Novel crystalline forms of a renal outer medullary potassium channel inhibitor and their salts, preferably Form III, for treating hypertension or heart failure.

Strengthening the salt reabsorption of the kidneys can trigger a risk of high blood pressure. On the contrary, inhibiting the reabsorption function of the kidney can promote the excretion of urine and play a diuretic and antihypertensive effect. Common diuretics are thiazide diuretics, as the first-line antihypertensive drugs in the United States, mainly acting on Na + -Cl transport carriers; Loop diuretics are more effective in patients with impaired renal function, mainly through Na + -K + -2Cl  Transport proteins play a role. But both diuretics cause hypokalemia (symptoms: weakness, fatigue, muscle cramps, constipation and heart rhythm problems such as arrhythmia), increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality.
The renal outer medullary potassium channel (ROMK) is also called inward-rectifying potassium channel 1.1 (Kir1.1). Ion channels may ROMK thick ascending limb segment (the TAL) conductance through apical membrane of renal medullary loop, and of Na + -K + -2Cl  cotransporter NKCC2 (responsible for transport of NaCl) synergy regulation of Na + reabsorption. The study found that ROMK is directly associated with the secretory pathway of the kidney, knocking out the ROMK gene, missing the 35-pS ion channel and other TAL K + ion channels of mouse TAL and CCD . Batter syndrome is an autosomal recessive hereditary disease characterized by massive loss of salt in the kidneys, hypokalemia, and low blood pressure. Paramyelocytic hyperplasia is mainly caused by mutation of ROMK or Na + -K + -2Cl  cotransporter, except that hypokalemia caused by rotaside cell hyperplasia caused by ROMK mutation is better than Na + -K + – Parathyroid cell hyperplasia induced by 2Cl  cotransporter mutations is greatly alleviated. In summary, suppressing the function of ROMK can effectively inhibit Na without causing hypokalemia. + -K + -2Cl  The salt reabsorption function of transporters promotes the excretion of urine and acts as a diuretic and antihypertensive agent .
WO2016091042A1 (Publication Date 2016.06.16) discloses an extrarenal medullary secretory potassium channel (ROMK) inhibitor having the chemical name (R)-5-cyano-N-(1-(2-hydroxy-2-() 4-methyl-1-carbonyl-1,3-dihydroisobenzofuran-5-yl)ethyl)piperidin-4-yl)-4-methoxypyridinecarboxamide relative to other ROMK inhibitors The compound increases the polar group, reduces the ClogP on the basis of maintaining the activity of the ROMK inhibitor, improves the selectivity of hERG, and increases the safety, and the structure is as shown in formula (II):
The crystal structure of the pharmaceutically active ingredient often affects the chemical and physical stability of the drug, and the difference in crystallization conditions and storage conditions may cause changes in the crystal structure of the compound, sometimes accompanied by the formation of other forms of crystal form. In general, amorphous pharmaceutical products have no regular crystal structure and often have other defects, such as poor product stability, difficulty in filtration, easy agglomeration, and poor fluidity. Therefore, it is necessary to improve various aspects of the compound of the formula (II).

Small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) is a member of the ubiquitin-like protein (Ubl) family that is covalently conjugated to cellular proteins in a manner similar to Ub-conjugation (Kerscher, O., Felberbaum, R., and Hochstrasser, M. 2006. Modification of proteins by ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like proteins. Annu Rev Cell Dev Biol. 22: 159-80). Mammalian cells express three major isoforms: SUMO l , SUM02 and SUM03. SUM02 and SUM03 share -95% amino acid sequence homology but have -45% sequence homology with SUMO l (Kamitani, T., Kito, K., Nguyen, H. P., Fukuda-Kamitani, T., and Yeh, E. T. 1998. Characterization of a second member of the sentrin family of ubiquitin-like proteins. J Biol Chem. 273( 18): 1 1349-53). SUMO proteins can be conjugated to a single lysine residue of a protein (monosumoylation) or to a second SUMO protein that is already conjugated to a protein forming a SUMO chain (polysumoylation). Only SUM02/3 can form such chains because they possess internal consensus SUMO modification sites (Tatham, M. H., Jaffray, E., Vaughan, O. A., Desterro, J. M., Botting, C. H., Naismith, J. H., Hay, R. T. 2001. Polymeric chains of SUMO-2 and SUM 0-3 are conjugated to protein substrates by SAE1/SAE2 and Ubc9. J Biol Chem. 276(38):35368-74). An additional isoform, SUM04, is found in kidney, lymph node and spleen cells, but it is not known whether SUM04 can be conjugated to cellular proteins.

[0003] SUMO l , SUM02 and SUM03 are activated in an ATP-dependent manner by the SUMO-activating enzyme (SAE). SAE is a heterodimer that consists of SAE 1 (SUMO-activating enzyme subunit 1) and SAE2 (UBA2). SAE, like other El activating enzymes, uses ATP to adenylate the C-terminal glycine residue of SUMO. In a second step, a thioester intermediate is then formed between the C-terminal glycine of SUMO and a cysteine residue in SAE2. Next, SUMO is transferred from the El to the cysteine residue of the SUMO conjugating enzyme (E2), UBC9. Unlike the Ub pathway that contains many E2 enzymes, Ubc9 is currently the only known conjugating enzyme for SUMO and functions with SUMOl , SUM02 and SUM03 proteins. SUMO proteins are then conjugated to the target protein, either directly or in conjunction with an E3 ligase, through isopeptide bond formation with the epsilon amino group of a lysine side chain on a target protein. Several SUMO E3 ligases, including PIAS (protein inhibitor of activated signal transducer and activator of transcription protein) proteins and Ran-binding protein 2 (RanBP2), and polycomb 2 (Pc2), have been identified (Johnson, E. S., and Gupta, A. A. 2001. An E3-like factor that promotes SUMO conjugation to the yeast septins. Cell. 106(6):735-44; Pichler, A., Gast, A., Seeler, J. S., Dejean, A.; Melchior, F. 2002. The nucleoporin RanBP2 has SUMOl E3 ligase activity. Cell. 108(1): 109-20; Kagey, M. H., Melhuish, T. A., and Wotton, D. 2003. The polycomb protein Pc2 is a SUMO E3. Cell. 1 13(1): 127- 37). Once attached to cellular targets, SUMO modulates the function, subcellular localization, complex formation and/or stability of substrate proteins (Miiller, S., Hoege, C, Pyrowolakis, G., and Jentsch, S. 2001. SUMO, ubiquitin’s mysterious cousin. Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol. 2(3):202-10). SUMO- conjugation is reversible through the action of de-sumoylating enzymes called SENPs (Hay, R. T. 2007. SUMO-specific proteases: a twist in the tail. Trends Cell Biol. 17(8):370-6) and the SUMO proteins can then participate in additional conjugation cycles.

[0004] SAE-initiated SUMO-conjugation plays a major role in regulating diverse cellular processes, including cell cycle regulation, transcriptional regulation, cellular protein targeting, maintenance of genome integrity, chromosome segregation, and protein stability (Hay, R. T. 2005. SUMO: a history of modification. Mol Cell. 18( 1): 1 -12; Gill, G. 2004. SUMO and ubiquitin in the nucleus: different functions, similar mechanisms? Genes Dev. 18(17):2046-59). For example, SUMO- conjugation causes changes in the subcellular localization of RanGAPl by targeting it to the nuclear pore complex (Mahajan, R., Delphin, C., Guan, T., Gerace, L., and Melchior, F. 1997. A small ubiquitin-related polypeptide involved in targeting RanGAPl to nuclear pore complex protein RanBP2. Cell. 88(1):97- 1070). Sumoylation counteracts ubiquitination and subsequently blocks the degradation of Ι Β, thereby negatively regulating NF-κΒ activation (Desterro, J. M., Rodriguez, M. S., Hay, R. T. 1998. SUMO- 1 modification of IkappaB alpha inhibits NF-kappaB activation. Mol Cell. 2(2):233-9). Sumoylation has been reported to play an important role in transcription exhibiting both repressive and stimulatory effects. Many of the transcriptional nodes that are modulated play important roles in cancer. For example, sumoylation stimulates the transcriptional activities of transcription factors such as p53 and HSF2 (Rodriguez, M. S., Desterro, J. M., Lain, S., Midgley, C. A., Lane, D. P., and Hay, R. T. 1999. SUMO- 1 modification activates the transcriptional response of p53. EMBO J. 18(22):6455-61 ; Goodson, M. L., Hong, Y., Rogers, R., Matunis, M. J., Park-Sarge, O. K., Sarge, K. D. 2001. Sumo- 1 modification regulates the DNA binding activity of heat shock transcription factor 2, a promyelocytic leukemia nuclear body associated transcription factor. J Biol Chem. 276(21 ): 18513-8). In contrast, SUMO-conjugation represses the transcriptional activities of transcription factors such as LEF (Sachdev, S., Bruhn, L., Sieber, H., Pichler, A., Melchior, F., Grosschedl, R. 2001. PIASy, a nuclear matrix-associated SUMO E3 ligase, represses LEF1 activity by sequestration into nuclear bodies. Genes Dev. 15(23):3088- 103) and c-Myb (Bies, J., Markus, J., and Wolff, L. 2002. Covalent attachment of the SUMO- 1 protein to the negative regulatory domain of the c-Myb transcription factor modifies its stability and transactivation capacity. / Biol Chem. 277( 1 1):8999-9009). Thus, SUMO-conjugation controls gene expression and growth control pathways that are important for cancer cell survival.

