UNII-2AW48LAZ4I, Antineoplastic

In 2014, Geron entered into an exclusive worldwide license and collaboration agreement with Janssen Biotech for the treatment of hematologic cancers. However, in 2018, the agreement was terminated and Geron regained global rights to the product.

In 2015, imetelstat was granted orphan drug status in the U.S. for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome, as well as in both the U.S. and the E.U. for the treatment of myelofibrosis. In 2017, fast track designation was received in the U.S. for the treatment of adult patients with transfusion-dependent anemia due to low or intermediate-1 risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) who are non-del(5q) and who are refractory or resistant to treatment with an erythropoiesis stimulating agent (ESA).

Imetelstat Sodium is the sodium salt of imetelstat, a synthetic lipid-conjugated, 13-mer oligonucleotide N3′ P5′-thio-phosphoramidate with potential antineoplastic activity. Complementary to the template region of telomerase RNA (hTR), imetelstat acts as a competitive enzyme inhibitor that binds and blocks the active site of the enzyme (a telomerase template antagonist), a mechanism of action which differs from that for the antisense oligonucleotide-mediated inhibition of telomerase activity through telomerase mRNA binding. Inhibition of telomerase activity in tumor cells by imetelstat results in telomere shortening, which leads to cell cycle arrest or apoptosis.

Imetelstat sodium, a lipid-based conjugate of Geron’s first-generation anticancer drug, GRN-163, is in phase III clinical trials at Geron for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome, as well as in phase II for the treatment of myelofibrosis. 

Geron is developing imetelstat, a lipid-conjugated 13-mer thiophosphoramidate oligonucleotide and the lead in a series of telomerase inhibitors, for treating hematological malignancies, primarily myelofibrosis.

Imetelstat, a first-in-class telomerase inhibitor and our sole product candidate, is being developed for the potential treatment of hematologic myeloid malignancies. Imetelstat is currently in two clinical trials being conducted by Janssen under the terms of an exclusive  worldwide collaboration and license agreement.

Originally known as GRN163L, imetelstat sodium (imetelstat) is a 13-mer N3’—P5’ thio-phosphoramidate (NPS) oligonucleotide that has a covalently bound 5’ palmitoyl (C16) lipid group. The proprietary nucleic acid backbone provides resistance to the effect of cellular nucleases, thus conferring improved stability in plasma and tissues, as well as significantly improved binding affinity to its target. The lipid group enhances cell permeability to increase potency and improve pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties. The compound has a long residence time in bone marrow, spleen and liver. Imetelstat binds with high affinity to the template region of the RNA component of telomerase, resulting in direct, competitive inhibition of telomerase enzymatic activity, rather than elicit its effect through an antisense inhibition of protein translation. Imetelstat is administered by intravenous infusion.

Preclinical Studies with Imetelstat

A series of preclinical efficacy studies of imetelstat have been conducted by Geron scientists and academic collaborators. These data showed that imetelstat:

  • Inhibits telomerase activity, and can shorten telomeres.
  • Inhibits the proliferation of a wide variety of tumor types, including solid and hematologic, in cell culture systems and rodent xenograft models of human cancers, impacting the growth of primary tumors and reducing metastases.
  • Inhibits the proliferation of malignant progenitor cells from hematologic cancers, such as multiple myeloma, myeloproliferative neoplasms and acute myelogenous leukemia.
  • Has additive or synergistic anti-tumor effect in a variety of cell culture systems and xenograft models when administered in combination with approved anti-cancer therapies, including radiation, conventional chemotherapies and targeted agents.

Clinical Experience with Imetelstat

Over 500 patients have been enrolled and treated in imetelstat clinical trials.

PHASE 1

Six clinical trials evaluated the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics both as a single agent and in combination with standard therapies in patients with solid tumors and hematologic malignancies:

  • Single agent studies of imetelstat were in patients with advanced solid tumors, multiple myeloma and chronic lymphoproliferative diseases. Combination studies with imetelstat were with bortezomib in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma, with paclitaxel and bevacizumab in patients with metastatic breast cancer, and with carboplatin and paclitaxel in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • Doses ranging from 0.5 mg/kg to 11.7 mg/kg were tested in a variety of dosing schedules ranging from weekly to once every 28 days.
  • The human pharmacokinetic profile was characterized in clinical trials of patients with solid tumors and chronic lymphoproliferative diseases. Single-dose kinetics showed dose-dependent increases in exposure with a plasma half-life (t1/2) ranging from 4-5 hours. Residence time in bone marrow is long (0.19-0.51 µM observed at 41-45 hours post 7.5 mg/kg dose).
  • Telomerase inhibition was observed in various tissues where the enzymes’s activity was measurable.

PHASE 2

Imetelstat was studied in two randomized clinical trials, two single arm proof-of-concept studies and an investigator sponsored pilot study:

  • Randomized trials were in combination with paclitaxel in patients with metastatic breast cancer and as maintenance treatment following a platinum-containing chemotherapy regimen in patients with NSCLC.
  • Single arm studies were as a single agent or in combination with lenalidomide in patients with multiple myeloma and as a single agent in essential thrombocythemia (ET) or polycythemia vera (PV).
  • An investigator sponsored pilot study was as a single agent in patients with myelofibrosis (MF) or myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).

SAFETY AND TOLERABILITY

The safety profile of imetelstat across the Phase 1 and 2 trials has been generally consistent. Reported adverse events (AEs) and laboratory investigations associated with imetelstat administration included cytopenias, transient prolonged activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT; assessed only in Phase 1 trials), gastrointestinal symptoms, constitutional symptoms, hepatic biochemistry abnormalities, and infusion reactions. Dose limiting toxicities include thrombocytopenia and neutropenia.

A Focus on Hematologic Myeloid Malignancies

Early clinical data from the Phase 2 clinical trial in ET and the investigator sponsored pilot study in MF suggest imetelstat may have disease-modifying activity by suppressing the proliferation of malignant progenitor cell clones for the underlying diseases, and potentially allowing recovery of normal hematopoiesis in patients with hematologic myeloid malignancies.

Results from these trials were published in the New England Journal of Medicine:

Current Clinical Trials

Imetelstat is currently being tested in two clinical trials: IMbark, a Phase 2 trial in myelofibrosis (MF), and IMerge, a Phase 2/3 trial in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).

IMbark

IMbark is the ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate two doses of imetelstat in intermediate-2 or high-risk MF patients who are refractory to or have relapsed after treatment with a JAK inhibitor.

Internal data reviews were completed in September 2016, April 2017 and March 2018. The safety profile was consistent with prior clinical trials of imetelstat in hematologic malignancies, and no new safety signals were identified. The data supported 9.4 mg/kg as an appropriate starting dose in the trial, but an insufficient number of patients met the protocol defined interim efficacy criteria and new patient enrollment was suspended in October 2016. As of January 2018, median follow up was approximately 19 months, and median overall survival had not been reached in either dosing arm. In March 2018, the trial was closed to new patient enrollment. Patients who remain in the treatment phase of the trial may continue to receive imetelstat, and until the protocol-specified primary analysis, all safety and efficacy assessments are being conducted as planned in the protocol, including following patients, to the extent possible, until death, to enable an assessment of overall survival.

IMerge

IMerge is the ongoing two-part Phase 2/3 clinical trial of imetelstat in red blood cell (RBC) transfusion-dependent patients with lower risk MDS who are refractory or resistant to treatment with an erythropoiesis stimulating agent (ESA). Part 1 is a Phase 2, open-label, single-arm trial of imetelstat administered as a single agent by intravenous infusion, and is ongoing. Part 2 is designed to be a Phase 3, randomized, controlled trial, and has not been initiated.

Preliminary data as of October 2017 from the first 32 patients enrolled in the Part 1 (Phase 2) of IMerge were presented as a poster at the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting in December 2017.

The data showed that among the subset of 13 patients who had not received prior treatment with either lenalidomide or a hypomethylating agent (HMA) and did not have a deletion 5q chromosomal abnormality (non-del(5q)), 54% achieved RBC transfusion-independence (TI) lasting at least 8 weeks, including 31% who achieved a 24-week RBC-TI. In the overall trial population, the rates of 8- and 24-week RBC-TI were 38% and 16%, respectively. Cytopenias, particularly neutropenia and thrombocytopenia, were the most frequently reported adverse events, which were predictable, manageable and reversible.

Based on the preliminary data from the 13-patient subset, Janssen expanded Part 1 of IMerge to enroll approximately 20 additional patients who were naïve to lenalidomide and HMA treatment and non-del(5q) to increase the experience and confirm the benefit-risk profile of imetelstat in this refined target patient population

Patients of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have limited treatment options at diagnosis; treatment typically takes the form of chemotherapy to quickly reduce the leukemic cell burden. Invasive leukapheresis procedures to remove large numbers of leukocytes (normal and diseased) may be applied in parallel to chemotherapy to temporarily lower tumor cell burden. Induction phase chemotherapy can be successful but, most healthy cells residing in patient bone marrow are also killed, causing illness and requiring additional palliative therapy to ward off infection and raise leukocyte counts. Additional rounds of chemotherapy can be used in an attempt to keep patients in remission; but relapse is common.

[0005] Telomerase is present in over 90% of tumors across all cancer types; and is lacking in normal, healthy tissues. Imetelstat sodium is a novel, first-in-class telomerase inhibitor that is a covalently-lipidated 13-mer oligonucleotide (shown below) complimentary to the human telomerase RNA (hTR) template region. Imetelstat sodium does not function through an anti-sense mechanism and therefore lacks the side effects commonly observed with such therapies. Imetelstat sodium is the sodium salt of imetelstat (shown below):

Unless otherwise indicated or clear from the context, references below to imetelstat also include salts thereof. As mentioned above, imetelstat sodium in particular is the sodium salt of imetelstat.

[0006] ABT-199/venetoclax (trade name Venclexta) is an FDA approved Bcl-2 inhibitor for use in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients with dell7p who are relapsed/refractory. ABT-199 is also known as ABT 199, GDC0199, GDC-0199 or RG7601. The chemical name for ABT-199 is 4-[4-[[2-(4-chlorophenyl)-4,4-dimethylcyclohexen-l-yl]methyl]piperazin-l-yl]-N-[3-nitro-4-(oxan-4-ylmethylamino)phenyl]sulfonyl-2-(lH-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridin-5-yloxy)benzamide (Cas No. 1257044-40-8). Unless otherwise indicated or clear from the context, references below to ABT-199 also include pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof. Specifically in the Examples however, ABT-199 was used in the free base form.

[0007] ABT-199, shown below in the free base form, is highly specific to Bcl-2, unlike other first generation inhibitors which show affinity for related Bel family members and induce greater side effects. Inhibition of Bcl-2 blocks the pro-apoptotic signals caused by damage to or abnormalities within cellular DNA and ultimately leads to programmed cell death in treated cells via the caspase cascade and apoptosis through the intrinsic pathway.

Improved process for preparing imetelstat .  claiming use of a combination comprising a telomerase inhibitor, specifically imetelstat sodium and a Bcl-2 inhibitor, specifically ABT-199 for treating hematological cancer such as acute myeloid leukemia, essential thrombocythemia and polycythemia vera, specifically acute myeloid leukemia.

Imetelstat (SEQ ID NO: 1 ) is a N3′- P5′ thiophosphoramidate oligonucleotide covalently linked to a palmitoyl lipid moiety and has been described in WO-2005/023994 as compound (1 F). The sodium salt of imetelstat acts as a potent and specific telomerase inhibitor and can be used to treat telomerase-mediated disorders, e.g. cancer, including disorders such as myelofibrosis (MF), myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myelogenous leukemia (AML).

It is understood that all tautomeric forms of a subject compound are encompassed by a structure where one possible tautomeric form of the compound is described, even if not specifically indicated.

Prior art

The synthetic scheme used in WO-2005/023994 to prepare imetelstat as compound (1 F) is described in Scheme 1 and Scheme 2. The synthesis of this oligonucleotide is achieved using the solid-phase phosphoramidite methodology with all reactions taking place on solid-phase support. The synthesis of imetelstat is carried out on controlled pore glass (LCAA-CPG) loaded with

3-palmitoylamido-1-0-(4, 4′-dimethoxytrityl)-2-0-succinyl propanediol. The oligonucleotide is assembled from the 5′ to the 3′ terminus by the addition of protected nucleoside 5′-phosphor-amidites with the assistance of an activator. Each elongation cycle consists of 4 distinct, highly controlled steps : deprotection, amidite coupling, sulfurization and a capping step.

Scheme 1 : imetelstat synthetic scheme cycle 1

3. Sulfurization

In Scheme 1 the solid-phase supported synthesis starts with removal of the acid-labile 4,4-dimethoxy-trityl (DMT) protecting group from the palmitoylamidopropanediol linked to the solid-phase support. The first phosphoramidite nucleotide is coupled to the support followed by sulfurization of the phosphor using a 0.1 M solution of phenylacetyl disulfide (PADS) in a mixture of acetonitrile and 2,6-lutidine (1 : 1 ratio). Then a capping step is applied to prevent any unreacted solid-phase support starting material from coupling with a phosphoramidite nucleotide in the following reaction cycles. Capping is done using an 18:1 :1 mixture of THF / isobutyric anhydride / 2,6-lutidine.

After the first cycle on the solid-phase support, chain elongation is achieved by reaction of the 3′-amino group of the support-bound oligonucleotide with an excess of a solution of the protected nucleotide phosphoramidite monomer corresponding to the next required nucleotide in the sequence as depicted in Scheme 2.

Scheme 2 : imetelstat synthetic scheme cycle 2-13

In Scheme 2 the first cycle is depicted of the chain elongation process which is achieved by deprotection of the 3′-amino group of the support-bound oligonucleotide (a), followed by a coupling reaction of the 3′-amino group of the support-bound oligonucleotide (b) with an excess of a solution of a 5′-phosphoramidite monomer corresponding to the next required nucleotide in the sequence of imetelstat. The coupling reaction is followed by sulfurization of the phosphor of the support-bound oligonucleotide (c) and a capping step (see Scheme 3) to prevent any unreacted solid-phase support starting material (b) from coupling with a 5′-phosphoramidite nucleotide in the following reaction cycles. The reaction cycle of Scheme 2 is repeated 12 times before the solid-phase support-bound oligonucleotide is treated with a 1 :1 mixture of ethanol and concentrated ammonia, followed by HPLC purification to obtain imetelstat.

