SYN

Elagolix is a specific highly potent non-peptide, orally active antagonist of the GnRH receptor. This compound inhibits pituitary luteinizing hormone (LH) secretion directly, potentially preventing the several week delay and flare associated with peptide agonist therapy.

In 2010, elagolix sodium was licensed to Abbott by Neurocrine Biosciences for worldwide development and commercialization for the treatment of endometriosis. In January 2013, Abbott spun-off its research-based pharmaceutical business into a newly-formed company AbbVie.

AbbVie , following its spin-out from Abbott in January 2013, under license from Neurocrine , is developing elagolix, the lead from a series of non-peptide gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonists, for treating hormone-dependent diseases, primarily endometriosis and uterine fibroids.

Elagolix sodium is an oral gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist in development at Neurocrine Biosciences and Abbvie (previously Abbott). In 2017, Abbvie submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) in the U.S. for the management of endometriosis with associated pain. The candidate is being evaluated in phase III trials for the treatment of uterine fibroids.

Elagolix (INNUSAN) (former developmental code names NBI-56418ABT-620) is a highly potent, selective, orally-active, short-duration, non-peptide antagonist of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (GnRHR) (KD = 54 pM) which is under development for clinical use by Neurocrine Biosciences and AbbVie.[2][3] As of 2017, it is in pre-registration for the treatment of endometriosis and phase III clinical trials for the treatment of uterine leiomyoma.[1][4] The drug was also under investigation for the treatment of prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia, but development for these indications was ultimately not pursued.[4] Elagolix is the first of a new class of GnRH inhibitors that have been denoted as “second-generation”, due to their non-peptide nature and oral bioavailability.[1]

Because of the relatively short elimination half-life of elagolix, the actions of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) are not fully blocked throughout the day.[1][5] For this reason, gonadotropin and sex hormone levels are only partially suppressed, and the degree of suppression can be dose-dependently adjusted as desired.[1][5] In addition, if elagolix is discontinued, its effects are rapidly reversible.[1][5] Due to the suppression of estrogen levels by elagolix being incomplete, effects on bone mineral density are minimal, which is in contrast to first-generation GnRH inhibitors.[6][7] Moreover, the incidence and severity of menopausal side effects such as hot flashes are also reduced relative to first-generation GnRH inhibitors.[1][5]

Elagolix sodium is a non-peptide antagonist of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor and chemically known as sodium;4-[[(lR)-2-[5-(2-fluoro-3-methoxyphenyl)-3-[[2-fluoro-6-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]methyl] -4-methyl-2,6-dioxopyrimidin- 1 -yl] -1 -phenylethyl] amino] butanoate as below.

EXAMPLE 1

3-[2(R)-{HYD OXYCARBONYLPROPYL-AMINθ} -2-PHENYLETHYL]-5-(2-FLUORO-3- METHOXYPHENYL)-l-[2-FLUORO-6-(TRIFLUOROMETHYL)BENZYL]-6-METHYL- PYRIMIDINE-2,4(lH,3H)-DIONE

Step IA: Preparation of 2-fluoro-6-(trifluoromethyl)benzylamine la To 2-fluoro-6-(trifluoromethyl)benzonitrile (45 g, 0.238 mmol) in 60 mL of TΗF was added 1 M BΗ3:TΗF slowly at 60 °C and the resulting solution was refluxed overnight. The reaction mixture was cooled to ambient temperature. Methanol (420 mL) was added slowly and stirred well. The solvents were then evaporated and the residue was partitioned between EtOAc and water. The organic layer was dried over Na2SO4. Evaporation gave la as a yellow oil (46 g, 0.238 mmol). MS (C\) m/z 194.0 (MH+).

