Cadila Healthcare Limited

ZYDPLA1 is an orally active, small molecule NCE, discovered and developed by the Zydus Research Centre, the NCE research wing of Zydus. ZYDPLA1 is a novel compound in the Gliptin class of antidiabetic agents. It works by blocking the enzyme Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 (DPP-4), which inactivates the Incretin hormone GLP-1.

By increasing the GLP-1 levels, ZYDPLA1 glucose-dependently increases insulin secretion and lowers glucagon secretion. This results in an overall improvement in the glucose homoeostasis, including reduction in HbA1c and blood sugar levels.

In October 2013, Zydus received IND approval from the US FDA to initiate a phase I trial in type II diabetes

Zydus announces data presentations on ZYDPLA1 “A once-weekly small molecule DPP-IV inhibitor for treating diabetes”, at the ENDO conference in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Ahmedabad, India June 9, 2014 The Zydus group will be presenting data on its molecule ZYDPLA1 a novel compound in the Gliptin class of anti-diabetic agents during the joint meeting of the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society: ICE/ENDO 2014 to be held from June 21-24, 2014 in Chicago, Illinois.

ZYDPLA1, currently in Phase I clinical evaluation in USA, is an orally active, small molecule NCE, discovered and developed by the Zydus Research Centre. ZYDPLA1 works by blocking the enzyme Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 (DPP-4), which inactivates the Incretin hormone GLP-1. By increasing the GLP- 1 levels, ZYDPLA1 glucose-dependently increases insulin secretion. This results in an overall improvement in the glucose homoeostasis, including reduction in HbA1c and blood sugar levels.

The Chairman & Managing Director of Zydus, Mr. Pankaj R. Patel said, “Currently, all available DPP-4 inhibitors are dosed once-daily. ZYDPLA1 with a once-a-week dosing regimen would provide diabetic patients with a more convenient treatment alternative. ZYDPLA1 will offer sustained action, which will result in an improved efficacy profile.”

The abstract of Poster Number: LB-PP02-4 can also be viewed on the ENDO web program at https://endo.confex.com/endo/2014endo/webprogram/authora.html. The Poster Preview is scheduled on Sunday, June 22, 2014 at McCormick Place West.

The number of diabetics in the world is estimated to be over 360 million. In 2025 nearly half of the world’s diabetic population will be from India, China, Brazil, Russia and Turkey. The sales of the DPP IV inhibitors is expected to peak at almost $14 billion by 2022. Research in the field of anti-diabetic therapy seeks to address the problems of hypoglycemia, GI side effects, lactic acidosis, weight gain, CV risks, edema, potential immunogenicity etc., which pose a major challenge in the treatment of diabetes.

Zydus announces US FDA approval for initiating Phase I clinical trials of ‘ZYDPLA1’ – a novel next generation orally active, small molecule DPP-4 inhibitor to treat Type 2 Diabetes Ahmedabad, October 23, 2013
• Zydus strengthens its cardiometabolic pipeline with the addition of ZYDPLA1
• Novel next generation New Chemical Entity (NCE) would offer once-a-week oral treatment option, a significant benefit to Type-2 diabetic patients
Close on the heels of launching Lipaglyn, the breakthrough therapy to treat diabetic dyslipidemia and India’s first NCE to reach the market, the Zydus group announced the Phase I clinical trial approval from the USFDA for ZYDPLA1 – a Next Generation, long-acting DPP-4 Inhibitor.
ZYDPLA1 is an orally active, small molecule NCE, discovered and developed by the Zydus Research Centre, the NCE research wing of Zydus. ZYDPLA1 is a novel compound in the Gliptin class of antidiabetic agents.
It works by blocking the enzyme Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 (DPP-4), which inactivates the Incretin hormone GLP-1. By increasing the GLP-1 levels, ZYDPLA1 glucose-dependently increases insulin secretion and lowers glucagon secretion. This results in an overall improvement in the glucose homoeostasis, including reduction in HbA1c and blood sugar levels.
Currently, all available DPP-4 inhibitors are dosed once-daily. ZYDPLA1 with a once-a-week dosing regimen, would provide diabetic patients with a more convenient treatment alternative. ZYDPLA1 will offer sustained action, which will result in an improved efficacy profile.
Speaking on the new development, Mr. Pankaj R. Patel, Chairman and Managing Director, Zydus Group, said, “After a promising start with Lipaglyn, we take another big leap forward in the area of diabetic research and long term management of Type 2 diabetes. The IND approval by USFDA is another major regulatory milestone for us. We believe that ZYDPLA1 holds promise and would take us closer to our mission of reducing the burden of chronic diseases and addressing unmet medical needs in the treatment of diabetes.”
The number of diabetics in the world is estimated to be over 360 million. In 2025 nearly half of the world’s diabetic population will be from India, China, Brazil, Russia and Turkey. The sales of the DPPIV inhibitors is expected to peak at almost $14 billion by 2022. Research in the field of anti-diabetic therapy seeks to address the problems of hypoglycemia, GI side effects, lactic acidosis, weight gain, CV risks, edema, potential immunogenicity etc., which pose a major challenge in the treatment of diabetes.

