cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) inhibitor
FDA Approves Tybost (cobicistat) for use in the treatment of HIV-1 Infection
September 24, 2014 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Tybost (cobicistat), a CYP3A inhibitor used in combination with atazanavir or darunavir for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection
Cobicistat is a pharmacokinetic enhancer that works by inhibiting the enzyme (CYP3A) that metabolizes atazanavir and darunavir. It increases the systemic exposure of these drugs and prolongs their effect. Cobicistat is also one of the ingredients in the combination HIV drug Stribild, which was approved by the FDA in August, 2012.
Tybost comes in 150 mg tablets and is administered once daily in combination with the protease inhibitors atazanavir (Reyataz), or darunavir (Prezista).
Because Tybost inhibits CYP3A, other medications metabolized by CYP3A may result in increased plasma concentrations and potentially severe side effects, which may be life-threatening or even fatal. Extra care should be exercised by healthcare professionals to ensure than other medications are reviewed and their concentrations monitored, especially when initiating new medicines or changing doses.
The approval of Tybost was based on the following clinical trials:
•The data to support the use of atazanavir and Tybost were from a phase 2 and 3 trial in treatment-naïve adults comparing atazanavir/cobicistat 300/150 mg and atazanavir/ritonavir 300/100 mg once daily each in combination with Truvada. The atazanavir/cobicistat based regimen was non-inferior to the atazanavir/ritonavir based regimen.
•The data to support the use of cobicistat with darunavir is from a multiple dose trial in healthy subjects comparing the relative bioavailability of darunavir/cobicistat 800/150 mg to darunavir/ritonavir 800/100 mg.
The most common adverse drug reactions observed with Tybost (in combination with atazanavir) in clinical trials were jaundice, ocular icterus, and nausea.
Tybost is a product of Gilead Sciences, Foster City, CA.
Cobicistat (formerly GS-9350) is a licensed drug for use in the treatment of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Like ritonavir (Norvir), cobicistat is of interest not for its anti-HIV properties, but rather its ability to inhibit liver enzymes that metabolize other medications used to treat HIV, notablyelvitegravir, an HIV integrase inhibitor currently under investigation itself. By combining cobicistat with elvitegravir, higher concentrations of elvitgravir are achieved in the body with lower dosing, theoretically enhancing elvitgravir’s viral suppression while diminishing its adverse side-effects. In contrast with ritonavir, the only currently approved booster, cobicistat has no anti-HIV activity of its own.
Cobicistat, a cytochrome P450 CYP3A4 inhibitor, was approved in the E.U. in 2013 as a pharmacokinetic enhancer of the HIV-1 protease inhibitors atazanavir and darunavir in adults. First launch took place in 2014 in United Kingdom. In 2012, Gilead filed a New Drug Application in the U.S. for the same indication. In April 2013, the FDA issued a Complete Response Letter from the FDA. In 2014 the FDA accepted Gilead’s resubmission.
Cobicistat is a component of the four-drug, fixed-dose combination HIV treatmentelvitegravir/cobicistat/emtricitabine/tenofovir (known as the “Quad Pill” or Stribild). The Quad Pill/Stribild was approved by the FDA in August 2012 for use in the United States and is owned by Gilead Sciences.
Cobicistat is a potent inhibitor of cytochrome P450 3A enzymes, including the importantCYP3A4 subtype. It also inhibits intestinal transport proteins, increasing the overall absorption of several HIV medications, including atazanavir, darunavir and tenofovir alafenamide fumarate.
The drug candidate acts as a pharmaco-enhancer to boost exposure of HIV protease inhibitors. In 2011, cobicistat was licensed to Japan Tobacco by Gilead for development and commercialization in Japan as a stand-alone product for the treatment of HIV infection. In 2012, orphan drug designation was assigned in Japan for the pharmacokinetic enhancement of anti-HIV agent.
Oxidative metabolism by cytochrome P450 enzymes is one of the primary mechanisms of drug metabolism.. It can be difficult to maintain therapeutically effective blood plasma levels of drugs which are rapidly metabolized by cytochrome P450 enzymes. Accordingly, the blood plasma levels of drugs which are susceptible to cytochrome P450 enzyme degradation can be maintained or enhanced by co-administration of cytochrome P450 inhibitors, thereby improving the pharmacokinetics of the drug.
While certain drugs are known to inhibit cytochrome P450 enzymes, more and/or improved inhibitors for cytochrome P450 monooxygenase are desirable. Particularly, it would be desirable to have cytochrome P450 monooxygenase inhibitors which do not have appreciable biological activity other than cytochrome P450 inhibition. Such inhibitors can be useful for minimizing undesirable biological activity, e.g., side effects. In addition, it would be desirable to have P450 monooxygenase inhibitors that lack significant or have a reduced level of protease inhibitor activity. Such inhibitors could be useful for enhancing the effectiveness of antiretroviral drugs, while minimizing the possibility of eliciting viral resistance, especially against protease inhibitors.
Cobicistat (GS-9350): A potent and selective inhibitor of human CYP3A as a novel pharmacoenhancer
ACS Med Chem Lett 2010, 1(5): 209
Cobicistat (3, GS-9350) is a newly discovered, potent, and selective inhibitor of human cytochrome P450 3A (CYP3A) enzymes. In contrast to ritonavir, 3 is devoid of anti-HIV activity and is thus more suitable for use in boosting anti-HIV drugs without risking selection of potential drug-resistant HIV variants. Compound 3 shows reduced liability for drug interactions and may have potential improvements in tolerability over ritonavir. In addition, 3 has high aqueous solubility and can be readily coformulated with other agents.
oxidative metabolism by cytochrome P450 enzymes is one of the main mechanisms of drug metabolism, generally by administration of cytochrome P450 inhibitors to maintain or increase the degradation of cytochrome P450 enzymes are sensitive to the drug plasma levels, in order to improve the pharmacokinetics of drugs dynamics, can be used to enhance the effectiveness of anti-retroviral drugs. For example W02008010921 discloses compounds of formula I as a cytochrome P450 monooxygenase specific compounds (Cobicistat):
W02008010921 discloses the synthesis of compounds of formula I with a variety of, as one of the methods of the following routes
The reagents used in the method is expensive, and more difficult to remove by-products, long reaction time, high cost, is not conducive to industrial
W02010115000 on these routes has been improved:
The first step in the route used for the ring-opening reaction reagent trimethylsilyl iodide, trimethylsilyl iodide expensive. W02010115000 reports this step and the subsequent ring-opening reaction of morpholine substitution reaction yield of two steps is not high, only 71%, so that only iodotrimethylsilane a high cost of raw material is not suitable for industrial production.
