    Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION


    FIELD



    [0001] The present disclosure relates to kinase inhibitors which selectively modulate kinases, and uses therefor. Particular embodiments contemplate disease indications which are amenable to treatment by modulation of kinase activity.

    BACKGROUND



    [0002] Receptor protein kinases regulate key signal transduction cascades that control or are involved in the control of a plethora of physiological functions including cellular growth and proliferation, cell differentiation, cellular development, cell division, cell adhesion, stress response, short-range contact-mediated axonal guidance, transcription regulation, aberrant mitogenesis, angiogenesis, abnormal endothelial cell-cell or cell-matrix interactions during vascular development, inflammation, lymphohematopoietic stem cell activity, protective immunity against specific bacteria, allergic asthma, aberrant tissue-specific responses to the activation of the JNK signal transduction pathway, cell transformation, memory, apoptosis, competitive activity-dependent synapse modification at the neuromuscular synapse, immunological mediation of disease, and calcium regulation.

    [0003] Exemplary disease states associated with aberrant regulation of protein kinases include, for example without limitation, acrocephalo-syndactyly type I, acute myeloid leukemia, AIDS-induced non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, arthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, atopic dermatitis, autoimmune diseases, bacterial infection, bladder cancer, cancer of the breast, cancer of the central nervous system, cancer of the colon, cancer of the endometrium, cancer of the fallopian tube, cancer of the gastrointestinal tract, cancer of the ovary, heart failure, chronic myeloid leukemia, colon carcinoma, colorectal cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Crouzon Syndrome, diabetes, diabetic nephropathy, emphysema, endometriosis, epidermoid cancer, fibrotic disorders, gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), glomerulonephritis, Graves' disease, head injury, hepatocellular carcinoma, Hirschsprung's disease, human gliomas, immunodeficiency diseases, inflammatory disorders, ischemic stroke, Jackson-Weiss syndrome, leiomyosarcoma, leukemias, lupus nephritis, malignant melanoma, malignant nephrosclerosis, mastocytosis, mast cell tumors, melanoma of the colon, MEN2 syndromes, metabolic disorders, migraine, multiple sclerosis, myeloproliferative disorders, nephritis, neurodegenerative diseases, neurotraumatic diseases, lung cancer, non small cell lung cancer, organ transplant rejection, osteoporosis, pain, Parkinson's disease, Pfeiffer Syndrome, polycystic kidney disease, primary lymphoedema, prostate cancer, psoriasis, vascular restenosis, rheumatoid arthritis, dermal and tissue scarring, selective T-cell defect (STD), severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), small cell lung cancer, spinal cord injury, squamous cell carcinoma, systemic lupus erythematosis, testicular cancer, thrombotic microangiopathy syndromes, Wegener's granulomatosis, X-linked agammaglobulinemia, viral infection, diabetic retinopathy, alopecia, erectile dysfunction, macular degeneration, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), neurofibromatosis, and tuberous sclerosis.

    [0004] The identification of activating BRAF mutations (primarily missense substitutions for Valine-600 or BRAFV600) in cancer supports a functionally important role for BRAF in the pathogenesis of these malignancies (Davies, H. et al. Nature 417, 949-954 (2002)). Specific BRAF inhibitors including vemurafenib and dabrafenib have demonstrated both objective tumor response and, in the case of vemurafenib, overall survival benefit in mutant BRAFV600 driven melanoma (Flaherty, K. T. et al. N Engl J Med 363, 809-819 (2010); Chapman, P. B. et al. N Engl J Med 364, 2507-2516 (2011); Sosman, J. A. et al. N Engl J Med 366, 707-714 (2012); Hauschild, A. et al. Lancet 380, 358-365 (2012); Bollag, G. et al. Nature 467, 596-599 (2010); and Stellwagen, J. C. et al. Bioorg Med Chem Lett 21, 4436-4440 (2011)). The clinical effectiveness of BRAF inhibitor-based therapy depends on complete abolition of the MAPK pathway output in tumors harboring BRAF mutations (Bollag, G. et al. Nature 467, 596-599 (2010)). However these compounds paradoxically activate the MAPK pathway in cells bearing oncogenic RAS or elevated upstream receptor signaling (Hatzivassiliou, G. et al. Nature 464, 431-435 (2010); Heidorn, S. J. et al. Cell 140, 209-221 (2010); and Poulikakos, P. I., Zhang, C., Bollag, G., Shokat, K. M. & Rosen, N. Nature 464, 427-430 (2010)). This activation can lead to cellular proliferation and has been associated clinically with appearance of cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cuSCC) and keratoacanthomas (KAs), sometimes within weeks of initiation of therapy (Hauschild, A. et al. Lancet 380, 358-365 (2012); Bollag, G. et al. Nature 467, 596-599 (2010); Huang, V., Hepper, D., Anadkat, M. & Cornelius, L. Arch Dermatol 148, 628-633 (2012); and Anforth, R. M. et al. Br J Dermatol 167, 1153-1160 (2012)). Reference is also made to WO 2009/137391 A2, which discloses benzene sulfonamide thiazole and oxazole compounds. Accordingly, there is a need in the art for compounds and methods of use thereof for modulation of receptor protein kinases. The disclosure herein meets this and other needs.

    BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS



    [0010] 

    Figure 1. Paradox Breakers, e.g. compounds containing -N(R3)S(O)2Y moiety dissociate MAPK pathway inhibition from the opposing pathway activation property, (a) pERK IC50 curves in the A375 (BRAFV600E) cell line and pERK EC50 curves in the B9 (HRASQ61L) and IPC-298 (NRASQ61L) cell lines. For EC50, the data were normalized to the pERK level induced by 10 µM compound P-1000 (set as 100%). (b) Immunoblot analysis of pERK in human SCC cell line A431 and human breast carcinoma cell line SKBR3 treated by vemurafenib or a compound of formula (I), e.g. compound A. (c) Compound A and vemurafenib treatments inhibited the growth of COLO205 human colorectal cancer xenografts. (d) B9 cells displayed increased anchorage independent cell growth in the presence of increasing concentrations of vemurafenib and compound P-1000 whereas a compound of formula (I), e.g. compound A had no effect, (e) B9 subcutaneous xenografts were stimulated by vemurafenib administered at 50mg/kg, but not by compound A at the same dose (and exposure).

    Figure 2. A link between EGFR signaling and vemurafenib-induced cuSCC. (a) Hierarchical clustering of the 239 Affymetrix gene probes (see Table 4 for a complete list) that showed altered expression in B9 cells in response to either vemurafenib (233 probes) or a compound of formula (I), e.g. compound A (4 probes) treatment. The single overlap, Cyp1b1, and four representative MAPK pathway-responsive genes as well as three genes that encode EGFR ligands are marked. The inset shows the fold change in the expression of four EGFR ligands along with EGFR itself, (b) vemurafenib, but not compound A, induced TGFα protein expression in B9 cells. (c) Exogenous TGFα stimulated the anchorage-independent growth of B9 cells. (d) Erlotinib inhibited vemurafenib-induced growth of B9 cells.

    Figure 3. Illustration of the differentiating molecular mechanism of Paradox Breakers, e.g. compounds containing a sulfamoylamino moiety or reference compounds of formula (I') or (I), (a) Comparative binding of the N-ethylmethyl-sulfamoid tail in compound A (with carbon atoms in green) and that of the propyl-sulfonamide tail of vemurafenib (with carbon atoms in cyan). The complexes are viewed from the dimer interfaces. The N-lobe is removed to show the inhibitor and its interaction with the four-residue R-spine (Leu505, Ile527, Leu567 and Phe595) and αC helix (orange). A dotted surface around the N-methyl group in compound A illustrates its close contact with the R-spine residue Leu505. Phe595 of the DFG motif is depicted as spheres to indicate the DFG-in conformation of the activation loop (Type 1 binding mode). Other pocket residues are rendered in sticks; (b) BRAF-CRAF heterodimers in B9 and IPC-298 cells after one hour treatment with increasing concentrations of compound A or vemurafenib, (c) pMEK and growth IC50 curves for vemurafenib and compound A in the SKMEL-239 parental cell line and a representative vemurafenib-resistant clone (C3) that expresses a spliced variant of BRAFV600E. Vemurafenib-resistant cells remain relatively sensitive to Paradox Breakers.

    Figure 4. The structural determinant of Paradox Breakers, the N-ethylmethyl-sulfamoyl group, can be transferred to another chemical series to drastically change its biological profile. Dabrafenib, a highly potent inhibitor of pERK in BRAFV600E cell lines, exhibited an unusual bell-shaped pERK activation curve in mutant NRAS cell lines (B9 and IPC-298). Substituting the 2,6-difluoro-phenylsulfonamide with N-ethylmethylsulfamoid resulted in a compound (P-0352) that shows markedly reduced pERK activation in mutant RAS cells with only a moderate decrease in pERK IC50 in BRAFV600E cell line (A375).

    Figure 5. Compounds containing sulfamoylamino moiety, for example, compounds of formula (I), such as compound A, and vemurafenib show similar potency in blocking pERK signaling in (a) human BRAFV600E melanoma cell COLO829 but in (b) RAS activated human colorectal carcinoma cell line HCT116 (KRASG13D), (c) EGFR-overexpressed human SCC cell line A431 or (d) HER2-overexpressed human breast carcinoma cell line SKBR3, vemurafenib paradoxically activates MAPK signaling whereas compound A causes negligible pERK increase. The pERK curves in COLO829 and HCT116 were generated using AlphaScreen® assay. (c) and (d) Quantification of the immunoblots in Figure 1c.

    Figure 6. Vemurafenib significantly induces the expression of EGFR ligands in transformed keratinocytes. (a) vemurafenib's upregulation of AREG protein in B9 cell supernatant and (b) its upregulation of HB-EGF in B9 cell lysates were confirmed by ELISA assay. Compounds containing sulfamoylamino moiety, for example, compounds of formula (I), don't induce the expression of EGFR ligands. (c) and (d) Exogenous EGFR ligands AREG and HB-EGF recapitulate the growth stimulating effect of vemurafenib.

    Figure 7. Modulation of RAF dimerization by RAF inhibitors, (a) Immunoblots of lysates detecting endogenous BRAF-CRAF heterodimer. With the exception of Paradox Breaker, for example, e.g. compounds containing a sulfamoylamino moiety or compounds of formula (I), all known RAF inhibitors induce BRAF-CRAF dimer formation, (b) Biochemical dimerization assays using recombinant kinase domains show that a compound of formula (I), e.g. compound A interrupts the formation of BRAF-CRAF heterodimer and CRAF homodimer.

    [0037] When two substituents are present on adjacent atoms of a substituted aryl or a substituted heteroaryl ring, such substituents may optionally be replaced with a substituent of the formula -T-C(O)-(CH2)q-U-, wherein T and U are independently -NH-, -O-, -CH2- or a single bond, and q is an integer of from 0 to 2. Alternatively, when two substituents are present on adjacent atoms of a substituted aryl or a substituted heteroaryl ring, such substituents may optionally be replaced with a substituent of the formula -A-(CH2)r-B-, wherein A and B are independently -CH2-, -O-, -NH-, -S-, -S(O)-, -S(O)2-, -S(O)2NR'- or a single bond, and r is an integer of from 1 to 3. One of the single bonds of the new ring so formed may optionally be replaced with a double bond. Alternatively, when two substituents are present on adjacent atoms of a substituted aryl or a substituted heteroaryl ring, such substituents may optionally be replaced with a substituent of the formula -(CH2)s-X-(CH2)t-, where s and t are independently integers of from 0 to 3, and X is -O-, -NR'-, -S-, -S(O)-, -S(O)2-, or -S(O)2NR'-. The substituent R' in -NR'- and -S(O)2NR'- is selected from hydrogen or unsubstituted C1-6 alkyl.

    [0038] "Protecting group" refers to a grouping of atoms that when attached to a reactive group in a molecule masks, reduces or prevents that reactivity. Examples of protecting groups can be found in T.W. Greene and P.G. Wuts, PROTECTIVE GROUPS IN ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, (Wiley, 4th ed. 2006), Beaucage and Iyer, Tetrahedron 48:2223-2311 (1992), and Harrison and Harrison et al., COMPENDIUM OF SYNTHETIC ORGANIC METHODS, Vols. 1-8 (John Wiley and Sons. 1971-1996).

    [0039] As used herein, the term "composition" refers to a formulation suitable for administration to an intended animal subject for therapeutic purposes that contains at least one pharmaceutically active compound and at least one pharmaceutically acceptable carrier or excipient.

    [0040] The term "pharmaceutically acceptable" indicates that the indicated material does not have properties that would cause a reasonably prudent medical practitioner to avoid administration of the material to a patient, taking into consideration the disease or conditions to be treated and the respective route of administration. For example, it is commonly required that such a material be essentially sterile, e.g., for injectables.

    [0041] "Pharmaceutically acceptable salt" refers to a salt which is acceptable for administration to a patient, such as a mammal (e.g., salts having acceptable mammalian safety for a given dosage regime). Such salts can be derived from pharmaceutically-acceptable inorganic or organic bases and from pharmaceutically-acceptable inorganic or organic acids, depending on the particular substituents found on the compounds described herein. When compounds disclosed herein contain relatively acidic functionalities, base addition salts can be obtained by contacting the neutral form of such compounds with a sufficient amount of the desired base, either neat or in a suitable inert solvent. Salts derived from pharmaceutically- acceptable inorganic bases include aluminum, ammonium, calcium, copper, ferric, ferrous, lithium, magnesium, manganic, manganous, potassium, sodium, zinc and the like. Salts derived from pharmaceutically-acceptable organic bases include salts of primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary amines, including substituted amines, cyclic amines, naturally-occurring amines and the like, such as arginine, betaine, caffeine, choline, N, N'- dibenzylethylenediamine, diethylamine, 2-diethylaminoethanol, 2- dimethylaminoethanol, ethanolamine, ethylenediamine, N-ethylmorpholine, N-ethylpiperidine, glucamine, glucosamine, histidine, hydrabamine, isopropylamine, lysine, methylglucamine, morpholine, piperazine, piperidine, polyamine resins, procaine, purines, theobromine, triethylamine, trimethylamine, tripropylamine, tromethamine and the like. When compounds disclosed herein contain relatively basic functionalities, acid addition salts can be obtained by contacting the neutral form of such compounds with a sufficient amount of the desired acid, either neat or in a suitable inert solvent. Salts derived from pharmaceutically-acceptable acids include acetic, ascorbic, benzenesulfonic, benzoic, camphosulfonic, citric, ethanesulfonic, fumaric, gluconic, glucoronic, glutamic, hippuric, hydrobromic, hydrochloric, isethionic, lactic, lactobionic, maleic, malic, mandelic, methanesulfonic, mucic, naphthalenesulfonic, nicotinic, nitric, pamoic, pantothenic, phosphoric, succinic, sulfuric, tartaric, p-toluenesulfonic and the like.