Scheme 3

The capping step using an 18:1 : 1 mixture of THF / isobutyric anhydride / 2,6-lutidine is done to convert after the coupling step any remaining solid-phase support bound oligonucleotide (b) with a primary 3′-amino group into oligonucleotide (e) with a protected (or ‘capped’) 3′-amino group in order to prevent the primary 3′-amino group from coupling with a phosphoramidite nucleotide in the next reaction cycles.

WO-01/18015 discloses in Example 3 with SEQ ID No. 2 a N3’^P5′ thiophosphoramidate oligonucleotide and a process for preparing this oligonucleotide encompassing a capping step.

Herbert B-S et al. discusses the lipid modification of GRN163 (Oncogene (2005) 24, 5262-5268).

Makiko Horie et al. discusses the synthesis and properties of 2′-0,4′-C-ethylene-bridged nucleic acid oligonucleotides targeted to human telomerase RNA subunit (Nucleic Acids Symposium Series (2005) 49, 171-172).

Description of the invention

The coupling reaction in the solid-phase support bound process disclosed in WO-01/18015 and WO-2005/023994 include a capping step to prevent any unreacted primary 3′ amino groups on the support-bound oligonucleotide from reacting during subsequent cycles.

It has now surprisingly been found that the use of a capping step as described in the prior art is superfluous and that imetelstat can be prepared using a 3-step cycle without an additional capping step with nearly identical yield and purity compared to the prior art 4-step cycle that uses a specific capping step. Eliminating the capping step from each cycle benefits the overall process by reducing the number of cycle steps by 22% (from 54 to 42 steps) and consequent reduction of process time. Also, the solvent consumption is reduced due to the reduction of cycle steps which makes for a greener process.

Wherever the term “capping step” is used throughout this text, it is intended to define an additional chemical process step wherein the primary free 3′-amino group on the solid-phase support bound oligonucleotide is converted into a substituted secondary or tertiary 3′-amino group that is not capable of participating in the coupling reaction with a protected 3′-aminonucleoside-5′-0-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropylamino-phosphoramidite monomer in the ensuing coupling step.

The protected 3′-aminonucleoside-5′-0-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropylaminophosphoramidite monomers of formula (B n) have a 3′-amino protecting group PG which is an acid-labile group, such as triphenylmethyl (i.e. trityl or Tr), p-anisyldiphenylmethyl (i.e. monomethoxytrityl or MMT), or di-p-anisylphenylmethyl (i.e. dimethoxytrityl or DMT). Furthermore the nucleoside base B’ is protected with a base-labile protecting group (except for thymine).

B’s = protected A G = guanine

B’g = protected G C = cytosine

The nucleotide monomers and B’2 to B’13 are used successively in the 13 coupling steps starting from the provision of a solid-phase support loaded with 3-palmitoylamido-1-0-(4, 4′-dimethoxytrityl)-2-0-succinyl propanediol and coupled to nucleotide monomer and the following cycle of 12 deprotection, coupling, and sulfurization reactions wherein the nucleotide monomers B’2 to B -I 3 are used.

The 3′-amino protecting group PG can be removed by treatment with an acidic solution such as e.g. dichloroacetic acid in dichloromethane or toluene.

The nucleoside base B’ in the protected 3′-aminonucleoside-5′-0-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropyl-aminophosphoramidite monomers of formula (B n) is protected with a base-labile protecting group which is removed in step g). Suitable base-labile protecting groups for the nucleoside base adenine, cytosine or guanine are e.g. acyl groups such as acetyl, benzoyl, isobutyryl, dimethyl-formamidinyl, or dibenzylformamidinyl. Under the reaction conditions used in oligonucleotide synthesis the thymine nucleoside base does not require protection. Such protected 3′- amino-nucleoside-5′-0-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropylaminophosphoramidite monomers of formula (B N) having a 3′-amino protected with an acid-labile group protecting group PG and a nucleoside base B’ protected with a base-labile protecting group are commercially available or can be prepared as described in WO-2006/014387.

The coupling step c) is performed by adding a solution of protected 3′-aminonucleoside-5′-0-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropylaminophosphoramidite monomer of formula (BN) and a solution of an activator (or a solution containing the phosphoramidite monomer (BN) and the activator) to the reaction vessel containing the free amino group of an (oligo)nucleotide covalently attached to a solid support. The mixture is then mixed by such methods as mechanically vortexing, sparging with an inert gas, etc. Alternately, the solution(s) of monomer and activator can be made to flow through a reaction vessel (or column) containing the solid-phase supported (oligo)nucleotide with a free 3′-amino group. The monomer and the activator either can be premixed, mixed in the valve-block of a suitable synthesizer, mixed in a pre-activation vessel and preequilibrated if desired, or they can be added separately to the reaction vessel.

Examples of activators for use in the invention are, but not limited to, tetrazole, 5-(ethylthio)-1 H-tetrazole, 5-(4-nitro-phenyl)tetrazole, 5-(2-thienyl)-1 H-tetrazole, triazole, pyridinium chloride, and the like. Suitable solvents are acetonitrile, tetrahydrofuran, dichloromethane, and the like. In practice acetonitrile is a commonly used solvent for oligonucleotide synthesis.

The sulfurization agent for use in step d) is an acyl disulfide dissolved in a solvent. Art know acyl disulfides are e.g. dibenzoyl disulphide, bis(phenylacetyl) disulfide (PADS), bis(4-methoxybenzoyl) disulphide, bis(4-methylbenzoyl) disulphide, bis(4-nitrobenzoyl) disulphide and bis(4-chlorobenzoyl) disulfide.

Phenylacetyl disulfide (PADS) is a commonly used agent for sulfurization reactions that it is best ‘aged’ in a basic solution to obtain optimal sulfurization activity (Scotson J.L. et al., Org. Biomol. Chem., vol. 14, 10840 – 10847, 2016). A suitable solvent for PADS is e.g. a mixture of a basic solvent such as e.g. 3-picoline or 2,6-lutidine with a co-solvent such as acetonitrile, toluene, 1-methyl-pyrrolidinone or tetrahydrofuran. The amount of the basic solvent to the amount of the co-solvent can be any ratio including a 1 :1 ratio. Depending upon the phosphite ester to be converted into its corresponding thiophospate, both ‘fresh’ and ‘aged’ PADS can be used however ‘aged’ PADS has been shown to improve the rate and efficiency of sulfurization. ‘Aged’ PADS solutions are freshly prepared PADS solutions that were maintained some time before usage in the sulfurization reaction. Aging times can vary from a few hours to 48 hours and the skilled person can determine the optimal aging time by analysing the sulfurization reaction for yield and purity.

For the preparation of imetelstat in accordance with the present invention, a PADS solution in a mixture of acetonitrile and 2,6-lutidine, preferably in a 1 :1 ratio, with an aging time of 4 to 14 hours is used. It has been found that when 2,6-lutidine is used, limiting the amount of 2,3,5-collidine (which is often found as an impurity in 2,6-lutidine) below 0.1 % improves the efficiency of sulfurization and less undesirable phosphor oxidation is observed.

In step g) imetelstat is deprotected and cleaved from the solid-phase support. Deprotection includes the removal of the β-cyanoethyl groups and the base-labile protecting groups on the nucleotide bases. This can be done by treatment with a basic solution such as a diethylamine (DEA) solution in acetonitrile, followed by treatment with aqueous ammonia dissolved in an alcohol such as ethanol.

The reaction steps a) to f) of the present invention are carried out in the temperature range of 10°C to 40°C. More preferably, these reactions are carried out at a controlled temperature ranging from 15°C to 30°C. In particular reaction step b) of the present invention is carried out in the temperature range of 15°C to 30°C; more in particular 17°C to 27°C. In particular reaction step d) of the present invention is carried out in the temperature range of 17°C to 25°C; more in particular 18°C to 22°C; even more in particular 19°C. The step g) wherein imetelstat is deprotected and cleaved from the solid-phase support is carried out at a temperature ranging from 30°C to 60°C. Depending upon the equipment and the specific reaction conditions used, the optimal reaction temperature for each step a) to g) within the above stated ranges can be determined by the skilled person.

After each step in the elongation cycle, the solid-phase support is rinsed with a solvent, for instance acetonitrile, in preparation for the next reaction.

After step g), crude imetelstat is obtained in its ammonium salt form which is then purified by a preparative reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) by using either polymeric or silica based resins to get purified imetelstat in triethyl amine form. An excess of a sodium salt is added, and then the solution is desalted by diafiltration thereby yielding imetelstat sodium which is then lyophilized to remove water.

Experimental part

‘Room temperature’ or ‘ambient temperature’ typically is between 21-25 °C.

Experiment 1 (no capping step)

All the reagents and starting material solutions were prepared including 3% dichloroacetic acid (DCA) in toluene, 0.5 M 5-(ethylthio)-1 H-tetrazole in acetonitrile, 0.15 M of all 4 nucleotide monomers of formula (B n) in acetonitrile, 0.2 M phenyl acetyl disulfide (PADS) in a 1 :1 mixture of acetonitrile and 2,6-lutidine and 20% DEA (diethylamine) in acetonitrile.

The oligonucleotide synthesis was performed in the direction of 5′ to 3′ utilizing a repetitive synthesis cycle consisting of detritylation followed by coupling, and sulfurization performed at ambient temperature.

A column (diameter : 3.5 cm) was packed with a solid-support loaded with 3-palmitoylamido-1-0- (4, 4′-dimethoxytrityl)-2-0-succinyl propanediol (3.5 mmol based on a capacity of 400 μιηοΙ/g) that was coupled with the nucleotide monomer B Detritylation was achieved using 3% dichloroacetic acid (DCA) in toluene (amount is between 6.5 and 13.4 column volumes in each detritylation step) and the solid-support bound nucleotide was washed with acetonitrile (amount: 5 column volumes). Coupling with the next nucleotide monomer of formula (B n) was achieved by pumping a solution of 0.5 M 5-(ethylthio)-1 H-tetrazole in acetonitrile and 0.15 M of the next nucleotide monomer of formula (B n) in the sequence, dissolved in acetonitrile, through the column. The column was washed with acetonitrile (amount : 2 column volumes). Then sulfurization was performed by

pumping a solution of 0.2 M phenyl acetyl disulfide (PADS) in a 1 :1 mixture of acetonitrile and 2,6-lutidine mixture through the column followed by washing the column with acetonitrile (amount : 5 column volumes).

The synthesis cycle of detritylation, coupling with the next nucleotide monomer of formula (B n) and sulfurization was repeated 12 times, followed by detritylation using 3% dichloroacetic acid (DCA) in toluene (amount is between 6.5 and 13.4 column volumes).

Upon completion of the synthesis cycle, the crude oligonucleotide on the solid-support support was treated with a diethylamine (DEA) solution followed by treatment with ammonium hydroxide solution: ethanol (3: 1 volume ratio) at a temperature of 55°C. The reaction mixture was aged for

4 to 24 hours at 55°C, cooled to room temperature, and slurry was filtered to remove the polymeric support. The solution comprising imetelstat in its ammonium form was subjected to the HPLC analysis procedure of Experiment 3.

Experiment 2 (with capping step)

All the reagents and starting material solutions were prepared including 3% dichloroacetic acid (DCA) in toluene, 0.5 M 5-(ethylthio)-1 H-tetrazole in acetonitrile, 0.15 M of all 4 nucleotide monomers of formula (B n) in acetonitrile, 0.2 M phenyl acetyl disulfide (PADS) in a 1 :1 mixture of acetonitrile and 2,6-lutidine mixture, 20% N-methylimidazole (NMI) in acetonitrile as capping agent A, isobutryic anhydride in a 1 :1 mixture of acetonitrile and 2,6-lutidine mixture as capping agent B and 20% DEA in acetonitrile.

The oligonucleotide synthesis was performed in the direction of 5′ to 3′ utilizing a repetitive synthesis cycle consisting of detritylation followed by coupling, and sulfurization performed at ambient temperature.

A column (diameter : 3.5 cm) was packed with a solid-support loaded with 3-palmitoylamido-1-0-(4, 4′-dimethoxytrityl)-2-0-succinyl propanediol (3.5 mmol based on a capacity of 400 μιηοΙ/g) that was coupled with the nucleotide monomer B Detritylation was achieved using 3% dichloroacetic acid (DCA) in toluene (amount is between 6.5 and 13.4 column volumes in each detritylation step) and the solid-support bound nucleotide was washed with acetonitrile (amount : 5 column volumes). Coupling with the next nucleotide monomer of formula (B n) was achieved by pumping a solution of 0.5 M 5-(ethylthio)-1 H-tetrazole in acetonitrile and 0.15 M of the next nucleotide monomer of formula (B n) in the sequence, dissolved in acetonitrile, through the column. The column was washed with acetonitrile (amount : 2 column volumes). Then sulfurization was performed by pumping a solution of 0.2 M phenyl acetyl disulfide (PADS) in a 1 :1 mixture of acetonitrile and 2,6-lutidine mixture through the column followed by washing the column with acetonitrile (amount :

5 column volumes).

The sulfurization was followed by a capping step. Each capping in a given cycle used 37-47 equivalents (eq.) of the capping agent NMI, and 9-1 1 equivalents of the capping agent B isobutryic anhydride (IBA), and 1 .4-1.8 equivalents of 2,6 lutidine. Capping agents A and B were pumped through the column with separate pumps at different ratios such as 50:50, 35:65, 65:35.

The synthesis cycle of detritylation, coupling with the next nucleotide monomer of formula (B n) and sulfurization, and capping step was repeated 12 times, followed by detritylation using 3% dichloroacetic acid (DCA) in toluene (amount is between 6.5 and 13.4 column volumes).

Upon completion of the synthesis cycle, the crude oligonucleotide on the solid-support support was treated with a diethylamine (DEA) solution followed by treatment with ammonium hydroxide solution: ethanol (3: 1 volume ratio) at a temperature of 55°C. The reaction mixture was aged for 4 to 24 hours at 55°C, cooled to room temperature, and slurry was filtered to remove the polymeric support. The solution comprising imetelstat in its ammonium form was subjected to the HPLC analysis procedure of Experiment 3.

