Description
  • [0001]
    The present invention relates to substituted 2-(2,6-dioxopiperidin-3-yl)-phthalimides and substituted 2-(2,6-dioxopiperidin-3-yl)-1-oxoisoindolines, the method of reducing levels of tumor necrosis factor α and treating inflammatory and autoimmune diseases in a mammal through the administration thereof, and to pharmaceutical compositions of such derivatives.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    Tumor necrosis factor α, or TNFα, is a cytokine which is released primarily by mononuclear phagocytes in response to a number immunostimulators. When administered to animals or humans, it causes inflammation, fever, cardiovascular effects, hemorrhage, coagulation, and acute phase responses similar to those seen during acute infections and shock states. Excessive or unregulated TNFα production thus has been implicated in a number of disease conditions. These include endotoxemia and/or toxic shock syndrome {Tracey et al., Nature 330, 662-664 (1987) and Hinshaw et al., Circ Shock 30, 279-292 (1990),; cachexia {Dezube et al., Lancet. 335 (8690), 662 (1990), and Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome where TNFα concentration in excess of 12,000 pg/mL have been detected in pulmonary aspirates from ARDS patients {Millar et al., Lancet 2(8665). 712-714 (1989)}. Systemic infusion of recombinant TNFα also resulted in changes typically seen in ARDS {Ferrai-Baliviera et al., Arch. Surg. 124(12), 1400-1405 (1989)}.
  • [0003]
    TNFα appears to be involved in bone resorption diseases, including arthritis. When activated, leukocytes will produce bone-resorption, an activity to which the data suggest TNFα contributes. {Bertolini et al., Nature 319, 516-518 (1986) and Johnson et al., Endocrinology 124(3), 1424-1427 (1989).} TNFα also has been shown to stimulate bone resorption and inhibit bone formation in vitro and in vivo through stimulation of osteoclast formation and activation combined with inhibition of osteoblast function. Although TNFα may be involved in many bone resorption diseases, including arthritis, the most compelling link with disease is the association between production of TNFα by tumor or host tissues and malignancy associated hypercalcemia {Calci. Tissue Int. (US) 46(Suppl.), S3-10 (1990)}. In Graft versus Host Reaction, increased serum TNFα levels have been associated with major complication following acute allogenic bone marrow transplants {Holler et al., Blood, 75(4), 1011-1016 (1990)}.
  • [0004]
    Cerebral malaria is a lethal hyperacute neurological syndrome associated with high blood levels of TNFα and the most severe complication occurring in malaria patients. Levels of serum TNFα correlated directly with the severity of disease and the prognosis in patients with acute malaria attacks {Grau et al., N. Engl. J. Med. 320(24), 1586-1591 (1989)}.
  • [0005]
    Macrophage-induced angiogenesis is known to be mediated by TNFα. Leibovich et al. {Nature, 329, 630-632 (1987)} showed TNFα induces in vivo capillary blood vessel formation in the rat cornea and the developing chick chorioallantoic membranes at very low doses and suggest TNFα is a candidate for inducing angiogenesis in inflammation, wound repair, and tumor growth. TNFα production also has been associated with cancerous conditions, particularly induced tumors {Ching et al., Brit. J. Cancer, (1955) 72, 339-343, and Koch, Progress in Medicinal Chemistry, 22 166-242 (1985)}.
  • [0006]
    TNFα also plays a role in the area of chronic pulmonary inflammatory diseases. The deposition of silica particles leads to silicosis, a disease of progressive respiratory failure caused by a fibrotic reaction. Antibody to TNFα completely blocked the silica-induced lung fibrosis in mice {Pignet et al., Nature, 344:245-247 (1990)}. High levels of TNFα production (in the serum and in isolated macrophages) have been demonstrated in animal models of silica and asbestos induced fibrosis {Bissonnette et al., Inflammation 13(3), 329-339 (1989)}. Alveolar macrophages from pulmonary sarcoidosis patients have also been found to spontaneously release massive quantities of TNFα as compared with macrophages from normal donors {Baughman et al., J. Lab. Clin. Med. 115(1), 36-42 (1990)}.
