CEINKCOB 4' o This invention relates to the ynthesis of 3'-4'- l Pk dideoxykanamycin B which is antibacterial and especially active against infection of kanamycin-resistant at a' o organisms. This invention is based on the findings disozi covered by a series of researches done by H. Umezawa et al., who cleared the mechanism of the drug-inactivation by the resistant bacteria isolated from patents and who then pursued to find, based on the mechanism, l new antibiotic derivatives active against drug-resistant z m bacteria.
Hamao Umezawa et al. [reported in Science," 157, 1559 (1967)] found that drug-resistant gram-negative cmN=cH1v bacteria carrying R factor of patent-origin, resistant 4 Staphyococci and resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa o k produced enzymes that inactivate kanamycin by transi ferring phosphate from ATP to 3'-hydroxyl group of M33! l kanamycin.

Therefore, it was roughly concluded Y represented by that the replacement of the hydroxyl group, which is phosphorylated by resistant bacteria, with hydrogen will give the antibiotic a character to attack the resistant bacteria. The inventors applied the principle to kanamycin B and highly active 3',4-dideoxykanamycin B (the formula is shown below) was prepared. (in which A and B respectively alkyl or aryl group) or I NH:

R, R, Y, Z and Z are the same with that described in the General Formula 1 or I. shown in the General Formula 11 (W SO Q. 01a]- 1, aralkyl or aryl group, in which 3' and 4-hydroxyl 'oups are sulfonylated. The derivative (11) (W D Q) is then treated by the procedure described by itson et a1. (Carbohydrate Research, volume 1, pages 58 to 340, 1965), i.e., treated with iodide ion and a etal powder having reducing property such as zinc 1st in an appropriate solvent giving the derivative hav g a 3',4'-unsaturation group. The protecting groups the resulting derivative, after hydrogenation of the isaturation group, are removed by an usual manner to ve the final product, 3',4'-dideoxykanamycin B. The synthesized 3',4'-dideoxykanamycin B inhibits .e growth of many kinds of bacterial strains in the sim- 11' order with that of kanamycin B as shown in Table and moreover inhibits the growth of strains of kanaycin and kanamycin B resistant Staphylococci, resis- .nt Echerichia coli and resistant Pseudomonas aerugi- )sa. 3',4'-dideoxykanamycin B shows the therapeutic feet against the infections caused by Staphylococci, lebsiella pneumoniae, Salmonella typhosa dn Pseudoonas aeruginosa in mice. 3,4'-dideoxykanamycin B as low toxicity (LD 180 mg./kg. mouse, -iv.) and lOWS high blood level after the injection, thus proving 1e derivative to be a valuable chemotherapeutic agent Ir treatment of many kinds of infections including lose cause by gram-negative and gram-positive resisnt bacteria. It shows the strong effect in inhibiting microorganms including pathogenic organism as shown below.
TABLE 1 in the next, examples of the preparation of 3',4'- dideoxykanamycin B are shown. Since 3',4'-dideoxykanamycin B synthesized was proved effective for the remedy of a wide variety of infections, this invention is not limited to the preparations of 3',4'-dideoxykanamycin B as shown in examples, but includes all modified procedures, which are recognized as usual.