    [0042] Also included are salts of amino acids such as arginate and the like, and salts of organic acids like glucuronic or galactunoric acids and the like (see, for example, Berge, S. M. et al, "Pharmaceutical Salts", J. Pharmaceutical Science, 1977, 66:1 -19). Certain specific compounds disclosed herein contain both basic and acidic functionalities that allow the compounds to be converted into either base or acid addition salts.

    [0043] The neutral forms of the compounds may be regenerated by contacting the salt with a base or acid and isolating the parent compound in the conventional manner. The parent form of the compound differs from the various salt forms in certain physical properties, such as solubility in polar solvents, but otherwise the salts are equivalent to the parent form of the compound for the purposes of the disclosure.

    [0044] In the present context, the term "therapeutically effective" or "effective amount" indicates that the materials or amount of material is effective to prevent, alleviate, or ameliorate one or more symptoms of a disease or medical condition, and/or to prolong the survival of the subject being treated. The therapeutically effective amount will vary depending on the compound, the disease, disorder or condition and its severity and the age, weight, etc., of the mammal to be treated. In general, satisfactory results in subjects are indicated to be obtained at a daily dosage of from about 0.1 to about 10 g/kg subject body weight. In some embodiments, a daily dose ranges from about 0.10 to 10.0 mg/kg of body weight, from about 1.0 to 3.0 mg/kg of body weight, from about 3 to 10 mg/kg of body weight, from about 3 to 150 mg/kg of body weight, from about 3 to 100 mg/kg of body weight, from about 10 to 100 mg/kg of body weight, from about 10 to 150 mg/kg of body weight, or from about 150 to 1000 mg/kg of body weight. The dosage can be conveniently administered, e.g., in divided doses up to four times a day or in sustained-release form.

    [0045] In the present context, the terms "synergistically effective" or "synergistic effect" indicate that two or more compounds that are therapeutically effective, when used in combination, provide improved therapeutic effects greater than the additive effect that would be expected based on the effect of each compound used by itself.

    [0046] By "assaying" is meant the creation of experimental conditions and the gathering of data regarding a particular result of the exposure to specific experimental conditions. For example, enzymes can be assayed based on their ability to act upon a detectable substrate. A compound can be assayed based on its ability to bind to a particular target molecule or molecules.

    [0047] As used herein, the terms "ligand" and "modulator" are used equivalently to refer to a compound that changes (i.e., increases or decreases) the activity of a target biomolecule, e.g., an enzyme such as a kinase. Generally a ligand or modulator will be a small molecule, where "small molecule refers to a compound with a molecular weight of 1500 Daltons or less, or preferably 1000 Daltons or less, 800 Daltons or less, or 600 Daltons or less. Thus, an "improved ligand" is one that possesses better pharmacological and/or pharmacokinetic properties than a reference compound, where "better" can be defined by one skilled in the relevant art for a particular biological system or therapeutic use.

    [0048] The term "binds" in connection with the interaction between a target and a potential binding compound indicates that the potential binding compound associates with the target to a statistically significant degree as compared to association with proteins generally (i.e., non-specific binding). Thus, the term "binding compound" refers to a compound that has a statistically significant association with a target molecule. Preferably a binding compound interacts with a specified target with a dissociation constant (KD) of 1 mM or less, 1 µM or less, 100 nM or less, 10 nM or less, or 1 nM or less.

    [0049] In the context of compounds binding to a target, the terms "greater affinity" and "selective" indicates that the compound binds more tightly than a reference compound, or than the same compound in a reference condition, i.e., with a lower dissociation constant. In some embodiments, the greater affinity is at least 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 50, 100, 200, 400, 500, 1000, or 10,000-fold greater affinity. The term "selective" also refers to a compound that selectively inhibits RAF kinase relative to other 287 kinases, i.e. a compound having an IC50 of less than 500 nm, less than 100 nM, less than 50 nM, less than 20 nM, less than 10 nM, less than 5 nM, or less than 1 nM as determined in a generally accepted RAF kinase activity assay and when determined in a comparable generally accepted other kinases activity assay will have a ratio of IC50 for other kinases divided by the IC50 for RAF kinase of >20, also >30, also >40, also >50, also >60, also >70, also >80, also >90, also >100. Such compounds are effective in treating a disease or condition that is RAF protein kinase mediated, without effecting other protein kinases. Such compounds are preferably, but not necessarily, selective with respect to other protein kinases, i.e. when compared to another protein kinase, the IC50 for the other kinase divided by the IC50 for RAF kinase is >20, also >30, also >40, also >50, also >60, also >70, also >80, also >90, also >100. Preferably, the compounds are selective relative to other protein kinases including, but not limited to, wild type BRAF and CRAF kinases. While it is understood that a RAF selective inhibitor may be used to treat any RAF protein kinase mediated disease or condition, the RAF selectivity provides beneficial effects in treating certain diseases or conditions, including, but not limiting to, melanoma, metastatic melanoma, thyroid cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer and ovarian cancer.

    [0050] As used herein in connection with compounds disclosed herein, the term "synthesizing" and like terms means chemical synthesis from one or more precursor materials. Further, by "assaying" is meant the creation of experimental conditions and the gathering of data regarding a particular result of the experimental conditions. For example, enzymes can be assayed based on their ability to act upon a detectable substrate. A compound or ligand can be assayed based on its ability to bind to a particular target molecule or molecules.

    [0051] As used herein, the term "modulating" or "modulate" or "regulating" refers to an effect of altering a biological activity, especially a biological activity associated with a particular biomolecule such as a protein kinase. For example, an agonist or antagonist of a particular biomolecule modulates the activity of that biomolecule, e.g., an enzyme, by either increasing (e.g. agonist, activator), or decreasing (e.g. antagonist, inhibitor) the activity of the biomolecule, such as an enzyme. Such activity is typically indicated in terms of an inhibitory concentration (IC50) or excitation concentration (EC50) of the compound for an inhibitor or activator, respectively, with respect to, for example, an enzyme.

    [0052] Esters of a compound of Formula I or a compound of any of the subgeneric formulas can be prepared through functionalization of hydroxyl and/or carboxyl groups that may be present within the molecular structure of the compound. Amides and prodrugs can also be prepared using techniques known to those skilled in the art. For example, amides may be prepared from esters, using suitable amine reactants, or they may be prepared from anhydride or an acid chloride by reaction with ammonia or a lower alkyl amine. Moreover, esters, urease, sulfonamides, and amides of a compound of Formula I or a compound of any of the subgeneric formulas can be made by reaction with a carbonylating agent (e.g., ethyl formate, acetic anhydride, methoxyacetyl chloride, benzoyl chloride, methyl isocyanate, ethyl chloroformate) or methanesulfonyl chloride and a suitable base (e.g., 4-dimethylaminopyridine, pyridine, triethylamine, potassium carbonate) in a suitable organic solvent (e.g., tetrahydrofuran, acetone, methanol, pyridine, N,N-dimethylformamide) at a temperature of from 0 to 60 °C. Prodrugs are typically prepared by covalent attachment of a moiety, which results in a compound that is therapeutically inactive until modified by an individual's metabolic system.

    [0053] "Tautomer" means compounds produced by the phenomenon wherein a proton of one atom of a molecule shifts to another atom. See, Jerry March, Advanced Organic Chemistry: Reactions, Mechanisms and Structures, Fourth Edition, John Wiley & Sons, pages 69-74 (1992). The tautomers also refer to one of two or more structural isomers that exist in equilibrium and are readily converted from one isomeric form to another. Examples of include keto-enol tautomers, such as acetone/propen-2-ol, imine-enamine tautomers and the like, ring-chain tautomers, such as glucose/2,3,4,5,6-pentahydroxy-hexanal and the like, the tautomeric forms of heteroaryl groups containing a -N=C(H)-NH- ring atom arrangement, such as pyrazoles, imidazoles, benzimidazoles, triazoles, and tetrazoles. Where the compound contains, for example, a keto or oxime group or an aromatic moiety, tautomeric isomerism ('tautomerism') can occur. The compounds described herein may have one or more tautomers and therefore include various isomers. A person of ordinary skill in the art would recognize that other tautomeric ring atom arrangements are possible. All such isomeric forms of these compounds are expressly included in this disclosure.

    [0054] "Isomers" mean compounds having identical molecular formulae but differ in the nature or sequence of bonding of their atoms or in the arrangement of their atoms in space. Isomers that differ in the arrangement of their atoms in space are termed "stereoisomers". "Stereoisomer" and "stereoisomers" refer to compounds that exist in different stereoisomeric forms if they possess one or more asymmetric centers or a double bond with asymmetric substitution and, therefore, can be produced as individual stereoisomers or as mixtures. Stereoisomers include enantiomers and diastereomers. Stereoisomers that are not mirror images of one another are termed "diastereomers" and those that are non-superimposable mirror images of each other are termed "enantiomers". When a compound has an asymmetric center, for example, it is bonded to four different groups, a pair of enantiomers is possible. An enantiomer can be characterized by the absolute configuration of its asymmetric center and is described by the R- and S-sequencing rules of Cahn and Prelog, or by the manner in which the molecule rotates the plane of polarized light and designated as dextrorotatory or levorotatory (i.e., as (+) or (-)-isomers respectively). A chiral compound can exist as either individual enantiomer or as a mixture thereof. A mixture containing equal proportions of the enantiomers is called a "racemic mixture". Unless otherwise indicated, the description is intended to include individual stereoisomers as well as mixtures. The methods for the determination of stereochemistry and the separation of stereoisomers are well-known in the art (see discussion in Chapter 4 of ADVANCED ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, 6th edition J. March, John Wiley and Sons, New York, 2007) differ in the chirality of one or more stereocenters.

    [0055] Certain compounds disclosed herein can exist in unsolvated forms as well as solvated forms, including hydrated forms. "Hydrate" refers to a complex formed by combination of water molecules with molecules or ions of the solute. "Solvate" refers to a complex formed by combination of solvent molecules with molecules or ions of the solute. The solvent can be an organic compound, an inorganic compound, or a mixture of both. Solvate is meant to include hydrate. Some examples of solvents include, but are not limited to, methanol, N,N-dimethylformamide, tetrahydrofuran, dimethylsulfoxide, and water. In general, the solvated forms are equivalent to unsolvated forms and are encompassed within the scope of the present disclosure. Certain compounds disclosed herein may exist in multiple crystalline or amorphous forms. In general, all physical forms are equivalent for the uses contemplated by this disclosure and are intended to be within the scope of the present disclosure.

    [0056] In the context of the use, testing, or screening of compounds that are or may be modulators, the term "contacting" means that the compound(s) are caused to be in sufficient proximity to a particular molecule, complex, cell, tissue, organism, or other specified material that potential binding interactions and/or chemical reaction between the compound and other specified material can occur.

    [0057] As used herein, the term "subject" refers to a living organism that is treated with compounds as described herein, including, but not limited to, any mammal, such as a human, other primates, sports animals, animals of commercial interest such as cattle, farm animals such as horses, or pets such as dogs and cats.

    [0058] "Solid form" refers to a solid preparation (i.e. a preparation that is neither gas nor liquid) of a pharmaceutically active compound that is suitable for administration to an intended animal subject for therapeutic purposes. The solid form includes any complex, such as a salt, co-crystal or an amorphous complex, as well as any polymorph of the compound. The solid form may be substantially crystalline, semi-crystalline or substantially amorphous. The solid form may be administered directly or used in the preparation of a suitable composition having improved pharmaceutical properties. For example, the solid form may be used in a formulation comprising at least one pharmaceutically acceptable carrier or excipient.

    [0059] "Pain" or a "pain condition" can be acute and/or chronic pain, including, without limitation, arachnoiditis; arthritis (e.g. osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout); back pain (e.g. sciatica, ruptured disc, spondylolisthesis, radiculopathy); burn pain; cancer pain; dysmenorrhea; headaches (e.g. migraine, cluster headaches, tension headaches); head and facial pain (e.g. cranial neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia); hyperalgesia; hyperpathia; inflammatory pain (e.g. pain associated with irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, cystitis, pain from bacterial, fungal or viral infection); keloid or scar tissue formation; labor or delivery pain; muscle pain (e.g. as a result of polymyositis, dermatomyositis, inclusion body myositis, repetitive stress injury (e.g. writer's cramp, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tenosynovitis)); myofascial pain syndromes (e.g. fibromyalgia); neuropathic pain (e.g. diabetic neuropathy, causalgia, entrapment neuropathy, brachial plexus avulsion, occipital neuralgia, gout, reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, phantom limb or post-amputation pain, postherpetic neuralgia, central pain syndrome, or nerve pain resulting from trauma (e.g. nerve injury), disease (e.g. diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Guillan-Barre Syndrome, myasthenia gravis, neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or cancer treatment); pain associated with skin disorders (e.g. shingles, herpes simplex, skin tumors, cysts, neurofibromatosis); sports injuries (e.g. cuts, sprains, strains, bruises, dislocations, fractures, spinal cord, head); spinal stenosis; surgical pain; tactile allodynia; temporomandibular disorders; vascular disease or injury (e.g. vasculitis, coronary artery disease, reperfusion injury (e.g. following ischemia, stroke, or myocardial infarcts)); other specific organ or tissue pain (e.g. ocular pain, corneal pain, bone pain, heart pain, visceral pain (e.g. kidney, gallbladder, gastrointestinal), joint pain, dental pain, pelvic hypersensitivity, pelvic pain, renal colic, urinary incontinence); other disease associated pain (e.g. sickle cell anemia, AIDS, herpes zoster, psoriasis, endometriosis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), silicosis, pulmonary sarcoidosis, esophagitis, heart burn, gastroesophageal reflux disorder, stomach and duodenal ulcers, functional dyspepsia, bone resorption disease, osteoporosis, cerebral malaria, bacterial meningitis); or pain due to graft v. host rejection or allograft rejections.