[0005] Altered expression of SAE pathway components have been noted in a variety of cancer types: (Moschos, S. J., Jukic, D. M., Athanassiou, C., Bhargava, R., Dacic, S., Wang, X., Kuan, S. F., Fayewicz, S. L., Galambos, C., Acquafondata, M., Dhir, R., and Becker, D. 2010. Expression analysis of Ubc9, the single small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) E2 conjugating enzyme, in normal and malignant tissues. Hum Pathol. 41(9): 1286-980); including multiple myeloma (Driscoll, J. J., Pelluru, D., Lefkimmiatis, K., Fulciniti, M., Prabhala, R. H., Greipp, P. R., Barlogie, B., Tai, Y. T., Anderson, K. C, Shaughnessy, J. D. Jr., Annunziata, C. M., and Munshi, N. C. 2010. The sumoylation pathway is dysregulated in multiple myeloma and is associated with adverse patient outcome. Blood. 1 15(14):2827-34); and breast cancer (Chen, S. F., Gong, C, Luo, M., Yao, H. R., Zeng, Y. J., and Su, F. X. 201 1. Ubc9 expression predicts chemoresistance in breast cancer. Chin J Cancer. 30(9):638-44), In addition, preclinical studies indicate that Myc-driven cancers may be especially sensitive to SAE inhibition (Kessler, J. D., Kahle, K. T., Sun, T., Meerbrey, K. L., Schlabach, M. R., Schmitt, E. M., Skinner, S. O., Xu, Q., Li, M. Z., Hartman, Z. C, Rao, M., Yu, P., Dominguez-Vidana, R., Liang, A. C, Solimini, N. L., Bernardi, R. J., Yu, B., Hsu, T., Golding, I., Luo, J., Osborne, C. K., Creighton, C. J., Hilsenbeck, S. G., Schiff, R., Shaw, C. A., Elledge, S. J., and Westbrook, T. F. 2012. A SUMOylation-dependent transcriptional subprogram is required for Myc-driven tumorigenesis. Science. 335(6066):348-53; Hoellein, A., Fallahi, M., Schoeffmann, S., Steidle, S., Schaub, F. X., Rudelius, M., Laitinen, I., Nilsson, L., Goga, A., Peschel, C, Nilsson, J. A., Cleveland, J. L., and Keller, U. 2014. Myc-induced SUMOylation is a therapeutic vulnerability for B-cell lymphoma. Blood. 124( 13):2081 -90). Since SUMO-conjugation regulates essential cellular functions that contribute to the growth and survival of tumor cells, targeting SAE could represent an approach to treat proliferative disorders such as cancer.

[0006] SAE inhibitors may also be applicable for the treatment of other diseases and conditions outside of oncology. For example, SUMO modifies proteins that play important roles in neurodegenerative diseases (Steffan, J. S., Agrawal, N., Pallos, J., Rockabrand, E., Trotman, L. C, Slepko, N., Hies, K., Lukacsovich, T., Zhu, Y. Z., Cattaneo, E., Pandolfi, P. P., Thompson, L. M., Marsh, J. L. 2004. SUMO modification of Huntington and Huntington’s disease pathology. Science. 304(5667): 100-4); Dorval, V., and Fraser, P. E. 2006. Small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) modification of natively unfolded proteins tau and alpha-synuclein. J Biol Chem. 281 ( 15):9919-24; Ballatore, C, Lee, V. M., and Trojanowski, J. Q. 2007. Tau-mediated neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Nat Rev Neurosci. 8(9):663-72). Sumoylation also has been reported to play important role in pathogenic viral infection, inflammation and cardiac function (Lee, H. R., Kim, D. J., Lee, J. M., Choi, C. Y., Ahn, B. Y., Hayward, G. S., and Ahn, J. H. 2004. Ability of the human cytomegalovirus ΓΕ1 protein to modulate sumoylation of PML correlates with its functional activities in transcriptional regulation and infectivity in cultured fibroblast cells. / Virol. 78(12):6527-42; Liu, B., and Shuai, K. 2009. Summon SUMO to wrestle with inflammation. Mol Cell. 35(6):731-2; Wang, J., and Schwartz, R. J. 2010. Sumoylation and regulation of cardiac gene expression. Circ Rei. l07( l): 19-29). [0007] It would be beneficial therefore to provide new SAE inhibitors that possess good therapeutic properties, especially for the treatment of proliferative, inflammatory, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders.

Presenter: Steven Paul Langston, associate director at Takeda Pharmaceuticals International

Target: Sumo activating enzyme

Disease: Solid tumors

Reporter’s notes: Langston gave the last talk of the morning session, placing him in the “precarious position of being between you and lunch,” he said. Takeda acquired this drug development program, falling under the umbrella of immuno-oncology, along with Millenium Pharmaceuticals in 2008. The team targeted a pathway known as SUMOylation, a protein post translation modification that is implicated in a number of cellular processes including immune response. In SUMOylation, enzymes attach a small protein to another protein. They found that inhibiting this pathway activates a type I interferon response in immune cells. How the molecule, TAK-981, inhibits this pathway is quite complicated, Langston said. TAK-981 forms an adduct with a small ubiquitin like modifier (SUMO) to inhibit a SUMO activating enzyme that catalyzes SUMOylation. While the synthesis of TAK-981 is fairly short, it requires a nonideal chiral chromatography separation after the first step. TAK-981 is in Phase I clinical trials as an intravenous infusion for patients with metastatic solid tumors or lymphomas.

Novel salts (citrate, mesylate, hydrosulfate, saccharinate and oxalate) forms of 7-methyl-2-[4-methyl-6-[4-(trifluoromethyl)-phenyl]pyrimidin-2-yl]-1,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one, processes for their preparation and compositions comprising them are claimed. Also claimed are their use for treating diseases and conditions mediated by modulation of voltage-gated sodium channels.

Voltage-gated sodium channels are responsible for the initial phase of the action potential, which is a wave of electrical depolarisation usually initiated at the soma of the neuron and propagated along the axon to the terminals. At the terminals, the action potential triggers the influx of calcium and the release of neurotransmitter. Drugs, such as lidocaine, that block voltage-gated sodium channels are used as local anaesthetics. Other sodium channel blockers, such as lamotrigine and carbamazepine are used to treat epilepsy. In the latter case, partial inhibition of voltage-gated sodium channels reduces neuronal excitability and reduces seizure propagation. In the case of local anaesthetics, regional block of sodium channels on sensory neurons prevents the conduction of painful stimuli. A key feature of these drugs is their state-dependent mechanism of action. The drugs are thought to stabilise an inactivated conformation of the channel that is adopted rapidly after the channel opens. This inactivated state provides a refractory period before the channel returns to its resting (closed) state ready to be reactivated. As a result, state-dependent sodium channel blockers inhibit the firing of neurons at high frequency, for example in response to painful stimuli, and will help to prevent repetitive firing during periods of prolonged neuronal depolarisation that might occur, for example, during a seizure. Action potentials triggered at lower frequencies, for example in the heart, will not be significantly affected by these drugs, although the safety margin differs in each case, since at high enough concentrations each of these drugs is capable of blocking the resting or open states of the channels.

The voltage-gated sodium channel family is made up of 9 subtypes, four of which are found in the brain, NaV1.1 , 1.2, 1.3 and 1.6. Of the other subtypes, NaV1.4 is found only in skeletal muscle, NaV1.5 is specific to cardiac muscle, and NaV1.7, 1.8, and 1.9 are found

predominantly in sensory neurons. The hypothesised binding site for state-dependent sodium channel blockers is the local anaesthetic (LA) binding site in the inner vestibule of the pore on transmembrane S6 of domain IV. Critical residues are located in a highly conserved region among the different subtypes, thus presenting a challenge for the design of new subtype selective drugs. Drugs such as lidocaine, lamotrigine and carbamazepine do not distinguish between the subtypes. However, selectivity can be achieved, and can be further enhanced functionally, as a result of the different frequencies at which the channels operate.

