United States 2,837,463 THERAPEUTIC coMrosrrroNs COMPRISING S-AMINO HEXAHYDROPINES OR SALTS THEREOF No Drawing. Application January 10, 1958 Serial No. 708,072

21 Claims. (Cl. 167-93) This invention relates to therapeutic compositions and atent more particularly to therapeutic compositions containing certain S-amino hexahydro pyrimidine compounds.

This application is a continuation-in-part of our copending applications Serial No. 393,247, filed November 19, 1953, now abandoned, Serial No. 447,408, filed August 2, 1954, now abandoned, and Serial No. 547,332, filed November 16, 1955, now abandoned.

Briefly, the present invention is directed to therapeutic compositions comprising a compound having the formula: H:

C RN NR \C 111 \NH: wherein R is an alkyl, aryl, aralkyl, alkaryl, hydroxyalkyl, aminoalkyl or cycloalkyl radical and R is hydrogen, or a lower alkyl or hydroxymethyl radical, and a pharmaceutical carrier. In lieu of employing the above -amino-hexahydropyrimidines in the form of their free bases, the salts of these amine compounds may also be utilized.

Among .the several objects of the invention may be noted the provision of therapeutic compositions which are effective for various therapeutic purposes including, for example, the treatment of bovine mastitis, skin infections, fungus infections, scalp infections and other infections, both surface and systemic, caused by microorganisms; the provision of therapeutic compositions which are effective, for example, to inhibit the growth of microorganisms for which vitamin B is an essential metabolite or growth factor and certain enzyme systems in which cocarboxylase functions as an essential part; the provision of therapeutic compositions which are suitable, for example, for introduction into the oral cavity and for topical application to the skin and for parenteral administration; and the provision 'of therapeutic compositions of the class described which are nontoxic, nonsensitizing, nonirritating, and stable. Other objects and features will be in part apparent and in part pointed out hereinafter.

The invention accordingly comprises the products hereinafter described, the scope of the invention being indicated in. the following claims.

In accordance with the present invention, it has now I been found that compositions including a S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine compound having the following formula:

2,837,463 Patented June s, 1958 wherein R is an alkyl, aryl, aralkyl, alkaryl, hydroxyalkyl, aminoalkyl or cycloalkyl radical and R represents hydrogen or a lower alkyl or hydroxymethyl radical and the salts thereof, are useful therapeutic compositions for various applications. For example, we have found that the growth and development of microorganisms for which vitamin B is an essential metabolite or growth factor and the activity of certain enzyme systems in which cocarboxylase is an essential component can be effectively inhibited by the use of the novel therapeutic compositions of the present inventtion.

It is known that vitamin B is an essential metabolite, i. e., a necessary constituent of the normal metabolic processes, and growth factor for many microorganisms. The presence of the coenzyme, cocarboxylase, which is a crystalline diphosphoric acid ester of vitamin B is required in order for the enzyme carboxylase to remove carbon dioxide from pyruvic acid and other organic acids formed from carbohydrates in the metabolism of such microorganisms. Accordingly, in the presence of vitamin 13,, the microorganisms grow and develop normally through the energy derived from the metabolic process described above.

Without limiting in any way the scope of the invention with respect to the mode in which these novel therapeutic compositions operate when used for various therapeutic purposes, it is believed that the S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine component of the compositions of the invention acts as an antimetabolite or competitive antagonist for vitamin B in the metabolism of the microorganisms. The S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine component is believed to form a complex with the enzyme carboxylase which, unlike the complex formed in the case of vitamin B is incapable of effecting the chemical changes characteristic of those occurring in the presence of cocarboxylase. Consequently, the decarboxylation of pyruvic acid, for example, as well as other organic acids ceases and the growth and development of. the microorganisms are thereby inhibited because of this interruption of their normal metabolic processes. Likewise, the compositions of the present invention are effective against certain enzyme systems of which cocarboxylase is an essential component.

