Description


[0001] The present invention relates to novel 1-[m-carboxamido(hetero)aryl-methyl]-heterocyclyl-carboxamide compounds of formula (I) and their use as pharmaceuticals. The invention also concerns related aspects including processes for the preparation of the compounds, pharmaceutical compositions containing one or more compounds of formula (I), and their use as modulators of the CXCL12 receptor CXCR7.

[0002] Chemokine receptors are a group of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) that bind peptidic chemokine ligands with high affinity. The predominant function of chemokine receptors is to guide leukocyte trafficking to lymphoid organs and tissues under resting conditions as well as during inflammation, but a role for certain chemokine receptors on non-hematopoietic cells and their progenitors has also been recognized.

[0003] Signaling networks and metabolic profiles of cancer cells differ in a microenvironment dependent manner. This is a major reason for lack of therapeutic response of tumors at certain organ sites and of tumor metastases in comparison to primary tumors. CXCL12 (alias stromal cell-derived factor 1, SDF-1; alias Pre-B cell growth stimulating factor, PBSF), a stroma-derived chemo-attractant, exerts anti-apoptotic effects, displays pro-angiogenic properties and plays a key role in seeding circulating tumor cells to metastatic sites. CXCL12 binds and activates two receptors, CXCR7 (alias RDC1, alias CMKOR1, alias GPR159) and CXCR4 (alias Fusin, alias Leukocyte-derived seven-transmembrane-domain receptor; LESTR, alias D2S201E, alias seven-transmembrane-segment receptor, alias HM89, alias lipopolysaccharide-associated protein 3; lap3, alias LPS-associated protein 3).

[0004] The expression of the CXCL12 receptor CXCR7 correlates with diseases progression in cancer (among others in hormone refractory prostate cancer, in renal cell carcinoma, cervical cancer, papillary thyroid carcinoma, bladder cancer, Ewing's sarcoma, colorectal cancers, lung cancer, meningiomas, MALT lymphoma and in tumors in the brain). CXCR7 is also expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma, breast cancer, osteosarcoma, leukemia, gallbladder cancers, alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, myeloma, non-small cell lung cancer, oral cancers and pancreas cancer (for review see Sun et al.; CXCL12/CXCR4/CXCR7 Chemokine Axis and Cancer Progression; Cancer Metastasis Rev. 2010, 29(4), 709-722).

[0005] CXCR7 silencing and targeting have been shown to reduce tumor growth in experimental disease models [Wang et al.; The role of CXCR7/RDC1 as a chemokine Receptor for CXCL12/SDF-1 in prostate cancer; Journal of Biochemical Chemistry 2008, 293(7), 4283-4294; Ebsworth et al.; The effect of the CXCR7 inhibitor CCX662 on survival in the ENU rat model of gliobastoma; J Clin Oncol 2012, 30, (suppl; abstr e13580); Zheng et al.; Chemokine receptor CXCR7 regulates the invasion, angiogenesis and tumor growth of human hepatocellular carcinoma cells; Journal of Experimental and Clinical Cancer Research. 2010, 29: 31; Miao et al.; CXCR7 (RDC1) promotes breast and lung tumor growth in vivo and is expressed on tumor associated vasculature; PNAS 2007, 104(40), 15735-15740; Burns et al.; A novel chemokine receptor for SDF-1 and I-TAC involved in cell survival, cell adhesion, and tumor development; Journal of Experimental Medicine 2006, 203(9), 2201-2213], including among others hepatocellular carcinoma, Kaposi's sarcoma, T cell leukemia, lymphoma, lung carcinomas, breast cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer and glioblastoma; to alter tumor-associated blood vessels; to reduce tumor cell seeding; to reduce rheumatoid arthritis clinical scores; to decrease the clinical severity of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis; to attenuate chronic hypoxia induced pulmonary hypertension and to improve beneficial effects of mesenchymal stem cells based therapies for renal ischemia/reperfusion injury [Cruz-Orengo et al.; CXCR7 influences leukocyte entry into the CNS parenchyma by controlling abluminal CXCL12 abundance during autoimmunity; Journal of Experimental Medicine 2011, 208(2), 327-339; Sartina et al.; Antagonism of CXCR7 attenuates chronic hypoxia-induced pulmonary hypertension; Pediatric Research 2012, 71(6), 682-688; Watanabe et al.; Pathogenic role of CXCR7 in rheumatoid arthritis; Arthritis and Rheumatism 2010, 62(11), 3211-3220]

