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).

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).

WO2018210255

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.

EXAMPLES

Reaction Scheme 1

[0314] Referring to Reaction Scheme 1 , the process to manufacture triazolo[4,5]pyramidine derivatives and intermediates thereof in accordance with the present disclosure, such as the compound known as CPI-444, consists of three chemical steps and uses starting materials known as CP-55, CP-56 and CP-60. 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.

[0319] Starting material (C-55) is commercially available through Astatech, Inc., Keystone Business Park, 2525 Pearl Buck Road, Bristol, PA, 19007, USA; or Suven, SDE Serene Chambers, Road No.5, Avenue 7 Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, 500034, India.

[0355] A mixture of CPI-444 crude (16.00 g), THF (approximately 190 ml), L-cysteine

(approximately 8 g), and H20 (approximately 90 ml) were mixed and heated to a solution at about 60 °C for 1 hour. A solution of 28% NH OH (approximately 20 ml) was added and heated for an additional 15 minutes. The agitation was turned off to allow the layers allowed to settle. The aqueous layer was removed; the THF layer was washed with brine solution (approximately 15 ml). The combined aqueous solutions were back extracted with THF (approximately 15 ml). A 3M Biocap filter (BC0025LR55SP; available from 3M) was pretreated with THF (approximately 150 ml) at about 50 °C. The combined organic layers were recirculated through the Biocap at about 10 ml/min for approximately 3 hours and then filtered forward. The Biocap filter was rinsed with THF (approximately 130 ml) at about 50 °C. The combined filtrates were concentrated. Water

(approximately 80 ml) was added, and distilled to remove residual THF. 2-Propanol (approximately 1 10 ml) was added to the slurry, and the mixture was heated to a solution. The solution was cooled to 20 °C and water (approximately 240 ml) was added. The slurry was performed in series by heating to about 55 °C and held that that temperature for approximately 30 minutes, cooled to 20 °C over 30 minutes, and held at 20 °C for 30 minutes. This heating cycle was repeated two more. The slurry was then held at 20 °C for approximately 12 hours. The slurry was filtered, and the product was washed with water (approximately 300 ml). The wet cake (about 23 g) was dried in the vacuum oven to obtain an off white solid (13.6 g; 85% yield;99.9% purity; Pd = 25 ppm).

Bristol-Myers Squibb
, following its acquisition of Flexus Biosciences, is developing BMS-986205 (previously F- 001287), the lead from an immunotherapy program of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO1) inhibitors for the potential treatment of cancer. In February 2016, a phase I/IIa trial was initiated .

BMS-986205 (ONO-7701) is being evaluated at Bristol-Myers Squibb in phase I/II clinical trials for the oral treatment of adult patients with advanced cancers in combination with nivolumab. Early clinical development is also ongoing at Ono in Japan for the treatment of hematologic cancer and for the treatment of solid tumors.

In April 2017, data from the trial were presented at the 108th AACR Annual Meeting in Washington DC. As of February 2017, the MTD had not been reached, but BMS-986205 plus nivolumab treatment was well tolerated, with only two patients discontinuing treatment due to DLTs. The most commonly reported treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs) were decreased appetite, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. Grade 3 TRAEs were reported in three patients during the combination therapy; however, no grade 3 events were reported during BMS-986205 monotherapy lead-in. No grade 4 or 5 TRAEs were reported with BMS-986205 alone or in combination with nivolumab

Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO; also known as IDOl) is an IFN-γ target gene that plays a role in immunomodulation. IDO is an oxidoreductase and one of two enzymes that catalyze the first and rate-limiting step in the conversion of tryptophan to N-formyl-kynurenine. It exists as a 41kD monomer that is found in several cell populations, including immune cells, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts. IDO is relatively well-conserved between species, with mouse and human sharing 63% sequence identity at the amino acid level. Data derived from its crystal structure and site-directed mutagenesis show that both substrate binding and the relationship between the substrate and iron-bound dioxygenase are necessary for activity. A homolog to IDO (ID02) has been identified that shares 44% amino acid sequence homology with IDO, but its function is largely distinct from that of IDO. (See, e.g., Serafini P, et al, Semin. Cancer Biol, 16(l):53-65 (Feb. 2006) and Ball, H.J. et al, Gene, 396(1):203-213 (Jul. 2007)).

IDO plays a major role in immune regulation, and its immunosuppressive function manifests in several manners. Importantly, IDO regulates immunity at the T cell level, and a nexus exists between IDO and cytokine production. In addition, tumors frequently manipulate immune function by upregulation of IDO. Thus, modulation of IDO can have a therapeutic impact on a number of diseases, disorders and conditions.

A pathophysiological link exists between IDO and cancer. Disruption of immune homeostasis is intimately involved with tumor growth and progression, and the production of IDO in the tumor microenvironment appears to aid in tumor growth and metastasis. Moreover, increased levels of IDO activity are associated with a variety of different tumors (Brandacher, G. et al, Clin. Cancer Res., 12(4): 1144-1151 (Feb. 15, 2006)).

Treatment of cancer commonly entails surgical resection followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The standard treatment regimens show highly variable degrees of long-term success because of the ability of tumor cells to essentially escape by regenerating primary tumor growth and, often more importantly, seeding distant metastasis. Recent advances in the treatment of cancer and cancer-related diseases, disorders and conditions comprise the use of combination therapy incorporating immunotherapy with more traditional chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Under most scenarios, immunotherapy is associated with less toxicity than traditional chemotherapy because it utilizes the patient’s own immune system to identify and eliminate tumor cells.