Experiment 3 : comparision of no-capping vs. capping

Imetelstat obtained in Experiment 1 and Experiment 2 was analysed by HPLC. The amount of the desired full length oligonucleotide having 13 nucleotides was determined and listed in the Table below for Experiment 1 and Experiment 2. Also, the total amount of shortmer, specifically the 12mer, was determined and listed in the Table below for Experiment 1 and Experiment 2.

Table : capping vs. no-capping experiments (Experiment 1 was run twice and results are listed as Experiment 1a and 1 b).

The HPLC analysis of Experiment 1 and Experiment 2 demonstrates that yield and purity are comparable for the no-capping experiment vs. the capping experiment.

Main peak % includes Full length oligonucleotide + PO impurities + depurinated impurities.

PO impurities are impurities including one or more oxophosphoramidate internucleoside linkages instead of thiophosphoramidate internucleoside linkages.

Solvent use and reaction time

0.45 L of acetonitrile/mmol is used to prepare capping agent A and capping agent B reagents which corresponds to approximately 25 % of the overall acetonitrile use during the preparation of the reagents. Since each chemical reaction step is followed by a solvent wash, after each capping step too, a solvent wash takes place which is equivalent to about 40 column volumes of the solvent. Considering that about 212 column volumes of the solvent wash is done for a given synthesis run, about 19 % of the wash solvent is used for the capping steps. Each capping step takes between 3 – 6 minutes. This corresponds to about 8 % of the overall synthesis time including the 13 cycles and DEA treatment.

Experiment 4 (detritylation temperature)

The detritylation temperature has an impact in terms of controlling n-1 and depurinated impurities. The temperature of the deblocking solution at the entrance of the synthesizer was chosen between 17.5 and 27 °C (at 3.5 mmol scale) and the selected temperature was kept the same for all detritylation steps. The acetonitrile washing was also kept at the same temperature of the deblocking solution. The % depurinated impurities increased linearly with temperature while n-1 was higher at lower temperatures.

Temperature n-1 % Depurinated Impurity %

19 7.6 6.4

22 5.4 8.7

27 5.3 12.3

Experiment 5 (sulfurization step temperature)

In the experiments below, the temperature (RT means room temperature) of the PADS solution used in the sulfurization reactions was tested for the % of less favourable PO impurities (these are impurities where phosphor oxidation occurred instead of sulfurization). Lower temperature results in lower PO %.

Image result for Relugolix

Relugolix has been used in trials studying the treatment of Endometriosis, Prostate Cancer, Uterine Fibroids, and Androgen Deprivation Treatment-naïve Nonmetastatic Prostate Cancer.

Relugolix (developmental code names RVT-601TAK-385) is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist (GnRH antagonist) medication which is under development by Myovant Sciences and Takeda for the treatment of endometriosisuterine fibroids, and prostate cancer.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7] Unlike most other GnRH modulators, but similarly to elagolix, relugolix is a non-peptide and small-molecule compound and is orally active.[6][7] As of July 2018, it is in the pre-registration phase of development for uterine fibroids and is in phase III clinical trials for endometriosis and prostate cancer.[1]

Pharmacology

Pharmacodynamics

Relugolix is a selective antagonist of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (GnRHR) (IC50 = 0.12 nM).[6][7][8]

A single oral administration of relugolix at a dose of 3 mg/kg has been found to suppress luteinizing hormone (LH) levels for more than 24 hours in castrated cynomolgus monkeys, indicating a long duration of action.[6] The drug (80–160 mg/day) has been found to reduce testosterone levels to sustained castrate levels in men with once-daily administration.[8] Lower dosages (10–40 mg/day) are being studied in the treatment of endometriosis and uterine fibroids to achieve partial sex hormone suppression.[4] The reasoning behind partial suppression for these conditions is to reduce the incidence and severity of menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes and to avoid bone mineral density changes caused by estrogen deficiency that can eventually lead to osteoporosis.[4][9]

History

Relugolix was first described in 2004.[10][6] It superseded sufugolix, which was developed by the same group.[6]

Society and culture

Generic names

Relugolix is the generic name of the drug and its INN and USAN.[11] It is also known by its developmental code names RVT-601 and TAK-385.[1][11]

Endometriosis is a common estrogen-dependent gynecological diseases, often occurs in women during their childbearing years, and its mechanism is unclear. Complex and difficult to diagnose the cause of the symptoms of endometriosis is unknown, serious block to the discovery of effective therapies. Currently, endometriosis primarily by laparoscopy diagnosis, and treatment by surgery, or pill, or progesterone receptor agonists of GnRH reduce estrogen levels to control.

Currently the high incidence of endometriosis, Datamonitor 2009 year data show that only two countries, India and China, the number of female patients suffering from endometriosis had more than 68 million (31,288,000 India, China 3753.5 million) passengers, while the national prevalence of the number seven major markets have more than 17 million. Datamonitor expects 2009 to 2018, endometriosis market from 2009 to $ 764 million (US $ 596 billion and the EU $ 117 million, Japan US $ 051 million) in 2018 increased to US $ 1.156 billion (US 8.44 billion dollars, 206 million US dollars the European Union, Japan $ 106 million), while the Chinese market will have more room for growth.

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (Gonadoliberin; gonadotropin releasing hormone; GnRH), also known as luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH), is synthesized by neuroendocrine cells of the hypothalamus hormones decapeptide (pGlu-His-Trp-Ser-Tyr-Gly- Leu-Arg-Pro-Gly-NH2), a central regulator of reproductive endocrine system. Which conveys the circulatory system through hypothalamus-pituitary portal to the pituitary, bind to the cells of the anterior pituitary GnRH receptor, such as gonadotropin luteinizing hormone (Luteinizing Hormone, LH) and FSH (Follicle-Stimulating Hormone, FSH ) secretion and release, regulation of normal development and corpus luteum of the ovary, hypothalamic – pituitary – gonadal axis plays an important role. GnRH receptors capable of activating the G protein coupled calcium phosphatidylinositol second messenger system exert their regulatory role, and LH is adjusted to produce steroids, FSH regulating development of the male and female follicle spermatogenesis.

LH and FSH are released into the circulation, and combined with the ovaries or testes specific cell receptors, stimulating the production of steroids. The presence of sex steroids, diseases such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, prostate cancer and exacerbations, to be given long-acting GnRH receptor agonists and antagonists for treatment control peptides.

Peptide GnRH receptor antagonists include linear peptides (US 5,171,835) GnRH-derived, cyclic hexapeptide derivatives (US 2002/0065309), a bicyclic peptide derivative (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 1993; 36: 3265-73), etc. ; and GnRH receptor peptide agonists include leuprolide (leuprorelin, pGlu-His-Trp-Ser-Tyr-d-Leu-Leu-Arg-Pro-NHEt). However, there are many problems including oral absorbability, dosage form, dose volume, drug stability, sustained action, and metabolic stability of the peptide-type compound to be resolved. But the main reason small molecule GnRH receptor antagonists of peptide-based therapy is superior to the existing method is that small molecule GnRH receptor antagonist may be orally administered directly, convenient. Studies have shown that small molecule antagonists of endometriosis, precocious puberty, prostate cancer and other hormone-dependent diseases having a significant effect.

GnRH receptor agonist mediated indirect mechanisms of tumor suppression by long-term effects on the hypothalamic – pituitary – gonadal axis, leading to pituitary gonadotropins (FSH, LH) is reduced, thereby reducing the secretion of sex hormones and indirectly inhibit growth of tumor cells. And a GnRH receptor antagonist directly to inhibit the release of the pituitary gonadotropins, thereby inhibiting tumor cell growth.

Given the limitations of peptide GnRH receptor antagonists, non-peptide GnRH receptor antagonists have been proposed and into the development, clinical trials and launch phase, such as Elagolix (NBI-56418, or also known as ABT-620) is a Abbott and Neurocrine Biosciences Inc company co-developed small molecule GnRH receptor antagonist, is currently in phase III clinical stage, mainly used in the treatment of endometriosis (III phase) and uterine fibroids (II period). June 2012, data released results of a Phase II clinical endometrial endometriosis Houston, the 94th annual meeting of the Endocrine Society: 131 accepts elagolix (150 or 250mg qd), leuprorelin depot (3.75mg sc in, once a month, female patients with endometriosis endometrium 12 weeks) or placebo treatment, elagolix treatment groups in patients with serum hormone estrogen compared to leuprorelin therapy group and the placebo group was significantly reduced. At the same time, elagolix safety and tolerability have been well verified.

Relugolix also known as TAK-385, is a GnRH by the Japanese Takada Pharmaceutical company developed an oral small molecule receptor antagonist, for the treatment of endometriosis, uterine fibroids and prostate. 2011 entered endometriosis and uterine fibroids clinical phase II study, carried out a clinical study of prostate cancer in the same year.

It disclosed a series of current small molecule GnRH receptor antagonists including patent WO2006096785, WO2010026993, WO2011076687, WO2012175514 like.

Despite the large number of interesting studies have been conducted in this field, there remains a need to continue research and development of more effective small molecule GnRH receptor antagonists, the present invention provides a novel GnRH receptor antagonist structure, and found to have such a structure compounds having good activity, reproductive endocrine system effective to treat the disease.

Omecamtiv mecarbil (INN), previously referred to as CK-1827452, is a cardiac-specific myosin activator. It is being studied for a potential role in the treatment of left ventricular systolic heart failure.[1]

Systolic heart failure involves a loss of effective actin-myosin cross bridges in the myocytes (heart muscle cells) of the left ventricle, which leads to a decreased ability of the heart to move blood through the body. This causes peripheral edema (blood pooling), which the sympathetic nervous system tries to correct[2] by overstimulating the cardiac myocytes, leading to left ventricular hypertrophy, another characteristic of chronic heart failure.

Current inotropic therapies work by increasing the force of cardiac contraction, such as through calcium conduction or modulating adrenoreceptors. But these are limited by adverse events, including arrhythmias related to increased myocardical oxygen consumption, desensitization of adrenergic receptors, and altering intracellular calcium levels.[3] Inotropes are also thought to be associated with worse prognosis.[4] Therefore, the novel mechanism of omecamtiv mecarbil may offer a useful new option for heart failure.

Mechanism of action

Cardiac myocytes contract through a cross-bridge cycle between the myofilaments, actin and myosin. Chemical energy in the form of ATP is converted into mechanical energy which allows myosin to strongly bind to actin and produce a power stroke resulting in sarcomere shortening/contraction.[5] Omecamtiv mecarbil specifically targets and activates myocardial ATPase and improves energy utilization. This enhances effective myosin cross-bridge formation and duration, while the velocity of contraction remains the same.[6]Specifically, it increases the rate of phosphate release from myosin, thereby accelerating the rate-determining step of the cross-bridge cycle, which is the transition of the actin-myosin complex from the weakly bound to the strongly bound state.[7][1] Furthermore, once myosin is bound to actin, it stays bound dramatically longer in the presence of omecamtiv mecarbil.[8][9] The combination of increased and prolonged cross-bridge formation prolongs myocardial contraction. Thus, the overall clinical result of omecamtiv mecarbil is an increase in left ventricular systolic ejection time and ejection fraction.[6][7]

There is a slight decrease in heart rate while myocardial oxygen consumption is unaffected. The increased cardiac output is independent of intracellular calcium and cAMP levels.[3][10] Thus omecamtiv mecarbil improves systolic function by increasing the systolic ejection duration and stroke volume, without consuming more ATP energy, oxygen or altering intracellular calcium levels causing an overall improvement in cardiac efficiency.[6]

Clinical trials

Experimental studies on rats and dogs, proved the efficacy and mechanism of action of omecamtiv mecarbil.[3] Current clinical studies on humans have shown there is a direct linear relationship between dose and systolic ejection time.[1][11][12] The dose-dependent effects persisted throughout the entire trial, suggesting that desensitization does not occur. The maximum tolerated dose was observed to be an infusion of 0.5 mg/kg/h. Adverse effects, such as ischemia, were only seen at doses beyond this level, due to extreme lengthening of systolic ejection time.[1] Thus due to the unique cardiac myosin activation mechanism, omecamtiv mecarbil could safely improve cardiac function within tolerated doses. Omecamtiv mecarbil effectively relieves symptoms and enhances the quality of life of systolic heart failure patients. It drastically improves cardiac performance in the short term; however, the hopeful long-term effects of reduced mortality have yet to be studied.[1][2]

[0043] Thus, provided herein is a method of synthesizing PIPA comprising admixing PIPN (which can comprise PIPN hydrochloride salt), an aqueous solution of an inorganic base, and toluene to form a PIPN freebase solution. The inorganic base can be sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydroxide, for example. In some embodiments, the inorganic base comprises sodium hydroxide. The PIPN freebase solution is then hydrogenated in the presence of a palladium catalyst in toluene and an alcohol solvent to form crude PIPA. The alcohol solvent can comprise ethanol or isopropanol. PIPA is then crystallized from a heptane and toluene solvent mixture.

[0044] In some specific embodiments, to a mixture of 1 equiv. PIPN-HCI and toluene (4V) is added 1 M aq. NaOH (3.3V) at 20 °C. Stirring is continued for 1 hour before the phases are separated. The organic layer is washed twice with a mixture of water (2.4V) and saturated brine (0.6V), then the organic layer is distilled to 3.8V. The solution is filtered, the reactor rinsed with toluene (1V) and the rinse solution filtered before the organic layers are combined. To the toluene layer is added Pd/C (0.7 wt%) and the heterogeneous mixture is charged into a hydrogenation vessel. Ethanol (1V) is added to the mixture. Hydrogenation is performed at 20 °C under 60 psig of hydrogen. After the reaction is complete, the mixture is filtered and rinsed with toluene (1V). The mixture is distilled to 2.4V, seeded with 1 mol% PIPA in heptane (0.1V) at 35 °C and then cooled to 20 °C. The addition of heptane (5.6V) is completed in 3 hours. The mixture is filtered and dried under vacuum and nitrogen to afford PIPA (90% yield, > 97.0 wt%, > 98.0 LCAP).

[0045] In some other specific embodiments, 1 N aqueous sodium hydroxide (3.3 volumes) is added to 1 equiv. of PIPN (hydrochloride salt) suspended in toluene (4 volumes). The biphasic mixture is agitated at 20 °C for 1 hour and the phases are allowed to separate. The organic layer is washed twice with a 0.9 M aqueous sodium chloride solution (3 volumes). The reaction mixture is azeotropically dried by concentration to approximately 3.8 volumes and polish filtered. The transfer line is rinsed with toluene (1 volume) and the rinse solution is combined with the PIPN solution.