Drugs that block voltage-gated sodium channels in a state-dependent manner are also used in the treatment of bipolar disorder, either to reduce symptoms of mania or depression, or as mood stabilisers to prevent the emergence of mood episodes. Clinical and preclinical evidence also suggests that state-dependent sodium channel blockers may help to reduce the symptoms of schizophrenia. For example, lamotrigine has been shown to reduce symptoms of psychosis induced by ketamine in healthy human volunteers, and furthermore, studies in patients suggest that the drug can augment the antipsychotic efficacy of some atypical antipsychotic drugs, such as clozapine or olanzapine. It is hypothesised that efficacy in these psychiatric disorders may result in part from a reduction of excessive glutamate release. The reduction in glutamate release is thought to be a consequence of sodium channel inhibition in key brain areas, such as the frontal cortex. However, interaction with voltage-gated calcium channels may also contribute to the efficacy of these drugs.

WO 2013/175205 (Convergence Pharmaceuticals Limited) describes (2R,5S)-7-methyl-2-[4-methyl-6-[4-(trifluoromethyl)-phenyl]pyrimidin-2-yl]-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one hydrochloride, sulfuric acid salt and sulfuric acid salt hydrate which are claimed to be modulators of voltage-gated sodium channels. The object of the invention is to identify alternative salts of said compound which have advantageous properties.

Example 1

(2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-[4-methyl-6-[4-(trifluoromethyl)-phenyl]pyrimidin-2-yl]-1,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-

To a solution of (2R,5S)-7-methyl-2-[4-methyl-6-[4-(trifluoromethyl)-phenyl]pyrimidin-2-yl]-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one (which may be prepared in accordance with the procedure described in Example 1 of WO 2013/175205) (4.45g, 0.0114 mol) dissolved in absolute ethanol (66.82 ml, 15 vol) at 45 °C was added a solution of citric acid in ethanol (1 M, 1.05 equiv. 12 ml) over a period of 2-3 minutes. The solution was aged at 45 °C for a period of 1 hour. After 30 minutes a seed of citrate salt (0.1 wt%) was added and the mixture allowed to cool over approximately 2 hours and mature for 18 hours at ambient temperature (approximately 10-15 °C). Following maturation the salt was noted to be a very thick suspension (white) that required mobilisation with 20 ml additional ethanol and a further maturation period of 2 hours at ambient temperature. Filtration was carried out under vacuum and the vessel and cake rinsed with 15 ml ethanol. The de-liquored cake was dried further in a vacuum oven at 50 °C to provide 6.0 g of crystalline white solid (91 % yield).

H NMR (400MHz, DMSO-D6): δΗ 1.90-2.05 (2H, m), 2.10-2.20 (2H, m,), 2.20-2.30 (1 H, m), -2.50 (1 H, m, partially masked by solvent)), 2.55-2.68 (4H, m), 2.56 (3H, s), 2.79 (3H, s),

3.28-3.40 (2H, m), 4.79 (1 H, t, J= 8.0 Hz), 7.92 (2H, d, J = 8.4 Hz), 8.03 (1 H, s), 8.45 (2H, d, J= 8.8Hz) ppm, (exchangeables not reported)

Characterisation of Example 1

The XRPD of Example 1 is presented in FIG. 1 and the DSC/TGA of Example 1 is presented in FIG. 2. The citrate salt of Example 1 displayed the following characteristics:

1 endotherm onset: 171.82°C

peak maximum: 174.55°C

There was an endotherm post the main endotherm.

There was no weight reduction until ca 168°C had been reached. The weight reduction commenced with the start of the main endotherm and coincided with the endotherm post the main endotherm which indicated that this thermal event was the onset of compound decomposition and loss of citric acid. Thermal events >220°C were due to compound decomposition.

The XPRD data in FIG. 1 demonstrated that under different extremes of humidity indicate a stable crystalline form of the citrate salt of Example 1 with no tendency to form hydrates. This is supported by DSC/TGA data in FIG. 2 which show clear transitions and no evidence of solvates.

Aqueous solubility of the citrate salt (Example 1) = 22mg/ml (25°C).

Example 2

(2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-[4-methyl-6-[4-(trifluoromethyl)-phenyl]pyrimidin-2-yl]-1,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one ) salt (E2)

To a solution of (2R,5S)-7-methyl-2-[4-methyl-6-[4-(trifluoromethyl)-phenyl]pyrimidin-2-yl]-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one (which may be prepared in accordance with the procedure described in Example 1 of WO 2013/175205) (4.45g, 0.0114 mol) dissolved in absolute ethanol (66.82 ml, 15 vol) at 45 °C was added a solution of methanesulfonic acid in ethanol (1 M, 1.05 equiv. 12 ml) over a period of 2-3 minutes. The solution was aged at 45 °C for a period of 1 hour. After 10 minutes nucleation and gradual crystallisation was noted to afford a thick mixture. Additional ethanol was added (10 ml) to mobilise the suspension that was then allowed to cool over approximately 2 hours and mature for 18 hours at ambient temperature (approximately 10-15 °C). Following maturation the salt was noted to be a thin, mobile suspension (white) that was filtered under vacuum and the vessel and cake rinsed with 15 ml ethanol. The de-liquored cake was dried further in a vacuum oven at 50 °C to provide 4.0 g of crystalline white solid (72% yield).

H NMR (400MHz, DMSO-D6): δΗ 2.1-2.45 (4H, m), 2.27 (3H, s), 2.50-2.75 (2H, m), 2.61 (3H, s), 2.86 (3H, s), 3.35-3.50 (2H, m), 5.20 (1 H, t, J = 8 Hz), 7.96 (2H, d, J = 8.8 Hz), 8.17 (1 H, s), 8.51 (2H, d, J = 8.4Hz), 9.45 (1 H, br), 10.16 (1 H, br) ppm.

Characterisation of Example 2

The XRPD of Example 2 is presented in FIG. 3 and the DSC/TGA of Example 2 is presented in FIG. 4. The DSC thermograph of the methanesulfonate (mesylate) (Example 2) displayed the following characteristics:

One distinct endotherm onset: 247.34°C

peak maximum: 250.34°C

The TGA thermograph showed no weight reduction until ca 250°C had been reached. The weight reduction commenced with the start of the main endotherm and indicated that this thermal event was the onset of compound decomposition. There is no evidence of entrapped solvents or water.

The XPRD data in FIG. 3 demonstrated that under different extremes of humidity indicate a stable crystalline form of the mesylate salt of Example 2 with no tendency to form hydrates. This is supported by DSC/TGA data in FIG. 4 which show clear transitions and no evidence of solvates.

Aqueous solubility of the mesylate salt (Example 2) = 65mg/ml (25°C).

Example 3

Preparation of (2R,5S)-7-methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one hydrosulfate single crystals: 25.0 mg of (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluorome

one hydrosulfate was added to 4 mL vial. 1.000 mL of anhydrous EtOH was added, and the sample was filtered. Anhydrous hexanes were added dropwise until the solution neared the precipitation point. The vial was sealed and left undisturbed for 24 hr, after which time a crop of single crystals was evident. The sample was sent for single crystal analysis and confirmed as the anhydrous (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one hydrosulfate form (FIGs. 5A-5B).

Example 4

Preparation of (2R,5S)-7-methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one freebase: 8.00 g of (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one hydrosulfate (JM Lot R-2017-4323 D 301) was added to a 1 L Erlenmeyer flask and suspended and stirred vigorously in 400 mL of THF. 20% K2C03 (250 mL) was added and dissolved. The mixture was transferred to 1 L sep. funnel. 100 mL EtOAc was added and the aqueous and organic layers were separated. The aqueous layer was re-extracted with 50 mL of EtOAc and the combined organics were back-extracted with brine (100 mL) and water (100 mL). Due to fairly poor separation, a significant quantity of MgSCU was required to dry the solution. The solution was reduced via Rotavap (45 °C) to -50 mL, transferred to a 100 mL RB flask, reduced down to -10 mL, transferred to 20 mL scintillation vial and continued to be reduced to a thick oil. The oil was left on the Rotavap for another hour and a “wet” solid was obtained. Loosened solids on the bottom of the vial were left on the Rotavap for 1 hr with no heat applied to obtain a chunky solid. The contents was transferred to a mortar and pestle, ground to powder and fine granules, placed back in a 20 mL scintillation vial and left on a Rotavap overnight to obtain a dry solid (5.1 g). The XRPD pattern of (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one freebase is shown in FIG. 6.