In addition to cancer, IDO has been implicated in, among other conditions, immunosuppression, chronic infections, and autoimmune diseases or disorders (e.g. , rheumatoid arthritis). Thus, suppression of tryptophan degradation by inhibition of IDO activity has tremendous therapeutic value. Moreover, inhibitors of IDO can be used to enhance T cell activation when the T cells are suppressed by pregnancy, malignancy, or a virus (e.g., HIV). Although their roles are not as well defined, IDO inhibitors may also find use in the treatment of patients with neurological or neuropsychiatric diseases or disorders (e.g., depression).

Small molecule inhibitors of IDO have been developed to treat or prevent IDO-related diseases. For example, the IDO inhibitors 1-methyl-DL-tryptophan; p-(3-benzofuranyl)-DL-alanine; p-[3-benzo(b)thienyl]-DL-alanine; and 6-nitro-L-tryptophan have been used to modulate T cell-mediated immunity by altering local extracellular concentrations of tryptophan and tryptophan metabolites (WO 99/29310). Compounds having IDO inhibitory activity are further reported in WO 2004/094409.

In view of the role played by indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase in a diverse array of diseases, disorders and conditions, and the limitations (e.g., efficacy) of current IDO inhibitors, new IDO modulators, and compositions and methods associated therewith, are needed.

In April 2017, preclinical data were presented at the 108th AACR Annual Meeting in Washington DC. BMS-986205 inhibited kynurenine production with IC50 values of 1.7, 1.1 and > 2000 and 4.6, 6.3 and > 2000 nM in human (HeLa, HEK293 expressing human IDO-1 and tryptophan-2, 3-dioxygenase cell-based assays) and rat (M109, HEK293 expressing mouse ID0-1 and -2 cell-based assays) respectively. In human SKOV-3 xenografts (serum and tumor) AUC (0 to 24h; pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic [PK and PD])) was 0.8, 4.2 and 23 and 3.5, 11 and 40 microM h, respectively; area under the effect curve (PK and PD) was 39, 32 and 41 and 60, 63 and 76% kyn, at BMS-986205 (5, 25 and 125 mg/kg, qd×5), respectively

In April 2017, preclinical data were presented at the 253rd ACS National Meeting and Exhibition in San Francisco, CA. BMS-986205 showed potent and selective inhibition of IDO-1 enzyme (IC50 = 1.7nM) and potent growth inhibition in cellular assays (IC50 = 3.4 nM) in SKOV3 cells. A good pharmacokinetic profile was seen at oral and iv doses in rats, dogs and monkeys. The compound showed good oral exposure and efficacy in in vivo assays

Preclinical studies were performed to evaluate the activity of BMS-986205, a potent and selective optimized indoleamine 2, 3-dioxygenase (IDO)- 1inhibitor, for the treatment of cancer. BMS-986205 inhibited kynurenine production with IC50 values of 1.7, 1.1 and > 2000 and 4.6, 6.3 and > 2000 nM in human (HeLa, HEK293 expressing human IDO-1 and tryptophan-2, 3-dioxygenase cell-based assays) and rat (M109, HEK293 expressing mouse ID0-1 and -2 cell-based assays) respectively. BMS-986205 was also found to be potent when compared with IDO-1from other species (human < dog equivalent monkey equivalent mouse > rat). In cell-free systems, incubation of inhibitor lead to loss of heme absorbance of IDO-1 which was observed in the presence of BMS-986205 (10 microM), while did not observed with epacadostat (10 microM). The check inhibitory activity and check reversibility (24 h after compound removal) of BMS-986205 was found to be < 1 and 18% in M109 (mouse) and < 1 and 12% SKOV3 (human) cells, respectively. In human whole blood IDO-1, human DC mixed lymphocyte reaction and human T cells cocultured with SKOV3 cells- cell based assays, BMS-986205 showed potent cellular effects (inhibition of kynurenine and T-cell proliferation 3H-thymidine) with IC50 values of 2 to 42 (median 9.4 months), 1 to 7 and 15 nM, respectively. In human SKOV-3 xenografts (serum and tumor) AUC (0 to 24h; pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic [PK and PD])) was 0.8, 4.2 and 23 and 3.5, 11 and 40 microM h, respectively; area under the effect curve (PK and PD) was 39, 32 and 41 and 60, 63 and 76% kyn, at BMS-986205 (5, 25 and 125 mg/kg, qd×5), respectively. In vivo human-SKOV3 and hWB-xenografts, IC50 values of BMS-986205 were 3.4 and 9.4 NM, respectively. The ADME of BMS-986205 at parameters iv/po dose was 0.5/2, 0.5/1.5 and 0.5/1.2 mg/kg, respectively; iv/clearance was 27, 25 and 19 ml, min/kg, respectively; iv Vss was 3.8, 5.7 and 4.1 l/kg, respectively; t1/2 (iv) was 3.9, 4.7 and 6.6 h, respectively; fraction (po) was 64, 39 and 10%, respectively. At the time of presentation, BMS-986205 was being evaluated in combination with nivolumab.

