Introduction

GDC 3280 (also known as RG 6069), an orally administered drug, is being developed by Genentech, for the treatment of interstitial lung diseases. Early stage clinical development is underway in the UK.

Company Agreements

In September 2018, Genentech licensed exclusive worldwide development and commercialisation rights of GDC 3280 to Ark Biosciences, for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Key Development Milestones

As at September 2018, GDC 3280 is still in phase I development for interstitial lung disease (Genentech pipeline, September 2018).

In December 2015, Genentech completed a phase I trial that evaluated the safety, pharmacokinetics and tolerability of GDC 3280 in healthy volunteers, compared with placebo (GB29751; EudraCT2015-000560-33; NCT02471859). The randomised, double-blind, single and multiple oral dose trial was initiated in June 2015 and enrolled eight volunteers in the UK .

Novel crystalline salt forms of 1-methyl-7-(1-methyl-lH-pyrazol-4-yl)-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-1,5-dihydro-4H-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one (compound I; presumed to be AK-3280 ), processes for their preparation and compositions comprising them are claimed.

Compound I is an orally available small molecule having the structure:

[0004] Compound I has therapeutic value in several different indications that display fibrotic pathophysiology, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

[0005] Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a disease of unknown etiology that occurs mainly in middle-aged and elderly patients, which is characterized by progressive fibrosis of the lung, leading to pulmonary insufficiency and death. Because fibrosis has long been considered to be a clinically irreversible process, treatments have traditionally been focused on managing the symptoms and complications, with little hope of significantly slowing progression of the condition. For many years, mainstay treatments have been typically anti inflammatory, immunosuppressive, and anti-oxidant agents. The effectiveness of these therapies in the treatment of IPF and other fibrotic conditions appears to be minimal and variable, and their side effects are often poorly tolerated by patients.

[0006] New treatment options have only recently become available. Both pirfenidone and nintedanib have been approved for use in the treatment of IPF. Current research efforts to develop new anti-fibrotic agents are targeting multiple mechanisms proposed to be linked to the underlying molecular pathogenic processes. This changing landscape has raised hopes and expectations for what might be achievable with new single agents or combination therapies targeting additional pathways.

Preparation of Compound I and its salts

[0045] A synthesis of Compound I and its tosylate salt is shown in the scheme below:

[0046] l-methyl-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-l,5-dihydro-4H-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one (5) was synthesized in 4 steps, including a copper-catalyzed coupling reaction e.g., a Goldberg-Ullmann coupling reaction. In another aspect of the invention, intermediate (5) is synthesized using any transition metal-catalyzed coupling reaction. The skilled chemist would know that intermediate (5) could be synthesized from intermediate (4) and compounds

LG

of the general formula: OCF3 , wherein the leaving group“LG” includes but is not limited to halogen, tosylate, mesylate, triflate, etc.

[0047] Compound I was synthesized in 6 steps, using a transition metal cross-coupling reaction, e.g., a Suzuki reaction. In another aspect of the invention, Compound I is synthesized using any cross -coupling reaction. Compound I is synthesized from intermediate 6 containing any leaving group. For example, the skilled chemist would use compounds of

the general formula: 
, wherein the leaving group“LG” includes but is not limited to halogen, tosylate, mesylate, triflate, etc.

An alternative synthesis of Compound I and its salts is shown in the scheme below:

Example 13 – Synthesis of Compound I Tosylate Salt

[00183] A process for the formation of mono- and di-tosylate salts of Compound I was developed and a batch was performed to successfully produce the mono-tosylate salt.

Step 1 : Synthesis of2-chloro-N-methyl-3-nitropyridin-4-amine

[00184] A reactor was charged with 2,4-dichloro-3-nitropyridine and 3.0 volumes of DMF. The solution was stirred at 20-25 °C until a clear solution was obtained. The solution was then cooled to 0-5 °C, and 2.1 equivalents of 40% methylamine in water were slowly added over at least 2 hours at 0-5 °C. The reaction mixture was stirred for at least 2 hours at 0-5 °C until conversion to the product was 95% (as measured by HPLC). The reaction mixture was diluted by slowly adding 10 volumes of water over at least 30 minutes at 0-5 °C. The obtained suspension was stirred for at least 60 minutes at 0-5 °C. The precipitate was collected by filtration, and the filter cake was rinsed via the reactor with 10 volumes of water at 0-5 °C. The damp filter cake was then dried in a flow of dry nitrogen to yield 2-chloro-A-methyl-3-nitropyridin-4-amine in 78% yield.

Step 2: Synthesis of 2-chloro-N4 -methylpyridine-3, 4-diamine

[00185] A reactor was charged with catalyst [2% Pt on charcoal, 59 %wt. water] (0.0004 equivalents Pt), damp 2-chloro-/V-methyl-3-nitropyridin-4-amine from step 1 and 9.4 volumes of THF. The solution was stirred, and then the suspension was transferred from the glass-reactor to an autoclave. The line was rinsed with 1.2 volumes of THF into the autoclave, and the autoclave was purged with nitrogen for 15 minutes at 50 rpm, followed by hydrogen for 15 minutes at 150 rpm. The autoclave was closed, and the hydrogen pressure was adjusted to 2 bar at 20-30 °C. The reaction mixture was stirred for 4-8 hours at 2 bar and 20-30 °C.

[00186] Next, the autoclave was released to atmospheric pressure and purged with nitrogen for at least 15 minutes. Conversion to the product was verified by HPLC, and then the catalyst was removed by filtration. The filtered catalyst was rinsed with 1.3 volumes of THF and the filtrates were combined. The combined filtrates were charged to a second reactor via a particle filter, and the line was rinsed with 0.5 volumes of THF. The solution was concentrated to a final volume of 2.5 volumes by distillation under reduced pressure at 40-45 °C.

[00187] The solution was then diluted with 10 volumes of THF in portions while concentrating the solution to a final volume of 2.5 volumes by distillation under reduced pressure at 45-50 °C. The reactor was purged with nitrogen to atmospheric pressure, and 5.0 volumes of heptane were added to the residue at 40-50 °C. The reaction mixture was cooled over 2 hours to 20-25 °C, and stirring was continued for 1 hour. The reaction mixture was then further cooled to 0-5 °C over 1 hour, and stirring was continued for 1 hour. The precipitated product was collected by filtration, rinsed via the reactor with 5.0 volumes of heptane, and the damp filter cake was dried in a vacuum drying oven at max. 40 °C until loss on drying was < 2 % weight, giving 2-chloro-/V4-methylpyridine-3, 4-diamine in 85% yield.

Step 3 : Synthesis of -inelhyl- 1 ,5-dihvdro-4H-iinidazoi4,5-c h yridin-4-one

[00188] A reactor was charged with 2-chloro-/V4-methylpyridine-3, 4-diamine and 4 volumes of formic acid. The reaction mixture was heated to smooth reflux within one hour, and reflux was maintained for 6 hours. The reaction mixture was then cooled to

approximately 60 °C, and conversion to the product was verified by HPLC.

[00189] The reaction mixture was then concentrated by distillation under reduced pressure at 60-80 °C to a final volume of 2 volumes. The temperature of the solution was adjusted to 60 °C, maintaining the temperature above 50 °C to avoid precipitation.

