GATIFLOXACIN
BMS-206584, CG-5501, AM-1155, Zymar, Bonoq, Gatiflo, AM-1155
(±)-1-Cyclopropyl-6-fluoro-8-methoxy-7-(3-methyl-1-piperazinyl)-4-oxo-1,4-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylic acid
Gatifloxacin sold under the brand names GatifloTequin and Zymar, is an antibiotic of the fourth-generation fluoroquinolonefamily,[1] that like other members of that family, inhibits the bacterial enzymes DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IVBristol-Myers Squibb introduced Gatifloxacin in 1999 under the proprietary name Tequin for the treatment of respiratory tract infections, having licensed the medication from Kyorin Pharmaceutical Company of Japan. Allergan produces it in eye-drop formulation under the names Zymar and Zymaxid. In many countries, gatifloxacin is also available as tablets and in various aqueous solutions forintravenous therapy.
Originally developed at Kyorin, gatifloxacin was first licensed to Gruenenthal in Europe, and that company still maintains rights to the oral and injectable formulations of the product. In October 1996, Kyorin licensed gatifloxacin to BMS, granting the company development and marketing rights in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Mexico, Brazil and certain other markets. In 2006, rights to the compound were returned by BMS. Subsequently, Senju and Kyorin signed a licensing agreement regarding the development of ethical eye drops containing the fluoroquinolone. In April 2000, Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma agreed to comarket the oral formulation in Japan. In August of that year, Allergan in-licensed gatifloxacin from Kyorin, gaining development and commercialization rights to the drug in all territories except Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan. The India-based Lupin Pharmaceuticals signed an agreement in June 2004 with Allergan to promote the ophthalmic solution of gatifloxacin in the pediatric specialty area in the U.S. PediaMed Pharmaceuticals also holds rights to the drug. In 2009, Kyorin licensed the drug candidate to Senju in China.
Gatifloxacin is the common name for (±)-1-cyclopropyl-6-fluoro-1,4-dihydro-8-methoxy-7-(3-methyl-1-piperazinyl)-4-oxo-3-quinolinecarboxylic acid (1), one of the most important broad-spectrum antibacterial agents and a member of the fourth-generation fluoroquinolone family.(1)Fluoroquinolones inhibit the enzyme DNA gyrase (topoisomerase II), which is responsible for the supercoiling of the DNA double helix, preventing the replication and repair of bacterial DNA and RNA.(2) Gatifloxacin (1) reached the market in 1999 under the brand name Tequin for the treatment of respiratory tract infections. The drug is available as tablets and aqueous solutions for intravenous therapy as well as eye drop formulation (Zymar).
To date, there are several processes described for the preparation of gatifloxacin, which can be grouped into two main categories: direct substitution of the 7-position fluorine atom of 1-cyclopropyl-6,7-difluoro-1,4-dihydro-8-methoxy-4-oxo-3-quinolinecarboxylic acid (2) by 2-methylpiperazine (Scheme 1),(3-5) and through boron chelate-type intermediates to overcome the diminished reactivity induced by the 8-methoxy group, which uses as starting material the ethyl ester derivative 3 (Scheme 2).(6-9)

preparation of Gatifloxacin hemihydrate from Ethyl-1- Cyclopropyl-6, 7-difluoro-8-methoxy-4-oxo-l, 4-dihydro-3-quinoline carboxylate through boron difluoride chelate. Ethyl-1-cyclopropyl- 6, 7-difluoro-8-methoxy-4-oxo-l, 4-dihydro-3-quinoline carboxylate is reacted with aqueous hydrofluoroboric acid followed by condensation with 2-methyl piperazine in polar organic solvent resulting in an intermediate l-Cyclopropyl-7- (3-methyl piperazin-1- yl). -6-fluoro-8-methoxy-4-oxo-l, 4-dihydro-3-quinoline carboxylic acid boron difluoride chelate. This intermediate may be further hydrolyzed to yield Gatifloxacin. Gatifloxacin so obtained may needs purification to yield high purity product. However to obtain directly high purity Gatifloxacin it is desirable to isolate the intermediate by cooling to low temperatures . Treating with an alcohol or mixture of alcohols purifies this intermediate. The purified condensed chelate in aqueous ethanol on hydrolysis with triethylamine followed by crystallization in ethanol gives Gatifloxacin hemihydrate with high purity.

