Description
TECHNICAL FIELD

[0001] The present invention relates to an integrin expression inhibitor, specifically, an integrin α2β1, α3β1, α5β1, α6β1, αv⊕1, αvβ3 or αvβ5 expression inhibitor. Further it relates to an angiogenesis agent, an anticoagulant, an anticancer agent, a cancer metastasis suppressor, and an agent for treating retinal angiogenesis, diabetic retinopathy, inflammatory diseases, arterial sclerosis, psoriasis and osteoporosis, on the basis of integrin expression inhibitory action.

PRIOR ART

[0002] Integrin structurally consists of a heterodimer in which two types of sub-unit, namely, integrin α and integrin β are associated with each other by non-covalent binding. At least 16 types of α chains and 8 types of β chains have been found. A variety of molecular groups differing in ligand specificity are formed by the combination of these α and β chains and 22 types of integrins have been known. Integrin has a function as cell membrane receptor protein for an adhesive molecule of an animal cell, expresses on a cell membrane and participates in the adhesion between a cell and an extracellular matrix (ECM) or between cells. When the cell adhesive molecule is combined with integrin, a signaling system in a cell starts moving and as a result, not only cell adhesion, but also cell evolution, cell proliferation, apoptosis, differentiation, cytoskeleton orientation, cell migration, histogenesis, cancer infiltration and metastasis, wound healing, blood coagulation and the like operate. It has been known that among these integrins, integrin α2β1 of which the adhesive molecules are collagen and laminin participates in platelet aggregation, cancer infiltration and metastasis (HAYASHI Masao & MIYAMOTO Yasunori, PROTEIN, NUCLEIC ACID, ENZYME, Vol 44, pp130-135, (1999)) and angiogenesis (Donald R. Senger et al, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 94, 13612-13617, (1997)). It has come to be clarified that among these symptoms, the proliferation of cancer is closely related to angiogenesis. In recent years, it has been demonstrated experimentally that an antiangiogenesis agent can inhibit and further reduce proliferative cancer and no resistant cancer is generated in a transplant cancer model and there is shown a correlation between angiogenesis and exacerbations of many solid cancers such as mammary cancer, prostatic cancer, lung cancer and colonic cancer in clinical examinations (T. Boem et al, Nature, 390 (27) 404-407, (1997)). Also, αvβ1 of which the adhesive molecules are fibronectin and vitronectin participates in the adhesion of a cancer cell to a substrate and αvβ3 of which the adhesive molecules are vitronectin and thrombospongin and αvβ5 of which the adhesive molecule is vitronectin participate in angiogenesis, cancer metastasis and the regeneration of bone (Shattil, S. J., Thromb. Haemost., 74, 149-155, (1995), Friedlander M, et al, Sceience, 270, 1500-1502, (1995)). Further, it has been known that α3β1 of which the adhesive molecules are fibronectin, collagen, laminin, laminin 5 and the like, α5β1 of which the adhesive molecule is fibronectin and α6β1 of which the adhesive molecules are laminin and laminin 5 participate in cancer infiltration and metastasis (MATSUURA Nariaki et al., JAPAN CLINIC, Vol 53, pp1643-1647, (1995), OTA Ichiro et al, CLINICAL PATHOLOGY, Vol 45, 528-533, (1997)).

[0003] WO9950249 discloses the antagonist of integrin αvβ3, however there is no suggestion concerning the expression inhibitory action of integrin αvβ3. In JP-A 7-165708 and JP-A 8-231505, the same sulfonamide compound as that used in the present invention is disclosed; however, there is neither description nor hint concerning integrin expression inhibitory action. WO9301182 discloses-anti-tumor agents utilizing a specific tyrosine kinase inhibitive action of a compound having an indole skeleton. These agents are indolylmethylene-2-indolinone compounds, which differ from that of the present invention. WO964016 likewise discloses anti-tumor agents utilizing a specific tyrosine kinase inhibitory action of a compound having an indole skeleton. However, these agents are 2-indolinone-3-methylene derivatives, which differ from that of the present invention.

