GlaxoSmithKline  (previously  Glaxo Wellcome ) was developing elacridar, an inhibitor of the multidrug resistance transporter BCRP (breast cancer resistant protein), as an oral bioenhancer for the treatment of solid tumors.

Elacridar is an oral bioenhancer which had been in early clinical trials at GlaxoSmithKline for the treatment of cancer, however, no recent development has been reported. It is a very potent inhibitor of P-glycoprotein, an ABC-transporter protein that has been implicated in conferring multidrug resistance to tumor cells.

SYN

The condensation of 2-(4-nitrophenyl)ethyl bromide with 6,7-dimethoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline by means of K2CO3 and KI in DMF at 100 C gives 6,7-dimethoxy-2-[2-(4-nitrophenyl)ethyl]-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline,

Which is reduced with H2 over Pd/C in ethanol to yield the corresponding amine . Finally, this compound is condensed with 5-methoxy-9-oxo-9,10-dihydroacridine-4-carboxylic acid  by means of DCC and HOBt in DMF to afford the target carboxamide.

The intermediate 5-methoxy-9-oxo-9,10-dihydroacridine-4-carboxylic acidhas been obtained as follows: The condensation of 2-amino-3-methoxybenzoic acid  with 2-bromobenzoic acid  by means of K2CO3 and copper dust give the diphenylamine , which is cyclized to the target acridine Elacridar by means of POCl3 in refluxing acetonitrile.

Deuterated analogs of elacridar as P-gp/BCRP inhibitor by preventing efflux useful for treating cancer.

Elacridar, previously referred to as GF120918, is a compound with the structure of 9,10-dihydro-5-methoxy-9-oxo-N-[4-[2-(1 ,2,3,4-tetrahydro- 6,7-dimethoxy-2-isoquinolinyl)ethyl] phenyl]-4-acridine-carboxamide or, as sometimes written, N-4-[2-(1 ,2,3,4-tetrahydro-6,7-dimethoxy-2-isoquinolinyl)ethyl]-phenyl)-9,10-dihydro-5-methoxy- 9-oxo-4-acridine carboxamide. Elacridar was originally described as a P-gp selective inhibitor but is now recognized as a dual P-gp/BCRP inhibitor. (Matsson P, Pedersen JM, Norinder U, Bergstrom CA, and Artursson P 2009 Identification of novel specific and general inhibitors of the three major human ATP-binding cassette transporters P-gp, BCRP and MRP2 among registered drugs. Pharm Res 26:1816-1831 ).

003 Elacridar has been examined with some success both in vitro and in vivo as a P-gp and BCRP inhibitor. By way of example, in cancer patients, coadministration of elacridar with therapeutic agents such as paclitaxel (P-gp substrate) and topotecan (BCRP substrate) improved their oral absorption – presumably by preventing efflux into the intestinal lumen by P-gp/BCRP pumps located in the Gl tract. Similarly, in rodents, elacridar has been coadministered with some success with pump substrates such as morphine, amprenavir, imatinib, dasatinib, gefitinib, sorafenib, and sunitinib to increase drug levels in the brain (by blocking efflux mediated by P-gp and BCRP at the blood brain barrier). A summary of some of these studies can be found in a study report by Sane et al. (Drug Metabolism And Disposition 40:1612-1619, 2012).

004 Administration of elacridar has several limitations. By way of example, elacridar has unfavorable physicochemical properties; it is practically insoluble in water, making it difficult to formulate as, for example, either an injectable or oral dosage form. Elacridar’s poor solubility and high lipophilicity result in dissolution rate-limited absorption from the gut lumen.

005 A variety of approaches have been pursued in order to increase efficacy of elacridar. For example, United States Patent Application Publication 20140235631 discloses a nanoparticle formulation in order to increase oral bioavailability.

006 Sane et al. (Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Vol. 102, 1343-1354 (2013)) report a micro-emulsion formulation of elacridar to try and overcome its dissolution-rate-limited bioavailability.

007 Sawicki et al. (Drug Development and Industrial Pharmacy, 2017 VOL. 43, NO. 4, 584-594) described an amorphous solid dispersion formulation of freeze dried elacridar hydrochloride-povidone K30-sodium dodecyl sulfate. However, when tested in healthy human volunteers, extremely high doses (e.g. 1000 mg) were required to achieve a Cmax of 326 ng/ml. (Sawicki et al. Drug Deliv. and Transl.

Res. Published online 18 Nov 2016).

008 Montesinos et al. (Mol Pharm. 2015 Nov 2; 12(11 ):3829-38) attempted several PEGylated liposome formulations of elacridar which resulted in a partial increase in half life, but without an increase in efficacy when co-administered with a therapeutic agent.

009 Because of the great unpredictability in the art and poor correlations in many cases between animal and human data, the value of such formulation attempts await clinical trial.

0010 Studies of the whole body distribution of a microdose of 11C elacridar after intravenous injection showed high level accumulation in the liver (Bauer et al. J Nucl Med. 2016;57:1265-1268). This has led some to suggest that systemic levels of elacridar are also substantially limited by clearance in the liver.

0011 A potentially attractive strategy for improving metabolic stability of some drugs is deuterium modification. In this approach, one attempts to slow the CYP-mediated metabolism of a drug or to reduce the rate of formation of inactive metabolites by replacing one or more hydrogen atoms with deuterium atoms.

Deuterium is a safe, stable, non-radioactive isotope of hydrogen. Compared to hydrogen, deuterium forms stronger bonds with carbon. In select cases, the increased bond strength imparted by deuterium can positively impact the absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and/or toxicity (‘ADMET’) properties of a drug, creating the potential for improved drug efficacy, safety, and/or tolerability. At the same time, because the size and shape of deuterium are essentially identical to those of hydrogen, replacement of hydrogen by deuterium would not be expected to affect the biochemical potency and selectivity of the drug as compared to the original chemical entity that contains only hydrogen.

0012 Over the past 35 years, the effects of deuterium substitution on the rate of metabolism have been reported for a very small percentage of approved drugs (see, e.g., Blake, M I et al, J Pharm Sci, 1975, 64:367-91 ; Foster, A B, Adv Drug Res 1985, 14:1 -40 (“Foster”); Kushner, D J et al, Can J Physiol Pharmacol 1999, 79-88; Fisher, M B et al, Curr Opin Drug Discov Devel, 2006, 9:101 -09 (“Fisher”)). The results have been variable and unpredictable. For some compounds, deuteration indeed caused decreased metabolic clearance in vivo. For others, no change in metabolism was observed. Still others demonstrated increased metabolic clearance. The great unpredictability and variability in deuterium effects has led experts to question or dismiss deuterium modification as a viable drug design strategy for inhibiting metabolism (see Foster at p. 35 and Fisher at p. 101 ).

0013 The effects of deuterium modification on a drug’s metabolic properties are not predictable even when deuterium atoms are incorporated at known sites of metabolism. Only by actually preparing and testing a deuterated drug can one determine if and how the rate of metabolism will differ from that of its non-deuterated counterpart. See, for example, Fukuto et al. (J. Med. Chem. 1991 , 34, 2871 -76). Many drugs have multiple sites where metabolism is possible. The site(s) where deuterium substitution is required and the extent of deuteration necessary to see an effect on metabolism, if any, will be different for each drug.