[00190] Next, a second reactor was charged with 10 volumes of acetone, and heated to gentle reflux. The product solution from the first reactor was slowly transferred to the acetone in the second reactor over 20 minutes, and the line was rinsed with approximately 0.05 volumes of formic acid. Reflux of the obtained suspension was maintained for 15 minutes. The slurry was cooled to 0 °C within 1 hour, and stirring was continued for 1 hour at that temperature. The precipitate was collected by filtration, and the filter cake was rinsed via the reactor with 3.7 volumes of cold acetone at 0-10 °C. The filter cake was dried in a flow of dry nitrogen or in a vacuum drying oven at 50 °C until loss on drying was < 2% of weight, giving 1 -methyl- 1 ,5-dihydiO-4/7-imidazo[4,5-c]pyndin-4-onc in 95% yield.

Step 4: Synthesis of l-methyl-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-J5-dihvdro-4H-imidaz.o[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one

[00191] A first reactor (Reactor A) was charged with 1 -methyl- 1 ,5-dihydro-4/7-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one (1.0 mol equivalent), Cu(0Ac)2 H20 (0.1 mol equivalents), and K2C03 (1.1 mol equivalents). The reactor was closed and the atmosphere replaced with nitrogen.

[00192] Next, l-bromo-4-(trifluoromethoxy)benzene (1.5 mol equivalents) and N-methylpyrrolidinone (5.4 volume equivalents) were added, whereupon a suspension was formed. The suspension was stirred until the temperature had fallen again to approximately 20-25 °C and gas evolution had slowed. The reaction mixture was heated to approximately 130-150 °C at which time a blue/green color was observed, changing to dark brown after some time. The reaction was stirred at 130-150 °C for at least 40 hours. Stirring times of 40 hours up to 72 hours were required to reach an acceptable level of conversion. In general, higher reaction temperatures supported faster conversion.

[00193] Next, the reaction mixture was cooled to approximately 20-30 °C, and 25% aqueous NH3 (0.7 volume equivalents) was added, followed by water (3.5 volume equivalents). The resulting suspension was transferred into a second reactor (Reactor B). Additional water was added (18.1 volume equivalents) to the reaction mixture via Reactor A, followed by n-heptane (3.2 volume equivalents). The resulting suspension was cooled to approximately 0-5 °C, and stirred for approximately 2 hours.

[00194] The suspension was filtered, and the filter cake was washed with water (9.7 volume equivalents). The filter cake was then dissolved in dichloromethane (14.1 volume equivalents) and transferred back into reactor B. To this solution was added water (5.7 volume equivalents) via the filter, followed by 25% aq. NH3(1.6 volume equivalents). The mixture was stirred for approximately 1 hour at approximately 15-25 °C.

[00195] Next, the layers were separated, and dichloromethane was added (3.6 volume equivalents) to the aqueous layer. The biphasic mixture was stirred at approximately 15-25 °C for approximately 20-30 minutes. The layers were separated over a period of at least 1 hour, and to the combined organic layers was added a solution of NH4Cl (2.5 mol equivalents) in water (7.0 volume equivalents). The biphasic mixture was stirred at approximately 15-25 °C for about 20-30 minutes, then the layers were separated over the course of 1 hour.

[00196] The lower organic layer was filtered through a particle filter and diluted with toluene (7.1 volume equivalents) via the filter. The organic layer was concentrated under ambient pressure at approximately 80 °C, until no further liquid was seen to evaporate and a precipitate began to form. Toluene was added (16.6 volume equivalents), then concentrated in vacuo, followed by addition of more toluene (7.1 volume equivalents) and again concentrated in vacuo. The suspension was cooled to approximately 0-5 °C, stirred for approximately 2 hours, and filtered. The filter cake was washed with toluene (2.9 volume equivalents), and dried in vacuo at approximately 50 °C until the loss on drying was 0.5% of the weight to give l-methyl-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-l,5-dihydro-47/-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one as a beige-colored solid in 83.1% yield.

Step 5 : Synthesis of 7-bromo- 1 -methyl-5-(4-( trifluoromethoxy Iphenyl )- l,5- 4H- 

imidaz.o[4,5-clpyridin-4-one

[00197] A first reactor (Reactor A) was charged with water (1.8 volume equivalents) and cooled to approximately 0-5 °C, to which was slowly added 96% sulfuric acid (14 mol. equivalents) at approximately 0-20 °C. The temperature of the solution was adjusted to approximately 0-5 °C, and l -mcthyl-5-(4-(tnfluoromcthoxy)phcnyl)-l ,5-dihydro-4/7-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one (1.0 mol equivalent) was added in 3-4 portions at approximately 0-5 °C. The temperature of the mixture was adjusted to approximately 0-5 °C, and N-bromosuccinimide (1.0 mol equivalents) was slowly added in 3-4 portions, while maintaining the temperature at approximately 0-5 °C.

[00198] The reaction mixture was stirred for about 1 hour at approximately 0-5 °C, and then for an additional 4-16 hours at approximately 0-22 °C. Conversion to the product was confirmed by HPLC, then the reaction mixture was cooled to approximately 0-5 °C.

[00199] A second reactor (Reactor B) was charged with water (42.7 volume equivalents) and cooled to approximately 0-5 °C. The reaction mixture from Reactor A was transferred into the pre-cooled water in Reactor B at a temperature below 30 °C over 2 hours. The reaction was rinsed with water (1.6 volume equivalents), and 50% aqueous sodium hydroxide (25 mol. equivalents) was carefully added at approximately 0-30 °C over about 2 hours until the pH reached 2-5.

[00200] Next, MTBE (6.5 volume equivalents) was added at approximately 0-20 °C, and the mixture was stirred for about 5 minutes. Additional 50% aqueous sodium hydroxide (2 mol. equivalents) was added at approximately 0-30 °C until the pH of the solution was in the range of 10-14. The reaction was stirred for at least 1.5 hours at approximately 15-25 °C, and then the layers were allowed to separate over a period of at least 1 hour. The suspension was filtered, taking care to capture the product, which accumulated at the interface of the aqueous and organic layers. The filter cake was washed with MTBE (1.7 volume equivalents), water (3.0 volume equivalents), and then MTBE again (3.0 volume equivalents). The product was dried in vacuo at below 50 °C until the loss on drying was < 1% of the weight, giving 7-bromo-l-methyl-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-l,5-dihydro-47/-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one as a pale beige-colored solid in 97.6% yield.

Step 6: Synthesis of 1 -methyl-7 -( 1 -methyl-lH-pyraz.ol-4-yl )-5-(4-( trifluoromethoxy )pheml )-J5-dihvdro-4H-imidaz.o[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one (Compound /)

[00201] A reactor was charged with 7-bromo-l-methyl-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-l,5-dihydro-4//-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one (1.0 mol equivalents), ( 1 -methyl- 1 //-pyrazol-4-yl)boronic acid pinacol ester (l-methyl-4-(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-l,3,2-dioxaborolan-2-yl)-l//-pyrazole, 1.6 mol equivalents), Pd[Ph3]4 (0.025 mol equivalents, and K2C03 (2.0 mol equivalents), to which were added acetonitrile (10.0 volume equivalents) and water (3.0 volume equivalents). The reaction mixture was stirred for approximately 10-20 minutes at about 20-25 °C to form a suspension.

[00202] The mixture was heated to slight reflux, whereupon a biphasic, yellow solution formed. The mixture was stirred at slight reflux for at least 10 hours. The reaction mixture was cooled to between 30-50 °C, then passed through a particle filter. The filter was washed with acetonitrile (2.6 volume equivalents), the filtrates were combined, and the solution was concentrated to a final volume of approximately 120 mL (4.8 volume equivalents) under reduced pressure at below 60 °C.