[0004] An antiangiogenesis agent, an anticancer agent, a cancer metastasis suppressor, an anticoagulant agent, and an agent for treating arterial sclerosis, psoriasis, retinal angiogenesis, diabetic retinopathy or inflammatory diseases on the basis of an integrin expression inhibitory action have not been known so far.

[0005] The present invention provides an agent for treating a disease against which an integrin expression inhibitiory action is effective. Specifically, it is an object of the present invention to provide an antiangiogenic agent, an anticancer agent, a cancer metastasis suppressor, an anticoagulant, and an agent for treating arterial sclerosis, psoriasis, osteoporosis, retinal angiogenesis, diabetic retinopathy or inflammatory diseases, which comprises, as an active ingredient, a compound having an integrin expression inhibitory action. Another object of the present invention is to provide an integrin expression inhibitor comprising a sulfonamide compound.

[0045] (wherein the Aaa ring represents a monocyclic or bicyclic aromatic ring which may have a protected or unprotected substituent; and Wa has the same meaning as above) or its reactive derivative with a compound represented by the formula (IIIa):

Also, in the reaction, in the case where a free acid appears with the progress of the reaction as shown in the case of using a sulfonyl halide, the reaction is preferably run in the presence of a proper deoxidizer. Therefore, the use of a basic solvent such as pyridine is particularly preferable. When a neutral solvent is used, a basic substance such as an alkali carbonate and an organic tertiary amine may be added. It is needless to say that usable solvents are not limited to these exemplified solvents. Although the reaction generally proceeds at room temperature, the raw materials may be cooled or heated according to the need. The reaction time is generally 10 minutes to 20 hours but is selected according to the type of raw material and the reaction temperature.

[0048] In the case where the amino group or the hydroxyl group is protected in the resulting product, a sulfonamide derivative or sulfonate derivative (Ia) having a free hydroxyl group or amino group can be obtained by a usual deprotecting method such as acid treatment, alkali treatment and catalytic reduction, as required.

As the halogenating agent, N-chlorosuccinimide, N-bromosuccinimide, 1,3-dibromo-5,5-dimethylhydantoin, N-bromoacetamide, chlorine and bromine may be proposed. Although no particular limitation is imposed on the solvent to be used in the reaction, an alkyl chloride compound such as dichloromethane, chloroform and carbon tetrachloride, or an aromatic chloride such as chlorobenzene and dichlorobenzene is generally used, and a water-soluble solvent such as dimethylformamide, dioxane, pyridine and acetonitrile may be also used. Although the reaction temperature differs depending on the types of halogenating agent and substrate, it is usually run at −50° C. to 100° C.

[0051] In the case where the amino group or the hydroxyl group is protected in the resulting product, a sulfonamide derivative or sulfonate derivative (Ia) having a free hydroxyl group or amino group can be obtained by a usual deprotecting method such as acid treatment, alkali treatment and catalytic reduction, as required.

As the substituent convertible into cyano group by dehydration, (hydroxyimino) methyl group and carbamoyl group may be proposed.

[0054] Also, it is possible that an oxime or an acid amide is first synthesized from an aldehyde or a carboxylic acid used as a starting material and then reacted with a dehydrating agent without isolating it. As examples of the dehydrating agent, those used in a usual method of synthesizing nitrile, for example, acetic acid anhydride, thionyl chloride, phosphorous oxychloride, selenium dioxide and 1,3-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide may be given. Although no particular limitation is imposed on the solvent to be used in the reaction, those which do not react with these materials with ease is desirable, for example pyridine, ethyl ether, benzene, dimethylformamide, carbon tetrachloride, acetonitrile and tetrahydrofuran, or a mixed solvent of two or more solvents selected from these solvents may be utilized.

The catalytic reduction may be usually carried out under normal pressure or under pressure in an organic solvent such as methanol, tetrahydrofuran or dimethylformamide.

[0059] In the case where the hydroxyl group is protected in the resulting product, a sulfonamide derivative or sulfonate derivative (Ia) having a free hydroxyl group can be obtained using a usual deprotecting method such as acid treatment, alkali treatment and catalytic reduction, as required.