DPP-4 inhibitors inhibit degradation of glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and GIP, the endogenous incretin hormones responsible for stimulating glucose-dependent insulin secretion. ZYDPLA1 is a novel and potent DPP-4 inhibitor under clinical development for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and has shown potential for once a week administration in humans. The in vitro effect of ZYDPLA1 was assessed using recombinant DPP-4 enzyme.  ZYDPLA1 competitively inhibited DPP-4 activity in vitro with an IC50 of 2.99 nM, and Ki of 9.3 nM. The calculated  Koff rate for ZYDPLA1 was 5.12 × 10–5S-1. ZYDPLA1 was more than 8000 fold selective for DPP-4 relative to DPP-8, and DPP-9, and was more than 10000 fold selective relative to fibroblast activation protein in vitro. The potency of ZYDPLA1 for DPP-4 inhibition was similar across the species. In C57BL/6J mice ZYDPLA1 administration showed a potent antihyperglycemic effect in oral glucose tolerance test. This effect was mediated through elevated circulating levels of GLP-1 and insulin. Potent antihyperglycemic  effect was also observed in Zucker fatty rats following meal tolerance test. Significant DPP-4 inhibition was observed for more than 48 hours in mice and rats and up to 168 hours in dogs and non-human primates. In conclusion, ZYDPLA1 is a potent, selective inhibitor of DPPP-4 that has the potential to become once a week therapy for treatment of type 2 diabetes.

INTRODUCTION

Linagliptin (BI-1356, trade names Tradjenta and Trajenta) is a DPP-4 inhibitor developed by Boehringer Ingelheim for treatment of type II diabetes.

Linagliptin (once-daily) was approved by the US FDA on 2 May 2011 for treatment of type II diabetes.[1] It is being marketed by Boehringer Ingelheim and Lilly.

  • Linagliptin, namely 8-(3R)-3-aminopiperidinyl)-7-butyn-2-yl-3-methyl-1-(4-methylquinazolin-2-ylmethyl)-3,7-dihydropurine-2,6-dione, of formula (A), is a long acting inhibitor of dipeptidylpeptidase-IV (DPP-IV) activity, at present under development for the treatment of type II diabetes mellitus.

    Figure imgb0001
  • The synthesis of Linagliptin is reported in US 7,407,955 , according to the scheme below, where 8-bromo xanthine of formula (B) is condensed with 3-(R)-Boc-aminopiperidine of formula (C) to obtain a compound of formula (D), which is converted to Linagliptin (A) by deprotection of the amine function

    Figure imgb0002
  • Optically active 3-aminopiperidine protected as the tert-butylcarbamate (Boc), compound (C), although commercially available, is very expensive and difficult to prepare; moreover in this process impurities are very difficult to remove, particularly on an industrial scale, in particular because of the Boc protective group. For this reason,US 2009/0192314 discloses a novel process for the preparation of Linagliptin (A) which makes use of a 3-(R)-aminopiperidine protected as a phthalimide of formula (E).

    Figure imgb0003
  • Accordingly, a compound of formula (E) can be prepared starting from 3-aminopyridine by hydrogenation, reaction with phthalic anhydride, resolution through diastereoisomeric salts using expensive D-tartaric acid, and then cleavage of the tartrate salt.
  • This intermediate is, however, still expensive and its use in the substitution reaction of the bromine derivative of formula (B) is still poorly efficient, as it takes place under drastic reaction conditions.
  • As it can be noted, these processes make use of drastic reaction conditions, or expensive, difficult to prepare starting materials, thus negatively affecting costs. There is therefore the need for an alternative synthetic route to provide Linagliptin or a salt thereof with high enantiomeric and chemical purity, from low cost starting materials.