[00203] To the resulting suspension was added water (1.9 volume equivalents), methanol (26 mL, 1.0 volume equivalents), and dichloromethane (14.8 volume equivalents). The mixture was warmed to about 30-35 °C and stirred until two clear layers were observed. The layers were allowed to separate without stirring at about 30-35 °C, and additional dichloromethane (3.7 volume equivalents) was added to the aqueous layer. The mixture was warmed to approximately 30-35 °C and stirred for about 5 minutes, and then the layers were allowed to separate at approximately 30-35 °C.

[00204] To the combined organic layers was added water (1.9 volume equivalents), and the mixture was warmed to approximately 30-35 °C and stirred for about 5 minutes. The layers were separated at approximately 30-35 °C. Charcoal was added to the combined organic layers and stirred for 30-60 minutes at approximately 30-35 °C. The charcoal was removed by filtration, and the filter was washed with dichloromethane (39 mL, 1.6 volume equivalents).

[00205] The solution was concentrated to approximately 4.0 volume equivalents at ambient pressure and at below 50 °C, then diluted with methanol (5.0 volume equivalents). The solution was again concentrated to approximately 4.0 volume equivalents at ambient pressure and below 60 °C, diluted with methanol (5.0 volume equivalents), and concentrated to a final volume of approximately 3.0 volume equivalents under reduced pressure below 60 °C.

[00206] To the resulting suspension was added methanol (2.9 volume equivalents), and the suspension was warmed to approximately 45-55 °C and stirred for about 1 hour. The suspension was cooled to approximately 0-5 °C within approximately 1 hour, stirred for 1 hour at approximately 0-5 °C, and then filtered. The filter cake was washed with cold methanol (pre-cooled to approximately 0-10 °C, 2.9 volume equivalents), and the product was dried under a stream of nitrogen and in vacuo at below 60 °C until the loss on drying was < 1% by weight, giving Compound I (l-methyl-7-(l-methyl-l -pyrazol-4-yl)-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-l,5-dihydro-4//-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one) as a white solid in 88.5% yield.

Step 7: Recrystallization of 1 -methyl-7 -(1 -methyl- lH-pyraz.ol-4-yl)-5-( 4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-J5-dihvdro-4H-imidaz.o[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one (Compound /)

[00207] A reactor was charged with crude l-methyl-7-(l -methyl- l//-pyrazol-4-yl)-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-l,5-dihydro-47/-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one from step 6, and to this was added glacial acetic acid (1.5 volume equivalents). The suspension was warmed to approximately 50-60 °C and stirred until a clear solution was obtained, approximately 10-20 minutes. The warm solution was passed through a particle filter into a second reactor.

[00208] To this solution was added ethanol (10.0 volume equivalents) at approximately 45-55 °C over 2 hours. The suspension was stirred for approximately 30 minutes at approximately 45-55 °C, then cooled to approximately 0-5 °C over about 4 hours. The suspension was then stirred for approximately 4-16 hours at about 0-5 °C.

[00209] Next, the suspension was filtered and the filter cake was washed with cold isopropanol (4.2 volume equivalents) at approximately 0-20 °C. The product was dried under a nitrogen stream and in vacuo at below 60 °C until the loss on drying was < 1% by weight, giving Compound I ( 1 – mcthyl-7-( 1 -methyl- 1 /7-pyrazol-4-yl)-5-(4-(tnfluoromcthoxy)phcnyl)-l,5-dihydro-47/-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one) as a white solid in 93.0% yield.

Step 8 : Synthesis of 1 -methyl-7 -( 1 -methyl- 1 H-pyrazol-4-yl )-5-(4-( trifluoromethoxy )phenyl )- 1 ,5-dihvdro-4H-imidaz.oi 4,5-clpyridin-4-one, mono – mono -tosylate

salt)

[00210] A reactor was charged with Compound I ( 1 -mcthyl-7-( 1 -methyl- 1 /7-pyrazol-4-yl)-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-l,5-dihydro-4//-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one, 1.00 mol equivalent), para-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate (1.05 mol equivalents), acetone (6.75 volume equivalents), and water (0.75 volume equivalents). The mixture was stirred at 15-25 °C until a clear solution formed, and then this solution was filtered through a particle filter into a second reactor.

[00211] The filter was washed with acetone (2.5 volume equivalents), and to the combined filtrates was added MTBE (7.5 volume equivalents) at 15-25 °C and Compound I mono-tosylate seeding crystals (0.001 mol equivalents).

[00212] The resulting suspension was stirred at 15-25 °C for approximately 30-60 minutes, and MTBE was added (22.5 volume equivalents) at 15-25 °C during a period of

approximately 30 minutes. Stirring was continued at 15-25 °C for approximately 30-60 minutes, and then the suspension was filtered. The filter was washed with MTBE (2.5 volume equivalents), and the material was dried in vacuo at below 55 °C to give Compound I mono-tosylate salt (l-methyl-7-(l-methyl-l//-pyrazol-4-yl)-5-(4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl)-l,5-dihydro-47/-imidazo[4,5-c]pyridin-4-one, mono-tosylate salt) as a white, crystalline solid in 93% yield.

  • Eli Lilly is developing SY 008, a sodium glucose transporter 1 (SGLT1) inhibitor, for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. The approach of inhibiting SGLT1 could be promising because it acts independently of the beta cell and could be effective in both early and advanced stages of diabetes. Reducing both glucose and insulin may improve the metabolic state and potentially the health of beta cells, without causing weight gain or hypoglycaemia. Clinical development is underway in Singapore and China.

    As at August 2018, no recent reports of development had been identified for phase-I development in Diabetes-mellitus in Singapore (PO).

Suzhou Yabao , under license from  Eli Lilly , is developing SY-008 , an SGLT1 inhibitor, for the potential oral capsule treatment of type 2 diabetes in China. By April 2019, a phase Ia trial was completed

https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2013169546&recNum=43&docAn=US2013039164&queryString=EN_ALL:nmr%20AND%20PA:(ELI%20LILLY%20AND%20COMPANY)%20&maxRec=4416

The present invention is in the field of treatment of diabetes and other diseases and disorders associated with hyperglycemia. Diabetes is a group of diseases that is characterized by high levels of blood glucose. It affects approximately 25 million people in the United States and is also the 7th leading cause of death in U.S. according to the 201 1 National Diabetes Fact Sheet (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Sodium-coupled glucose cotransporters (SGLT’s) are one of the transporters known to be responsible for the absorption of carbohydrates, such as glucose. More specifically, SGLTl is responsible for transport of glucose across the brush border membrane of the small intestine. Inhibition of SGLTl may result in reduced absorption of glucose in the small intestine, thus providing a useful approach to treating diabetes.

U.S. Patent No. 7,655,632 discloses certain pyrazole derivatives with human SGLTl inhibitory activity which are further disclosed as useful for the prevention or treatment of a disease associated with hyperglycemia, such as diabetes. In addition, WO 201 1/039338 discloses certain pyrazole derivatives with SGLT1/SGLT2 inhibitor activity which are further disclosed as being useful for treatment of bone diseases, such as osteoporosis.

There is a need for alternative drugs and treatment for diabetes. The present invention provides certain novel inhibitors of SGLTl which may be suitable for the treatment of diabetes.