[0060] 5) It May be Produced by Reacting a Compound Represented by the Formula (VIIa):

[0061] (wherein the Aca ring means a monocyclic or bicyclic aromatic ring which has a dissociable group on the ring or in a substituent, and may also have a protected or unprotected substituent; and the Baa ring, the Caa ring, Wa, Xa, Ya and Za have the same meanings as above) with a nucleophilic agent. Examples of the leaving group may include a halogen group, methanesulfonyloxy group and p-toluenesulfonyloxy group. Examples of the nucleophilic agent may include amines, alcohols and thiols. In the case of alcohols or thiols, these compounds may have the form of a salt of an alkali metal or the like upon reaction. Although no particular limitation is imposed on the solvent to be used in the reaction, a solvent which dissolves raw materials and does not react with these materials with ease is desirable. For example, tetrahydrofuran, dioxane, dimethylformamide or water may be utilized. Although the reaction temperature differs depending on the type of substrate, the reaction is usually run at −50° C. to 150° C.

[0062] In the case where the amino group or the hydroxyl group is protected in the resulting product, a sulfonamide derivative or sulfonate derivative (Ia) having a free hydroxyl group or amino group can be obtained by a usual deprotecting method such as acid treatment, alkali treatment and catalytic reduction, as required.

[0063] Next, methods for producing the raw material compound (IIa) and its reactive derivative and the compound (IIIa) used in the present invention will be explained.

[0064] The raw material compound (IIa) and its reactive derivative include known compounds and novel compounds. In the case of these novel compounds, these compounds may be produced by applying a method of synthesizing a known compound which has been already reported or by using a combination of these known methods. For example, a novel sulfonyl chloride may be produced by a method obtained by applying synthetic methods described in Chem. Ber., 90, 841 (1957), J. Med. Chem., 6, 307 (1963), J. Chem. Soc.(c), 1968, 1265, Chem. Lett., 1992, 1483, J. Am. Chem. Soc., 59, 1837 (1937), J. Med. Chem., 23, 1376 (1980), J. Am. Chem. Soc., 70, 375 (1948), J. Am. Chem. Soc., 78, 2171 (1956) etc.

[0065] The raw material compound (IIIa) includes known compounds and novel compounds. In the case where H—Xa— represents an amino group H2N— in the raw material compound (IIIa), an H2N body (IIIa) can be obtained by reducing the nitro compound by using a nitro group-reducing method which is usually used. Preferable examples of the reducing methods include catalytic reduction using a palladium-carbon catalyst and reduction using a zinc powder-hydrochloric acid. The catalytic reduction may be usually carried out under normal pressure or under pressure in an organic solvent such as methanol, tetrahydrofuran and dimethylformamide.

[0066] In the case where H—Xa— means hydroxyl group (HO—) in the raw material compound (IIIa), a HO compound (IIIa) can be obtained by diazotizing the above amino compound and then hydrolyzing the resulting product.

[0067] In the case where the raw material compounds are these novel compounds, these compounds may be produced by applying a method of synthesizing a known compound which has been already reported or by using a combination of these known methods. A novel compound may be produced by applying the methods described in Can. J. Chem., 42, 1235 (1964), Chem. Abst., 59, 8855f (1963), Tetrahedron Lett., 30, 2129 (1989) etc. through, for example, the following route.

[0068] In the formula, Qas mean the same or different substituents; Ga means a halogen group; and ta means an integer from 0 to 2.

[0069] In the formula, Qa and ta have the same meanings as above.

[0070] In the formula, Qa, Ga and ta have the same meanings as above; and DPPA means diphenylphosphorylazide.

[0071] In the formula, Qa, Ga and ta have the same meanings as above; and DDQ means 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone.

[0072] Next, the compound (Ib) of the present invention may be produced by various methods. Among them, typical methods are as follows.

[0073] 1) When Zb is a Single Bond

[0074] In the formula, Ab, Bb, Tb, Ub, Vb, Wb, Xb and Tb have the same meanings as above. It may be produced by reacting the sulfonic acid represented by the formula (Vb) or its reactive derivative with the compound represented by the formula (VIb).

