Lenacapavir, sold under the brand name Sunlenca, is a medication used to treat HIV/AIDS.[1] It is taken by mouth or by subcutaneous injection.[1]

The most common side effects include reactions at the injection site and nausea.[1]

Lenacapavir was approved for medical use in the European Union in August 2022.[1]

HIV/AIDS remains an area of concern despite the introduction of numerous successful therapies, mainly due to the emergence of multidrug resistance and patient difficulty in adhering to treatment regimens.1,2 Lenacapavir is a first-in-class capsid inhibitor that demonstrates picomolar HIV-1 inhibition as a monotherapy in vitro, little to no cross-resistance with existing antiretroviral agents, and extended pharmacokinetics with subcutaneous dosing.1,2,3,5

Lenacapavir was first globally approved by the European Commission to treat adults with multi-drug resistant HIV infection.7 It is currently being investigated in clinical trials in the US.

U.S. Patent Application No. 15/680,041 discloses novel compounds useful for treating a Retroviridae viral infection, including an infection caused by the HIV virus. One specific compound identified therein is a compound of formula I:

[00566] Compound XIII (.0 g) was dissolved in THF (4.2 mL) and was cooled over an ice bath. Diphenylphosphoryl azide (0.66 mL, 1.2 equiv.) was added followed by DBU (0.46 mL, 1.2 equiv.) over about 25 min at below about 4 °C. The dark mixture was aged about 1 hour, and the cooling bath was removed. After about 2.5 hours age at RT, some starting material was still present so more diphenylphosphoryl azide (0.15 equiv.) and DBU (0.15 equiv.) were added after cooling over an ice bath. After about 2 hours, more diphenylphosphoryl azide (0.08 equiv.) and DBU (0.08 equiv.) were added. The reaction mixture was allowed to age overnight for about 16 h to allow the conversion to azide intermediate complete. The reaction mixture was cooled over an ice bath and triphenylphosphine (1.0 g, 1.5 equiv.) was added over about 15 min at about 6 °C). The cooling bath was removed after about 10 min and the reaction mixture was agitated for additional about 2.5 hours.

The mixture was diluted with EtOAc (5.0 mL) and was washed with water (4.2 mL + 2.0 mL). The aqueous layer was back extracted with EtOAc (4.0 mL) and the EtOAc layer was washed with water (1.0 mL). The organic layers were combined, concentrated via rotary evaporation and evaporated with EtOAc (4 x 4.0 mL) to dry. The residue was dissolved to a 50 ml solution in EtOAc, and cooled over an ice bath to become slurry. To the cold slurry 4N HCl/dioxane (0.76 mL, 1.2 equiv.) was added and the slurry was aged about 2 hours at room temperature. The solid product was filtered and the filter cake was rinsed with EtOAc and dried at about 35 to 50 °C under vacuum to give X-02.

[00631] Alternatively, a premixed solution of acetic acid (1.5 g), ethanol (12 g), and water (0.3 g) were combined with Compound I-02 at 20 °C and were agitated until dissolved. The resultant solution was transferred to a reactor containing water (100 g) over about 30 minutes. The resultant slurry was further agitated for about one hour, and was filtered. The wet cake was washed with water (2 x 25 g), deliquored, and dried at about 60 °C under vacuum to provide I.

[00632] A reactor was charged with III (1.0 g) followed by cyclopentyl methyl ether (2.0 mL). The contents were adjusted to about 80 °C. In a separate reactor, methanesulfonic acid anhydride (0.3g, 1.5 equiv.) was dissolved in cyclopentyl methyl ether (6 mL). The solution was added to the first reactor via a syringe pump over 5 h. Following addition, the reaction mixture was aged for 16 h. The reaction mixture was quenched with water (10 mL). UPLC analysis of the organic phase showed I with 94.8% purity.

[00633] To a 40 mL vial was added IV (1 .00 g), potassium bicarbonate (420 mg), palladium(II) chloride (4.9 mg, 2.0 mol%), cyclohexyl diphenylphosphine (13.4 mg, 3.6 mol%), V-03 (849 mg), 2-methyltetrahydrofuran (8.0 mL) and water (2.0 mL). The vial was inerted and the mixture was agitated at about 68 °C (65-73 °C) until the reaction was complete. The mixture was cooled to about 40 °C and the aqueous layer was removed. The organic layer was washed with aqueous acetic acid (5% w/v, 5.1 g). The organic was then concentrated to dryness and the residue was purified by column chromatography to afford I. 1H NMR (400 MHz, DMSO-d6) δ 10.12 (s, 0.2H), 10.00 (s, 1H), 9.25 (d, J = 8.2 Hz, 1H), 8.92 (d, J = 8.6 Hz, 0H),

History

Lenacapavir is being developed by Gilead Sciences.[2]

As of 2021, it is in phase II/III clinical trials.[3] It is being investigated as a treatment for HIV patients infected with multidrug-resistant virus and as a twice-yearly injectable for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).[3][4]

Society and culture

Legal status

On 23 June 2022, the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) adopted a positive opinion, recommending the granting of a marketing authorization for the medicinal product Sunlenca, intended for the treatment of adults with multidrug‑resistant human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV‑1) infection.[5] The applicant for this medicinal product is Gilead Sciences Ireland UC.[5] Lenacapavir was approved for medical use in the European Union in August 2022.[1]