The compositions of the invention are markedly eflective in inhibiting the growth of microorganisms for which vitamin B is an essential metabolite or growth factor. 1

The measurement of antagonism between metabolite and antimetabolite may be expressed by a number known as the inhibition index. The inhibition index is the quotient of the ratio of concentration of the two substances at which their effects are just counterbalanced, and represents the amount of antimetabolite which is needed to overcome the effect of a unit weight of metabolite. Thus, a low inhibition index is indicative of the high effectiveness of an antimetabolite. The inhibition index in the case of vitamin B and the S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine compounds included in the compositions of the present invention is relatively low, and therefore, in general, it may be stated that ,only relatively small amounts of these compositions are required to offset the effect of relatively large amounts of vitamin B And since the antagonism between these pyrimidine compounds and vitamin B is competitive, the inhibition index is relatively constant with respect to all microorgan isms for which vitamin B is an essential metabolite.

Among the many microorganisms against which the compositions of the invention are effective may be menorganisms isolated from acute and chronic bovine mastitis cases. Further, under therapeutic conditions induction of resistance in microorganisms to the compositions of the invention has not been found.

The therapeutic compositions of the invention are useful and effective in various therapeutic applications including, for example, the treatment of bovine mastitis, skin infections, fungus infections such as athletes foot, scalp infections, vaginal infections, nose and throat infections and other infections caused by microorganisms for which vitamin B is an essential metabolite or growth factor.

Where the compositions of the invention are employed for dental purposes, their introduction into the oral cavity reduces acid formation on the tooth surface for prolonged periods of time and operates to maintain the pH well above the value of approximately 5.2. It is believed that the pyrimidine compound component of these therapeutic compositions operates by being effectively retained on dental plaques and, therefore, remains available over sustained periods of time to reduce acid production. These therapeutic compositions will exert a sufficiently persistent action in reducing acid production to be effective under the conditions of morning and evening use.

The pyrimidine compounds specified herein are not only compatible with other components employed in therapeutic compositions, but they are also stable, nontoxic, nonirritating and nonsensitizing. For example, the

LD (a standard statistical value which corresponds to the single dose which is lethal to 50% of the test animals) for the compound 1,3-bis(beta-ethylhexyl)-5-methyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine is 1630 mg./kg. orally in rats and 142 mg./kg. intraperitoneally in mice. The maximum daily tolerated dose of this exemplary pyri midine compound in the rate is 75-l00 mg./kg. Three groups of twenty rats each were given 0.02%, 0.05% and 0.1% by weight of l,3-bis(beta-ethylhexyl)-5-methyl-5- aminohexahydropyrimidine in their diet for a period of forty-eight weeks. No mortalities were observed in any of the three groups. Histopathology of these animals at six months showed no pathological lesions attributed to l,3-bis(beta-ethylhexyl) -5-methyl-5-arnino-hexahydropyrimidine. Further, repeated instillation of a saturated aqueous solution of 1,3-bis(beta-ethylhexyl)-S-methyl-5- amino-hexahydropyrimidine into rabbits eyes showed that this exemplary pyrimidine compound is not a primary irritant to delicate tissues.

The pyrimidine compounds of these novel therapeutic compositions have the formula:

wherein R is an alkyl, aryl, aralkyl, alkaryl, hydroxyalkyl, aminoalkyl or cycloalkyl radical and R is hydrogen, or a lower alkyl or hydroxymethyl radical. These compounds may be prepared by the method described in U. S. Patent 2,387,043. Among the S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine compounds which have been found elfectivc may be mentioned l,3-bismethyl-5-methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis(beta-ethylhexyl -5-methyl-5-amine-hexahydropyrimidine, l,3-bispropyl-S-rnethyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bisisopropyl-5-methyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, l,3-bisbutyl-5-methyl-5-aminohexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis(second ary butyl)-5-methyl- 5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, l,3-bis(tertiary butyl)-5' methyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bishexyl-5- methyl 5 amino hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bisheptyl- 5 -methyl-S -arnino-hexahydropyrirnidine, l ,3-bisocty1-5- methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bisdecyl5 methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, l,3-bisdodccyl-5- methyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bistetradecyl-S- methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bishexadecyl-5- methyl-5 -amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis( 1 -methylheptyl -5-methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis (1,3 dimethylbutyl) 5 methyl 5 amino hexahydropyrimidine, l,3-bis(tertiary butyl-Z-methyl)-5methyl-5- amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis (isopropyl-Z-methyl S-methyl-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis (hydroxy tertiary butyl)-S-methyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, l, 3 bis(isopropyl) 5 hydroxymethyl 5 amino hexahydropyrimidine, 1 ,3-bis fi-hydroxyethylaminopropyl) -5- methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, l,3-bis( 1,1-dimethyl 2 hydroxyethyl) 5 methyl 5 amino hexahydropyrimidine, l,3-bis(butylaminopropyl)-5-methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1 ,3-bis (beta-ethylhexyl) -5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1-,3-bis (beta-ethylhcxyl) -5 hydroxymethyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis (cyclohexyl)-5methyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3- bis(dicyclohexyl) 5 methyl 5 amino hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bistolyl-5methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bisbenzyl-5-methyl-Samino-hexahydropyrimh dine, l ,3-bis (methylbenzyl) -5 -methyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bisphenyl-5-methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1 ,3-bis (phenylethyl) -5-methyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis (beta-ethylhexyl) -5-ethyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrirnidine, l,3-bis-dodecyl-5-cthyl-5-aminohexahydropyrimidine, l,3-bis(hydroxy tertiary butyl)-5- ethyl-5-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, 1,3-bis(beta-ethylhexyl)-5-propyl-S-amino-hexahydropyrimidine, and 1,3- bis(beta ethylhexyl) 5 butyl 5 amino hexahydropyrimidine. It will be understood that other S-aminohexahydropyrirnidine compounds of the above-noted classes are also suitable for use in the compositions of the invention.

