Simulation study stability Oxytocics Michiel de Goeje
- 2 - Study design Simulation study of several products of several brands at several storage conditions Ergometrine injection Methylergometrine injection Oxytocine injection
- 3 - Study design Different brands 3 or 4 brands for each product 2 batches of each brand Different temperatures 2-8°C, RT(21°), 25°, 30°, 40°, 50°C Different times 0; 0.5; 1; 2; 3; 6; 12; 24 months
- 5 - Results and conclusion Both Ergometrine as well as Methylergometrine are very sensitive to light.
- 6 - Influence of light

Colour changes Both Ergometrine and Methylergometrine show discolouration if degradation is more then 10%. Slight colour changes are not easy detectable in the field Coloured injection should not be used !
The stability of ergometrine and methylergometrine is sensitive to changes in manufacturing proces Filling under nitrogen needed Oxytocin is more predictable in behaviour Design and manufacturing conditions

Stability current suppliers IDA Oxytocin Labeled storage temperature 2-8°C (cool). The shelflife at this temperature is 3 years. Advice for shelflife IDA products at higher temperature at 25°C the shelflife is reduced to 1 years. at 30°C the shelflife is reduced to 6 months. at 40°C transport maximum 1 week.
Stability current suppliers IDA Methylergometrine Labeled storage temperature 2-8°C or 25° depending on manufacturer The shelflife at this temperature is 2 years. Advice for shelflife IDA products at higher temperature (only for manufacturer Gland) at 25°C the shelflife is 2 years at 30°C the shelflife is reduced to 1 year at 40°C transport maximum 4 weeks
Stability current suppliers IDA ergometrine Labeled storage temperature 2-8°C The shelflife at this temperature is 2 years. Advice for shelflife IDA products at higher temperature at 25°C the shelflife is reduced to 6 months at 40°C transport maximum 2 weeks
Pharmacopoeial requirements on sensitivity to light BP2005USP26 Ergometrine protect from light in a light resistant container Methyl- ergmetrine Not included in a light resistant container Oxytocin No require- ments
On storage temperature Pharmacopoeial requirements BP2005USP26 Ergometrine2° to 8 °C8-15 ºC Methyl- ergometrineNot includedNo requirements OxytocinNo requirements2° to 8 °C
Quality assurance Product should be procured through a reliable source. BP assay is not specific for degradation products and therefore release and stability studies should be based on analysis by validated HPLC methods
Protect from light Store refridgerated. Manufacturer should be able to guarantee 2 years shelflife at refridgerated conditions. Storage outside refridgeration (up to 30°C) may limit the shelflife to less then half year but is dependent on manufacturer. Do not use coloured products. Recommendation on storage ergometrine
Protect from light Store refridgerated, although some brand may guarantee it up to 25°C Manufacturer should be able to guarantee 2-3 years shelflife at refridgerated conditions. Storage outside refridgeration may limit the shelflife to a year but is dependent on manufacturer. Do not use coloured products. Recommendation on storage methyl ergometrine
Recommended to store refridgerated. It is expected to remain of sufficient quality if stored below 21°C up to 2 years. When stored up to 30°C a loss of 15% in one year is expected. Thus shelflife is then limited to 6 months only. Recommendation on storage Oxytocin
Simulation study stability Oxytocics Stability data simulation study are based on study performed in collaboration with WHO WHO/DAP/93.6 Michiel de Goeje Pharmacist IDA Foundation