0014 Considering elacridar’s challenging physicochemical and ADMET properties in humans, in spite of recent formulation advancements, there remains a need in the art for elacridar analogs that can achieve higher, less variable levels in the systemic circulation, at the blood-brain barrier, and elsewhere to optimize efflux inhibition.

Example 1 : Synthesis of Instant Analogs and Compositions

00179 This example demonstrates a synthetic method for making elacridar analogs, deuterium substitutions based upon the deuteration of the starting compounds. The synthesis and the analog numbers refer to Figure 4.

00180 Step 1

00181 A 12L three-neck flask was charged with compound 1 (270.5 g, 1.618 mol), compound 2 (357.8 g, 1.78 mol, 1.1 eq.), K2C03 (447 g, 3.236 mol, 2.0 eq), Cu (20.6 g, 0.324 mol, 0.2 eq.) and ethanol (2.7 L) and the resulting mixture was heated to reflux under nitrogen for 1 hour. The reaction mixture was cooled to room

temperature after the reaction progress was checked with LC-MS. Water (2.7 L) was added and the mixture was filtered through a pad of Celite. The Celite was washed with water (1.35L) and the combined filtrate was adjusted to pH~2 by addition of concentrated HCI (~410 mL) over 15 min. The resulting suspension was stirred at 10°C for 1.5 hours and the solid was filtered, washed with water (2.7 L) and dried at 45°C using a vacuum oven for 2 days to give compound 3 (465 g, ~100%) as a yellow solid.

00182 Step 2

00183 A suspension of compound 3 (498 g, 1.734 mol) in acetonitrile (4.0 L) was heated to reflux under stirring. To the suspension was added POCb (355.5 mL,

3.814 mol, 2.2 eq.) drop-wise over 2h. The mixture was heated at reflux for 2.5h and then cooled to 30 °C. To the mixture was slowly added water (3.0 L) and the resultant thick slurry was heated to reflux for 1 5h. The slurry was cooled to 10 °C and filtered. The solid was washed with water (2 X 1.0 L), acetonitrile (2 X 1.0 L) and dried using a vacuum oven overnight at 45 °C to afford compound 4 (426 g, 91.3%) as a yellow solid.

00184 Step 3:

00185 A 12L three-neck flask was charged with compound 5 (475g, 2.065 mol), compound 6 (474.8g, 2.065 mol), K2C03 (314g, 2.273 mol), Kl (68.6g, 0.413 moL) and DMF (2.5L) and the resulting mixture was heated to 70 °C and stirred for 2.5 hours. After LC-MS showed that the reaction was complete, the mixture was cooled to 50 °C and methanol (620 ml_) was added. Then the mixture was cooled to 30 °C and water (4.75 L) was added. The resulting suspension was cooled to 10 °C and for 1 hour. The solid was filtered, washed with water (2 X 2.5 L) and air dried for 2 days to afford the compound 7 (630 g, 89.1 %) as a yellow solid.

00186 Step 4

00187 To a solution of compound 7 (630 g, 1.84 mol) in THF/ethanol (8 L at 1 :1 ) was added Pd/C (10%, 50% wet, 30 g). The mixture was stirred under an

atmosphere of hydrogen (1 atm, balloon) at 15-20 °C for 4h. The reaction mixture was filtered through a pad of Celite and the pad was washed with TFIF (1.0 L). The filtrate was concentrated to 3 volumes under vacuum and hexanes (4.0 L) was added. The resulting slurry was cooled to 0 °C and stirred for 1 h. The solid was filtered and washed with hexanes (2 X 500 ml_) and air dried overnight to afford the compound 8 (522 g, 90.8%) as an off -white solid.

00188 Step 5

00189 A 5L three-neck flask was charged with compound 4 (250 g, 0.929 mol, 1 eq.), compound 8 (290 g, 0.929mol, 1 eq.) and DMF (2.5 L) and the resulting mixture was stirred at room temperature until it became a clear solution. To the solution was added TBTU (328 g, 1.021 mol, 1.1 eq.), followed by triethylamine (272 ml_, 1.95 mol, 2.1 eq.) and the resulting mixture was stirred at room temperature under nitrogen overnight. The mixture was poured slowly into water (7.5 L) with stirring and the resulting suspension was stirred for 1 hour at room temperature. The solid was filtered and washed with water (2 X 7 L). The solid thus obtained was dried using a vacuum oven at 50 °C for two days and 509.0 g (97.3%) of compound 9 was obtained as yellow solid.

00190 Step 6

00191 300.0 g (0.532 mol) of compound 9 was suspended in acetic acid (1.2 L) and heated to 70 °C. The resultant solution was hot filtered and heated to 70°C again. Preheated ethanol (70 °C, 3.6 L) was then added. To this solution was added concentrated HCI (66.0 ml_, 0.792 mol, 1.5 eq.) dropwise over 30 min. The resulting solution was stirred at 70°C until crystallization commenced (~about 20 min). The suspension was cooled to room temperature over 3h, filtered, washed with ethanol (2 X 1.8 L) and dried using a vacuum oven at 60°C over the weekend to afford compound 10 (253.0 g, 79.2%) as a brown solid.

Example 2 Manufacture of a Deuterated Elacridar analog EE60.

00192 EE60 is synthesized by the procedure shown in Figure 4 and as continued in Figure 5.

00193 The structure of EE60 is confirmed as follows: Samples of 5 pi are measured using an LC system comprising an UltiMate 3000 LC Systems (Dionex, Sunnyvale, CA) and an 2996 UV diode array detector (Waters). Samples are injected on to a 100 x 2mm (ID) 3.5 pm ZORBAX Extend-C18 column (Agilent, Santa Clara, CA). Elution is done at a flow rate of 0.4 mL/min using a 5 minute gradient from 20% to 95% B (mobile phase A was 0.1 % FICOOFI in water (v/v) and mobile phase B was methanol). 95% B is maintained for 1 min followed by re-equilibration at 20% B. Chromeleon (v6.8) is used for data acquisition and peak processing.

Example 3: Manufacture of a Deuterated Elacridar analog EE59

00194 EE59 was synthesized by the procedure shown in Figure 6.

00195 The resulting yellowish brown precipitate was removed by filtration and the filter cake was dried overnight (72 mg). Analysis of the filter cake by LCMS indicated the presence of a single peak at multiple wavelengths (215 nm, 220 nm, 254 nm,

280 nm); each peak confirmed the presence of the desired product (LC retention time, 5.3 min; m/z = 575 [(M+FI)+]).

00196 1H NMR of EE598 revealed 1H NMR (400 MHz, DMSO-d6) d 12.3 ( s , 1H), 10.6 (s, 1H), 8.51-8.46 (m, 2H), 7.80 (d, J = 8.8 Hz, 1H), 7.66 (d, J = 7.6 Hz, 2H), 7.45-7.38 (m, 2H), 7.32-7.25 (m, 3H), 6.66 (d, J = 6.8 Hz, 2H), 3.62 (s, 2H), 2.86 (t, J = 6.8 Hz, 2H), 2.66 (m, 4H).

Example 4: Demonstration of superior properties of instant analogs and compositions: in vivo ADMET.

00197 Pharmacologic studies are performed according to Ward KW et al (2001 Xenobiotica 317783-797) and Ward and Azzarano (JPET 310:703-709, 2004).

