Description

Field of the Invention



[0001] The present invention is directed to crystalline forms of 5-Chloro-N2-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-piperidin-4-yl-phenyl)-N4-[2-(propane-2-sulfonyl)-phenyl]-pyrimidine-2, 4-diamine, methods of making the same, pharmaceutical compositions comprising the same and this compound for use in methods of treatment.

Background



[0002] Polymorphism denotes the existence of more than one crystalline form of a substance. This ability of a chemical substance to crystallize in more than one crystalline form can have a profound effect on the shelf life, solubility, formulation properties, and processing properties of a drug. In addition, the action of a drug can be affected by the polymorphism of the drug molecule. Different polymorphs can have different rates of uptake in the body, leading to lower or higher biological activity than desired. In extreme cases, an undesired polymorph can even show toxicity. The occurrence of an unknown crystalline form during manufacture can have a significant impact.

[0003] Understanding and controlling polymorphism, then, gives a decided advantage in bringing new drugs to the marketplace. First and foremost, predicting any possible polymorphs for a drug product can be used to diminish the possibility of contamination during a drug's manufacture or storage by other polymorphic forms. Failure to catch contamination can have life-threatening consequences in some cases. Crystallizing an unintended polymorph during manufacture can mean weeks or even months of production downtime while scientists find and correct the cause of the new crystalline form or go through another round of testing to obtain approval for the new crystalline form.

[0004] Second, understanding which crystalline forms of a drug are possible in certain cases allows researchers to maximize the desired properties of a compound, such as solubility, formulation properties, processing properties, and shelf life. Understanding these factors early in the development of a new drug may mean a more active, more stable, or more cheaply manufactured drug.

[0005] The compound 5-Chloro-N2-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-piperidin-4-yl-phenyl)-N4-[2-(propane-2-sulfonyl)-phenyl]-pyrimidine-2, 4-diamine, in the form of a free base, of formula

is an anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) inhibitor, a member of the insulin receptor super family of receptor tyrosine kinases. Compound I was originally described in WO 2008/073687 A1 as Example 7, compound 66.

[0006] WO 2008/073687 A1, however, provides no information about crystalline forms of 5-Chloro-N2-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-piperidin-4-yl-phenyl)-N4-[2-(propane-2-sulfonyl)-phenyl]-pyrimidine-2, 4-diamine or its corresponding salts. Crystalline forms of 5-Chloro-N2-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-piperidin-4-yl-phenyl)-N4-[2-(propane-2-sulfonyl)-phenyl]-pyrimidine-2, 4-diamine have been discovered, which are useful in treating diseases which respond to inhibition of anaplastic lymphoma kinase activity, focal adhesion kinase (FAK), zeta-chain-associated protein kinase 70 (ZAP-70) insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1R or a combination thereof. The crystalline forms exhibit new physical properties that may be exploited in order to obtain new pharmacological properties, and that may be utilized in the drug product development of 5-Chloro-N2-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-piperidin-4-yl-phenyl)-N4-[2-(propane-2-sulfonyl)-phenyl]-pyrimidine-2, 4-diamine.

Detailed Description of the Invention



[0015] The compound 5-Chloro-N2-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-piperidin-4-yl-phenyl)-N4-[2-(propane-2-sulfonyl)-phenyl]-pyrimidine-2, 4-diamine is obtained in distinct crystalline forms. These "crystalline form(s)" (or "crystalline modification(s)" or "polymorphic form(s)" or "polymorph(s)", as the terms will be used interchangeably herein) differ with respect to thermodynamic stability, physical parameters, x-ray structure and methods of preparation. In addition, "amorphous" refers to a disordered solid state. It should be noted that different samples of a particular crystalline form will share the same major X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) peaks, but that there can be variation in powder patterns with regard to minor peaks. In addition, the term "about" with regard to XRPD maxima values (in degrees) generally means within 0.3°, more preferably within 0.2°, and most preferably within 0.1° of the given value. Alternatively, the term "about" means (in this and all contexts) within an accepted standard of error of the mean, when considered by one of ordinary skill in the art. The crystalline forms of 5-Chloro-N2-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-piperidin-4-yl-phenyl)-N4-[2-(propane-2-sulfonyl)-phenyl]-pyrimidine-2, 4-diamine as defined herein can be substantially pure. As used herein, the term "substantially pure" means that more than 80% of one crystalline form of 5-Chloro-N2-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-piperidin-4-yl-phenyl)-N4-[2-(propane-2-sulfonyl)-phenyl]-pyrimidine-2, 4-diamine or salt thereof is present or isolated, preferably at least 85%, more preferably at least 90%, and most preferably at least 95% of one of the crystalline forms described herein is present.