[0006] Furthermore, CXCL12 depletion sensitizes cancer cells to chemotherapy in vivo and CXCL12 treatment blocks colonic carcinoma metastasis. CXCR7 is also a receptor for CXCL11 (alias small inducible cytokine subfamily b, member 11; scyb11, alias interferon-gamma-inducible protein 9; ip9, alias small inducible cytokine subfamily b, member 9b; scyb9b) and therefore modulators of CXCR7 activity can also be used in indications with CXCL11-associated pathology. CXCR7 has also been shown to function as a scavenger receptor for CXCL12. Thus, CXCR7 targeting has been shown to alter CXCL12 local concentration leading to a deregulation of the CXCL12 concentration gradient. The biological properties of CXCR7 modulators thus include, but are not limited to, any physiological function and/or cellular function linked controlled by CXCL12 (Duda et al.; CXCL12 (SDF1alpha)-CXCR4/CXCR7 pathway inhibition: an emerging sensitizer for anticancer therapies?; Clin. Cancer Res. 2011 17(8) 2074-2080; Naumann et al.; CXCR7 function as a scavenger for CXCL12 and CXCL11; Plos One 2010, 5(2)e9175).

[0007] CXCR7 modulation (using small molecules antagonizing CXCL12 binding on CXCR7, or anti-CXCR7 antibodies, or RNA interference techniques to silence CXCR7 expression), CXCL12 modulation of activity/expression, or CXCR7 expression is, thus, associated with diseases and disorders including cancer, notably carcinomas, leukemias, adenocarcinomas, gliomas, glioblastoma, brain metastases, multiple myelomas, renal clear cell carcinoma, prostate cancer, pancreatic adenocarcinoma, melanoma, metastatic melanoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, colon tumors, breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, oral tumors, adult T-cell leukemia, gallbladder cancer, brain tumors, Ewing's sarcoma, bladder cancer, meningiomas, lymphoma, viral-induced tumors, Burkitt's lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphoma, MALT lymphoma, papillary thyroid carcinoma, cervical cancer, osteosarcoma, lymphoproliferative disease, and Kaposi's sarcoma; primary intra-ocular B-cell lymphoma; inflammation; multiple sclerosis; renal allograft rejection; rheumatoid arthritis; auto-immune encephalomyelitis; demyelinating diseases; pulmonary vascular diseases; osteoarthritis; acute renal failure; ischemia; inflammatory bowel disease; injured central nervous system; HSCs transplantation; cerebral ischemia; pulmonary hypertension; Shiga-toxin-associated heomolytic uremic syndrome; Preeclampsia; choriocarcinoma; chronic rhinosinusitis; HIV; atherosclerosis; acute lung injury; asthma; systemic lupus erythematosus; diseases involving CXCR7 and/or CXCL12 and /or CXCL11 mediated metastasis, chemotaxis, cell adhesion, trans-endothelial migration, cell proliferation and/or survival. Further disorders associated with CXCR7 modulation include proliferative diabetic retinopathy, West Nile virus encephalitis, vascular injury and pulmonary fibrosis.

[0008] WO2009/076404 discloses certain carboxamide compounds comprising a bicyclic ring; and WO2008/045564 discloses certain carboxamine compounds, which are antagonists of the chemokine CCR2 receptor.

[0009] The present invention provides novel 1-[m-carboxamido(hetero)aryl-methyl]-heterocyclyl-carboxamide compounds which are modulators of the CXCR7 receptor, i.e. they act as CXCR7 receptor agonists and/or as functional antagonists, and are useful for the prevention or treatment of diseases which respond to the activation of the CXCL12 receptors and/or CXCL11 receptors; including autoimmune disorders (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, lupus nephritis, interstitial cystitis, celiac disease), inflammatory diseases (e.g. asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, atherosclerosis, myocarditis, sarcoidosis), transplant rejection, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, fibrosis (e.g. liver cirrhosis), and especially cancer.

Preparation of compounds of formula (I):



[0063] The compounds of formula (I) can be prepared by the methods given below, by the methods given in the experimental part below or by analogous methods. Optimum reaction conditions may vary with the particular reactants or solvents used, but such conditions can be determined by a person skilled in the art by routine optimisation procedures. In some cases the final product may be further modified, for example, by manipulation of substituents to give a new final product. These manipulations may include, but are not limited to, reduction, oxidation, alkylation, acylation, and hydrolysis reactions which are commonly known to those skilled in the art. In some cases the order of carrying out the following reaction schemes, and/or reaction steps, may be varied to facilitate the reaction or to avoid unwanted reaction products.

[0064] Compounds of formula (I) of the present invention can be prepared according to the general sequence of reactions outlined below wherein X, Ar1, R1, R2, R3, R4, R5a, R5b and p are as defined for formula (I).