This compound showed potent and selective inhibition of IDO-1 enzyme (IC50 = 1.7nM) and potent growth inhibition in cellular assays (IC50 = 3.4 nM) in SKOV3 cells. The pharmacokinetic profile in rats dosed at 0.5 mg/kg iv and 2 mg/kg po, with clearance, Vss, half-life and bioavailability of 27 ml/min/kg, 3.8 l/kg, 3.9 h and 4%, respectively; in dogs at 0.5 iv and 1.5 po mg/kg dosing results were 25 ml/min/kg, 5.7 l/kg, 4.7 h and 39%; and, in cynomolgus monkeys with the same doses as dogs results were 19 ml/min/kg, 4.1 l/kg, 6.6 h and 10%, respectively. The compound showed good oral exposure and efficacy in in vivo assays.

BMS-986158: a BET inhibitor for cancerAshvinikumar Gavai of Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) gave an overview of his company’s research into Bromodomian and extra-terminal domain (BET) as oncology target for transcriptional suppression of key oncogenes, such as MYC and BCL2. BET inhibition has been defined as strong rational strategy for the treatment of hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. From crystal-structure guided SAR studies, BMS-986158, 2-{3-(1,4-Dimethyl-1H-1,2,3-triazol-5-yl)-5-[(S)-(oxan-4-yl)(phenyl)methyl]-5H-pyrido[3,2-b]indol-7-yl}propan-2-ol, was chosen as a potent BET inhibitor, showing IC50 values for BRD2, BRD3 and BRD4 activity of 1 nM; it also inhibited Myc oncogene (IC50 = 0.5 nM) and induced chlorogenic cancer cell death. In vitro the compound also displayed significant cytotoxicity against cancer cells.  When administered at 0.25, 0.5 and 1 mg/kg po, qd to mice bearing human lung H187 SCLC cancer xenograft, BMS-986158 was robust and showed efficacy as a anticancer agent at low doses. In metabolic studies, it showed t1/2 of 36, 40 and 24 min in human, rat and mice, respectively, and it gave an efflux ratio of 3 in Caco-2 permeability assay. In phase 1/II studies, BMS-986158 was well tolerated at efficacious doses and regimens, and drug tolerable toxicity at efficacy doses and regimens. Selective Itk inhibitors for inflammatory disordersThe development of highly selective Itk inhibitors for the treatment of diseases related to T-cell function, such as inflammatory disorders, was described by Shigeyuki Takai (Ono Pharmaceutical). Inhibitory properties of a hit compound, ONO-8810443, were modified via X-ray structure and Molecular Dynamics stimulation to get ONO-212049 with significant kinase selectivity (140-fold) against Lck, a tyrosine kinase operating upstream of Itk in the TCR cascade. Further modifications identified final lead compound ONO-7790500 (N-[6-[3-amino-6-[2-(3-methoxyazetidin-1-yl)pyridin-4-yl]pyrazin-2-yl]pyridin-3-yl]-1-(3-methoxyphenyl)-2,3-dimethyl-5-oxopyrazole-4-carboxamide), which selectively inhibited Itk (IC50 = < 0.004 microM) over Lck (IC50 = 9.1 microM; SI 2000-fold) and suppressed Jurkat T-cell proliferation (IC50 = 0.014 microM). This compound suppressed alphaCD3/CDP28 CD4+T-cell stimulation (IC50 = 0.074 microM) with selectivity over PMA/Ionomycin (IC50 = > 10 microM). ONO-7790500 also exhibited in vivo IL-2 inhibitory properties (62% inhibition at 30 mg/kg po) in mice. In pharmacokinetic studies in balb/c mice, the compound administered orally (10 mg/kg) showed a Cmax of 1420 ng/ml, AUClast of 11,700 ng*h/ml, t1/2 of 5.3 h and oral bioavailability of 68%. Administration iv at 0.3 mg/kg gave an AUC last of 610 ng*h/ml, t1/2 of 3.8 h, Vss of 1260 ml/kg and Cl of 5.1 ml/min/kg. ADMET data showed ONO-7790500 did not have relevant activity in cytochromes and hERG channels (IC50 > 10 microM) in toxicological studies, and gave a PAMPA value of 5.0 x 10(-6) cm/s. Fused imidazole and pyrazole derivatives as TGF-beta inhibitorsDual growth and differentiation factor-8 (GDF-8; also known as myostatin) and TGF-beta inhibitors were described. Both targets belong to TGF-beta superfamily consisting of a large group of structurally related cell regulatory proteins involved in fundamental biological and pathological processes, such as cell proliferation or immunomodulation. Myostatin (GDF8) is a negative regulator negative regulator of skeletal muscle growth and has also been related to bone metabolism. Investigators at Rigel Pharmaceuticals found that compounds designed to be GDF-8 inhibitors were able to inhibit TGF-beta as well, this could be an advantage for the treatment of diseases associated with muscle and adipose tissue disorders, as well as potentially immunosuppressive disorders. Jiaxin Yu from the company described  new fused imidazole derivatives, of which the best compound was 6-[2-(2,4,5-Trifluorophenyl)-6,7-dihydro-5H-pyrrolo[1,2-a]imidazol-3-yl]quinoxaline. This compound was very potent at TGF-beta Receptor Type-1 (ALK5) inhibition with an IC50 value of 1nM. In an in vivo mouse assay this compound showed good activity at 59.7 mg/kg, po, and good plasma exposure; inhibition of GDF-8 and TGFbeta growth factors was 90 and 81.6 %, respectively.Rigel’s Ihab Darwish described a series of fused pyrazole derivatives, with the best compound being 6-[2-(2,4-Difluorophenyl)-5,6-dihydro-4H-pyrrolo[1,2-b]pyrazol-3-yl][1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]pyridine. This compound showed an IC50 of 0.06 and 0.23 microM for GDF-8 and TGFbeta, respectively, in the pSMAD (MPC-11) signaling inhibition test. The compound had a good pharmacokinetic profile, with 40% of bioavailability in mice after a 5-mg/kg po dose. An iv dose of 1 mg/kg showed t1/2 of 0.7 h and Vss of 1.0 l/h/kgDiscovery of selective inhibitor of IDO BMS-986205 for cancerIndoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO)-1 enzyme initiates and regulates the first step of the kynurenine pathway (KP) of tryptophan metabolism, and evidence has shown that overexpression of IDO-1 in cancer tumors is a crucial mechanism facilitating tumor immune evasion and persistence. The chemical structure and preclinical profile of BMS-986205 was presented by Aaron Balog from BMS. BMS-986205 ((2R)-N-(4-Chlorophenyl)-2-[cis-4-(6-fluoroquinolin-4-yl)cyclohexyl]propanamide),  is a potent IDO-1 inhibitor in phase I for the treatment of cancer. This compound showed potent and selective inhibition of IDO-1 enzyme (IC50 = 1.7nM) and potent growth inhibition in cellular assays (IC50 = 3.4 nM) in SKOV3 cells. The pharmacokinetic profile in rats dosed at 0.5 mg/kg iv and 2 mg/kg po, with clearance, Vss, half-life and bioavailability of 27 ml/min/kg, 3.8 l/kg, 3.9 h and 4%, respectively; in dogs at 0.5 iv and 1.5 po mg/kg dosing results were 25 ml/min/kg, 5.7 l/kg, 4.7 h and 39%; and, in cynomolgus monkeys with the same doses as dogs results were 19 ml/min/kg, 4.1 l/kg, 6.6 h and 10%, respectively. The compound showed good oral exposure and efficacy in in vivo assays.Three further reports have been published from this meeting .The website for this meeting can be found at https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/meetings/spring-2017.html.

