SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The compounds having the formula ##STR8## in which R1 is H, phenyl or (lower)alkyl, R2 and R3 when alike are H, chloro, bromo, fluoro, (lower)alkyl, hydroxy or (lower)alkoxy, R2 and R3 when different are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, SO3 H, CF3, hydroxy, nitro, amino, phenyl or (lower)alkyl of 1 to 3 carbon atoms or (lower)alkoxy of 1 to 3 carbon atoms, or when taken together R2 and R3 are methylenedioxy or the residue of a phenyl ring, and n is an integer of 1 or 2; or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof are hypotensive, blood platelet antiaggregative and/or bronchodilator agents.

DETAILED DESCRIPTON

This invention relates to new synthetic compounds of value as hypotensive and blood platelet antiaggregative agents. Most particularly the compounds of the invention are 1,2,3,5-tetrahydroimidazo-[2,1-b]-quinazolin-2-ones having the formula ##STR9## or 6-[H]-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrimido-[2,1-b]-quinazolin-2-ones having the formula ##STR10## in which R1 is H, phenyl or (lower)alkyl, R2 and R3 when alike are H, chloro, bromo, fluoro, hydroxy or (lower)alkyl of 1 to 3 carbons or (lower)alkoxy of 1 to 3 carbon atoms, R2 and R3 when different are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, CF3, SO3 H, (lower)-alkyl, hydroxy, nitro, amino, (lower)alkoxy or phenyl, or when taken together R2 and R3 are methylenedioxy or the residue of a phenyl ring; or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

Hypertension is a rather common and serious disease, particularly in elderly people. High blood pressure, a result of hypertension, is a common but serious disease. Most particularly, hypertension is often the cause of crippling or fatal strokes in the elderly. It was therefore an object of the present invention to provide compounds useful in the treatment of mild to severe hypertension.

Subsequent to the preparation of some of the compounds of the present invention, it was found that most of the compounds also possessed unique properties as blood platelet anti-aggregative agents. These compounds are useful in the prevention of intravascular thrombosis, prevention of coronary thrombosis, prevention of transient ischemic episodes, prevention of platelet thrombosis in the use of prosthetic devises (artificial heart valves, etc.). A large number of the compounds of the present invention have also been found to possess desirable bronchodilator activity in mammals.

The objects of the present invention have been achieved by the provision of the compound having the formula ##STR11## in which R1, R2 and R3 are as defined above.

For the purpose of this disclosure, the compounds of the present invention are represented as having the formulas Ia and Ib. However, compounds Ia and Ib can exist in several possible tautomeric forms, e.g.: ##STR12##

All the possible tautomers are considered an integral part of the present invention and all these forms are considered included when the compounds are represented as formula Ia or Ib.

Also considered an integral part of this invention are the optical isomers of those compounds having an asymetric center, e.g., (+) and (-)-5,6-dimethyl-1,2,3,5-tetrahydroimidazo[2,1-b]-quinazolin-2-one. The racemic mixture of these compounds are resolved by those methods commonly known in the art.

The nontoxic salts that are pharmaceutically acceptable include the hydrochlorides, hydrobromides, hydroiodides, (lower)alkylsulfates, (lower)-alkyl and aryl sulfonates, phosphates, sulfates, maleates, fumarates, succinates, tartrates, citrates, and other commonly used in the art.

The salts obtained through the variation of the acid used in some cases have special advantage due to increased stability, increased solubility, decreased solubility, ease of crystallization, lack of objectionable taste, etc., but these are all subsidiary to the main physiological action of the free base, which is independent of the character of the acid used in the preparation of the salt.

Most of the compounds of the present invention can be prepared as shown in Chart I. ##STR13## R1, R2 and R3 and n are as defined above and R4 is (lower)alkyl.

In other cases, particularly when R2 or R3 is a bromine or NO2, it may be desirable to brominate or nitrate after producing compound I (see examples).

Two alternative processes for the preparation of the compounds of the instant invention are found in Charts II and III. In some instances, these are the preferred synthetic route. ##STR14##

Compounds possessing a substituent at positions 5 and 6 are preferably prepared by the synthetic route illustrated by Chart II.

