Anamorelin is a non-peptidic ghrelin mimetic
Treatment of cancer anorexia and cancer cachexia

Anamorelin hydrochloride has been submitted New Drug Application (NDA) for the treatment of cachexia in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients.

It was originally developed by Novo Nordisk, then it was licensed to Ono and Helsinn Therapeutics for the treatment of cachexia and anorexia in cancer patients.

Anamorelin hydrochloride has been submitted New Drug Application (NDA) for the treatment of cachexia in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients.

It was originally developed by Novo Nordisk, then it was licensed to Ono and Helsinn Therapeutics for the treatment of cachexia and anorexia in cancer patients.

Company:Novo Nordisk (Originator) , Helsinn,Ono

Anamorelin (INN) (developmental code names ONO-7643RC-1291ST-1291), also known as anamorelin hydrochloride (USANJAN), is a non-peptideorally-activecentrally-penetrant, selective agonist of the ghrelin/growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHSR) with appetite-enhancing and anabolic effects which is under development by Helsinn Healthcare SA for the treatment of cancer cachexia and anorexia.[2][3][4]

Anamorelin significantly increases plasma levels of growth hormone (GH), insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), and insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 3 (IGFBP-3) in humans, without affecting plasma levels of prolactincortisolinsulinglucoseadrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), or thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).[3][5] In addition, anamorelin significantly increases appetite, overall body weightlean body mass, and muscle strength,[4][5] with increases in body weight correlating directly with increases in plasma IGF-1 levels.[3]

As of February 2016, anamorelin has completed phase III clinical trials for the treatment of cancer cachexia and anorexia associated with non-small-cell lung carcinoma.[6][7]

On 18 May 2017, the European Medicines Agency recommended the refusal of the marketing authorisation for the medicinal product, intended for the treatment of anorexia, cachexia or unintended weight loss in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. Helsinn requested a re-examination of the initial opinion. After considering the grounds for this request, the European Medicines Agency re-examined the opinion, and confirmed the refusal of the marketing authorisation on 14 September 2017.[8] The European Medicines Agency concluded that the studies show a marginal effect of anamorelin on lean body mass and no proven effect on hand grip strength or patients’ quality of life. In addition, following an inspection at clinical study sites, the agency considered that the safety data on the medicine had not been recorded adequately. Therefore, the agency was of the opinion that the benefits of anamorelin did not outweigh its risks.[9]

The chemical name of anamorelin hydrochloride is 2-Amino-N-((R)-1-((R)-3-benzyl-3-(1,2,2-trimethylhydrazine-1-carbonyl)piperidin-1-yl)-3-(1H-indol-3-yl)-1-oxopropan-2-yl)-2-methylpropanamide hydrochloride corresponding to the molecular formula C31H42N6O3•HCl and has a relative molecular mass 583.16 g/mol and has the following structure:

str1

The structure of the active substance was elucidated by a combination of 1 H-NMR, 13C-NMR, elemental analysis, FT-IR, UV and and mass spectrometry. Anamorelin HCl appears as a white to off-white hygroscopic solid, freely soluble in water, methanol and ethanol, sparingly soluble in acetonitrile and practically insoluble in ethyl acetate, isopropyl acetate and n-heptane. Its pka was found to be 7.79 and the partition coefficient 2.98. It has two chiral centres with the R,R absolute configuration, which is controlled in the active substance specification by chiral HPLC. Based on the presented data, neither anamorelin hydrochloride, nor any of its salts have been previously authorised in medicinal products in the European Union. Anamorelin is therefore considered as a new active substance.