Improved methods for the preparation of substituted quinolinycyclohexylpropanamide compounds, such as linrodostat claiming substituted pyridine compounds as IDO1 inhibitors, useful for treating cancers.

Indoleamine 2,3 -di oxygenase (IDO; also known as IDOl) is an IFN-γ target gene that plays a role in immunomodulation. IDO plays a major role in immune regulation, and its immunosuppressive function manifests in several manners. A pathophysiological link exists between IDO and cancer. Disruption of immune homeostasis is intimately involved with tumor growth and progression, and the production of IDO in the tumor microenvironment appears to aid in tumor growth and metastasis. Moreover, increased levels of IDO activity are associated with a variety of different tumors (Brandacher, G. et al, Clin. Cancer Res. , 12(4): 1144-1151 (Feb. 15, 2006)). In addition to cancer, IDO has been implicated in, among other conditions, immunosuppression, chronic infections, and autoimmune diseases or disorders (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis).

Substituted quinolinylcyclohexylpropanamide pharmaceutical compounds that inhibit IDO and are useful for the treatment of cancer have been previously described. See, e.g., WO2016/073770. Improved methods of making such compounds, which reduce production costs and improve production safety, are, therefore, needed.

In March 2015, an IND was filed in China ; in February 2016, approval to conduct a clinical trial was obtained

Guangdong Hec Pharmaceutical is investigating an oral capsule formulation of yinlitinib maleate (DNT-04110), an irreversible pan-ErbB inhibitor, for the potential treatment of solid tumors . In March 2015, an IND was filed in China ; in February 2016, approval to conduct a clinical trial was obtained . In December 2016, a phase I trial was planned in China

Protein kinases (PKs) represent a large family of proteins, which play an important role in the regulation of a wide variety of cellular processes and maintaining control over cellular functions. There are two classes of protein kinases (PKs): the protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) and the serine-threonine kinases (STKs). The protein tyrosine kinase is an enzyme that catalytically transfers the phosphate group from ATP to the tyrosine residue located at the protein substrate, and has a play in the normal cell growth. Many growth factor receptor proteins operate via the tyrosine kinase, and influence the conduction of signal passage and further regulate the cell growth by this process. However, in some circumstances, these receptors become abnormal due to either mutation or overexpression, which cause the uncontrolled cell multiplication, cause the tumor growth, and finally initiate the well-known disease, i.e., cancer. The growth factor receptor protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor, via the inhibition of the above phosphorylation process, may treat cancers and other diseases characterized by the uncontrolled or abnormal cell growth.

Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), a kind of receptor tyrosine kinases, is a multifunction glycoprotein that is widely distributed on the cell membranes of the tissues of the human body, and is an oncogene analog of avian erythroblastic leukemia viral (v-erb-b). Human EGFR/HER1/ErbB-1 and HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor-2)/ErbB-2/Teu/p185, HER3/ErbB-3, HER4/ErbB-4 and the like are grouped into the HER/ErbB family, and belong to protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs). They are single polypeptide chains, and each is encoded respectively by genes located on different chromosomes. EGFR and the like are expressed in the epithelia-derived tumors such as squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck, mammary cancer, rectal cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate carcinoma, non-small cell lung cancer, and the like, which are associated with cell proliferation, metastasis, and the like. Pan-HER tyrosine kinase inhibitor, via the competitive binding to the kinase catalytic sites in the intracellular region against ATP, blocks the autophosphorylation of intramolecular tyrosine, blocks the tyrosine kinase activation, inhibits HER-2 family activation, and therefore inhibits cell cycle progression, accelerates cell apoptosis, and exerts the therapeutic action.