Step IB: Preparation of N-|2-fluoro-6-(trifluoromethyl)benzyl|urea lb To 2-fluoro-6-(trifluoromethyl)benzylamine la (51.5 g, 0.267 mmol) in a flask, urea (64 g, 1.07 mmol), HC1 (cone, 30.9 mmol, 0.374 mmol) and water (111 mL) were added. The mixture was refluxed for 6 hours. The mixture was cooled to ambient temperature, further cooled with ice and filtered to give a yellow solid. Recrystallization with 400 mL of EtOAc gave lb as a white solid (46.2 g, 0J96 mmol). MS (CI) m/z 237.0 (MH+).

Step 1C: Preparation of l-[2-fluoro-6-(trifluoromethyl)benzyl]-6- methylpyrimidine-2.4(lH.3H)-dione lc Nal (43.9 g, 293 mmol) was added to N-[2-fluoro-6- (trifluoromethyl)benzyl]urea lb (46.2 g, 19.6 mmol) in 365 mL of acetonitrile. The resulting mixture was cooled in an ice-water bath. Diketene (22.5 mL, 293 mmol) was added slowly via dropping funnel followed by addition of TMSCl (37.2 mL, 293 mmol) in the same manner. The resulting yellow suspension was allowed to warm to room temperature slowly and was stirred for 20 hours. LC-MS showed the disappearance of starting material. To the yellow mixture 525 mL of water was added and stirred overnight. After another 20 hours stirring, the precipitate was filtered via Buchnner funnel and the yellow solid was washed with water and EtOAc to give lc as a white solid (48.5 g, 16 mmol). 1H ΝMR (CDC13) δ 2.15 (s, 3Η), 5.37 (s, 2H), 5.60 (s, 1H), 7.23-7.56 (m, 3H), 9.02 (s, 1H); MS (CI) m/z 303.0 (MH+).

Step ID: Preparation of 5-bromo-l -[2-fluoro-6-(trifluoromethyl)benzyl|-6- methylpyrimidine-2.4(lH.3H)-dione Id Bromine (16.5 mL, 0.32 mmol) was added to l-[2-fluoro-6-

(trifluoromethyl)benzyl]-6-methylpyrimidine-2,4(lHJH)-dione lc (48.5 g, 0J6 mol) in 145 mL of acetic acid. The resulting mixture became clear then formed precipitate within an hour. After 2 hours stirring, the yellow solid was filtered and washed with cold EtOAc to an almost white solid. The filtrate was washed with sat. ΝaΗCO3 and dried over Na2SO4. Evaporation gave a yellow solid which was washed with EtOAC to give a light yellow solid. The two solids were combined to give 59.4 g of Id (0J56 mol) total.

Abstract Image

The discovery of novel uracil phenylethylamines bearing a butyric acid as potent human gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (hGnRH-R) antagonists is described. A major focus of this optimization was to improve the CYP3A4 inhibition liability of these uracils while maintaining their GnRH-R potency. R-4-{2-[5-(2-Fluoro-3-methoxyphenyl)-3-(2-fluoro-6-[trifluoromethyl]benzyl)-4-methyl-2,6-dioxo-3,6-dihydro-2H-pyrimidin-1-yl]-1-phenylethylamino}butyric acid sodium salt, 10b (elagolix), was identified as a potent and selective hGnRH-R antagonist. Oral administration of 10b suppressed luteinizing hormone in castrated macaques. These efforts led to the identification of 10b as a clinical compound for the treatment of endometriosis.

“Elagolix” refers to 4-((R)-2-[5-(2-fluoro-3-methoxy-phenyl)-3-(2- fluoro-6 rifluoromethyl-benzyl)-4-methyl-2,6-dioxo-3,6-dihydro-2H-pyrimidin-l-yl]-l- phenyl-ethylamino)-butyric acid or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof. Elagolix is an orally active, non-peptide GnRH antagonist and is unlike other GnRH agonists and injectable (peptide) GnRH antagonists. Elagolix produces a dose dependent suppression of pituitary and ovarian hormones in women. Methods of making Elagolix and a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof are described in WO 2005/007165, the contents of which are herein incorporated by reference.
