The present invention relates to a method for producing an intermediate useful for the synthesis of a diphenylmethane derivative that can be used as a SGLT inhibitor. A method for synthesizing a compound of formula 7 according to the present invention has solved the problem of an existing synthesis process which requires an additional process due to the synthesis of Grignard reagent and the management of a related substance. In addition, the process can be simplified by minimizing the formation of the related substance and eliminating the need for reprocessing of reaction products, thereby becoming capable of maximizing a yield of a diphenylmethane derivative.

Process for preparing intermediates of SGLT inhibitor and their use for the synthesis of diphenyl-methane derivative, which can be used as SGLT inhibitors.

Sodium-dependent glucose cotransporters (SGLT) allow the transport of Na + along the concentration gradient simultaneously with the transport of glucose across the concentration gradient. Currently two important SGLT isoforms have been cloned, known as SGLT1 and SGLT2. SGLT1 is located in the intestine, kidney and heart and regulates cardiac glucose transport. SGLT1 is a high affinity low dose transporter and therefore only accounts for a portion of renal glucose reuptake. In contrast, SGLT2 is a low affinity, high dose transporter located primarily in the apica domain of epithelial cells in the early proximal manure tubules. In healthy individuals, over 99% of the plasma glucose filtered out of the renal glomeruli is reabsorbed and less than 1% of the total filtered glucose is excreted in the urine. It is estimated that 90% of renal glucose reuptake is promoted by SGLT2 and the remaining 10% is mediated by SGLT1 in the late proximal canal. Genetic mutations in SGLT2 do not have a particular adverse effect on carbohydrate metabolism but cause increased kidney glucose secretion of about 140 g / day following mutation. Human mutation studies have been the subject of therapeutic studies because SGLT2 is believed to be responsible for most renal glucose resorption.

Korean Unexamined Patent Publication No. 2017-0142904 discloses a method for producing a diphenylmethane derivative having inhibitory activity against SGLT2. Since the above document prepares diphenylmethane derivatives by a convergent synthesis method in which each group is individually synthesized and then coupled, the synthesis route is more concise and yield is higher than the linear synthesis method disclosed in the prior art. It is disclosed that it can increase and reduce the risks inherent in sequential synthesis pathways.

However, the preparation method of the diphenylmethane derivative according to Korean Patent Publication No. 2017-0142904 uses a heavy metal such as pyridinium chlorochromate (PCC) to burden safety management, and the Grignard reagent. In addition to the need for a separate manufacturing process, the cost of the additional process is not only incurred, but also the management of the flexible material is necessary because the flexible material from the Grignard reagent manufacturing process is included in the final product. In addition, since the product generated after the reaction between the intermediate and the Grignard reagent includes additional flexible materials, there is a problem that a reprocessing process of such flexible materials is required.

Polmacoxib (Acelex) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat osteoarthritis. It was developed as CG100649 and approved for use in South Korea in February 2015.[1] It inhibits the enzymes carbonic anhydrase and COX-2. A study in healthy volunteers showed drug effects on urinary prostaglandin metabolites for both CG100649 and celecoxib that suggest a similar cardiovascular risk profile.[2] Further work by this group developed dose-exposure relationsships of CG100649 to guide clinical development strategies.

CrystalGenomics, announced today that it has received approval for Acelex® (polmacoxib) from the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) for the treatment of osteoarthritis.

The company said that “Pre-commercialization will commence immediately and a commercial launch partner for the Korean market will be announced very shortly.”

Acelex® (polmacoxib) is the first, tissue-specific once-a-day osteoarthritis drug with a novel mode of action that specifically targets affected joints to relieve pain and restore mobility, while simultaneously preserving the integrity and safety of the gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems. The results from the Phase 3 study suggest that Acelex 2mg once-a-day provides more rapid onset of relief from the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis in comparison to celecoxib 200mg once-a-day, without added safety risk.

Polmacoxib is a first-in-class NSAID drug candidate that is a dual inhibitor of COX-2 and carbonic anhydrase (CA). Polmacoxib’s interaction with CA in red blood cells provides it with a novel ’tissue-specific’ transport mechanism that is designed to deliver sustained levels of drug to inflamed tissues, while maintaining low systemic exposure. Its unique dual COX-2 and CA binding properties are designed to provide potentially superior safety to cardiovascular, renal, and gastrointestinal tissues compared to traditional NSAIDs or COX-2 inhibitor drugs.

Acelex® is expected to rapidly capture at least 10% of the arthritis market in Korea that is estimated to be worth more than KRW 500 billion per year as of 2013. Osteoarthritis is quite common in Korea, as it affects about 50% of the population aged 65 years or older. Moreover, the overall number of patients is growing rapidly due to an aging population coupled with an increasing prevalence of obesity.

Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been widely used over 100 years to alleviate symptoms of arthritis, arthritis-associated disorders, fever, post-operative pain, migraine, and so on. Despite their widespread use and desirable therapeutic efficacy for the treatment of inflammation and inflammation-associated disorders, NSAIDs are generally regarded to have life-threatening toxicity in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Severity of the GI toxicity is well illustrated by a report that 16 500 patients on NSAIDs therapy died due to the GI toxicity in the year of 1994 alone in the US. Frequently, the gastric toxicity of perforation, ulceration, and bleeding (PUB) is not noticed by patients before hospitalization, leading to such a high mortality rate upon chronic use of NSAIDs.
Despite the huge amount of efforts directed to reduce the GI toxicity of NSAIDs, it was only about a decade ago that the origin of the GI toxicity began to be understood through the discovery of an inducible isoform of cyclooxygenases. There are at least two kinds of cyclooxygenases, cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2). COX-1 is constitutively expressed in various tissues including the GI tract, the kidneys, and the platelets. COX-1 is known to be responsible for bodily homeostasis such as the gastrointestinal integrity, vascular dilatation, renal functions, and so on. Overt inhibition of COX-1 can, therefore, elicit undesirable side effects such as gastric PUB and blood thinning. In the meantime, COX-2 is induced upon inflammatory stimuli and is known to be responsible for progression of inflammation. Traditional NSAIDs, such as aspirin, naproxen, piroxicam, ibuprofen, diclofenac, etc., inhibit both COX-1 and COX-2, which accounts for NSAIDs’ antiinflammatory effects as well as their notorious side effects of GI toxicity and blood thinning. Thus, selective inhibition of COX-2 over COX-1 should be useful for treatment of inflammation without incurring the side effects associated with inhibition of COX-1.
A study with COX-2 knockout mice suggests that complete inhibition of COX-2 could lead to peritonitis secondary to intestinal toxicity. Animal safety data for COX-2 inhibitors indicated that the intestinal toxicity was the dose-limiting toxicity in the dog and the rat. However, primates seem to possess robust intestinal tolerance to selective inhibition of COX-2. Indeed, COX-2 inhibitors are regarded to have better gastrointestinal safety profiles than traditional NSAIDs.
Long term use of traditional NSAIDs has been known to elicit cardiorenal toxicity such as edema and worsening blood pressure. There have been some attempts to assess cardiorenal safety of COX-2 inhibitors; however, more clinical data are needed to estimate the cardiorenal safety of COX-2 inhibitors. Considering that COX-2 inhibitors are supposed to be chronically taken mostlyby elderly arthritis patients, the importance of the long-term cardiorenal safety can never be overemphasized. COX-2 is constitutively expressed in the glomerular region and the small blood vessels of the kidneys in primates including the human, suggesting that the smaller inhibition of renal COX-2 could lead to smaller renal and consequently cardiovascular adverse effects. Given that only protein-unbound drug molecules are subject to glomerular filtration, a drug with higher plasma protein binding is expected to exert a smaller renal effect for a given lipophilicity or hydrophilicity of drug.
There are already several COX-2 inhibitors being prescribed for chronic indications, and they mostly maintain a tricyclic structure as in rofecoxib, celecoxib, valdecoxib, and etoricoxib.

Prostaglandins are known to play an important role in the inflammation.

Since prostaglandins are produced from arachidonic acid by cyclooxygenases, inhibition of prostagalndin synthesis by cyclooxygenases, especially synthesis of PGE2, PGG2, and PGH2, leads to the treatment of inflammation.

There are at least two kinds of cyclooxygenases, cyclooxygenase-1

(abbreviated as COX-1) and cyclooxygenase-2 (abbreviated as COX-2). COX-1 is constitutively present in the gastrointestinal tract and the kidney, and is implicated to be responsible for the maintenance of the physiological homeostasis, such as gastrointestinal integrity and renal function. Interruption of COX-1 activity can lead to life-threatening toxicities to the gastrointestinal tract, such as ulceration and bleeding. In the meantime, COX-2 is induced upon inflammatory stimuli and known to be responsible for progression of inflammation. Thus, selective inhibition of COX-2 over COX-1 is useful for the treatment of inflammation and inflammation-associated disorders without incurring gastrointestinal toxicities.

Conventional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as indomethacin, naproxen, ketoprofen, ibuprofen, piroxicam, diclofenac etc, inhibit both COX-1 and COX-2, which would demonstrate their gastrointestinal toxicities as well as anti-inflammatory potency. However, they possess serious life-threatening gastrointestinal toxicities of bleeding and ulceration arising from their inhibition of COX-1, which limit their clinical use. Thus, a selective inhibitor of COX-2 can be useful as an anti-inflammatory therapeutic agent without the gastrointestinal toxicities, frequently occurring upon chronic use of conventional NSAIDs.

