атабецестат [Russian] [INN]
Atabecestat is a beta-secretase inhibitor drug candidate.
Presented by: Yuji Koriyama, associate director at Shionogi & Co.
Target: β-site amyloid presursor protein cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1), an enzyme whose buildup is implicated in Alzheimer’s disease
Disease: Alzheimer’s disease
Reporter’s notes: Presented by Koriyama, who told the audience he was attending the ACS National Meeting for the first time, JNJ-5486911 joins dozens of clinical candidates from many companies in Phase II and III trials to treat Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers started with a hit that inhibited BACE1 with approximately 2,600 nM affinity and advanced the program until finally reaching a compound with roughly 1 nM affinity. The compound is being jointly developed by Shionogi & Co. and Janssen Pharmaceuticals.

Preparation of Compound 15
Compound 12 (3.0 g, 20.3 mmol) was dissolved in N-methylpyrrolidone (18 mL), and the solution was cooled to 5°C. Thionyl chloride (3.1 g, 26.1 mmol) was added to obtain a solution of Compound 13.
To a suspension of Compound 11 (5.0 g, 16.8 mmol) in ethyl acetate (50 mL) were added sodium bicarbonate (3.5 g, 42.0 mmol) and water (50 mL), and the mixture was stirred for 5 min at 20°C.
The layers were separated, and the organic layer was concentrated to 10 g under reduced pressure. N-Methylpyrrolidone (5 mL) and 35% hydrochloric acid (0.9 g) were added, and the mixture was cooled to 3°C. The solution of Compound 13 and N-methylpyrrolidone (1.5 mL) were added to obtain a solution of Compound 15.
The solution of Compound 15 was added to a mixture of water (15 mL) and ethyl acetate (10 mL). After stirring the mixture for 1 hour, triethylamine (14.8 g, 14.6 mmol), N-methylpyrrolidone (1.5 mL) and water (5 mL) were added and further stirred for 1 hour. Water (45 mL) was added, and the mixture was stirred for 1 hour, filtered and dried to obtain crystals of Compound 15 (Crystalline Form I, 5.71 g, 92.4%).
1H-NMR (CDCl3) δ: 1.71 (3H, s), 4.06 (3H, s), 6.29 (2H, d, J = 2.4 Hz), 7.07 (1H, dd, J = 11.3, 8.8 Hz), 7.65 (2H, dd, J = 6.8, 2.8 Hz), 7.86 (1H, ddd, J = 8.8, 4.1, 2.8 Hz), 8.19 (1H, dd, J = 8.1, 2.0 Hz), 8.43 (1H, d, J = 8.1 Hz), 8.89 (1H, d, J = 2.0 Hz), 9.81 (1H, s).
[α]D -11.8±1.0° (DMSO, 23°C, c=0.518)
To a suspension of Compound 11 (1831 g, 6.2 mol) in ethyl acetate (18L) were added sodium bicarbonate (1293 g, 15.4 mol) and water (18L), and the mixture was stirred for 5 min at 20°C. The layers were separated, and the organic layer was concentrated to 3.8 kg under reduced pressure to obtain a concentrated solution of Compound 14.
Compound 12 (912 g, 6.2 mol) was dissolved in N-methylpyrrolidone (64L), and the solution was cooled to 4°C. Thionyl chloride (951 g, 8.0 mol) was added, and the mixture was stirred for 30 min. The concentrated solution of Compound 14 was added to obtain a solution of Compound 15.
The solution of Compound 15 and N-methylpyrrolidone (1.6 L) were added to water (18 L), and the mixture was stirred for 40 min at 25°C. 24% sodium hydroxide in water (5 kg), sodium bicarbonate (259 g, 3.1 mmol) and water (2.7 L) were added to the mixture.
