    Description


    [0001] This application claims the benefit of Indian Provisional Patent Application No. 1262/CHE/2012 dated 30th March 2012.

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION



    [0002] The present invention provides compounds useful as protein kinase modulators, methods of preparing them, pharmaceutical compositions containing them and methods of treatment, prevention and/or amelioration of kinase mediated diseases or disorders with them.

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION



    [0003] In the recent past, immense research has been dedicated to the discovery and understanding of the structure and functions of enzymes and bio-molecules associated with various diseases. One such important class of enzymes that has been the subject of extensive research is protein kinase.

    [0004] In general, protein kinases represent a set of structurally related phosphoryl transferases having conserved structures and catalytic functions. These enzymes modify proteins by chemically adding phosphate groups (phosphorylation). Phosphorylation involves the removal of a phosphate group from ATP and covalently attaching it to amino acids that have a free hydroxyl group such as serine, threonine or tyrosine. Phosphorylation usually results in a functional change of the target protein (substrate) by altering enzyme activity, cellular localization or association with other proteins. Up to 30% of all proteins may be modified by kinase activity.

    [0005] This class of proteins are classified into subsets depending upon the substrate they act upon, such as tyrosine kinase, serine/theronine kinase, histidine kinase and the like. These proteins can also be classified based on their localization into receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) or non-receptor tyrosine kinases.

    [0006] Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) have an extracellular portion, a transmembrane domain, and an intracellular portion, while non-receptor tyrosine kinases are entirely intracellular. Receptor tyrosine kinase mediated signal transduction is typically initiated by an extracellular interaction with a specific growth factor (ligand), followed by receptor dimerization, stimulation of the intrinsic protein tyrosine kinase activity, and phosphorylation of amino acid residues. The ensuing conformational change leads to the formation of complexes with a spectrum of cytoplasmic signalling molecules and facilitates a myriad of responses such as cell division, differentiation, metabolic effects, and changes in the extracellular microenvironment.

    [0007] At present, at least twenty (20) distinct RTK subfamilies have been identified. One subfamily of the RTKs is designated as the Met subfamily (c-Met, Ron and Sea). For a detailed discussion of protein kinases, see, Plowman et al., DN&P 7(6): 334-339, 1994, Blume-Jensen, P. et al., Nature, 2001, 411(6835):355-365 and Manning, G. et al., Science, 2002, 298(5600): 1912- 1934.

    [0008] Kinases have also been classified either based on the pathway or the diseases in which they are involved (visit:www.reactionbiology.com/pages/kinase.htm). c-Met has been identified as involved in oncogenesis.

    [0009] Protein kinases exert their physiological functions through phosphorylation of proteins (or substrates) thereby modulating the cellular activities of the substrate in various biological contexts. Protein kinases are known to control a wide variety of biological processes such as cell growth, survival and differentiation, organ formation and morphogenesis, neovascularisation, tissue repair and regeneration. In addition to their functions in normal tissues/organs, many protein kinases also play specialized roles in a host of human diseases including cancer. A subset of protein kinases (also referred to as oncogenic protein kinases), when dysregulated, can cause tumor formation and growth and contribute to tumor maintenance and progression (Blume- Jensen P et al, Nature, 2001, 411(6835):355-365). Thus far, oncogenic protein kinases represent one of the largest and most attractive groups of protein targets for therapeutic intervention and drug development.

    [0010] Both receptor and non-receptor protein kinases have been found to be attractive targets for small molecule drug discovery due to their impact on cell physiology and signalling. Dysregulation of protein kinase activity thus leads to altered cellular responses including uncontrolled cell growth associated with cancer. In addition to oncological indications, altered kinase signalling is implicated in numerous other pathological diseases. These include, but are not limited to immunological disorders, cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory diseases, and degenerative diseases.

    [0011] A significant number of tyrosine kinases (both receptor and nonreceptor) are associated with cancer (see Madhusudan S, Ganesan TS. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors in cancer therapy. Clin. Biochem., 2004, 37(7):618-35.). Clinical studies suggest that over expression or dysregulation of tyrosine kinases may also be of prognostic value. For example, members of the HER family of RTKs have been implicated in breast, colorectal, head and neck and lung cancer. Mutation of c-Kit tyrosine kinase is associated with decreased survival in gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). In acute myelogenous leukemia, Flt-3 mutation predicts shorter disease free survival. VEGFR expression, which is important for tumor angiogenesis, is associated with a lower survival rate in lung cancer. Tie-1 kinase expression is inversely correlated to survival in gastric cancer. BCR-AbI expression is an important predictor of response in chronic myelogenous leukemia while Src tyrosine kinase expression is co-related to the stage of colorectal cancer.

    [0012] Modulation (particularly inhibition) of cell proliferation and angiogenesis, the two key cellular processes needed for tumor growth and survival is an attractive goal for development of small-molecule drugs (Matter A. Drug Disc. Technol., 2001, 6, 1005-1024). Anti-angiogenic therapy represents a potentially important approach for the treatment of solid tumors and other diseases associated with dysregulated vascularisation including ischemic coronary artery disease, diabetic retinopathy, psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. Similarly, cell antiproliferative agents are desirable to slow or inhibit the growth of tumors.

    [0013] Some of the kinases implicated in cancer are c-Met, RON (recepteur d'origine nantais) receptor, Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) receptor, Epidermal growth factor receptor kinase (EGF-R kinase), Eph receptors, c-Kit, and Flt-3.

    [0014] A number of small molecule kinase modulators have found their way into the clinic which either act selectively on either one or multiple kinases. These include Gefitinib (AstraZeneca), a EGFR kinase inhibitor; Gleevec (Novartis), a dual c-Kit and AbI kinase inhibitor approved for the treatment of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) and gastrointestinal stroma cancers; Dasatinib (BMS), a dual BCR/ABL and Src family tyrosine kinases inhibitor, and Sunitinib (Pfizer) a multi kinase inhibitor targeting PDGF-R,VEGF-R, RET, KIT(CD117), CSF-1R and flt-3.

    [0015] The kinase, c-Met, is the prototypic member of a subfamily of heterodimeric receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) which include Met, Ron and Sea (see Birchmeier, C. et al., Nat. Rev. Mol. Cell Biol., 2003, 4(12):915-925; Christensen, J. G. et al., Cancer Lett., 2005, 225(1): 1-26). Expression of c-Met occurs in a wide variety of cell types including epithelial, endothelial and mesenchymal cells where activation of the receptor induces cell migration, invasion, proliferation and other biological activities associated with "invasive cell growth." As such, signal transduction through c-Met receptor activation is responsible for many of the characteristics of tumor cells.

    [0016] The only high affinity endogenous ligand for c-Met is the hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), also known as scatter factor (SF). Binding of HGF to c-Met induces activation of the receptor via autophosphorylation resulting in an increase of receptor dependent signalling, which promotes cell growth and invasion. Both c-Met and HGF are widely expressed in a variety of organs, but their expression is normally confined to cells of epithelial and mesenchymal origin. Anti-HGF antibodies or HGF antagonists have been shown to inhibit tumor metastasis in vivo (see, Maulik et al., Cytokine & Growth Factor Reviews, 2002, 13, 41-59). The biological functions of c-Met (or c-Met signalling pathway) in normal tissues and human malignancies such as cancer have been well documented (Christensen, J.G. et al., Cancer Lett., 2005, 225(1): 1-26; Corso, S. et al., Trends in Mol. Med., 2005, ll (6):284-292).