Form A of the free base is relatively non-hygroscopic at 84% relative humidity (RH) and exhibits minor increase in moisture uptake at 93% RH. It has good solubility at pH 1, fair solubility in water and good solubility in organic solvents (11 mg/mL in pH 1, 0.21 mg/mL in water and 40 mg/mL in methanol, respectively). It is converted to a hydrochloride salt (non-stoichiometric) in pH 1 (O.1N HCl) solution over 72 hour. The pH of 1% suspension in water is 6.86.

[0032] The at least one pharmaceutically acceptable carrier is in the form of a diluent, vehicle or excipient and can readily be selected by one of ordinary skill in the art and will be determined by the desired mode of administration.

[0035] The compound 2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-(piperdin-4-yl) aniline dihydrochloride (33.00 g, 85.25 mmol) and 2,5-dichloro-N-(2-(isopropyl sulfonyl)phenyl)pyrimidin-4-amine (32.53 g) was added to a 3-necked 500-mL round-bottomed flask equipped with mechanical stirring, thermocouple, reflux condenser and N2 inlet-outlet. A solvent, 2-propanol (255.0 g, 325 mL), was added and the mixture to heated to reflux at 82±2 °C and stirred for at least 14 hours. The mixture was cooled to 22±3 °C over 1 hour and stirred at 22±3 °C for 3 hours. The resulting solids were filtered and rinsed with 3 x 40 g (3 x 51 mL) of 2-propanol. The solids were dried at 50±5 °C/10 mbar for 16 hours to yield 44.63 g of 5-chloro-N-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-(piperidin-4-ylphenyl)-N-2-(isopropylsulfonyl)phenyl)-2,4-diamine di-hydrochloride salt. Chemical Purity (as determined by HPLC): 97.3%. Corrected yield: 71.6%. LOD = 11.60%. The dihydrochloride salt was recrystallized using acetone:water (10: 1,v/v). Chemical Purity (as determined by HPLC): 98.8%.

The mixture was heated to 55 ± 3 °C in about 20 minutes to obtain a clear solution. The hot solution was filtered and 2.6 g of acetone and water was added to the mixture. While heating was maintained, 14.69 g (about 58% by weight) of aqueous NaOH solution was added over a period of about 0.5 hour. The reaction mixture was maintained at 55 ± 3 °C for an additional 2 hours to yield an off-white slurry. An additional 10.82 g (about 58% by weight) of aqueous NaOH solution was added to the hot solution over a period of 1.5 hours to yield a thick off-white slurry. The slurry was cooled to 20 ± 3 °C over a period of about 45 minutes and 47.0 g of deionized (DI) water was added over about 30 minutes and the off-white slurry was stirred at 20 ± 3 °C for 1 hour. The slurry was filtered and rinsed with 2 x 25.0 g of DI water. The wet cake was dried about 17 hours in a vacuum oven at 50 ± 3 °C and 10 mbar under a N2 purge to yield 6.06 g off-white or tan solid, 5.30 g of 5-chloro-N-(2-isopropoxy-5-methyl-4-(piperidin-4-yl) phenyl)-N-(2-(isopropylsulfonyl)phenyl)-2,4-diamine.