    [0060] As used herein, "MAPK" refers to the mitogen-activated protein kinase. MAPK pathway is an important second signal transduction pathway that affects HIF-1α level and activity, and may also affect MN/CA9 expression. Multiple lines of evidence indicate that the MAPK pathway is important in human cancer. This pivotal pathway relays extracellular signals to the nucleus via a cascade of specific phosphorylation events involving Ras, Raf, MEK, and ERK to regulate fundamental cellular processes, including proliferation, differentiation, and cell survival (Kolch, W., Biochem. J, 351: 289-305 (2000); and Lu and Xu, IUBMB Life, 58(11): 621-631 (2006)). Inappropriate Ras activation is associated with nearly a third of all human cancers (Downward, J. Nat Rev Cancer, 3: 11-22 (2003)). One of the Raf isoforms, BRAF, is mutated in many cancers, including malignant melanoma (27-70%), papillary thyroid cancer (36-53%), ovarian cancer (30%) and colorectal cancer (5-22%), and the mutations are frequently gain-of-function substitutions that result in constitutive activity Messersmith et al., Clin Adv. Hematol. Oncol., 4(11): 831-836 (2006); Garnett and Marais, Cancer Cell, 6: 313-319 (2004)). ERK is elevated in nearly 50% of breast cancers and is associated with a poor prognosis (Messersmith et al. (2006)).

    [0061] "Unit dosage form" refers to a composition intended for a single administration to treat a subject suffering from a disease or medical condition. Each unit dosage form typically comprises each of the active ingredients of this disclosure plus pharmaceutically acceptable excipients. Examples of unit dosage forms are individual tablets, individual capsules, bulk powders, liquid solutions, ointments, creams, eye drops, suppositories, emulsions or suspensions. Treatment of the disease or condition may require periodic administration of unit dosage forms, for example: one unit dosage form two or more times a day, one with each meal, one every four hours or other interval, or only one per day. The expression "oral unit dosage form" indicates a unit dosage form designed to be taken orally.

    [0062] The compounds disclosed herein may also contain unnatural proportions of atomic isotopes at one or more of the 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 disclosed herein, whether radioactive or not, are intended to be encompassed within the scope of the disclosure.

    [0063] The term "deuterated" as used herein alone or as part of a group, means substituted deuterium atoms. When a particular position is designated as holding deuterium (stated as "D" or "deuterium"), it is understood that the abundance of deuterium at that position is substantially greater than the natural abundance of deuterium, which is 0.015% (i.e., at least 50.1% incorporation of deuterium).

    [0064] The term "deuterated analog" as used herein alone or as part of a group, means substituted deuterium atoms in place of hydrogen. The deuterated analog of a compound may be a fully or partially deuterium substituted derivative. Preferably the deuterium substituted compound holds a fully or partially deuterium substituted alkyl, aryl or heteroaryl group. In one embodiment, the deuterium substituted compound holds a fully or partially deuterium substituted alkyl group, e.g., -CD3, CD2CD3, - CD2CD2CD3 (n-propyl-D7), -CD(CD3)2 (iso-propyl-D7), -CD2CD2CD2CD3 (n-butyl-D9), -CD2-CD(CD3)2 (iso-butyl-D9) and the like. In another embodiment, the deuterium substituted compound holds a fully or partially deuterium substituted aryl, such as phenyl, e.g., C6D5 or a fully or partially deuterium substituted heteroaryl, e.g., pyrazoly-d2, thiazoly-d2, pyridyl-d3, and the like.

    [0065] As used in connection with binding of a compound with a RAF kinase, e.g., BRAF kinase, the term "interact" means that the distance from a bound compound to a particular amino acid residue will be 5.0 angstroms or less. In particular embodiments, the distance from the compound to the particular amino acid residue is 4.5 angstroms or less, 4.0 angstroms or less, 3.5 angstroms or less, or 3 angstroms or less. Such distances can be determined, for example, using co-crystallography, or estimated using computer fitting of a compound in a BRAF active site.

    [0066] By "binding site" is meant an area of a target molecule to which a ligand can bind non-covalently. Binding sites embody particular shapes and often contain multiple binding pockets' present within the binding site. The particular shapes are often conserved within a class of molecules, such as a molecular family. Binding sites within a class also can contain conserved structures such as, for example, chemical moieties, the presence of a binding pocket, and/or an electrostatic charge at the binding site or some portion of the binding site, all of which can influence the shape of the binding site.

    [0067] As used herein, "binding pocket" is meant a specific volume within a binding site. A binding pocket can often be a particular shape, indentation, or cavity in the binding site. Binding pockets can contain particular chemical groups or structures that are important in the noncovalent binding of another molecule such as, for example, groups that contribute to ionic, hydrogen bonding, or van der Waals interactions between the molecules.

    [0068] As used herein in connection with amino acid or nucleic acid sequence, the term "isolate" indicates that the sequence is separated from at least a portion of the amino acid and/or nucleic acid sequences with which it would normally be associated.

    [0069] In connection with amino acid or nucleic sequences, the term "purified" indicates that the subject molecule constitutes a significantly greater proportion of the biomolecules in a composition than the proportion observed in a prior composition, e.g., in a cell culture. The greater proportion can be 2-fold, 5-fold, 10-fold, or more than 10-fold, with respect to the proportion found in the prior composition.

    [0070] The disclosure also embraces isotopically-labeled compounds disclosed herein which are identical to those recited herein, but for the fact that one or more atoms are replaced by an atom having an atomic mass or mass number different from the atomic mass or mass number usually found in nature. Examples of isotopes that can be incorporated into compounds disclosed herein include isotopes of hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorous, fluorine, and chlorine, such as, but not limited to 2H (deuterium, D), 3H (tritium), 11C, 13C, 14C, 15N, 18F, 31P, 32P, 35S, 36Cl, and 125I. Unless otherwise stated, when a position is designated specifically as "H" or "hydrogen", the position is understood to have hydrogen at its natural abundance isotopic composition or its isotopes, such as deuterium (D) or tritium (3H). Certain isotopically-labeled compounds disclosed herein (e.g., those labeled with 3H and 14C) are useful in compound and/or substrate tissue distribution assays. Tritiated (i.e., 3H) and carbon-14 (i.e., 14C) isotopes are useful for their ease of preparation and detectability. Further, substitution with heavier isotopes such as deuterium (i.e., 2H) may afford certain therapeutic advantages resulting from greater metabolic stability (e.g., increased in vivo half-life or reduced dosage requirements) and hence may be preferred in some circumstances. Isotopically labeled compounds disclosed herein can generally be prepared by following procedures analogous to those disclosed in the Schemes and in the Examples herein below, by substituting an isotopically labeled reagent for a non-isotopically labeled reagent.

    II. General



    [0071] The present disclosure concerns compounds and compounds for use in methods for modulating, regulating, mediating or inhibiting MAPK pathway signaling by regulating the interaction of a RAF inhibitor with a mutant RAF kinase, for example, by selective inhibition of mutant BRAF protein kinases. Surprisingly, the inhibition of a wild type RAF kinase with the compounds as described herein does not induce or cause the activation of MAPK pathway as observed by pERK or pMEK, for instance, in cells having RAS mutation or upstream receptor tyrosine kinase activation.

    IV. Compounds for use in Methods



    [0117] In another aspect, the present disclosure provides a compound for use in a method for regulating or modulating a MAPK pathway signaling. The method includes selectively inhibiting the MAPK pathway in a first cell having a mutant RAF kinase with a compound of formula (Ia) or (Ib) or a compound of any of the subgeneric formulas of formula (Ia) or (Ib), or a compound as described herein, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or a solvate or hydrate thereof, or a composition comprising a compound of formula (Ia) or (Ib) or a compound of any of the subgeneric formulas of formula (Ia) or (Ib), for example, formulas (Ia-1), (Ib-1), (Ic), (Ic-1), (Ic-1a), (Id), (Id-1), (Id-1a), (Ie), (Ie-1), or (Ie-1a), or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or a solvate or hydrate thereof, wherein the compound does not induce the activation of the MAPK pathway in a second cell. In some embodiments, the selectively inhibiting comprises selectively inhibiting a mutant Raf kinase in a first cell. In some embodiments, the mutant RAF kinase is a mutant A-raf kinase, a mutant BRAF kinase, a mutant c-Raf kinase or combinations thereof. In one embodiment, the mutant RAD kinase is a mutant BRAF kinase. In certain embodiments, the mutant Raf kinase is mutant BRAF kinase. In one embodiment, the regulating, modulating or inhibiting of a MAPK pathway signaling can be achieved through regulating the interaction of a BRAF kinase inhibitor as described herein with the Leucine 505 amino acid residue in the C-terminal end of an αC helix, such that there is no activation of MAPK pathway in a second cell as determined by monitoring the levels of pERK and/or pMEK. In one instance, the BRAF inhibitor is in direct contact with the Leucine 505 amino acid residue in the C-terminal end of an αC helix. In some embodiments, the second cell has RAS mutation or upstream receptor tyrosine kinase activation. In some embodiments, the disclosure provides contacting a cell having a mutant BRAF kinase with a BRAF inhibitor. In one embodiment, the regulating, modulating or inhibiting of a MAPK pathway signaling can be achieved through regulating the interaction of a BRAF kinase inhibitor as described herein with the Leucine 505 amino acid residue in the C-terminal end of an αC helix, such that there is no activation of pERK kinase.

    [0118] In some embodiments of the compounds for use in methods provided herein, the RAF inhibitor, e.g., a BRAF inhibitor is a molecule/compound containing a sulfamoylamino group having the formula:

    wherein R1, R2 and R3 are as defined in any embodiments of compounds of formula (Ia) or (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas of formula (Ia) or (Ib). In certain embodiments, R1 and R2 are each independently optionally substituted alkyl, aryl, heteroaryl, cycloalkyl or R1 and R2 taken together to form a optionally substituted 5- or 6-membered heterocycloalkyl ring having from 0-1 heteroatoms selected from O, N or S; R3 is H or C1-6 alkyl; and the wavy line indicates the point of attachment to the rest of the molecule. The BRAF inhibitor is a compound having formula (Ia) or (Ib) as defined in any embodiments of compounds of formula (Ia) or (Ib) and subgeneric formulas of formula (Ia) or (Ib) as described herein. In one embodiment, Y is -N(R1)(R2). In one embodiment, R3 is H. In other embodiments, R1 and R2 taken together with the nitrogen atom to which they are attached form an optionally substituted 5-membered heterocycloalkyl ring.

    [0119] In some embodiments of the compounds for use in methods provided herein, the BRAF inhibitor is a compound of formula (Ia) or (Ib) or a compound of any of the subgeneric formulas of formula (Ia) or (Ib), or a compound as described herein, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or a solvate or hydrate thereof, or a composition comprising a compound of formula (Ia) or (Ib) or a compound of any of the subgeneric formulas of formula (Ia) or (Ib), for example, formulas (Ia-1), (Ib-1), (Ic), (Ic-1), (Ic-1a), (Id), (Id-1), (Id-1a), (Ie), (Ie-1), or (Ie-1a) or any of the compounds described herein, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or a solvate or hydrate thereof.

    [0120] In some embodiments of the compounds for use in methods provided herein, the inhibition involves regulating the interaction of the -N(R1)(R2) group of the BRAF kinase inhibitor with the Leucine 505 amino acid residue in the C-terminal end of an αC helix, wherein the wavy line indicates the point of attachment to the rest of the molecule. In one embodiment, the BRAF inhibitor is in direct contact with the Leucine 505 amino acid residue in the C-terminal end of an αC helix.

    [0121] The cell can have RAS mutation or upstream receptor tyrosine kinase activation. In the compounds for use in methods provided herein, the inhibition of the mutant BRAF kinase does not activate the MAPK pathway in cells having RAS mutation or upstream receptor tyrosine kinase activation.

    [0122] In compounds for use in methods described herein, the BRAF inhibitor is a compound of formula (Ia) or (Ib) listed in Table A.

    Organic Synthetic Techniques



    [0136] A wide array of organic synthetic techniques exist in the art to facilitate the construction of potential modulators. Many of these organic synthetic methods are described in detail in standard reference sources utilized by those skilled in the art. One example of such a reference is March, 1994, Advanced Organic Chemistry; Reactions, Mechanisms and Structure, New York, McGraw Hill. Thus, the techniques useful to synthesize a potential modulator of kinase function are readily available to those skilled in the art of organic chemical synthesis.

    Alternative Compound Forms or Derivatives



    [0137] Compounds contemplated herein are described with reference to both generic formulae and specific compounds. In addition, compounds disclosed herein may exist in a number of different forms or derivatives, all within the scope of the disclosure. Alternative forms or derivatives, include, for example, (a) prodrugs, and active metabolites (b) tautomers, isomers (including stereoisomers and regioisomers), and racemic mixtures (c) pharmaceutically acceptable salts and (d) solid forms, including different crystal forms, polymorphic or amorphous solids, including hydrates and solvates thereof, and other forms.

    (a) Prodrugs and Metabolites



    [0138] In addition to the present formulae and compounds described herein, the disclosure also refers to prodrugs (generally pharmaceutically acceptable prodrugs), active metabolic derivatives (active metabolites), and their pharmaceutically acceptable salts.

    [0139] Prodrugs are compounds or pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof which, when metabolized under physiological conditions or when converted by solvolysis, yield the desired active compound. Prodrugs include, without limitation, esters, amides, carbamates, carbonates, ureides, solvates, or hydrates of the active compound. Typically, the prodrug is inactive, or less active than the active compound, but may provide one or more advantageous handling, administration, and/or metabolic properties. For example, some prodrugs are esters of the active compound; during metabolysis, the ester group is cleaved to yield the active drug. Esters include, for example, esters of a carboxylic acid group, or S-acyl or O-acyl derivatives of thiol, alcohol, or phenol groups. In this context, a common example is an alkyl ester of a carboxylic acid. Prodrugs may also include variants wherein an -NH group of the compound has undergone acylation, such as the 1-position of the 1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine ring, or the nitrogen of the sulfonamide group of compounds as described herein, where cleavage of the acyl group provides the free -NH group of the active drug. Some prodrugs are activated enzymatically to yield the active compound, or a compound may undergo further chemical reaction to yield the active compound. Prodrugs may proceed from prodrug form to active form in a single step or may have one or more intermediate forms which may themselves have activity or may be inactive.