Example 5

Preparation of (2R,5S)-7-methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one saccharinate: 199.7 mg of (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-

methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrirnidin-2-yl)-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one free base (0.5115 mmol) was dissolved in 4.2 mL of 2-Me-THF. 98.1 mg of saccharin (0.5106 mmol) was dissolved in 4.2 mL of 2-Me-THF. Saccharin was added to the freebase, and after 15 seconds the mixture began to precipitate and solidify. 10 mL of 2-Me-THF was added and stirred at max rpm as to provide a thick white suspension in 10 min. The suspension was filtered, air dried under vacuum for 10 min on frit, then dried under a stream of nitrogen for 30 min resulting in 215 mg of white solid product. The XRPD pattern for (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one saccharinate is shown in FIG. 7.

Example 6

Preparation of (2R,5S)-7-methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one oxalate: 403 mg of (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one freebase was dissolved in 4.03 mL EtOH. 1.000 mL of this solution was added to a 4 mL vial. 23.8 mg of oxalic acid was dissolved in 1.000 mL of EtOH and added dropwise to the stirring (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one freebase solution. After 5 min, a white precipitate was evident and 2.000 mL of EtOH was added to the slurry to aid stirring. The resulting suspension was stirred overnight. The following day the suspension was filtered and dried on a frit under vacuum for 10 min yielding 106 mg of white solid. The XRPD pattern for (2R,5S)-7-Methyl-2-(4-methyl-6-(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-2-yl)-1 ,7-diazaspiro[4.4]nonan-6-one oxalate is shown in FIG. 8.

ntibiotics are the most effective drugs for curing bacteria-infectious diseases clinically. They have a wide market due to their advantages of good antibacterial effect with limited side effects. Among them, the beta-lactam class of antibiotics (for example, penicillins, cephalosporins, and carbapenems) is widely used because they have a strong bactericidal effect and low toxicity.

[0005] To counter the efficacy of the various beta-lactams, bacteria have evolved to produce variants of beta-lactam deactivating enzymes called beta-lactamases, and in the ability to share this tool inter- and intra-species. These beta-lactamases are categorized as“serine” or“metallo” based, respectively, on presence of a key serine or zinc in the enzyme active site. The rapid spread of this mechanism of bacterial resistance can severely limit beta-lactam treatment options in the hospital and in the community.

Presenter: Christopher John Burns, president and chief executive officer of VenatoRx Pharmaceuticals

Target: β-lactamases

Disease: Resistant urinary tract infections

Reporter’s notes: Having unveiled an antibacterial candidate at last spring’s first time disclosures session, Burns was back with another, this time the molecule can be taken orally. Both VenatoRx (pronounced Ven-a-tor-ix) compounds resuscitate the activity of β-lactam drugs, which make up more than 60% of all antibiotics prescribed. Unfortunately, many bacteria have grown resistant to these antibiotics. The new compounds rescue the old antibacterials by inhibiting β-lactamases, enzymes that chew up the antibiotics. To test the activity of new β-lactamase-targeting compounds, the researchers settled on several “sentinel” bacteria strains. Then to find a candidate with oral bioavailability, the team focused on molecules with low polarity and low molecular weight. They found VNRX-7145, developed as a prodrug in which esterases in the liver clip off the tips of the molecule to reveal the active drug. VNRX-5133, disclosed at last year’s meeting, had to be delivered intravenously along with another IV-antibiotic Cefepime, and targeted serine and metallo β-lactamases. The new oral candidate VNRX-7145 inhibits serine β-lactamases with Ceftibuten as its partner. The VNRX-7145 combination is now in Phase I studies to treat resistant urinary tract infections.

Example 19 (Table 1: Compound 19): Synthesis of 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(2-(3,3-difluoro-3-phosphonopropoxy)ethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[f][ 1, 7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoic acid (19)

Scheme 6

Step 1: (E)-ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-chlorophenyl)acrylate (6-3)

[517] To a solution of tert-butyl 5-bromo-2-chlorophenylcarbamate (6-1) (1.0 equiv.) in acetonitrile (0.3 M) and EtOH (0.5 M) was added K2C03 (2.0 equiv.). The reaction was degassed and flushed with N , then added (E)-ethyl 3-(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-l,3,2-dioxaborolan-2-yl)acrylate (6-2) (1.2 equiv.) and Pd(PPh3)4 (0.1 equiv.). The reaction was flushed again with N2 and stirred at 100 °C overnight. After cooling to room temperature, hexane was added, and the mixture was filtered through a pad of silica, eluting with EA/Hex (1 : 1) until the product was completely eluted. The filtrate was concentrated and purified on Combiflash, eluting with 0-15% EA in Hex to give (E)-ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-chlorophenyl)acrylate (6-3) as a white solid.

Step 2: ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-chlorophenyl)propanoate (6-4)

[518] To a solution of (E)-ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-chlorophenyl)acrylate (6-3) (1.0 equiv.) in ethyl acetate/ethanol (1 : 1 , 0.3 M) was added Wilkinson’s catalyst (0.10 equiv.).

Hydrogen gas was introduced via a ballon, and the reaction was stirred at room temperature for 24 hours. The mixture was filtered through a pad of celite, washing with dichloromethane. The filtrate was concentrated in vacuo and purified by Combiflash using 0-10% ethyl acetate in hexane to give ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-chlorophenyl)propanoate (6-4) as a solid.

Step 3: ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-l,3,2-dioxaborolan-2-yl)phenyl)propanoate (6-5)

[519] A solution of ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-chlorophenyl)propanoate (6-4) (1 .0 equiv.), 4,4,4,,4′,5,5,5′,5′-octamethyl-2,2′-bi(l ,3,2-dioxaborolane) (2.0 equiv.), tris(dibenzylideneacetone)dipalladium(0) (0.05 equiv.), 2-dicyclohexylphosphino-2′,4′,6′-triisopropylbiphenyl (0.20 equiv.), and potassium acetate (2.0 equiv.) in 1 ,4-dioxane (0.2 M) was degassed and stirred at 100 °C overnight. After cooling to ambient temperature, the reaction content was concentrated in vacuo. The crude material was purified by Combiflash using 0-50% ethyl acetate in hexane to afford ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl- 1 ,3,2-dioxaborolan-2-yl)phenyl)propanoate (6-5) as a brown oil. The product was stored at -20°C and used within a month of synthesis.

Step 4: l-bromo-4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylbenzene (6-7)

[520] To a solution of 4-bromo-3-methylphenol (6-6) (1.0 equiv.) in DMF (0.5 M) at 0 °C was added portionwise 60% wt NaH (1.5 equiv.). The addition was controlled such that internal reaction temperature never went above 10 °C. The reaction was stirred at room temperature for 45 minutes, then a solution of chloro(methoxy)methane (1.2 equiv.) in DMF (3 M) was added dropwise via additional funnel. The reaction was stirred at room temperature for 3.5 hours, and then quenched by pouring into ice. The resulting mixture was stirred at room temperature for 1 hour. Ether was added, and the two layers were separated. The aqueous layer was extracted (lx) with ether. The combined organic layers were washed with water (2x), brine, dried over MgS04, and concentrated to give 1 -bromo-4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylbenzene (6-7) as a colorless oil. The crude material was used in the next step without further purification.

Step 5: triethylf (4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)silane

[521] A solution of l -bromo-4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylbenzene (1.0 equiv.), triethylamine (5.0 equiv.) in DMF (0.5 M) was degassed and flushed with nitrogen. To the reaction was added TES-acetylene (1.05 equiv.), Cul (0.098 equiv.), and Pd(PPh3)2Cl2 (0.098 equiv.). The reaction was heated to 60 °C and stirred overnight. After cooling to room temperature, water and ether were added. The layers were separated, and the organic layer was washed with water (2x). The organic layer was separated and passed through a pad of silica (packed with hexane). The silica was eluted with 10% EA in Hex. The fractions were combined and concentrated to give triethyl((4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)silane as a black oil. The crude material was used in the next step without further purification.

Step 6: l-ethynyl-4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylbenzene (6-8)

[522] To a solution of triethyl((4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)silane (1.0 equiv.) at

0 °C was slowly added tetrabutylammonium fluoride (1M solution in THF, 0.20 equiv.). At this

point, the ice-bath was removed and the reaction mixture was allowed to stir at room temperature for 45 minutes. The reaction mixture was then passed through a pad of silica (packed with hexane) and eluted with 20% EtOAc in Hexanes to remove insoluble salts. The crude product was then purified by Combiflash using 0-10% EtOAc in Hexanes to give 1 -ethynyl-4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylbenzene (6-8) as a slightly brown liquid.