[0075] As examples of the reactive derivative of the sulfonic acid (Vb), reactive derivatives generally utilized frequently such as sulfonyl halides, sulfonic acid anhydrides and N-sulfonylimidazolides may be proposed. A particularly preferable example is a sulfonyl halide. Although no particular limitation is imposed on the solvent to be used in the reaction, those which dissolve the raw material and do not react with the raw material with ease are desirable. For example, pyridine, tetrahydrofuran, dioxane, benzene, ethyl ether, dichloromethane and dimethylformamide, or a mixed solvent of two or more solvents selected from these may be utilized. Also, in this reaction, in the case where a free acid appears with the progress of the reaction as shown in the case of using a sulfonyl halide, the reaction is preferably run in the presence of a proper deoxidizer. Therefore, the use of a basic solvent such as pyridine is particularly preferable. When a neutral solvent is used, a basic substance such as an alkali carbonate and an organic tertiary amine may be added. It is needless to say that usable solvents are not limited to these exemplified solvents. Although this reaction generally proceeds at room temperature, the raw materials may be cooled or heated according to the need. The reaction time is generally 10 minutes to 20 hours but is optionally selected according to the type of raw material and the reaction temperature.

[0076] In the case where the amino group or the hydroxyl group is protected in the resulting product, a sulfonamide derivative (VIIb) having a free hydroxyl group or amino group can be obtained using a usual deprotecting method such as acid treatment, alkali treatment and catalytic reduction, as required.

[0080] The reaction is run in water or a water-miscible non-reactive solvent such as tetrahydrofuran and acetone in the presence of abase such as sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, lithium hydroxide, sodium methoxide and sodium hydride. The reaction is run at a temperature from 0° C. up to 100° C. and preferably about 20 to 30° C.

[0082] The reaction between the sulfonamide represented by the formula (IXb) with the haloformate represented by the formula (XIIIb) is run in a non-reactive solvent such as acetone, tetrahydrofuran and methyl ethyl ketone in the presence of an acid scavenger such as potassium carbonate, sodium carbonate, potassium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide. The reaction is run at a temperature from about 30° C. to a refluxing temperature. Next, the reaction between the carbamate represented by the formula (XIIb) and the amine represented by the formula (XIb) is run in an inert and high-boiling point solvent such as dioxane, toluene and diglym under heating at a temperature from about 50° C. to a refluxing temperature.

[0083] The amine compound represented by the formula (VIb) or (XIb) as the raw material of the sulfonamide or sulfonylurea-containing heterocyclic compound of the present invention may be produced using a combination of known methods.

[0084] For example, quinoline and isoquinoline derivatives may be produced in the following production steps.

[0085] In the formula wherein Ab, E2b, G2b and R16b have the same meanings as above; and R18b means a C1-C4 alkyl group or benzyl group.

[0086] In the formula, Ab and G2b have the same meanings as above.

[0087] In the formula, R18b has the same meaning as above; and R19b means a C1-C4 alkyl group.

[0088] In the formula, R18b and E2b have the same meanings as above; R20b and R21b respectively means hydrogen atom or a C1-C4 alkyl group; R22b represents a C1-C4 alkoxy group, a phenoxy group or phenyl group which may have a substituent, cyano group or an amino group which may be substituted with a mono- or di-C1-C4 alkyl group; and E3b represents hydrogen atom, a halogen atom, a C1-C4 alkoxy group, a phenoxy group or phenyl group which may have a substituent, cyano group or an amino group which may be substituted with a mono- or di-C1-C4 alkyl group.

[0089] When the compound of the present invention is used as drugs, it is administered orally or parenterally. The dose of the compound differs depending on the degree of symptoms, the ages, sexes, weights and a difference in sensitivity of patients, the administration method, the time of administration, administration interval, the features of drug preparations, prescription and types of drug preparations, the types of active ingredients etc. and no particular limitation is imposed on the dose. However, the dose is generally 10 to 6000 mg, preferably about 50 to 4000 mg and more preferably 100 to 3000 mg per day for an adult and the drug is generally administered at the defined dose in one to three protons a day.