    [0017] Tumor growth progression involves the recruitment of new blood vessels into the tumor as well as invasion, adhesion and proliferation of malignant cells. c-Met over expression has been demonstrated on a wide variety of tumor types including breast, colon, renal, lung, squamous cell myeloid leukemia, hemangiomas, melanomas, astrocytomas, and glioblastomas. Additionally activating mutations in the kinase domain of c-Met have been identified in hereditary and sporadic renal papilloma and squamous cell carcinoma. See Maulik et al Cytokine & growth Factor reviews 2002, 13, 41-59; Longati et al Curr Drug Targets 2001, 2, 41-55; Funakoshi et al Clinica Chimica Acta 2003 1-23. Thus modulation of c-Met offers an attractive opportunity to target key oncogenic processes thus limiting cell proliferation, survival and metastasis.

    [0018] Dysregulated c-Met pathway is linked to tumor formation, growth, maintenance and progression (Birchmeier, C. et al., Nat. Rev. Mol. Cell. Biol. 2003, 4(12):915-925; Boccaccio, C. et al., Nat. Rev. Cancer 2006, 6(8):637-645; Christensen, J.G. et al., Cancer Lett. 2005, 225(1): 1-26). HGF and/or c-Met are over expressed in significant portions of most human cancers, and are often associated with poor clinical outcomes such as more aggressive disease, disease progression, tumor metastasis and shortened patient survival. Further, patients with high levels of HGF/c-Met proteins are more resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In addition to abnormal HGF/c-Met expression, the c-Met receptor can also be activated in cancer patients through genetic mutations (both germline and somatic) and gene amplification. Although gene amplification and mutations are the most common genetic alterations that have been reported in patients, the receptor can also be activated by deletions, truncations, and gene rearrangement, as well as abnormal receptor processing and defective negative regulatory mechanisms.

    [0019] The various cancers in which c-Met is implicated include but are not limited to carcinomas (e.g., bladder, breast, cervical, cholangiocarcinoma, colorectal, esophageal, gastric, head and neck, kidney, liver, lung, nasopharygeal, ovarian, pancreas, prostate, thyroid); musculoskeletal sarcomas (e.g., osteosarcaoma, synovial sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma); soft tissue sarcomas (e.g., MFH/fibrosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, Kaposi's sarcoma); hematopoietic malignancies (e.g., multiple myeloma, lymphomas, adult T cell leukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, chronic myeloid leukemia); and other neoplasms (e.g., glioblastomas, astrocytomas, melanoma, mesothelioma and Wilm's tumor (www.vai.org/met/; Christensen, J.G. et al., Cancer Lett. 2005, 225(1): 1-26). c-Met inhibitors may also be useful in preventative and adjuvant therapy settings. In addition, certain cancers (e.g., papillary renal cell carcinoma, and some gastric and lung cancers) may be treated with c-Met inhibitors as they are believed to be driven by c-Met mutation/genetic alteration and dependent on c-Met for growth and survival. These cancers are expected to be sensitive to treatment.

    [0020] The notion that activated c-Met contributes to tumor formation and progression and could therefore be a potential target for effective cancer intervention has been further validated by numerous preclinical studies (Birchmeier, C. et al., Nat. Rev. Mol. Cell Biol. 2003, 4(12):915-925; Christensen, J.G. et al., Cancer Lett. 2005, 225(1): 1-26; Corso, S. et al., Trends in Mol. Med. 2005, 11(6):284- 292). For example, studies have demonstrated that the tpr-met fusion gene, over expression of c-Met, and activated c-Met mutations caused oncogenic transformation of various model cell lines and resulted in tumor formation and metastasis in mice. Conversely, significant anti-tumor and anti-metastasis activities have been demonstrated in vitro and in vivo with agents that specifically impair and/or block HGF/c-Met signalling. Those agents include anti-HGF and anti-c-Met antibodies, HGF peptide antagonists, decoy c-Met receptor, c-Met peptide antagonists, dominant negative c-Met mutations, c-Met specific antisense oligonucleotides and ribozymes, and selective small molecule c-Met kinase inhibitors (Christensen, J.G. et al., Cancer Lett. 2005, 225(1): 1-26). In addition to its established role in cancer, abnormal HGF/c-Met signalling is also implicated in atherosclerosis, lung fibrosis, renal fibrosis and regeneration, liver diseases, allergic disorders, inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, cerebrovascular diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and conditions associated with organ transplantation. See Ma, H. et al., Atherosclerosis. 2002, 164(1):79-87; Crestani, B. et al., Lab. Invest. 2002, 82(8): 1015-1022; Sequra-Flores, A.A. et al., Rev. Gastroenterol. Mex. 2004, 69(4)243-250; Morishita, R. et al., Curr. Gene Ther. 2004, 4(2)199-206; Morishita, R. et al., Endocr. J. 2002, 49(3)273-284; Liu, Y., Curr. Opin. Nephrol. Hypertens. 2002, 1 1 (1):23-30; Matsumoto, K. et al., Kidney Int. 2001, 59(6):2023-2038; Balkovetz, D.F. et al., Int. Rev. Cytol. 1999, 186:225-250; Miyazawa, T. et al., J. Cereb. Blood Flow Metab. 1998, 18(4)345-348; Koch, A.E. et al., Arthritis Rheum. 1996, 39(9):1566-1575; Futamatsu, H. et al., Circ. Res. 2005, 96(8)823- 830; Eguchi, S. et al., Clin. Transplant. 1999, 13(6)536-544.

    [0021] c-Met is thus an attractive target from a clinical perspective mainly because of its upstream localisation which aids in early detection and limiting metastasis and implications in the growth and metastases of most types of cancers. These observations suggest that c-Met kinase inhibitors would be an effective treatment for tumors driven by c-Met, and also would prevent disseminated micrometastases from further progression.

    [0022] A family of novel compounds have been discovered which exhibit c-Met modulating ability and have an ameliorating effect against disorders related to abnormal c-Met activity such as Johnson & Johnson's JNJ-38877605, Amgen's AMG-458, Eisai's E-7050 and Pfizer's PF-04217903. However, to date, none of them have been used in a clinical study.





    [0023] More recently Dussault et. al., Anti-Cancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry, 2009, 9(2), 221-229, have provided additional insight about a receptor tyrosine kinase namely, RON (recepteur d'origine nantais) which is closely related to c-Met. Both c-MET and RON receptors upon activation can induce cell migration, invasion, proliferation and survival. Moreover, both possess oncogenic activity in vitro and in vivo and are often dysregulated in human cancers.

    [0024] While c-Met is now a well-accepted target for anti-cancer treatment, less is known about the role of RON in cancer. Despite their common attributes, c-Met and RON are activated by different mechanisms in cancer cells. Due to a significant homology between the two RTKs, some small molecule kinase inhibitors of c-Met have inhibitory activity on RON suggesting that both receptors might be involved in cancer progression. The review (Dussault et al., supra) discusses the relevance of both c-Met and RON deregulation in human cancers and the progress made in identifying small molecule kinase inhibitors that can block the activity of these targets in vitro and in animal models. One of the compounds discussed in the review, AMG-458, inhibited c-Met and RON with IC50s of 4 and 9 nM respectively.

    [0025] Various research groups around the world such as Amgen, Arquel, AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Exelixis, Eisai, Incyte, MethylGene, Pfizer, SGX Pharma, SmithKline Beecham, Schering, Vertex, Xcovery, Novartis and others have been working on targeting either single, dual or multiple kinase targets.

    [0027] International Publication Nos. WO 2009/058728, WO 2009/058729, WO 2009/058730 and WO 2009/058739 all assigned to Schering Corporation disclose a series of thiazole carboxamide compounds as protein kinase inhibitors and more specifically to be inhibiting Aurora, MEK1 and/or CDK2 kinases.

    [0028] Further review and literature disclosure on protein kinase molecules have been given by Isabelle Dussault et.al.,(see; Anti-Cancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry, 2009, 9, 221-229), Ted L. Underiner et.al.,(see; Anti-Cancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry, 2010, 10, 7-27) and Stephen Claridge et.al (see; Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters 18 (2008) 2793-2798). All of these patents and/or patent applications and literature disclosures are incorporated herein as reference in their entirety for all purposes.