Ethanol (1 volume) is added to the PIPN solution and hydrogenation of the starting material is carried out in the presence of 5% Pd/C (on activated carbon sold by BASF as Escat 1421, 0.7 wt% catalyst loading) using a pressure of 4 bars of hydrogen at 15 °C. Upon reaction completion, the mixture is filtered. The hydrogenation autoclave and filtered catalyst are rinsed with toluene (1V) and the rinse solution is combined with the reaction mixture. The solution is concentrated to 2.4 volumes and seeded with 1 mol% PIPA in heptane (0.1 volume) at 38 °C. The mixture is agitated for 30 minutes at 38 °C, cooled to 20 °C over the course of 2 hours, and agitated at that temperature for 30 minutes. Heptane is added (5.6 volumes) over the course of 3 hours and the mixture is agitated for 30 minutes. The mixture is filtered and dried on filter/drier. The cake is washed once with

heptane:toluene (7:3, 2 total volumes) and once with heptane (2 volumes). PIPA is isolated in 88% yield with > 98.0 wt% assay and > 98.0 LC area%.

[0046] Preparation of omecamtiv mecarbil dihvdrochloride hydrate: The prior process to prepare omecamtiv mecarbil dihydrochloride hydrate involved a telescoped procedure by which the

omecamtiv mecarbil is prepared as a solution in THF, and the solvent is subsequently exchanged for isopropanol. However, considering that the solubility of omecamtiv mecarbil in isopropanol at 20°C is about 10 mg/mL and the total volume of isopropanol at the end of the solvent exchange, 95% of the material is out of solution at the end of the solvent exchange, leading to the formation of a slurry that is difficult or impossible to stir. Distillation can no longer be performed once this slurry is formed due to poor mass transfer, leaving behind THF levels in the slurry that are above the in-process control (IPC) specification, e.g., greater than or equal to 1 GC area%. In practice, this leads to delays in the manufacturing due to necessary recharging of isopropanol until the mixture can be stirred, followed by additional distillation and analysis of residual THF. In addition, the ratio of isopropanol and water has to be verified using an in-process control considering the variable amounts of isopropanol at the end of the distillation and the influence of the solvent ratio (isopropanol/water) on the mother liquor losses upon filtration.

95% yield

[0048] Thus, provided herein is a method of preparing omecamtiv mecarbil dihydrochloride hydrate via admixing PIPA, PCAR, and a trialkylamine (e.g., triethylamine or diisopropylethylamine) in acetonitrile and THF to form omecamtiv mecarbil. The omecamtiv mecarbil is isolated as the free base and then admixed with 2 to 3 molar equivalents of hydrochloric acid in isopropanol and water to form omecamtiv mecarbil dihydrochloride hydrate, which can optionally be crystallized from isopropanol and water. Isolation of the omecamtiv mecarbil free base can be performed via crystallization by addition of water and filtration. PIPA and PCAR can be prepared as disclosed above.

[0049] In some embodiments, PIPA (2.1 kg, 1 equiv) is charged to a reactor, followed by PCAR (1.1 equiv), then THF (2.5 V), and finally acetonitrile (2.5 V). To the resulting slurry is added N,N-diisopropylethylamine (1.2 equiv) and the batch is heated to 55 °C for 16 h. Water (5 V) is then added over 15 minutes and omecamtiv mecarbil freebase seeds (0.05 equiv) are charged to the reactor. The batch is agitated for 15 minutes and water (10 V) is added over 3 h. The batch is cooled to 20 °C over 1 h and filtered. The cake is washed with 3:1 watenacetonitrile (3 V) and then acetonitrile (3 x 3 V). The cake is dried in a filter/drier. Omecamtiv mecarbil freebase is isolated as a solid in 80% yield, with 99.9 LC area%, and 99.3 wt% assay.

[0050] Omecamtiv mecarbil freebase (2.6 kg, 1 equiv) is charged to a reactor followed by 2-propanol (2.6 V) and water (1.53 V). The batch is then heated to 45 °C. 6 M aqueous HCI (2.2 equiv) is added at a rate to keep batch temperature below 60 °C. The batch is heated to 60 °C for 30 minutes and filtered into a clean reactor at 60 °C. The original vessel is rinsed with an

isopropanokwater mixture (1 :1 , 0.1 volume total) and the rinse volume is added to the reaction mixture. The solution is cooled to 45 °C and a slurry of omecamtiv mecarbil dihydrochloride hydrate seed (0.05 or 0.03 equiv) in isopropanol (0.14 or 0.1 V) is charged to the reactor. The suspension is agitated for 1 h. Isopropanol (3.68 V) is charged to the reactor over 2 h. The mixture is warmed to 55 °C over 1 h and held for 30 minutes at that temperature. The mixture is cooled to 45 °C over 1 h. The mixture is agitated for 2 h and then isopropanol (7.37 V) is added to the reactor over 3 h. The mixture is agitated for 1 h and then cooled to 20 °C over 2 h. The mixture is wet milled until d90 specifications are met (e.g., < 110 μιτι) and the suspension is filtered. The wet cake is washed twice with isopropanokwater (95:5, 2V) . The wet cake is dried under vacuum until isopropanol levels are below 1000 ppm. The cake is optionally re-hydrated if necessary using e.g., a stream of humidified nitrogen, until the water content of the solids are between 3.0 and 4.2 wt%. The material can be recrystallized if it doesn’t meet specification. Omecamtiv mecarbil dihydrochloride hydrate is isolated as a solid in 91.3% yield, with 99.96 LC area%, and 100.1 wt% assay.

The cardiac sarcomere is the basic unit of muscle contraction in the heart. The cardiac sarcomere is a highly ordered cytoskeletal structure composed of cardiac muscle myosin, actin and a set of regulatory proteins. The discovery and development of small molecule cardiac muscle myosin activators would lead to promising treatments for acute and chronic heart failure. Cardiac muscle myosin is the cytoskeletal motor protein in the cardiac muscle cell. It is directly responsible for converting chemical energy into the mechanical force, resulting in cardiac muscle contraction.

[0004] Current positive inotropic agents, such as beta-adrenergic receptor agonists or inhibitors of phosphodiesterase activity, increase the concentration of intracellular calcium, thereby increasing cardiac sarcomere contractility. However, the increase in calcium levels increase the velocity of cardiac muscle contraction and shortens systolic ejection time, which has been linked to potentially life-threatening side effects. In contrast, cardiac muscle myosin activators work by a mechanism that directly stimulates the activity of the cardiac muscle myosin motor protein, without increasing the intracellular calcium concentration. They accelerate the rate-limiting step of the myosin enzymatic cycle and shift it in favor of the force-producing state. Rather than increasing the velocity of cardiac contraction, this mechanism instead lengthens the systolic ejection time, which results in increased cardiac muscle contractility and cardiac output in a potentially more oxygen-efficient manner. [0005] U.S. Patent No. 7,507,735, herein incorporated by reference, discloses a genus of com ounds, including omecamtiv mecarbil (AMG 423, CK- 1827452), having the structure:

A solution of H3PO3 (106.0 g, 1.29 mol, 0.1 equiv.) and acetic acid (200 mL, 0.1 volume), prepared in separate vessel, was added. The reaction mixture was agitated for 0.5 h and analysis of an aliquot confirmed complete decomposition of benzoyl peroxide (not detected, HPLC254 nm)- The reaction mixture was cooled to 22 °C. DI Water (8.0 L, 4 volumes) and toluene (16.0 L, 8 volumes) were charged, the biphasic mixture was agitated (20 min), and the layers were separated. Aqueous 1.6N NaOH (14.0 L, 7.0 volumes) was added to the organic layer at a rate allowing the batch temperature to stay under 25 °C and the pH of the resultant aqueous phase was measured (> 11). The biphasic mixture was filtered through a 5 μιη Teflon® cartridge line and the layers were separated. The filter line was washed with another 2L of toluene.

[0082] The assay yields were 2.5 % of FN-Toluene, 62.3 % of FN-Bromide and 30.0 % of Di-Bromide. The toluene solution contained no benzoyl peroxide, succinimide, or cc- bromoacetic acid and water content by KF titration was 1030 ppm (This solution could be held under nitrogen at room temperature for > 12 h without any change in the assay yield).

[0083] To this solution at room temperature was added diisopropylethylamine (880.0 g, 6.63 mol, 0.53 equiv.) followed by methanol (460 mL, 11.28 mol, 0.88 equiv.) and heated to 40 °C. A solution of diethylphosphite (820.0 g, 5.63 mol, 0.46 equiv.) in methanol (460 mL, 11.28 mol, 0.88 equiv.) was prepared and added to the reaction mixture at 40 °C through an addition funnel over a period of 1 hour at such a rate that the batch temperature was within 40 + 5 °C. The contents were stirred for a period of 3h at 40 °C from the start of addition and cooled to room temperature and held under nitrogen atmosphere for 12 hours. The assay yield of the reaction mixture was 2.5 % FN-Toluene 92.0% FN-Bromide and 0.2% Di-Bromide. This solution is used as such for the alkylation step.

Piperazine Nitro-HCl:

[0086] To a mechanically stirred toluene solution (9 volumes) of FN-Bromide (prepared from previous step) in a 60 L reactor at 22 °C under an atmosphere of nitrogen,

diisopropylethylamine was charged (1.90 kg, 14.69 mol, 1.14 equiv.). To this mixture a solution of piperazine carboxylate methylester (Piperazine Carboxylate) (2.03 kg, 14.05 mol, 1.09 equiv.) in toluene (1.0 L, 0.5 volumes) was added at a rate allowing the batch temperature to stay under 30.0 °C (Exothermic. During the addition, jacket temperature was adjusted to 5 °C in order to maintain batch temperature below 30 °C. The mixture was agitated at 22 °C for 3 hours and analysis of an aliquot confirmed completion of the alkylation reaction (<1.0 LCAP FN-Bromide, HPLC254 nm). The reaction mixture was treated with aqueous NH4C1 (20 wt%, 10.0 L, 5 volumes; prepared from 2.0 kg of NH4C1 and 10.0 L of DI water), the biphasic mixture was agitated (30 min), and the layers were separated. The organic layer was sequentially washed with aqueous NaHC03 (9 wt%, 10.0 L, 5 volumes; prepared from 0.90 kg of NaHC03 and 10.0 L of DI water). The organic layer was filtered through a 5 μιη Teflon® cartridge line and transferred in a drum, washed the filter line with another 1.0 L toluene and the combined toluene solution (10.0 volumes) weighed, and assayed (HPLC) to quantify Piperazine Nitro free base. The assay yield for the Piperazine Nitro-freebase is 89.0%, FN-Toluene 2.5% and FN-Bromide 0.2% with FN-Bromide undetected. The total loss of product to the aqueous washes is < 1.0 %. This solution under nitrogen atmosphere is stable for more than 12h.

The mixture was heated to 55 °C and 20% of the 1.4 equiv. of cone. HCl (Titrated prior to use and charge based on titer value; 276.0 mL, 3.21 mol) was charged. The contents were agitated for 15 min and

Piperazine Nitro-HCl seed (130.0 g, 0.39 mol, 0.03 equiv.) was charged as slurry in IPA (400 mL, 0.2 volume). The mixture was agitated for 30 min and the remaining cone. HCl (80% of the charge, 1.10 L, 12.82 mol) was added over a period of 4 hours. The mixture was stirred at 55 °C for 1 h, cooled to 20 °C in a linear manner over 1.5 hours, and agitated at this temperature for 12 hours. The supernatant concentration of Piperazine Nitro-HCl was measured (2.8 mg/g). The mixture was filtered through an aurora filter equipped with a 5 μιη Teflon® cloth. The mother liquor were transferred to a clean drum and assayed. The filter cake was washed twice with IPA (11.2 L, 5.6 volumes) and dried to constant weight (defined as < 1.0% weight loss for 2 consecutive TGA measurements over a period of 2 hours) on filter with vacuum and a nitrogen sweep (14 h). The combined losses of Piperazine Nitro- HCl in the mother liquors and the washes were 2.5 %. Piperazine Nitro-HCl was isolated 3.59 kg in 87.6% corrected yield with >99.5 wt% and 99.0% LCAP purity.

methyl 4-(2-fluoro-3-nitrobenzyl)piperazine-l -carboxylate hydrochloride

[0089] A mixture of NaBH4 ( 1.7 g, 44 mmol) in THF (68 mL) was treated 2-fluoro-3- nitrobenzoic acid (3.4 g, 18.4 mmol) and cooled to 0-5 °C. A solution of iodine (4.7 g, 18.4 mmol) in THF (12 mL) was then added drop wise at a rate to control off-gassing. The progress of the reaction was assessed by HPLC. After 2 hours HPLC assay indicated 4% AUC of 2-fluoro-3-nitrobenzoic acid remained. The mixture was quenched into 1 M HCl (30 mL) and extracted with MTBE (5 mL). The organics were then washed with 20% aqueous KOH solution and 10% sodium thiosulfate. The organics were dried with Na2S04, filtered over Celite and concentrated to afford (2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)methanol (2.8 g, 88%, 89% AUC by HPLC).

[0090] A solution of (2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)methanol (2.8 g, 16 mmol) in 2-MeTHF (26 mL) was treated with triethylamine (4.5 mL, 32 mmol) and cooled to 0-5 °C. The solution was then treated with methanesulfonyl chloride (1.6 mL, 21 mmol). The progress of the reaction was assessed by HPLC. After 30 minutes at 0-5 °C, the reaction was deemed complete. The mixture was quenched with water (14 mL) and the phases were separated. The organics were washed with brine, dried with Na2S04, filtered over Celite and

concentrated to afford 2-fluoro-3-nitrobenzyl methanesulfonate (3.3 g, 83.1%, 81% AUC by HPLC) as a yellow oil.

