OFLOXACIN was developed as a broader-spectrum analog of norfloxacin, the first fluoroquinolone antibiotic, Ofloxacin was first patented in 1982 (European Patent Daiichi) and received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval December 28, 1990. In the United States name branded ofloxacin is rarely used anymore, having been discontinued by the manufacturer (Ortho McNeil Janssen). Johnson and Johnson’s annual sales of Floxin in 2003 was approximately $30 million, where as their combined sales of Levaquin/Floxin exceeded $ 1.15 billion in the same year. During the 2008 Johnson & Johnson shareholder’s meetings, the safety of both ofloxacin and levafloxacin were called into question. During the 2009 meeting, yet another shareholder who alleges to have been crippled by these drugs, John Fratti, raised these same issues having seen no significant changes in the warnings (regarding the issues raised during the 2008 meeting). Once again a public request for stronger warnings for both ofloxacin and levofloxacin was made.

Ofloxacin is a synthetic antibiotic of the fluoroquinolone drug class considered to be a second-generation fluoroquinolone.[1][2]

Ofloxacin was first patented in 1982 (European Patent Daiichi) and received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on December 28, 1990. Ofloxacin is sold under a wide variety of brand names as well as generic drug equivalents, for oral and intravenous administration. Ofloxacin is also available for topical use, as eye drops and ear drops (marketed as Ocuflox and Floxin Otic respectively in the United States and marketed as Optiflox, eylox respectively in Jordan and Saudi Arabia[3]).

Ofloxacin is a racemic mixture, which consists of 50% levofloxacin (the biologically active component) and 50% of its “mirror image” or enantiomer dextrofloxacin.[4]

Ofloxacin has been associated with adverse drug reactions, such as tendon damage (including spontaneous tendon ruptures) and peripheral neuropathy (which may be irreversible); tendon damange may manifest long after therapy had been completed, and, in severe cases, may result in lifelong disabilities.[5]

History

Ofloxacin was developed as a broader-spectrum analog of norfloxacin, the first fluoroquinolone antibiotic,[6] Ofloxacin was first patented in 1982 (European Patent Daiichi) and received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval December 28, 1990.

In the United States name branded ofloxacin is rarely used anymore, having been discontinued by the manufacturer, Ortho-McNeil-Janssen, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.[7] Johnson and Johnson’s annual sales of Floxin in 2003 was approximately $30 million, whereas their combined sales of Levaquin/Floxin exceeded $1.15 billion in the same year.[8][9] However generic use continues. The FDA website lists Floxin (Ortho McNeil Jannsen) as being discontinued, with just a few generic equivalents still in use. The otic solution continues to be listed as being available both as an original drug as well as a generic equivalent.

Medical uses

In the in the U.S. ofloxacin is approved for the treatment of bacterial infections such as:

  • Uncomplicated skin and skin structure infections
  • Acute, uncomplicated urethral and cervical gonorrhea.

Ofloxacin has not been shown to be effective in the treatment of syphilis.[10] Floxin is no longer considered a first line treatment for gonnorrhea due to bacterial resistance.[11][12][13]

Available forms

Ofloxacin for systemic use is available as tablet (multiple strengths), oral solution (250 mg/mL), and injectable solution (multiple strengths). It is also used as eye drops and ear drops. It is also available in combination with ornidazole.

Mode of action

Ofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is active against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. It functions by inhibiting DNA gyrase, a type II topoisomerase, and topoisomerase IV,[14] which is an enzyme necessary to separate (mostly in prokaryotes, in bacteria in particular) replicated DNA, thereby inhibiting bacterial cell division.

Reference example

  • By using 2,4,4-trimethylcyclopentyl acid as a start­ing material, ethyl 9,l0-difluoro-3-methyl-7-oxo-2,3-di­hydro-7H-pyrido[l,2,3-de] [l,4]benzoxazine-6-carboxylate (IV) which is an important intermediate for synthesis of an antibacterial agent, ofloxacin (9-fluoro-3-methyl-l0-­(4-methyl-l-piperazinyl)-7-oxo-2,3-dihydro-7H-pyrido[l,2,­3-de][l,4]benzoxazine-6-carboxylic acid) was synthesized following the reaction schemes shown below.

[Step 1]

  • To l2.6 g (0.066 mole) of 2,4,4-trimethylcyclopentyl acid was added 40 ml of acetic anhydride, and the mixture was stirred for l5 hours under reflux. The reaction mixture was poured into ice-cold water, and then extracted with chloroform. The chloroform layer was washed with water, condensed under reduced pressure and the residue was washed with n-hexane to give 6.l0 g of 3-acetoxy-2,4,5-­trifluorobenzoic acid (V) as colorless powder.Mass (CI): m/e 235 (M⁺ + l), 2l7 (M⁺ – OH), l75 (M⁺ – CH₃COO)

[Steps 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6]