    [0029] Despite the advances made in the area of kinases and in particular the role that c-met, RON, EGFR or KDR pathway plays in human diseases, challenges remain in term of the complexities of the target involved, the protein structure of the kinases, specificity issues for various kinase inhibitors, side effects and desired clinical benefits expected form the small molecule inhibitors. Accordingly, there still remains an unmet and dire need for small molecule compounds having specificity towards either one, two or multiple kinase inhibitors in order to regulate and/or modulate transduction of kinases, particularly c-Met, RON, EGFR or KDR for the treatment of diseases and disorders associated with kinases-mediated events.

    [0030] Further a reference is made herein to International Patent Application No. PCT/IB2011/052120, filed May 13, 2011 and U.S. Patent Application No. 13/108,642 filed May 16, 2011 which generally disclose 3,5-Disubstitued-3H-Imidazo[4,5-b]Pyridine and 3,5-Disubstitued -3H-[1,2,3]Triazolo[4,5-b] Pyridine compounds as modulators of Protein Kinases all of which are incorporated herein by reference in their entirety for all purposes.

    [0031] The c-Met pathway plays an important role in the above described human diseases including cancer. There are no c-Met inhibitors or antagonists that are currently available for treating these human disorders that are characterized by abnormal HGF/c-Met signaling. Therefore, there is a clear unmet medical need for compounds which inhibit c-Met and other kinases. The compounds, compositions, and pharmaceutical methods provided herein help meet this need.

    [0090] Yet another embodiment of the present invention is a method for treating a proliferative disease via modulation of a protein kinase (such as c-Met) by administering to a patient in need of such treatment an effective amount of at least one compound of (IA-I) as defined above.

    [0091] Yet another embodiment of the present invention is a method for treating a proliferative disease via modulation of a protein kinase (such as c-Met) by administering to a patient in need of such treatment an effective amount of at least one compound of formula (IA-I) as defined above, in combination (simultaneously or sequentially) with at least one other anti-cancer agent. In a preferred embodiment, the proliferative disease is cancer.

    [0092] More particularly, the compounds of formula (IA-I) and pharmaceutically acceptable esters or salts thereof can be administered for the treatment, prevention and/or amelioration of c-Met, RON, EGFR or KDR kinase associated diseases or disorders, including but not limited to, cancer and other proliferative diseases or disorders.

    [0093] The compounds of formula (IA-I) are useful in the treatment of a variety of cancers, including, but not limited to, the following:
    • carcinoma, including that of the bladder, breast, colon, kidney, liver, lung, including small cell lung cancer, esophagus, gall bladder, ovary, pancreas, stomach, cervix, thyroid, prostate, and skin, including squamous cell carcinoma;
    • hematopoietic tumors of lymphoid lineage, including leukemia, acute lymphocytic leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, B-cell lymphoma, T-cell lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, hairy cell lymphoma and Burkett's lymphoma;
    • hematopoietic tumors of myeloid lineage, including acute and chronic myelogenous leukemias, myelodysplastic syndrome and promyelocytic leukemia;
    • tumors of mesenchymal origin, including fibrosarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma;
    • tumors of the central and peripheral nervous system, including astrocytoma, neuroblastoma, glioma and schwannomas; and
    • other tumors, including melanoma, seminoma, teratocarcinoma, osteosarcoma, xenoderoma pigmentosum, keratoctanthoma, thyroid follicular cancer and Kaposi's sarcoma.


    [0094] Due to the key role of protein kinases in the regulation of cellular proliferation in general, inhibitors could act as reversible cytostatic agents which may be useful in the treatment of any disease process which features abnormal cellular proliferation, e.g., benign prostatic hyperplasia, familial adenomatosis polyposis, neuro-fibromatosis, atherosclerosis, pulmonary fibrosis, arthritis, psoriasis, glomerulonephritis, restenosis following angioplasty or vascular surgery, hypertrophic scar formation, inflammatory bowel disease, transplantation rejection, endotoxic shock, and fungal infections.

    [0095] The compounds of the present invention as modulators of apoptosis, are useful in the treatment of cancer (including but not limited to those types mentioned herein above), viral infections (including but not limited to herpevirus, poxvirus, Epstein-Barr virus, Sindbis virus and adenovirus), prevention of AIDS development in HIV-infected individuals, autoimmune diseases (including but not limited to systemic lupus, erythematosus, autoimmune mediated glomerulonephritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, and autoimmune diabetes mellitus), neurodegenerative disorders (including but not limited to Alzheimer's disease, AIDS-related dementia, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, retinitis pigmentosa, spinal muscular atrophy and cerebellar degeneration), myelodysplastic syndromes, aplastic anemia, ischemic injury associated with myocardial infarctions, stroke and reperfusion injury, arrhythmia, atherosclerosis, toxin-induced or alcohol related liver diseases, hematological diseases (including but not limited to chronic anemia and aplastic anemia), degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system (including but not limited to osteoporosis and arthritis) aspirin-sensitive rhinosinusitis, cystic fibrosis, multiple sclerosis, kidney diseases and cancer pain.

    [0096] The compounds of present invention can modulate the level of cellular RNA and DNA synthesis. These agents are therefore useful in the treatment of viral infections (including but not limited to HIV, human papilloma virus, herpesvirus, poxvirus, Epstein-Barr virus, Sindbis virus and adenovirus).

    [0097] The compounds of the present invention are useful in the chemoprevention of cancer. Chemoprevention is defined as inhibiting the development of invasive cancer by either blocking the initiating mutagenic event or by blocking the progression of pre-malignant cells that have already suffered an insult or inhibiting tumor relapse. The compounds are also useful in inhibiting tumor angiogenesis and metastasis. One embodiment of the invention is a method of inhibiting tumor angiogenesis or metastasis in a patient in need thereof by administering an effective amount of one or more compounds of the present invention.

    [0098] Another embodiment of the present invention is a method of treating an immune system-related disease (e.g., an autoimmune disease), a disease or disorder involving inflammation (e.g., asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, glomerulonephritis, neuroinflammatory diseases, multiple sclerosis, uveitis and disorders of the immune system), cancer or other proliferative disease, a hepatic disease or disorder, a renal disease or disorder. The method includes administering an effective amount of one or more compounds of the present invention.

    [0099] Examples of immune disorders include psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, inflammatory bowel disease, dermatitis, osteoarthritis, asthma, inflammatory muscle disease, allergic rhinitis, vaginitis, interstitial cystitis, scleroderma, osteoporosis, eczema, allogeneic or xenogeneic transplantation (organ, bone marrow, stem cells and other cells and tissues) graft rejection, graft-versus-host disease, lupus erythematosus, inflammatory disease, type I diabetes, pulmonary fibrosis, dermatomyositis, Sjogren's syndrome, thyroiditis (e.g., Hashimoto's and autoimmune thyroiditis), myasthenia gravis, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, chronic relapsing hepatitis, primary biliary cirrhosis, allergic conjunctivitis and atopic dermatitis.

    [0100] In one embodiment, the compounds described herein are used as immunosuppresants to prevent transplant graft rejections, allogeneic or xenogeneic transplantation rejection (organ, bone marrow, stem cells, other cells and tissues), and graft - versus - host disease. In other embodiments, transplant graft rejections result from tissue or organ transplants. In further embodiments, graft-versus-host disease results from bone marrow or stem cell transplantation.

Substitution or the combinations of substituents envisioned by this invention are preferably those that result in the formation of a stable or chemically feasible compound. The term stable as used herein refers to the compounds or the structure that are not substantially altered when subjected to conditions to allow for their isolation, production, detection and preferably their recovery, purification and incorporation into a pharmaceutical composition.