Accordingly, the present invention provides a compound of Formula II:

-YL]-2-METHYLBENZYL}-5-(PROPAN-2-YL)-1 H-PYRAZOL-3-YL

BETA-D- GLUCOPYRANOSIDE ACETATE

The present invention relates to a novel SGLT1 inhibitor which is an acetate salt of a pyrazole compound, to pharmaceutical compositions comprising the compound, to methods of using the compound to treat physiological disorders, and to intermediates and processes useful in the synthesis of the compound.

The present invention is in the field of treatment of diabetes and other diseases and disorders associated with hyperglycemia. Diabetes is a group of diseases that is characterized by high levels of blood glucose. It affects approximately 25 million people in the United States and is also the 7th leading cause of death in U.S. according to the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Sodium-coupled glucose cotransporters (SGLT’s) are one of the transporters known to be responsible for the absorption of carbohydrates, such as glucose. More specifically, SGLT1 is responsible for transport of glucose across the brush border membrane of the small intestine. Inhibition of SGLT1 may result in reduced absorption of glucose in the small intestine, thus providing a useful approach to treating diabetes.

U.S. Patent No. 7,655,632 discloses certain pyrazole derivatives with human SGLT1 inhibitory activity which are further disclosed as useful for the prevention or treatment of a disease associated with hyperglycemia, such as diabetes. In addition, WO 2011/039338 discloses certain pyrazole derivatives with SGLT1/SGLT2 inhibitor activity which are further disclosed as being useful for treatment of bone diseases, such as osteoporosis.

There is a need for alternative drugs and treatment for diabetes. The present invention provides an acetate salt of a pyrazole compound, which is an SGLT1 inhibitor, and as such, may be suitable for the treatment of certain disorders, such as diabetes. Accordingly, the present invention provides a compound of Formula I:

The present invention is in the field of treatment of diabetes and other diseases and conditions associated with hyperglycemia. Diabetes is a group of diseases characterized by high blood sugar levels. It affects approximately 25 million people in the United States, and according to the 2011 National Diabetes Bulletin, it is also the seventh leading cause of death in the United States (US Department of Health and Human Resources Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Sodium-coupled glucose cotransporters (SGLT’s) are one of the transporters known to be responsible for the uptake of carbohydrates such as glucose. More specifically, SGLT1 is responsible for transporting glucose across the brush border membrane of the small intestine. Inhibition of SGLT1 can result in a decrease in glucose absorption in the small intestine, thus providing a useful method of treating diabetes.

Alternative medicines and treatments for diabetes are needed. The present invention provides an acetate salt of a pyrazole compound which is an SGLT1 inhibitor, and thus it is suitable for treating certain conditions such as diabetes.

U.S. Patent No. 7,655,632 discloses certain pyrazole derivatives having human SGLT1 inhibitory activity, which are also disclosed for use in the prevention or treatment of diseases associated with hyperglycemia, such as diabetes. Moreover, WO 2011/039338 discloses certain pyrazole derivatives having SGLT1/SGLT2 inhibitor activity, which are also disclosed for use in the treatment of bone diseases such as osteoporosis.

Diabetes is a group of lifelong metabolic diseases characterized by multiple causes of chronic hyperglycemia. Long-term increase in blood glucose can cause damage to large blood vessels and microvessels and endanger the heart, brain, kidney, peripheral nerves, eyes, feet and so on. According to the statistics of the World Health Organization, there are more than 100 complications of diabetes, which is the most common complication, and the incidence rate is also on the rise. The kidney plays a very important role in the body’s sugar metabolism. Glucose does not pass through the lipid bilayer of the cell membrane in the body, and must rely on the glucose transporter on the cell membrane. Sodium-coupled glucose co-transporters (SGLTs) are one of the transporters known to be responsible for the uptake of carbohydrates such as glucose. More specifically, SGLT1 is responsible for transporting glucose across the brush border membrane of the small intestine. Inhibition of SGLT1 results in a decrease in glucose absorption in the small intestine and can therefore be used in the treatment of diabetes.
Ellerelli has developed a novel SGLTs inhibitor for alternative drugs and treatments for diabetes. CN105705509 discloses the SGLTs inhibitor-pyrazole compound, which has the structure shown in the following formula (1):

Axelar is developing picropodophyllin, a small-molecule IGF-1 receptor antagonist for the treatment of cancer including NSCLC and malignant astrocytoma. In February 2019, a phase Ia study was planned to initiate for solid tumor in March 2019.

Picropodophyllin is a cyclolignan alkaloid found in the mayapple plant family (Podophyllum peltatum), and a small molecule inhibitor of the insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) with potential antineoplastic activity. Picropodophyllin specifically inhibits the activity and downregulates the cellular expression of IGF1R without interfering with activities of other growth factor receptors, such as receptors for insulin, epidermal growth factor, platelet-derived growth factor, fibroblast growth factor and mast/stem cell growth factor (KIT). This agent shows potent activity in the suppression o f tumor cell proliferation and the induction of tumor cell apoptosis. IGF1R, a receptor tyrosine kinase overexpressed in a variety of human cancers, plays a critical role in the growth and survival of many types of cancer cells.

Picropodophyllotoxin is an organic heterotetracyclic compound that has a furonaphthodioxole skeleton bearing 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl and hydroxy substituents. It has a role as an antineoplastic agent, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, an insulin-like growth factor receptor 1 antagonist and a plant metabolite. It is a lignan, a furonaphthodioxole and an organic heterotetracyclic compound.

Picropodophyllin has been investigated for the treatment of Non Small Cell Lung Cancer.

One of the largest challenges in pharmaceutical drug development is that drug compounds often are poorly soluble, or even insoluble, in aqeous media. Insufficient drug solubility means insufficient bioavailability, as well as poor plasma exposure of the drug when administered to humans and animals. Variability of plasma exposure in humans is yet a problem when developing drugs which are poorly soluble, or even insoluble, in aqeous media.

It is estimated that between 40% and 70 % of all new chemical entities identified in drug discovery programs, are insufficiently soluble in aqeous media (M. Lindenberg, S et al: European Journal of Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceuticals, vol. 58, no.2, pp. 265-278, 2004). Scientists have investigated various ways of solving the problem with poor drug solubility in order to enhance bioavailability of poorly absorbed drugs, aiming at increasing their clinical efficacy when administered orally.

Technologies such as increase of the surface area and hence dissolution may sometimes solve solubility problems. Other techniques that may also solve bioavailability problems are addition of surfactants and polymers. However, each chemical compound has its own unique chemical and physical properties, and hence has its own unique challenges when being formulated into a pharmaceutical product that can exert its clinical efficacy.

Picropodophyllin is an insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor inhibitor fiGF-lR inhibitor) small-molecule compound belonging to the class of compounds denominated cyclolignans, having the chemical structure:

The patent applicant is presently entering clinical phase II development with its development compound picropodophyllin (AXL1717). However, picropodophyllin is poorly soluble in aqueous media. In a phase I clinical study performed by the applicant in 2012 (Ekman S et al; Acta Oncologica, 2016; 55: pp. 140-148), it was discovered that picropodophyllin, when administered as an oral suspension to lung cancer patients, resulted in unacceptable variability in drug exposure. A large variability in plasma exposure of the active drug picropodophyllin occurred not only within certain patients, but also between several patients.