EGFR, after binding to the ligand, forms a dimer with a subgroup of HER family, and then combines with ATP to activate the tyrosine kinase activity of the EGFR itself. Therefore, the autophosphorylation occurs in several tyrosine sites of the intracellular kinase region. Pan-HER tyrosine kinase inhibitor, via simultaneity acting on EGFR and HER2/4, inhibits the activation of HER family, and plays a good role in the tumor growth inhibition.

It is indicated in the study that Pan-HER tyrosine kinase irreversible inhibitor has an inhibition effect on HER2/4, besides it effectively inhibits EGFR. The pharmaceutical drugs of this kind, having an irreversible inhibition to both of HER/ErbB families, not only increase the drug activity, but also reduce the drug resistance, and have a substantial inhibition effect on H1975 cell lines which are resistant to erlotinib.

The pharmaceutical drugs that are now commercially available include selective EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor gefitinb (IRESSA®, ZD1839), erlotinib (TARCEVA®, OSI-774), double EGFR/HER2 inhibitor Lapatinib (TYKERB®, GW572016), and the like. These three drugs are all reversible EGF receptor tyrosine phosphorylation kinase inhibitor. It has been found in the study that they have good therapeutic response to some tumors initially. However, several months after the treatment, the disease progression appears again and therefore a natural or secondary drug resistance forms. For example, about half of the patients administered with gefitinib or erlotinib develop resistance to gefitinib or erlotinib, which can not lead to the desired therapeutic effect. And it has been indicated by study that the development of drug resistance to selective EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor relates to mutations in EGFR.

The mutations of EGFR gene mostly located in the tyrosing kinase coding domain (TK, exons 18-21) are mainly deletion mutation in exon 19 and point mutation in exon 21, both of which are drug-sensitive, and few are point mutation in exon 18 and insertion mutation in exon 20. T790M mutation recognized as one of the mechanism of drug resistance is a point mutation in exon 20 of EGFR. The presence of a second-site EGFR mutation leads to the substitution of methionine for threonine at position 790 (T790M) and changes in the structure of EGFR, which hinder the binding of EGFR inhibitors to EGFR or greatly increase the affinity between EGFR and ATP, so that ATP affinity back to the level of wild-type EGFR, thus resulting in drug resistance. Further studies shows that the pre-treatment tumor samples with mutations of EGFR contain T790M mutation, which indicates that T790M mutation is not just associated with drug resistance and it may have the carcinogenic potential itself.

Irreversible inhibitor can bind to EGFR tyrosine kinase by covalent bond. Thus, the drugs can act on the entire link of epidermal growth factor signal transduction pathway, and improve efficiency of drug blocking. Many clinical studies show that some irreversible inhibitors in current development can against T790M mutation, and overcome the drug resistance caused by T790M. Meanwhile, listed drug Afatinib (BIBW 2992) and some irreversible inhibitors in clinical development (e.g., Dacomitinib, PF00299804, etc.), can inhibit multiple members of EGFR receptor family, especially to the role of EGFR and HER-2, possibly by blocking collaborative signal pathway activated by homodimer and heterodimer to enhance inhibitory effect (Oncologist, 2009, 14 (11): 1116-1130).

Upon developing the drug having an excellent antineoplastic effect, being able to reduce the drug resistance and having a good tolerance, the present inventors discover a quinazoline derivatives as tyrosine kinase inhibitors having a Pan-HER irreversible inhibition function.

6-Chloro-5-[4-(1-hydroxycyclobutyl)phenyl]-1H-indole-3-carboxylic acid

CAS Number 1467057-23-3,  C19H16ClNO3, 341.79

Biochem/physiol Actions

PF-06409577 is a potent and selective activator of 5′ adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK).

PF-06409577 potently activates a1β1γ1 AMPK (5′ adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase) isoform, and prevents its dephosphorylation. It is similarly potent for β1 containing isoforms, but shows significantly lower potency for β2-containing isoforms of AMPK. Patch-clamp assays show that this compound does not inhibit hERG (human ether-a-go-go gene). It interacts with the allosteric drug and metabolite site (ADaM) of AMPK.

General description

PF-06409577 is a 6-chloro-indole derivative obtained from 5-bromo-6-chloro-indole.

PF-06409577 is a potent and selective activator of 5′ adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) for the Potential Treatment of diabetic nephropathy. PF-06409577 has AMPK α1β1γ1 Kd=9.0 nM. AMPK α1β1γ1 EC50 = 7.0 nM; AMPK α1β2γ1 EC50 > 40000 nM. PF-06409577 showed efficacy in a preclinical model of diabetic nephropathy. Upon the basis of its potent and selective AMPK activation, low metabolic turnover in human hepatocytes, clean off-target profile, and favorable preclinical in vivo efficacy results, PF-06409577 was profiled in regulatory toxicology studies and was subsequently advanced to clinical trials to assess human pharmacokinetics and safety/ tolerability.