[0090] When preparing oral solid preparations, a filler and further, as required, a binder, a disintegrator, a lubricant, a colorant and a flavoring agent were added to a base drug and then the mixed drugs are made into tablets, coated tablets, granules, fine granules, powders or capsule agents.

(The name of each compound is shown by Synthetic Example number.)

[0100] The effect of the compound of the present invention will be shown below by way of examples of pharmacological experiments.

[0101] It is to be noted that the compound A in the examples of pharmacological experiments indicates the compound obtained in Synthetic Example 1.

EXAMPLE 1

[0102] Integrin Expression Inhibitory Action on a Human Umbilical Venous Endothelial Cells (HUVEC)

[0103] Human umbilical venous endothelial cells (HUVEC) of 5×105 in number were seeded in a 75 cm2 cell culture bottle and then cultured using an EGM medium (Sanko Junyaku) at 37° C. in a CO2 incubator. Then, after 3 hours, the EGM medium was exchanged for the same medium including compound A, which was then cultured for further 48 hours. Next, the cells were collected and washed with a bovine serum albumin-containing phophate buffer solution and the above buffer solution containing various anti-human integrin mouse antibodies was added to the cells and the solution containing cells was allowed to stand at 4° C. for 30 minutes. After washed, FITC connective anti-mouse IgG antibody was added to the cells, which was then allowed to stand for 30 minutes and washed again. Next, the cells were fixed and the amount of antibody connected per cell was measured as the amount of FITC by using a flow cytometer.

[0104] As shown in FIG. 1 described later, the compound A inhibited the expression of integrins α2, α3, α5, α6, αv, β1, β3 and β5 on the surface of the cell in a concentration of 0.05 μg/ml.

EXAMPLE 2

[0105] Integrin Expression Inhibitory Action on a Human Colonic Cancer Cell Line (HCT116-C9)

[0106] The integrin expression inhibitory action of the compound A on the above cells was examined in the same manner as in Example 1.

[0107] As shown in FIG. 2 described later, the compound A inhibited the expression of integrins α2, α3, α5, α6, β1 and β4 in a concentration of 0.05 μg/ml and in a concentration of 0.5 μg/ml.

EXAMPLE 3

[0108] Integrin Expression Inhibitory Action on a Human Normal Fibroblast Cell Line (WI38)

[0109] The integrin expression inhibitory action of the compound A on the above cells was examined in the same manner as in Example 1.

[0110] As shown in FIG. 3 described later, the compound A having a higher concentration than in Examples 1 and 2 slightly inhibited the expression of integrins α2, α3 and α4, but had no influence on the expression of integrins α1, α5, α6 and β1.

[0111] As mentioned above, it is clear that the compound A inhibits the expression of integrin in endothelial cells and cancer cells but exerts almost no inhibitory action on normal fibroblast cells.

EXAMPLE 4

[0112] Antiangiogenic Effect-1

[0113] The inhibition degree of angiogenesis which was observed when aorta pieces of rat were incubated in collagen was defined as an antiangiogenic effect. That is, the aorta excised from male rat of Sprague-Dawley strain (10-12 weeks age) was washed with a Hanks' solution so that fat tissues around there were removed minutely. The aorta was incised to prepare pieces of 2 mm square and they were allowed to stand in a 24-well plate holding the endothelial cells upside. Then, 500 μl of neutralized Type I collagen (Cell Matrix Type I-A; manufactured by Nitta Gelatin) were poured over each well and allowed to stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes in a clean bench to solidify the gel. After confirming that the gel was solidified, 500 μl of MCDB 131 medium (manufactured by Chlorella Kogyo) were added thereto followed by incubating in a CO2 incubator (5% CO2) at37° C. On the next day, the culture medium was exchanged with 500 μl of MCDB 131 medium containing the test compound and the incubation was continued. After three days, the medium was again exchanged with 500 μl of MCDB 131 medium containing the test compound and, at the stage of the 7th day from the initiation of addition of the test compound, numbers of capillaries formed around the aorta were counted under a microscope. The solution containing the test compound was prepared in a three-fold dilution system where 10 μg/ml was the highest concentration.