  • [0007]
    TNFα is also implicated in the inflammatory response which follows reperfusion, called reperfusion injury, and is a major cause of tissue damage after loss of blood flow {Vedder et al., PNAS 87, 2643-2646 (1990)). TNFα also alters the properties of endothelial cells and has various pro-coagulant activities, such as producing an increase in tissue factor pro-coagulant activity and suppression of the anticoagulant protein C pathway as well as down-regulating the expression of thrombomodulin {Sherry et al., J. Cell Biol. 107, 1269-1277 (1988)}. TNFα has pro-inflammatory activities which together with its early production (during the initial stage of an inflammatory event) make it a likely mediator of tissue injury in several important disorders including but not limited to, myocardial infarction, stroke and circulatory shock. Of specific importance may be TNFα-induced expression of adhesion molecules, such as intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM) or endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule (ELAM) on endothelial cells {Munro et al., Am. J. Path. 135(1), 121-1332 (1989)}.
  • [0008]
    TNFα blockage with monoclonal anti-TNFα antibodies has been shown to be beneficial in rheumatoid arthritis {Elliot et al., Int. J. Pharmac. 1995 17(2), 141-145} and Crohn's disease {von Dullemen et al., Gastroenterology, 1995 109(1), 129-135}
  • [0009]
    Moreover, it now is known that TNFα is a potent activator of retrovirus replication including activation of HIV-1. {Duh et al., Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. 86, 5974-5978 (1989); Poll et al., Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. 87, 782-785 (1990); Monto et al., Blood 79, 2670 (1990); Clouse et al., J. Immunol. 142, 431-438 (1989); Poll et al., AIDS Res. Hum. Retrovirus, 191-197 (1992)}. AIDS results from the infection of T lymphocytes with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). At least three types or strains of HIV have been identified. i.e., HIV-1, HIV-2 and HIV-3. As a consequence of HIV infection. T-cell mediated immunity is impaired and infected individuals manifest severe opportunistic infections and/or unusual neoplasms. HIV entry into the T lymphocyte requires T lymphocyte activation. Other viruses, such as HIV-1. HIV-2 infect T lymphocytes after T cell activation and such virus protein expression and/or replication is mediated or maintained by such T cell activation. Once an activated T lymphocyte is infected with HIV, the T lymphocyte must continue to be maintained in an activated state to permit HIV gene expression and/or HIV replication. Cytokines, specifically TNFα, are implicated in activated T-cell mediated HIV protein expression and/or virus replication by playing a role in maintaining T lymphocyte activation. Therefore, interference with cytokine activity such as by prevention or inhibition of cytokine production, notably TNFα, in an HIV-infected individual assists in limiting the maintenance of T lymphocyte caused by HIV infection.
  • [0010]
    Monocytes, macrophages, and related cells, such as kupffer and glial cells, also have been implicated in maintenance of the HIV infection. These cells, like T cells, are targets for viral replication and the level of viral replication is dependent upon the activation state of the cells. {Rosenberg et al., The Immunopathogenesis of HIV Infection, Advances in Immunology, 57 (1989)}. Cytokines, such as TNFα, have been shown to activate HIV replication in monocytes and/or macrophages {Poli et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., 87, 782-784 (1990)}, therefore, prevention or inhibition of cytokine production or activity aids in limiting HIV progression for T cells. Additional studies have identified TNFα as a common factor in the activation of HIV in vitro and has provided a clear mechanism of action via a nuclear regulatory protein found in the cytoplasm of cells (Osborn, et al., PNAS 86 2336-2340). This evidence suggests that a reduction of TNFα synthesis may have an antiviral effect in HIV infections, by reducing the transcription and thus virus production.
  • [0011]
    AIDS viral replication of latent HIV in T cell and macrophage lines can be induced by TNFα {Folks et al., PNAS 86, 2365-2368 (1989)}. A molecular mechanism for the virus inducing activity is suggested by TNFα's ability to activate a gene regulatory protein (NFκB) found in the cytoplasm of cells, which promotes HIV replication through binding to a viral regulatory gene sequence (LTR) {Osborn et al., PNAS 86, 2336-2340 (1989)}. TNFα in AIDS associated cachexia is suggested by elevated serum TNFα and high levels of spontaneous TNFα production in peripheral blood monocytes from patients {Wright et al., J. Immunol. 141(1), 99-104 (1988)}. TNFα has been implicated in various roles with other viral infections, such as the cytomegalia virus (CMV), influenza virus, adenovirus, and the herpes family of viruses for similar reasons as those noted.