Yet a problem with administering picropodophyllin as an aqeous solution, is that due to the poor solubility in aqueous media, it is difficult or even impossible to reach the required therapeutic doses.

The compound picropodophyllin is furthermore physically unstable, and transforms from amorphous picropodophyllin into crystalline picropodophyllin. Yet a stability problem with picropodophyllin is that it is chemically unstable in solution.

The formylation of 6-bromo-1,3-benzodioxole-5-carbaldehyde dimethyl acetal (I) with BuLi and DMF gives the 6-formyl derivative (II), which is reduced with NaBH4 in ethanol to yield the corresponding carbinol (III). The cyclization of (III) with dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate (V) in hot acetic acid (through the nonisolated intermediate (IV)) affords dimethyl 1,4-epoxy-6,7-(methylenedioxy)naphthalene-2,3-dicarboxylate (VI), which is hydrogenated with H2 over Pd/C in ethyl acetate to give the (1R*,2S*,3R*,4S*)-tetrahydro derivative (VII). The reduction of (VII) with LiAlH4 in refluxing ethyl ether affords the corresponding bis carbinol (VIII), which is treated with acetic anhydride to afford the diacetate (IX). The enzymatic monodeacetylation of (VIII) with PPL enzyme in DMSO/buffer gives (1R,2R,3S,4S)-2-(acetoxymethyl)-1,4-epoxy-3-(hydroxymethyl)-6,7-(methylenedioxy)-1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (X), which is silylated with TBDMS-Cl and imidazole in DMF yielding the silyl ether (XI). The hydrolysis of the acetoxy group of (XI) with K2CO3 in methanol affords the carbinol (XII), which is oxidized with oxalyl chloride in dichloromethane affording the carbaldehyde (XIII). The exchange of the silyl protecting group of (XIII) (for stability problems) provided the triisopropylsilyl ether (XIV), which is treated with sodium methoxide in methanol to open the epoxide ring yielding the hydroxy aldehyde (XV). The protection of the hydroxy group of (XV) with 2-(trimethylsilyl)ethoxymethyl chloride and DIEA in dichloromethane provides the corresponding ether (XVI). The carbinol (III) can also be obtained directly from 6-bromo-1,3-benzodioxole-5-carbaldehyde dimethyl acetal (I) by reaction with formaldehyde and BuLi in THF.

The oxidation of the aldehyde group of (XVI) with NaClO2 in tert-butanol affords the corresponding carboxylic acid (XVII), which is condensed with 2-oxazolidinone (XVIII) by means of carbonyldiimidazole (CDI) in THF to give the acyl imidazolide (XIX). The arylation of (XIX) with 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenylmagnesium bromide (XX) in THF yields the expected addition product (XXI), which is cyclized by means of TBAF in hot THF to afford the tetracyclic intermediate (XXII). Isomerization of the cis-lactone ring of (XXII) with LDA in THF affords intermediate (XXIII) with its lactone ring with the correct trans-conformation. Finally, this compound is deprotected with ethyl mercaptane and MgBr2 in ethyl ether to provide the target compound.

The intermediate trans-8-oxo-5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-5,6,7,8-tetra-hydronaphtho[2,3-d][1,3]benzodioxole-6-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (XI) has been obtained by several different ways: (a) The condensation of benzophenone (XXXVIII) with diethyl malonate (XXXIX) by means of t-BuOK gives the alkylidenemalonate (XL), which is hydrogenated with H2 over Pd/C to the alkylmalonate hemiester (XLI). The reaction of (XLI) with acetyl chloride affords the mixed anhydride (XLII), which is finally cyclized to the target (XI) by means of SnCl4. (b) The cyclization of the malonic ester derivative (XLIII) by means of Ti(CF3–CO2)3 gives the 5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphtho [2,3-d][1,3]dioxole-6,6-dicarboxylic acid dimethyl ester (XLIV), which is finally oxidized and decarboxylated with NBS and NaOH in methanol to afford the target intermediate (XI). (c) The cyclization of the benzylidenemalonate (XLV) with the aryllithium derivative (XLVI) gives the 8-methoxy-5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphtho[2,3-d][1,3]dioxole-6,6-dicarboxylic acid dimethyl ester (XLVII), which is demethylated with TFA and oxidized with CrO3 and pyridine to the target compound (XI). (d) The cyclopropanation of the chalcone (XLVIII) with (ethoxycarbonyl) (dimethylsulfonium)methylide (XLIX) gives the cyclopropanecarboxylate (L), which is finally rearranged with BF3/Et2O to the target intermediate (IX).

The cyclization of 3,4,5-trimethoxycinnamic acid ethyl ester (LI) with malonic acid ethyl ester potassium salt (LII) by means of Mn(OAc)3 gives the tetrahydrofuranone (LIII), which is acylated with 1,3-benzodioxol-5-ylcarbonyl chloride (LIV) yielding the tetrahydrofuranone (LV). Finally, this compound is rearranged and decarboxylated with SnCl4 to the target intermediate (XI).

The cyclization of 6-[1-hydroxy-1-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)methyl]-1,3-benzodioxol-5-carbaldehyde dimethylacetal (LVI) by means of AcOH gives 5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-1,3-dioxolo[4,5-f]isobenzofuran (LVII), which is submitted to a Diels-Alder cyclization with acetylenedicarboxylic acid dimethyl ester (LVIII) yielding the epoxy derivative (LIX). The selective reduction of (LIX) with LiBEt3H and H2 affords the carbinol (LX), which is treated with H2 over RaNi in order to open the epoxide ring to give the diol (LXI) with the wrong configuration at the secondary OH group. The treatment of (LXI) with aqueous acid isomerizes the secondary OH group to (LXII) with the suitable configuration. Finally, this compound is cyclized with DCC to the desired target compound.

The Diels-Alder cyclization of 5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-7H-pyrano[3,4-f][1,3]benzodioxol-7-one (I) with dimethyl maleate (LXIII) gives the expected adduct (LXIV), which by thermal extrusion of CO2 yields the dihydronaphthodioxole (LXV). This compound is then converted to dihydroxycompound (X), which is finally cyclized by means of ZnCl2 to provide the target compound. The Diels-Alder cyclization of 5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-7H-pyrano[3,4-f][1,3]benzodioxol-7-one (I) with dimethyl fumarate (LXVI) gives the expected adduct (LXVII), which by hydrogenation with H2 over Pd/C yields the tricarboxylic acid derivative (LXVIII). The reaction of (LXVIII) with Pb(OAc)4 affords the acetoxy derivative (LXIX), which is selectively reduced with LiBEt3H providing the diol (LXI) with the wrong configuration at the secondary OH group. The treatment of (LXI) with aqueous acid isomerizes the secondary OH group to give the previously described (X) with the suitable configuration.

The reaction of benzocyclobutane derivative (LXX) with isocyanate (LXXI) by means of Ph3SnOAc gives the carbamate (LXXII), which is cyclized by a thermal treatment with LiOH yielding the tetracyclic carboxylic acid (LXXIII). The opening of the oxazinone ring of (LXXIII) in basic medium affords the tricyclic amino acid (LXXIV), which is finally cyclized to the target compound by reaction with sodium nitrite in acidic medium (pH = 4).

