Amtolmetin guacil is a NSAID which is a prodrug of tolmetin sodium.

Amtolmetin guacil  is a nonacidic prodrug of tolmetin that has similar nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) properties to those of Tolmetin with additional gastroprotective advantages. The term “nonsteroidal” is used to distinguish these drugs from steroids that have similar eicosanoid-depressing and antiinflammatory actions. Moreover, it possesses a more potent and long-lasting antiinflammatory activity than tolmetin  and is marketed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Background

Tolmetin sodium is an effective NSAID approved and marketed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. In humans, tolmetin sodium is absorbed rapidly with peak plasma levels observed 30 min after p.o. administration, but it is also eliminated rapidly with a mean plasma elimination t½ of approximately 1 hr. The preparation of slow release formulations or chemical modification of NSAIDs to form prodrugs has been suggested as a method to reduce the gastrotoxicity of these agents.

Amtolmetin guacil is a non-acidic prodrug of tolmetin, having similar NSAID properties like tolmetin with additional analgesic, antipyretic, and gastro protective properties. Amtolmetin is formed by amidation of tolmetin by glycine

Pharmacology

  • Almost is absorbed on oral administration. It is concentrated maximum in internal the gastric wall, and highest concentration reached in 2 hours after administration.
  • Amtolmetin guacil hydrolysed in to following metabolites Tolmetin, MED5 and Guiacol.
  • Elimination will complete in 24 hours. Happens mostly with urine in shape of gluconides products (77%), faecal (7.5%).
  • It is advised to take the drug on empty stomach.
  • Permanent anti-inflammatory action is continued up to 72 hours, with single administration.

Mechanism of action

Amtolmetin guacil stimulates capsaicin receptors present on gastro intestinal walls, because of presence of vanillic moiety and also releases NO which is gastro protective. It also inhibits prostaglandin synthesis and cyclooxygenase (COX).

The present invention relates to a new crystalline form of 1- methyl-5-p-toluoylpyrrole-2-acetamidoacetic acid guaiacyl ester, a process for its preparation and to pharmaceutical compositions endowed with antiinflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activity containing same.

The ester of 1-methyl-5-p-toluoylpyrrole-2-acetamidoacetic acid (hereinafter referred to as MED 15, form 1) is a known compound.

In fact, US Patent 4,882,349 discloses a class of N-mono- substituted and N,N-disubstituted amides of l-methyl-5-p- toluoylpyrrole-2-acetic acid (known as Tolmetin) endowed of anti- inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic, antisecretive and antitussive properties.

US Patent 4,578,481 claims a specific compound, endowed with valuable pharmacological activity, encompassed in the above- mentioned class, precisely 1-methyl-5-p-toluoylpyrrole-2-acetamido- acetic acid guaiacyl ester (which is MED 15, form 1), and a process for its preparation.

The process disclosed in US 4,578,481 presents some drawbacks, since it is not easily applicable on industrial scale and gives low yields.

According to the above-mentioned process, Tolmetin was reacted with N,N’-carbonyldiimidazole in tetrahydrofuran (THF), and aminoacetic acid ethyl ester hydrochloride was added to the reaction mixture.

Following a complex series of washings in order to remove the unreacted starting compounds, and crystallisation from benzene/ cyclohexane, 1-methyl-5-p-toluoylpyrrole-2-acetamidoace-tic acid ethyl ester was obtained. This compound was subsequently transformed into the corresponding acid.

The acid was reacted with N,N’-carbonyldiimidazole obtaining the corresponding imidazolide, to which a solution of guaiacol in

THF was added.

From the reaction mixture, following several washings, neutralisation and crystallisation from benzene/ cyclohexane MED 15 form 1 was obtained.

The main physico-chemical characteristics of MED 15 form 1 are shown in table 1, left column.

The above mentioned process comprises the following steps:

(a) hydrolysing TOLMETIN 1 methyl ester with an alkaline hydroxide in a basic environment, obtaining TOLMETIN 2 alkaline salt;

(b) condensing 2 with isobutylchloroformate 3 obtaining the mixed anhydride 4;

(c) reacting 4 with glycine 5 obtaining 1-methyl-5-p-toluoylpyrrol-2- acetoamidacetic acid 6;

(d) condensing 6 with isobutylchloroformate 3 obtaining the mixed anhydride 7; and

(e) reacting the mixed anhydride 7 with guaiacol 8 obtaining 9 , MED 15, form 2.

The following non-limiting example illustrates the preparation of MED 15, form 2, according to the process of the present invention.

Preparation of 1-methyl-p-toluoylpirrol-2-acetoammidoacetic acid.