    [0131] The term "halo", "halide", or, alternatively, "halogen" means fluoro, chloro, bromo or iodo. The terms "haloalkyl," "haloalkenyl," "haloalkynyl" and "haloalkoxy" include alkyl, alkenyl, alkynyl and alkoxy structures that are substituted with one or more halo groups or with combinations thereof. For example, the terms "fluoroalkyl" and "fluoroalkoxy" include haloalkyl and haloalkoxy groups, respectively, in which the halo is fluorine.

    [0132] The term "protecting group" or "PG" refers to a substituent that is employed to block or protect a particular functionality. Other functional groups on the compound may remain reactive. For example, an "amino-protecting group" is a substituent attached to an amino group that blocks or protects the amino functionality in the compound. Suitable amino-protecting groups include, but are not limited to, acetyl, trifluoroacetyl, tert-butoxycarbonyl (BOC), benzyloxycarbonyl (CBz) and 9-fluorenylmethylenoxycarbonyl (Fmoc).

For a general description of protecting groups and their use, see T. W. Greene, Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis, John Wiley & Sons, New York, 1991.

    [0133] The term "stereoisomer" refers to compounds, which have identical chemical composition, but differ with regard to arrangement of the atoms and the groups in space. These include enantiomers, diastereomers, geometrical isomers, atropisomer or conformational isomers.

    [0134] All the stereoisomers of compounds described herein are within the scope of this invention. Racemic mixtures are also encompassed within the scope of this invention. Therefore, single stereochemical isomers as well enantiomeric, diastereoisomeric and geometric (or conformational) mixtures of the present compounds fall within the scope of the invention.

    [0135] Certain of the compounds described herein contain one or more asymmetric centers and can thus give rise to enantiomers, diastereomers, and other stereoisomeric forms that can be defined, in terms of absolute stereochemistry, as (R)- or (S)-. The present chemical entities, pharmaceutical compositions and methods are meant to include all such possible isomers, including racemic mixtures, optically pure forms and intermediate mixtures. For the instance the non-limiting example of intermediate mixutures include a mixture of isomers in a ratio of 10:90, 13:87, 17:83, 20:80, or 22:78. Optically active (R)- and (S)- isomers can be prepared using chiral synthons or chiral reagents, or resolved using conventional techniques. When the compounds described herein contain olefinic double bonds or other centers of geometric asymmetry, and unless specified otherwise, it is intended that the compounds include both E and Z geometric isomers.

    [0136] The term "tautomers" refers to compounds, which are characterized by relatively easy interconversion of isomeric forms in equilibrium. These isomers are intended to be covered by this invention. "Tautomers" are structurally distinct isomers that interconvert by tautomerization. "Tautomerization" is a form of isomerization and includes prototropic or proton-shift tautomerization, which is considered a subset of acid-base chemistry. "Prototropic tautomerization" or "proton-shift tautomerization" involves the migration of a proton accompanied by changes in bond order, often the interchange of a single bond with an adjacent double bond. Where tautomerization is possible (e.g. in solution), a chemical equilibrium of tautomers can be reached. An example of tautomerization is keto-enol tautomerization. A specific example of keto-enol tautomerization is the interconversion of pentane-2,4-dione and 4-hydroxypent-3-en-2-one tautomers. Another example of tautomerization is phenol-keto tautomerization. A specific example of phenol-keto tautomerization is the interconversion of pyridin-4-ol and pyridin-4(1H)-one tautomers.

    [0137] A "leaving group or atom" is any group or atom that will, under the reaction conditions, cleave from the starting material, thus promoting reaction at a specified site. Suitable examples of such groups unless otherwise specified are halogen atoms and mesyloxy, p-nitrobenzensulphonyloxy and tosyloxy groups.

    [0138] The term "prodrug" refers to a compound, which is an inactive precursor of a compound, converted into its active form in the body by normal metabolic processes. Prodrug design is discussed generally in Hardma, et al. (Eds.), Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed., pp. 11-16 (1996). A thorough discussion is provided in Higuchi, et al., Prodrugs as Novel Delivery Systems, Vol. 14, ASCD Symposium Series, and in Roche (ed.), Bioreversible Carriers in Drug Design, American Pharmaceutical Association and Pergamon Press (1987). To illustrate, prodrugs can be converted into a pharmacologically active form through hydrolysis of, for example, an ester or amide linkage, thereby introducing or exposing a functional group on the resultant product. The prodrugs can be designed to react with an endogenous compound to form a water-soluble conjugate that further enhances the pharmacological properties of the compound, for example, increased circulatory half-life. Alternatively, prodrugs can be designed to undergo covalent modification on a functional group with, for example, glucuronic acid, sulfate, glutathione, amino acids, or acetate. The resulting conjugate can be inactivated and excreted in the urine, or rendered more potent than the parent compound. High molecular weight conjugates also can be excreted into the bile, subjected to enzymatic cleavage, and released back into the circulation, thereby effectively increasing the biological half-life of the originally administered compound.

    [0139] The term "ester" refers to a compound, which is formed by reaction between an acid and an alcohol with elimination of water. An ester can be represented by the general formula RCOOR'.

    [0140] Additionally the instant invention also includes the compounds which differ only in the presence of one or more isotopically enriched atoms for example replacement of hydrogen with deuterium or tritium, or the replacement of a carbon by 13C- or 14C- enriched carbon.

    [0141] The compounds of the present invention may also contain unnatural proportions of atomic isotopes at one or more of atoms that constitute such compounds. For example, the compounds may be radiolabeled with radioactive isotopes, such as for example tritium (3H), iodine-125 (125I) or carbon-14 (14C). All isotopic variations of the compounds of the present invention, whether radioactive or not, are encompassed within the scope of the present invention.

    [0142] Pharmaceutically acceptable salts forming part of this invention include salts derived from inorganic bases such as Li, Na, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Cu, Zn, and Mn; salts of organic bases such as N,N'-diacetylethylenediamine, glucamine, triethylamine, choline, hydroxide, dicyclohexylamine, metformin, benzylamine, trialkylamine, and thiamine; chiral bases such as alkylphenylamine, glycinol, and phenyl glycinol; salts of natural amino acids such as glycine, alanine, valine, leucine, isoleucine, norleucine, tyrosine, cystine, cysteine, methionine, proline, hydroxy proline, histidine, omithine, lysine, arginine, and serine; quaternary ammonium salts of the compounds of invention with alkyl halides, alkyl sulphates such as MeI and (Me)2SO4; non-natural amino acids such as D-isomers or substituted amino acids; guanidine; and substituted guanidine wherein the substituents are selected from nitro, amino, alkyl, alkenyl, alkynyl, ammonium or substituted ammonium salts and aluminum salts.

    [0143] When ranges are used herein for physical properties, such as molecular weight, or chemical properties, such as chemical formulae, all combinations and subcombinations of ranges and specific embodiments therein are intended to be included. The term "about" when referring to a number or a numerical range means that the number or numerical range referred to is an approximation within experimental variability (or within statistical experimental error), and thus the number or numerical range may vary from, for example, between 1% and 15% of the stated number or numerical range. The term "comprising" (and related terms such as "comprise" or "comprises" or "having" or "including") includes those embodiments, for example, an embodiment of any composition of matter, composition, method, or process, or the like, that "consist of' or "consist essentially of" the described features.

    [0147] The term "co-administration," "administered in combination with," and their grammatical equivalents, as used herein, encompasses administration of two or more agents to an animal so that both agents and/or their metabolites are present in the animal at the same time. Co-administration includes simultaneous administration in separate compositions, administration at different times in separate compositions, or administration in a composition in which both agents are present.

    [0148] The term "effective amount" or "therapeutically effective amount" refers to that amount of a compound described herein that is sufficient to effect the intended application including but not limited to disease treatment, as defined below. The therapeutically effective amount may vary depending upon the intended application (in vitro or in vivo), or the subject and disease condition being treated, e.g., the weight and age of the subject, the severity of the disease condition, the manner of administration and the like, which can readily be determined by one of ordinary skill in the art. The term also applies to a dose that will induce a particular response in target cells, e.g. reduction of platelet adhesion and/or cell migration. The specific dose will vary depending on the particular compounds chosen, the dosing regimen to be followed, whether it is administered in combination with other compounds, timing of administration, the tissue to which it is administered, and the physical delivery system in which it is carried.

