Description
RELATED APPLICATIONS

[0001] Benefit of U.S. Provisional Application Serial No. 60/330,128, filed on Oct. 17, 2001 is hereby claimed, and said application is herein incorporated by reference in its entirety.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0002] The present invention relates to trisubstituted pyrimidines of formula (I),

[0003] wherein the groups Ra to Re have the meanings given in the claims and in the specification, processes for preparing them and the use of compounds of general formula (I) as pharmaceutical compositions, particularly as pharmaceutical compositions for the treatment of illnesses in which the proliferation of cells, particularly endothelial cells, plays a part, or as pharmaceutical compositions with a beta-amyloid-modulating effect.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0004] The aggregation and precipitation of proteins are implicated in the origins of various neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and St. Vitus' dance (“Huntington's Chorea”). In Alzheimer's disease the amyloid-β-peptide (Aβ) aggregates and leads to insoluble senile plaques which constitute one of the pathological markers of the disease. Aβ is formed by the proteolytic cleaving of a precursor protein, amyloid precursor protein (APP). Two methods of metabolising APP have been detected, the non-amyloidogenic method and the amyloidogenic method.

[0005] In the non-amyloidogenic metabolism of APP, α-secretase cleaves within the Aβ region of the APP and thus leads to the secretion of the soluble N-terminal region of the protein (α-APPs) and, after the γ-secretase cutting has taken place, to the release of p3. By contrast, the amyloidogenic route leads to the formation of Aβ, two proteases generating the N-terminus (β-secretase) and the C-terminus (γ-secretase), respectively, of Aβ.

[0006] Aβ can be detected in human plasma and cerebrospinal fluid in vivo. In cell culture, too, secreted Aβ can be detected in the cell culture supernatant of various types of cells which express or overexpress APP or fragments thereof endogenously.

[0007] The problem of the present invention is to prepare compounds which are capable of interfering (preferably in an inhibitory capacity) in the process of the formation of Aβ or its release from cells, or of reducing the activity of Aβ by inhibiting it. Finally, the present invention is based on the further objective of preparing compounds which can be used effectively for the prevention or treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

[0334] In order to prepare a corresponding sulphinyl compound of general formula I the oxidation is conveniently carried out with one equivalent of the oxidising agent used, e.g. with hydrogen peroxide in glacial acetic acid, trifluoroacetic acid or formic acid at 0 to 20° C. or in acetone at 0 to 60° C., with a peracid such as performic acid in glacial acetic acid or trifluoroacetic acid at 0 to 50° C. or with m-chloroperbenzoic acid in methylene chloride, chloroform or dioxane at −20 to 80° C., with sodium metaperiodate in aqueous methanol or ethanol at −15 to 25° C., with bromine in glacial acetic acid or aqueous acetic acid, optionally in the presence of a weak base such as sodium acetate, with N-bromosuccinimide in ethanol, with tert.butyl hypochlorite in methanol at −80 to −30° C., with iodobenzodichloride in aqueous pyridine at 0 to 50° C., with nitric acid in glacial acetic acid at 0 to 20° C., with chromic acid in glacial acetic acid or in acetone at 0 to 20° C. and with sulphurylchloride in methylene chloride at −70° C., the resulting thioether-chlorine complex is conveniently hydrolysed with aqueous ethanol.

[0335] In order to prepare a sulphonyl compound of general formula I the oxidation is conveniently carried out, starting from a corresponding sulphinyl compound, with one or more equivalents of the oxidising agent used or, starting from a corresponding sulphenyl compound, conveniently with two or more equivalents of the oxidising agent used, e.g. with hydrogen peroxide in glacial acetic acid/acetic anhydride, trifluoroacetic acid or in formic acid at 20 to 100° C. or in acetone at 0 to 60° C., with a peracid such as performic acid or m-chloroperbenzoic acid in glacial acetic acid, trifluoroacetic acid, methylene chloride or chloroform at temperatures between 0 and 60° C., with nitric acid in glacial acetic acid at 0 to 20° C., with chromic acid, sodium periodate or potassium permanganate in acetic acid, water/sulphuric acid or in acetone at 0 to 20° C.