The objectives of the present invention have been achieved by the provision according to the present invention, of the process for the synthesis of compounds having the formula ##STR15## in which R1 is H, phenyl or (lower)alkyl, R2 and R3 when alike are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, hydroxy or (lower)alkyl of 1 to 3 carbon atoms or (lower)alkoxy of 1 to 3 carbon atoms, R2 and R3 when different are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, CF3, SO3 H, hydroxy, nitro, amino, phenyl or (lower)alkyl or (lower)alkoxy or when taken together R2 and R3 are methylenedioxy or the residue of a phenyl ring, and n is an integer of 1 or 2; which process comprises the consecutive steps of

1. reducing one mole of compound III, preferably with a noble metal catalyst, particularly 5% palladium on carbon, in the presence of hydrogen under positive pressure until three moles of hydrogen are absorbed, in an organic solvent, preferably a (lower)alkanol such as ethanol, n-propanol, isopropanol and the like to produce a compound having the formula ##STR16## in which R1, R2, R3, R4 are n are as defined above; and 2. treating one mole of compound IV with at least one mole of cyanogen bromide, but preferably about 1.0 to 2.0 moles, and most preferably about 1.0 to 1.1 moles, in a reaction inert organic solvent, i.e., a (lower)alkanol, preferably ethanol, n-propanol, isopropanol, with or without the presence of some water, with the aid of heat, preferably at about reflux temperatures, to produce compound I.

The pharmaceutically acceptable, nontoxic salts of compound I are readily prepared by the addition of stoichiometric (or larger quantities) of the desired acid to a solution of compound I. Since compound I has only one strongly basic grouping, it only forms monosalts, e.g., monohydrochloride.

A preferred embodiment of the present invention is the compound having the formula ##STR17## in which R1 is H, phenyl or (lower)alkyl, R2 and R3 when alike are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, hydroxy, (lower)alkoxy of 1 to 3 carbon atoms or (lower)alkyl of 1 to 3 carbon atoms, R2 and R3 when different are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, CF3, SO3 H, hydroxy, phenyl, amino, nitro, (lower)alkyl or (lower)alkoxy or when taken together R2 and R3 are methylenedioxy or the residue of a phenyl ring (--C═CH--CH═CH--), and n is an integer of 1 or 2; or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

A more preferred embodiment is the compound having the formula ##STR18## in which R1 is H, phenyl or (lower)alkyl, R2 and R3 when different are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, cluoro, CF3, SO3 H, (lower)alkyl or (lower)alkoxy, hydroxy, nitro, amino, or phenyl, R2 and R3 when alike are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, hydroxy, (lower)alkyl of 1 to 3 carbon atoms or (lower)alkoxy of 1 to 3 carbon atoms, or when taken together R2 and R3 are methylenedioxy or the residue of a phenyl ring (--CH═CH--CH═CH--), and n is an integer of 1 or 2; or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

A more preferred embodiment is the compound having the formula ##STR19##

in which R1 is H, phenyl or (lower)alkyl, R2 and R3 when different are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, CF3, SO3 H, hydroxy, (lower)alkyl or (lower)alkoxy, nitro, amino or phenyl, R2 and R3 when alike are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, hydroxy, (lower)alkyl of 1 to 3 carbon atoms or (lower)alkoxy of 1 to 3 carbon atoms, or when taken together R2 and R3 are methylenedioxy or the residue of a phenyl ring (--CH═CH--CH═CH--); or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

A still more preferred embodiment is the compound having the formula ##STR20## in which R2 and R3 when differnt are hydrogen, CF3, SO3 H, chloro, bromo, fluoro, nitro, amino, hydroxy, (lower)alkoxy or (lower)alkyl, R2 and R3 when alike are hydrogen, chloro, bromo, fluoro, hydroxy, (lower)alkyl of 1 to 3 carbon atoms or (lower)alkoxy of 1 to 3 carbon atoms, or when taken together R2 and R3 are methylenedioxy or the residue of a phenyl ring (--CH═CH--CH═CH--); or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

A most preferred embodiment is the compound having the formula ##STR21## in which R2 and R3 are alike or different and are H, hydroxy, (lower)alkyl of 1 to 3 carbon atoms or (lower)alkoxy of 1 to 3 carbon atoms, chloro or fluoro; or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

Another more preferred embodiment is the compound having the formula ##STR22## in which R2 and R3 are alike or different and are H, Cl, methoxy, methyl, nitro or hydroxy and R1 is H, phenyl or methyl; or the hydrochloride salt thereof.