US ‘955 is schematically represented in scheme

U.S. Patent No. 7,820,815 (“US ‘815) discloses a process for preparation of Linagliptin wherein it is prepared by deprotecting 1 -[(4-methyl-quinazolin-2-yl)methyl]-3- methyl-7-(2-butyn-1 -yl)-8-(3-(R)-phthalimidopiperidin-1 -yl)-xanthine of formula Ilia in presence of ethanolamine. The 1 -[(4-methyl-quinazolin-2-yl)methyl]-3-methyl-7-(2- butyn-1 -yl)-8-(3-(R)phthalimidopiperidin-1 -yl)-xanthine is prepared by condensing 1 -[(4- l methyl-quinazolin-2-yl)methyl]-3-methyl-7-(2-butyn-1 -yl)-8-bromo xanthine of formula III with (R)-3-phthalimidopiperidine of formula I la. The process disclosed in US ‘815 is schematically represented in scheme-ll.

PCT Publications WO 2004/018468 and WO 2006/048427 describe synthesis of Linagliptin. Crystalline forms of Linagliptin, Forms A, B, C, D, and E are described in the PCT Publication No. WO 2007/128721. According to WO 2007/128721, Linagliptin prepared according to Publication No.

WO 2004/018468 is present in ambient temperature as a mixture of two enantiotropic polymorphs. The temperature at which the two polymorphs transform into one another is 25±15° C. The pure high temperature form (polymorph A), can be obtained by heating the mixture to temperatures>40° C. The low temperature form (polymorph B) is obtained by cooling to temperatures<10° C.”.

According to WO 2007/128721, the transition point between forms A and B is at room temperature, such that they exist as a polymorphic mixture. In addition, WO 2007/128721 teaches that form D “is obtained if polymorph C is heated to a temperature of 30-100° C. or dried at this temperature”. Since the procedure to obtain form C according to this application includes drying at 70° C., the dried form C is expected to be obtained in admixture with form D.

WO 2007/128721 teaches that Form E is obtained only at high temperatures (after melting of form D at 150±3° C.), and therefore is not relevant industrially.

By employing a rhodium–Duanphos complex as the catalyst, β-alkyl (Z)-N-acetyldehydroamino esters were smoothly hydrogenated in a highly efficient and enantioselective way. Excellent enantioselectivities together with excellent yields were achieved for a series of substrates. An efficient approach for the synthesis of the intermediate of the orally administered anti-diabetic drugs Alogliptin and Linagliptin in the DPP-4 inhibitor class was also developed.

Mechanism of action

Linagliptin is an inhibitor of DPP-4, an enzyme that degrades the incretin hormones glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). Both GLP-1 and GIP increase insulin biosynthesis and secretion from pancreatic beta cells in the presence of normal and elevated blood glucose levels. GLP-1 also reduces glucagon secretion from pancreatic alpha cells, resulting in a reduction in hepatic glucose output. Thus, linagliptin stimulates the release of insulin in a glucose-dependent manner and decreases the levels of glucagon in the circulation.

  • [0183]
    (R)-3-N-tert-Butoxycarbonylaminopiperidine was reacted with 8-bromo-7-(but-2-ynyl)-3-methyl-1-(4-methyl-quinazolin-2-ylmethyl)-3,7-dihydro-purine-2,6-dione in the presence of base. The reaction mixture was heated overnight. When the reaction was complete, the reaction mixture was cooled to ambient temperature. The cooled reaction mixture was washed several times with water and separated. The resulting 1-[(4-methyl-quinazolin-2-yl)methyl]-3-methyl-7-(2-butyn-1-yl)-8-[(R)-3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-piperidin-1-yl]-2,6-dioxo-2,3,6,7-tetrahydro-1H-purine organic solution was greater than 95%. Purified by HPLC. An excess of aqueous HCl solution was added to the obtained 1-[(4-methylquinazolin-2-yl)methyl]-3-methyl-7-(2-butyn-1-yl)-8-[(R)-3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-piperidin-1-yl]-2,6-dioxo-2,3,6,7-tetrahydro-1H-purine organic solution. The resulting mixture was stirred under heating until complete conversion was observed. Aqueous base was added to the reaction. The resulting mixture was stirred and separated. The organic phase was washed with aqueous base and separated. A non-polar or moderately polar solvent was added to the resulting organic phase. The mixture was partially concentrated to achieve precipitation, and the concentrated mixture was cooled and filtered to provide the wet crude product. The crude product was re-crystallized from alcohol, filtered and dried in vacuum oven with heating to afford dry solid Form-XXII of (R)-8-(3-amino-piperidin-1-yl)-7-(but-2-ynyl)-3-methyl-1-(4-methyl-quinazolin-2-ylmethyl)-3,7-dihydro-purine-2,6-dione having more than 98% purity.