    [0149] As used herein, "treatment," "treating," or "ameliorating" are used interchangeably. These terms refers to an approach for obtaining beneficial or desired results including but not limited to therapeutic benefit and/or a prophylactic benefit. By therapeutic benefit is meant eradication or amelioration of the underlying disorder being treated. Also, a therapeutic benefit is achieved with the eradication or amelioration of one or more of the physiological symptoms associated with the underlying disorder such that an improvement is observed in the patient, notwithstanding that the patient may still be afflicted with the underlying disorder. For prophylactic benefit, the compositions may be administered to a patient at risk of developing a particular disease, or to a patient reporting one or more of the physiological symptoms of a disease, even though a diagnosis of this disease may not have been made.

    [0150] A "therapeutic effect," as that term is used herein, encompasses a therapeutic benefit and/or a prophylactic benefit as described above. A prophylactic effect includes delaying or eliminating the appearance of a disease or condition, delaying or eliminating the onset of symptoms of a disease or condition, slowing, halting, or reversing the progression of a disease or condition, or any combination thereof.

    [0151] The term "subject" or "patient" refers to an animal, such as a mammal, for example a human. The methods described herein can be useful in both human therapeutics and veterinary applications. In some embodiments, the patient is a mammal, and in some embodiments, the patient is human.

    [0152] "Radiation therapy" means exposing a patient, using routine methods and compositions known to the practitioner, to radiation emitters such as alpha-particle emitting radionuclides (e.g., actinium and thorium radionuclides), low linear energy transfer (LET) radiation emitters (i.e. beta emitters), conversion electron emitters (e.g. strontium-89 and samarium- 153-EDTMP, or high-energy radiation, including without limitation x-rays, gamma rays, and neutrons.

    [0153] "Signal transduction" is a process during which stimulatory or inhibitory signals are transmitted into and within a cell to elicit an intracellular response. A modulator of a signal transduction pathway refers to a compound which modulates the activity of one or more cellular proteins mapped to the same specific signal transduction pathway. A modulator may augment (agonist) or suppress (antagonist) the activity of a signaling molecule.

    [0154] The term "selective inhibition" or "selectively inhibit" as applied to a biologically active agent refers to the agent's ability to selectively reduce the target signaling activity as compared to off-target signaling activity, via direct or indirect interaction with the target.

    [0155] The term "pharmaceutically acceptable carrier" or "pharmaceutically acceptable excipient" includes, but is not limited to, any and all solvents, dispersion media, coatings, antibacterial and antifungal agents, isotonic and absorption delaying agents, one or more suitable diluents, fillers, salts, disintegrants, binders, lubricants, glidants, wetting agents, controlled release matrices, colorants/flavoring, carriers, excipients, buffers, stabilizers, solubilizers, and combinations thereof. Except insofar as any conventional media or agent is incompatible with the active ingredient, its use in the therapeutic compositions of the invention is contemplated. Supplementary active ingredients can also be incorporated into the compositions.

    [0156] Inhibition of c-met kinase may be of therapeutic benefit in treatment of various conditions, e.g., conditions characterized by an inflammatory response including but not limited to autoimmune diseases, allergic diseases, and arthritic diseases.

    [0157] "Inflammatory response" as used herein is characterized by redness, heat, swelling and pain (i.e., inflammation) and typically involves tissue injury or destruction. An inflammatory response is usually a localized, protective response elicited by injury or destruction of tissues, which serves to destroy, dilute or wall off (sequester) both the injurious agent and the injured tissue. Inflammatory responses are notably associated with the influx of leukocytes and/or leukocyte (e.g., neutrophil) chemotaxis. Inflammatory responses may result from infection with pathogenic organisms and viruses, noninfectious means such as trauma or reperfusion following myocardial infarction or stroke, immune responses to foreign antigens, and autoimmune diseases. Inflammatory responses amenable to treatment with the methods and compounds according to the invention encompass conditions associated with reactions of the specific defense system as well as conditions associated with reactions of the non-specific defense system.

    [0158] The therapeutic methods of the invention include methods for the amelioration of conditions associated with inflammatory cell activation. "Inflammatory cell activation" refers to the induction by a stimulus (including but not limited to, cytokines, antigens or auto-antibodies) of a proliferative cellular response, the production of soluble mediators (including but not limited to cytokines, oxygen radicals, enzymes, prostanoids, or vasoactive amines), or cell surface expression of new or increased numbers of mediators (including but not limited to, major histocompatibility antigens or cell adhesion molecules) in inflammatory cells (including but not limited to monocytes, macrophages, T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, granulocytes (polymorphonuclear leukocytes including neutrophils, basophils, and eosinophils) mast cells, dendritic cells, Langerhans cells, and endothelial cells). It will be appreciated by persons skilled in the art that the activation of one or a combination of these phenotypes in these cells can contribute to the initiation, perpetuation, or exacerbation of an inflammatory condition.

    [0159] "Autoimmune disease" as used herein refers to any group of disorders in which tissue injury is associated with humoral or cell-mediated responses to the body's own constituents. "Transplant rejection" as used herein refers-to any immune response directed against grafted tissue (including organs or cells (e.g., bone marrow), characterized by a loss of function of the grafted and surrounding tissues, pain, swelling, leukocytosis, and thrombocytopenia). "Allergic disease" as used herein refers to any symptoms, tissue damage, or loss of tissue function resulting from allergy. "Arthritic disease" as used herein refers to any disease that is characterized by inflammatory lesions of the joints attributable to a variety of etiologies. "Dermatitis" as used herein refers to any of a large family of diseases of the skin that are characterized by inflammation of the skin attributable to a variety of etiologies.

    [0160] The relative efficacies of compounds as inhibitors of an enzyme activity (or other biological activity) can be established by determining the concentrations at which each compound inhibits the activity to a predefined extent and then comparing the results. Typically, the preferred determination is the concentration that inhibits 50% of the activity in a biochemical assay, i.e., the 50% inhibitory concentration or "IC50". IC50 determinations can be accomplished using conventional techniques known in the art. In general, an IC50 can be determined by measuring the activity of a given enzyme in the presence of a range of concentrations of the inhibitor under study. The experimentally obtained values of enzyme activity then are plotted against the inhibitor concentrations used. The concentration of the inhibitor that shows 50% enzyme activity (as compared to the activity in the absence of any inhibitor) is taken as the IC50 value. Analogously, other inhibitory concentrations can be defined through appropriate determinations of activity. For example, in some settings it can be desirable to establish a 90% inhibitory concentration, i.e., IC90, etc.

    [0161] Accordingly, a c-met selective inhibitor alternatively can be understood to refer to a compound that exhibits a 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50) with respect to c-met kinase, that is at least 10-fold, in another aspect at least 20-fold, and in another aspect at least 30-fold, lower than the IC50 value with respect to any or all of the other class receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) family members. In an alternative embodiment of the invention, the term c-met kinase selective inhibitor can be understood to refer to a compound that exhibits an IC50 with respect to c-met kinase that is at least 50-fold, in another aspect at least 100-fold, in an additional aspect at least 200-fold, and in yet another aspect at least 500-fold, lower than the IC50 with respect to any or all of the other RTK family members. A c-met kinase selective inhibitor is typically administered in an amount such that it selectively inhibits c-met activity, as described above.