Gatifloxacin is the international common name of l-cyclopropyl-6-fluoro-l, 4-dihydro-8-methoxy- 1- (3-methyl-l-piperazinyl) -4-oxo-3-guinolin-carboxylic acid of formula (I) , with application in medicine and known for its antibiotic activity:

European patent application EP-A-230295 discloses a process for obtaining gatifloxacin that consists on the reaction of compound (II) with 2-

 

Figure imgf000002_0002

In this process the gatifloxacin is isolated in the form of a hemihydrate after a laborious process of column chromatography and recrystallisation in methanol, which contributes towards making the final yield lower than 20% by weight. Moreover, in said process an undesired by-product is formed, resulting from demethylation at position 8 of the ring. European patent application EP-A-241206 discloses a process for preparing gatifloxacin, whose final steps are as follows:

Gatifloxacin (I)

(IV) This process uses the intermediate compound (III) , which has been prepared and isolated in a separate operation, while the intermediate compound (IV) is also isolated before proceeding to its conversion into gatifloxacin by treatment with ethanol in the presence of triethylamine. The overall yield from these three steps is lower than 40%. These disadvantages — a synthesis involving several steps, low yields, and the need to isolate the intermediate products — hinder the production of gatifloxacin on an industrial scale. There is therefore a need to provide a process for preparing gatifloxacin with a good chemical yield, without the need to isolate the intermediate compounds and that substantially avoids demethylation in position 8 of the ring. The processes termed in English “one pot” are characterised in that the synthesis is carried out in the same reaction vessel, without isolating the intermediate compounds, and by means of successive addition of the reacting compounds. The authors of the present invention have discovered a simplified process for preparing gatifloxacin which does not require isolation of the intermediate compounds .

 

Example 1: Preparing gatifloxacin from compound (II) 10 g (0.0339 moles, 1 equivalent) of compound

(II) is placed in a flask, 30 ml of acetonitryl (3 volumes) is added and this is heated to a temperature of 76-80° C.

Figure imgf000004_0001

Once reflux has been attained, and being the temperature maintained, 3.28 g (0.0203 moles, 0.6 equivalents) of hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) is added with a compensated adding funnel. Once addition is completed, the reaction is maintained with stirring for 1 hour at a temperature of 76-80° C. Once this period has elapsed, the reaction mixture is cooled to a temperature ranging between 0 and 15° C, and 5.78 g (0.0407 moles, 1.2 equivalents) of boron trifluoride ethyletherate is added while keeping the temperature below 15° C. Once addition is completed, the temperature is allowed to rise to 15- 25° C and it is kept under these conditions for approximately 2 hours. The pH of the mixture is then adjusted to an approximate value of 9 with triethylamine (approximately 2 ml) . To the resulting suspension is added a solution of 10.19 g (0.1017 moles, 3 equivalents) of 2-methylpiperazine in 28 ml of acetonitryl, while maintaining the temperature between 15 and 25° C. The resulting amber solution is kept with stirring under these conditions for approximately 3 hours . Once the reaction has been completed, the solution is distilled at low pressure until a stirrable paste is obtained. At this point 50 ml of methanol is added, the resulting suspension is raised to a temperature of 63-67° C and is kept under these conditions for approximately 5 hours . Once the reaction has been completed, the mixture is cooled to a temperature of 25-35° C in a water bath, and then at a temperature of 0-5° C in a water/ice bath for a further 1 hour. The resulting precipitate is filtered, washed with cold methanol (2 x 10 ml) and dried at 40° C in a vacuum oven to constant weight. 10.70 g of crude gatifloxacin is obtained, having a water content of 2.95% by weight. The yield of the process is 81.8%.

The crude product is crystallised in methanol by dissolving 20 g of crude gatifloxacin in 1 1 of methanol (50 volumes) at a temperature of 63-67° C. Once all the product has been dissolved, the solution is left to cool to a temperature of 30-40° C, and then to a temperature of 0-5° C in a water/ice bath, maintaining it under these conditions for 1 hour. The resulting suspension is filtered and the solid retained is washed with 20 ml (1 volume) of cold methanol. The solid obtained is dried at 40° C in a vacuum oven to provide 18.65 g of gatifloxacin with a water content of 2.36% by weight.

The overall yield from the compound (II) is 77.7%, with a purity exceeding 99.8% as determined by HPLC chromatography. The content of by-product resulting from demethylation in position 8 of the ring is lower than 0.1% as determined by HPLC chromatography.

Abstract Image

An improved process to obtain gatifloxacin (1) through use of boron chelate intermediates has been developed. The methodology involves an initial activation step which accelerates the formation of the first chelate under low-temperature conditions and prevents demethylation of the starting material. To increase the overall yield and to avoid the isolation and manipulation of the resulting intermediates, the process has been designed to be carried out in one pot. As a result, we present here an easy, scaleable and substantially impurity-free process to obtain gatifloxacin (1) in high yield.