The Diels-Alder cyclization of 5-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-7H-pyrano[3,4-f][1,3]benzodioxol-7-one (I) with the chiral dihydrofuranone (II) in hot acetonitrile gives the pentacyclic anhydride (III), which is opened with warm acetic acid yielding the carboxylic acid (IV). Hydrogenation of the benzylic double bond of (IV) with H2 over Pd/C affords (V), which is treated with lead tetraacetate and acetic acid in THF to give the acetoxy compound (VI). The hydrolysis of the acetoxy group and the menthol hemiacetal group with HCl in hot dioxane yields the diol (VII), which is treated with diazomethane in ether/methanol affording the aldehyde (VIII). The reduction of the aldehyde group of (VIII) with LiEt3BH in THF gives the diol (IX) as a diastereomeric mixture, which is treated with HCl in THF to afford the diol (X) with the right conformation. Finally, this compound is lactonized to the target compound with ZnCl2 in THF.

Sunshine Lake Pharma , a subsidiary of  HEC Pharm  is developing an oral capsule formulation of HEC-68498 (phase 1, in July 2019) sodium salt, a dual inhibitor of phosphoinositide-3 kinase and the mTOR pathway, for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and solid tumors

HEC 68498 is an oral inhibitor of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) and mammalian target of rapamycin in clinical development at HEC Pharm for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. A phase I trial is under way in healthy volunteers.

The phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI3 kinases or PI3Ks), a family of lipid kinases, have been found to play key regulatory roles in many cellular processes including cell survival, proliferation and differentiation. The PI3K enzymes consist of three classes with variable primary structure, function and substrate specificity. Class I PI3Ks consist of heterodimers of regulatory and catalytic subunits, and are subdivided into 1A and 1B based on their mode of activation. Class 1A PI3Ks are activated by various cell surface tyrosine kinases, and consist of the catalytic pl lO and regulatory p85 subunits. The three known isoforms of Class 1A pl lO are pl lOot, rΐ ΐqb, and rΐ ΐqd, which all contain an amino terminal regulatory interacting region (which interfaces with p85), a Ras binding domain, and a carboxy terminal catalytic domain. Class IB PI3Ks consist of the catalytic (pl lOy) and regulatory (p 101 ) subunits and are activated by G-protein coupled receptors. (“Small-molecule inhibitors of the PI3K signaling network” Future Med. Chem ., 2011, 3, 5, 549-565).

[0004] As major effectors downstream of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) and G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), PI3Ks transduce signals from various growth factors and cytokines into intracellular massages by generating phospholipids, which activate the serine-threonine protein kinase ART (also known as protein kinase B (PKB)) and other downstream effector pathways. The tumor suppressor or PTEN (phosphatase and tensin

homologue) is the most important negative regulator of the PI3K signaling pathway. (“Status of PBK/Akt/mTOR Pathway Inhibitors in Lymphoma.” Clin Lymphoma, Myeloma Leuk , 2014, 14(5), 335-342.)

[0005] The signaling network defined by phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI3Ks), AKT and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) controls most hallmarks of cancer, including cell cycle, survival, metabolism, motility and genomic instability. The pathway also contributes to cancer promoting aspects of the tumor environment, such as angiogenesis and inflammatory cell recruitment. The lipid second messenger produced by PI3K enzymes, phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-trisphosphate (PtdIns(3,4,5)P3; also known as PIP3), is constitutively elevated in most cancer cells and recruits cytoplasmic proteins to membrane-localized‘onco’ signal osomes.

[0006] Cancer genetic studies suggest that the PI3K pathway is the most frequently altered pathway in human tumors: the PIK3CA gene (encoding the PI3K catalytic isoform pl lOa) is the second most frequently mutated oncogene, and PTEN (encoding phosphatase and tensin homolog, the major PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 phosphatase) is among the most frequently mutated tumor suppressor genes. In accord, a recent genomic study of head and neck cancer found the PI3K pathway to be the most frequently mutated. Indeed, even in cancer cells expressing normal PI3K and PTEN genes, other lesions are present that activate the PI3K signaling network (that is, activated tyrosine kinases, RAS and AKT, etc ). As a net result of these anomalies, the PI3K pathway is activated, mutated or amplified in many malignancies, including in ovarian cancer (Campbell et al., Cancer Res., 2004, 64, 7678-7681; Levine et al., Clin. Cancer Res., 2005, 11, 2875-2878; Wang et al., Hum. Mutat., 2005, 25, 322; Lee et al., Gynecol. Oncol. ,2005, 97, 26-34), cervical cancer, breast cancer (Bachman et al.,· Cancer Biol., Ther, 2004, 3, 772-775; Levine et al., supra; Li et al., Breast Cancer Res. Treat., 2006, 96, 91-95; Saal et al., Cancer Res., 2005, 65, 2554-2559; Samuels and Velculescu, Cell Cycle, 2004, 3, 1221-1224), colorectal cancer (Samuels et al., Science, 2004, 304, 554; Velho et al., Eur. J. Cancer, 2005, 41, 1649-1654), endometrial cancer (Oda et al ., Cancer Res., 2005, 65, 10669-10673), gastric carcinomas (Byun et al., M. J. Cancer, 2003 , 104, 318-327; Li et al., supra; Velho et al., supra; Lee et al., Oncogene, 2005 , 24, 1477-1480), hepatocellular carcinoma (Lee et al., id), small and non-small cell lung cancer (Tang et al., Lung Cancer 2006, 11, 181-191; Massion et al , Am. J. Respir. Crit. Care Med., 2004, 170, 1088-1094), thyroid carcinoma (Wu et al., J. Clin. Endocrinol. Metab., 2005, 90, 4688-4693),

acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) (Sujobert et al., Blood, 1997, 106, 1063-1066), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) (Hickey et al., J. Biol. Chem ., 2006, 281, 2441-2450), glioblastomas (Hartmann et al. Jlcta Neuropathol (Bert ), 2005, 109, 639-642; Samuels et al., supra), Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas (“PI3K and cancer: lessons, challenges and opportunities”, Nature Reviews Drug Discovery., 2014, 13, 140).

[0007] The PI3K pathway is hyperactivated in most cancers, yet the capacity of PI3K inhibitors to induce tumor cell death is limited. The efficacy of PI3K inhibition can also derive from interference with the cancer cells’ ability to respond to stromal signals, as illustrated by the approved PI3K5 inhibitor idelalisib in B-cell malignancies. Inhibition of the leukocyte-enriched PI3K5 or RI3Kg may unleash antitumor T-cell responses by inhibiting regulatory T cells and immune-suppressive myeloid cells. Moreover, tumor angiogenesis may be targeted by PI3K inhibitors to enhance cancer therapy. (“Targeting PI3K in Cancer: Impact on Tumor Cells, Their Protective Stroma, Angiogenesis, and Immunotherapy”, Cancer Discov., 2016, 6(10), 1090-1105.)

[0008] mTOR is a highly conserved serine-threonine kinase with lipid kinase activity and participitates as an effector in the PI3K/AKT pathway. mTOR exists in two distinct complexes, mTORCl and mTORC2, and plays an important role in cell proliferation by monitoring nutrient avaliability and cellular energy levels. The downstream targets of mTORCl are ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 and eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E-binding protein 1, both of which are crucial to the regulation of protein synthesis. (“Present and future of PI3K pathway inhibition in cancer: perspectives and limitations”, Current Med. Chem., 2011, 18, 2647-2685).