    [0162] The methods of the invention may be applied to cell populations in vivo or ex vivo. "In vivo" means within a living individual, as within an animal or human or in a subject's body. In this context, the methods of the invention may be used therapeutically or prophylactically in an individual. "Ex vivo" or "In vitro" means outside of a living individual. Examples of ex vivo cell populations include in vitro cell cultures and biological samples including but not limited to fluid or tissue samples obtained from individuals. Such samples may be obtained by methods known in the art. Exemplary biological fluid samples include blood, cerebrospinal fluid, urine, and saliva. Exemplary tissue samples include tumors and biopsies thereof. In this context, the invention may be used for a variety of purposes, including therapeutic and experimental purposes. For example, the invention may be used ex vivo or in vitro to determine the optimal schedule and/or dosing of administration of a c-met kinase selective inhibitor for a given indication, cell type, individual, and other parameters. Information gleaned from such use may be used for experimental or diagnostic purposes or in the clinic to set protocols for in vivo treatment. Other ex vivo uses for which the invention may be suited are described below or will become apparent to those skilled in the art.

    Pharmaceutical Compositions



    [0163] The invention provides a pharmaceutical composition comprising one or more compounds of the present invention. The pharmaceutical composition may include one or more additional active ingredients as described herein. The pharmaceutical composition may be administered for any of the disorders described herein

    [0164] In some embodiments, the invention provides pharmaceutical compositions for treating diseases or conditions related to an undesirable, over-active, harmful or deleterious immune response in a mammal. Such undesirable immune response can be associated with or result in, e.g., asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, psoriasis, allergy, anaphylaxsis, auto-immune diseases, rhuematoid arthritis, graft versus host disease, and lupus erythematosus. The pharmaceutical compositions of the present invention can be used to treat other respiratory diseases including but not limited to diseases affecting the lobes of lung, pleural cavity, bronchial tubes, trachea, upper respiratory tract, or the nerves and muscle for breathing.

    [0165] In some embodiments, the invention provides pharmaceutical compositions for the treatment of disorders such as hyperproliferative disorder including but not limited to cancer such as acute myeloid leukemia, thymus, brain, lung, squamous cell, skin, eye, retinoblastoma, intraocular melanoma, oral cavity and oropharyngeal, bladder, gastric, stomach, pancreatic, bladder, breast, cervical, head, neck, renal, kidney, liver, ovarian, prostate, colorectal, esophageal, testicular, gynecological, thyroid, CNS, PNS, AIDS related (e.g. Lymphoma and Kaposi's Sarcoma) or Viral-Induced cancer. In some embodiments, the pharmaceutical composition is for the treatment of a non-cancerous hyperproliferative disorder such as benign hyperplasia of the skin (e. g., psoriasis), restenosis, or prostate (e. g., benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH)).

    [0166] The invention also relates to a composition for treating a disease related to vasculogenesis or angiogenesis in a mammal which can manifest as tumor angiogenesis, chronic inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, atherosclerosis, skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, and scleroderma, diabetes, diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity, age-related macular degeneration, hemangioma, glioma, melanoma, Kaposi's sarcoma and ovarian, breast, lung, pancreatic, prostate, colon and epidermoid cancer.

    [0167] The invention also provides compositions for the treatment of liver diseases (including diabetes), pancreatitis or kidney disease (including proliferative glomerulonephritis and diabetes- induced renal disease) or pain in a mammal.

    [0168] The invention further provides a composition for the prevention of blastocyte implantation in a mammal.

    [0169] The subject pharmaceutical compositions are typically formulated to provide a therapeutically effective amount of a compound of the present invention as the active ingredient, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, ester, or prodrug thereof. Where desired, the pharmaceutical compositions contain a compound of the present invention as the active ingredient or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt and/or coordination complex thereof, and one or more pharmaceutically acceptable excipients, carriers, such as inert solid diluents and fillers, diluents, including sterile aqueous solution and various organic solvents, permeation enhancers, solubilizers and adjuvants.

    [0170] The subject pharmaceutical compositions can be administered alone or in combination with one or more other agents, which are also typically administered in the form of pharmaceutical compositions. Where desired, the subject compounds and other agent(s) may be mixed into a preparation or both components may be formulated into separate preparations to use them in combination separately or at the same time.

    [0171] Methods include administration of an inhibitor by itself, or in combination as described herein, and in each case optionally including one or more suitable diluents, fillers, salts, disintegrants, binders, lubricants, glidants, wetting agents, controlled release matrices, colorants/flavoring, carriers, excipients, buffers, stabilizers, solubilizers, and combinations thereof.

    [0172] Preparations of various pharmaceutical compositions are known in the art. See, e.g., Anderson, Philip O.; Knoben, James E.; Troutman, William G, eds., Handbook of Clinical Drug Data, Tenth Edition, McGraw-Hill, 2002; Pratt and Taylor, eds., Principles of Drug Action, Third Edition, Churchill Livingston, New York, 1990; Katzung, ed., Basic and Clinical Pharmacology, Ninth Edition, McGraw Hill, 2003; Goodman and Gilman, eds., The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, Tenth Edition, McGraw Hill, 2001; Remingtons Pharmaceutical Sciences, 20th Ed., Lippincott Williams & Wilkins., 2000; Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, Thirty-Second Edition (The Pharmaceutical Press, London, 1999), all of which are incorporated by reference herein in their entirety.

    [0173] The compounds or pharmaceutical composition of the present invention can be administered by any route that enables delivery of the compounds to the site of action, such asoral routes, intraduodenal routes, parenteral injection (including intravenous, intraarterial, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravascular, intraperitoneal or infusion), topical administration (e.g. transdermal application), rectal administration, via local delivery by catheter or stent or through inhalation. The compounds can also be administered intraadiposally or intrathecally.

    [0174] The compositions can be administered in solid, semi-solid, liquid or gaseous form, or may be in dried powder, such as lyophilized form. The pharmaceutical compositions can be packaged in forms convenient for delivery, including, for example, solid dosage forms such as capsules, sachets, cachets, gelatins, papers, tablets, capsules, suppositories, pellets, pills, troches, and lozenges. The type of packaging will generally depend on the desired route of administration. Implantable sustained release formulations are also contemplated, as are transdermal formulations.

    Routes of Administration



    [0175] In the methods according to the invention, the inhibitor compounds may be administered by various routes. For example, pharmaceutical compositions may be for injection, or for oral, nasal, transdermal or other forms of administration, including, e.g., by intravenous, intradermal, intramuscular, intramammary, intraperitoneal, intrathecal, intraocular, retrobulbar, intrapulmonary (e.g., aerosolized drugs) or subcutaneous injection (including depot administration for long term release e.g., embedded-under the-splenic capsule, brain, or in the cornea); by sublingual, anal, or vaginal administration, or by surgical implantation, e.g., embedded under the splenic capsule, brain, or in the cornea. The treatment may consist of a single dose or a plurality of doses over a period of time. In general, the methods of the invention involve administering effective amounts of a modulator of the invention together with one or more pharmaceutically acceptable diluents, preservatives, solubilizers, emulsifiers, adjuvants and/or carriers, as described above.

    [0176] The subject pharmaceutical composition may, for example, be in a form suitable for oral administration as a tablet, capsule, pill, powder, sustained release formulations, solution, suspension, for parenteral injection as a sterile solution, suspension or emulsion, for topical administration as an ointment or cream or for rectal administration as a suppository. The pharmaceutical composition may be in unit dosage forms suitable for single administration of precise dosages. The pharmaceutical composition will include a conventional pharmaceutical carrier or excipient and a compound according to the invention as an active ingredient. In addition, it may include other medicinal or pharmaceutical agents, carriers, and adjuvants.

    [0177] In one aspect, the invention provides methods for oral administration of a pharmaceutical composition of the invention. Oral solid dosage forms are described generally in Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences, supra at Chapter 89. Solid dosage forms include tablets, capsules, pills, troches or lozenges, and cachets or pellets. Also, liposomal or proteinoid encapsulation may be used to formulate the compositions (as, for example, proteinoid microspheres reported in U.S. Pat. No. 4,925,673). Liposomal encapsulation may include liposomes that are derivatized with various polymers (e.g., U.S. Pat. No. 5,013,556). The formulation may include a compound of the invention and inert ingredients which protect against degradation in the stomach and which permit release of the biologically active material in the intestine.