  • [0012]
    The nuclear factor κB (NFκB) is a pleiotropic transcriptional activator (Lenardo, et al, Cell 1989, 58, 227-29). NFκB has been implicated as a transcriptional activator in a variety of disease and inflammatory states and is thought to regulate cytokine levels including but not limited to TNFα and also to be an activator of HIV transcription (Dbaibo, et al., J. Biol. Chem. 1993, 17762-66; Duh et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. 1989, 86, 5974-78; Bachelerie at al., Nature 1991, 350, 709-12; Boswas et aL, J. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome 1993, 6, 778-786; Suzuki et al., Biochem. And Biophys. Res. Comm. 1993, 193, 277-83; Suzuki et al., Biochem. And Biophys. Res Comm. 1992, 189, 1709-15; Suzuki et al., Biochem. Mol. Bio. Int. 1993, 31(4), 693-700; Shakhov et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 1990, 171, 35-47; and Staal et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 1990, 87, 9943-47). Thus, inhibition of NFκB binding can regulate transcription of cytokine gene(s) and through this modulation and other mechanisms be useful in the inhibition of a multitude of disease states. The compounds described herein can inhibit the action of NFκB in the nucleus and thus are useful in the treatment of a variety of diseases including but not limited to rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatoid spondylitis, osteoarthritis, other arthritic conditions, septic shock, septis, endotoxic shock, graft versus host disease, wasting, Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythrematosis, ENL in leprosy, HIV, AIDS, and opportunistic infections in AIDS. TNFα and NFκB levels are influenced by a reciprocal feedback loop. As noted above, the compounds of the present invention affect the levels of both TNFα and NFκB.
  • [0013]
    Many cellular functions are mediated by levels of adenosine 3′,5′-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP). Such cellular functions can contribute to inflammatory conditions and diseases including asthma, inflammation, and other conditions (Lowe and Cheng, Drugs of the Future, 17(9), 799-807, 1992). It has been shown that the elevation of cAMP in inflammatory leukocytes inhibits their activation and the subsequent release of inflammatory mediators, including TNFα and NFκB. Increased levels of cAMP also leads to the relaxation of airway smooth muscle.
  • [0014]
    Decreasing TNFα levels and/or increasing cAMP levels thus constitutes a valuable therapeutic strategy for the treatment of many inflammatory, infectious, immunological or malignant diseases. These include but are not restricted to septic shock, sepsis, endotoxic shock, hemodynamic shock and sepsis syndrome, post ischemic reperfusion injury, malaria, mycobacterial infection, meningitis, psoriasis, congestive heart failure, fibrotic disease, cachexia, graft rejection, cancer, autoimmune disease, opportunistic infections in AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatoid spondylitis, osteoarthritis, other arthritic conditions, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythrematosis. ENL in leprosy, radiation damage, and hyperoxic alveolar injury. Prior efforts directed to the suppression of the effects of TNFα have ranged from the utilization of steroids such as dexamethasone and prednisolone to the use of both polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies {Beutler et al., Science 234, 470-474 (1985); WO 92/11383}.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • [0015]
    The present invention is based on the discovery that certain classes of non-polypeptide compounds more fully described herein decrease the levels of TNFα.
  • [0016]
    In particular, the invention pertains to compounds of the formula:
  • [0017]
    in which:
  • [0018]
    one of X and Y is C═O and the other of X and Y is C═O or CH2;
  • [0019]
    (i) each of R1, R2, R3, and R4, independently of the others, is halo, alkyl of 1 to 4 carbon atoms, or alkoxy of 1 to 4 carbon atoms or (ii) one of R1, R2, R3, and R4 is
  • [0020]
    —NHR and the remaining of R1, R2, R3, and R4 are hydrogen;
  • [0021]
    R5 is hydrogen or alkyl of 1 to 8 carbon atoms;
  • [0022]
    R6 is hydrogen, alkyl of 1 to 8 carbon atoms, benzo, chloro, or fluoro;
  • [0023]
    R7 is m-phenylene or p-phenylene or —(CnH2n)— in which n has a value of 0 to 4;
  • [0024]
    each of R8 and R9 taken independently of the other is hydrogen or alkyl of 1 to 8 carbon atoms, or R8 and R9 taken together are tetramethylene, pentamethylene, hexamethylene, or —CH2CH2XCH2CH2— in which X is —O—, —S— or —NH—;

    R10 is hydrogen, alkyl of 1 to 8 carbon atoms, or phenyl; and
  • [0026]
    (b) the acid addition salts of said compounds which contain a nitrogen atom capable of being protonated.