Growth hormone is a major participant in the control of several complex physiologic processes, including growth and metabolism. Growth hormone is known to have a number of effects on metabolic processes, e.g., stimulation of protein synthesis and free fatty acid mobilization and to cause a switch in energy metabolism from carbohydrate to fatty acid metabolism. Deficiency in growth hormone can result in a number of severe medical disorders, e.g., dwarfism.
      The release of growth hormone from the pituitary is controlled, directly or indirectly, by number of hormones and neurotransmitters. Growth hormone release can be stimulated by growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) and inhibited by somatostatin. In both cases the hormones are released from the hypothalamus but their action is mediated primarily via specific receptors located in the pituitary. Other compounds which stimulate the release of growth hormone from the pituitary have also been described. For example, arginine, L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (1-Dopa), glucagon, vasopressin, PACAP (pituitary adenylyl cyclase activating peptide), muscarinic receptor agonists and a synthetic hexapeptide, GHRP (growth hormone releasing peptide) release endogenous growth hormone either by a direct effect on the pituitary or by affecting the release of GHRH and/or somatostatin from the hypothalamus.
      The use of certain compounds for increasing the levels of growth hormone in mammals has previously been proposed. For example, U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,303,620 and 6,576,648 (the entire contents of which are incorporated herein by reference), disclose a compound: (3R)-1-(2-methylalanyl-D-tryptophyl)-3-(phenylmethyl)-3-piperidinecarboxylic acid 1,2,2-trimethylhydrazide, having the following chemical structure:

 (MOL) (CDX) which acts directly on the pituitary cells under normal experimental conditions in vitro to release growth hormone therefrom. This compound is also known under the generic name “anamorelin.” This growth hormone releasing compound can be utilized in vitro as a unique research tool for understanding, inter alia, how growth hormone secretion is regulated at the pituitary level. Moreover, this growth hormone releasing compound can also be administered in vivo to a mammal to increase endogenous growth hormone release.

Cancer cachexia is a state of consumption in which patients lose a lot of weight and muscle mass. It is necessary for the treatment of cachexia because it weakens the patient, affects the quality of life and interferes with the patient’s treatment plan. The drug alamorelin produces the same effect as the so-called “starved hormone” ghrelin, which stimulates hunger. Alamolin is a mimetic of ghrelin, which is secreted by the stomach and is a ligand for growth hormone receptors. . Alamolin binds to this receptor, causing the release of growth hormone, causing a metabolic cascade that affects a variety of different factors, including fat-removing body weight, as well as blood sugar metabolism. Therefore, alamorelin can also enhance the appetite of patients and help patients stay healthy. The 2014 European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) in Madrid, Spain, announced that Alamolin is expected to be the first drug in history to effectively improve cancer cachexia.Alamolin is a drug developed by Helsinn Therapeutics (Switzerland) from Novo Nordisk for the development of a cachexia and anorexia for patients with cancer, including non-small cell lung cancer. It can also be used to treat hip fractures and preventive diseases. The strength of the elderly and the elderly has continued to decline. In two key, 12-week Phase III clinical trials (ROMANA 1, ROMANA 2), alamorelin can significantly increase the body fat loss, and is generally tolerated; the incidence of serious adverse drug reactions is less than 3%, mainly related to hyperglycemia and diabetes. Compared with the placebo group, alamorelin continued to increase body weight and improve cancer anorexia-cachexia-related symptoms and concerns; however, there was no significant difference in the improvement of grip strength between the alamolin group and the placebo group. Therefore, this product has excellent clinical value and market value.The polymorphic form of the drug free base and its preparation are reported as follows:Synthesis of (3R)-1-(2-methylalanyl-D-tryptophyl)-3-benzyl-3-piperidine 1,2,2-trimethylmethyl is disclosed in the patent ZL99806010.0 A method for synthesizing hydrazide, and using [(1R)-2-[(3R)-3-benzyl-3-(N,N’,N’-trimethylmethylcarbonyl)piperidin-1-yl tert-Butyl ester of 1-((1H-indol-3-yl)methyl)-2-oxoethyl]carbamate is dissolved in dichloromethane, then trifluoroacetic acid is added to remove tert-butyl formate After the base, the mixture was concentrated to remove the solvent, and then the product was extracted with dichloromethane, and the obtained extract was concentrated to dryness to give (3R)-1-(2-methylalanyl-D-color ammonia as an amorphous powder.

The rapid process development of a scaleable synthesis of the pseudotripeptide RC-1291 for preclinical and clinical evaluation is described. By employing a nontraditional N-to-C coupling strategy, the peptide chain of RC-1291 was assembled in high yield, with minimal racemization and in an economical manner by introducing the most expensive component last. A one-pot deprotection/crystallization procedure was developed for the isolation of RC-1291 free base, which afforded the target compound in excellent yield and with a purity of >99.5% without chromatographic purification.