[0091] A solution of 2-fluoro-3-nitrobenzyl methanesulfonate (3.3 g, 13 mmol, AMRI lot # 46DAT067B) in toluene (33 mL), was treated with diisopropylethylamine (2.7 mL, 15 mmol) in one portion. A solution of methylpiperazine- 1 -carboxylate (2.1 g, 15 mmol) in toluene (1.1 mL) was added slowly via syringe to maintain between 23-29 °C. The reaction was stirred for 16 hours following the addition. An HPLC assay after this time showed that the reaction was complete. 20% Aqueous NH4C1 (11 mL) was added at 20-25 °C. The biphasic mixture was stirred for 15 minutes, and the phases were separated. This process was repeated using 9% aqueous sodium bicarbonate (11 mL). The toluene layer was then filtered over Celite at 20-25 °C. 2-propanol (50 mL) and water (1.1 mL) were added to the toluene solution and the mixture heated to 55-60 °C. The mixture was then treated with 37wt% HC1 (1.6 mL, 18.7 mmol) over 20 minutes. A precipitate was noted following the addition. When the addition was complete, the mixture was allowed to cool gradually to 20-25 °C and was stirred for hours before filtering and washing with IPA (2 bed volumes).

[0092] The cake was then dried at under vacuum to afford 4-(2-fluoro-3- nitrobenzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate hydrochloride (2.41 g, 54%, 90% AUC by HPLC, 88 wt% by HPLC).

Piperazine Nitro Freebase:

[0093] In a 60 L reactor equipped with a reflux/return condenser, a mixture of Piperazine Nitro-HCl (2.0 kg, 5.99 mol, 1.0 equiv.) and isopropyl acetate (6.0 L, 3.0 volumes) was mechanically agitated at ambient temperature under an atmosphere of nitrogen. A solution of sodium bicarbonate (629 g, 7.49 mol, 1.25 equiv.) and water (7.5 L, 3.75 volume), prepared in separate vessel, was added. The biphasic mixture was agitated (15 min), and the layers were separated. The upper organic layer (containing product) was transferred to a separate vessel while the reactor was rinsed with water and isopropanol. The organic layer was then transferred through an inline 5 μιη Teflon® cartridge back into the clean 60 L reactor. The filter line was washed with 4.0 L (2.0 volumes) of isopropanol into the 60 L reactor. An additional 12.0 L (6.0 volumes) of isoproponal was added to the 60 L reactor and heated to 40 °C. Under reduced pressure (50 torr) the batch was concentrated down to approximately 6 L (3.0 volumes). The solution was cooled from 27 °C to 20 °C in a linear manner over 10 minutes. Water (4.0 L, 2.0 volumes) was added at 20 °C over 30 minutes followed by Piperazine Nitro Freebase seed (18 g, 0.06 mol, 0.01 equiv). The mixture was aged for 5 minutes and the remaining water (24.0 L, 12.0 volumes) was added over 90 minutes. After holding overnight at 20 °C, the supernatant concentration of Piperazine Nitro Freebase was measured (< 10 mg/mL). The mixture was filtered through an aurora filter equipped with a 12 μιη Teflon® cloth. The filter cake was washed with a mixture of water (3.3 L, 1.65 volumes) and isopropanol (700 mL, 0.35 volumes) and dried to constant weight (defined as < 1.0% weight loss for 2 consecutive TGA measurements over a period of 2 hours) on filter with vacuum and a nitrogen sweep (48 h). The combined losses of Piperazine Nitro Freebase in the mother liquors and the wash were aproximately 7.5 %. Piperazine Nitro Freebase was isolated 1.67 kg in 92.5% corrected yield with 100.0 wt% and 99.4% LCAP purity.

Amino Pyridine Phenyl Carbamate-HCl

[0094] A 60 L, glass-lined, jacketed reactor set at 20 °C under nitrogen atmosphere and vented through a scrubber (containing 5N NaOH) was charged with 2.5 kg of Amino

Pyridine (1.0 equiv, 23.1 moles), followed by 25 L (19.6 kg, 10 vol) acetonitrile. After initiating agitation and (the endothermic) dissolution of the Amino Pyridine, the vessel was charged with 12.5 L of N-methyl-2-pyrolidinone (12.8 kg, 5 vol). An addition funnel was charged with 1.8 L (0.6 equiv, 13.9 moles) phenyl chloroformate which was then added over 68 minutes to the solution of the Amino Pyridine keeping the internal temperature < 30°C. The reaction was agitated for > 30 minutes at an internal temperature of 20 ± 5 °C. The vessel was then charged with 61 ± 1 g of seed as a slurry in 200 mL acetonitrile and aged for > 30 min. The addition funnel was charged with 1.25 L (0.45 equiv, 9.7 moles) of phenyl chloroformate which was then added over 53 minutes to the reaction suspension while again keeping the temperature < 30°C. The contents of the reactor were aged > 30 hours at 20 ± 5°C. After assaying the supernatant (< 15mg/g for both product and starting material), the solids were filtered using an Aurora filter equipped with a 12μιη Teflon cloth. The mother liquor was forwarded to a 2nd 60 L, glass-lined, jacketed reactor. The reactor and cake were rinsed with l x lO L of 5: 10 NMP/ ACN and 1 x 10 L ACN. The washes were forwarded to the 2nd reactor as well. The cake was dried under vacuum with a nitrogen bleed for > 24 hours to afford 5.65 kg (90.2% yield) of the product, Phenyl Carbamate-HCl as an off-white solid in 98.8 wt% with 99.2% LCAP purity.

Alternative Synthesis of Phenyl Carbamate HC1

[0096] 5-Amino-2-methylpyridine (53.2 kg, 1.0 equiv) and acetonitrile (334 kg, 8.0 mL/g) were charged to a nitrogen flushed glass-lined reactor. The contents of the reactor were stirred while warming to 25-30 °C. The mixture was then recirculated through a filter packed with activated carbon (11 kg, 20 wt ) for 3 h intervals while maintaining 25-30 °C.

Following each 3 h interval, a sample of the mixture was analyzed for color by comparison to a color standard and UV Absorbance at 440nm. Once a satisfactory result was achieved, the filter was blown out into the reactor and the filter was rinsed with acetonitrile (85 kg, 2.0 mL/g). The acetonitrile rinse was transferred into the reaction mixture. l-Methyl-2- pyrrolidinone (274 kg, 5.0 mL/g) was charged to the reaction mixture in the glass-lined reactor. Phenyl chloroformate (46.6 kg, 0.6 equiv) was slowly added to the mixture while maintaining 15-30 °C (typically 60-70 min). The reaction mixture was stirred for approximatly 60 minutes while maintaining 20-25 °C. Phenyl(6-methylpyridin-3- yl)carbamate hydrochloride (0.58 kg, 0.010 equiv) seed crystals were charged to the stirring mixture. The slurry was then stirred for approximatly 4 h at 20+ 5°C. Phenyl chloroformate (33.4 kg, 0.45 equiv) was slowly added to the slurry while maintaining 15-30 °C. The mixture was then allowed to age while stirring for 8+1 h whereupon concentration of 5- amino-2-methylpyridine (target <15 mg/mL) and phenyl (6-methylpyridin-3-yl)carbamate hydrochloride (target <15 mg/mL) were checked by HPLC. The batch was then filtered under vacuum and washed with a mixture of acetonitrile (112 kg, 2.68 mL/g) and l-methyl-2- pyrrolidinone (72 kg, 1.32 mL/g) followed by washing thrise with acetonitrile (167 kg, 4.0 mL/g). The solids were deliquored followed by transfering to a tray dryer maintained between 20-40°C and 1.3-0.65 psia until an LOD of <lwt was achieved, whereupon phenyl(6-methylpyridin-3-yl)carbamate hydrochloride 106.3 kg (81.6% yield) was isolated from the dryer.

[0097] To a 100-L jacketed glass-lined reactor were added methyl 4-(2-fluoro-3- nitrobenzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate hydrochloride (2.00 kg, 1.00 equiv) and isopropyl acetate (6.00 L, 3.00 Vol with-respect to starting material). The resulting slurry was agitated under a nitrogen sweep. To the mixture was added dropwise over 45 + 30 min: 7.7 % w/w aqueous sodium bicarbonate solution (629 g, 1.25 equiv of sodium bicarbonate dissolved in 7.50 L water), maintaining an internal temperature of 20 + 5 °C by jacket control (NOTE: addition is endo thermic, and may evolve up to 1 equiv of carbon dioxide gas). The mixture was stirred for > 15 min, resulting in a clear biphasic mixture. Agitation was stopped and the layers were allowed to settle.

[0098] The bottom (aqueous) layer was drained and analyzed by pH paper to ensure that the layer is pH > 6. Quantititative HPLC analysis of the upper (organic) layer revealed 97- 100% assay yield of the methyl 4-(2-fluoro-3-nitrobenzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate freebase (1.73 – 1.78 kg). The upper (organic) layer was transferred through an in-line filter into a 20- L Hastelloy® hydro genator, and the 100-L reactor and lines were rinsed with an additional aliquot of isopropyl acetate (2.00 L, 1.00 Vol). The hydrogenator was purged with nitrogen and vented to atmospheric pressure. To the reaction mixture was added a slurry of 5.0 wt% palladium on carbon (20.0 g, Strem/BASF Escat™ 1421, approx 50% water) in isopropyl acetate (400 mL), followed by a 400 mL rinse. The resulting reaction mixture was diluted with an additional aliquot of isopropyl acetate (1.2 L; total isopropyl acetate amount is 10.0 L, 5.00 Vol). The hydrogenator was purged three times with nitrogen (pressurized to 60 + 10 psig, then vented to atmospheric pressure), then pressurized to 60 + 5 psig with hydrogen. The reaction mixture was stirred at < 100 rpm at 30 + 5 °C while maintaining 60 + 5 psig hydrogen, for >2 hours until reaction was deemed complete. This temperature and pressure correspond to a measured kLa value of approx 0.40 in a 20-L Hydrogenator. End of reaction is determined by dramatic decrease in hydrogen consumption accompanied by a relief in the heat evolution of the reaction. To control potential dimeric impurities, the reaction is continued for at least 30 minutes after this change in reaction profile, and HPLC analysis is performed to confirm that >99.5% conversion of the hydroxyl-amine to the aniline is achieved.

[0099] At the end of reaction, the hydrogenator was purged with nitrogen twice

(pressurized to 60 + 10 psig, then vented to atmospheric pressure). The crude reaction mixture was filtered through a 5 μιη filter followed by a 0.45 μιη filter in series, into a 40-L glass-lined reactor. The hydrogenator and lines were washed with an additional aliquot of isopropyl acetate (2.00 L). Quantitative HPLC analysis of the crude reaction mixture revealed 95-100% assay yield (1.52 – 1.60 kg aniline product). The reaction mixture was distilled under reduced pressure (typically 250 – 300 mbar) at a batch temperature of 50 + 5 °C until the total reaction volume was approximately 8.00 L (4.00 Vol). The batch was subjected to a constant-volume distillation at 50 + 5 °C, 250 – 300 mbar, by adding heptane to control the total batch volume. After approximately 8.00 L (4.00 Vol) of heptane were added, GC analysis indicated that the solvent composition was approximately 50 % isopropyl acetate, 50% heptane. Vacuum was broken, and the internal batch temperature was maintained at 50 + 5 °C. To the reaction mixture was added a slurry of seed (20.0 grams of product methyl 4-(3-amino-2-fluorobenzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate, in a solvent mixture of 80 mL heptane and 20 mL isopropyl acetate). The resulting slurry was allowed to stir at 50 + 5 °C for 2 + 1 hours, then cooled to 20 + 5 °C over 2.5 + 1.0 h. Additional heptane (24.0 L, 12.0 Vol) was added dropwise over 2 hours, and the batch was allowed to stir at 20 + 5 °C for > 1 hours (typically overnight). Quantitative HPLC analysis of this filtered supernatant revealed < 5 mg/mL product in solution, and the product crystals were 50 – 400 μιη birefringent rods. The reaction slurry was filtered at 20 °C onto a filter cloth, and the cake was displacement-washed with heptane (6.00 L, 2.00 Vol). The cake was dried on the filter under nitrogen sweep at ambient temperature for > 4 hours, until sample dryness was confirmed by LOD analysis (indicated <1.0 wt% loss). The product methyl 4-(3-amino-2- fluorobenzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate (1.56 kg) was isolated as a pale-yellow powder in 86% yield at 99.8 wt% by HPLC with 100.0 LCAP2i0.

Alternate route to Piperazine Aniline

[00100] To a jacketed glass-lined reactor were added methyl 4-(2-fluoro-3- nitrobenzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate hydrochloride (46.00 kg, 1.00 equiv) and isopropyl acetate (200 kg, 5.0 mL/g). The resulting slurry was agitated under a nitrogen sweep. To the mixture was added 7.4 % w/w aqueous sodium bicarbonate solution (1.25 equiv) while maintaining an internal temperature of 25 + 5 °C. The mixture was agitated for > 30 min, resulting in a clear biphasic mixture. Agitation was stopped and the bottom (aqueous) layer was discharged. Analysis of aqueous layer indicates pH >6. Water (92 kg, 2.0 mL/g) was charged the organic layer and agitated for >15 min. Agitation was then stopped and the bottom (water wash) layer was discharged. Water (92 kg, 2.0 mL/g) was charged the organic layer and agitated for > 15 min. Agitation was then stopped and the bottom (water wash) layer was discharged. The batch was distilled under reduced pressure while maintaining the batch temperature between 40-50 °C. The batch volume was held constant throughout the distillation by the continuous addition of isopropyl acetate. Once the water content of the batch was < 1,500 ppm, the solution was passed through an inline filter into a Hastelloy reactor containing 5.0 wt% palladium on carbon (BASF Escat 1421, 0.69 kg, 1.5 wt%). The jacketed glass-lined reactor was rinsed with isopropyl acetate (100 kg, 2.5 mL/g) and added to the Hastelloy reactor though the inline filter.

[00101] The batch was adjusted to approximately 25-35 °C (preferably 30 °C) and hydrogen gas was added to maintain about 4 barg with vigorous agitation. Hydrogenation was continued for 1 h after hydrogen uptake has ceased, and >99.0% conversion by HPLC were achieved. The palladium on carbon catalyst was collected by filtration and the supernatant was collected in a reactor. Isopropyl acetate (40 kg, 1.0 mL/g) was charged to the Hastelloy reactor and transferred through the filter and collected in the jacketed glass-lined reactor.