Diabetes is a major public health concern because of its increasing prevalence and associated health risks. The disease is characterized by high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. Two major forms of diabetes are recognized, type I and type II. Type I diabetes develops when the body’s immune system destroys pancreatic beta cells, the only cells in the body that make the hormone insulin that regulates blood glucose. To survive, people with type 1 diabetes must have insulin delivered by injection or a pump. Type II diabetes accounts for about 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. Type II diabetes usually begins as insulin resistance, a disorder in which the cells do not use insulin properly. Key target tissues, including liver, muscle, and adipose tissue, are resistant to the effects of insulin in stimulating glucose and lipid metabolism. As the need for insulin rises, the pancreas gradually loses its ability to produce insulin. Controlling type II diabetes with medication is essential; otherwise it can progress into pancreatic beta-cell failure requiring complete dependence on insulin.

Obesity increases the risk of type II diabetes as well as many other health conditions including coronary heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. More than one-third of U.S. adults (over 72 million people) and 17% of U.S. children are obese. During 1980-2008, obesity rates doubled for adults and tripled for children. During the past several decades, obesity rates for all population groups— regardless of age, sex, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, education level, or geographic region— have increased markedly.

Research has identified the enzyme 5′ adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) as a regulator of cellular and whole-body energy homeostasis. AMPK is activated by cellular stress resulting in downstream events that serve to conserve or generate ATP. AMPK is composed of three distinct subunits, each with multiple isoforms: the alpha subunit (alpha 1 or 2); the beta subunit (beta 1 or 2); and the gamma subunit (gamma 1, 2, or 3); for a total of twelve possible heterotrimeric isoforms.

In the liver, activated AMPK phosphorylates a variety of substrates including 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase (Clarke, P.R. & Hardie, D.G., EMBO J 9, 2439-2446 (1990)) and acetyl-CoA carboxylase (Carling, D. et al. FEBS Letters 223, 217-222 (1987)) which inhibits cholesterol biosynthesis and decreases fatty acid synthesis, respectively. Therefore, activation of AMPK should lead to decreases in the levels of triglycerides and cholesterol. AMPK is also thought to regulate plasma glucose levels by decreasing hepatic gluconeogenesis through downregulation of key gene products following phosphorylation of CRTC2 (Koo S.H. et. AL, Nature 437, 1109-1111 (2005)). In muscle and myocardial tissues, AMPK activates the transport activity of glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) increasing glucose uptake into cells thereby producing an additional avenue for decreasing plasma glucose (Kurth-Kraczek, E.J. et. al., Diabetes 48, 1667-1671 (1999)). AMPK activation has also been shown to enhance mitochondrial biogenesis improving fatty acid oxidation and decreasing circulating lipids (Merrill, G.M. et. al., Am. J. Physiol. 273, E1107-E1112 (1997)). Direct activation of AMPK using AICAR (5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide riboside) has been shown to lead to beneficial effects on several metabolic endpoints including improved glucose disposal, decreased hepatic glucose output and decreases in plasma triglycerides and free fatty acids (Song, X.M. et. al., Diabetologia 45, 56-65 (2002); Bergeron, R. et. al., Diabetes 50, 1076-1082 (2001); Buhl, E.S.et. al., Diabetes 50, 12-17 (2001); Iglesias, M.A. et. al., Diabetes 51, 2886-2894 (2002), Fogarty, S. & Hardie, D.G., Biochim et Biophys Acta 1804, 581-591 (2010)). Because of AMPK’s pluripotent effects on carbohydrate, lipid, and cholesterol metabolism and biosynthesis, agents that activate AMPK are attractive therapeutic targets for treating metabolic syndrome disorders such as diabetes, obesity, and dyslipidemia.

Decreases in renal AMPK activation have been implicated in the etiology of diseases of the kidney, including diabetic nephropathy, acute kidney injury (AKI), and polycystic kidney disease (PKD); activation of AMPK through hormonal (adiponectin) or pharmacological (AICAR) mechanisms has been shown to be protective in rodent models of these diseases. In diabetic nephropathy decreased AMPK activation in podocytes occurs early in the disease and is associated with increased expression of the NADPH-Oxidase protein Nox4 and increased proteinuria. These effects were reduced following administration of the AMPK activators AICAR, metformin, and Adiponectin (Lee, MJ. et.al. American Journal of Physiology – Renal Physiology. 292.

F617-F627 (2007); Sharma, K. et.al. Journal of Clinical Investigation.118. 1645-1656. (2008)). In ischemia/reperfusion models of AKI the AMPK activators metformin and AICAR were shown to dose-dependently reduce subsequent proteinuria, oxidative tissue damage, and kidney macrophage infiltration (Lempiainen, J. et.al. British Journal of Pharmacology 166. 1905-1915 (2012); Seo-Mayer, P.W. et.al. American Journal of Physiology – Renal Physiology, 301, F1346-F1357 (2011)). In two rodent models of PKD the AMPK activator metformin was shown to reduce renal cyst expansion (Takiar, V. et. al. PNAS 108, 2462-2467 (2011)). These studies suggest a broad benefit of AMPK activators in multiple renal diseases.

The compounds of the present invention activate AMPK and are, therefore, useful in treating metabolic disorders such as diabetes, obesity, and dyslipidemia as well as the renal diseases chronic kidney disease, diabetic nephropathy, acute kidney injury and polycystic kidney disease.

Abstract Image

Adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a protein kinase involved in maintaining energy homeostasis within cells. On the basis of human genetic association data, AMPK activators were pursued for the treatment of diabetic nephropathy. Identification of an indazole amide high throughput screening (HTS) hit followed by truncation to its minimal pharmacophore provided an indazole acid lead compound. Optimization of the core and aryl appendage improved oral absorption and culminated in the identification of indole acid, PF-06409577 (7). Compound 7 was advanced to first-in-human trials for the treatment of diabetic nephropathy.