(R,R)-2-Amino-N-[2-[3-benzyl-3-(N,N′,N′-trimethyl-hydrazinocarbonyl)piperidin-1-yl]-1-(1H-indol-3-ylmethyl)- 2-oxo-ethyl]-2-methyl-propionamide (1). Crude 7 (911 g; 1.28 mol theoretical)10 was dissolved in methanol (4.12 L) in a 22-L round-bottom flask equipped with a mechanical stirrer, a temperature probe, a reflux condenser, a gas (N2) inlet, and an addition funnel. The solution was heated to 55 °C; then methanesulfonic acid (269.5 g, 2.805 mol) was added over a period of 15 min. (Caution: gas evolution!) The solution was then heated to 60 °C for a period of 1 h, after which HPLC analysis showed that no 7 remained. The temperature of the reaction mixture was increased to reflux (68-72 °C) over a period of 35 min, while simultaneously adding a solution of KOH (85%, 210.4 g, 3.187 mol) in water (4.12 L). The clear, slightly yellow solution was then allowed to cool to 20 °C at a rate of 5 °C/h. The free base of RC1291 (1) crystallized as a pale-yellow solid, which was isolated by filtration. The filter cake was washed with two portions of 50% aqueous methanol (500 mL each) and then dried under high vacuum at 20 ( 5 °C to afford 1 as an off-white, crystalline solid (595 g, 85% yield for two steps, >99.5% AUC by HPLC).

Cachexia and muscle wasting are very common among patients suffering from cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other chronic diseases. Ghrelin stimulates growth hormone secretion via the ghrelin receptor, which subsequently leads to increase of IGF-1 plasma levels. The activation of the GH/IGF-1 axis leads to an increase of muscle mass and functional capacity. Ghrelin further acts on inflammation, appetite, and adipogenesis and for this reason was considered an important target to address catabolic conditions. We report the synthesis and properties of an indane based series of ghrelin receptor full agonists; they have been shown to generate a sustained increase of IGF-1 levels in dog and have been thoroughly investigated with respect to their functional activity.