[0336] A mixture of a corresponding sulphinyl and sulphonyl compound of general formula I optionally obtained in this way may subsequently, if desired, be separated by known methods, e.g. by chromatography.

[0337] The subsequent preparation of a compound of general formula I which contains a tetrazole group is preferably carried out in a solvent such as benzene, toluene or dimethylformamide at temperatures between 80 and 150° C., preferably at 120 and 130° C. The hydrohalic acid required is conveniently librated during the reaction from an alkali metal azide, e.g. from sodium azide, in the presence of a weak acid such as ammonium chloride. The reaction may also be carried out with a different salt or derivative of hydrohalic acid, preferably with aluminium azide or tributyl tin azide, in which case the tetrazole compound optionally obtained in this way is liberated from the salt contained in the reaction mixture by acidification with a dilute acid such as 2N hydrochloric acid or 2N sulphuric acid.

[0338] The subsequent conversion of a compound of general formula I which contains a hydroxyalkyl group into a corresponding haloalkyl compound is preferably carried out with a halogen-introducing agent such as phosphorus oxychloride or thionyl chloride in a solvent such as methylene chloride at temperatures between 0 and the boiling temperature of the reaction mixture.

[0339] The subsequent conversion of a compound of formula I which contains a haloalkyl group into a corresponding aminoalkyl compound of general formula I is preferably carried out in a solvent such as methylene chloride or acetonitrile or in an excess of the amine used as solvent and optionally in the presence of a tertiary organic base at temperatures between 0 and 150° C., preferably at temperatures between 20 and 80° C.

[0340] The subsequent conversion of a compound of general formula I which contains a hydroxyethylaminocarbonylamino group into a corresponding imidazolidinone of general formula I is preferably carried out in a solvent such as tetrahydrofuran in the presence of a dehydrating agent such as triphenylphosphine/ethyl azodicarboxylate at temperatures between 0 and 50° C., preferably at temperatures between 0 and 150° C.

[0341] The subsequent conversion of a compound of general formula I which contains an amino group into a corresponding 1-pyrrolo compound of general formula I is preferably carried out in a solvent such as glacial acetic acid with 2,5-dimethoxy-tetrahydrofuran at temperatures between 20 and 150° C., preferably at temperatures between 100 and 150° C.

[0342] In the reactions described hereinbefore, any reactive groups present such as hydroxy, carboxy, amino, alkylamino or imino groups may be protected during the reaction by conventional protecting groups which are cleaved again after the reaction.

[0343] For example, a protecting group for a hydroxy group may be a trimethylsilyl, acetyl, benzoyl, methyl, ethyl, tert.butyl, trityl, benzyl or tetrahydropyranyl group,

[0344] a protecting group for a carboxyl group may be a trimethylsilyl, methyl, ethyl, tert.butyl, benzyl or tetrahydropyranyl group and

[0345] protecting groups for an amino, alkylamino or imino group may be a formyl, acetyl, trifluoroacetyl, ethoxycarbonyl, tert.butoxycarbonyl, benzyloxycarbonyl, benzyl, methoxybenzyl or 2,4-dimethoxybenzyl group and additionally, for the amino group, a phthalyl group.

[0346] Any protecting group used is optionally subsequently cleaved for example by hydrolysis in an aqueous solvent, e.g. in water, isopropanol/water, acetic acid/water, tetrahydrofuran/water or dioxane/water, in the presence of an acid such as trifluoroacetic acid, hydrochloric acid or sulphuric acid or in the presence of an alkali metal base such as sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide or aprotically, e.g. in the presence of iodotrimethylsilane, at temperatures between 0 and 120° C., preferably at temperatures between 10 and 100° C.

