Eliglustat, marketed by Genzyme as CERDELGA, is a glucosylceramide synthase inhibitor indicated for the long-term treatment of type 1 Gaucher disease. Patients selected for treatment with Eliglustat undergo an FDA approved genotype test to establish if they are CYP2D6 EM (extensive metabolizers), IM (intermediate metabolizers), or PM (poor metabolizers), as the results of this test dictate the dosage of Eliglustat recommended. Eliglustat was approved for use by the FDA in August 2014.

Eliglustat (INN, USAN;[1] trade name Cerdelga) is a treatment for Gaucher’s disease developed by Genzyme Corp that was approved by the FDA August 2014.[2] Commonly used as the tartrate salt, the compound is believed to work by inhibition ofglucosylceramide synthase.[3][4] According to an article in Journal of the American Medical Association the oral substrate reduction therapy resulted in “significant improvements in spleen volume, hemoglobin level, liver volume, and platelet count” in untreated adults with Gaucher disease Type 1.[5]

CERDELGA (eliglustat) capsules contain eliglustat tartrate, which is a small molecule inhibitor of glucosylceramide synthase that resembles the ceramide substrate for the enzyme, with the chemical name N-((1R,2R)-1-(2,3-dihydrobenzo[b][1,4]dioxin-6-yl)-1- hydroxy-3-(pyrrolidin-1-yl)propan-2-yl)octanamide (2R,3R)-2,3-dihydroxysuccinate. Its molecular weight is 479.59, and the empirical formula is C23H36N2O4+½(C4H6O6) with the following chemical structure:

CERDELGA (eliglustat) Structural Formula Illustration

Each capsule of CERDELGA for oral use contains 84 mg of eliglustat, equivalent to 100 mg of eliglustat tartrate (hemitartrate salt). The inactive ingredients are microcrystalline cellulose, lactose monohydrate, hypromellose and glyceryl behenate, gelatin, candurin silver fine, yellow iron oxide, and FD&C blue 2.

Cost

In 2014, the annual cost of Cerdelga hard gelatin capsules taken orally twice a day was $310,250. Genzyme’s flagship Imiglucerase(brand name Cerezyme) cost about $300,000 for the infusions if taken twice a month.[6] Manufacturing costs for Cerdelga are slightly lower than for Cerezyme. Genzyme’s maintains higher prices for orphan drugs—most often paid for by insurers— in order to remain financially sustainable.[6]

Chemically Eliglustat is named N-[(1 R,2R)-2-(2,3-dihydro-1 ,4-benzodioxin-6-yl)-2-hydroxy-1 -(1 -pyrrolidinylmethyl)ethyl]-Octanamide(2R!3R)-2,3-dihydroxybutanedioate and the hemitartarate salt of eliglustat has the structural formula as shown in Formula I.

Formula I

Eliglustat hemitartrate (Genz-1 12638), currently under development by Genzyme, is a glucocerebroside (glucosylceramide) synthase inhibitor for the treatment of Gaucher disease and other lysosomal storage disorders. Eliglustat hemitartrate is orally active with potent effects on the primary identified molecular target for type 1 Gaucher disease and other glycosphingolipidoses, appears likely to fulfill high expectations for clinical efficacy. Gaucher disease belongs to the class of lysosomal diseases known as glycosphingolipidoses, which result directly or indirectly from the accumulation of glycosphingolipids, many hundreds of which are derived from glucocerebroside. The first step in glycosphingolipid biosynthesis is the formation of glucocerebroside, the primary storage molecule in Gaucher disease, via glucocerebroside synthase (uridine diphosphate [UDP] – glucosylceramide glucosyl transferase). Eliglustat hemitartrate is based on improved inhibitors of glucocerebroside synthase, and is currently under development by Genzyme.

U.S. patent No. 7,196,205 discloses a process for the preparation of Eliglustat or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

U.S. patent No. 6855830, 7265228, 7615573, 7763738, 8138353, U.S. patent application publication No. 2012/296088 discloses process for preparation of Eliglustat and intermediates thereof.