[0065] Compounds of formula (I) are prepared by reaction of an amine of Structure 1, or a salt such as a HCl salt thereof, with an acid of Structure 2 (L1 = OH) in the presence of an amide-coupling reagent such as TBTU, HATU, COMU, EDC, DCC or PyBOP and a base like DIPEA or TEA in a solvent such as MeCN or DMF; or the corresponding acyl chloride (L1 = Cl) and a base like DIPEA or TEA in a solvent like DCM.

[0066] Compounds of Structure 1 may be prepared by one of the synthetic pathways described below.

[0067] Compounds of Structure 1 may be prepared by the procedure illustrated in Reaction Scheme A. A Boc-protected amino aryl or heteroaryl aldehyde or ketone derivative A-1, either commercially available or prepared following the procedure described by Schadendorf T et al., Tetrahedron Letters (2007), 48(51), 9044-9047, can be aminated by treatment with an amino ester in the presence of a reductive reagent like NaBH4, NaBH3CN, NaBH(OAc)3 in a solvent like DCM, MeOH, THF; and in the case of R4 = alkyl, in the presence of a titanium salt like TiCl4 or tetraisopropyl-orthotitanate, to give the aminoester A-2. The ester A-2 can be saponified by treatment with a base like LiOH in a mixture of water/THF or water/MeOH to deliver the acid A-3. Condensation of the acid A-3 with an amine HNR1R2 after activation of the acid with POCl3/pyridine or oxalyl chloride in DCM gives the amide A-4. The amide A-4 is Boc-deprotected by treatment with 4M HCl in dioxane or with TFA to give the corresponding amine 1.



[0068] Compounds of Structure 1 may alternatively be prepared as illustrated in Reaction Scheme B. Amidation of acid B-1 with an amine HNR1R2 in the presence of EDC hydrochloride and DMAP in a solvent like DCM gives the corresponding amide B-2 which can be Boc-deprotected under standard conditions to furnish intermediates of type B-3. Reductive amination of B-3 can be achieved by treatment with a nitro-aldehyde or -ketone in the presence of a reductive reagent like NaBH4, NaBH3CN, NaBH(OAc)3 in a solvent like DCM, MeOH or THF. The nitro derivative B-4 can be transformed into compounds of structure 1 by reduction with stannous chloride in an alcohol, preferably MeOH.



[0069] Compounds of Structure I may alternatively be prepared as illustrated in Reaction Scheme C. Intermediate C-1 can be acylated with the corresponding acid chlorides in presence of a base like TEA or DIPEA in DCM or by acylation with the corresponding acid activated with an amide-coupling reagent such as COMU, TBTU, HATU, EDC, DCC or PyBOP and a base like DIPEA or TEA in a solvent such as DCM, MeCN or DMF to deliver the acylated ketal or acetal C-2. Deprotection of the ketal or acetal carried out in the presence of an acid like aq. HCI or p-toluene sulfonic acid in a dioxane water mixture gives the corresponding aldehyde or ketone C-3. Reductive amination with an amino ester in the presence of a reductive reagent like NaBH4, NaBH3CN, NaBH(OAc)3 in a solvent like DCM, MeOH or THF delivers the ester intermediate C-4 which can saponified by treatment with a base like LiOH in a mixture of water/THF or water/MeOH to deliver the acid C-5. Condensation of the acid C-5 with an amine HNR1R2 after activation of the acid with POCl3/pyridine or oxalyl chloride in DCM gives the product I. Amidation of the acid C-5 with an amine HNR1R2 can also be done in the presence of an amide-coupling reagent such as TBTU, HATU, COMU, EDC, DCC, si-DCC or PyBOP and a base like DIPEA or TEA in a solvent such as MeCN or DMF to deliver compound of structure 1.



[0070] Compounds of Structure I may also be prepared as illustrated in Reaction Scheme D. Intermediate D-1 can be acylated from the corresponding acid chlorides in presence of a base like TEA or DIPEA in DCM or by acylation with the corresponding acid activated with an amide-coupling reagent such as COMU, TBTU, HATU, EDC, DCC or PyBOP and a base like DIPEA or TEA in a solvent such as DCM, MeCN or DMF to deliver the acylated ketal or acetal D-2. Deprotection of the ketal or acetal carried out in the presence of an acid like aqueous HCI or p-toluene sulfonic acid in a dioxane water mixture gives the corresponding aldehyde or ketone D-3. Reductive amination with an amine of type B-3 in the presence of a reductive reagent like NaBH4, NaBH3CN, NaBH(OAc)3 in a solvent like DCM, MeOH or THF delivers the product I.



