Brivanib alaninate (INN/USAN) also known as BMS-582664 is an investigational, anti-tumorigenic drug for oral administration. The drug is being developed by Bristol-Myers Squibb for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma or HCC (also called malignant hepatoma), the most common type of liver cancer. Hepatocellular carcinoma [1] is a primary cancer of the liver and is more common in men than in women. The disease occurs mostly in people who have scarring of the liver (cirrhosis) or after infection with hepatitis B or hepatitis C. Symptoms include pain and swelling in the abdomen, weight loss, weakness, loss of appetite and nausea. Hepatocellular carcinoma is a severe and life-threatening disease that is associated with poor overall survival. [2] While the choice of treatment depends mainly on how advanced the disease is, the only proven therapies to cure the cancer is surgery to remove the tumor and liver transplantation, but these therapies can only be carried out in very few patients. Other treatments includechemotherapy and immunotherapy. Radiofrequency ablation and ethanol injection are also used to remove small tumors.[3]

As a result of poor liver function, metastases, or both, only 10% to 20% of patients undergo surgery. In patients having surgery, the 5-year survival rate is only 25% to 50%. Several chemotherapeutic agents have been evaluated for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. Doxorubicin (trade name Adriamycin; also known as hydroxydaunorubicin), the most widely used agent in HCC, has shown a 4% to 10.5% response rate in patients with HCC.

Studies have shown that the overall response (OR) rate, but not overall survival (OS), doubles when doxorubicin was given in combination with cisplatin, IFN, and 5-fluorouracil. The multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor sorafenib (trade name Nexavar), which inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR), platelet-derived growth factor receptor, raf, c-kit, and flt-3, has been shown to inhibit HCC-induced proliferation and angiogenesis.

Sorafenib has also been shown to provide a significant improvement in OS in patients with HCC. Based on these results, researchers concluded that this class of agents may be effective in the treatment of HCC. Brivanib alaninate also inhibits VEGFR and fibroblast growth factorreceptors (FGFR), which is known to play a major role in the etiopathogenesis of HCC. To date, brivanib alaninate has been investigated in 29 studies, including more than 4,000 patients around the world.

Abstract Image

This manuscript describes the control strategy for the commercial process to manufacture brivanib alaninate. The active pharmaceutical ingredient is a prodrug which is susceptible to hydrolysis. In addition to controlling hydrolysis, a robust strategy was required in order to control input and process-related impurities. Three significant aspects of control include understanding of the reaction parameters in order to minimize the regioisomer during the alkylation with (R)-propylene oxide, development of a design space through statistical models to control impurity formation, and the use of in situ FT-IR to monitor the hydrogenolysis of the Cbz protecting group.

Ongoing clinical development program

To further investigate the benefits of brivanib in patients with advanced HCC, a broad-spectrum, global, phase III clinical development plan called the Brivanib studies in HCC patients at RISK (BRISK), has been initiated. Clinical benefits seen with brivanib in the first-line setting, and following the failure of sorafenib therapy, highlight the potential to improve the clinical course of patients with advanced HCC. Brivanib may provide a novel therapeutic option to a growing number of patients for whom no other treatment choice exists.

Regulatory status

On 27 October 2011, orphan designation (EU/3/11/918) was granted by the European Commission to Bristol-Myers Squibb for brivanib alaninate for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma.[11] Designated orphan medicinal products are products that are still under investigation and are considered for orphan designation on the basis of potential activity. An orphan designation is not a marketing authorization. As a consequence, demonstration of quality, safety and efficacy is necessary before a product can be granted a marketing authorization. At the time of the orphan designation, several medicines were authorized in the EU for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma.

Submission and application

At the time of submission of the application for orphan designation, clinical trials with brivanib alaninate in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma were ongoing. As part of the submission process, Bristol-Myers Squibb has provided sufficient information to show that brivanib alaninate might be of significant benefit for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma because it could provide an alternative for patients who cannot take or for whom existing treatments do not work. Early studies show that it might improve the treatment of patients with this condition, particularly if used when existing treatment had failed. However, this assumption needs to be confirmed at the time of EU marketing authorization, in order to maintain the orphan status.

Figure US07932383-20110426-C00001

and is referred to herein as “Compound I”. Compound I, compositions comprising Compound I, and methods of using Compound I are disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 6,869,952 B2, which is assigned to the present assignee and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.Compound I, a prodrug, is suitable for inhibiting tyrosine kinase activity of growth factor receptors such as VEGFR-2 and FGFR-1 and is useful in the treatment of cancer. Compound I is also useful in the treatment of diseases, other than cancer, which are associated with signal transduction pathways operating through growth factors and anti-angiogenesis receptors such as VEGFR-2.

Typically, in the preparation of a pharmaceutical composition, a form of the active ingredient having desired properties such as dissolution rate, solubility, bioavailability, and/or storage stability is sought. For example, a form of the active ingredient, which has the desired solubility and bioavailability, has sufficient stability that it does not convert during manufacture or storage of the pharmaceutical composition to a different form having different solubility and/or bioavailibility. A form of Compound I is desired having properties and stability that allow the preparation of pharmaceutical compositions suitable for the treatment of diseases such as cancer.

Abstract Image

A series of amino acid ester prodrugs of the dual VEGFR-2/FGFR-1 kinase inhibitor 1 (BMS-540215) was prepared in an effort to improve the aqueous solubility and oral bioavailability of the parent compound. These prodrugs were evaluated for their ability to liberate parent drug1 in in vitro and in vivo systems. The l-alanine prodrug 8 (also known as brivanib alaninate/BMS-582664) was selected as a development candidate and is presently in phase II clinical trials.

Abstract Image

A series of substituted 4-(4-fluoro-1H-indol-5-yloxy)pyrrolo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazine-based inhibitors of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 kinase is reported. Structure−activity relationship studies revealed that a methyl group at the 5-position and a substituted alkoxy group at the 6-position of the pyrrolo[2,1-f][1,2,4]triazine core gave potent compounds. Biochemical potency, kinase selectivity, and pharmacokinetics of the series were optimized and in vitro safety liabilities were minimized to afford BMS-540215 (12), which demonstrated robust preclinical in vivo activity in human tumor xenograft models. The l-alanine prodrug of12, BMS-582664 (21), is currently under evaluation in clinical trials for the treatment of solid tumors.