Briefly, instant analogs are administered solutions in 10% aqueous polyethylene glycol-300 (PEG-300) or 6% Cavitron with 1 % dimethyl sulfoxide, or as well triturated suspensions in 0.5% aqueous HPMC containing 1 % Tween 80. Blood samples are collected at various times up to 48 h after drug administration; plasma samples are prepared and at “70°C until analysis.

00198 Mice. Instant analogs are administered to four groups of animals by oral gavage (10 ml/kg dose volume). Three groups receive instant analogs as a suspension at 3, 30, or 300 mg/kg, and the fourth group receive instant analogs as a solution in Cavitron at 3 mg/kg. Blood sampling in mice is performed via a tail vein at 0.5, 1 , 2, 4, 8, 24, and 32 h postdose.

00199 Rats. A total of seven groups of animals receive instant analogs by oral gavage (10 ml/kg). Three groups receive instant analogs as a suspension at 3, 30, or 300 mg/kg, and a fourth and fifth group each receive instant analogs as a solution in Cavitron or PEG-300, respectively, at 3 mg/kg. A sixth and seventh group of rats with indwelling hepatic portal vein catheters receive instant analogs by oral gavage (10 ml/kg) as a suspension at 3 or 30 mg/kg, respectively. Blood sampling in rats are performed via a lateral tail vein; samples are also obtained from the hepatic portal vein catheter. Blood samples are obtained before dosing and at 5, 15, 30, and 45 min, and 1 ,1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 24, and 32 h postdose.

00200 Dogs. Dogs receive instant analogs by lavage (4 ml/kg) on three separate occasions with dosages at 3 and 30 mg/kg as a suspension and 3 mg/kg as a solution in Cavitron. Blood samples are obtained from a cephalic vein and from the hepatic portal vein catheter before dosing and at 5, 15, 30, and 45 min and 1 , 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 24, 32, and 48 h postdose.

00201 Monkeys. Monkeys receive instant analogs by oral gavage (8 ml/kg dose volume) on three separate occasions at dosages of 3 and 30 mg/kg as a suspension and 3 mg/kg as a solution in Cavitron. Blood samples are obtained from a femoral vein via an indwelling catheter and from the hepatic portal vascular access port

before dosing and at 5, 15, and 30 min and 1 , 1.5, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 24, 32, and 48 h postdose.

00202 Humans. Healthy volunteers receive instant analogs orally at doses ranging from 25 mg to 1000 mg. Blood samples are obtained and analyzed for analog concentrations at 0, 15 min, 30 min, 45 min, 60 min, 90 min, 120 min, 180 min, 2 hr, 4 hr, 6hr, 8 hr, 12 hr, 24 hr, and 48 h after administration .

Analytical Methods

00203 Instant analogs are isolated from samples by precipitation with acetonitrile and quantified by LC/MS/MS coupled with an atmospheric pressure chemical ionization interface (475°C). Internal standards [in acetonitrile/10 mM ammonium formate, pH 3.0; 95:5 (v/v)] are added to 50 pi samples and vortexed and centrifuged for 30 min at 4000 rpm. The supernatants are injected onto the LC/MS/MS system using an HTS PAL autosampler (CTC Analytics, Zwingen, Switzerland) coupled to an Aria TX2 high-throughput liquid chromatographic system using turbulent flow technology (Cohesive Technologies, Franklin, MA) in focus mode. The mobile phase consists of a mixture of 0.1 % formic acid in water and 0.1 % formic acid in

acetonitrile. The turbulent flow column is a 0.5 X 50-mm Cyclone P column

(Cohesive Technologies) in series to a 2 X 20 mm, 4 pm Polar RP (Phenomenex, Torrance, CA) analytical column. Positive-ion multiple reaction monitoring is used for the detection of instant analogs and internal standard and the selected precursor and product ions are mlz 564 and 252, respectively. Using a (1/x) weighted linear regression analysis of the calibration curve, linear responses in analyte/internal standard peak area ratios are observed for instant analog concentrations ranging from 2 to 10,000 ng/ml.

00204 Alternatively, useful analytical methods to demonstrate the surprising and superior properties of the instant elacridar analogs are the methods as described by Stokvis et al, J Mass Spectr 2004: 39: 1122-1130.

Release

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today expanded the approved use of Nucala (mepolizumab) to treat adult patients with eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), a rare autoimmune disease that causes vasculitis, an inflammation in the wall of blood vessels of the body. This new indication provides the first FDA-approved therapy specifically to treat EGPA.

According to the National Institutes of Health, EGPA (formerly known as Churg-Strauss syndrome) is a condition characterized by asthma, high levels of eosinophils (a type of white blood cell that helps fight infection), and inflammation of small- to medium-sized blood vessels. The inflamed vessels can affect various organ systems including the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, skin, heart and nervous system. It is estimated that approximately 0.11 to 2.66 new cases per 1 million people are diagnosed each year, with an overall prevalence of 10.7 to 14 per 1,000,000 adults.

“Prior to today’s action, patients with this challenging, rare disease did not have an FDA-approved treatment option,” said Badrul Chowdhury, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Rheumatology Products in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “The expanded indication of Nucala meets a critical, unmet need for EGPA patients. It’s notable that patients taking Nucala in clinical trials reported a significant improvement in their symptoms.”

The FDA granted this application Priority Review and Orphan Drug designations. Orphan Drug designation provides incentives to assist and encourage the development of drugs for rare diseases.

Nucala was previously approved in 2015 to treat patients age 12 years and older with a specific subgroup of asthma (severe asthma with an eosinophilic phenotype) despite receiving their current asthma medicines. Nucala is an interleukin-5 antagonist monoclonal antibody (IgG1 kappa) produced by recombinant DNA technology in Chinese hamster ovary cells.

Nucala is administered once every four weeks by subcutaneous injection by a health care professional into the upper arm, thigh, or abdomen.

The safety and efficacy of Nucala was based on data from a 52-week treatment clinical trial that compared Nucala to placebo. Patients received 300 milligrams (mg) of Nucala or placebo administered subcutaneously once every four weeks while continuing their stable daily oral corticosteroids (OCS) therapy. Starting at week four, OCS was tapered during the treatment period. The primary efficacy assessment in the trial measured Nucala’s treatment impact on disease remission (i.e., becoming symptom free) while on an OCS dose less than or equal to 4 mg of prednisone. Patients receiving 300 mg of Nucala achieved a significantly greater accrued time in remission compared with placebo. A significantly higher proportion of patients receiving 300 mg of Nucala achieved remission at both week 36 and week 48 compared with placebo. In addition, significantly more patients who received 300 mg of Nucala achieved remission within the first 24 weeks and remained in remission for the remainder of the 52-week study treatment period compared with patients who received the placebo.

The most common adverse reactions associated with Nucala in clinical trials included headache, injection site reaction, back pain, and fatigue.

Nucala should not be administered to patients with a history of hypersensitivity to mepolizumab or one of its ingredients. It should not be used to treat acute bronchospasm or status asthmaticus. Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, angioedema, bronchospasm, hypotension, urticaria, rash, have occurred. Patients should discontinue treatment in the event of a hypersensitivity reaction. Patients should not discontinue systemic or inhaled corticosteroids abruptly upon beginning treatment with Nucala. Instead, patients should decrease corticosteroids gradually, if appropriate.