The most preferred embodiments are the compounds of formula IM in which

1. R1, R2 and R3 are H;

2. R2 and R3 are methoxy and R1 is H;

3. R1 and R2 are H and R3 is methoxy;

4. R2 is methoxy and R1 and R3 are H;

5. R1 and R2 are H and R3 is methyl;

6. R2 is methyl and R1 and R3 are H;

7. R2 and R3 are methyl and R1 is H;

8. R2 and R3 taken together are --CH═CH--CH═CH-- and R1 is H;

9. R2 is NO2, R3 is methyl and R1 is H; or the hydrochloride salts thereof;

10. R2 is chloro, R3 is methyl and R1 is H; or the hydrochloride salt thereof;

11. R1 and R3 are CH3 and R2 is H; or the hydrochloride salt thereof.

For the purpose of this disclosure, the term (lower)alkyl shall mean straight and branched chain saturated aliphatic groups having 1 to 6 carbons inclusive unless otherwise stated. The term (lower)alkanol or (lower)alkoxy shall have the same connotation, an alcohol or alkoxy group of 1 to 6 carbons inclusive unless otherwise stated.

Pharmacological evaluation has indicated the compounds of the present invention possess hypotensive activity.

The blood pressure of unanesthetized rats and dogs was measured directly by means of a transducer attached to an intra-arterial cannula and in anesthetized dogs by a mercury manometer attached to a carotid cannula.

The compounds of the instant invention were tested as the hydrochloride salts by the above method in genetically hypertensive rats in doses of 50 mg./kg. orally.

At the present time, indications are that the compounds do not appear to be acting in the same way as 2-(2,6-dichloroanilino)-2-imidazoline hydrochloride ["CATAPRES"]. Their activity is probably not attributable to α-adrenergic blockade or to ganglionic blocking action.

In the treatment of hypertension in animals including man, the compounds of the present invention are administered orally and/or parenterally, in accordance with conventional procedures for the administration of hypotensive agents in an amount of from about 0.5 mg./kg./dose to 30 mg./kg./dose depending upon the route of administration and the particular compound of the invention. The preferred dosage for the compounds of the invention is in the range of about 1.0 to 15.0 mg./kg./dose two to four times a day.

Pharmacological evaluation has also indicated the compounds of the present invention possess blood platelet anti-aggregative activity.

The aggregometer method of Born (1), as modified by Mustard et al. (2) was used to assess the in vitro activity of the various compounds as to inhibition of adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and collagen induced platelet aggregation. Platelet rich plasma was separated by centrifugation from citrated (3.8 percent) rabbit blood. ADP in final concentration of 0.5 mcg./ml. or 0.05 ml. of a collagen suspension prepared according to the method described by Evans et al. (3) was used to induce aggregation. The various compounds tested were dissolved in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) so that 5 mcl. added to the platelet rich plasma would yield the desired test concentration. Vehicle control trials were done and compared with aggregation induced in platelet rich plasma containing various concentrations of the test compounds. Dose response curves were obtained and Effective Concentration (EC50) values calculated.

*In vivo/In vitro testing:

Before dosing the animals, blood samples are taken. The blood is centrifuged to obtain the blood platelet-rich plasma. Aggregation of this plasma is induced with ADP or collagen. This is the control.

The animals are then dosed with the compounds to be tested (orally or parenterally). Depending upon the route of administration, 1 to 2 hours are allowed to elapse after dosing. Blood is drawn and the same procedure employed as for the control in untreated animals.

The dose required to produce 50% inhibition of the aggregation is determined by dose response data obtained in this manner.

Experimental

All products described are supported by satisfactory infrared (IR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (nmr) spectra. Melting points are uncorrected. Temperatures are expressed in degrees Centigrade (C.) and pressures in millimeters of mercury (mm).