    [0140] As described in The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry, Ch. 31-32 (Ed. Wermuth, Academic Press, San Diego, CA, 2001), prodrugs can be conceptually divided into two non-exclusive categories, bioprecursor prodrugs and carrier prodrugs. Generally, bioprecursor prodrugs are compounds that are inactive or have low activity compared to the corresponding active drug compound, that contain one or more protective groups and are converted to an active form by metabolism or solvolysis. Both the active drug form and any released metabolic products should have acceptably low toxicity. Typically, the formation of active drug compound involves a metabolic process or reaction that is one of the following types:

    [0141] Oxidative reactions: Oxidative reactions are exemplified without limitation by reactions such as oxidation of alcohol, carbonyl, and acid functionalities, hydroxylation of aliphatic carbons, hydroxylation of alicyclic carbon atoms, oxidation of aromatic carbon atoms, oxidation of carbon-carbon double bonds, oxidation of nitrogen-containing functional groups, oxidation of silicon, phosphorus, arsenic, and sulfur, oxidative N-dealkylation, oxidative O- and S-dealkylation, oxidative deamination, as well as other oxidative reactions.

    [0142] Reductive reactions: Reductive reactions are exemplified without limitation by reactions such as reduction of carbonyl functionalities, reduction of alcohol functionalities and carbon-carbon double bonds, reduction of nitrogen-containing functional groups, and other reduction reactions.

    [0143] Reactions without change in the oxidation state: Reactions without change in the state of oxidation are exemplified without limitation by reactions such as hydrolysis of esters and ethers, hydrolytic cleavage of carbon-nitrogen single bonds, hydrolytic cleavage of non-aromatic heterocycles, hydration and dehydration at multiple bonds, new atomic linkages resulting from dehydration reactions, hydrolytic dehalogenation, removal of hydrogen halide molecule, and other such reactions.

    [0144] Carrier prodrugs are drug compounds that contain a transport moiety, e.g., that improves uptake and/or localized delivery to a site(s) of action. Desirably for such a carrier prodrug, the linkage between the drug moiety and the transport moiety is a covalent bond, the prodrug is inactive or less active than the drug compound, the prodrug and any release transport moiety are acceptably non-toxic. For prodrugs where the transport moiety is intended to enhance uptake, typically the release of the transport moiety should be rapid. In other cases, it is desirable to utilize a moiety that provides slow release, e.g., certain polymers or other moieties, such as cyclodextrins. (See, e.g., Cheng et al., U.S. Patent Publ. No. 20040077595.) Such carrier prodrugs are often advantageous for orally administered drugs. In some instances, the transport moiety provides targeted delivery of the drug, for example the drug may be conjugated to an antibody or antibody fragment. Carrier prodrugs can, for example, be used to improve one or more of the following properties: increased lipophilicity, increased duration of pharmacological effects, increased site-specificity, decreased toxicity and adverse reactions, and/or improvement in drug formulation (e.g., stability, water solubility, suppression of an undesirable organoleptic or physiochemical property). For example, lipophilicity can be increased by esterification of hydroxyl groups with lipophilic carboxylic acids, or of carboxylic acid groups with alcohols, e.g., aliphatic alcohols. Wermuth, supra.

    [0145] Metabolites, e.g., active metabolites, overlap with prodrugs as described above, e.g., bioprecursor prodrugs. Thus, such metabolites are pharmacologically active compounds or compounds that further metabolize to pharmacologically active compounds that are derivatives resulting from metabolic processes in the body of a subject. Of these, active metabolites are such pharmacologically active derivative compounds. For prodrugs, the prodrug compound is generally inactive or of lower activity than the metabolic product. For active metabolites, the parent compound may be either an active compound or may be an inactive prodrug. For example, in some compounds, one or more alkoxy groups can be metabolized to hydroxyl groups while retaining pharmacologic activity and/or carboxyl groups can be esterified, e.g., glucuronidation. In some cases, there can be more than one metabolite, where an intermediate metabolite(s) is further metabolized to provide an active metabolite. For example, in some cases a derivative compound resulting from metabolic glucuronidation may be inactive or of low activity, and can be further metabolized to provide an active metabolite.

    [0146] Metabolites of a compound may be identified using routine techniques known in the art, and their activities determined using tests such as those described herein. See, e.g., Bertolini et al., 1997, J. Med. Chem., 40:2011-2016; Shan et al., 1997, J Pharm Sci 86(7):756-757; Bagshawe, 1995, Drug Dev. Res., 34:220-230; Wermuth, supra.

    (b) Tautomers, Stereoisomers, and Regioisomers



    [0147] It is understood that some compounds may exhibit tautomerism. In such cases, the formulae provided herein expressly depict only one of the possible tautomeric forms. It is therefore to be understood that the formulae provided herein are intended to represent any tautomeric form of the depicted compounds and are not to be limited merely to the specific tautomeric form depicted by the drawings of the formulae.

    [0148] Likewise, some of the compounds disclosed herein may exist as stereoisomers, i.e. having the same atomic connectivity of covalently bonded atoms yet differing in the spatial orientation of the atoms. For example, compounds may be optical stereoisomers, which contain one or more chiral centers, and therefore, may exist in two or more stereoisomeric forms (e.g. enantiomers or diastereomers). Thus, such compounds may be present as single stereoisomers (i.e., essentially free of other stereoisomers), racemates, and/or mixtures of enantiomers and/or diastereomers. As another example, stereoisomers include geometric isomers, such as cis- or trans- orientation of substituents on adjacent carbons of a double bond. All such single stereoisomers, racemates and mixtures thereof are intended to be within the scope of the disclosure. Unless specified to the contrary, all such stereoisomeric forms are included within the formulae provided herein.

    [0149] In some embodiments, a chiral compound disclosed herein is in a form that contains at least 80% of a single isomer (60% enantiomeric excess ("e.e.") or diastereomeric excess ("d.e.")), or at least 85% (70% e.e. or d.e.), 90% (80% e.e. or d.e.), 95% (90% e.e. or d.e.), 97.5% (95% e.e. or d.e.), or 99% (98% e.e. or d.e.). As generally understood by those skilled in the art, an optically pure compound having one chiral center is one that consists essentially of one of the two possible enantiomers (i.e., is enantiomerically pure), and an optically pure compound having more than one chiral center is one that is both diastereomerically pure and enantiomerically pure. In some embodiments, the compound is present in optically pure form, such optically pure form being prepared and/or isolated by methods known in the art (e.g. by recrystallization techniques, chiral synthetic techniques (including synthesis from optically pure starting materials), and chromatographic separation using a chiral column.

    (c) Pharmaceutically acceptable salts



    [0150] Unless specified to the contrary, specification of a compound herein includes pharmaceutically acceptable salts of such compound. Thus, compounds described herein and recited in any of the claims can be in the form of pharmaceutically acceptable salts, or can be formulated as pharmaceutically acceptable salts. Contemplated pharmaceutically acceptable salt forms include, without limitation, mono, bis, tris, tetrakis, and so on. Pharmaceutically acceptable salts are non-toxic in the amounts and concentrations at which they are administered. The preparation of such salts can facilitate the pharmacological use by altering the physical characteristics of a compound without preventing it from exerting its physiological effect. Useful alterations in physical properties include lowering the melting point to facilitate transmucosal administration and increasing the solubility to facilitate administering higher concentrations of the drug. A compound described herein may possess a sufficiently acidic, a sufficiently basic, or both functional groups, and accordingly can react with any of a number of inorganic or organic bases, and inorganic and organic acids, to form a pharmaceutically acceptable salt.

    [0151] Pharmaceutically acceptable salts include acid addition salts such as those containing chloride, bromide, iodide, hydrochloride, acetate, phenylacetate, acrylate, ascorbate, aspartate, benzoate, 2-phenoxybenzoate, 2-acetoxybenzoate, dinitrobenzoate, hydroxybenzoate, methoxybenzoate, methylbenzoate, bicarbonate, butyne-1,4 dioate, hexyne-1,6-dioate, caproate, caprylate, chlorobenzoate, cinnamate, citrate, decanoate, formate, fumarate, glycolate, gluconate, glucarate, glucuronate, glucose-6-phosphate, glutamate, heptanoate, hexanoate, isethionate, isobutyrate, gamma-hydroxybutyrate, phenylbutyrate, lactate, malate, maleate, hydroxymaleate, methylmaleate, malonate, mandelate, nicotinate, nitrate, isonicotinate, octanoate, oleate, oxalate, pamoate, phosphate, monohydrogenphosphate, dihydrogenphosphate, orthophosphate, metaphosphate, pyrophosphate, 2-phosphoglycerate, 3-phosphoglycerate, phthalate, propionate, phenylpropionate, propiolate, pyruvate, quinate, salicylate, 4-aminosalicylate, sebacate, stearate, suberate, succinate, sulfate, pyrosulfate, bisulfate, sulfite, bisulfite, sulfamate, sulfonate, benzenesulfonate (i.e. besylate), ethanesulfonate (i.e. esylate), ethane-1,2-disulfonate, 2-hydroxyethanesulfonate (i.e. isethionate), methanesulfonate (i.e. mesylate), naphthalene-1-sulfonate, naphthalene-2-sulfonate (i.e. napsylate), propanesulfonate, p-toluenesulfonate (i.e. tosylate), xylenesulfonates, cyclohexylsulfamate, tartrate, and trifluoroacetate. These pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salts can be prepared using the appropriate corresponding acid.

    [0152] When acidic functional groups, such as carboxylic acid or phenol are present, pharmaceutically acceptable salts also include basic addition salts such as those containing benzathine, chloroprocaine, choline, ethanolamine, diethanolamine, triethanolamine, t-butylamine, dicyclohexylamine, ethylenediamine, N,N'-dibenzylethylenediamine, meglumine, hydroxyethylpyrrolidine, piperidine, morpholine, piperazine, procaine, aluminum, calcium, copper, iron, lithium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, zinc, ammonium, and mono-, di-, or tri-alkylamines (e.g. diethylamine), or salts derived from amino acids such as L-histidine, L-glycine, L-lysine, and L-arginine. For example, see Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences, 19th ed., Mack Publishing Co., Easton, PA, Vol. 2, p. 1457, 1995. These pharmaceutically acceptable base addition salts can be prepared using the appropriate corresponding base.

    [0153] Pharmaceutically acceptable salts can be prepared by standard techniques. For example, the free-base form of a compound can be dissolved in a suitable solvent, such as an aqueous or aqueous-alcohol solution containing the appropriate acid and then isolated by evaporating the solution. In another example, a salt can be prepared by reacting the free base and acid in an organic solvent. If the particular compound is an acid, the desired pharmaceutically acceptable salt may be prepared by any suitable method, for example, treatment of the free acid with an appropriate inorganic or organic base.

    (d) Other compound forms



    [0154] In the case of agents that are solids, it is understood by those skilled in the art that the compounds and salts may exist in different crystal or polymorphic forms, or may be formulated as co-crystals, or may be in an amorphous form, or may be any combination thereof (e.g. partially crystalline, partially amorphous, or mixtures of polymorphs) all of which are intended to be within the scope of the disclosure and specified formulae. Whereas salts are formed by acid/base addition, i.e. a free base or free acid of the compound of interest forms an acid/base reaction with a corresponding addition base or addition acid, respectively, resulting in an ionic charge interaction, co-crystals are a new chemical species that is formed between neutral compounds, resulting in the compound and an additional molecular species in the same crystal structure.

    [0155] In some instances, compounds described herein are complexed with an acid or a base, including base addition salts such as ammonium, diethylamine, ethanolamine, ethylenediamine, diethanolamine, t-butylamine, piperazine, meglumine; acid addition salts, such as acetate, acetylsalicylate, besylate, camsylate, citrate, formate, fumarate, glutarate, hydrochlorate, maleate, mesylate, nitrate, oxalate, phosphate, succinate, sulfate, tartrate, thiocyanate and tosylate; and amino acids such as alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, proline, serine, threonine, tryptophan, tyrosine or valine. In combining the compound disclosed herein with the acid or base, an amorphous complex is preferably formed rather than a crystalline material such as a typical salt or co-crystal. In some instances, the amorphous form of the complex is facilitated by additional processing, such as by spray-drying, mechanochemical methods such as roller compaction, or microwave irradiation of the parent compound mixed with the acid or base. Such methods may also include addition of ionic and/or non-ionic polymer systems, including, but not limited to, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose acetate succinate (HPMCAS) and methacrylic acid copolymer (e.g. Eudragit® L100-55), that further stabilize the amorphous nature of the complex. Such amorphous complexes provide several advantages. For example, lowering of the melting temperature relative to the free base facilitates additional processing, such as hot melt extrusion, to further improve the biopharmaceutical properties of the compound. Also, the amorphous complex is readily friable, which provides improved compression for loading of the solid into capsule or tablet form.

    [0156] Additionally, the formulae are intended to cover hydrated or solvated as well as unhydrated or unsolvated forms of the identified structures. For example, the indicated compounds include both hydrated and non-hydrated forms. Other examples of solvates include the structures in combination with a suitable solvent, such as isopropanol, ethanol, methanol, dimethyl sulfoxide, ethyl acetate, acetic acid, or ethanolamine.

    V. Kinase targets and indications



    [0170] Protein kinases play key roles in propagating biochemical signals in diverse biological pathways. More than 500 kinases have been described, and specific kinases have been implicated in a wide range of diseases or conditions (i.e., indications), including for example without limitation, cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disease, neurological disease, and other diseases. As such, kinases represent important control points for small molecule therapeutic intervention. Specific target protein kinases contemplated by the disclosure are described in the art, including, without limitation, protein kinases as described in US Patent Application Serial number 11/473,347 (see also, PCT publication WO2007002433), which relates to such kinase targets, as well as the following:

    A-Raf: Target kinase A-Raf (i.e., v-raf murine sarcoma 3611 viral oncogene homolog 1) is a 67.6 kDa serine/threonine kinase encoded by chromosome Xp11.4-p11.2 (symbol: ARAF). The mature protein comprises RBD (i.e., Ras binding domain) and phorbol-ester/DAG-type zinc finger domain and is involved in the transduction of mitogenic signals from the cell membrane to the nucleus. A-Raf inhibitors may be useful in treating neurologic diseases such as multi-infarct dementia, head injury, spinal cord injury, Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease; neoplastic diseases including, but not limited to, melanoma, glioma, sarcoma, carcinoma (e.g. colorectal, lung, breast, pancreatic, thyroid, renal, ovarian), lymphoma (e.g. histiocytic lymphoma), neurofibromatosis, myelodysplastic syndrome, leukemia, tumor angiogenesis; pain of neuropathic or inflammatory origin, including acute pain, chronic pain, cancer-related pain and migraine; and diseases associated with muscle regeneration or degeneration, including, but not limited to, vascular restenosis, sarcopenia, muscular dystrophies (including, but not limited to, Duchenne, Becker, Emery-Dreifuss, Limb-Girdle, Facioscapulohumeral, Myotonic, Oculopharyngeal, Distal and Congenital Muscular Dystrophies), motor neuron diseases (including, but not limited to, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, infantile progressive spinal muscular atrophy, intermediate spinal muscular atrophy, juvenile spinal muscular atrophy, spinal bulbar muscular atrophy, and adult spinal muscular atrophy), inflammatory myopathies (including, but not limited to, dermatomyositis, polymyositis, and inclusion body myositis), diseases of the neuromuscular junction (including, but not limited to, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, and congenital myasthenic syndrome), myopathies due to endocrine abnormalities (including, but not limited to, hyperthyroid myopathy and hypothyroid myopathy) diseases of peripheral nerve (including, but not limited to, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, Dejerine-Sottas disease, and Friedreich's ataxia), other myopathies (including, but not limited to, myotonia congenita, paramyotonia congenita, central core disease, nemaline myopathy, myotubular myopathy, and periodic paralysis), and metabolic diseases of muscle (including, but not limited to, phosphorylase deficiency, acid maltase deficiency, phosphofructokinase deficiency, debrancher enzyme deficiency, mitochondrial myopathy, carnitine deficiency, carnitine palmatyl transferase deficiency, phosphoglycerate kinase deficiency, phosphoglycerate mutase deficiency, lactate dehydrogenase deficiency, and myoadenylate deaminase deficiency).