A mixture of 500 mL of toluene, 100 g of Tolmetin ethyl ester and 10 g of Terre deco in 1L flask, was heated to 70° C and maintained at this temperature for 20-30 min, under stirring. The mixture was then filtered on pre-heated buckner, and the solid phase washed with 50 mL of heated toluene. The discoloured toluene solution was transferred in a 2 L flask, 15 g of sodium hydroxide (97%) dissolved in 100 mL of water were added thereto.

The solution was heated at reflux temperature and refluxed for 1 hour. 22 mL of isobutyl alcohol were added to the solution which was heated at reflux temperature; water (about 120 mL) was removed completely with Marcusson’s apparatus arriving up to 104-105°C inner temperature.

To a suspension of Tolmetin sodium, cooled under nitrogen atmosphere to -5°C ± 2°C, 0.2 mL of N-methyl Morpholine were added. Maintaining the temperature at 0°C ± 3°C, 53 mL of isobutyl chloroformate were added dropwise in 5-10 min. After about 1 hour the suspension became fluid. Following 3 hours of reaction at 0°C + 3°C, over the glycine solution previously prepared, the mixed anhydride solution was added dropwise. The glycine solution was prepared in a flask containing 230 mL of demineralised water, 47 g of potassium hydrate (90%), cooling the solution to 20°C ± 2, adding 60 g of glycine, and again cooling to 10°C ± 2°C.

To the glycine solution, the mixed anhydride was added dropwise under stirring, in 5-10 min., maintaining the temperature at 20°C ± 2°C.

At the end of the addition, temperature was left to rise to room temperature, 1 hour later the reaction was complete. To the mixture 325 mL of demineralised water were added, the mixture was brought to pH 6.0 +2 using diluted (16%) hydrochloric acid (about 100 mL).

The temperature of the solution was brought to 73°C ±2°C and the pH adjusted to pH 5.0 ±0.2.

The separation of the two phases was made at hot temperature: the toluene phase was set aside for recovering acid-Tolmetin if any, the water phase was maintained at 73°C ±2°C and brought to pH 4.0 ±0.2 using diluted hydrochloric acid.

At the beginning of the precipitation the solution was slowly brought to pH 3.0 ±0.2 using diluted (16%) hydrochloric acid (100 mL).

The mixture was cooled to 15°C ±3°C and after 30 min. filtered. The solid cake was washed with 2×100 mL of demineralised water, the product was dried at 60°C under vacuum till constant weight. 100 g of 1-methyl-p-toluoylpirrol-2-acetoammidoacetic acid were obtained.

Preparation of MED 15, form 2

To a 2 L flask containing 730 mL of toluene, 100 g of dried compound of the above step were dissolved. To this solution 18.8 g of potassium hydrate (tit. 90%) in 65 mL of water were added.

The solution was dried maintaining the internal temperature at 95-100°C, and cooled to 55-60 °C. A solution of potassium hydrogen carbonate was then added and the resulting mixture was dried maintaining the internal temperature at 105°C ±2°C.

The mixture was cooled under nitrogen atmosphere to 5°C

±2°C, 24 mL of isobutyl alcohol and 0.3 mL of N-methyl morpholine were added thereto.

Maintaining the temperature at 10°C ±3°C, 47 mL of isobutyl-chloroformate were added dropwise in 5-10 minutes. The mixture was left to react for two hours at 10°C ±3°C obtaining an anhydride solution, which was added to a guaiacol solution previously prepared.

The guaiacol solution was prepared by loading in a 2L-flask 295 mL of water, 25 g of potassium hydrate (90%), and 0.3 g of sodium metabisulfite.

At the end of the loading the temperature was brought to 35-40°C.

The anhydride was added dropwise in 5- 10 min and the temperature was left to rise to room temperature.

The suspension was kept under stirring for 1 hour and brought to pH 6.0 ±0.5 with diluted hydrochloric acid. The suspension was heated to 70°C ± 5°C and maintained at pH 3-4 with diluted hydrochloric acid.

The phases were separated while hot. The aqueous phase was discharged, and to the organic phase, 250 mL of water were added.

Maintaining the temperature at 70 ±5°C the solution was brought to pH 8.0 ±0.5 with diluted sodium hydrate, the phases were separated while hot and the acqueous phase was discharged.

The organic phase was washed with 250 mL of water. At 70 ± 5°C the phases were separated. The toluene phase was then cleared with dicalite, filtered and left to crystallise.

The mixture was slowly cooled to 30°C – 35°C, the temperature was then brought to 10 ± 3°C and after 1 hour filtered, washed with toluene (2×100 mL).

The product was brought to dryness at 60°C under vacuum, thus giving 100 g of compound MED 15, form 2.

Theoretical yield: 133.7 g; Yield %: 74.8%.