[0009] Knowledge about consequences of dysregulated mTOR signaling for tumorigenesis comes mostly from studies of pharmacologically disruption of mTOR by repamycin and its analogues such as temsirolimus (CCI-779) and everolimus (RADOOl).Rapamycin was found to inhibit mTOR and thereby induce G1 arrest and apoptosis. The mechanism of rapamycin growth inhibition was found to be related to formation of complexes of rapamycin with FK-binding protein 12 (FKBP-12). These complexes then bound with high affinity to mTOR, preventing activation and resulting in inhibition of protein translation and cell growth. Cellular effects of mTOR inhibition are even more pronounced in cells that have concomitant inactivation of PTEN. Antitumor activity of rapamycin was subsequently identified, and a number of rapamycin analogues such as temsirolimus and everolimus have been approved by the US Food and Drug

Administration for the treatment certain types of cancer.

[0010] Fibrosis is the formation of excess fibrous connective tissue in an organ or tissue in a reparative or reactive process. Examples of fibrosis include, but are not limited to pulmonary fibrosis, liver fibrosis, dermal fibrosis, and renal fibrosis. Pulmonary fibrosis, also called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), interstitial diffuse pulmonary fibrosis, inflammatory pulmonary fibrosis, or fibrosing alveolitis, is a lung disorder and a heterogeneous group of conditions characterized by abnormal formation of fibrous tissue between alveoli caused by alveolitis comprising cellular infiltration into the alveolar septae with resulting fibrosis. The effects of IPF are chronic, progressive, and often fatal.

[0011] The clinical course of IPF is variable and largely unpredictable. IPF is ultimately fatal, with historical data suggesting a median survival time of 2-3 years from diagnosis. A decline in forced vital capacity (FVC) is indicative of disease progression in patients with IPF and change in FVC is the most commonly used endpoint in clinical trials. A decline in FVC of 5% or 10% of the predicted value over 6-12 months has been associated with increased mortality in patients with IPF.

[0012] Our understanding of the pathogenesis of IPF has evolved from that of a predominantly inflammatory disease to one driven by a complex interplay of repeated epithelial cell damage and aberrant wound healing, involving fibroblast recruitment, proliferation and differentiation, and culminating in excess deposition of extracellular matrix. This shift in knowledge prompted a change in the type of compounds being investigated as potential therapies, with those targeted at specific pathways in the development and progression of fibrosis becoming the focus.

[0013] In patients with IPF, the mechanisms whereby PI3K/mTOR inhibitors act may involve inhibition of kinases such as PI3Ks and mTOR. This results in inactivation of cellular receptors for mediators involved in the development of pulmonary fibrosis. As a result, fibroblast proliferation is inhibited and extracellular matrix deposition is reduced. (“Update on diagnosis and treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis”, J Bras Pneumol. 2015, 41(5), 454-466.)

[0014] Accordingly, small-molecule compounds that specially inhibit, regulate and/or modulate the signal transduction of kinases, particularly including PI3K and mTOR as described above, are desirable as a means to prevent, manage, or treat proliferative disorders and fibrosis, particular idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in a patient. One such small-molecule is A-(5-(3-cyanopyrazolo[l,5-a]pyridin-5-yl)-2-methoxypyridin-3-yl)-2,4-difluorobenzenesulfon-amide, which has the chemical structure as shown in the following:

[0015] WO 2014130375A1 described the synthesis of N-(5 -(3 -cyanopyrazol o [l,5-a]pyridin-5-yl)-2-methoxypyridin-3-yl)-2,4-difluorobenzenesulfonamide (Example 3) and also disclosed the therapeutic activity of this molecule in inhibiting, regulating and modulating the signal transduction of protein kinases.

[0016] Different salts and solid state forms of an active pharmaceutical ingredient may possess different properties. Such variations in the properties of different salts and solid state forms may provide a basis for improving formulation, for example, by facilitating better processing or handling characteristics, improving the dissolution profile, stability (polymorph as well as chemical stability) and shelf-life. These variations in the properties of different salts and solid state forms may also provide improvements to the final dosage form, for example, if they serve to improve bioavailability. Different salts and solid state forms of an active pharmaceutical ingredient may also give rise to a variety of polymorphs or crystalline forms, which may in turn provide additional opportunities to assess variations in the properties and characteristics of a solid active pharmaceutical ingredient.

Different salts and solid state forms of /V-(5-(3-cyanopyrazolo[l,5- ]pyridin-5-yl)-2-methoxypyridin-3-yl)-2,4-difluorobenzenesulfonamide are described herein.

Denali Therapeutics  is developing DNL-151 (phase 1, in July 2019), a lead from a program of small-molecule inhibitors of LRRK2 originally licensed from Genentech, for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

Leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) is a complex signaling protein that is a key therapeutic target, particularly in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Combined genetic and biochemical evidence supports a hypothesis in which the LRRK2 kinase function is causally involved in the pathogenesis of sporadic and familial forms of PD, and therefore that LRRK2 kinase inhibitors could be useful for treatment (Christensen, K.V. (2017) Progress in medicinal chemistry 56:37-80). Inhibition of the kinase activity of LRRK2 is under investigation as a possible treatment for Parkinson’s disease (Fuji, R.N. et al (2015) Science Translational Medicine 7(273):ral5;

Taymans, J.M. et al (2016) Current Neuropharmacology 14(3):214-225). A group of LRRK2 kinase inhibitors have been studied (Estrada, A.A. et al (2015) Jour. Med. Chem. 58(17): 6733-6746; Estrada, A.A. et al (2013) Jour. Med. Chem. 57:921-936; Chen, H. et al (2012) Jour. Med. Chem. 55:5536-5545; Estrada, A.A. et al (2015) Jour. Med.

PATENT

WO2012062783 , assigned to Hoffmann-La Roche , but naming inventors specifically associated with both Genentech and BioFocus (which had an agreement with Genentech for drug discovery programs); the compound was also later identified in J.Med.Chem (57(3), 921-936, 2014) in an article from these two companies, with the lab code GNE-0877. So while this represents the first application in the name of Denali Therapeutics Inc that focuses on this compound, it is likely that it provides the structure of DNL-151 , a lead from a program of small-molecule inhibitors of leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) originally licensed from Genentech, being developed for the oral treatment of Parkinson’s disease, and which had begun phase I trials by December 2017 (when this application was lodged).

claiming novel crystalline and amorphous forms of pyrimidinylamino-pyrazole compound, useful for treating Alzheimer’s disease, breast tumor, type I diabetes mellitus and Crohn’s disease.

Novel crystalline and amorphous forms of 2-methyl-2-(3-methyl-4-(4-(methylamino)-5-(trifluoromethyl)pyrimidin-2-ylamino)-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)propanenitrile (which is substantially pure form) and their anhydrous and solvates such as cyclohexanol solvate (designated as Forms B-D), processes for their preparation and compositions comprising them are claimed. The compound is disclosed to be leucine rich serine threonine kinase 2 inhibitor, useful for treating Gaucher disease, Alzheimer’s disease, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease, prostate tumor, Lewy body dementia, mild cognitive impairment, breast tumor, type I diabetes mellitus and Crohn’s disease.