https://patents.google.com/patent/EP2838892A1/enGrowth hormone is a major participant in the control of several complex physiologic processes including growth and metabolism. Growth hormone is known to have a number of effects on metabolic processes such as stimulating protein synthesis and mobilizing free fatty acids, and causing a switch in energy metabolism from carbohydrate to fatty acid metabolism. Deficiencies in growth hormone can result in dwarfism and other severe medical disorders.The release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland is controlled directly and indirectly by a number of hormones and neurotransmitters. Growth hormone release can be stimulated by growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) and inhibited by somatostatin.The use of certain compounds to increase levels of growth hormone in mammals has previously been proposed. Anamorelin is one such compound. Anamorelin is a synthetic orally active compound originally synthesized in the 1990s as a growth hormone secretogogue for the treatment of cancer related cachexia. The free base of anamorelin is chemically defined as:® (3R) 1 -(2-methylaIanyl~D ryptophyl)~3-(phenylraethyl)~3~piperidineearboxylie acid 1 ,2,2trimethyihydrazide,* 3-{(2R)-3-{(3R)-3-benzyi-3-| (trimethylhydrazino)carbonyi]piperidin-l»yl}-2-[(2»met hylaianyl)amino]-3-ox.opropyi}-IH-indole, or• 2-Amino-N-[(lR)-2-[(3R)-3~benzyWcarbony piperidin- 1 -yl] – 1-( 1 H-indol-3 -yl^^and has the below chemical structure; 
U.S. Patent No. 6,576,648 to Artkerson reports a process of preparing anamorelin as the fumarate salt, with the hydrochloride salt produced as an intermediate in Step (j) of Example 1 . U.S. Patent No. 7,825, 138 to Lorimer describes a process for preparing crystal forms of the free base of anamorelin.There is a need to develop anamorelin monohydrochloride as an active pharmaceutical ingredient with reduced impurities and improved stability over prior art forms of anamorelin hydrochloride, such as those described in U.S. Patent No, 6,576,648, having good solubility, bioavailability and processabi!ity. There is also a need to develop methods of producing pharmaceutically acceptable forms of anamorelin monohydrochloride thai have improved yield over prior art processes, reduced residual solvents, and controlled distribution of chloride content,it has unexpectedly been discovered that the process of making the hydrochloride salt of anamorelin described in Step (j) of U.S. Patent No. 6.576,648 can result in excessive levels of chloride in the final product, and that this excess chloride leads to the long-term instability of the final product due at least, partially to an increase in the amount of the less stable dihydrochloride salt of anamorelin. Conversely, because anamorelin free base is less soluble in water than the hydrochloride salt, deficient chloride content in the final product can lead to decreased solubility of the molecule. The process described in U.S. Patent No, 6,576,648 also yields a final product that contains more than 5000 ppm (0.5%) of residual solvents, which renders the product less desirable from a pharmaceutical standpoint, as described in CH Harmonized Tripartite Guideline. See Impurities; Guideline for residual solvents Q3C(R3). in order to overcome these problems, methods have been developed which, for the first time, allow for the efficient and precise control of the reaction between anarnorehn tree base and hydrochloric acid in situ, thereby increasing the yield of anarnorehn monohydrochioride from the reaction and reducing the incidence of unwanted anamorelin dihydroeh ride. According to the method, the free base of anamorelin is dissolved in an organic solvent and combined with water and hydrochloric acid, with the molar ratio of anarnorehn and chloride tightly controlled to prevent an excess of chloride in the final product. The water and hydrochloric acid can be added either sequentially or at the same time as long as two separate phases are formed. Without wishing to be bound by any theory, it is believed thai as the anamorelin free base in the organic phase is protonated by the hydrochloric acid it migrates into the aqueous phase. The controlled ratio of anamorelin free base and hydrochloric acid and homogenous distribution in the aqueous phase allows for the controlled formation of the monohydrochioride salt over the dihydrochloride, and the controlled distribution of the resulting chloride levels within individual batches and among multiple batches of anamorelin monohydrochioride.Thus, in a fust embodiment the invention provides methods for preparing anamorelin monohydrochioride or a composition comprising anamorelin monohydrochioride comprising: (a) dissolving anamorelin free base in an organic solvent to form a solution; (b) mixing said solution with water and hydrochloric acid for a time sufficient to: (i) react said anamorelin free base with said hydrochloric acid, and (ii) form an organic phase and an aqueous phase; (c) separating the aqueous phase from the organic phase; and (d) isolating anamorelin monohydrochioride from the aqueous phase.In a particularly preferred embodiment, the molar ratio of anamorelin to hydrochloric acid used in the process is less than or equal to 1 : 1 , so as to reduce the production of anamorelin dihydrochloride and other unwanted chemical species. Thus, for example, hydrochloric acid can be added at a molar ratio of from 0,90 to 1 ,0 relative to said anamorelin, from 0.90 to 0.99, or from 0.93 to 0.97.n another particularly preferred embodiment, the anamorelin monohydrochioride or a composition comprising anamorelin monohydrochioride is isolated from the aqueous phase via spray drying, preferably preceded by distillation. This technique has proven especially useful in the manufacture of anamorelin monohydrochioride or a composition comprising anamorelin monohydrochioride because of the excellent