EXAMPLE 1 Preparation of N-(o-Nitrobenzyl)ethyl glycine

To a suspension of 55.9 g. (4.010-1 moles) of ethyl glycine hydrochloride in 300 ml. of absolute ethyl alcohol was slowly added (5 minutes) under a nitrogen atmosphere a solution of 70 ml. (5.010-1 moles) of triethylamine in 200 ml. of absolute ethyl alcohol. The mixture was heated to reflux and a solution of 17.2 g. (1.010-1 moles)o-nitrobenzylchloride in 200 ml. of absolute ethyl alcohol was added over a 1.5 hour period. Upon complete addition, the mixture was allowed to reflux for 18 hours, cooled to room temperature and the solvent removed in vacuo. To the solid residue was added 500 ml. of water and enough 10% hydrochloric acid to make the solution acidic (pH3). The acidic solution was washed with methylene chloride (2150 ml.), made neutral (pH7) by the addition of saturated sodium bicarbonate and the insoluble oil extracted with methylene chloride (2250 ml). The methylene chloride extracts were combined, washed with water (250 ml.), dried (K2 CO3) and the solvent removed in vacuo resulting in a yellow oil. Owing to the instability of the oil toward distillation, the compound was used as such in subsequent reaction.

EXAMPLE 2 Preparation of N-(o-Aminobenzyl)ethyl glycine.

To a solution of 13.0 g. (5.4610-2 moles) of N-(o-nitrobenzyl)ethyl glycine in 200 ml. of absolute ethyl alcohol was added slowly 0.76 g. (5% by weight) of 10% Pd/C catalyst and the mixture placed on a Paar hydrogenator. The mixture was shaken until theoretical hydrogen (16.410-2 moles) had been absorbed, removed from the Paar and the mixture filtered under suction. The catalyst was washed with ethyl alcohol and the solvent removed in vacuo affording a yellow oil. Purification of the oil was effected by distillation yielding 8.8 g. (77% yield) of a colorless oil; b.p. 124-126 C. (0.03 mm).

EXAMPLE 3 Preparation of 1,2,3,5-tetrahydroimidazo [2,1-b]-quinazolin-2-one (1).

To a solution of 6.24 g. (3.010-2 moles) of N-(o-aminobenzyl)ethyl glycinate in 150 ml. of 95% ethyl alcohol was poured at room temperature a solution of 3.19 g. (3.010-2 moles) of cyanogen bromide in 30 ml. of 95% ethyl alcohol. The mixture was allowed to stir at room temperature for 15 minutes, heated to reflux for 18 hours, cooled to room temperature and the solvent removed in vacuo. To the resulting semi-solid mass was added 200 ml. of water and it was made basic (pH 10) by the addition of a saturated sodium bicarbonate solution. After stirring for 0.5 hours at room temperature, the precipitate was filtered, washed with water and dried under high vacuum/P2 O5 resulting in 3.33 g. (65% yield) of a colorless powder, mp. >285 C. Purification could be effected by crystallization from hot dimethylformamide or by formation of the hydrochloride salt from acetonitrile/ether solvent pair.

EXAMPLE 7 Ethyl β-(o-Nitrobenzylamino)-propionate (see J.A.C.S., 80, 1168 (1958)

o-Nitrobenzylamine hydrochloride (20.4 g., 0.114 mole) was dissolved in a minimum volume of water and the solution was made strongly basic by addition of 10% sodium hydroxide. The clear oil which formed was extracted into two 120-ml. portions of ether. The ether was dried with 10 g. of anhydrous sodium sulfate, filtered, and finally dried over Drierite. The dried solution was filtered and evaporated, leaving a yellow oil. The oil was dissolved in 100 ml. of absolute ethanol and 11.4 g (0.114 mole) of freshly distilled ethyl acrylate was added. This solution was allowed to stand overnight and the solvent removed by distillation from a steam-cone. The oily residue was dissolved in 200 ml. of dry ether, the solution was cooled in an ice bath, and treated with dry hydrogen chloride. When precipitation was complete, the solid was filtered and dissolved in 120 ml. of boiling absolute ethanol. The hydrochloride crystallized from this solution on cooling yielding 20.7 g. of the aminopropionate hydrochloride, m.p. 137.5-139.0. By concentrating and cooling the mother liquor, an additional 5 g. was obtained, m.p. 136.5-138.5, and by repeating this operation 1.1 g., m.p. 136-139, was obtained, raising the total yield to 26.8 g. (81.4%). The analytical sample was prepared by repeated crystallization from absolute ethanol to give a melting point of 138.5-139.0.