[0071] Final compounds of the present invention may be prepared as illustrated in Reaction Scheme E. For example, intermediate E-2 can be prepared from an aldehyde or ketone of general formula E-1, with L2 = halogen like Cl, Br, I by reductive amination with an amine of type B-3 in the presence of a reductive reagent like NaBH4, NaBH3CN, NaBH(OAc)3 in a solvent like DCM, MeOH or THF. Condensation of E-2 with a carboxamide of type H2NCO-X-R3 can be accomplished by metal catalysed conditions employing for example copper catalysts in the presence of diamines like N,N'-dimethylethylendiamine, or palladium catalysts in the presence of a strong base like sodium t-butoxyde in toluene, THF or dioxane at temperatures between 60°C and 110°C to give final compounds of type I.



[0072] Final compounds of the present invention may be prepared as illustrated in Reaction Scheme E. For example, intermediate F-2 can be prepared from an halogenated amino derivative of general formula F-1, with L3= halogen like Cl, Br, I by acylation of it with the corresponding acid chlorides in presence of a base like TEA or DIPEA in DCM or by acylation with the corresponding acid activated with an amide-coupling reagent such as COMU, TBTU, HATU, EDC, DCC or PyBOP and a base like DIPEA or TEA in a solvent such as DCM, MeCN or DMF. Substitution of L3 on F-2 with an ammoniomethyltrifluoroborate derivative of type F-3, itself obtained by condensation of the amine of type B-3 with potassium chloromethyltrifluoroborate in THF, or a mixture of THF/n-BuOH at 80°C, can be accomplished under Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction conditions in the presence of a palladium salt, like Pd(OAc)2, a phosphine ligand, preferentially XPhos in the presence of a base like Cs2CO3 in THF, dioxane or a mixture of THF/H2O 10:1 at 80-100°C °C to give the final compound I.

[0073] Whenever the compounds of formula (I) are obtained in the form of mixtures of enantiomers, the enantiomers can be separated using methods known to one skilled in the art: e.g. by formation and separation of diastereomeric salts or by HPLC over a chiral stationary phase such as a Regis Whelk-O1(R,R) (10 µm) column, a Daicel ChiralCel OD-H (5-10 µm) column, or a Daicel ChiralPak IA (10 µm), IC (5 µm) or AD-H (5 µm) column. Typical conditions of chiral HPLC are an isocratic mixture of eluent A (EtOH or EtOAc, in presence or absence of an amine such as triethylamine or diethylamine) and eluent B (heptane, in presence or absence of an amine such as triethylamine or diethylamine), at a flow rate of 0.8 to 150 mL/min.

II. Biological Assays


In vitro assay



[0193] The CXCI12 receptor and CXCR7 agonistic activities of the compounds of formula (I) are determined in accordance with the following experimental method.

[0194] The assay is using the PathHunter™ CHO-K1 CXCR7 b-arrestin cell line from DiscoverX. The system is based on the Enzyme Fragment Complementation Technology. Two complementing fragments of the b-galactosidase enzyme are expressed within stably transfected cells. The larger portion of b-gal, termed EA for Enzyme Acceptor, is fused to the C-terminus of b-arrestin 2. The smaller fragment, termed ProLink™ tag, is fused to CXCR7 at the C-terminus. Upon activation, b-arrestin is recruited which forces the interaction of ProLink and EA, allowing complementation of the two fragments of b-gal and the formation of a functional enzyme which is capable of hydrolysing the substrate and generating a chemiluminescent signal.

[0195] CHO-K1 CXCR7 b-arrestin cells are detached from culture dishes with a cell dissociation buffer (Invitrogen, #13151-014) and collected in growing medium (F12 HAMS 90 %(v/v) /FCS 10%(v/v), Penicilin/streptomycin 1 %(v/v)). 5000 cells per well (in 20 µl) are seeded in a 384 well plate (white-walled, clear bottom; BD Falcon # 353274). The plate is incubated at 37°C / 5% CO2 for 24 hours. Medium is then replaced by 20 µl OPTIMEM (Invitrogen #31985) for 3 to 4 hours. Test compounds are dissolved at 10mM in DMSO and serially diluted in DMSO to 200X of the final concentration for dose response curves. Compounds are then diluted 1:33.3 in HBSS1X. 5µl / well of HBSS1X / 20mM HEPES / 0.2% BSA are added to the assay plate followed by addition of 5µl / well of diluted compounds. CXCL12 (Peprotech #300-28A) may be used as a reference agonist. The plate is incubated for 90 minutes at 37°C. 12 µl of detection reagent (Path Hunter Detection Kit, DiscoveRx, #93-0001) is transferred to the assay plate and to the plate is incubated for 1 hour at room temperature. Luminescent signal is read in a microplate reader (FLUOstar Optima, bmg). The calculated EC50 values may fluctuate depending on the daily cellular assay performance. Fluctuations of this kind are known to those skilled in the art. Average EC50 values from several measurements are given as geometric mean values.