Health care providers should treat patients with pre-existing helminth infections before treating with Nucala because it is unknown if Nucala would affect patients’ responses against parasitic infections. In addition, herpes zoster infections have occurred in patients receiving Nucala. Health care providers should consider vaccination if medically appropriate.

The FDA granted approval of Nucala to GlaxoSmithKline.

GSK-3008348, an integrin alpha(v)beta6 antagonist, is being developed at GlaxoSmithKline in early clinical studies for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic disease characterised by a progressive decline in lung function, due to excessive deposition of extracellular matrix (collagen) within the pulmonary interstitium. It affects approximately 500,000 people in the USA and Europe and is poorly treated. IPF inexorably leads to respiratory failure due to obliteration of functional alveolar units. Patients’ mean life-expectancy is less than 3 years following diagnosis.

IPF therefore represents a major unmet medical need for which novel therapeutic approaches are urgently required.1 Pirfenidone (EsbrietTM from Roche), a non-selective kinase inhibitor, is approved for mild and moderate IPF patients in Japan, Europe, Canada and China and for all IPF patients in USA . Furthermore, nintedanib (OfevTM formerly BIBF-1120 from Boehringer-Ingelheim), a multiple tyrosine-kinase inhibitor targeting vascular endothelial factor receptor, fibroblast growth factor and platelet derived growth factor receptor is approved for all patients with IPF in USA and Europe.  Both compounds are administered orally twice or three times per day at high total doses (pirfenidone at 2.4 g/day and nintedanib at 300 mg/day).

Patient compliance is limited by tolerability due to gastro-intenstinal and phototoxicity issues, which require dose titration. (S)-3-(3-(3,5-Dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)phenyl)-4-((R)-3-(2-(5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-1,8- naphthyridin-2-yl)ethyl)pyrrolidin-1-yl)butanoic acid hydrochloride  is a first in class compound (descovered by GlaxoSmithKline) undergoing currently Phase I clinical trials for the treatment of IPF.  It is a non-peptidic αvβ6 integrin inhibitor and in cell adhesion assays has high affinity for the human receptor with a pIC50 of 8.4, and lower affinity for other integrins, such as αvβ3 6.0, αvβ5 5.9 and αvβ8 7.7. Inhibition of integrin αvβ6 is thought to prevent pulmonary fibrosis without exacerbating inflammation.

Integrin superfamily proteins are heterodimeric cell surface receptors, composed of an alpha and beta subunit. 18 alpha and 8 beta subunits have been reported, which have been demonstrated to form 24 distinct alpha/beta heterodimers. Each chain comprises a large extracellular domain (>640 amino acids for the beta subunit, >940 amino acids for the alpha subunit), with a transmembrane spanning region of around 20 amino acids per chain, and generally a short cytoplasmic tail of 30-50 amino acids per chain. Different integrins have been shown to participate in a plethora of cellular biologies, including cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix, cell-cell interactions, and effects on cell migration, proliferation, differentiation and survival (Barczyk et al, Cell and Tissue Research, 2010, 339, 269).

Integrin receptors interact with binding proteins via short protein-protein binding interfaces with ligands and the integrin family can be grouped into sub-families that share similar binding recognition motifs in such ligands. A major subfamily is the RGD-integrins, which recognise ligands that contain an RGD (Arginine-glycine-aspartic acid) motif within their protein sequence. There are 8 integrins in this sub-family, namely ανβι, ανβ3, νβ5ι νβ ανβδ, αι¾β3, α5βι, α8βι, where nomenclature demonstrates that ανβι, ανβ3, νβ5ι νβ & ανβδ share a common V subunit with a divergent β subunit, and ανβι, α5βι & α8βι share a common β!subunit with a divergent a subunit. The βι subunit has been shown to pair with 11 different a subunits, of which only the 3 listed above commonly recognise the RGD peptide motif. (Humphries et al, Journal of Cell Science, 2006, 119, 3901).

Within the 8 RGD-binding integrins are different binding affinities and specificities for different RGD-containing ligands. Ligands include proteins such as fibronectin, vitronectin, osteopontin, and the latency associated peptides (LAPs) of Transforming growth factor βι and β3 (ΤΰΡβι and ΤΰΡβ3). The binding to the LAPs of ΤΰΡβι and ΤΰΡβ3 has been shown in several systems to enable activation of the ΤΰΡβι and ΤΰΡβ3 biological activities, and subsequent ΤΰΡβ- driven biologies (Worthington et al, Trends in Biochemical Sciences, 2011, 36, 47). The specific binding of RGD integrins to such ligands depends on a number of factors, depending on the cell phenotype. The diversity of such ligands, coupled with expression patterns of RGD-binding integrins, generates multiple opportunities for disease intervention. Such diseases include fibrotic diseases (Margadant et al, EMBO reports, 2010, 11, 97), inflammatory disorders, cancer (Desgrosellier et al, Nature Reviews Cancer, 2010, 10, 9), restenosis, and other diseases with an angiogenic component (Weis et al, Cold Spring. Harb. Perspect Med.2011, 1, a006478).

A significant number of av integrin antagonists (Goodman et al, Trends in Pharmacological Sciences, 2012, 33, 405) have been disclosed in the literature including antagonist antibodies, small peptides and compounds. For antibodies these include the pan-av antagonist Intetumumab, the selective ανβ3 antagonist Etaracizumab, and the selective a 6 antagonist STX-100. Cilengitide is a cyclic peptide antagonist that inhibits both ανβ3 and ανβ5, and SB-267268 is an example of a compound (Wilkinson-Berka et al, Invest. Ophthalmol. Vis. Sci, 2006, 47, 1600), which inhibits both ανβ3 and ανβ5. Invention of compounds to act as antagonists of differing combinations of av integrins enables novel agents to be generated and tailored for specific disease indications.

Pulmonary fibrosis represents the end stage of several interstitial lung diseases, including the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, and is characterised by the excessive deposition of extracellular matrix within the pulmonary interstitium. Among the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) represents the commonest and most fatal condition with a median survival of 3 to 5 years following diagnosis. Fibrosis in IPF is generally progressive, refractory to current pharmacological intervention and inexorably leads to respiratory failure due to obliteration of functional alveolar units. IPF affects approximately 500,000 people in the USA and Europe. This condition therefore represents a major unmet medical need for which novel therapeutic approaches are urgently required (Datta A et al, Novel therapeutic approaches for pulmonary fibrosis, British Journal of Pharmacology’2011163: 141-172).

There are strong in vitro, experimental animal and IPF patient immunohistochemistry data to support a key role for the epithelial-restricted integrin, α in the activation of TGF-βΙ. Expression of this integrin is low in normal epithelial tissues and is significantly up-regulated in injured and inflamed epithelia including the activated epithelium in IPF. Targeting this integrin therefore reduces the theoretical possibility of interfering with wider TGF-β homeostatic roles. Partial inhibition of the a 6 integrin by antibody blockade has been shown to prevent pulmonary fibrosis without exacerbating inflammation (Horan GS etal Partial inhibition of integrin a 6 prevents pulmonary fibrosis without exacerbating inflammation. Am J Respir Crit Care Med2008177: 56-65)

The ανβ3 integrin is expressed on a number of cell types including vascular endothelium where it has been characterised as a regulator of barrier resistance. Data in animal models of acute lung injury and sepsis have demonstrated a significant role for this integrin in vascular leak since knockout mice show markedly enhanced vessel leak leading to pulmonary oedema or death. Furthermore antibodies capable of inhibiting ανβ3 function caused dramatic increases in monolayer permeability in human pulmonary artery and umbilical vein endothelial cells in response to multiple growth factors. These data suggest a protective role for ανβ3 in the maintenance of vascular endothelial integrity following vessel stimulation and that inhibition of this function could drive pathogenic responses in a chronic disease setting (Su et al Absence of integrin ανβ3 enhances vascular leak in mice by inhibiting endothelial cortical actin formation Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2012 185: 58-66). Thus, selectivity for cl over α 3 may provide a safety advantage.