[0347] However, a benzyl, methoxybenzyl or benzyloxycarbonyl group is cleaved for example hydrogenolytically, e.g. with hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst such as palladium/charcoal in a suitable solvent such as methanol, ethanol, ethyl acetate or glacial acetic acid, optionally with the addition of an acid such as hydrochloric acid at temperatures between 0 and 100° C., but preferably at temperatures between 20 and 60° C., and at a hydrogen pressure of 1 to 7 bar, but preferably 3 to 5 bar. A 2,4-dimethoxybenzyl group, however, is preferably cleaved in trifluoroacetic acid in the presence of anisole.

[0348] A tert.butyl or tert.butyloxycarbonyl group is preferably cleaved by treating with an acid such as trifluoroacetic acid or hydrochloric acid or by treating with iodotrimethylsilane, optionally using a solvent such as methylene chloride, dioxane, methanol or diethyl ether.

[0349] A trifluoroacetyl group is preferably cleaved by treating with an acid such as hydrochloric acid, optionally in the presence of a solvent such as acetic acid at temperatures between 50 and 120° C. or by treating with sodium hydroxide solution, optionally in the presence of a solvent such as tetrahydrofuran at temperatures between 0 and 50° C.

[0350] A phthalyl group is preferably cleaved in the presence of hydrazine or a primary amine such as methylamine, ethylamine or n-butylamine in a solvent such as methanol, ethanol, isopropanol, toluene/water or dioxane at temperatures between 20 and 50° C.

[0351] Moreover, the compounds of general formula I obtained may be resolved into their enantiomers and/or diastereomers, as mentioned hereinbefore. Thus, for example, cis/trans mixtures may be resolved into their cis and trans isomers, and compounds with at least one optically active carbon atom may be separated into their enantiomers.

[0352] Thus, for example, the cis/trans mixtures may be resolved by chromatography into the cis and trans isomers thereof, the compounds of general formula I obtained which occur as racemates may be separated by methods known per se (cf. Allinger N. L. and Eliel E. L. in “Topics in Stereochemistry”, Vol. 6, Wiley Interscience, 1971) into their optical antipodes and compounds of general formula I with at least 2 asymmetric carbon atoms may be resolved into their diastereomers on the basis of their physical-chemical differences using methods known per se, e.g. by chromatography and/or fractional crystallisation, and, if these compounds are obtained in racemic form, they may subsequently be resolved into the enantiomers as mentioned above.

[0353] The enantiomers are preferably separated by column separation on chiral phases or by recrystallisation from an optically active solvent or by reacting with an optically active substance which forms salts or derivatives such as e.g. esters or amides with the racemic compound, particularly acids and the activated derivatives or alcohols thereof, and separating the diastereomeric mixture of salts or derivatives thus obtained, e.g. on the basis of their differences in solubility, whilst the free antipodes may be released from the pure diastereomeric salts or derivatives by the action of suitable agents. Optically active acids in common use are e.g. the D- and L-forms of tartaric acid or dibenzoyltartaric acid, di-o-tolyltartaric acid, malic acid, mandelic acid, camphorsulphonic acid, glutamic acid, aspartic acid or quinic acid. An optically active alcohol may be, for example, (+) or (−)-menthol and an optically active acyl group in amides may be, for example, a (+)-or (−)-menthyloxycarbonyl.

[0354] Furthermore, the compounds of formula I obtained may be converted into the salts thereof, particularly for pharmaceutical use into the physiologically acceptable salts with inorganic or organic acids. Acids which may be used for this purpose include for example hydrochloric acid, hydrobromic acid, sulphuric acid, phosphoric acid, fumaric acid, succinic acid, lactic acid, citric acid, tartaric acid or maleic acid.

[0355] Moreover, if the new compounds of formula I thus obtained contain an acidic group such as a carboxy group, they may subsequently, if desired, be converted into the salts thereof with inorganic or organic bases, particularly for pharmaceutical use into the physiologically acceptable salts thereof. Suitable bases for this purpose include for example sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, arginine, cyclohexylamine, ethanolamine, diethanolamine and triethanolamine.