Step 7: 3-chloro-5-((4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)picolinonitrile (6-10)

[523] A solution of l -ethynyl-4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylbenzene (6-8) (1 .0 equiv.), 3,5-dichloropicolinonitrile (6-9) (0.90 equiv.), Cul (0.10 equiv.), and Pd(PPh3)2CI2 (0.10 equiv.), and triethylamine (5.0 equiv.) in DMF (0.25 M) was degassed and flushed with nitrogen. The reaction mixture was then heated to 60 °C and stirred overnight. After cooling to room temperature, water was added. The mixture was extracted with EA (2x). The combined organic layers were washed with 10% aq NH4OH (2x), brine, and concentrated. The crude material was filtered through a pad of silica (wetted with hexane). The silica was eluted with 10% EA in Hex. The fractions were combined and concentrated. The resulting solids were washed in hot ether and filtered to give a yellow solid, which was used in the next step without further purification. The filtrate was concentrated and purified by Combiflash using 0- 10% EtOAc in Hexanes to give 3-chloro-5-((4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)picolinonitrile (6-10) as a yellow solid.

Step 8: ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-((4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)-ben∑o fJfl, 7J

naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-11)

[524] A solution of 3-chloro-5-((4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)picolinonitrile (6-10) (1 .0 equiv.), ethyl 3-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-4-(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-l ,3,2-dioxaborolan-2-yl)phenyl)propanoate (6-5) (1.25 equiv.), tris(dibenzylideneacetone)dipalladium(0) (0.10 equiv.), dicyclohexyl(2′,6′-dimethoxybiphenyl-2-yl)phosphine (0.20 equiv.), and sodium bicarbonate (3.0 equiv.) in «-butanol /H20 (5: 1 , 0.2 M) was degassed and stirred at 100 °C overnight. After cooling to ambient temperature, the reaction content was diluted with ethyl acetate and water. The two phases were separated, and the aqueous layer was extracted twice with ethyl acetate. The combined organic layers were washed with brine, dried over anhydrous MgS04, and concentrated in vacuo. The crude material was purified by flash chromatography on a COMBIFLASH® system (1SCO) using 0-40% ethyl acetate in DCM first to remove the impurity, then 0-4% MeOH in DCM to give ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-((4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)-benzo[f][l ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl) propanoate (6-11). Further purification was accomplished by precipitating and washing in hot ether.

Step 9: ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[fl[l ]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-12)

[525] A solution of ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-((4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenyl)ethynyl)-benzo[f][l ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-11) (1.0 equiv.) in EtOH/THF (3: 1 , 0.16 M) was flushed with nitrogen. Then, 10% wt Pd/C (0.20 equiv. by weight) was added. The reaction was flushed with hydrogen (2x) and stirred under a hydrogen balloon. After 24 hours, the reaction was filtered through a pad of celite, washing with 5%MeOH in DCM. The filtrate was checked for the presence of starting material using LCMS. The hydrogenation reaction was repeated until no more

of the alkyne starting material or alkene intermediate was detected. The crude product was purified by Combiflash using 0-4% eOH in DCM to give ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[f][l ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-12) as a white solid.

Step 10: ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-hydroxy-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[fl[l ]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-13)

[526] Ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(methoxymethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[fJ[l ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-12) (1 .0 equiv.) was dissolved in EtOH (0.2 M), then added a solution of 4M HC1 in dioxane (0.2 M). The product precipitated out as a yellow salt. After stirring for 3 hours, the reaction was poured into a stirring solution of ether. The mixture was stirred for 10 minutes, then filtered and washed with ether. Ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-hydroxy-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[fJ[l ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-13) was obtained as a yellow solid which was dried on vacuum overnight (bis-HCl salt). Alternatively, the crude product was purified by Combiflash using 0-5% MeOH in DCM to give the free base.

Step 11: ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(2-(3-(diethoxyphosphoryl)-3,3-difluoropropoxy)ethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[f] [1 , 7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate ( 6-15)

[527] To a solution of ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-hydroxy-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[fJ [ l ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-13) (1.0 equiv.) dissolved in DMF (0.14 M) was added a solution of diethyl 3-(2-bromoethoxy)-l ,l -difluoropropylphosphonate (6-14: described in Example 7 – Step 1) (1 .3 equiv.) in DMF (0.7 M) and cesium carbonate (4 equiv.). The reaction was stirred at 60 °C. After 1.5 hours (or until reaction is complete by LCMS), DCM (2 volume equivalent) was added to the reaction. The solids (inorganic) were filtered, and the filtrate was concentration. The crude product was purified by Combiflash using 0-5%MeOH in DCM to give ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(2-(3-(diethoxyphosphoryl)-3,3-difluoropropoxy)ethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[fJ

[1 ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-15) as an oil which upon standing became a white solid.

Step 12: 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(2-(3,3-difluoro-3-phosphompropoxy)ethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)be o[f]

[1, 7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoic acid (19)

[528] To a solution of ethyl 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(2-(3-(diethoxyphosphoryl)-3,3-difluoropropoxy)ethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)benzo[f][l ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoate (6-15) (1.0 equiv.) in DCM (0.16 M) at 0 °C was added slowly TMSBr (10 equiv.). The reaction was stirred at room temperature overnight. Additional TMSBr (5.0 equiv.) was added at 0 °C, and the reaction was again stirred at room temperature overnight. The solvent was removed by evaporation and the crude orange solids dried on hi-vac briefly. The solids were suspended in EtOH (0.5 M) and added 2.5 N

NaOH (10.0 equiv.). The reaction was stirred at 80 °C for 3 hours. After cooling to room temperature, the mixture was adjusted to pH 9 to 10 and directly purified on RP-HPLC using a CI 8 column, eluting with 10-40% 95:5 (MeCN/5mM NH4OAc) in l OmM NH4OAc (pH 9) gradient. The fractions containing the product were combined and concentrated in vacuo. The resulting white gel was dissolved in refluxing 1 :1 EtOH/water (0.04 M) with the addition of a few drops of ammonium hydroxide. While hot, the mixture was slowly poured into a stirring hot solution of acetone (0.009

M) preheated at 50 °C. The acetone suspension was slowly cooled to room temperature for 15 minutes with continued stirring, and then sat in an ice bath for 10 minutes. The solids were filtered and washed successively with acetone (2x) and ether (2x). The solids were dried on hi-vac overnight to give the 3-(5-amino-2-(4-(2-(3,3-difluoro-3-phosphonopropoxy)ethoxy)-2-methylphenethyl)benzo [fj[l ,7]naphthyridin-8-yl)propanoic acid (19) as a solid.

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are pattern recognition receptors which play an essential role in the innate immunity, by recognizing invasion of microbial pathogens and initiating intracellular signal transduction pathways to trigger expression of genes, the products of which can control innate immune responses. Specifically, Toll like receptor (TLR) agonists activate innate immune cells through the TLR-MyD88-NFk and IRF3/7 pathways. TLR7, TLR8, and TLR9 belong to a subfamily of TLRs based on their genomic structure, sequence similarities, and homology. TLR7, TLR8, and TLR9 are located in intracellular endolysosomal compartments and show a unique pattern of cell type-specific expression that is thought to be responsible for different pathogen response profiles.

Small molecule agonists of TLR7 and/or TLR8 have been reported and shown to activate innate immune responses by inducing selected cytokine biosynthesis, the induction of co-stimulatory molecules, and by increased antigen-presenting capacity. Such compounds include imidazoquinoline amine derivatives (U.S. Patent No. 4689338), imidazopyridine amine derivative (U.S. Patent No. 5446153), imidazonaphthyridine derivative (U.S. Patent No.

6194425), oxazoloquinoline amine derivatives (U.S. Patent No. 61 10929); thiazoloquinoline amine derivatives (U.S. Patent No. 61 10929), selenazoloquinoline amine derivatives (U.S. Patent No. 61 10929), pyrazolopyridine derivatives (U.S. Patent No. 9145410), and

benzonaphthyridine amine derivatives (U.S. Patent Nos. 8466167 and 9045470).

The synthetic TLR7 agonist, Imiquimod (1 -(2-methylpropyl)-1 H-imidazo[ 4,5-c]quinolin-4-amine) is FDA-approved in a cream formulation for the topical treatment of cutaneous basal cell carcinoma, actinic keratosis and genital warts, and has limited activity against cutaneous melanoma and breast tumors (J. Immunol. 2014, 193(9) : 4722^1-731 ). Systemic administration of Imiquimod, and structurally similar Resiquimod, is limited by cytokine- mediated adverse effects including severe flu-like symptoms (Expert Opin. Emerging Drugs (2010), 15:544-555). Consequently, Imiquimod is used exclusively in topical applications and is not used to treat deep, non-cutaneous tumors such as melanoma or solid tumors.