    [0178] Toxicity and therapeutic efficacy of the met kinase compounds can be determined by standard pharmaceutical procedures in cell cultures or experimental animals, e.g., for determining the LD50 (the dose lethal to 50% of the population) and the ED50 (the dose therapeutically effective in 50% of the population). Additionally, this information can be determined in cell cultures or experimental animals additionally treated with other therapies including but not limited to radiation, chemotherapeutic agents, photodynamic therapies, radiofrequency ablation, anti-angiogenic agents, and combinations thereof.

    [0179] The amount of the compound administered will be dependent on the mammal being treated, the severity of the disorder or condition, the rate of administration, the disposition of the compound and the discretion of the prescribing physician. However, an effective dosage is in the range of about 0.001 to about 100 mg per kg body weight per day, preferably about 1 to about 35 mg/kg/day, in single or divided doses. For a 70 kg human, this would amount to about 0.05 to 7 g/day, preferably about 0.05 to about 2.5 g/day. In some instances, dosage levels below the lower limit of the aforesaid range may be more than adequate, while in other cases still larger doses may be employed without causing any harmful side effect, e.g. bydividing such larger doses into several small doses for administration throughout the day.

    [0180] In some embodiments, a compound of the invention is administered in a single dose. Typically, such administration will be by injection, e.g., intravenous injection, in order to introduce the agent quickly. However, other routes may be used as appropriate. A single dose of a compound of the invention may also be used for treatment of an acute condition.

    [0181] In practice of the methods of the invention, the pharmaceutical compositions are generally provided in doses ranging from 1 pg compound/kg body weight to 1000 mg/kg, 0.1 mg/kg to 100 mg/kg, 0.1 mg/kg to 50 mg/kg, and 1 to 20 mg/kg, given in daily doses or in equivalent doses at longer or shorter intervals, e.g., every other day, twice weekly, weekly, or twice or three times daily. The inhibitor compositions may be administered by an initial bolus followed by a continuous infusion to maintain therapeutic circulating levels of drug product. Those of ordinary skill in the art will readily optimize effective dosages and administration regimens as determined by good medical practice and the clinical condition of the individual to be treated. The frequency of dosing will depend on the pharmacokinetic parameters of the agents and the route of administration. The optimal pharmaceutical formulation will be determined by one skilled in the art depending upon the route of administration and desired dosage [see, for example, Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences, pp. 1435-1712, the disclosure of which is hereby incorporated by reference]. Such formulations may influence the physical state, stability, rate of in vivo release, and rate of in vivo clearance of the administered agents. Depending on the route of administration, a suitable dose may be calculated according to body weight, body surface area or organ size. Further refinement of the calculations necessary to determine the appropriate dosage for treatment involving each of the above mentioned formulations is routinely made by those of ordinary skill in the art without undue experimentation, especially in light of the dosage information and assays disclosed herein, as well as the pharmacokinetic data observed in human clinical trials. Appropriate dosages may be ascertained by using established assays for determining blood level dosages in conjunction with an appropriate physician considering various factors which modify the action of drugs, e.g., the drug's specific activity, the severity of the indication, and the responsiveness of the individual, the age, condition, body weight, sex and diet of the individual, the time of administration and other clinical factors. As studies are conducted, further information will emerge regarding the appropriate dosage levels and duration of treatment for various diseases and conditions capable of being treated with the methods of the invention.

    [0182] In some embodiments, a compound of the invention is administered in multiple doses. Dosing may be about once, twice, three times, four times, five times, six times, or more than six times per day. Dosing may be about once a month, once every two weeks, once a week, or once every other day. In another embodiment a compound of the invention and another agent are administered together about once per day to about 6 times per day. In another embodiment the administration of a compound of the invention and an agent continues for less than about 7 days. In yet another embodiment the administration continues for more than about 6, 10, 14, 28 days, two months, six months, or one year. In some cases, continuous dosing is achieved and maintained as long as necessary.

    [0183] Administration of the agents of the invention may continue as long as necessary. In some embodiments, an agent of the invention is administered for more than 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 14, or 28 days. In some embodiments, an agent of the invention is administered for less than 28, 14, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, or 1 day. In some embodiments, an agent of the invention is administered chronically on an ongoing basis, e.g., for the treatment of chronic effects.

    [0184] An effective amount of a compound of the invention may be administered in either single or multiple doses by any of the accepted modes of administration of agents having similar utilities, including rectal, buccal, intranasal and transdermal routes, by intra-arterial injection, intravenously, intraperitoneally, parenterally, intramuscularly, subcutaneously, orally, topically, or as an inhalant.

    [0185] The compounds of the invention may be administered in dosages. It is known in the art that due to intersubject variability in compound pharmacokinetics, individualization of dosing regimen is necessary for optimal therapy. Dosing for a compound of the invention may be found by routine experimentation in light of the instant disclosure.

    [0186] When a compound of the invention, is administered in a composition that comprises one or more agents, and the agent has a shorter half-life than the compound of the invention unit dose forms of the agent and the compound of the invention may be adjusted accordingly.

    [0187] The inhibitors of the invention may be covalently or noncovalently associated with a carrier molecule including but not limited to a linear polymer (e.g., polyethylene glycol, polylysine, dextran, etc.), a branched-chain polymer (see U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,289,872 and 5,229,490; PCT Publication No. WO 93/21259), a lipid, a cholesterol group (such as a steroid), or a carbohydrate or oligosaccharide. Specific examples of carriers for use in the pharmaceutical compositions of the invention include carbohydrate-based polymers such as trehalose, mannitol, xylitol, sucrose, lactose, sorbitol, dextrans such as cyclodextran, cellulose, and cellulose derivatives. Also, the use of liposomes, microcapsules or microspheres, inclusion complexes, or other types of carriers is contemplated.

    [0188] Other carriers include one or more water soluble polymer attachments such as polyoxyethylene glycol, or polypropylene glycol as described U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,640,835, 4,496,689, 4,301,144, 4,670,417, 4,791,192 and 4,179,337. Still other useful carrier polymers known in the art include monomethoxy-polyethylene glycol, poly-(N-vinyl pyrrolidone)-polyethylene glycol, propylene glycol homopolymers, a polypropylene oxidelethylene oxide co-polymer, polyoxyethylated polyols (e.g., glycerol) and polyvinyl alcohol, as well as mixtures of these polymers.

    [0189] Derivitization with bifunctional agents is useful for cross-linking a compound of the invention to a support matrix or to a carrier. One such carrier is polyethylene glycol (PEG). The PEG group may be of any convenient molecular weight and may be straight chain or branched. The average molecular weight of the PEG can range from about 2 kDa to about 100 kDa, in another aspect from about 5 kDa to about 50 kDa, and in a further aspect from about 5 kDa to about 10 kDa. The PEG groups will generally be attached to the compounds of the invention via acylation, reductive alkylation, Michael addition, thiol alkylation or other chemoselective conjugation/ligation methods through a reactive group on the PEG moiety (e.g., an aldehyde, amino, ester, thiol, ci-haloacetyl, maleimido or hydrazino group) to a reactive group on the target inhibitor compound (e.g., an aldehyde, amino, ester, thiol, a-haloacetyl, maleimido or hydrazino group). Cross-linking agents can include, e.g., esters with 4-azidosalicylic acid, homobifunctional imidoesters, including disuccinimidyl esters such as 3,3'-dithiobis (succinimidylpropionate), and bifunctional maleimides such as bis-N-maleimido-1,8-octane. Derivatizing agents such as methyl-3-[(p-azidophenyl)dithiolpropioimidate yield photoactivatable intermediates that are capable of forming crosslinks in the presence of light. Alternatively, reactive water-insoluble matrices such as cyanogen bromide-activated carbohydrates and the reactive substrates described in U.S. Pat. Nos. 3,969,287; 3,691,016; 4,195,128; 4,247,642; 4,229,537; and 4,330,440 may be employed for inhibitor immobilization.