  • [0027]
    A first preferred group of compounds are those of Formula I in which at least one of of R1, R2, R3, R4, and R6 is other than hydrogen. Among these, a preferred group are those compounds in which each of R1, R2, R3, and R4, independently of the others, is halo, alkyl of 1 to 4 carbon atoms, or alkoxy of 1 to 4 carbon atoms; R6 is hydrogen, methyl, ethyl, or propyl; ; each of R8 and R9 taken independently of the other is hydrogen or methyl; and R10 is hydrogen. Of these compounds, a preferred subgroup are those compounds in which R7 is m-phenylene or p-phenylene while a second preferred subgroup are those compounds in which R7—(CnH2n)— in which n has a value of 0 to 4.
  • [0028]
    A further preferred group of compounds are those of Formula I in which one of R1, R2, R3, and R4 is —NH2 and the remaining of R1, R2, R3, and R4 are hydrogen; R6 is hydrogen, methyl, ethyl, or propyl; each of R8 and R9 taken independently of the other is hydrogen or methyl; and R10 is hydrogen. Of these compounds, a first preferred subgroup are those compounds in which R7 is m-phenylene or p-phenylene while a second preferred subgroup are those compounds in which R7—(CnH2n)— in which n has a value of 0 to 4.
  • [0029]
    The term alkyl denotes a univalent saturated branched or straight hydrocarbon chain containing from 1 to 8 carbon atoms. Representative of such alkyl groups are methyl, ethyl, propyl, isopropyl, butyl, isobutyl, sec-butyl, and tert-butyl. Alkoxy refers to an alkyl group bound to the remainder of the molecule through an ethereal oxygen atom. Representative of such alkoxy groups are methoxy, ethoxy, propoxy, isopropoxy, butoxy, isobutoxy, sec-butoxy, and tert-butoxy. Preferably R1, R2, R3, and R4 are chloro, fluoro, methyl or methoxy.
  • [0030]
    The compounds of Formula I are used, under the supervision of qualified professionals, to inhibit the undesirable effects of TNFα. The compounds can be administered orally, rectally, or parenterally, alone or in combination with other therapeutic agents including antibiotics, steroids, etc., to a mammal in need of treatment.
  • [0031]
    The compounds of the present invention also can be used topically in the treatment or prophylaxis of topical disease states mediated or exacerbated by excessive TNFα production, respectively, such as viral infections, such as those caused by the herpes viruses, or viral conjunctivitis, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, etc.
  • [0032]
    The compounds also can be used in the veterinary treatment of mammals other than humans in need of prevention or inhibition of TNFα production. TNFα mediated diseases for treatment, therapeutically or prophylactically, in animals include disease states such as those noted above, but in particular viral infections. Examples include feline immunodeficiency virus, equine infectious anaemia virus, caprine arthritis virus, visna virus, and maedi virus, as well as other lentiviruses.
  • [0033]
    The compounds can be prepared through an initial reaction of formaldehyde with an intermediate of the formula:
  • [0034]
    in which X and Y are as defined above;
  • [0035]
    each of R1, R2, R3, and R4, independently of the others, is halo, alkyl of 1 to 4 carbon atoms, or alkoxy of 1 to 4 carbon atoms or (ii) one of R1, R2, R3, and R4 is nitro or protected amino and the remaining of R1, R2, R3, and R4 are hydrogen; and
  • [0036]
    R6 is hydrogen, alkyl of 1 to 8 carbon atoms, benzo, chloro, or fluoro.
  • [0037]
    The resulting N-hydroxymethyl intermediate of Formula II then is coupled with a carboxylic acid derivative of Formula IV using methods which are known in general:
  • [0038]
    in which Hal is a reactive halogen such as chloro, bromo, or iodo.
  • [0039]
    Protecting groups utilized herein denote groups which generally are not found in the final therapeutic compounds but which are intentionally introduced at some stage of the synthesis in order to protect groups which otherwise might be altered in the course of chemical manipulations. Such protecting groups are removed at a later stage of the synthesis and compounds bearing such protecting groups thus are of importance primarily as chemical intermediates (although some derivatives also exhibit biological activity). Accordingly the precise structure of the protecting group is not critical. Numerous reactions for the formation and removal of such protecting groups are described in a number of standard works including, for example, “Protective Groups in Organic Chemistry”, Plenum Press, London and New York, 1973; Greene, Th. W. “Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis”, Wiley, New York, 1981; “The Peptides”, Vol. I, Schröder and Lubke, Academic Press, London and New York, 1965; “Methoden der organischen Chemie”, Houben-Weyl, 4th Edition, Vol.15/I, Georg Thieme Verlag, Stuttgart 1974, the disclosures of which are incorporated herein by reference.