reduction in solvent levels observed, and the production of a stable amorphous form of anamorelin monohydrochioride or a composition comprising anamorelin monohydrochioride. In other embodiments, the invention relates to the various forms of anamorelin monohvdrochloride and compositions comprising anamorelin monohvdrochloride produced by the methods of the present invention. In a first embodiment, which derives from the controlled chloride content among batches accomplished by the present methods, the invention provides anamorelin monohvdrochloride or a composition comprising anamorelin monohydrochloride having an inter-batch chloride content of from 5.8 to 6.2%, preferably from 5.8 to less than 6.2%. Alternatively, the invention provides anamorelin monohydrochloride or a composition comprising anamorelin monohydrochloride having a molar ratio of chloride to anamorelin less than or equal to 1 : 1 , such as from 0.9 to 1.0 or 0.99, in yet another embodiment the invention provides an amorphous form of anamorelin monohydrochloride or a composition comprising anamorelin monohydrochloride. Further descriptions of the anamorelin monohydrochloride and compositions comprising the anamorelin monohydrochloride are given in the detailed description which follows.EXAMPLE 1 . PREPARATION OF ANAMOREUN HYDROCHLORIDEVarious methods have been developed to prepare the hydrochloric acid salt of anarnorelin, with differing results.In a first method, which is the preferred method of the present invention, anarnorelin free base was carefully measured and dissolved in isopropyl acetate. Anarnorelin free base was prepared according to known method (e.g., U.S. Patent No, 6,576,648). A fixed volume of HCl in water containing various molar ratios (0.80, 0,95, 1.00 or 1.05) of HCl relative to the anarnorelin free base was then combined with the anamorelin/isopropyl acetate solution, to form a mixture having an organic and an aqueous phase, The aqueous phase of the mixture was separated from the organic phase and the resulting aqueous phase was concentrated by spray drying to obtain the batches of anarnorelin monohydrochloride (or a composition comprising anarnorelin monohydrochloride ) shown in Table 1 A.Approximately 150mg of the resulting spray dried sample of anarnorelin monohydrochloride (or composition comprising anarnorelin monohydrochloride) was accurately weighed out and dissolved in methanol (50mL). Acetic acid (5mL) and distilled water (5mL) were added to the mixture. The resulting mixture was potentiometricaJ ly titrated using 0,0 IN silver nitrate and the e dpoint was determined. A blank determination was also performed and correction was made, if necessary. The chloride content in the sample was calculated by the following formula. This measurement method of chloride content was performed without any cations other than proton (! !  ).Chloride content (%) = VxNx35.453x l 00x l 00/{Wx[1 00-(water content (%))-(residual solvent (%))]}V: volume at the endpoint (ml.)N; actual normality of 0.01 mol/L silver nitrate35.453 : atomic weight of ChlorineW: weight of sample (mg)TABLE 1 AHCl Chloride ContentThis data showed that anamorelin monohydrochlonde produced by a fixed volume of HCl in water containing 0.80 or 1 .05 molar equivalents of HC1 relative to anamorelin free base had levels of chloride thai were undesirable, and associated with product instability as shown in Example 3.Alternatively, a fixed volume of HCl in water containing 0.95 moles of HCl relative to anamorelin free base was used to prepare anamorelin monohydrochlonde (or composition comprising anamorelin monohydrochloride) as follows. Anamorelin free base (18.8g, 34.4mmoi) and isopropyl acetate (341.8g) were mixed in a 1000 mL flask. The mixture was heated at 40±5°C to confirm dissolution of the crystals and then cooled at 25±5°C. Distilled water (22.3g) and 3.6% diluted hydrochloric acid (33. Ig, 32.7mmoL 0.95 equivalents) were added into the flask and washed with distilled water. After 30 minutes stirring, the reaction was static for more than 15 minutes and the lower layer (aqueous layer) was transferred into a separate 250mL flask. Distilled water was added to the flask and concentrated under pressure at 50i5cC. The resulting aqueous solution was then filtered and product isolated by spray drying to afford anamorelin monohydrochlonde A (the present invention).The physical properties of anamorelin monohydrochloride A were compared to anamorelin monohydrochloride produced by a traditional comparative method (“anamorelin monohydrochloride B”) (comparative example). Anamorelin mono hydrochloride B in the comparative example was produced by bubbling HCl gas into isopropyl acetate to produce a 2M solution of HCl, and reacting 0.95 molar equivalents of the 2M HCl in isopropyl acetate with anamorelin free base. The physical properties of anamorelin monohydrochloride B are reported in Table IB. This data shows that when 0.95 equivalents of HCl is added to anamorelin free base, the chloride content (or amount of anamorelin dihydrochloride) is increased, even when a stoichiometric ratio of hydrochloride to anamorelin of less than 1 ,0 is used, possibly due to uncontrolled precipitation. In addition, this data shows that the concentration of residual solvents in anamorelin monohydrochloride B was greater than the concentration in anamorelin monohydrochloride A, TABLE I B 
A similar decrease in residual solvent concentration was observed when 2-methyltetrahydrofuran was used as the dissolving solvent for anamorelin free base instead of isopropvi acetate in the process for preparing spray dried anamorelin monohydrochloride A (data not reported).The residual solvent (organic volatile impurities) concentration (specifically isopropyl acetate) of anamorelin monohydrochloride in TABLE IB was measured using gas chromatography (GC-2010, Shimadzu Corporation) according to the conditions shown in TABLE 1 C,