U.S. patent application publication No. 2013/137743 discloses (i) a hemitartrate salt of Eliglustat, (ii) a hemitartrate salt of Eliglustat, wherein at least 70% by weight of the salt is crystalline, (iii) a hemitartrate salt of Eliglustat, wherein at least 99% by weight of the salt is in a single crystalline form.

It has been disclosed earlier that the amorphous forms in a number of drugs exhibit different dissolution characteristics and in some cases different bioavailablity patterns compared to crystalline forms [Konne T., Chem pharm Bull., 38, 2003(1990)]. For some therapeutic indications one bioavailabihty pattern may be favoured over another. An amorphous form of Cefuroxime axetil is a good example for exhibiting higher bioavailability than the crystalline form.

Eliglustat tartrate, developed and marketed by Genzyme Corporation (a subsidiary of Sanofi), was approved by the US FDA in August 2014 for the treatment of nonneuropathic (type 1) Gaucher disease (GD1) in both treatment-naïve and treatment-experienced adult patients.98

It is the first oral treatment to be approved for first-line use in patients with Gaucher disease type 1, which is a rare lysosomal storage disease characterized by accumulation of lipid glucosylceramide (GL-1) due to insufficient production of the enzyme glucosylceramidase.99,100

Clinical complications include hepatosplenomegaly, anemia, thrombocytopenia, and bone involvement.101 Eliglustat is a specific inhibitor of glucosylceramide synthase with an IC50 of 10 ng/mL and acts as substrate reduction therapy for GD1;102 it has demonstrated non-inferiority to enzyme replacement therapy, which is the current standard of care, in Phase III trials.99

While the process-scale route has not yet been disclosed,103 the largest scale route to eliglustat tartrate reported to date is described in Scheme 15.104

Condensation of commercially available S-(+)-2-phenyl glycinol (87) with phenyl bromoacetate (88) in acetonitrile in the presence of N,N-diisopropylethylamine (DIPEA) provided morpholin-2-one 89 upon treatment with HCl.Neutralization with NaHCO3 followed by coupling with aldehyde 90 in refluxing EtOAc/toluene yielded oxazine adduct 91, which was isolated as a precipitate from methyl-tert-butyl ether (MTBE).

The stereochemistry of the three new stereocenters in 91 can be rationalized through the cycloaddition of an ylide intermediate in the sterically-preferred S-configuration (generated by the reaction of the morpholinone 89 with aldehyde 90) with a second equivalent of the aldehyde. With the morpholinone in a chair conformation in which the phenyl group is equatorial, endo axial approach of the dipolarophile to the less-hindered face of the ylide and subsequent ring flip of the morpholinone ring to a boat conformation positions all exocyclic aryl substituents in a pseudoequatorial configuration. 105

Opening of oxazine 91 with pyrrolidine in refluxing THF followed by addition of HCl in refluxing MeOH gave amide 92, which was reduced to amine 93 using LiAlH4 in refluxing THF.

Subsequent hydrogenation with Pd(OH)2 in EtOH cleaved the phenylethanol group to give the free amine, which was converted to dioxalate salt 94 by treatment with oxalic acid in methyl isobutylketone (MIBK). Subjection of aminoethanol 94 to aqueous sodium hydroxide followed by coupling with palmitic acid Nhydroxysuccinimide (NHS)-ester (95) gave eliglustat as the corresponding freebase (96) in 9.5% overall yield from 87.

Salt formation with L-tartaric acid (0.5 equiv) then provided eliglustat tartrate (XII).106

Genzyme Announces Positive New Data from Two Phase 3 Studies for Oral Eliglustat Tartrate for Gaucher Disease


Eliglustat tartrate (USAN)