COX-2 inhibitors are implicated to possess a broad therapeutic spectrum besides anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic activity. For example inhibition of COX-2 can prevent growth of certain types of cancer, especially colon cancer [J. Clin. Invest. 100. 1 (1997)]. Another application of a COX-2 inhibitor can be found in the treatment of degenerative chronic neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease [Neurology 4£, 626 (1997)]. COX-2 inhibition would be useful in reducing the infarct volume accompanying the stroke [J. Neuroscience 17, 2746 (1997)].

Recently two of COX-2 selective antiinflammatory drugs, celecoxib and rofecoxib, were introduced into the clinic for arthritic indications. Celecoxib and rofecoxib show anti-inflammatory potency comparable to conventional NSAIDs without COX-2 selectivity. In the meantime, these drugs show appreciably lower gastrointestinal toxicities than conventional NSAIDs without COX-2 selectivity over COX-1. Thus, COX-2 selective inhibition itself can be enough for anti-arthritic potency and the inhibition of COX-1 is largely responsible for the gastro-intestinal toxicities associated with conventional NSAIDs without COX-2 selectivity.

.s-l,2-Diaryl-alkenes or its structural-equivalents are known to be a pharmacophore for achieving selective COX-2 inhibition over COX-1 [Ann. Rep. Med. Chem. 22, 211 (1997)]. In case of celecoxib and rofecoxib, pyrazole and 2(JH)-furanone correspond to the scaffold, respectively.

Celecoxib Rofecoxib By adopting an appropriate scaffold for the c/s-alkene pharmacophore, it would be possible to modulate both in vitro and in vivo characteristics of such inhibitors, such as dosing regimen, daily dose, clinical indications arising from tissue distribution characteristics, safety profile, and so on.

In this invention, 3(2H)-furanone is adopted as a scaffold for COX-2 inhibitors.

3(2H)-furanone derivatives were prepared for use in the treatment of glaucoma [EP 0

737 476 A2]. However, there is no precedent case that 3(2H)-furanone derivatives have been ever used as COX-2 inhibitors. There is no reported case of 4,5-diaryl-3(2H)-furanone derivatives, either.

The 4,5-diaryl-3(2H)-furanone derivatives disclosed herein selectively inhibit COX-2 over COX-1 and relieve the effects of inflammation. 4,5-Diaryl-3(2H)-furanone derivatives of this invention do not show substantial inhibition of COX-1 and consequently show reduced gastrointestinal side effects. Thus, 4,5-diaryl-3(2H)-furanone derivatives of this invention are found useful as anti -inflammatory agents with significantly reduced gastrointestinal side effects, when compared with conventional NSAIDs.

Abstract Image

5-Aryl-2,2-dialkyl-4-phenyl-3(2H)furanone derivatives were studied as a novel class of selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors with regard to synthesis, in vitro SAR, antiinflammatory activities, pharmacokinetic considerations, and gastric safety. 1f, a representative compound for methyl sulfone derivatives, showed a COX-2 IC50 comparable to that of rofecoxib. In case of 20b, a representative compound for sulfonamide derivatives, a potent antiinflammatory ED50 of 0.1 mg kg-1 day-1 was observed against adjuvant-induced arthritis by a preventive model, positioning20b as one of the most potent COX-2 inhibitors ever reported. Furthermore, 20b showed strong analgesic activity as indicated by its ED50 of 0.25 mg/kg against carrageenan-induced thermal hyperalgesia in the Sprague−Dawley rat. 3(2H)Furanone derivatives showed due gastric safety profiles as selective COX-2 inhibitors upon 7-day repeat dosing. A highly potent COX-2 inhibitor of the 3(2H)furanone scaffold could be considered suitable for a future generation COX-2 selective arthritis medication with improved safety profiles.

Eurofarma will be responsible for Evogliptin’s product development and sales in the 17 Latin American countries, Dong-A ST said. Dong-A ST will receive royalties from Eurofarma, and export the raw material of the medicine.

Dong-A ST has been developing Evogliptin with the support of the Ministry of Health & Welfare of South Korea as an innovative new medicine research project since May 2008. Evogliptin is a DPP-4 remedy based on the inhibition mechanism which is “excellent” at reducing blood sugar, whilst “less likely” to cause weight increases and hypoglycemia, the company said.

Park Chan-il, president of Dong-A ST, said that Dong-A ST will pursue further out-licensing “over the globe,” through continuous investment in research and development.

Maurizio Billi, Eurofarma’s president, wished to expand both companies’ partnership in the innovative new remedy development sector, according to Dong-A ST.

Last July, Dong-A ST and Eurofarma concluded a contract out-licensing Evogliptin to Brazil itself, the company said.