[0356] The compounds of general formulae II to V used as starting materials are known from the literature in some cases or may be obtained by methods known from the literature.

[0357] As already mentioned earlier, the compounds of formula I according to the invention and the physiologically acceptable salts thereof have valuable pharmacological properties, particularly the property of inhibiting the process of the formation of Aβ in cells or its release from cells. This property was investigated according to the test described below.

[0358] The inhibition of Aβ formation was investigated using the following test system:

[0359] Preparation of a Suitable γ-secretase HTS Cell Line:

[0360] H4 neuroglioma cells (Accession number HTB 148 at the “American Type Culture Collection”, Manassas, Va., USA) were transfected under standard conditions with the reporter construct pFRLuc (Stratagene) which carries the gene for luciferase. By transient transfection experiments with pcDNA3-Gal4 which codes for the soluble Gal4, an individual clone having the highest luciferase activity was selected. In order to prepare the Aβ-KKK/Gal4 construct, a sequence containing the N-terminal signal sequence of APP and the first 55 amino acids of Aβ (Shoji et al, 1992) was linked to the Gal4 coding sequence (Laughan, A and Gesteland, R Molec. Cell Biol., 1984, 4: 260-267) by genetic engineering and cloned into the expression vector pcDNA3neo (Invitrogen). This construct was called pcDNA3-AβKKK/Gal4. In order to insert an ER-retention signal in the substrate of the γ-secretase, the last nucleotides of the Gal4 were altered by genetic engineering so that they coded for the amino acids KKLI. This construct was named Aβ-KKK-ER. The cell clone obtained as described above was used for the second stable transfection with pcDNA3-Aβ-KKK/Gal4 or pcDNA3-Aβ-KKK-ER and the selection with neomycin was carried out under standard conditions (Sambrook and Maniatis, 1989). Individual neomycin-resistant cell clones were investigated for their expression of luciferase. The clones with the highest expression were used for the substance analyses. All the transfections were carried out using the Fugene transfection system supplied by Boehringer Mannheim, in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

[0361] HTS Assay Principle

[0362] The doubly stabile HTS cell line is seeded onto a 96/384 microtitre plate. When the cells are confluent, they are incubated with the particular test substance for a specified length of time. After incubation the cell medium is removed and the luciferase enzyme activity is determined precisely as instructed by the manufacturer of the test kit used (SteadyGlo, Promega).

[0363] As a result of the presence of an endogenous -secr e tase activity in the H4 cells the substrate (Aβ-KKK/Gal4) is cleaved proteolytically, while the transactivator Gal4 is able to become detached from the membrane and enter the cell nucleus. In the cell nucleus Gal4 binds to the Gal4-DNA binding domain of the reporter construct and thus activates the expression of the luciferase. If a specific -secretase inhibitor is present the substrate cannot be cleaved and Gal4 remains bound to the substrate on the cell membrane, leading to a reduction amounting to total inhibition of the luciferase activity.

[0364] Cells are seeded on 96/384 well plates in DMEM complete medium (10%FCS, 1% glutamine, 1% penicillin/streptomycin) in a dilution of 1:5. The cells are incubated for 24 to 48 h (depending on the cell clone and the dilution used) at 37° C., 5% CO2 and allowed to grow until 80-90% confluence is achieved. Then the test substance is added and the preparation is incubated overnight (8-16 h) at 37° C. and 5% CO2. The 96/384 well plates are equilibrated to ambient temperature (RT). The “Steady-Glo” Luciferase Assay System Kit (Promega catalogue no. E2520) is used. The Luciferase Assay Reagent is thawed and equilibrated to ambient temperature or freshly prepared (Luciferase Assay Substrate dissolved in Luciferase Assay Buffer). The medium is suction filtered to remove the cells. 100 μl (based on 96 well plates) of fresh complete medium are added per well. 100 μl (based on 96 well plates) of Luciferase Assay Reagent are added and the preparation is incubated for 5 min at RT. Then the luminescence is measured. For 384 well plates the quantities pipetted are reduced accordingly.