    BRAF: Target kinase BRAF (i.e., v-raf murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B1) is a 84.4 kDa serine/threonine kinase encoded by chromosome 7q34 (symbol: BRAF). The mature protein comprises RBD (i.e., Ras binding domain), C1 (i.e., protein kinase C conserved region 1) and STK (i.e., serine/threonine kinase) domains.



    [0171] Target kinase BRAF is involved in the transduction of mitogenic signals from the cell membrane to the nucleus and may play a role in the postsynaptic responses of hippocampal neurons. As such, genes of the RAF family encode kinases that are regulated by Ras and mediate cellular responses to growth signals. Indeed, BRAF kinase is a key component of the RAS->Raf-> MEK->ERK/MAP kinase signaling pathway, which plays a fundamental role in the regulation of cell growth, division and proliferation, and, when constitutively activated, causes tumorigenesis. Among several isoforms of Raf kinase, the B-type, or BRAF, is the strongest activator of the downstream MAP kinase signaling.

    [0172] The BRAF gene is frequently mutated in a variety of human tumors, especially in malignant melanoma and colon carcinoma. The most common reported mutation was a missense thymine (T) to adenine (A) transversion at nucleotide 1796 (T1796A; amino acid change in the BRAF protein is Val<600> to Glu<600>) observed in 80% of malignant melanoma tumors. Functional analysis reveals that this transversion is the only detected mutation that causes constitutive activation of BRAF kinase activity, independent of RAS activation, by converting BRAF into a dominant transforming protein. Based on precedents, human tumors develop resistance to kinase inhibitors by mutating a specific amino acid in the catalytic domain as the "gatekeeper". (Balak, et. al., Clin Cancer Res. 2006, 12:6494-501). Mutation of Thr-529 in BRAF to Ile is thus anticipated as a mechanism of resistance to BRAF inhibitors, and this can be envisioned as a transition in codon 529 from ACC to ATC.

    [0173] Niihori et al., report that in 43 individuals with cardio-facio-cutaneous (CFC) syndrome, they identified two heterozygous KRAS mutations in three individuals and eight BRAF mutations in 16 individuals, suggesting that dysregulation of the RAS-RAF-ERK pathway is a common molecular basis for the three related disorders (Niihori et al., Nat Genet. 2006, 38(3):294-6).

    [0174] Many cancers associated with dysregulation of the RAS-RAF-ERK pathway, such as cancers having BRAF V600, such as V600E mutations or NRAS mutations, may be treated with Raf kinase inhibitors, such as the Pan Raf kinase inhibitors as described herein. The ability of these compounds to inhibit multiple Raf kinase targets, including c-Raf-1, BRAF, and BRAF V600, such as V600E, provides additional benefits for inhibiting activating mutations in this pathway, with such cancers less likely to develop resistance to such inhibitors as they are targeting several points in the pathway. Pan Raf kinase inhibitors as described herein may be useful in treating a variety of cancers, including, but not limited to, melanoma, glioma, glioblastoma mulitforme, pilocytic astrocytoma, carcinoma (e.g. gastrointestinal, liver, biliary tract, bile duct (cholangiocarcinoma), colorectal, lung, brain, bladder, gallbladder, breast, pancreatic, thyroid, kidney, ovarian, adrenocortical, prostate), gastrointestinal stromal tumors, medullary thyroid cancer, tumor angiogenesis, acute myeloid leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia, plasma cell leukemia, and multiple myeloma. See McDermott et al., PNAS, 2007, 104(50): 19936-19941; and Jaiswal et al., PLoS One, 2009, 4(5):e5717.

    [0175] c-Raf-1: Target kinase c-Raf-1 (i.e., v-raf murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog 1) is a 73.0 kDa STK encoded by chromosome 3p25 (symbol: RAF1). c-Raf-1 can be targeted to the mitochondria by BCL2 (i.e., oncogene B-cell leukemia 2) which is a regulator of apoptotic cell death. Active c-Raf-1 improves BCL2-mediated resistance to apoptosis, and c-Raf-1 phosphorylates BAD (i.e., BCL2-binding protein). c-Raf-1 is implicated in carcinomas, including colorectal, ovarian, lung and renal cell carcinoma. c-Raf-1 is also implicated as an important mediator of tumor angiogenesis (Hood, J.D. et al., 2002, Science 296, 2404). c-Raf-1 inhibitors may also be useful for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes (Crump, Curr Pharm Des 2002, 8(25):2243-8). c-Raf-1 activators may be useful as treatment for neuroendocrine tumors, such as medullary thyroid cancer, carcinoid, small cell lung cancer and pheochromocytoma (Kunnimalaiyaan et al., Anticancer Drugs 2006, 17(2): 139-42).

    [0176] Raf inhibitors (A-Raf and/or BRAF and/or c-Raf-1) may be useful in treating A-Raf-mediated, BRAF-mediated or c-Raf-1-mediated diseases or conditions selected from the group consisting of neurologic diseases, including, but not limited to, multi-infarct dementia, head injury, spinal cord injury, Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease, seizures and epilepsy; neoplastic diseases including, but not limited to, melanoma, glioma, glioblastoma multiforme, pilocytic astrocytoma, sarcoma, carcinoma (e.g. gastrointestinal, liver, biliary tract, bile duct (cholangiocarcinoma), colorectal, lung, brain, bladder, gallbladder, breast, pancreatic, thyroid, renal, ovarian, adrenocortical, prostate), lymphoma (e.g. histiocytic lymphoma) neurofibromatosis, acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, childhood, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, plasma cell leukemia, multiple myeloma, tumor angiogenesis, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, neuroendocrine tumors such as medullary thyroid cancer, carcinoid, small cell lung cancer, Kaposi's sarcoma, and pheochromocytoma; pain of neuropathic or inflammatory origin, including, but not limited to, acute pain, chronic pain, cancer-related pain, and migraine; cardiovascular diseases including, but not limited to, heart failure, ischemic stroke, cardiac hypertrophy, thrombosis (e.g. thrombotic microangiopathy syndromes), atherosclerosis, and reperfusion injury; inflammation and/or proliferation including, but not limited to, psoriasis, eczema, arthritis and autoimmune diseases and conditions, osteoarthritis, endometriosis, scarring, vascular restenosis, fibrotic disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD); immunodeficiency diseases, including, but not limited to, organ transplant rejection, graft versus host disease, and Kaposi's sarcoma associated with HIV; renal, cystic, or prostatic diseases, including, but not limited to, diabetic nephropathy, polycystic kidney disease, nephrosclerosis, glomerulonephritis, prostate hyperplasia, polycystic liver disease, tuberous sclerosis, Von Hippel Lindau disease, medullary cystic kidney disease, nephronophthisis, and cystic fibrosis; metabolic disorders, including, but not limited to, obesity; infection, including, but not limited to Helicobacter pylori, Hepatitis and Influenza viruses, fever, HIV, and sepsis; pulmonary diseases including, but not limited to, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS); genetic developmental diseases, including, but not limited to, Noonan's syndrome, Costello syndrome, (faciocutaneoskeletal syndrome), LEOPARD syndrome, cardio-faciocutaneous syndrome (CFC), and neural crest syndrome abnormalities causing cardiovascular, skeletal, intestinal, skin, hair and endocrine diseases; and diseases associated with muscle regeneration or degeneration, including, but not limited to, sarcopenia, muscular dystrophies (including, but not limited to, Duchenne, Becker, Emery-Dreifuss, Limb-Girdle, Facioscapulohumeral, Myotonic, Oculopharyngeal, Distal and Congenital Muscular Dystrophies), motor neuron diseases (including, but not limited to, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, infantile progressive spinal muscular atrophy, intermediate spinal muscular atrophy, juvenile spinal muscular atrophy, spinal bulbar muscular atrophy, and adult spinal muscular atrophy), inflammatory myopathies (including, but not limited to, dermatomyositis, polymyositis, and inclusion body myositis), diseases of the neuromuscular junction (including, but not limited to, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, and congenital myasthenic syndrome), myopathies due to endocrine abnormalities (including, but not limited to, hyperthyroid myopathy and hypothyroid myopathy) diseases of peripheral nerve (including, but not limited to, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, Dejerine-Sottas disease, and Friedreich's ataxia), other myopathies (including, but not limited to, myotonia congenita, paramyotonia congenita, central core disease, nemaline myopathy, myotubular myopathy, and periodic paralysis), and metabolic diseases of muscle (including, but not limited to, phosphorylase deficiency, acid maltase deficiency, phosphofructokinase deficiency, debrancher enzyme deficiency, mitochondrial myopathy, carnitine deficiency, carnitine palmatyl transferase deficiency, phosphoglycerate kinase deficiency, phosphoglycerate mutase deficiency, lactate dehydrogenase deficiency, and myoadenylate deaminase deficiency).

    [0177] Erk2: Target kinase Erk2 (i.e., extracellular signal-regulated kinase 2) is a 41.4 kDa dual function serine/threonine-tyrosine kinase encoded by chromosome 22q11.2 (symbol: MAPK1). Erk2 is a member of the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase family and is alternatively known as mitogen-activated protein kinase 1 (i.e., MAPK1). MAP kinases act as an integration point for multiple biochemical signals, and are involved in a wide variety of cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation, transcription regulation and development.

    [0178] The activation of Erk2 requires phosphorylation by upstream kinases. Upon activation, Erk2 translocates to the nucleus of the stimulated cells, where it phosphorylates nuclear targets, in addition to other targets including microtubule associated protein 2, myelin basic protein and ELK1. MacKenzie et al. state that the cAMP-specific phosphodiesterase family 4, subfamily D, isoform 3 (i.e., PDE4D3) is shown to have FQF (i.e., Phe-Gln-Phe) and KIM (i.e., Kinase Interaction Motif) docking sites for Erk2. These sites straddle the Ser(579) target residue for Erk2 phosphorylation of PDE4D3. Mutation of either or both of these docking sites prevent Erk2 from being co-immunoprecipitated with PDE4D3, ablate the ability of epidermal growth factor (EGF) to inhibit PDE4D3 through Erk2 action in transfected COS cells, and attenuate the ability of Erk2 to phosphorylate PDE4D3 in vitro. The two conserved NH(2)-terminal blocks of sequence, called upstream conserved regions 1 and 2 (i.e., UCR1 and UCR2), that characterize PDE4 long isoforms, are proposed to amplify the small, inherent inhibitory effect that Erk2 phosphorylation exerts on the PDE4D catalytic unit. In contrast to this, the lone intact UCR2 region found in PDE4D1 directs COOH-terminal Erk2 phosphorylation to cause the activation of this short isoform. From the analysis of PDE4D3 truncates, it is suggested that UCR1 and UCR2 provide a regulatory signal integration module that serves to orchestrate the functional consequences of Erk2 phosphorylation. The PDE4D gene thus encodes a series of isoenzymes that are either inhibited or activated by Erk2 phosphorylation and thereby offers the potential for ERK2 activation either to increase or decrease cAMP levels in cellular compartments (MacKenzie et al., J Biol Chem 2000, 275(22):16609-17).

    [0179] According to OMIM, Pleschka et al. (Nature Cell Biol., 2001, 3: 301-305) proposed that Erk2 regulates a cellular factor involved in the viral nuclear export protein function. They suggested that local application of MEK inhibitors may have only minor toxic effects on the host while inhibiting viral replication without giving rise to drug-resistant virus variants (OMIM MIM Number: 176948: 10/27/2005). Erk2 is involved in cytokine signaling and is a target for treating inflammation. Ramesh and Philipp state that lipoproteins are the key inflammatory molecule type of Borrelia burgdorferi, the spirochete that causes Lyme disease. They investigated whether specific inhibition of p38 and Erk1/2 MAPK would inhibit TNF-alpha and IL-6 production and thus astrocyte apoptosis, and proliferation, respectively. Lipoprotein-stimulated IL-6 production was unaffected by the MAPK inhibitors. In contrast, inhibition of both p38 and Erk1/2 significantly diminished TNF-alpha production, and totally abrogated production of this cytokine when both MAPK pathways were inhibited simultaneously. MAPK inhibition thus may be considered as a strategy to control inflammation and apoptosis in Lyme neuroborreliosis (Ramesh and Philipp, Neurosci Lett 2005, 384(1-2): 112-6). The role of Erk2 in signaling of cell differentiation, proliferation and survival suggests that inhibition of Erk2 may be therapeutic for several types of cancer. Husain et al. studied the effect of NSAIDs on MAPK activity and phosphorylation in gastric cancer. They conclude that NS-398 (a selective COX-2 inhibitor) and indomethacin (a non-selective NSAID) significantly inhibit proliferation and growth of human gastric cancer cell line MKN28. This effect is mediated by NSAID-induced inhibition of MAPK (ERK2) kinase signaling pathway, essential for cell proliferation (Husain et al., Life Sci 2001, 69(25-6):3045-54). Erk2 inhibitors may be useful in treating cancer, including gastric cancer, and in treating inflammation, including control of inflammation and apoptosis in Lyme neuroborreliosis.