DSC analysis showed two endothermic peaks at 166.2 °C (T onset = 164.3 °C) and 190.0 °C (T onset = 188.2 °C) and an exothermic one at 168.1 °C. The shape of this DSC curve is characteristic of a monotropic transition between crystalline forms

Although there are several hydrates described for gatifloxacin such as, among others, the hemimydrate, sesquihydrate, and pentahydrate(Raghavan, K. S.; Ranadive, S. A.;Gougoutas, J. Z.; Dimarco, J. D.; Parker, W. L.; Dovich, M.; Neuman, A.Gatifloxacin pentahydrate. WO 2002/22126 A1, 2002) , the Gatifloxacin obtained by the present procedure does not seem to form a stoichometric hydrate, but instead it retains moisture.

Thus, the product is usually obtained with a Karl-Fischer value below 1% after drying, but it can absorb moisture until a final content of about 3%. This water content can vary between 2.0% and 3.5%, depending on the relative humidity of the environment. DSC analysis revealed a broad endothermic signal with minimum at 76 °C, while TGA analysis showed that the product loses all the water below 80 °C.

No loss of weight is registered when the product melts, and the weight is constant until the decomposition of the material at about 200 °C. On the basis of these results, it can be said that the water content of the gatifloxacin obtained by the present process is retained moisture instead of water belonging to the lattice. The shape of the derivative of the weight curve at the beginning of the analysis shows that the sample has already lost part of the moisture when the register starts. This is probably due to the sample starting to lose weight when makes contact with the dry atmosphere of the TGA oven that could explain the different values obtained for water content of the analyzed sample by TGA (1.90%) and Karl-Fischer (2.64%) methods.

Side-effects and removal from the market

Canadian study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in March 2006 claims Tequin can have significant side effectsincluding dysglycemia.[2] An editorial by Dr. Jerry Gurwitz in the same issue called for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to consider giving Tequin a black box warning.[3] This editorial followed distribution of a letter dated February 15 by Bristol-Myers Squibb to health care providers indicating action taken with the FDA to strengthen warnings for the medication.[4] Subsequently it was reported on May 1, 2006 that Bristol-Myers Squibb would stop manufacture of Tequin, end sales of the drug after existing stockpiles were exhausted, and return all rights to Kyorin.[5]

Union Health and Family Welfare Ministry of India on 18 March 2011 banned the manufacture, sale and distribution of Gatifloxacin as it caused certain adverse side effects[6]

Contraindications

Diabetes[7]

Availability

Gatifloxacin is currently available only in the US and Canada as an ophthalmic solution.

In China it is sold in tablet as well as in eye drop formulations.

Ophthalmic anti-infectives are generally well tolerated. The concentration of the drug observed following oral administration of 400 mg gatifloxacin systemically is approximately 800 times higher than that of the 0.5% Gatifloxacin eye drop. Given as an eye drop, Gatifloxacin Ophthalmic Solution 0.3% & 0.5% cause very low systemic exposures. Therefore, the systemic exposures resulting from the gatifloxacin ophthalmic solution are not likely to pose any risk for systemic toxicities.

  • The reaction of 1-bromo-2,4,5-trifluoro-3-methoxybenzene (I) with CuCN and N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone at 150 C gives 2,4,5-trifluoro-3-methoxybenzonitrile (II), which by treatment with concentrated H2SO4 yields the benzamide (III) The hydrolysis of (III) with H2SO4 -. water at 110 C affords 2,4,5-trifluoro-2-methoxybenzoic acid (IV), which by reaction with SOCl2 is converted into the acyl chloride (V). The condensation of (V) with diethyl malonate by means of magnesium ethoxide in toluene affords diethyl 2- (2,4,5-trifluoro-3-methoxybenzoyl) malonate (VI), which by treatment with p-toluenesulfonic acid in refluxing water gives ethyl 2- (2,4,5-trifluoro-3-methoxybenzoyl) acetate (VII). The condensation of (VII) with triethyl orthoformate in refluxing acetic anhydride yields 3-ethoxy -2- (2,4,5-trifluoro-3-methoxybenzoyl) acrylic acid ethyl ester (VIII), which is treated with cyclopropylamine (IX) to afford the corresponding cyclopropylamino derivative (X). The cyclization of (X) by means of NaF in refluxing DMF gives 1-cyclopropyl-6,7-difluoro-8-methoxy-4-oxo-1,4-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (XI), which is hydrolyzed with H2SO4 in acetic acid to yield the corresponding free acid (XII). Finally, this compound is condensed with 2-methylpiperazine (XIII) in hot DMSO.