It is an object of the invention to provide ανβ6 antagonists.

Synthesis and determination of absolute configuration of a non-peptidic αvβ6 integrin antagonist for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Abstract

A diastereoselective synthesis of (S)-3-(3-(3,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)phenyl)-4-((R)-3-(2-(5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-1,8-naphthyridin-2-yl)ethyl)pyrrolidin-1-yl)butanoic acid (1), a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, which is currently undergoing Phase I clinical trials is reported. The key steps in the synthesis involved alkylation of 2-methylnaphthyridine with (R)-N-Boc-3-(iodomethyl)-pyrrolidine, and an asymmetric Rh-catalysed addition of an arylboronic acid to a 4-(N-pyrrolidinyl)crotonate ester. The overall yield of the seven linear step synthesis was 8% and the product was obtained in >99.5% ee proceeding with 80% de. The absolute configuration of 1 was established by an alternative asymmetric synthesis involving alkylation of an arylacetic acid using Evans oxazolidinone chemistry, acylation using the resulting 2-arylsuccinic acid, and reduction. The absolute configuration of the benzylic asymmetric centre was established as (S).

GSK-126 is an inhibitor of mutant EZH2, a histone methyltransferase (HMT) that exhibits point mutations at key residues Tyr641 and Ala677; this compound does not appreciably affect WT EZH2. EZH2 is responsible for modulating expression of a variety of genes. GSK-126 competes with cofactor S-adenylmethionine (SAM) for binding to EZH2. GSK-126 displays anticancer chemotherapeutic activity by inhibiting proliferation in in vitro and in vivo models of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

6-Bromo-1-(sec-butyl)-N-((4,6-dimethyl-2-oxo-1 ,2-dihydropyridin-3-yl)methy methyl-1 H-indole-4-carboxamide (racemic mixture, 1.9 g) was resolved by chiral HPLC (column : Chiralpak AD-H, 5 microns, 50 mm x 250 mm, UV detection :240 nM, flow rate: 100 mL/min, T = 20 deg C, eluent: 60:40:0.1 n-heptane:ethanol:isopropylamine

(isocratic)). For each run, 100 mg of the racemic compound was dissolved in 30 volumes (3.0 ml.) of warm ethanol with a few drops of isopropylamine added. A total of 19 runs were performed. Baseline resolution was observed for each run. The isomer that eluted at 8.3-10.1 min was collected (following concentration) as a white solid, which was dried at 50 °C (< 5 mm Hg) to afford 901 mg, and was determined to be the S isomer* (Ex. 267; chiral HPLC: >99.5% ee (no R isomer detected). The isomer that eluted at 10.8-13.0 min was collected as a white solid, which was dried at 50 °C (< 5 mm Hg) to afford 865 mg, and was determined to be the R isomer* (Ex. 268; chiral HPLC: 99.2% ee; 0.4% S isomer detected). 1H NMR and LCMS were consistent with the parent racemate.

* The absolute configuration was determined by an independent synthesis of each enantiomer from the corresponding commercially available homochiral alcohols via Mitsunobu reaction. The sterochemical assignments were also consistent by vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) analysis.

Retosiban (GSK-221,149-A)[1][2] is an oral drug which acts as a selective, sub-nanomolar (Ki = 0.65 nM) oxytocin receptor antagonist with >1400-fold selectivity[3] over the related vasopressin receptors and is being developed by GlaxoSmithKline for the treatment of preterm labour.[4][5]

Retosibanis an oxytocin (OT) antagonist in phase III clinical trials at GlaxoSmithKline for the prevention of preterm labor. OT antagonism is widely known to inhibit spontaneous uterine contractions.

Retosiban is a diketopiperazine nonpeptide compound with high potency and selectivity for the OT receptor over vasopressin receptors.

This  candidate has been shown to block oxytocin-induced uterine contractions when administered intravenously and to exhibit oral activity

Preterm labor is a major clinical problem leading to death and disability in newborns and accounts for 10% of all births and causes 70% of all infant mortality and morbidity.(Goldenberg, R. L.; Rouse, D.Prevention of premature birth N. Engl. J. Med. 1998, 339, 313)
Oxytocin (OT) is a potent stimulant of uterine contractions and is responsible for the initiation of labor via the interaction with the OT receptors in the mammalian uterus. OT antagonists have been shown to inhibit uterine contractions and delay preterm delivery. So there is increasing interest in OT antagonists because of their potential application in the prevention of preterm labor.
Although several tocolytics have already been approved in clinical practice, they have harmful maternal or fetal side effects.(Enkin, M.; Kierse, M.; Neilson, J.; Preterm Labour: A Guide to Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth, 3rd ed.; Oxford University Press: Oxford, UK, 2000; pp 211225. )
The first clinically tested OT antagonist atosiban has a much more tolerable side effect profile and has recently been approved for use in Europe.
Atosiban SW.svgATOSIBAN

However, atosiban is a peptide and a mixed OT/vasopressin V1a receptor antagonist that has to be given by iv infusion and is not suitable for long-term maintenance treatment, as it is not orally bioavailable.((a) Bossmar, T.Treatment of preterm labor with the oxytocin and vasopressin antagonist atosiban J. Perinat. Med. 1998, 26, 458– 465

See also,(b) Coomarasamy, A.; Knox, E. M.; Gee, H.; Khan, K. S.Oxytocin antagonists for tocolysis in preterm labour—a systematic review Med. Sci. Monit. 2002, 8, RA268RA273)

Hence there has been considerable interest in overcoming the shortcomings of the peptide OT antagonists by identifying orally active nonpeptide OT antagonists with a higher degree of selectivity toward the vasopressin receptors (V1a, V1b, V2) with good oral bioavailability. Although several templates have been investigated as potential selective OT antagonists, few have achieved the required selectivity for the OT receptor vs the vasopressin receptors combined with the bioavailability and physical chemical properties required for an efficacious oral drug.(Borthwick, A. D.Oral Oxytocin Antagonists J. Med. Chem. 2010, 53, 65256538)
Therefore  the objective was to design a potent, orally active OT antagonist with high levels of selectivity over the vasopressin receptor with good oral bioavailability in humans that would delay labor safely by greater than seven days and with improved infant outcome, as shown by a reduced combined morbidity score.
The most potent of these was the 2,4-difluorophenyl dimethylamide 1, which has good in vitro (pKi = 9.2) and in vivo (IC50 = 227 nM) potency and is 20-fold more potent than atosiban in vitro. Compound 1 also has good pharmacokinetics with bioavailability >50% in both the rat and the dog.
Moreover, it is >500-fold selective over all three human vasopressin receptors (hV1aR, hV2R, and hV1bR) and has an acceptable P450 profile. In addition, it has a satisfactory safety profile in the genotoxicity screens and in the four day oral toxicity test in rats.