    Kinase Activity Assays



    [0180] A number of different assays for kinase activity can be utilized for assaying for active modulators and/or determining specificity of a modulator for a particular kinase or group or kinases. In addition to the assay mentioned in the Examples below, one of ordinary skill in the art will know of other assays that can be utilized and can modify an assay for a particular application. For example, numerous papers concerning kinases describe assays that can be used.

    [0181] In certain embodiments, compounds as disclosed herein are active in an assay measuring BRAF protein kinase activity. In some embodiments, a compound as described herein has an IC50 of less than 1,000 nM, less than 500 nM, less than 100 nM, less than 50 nM, less than 20 nM, less than 10 nM, less than 5 nM, or less than 1 nM as determined in a generally accepted BRAF kinase activity assay. In some embodiments, a compound as described herein has an IC50 of less than 1,000 nM, less than 500 nM, less than 100 nM, less than 50 nM, less than 20 nM, less than 10 nM, less than 5 nM, or less than 1 nM as determined in a generally accepted mutant BRAF kinase (such as V600A, V600M, V600R, V600E, V600K or V600G) activity assay. In some embodiments the assay for measuring BRAF kinase activity and/or mutant BRAF kinase (such as V600A, V600M, V600R, V600E, V600K or V600G) activity includes an assay (e.g., biochemical or cell-bases assays) such as described in Example 13 or an assay well known in the art similar to those described in Example 13.

    [0182] In some embodiments, compounds as described herein have little or no activity in an assay measuring activation of the ERK pathway (i.e., in stimulating the phosphorylation of ERK 1/2). In some embodiments, compounds as described herein have an EC50 in an ERK activation assay that is greater than 1 µM; or greater than 2 µM; or greater than 3 µM; or greater than 4 µM; or greater than 5 µM; or greater than 8 µM; or greater than 10 µM. In certain embodiments, the assay for measuring activation of the ERK pathway includes an assay (e.g., biochemical or cell-bases assays) such as described in Example 13 or one or more assays well known in the art for measuring ERK activity similar to that described in Example 13.

    [0183] In some embodiments, compounds as described herein are active in an assay measuring BRAF protein kinase activity and/or an assay for measuring mutant BRAF (such as V600A, V600M, V600R, V600E, V600K or V600G) protein kinase activity, and have little or no activity in an assay measuring activation of the ERK pathway. In some embodiments a compound as described herein has an IC50 of less than 1,000 nM, less than 500 nM, less than 100 nM, less than 50 nM, less than 20 nM, less than 10 nM, less than 5 nM, or less than 1 nM as determined in a generally accepted BRAF kinase activity assay (including a mutant BRAF kinase activity assay) and an EC50 in an ERK activation assay that is greater than 1 µM; or greater than 2 µM; or greater than 3 µM; or greater than 4 µM; or greater than 5 µM; or greater than 8 µM; or greater than 10 µM. In some embodiments, a compound as described herein has an IC50 of less than 100 nM in a V600A, V600M, V600R, V600E, V600K or V600G mutant BRAF activity assay and an EC50 of greater than 10 in an ERK activation assay.

    [0184] Compounds as described herein or compounds of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof, or a composition comprising a compound as described herein or a compound of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof are effective in pERK inhibition and show essentially no pERK activation in RAS mutant cell line. The degree of separation between pERK inhibition and activation (dubbed "phospho-selectivity") is expressed as the ratio between the mean pERK activation EC50 of a compound in three RAS mutant cell lines (murine cuSCC cell line B9, human melanoma cell line IPC-298, and human colorectal carcinoma cell line HCT116) and its mean pERK inhibition IC50 in two BRAFV600E melanoma cell lines (A375 and COLO829). Figure 1a and Figure 5 demonstrate that a compound of formula (I), for example, compound A exhibits essentially no pERK activation in RAS mutant cell lines at up to the highest concentration tested.

    [0185] Compounds as described herein or compounds of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof, or a composition comprising a compound as described herein or a compound of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof do not increase pERk level in cells. For example, a compound of formula (I) such as compound A was evaluated in the human SCC cell line A431 and the human breast carcinoma cell line SKBR3 as these cells express active MAPK pathway by upstream signals feeding into RAS (though overexpression of EGFR and HER2, respectively). Unlike vemurafenib, compound A did not increase pERK levels in these cells (Figure 1b). As used herein, Paradox Breakers refer to a class of BRAF inhibitory compounds that selectively inhibit mutant BRAF protein kinase, but does not increase pERK levels in cells.

    [0186] Compounds as described herein or compounds of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof, or a composition comprising a compound as described herein or a compound of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof are effective in inhibit the in vitro growth of colorectal cancer cell line COLO205 that expresses BRAFV600E. For example, compound A inhibited the in vitro growth of two aforementioned melanoma cell lines (A375 and COLO829) and an additional human colorectal cancer cell line COLO205 that expresses BRAFV600E. The growth inhibition IC50's of compound A in the three cell lines are less than 1 µM. Consistent with this in vitro result, a compound of formula (I), for example, compound A and vemurafenib produced similar antitumor effects in a subcutaneous COLO205 xenograft model (Figure 1c) with matching doses (25mg/kg twice daily) and plasma exposures (steady state AUC=∼200,000 hrng/mL). In soft agar, both vemurafenib and its sister compound N-[3-(5-chloro-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine-3-carbonyl)-2,4-difluorophenyl]propane-1-sulfonamide (P-1000) stimulated B9 colony formation at concentrations similar to the growth inhibitory IC50's in A375, COLO829 and COLO205 cells whereas compounds of formula (I) do not (Figure Id). When tested in vivo, subcutaneous B9-tumor growth was accelerated by vemurafenib but not by compounds of formula (I), for example, compound A administered at the same dose (Figure 1e).

    [0187] Gene expression changes in B9 cells after exposure to vemurafenib and a compound of formula (I), e.g. compound A were compared. After sorting by differential expression scores, a total of 233 Affymetrix Mouse430_2 probes (representing 191 uniquely annotated mouse genes) showed more than 1.9 fold changes in response to overnight incubation of 1 µM vemurafenib (Figure 2a and Table 4). Several of the best-characterized markers of the MAPK pathway response genes, including Spry2, Fos, and Egr1, were upregulated by vemurafenib. The corresponding human genes are known to be suppressed by vemurafenib in BRAFV600E mutant human melanoma 20. Therefore, BRAF inhibitor-stimulated growth of B9 cells results from paradoxically increased MAPK signaling and associated transcriptional effects in cells with mutant HRAS. In contrast, compounds of formula (I), e.g. compound A had a minimal effect on B9 cells: affecting the expression of only a few genes (Fig. 2a and Table 4). Of the genes significantly induced by vemurafenib in B9 cells, three (AREG, HB-EGF and TGFα) code for EGFR ligands (amphiregulin, heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor, and transforming growth factor α, respectively) (Figure 2a). The upregulation of AREG, HB-EGF and TGFα proteins in B9 cells were confirmed by ELISA (Figure 2b and Figure 6). All three ligands have been shown to promote SCC (Oshima, G. et al. J Cancer Res Clin Oncol 138, 491-499 (2012)). The fourth EGFR ligand that was abundantly expressed in B9 cells, EREG/epiregulin, was also moderately induced, although the expression of EGFR and other ERBB family members remained unchanged (Figure 2a). not being bound by the theory, the overexpression of these autocrine growth factors may synergize with the transforming potential of activated HRAS. In the soft agar assay, exogenous AREG, HB-EGF and TGFα stimulated B9 cell colony formation (Figure 2c and Figure 6) whereas the EGFR inhibitor erlotinib antagonizes vemurafenib-induced B9 colony formation (Figure 2d). Not being bound by the theory, these data implicate EGFR signaling as a potential molecular link between BRAF inhibition and squamous cell carcinogenesis. In contrast to vemurafenib and consistent with its Paradox Breaker profile, expression of the EGFR ligands was largely unaffected by compounds as described herein, e.g. compounds of formula (I) (Figure 2a).

    [0188] Compounds as described herein or compounds of formula (Ia) or (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof, or a composition comprising a compound as described herein or a compound of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof effective in modulating RAF dimerization. Based on the crystal structures of compounds of formula (Ia) or (Ib) in complex with BRAFV600E, the terminal

    group occupying the small interior pocket forms closer contact with Leu505 in the pocket. Leu505 is part of the four residues that comprise the so called regulatory spine of kinases (Taylor, S. S. & Kornev, A. P. Trends Biochem Sci 36, 65-77 (2011). Situated close to the C-terminal end of αC helix, Leu505 is the only residue from the αC helix that makes a direct contact with the inhibitor. Figure 3a shows N-ethylmethyl moiety forms closer contact with Leu505 in the pocket. Paradoxical MAPK pathway activation relies on binding of the RAF inhibitor to one protomer of a RAF homodimer or heterodimer, leading to transactivation of the other protomer of the dimer in a RAS-dependent manner (Hatzivassiliou, G. et al. Nature 464, 431-435 (2010); Heidorn, S. J. et al. Cell 140, 209-221 (2010); and Poulikakos, P. I., Zhang, C., Bollag, G., Shokat, K. M. & Rosen, N. Nature 464, 427-430 (2010)). The C-terminus of αC helix plays a critical role in RAF dimer formation (Wan, P. T. et al. Cell 116, 855-867 (2004); Hatzivassiliou, G. et al. Nature 464, 431-435 (2010); Heidorn, S. J. et al. Cell 140, 209-221 (2010); and Tsai, J. et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105, 3041-3046 (2008)) and mutations that disrupt the dimer contacts involving the αC helix counteract RAF activation by inhibitors. Without being bound by the theory, the close interaction of a compound of formula (I), e.g. compound A with Leu505 of the αC helix suggests the possibility that compounds of formula (I) might modulate RAF dimerization through an allosteric mechanism. In the co-immunoprecipitation-Western blot dimerization assay using cell lysates, vemurafenib promoted endogenous BRAF-CRAF heterodimer formation in both B9 and IPC-298 cells whereas the dimer formation was indifferent to the presence of a compound of formula (I), e.g. compound A (Figure 3b). In two-component biochemical dimerization assays using recombinant RAF kinase domains, a compound of formula (I), e.g. compound A appeared to disrupt the formation of both BRAF-CRAF heterodimers and CRAF homodimers at mid to high concentration (Figure 7).

    [0189] Compounds as described herein or compounds of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof, or a composition comprising a compound as described herein or a compound of formula (Ia), (Ib) or any subgeneric formulas, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, a solvate, a tautomer or an isomer thereof are effective in combating dimerization-mediated resistance and overcome RAF inhibitor resistance in BRAF fusions characterizing pediatric astrocytomas. Figure 3c shows that compound A demonstrates minimal shift in pMEK IC50 and modest increase (5 fold) in growth inhibition IC50 in C3 cell line.

    [0190] Figure 4 demonstrates

    group in compounds of formula (Ia) or (Ib) is critical in reducing pERk activation. For example, compound P-0352 showed significantly reduced pERK activation in mutant RAS cell lines while preserving the potent inhibitory activity against BRAFV600E cells.

To a solution of 3-[2-tert-butyl-5-(2-chloropyrimidin-4-yl)thiazol-4-yl]-2-fluoro-aniline (1, 102 mg, 0.28 mmol) in dichloromethane (1 mL) was added pyridine (500 µL, 6.2 mmol) followed by N-ethyl-N-methyl-sulfamoyl chloride (265 mg, 1.68 mmol). The reaction was allowed to stir at 50 °C for 96 hours. The reaction was worked up by extraction with ethyl acetate and 0.1 M HCl(aq). The product was purified by flash chromatography (5-30% ethyl acetate in hexanes) which gave impure material. This material was again purified by flash chromatography (0.5-6% methanol in DCM). This provided 55 mg of 2-tert-butyl-5-(2-chloropyrimidin-4-yl)-4-[3-[[ethyl(methyl)sulfamoyl]amino]-2-fluoro-phenyl]thiazole (2) that was ∼90% pure and was used in the next step.MS (ESI) [M+H+]+ = 484.2. MS (ESI) [M-H+]- = 482.10.

    [0215] Step 2: Synthesis of 5-(2-aminopyrimidin-4-yl)-2-tert-butyl-4-[3-[[ethyl(methyl)sulfamoyl]amino]-2-fluoro-phenyl]thiazole (P-0352): 2-tert-butyl-5-(2-chloropyrimidin-4-yl)-4-[3-[[ethyl(methyl)sulfamoyl]amino]-2-fluoro-phenyl]thiazole (7, 51 mg, 0.11 mmol) was dissolved in 5 mL of 7 M ammonia in methanol in a sealed reaction vial. The reaction was placed in an oil bath at 80 °C and allowed to stir for 48 hours. All of the volatiles were removed by rotary evaporation.

    [0216] 



    Step 1. Synthesis of N-(6-acetamido-3-pyridyl)-2,6-difluoro-3-nitro-benzamide. To N-(5-Amino-pyridin-2-yl)-acetamide (1.53 g, 0.0101 mol) was added tetrahydrofuran (20 mL, 0.2 mol) followed by pyridine (0.900 mL, 0.0111 mol). To this suspension was added a solution of 2,6-difluoro-3-nitrobenzoyl chloride (2.24 g, 0.0101 mol) in tetrahydrofuran (10 mL, 0.1 mol). After stirring at room temperature overnight, the reaction was extracted with ethyl acetate and water (with added HCl). The organic layer was washed with brine, and the combined aqueous layers were extracted with ethyl acetate. The combined organic layers were dried over anhydrous magnesium sulfate, filtered and volatiles removed to give 1.91 g of crude product. This material was purified by silica gel column chromatography eluting with a gradient of 1 to 6% methanol in DCM to give 1.527 g of N-(6-acetamido-3-pyridyl)-2,6-difluoro-3-nitro-benzamide. MS(ESI)[M+H+]+= 336.9.

    Step 2. Synthesis of N-(6-acetamido-3-pyridyl)-3-amino-2,6-difluoro-benzamide. To N-(6-acetylamido-pyridin-3-yl)-2,6-difluoro-3-nitro-benzamide (0.500 g, 0.00149 mol) in ethanol (30 mL, 0.5 mol) and tetrahydrofuran (85 mL, 1.0 mol) was added ∼3 cc of Raney nickel slurry in water (2800). Then, the reaction was placed in a parr hydrogenator under hydrogen at 35 psi. After 2 hours, TLC indicated all starting material consumed, but two new spots observed. The reaction was allowed to continue. After a total of 6.5 hrs, TLC shows only one new spot. The reaction was filtered through celite and all volatiles removed to give crude material that was purified by silica gel column chromatography eluting with a gradient from 1 to 6% methanol in DCM to give 345 mg of N-(6-acetamido-3-pyridyl)-3-amino-2,6-difluoro-benzamide. MS(ESI)[M+H+]+= 306.9.