As stated above, in lieu of employing the S-aminohexahydropyrimidines above in the form of their free.

bases, the salts of these amine compounds may also be utilized. Salts are readily formed with acids such as, for example, acetic acid, phosphoric acid, boric acid, hydrochloric acid, maleic acid, benzoic acid, citric acid, malic acid, oxalic acid, tartaric acid, succinic acid, glutaric acid, gentisic acid, Valerie acid, gallic acid, ,S-resorcylic acid, acetyl salicylic acid and salicylic acid, as well as perchloric acid, barbituric acid, sulfanilic acid, phytic acid and p-nitro benzoic acid. These amines also form useful salts with long chain aliphatic acids such as stearic acid, palmitic acid, oleic acid, myristie acid, and lauric acid. The trihydrochloride, for example, is highly water soluble.

The therapeutic compositions of the present invention comprise a pyrimidine compound of the class described above and a pharmaceutical carrier which may be either a liquid or solid material. When used for dental purposes, these compositions include not only paste, powder and liquid dentifrices, but also mouthwashes, chewing gum, tablets, lozenges and troches. For other uses, these compositions include water washable ointments, non-water washable ointments, ophthalmic ointments, scalp lotions, nasal preparations including nasal jellies, nasal sprays and nasal drops, aerosols (for topical application in the treatment of fungi, for example), powders including foot powders and insufilation powders tablets and vaginal preparations including vaginal suppositories and suitable compositions for parenteral administration. Examples of solid pharmaceutical carriers include starch, gelatin, lactose, talc, boric acid and the like. Any of the conventional pharmaceutical carriers used in pharmaceutical practice may be utilized herein where such materials are compatible with the aforementioned pyrimidine compounds. These novel compositions may include a liquid pharmaceutical carrier and be in the form of solutions, dispersions, suspensions and the like. Although these pyrimidine compounds are relatively insoluble in water,

they may be readily dispersed in any surface active agent which is a solvent for the pyrimidine compounds or in any such agent, which, when added to water, gives a semi-' colloidal solution, for example, ethanolamine salts, polyvinylpyrrolidone and the complex sorbitol etherester sold under the trade-designation Tween 20 are satisfactory dispersing agents. Also, these pyrimidine compounds are soluble in oils such as peanut oil and organic solvents.

The percentage of the pyrimidine compound incorporated in the therapeutic compositions of the invention may be varied considerably, but we prefer to use an amount between approximately 0.01% by weight and 1% by weight. Amounts smaller than 0.01% by weight of one of the pyrimidine compounds may also be used in the practice of the invention.

In addition to one of the above-noted pyrimidine compounds, the dental compositions of the invention may include a water-soluble oxalate component, such as, for example, sodium, potassium and ammonium oxalates and the urea salts of oxalic acid. The amounts of oxalate component, when included in these compositions may be varied considerably, but a range of approximately 0.25% to approximately 1.5% by weight is preferred.