[00102] The batch was concentrated under reduced pressure while maintaining the batch temperature between 35-55 °C until the final volume was approximately 4.0 mL/g. Heptane (219 kg, 7.0 mL/g) was added to the jacketed glass-lined reactor while maintaining the batch between 50-60 °C, until 20-25% isopropyl acetate in heptane was achieved as measured by GC. The solution was cooled to between 40-50 °C and seeded with methyl 4-(3-amino-2- fluorobenzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate (0.46 kg, 1.0 wt%) as a slurry in heptane (6.4 kg, 0.20 mL/g). The slurry was aged for approximately 2 h, whereupon, the batch was distilled under reduced pressure while maintaining the batch temperature between 35-45 °C. The batch volume was held constant throughout the distillation by the continuous addition of heptane (219 kg, 7.0 mL/g). The batch was then cooled to between 15-25 °C over approximately 3 h. Concentration of the supernatant was measured to be <5 mg/mL methyl 4-(3-amino-2- fluorobenzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate by HPLC.

[00103] The batch was filtered and the resulting solids were successively washed with heptane (63 kg, 2.0 mL/g) then heptane (94 kg, 3.0 mL/g). The solids were dried on the filter with a stream of dry nitrogen with vacuum until an LOD of <_lwt% was achieved whereupon 33.88 kg (90.7% yield) was isolated from the filter dryer.

[00104] To a 15L glass lined reactor were charged methyl 4-(3-amino-2-fluoro- benzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate (1,202 g, 4.50 mol), phenyl (6-methylpyridin-3- yl)carbamate hydrochloride (1,444 g, 5.40 mol), and tetrahydrofuran (4.81 L). The resulting slurry was agitated under a nitrogen sweep and N,N-diisopropylethylamine (1,019 L, 5.85 mol) was then charged to the slurry which resulted in a brown solution. The temperature of the solution was increased to 65 °C and agitated for 22 h, until <1% AUC piperazine aniline remained by HPLC analysis.

[0100] The batch was cooled to 50 °C and distilled under reduced pressure while maintaining the internal temperature of the vessel below 50 °C by adjusting vacuum pressure. 2-Propanol was added with residual vacuum at a rate to maintain a constant volume in the 15 L reactor. A total of 10.5 kg of 2-propanol was required to achieve <5% THF by GC. Water (2.77 kg) was then charged to the reactor followed by the addition of 6N HC1 (1.98 kg) at a rate to maintain the internal temperature below 60 °C. The reactor was brought to ambient pressure under a nitrogen sweep. The solution was then heated to 60 °C, and transferred to a 60L glass lined reactor through an inline filter. The 15L reactor was then rinsed with 1: 1 water/2-propanol (1.2L) which was sent through the inline filter to the 60L reactor.

[0101] The 60L reactor was adjusted to 45 °C and a slurry of seed (114 g, 0.23 mol) in 2- propanol (0.35 L) was added to the reactor resulting in a slurry. The batch was aged at 45 °C for 1 h, followed by the addition of 2-propanol (3.97 kg) through an inline filter over 2 h. The batch was heated to 55°C over 1 h and held for 0.25 h, then cooled back to 45°C over 1 h and held overnight at 45 °C. 2-propanol (11.71 kg) was then added through an inline filter to the batch over 3 h. The batch was aged for 1 h and then cooled to 20°C over 2 h and held at 20 °C for 0.5 h. The batch was then recirculated though a wet mill affixed with 1-medium and 2- fine rotor-stators operating at 56 Hz for 2.15 h, until no further particle size reduction was observed by microscopy.

[0102] The batch was then filtered through a 20″ Hastelloy® filter fitted with a 12 urn filter cloth under 500 torr vacuum. A wash solution of 95:5 2-propanol:water (1.82 L) was charged through an inline filter to the 60L reactor, then onto the filter. A second wash of 2- propanol (2.85L) was charged through an inline filter to the 60L reactor, then onto the filter. The batch was then dried under 5 psi humidified nitrogen pressure until <5,000 ppm 2- propanol, and 2.5-5% water remained. The final solid was discharged from the filter to afford 2.09 kg of methyl 4-(2-fluoro-3-(3-(6-methylpyridin-3-yl)ureido)benzyl)piperazine-l- carboxylate as an off-white crystalline solid in 89% yield at 99.88 wt% by HPLC, 100.0% AUC. Total losses to liquors was 0.10 kg (4.7%).

[0104] A reaction vessel was charged methyl 4-(3-amino-2-fluorobenzyl)piperazine-l- carboxylate (2.5 g, 1.0 equiv), acetonitrile (25.0 mL, 10.0 mL/g) and l-methyl-2- pyrrolidinone (12.5 mL, 5.0 mL/g). The batch was cooled to 0 °C whereupon phenyl chloroformate (1.20 mL, 1.02 equiv) was added over approximately 5 min. After 45 minutes the resulting slurry resulted was allowed to warm to 20 °C. The solids were collected by filtration and rinsed twice with acetonitrile (10.0 mL, 4.0 mL/g). The solids were dried under a stream of dry nitrogen to afford methyl 4-(2-fluoro-3-

((phenoxycarbonyl)amino)benzyl)piperazine- l -carboxylate hydrochloride 2.8 g (71 % yield) as a white solid.

[0106] A reaction vessel was charged methyl 4-(2-fluoro-3-

((phenoxycarbonyl)amino)benzyl)piperazine-l-carboxylate hydrochloride (0.50 g, 1.0 equiv), 6-methylpyridin-3-amine (0.15 g, 1.2 equiv), tetrahydrofuran (2.0 mL, 4.0 mL/g) and

N,N-diisopropylethylamine (0.23 mL, 1.1 equiv). The batch was heated to 65 °C for 22 h, whereupon quantitative HPLC analysis indicated 0.438 g (92% assay yield) of omecamtiv mecarbil.

Alternative Omecamtiv Mecarbil Dihydrochloride Hydrate procedure

[0107] Omecamtiv Mecarbil, free base (3.0 kg, 1.0 equiv) was charged to a nitrogen purged jacketed vessel followed by water (4.6 L, 1.5 mL/g) and 2-propanol (6.1 L, 2.60 mL/g). The slurry was agitated and heated to approximately 40 °C, whereupon 6N HC1 (2.6 L, 2.10 equiv) was charged to the slurry resulting in a colorless homogenous solution. The solution was heated to between 60-65 °C and transferred through an inline filter to a 60L reactor pre -heated to 60 °C. The batch was cooled to 45 °C whereupon Omecamtiv Mecarbil dihydrochloride hydrate (150 g, 5.0 wt%) was charged to the vessel as a slurry in 95:5 (v/v) 2-Propanol/Water (600 mL, 0.20 mL/g). The resulting slurry was maintained at 45 °C for 0.5 h followed by cooling to approximately 20 °C then held for 3-16 h. 2-Propanol (33.0 L, 11.0 mL/g) was added over >2h followed by a >1 h isothermal hold at approximately 20 °C.

(Supernatant pH <7).

[0108] The batch was recirculated through a wet mill for 5-10 batch turnovers until sufficient particle reduction was achieve as compared to offline calibrated visual microscopy reference. The slurry was filtered by vacuum and the resulting solids were washed with two washes of 95:5 (v/v) 2-Propanol/Water (3.0 L, 1.0 mL/g) and a final cake wash with 2- Propanol (6.0 L, 2.0 mL/g). The cake was dried on the filter by pushing humidified nitrogen through the cake until <5,000 ppm 2-propanol and 2.5-5% water were measured by GC and KF analysis, respectively. Omecamtiv Mecarbil dihydrochloride hydrate was isolated as a colorless crystalline solid (3.40 kg, 93% yield). pH dependent release profiles

A SPECIFIC TRIFLUOROETHYL QUINOLINE ANALOGUE FOR USE IN THE TREATMENT OF APDS

The present invention relates to the new therapeutic use of a known chemical compound. More particularly, the present invention concerns the use of a specific substituted quinoline derivative comprising a fluorinated ethyl side-chain in the treatment of activated phosphoinositide 3 -kinase delta syndrome (APDS).

N- {(R)- 1 -[8-Chloro-2-(l -oxypyridin-3-yl)quinolin-3-yl]-2,2,2-trifiuoroethyl} -pyrido[3,2-JJpyrimidin-4-ylamine is specifically disclosed in WO 2012/032334. The compounds described in that publication are stated to be of benefit as pharmaceutical agents, especially in the treatment of adverse inflammatory, autoimmune, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, metabolic, oncological, nociceptive and ophthalmic conditions.

There is no specific disclosure or suggestion in WO 2012/032334, however, that the compounds described therein might be beneficial in the treatment of APDS.

Activated phosphoinositide 3-kinase delta syndrome (APDS), also known as

PASLI (pi ΙΟδ-activating mutation causing senescent T cells, lymphadenopathy and immunodeficiency), is a serious medical condition that impairs the immune system.

APDS patients generally have reduced numbers of white blood cells (lymphopenia), especially B cells and T cells, compromising their propensity to recognise and attack invading microorganisms, such as viruses and bacteria, and thereby prevent infection. Individuals affected with APDS develop recurrent infections, particularly in the lungs, sinuses and ears. Recurrent respiratory tract infections may gradually lead to bronchiectasis, a condition which damages the passages leading from the windpipe to the lungs (bronchi) and can cause breathing problems. APDS patients may also suffer from chronic active viral infections, including Epstein-Barr virus infections and cytomegalovirus infections.

APDS has also been associated with abnormal clumping of white blood cells, which can lead to enlarged lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy). Alternatively, the white blood cells can build up to form solid masses (nodular lymphoid hyperplasia), usually in the moist lining of the airways or intestines. Whilst lymphadenopathy and nodular lymphoid hyperplasia are benign (noncancerous), APDS also increases the risk of developing a form of cancer called B cell lymphoma.

APDS is a disorder of childhood, typically arising soon after birth. However, the precise prevalence of APDS is currently unknown.

Phosphoinositide 3-kinase delta (ΡΒΚδ) is a lipid kinase which catalyses the generation of phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate (PIP3) from phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2). PI3K5 activates signalling pathways within cells, and is specifically found in white blood cells, including B cells and T cells. PI3K5 signalling is involved in the growth and division (proliferation) of white blood cells, and it helps direct B cells and T cells to mature (differentiate) into different types, each of which has a distinct function in the immune system.

APDS is known to occur in two variants, categorised as APDSl and APDS2.

APDSl is associated with a heterozygous gain-of- function mutation in the PIK3CD gene encoding the PI3K5 protein; whereas APDS2 is associated with loss-of-function frameshift mutations in the regulatory PIK3R1 gene encoding the p85a regulatory subunit of class I phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) peptides. Both mutations lead to hyperactivated PI3K signalling. See I. Angulo et ah, Science, 2013, 342, 866-871; C.L. Lucas et ah, Nature Immunol, 2014, 15, 88-97; and M-C. Deau et al, J. Clin. Invest., 2014, 124, 3923-3928.

There is currently no effective treatment available for APDS. Because of the seriousness of the condition, and the fact that it arises in infancy, the provision of an effective treatment for APDS would plainly be a highly desirable objective.

It has now been found that N-{(R)-l-[8-chloro-2-(l-oxypyridin-3-yl)quinolin-3-yl]- 2,2,2-trifluoroethyl}pyrido[3,2-(i]pyrimidin-4-ylamine is capable of inhibiting the elevation of PI3K signalling in T cells (lymphocytes) from both APDSl and APDS2 patients in the presence or absence of T cell receptor activation.

The present invention accordingly provides N-{(R)-l-[8-chloro-2-(l-oxypyridin-3-yl)quinolinB-yl]-2,2,2-trifluoroethyl}pyrido[3,2-JJpyrimidin-4-ylamine of formula (A):

or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, for use in the treatment and/or prevention of APDS.

The present invention also provides a method for the treatment and/or prevention of APDS, which method comprises administering to a patient in need of such treatment an effective amount of N-{(R)-l-[8-chloro-2-(l-oxypyridin-3-yl)quinolin-3-yl]-2,2,2-trifluoro-ethyl}pyrido[3,2-(i]pyrimidin-4-ylamine of formula (A) as depicted above, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof. The present invention also provides the use of N-{(R)-l-[8-chloro-2-(l-oxypyridin-3-yl)quinolin-3-yl]-2,2,2-trifluoroethyl}pyrido[3,2-JJpyrimidin-4-ylamine of formula (A) as depicted above, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, for the manufacture of a medicament for the treatment and/or prevention of APDS.

A c-Met kinase inhibitor with antineoplastic activity.

NCI: volitinib. An orally bioavailable inhibitor of the c-Met receptor tyrosine kinase with potential antineoplastic activity. Volitinib selectively binds to and inhibits the activation of c-Met in an ATP-competitive manner, and disrupts c-Met signal transduction pathways. This may result in cell growth inhibition in tumors that overexpress the c-Met protein. C-Met encodes the hepatocyte growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase and plays an important role in tumor cell proliferation, survival, invasion, and metastasis, and tumor angiogenesis; this protein is overexpressed or mutated in a variety of cancers.(NCI Thesaurus)

Savolitinib is an experimental small molecule inhibitor of c-Met. It is being investigated for the treatment of cancer by AstraZeneca.[1] It is in phase II clinical trials for adenocarcinomanon-small cell lung cancer, and renal cell carcinoma.[2]

Savolitinib is a first-in-class inhibitor of c-Met in phase III clinical development at at Hutchison China MediTech (Chi-Med) and AstraZeneca for the treatment of patients with MET-driven, unresectable and locally advanced or metastatic papillary renal cell carcinoma. Phase II trials are also under way for the oral treatment of locally advanced or metastatic pulmonary sarcomatoid carcinoma. AstraZeneca is conducting phase II clinical trials for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer. Phase I/II trials are ongoing at Samsung Medical Center for the second-line treatment of advanced gastric adenocarcinoma patients with MET amplification.

In 2011, the drug was licensed to AstraZeneca by at Hutchison China MediTech (Chi-Med) for worldwide codevelopment and marketing rights for the treatment of cancer.

HGF/c-Met signaling has been implicated in human cancers. Herein we describe the invention of a series of novel triazolopyrazine c-Met inhibitors. The structure–activity relationship of these compounds was investigated, leading to the identification of compound 28, which demonstrated favorable pharmacokinetic properties in mice and good antitumor activities in the human glioma xenograft model in athymic nude mice.