  • In 200 ml of benzene was dissolved 6.l0 g (0.026 mole) of 3-acetoxy-2,4,5-trifluorobenzoic acid (V), and to the solution was added l5 ml of thionyl chloride and stirred for 4 hours under reflux. After completion of the reac­tion, benzene and excess thionyl chloride were completely distilled off under reduced pressure to give 3-acetoxy-­2,4,5-trifluorobenzoyl chloride (VI).
  • On the other hand, to l00 ml of anhydrous diethyl ether were added 3.l7 g (0.028 mole) of magnesium ethoxide and 4.30 g (0.027 mole) of diethyl malonate and refluxed for 3 hours to give a suspension of ethoxymagnesium malonic diethyl ester in diethylether. To the suspension was added dropwise a solution of the above acid chloride dissolved in 50 ml of anhyrous diethyl ether, and after completion of the dropwise addition, the mixture was further stirred for an hour at room temperature. After completion of the reaction, l N hydrochloric acid was added to the mixture to made it acidic, and the mixture was extracted with ethyl acetate. The organic layer was washed with water and dried, and then the solvent was distilled under reduced pressure to give l0.39 g of di­ethyl 3-acetoxy-2,4,5-trifluorobenzoylmalonate (VII) as yellowish oily product.
  • Then, the yellowish oily product was dissolved in l20 ml of dioxane and 4.90 g (0.026 mole) of p-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate was added to the mixture and refluxed for l5 hours. After completion of the reaction, dioxane was distilled under reduced pressure. To the residue were added l00 ml of water and 2.l5 g (0.026 mole) of sodium hydrogen carbonate and the mixture was extracted with chloroform. The chloroform layer was washed with water, dried and then distilled under reduced pressure to give 7.64 g of ethyl 3-acetoxy-2,4,5-trifluorobenzoylacetate (VIII) as reddish oily product.
  • To 7.64 g (0.025 mole) of the ethyl 3-acetoxy-2,4,5-tri­fluorobenzoylacetate (VIII) thus obtained were added 20 ml of acetic anhydride and 6 ml of ortho-ethyl formate and the mixture was refluxed for 2 hours and then condensed under reduced pressure. The residue was dissolved in 50 ml of dichloromethane, added l.9l g (0.026 mole) of DL-2-­aminopropanol and allowed to stand over night. Dichloro­methane was distilled under reduced pressure and the residue was applied to silica gel column chromatography (solvent: mixture of toluene : ethyl acetate = l : l) to give 4.37 g of ethyl-2-(3-acetoxy-2,4,5-trifluorobenzoyl)-­3-(2-hydroxy-l-methylethyl)aminoacrylate (X) as pale yellow oily product.Mass: m/e 389 (M⁺), 358 (M⁺ – CH₂OH), 43 (+

    CH₃)

[Step 7]

  • In 30 ml of dimethylformamide was dissolved 4.30 g of the ethyl-2-(3-acetoxy-2,4,5-trifluorobenzoyl)-3-(2-hydroxy-l-­methylethyl)aminoacrylate (X) thus obtained and l.92 g (0.033 mole) of potassium fluoride was added to the mix­ture and the mixture was stirred at l40 to l50 °C for 2 hours. After completion of the reaction, the solvent was distilled under reduced pressure. To the residue was added water and the mixture was extracted with dichloro­methane, and the organic layer was washed with water, dried and then condensed under reduced pressure. Then, the residue was washed with ethanol, and the residue was recrystallized from acetone to give l.40 g of ethyl-9,l0-­difluoro-3-methyl-7-oxo-2,3-dihydro-7H-pyrido[l,2,3-de]­[l,4]benzoxazine-6-carboxylate (IV) as pale brown fine needle crystals.M.p.: 255 to 256 °C
    Elemental analysis (%): as C₁₅H₁₃F₂NO₄

  • According to the present invention, a novel compound 2,4,4-trimethylcyclopentyl acid useful as the syn­thetic intermediate for quinolone carboxylic acid deriva­tives which is useful as antibacterial agents can be provided, and the preparation steps of said quinolone carboxylic acid derivatives can be shortened to a great extent by use of said compound.

Production of Ofloxacin
The partial hydrolysis ot 2,3,4-trifluoronitrobenzene (I) with KOH in DMSO gives 2,3-difluoro-6-nitrophenol (II), which by condensation with chloroacetone (III) by means of K2CO3 – KI in refluxing acetone yields 2-acetonyloxy-3,4-difluoronitrobenzene (IV). The reductive cyclization of (IV) with H2 over Raney-Ni in ethanol affords 7,8-difluoro-2,3-dihydro-3-methyl-4H-benzoxazine (V), which is condensed with diethyl ethoxymethylenemalonate (VI) by heating at 145 C giving the malonic derivative (VII). The cyclization of (VII) by heating at 145 C with ethyl polyphosphate (PPE) yields ethyl 9,10-difluoro-3-methyl-7-oxo-2,3-dihydro-7H-pyrido[1,2,3-de]-1,4-benzoxazine-6-carboxylate (VIII), which is hydrolyzed with HCl in refluxing acetic acid affording the corresponding free acid (IX). Finally, this compound is condensed with N-methylpiperazine (X) in DMSO at 110 C.

Systematic NMR spectroscopic investigation on ofloxacin in both acidic and alkaline solutions was carried out via 1H, 13C NMR, DEPT, COSY, HSQC spectra together with HMBC techniques. Complete assignment on 1H and 13C NMR of ofloxacin was obtained in different pH environments where the coupling constant between 13C and 19F was found to be very helpful for the assignment of aromatic 13C NMR signals. Additionally, the chemical shifts of 1H from the complex spin systems such as AA’BB’ were obtained using HSQC technique. Comparisons were made among the NMR spectra in acidic solution and those in alkaline solution, which demonstrate that: (1) deprivation of H+ from COOH in alkaline solution destroys the hydrogen bond between COOH and carbonyl group in ofloxacin. This brings about the redistribution of π elelctrons around the carboxyl and carbonyl groups so that significant variations of 13C NMR chemical shift and coupling constant JFC are observed. (2) In the alkaline solution, the removal of proton from N4 in piperazine ring induces considerable variation of chemical shift of methylene groups and causes remarkable changes of dynamic behavior of the piperazine ring.