    Step 3. Synthesis of N-(6-acetamido-3-pyridyl)-2,6-difluoro-3-(pyrrolidin-1-ylsulfonylamino)benzamide.

This provided 443 mg of methyl N-[3-[4-(cyclopropylmethylamino)-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine-5-carbonyl]-2,4-difluoro-phenyl]carbamate. MS(ESI) [M+H+]+ = 402.3.

    Step 3. (3-amino-2,6-difluoro-phenyl)-[4-(cyclopropylmethylamino)-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-5-yl]methanone. To methyl N-[3-[4-(cyclopropylmethylamino)-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine-5-carbonyl]-2,4-difluoro-phenyl]carbamate (443 mg, 1.1 mmol) in tetrahydrofuran (4.5 ml), was added 5 M of sodium hydroxide in water (5.5 ml). The mixture was refluxed overnight. After the reaction mixture cooled to room temperature, it was neutralized with 6N HCl (aq). The resulting mixture was extracted with ethyl acetate (2 times). The combined organic layers were washed with brine, dried over sodium sulfate, filtered, and concentrated. The crude material was purified by silica gel flash chromatography eluting with methanol and dichloromethane. This provided 0.185 g of (3-amino-2,6-difluoro-phenyl)-[4-(cyclopropylmethylamino)-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-5-yl]methanone. MS(ESI) [M+H+]+ = 344.3.

    Step 4. 4-(cyclopropylmethylamino)-5-[3-(dimethylsulfamoylamino)-2,6-difluoro-benzoyl]-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine (P-2048). To (3-amino-2,6-difluoro-phenyl)-[4-(cyclopropylmethylamino)-7H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-5-yl]methanone (500 mg, 1.46 mmol) dissolved in pyridine (5 ml) was added N,N-dimethylsulfamoyl chloride (230 mg, 1.60 mmol). The reaction was stirred at room temperature for 3 days. The solvent was then removed under vacuum and the resulting material was purified by silica gel flash chromatography eluting a gradient of methanol in dichloromethane (0-2% methanol). MS ESI [M+H+]+ = 450.9.

    [0230] 

    Step 1. 1-(2-Fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)ethanone: Bis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II) dichloride (1.6 g, 2.28 mmol, 0.05 equiv) was added to a solution of 1-bromo-2-fluoro-3-nitrobenzene (10.0 g, 45.6 mmol, 1 equiv) and tri-n-butyl(1-ethoxyvinyl)stannane (15.4 mL, 45.6 mmol, 1 equiv) in dioxane (100 mL). The resulting turbid solution was heated at 90 °C for 4 hours during which time a dark brown solution formed. After TLC (30% MTBE/heptane) confirmed complete conversion, the reaction was cooled to room temperature. A saturated solution of KF (100 mL) and ethyl acetate (100 mL) were added and the biphasic mixture was stirred for 1 hour and filtered through Celite, washing with ethyl acetate. The organic layer was separated and dried over Na2SO4, filtered, and evaporated yielding the crude enol ether product as a brown oil. The crude product was dissolved in THF (50 mL) and 2 N HCl (50 mL) was added. The reaction was stirred at room temperature for 1.5 hours. The reaction was then saturated with NaCl and extracted with MTBE (2 x 150 mL). The organic layer was washed with brine (1 x 300 mL), dried over Na2SO4, filtered, and evaporated yielding crude material that was purified by silica gel column chromatography eluting with 0-40% ethyl acetate/ heptanes gradient. Fractions containing product were evaporated under reduced pressure yielding compound 1-(2-Fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)ethanone (7.1 g, 86% yield) as a yellow oil.

    Step 2. 2-(tert-Butyl)-4-(2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)thiazole: Copper (II) bromide (33.9 g, 152 mmol, 1.9 equiv) was suspended/dissolved in ethyl acetate (75 mL) with mechanical stirring. 1-(2-Fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)ethanone (14.4 g, 80.0 mmol, 1 equiv) was then added as a solution in CHCl3 (75 mL) and the reaction was heated to reflux for 24 hours. The reaction was cooled to room temperature and filtered through a short plug of silica gel washing with ethyl acetate. The filtrate was evaporated leaving crude 2-bromo-1-(2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl) ethanone which was dissolved in dimethylacetamide (150 mL) and 2,2-dimethylpropanethioamide (10.3 g, 88.0 mmol, 1 equiv). The reaction was stirred at room temperature for 1.5 hours. The reaction was heated to 60 °C for 2 hours, cooled to room temperature, and diluted with water (300 mL). The mixture was extracted with 15% MTBE in heptane (2 x 200 mL). The combined organic layers were washed with brine, dried over Na2SO4, filtered, and evaporated. The crude material was purified by silica gel column chromatography eluting with 0-15% ethyl acetate in heptane. Fractions containing product were evaporated yielding 2-(tert-Butyl)-4-(2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)thiazole (15.6 g, 70% yield over 2 steps) as an off-white solid.

    Step 3. 5-Bromo-2-(tert-butyl)-4-(2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)thiazole: Bromine (5.8 mL, 113 mmol, 1.8 equiv) was added to a solution of 2-(tert-Butyl)-4-(2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)thiazole (17.6 g, 63 mmol, 1 equiv) in chloroform (250 mL). The reaction was heated at reflux for 18 hours. Trifluoroacetic acid (1 mL) was added and reaction was heated at reflux for an additional 24 hours. The reaction was then cooled to room temperature, diluted with DCM (250 mL), and washed with saturated aqueous Na2S2O3 (1 X 500 mL) and saturated aqueous NaHCO3 (1 X 250 mL). The organic layer was dried over Na2SO4, filtered, and evaporated. The resulting material was purified by silica gel column chromatography eluting with 0-20% MTBE in heptane yielding additional 5-Bromo-2-(tert-butyl)-4-(2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)thiazole (1.2 g, 18.6 g total, 82% yield).

    Step 4. 3-(5-Bromo-2-(tert-butyl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluoroaniline: To a solution of 5-Bromo-2-(tert-butyl)-4-(2-fluoro-3-nitrophenyl)thiazole (18.6 g, 51.8 mmol, 1 equiv) in ethyl acetate/THF (150 mL/150 mL) was added SnCl2 dihydrate (40.9 g, 181 mmol, 3.5 equiv) and the reaction was heated to 60 °C for 2.5 hours. The reaction was cooled to room temperature and quenched by the slow addition of saturated aqueous NaHCO3 (500 mL). The biphasic mixture was filtered through Celite (very slow) washing with ethyl acetate. The filtrate was transferred to a separatory funnel and the phases separated. The organic phase was washed with brine (1 x 250 mL), dried over Na2SO4, filtered, and evaporated leaving a yellow oil. Heptane (90 mL) and MTBE (10 mL) were added to dissolve the oil. Crystallization of 3-(5-Bromo-2-(tert-butyl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluoroaniline provided (13.1 g) with an additional (2.0 g) isolated from the mother liquor by silica gel column chromatography (15.1 g total, 88% yield).

    Step 5. N-(3-(5-Bromo-2-(tert-butyl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidine-1-sulfonamide: A solution of 3-(5-Bromo-2-(tert-butyl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluoroaniline (13.5 g, 41 mmol, 1 equiv), pyridine (10 mL, 123 mmol, 3 equiv), and pyrrolidine-1-sulfonyl chloride (21 g, 123 mmol, 3 equiv) in acetonitrile (230 mL) was heated at 60 °C for 18 hours. The reaction was cooled to room temperature and the solvent evaporated. The residue was partitioned between ethyl acetate (300 mL) and 1 N HCl (300 mL). The phases were separated and the organic layer was washed with brine (1 x 300 mL), dried over Na2SO4, filtered, and evaporated yielding a brown oil. Heptane (90 mL) and MTBE (10 mL). Crystallization of N-(3-(5-Bromo-2-(tert-butyl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidine-1-sulfonamide provided (8.45 g, 46% yield) as an off-white solid.

    Step 6. N-(3-(2-(tert-butyl)-5-(2-methyl-1-(phenylsulfonyl)-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridin-4-yl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidine-1-sulfonamide: A mixture of 1-(benzenesulfonyl)-2-methyl-4-(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-1,3,2-dioxaborolan-2-yl)pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridine (1.1 g, 1.381 mmol, ∼50% purity), N-(3-(5-bromo-2-(tert-butyl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidine-1-sulfonamide (0.426 g, 0.921 mmol), potassium carbonate (0.382 g, 2.76 mmol) and [1,1'-bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene]dichloropalladium(II) (0.075 g, 0.092 mmol) in dioxane (12.27 mL) and water (6.14 mL) was heated at 90 °C for several hours. Upon cooling, the reaction mixture diluted with water and extracted with ethyl acetate. The organic layer was separated and concentrated under reduced pressure to give the crude product which was purified by silica gel column chromatography eluting with 0-100% ethyl acetate/heptane to give N-(3-(2-(tert-butyl)-5-(2-methyl-1-(phenylsulfonyl)-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridin-4-yl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidine-1-sulfonamide (0.60 g, 0.918 mmol, 100 % yield) as a yellow solid.

    Step 7. N-(3-(2-(tert-butyl)-5-(2-methyl-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridin-4-yl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidine-1-sulfonamide (P-2121): To a solution of N-(3-(2-(tert-butyl)-5-(2-methyl-1-(phenylsulfonyl)-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridin-4-yl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidine-1-sulfonamide (0.60 g, 0.918 mmol) in THF (9.18 mL) was added TBAF trihydrate (1.448 g, 4.59 mmol) and stirred 40 °C for 4 hours. Additional TBAF trihydrate (1.448 g, 4.59 mmol) as added and the mixture was stirred overnight. The mixture was diluted with water/brine and ethyl acetate and the layers were separated. The organic layer was concentrated under reduced pressure to give crude product which was purified by silica gel column chromatography eluting with 0-10% methanol/DCM and triturated with MTBE/heptane and filtered washing with heptane and dried in a vacuum oven to give N-(3-(2-(tert-butyl)-5-(2-methyl-1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridin-4-yl)thiazol-4-yl)-2-fluorophenyl)pyrrolidine-1-sulfonamide (0.18 g, 0.350 mmol, 38% yield) as an off-white solid.

For example, the biochemical activity IC50 values are determined with respect to inhibition of BRAF V600E kinase activity or p-Erk kinase activity, where inhibition of phosphorylation of a peptide substrate is measured as a function of compound concentration. Compounds to be tested are diluted in dimethyl sulfoxide to a concentration of 0.1 mM. These are serially diluted 15 µL into 30 µL of dimethyl sulfoxide seven times in 96 well plates for a total of 8 dilution points, and for each dilution point 1 µL is added to a well of an assay plate. Plates are prepared such that each well in a 384 well plate contains 1 µL of compound in 10 µL volume with 0.1 nanograms Raf enzyme (i.e. any of BRAF, c-Raf-1 or BRAF V600E, Upstate Biotechnology or prepared by methods known to one of skill in the art), 50 mM HEPES, pH 7.0, 50 mM NaCl, 2 mM MgCl2, 1 mM MnCl2, 0.01% Tween-20, 1 mM DTT, and 100 nM biotin-MEK1 as substrate. The reaction is started with addition of 10 µL of 200 µM ATP (i.e. final 100 µM ATP). After incubation of the kinase reaction for 45 minutes at room temperature, 5 µL/well of Stop Solution is added (25 mM Hepes pH 7.5, 100 mM EDTA, 0.01% BSA with donor beads (Streptavidin coated beads, Perkin Elmer), acceptor beads (Protein A coated, Perkin Elmer), and anti-phosphor MEK1/2 antibody (CellSignal), each at final concentration 10 µg/mL). The plates are incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and read on Envision reader (Perkin Elmer). Phosphorylation of Mek1 results in binding of the anti-phosphor-MEK1/2antibody and association of the donor and acceptor beads such that signal correlates with kinase activity. The signal versus compound concentration is used to determine the IC50.

    [0244] Compounds are assessed in a variety of cell based assays. For example human cell lines with BRAF V600E mutation (A375 melanoma, SKMEL3 melanoma, and COLO205 colon adenocarcinoma), as well as tumorigenic cell lines with wild-type BRAF (SW620 colon adenocarcinoma) or with Ras mutations (SKMEL2 melanoma and IPC298 melanoma). Similar assays may be used to assess additional tumorigenic cell lines with Ras mutations, including, but not limited to, M202, M207, M243, M244, M296, S117, HCT116, HCT15, DLD1, MiaPaCa, A549, NCI-H23, NCI-H460, HOP62, MDA-MB231, Hs-578T, HL60, MOLT-4, and CCRF-CEM.

    [0245] On day 1, cells are counted, then centrifuged in a conical tube for 5 minutes at 1000 rpm. The supernatant is removed and cells are re-suspended as follows:

    SW620 (ATCC catalog # CCL-27): resuspended in Leibovitz's L-15 medium, 2 mM L-glutamine, 10% fetal bovine serum to 6 X 104 cells/mL.

    A375 (ATCC catalog # CRL-1619): resuspend in Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium, 4 mM L-glutamine, 4.5 g/L D-glucose, 10% fetal bovine serum to 6 X 104 cells/mL.

    COLO205 (ATCC catalog # CCL-222): resuspend in RPMI 1640, 2 mM L-glutamine, 1.5 g/L sodium bicarbonate, 4.5 g/L D-glucose, 10 mM HEPES, 1.0 mM sodium pyruvate, 10% fetal bovine serum to 6 X 104 cells/mL.

    SKMEL2 (ATCC catalog # HTB-68): resuspend in Minimum Eagle essential medium, 2 mM L-glutamine, 1.5 g/L sodium bicarbonate, 0.1 mM non-essential amino acids, 1.0 mM sodium pyruvate, 10% fetal bovine serum to 6 X 104 cells/mL.

    SKMEL3 (ATCC catalog # HTB-69): resuspend in McCoy's 5A medium, 1.5 mM L-glutamine, 15% fetal bovine serum to 6 X 104 cells/mL.

    IPC298 (DSMZ catalog # ACC 251): resuspend in RPMI 1640, 2 mM L-glutamine, 10% fetal bovine serum to 6 X 104 cells/mL.



    [0246] The cells are plated, 50 µL in each well of a 96-well dish (Corning 3610) and incubated at 37 °C in 5% CO2 overnight, cells plated to a final concentration of cells as follows:

    SW620: 5,000 cells per well.