[0114] Inhibiting rate was calculated from the following formula and 50% inhibiting concentration (IC50) for each test compound was determined.

Inhibiting Rate (%)=(C−T)/100

[0115] C: Numbers of capillaries when no compound was added

[0116] T: Numbers of capillaries when a compound was added

[0117] The compound according to the present invention showed an IC50 value of 0.05 to 3 μg/ml.

EXAMPLE 5

[0118] Antiangiogenic Effect-2

[0119] 0.4 ml of type I collagen was added to a 24-well plate and solidified. Human umbilical venous endothelial cells (HUVEC) of 8×104 in number were seeded on the collagen and cultured overnight by using endotherial cells culture solution (Gibco BRL) containing 10 ng/ml EGF and 20 ng/ml bFGF. Next, the supernatant was removed and then 0.4 ml of the same collagen was overlaid. A culture solution containing 1.5 ml of the compound A was further added and the cells were cultured for 4 days. Thereafter, the area of the formed tube was measured quantitatively by image analysis.

[0120] The IC50 of the compound A was 0.12 μg/ml. It was confirmed that an α2 antibody had the same effect, but this effect was not observed in the case of an α5 antibody.

EXAMPLE 6

[0121] Antianigiogenic Effect-3 (in Vivo)

[0122] The above activity was evaluated using a method obtained by improving a mouse air capsule method (Sakamoto et al., Cancer Res., 1, 55-57, 1986) in part. Specifically, a millipore ring (Nippon Millipore) was sealed using a 0.22 μm membrane filter (HAWPO, Nippon Millipore) to form a chamber. 1×107 human colic cancer cell strains (WiDr) which were suspended in a phosphoric acid buffer solution were sealed into the chamber. Next, an air capsule was formed on a subcutaneous site of the backside of a C57 Black female mouse of 6 to 8 weeks age and the foregoing chamber was transplanted to the air capsule. The compound A was orally administered after about 6 hours passed after the transplantation was finished and afterwards administered in sequence once a day for 3 days. The erythrocytes of the mouse that was labeled with 51Cr was injected from the tail vein 4 days after the chamber was transplanted. After one hour, the skin at the portion which was in contact with the chamber was resected under anesthesia. After the skin was frozen, only the portion which was in contact with the chamber was separated precisely to measure the amount of blood by using γ counter. Then, a value obtained by subtracting the amount of blood measured in the case of the chamber including no cancer cell from the above amount of blood was determined as the amount of angiogenesis. In the experiment, the control groups consisted of 10 mice per group and the compound-administrated groups consisted of 5 mice per group.

[0123] If the results are evaluated by T/C (%): the amount of angiogenesis of the compound-administered groups/the amount of angiogenesis of the vehicle-administered groups×100, the compound A had such an effect as T/C=53% at a dose of 50 mg/kg.

EXAMPLE 7

[0124] Integrin α2 Expression Inhibitory Action on a Human Umbilical Venous Endothelial Cells (HUVEC)

[0125] Human umbilical venous endothelial cells (HUVEC) of 5×105 in number were seeded in a 75 cm2 cell culture bottle and then cultured using an EGM medium (Sanko Junyaku) at 37° C. in a CO2 incubator. Then, after 3 hours, the EGM medium was exchanged for the same medium including a compound of 0.5 μg/ml, which was then cultured for further 48 hours. Next, the cells were collected and washed with a bovine serum albumin-containing phosphate buffer solution and the above buffer solution containing an anti-human integrin α2 mouse antibody was added thereto and the solution was allowed to stand at 4° C. for 30 minutes. After washed, FITC connective anti-mouse IgG antibody was added to the cells, which was then allowed to stand for 30 minutes and washed again. Next, the cells were fixed and the amount of antibody connected per cell was measured as the amount of FITC by using a flow cytometer. The inhibitory action of each compound is shown by the ratio (%) of the amount of expression to that obtained in the untreated compound. The name of each compound is shown by Synthetic Example number.

[0126] As shown in FIG. 4 described later, each compound inhibited the expression of integrin α2 on the surface of the cell in a concentration of 0.5 μg/ml.