The present disclosure relates to crystalline polymorph or amorphous forms of a pyrimidinylamino-pyrazole kinase inhibitor, referred to herein as the Formula I compound and having the structure:

FORMULA I COMPOUND

The present disclosure includes polymorphs and amorphous forms of Formula I compound, (CAS Registry Number 1374828-69-9), having the structure:

and named as: 2-methyl-2-(3-methyl-4-(4-(methylamino)-5-(trifluoromethyl)pyrimidin-2-ylamino)-lH-pyrazol-l-yl)propanenitrile (WO 2012/062783; US 8815882; US 2012/0157427, each of which are incorporated by reference). As used herein, the Formula I compound includes tautomers, and pharmaceutically acceptable salts or cocrystals thereof. The Formula I compound is the API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) in formulations for use in the treatment of neurodegenerative and other disorders, with pKa when protonated calculated at 6.7 and 2.1.

CRYSTALLIZATION 

Initial polymorph screening experiments were performed using a variety of

crystallization or solid transition methods, including: anti-solvent addition, reverse anti-solvent addition, slow evaporation, slow cooling, slurry at room temperature (RT), slurry at 50 °C, solid vapor diffusion, liquid vapor diffusion, and polymer induced crystallization. By all these methods, the Form A crystal type was identified. Polarized light microscopy (PLM) images of Form A obtained from various polymorph screening methods were collected (Example 5).

Particles obtained via anti-solvent addition showed small size of about 20 to 50 microns (pm) diameter while slow evaporation, slow cooling (except for THF/isooctane), liquid vapor diffusion and polymer-induced crystallization resulted in particles with larger size. Adding isooctane into a dichloromethane (DCM) solution of the Formula I compound produced particles with the most uniform size. Crude Formula I compound crystallized from THF///-heptane and then was micronized. A crystallization procedure was developed to control particle size.

A total of four crystal forms (Forms A, B, C, and D) and an amorphous form E of Formula I compound were prepared, including 3 anhydrates (Form A, C, and D) and one solvate (Form B). Slurry competition experiments indicated that Form D was thermodynamically more stable when the water activity aw< 0.2 at RT, while Form C was more stable when aw> 0.5 at RT. The 24 hrs solubility evaluation showed the solubility of Form A, C and D in FLO at RT was 0.18, 0.14 and 0.11 mg/mL, respectively. DVS (dynamic vapor sorption) results indicated that Form A and D were non-hygroscopic as defined by less than 0.1% reversible water intake in DVS, while Form C was slightly hygroscopic. Certain characterization data and observations of the crystal forms are shown in Table 1.

Table 1 Characterization summary for crystal forms of Formula I compound

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) analysis of Forms A and C showed that Form C had higher melting point and higher heat of fusion (Table 1), suggesting that the two forms are monotropic with Form C being the more stable form. Competitive slurry experiments with 1 : 1 Form A and C in a variety of solvents always produced Form C confirming that Form C was

more stable than Form A. In accordance with this, Form C was produced even when the crystallization batch was seeded with seeds of Form A.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Example 1

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

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

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

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

Characterisation of Example 1

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

1 endotherm onset: 171.82°C

peak maximum: 174.55°C

There was an endotherm post the main endotherm.

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

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

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

Example 2

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

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

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

Characterisation of Example 2

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

One distinct endotherm onset: 247.34°C

peak maximum: 250.34°C

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

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

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

Example 3

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

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

Example 4

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

Example 5

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

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

Example 6

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

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

Target: Ecto-5’-nucleotidase (CD73)

Disease: Cancer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[00321] Step 3:

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

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

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

● 3 h slurry at ambient

● 3h slurry at 50 °C

● 24 h slurry at ambient

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The intermediate known as CP-57 is formed at step la without isolation (telescoped) and taken to the next step to form the compound known as CP-58 at step lb. Suzuki coupling using CP-60 during step 2 generates crude CPI-444 which undergoes crystallization during step 3 to form CPI-444.

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

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

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

Inside a 22 L three neck round bottom flask the filtrates were mechanically agitated under a N2 blanket. WFI water (7.13 L, 15 vol) was slowly added via addition funnel over 1 h at ambient temperature, and aged for 1 h. The slurry was heated to 55±5 °C and maintained the temperature for 30 min. This heating and subsequent cooling were repeated twice more. After reaching ambient

temperature the final time, the mixture was stirred for at least 2 hours. The reaction mixture was filtered and the reactor rinsed with WFI water (2.38 L, 5.0 vol, 3x). The cake was dried under N2 for 30 minutes and then transferred to a glass dish. The material was dried under full vacuum at 55±5 °C. The desired product was obtained 368.1 g (77%) as light yellow solids. This material was 99.6% pure by HPLC and had a Pd content of 3.6 ppm.

EXAMPLE 7. Removal of Residual Palladium With Polymer-Bound Thiol (SiST)

[0359] Crude CPI-444 (24.48 g, pd = 1267 ppm) and THF (244.8 mL, 10 vol) were charged to a 500 mL 4-necked flask fitted with mechanical agitation, a condenser with nitrogen balloon and a thermometer. The slurry was heated to 60 °C for 20 minutes and then slowly cooled to 45 °C. SiST (36.72 g) was added to the solution and the mixture was stirred at 42 °C for 14 h. The mixture was filtered and washed by THF (24 mL, 1 vol, twice; Pd= 13.12 ppm). H20 (120 mL, 5 vol) and IPA (120 mL, 5vol) were charged to the flask. The slurry was heated to 70 °C and maintained for 1 h (the slurry became solution). The solution was slowly cooled to room temperature and the slurry was added H20 (360 mL, 15 vol) and heated to 55 °C for 1 h. The slurry was cooled to room temperature and then heated to 55 °C for 1 h. The slurry was cooled to rt. and stirred at rt. for 2 h. The slurry was filtered and washed by H20 (100 mL, 4 vol, three times). The wet cake (28.36 g) was dried by 10 mmHg and 50 °C for overnight (14h) and the weight of CPI-444 was 19.31 g (79% recovery).

[0360] CUNO Filter Cartridge 55 S

[0361] CPI-444 (5.0 g, Pd 14.06 ppm) and THF (50 mL, 10 vol) were charged to a 100 mL 3-necked flask fitted with stirring bar, a condenser with nitrogen balloon and a thermometer. The slurry was heated to 60 °C for 20 minutes and added CUNO 55S filter (0.75 g, 15w%). The mixture was stirred at 60 °C for 1 h. The mixture was filtered and washed by THF (5 mL, 1 vol, twice). The filtrate was concentrated. The solid, H20 (25 mL, 5 vol) and IPA (25 mL, 5vol) were charged to 250 mL 3 -necked flask fitted with stirring bar, a condenser with nitrogen balloon and a thermometer. The slurry was heated to 70 °C and maintained for 1 h (the slurry became solution). The solution was slowly cooled to rt.(40 minutes) The slurry was added H20 (75 mL, 15 vol) and then heated to 55 °C for 1 h. The slurry was cooled to rt. (30 minutes) and stirred at rt. for 2 h. The slurry was filtered and washed by H20 (20 mL, 4 vol, three times). The cake (6.355 g) was dried by 10 mmHg and 50 °C

for overnight (16 h) and the weight of CPI-444 was 4.281 g (85% recovery). Pd content(ppm) = 2.02 ppm.

[0362] Polymer-bound Thiol: SiST

[0363] CPI-444(5 g; Pd 14.06ppm) was dissolved in THF (50 mL) at 60 °C. The solution was cooled to 55 °C and SiST (7.5 g) was added to the solution. The solution was stirred at 50-55 °C for 16 h. The solution was filtered through celite and a 0.2 micron filter. The filtrate was tested for Pd content. Result: 2.43 ppm.