    A375: 2,000 cells per well.

    COLO205: 2,000 cells per well.

    SKMEL2: 2,000 cells per well.

    SKMEL3: 3,000 cells per well.

    IPC298: 2,000 cells per well.



    [0247] On day 2, compound at a maximum concentration of 5 mM is serially diluted 1:3 (e.g. 10 µL with 30 µL dimethyl sulfoxide) for a total of 8 point titration with DMSO as a control. A 1 µL aliquot of each dilution point and control is added to 249 µL growth media and 50 µL is added to a well containing cells, providing 10 µM compound at the maximum concentration point. The cells are incubated for 3 days at 37 °C in 5% CO2.

    [0248] On day 5, ATPlite 1 step Luminescence Assay System (Perkin Elmer # 6016739) is brought to room temperature along with the cell cultures. ATPlite is added 25 µL to each well, shake for 2 minutes, and the cells are incubated at room temperature for 10 minutes, then luminescence is read on Safire reader. The measured luminescence correlates directly with cell number, such that the reading as a function of compound concentration is used to determine the IC50 value.

    [0249] B9 is a squamous cell carcinoma cell line expressing activated HRAS that was isolated from a DMBA/TPA-induced mouse model of skin carcinogenesis (Stoler, et al. The Journal of Cell Biology, 1993, 122(5), 1103-17). IPC-298 is a human melanoma cell line that expresses activated NRAS (Aubert, et al. International Journal of Cancer, 1993, 54(5), 784-92). To determine whether compounds induce phosphorylated ERK and MEK, cells are plated in a 96-well dish and treated with an 8-point titration of compound for one hour at 37 °C. The media is then removed and the cells are incubated with lysis buffer containing protease and phosphatase inhibitors. Phosphorylated ERK and MEK in the resulting lysates is detected using AlphaScreen™ technology. To detect phosphorylated ERK, cell lysates are incubated with streptavidin-coated donor beads, anti-mouse IgG acceptor beads, a biotinylated anti-ERK1/2 rabbit antibody, and a mouse antibody that recognizes ERK1/2 only when it is phosphorylated on Thr202 and Tyr204. The biotinylated ERK1/2 antibody will bind to both the streptavidin-coated donor beads and to ERK1/2 (regardless of its phosphorylation state), and the phospho-ERK1/2 antibody will bind to the acceptor beads and to ERK1/2 that is phosphorylated at Thr202/Tyr204. Excitation of the beads with laser light at 680 nm produces singlet oxygen, which is rapidly quenched unless the beads are in close proximity. When ERK is phosphorylated, both antibodies can bind the same protein, bringing the donor and acceptor beads into close proximity, producing a signal that can be measured at 580 nm. MEK phosphorylation is detected using a similar approach, only with antibodies directed against total MEK1/2 and MEK1/2 that is phosphorylated at Ser217 and Ser221.

    Biochemical assays and kinome selectivity profiling.



    [0252] As described herein, compound A is a compound of formula (I). For example, compound A is a compound set forth in Tables 1 and 2.

    [0253] The in vitro RAF kinase activities were determined by measuring phosphorylation of a biotinylated substrate peptide as described previously (Tsai, J. et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105, 3041-3046 (2008)). Compounds of formula (I), e.g., compound A, was also tested against a panel of 287 kinases at concentrations of 1 µM in duplicate. Kinases inhibited by over 50% were followed up by IC50 determination. The 287 kinases represent all major branches of the kinome phylogenetic tree. The inhibition screen of 287 kinases was carried out under contract as complementary panels at Invitrogen (Life Technologies, WI, USA) SelectScreen™ profiling service, DiscoverX (CA, USA) KINOMEScan™ service, and Reaction Biology Corporation (PA, USA) Kinase HotSpot SM service.

    Cell culture, pERK assay, growth inhibition assay, and phototoxicity assay



    [0254] The B9 cell line was a gift from Allan Balmain (University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA). The IPC-298 cell line was purchased from DSMZ (Braunschweig, Germany). The SK-MEL-239 and KS-MEL-239 cell lines were kindly provided by Neal Rosen (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA). All other cell lines were purchased from ATCC.

    [0255] Phospho-ERK AlphaScreen® assay. To determine the effects of compound treatment upon phosphorylation of ERK1/2, cells were plated in a 96-well dish and treated with an 8-point titration of compound for one hour at 37°C before lysis. To detect pERK, cell lysates were incubated with streptavidin-coated AlphaScreen® donor beads, anti-mouse IgG AlphaScreen® acceptor beads, a biotinylated anti-ERK1/2 rabbit antibody, and a mouse antibody that recognizes ERK1/2 only when it is phosphorylated on Thr202 and Tyr204. The biotinylated ERK1/2 antibody binds to both the streptavidin-coated AlphaScreen® donor beads and to ERK1/2 (regardless of its phosphorylation state), and the phospho-ERK1/2 antibody binds to the acceptor beads and to ERK1/2 that is phosphorylated at Thr202/Tyr204. An increase in ERK1/2 phosphorylation at Thr202/Tyr204 brings the donor and acceptor AlphaScreen® beads into close proximity, generating a signal that can be quantified on an EnVision reader (Perkin Elmer).

    [0256] Phospho-ERK immunoblot analysis. Western blots were performed by standard techniques and analyzed on an Odyssey Infrared Scanner (Li-COR Biosciences). The following antibodies were used: pERK1/2 (T202/Y204) and ERK1/2 (Cell Signaling).

    [0257] Growth inhibition assay. Cells were plated into a 96-well plate at a density of 3000 cells per well and allowed to adhere overnight. Compounds were dissolved in DMSO, diluted 3-fold to create an 8-point titration, and added to cells. After a 72h incubation, cell viability was examined using CellTiter-Glo® (Promega). Data presented represent the average of at least three independent experiments.

    [0258] Anchorage-independent growth assay. 2.5x104 B9 cells were plated in each well of a six-well plate with a bottom layer of 1% and a top layer of 0.4% low melting agar (Sigma A4018, Dallas, TX) containing RPMI1640 medium with 10% FBS. For RAF inhibitor study, B9 cells grown in soft agar were treated with vemurafenib, compound P-1000 or compound A at indicated concentration or dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) for 3 weeks. For EGFR ligand study, B9 cells grown in soft agar were treated with AREG (R&D systems 989-AR, Minneapolis, MN), TGFα (R&D systems 239-A, Minneapolis, MN) or HB-EGF (R&D systems 259-HE, Minneapolis, MN) at the indicated concentrations for 3 weeks. For vemurafenib and erlotinib combination study, B9 cells grown in soft agar were treated with vemurafenib, erlotinib or a combination of the two compounds at the indicated concentrations or DMSO for 3 weeks. Anchorage-independent colonies ≥100µm were scored using AxioVision Rel 4.8 software (CarlZeiss, Wake Forest, NC).

    [0259] B9 cells grown in soft agar were treated with AREG, TGFα or HBEGF at the indicated concentrations for 3 weeks. Anchorage-independent colonies ≥100µm were scored. B9 cells grown in soft agar were treated with vemurafenib or a combination of vemurafenib and erlotinib at the indicated concentrations for 3 weeks. Anchorage-independent colonies ≥100µm were scored.

    [0260] Phototoxicity assay. The NIH 3T3 phototoxicity assay was developed based on Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development test guidelines No. 432 (OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals/Test No. 432: In Vitro 3T3 NRU Phototoxicity Test, 2004) with minor modifications. Two collagen-coated 96-well plates with 104 NIH 3T3 cells per well in DMEM with 10% calf serum were preincubated with eight different concentrations of the test chemical for 1 hour. Thereafter one of the two plates (+UV) is exposed to the non-cytotoxic UVA irradiation dose (1.7 mW/cm2 = 5 J/cm2) through the lid for 50 minutes whereas the other plate is kept in the dark. Cytotoxicity in this test is expressed as a concentration-dependent reduction of the uptake of the Vital dye Neutral Red (NR) when measured 24 hours after treatment with the test chemical and irradiation. To predict the phototoxic potential, the concentration responses obtained in the presence and in the absence of irradiation are compared at the IC50 level, i.e., the concentration reducing cell viability to 50 % compared to the untreated controls.

    Microarray gene expression analysis



    [0261] B9 cells were plated in DMSO control or 1 µM of vemurafenib or compound A and incubated for 16 hours. Cells were harvested, total RNA was isolated (RNeasy Mini Kit, Qiagen), and gene expression was measured using Affymetrix Mouse420_2 chips (Santa Clara, CA) following the manufacturer's instructions. Vemurafenib response genes were identified by requiring the ratio between the treated and vehicle control samples be more than 1.9 (upregulated) or less than 0.54 (downregulated).

    Western blot (EGFR ligand assay)



    [0262] 2x104 B9 cells were plated in each well of a 96-well plate and treated with DMSO control or compounds at indicated concentration for 48 hours. Cell supernatants were collected and cells were lysed using 1x cell lysis buffer (CST 9803, Beverly, MA). The amount of AREG, TGFα and HB-EGF in cell supernatants or cell lysates were determined with the use of ELISA Development kits (R&D systems DY989, DY239 and 259-HE-050, Minneapolis, MN) according to the manufacturer's instructions.

    RAF dimerization assays



    [0263] Immunoprecipitation-Western blot assay. Cells were plated on 15-cm dishes and allowed to adhere overnight at 37°C. Cells were treated with compound or DMSO for one hour at 37°C prior to lysis in RIPA buffer containing protease and phosphatase inhibitors. The lysates were clarified by centrifugation and equal amounts were immunoprecipitated with antibodies for either BRAF (Santa Cruz) or CRAF (BD Biosciences) overnight at 4 °C. The immunoprecipitated complexes were separated by SDS-PAGE and transferred to PVDF. Western blots were performed with BRAF and CRAF antibodies, as noted, and were visualized on a LI-COR Odyssey imaging system.

    [0264] AlphaScreen assay using recombinant kinase domains. Recombinant human Braf protein with N-terminal GST-Tag and C-terminal His-tag (GST-BRAF-His, residues 432-727), recombinant human RAF1 protein with N-terminal His-tag (His-RAF1, residues 325-648) or recombinant human RAF1 protein with N-terminal GST tag and C-terminal His-tag (GST-RAF1-His, residues 325-648) were expressed in Sf9 insect cells via a baculovirus expression system as previously described (Ref). His-RAF1 protein was in vitro biotinylated. BRAF-RAF1 and RAF1-RAF1 interaction was measured quantitatively using Alpha technology.

    Tumor xenograft studies



    [0265] All animal studies were conducted in accordance with the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and the USDA Animal Welfare Act. The same formulation was used for both COLO205 and B9 xenograft studies. The powder of test compound was dissolved in pure N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP). Diluent consists of PEG400: TPGS:Poloxamer 407:Water (40:5:5:50). Before gavage administration, fresh stock of NMP compound solution (or NMP for vehicle) was thoroughly mixed with the diluents to make a uniform suspension. Dosing volume is 5µl/g. On the last day of the efficacy study, blood samples were collected at 0, 2, 4, and 8 hrs after last dosing, 2 animals/time point, for PK analysis.

    [0266] COLO205 tumor cells were cultured in Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium supplemented with 10% FBS, bovine insulin, 100 U/ml penicillin and 100 g/ml streptomycin at 37 °C. BALB/C nude mice, female, 6-8 weeks old, weighing approximately 18-22g, were inoculated subcutaneously at the right flank with COLO205 tumor cells (5 x 106) in 0.1 ml of PBS mixed with matrigel (50:50) for tumor development. The treatment was started when mean tumor size reached approximately 100 mm3, with eight mice in each treatment group randomized to balance the average weight and tumor size. Thereafter tumor sizes were measured twice weekly.

    [0267] B9 cells were expanded in DMEM 10% FBS 1% Penicillin/Streptomycin. Upon trypsinization the cells were washed three times with 20 ml RPMI and after the final centrifugation re-suspended, counted and adjusted by volume to a final concentration of 5 x 107 cells/mL. B9 xenografts were started by injection of 5 x 106 cells subcutaneously in 6-7 week old female nude BALB/c mice. Animals were fed a standard rodent diet and water was supplied ad libitum. Tumor measurements were taken with an electronic microcaliper three times weekly. Also body weights were recorded at these times. Compound dosing started when the average size of tumors reached 50-70 mm3. Animals were equally distributed over treatment groups (n=10) to balance the average tumor size. Animals were dosed orally for day 1-14 twice daily and day 15-28 once daily with vehicle, vemurafenib 50 mg/kg or Compound A 50 mg/kg. TPA was put twice a week on the skin of all mice during weeks 3 and 4 at a dose of 2 µg in 200 µl acetone.

    Crystallization and structure determination



    [0268] Expression and purification of BRAF and BRAFV600E were carried out as previously described (Tsai, J. et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105, 3041-3046 (2008)). Crystallization drops were prepared by mixing the protein solution with 1mM of compound and the same amount of reservoir, and drops were incubated by vapor diffusion (sitting drops) at 4°C. The mother liquor used to obtain co-crystals of compound A, dabrafenib and compound P-0352 with BRAFV600E consists of 0.1 M BisTris at pH 6.0, 12.5% 2,5-hexabediol, 12% PEG3350. All co-crystals were flash-frozen with liquid nitrogen, but BRAFV600E co-crystals were soaked in a solution containing the mother liquor plus 20% glycerol, prior to flash-freezing. X-ray diffraction data were collected at beamline 8.3.1 at the Advanced Light Source (Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, CA, USA) and beamline 9.1 at Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (Stanford University, CA USA). Data were processed and scaled using MOSFLM (Powell, H. R. Acta Crystallogr D Biol Crystallogr 55, 1690-1695 (1999)) and SCALA in the CCP4 package (Winn, M. D. et al. Acta Crystallogr D Biol Crystallogr 67, 235-242 (2011)). All co-structures were solved using molecular replacement with the program MOLREP (Vagin, A. et al. Acta Crystallogr D Biol Crystallogr 66, 22-25 (2010)). The starting models used for are the inhibitor bound BRAFV600E and BRAFWT, respectively (Protein Data Bank accession codes 4FK3, 1UWJ). The final models were obtained after several rounds of manual rebuilding and refinement with PHENIX (Adams, P. D. et al. Acta Crystallogr D Biol Crystallogr 66, 213-221 (2010)) and REFMAC (Murshudov, G. N. et al. Acta Crystallogr D Biol Crystallogr 53, 240-255 (1997)). A summary of the crystallography statistics is included in Table 5.