Lumateperone (INN; developmental code names ITI-007ITI-722) is an investigational atypical antipsychotic which is currently under development by Intra-Cellular Therapies, licensed from Bristol-Myers Squibb, for the treatment of schizophrenia.[1][2] It is also being developed by Intra-Cellular Therapies for the treatment of bipolar disorderdepression, and sleep and behavioral disturbance in dementiaautism, and other neuropsychiatric disorders.[3] As of September 2015, lumateperone has passed the first of two phase IIIclinical trials for schizophrenia.[4] In November 2017 the US FDA awarded Intra-Cellular Therapies Fast Track designation for lumateperone.[5]

Pharmacology

Pharmacodynamics

Relative to presently-available antipsychotics, lumateperone possesses a unique and novel mechanism of action.[6][7] It acts as a 5-HT2A receptor antagonist (Ki = 0.54 nM), a partial agonist of presynaptic D2 receptors and an antagonist of postsynaptic D2 receptors (Ki = 32 nM), and a serotonin transporter blocker (Ki = 61 nM).[6][8] It also possesses affinity for the D1 receptor (Ki = 52 nM) and lower affinity for the α1A and α1B-adrenergic receptors (Ki = 73 nM at α1), 5-HT2C receptor (Ki = 173 nM), and D4 receptor.[6] Lumateperone does not significantly bind to the 5-HT2BH1 (Ki > 1,000 nM), muscarinic acetylcholine receptors, or many other sites (Ki > 100 nM).[6]

Lumateperone shows a 60-fold difference in its affinities for the 5-HT2A and D2 receptors, which is far greater than that of most or all existing atypical antipsychotics, such as risperidone (12-fold), olanzapine (12.4-fold), and aripiprazole (0.18-fold).[6][9] It is thought that this property may improve the effectiveness and reduce the side effect profile of lumateperone relative to currently-available antipsychotics, a hypothesis which is supported by the observation of minimal catalepsy in mice treated with the drug.[6][9] Moreover, it has been expressed that this property could result in full occupancy and blockade of the 5-HT2A at low doses, with dose-dependent adjustable modulation of the D2 receptor, as well as the SERT, possible with increasing doses, which would uniquely allow for clinical optimization of efficacy and side effect incidence.[6][9]

Unlike most current antipsychotics, such as haloperidol, risperidone, and olanzapine, lumateperone does not disrupt striatal dopamine signaling, a property which is likely due to its partial agonism of presynaptic D2 receptors.[6] In accordance, similarly to aripiprazole, which is also a partial agonist of presynaptic D2 receptors, lumateperone showed no striatum-based motor side effects (i.e., catalepsy) in animals.[6]

Clinical studies

In phase II clinical trials, lumateperone showed statistically-significant efficacy in improvement of psychosis at a dose of 60 mg daily.[2] In addition, it distinguished itself from its comparator risperidone in reducing negative symptoms, including improvement in social function, as well as in alleviating depressive symptoms in schizophrenia patients with comorbid depression, whereas risperidone had no effect.[2][10] Lumateperone also distinguished itself from risperidone in that it produced little or no weight gain, did not negatively affect metabolic parameters (i.e., insulinglucosetriglyceride, and cholesterol levels), did not increase prolactin levels, and did not show a rate of the side effect of akathisia that differed from placebo.[2][10] In addition, lumateperone did not produce any changes in cardiovascular function, such as QTc prolongation, and unlike risperidone, it did not produce a measurable increase heart rate.[7] Due to its favorable influence on metabolic parameters, it was concluded that lumateperone, unlike many other available antipsychotics such as risperidone, may not cause an increase in the risk of diabetes or cardiovascular disease, and hence may prove to be a significant improvement relative to many existing antipsychotic drugs in terms of long-term safety and tolerability.[2]

Lumateperone, at a dose of 60 mg per day, was not found to be associated with any statistically significant treatment-emergent side effects relative to placebo.[10] At a dose of 120 mg daily, the most frequent adverse effect observed was sedation/somnolence, reported by 32.5% of patients.[10] There was no evidence of extrapyramidal symptoms or increase in suicidal ideation or behavior.[10]

Figure imgf000002_0001

[0004] ITI-007 is a potent 5-HT2A receptor ligand (Ki=0.5 nM) with strong affinity for dopamine (DA) D2 receptors (Ki=32 nM) and the serotonin transporter (SERT) (Ki=62 nM) but negligible binding to receptors (e.g., HI histaminergic, 5-HT2C, and muscarinic) associated with cognitive and metabolic side effects of antipsychotic drugs. ΠΊ-007 is currently in clinical trials, i.a., for treatment of schizophrenia. While ITI-007 is a promising drug, its production and formulation present challenges. In free base form, ITI-007 is an oily, sticky solid, with poor solubility, not only in water but also in many organic solvents. Making salts of the compound has proven to be unusually difficult. A hydrochloride salt form of ITI-007 was disclosed in US 7183282, but this salt is hygroscopic and shows poor stability. A toluenesulfonic acid addition salt (tosylate) of ITI- 007 was finally identified and described in WO 2009/114181.

[0005] There is a need for alternative stable, pharmaceutically acceptable solid forms of ITI-007, which can be readily incorporated into galenic formulations.

[0037] Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) with infrared spectroscopy (TGA-IR):

In TGA-IR, the off-gassing materials are directed through a transfer line to a gas cell, where the infrared light interacts with the gases. The temperature ramp and first derivative weight loss information from the TGA is shown as a Gram-Schmidt (GS) profile; the GS profile essentially shows the total change in the IR signal relative to the initial state. In most cases, the GS and the derivative weight loss will be similar in shape, although the intensity of the two can differ. For this experiment are two devices coupled to each other. The TGA studies are performed using a Mettler Toledo TGA/DSCl STARe System with a 34-position auto sampler, equipment #1547. The samples are made using Al crucibles (100 μΐ; pierced). Typically 20-50 mg of sample is loaded into a pre- weighed Al crucible and is kept at 30°C for 5 minutes after which it is heated at 10°C/min from 30°C to 350°C. A nitrogen purge of 40 ml/min is maintained over the sample. The TGA-IR module of the Nicolet iS50 is coupled to the TGA/DSCl.

Add 1 ml of TFA and homogenize. Fill up to the mark with MilliQ; Mobile phase B: Add 800 ml of Acetonitrile to a 1L volumetric flask. Add 1 ml of TFA and homogenize. Fill up to the mark with Acetonitrile; Diluent: 50/50 MeOH/ACN.

Example 1: Co-crystal screen

[0039] Solubility of free base in various solvents is evaluated, and based on the results of the solubility range, suitable solvents are selected for the co-crystal screen. Co-crystal formation is based on hydrogen bonding and stacking of the molecules, meaning the co-former selection is based on active groups. Grinding is a method to form co-crystals, however the free base itself is an oil/ sticky solid and therefore not suitable for this method. The free base and counter ion are added to a solution in a certain ratio to give the chance to form a co-crystal, similar to salt formation. We found the best method is to add a saturated solution of the co-former to that of the free base to find an optimal ratio for co-crystal formation.

[0040] Three different experiments are performed with each of 26 candidate co-formers, which include sugar alcohols, amino acids, and other compounds identified as having potential to for co- crystals; adding solutions stepwise, slurry experiments and cooling crystallization experiments. The free base and co-former are dissolved prior to adding to each other. Co-formers are added in a 1 : 1 , 2: 1 and 1 :2 ratio to the free base. All experiments are performed using four different solvents, methanol, acetonitrile, ethyl acetate and toluene. All solids are characterized by XRPD. Two different ITI-007 free base co-crystals formed, with nicotinamide and with isonicotinamide. Both co-crystals were obtained by slurry experiments in methanol.

Example 2: Isonicotinamide co-crystal

[0041] Isonicotinamide forms a possible co-crystal with ITI-007 free base by slurrying the mixture in methanol and ethyl acetate, appearing as a red/brown and yellow solid respectively. TGA-DSC analysis of the experiment using isonicotinamide in methanol results in two endothermic events,

Figure imgf000013_0001

Both endothermic events do not correspond to the free base or the co-former, which means ITI-007 free base-isonicotinamide co-crystal is formed. HPLC and Ή-ΝΜΡ analyses confirm both of the free base and the co-former to be present. Using isonicotinamide in ethyl acetate, however, does not result in a co-crystal and, no endothermic event is present in the TGA/DSC analysis.

[0042] The slurry experiment in methanol is repeated at a gram scale. First, ITI-007 free base and isonicotinamide are each dissolved in methanol. Subsequently, the obtained solutions are mixed in a 1: 1 ratio and the resulting mixture is stirred at room temperature for 2 hours. The mixture remains a clear solution, which is evaporated under vacuum to give a brown sticky solid. XRPD analysis shows the brown sticky solid to be crystalline, as shown in Figure 1, ITI-007 free base-isonicotinamide co-crystal has formed. The corresponding peak list is showing in Table 1. The XRPD shows clustered peaks which is likely due to preferred orientation.

The present application relates to solid state forms of Lumateperone p-Tosylate and processes for preparation thereof.

The drug compound is having the adopted name “Lumateperone” and it has chemical name: l-(4-fluorophenyl)-4-[(6bR,10aS)-2,3,6b,9,10,10a-hexahydro-3-methyl-lH-pyrido[3′,4′:4,5]pyrrolo[l,2,3-de]quinoxalin-8(7H)-yl] 1-Butanone; and a structure depicted by Formula I.

Crystalline solids normally require a significant amount of energy for dissolution due to their highly organized, lattice like structures. For example, the energy required for a drug molecule to escape from a crystal is more than from an amorphous or a non-crystalline form. It is known that the amorphous forms in a number of drugs exhibit different dissolution characteristics and in some cases different bioavailability patterns compared to the crystalline form. For some therapeutic indications, one bioavailability pattern may be favored over another. Therefore, it is desirable to have amorphous forms of drugs with high purity to meet the needs of regulatory agencies and also highly reproducible processes for their preparation.

In view of the above, it is therefore, desirable to stable amorphous form of Lumateperone j?-tosylate. The amorphous form provided herein is at least stable under ordinary stability conditions with respect to purity, storage and is free flowing powder.

Amorphous solid dispersions of drugs are generally known to improve the stability and solubility of drug products. However, some of such amorphous solid dispersions are found to be unstable over time. Amorphous solid dispersions of drugs tend to convert to crystalline forms over time, which can lead to improper dosing due to differences of the solubility of crystalline drug material compared to amorphous drug material. The present invention, however provides stable amorphous solid dispersions of Lumateperone j?-tosylate with improved solubility. Moreover, the present invention provides solid dispersions of Lumateperone j?-tosylate which may be reproduced easily and is amenable for processing into a dosage form

EXAMPLE 1 : PREPARATION OF AMORPHOUS LUMATEPERONE p-TOSYLATE

Lumateperone j?-tosylate (500 mg) was dissolved in methanol (25 mL) at room temperature for clear solution and filtered to remove undissolved particles. The resultant filtrate was subjected to fast solvent evaporation using rotavapor at about 55°C to afford the solid compound. The said solid was dried under vacuum at about 45°C to afford the amorphous Lumateperone p-tosylate according to Figure 1.

By the addition of cesium carbonate the temperature of the reaction mixture increases to 40°C and gas evolved from the reaction mixture. Copper(l)iodide (514 mg; 2.7 mmol) is added. This triggers a strongly exothermic reaction and the temperature of the reaction mixture reaches 70°C within a few seconds. Stirring is continued for 30 minutes. Then the DMF is evaporated under reduced pressure followed by the addition of water (170 ml) and EtOAc (90 ml). The mixture is vigorously stirred and by the addition of citric acid monohydrate the pH is adjusted to 3-4. The precipitate is filtered off and washed with water and EtOAc and discarded. The filtrate is poured into a separation funnel and the phases are separated. The water phase is extracted again with EtOAc. The combined organic layers are dried over MgS04, filtered and the solvent is evaporated to give 7.1 g of 5-methoxy-2-(2H-1 ,2,3-triazol-2-yl)benzoic acid as a white powder of 94% purity (6 % impurity is the regioisomerically N1-linked triazolo-derivative); tR [min] = 0.60; [M+H]+ = 220.21

2) Synthesis of (S)-1 -(tert-butoxycarbonyl)-2-methylpyrrolidine-2-carboxylic acid

2-Methyl-L-proline hydrochloride (99.7 g; 602 mmol) is dissolved in a 1/1-mixture of MeCN and water (800 ml) and triethylamine (254 ml; 1810 mmol) is added. The temperature of the reaction mixture slightly rises. The reaction mixture is cooled to 10°C to 15°C followed by careful addition of a solution of Boc20 (145 g; 662 mmol) in MeCN (200 ml) over 10 minutes.

Stirring at RT is continued for 2 hours. The MeCN is evaporated under reduced pressure and aq. NaOH solution (2M; 250 ml) is added to the residual aq. part of the reaction mixture. The water layer is washed with Et20 (2x 300 ml) then cooled to 0°C followed by slow and careful addition of aq. HCI (25%) to adjust the pH to 2. During this procedure a suspension forms.