RETOSIBAN 106

However, 1 had poor aqueous solubility and high intrinsic clearance in human and cynomolgus monkey liver microsomes, so a compound was required that retained high antagonist potency and excellent pharmacokinetics in animal species seen with 1 but was more soluble and with improved human intrinsic clearance to decrease the risk of low bioavailability in humans.
first approach was to replace the 7-aryl ring with a five-membered heterocycle, which led to the oxazole Retosiban (106) a clinical candidate.(Borthwick, A. D.; Liddle, J.The design of orally bioavailable 2,5 diketopiperazine oxytocin antagonists: from concept to clinical candidate for premature labour Med. Res. Rev. 2011, 31, 576604)
As a backup to 106, an alternative replacement of the 7-aryl ring with a six-membered heterocycle was considered and in this report we describe how we investigated the modification of the 7-aryl ring to the 7(3′-pyridyl) ring and optimized substitution in this ring as well as modifying the isobutyl group to obtain good potency, lower intrinsic clearance in human microsomes, and good pharmacokinetics in animal species.

Scheme

Reagents and conditions: (a) triethylamine, MeOH; (b) H2, Pd/C, ethanol/acetic acid; (c) carbonyl diimidazole, CH2Cl2 3 h then acetone/2 N HCl; (d) benzotriazol-1-yloxytripyrrolidinophosphonium hexafluorophosphate, dichloromethane 1 h then morpholine.

GSK221149A and other tertiary amides were prepared in four steps via the Ugi reaction as outlined in Scheme . A 2:1 mixture of diastereoisomers 24 was formed with the desirable (R)-diastereoisomer being the minor product. Hydrogenation of crude 24 furnished the cyclised phenol 25, again enriched with the undesirable (S)-diastereoisomer.

Activation of the mixture 25 with carbonyl diimidazole followed by the addition of 2 N HCl promoted epimerisation at the exocyclic position and yielded the acids 26 with the required (R)-diastereoisomer as the major product.

Acid activation with benzotriazol-1-yloxytripyrrolidinophosphonium hexafluorophosphate followed by the addition of morpholine and subsequent column chromatography yielded homo-chiral GSK221149A.

The solution was then added to (D)- allo Isoleucine methyl ester hydrochloride (20g, .110mol) in a separate flask. The slurry was stirred until dissolution was observed. 2-methyl-4- formyloxazole (12.24g, 0.110mmol) was then added followed by 2- benzyloxyphenylisocynanide (23.04g, 0.110mmol). The dark brown reaction mixture was then stirred at 20-25°C for 24hrs. The solution was then concentrated to a volume of ca. 130mL by distillation at reduced pressure.

The solution was the diluted with dichloromethane (200mL) and washed with water (2 x 200mL). The organic phase was then diluted with N-methyl pyrrolidinone (460mL) was and the dichloromethane removed by stirring at 40°C under vacuum for 2hrs. Acetic acid 46mL) was then added followed by palladium on carbon catalyst (69. Og of 10% Pd wt, 57% water, Johnson Matthey type 87L) and the mixture hydrogenated under balloon pressure of hydrogen with rapid stirring for 2hrs. The reaction mixture was then filtered, washed through with ethyl acetate (960mL) and washed with 3%w/v aq sodium chloride solution (960mL). The biphasic mixture was filtered and the organic phase separated and washed with 3%w/v aq sodium chloride solution (2 x 960mL). The organic solution was then diluted with ethyl acetate (200mL) and concentrated by distillation at atmospheric pressure by distilling out 385mL of solvent. The concentrated solution at 20-25°C was treated with 1 ,1′-carbonyldiimidazoIe (21.46g, 0.132mol) and stirred at 20-25°C for 1 hr then treated with water (290mL) and stirred rapidly at 20-25°C for 24hr. The mixture was allowed to settle and the ethyl acetate layer separated and discarded. The aqueous phase was washed with ethyl acetate (290mL) and the mixture allowed to settle and the aqueous phase was separated and acidified to pH 1-2 by the addition of concentrated hydrochloric acid (18mL).

The aqueous phase was then extracted into ethyl acetate (290mL and then 145mL). The combined ethyl acetate solution was then concentrated by distillation at atmospheric pressure to a volume of ca. 93mL. This solution was then diluted with tetrahydrofuran (62mL) and treated with triethylamine (11.02g, 15.20mL, 0.109mol) and cooled to -78°C.

Abstract Image

A six-stage stereoselective synthesis of indanyl-7-(3′-pyridyl)-(3R,6R,7R)-2,5-diketopiperazines oxytocin antagonists from indene is described. SAR studies involving mono- and disubstitution in the 3′-pyridyl ring and variation of the 3-isobutyl group gave potent compounds (pKi > 9.0) with good aqueous solubility. Evaluation of the pharmacokinetic profile in the rat, dog, and cynomolgus monkey of those derivatives with low cynomolgus monkey and human intrinsic clearance gave 2′,6′-dimethyl-3′-pyridyl Rsec-butyl morpholine amide Epelsiban (69), a highly potent oxytocin antagonist (pKi = 9.9) with >31000-fold selectivity over all three human vasopressin receptors hV1aR, hV2R, and hV1bR, with no significant P450 inhibition. Epelsiban has low levels of intrinsic clearance against the microsomes of four species, good bioavailability (55%) and comparable potency to atosiban in the rat, but is 100-fold more potent than the latter in vitro and was negative in the genotoxicity screens with a satisfactory oral safety profile in female rats.

Company: GlaxoSmithKline
Meant to treat: tumors with loss-of-function in the tumor suppressor protein PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homolog)- 2nd most inactivated tumor suppressor after p53- cancers where this is often the case include prostate and endometrial
Mode of action: inhibitor of phosphoinositide 3-kinase-beta (PI3K-beta). Several lines of evidence suggest that proliferation in certain PTEN-deficient tumor cell lines is driven primarily by PI3K-beta.
Medicinal chemistry tidbits: The GSK team seemed boxed in because in 3 out of 4 animals used in preclinical testing, promising drug candidates had high clearance. It turned out that a carbonyl group that they thought was critical for interacting with the back pocket of the PI3K-beta enzyme wasn’t so critical after all. When they realized they could replace the carbonyl with a variety of functional groups, GSK2636771 eventually emerged. GSK2636771B (shown) is the tris salt of GSK2636771.

INTERVIEW

Continuing with the tradition from last two years, I will occasionally post interviews with some of the participants of the ScienceOnline2010 conference that was held in the Research Triangle Park, NC back in January. See all the interviews in this series here. You can check out previous years’ interviews as well: 2008 and 2009.

Today, I asked Carmen Drahl, Associate Editor for Science/Technology/Education at Chemical & Engineering News (find her as @carmendrahl on Twitter) to answer a few questions.

Welcome to A Blog Around The Clock. Would you, please, tell my readers a little bit more about yourself? Where are you coming from (both geographically and philosophically)? What is your (scientific) background?

i-b183f89fe33d3d9f0b308a6cb30d9b5b-Carmen Drahl pic1.JPGIt’s a pleasure and a privilege to be interviewed, Bora.

Good conversations make me happy. School was fun for me (well, maybe not grad school) and that’s evolved into a desire to always be learning something new. I enjoy doing nothing as much as I enjoy doing things. On Mondays, if I’m not too busy, I take hip-hop dance classes.

