Dinoprostone vaginal insert is a thin, flat, polymeric slab which is rectangular
in shape with rounded corners contained within the pouch of an off-white knitted
polyester retrieval system. Each slab is buff colored, semitransparent and contains
10 mg of dinoprostone in a hydrogel insert. An integral part of the knitted
polyester retrieval system is a long tape designed to aid retrieval at the end
of the dosing interval or earlier if clinically indicated. The finished product
is a controlled release formulation which has been found to release dinoprostone
in vivo at a rate of approximately 0.3 mg/hr.
The chemical name for dinoprostone (commonly known as prostaglandin E2
or PGE2) is 11α, 15S-dihydroxy-9-oxo-prosta-5Z,13E-dien-1-oic
acid and the structural formula is represented below:








The molecular formula is C20H32O5 and its
molecular weight is 352.5. Dinoprostone occurs as a white to off-white crystalline
powder. It has a melting point within the range of 65° to 69°C. Dinoprostone
is soluble in ethanol and in 25% ethanol in water. Each insert contains 10 mg
of dinoprostone in 241 mg of a cross-linked polyethylene oxide/urethane polymer
which is a semi-opaque, beige colored, flat rectangular slab measuring 29 mm
by 9.5 mm and 0.8 mm in thickness. The insert and its retrieval system, made
of polyester yarn, are non-toxic and when placed in a moist environment, absorb
water, swell, and release dinoprostone.