The precipitate is filtered off and dried at HV to give 1 10.9 g of the title compound as a beige powder; tR [min] = 0.68; [M+H]+ = 230.14

3) Synthesis of (S)-tert-butyl 2-((2-amino-4-chloro-3-methylphenyl)carbamoyl)-2-

(S)-1-(tert-butoxycarbonyl)-2-methylpyrrolidine-2-carboxylic acid (60 g; 262 mmol) and HATU (100 g; 264 mmol) is suspended in DCM (600 ml) followed by the addition of DIPEA (84.6 g; 654 mmol) and 6-chloro-2,3-diaminotoluene (41 g; 262 mmol). The reaction mixture is stirred at rt for 14 hours then concentrated under reduced pressure and to the residue is added water followed by the extraction of the product with EtOAc (3x). The combined organic layers are washed with brine, dried over MgS04, filtered and the solvent is evaporated under

reduced pressure to give 185 g of the title compound as a dark brownish oil, which is used in the next step without further purification; tR [min] = 0.89; [M+H]+ = 368.01

4) Synthesis of (S)-tert-butyl 2-(5-chloro-4-methyl-1 H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)-2-methylpyrrolidine-1 -carboxylate

(S)-tert-butyl 2-((2-amino-4-chloro-3-methylphenyl)carbamoyl)-2-methylpyrrolidine-1-carboxylate (185 g; 427 mmol) are dissolved in AcOH (100%; 611 ml), heated to 100°C and stirring continued for 90 minutes. The AcOH is evaporated under reduced pressure and the residue is dissolved in DCM followed by careful addition of saturated sodium bicarbonate solution. The phases are separated, the aq. phase is extracted once more with DCM, the combined aq. phases are dried over MgS04, filtered and the solvent is evaporated under reduced pressure to give 142.92 g of the title compound as a dark brown oil which is used in the next step without further purification; tR [min] = 0.69; [M+H]+ = 350.04

5) Synthesis of (S)-5-chloro-4-methyl-2-(2-methylpyrrolidin-2-yl)-1 H-benzo[d]imidazole hydrochloride

(S)-tert-butyl 2-(5-chloro-4-methyl-1 H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)-2-methylpyrrolidine-1-carboxylate (355.53 g; 1.02 mol) are dissolved in dioxane (750 ml) followed by careful addition of HCI solution in dioxane (4M; 750 ml; 3.05 mol). The reaction mixture is stirred for 3 hours followed by the addition of Et20 (800 ml) which triggered precipitation of the product. The solid is filtered off and dried at high vacuum to give 298.84 g of the title compound as a redish powder; tR [min] = 0.59; [M+H]+ = 250.23

6) Synthesis of [(S)-2-(5-chloro-4-methyl-1 H-benzoimidazol-2-yl)-2-methyl-pyrrolidin-1- -(5-methoxy-2-[1,2,3]triazol-2-yl-phenyl)-methanone

(S)-5-chloro-4-methyl-2-(2-methylpyrrolidin-2-yl)-1 H-benzo[d]imidazole hydrochloride (62.8 g; 121 mmol) is dissolved in DCM (750 ml) followed by the addition of 5-methoxy-2-(2H-1 ,2,3-triazol-2-yl)benzoic acid (62.8 g; 121 mmol) and DIPEA (103 ml; 603 mmol). Stirring is continued for 10 minutes followed by the addition of HATU (47 g; 124 mmol). The reaction mixture is stirred for 16 hours at RT. The solvents are evaporated under reduced pressure and the residue is dissolved in EtOAc (1000 ml) and washed with water (3x 750 ml). The organic phase is dried over MgS04, filtered and the solvent is evaporated under reduced pressure. The residue is purified by CC with EtOAc / hexane = 2 / 1to give 36.68 g of the title compound as an amorphous white powder. tR [min] = 0.73; [M+H]+ = 450.96

For the cardio-renal syndrome, a Phase IIb program with the investigational new drug Molidustat (BAY 85-3934) is under initiation in patients with anemia associated with chronic kidney disease and/or end-stage renal disease. Molidustat is a novel inhibitor of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) prolyl hydroxylase (PH) which stimulates erythropoietin (EPO) production and the formation of red blood cells. Phase I data have shown that inhibition of HIF-PH by Molidustat results in an increase in endogenous production of EPO.

Abstract Image

Through application of our multivalent approach to drug discovery we previously reported the first discovery of dual pharmacology MABA bronchodilators, exemplified by 1. Herein we describe the subsequent lead optimization of both muscarinic antagonist and β2 agonist activities, through modification of the linker motif, to achieve 24 h duration of action in a guinea pig bronchoprotection model. Concomitantly we targeted high lung selectivities, low systemic exposures and identified crystalline forms suitable for inhalation devices. This article culminates with the discovery of our first clinical candidate 12f (TD-5959, GSK961081, batefenterol). In a phase 2b trial, batefenterol produced statistical and clinically significant differences compared to placebo and numerically greater improvements in the primary end point of trough FEV1 compared to salmeterol after 4 weeks of dosing in patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

U.S. Patent Publication No. 2005/0203133 to Mammen et al. discloses novel biphenyl compounds that are expected to be useful for treating pulmonary disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. In particular, the compound biphenyl-2-ylcarbamic acid l-(2-{[4-(4-carbamoylpiperidin-l-ylmethyl) benzoyl]methylamino}ethyl)piperidin-4-yl ester is specifically described in this application as possessing muscarinic receptor antagonist or anticholinergic activity.

The compound of formula I has been named using the commercially-available AutoNom software (MDL, San Leandro, California).

Therapeutic agents useful for treating pulmonary or respiratory disorders are advantageously administered directly into the respiratory tract by inhalation. In this regard, several types of pharmaceutical inhalation devices have been developed for administering therapeutic agents by inhalation including dry powder inhalers (DPI),

metered-dose inhalers (MDI) and nebulizer inhalers. When preparing pharmaceutical compositions and formulations for use in such devices, it is highly desirable to have a crystalline form of the therapeutic agent that is neither hygroscopic nor deliquescent and which has a relatively high melting point thereby allowing the material to be micronized without significant decomposition. Although crystalline freebase forms of the compound of formula I have been reported in U.S. Patent Publication No. 2007/0112027 to Axt et al. as Form I and Form II, the crystalline freebase forms of the present invention have different and particularly useful properties, including higher melting points

The suspension was warmed to 53±3 0C and 1OM NaOH (317 mL) was added to the stirred mixture, while maintaining the temperature of the mixture above 50 0C. The mixture was stirred for approximately 5 minutes at 53±3 0C before allowing the layers to settle. The layers were then separated and the aqueous layer was removed. Water (3.16 L) was added to the organic layer while maintaining the temperature of the mixture above 50 0C. The mixture was stirred for 5 minutes at 53±3 0C before allowing the layers to settle. The layers were separated and the water layer was removed. Isopropyl acetate (6.33 L) was added and then about 10 volumes of distillate were collected by atmospheric distillation. This step was repeated with additional isopropyl acetate (3.2 L). After the second distillation, the temperature of the clear solution was reduced to 53±3 0C, then seeded with a suspension of the biphenyl-2-ylcarbamic acid l-(2-{[4-(4-carbamoylpiperidin-l-ylmethyl)benzoyl]methylamino}ethyl)piperidin-4-yl ester crystalline freebase (Form III; 3.2 g) in isopropyl acetate (51 mL). The resulting suspension was stirred at 53±3 0C for 2 hours, then cooled to 10±3 0C over 4 hours. The suspension was stirred at 10±3 0C for at least 2 hours and then the solids were collected by filtration. The resulting filter cake was washed with isopropyl acetate (2 x 1.9 L) and the product was dried in vacuo at 50 0C to yield the title crystalline compound (C3SH43NsO4; MW 597.76; 382.5 g, 80.3% yield).

The suspension was warmed to 82±3 0C, and held at this temperature until complete dissolution was observed. The solution was then clarified into the crystallizer vessel, followed by rinsing with toluene (373 μL). Solids were observed in the crystallizer vessel, and the vessel was re-heated to 82±3 0C to effect dissolution, then cooled to 58±3 0C and seeded with a pre-sonicated (approximately 1 minute) of crystalline freebase (Form III; 1.9 g) in toluene (8 μL). The resulting suspension was allowed to stand at 58±3 0C for at least 4 hours, then cooled to 20±3 0C over 2 hours (approximate cooling rate of 0.33 °C/min). The suspension was stirred at 20±3 0C for at least 1 hour, then the solids were collected by filtration. The resulting filter cake was washed with toluene (2 x 1.2 L) and the product was dried in vacuo at 52±3 0C to yield the title crystalline compound (345.3 g, 92.7% yield).

EXAMPLE 4

Crystalline Freebase of Biphenyl-2-ylcarbamic Acid l-(2-{r4-(4-Carbamoylpiperidin-l- ylmethyl)benzoyllmethylamino|ethyl)piperidin-4-yl Ester (Form IV) Biphenyl-2-ylcarbamic acid l-(2-{[4-(4-carbamoylpiperidin-l-ylmethyl)benzoyl]methylamino}ethyl)piperidin-4-yl ester (prepared as described in Preparation 1; 2.5 g) was dissolved in MeCN (10 mL) to yield a viscous oily pale yellow material. Additional MeCN (5 mL) was added to dilute the material. The solution was seeded with crystalline freebase (20 mg; Form III prepared as described in Example 1) and stirred at room temperature for 90 minutes. A large amount of white precipitate (small crystals) was observed. The slurry was analyzed under a polarized light microscope and found to be birefringent.

Additional MeCN (3 mL) was added and the slurry was placed in a Metz SynlO block to thermocycle (0-40 0C in one hour blocks) at 800 rpm overnight. The Metz SynlO is a 10 position parallel reaction station that is static. Agitation of the solution/slurry was by a cross magnetic stirrer bar. The shaker block was a separate piece of equipment that was heated and cooled by an external Julabo bath. The material was removed at 0 0C. It was observed that the slurry had settled out, leaving a pale yellow solution above the white precipitate. The slurry was stirred and placed back in the shaker block to thermocycle.

The material was removed at 40 0C, and stirred at a high agitation rate at room temperature for 80 minutes. The slurry was again analyzed and found to be birefringent. The filter cake was isolated by vacuum filtration using a sinter funnel. MeCN (3 mL) was used to wet the filter paper and the filter cake was washed with MeCN prior to filtration. The cake was deliquored under vacuum for 40 minutes to yield 2.3 g of a flowing white powder. The material was placed in a piston dryer at 400C for 65 hours, to yield 2.2 g of the title crystalline compound as a white powder (99.6% purity).

U.S. Patent No. 7,228,657 to Mammen et al. discloses novel biphenyl compounds that are expected to be useful for treating pulmonary disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma. In particular, the compound biphenyl-2-ylcarbamic acid 1- (2- {[4-(4-carbamoylpiperidin-l-ylmethyl)benzoyl]methylamino}-ethyl)piperidin-4-yl ester is specifically described in this application as possessing muscarinic receptor antagonist or anticholiner ic activity, and is represented by formula I:

Figure imgf000002_0001

The compound of formula I is synthesized from the compound 8, which is described as being prepared from the oxidation of 2-(benzylmethylamino)ethanol to the aldehyde intermediate followed by reductive amination with biphenyl-2-yl-carbamic acid piperidin- 4-yl ester and debenzylation:

Figure imgf000003_0001
Figure imgf000003_0002

However, while this procedure performs well on small scale, the aldehyde intermediate is difficult to scale up due to its instability, and low yields were typically observed.

Thus, a need exists for an efficient process of preparing compound 8 as a pure material with high chemical purity and good overall yield, without having to isolate intermediates. This invention addresses those needs.

Therapeutic agents useful for treating pulmonary or respiratory disorders are advantageously administered directly into the respiratory tract by inhalation. In this regard, several types of pharmaceutical inhalation devices have been developed for administering therapeutic agents by inhalation including dry powder inhalers, metered- dose inhalers, and nebulizer inhalers. When preparing pharmaceutical compositions and formulations for use in such devices, it is highly desirable to have a crystalline form of the therapeutic agent that is neither hygroscopic nor deliquescent and which has a relatively high melting point thereby allowing the material to be micronized without significant decomposition.

A crystalline diphosphate of the compound of formula I has been reported in U.S. Patent No. 7,700,777 to Axt et al, and a crystalline freebase (identified as Form III) is described in U.S. Patent Application Publication No. 201 1/0015163 to Woollham. All of the aforementioned disclosures are incorporated herein by reference.

The compound of formula I is described as being prepared by reacting compound 8 with 4-carboxybenzaldehyde to form the aldehyde core 10:

Figure imgf000004_0001

which is then isolated prior to being combined with isonipicotamide in the presence of a reducing agent to form the compound of formula I. The crystalline diphosphate is prepared by contacting the separated and purified compound of formula I with phosphoric acid. The crystalline freebase (Form III) can then be prepared from the crystalline diphosphate.

A need also exists for an efficient process of preparing the crystalline freebase (Form III). It is desirable to develop a process that does not first require preparation of the crystalline diphosphate. This invention addresses those needs.

A solution of methyl-(2-oxoethyl)carbamic acid benzyl ester (23 g, 113.4 mmol, 1.05 eq.) in MeTHF (150 mL) was prepared and added to the ester mixture. The resulting mixture was heated to 30°C for a few minutes, then cooled to room temperature over 1 hour. The mixture was then cooled to 3°C and the temperature maintained for 1 hour. NaHB(OAc)3 (35.1 g, 170 mmol, 2.0 eq.) was added portion-wise while maintaining the internal temperature at 7±1°C. After addition, the mixture was allowed to warm to room temperature until the reaction was complete. A saturated solution of aHC03 (3000 mL) was added, stirred for 20 minutes, and the layers separated. This was repeated, after which the organic layer was dried over a2S04. The material was filtered, concentrated and dried under high vacuum to afford the title compound (43 g) as a thick colorless to pale yellow oil, which was used directly in the next step without purification.

The reaction vessel was sealed and stirred under hydrogen at atmospheric pressure for three hours. The mixture was then filtered, and the solids were washed MeTHF (10 mL).

The filtrate and washes were combined and concentrated under reduced pressure (250 mL removed). MTBE (100 mL) was added, and the solution again concentrated under reduced pressure (100 mL removed). MTBE (200 mL) was added and the solution was seeded with a few milligrams of biphenyl-2-yl-carbamic acid l-(2-methylaminoethyl) piperidin-4-yl ester, and the mixture was maintained for 3 hours. The solids were collected and the vessel and filter cake were washed with MTBE (2×15 mL). The material was dried to yield 13.2 g of the title compound (99.5% pure). This process was repeated to yield the title compound (12.5 g, 98.6% pure). The filtrate and washes were combined and concentrated under reduced pressure. MTBE (150 mL) was added and the solution was seeded with a few milligrams of biphenyl-2-yl-carbamic acid l-(2-methylaminoethyl) piperidin-4-yl ester, and the mixture was maintained for 20 hours. The solids were collected and the vessel and filter cake were washed with MTBE (2×15 mL). The material was dried to yield the title compound (5 g, 90% pure).

A portion of the three crops (13 g , 12 g, 4.5 g, respectively) were combined taken up in IPA (90 mL). The resulting slurry was heated to 45°C, then cooled to room temperature over 1 hour. The slurry was stirred for 5 hours at 25°C. The solids were collected and washed with IPA (2×15 mL). The solids were then dried for 1 hour to yield the title compound (25 g, >99% pure).