[0365] The measurements are compared with the control and then the IC50 is determined from a number of measurements.

[0366] The IC50 values obtained for the compounds according to the invention are shown in Table 1.

[0758] Coated tablets may be prepared accordingly by coating cores produced analogously to the tablets with substances normally used for tablet coatings, for example collidone or shellac, gum arabic, talc, titanium dioxide or sugar. To achieve delayed release or prevent incompatibilities the core may also consist of a number of layers. Similarly the tablet coating may consist of a number or layers to achieve delayed release, possibly using the excipients mentioned above for the tablets.

[0759] Syrups or elixirs containing the active substances or combinations thereof according to the invention may additionally contain a sweetener such as saccharine, cyclamate, glycerol or sugar and a flavour enhancer, e.g. a flavouring such as vanillin or orange extract. They may also contain suspension adjuvants or thickeners such as sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, wetting agents such as, for example, condensation products of fatty alcohols with ethylene oxide, or preservatives such as p-hydroxybenzoates.

[0760] Solutions for injection are prepared in the usual way, e.g. with the addition of preservatives such as p-hydroxybenzoates, or stabilisers such as alkali metal salts of ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid, and transferred into injection vials or ampoules.

[0761] Capsules containing one or more active substances or combinations of active substances may for example be prepared by mixing the active substances with inert carriers such as lactose or sorbitol and packing them into gelatine capsules.

[0762] Suitable suppositories may be made for example by mixing with carriers provided for this purpose, such as neutral fats or polyethyleneglycol or the derivatives thereof.

[0763] A therapeutically effective daily dose is between 1 and 5000 mg, preferably 100-1000 mg per adult.

[0764] The Examples which follow illustrate the present invention without restricting its scope:

400 mg 

[0767] The finely ground active substance, some of the corn starch, lactose, microcrystalline cellulose and polyvinylpyrrolidone are mixed together, the mixture is screened and worked with the remaining corn starch and water to form a granulate which is dried and screened. The sodium-carboxymethyl starch and the magnesium stearate are added and mixed in and the mixture is compressed to form tablets of a suitable size.

C) Coated tablets per coated tablet
Active substance  5 mg
Corn starch 41.5 mg  
Lactose 30 mg
Polyvinylpyrrolidone  3 mg
Magnesium stearate 0.5 mg 
80 mg

[0768] The active substance, corn starch, lactose and polyvinylpyrrolidone are thoroughly mixed and moistened with water. The moist mass is pushed through a screen with a 1 mm mesh size, dried at about 45° C. and the granules are then passed through the same screen. After the magnesium stearate has been mixed in, convex tablet cores with a diameter of 6 mm are compressed in a tablet-making machine. The tablet cores thus produced are coated in known manner with a covering consisting essentially of sugar and talc. The finished coated tablets are polished with wax.

D) Capsules per capsule
Active substance   50 mg
Corn starch 268.5 mg
Magnesium stearate  1.5 mg
 320 mg

[0769] The substance and corn starch are mixed and moistened with water. The moist mass is screened and dried. The dry granules are screened and mixed with magnesium stearate. The finished mixture is packed into size 1 hard gelatine capsules.

E) Ampoule solution
active substance 50 mg
sodium chloride 50 mg
water for inj.  5 ml

[0770] The active substance is dissolved in water at its own pH or optionally at pH 5.5 to 6.5 and sodium chloride is added to make it isotonic. The solution obtained is filtered free from pyrogens and the filtrate is transferred under aseptic conditions into ampoules which are then sterilised and sealed by fusion. The ampoules contain 5 mg, 25 mg and 50 mg of active substance.

F) Suppositories
Active substance  50 mg
Solid fat 1650 mg
1700 mg

[0771] The hard fat is melted. At 40° C. the ground active substance is homogeneously dispersed therein. The mixture is cooled to 38° C. and poured into slightly chilled suppository moulds.