CAS:928659-70-5
February 15, 2013
Genzyme , a Sanofi company (EURONEXT: SAN and NYSE: SNY), today announced positive new data from the Phase 3 ENGAGE and ENCORE studies of eliglustat tartrate, its investigational oral therapy for Gaucher disease type 1. The results from the ENGAGE study were presented today at the 9th Annual Lysosomal Disease Network WORLD Symposium in Orlando, Fla. In conjunction with this meeting, Genzyme also released topline data from its second Phase 3 study, ENCORE. Both studies met their primary efficacy endpoints and together will form the basis of Genzyme’s registration package for eliglustat tartrateThe data presented at this year’s WORLD symposium reinforce our confidence that eliglustat tartrate may become an important oral option for patients with Gaucher disease”The company is developing eliglustat tartrate, a capsule taken orally, to provide a convenient treatment alternative for patients with Gaucher disease type 1 and to provide a broader range of treatment options for patients and physicians. Genzyme’s clinical development program for eliglustat tartrate represents the largest clinical program ever focused on Gaucher disease type 1 with approximately 400 patients treated in 30 countries.“The data presented at this year’s WORLD symposium reinforce our confidence that eliglustat tartrate may become an important oral option for patients with Gaucher disease,” said Genzyme’s Head of Rare Diseases, Rogerio Vivaldi MD. “We are excited about this therapy’s potential and are making excellent progress in our robust development plan for bringing eliglustat tartrate to the market.”ENGAGE Study Results:In ENGAGE, a Phase 3 trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of eliglustat tartrate in 40 treatment-naïve patients with Gaucher disease type 1, improvements were observed across all primary and secondary efficacy endpoints over the 9-month study period. Results were reported today at the WORLD Symposium by Pramod Mistry, MD, PhD, FRCP, Professor of Pediatrics & Internal Medicine at Yale University School of Medicine, and an investigator in the trial.The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study had a primary efficacy endpoint of improvement in spleen size in patients treated with eliglustat tartrate. Patients were stratified at baseline by spleen volume. In the study, a statistically significant improvement in spleen size was observed at nine months in patients treated with eliglustat tartrate compared with placebo. Spleen volume in patients treated with eliglustat tartrate decreased from baseline by a mean of 28 percent compared with a mean increase of two percent in placebo patients, for an absolute difference of 30 percent (p<0.0001).

Eliglustat tartate (Genz-112638)

What is Eliglustat?

  • Eliglustat is a new investigational phase 3 compound from Genzyme Corporation that is being studied for type 1 Gaucher Disease.
  • Eliglustat works as a substrate reduction therapy by reducing glucocerebroside. formation.
  • This product is an oral agent (i.e. a pill) that is taken once or twice a day in contrast to an IV infusion for enzyme replacement therapy. Enzyme replacement therapy focuses on replenishing the enzyme that is deficient in Gaucher Disease and breaks down glucocerebroside that accumulates.
  • The clinical trials for eliglustat tartate are sponsored by Genzyme Corporation.

Eliglustat tartrate (Genz-1 12638) is a glucocerebroside (glucosylceramide) synthase inhibitor for the treatment of gaucher disease and other lysosomal storage disorders, which is currently under development.

Eliglustat is chemically known as 1 R, 2R-Octanoic acid [2-(2′, 3′-dihydro-benzo [1 , 4] dioxin-6′-yl)-2-hydroxy-1 -pyrrolidin-1 -ylmethyl]-ethyl]-amide, having a structural formula I depicted here under.

Formula I

Example 1 : Preparation of 5-phenyl morpholine-2-one hydrochloride

To a (S) + phenyl glycinol (100g) add N, N-diisopropylethylamine (314ml) and acetonitrile (2000ml) under nitrogen atmosphere at room temperature. It was cooled to 10- 15° C. Phenyl bromoacetate (172.4g) dissolved in acetonitrile (500ml) was added to the above solution at 15° C over a period of 30 min. The reaction mixture is allowed to room temperature and stirred for 16-20h. Progress of the reaction was monitored by thin layer chromatography. After completion of the reaction, the reaction mixture was concentrated under reduced pressure at a water bath

temperature less than 25° C to get a residue. The residue was dissolved in ethyl acetate (1000ml) and stirred for 1 h at 15-20°C to obtain a white solid. The solid material obtained was filtered and washed with ethyl acetate (200ml).
