Netarsudil dimesylate is a light yellow-to-white powder that is freely soluble in water, soluble in methanol, sparingly soluble in dimethyl formamide, and practically insoluble in dichloromethane and heptane.

Netarsudil ophthalmic solution 0.02% is supplied as a sterile, isotonic, buffered aqueous solution of netarsudil dimesylate with a pH of approximately 5 and an osmolality of approximately 295 mOsmol/kg. It is intended for topical application in the eye. Each mL of netarsudil contains 0.2 mg of netarsudil (equivalent to 0.28 mg of netarsudil dimesylate). Benzalkonium chloride, 0.015%, is added as a preservative. The inactive ingredients are: boric acid, mannitol, sodium hydroxide to adjust pH, and water for injection

Netarsudil, also known as AR-11324, is a Rho-associated protein kinase inhibitor. Netarsudil is potential useful for treating glaucoma and/or reducing intraocular pressure. Netarsudil Increases Outflow Facility in Human Eyes Through Multiple Mechanisms. Netarsudil inhibited kinases ROCK1 and ROCK2 with a Ki of 1 nM each, disrupted actin stress fibers and focal adhesions in TM cells with IC50s of 79 and 16 nM, respectively, and blocked the profibrotic effects of TGF-β2 in HTM cells. Netarsudil produced large reductions in IOP in rabbits and monkeys that were sustained for at least 24 h after once daily dosing, with transient, mild hyperemia observed as the only adverse effect.

Netarsudil (trade name Rhopressa) is a drug for the treatment of glaucoma. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administrationhas approved a 0.02% ophthalmic solution for the lowering of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.[1]

Rho-associated protein kinase (ROCK) is a kinase belonging to the AGC (PKA/ PKG/PKC) family of serine-threonine kinases. It is involved mainly in regulating the shape and movement of cells by acting on the cytoskeleton. ROCK signaling plays an important role in many diseases including diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson´s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, pulmonary hypertension and cancer. It has been shown to be involved in causing tissue thickening and stiffening around tumours in a mouse model of skin cancer, principally by increasing the amount of collagen in the tissue around the tumour.

Synthesis of Compound 12

Figure CN107434780AD00153

[0091] The 2,4-dimethyl benzoic acid (1.5g, IOmmol) and a catalytic amount of DMF was added to the toluene and cooled to 2-5 ° C, was added dropwise oxalyl chloride (I.64g, 13_〇1 ), warmed to room temperature after dropwise, stirred overnight, during which a solid gradually dissolved to give a clear solution, evaporated to dryness under reduced pressure to give a yellow oil with dichloromethane (IOml) was dissolved in dichloromethane to give the acid chloride ;

[0092] Compound 11 (3.2g, 7.7mmo 1) and triethylamine (2ml) were added 20ml of dichloromethane, nitrogen, the above prepared acid chloride solution in dichloromethane dropwise at 0-5 ° C the increases after mixing, overnight; TLC (dichloromethane: methanol = 20: 1) to monitor the reaction, completion of the reaction, evaporated to dryness under reduced pressure, and then stirred with saturated sodium carbonate solution, filtered, the filter cake was washed with water 3 times, dried to give 3.9g white solid, i.e. compound 12; purity: 991%, optical purity: 100% (CHIRALPAK AS-H, 0.46cm IDX15cm L, Me0H + 0.1DEA) / C02 = 20/80 (V / V, 2.0ml / min), R-type, Rt = 3 · 253min; S type Rt = 4.3min).

Compound 12 (3.9g) in DCM was added, with stirring to obtain clear solution, was then added dropwise I, a solution of hydrogen chloride in dioxane 15ml 4_ (concentration 4mol / L, 4mol HCl gas dissolved in two IL oxygen six ring), and then stirred for 4 hours at room temperature, rotary evaporated under reduced pressure, and filtered to give 3.65g product as a white solid, was obtained HNMR detectable substance is the AR-13324 hydrochloride, which IHNMR spectrum Referring to FIG. 1 , MS, purity, 99.4%, lHNMR (400MHz, DMS0,300) S (Ppm) c3Il .773 (s, 1H), 9.702 (s, lH), 8.740 (d, lH), 8.560 (d, 1H), 8.469 (d, 1H), 8.360 (d, 1H), 8.280 (s, 3H), 8.158 (dd, lH), 7.777 (d, lH), 7.577 (d, 2H), 7.496 (d, 2H), 7.134 (s, lH), 7.111 (d, lH), 5.281 (s, 2H), 4.504 (q, lH), 3.609 (q, lH), 3.139 (q, lH), 2.483 (s, 3H), 2.302 ( s, 3H).

Example 2

[0097] In this embodiment, the same processing steps except that Compound 12, the other the same as in Example 1.

[0098] Compound 12 processing steps are as follows: The compound is dissolved in 12 (3.9g) 40ml of dichloromethane, followed by dropwise addition of methanesulfonic acid (2g, 21.6mmol), stirred at room temperature overnight, rotary evaporated under reduced pressure, IOOml diethyl ether was added thereto, followed by stirring, a large amount of white solid was filtered, dried to give a white solid (4.54 g of), yield 97.8%, purity 98.2%, the resulting substance was detected IHNMR AR-13324 is the mesylate salt.