  • [0040]
    An amino group can be protected as an amide utilizing an acyl group which is selectively removable under mild conditions, especially benzyloxycarbonyl, formyl, or a lower alkanoyl group which is branched in 1- or α position to the carbonyl group, particularly tertiary alkanoyl such as pivaloyl, a lower alkanoyl group which is substituted in the position cc to the carbonyl group, as for example trifluoroacetyl.
  • [0041]
    Coupling agents include such reagents as dicyclohexylcarbodimide and N,N′-carbonyldiimidazole.
  • [0042]
    Following coupling, compounds of Formula V can be aminated in a convention manner, as for example with an amine in the presence of sodium iodide.
  • [0043]
    Alternatively, a compound of Formula III is allowed to react with a protected aminocarboxylic acid of Formula IVA:
  • [0044]
    in which Z is a protected amino group.
  • [0045]
    Following this coupling, the amino protecting group Z is removed.
  • [0046]
    In the foregoing reactions when one of R1, R2, R3, and R4 is nitro, it can be converted to an amino group by catalytic hydrogenation. Alternatively, if one of R1, R2, R3, and R4 is protected amino, the protecting group can be cleaved to yield the corresponding compound in which one of R1, R2, R3, and R4 is amino.
  • [0047]
    In addition to serving as intermediates, certain other compound of Formula IIA are themselves biologically active in reducing levels of tumor necrosis factor a in a mammal. These compounds are those of the formula:
  • [0048]
    in which:
  • [0049]

    Certain of the intermediates of Formula IIA are described in copending applications Ser. Nos. 08/690,258, and 08/701,494, the disclosures of which are incorporated herein by reference. In addition, an alkyl o-bromomethylbenzoate which is appropriately substituted with R1, R 2, R3, and R4 substituents is allowed to react with an α-R6-substituted α-aminoglutarimide salt in the presence of an acid acceptor such as triethyl amine to yield compounds in which one of X and Y is C═O and the other is CH2.
  • [0055]
    Compounds of Formula IIA in which X and Y are both C═O also can be prepared by allowing a phthalic an hydride which is appropriately substituted with R1, R2, R3, and R4 to react with an α-R6-substituted α-aminoglutarimide salt in the presence of acetic acid and sodium acetate.
  • [0056]
    The α-R6-substituted α-aminoglutarimide salt utilized in the foregoing reactions can be obtained by cyclizing an α-R6-substituted glutamine in which the amino group is protected. The cyclization can be conducted for example with N,N′-carbonyldiimidazole in the presence of an acid acceptor such as dimethylaminopyridine. Upon completion of the reaction, the protecting group can be removed in an appropriate fashion. Solely by way of example, if the protecting group is the N-benzyloxycarbonyl group, it can be removed by catalytic hydrogenation.
  • [0057]
    The α-R6-substituted glutamines in turn can be prepared by treating an α-R6-substituted glutamic acid anhydride, in which the amino group is protected, with ammonia. Finally, the α-R6-substituted glutamic acid anhydride can be obtained from the corresponding α-R6-substituted glutamic acid with acetic anhydride.

    The compounds of Formulas I and IIB possess a center of chirality and can exist as optical isomers. Both the racemates of these isomers and the individual isomers themselves, as well as diastereomers when there are two chiral centers, are within the scope of the present invention. The racemates can be used as such or can be separated into their individual isomers mechanically as by chromatography using a chiral absorbant. Alternatively, the individual isomers can be prepared in chiral form or separated chemically from a mixture by forming salts with a chiral acid, such as the individual enantiomers of 10-camphorsulfonic acid, camphoric acid, α-bromocamphoric acid, methoxyacetic acid, tartaric acid, diacetyltartaric acid, malic acid, pyrrolidone-5-carboxylic acid, and the like, and then freeing one or both of the resolved bases, optionally repeating the process, so as obtain either or both substantially free of the other; i.e., in a form having an optical purity of >95%.