An injectable lipid modified imidazoquinoline (TLR7/8 dual agonist) that forms a tissue depot with gradual, sustained release which allows for local TLR triggering activity without systemic cytokine release has been reported (J. Immunol. 2014, 193(9): 4722^731 ). However, this compound was shown to be ineffective for large tumors and in addition the serum concentration of this compound 24 hours post subcutaneous administration decreased by approximately 50% (Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer, 2014, 2:12). Therefore, there remains a need for intratumor administration of a TLR7 agonist with prolonged sustained release, which may benefit the treatment of large tumors.

Candidate: LHC165

Presenter: Alex Cortez, senior Investigator I at the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation

Target: Toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7)

Disease: Solid tumors

Reporter’s notes: Cortez shared another story in the realm of immuno-oncology, although the program that yielded this compound actually started in the world of vaccines. Cortez’s team had been focusing on vaccine adjuvants, small molecules that turn on the immune system to enhance a vaccine’s effect. They developed one such class of compound that activates toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7), a protein in the immune system that recognizes dangerous-looking molecules and can trigger the release of infection-clearing proteins. After observing TLR7 agonists’ ability to induce an immune response with vaccines, the researchers wondered whether the molecules could also be effective in immuno-oncology.

They found that LHC165 adsorbed to aluminum hydroxide reduced tumor growth in mice and, intriguingly, showed signs of an abscopal effect, in which untreated tumors shrink concurrently with treated tumors. The implication is that if the immune system recognizes one tumor site, it can recognize others. As with several of the candidates presented throughout the day, LHC165 bears a phosphate group and is injected into the tumor. It’s currently in Phase I trials in patients with advanced malignancies, which means they’ve already tried second and third line therapies, as a single agent and in combination with the checkpoint inhibitor PDR001.

Presenter: Kenneth V. Lawson, senior scientist at Arcus Biosciences

Target: Ecto-5’-nucleotidase (CD73)

Disease: Cancer

Reporter’s notes: In the first talk of the day, Lawson introduced the idea of cancer drugs that target the host’s immune system. “Checkpoint inhibitors changed the way we think of treating cancer,” he said. These drugs successfully disrupt the binding interaction between a protein and a checkpoint protein that stops immune T cells from killing cancer cells. As a result, these drugs turn immune cells loose to attack tumor cells. But the drugs work only in about 30-40% of patients—an issue pharmaceutical companies like Arcus hope to address with new immunotherapies that can be taken in combination with checkpoint inhibitors.

Lawson’s team set out to inhibit an enzyme commonly found in tumors called CD73, the second of two enzymes which break down extracellular adenosine trisphosphate (ATP) to adenosine. Adenosine then binds to immunosuppressive receptors on immune cells and shuts them down. Yet developing a small molecule inhibitor of CD73 proved challenging, Lawson said. After striking out with high-throughput screening, the team turned to CD73’s natural substrate for inspiration. However, the molecule possessed more than one phosphate group, which is notoriously a liability for drug molecules because small molecules with such negative changes struggle to cross cell membranes. The team’s goal was to remove the phosphate groups, Lawson says, but things didn’t exactly go according to plan. After showing the audience a series of compounds from structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies—slides no medicinal chemistry talk would be complete without—Lawson revealed the structure of their final clinical compound AB680 as the sound of people flipping notebook sheets rippled across the room. Synthesized in 34% overall yield, the candidate ultimately included two phosphate groups—a feature that surprised audience members.

Tests revealed that AB680 can be given intravenously but the compound also showed moderate oral bioavailability. Lawson suggested a possible route for how the molecule might pass from the digestive tract to the bloodstream, a paracellular mechanism by which molecules cross the epithelium by passing through the space between cells. AB680 showed “extraordinary potency,” inhibiting CD73 in human T-cells at a concentration of 0.008 nM. The compound has a 4 day half-life, which means it could be dosed every two weeks, coinciding with the dosing schedule for patients who receive a checkpoint inhibitor. AB680 is currently in Phase 1 clinical trials with healthy patients.

Purinergic signaling, a type of extracellular signaling mediated by purine nucleotides and nucleosides such as ATP and adenosine, involves the activation of purinergic receptors in the cell and/or in nearby cells, resulting in the regulation of cellular functions. Most cells have the ability to release nucleotides, which generally occurs via regulated exocytosis (see Praetorius, H. A.; Leipziger, J. (1 Mar. 2010) Ann Rev Physiology 72(1): 377-393). The released nucleotides can then be hydrolyzed extracellularly by a variety of cellular membrane-bound enzymes referred to as ectonucleotidases.
      Ectonucleotides catalyze the conversion of ATP to adenosine, an endogenous modulator that impacts multiple systems, including the immune system, the cardiovascular system, the central nervous system, and the respiratory system. Adenosine also promotes fibrosis in a variety of tissues. In the first step of the production of adenosine, ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase 1 (ENTPD1), also known as CD39 (Cluster of Differentiation 39), hydrolyzes ATP to ADP, and then ADP to AMP. In the next step, AMP is converted to adenosine by 5′-nucleotidase, ecto (NT5E or 5NT), also known as CD73 (Cluster of Differentiation 73).
      The enzymatic activities of CD39 and CD73 play strategic roles in calibrating the duration, magnitude, and chemical nature of purinergic signals delivered to various cells (e.g., immune cells). Alteration of these enzymatic activities can change the course or dictate the outcome of several pathophysiological events, including cancer, autoimmune diseases, infections, atherosclerosis, and ischemia-reperfusion injury, suggesting that these ecto-enzymes represent novel therapeutic targets for managing a variety of disorders.
      CD73 inhibition with monoclonal antibodies, siRNA, or small molecules delays tumor growth and metastasis (Stagg, J. (2010) PNAS U.S.A. 107:1547-52). For example, anti-CD73 antibody therapy was shown to inhibit breast tumor growth and metastasis in animal models (Stagg, J. (26 Jan. 2010) PNAS U.S.A, 107(4):1547-52). In addition, the use of antibodies that specifically bind CD73 has been evaluated for the treatment of bleeding disorders (e.g., hemophilia) (U.S. Pat. No. 9,090,697). Recently, there have been several efforts to develop therapeutically useful CD73 small molecule inhibitors. For example, Bhattarai et al. ((2015) J Med Chem 58:6248-63) have studied derivatives and analogs of α,β-Methylene-ADP (AOPCP), one of the most metabolically stable, potent and selective CD73 inhibitors known, and purine CD73 derivatives have been reported in the patent literature (WO 2015/164573). However, the development of small molecules has been hampered due to, for example, less than ideal metabolic stability.
      In view of the role played by CD73 in cancer, as well as a diverse array of other diseases, disorders and conditions, and the current lack of CD73 inhibitors available to medical practitioners, new CD73 inhibitors, and compositions and methods associated therewith, are needed.

[00315] Step 1 (Protocol #1): To a 100-L jacketed reactor were charged 4-amino-6- bromo-2-methyl-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine-5-carbonitrile (3.00 kg), (3R,4R,5R)-2-acetoxy-5- ((benzoyloxy)methyl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4-diyl dibenzoate (6.60 kg) and DCE (18.89 kg). Stirring was started and DBU (3.61) kg was added. Over a period of 03 h and 14 min, TMSOTf (8.01 kg) was added between 30.6 °C and 37.3 °C. IPC after 01 h and 30 min at approx.32 °C showed 4% of 4-amino-6-bromo-2-methyl-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine-5-carbonitrile (3.00 kg),

(3R,4R,5R)-2-acetoxy-5-((benzoyloxy)methyl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4-diyl dibenzoate remaining. IPC after 03h and 16 min at approx.32 °C showed 2% 4-amino-6-bromo-2-methyl-7H- pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine-5-carbonitrile (3.00 kg), (3R,4R,5R)-2-acetoxy-5- ((benzoyloxy)methyl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4-diyl dibenzoate remaining (spec:≤3%). The reaction mixture was diluted with DCM (39.81 kg) and quenched with potable water (15.02 kg) over an 11 min period between 9.5 °C and 15.6 °C. The extractive work-up (at approx.22 °C) was completed by a back extraction of the aqueous phase with DCM (19.90 kg), a wash with sat NaHCO3 (1.3 kg NaHCO3 in 14.9 kg potable water), a back extraction of the bicarbonate phase with DCM (19.71 kg) and a wash with brine (4.5 kg NaCl in 14.9 kg potable water). Note: the reactor was cleaned with potable water, acetone and DCM after each wash/back extraction.