My hometown is Hackettstown, New Jersey. M&M’s are made there. I got a bachelor’s in chemistry from Drew University and a Ph.D. in chemistry at Princeton. Scientifically my expertise hovers somewhere around the interface between organic chemistry and biochemistry. A short while after defending my dissertation, I moved to Washington DC to write for Chemical & Engineering News, and that’s where I’ve been for almost three years now.

When and how did you first discover science blogs?

Scandal led me to science blogs. Seriously. In March 2006 I was still an organic chemistry grad student. Everyone in my lab was buzzing about a set of retractions in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (disclosure: today I work for the American Chemical Society, which publishes JACS). A rising young organic chemistry star retracted the papers because work by one of his graduate students couldn’t be reproduced. It was a big deal and became an even bigger deal as the inevitable rumors (salacious and otherwise) surfaced. The blogosphere had the details first. So that’s where Google pointed me and the other members of my lab when we searched for more information. I learned about the awesome (but sadly now defunct) blogs Tenderbutton and The Endless Frontier, by Dylan Stiles and Paul Bracher, both chemistry grad students like me. I also discovered the solid mix of chemistry and pharma at Derek Lowe’s In the Pipeline, which is still the first blog I visit every day.

Tell us a little more about your career trajectory so far: interesting projects past and present?

i-b7bd4d4568d9689c2daf400303c886c3-Carmen Drahl pic2.JPGBy the time I discovered science blogs I knew my career goals were changing. I’d already been lucky enough to audit a science writing course at Princeton taught by Mike Lemonick from TIME, and thought that maybe science writing was a good choice for me. After reading chemistry blogs for a while I realized “Hey, I can do this!” and started my own blog, She Blinded Me with Science, in July 2006. It was the typical grad student blog, a mix of posts about papers I liked and life in the lab.

At C&E News I’ve contributed to its C&ENtral Science blog, which premiered in spring 2008. I’ve experimented with a few different kinds of posts- observations and on-the-street interviews when I run into something chemistry-related in DC, in-depth posts from meetings, and video demos of iPod apps. One of my favorite things to do is toy with new audio/video/etc technology for the blog.

What is taking up the most of your time and passion these days? What are your goals?

In March I just started a new era in my web existence- I’m becoming a pharma blogger. I’m the science voice at The Haystack, C&E News’s new pharma blog and one of seven new blogs the magazine launched last month. My co-blogger is the talented Lisa Jarvis, who’s written about the business side of pharma for ten years and who brings a solid science background to the table as well. I kicked us off by liveblogging/livetweeting a popular session at the American Chemical Society’s meeting in San Francisco where drug companies reveal for the first time the chemical structures of potential new drugs being tested in clinical trials. The whole thing synced to FriendFeed as well. Folks followed the talks from all three venues, which was great. I hope I can continue doing that sort of thing in the future.

For this August, I’m co-organizing a mini-symposium at the American Chemical Society meeting in Boston about the chem/pharma blogosphere and its impact on research and communication. I’m in the process of inviting speakers right now. It’s my first time doing anything like this and part of me is petrified that no one will show up. Tips on organizing a conference session and how not to stress when doing so are welcome!

More broadly, I’d love to get more chemistry bloggers to connect with the community that attends ScienceOnline. I don’t ever want to become that old (or not-so-old) person who is clueless about them-thar newfangled whosiwhatsits that the kids are using nowadays.

What aspect of science communication and/or particular use of the Web in science interests you the most?

A few things come to mind, actually. I’d like to think that the web has made grad school a helluva lot less isolating for science grad students. You have the virtual journal clubs like Totally Synthetic, posts like SciCurious’s letter to a grad student, etc.

As a journalist the web’s capacity to equalize fascinates me. I’m extremely lucky to have a staff gig as a science writer without having gone to journalism school or landed a media fellowhip and it’s weird to think that my old blog might’ve helped my visibility. I didn’t know Ed Yong’s story until Scio10 but I think he’s a highly talented example of how the web can open doors.

The web’s equalizing power goes to readers of science content as well as writers, of course. In the ideal situation a reader can give a writer instant feedback and you can get a real conversation going, something that was much harder with the snail-paced system of letters to the editor and reader surveys. Not that the conversation is always civil. Most of C&EN’s readers have a decent amount of scientific training, but the debate that rages whenever we run an editorial about climate change is as intense as any I’ve seen.

In cases like that I don’t know that the web gives people a good representation of what the consensus is. For folks who don’t have scientific training, how do you ensure that people don’t just go to the content that already confirms their pre-existing beliefs about autism or global warming? John Timmer touched on this more eloquently in his interview with you, and I agree with him that I don’t think we have an answer yet. Though on a slightly different note, I will mention that I’ve been enjoying the New York Times’s recent attempts to recapture the spontaneity of flipping through the newspaper in online browsing, like the Times Skimmer for Google Chrome.

What are some of your favourite science blogs? Have you discovered any cool science blogs by the participants at the Conference?

In addition to the blogs I’ve already mentioned I enjoy Carbon-Based Curiosities, Wired Science, Chemistry Blog, and Terra Sigillata, to name a few of the 50 or so blogs on my feed reader.

I discovered scads of new blogs at Scio10 but I’ll focus on the one that’s become required reading for me these days: Obesity Panacea. I’d covered obesity drug development for C&EN but I’d never met Travis Saunders and Peter Janiszewski or heard of their blog until the conference.

What was the best aspect of ScienceOnline2010 for you? Is there anything that happened at this Conference – a session, something someone said or did or wrote – that will change the way you think about science communication, or something that you will take with you to your job, blog-reading and blog-writing?

Dave Mungeris my hero – his blogging 102 session was packed with practical tips that I brought back to C&EN for incorporating into our blogs, such as the use of the Disqus plugin for catching conversations on social networks, getting smart about using stats and surveys, etc. Some of that’s already happened, and some of the ideas are still in the works.

I came for the nuts-and-bolts blogging tips but I stayed for the conversations, especially the ones at the bar after the official program was done for the night. And the icing on the cake was seeing folks I’d worked with but never met, like Cameron Neylon and you, Bora, and catching up with people I hadn’t seen in months, like Jean-Claude Bradley, Aaron Rowe, Jennifer Ouellette and Nancy Shute.

It was so nice to meet you in person and thank you for the interview. I hope to see you again next January.

Omipalisib (GSK2126458): Omipalisib, also known as GSK2126458, is a small-molecule pyridylsulfonamide inhibitor of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) with potential antineoplastic activity. PI3K inhibitor GSK2126458 binds to and inhibits PI3K in the PI3K/mTOR signaling pathway, which may trigger the translocation of cytosolic Bax to the mitochondrial outer membrane, increasing mitochondrial membrane permeability and inducing apoptotic cell death. Bax is a member of the proapoptotic Bcl2 family of proteins. PI3K, often overexpressed in cancer cells, plays a crucial role in tumor cell regulation and survival.

