hydroxide is provided in a sterile, ready to use solution for injection. Each mL of the 30 mg vial contains: 3 mg Pamidronate Disodium; 47 mg Mannitol, USP; Water for Injection, USP, q.s.; Phosphoric Acid and/or Sodium Hydroxide, as necessary to adjust pH. Each mL of the 60 mg vial contains: 6 mg Pamidronate Disodium; 40 mg Mannitol, USP; Water for Injection, USP, q.s.; Phosphoric Acid and/or Sodium Hydroxide, as necessary to adjust pH. Each mL of the 90 mg vial contains: 9 mg Pamidronate Disodium; 37.5 mg Mannitol, USP; Water for Injection, USP, q.s.; Phosphoric Acid and/or Sodium Hydroxide, as necessary to adjust pH. The pH of a 1% solution of pamidronate disodium in distilled water is approximately 8.3. Pamidronate, a member of the group of chemical compounds known as bisphosphonates, is an analog of pyrophosphate. Pamidronate disodium is designated chemically as phosphonic acid (3-amino-1-hydroxypropylidene) bis-, disodium salt, and its structural formula is:

structural formula pamidronate disodium

Pamidronate disodium is soluble in water and in 2N sodium hydroxide, sparingly soluble in 0.1N hydrochloric acid and in 0.1N acetic acid, and practically insoluble in organic solvents. Its molecular formula is C3H9NO7P2Na2 and its molecular weight is 279.1 (calculated as the anhydrous form).

Inactive Ingredients. Mannitol, USP, Phosphoric Acid and/or Sodium Hydroxide, as necessary (for adjustment to pH range of 6.0 - 7.0) and Water for Injection, USP.