[00316] The drummed organic phase containing the product was charged to the 100-L jacketed reactor through an in-line filter followed by a DCM rinse of the drum and filter with DCM (2.48 kg). The contents of the reactor were distilled to 31 L with the aid of vacuum over a period of 06 h and 04 min with a maximum temperature of 50.1 °C. At this point a thick suspension had formed. Next, over a period of 39 min, IPAc (41.88 kg) was added between 44.5 °C and 49.5 °C and the contents of the reactor were heated to 76.9 °C over a period of 01 h and 25 min. Next, the contents of the reactor were cooled to 9.9 °C over a period of 04 h and 21 min and stirred for 12 h and 26 min with a minimum temperature of 1.6 °C.

[00317] Step 1 (Protocol # 2): To a 100-L jacketed reactor were charged 4-amino-6- bromo-2-methyl-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine-5-carbonitrile (3.00 kg), (3R,4R,5R)-2-acetoxy-5- ((benzoyloxy)methyl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4-diyl dibenzoate (6.60 kg) and DCE (18.80 kg). Stirring was started and DBU (3.59) kg was added. Over a period of 01 h and 46 min, TMSOTf (7.90 kg) was added between 30.4 °C and 34.2 °C. IPC after 02 h and 49 min at approx.34 °C showed 1% of 4-amino-6-bromo-2-methyl-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine-5-carbonitrile remaining (spec: ≤3%). The reaction mixture was diluted with DCM (40/70 kg) and quenched with potable water (14.97 kg) over an 04 min period between 9.9 °C and 18.0 °C. The extractive work-up (at approx.22 °C) was completed by a back extraction of the aqueous phase with DCM (20.34 kg), a wash with sat NaHCO3 (1.30 kg NaHCO3 in 14.90 kg potable water), a back extraction of the bicarbonate phase with DCM (20.65 kg) and a wash with brine (4.50 kg NaCl in 14.96 kg potable water). Note: the reactor was cleaned with potable water, acetone and DCM after each wash/back extraction.

[00318] The drummed organic phase containing the product was charged to the 100-L jacketed reactor through an in-line filter followed by a DCM rinse of the drum and filter with DCM (1.49 kg). The contents of the reactor were distilled to with the aid of vacuum over a period of 04 h and 49 min with a maximum temperature of 45.6 °C. At this point a thick suspension had formed. Next, over a period of 27 min, IPAc (41.70 kg) was added between 45.6 °C and 48.2 °C and the contents of the reactor were heated to 75.7 °C over a period of 01 h and 20 min. Next, the contents of the reactor were cooled to 9.4 °C over a period of 04 h and 15 min and stirred overnight with a minimum temperature of 2.3 °C.

[00319] Step 2: To the reactor were charged (2R,3R,4R,5R)-2-(4-amino-6-bromo-5- cyano-2-methyl-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-7-yl)-5-((benzoyloxy)methyl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4- diyl dibenzoate (10.0 kg), 10% Pd on C (Degussa, Type E101NE/W), trimethylamine (7.3 kg) and THF (44.5 kg). Hydrogen was submitted to the reactor and the mixture was stirred for 03 h and 54 min between 24.7 °C and 19.6 °C at approx.30.8 psig. IPC (HPLC) showed that

(2R,3R,4R,5R)-2-(4-amino-6-bromo-5-cyano-2-methyl-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-7-yl)-5- ((benzoyloxy)methyl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4-diyl dibenzoate could no longer be detected.

[00320] The reaction mixture was filtered over Celite (7.2 kg) and a polish filter and the filter residue was washed with THF (5.2 kg). The combined filtrate and wash was transferred to a 100-L jacketed reactor with the aid of a THF wash (2.12 kg). The contents of the reactor were vacuum distilled with a maximum batch temperature of 30.0 °C over a period of 05 h and 38 min to a final volume of 27 L. IPA (31.48 kg) was charged over a 40 min period to the reactor between 39.7 °C and 53.2 °C. The contents of the reactor were vacuum distilled with a maximum batch temperature of 53.2 °C over a period of 03 h and 02 min to a final volume of 33 L. IPA (48.99 kg) was charged over a 43 min period to the reactor between 53.1 °C and 57.1 °C. The contents of the reactor were heated to 60.2 °C, agitated for 12 min and cooled over a period of 04 and 28 min to 5.4 °C. Cold stirring was continued for a period of 08 h and 55 min with a minimum temperature of 1.1 °C. The slurry was filtered and washed with IPA (9.41 kg, at approx.4.5 °C). The residue was dried under vacuum with a nitrogen bleed for a period of 11 h and 44 min at a maximum temperature of 44.0 °C to provide an LOD of 0.36%. Yield: 6.58 kg (73.9 %).1H NMR confirms structure. Purity: 97.78 % (HPLC, AUC).

1100 g NaOH dissolved in potable water to a total volume of 1 L; 2 Diluted 500 mL conc. HCl in 2 L total with potable water [00322] A solution of (2R,3R,4R,5R)-2-(4-amino-5-cyano-2-methyl-7H-pyrrolo[2,3- d]pyrimidin-7-yl)-5-((benzoyloxy)methyl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4-diyl dibenzoate and THF was heated to 54 °C and the addition of 2.5 M NaOH was started. The initial addition gave a biphasic mixture and endothermic response (the temperature dropped to 50 °C) but as the addition continued a single phased, clear solution formed which was accompanied by a fast exotherm to 61 °C; the reaction temperature was maintained at 60 °C to 61 °C during the rest of the addition and for an additional 2 ½ h. IPC showed that no (2R,3R,4R,5R)-2-(4-amino-5-cyano-2-methyl- 7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-7-yl)-5-((benzoyloxy)methyl)tetrahydrofuran-3,4-diyl dibenzoate was left.

[00323] The reaction mixture was cooled to 21 °C and neutralized with 3 N HCl with external cooling to pH = 7.06 (Denver Instrument UB-10 pH meter equipped with a Sartorius P- P11 pH electrode, the electrode was checked with buffer solutions of pH = 4.00 and pH = 7.00); the mixture continued to cool to 8°C. The resulting neutralized mixture was distilled under vacuum with a pot temperature of 45 °C to 50 °C until the emergence of solids were observed in the pot. The suspension was cooled and stirred for 2 h at 2 °C. The beige suspension was filtered to afford a dark filtrate; the off-white residue was washed once with cold water (500 mL, 5 °C). A first LOD after 16 h gave a value of 18.73 %. HPLC) of the drying material showed the presence of 1.6% benzoate.

[00324] A brief rework study for compound 1, (containing 1.6% benzoic acid per AUC, HPLC) was executed in 10 vol of water (1 g in 10 mL):

● 3 h slurry at ambient

● 3h slurry at 50 °C

● 24 h slurry at ambient

[00325] All three experiments gave compound 1 with less than 0.1 % benzoic acid (UAC, HPLC). The slurries were fluid, were easily stirred and filtration was fast. Short term drying on the filter gave a powder-like solid indicating that a displacement wash with an organic solvent is not needed. Without wishing to be bound by theory, a loss of NMT than 1% is expected

(solubility 1 mg/mL).HPLC data for compound 1 were obtained with a method suitable for polar compounds using a Zorbax Eclipse Plus C18 column (water / ACN / TFA, 97.5 / 2.5 / 0.05). This is the same column used for steps 1 and 2.