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is developing omipalisib (GSK-2126458), a phosphoinositide 3-kinase/mammalian target of rapamycin (PI3K/mTOR) inhibitor as well as mTOR complex 1 and 2 inhibitor, for the potential oral treatment of cancer and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

GSK2126458 is a highly potent PI3K and mTOR inhibitor. In vivo, GSK2126458 showed anti-tumor activity in both pharmacodynamic and tumor growth efficacy models. GSK2126458 reduced the phosphorylated AKT, p70S6K contents in a dose and time dependent way. The IC50 of GSK2126458 is 2 nM for pAKT in the HCC1954 breast carcinoma cell line. In various human tumor cells, GSK2126458 had a width of inhibitory activity for potent cell growth and induced cell death. Notably, GSK2126458 acted mainly by not induction of apoptosis but cell cycle arrest, particularly in G1-phase

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is developing omipalisib (GSK-2126458), a phosphoinositide 3-kinase/mammalian target of rapamycin (PI3K/mTOR) inhibitor as well as mTOR complex 1 and 2 inhibitor, for the potential oral treatment of cancer and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

GSK-2126458 is a phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase (PI3K) inhibitor in early clinical development for the oral treatment of solid tumors and for the oral treatment of lymphoma. Early clinical studies are ongoing for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The compound is being developed b GlaxoSmithKline.

In August 2009, a phase I trial began for solid tumors and lymphoma . In April 2012, phase Ib co-clinical trials in advanced prostate cancer (PC) were underway . In March 2013, a phase I trial was initiated in the UK in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

In April 2014, a phase I, open-label, multicenter, dose-escalation study (study number P3K113794) and safety data were presented at the 105th AACR meeting in San Diego, CA. Advanced solid tumor patients (n = 69) received oral continuous GSK-2126458 or intermittent GSK-2126458 bid  + trametinib. For GSK-2126458 and trametinib, the MTD in QD cohort was 2 and 1 mg, respectively, and also 1 and 1.5 mg, respectively

Discovery of GSK2126458, a highly potent inhibitor of PI3K and the mammalian target of rampamycin

Abstract Image

Phosphoinositide 3-kinase α (PI3Kα) is a critical regulator of cell growth and transformation, and its signaling pathway is the most commonly mutated pathway in human cancers. The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a class IV PI3K protein kinase, is also a central regulator of cell growth, and mTOR inhibitors are believed to augment the antiproliferative efficacy of PI3K/AKT pathway inhibition. 2,4-Difluoro-N-{2-(methyloxy)-5-[4-(4-pyridazinyl)-6-quinolinyl]-3-pyridinyl}benzenesulfonamide (GSK2126458, 1) has been identified as a highly potent, orally bioavailable inhibitor of PI3Kα and mTOR with in vivo activity in both pharmacodynamic and tumor growth efficacy models. Compound 1 is currently being evaluated in human clinical trials for the treatment of cancer.

The solids were filtered, washed with water (3 x 100 mL) and dried in a vac oven (40 °C) to give 5-bromo-2-(methyloxy)-3-nitropyridine (36 g, 154 mmol, 73.4 % yield) as a pale yellow powder. The original filtrate was concentrated in vacuo and diluted with water (150 mL). Saturated ammonium chloride (25 mL) was added and the mixture stirred for 1 h. The solids were filtered, washed with water, and dried in a vac oven (40 °C) to give a second crop of 5-bromo-2-(methyloxy)-3- nitropyridine (9 g, 38.6 mmol, 18.34 % yield). Total yield = 90%. MS(ES)+ m/e 232.8, 234.7 [M+H]+.

b) 5-bromo-2-(methyloxy)-3-pyridinamine

To a solution of 5-bromo-2-(methyloxy)-3-nitropyridine (45 g, 193 mmol) in ethyl acetate (1 L) was added tin(II) chloride dihydrate (174 g, 772 mmol). The reaction mixture was heated at reflux for 4 h. LC/MS indicated some starting material remained, so added 20 mol% tin (II) chloride dihydrate and continued to heat at reflux. After 2 h, the reaction was allowed to cool to ambient temperature and concentrated in vacuo. The residue was treated with 2 N sodium hydroxide and the mixture stirred for 1 h. The mixture was then with methylene chloride (1 L), filtered through Celite, and washed with methylene chloride (500 mL). The layers were separated and the organics dried over magnesium sulfate and concentrated to give 5-bromo-2-(methyloxy)-3-pyridinamine (23 g, 113 mmol, 58.7 % yield). The product was used crude in subsequent reactions. MS(ES)+ m/e 201.9, 203.9 [M+H]+.

c) N-[5-bromo-2-(methyloxy)-3-pyridinyl]-2,4-difluorobenzenesulfonamide

Figure imgf000151_0002

To a cooled (0 °C) solution of 5-bromo-2-(methyloxy)-3-pyridinamine (20.3 g, 100 mmol) in pyridine (200 mL) was added slowly 2,4-difluorobenzenesulfonyl chloride (21.3 g, 100 mmol) over 15 min (reaction became heterogeneous). The ice bath was removed and the reaction was stirred at ambient temperature for 16 h, at which time the reaction was diluted with water (500 mL) and the solids filtered off and washed with copious amounts of water. The precipitate was dried in a vacuum oven at 50 °C to give N-[5-bromo-2-(methyloxy)-3-pyridinyl]-2,4- difluorobenzenesulfonamide (12 g, 31.6 mmol, 31.7 % yield) MS(ES)+ m/e 379.0, 380.9 [M+H]+.

Sun Pharma to acquire GSK’s Australian opiates business

India-based Sun Pharmaceutical Industries has agreed to acquire GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) opiates business in Australia.

The agreement has been signed by wholly-owned subsidiaries of both firms, with the financial terms not disclosed.

Sun Pharma API business executive vice-president Iftach Seri said: “The global opiates market holds good potential and the addition of GSK’s Opiates business will strengthen our positioning further.”

Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd(SUN.NS), India’s largest drugmaker by sales, said on Tuesday it has agreed to buy GlaxoSmithKline’s(GSK.L) opiates business in Australia to strengthen its pain management portfolio.

The business consists of analgesics made from raw materials found in opium poppy plants, and includes two manufacturing sites in the states of Tasmania and Victoria.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. A Sun Pharma spokesman declined to comment. Glaxo did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment.

Glaxo supplies a quarter of the world’s medicinal opiate needs from poppies grown by farmers in Tasmania, according to the company website. The company’s Australian opiates business brought in revenue of A$89 million ($69.63 million) in 2013.

Australia’s poppy industry is the world’s largest legal supplier of pharmaceutical grade opiates for painkillers, and Glaxo is one of three firms that control the crop and production in Tasmania.

The other two are Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ.N) unit Tasmanian Alkaloids, and privately-held TPI Enterprises.

Glaxo’s decision to part with the opiates business comes as Tasmania’s poppy industry is facing a tough crop and the United Nations is expected to cut the state’s poppy crop area this week.

Glaxo said the deal would allow it to “focus on delivering its innovative product portfolio” in Australia.

“The opiates business has been an important part of our Australian business for many years, but as our portfolio transitions, we believe now is the right time to hand this business over to someone else,” Steve Morris, general manager of GSK Opiates, said in a statement.

The business employs 185 staff, including 155 in Victoria state and 30 in Tasmania state. Sun Pharma said it would hire all employees from both sites.

“The acquisition is a part of our strategy towards building our portfolio of opiates and accessing strong capabilities in this segment,” said Iftach Seri, executive vice president of the active pharmaceuticals ingredients business at Sun Pharma.

Both companies said they expect to close the deal by August.

Sun Pharma shares closed 1.93 percent higher on Tuesday, while the broader Nifty rose 0.44 percent.

($1 = 1.2781 Australian dollars)