Abstract Image

Indole acids 12, and 3 are potent 5′-adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activators for the potential treatment of diabetic nephropathy. Compounds 13 were scaled to supply material for preclinical studies, and indole 3 was selected for advancement to first-in-human clinical trials and scaled to kilogram quantities. The progression of the synthesis strategy for these AMPK activators is described, as routes were selected for efficient structure–activity relationship generation and then improved for larger scales. The developed sequences employed practical isolations of intermediates and APIs, reproducible cross-coupling, hydrolysis, and other transformations, and enhanced safety and purity profiles and led to the production of 40–50 g of 1and 2 and 2.4 kg of 3. Multiple polymorphs of 3 were observed, and conditions for the reproducible formation of crystalline material suitable for clinical development were identified.

Target: β-lactamase enzymes, enzymes that inactivate β-lactam-based antibiotics enabling bacteria to resist their attacks

Disease: Gram-negative bacterial infections

Reporter’s notes: Another story with humble beginnings, this time with Burns and two colleagues sitting in a Panera Bread, with an idea. They wanted to offer a new compound in the class of β-lactam antibiotics, drugs which are “well-liked” by doctors, Burns said, and make up 60% of all antibiotic prescriptions. However, bacteria have developed defenses against these compounds in the form of β-lactamases, or as Burns dubbed them, “PAC-men.” These enzymes can chew up 1000 β-lactams per second, he said. VNRX-5133 was active against both serine-β-lactamases and metallo-β-lactamases in enzyme assays. It is being developed in combination with the antibiotic cefepime. VNRX-5133 fends off the PAC-men’s attacks, allowing cefepime to combat infection. The compound has gone through Phase I clinical trials and will be skipping ahead to Phase III later this year.

Antibiotics are the most effective drugs for curing bacteria-infectious diseases clinically. They have a wide market due to their advantages of good antibacterial effect with limited side effects. Among them, the beta-lactam class of antibiotics (for example, penicillins,

cephalosporins, and carbapenems) are widely used because they have a strong bactericidal effect and low toxicity.

[0004] To counter the efficacy of the various beta-lactams, bacteria have evolved to produce variants of beta-lactam deactivating enzymes called beta-lactamases, and in the ability to share this tool inter- and intra-species. These beta-lactamases are categorized as “serine” or “metallo” based, respectively, on presence of a key serine or zinc in the enzyme active site. The rapid spread of this mechanism of bacterial resistance can severely limit beta-lactam treatment options in the hospital and in the community.

GDC-0575, also known as ARRY-575 and RG7741, is a potent and selective CHK1 inhibitor.

GDC-0575 is a highly selective small-molecule Chk-1 inhibitor invented by Array and licensed to Genentech.  Genentech is responsible for all clinical development and commercialization activities. Array received an upfront payment of $28 million and is eligible to receive clinical and commercial milestone payments up to $380 million and up to double-digit royalties on sales.

Chk-1 is a protein kinase that regulates the tumor cell’s response to DNA damage often caused by treatment with chemotherapy. In response to DNA damage, Chk-1 blocks cell cycle progression in order to allow for repair of damaged DNA, thereby limiting the efficacy of chemotherapeutic agents. Inhibiting Chk-1 in combination with chemotherapy can enhance tumor cell death by preventing these cells from recovering from DNA damage. GDC‑0575 is designed to enhance the efficacy of some chemotherapeutic agents.  GDC-0575 is currently advancing in a Phase 1 trial in patients with lymphoma or solid tumors.

Abstract Image

We report an efficient and highly regiocontrolled route to prepare a functionalized 7-azaindole derivative—5-bromo-4-chloro-3-nitro-7-azaindole—from readily available parent 7-azaindole featuring a highly regioselective bromination of the 4-chloro-3-nitro-7-azaindole intermediate. In addition to the high efficiency and excellent control of regioisomeric impurities, the process is operationally simple by isolating each product via direct crystallization from the reaction mixture with no liquid–liquid extractions or distillation steps needed. We demonstrated the route on >50 kg scale and 46% overall yield to provide the target product in 97% purity by HPLC, which can serve as a useful building block for the preparation of a series of 3,4,5-substituted-7-azaindole derivatives.

[0096] Step 1 : Preparation of (i?)-5-bromo-4-(3-(/ert-butoxycarbonylamino)piperidin-l-yl)-3-nitro-lH-pyrrolo[2,3-6]pyridine:

[0097] To an inerted 10 L jacket reactor, equipped with a mechanic stirrer, a nitrogen/vacuum manifold, a thermocouple, and a condenser, were charged 2-methyl-2-butanol (3.30 L), 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-nitro-lH-pyrrolo[2,3-6]pyridine (330 g, 1.00 equiv), (R)-tert-butyl piperidin-3-ylcarbamate (456 g, 2.00 equiv), and N-methylmorpholine (115 g, 1.00 equiv). The reaction mixture was stirred at 85 °C for 48 h and cooled to 20 °C. The mixture was then washed with 15 wt % citric acid aqueous solution (3.30 kg) and water (3.30 kg). The majority of 2-methyl-2-butanol was distilled off under vacuum at 50 °C. Acetonitrile was added to bring the mixture back to its original volume. Continuous distillation was conducted until a total of 10.3 kg of acetonitrile was added. Water (3.20 kg) was slowly charged to the suspension over approximately 1 h at 55 °C. The slurry was slowly cooled to 20 °C over 4 h. The resulting solid was collected by filtration and washed with a 1 : 1 (v/v) mixture of acetonitrile and water (1.60 L). The product was dried in a vacuum oven under nitrogen at 70 °C to provide 358 g (69% yield) of (i?)-5-bromo-4-(3-(ter/-butoxycarbonylamino)piperidin-l-yl)-3-nitro-lH-pyrrolo[2,3-6]pyridine as a yellow solid. !H NMR (600 MHz, DMSO-i/6): δ 13.12 (s, 1H), 8.60 (s, 1H), 8.39 (s, 1H), 6.80 (d, J= 6.8 Hz, 1H), 3.49 (m, 1H), 3.34 (m, 2H), 3.22 (t, J = 11.2 Hz, 1H), 3.00 (t, J = 10.2 Hz, 1H), 1.88 (dd, J = 12.3, 2.8 Hz, 1H), 1.74 (m, 2H), 1.38 (m, 1H), 1.34 (s, 9H). 13C NMR (150 MHz, DMSO-<¾): δ 154.8, 148.9, 148.2, 147.9, 130.6, 128.5, 113.8, 109.6, 77.6, 54.7, 48.9, 47.3, 30.0, 28.1 (3C), 24.2.

The reaction mixture was stirred at 50 °C at 5 bar of hydrogen for a minimum of 2 h. Cyclopropanecarbonyl chloride (26.7 g, 1.50 equiv) was charged into the reactor over 10 min at 15 °C. The reaction mixture was stirred at 25 °C for 1 h and filtered through Celite. The cake was washed with 2-MeTHF (150 mL). The filtrate was washed with 15 wt % aqueous ammonium chloride solution (450 mL) and water (450 mL) and then distilled in vacuo to 1/3 of it’s original volume. Toluene was added to bring the solution back to its original volume. Continuous vacuum distillation was conducted at 55 °C while adding toluene until the 2-MeTHF was below 2 wt %. The resulting solid was isolated by filtration, washed with toluene and dried in a vacuum oven at 40 °C overnight to give 69.8 g (69% corrected yield) of (i?)-5-bromo-4-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)piperidin-l-yl)-3-(cyclopropanecarboxamido)-lH-pyrrolo[2,3-6]pyridine (1 :1 toluene solvate) as an off-white solid. 1H NMR (600 MHz, THF-i 8, 4 °C): δ 10.76 (s, 1H), 9.72 (s, 1H), 8.15 (s, 1H), 7.90 (d, J = 2.4 Hz, 1H), 7.18-7.08 (m, 5H), 6.41 (d, J = 7.8 Hz, 1H), 3.82 (m, 1H), 3.60 (m, 1H), 3.44 (t, J = 10.6 Hz, 1H), 3.30 (dd, J= 10.6, 3.9 Hz, 1H), 3.03 (d, J = 10.9 Hz, 1H), 2.29 (s, 3H), 2.08 (m, 1H), 1.89 (m, 2H), 1.66 (m, 1H), 1.37 (s, 9H), 1.36 (m, 1H), 0.95-0.80 (m, 4H). 13C NMR (150 MHz, THF-ci8, 4 °C): δ 170.0, 155.8, 149.0, 147.8, 147.6, 138.4, 129.6 (2C), 128.9 (2C), 126.0, 116.6, 115.6, 111.9, 108.8, 78.5, 55.8, 50.2, 49.1, 31.8, 28.6 (3C), 26.3, 21.5, 15.8, 7.70, 7.56.

The resulting solution was stirred at 20° C. for 5 min. Water (22.0 mL) was added. Continuous distillation was conducted at 50° C. by adjusting the feed rate of ethanol to match the distillation rate until a total of 260 mL of ethanol was added. Water (340 mL) was added at 50° C. over 1 h. The resulting solid was isolated by filtration, washed with 20% ethanol in water (2×60 mL) and dried in a vacuum oven at 50° C. overnight to give 16.4 g (78% corrected yield) of (R)-5-bromo-4-(3-amino)piperidin-1-yl)-3-(cyclopropanecarboxamido)-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine as a light yellow solid.

Alternatively, the compound (R)-5-bromo-4-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)piperidin-1-yl)-3-(cyclopropanecarboxamido)-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine can be prepared from 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-nitro-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine and (R)-tert-butyl piperidin-3-ylcarbamate via a through process without isolating (R)-5-bromo-4-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)piperidin-1-yl)-3-nitro-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine. The changes to existing procedure are shown as below: The solution of (R)-5-bromo-4-(3-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)piperidin-1-yl)-3-nitro-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine was hydrogenated directly in 2-methyl-2-butanol after aqueous washes with 15 wt % citric acid aqueous solution (10.0 g/g) and water (10.0 g/g). The solution concentration in 2-methyl-2-butanol was determined by HPLC weight assay.

Abstract

Abstract Image

We report an efficient route to prepare Chk1 kinase inhibitor GDC-0575 from 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-nitro-7-azaindole featuring a sequence of nucleophilic aromatic substitution, hydrogenative nitro-reduction, and a robust, high-yielding end-game involving deprotection–crystallization steps. The developed route was demonstrated on 10 kg scale in 30% overall yield to provide the target API in >99.8 A % HPLC purity.