[00326] The cold product suspension was filtered and the reactor and residue were washed with cold IPAc (approx.7.5 °C, 13.16 kg and 13.62 kg) until a colorless filtrate had been obtained. The residue was dried under vacuum and a nitrogen bleed≤ 45 °C for a period of 65 h and 19 min to an LOD of 0 %. Yield: 5.87 kg (70.7 %), 1H NMR confirmed identity; HPLC purity 98.84% (AUC).

https://patentscope2.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf;jsessionid=42BB6AE0DA712D6A9C7C741E97BDE64C?docId=WO2018210255&tab=FULLTEXT&office=&prevFilter=&sortOption=Pub+Date+Desc&queryString=&recNum=889&maxRec=71731866

Binding of epidermal growth factor (EGF) to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activates tyrosine kinase activity and thereby triggers reactions that lead to cellular proliferation. Overexpression and/or overactivity of EGFR could result in uncontrolled cell division which may be a predisposition for cancer. Compounds that inhibit the overexpression and/or overactivity of EGFR are therefore candidates for treating cancer.
The relevant compound 4-ethyl-N- (4- ( (3-ethynylphenyl) amino) -7-methoxyquinazolin-6-yl) piperazine-1-carboxamide of the present invention has the effect of effectively inhibiting the overexpression and/or overactivity of EGFR. Thus, it is useful in treating diseases associated with overexpression and/or overactivity of EGFR, such as the treatment of cancer.
The phenomenon that a compound could exist in two or more crystal structures is known as polymorphism. Many compounds may exist as various polymorph crystals and also in a solid amorphous form. Until polymorphism of a compound is discovered, it is highly unpredictable (1) whether a particular compound will exhibit polymorphism, (2) how to prepare any such unknown polymorphs, and (3) how are the properties, such as stability, of any such unknown polymorphs. See, e.g., J. Bernstein “Polymorphism in Molecular Crystals” , Oxford University Press, (2002)
Since the properties of a solid material depend on the structure as well as on the nature of the compound itself, different solid forms of a compound can and often do exhibit different physical and chemical properties as well as different biopharmaceutical properties. Differences in chemical properties can be determined, analyzed and compared through a variety of analytical techniques. Those differences may ultimately be used to differentiate among different solid forms. Furthermore, differences in physical properties, such as solubility, and biopharmaceutical properties, such as bioavailability, are also of importance when describing the solid state of a pharmaceutical compound. Similarly, in the development of a pharmaceutical compound, e.g., 4-ethyl-N- (4- ( (3-ethynylphenyl) amino) -7-methoxyquinazolin-6-yl) piperazine-1-carboxamide, the new crystalline and amorphous forms of the pharmaceutical compound are also of importance.
The compound 4-ethyl-N- (4- ( (3-ethynylphenyl) amino) -7-methoxyquinazolin-6-yl) piperazine-1-carboxamide as well as the preparation thereof was described in patent CN101619043A.
pon extensive explorations and researchs, we have found that compound 4-ethyl-N- (4- ( (3-ethynylphenyl) amino) -7-methoxyquinazolin-6-yl) piperazine-1-carboxamide can be prepared into succinate salts, the chemical structure of its semisuccinate and monosuccinate being shown by Formula A. Studies have shown that, compared with its free base, the solubility of compound of Formula A is significantly increased, which is beneficial for improving the pharmacokinetic characteristics and in vivo bioavailability of the compound. We have also found that compound of Formula A can exist in different crystalline forms, and can form solvates with certain solvents. We have made extensive studies on the polymorphic forms of compound of Formula A and have finally prepared and determined the polymorphic forms which meet the requirement of pharmaceutical use. Based on these studies, the present invention provides the compound 4-ethyl-N- (4- ( (3-ethynylphenyl) amino) -7-methoxyquinazolin -6-yl) piperazine-1-carboxamide succinate and the various crystalline forms thereof, solvates and the crystalline forms thereof, which are designated as Form I, Form IV and Form V respectively.
The compound 4-ethyl-N- (4- ( (3-ethynylphenyl) amino) -7-methoxyquinazolin-6-yl) piperazine-1-carboxamide raw material used in the examples were prepared according to CN101619043A.

Ciforadenant, also known as CPI-444 and V81444, is an orally administered antagonist of the adenosine A2A receptor. Upon oral administration, CPI-444 binds to adenosine A2A receptors expressed on the surface of immune cells, including T-lymphocytes, natural killer (NK) cells, macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs). This prevents tumor-released adenosine from interacting with the A2A receptors on these key immune surveillance cells, thereby abrogating adenosine-induced immunosuppression in the tumor microenvironment.str1

Ciforadenant is an antagonist of adenosine A2A being developed by Corvus , under license from Vernalis , for the oral treatment of advanced solid tumor; the company is also developing the drug in combination with atezolizumab , for non-small-cell lung cancer.

In 2015, Vernalis licensed the exclusive rights of the product for use of all therapeutic application to Corvus.

EXAMPLES

Reaction Scheme 1

[0314] Referring to Reaction Scheme 1 , the process to manufacture triazolo[4,5]pyramidine derivatives and intermediates thereof in accordance with the present disclosure, such as the compound known as CPI-444, consists of three chemical steps and uses starting materials known as CP-55, CP-56 and CP-60. The intermediate known as CP-57 is formed at step la without isolation (telescoped) and taken to the next step to form the compound known as CP-58 at step lb. Suzuki coupling using CP-60 during step 2 generates crude CPI-444 which undergoes crystallization during step 3 to form CPI-444.

[0315] Previously described processes for making triazolo[4,5]pyramidine derivatives and intermediates thereof utilized a compound known as CP-59:

[0316] Moreover, such previously described process utilize triethylamine which takes a longer time for the layers to separate where excessive rag layer is observed during phase separation. [0317] The present inventors unexpectedly and surpisingly found that the replacement of CP-59 with CP-60 improved ease of handling and improved process efficiency. In addition, the present inventors unexpectedly and surpisingly found that the use of potassium carbonate (K2CO3) during step 2 improves the phase separation and minimizes rag layer formation upon reaction completion. Finally, Step 3 employs the use of thermocycler in order to facilitate the removal of residual solvents such as isopropyl alcohol.

[0318] Accordingly, the processes in accordance with the teachings of the present disclosure are an improvement over, and are more suitable for commercial scale-up, than processes previously described.

[0319] Starting material (C-55) is commercially available through Astatech, Inc., Keystone Business Park, 2525 Pearl Buck Road, Bristol, PA, 19007, USA; or Suven, SDE Serene Chambers, Road No.5, Avenue 7 Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, 500034, India.

THELIATINIB BY HUTCHISON

WO-2018099451

The present invention belongs to the field of pharmacy and provides a crystal form of a compound (3aR,6aR)-N-(4-(3-ethynylphenylamino)-7-methoxyquinazolin-6-yl)-1-methyl-hexahydropyrrolo[3,4-b]pyrrole-5(1H)-carboxamide, a pharmaceutical composition thereof, and a preparation method therefor and the use thereof.
(FR)La présente invention concerne le domaine de la pharmacie et fournit une forme cristalline d’un composé (3aR,6aR)-N-(4-(3-éthynylphénylamino)-7-méthoxyquinazolin-6-yl)-1-méthyl-hexahydropyrrolo[3,4-b]pyrrole-5(1H)-carboxamide, une composition pharmaceutique de celui-ci, et son procédé de préparation et son utilisation.

Novel crystalline forms of the compound presumed to be theliatinib , processes for their preparation and compositions comprising them are claimed. Also claimed is their use for treating lung cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer, ovary cancer, prostate cancer, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, brain cancer, esophageal cancer, bone cancer and leukemia.

Hutchison Medipharma is developing theliatinib, a small molecule EGFR tyrosine kinase and AKT cell proliferation pathway inhibitor, for treating cancer, including brain tumor, esophageal tumor and NSCLC; in September 2017, positive preliminary data were presented. Hutchison is also developing epitinib succinate , for treating cancer including glioblastoma.

Binding of epidermal growth factor (EGF) to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activates tyrosine kinase activity and triggers a response that leads to cell proliferation. Overexpression and/or overactivation of EGFR can lead to uncontrolled cell division, and uncontrolled cell division can be a cause of cancer. Therefore, compounds that inhibit the over-expression and/or over-activation of EGFR are candidates for treating tumors.
Relevant compounds of the present invention (3aR, 6aR)-N-(4-(3-ethynylphenylamino)-7-methoxyquinazolin-6-yl)-1-methyl-hexahydropyrrolo [3, 4-b]pyrrole-5(1H)-carboxamide, whose chemical structure is shown in Formula A, has the effect of effectively inhibiting overexpression and/or overactivation of EGFR. Therefore, it can be used for the treatment of diseases associated with overexpression and/or overactivation of EGFR, such as the treatment of cancer.
Before discovering the crystal form of a compound, it is difficult to predict (1) whether a particular compound exists in crystalline form; (2) how an unknown crystal form is made; (3) what the properties of the crystal form would be, such as stability , bioavailability and so on.
Since the properties of the solid depend on the structure and the nature of the compound itself, different solid forms of the compound often exhibit different physical and chemical properties. Differences in chemical properties can be measured, analyzed, and compared using a variety of analytical techniques that ultimately can be used to distinguish these different solid forms. Differences in physical properties, such as solubility and bioavailability, are also important in describing the solid form of the drug compound. Likewise, in the development of pharmaceutical compounds, such as compounds of Formula A, the new crystalline and amorphous forms of the pharmaceutical compounds are also important.

Patent CN102906086A discloses compound (3aR,6aR)-N-(4-(3-ethynylphenylamino)-7-methoxyquinazolin-6-yl)-1-methyl-hexahydropyrrolo[3 4-b]pyrrole-5(1H)-carboxamide and its preparation method.