    BIOLOGICAL ASSAY



    [0484] The pharmacological properties of the compounds of this invention may be confirmed by a number of pharmacological assays. The pharmacological assays which can be been carried out with the compounds according to the invention and/or their pharmaceutically acceptable salts are exemplified below.

    1. MET Kinase Assay Protocol:


    Colorimetric determination of c-Met Kinase activity



    [0485] The receptor tyrosine kinase c-Met is a heterodimeric transmembrane glycoprotein involved in several cellular processes that aid in tumor progression. Phosphorylation of the tyrosine residues in the c-Met kinase domain is critical for its activity and the resulting down-stream effects. The colorimetric assay allows detection of the phosphorylated form of a biotinylated peptide upon activation of human recombinant Met kinase.

    MET Kinase Assay Protocol:



    [0486] c-Met Kinase activity shall be determined using an HTScan® Met Kinase Assay Kit (Cell Signalling Technology, Beverly, MA) with modifications. All incubations are carried out at room temperature. Briefly, 12.5 µl of a 4X reaction cocktail (DTT/Kinase buffer containing appropriate quantity of human Met kinase) is added to each well of a 96-well plate containing 12.5 µl pre-diluted compound of interest and incubated for 5 minutes. After the initial incubation, 25 µl/well of 2X ATP/biotinylated peptide is added and incubated for an additional 30 minutes. The reaction is terminated by the addition of 50 µl/well stop buffer (50 mM EDTA, pH 8.0). The reaction mixture (25 µl/well) is then transferred to a streptavidin coated plate (Perkin Elmer, Cat# 4009-0010) containing 75 µl dH2O and incubated for 60 minutes. The plate is washed with 200 µl/well wash buffer (1X PBS, 0.05% Tween-20). After washing, 100 µl/well phospho-tyrosine mAb (1:1000 in wash buffer containing 1% BSA) is added and incubated for 60 minutes. After another round of washes, 100 µl/well europium labelled anti-mouse IgG (1:500 in wash buffer containing 1% BSA) is added and incubated for an additional 30 minutes. Following additional washes, 100 µl/well Delfia(R) enhancement solution (Perkin Elmer, Cat#1244-105) is added and incubated for 45 minutes. Florescence is measured on a microplate reader (BMG Labtech., Germany) at 340 nm (excitation) and 615 nm (emission) for calculating % inhibition. Data generated can be analyzed further using Graphpad Prism (Graphpad software, San Diego CA) for determination of IC50.

    3. Inhibition of MKN-45 proliferation:



    [0488] Cell proliferation assays were carried out using the high Met expressing human gastric adenocarcinoma cell line, MKN-45, according to the following schedule:

    Day 1: Cells were plated in 96-well plates in complete growth medium.

    Day 2: Compounds at desired concentrations were added.

    Day 5: Cell viability was determined using the 3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) dye reduction test.



    [0489] Results: The results are as given as % Inhibition of MKN-45 proliferation at 100 nM and GI50 values in Table 4A to 4C above.

    4. Inhibition of c-Met kinase phosphorylation in MKN-45 cells:



    [0490] MKN45 cells are a prototype of "c-Met addicted" cells having constitutively activated c-Met kinase similar to that observed in sub-sects of gastric or hepatocellular cancer patients with dysregulated c-Met kinase activity. Inhibition of Met phosphorylation was determined using a cell based ELISA assay according to the following schedule:

    Day 1: MKN-45 cells were plated in 96-well plates in complete growth medium.

    Day 2: Inhibitors at the desired concentration were added to the plates and incubated for 1 h and lysed subsequently.

    Lysates were transferred to NUNC Maxisorp plates coated with anti-cMet receptor antibody. Phopho-tyrosine mAb and HRP-lined anti-mouse IgG were used as primary and secondary antibodies respectively. Optical density was measured on a microplate reader (BMG Labtech., Germany) at 450 nM. Inhibition of c-Met phosphorylation in this cell line indicates a therapeutic potential for test compounds in patients diagnosed with cancers caused by aberrant c-Met kinase signalling.

    6. Inhibition of Akt phosphorylation in MKN-45 or NCI-H441 cells:



    [0494] Akt is a serine-threonine kinase and a downstream marker regulated by c-Met kinase via the PI3K pathway. Once phosphorylated, Akt regulates several end processes including cell survival and growth. Cells were treated with 0 -1000 nM of test compounds, lysed, and the proteins separated on a 10% SDS-PAGE. Following separation, proteins were transferred onto a nitrocellulose membrane and detected by chemiluminescence after incubation with pAkt S473 mAb (primary) and rabbit anti-mouse Ab (secondary). Intensity of the bands was determined using ImageJ 1.42q (NIH, USA) and normalized to Actin (loading control).

    8. Inhibition of HGF-induced Met phosphorylation in MDA-MB-231 cells:



    [0498] MDA-MB-231 is a breast cancer cell line having a high level of c-Met expression. Activation of Met kinase in these cells occurs only after the addition of its natural ligand, Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF). Upon binding to the extracellular domain of the enzyme, it triggers phosphorylation of tyrosine residues and regulates several downstream events such as cell proliferation. Cell proliferation assays were carried out using the high Met expressing cell line (MDA-MB-231) according to the following schedule:

    Day 1: Cells were plated in 96-well plates in complete growth medium.

    Day 2: Media was replaced with starvation medium containing 0.04% BSA.

    Day 3: Inhibitors at the desired concentrations and HGF (50 ng/ml) were added.

    Day 5: Cell viability was determined using the 3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) dye reduction test.

    The compounds of the present invention tested potently inhibited HGF-induced Met phosphorylation in MDA-MB-231 cells thereby implicating their role in the modulation of the HGF/Met axis in breast cancer.

    9. Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF) induced Cell Scatter:



    [0500] Human prostate cancer (PC3), human breast cancer (MDAMB231), Human lung adenocarcinoma (NCIH-441) cells were individually allowed to grow in small colonies by plating them in low density (20,000cells/well) in growth media supplemented with 10% foetal bovine serum and incubated overnight at 37° C and 5% CO2. The next day each of these cells were placed in starvation media, i.e. serum-free growth media and incubated overnight at 37° C and 5% CO2. Test compounds were added at required concentrations in complete growth media supplemented with foetal bovine serum and allowed an incubation of 2 hours. Cells were stimulated by replacing the test compounds with complete growth media containing 40ng/ml HGF and incubated for 48 hrs. Cell scatter was observed as dissemination of the cells under effect of HGF in comparison to unstimulated cells growing in small colonies.

    [0501] Results: Exemplary compounds of the invention potently inhibited HGF-induced PC3, MDAMB231 and NCIH-441 cell scatter when tested @ 1 to 1000 nM thereby indicating their potential effect and therapeutic utility in metastasis.

    10. Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF) Induced Scratch Wound Assay for Cell Motility:



    [0502] Individually 60,000cells/well each of Human prostate cancer (PC3), human breast cancer (MDAMB231), Human lung adenocarcinoma (NCIH-441) were plated in growth media supplemented with 10% foetal bovine serum and incubated at 37° C and 5% CO2, grown to confluency. A channel was introduced between cells using a 200µl tip and fresh serum containing media was added along with inhibitors and HGF (50ng/ml). Cells were incubated overnight at 37° C and 5% CO2 and cell motility was observed under microscope as migration of cells into the artificially created space.

    [0503] Results: Exemplary compounds of the invention potently inhibited HGF-induced PC3, MDAMB231 and NCIH-441 cell migration when tested @ 1 to 1000 nM thereby indicating their potential effect and therapeutic utility in metastasis.
