Description

FIELD OF THE INVENTION



[0001] The invention provides novel tricyclic compounds, pharmaceutical compositions comprising the compounds, and their use in methods, for example, for the treatment or prophylaxis of certain cancers and to their use in therapy.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION



[0002] The genomes of eukaryotic organisms are highly organized within the nucleus of the cell. The long strands of duplex DNA are wrapped around an octomer of histone proteins to form a nucleosome. This basic unit is then further compressed by the aggregation and folding of nucleosomes to form a highly condensed chromatin structure. A range of different states of condensation are possible, and the tightness of this structure varies during the cell cycle, being most compact during the process of cell division. There has been appreciation recently that chromatin templates form a fundamentally important set of gene control mechanisms referred to as epigenetic regulation. By conferring a wide range of specific chemical modifications to histones and DNA (such as acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation, ubiquitinylation and SUMOylation) epigenetic regulators modulate the structure, function and accessibility of our genome, thereby exerting a huge impact in gene expression.

[0003] Histone acetylation is most usually associated with the activation of gene transcription, as the modification loosens the interaction of the DNA and the histone octomer by changing the electrostatics. In addition to this physical change, specific proteins bind to acetylated lysine residues within histones to read the epigenetic code. Bromodomains are small (∼110 amino acid) distinct domains within proteins that bind to acetylated lysine residues commonly but not exclusively in the context of histones. There is a family of around 50 proteins known to contain bromodomains, and they have a range of functions within the cell. The BET family of bromodomain containing proteins comprises 4 proteins (BRD2, BRD3, BRD4 and BRD-T) which contain tandem bromodomains capable of binding to two acetylated lysine residues in close proximity, increasing the specificity of the interaction.

[0004] BRD2 and BRD3 are reported to associate with histones along actively transcribed genes and may be involved in facilitating transcriptional elongation (Leroy et al., Mol. Cell. 2008 30(1):51-60), while BRD4 appears to be involved in the recruitment of the pTEF-I3 complex to inducible genes, resulting in phosphorylation of RNA polymerase and increased transcriptional output (Hargreaves et al., Cell, 2009 138(1): 1294145). All family members have been reported to have some function in controlling or executing aspects of the cell cycle, and have been shown to remain in complex with chromosomes during cell division - suggesting a role in the maintenance of epigenetic memory. In addition some viruses make use of these proteins to tether their genomes to the host cell chromatin, as part of the process of viral replication (You et al., Cell, 2004 117(3):349-60). Recent articles relating to this target include Prinjha et al., Trends in Pharmacological Sciences, March 2012, Vol. 33, No. 3, pp. 146-153; Conway, ACS Med. Chem. Lett., 2012, 3, 691-694 and Hewings et al., J. Med. Chem., 2012, 55, 9393-9413.

[0005] Small molecule BET inhibitors that are reported to be in development include GSK-525762A, OTX-015, TEN-010 as well as others from the University of Oxford and Constellation Pharmaceuticals Inc.

[0006] WO 2014/164596 relates to fused tricyclic systems, which are described to be useful as inhibitors of BET bromodomains.

[0007] WO 2014/134232 describes carbazole compounds, which are deemed to be useful as bromodomain inhibitors.

[0008] WO 2014/086739 relates to benzimidazole derivatives, which are described as being useful as EP4 antagonists.

[0009] WO 2014/134267 relates to carbazole compounds, which are described to be useful as bromodomain inhibitors.

[0010] WO 2012/145173 relates to materials for light emitting diodes, wherein the materials comprise fused tricyclic systems.

[0011] WO 2013/046635 describes materials for organic electroluminescent elements, wherein the materials may comprise fused tricyclic systems.

[0012] Görlitzer et al., "Reaktionen von 4,5-Dihydro-4-oxo-1H-pyrido[3,2-b]indol-2-carbonsäureestern", Die Pharmazie, Govi Verlag, Pharmazeutischer Verlag GmbH, Vol. 55, No. 4, pages 273 to 281, describe fused pyrido indole derivatives and reactions thereof.

[0013] Hundreds of epigenetic effectors have been identified, many of which are chromatin-binding proteins or chromatin-modifying enzymes. These proteins have been associated with a variety of disorders such as neurodegenerative disorders, metabolic diseases, inflammation and cancer. Thus, these compounds which inhibit the binding of a bromodomain with its cognate acetylated proteins, promise new approaches in the treatment of a range of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases or conditions and in the treatment of various types of cancer.

[0055] In one embodiment the disease or condition for which a bromodomain inhibitor is indicated is selected from diseases associated with systemic inflammatory response syndrome, such as sepsis, burns, pancreatitis, major trauma, hemorrhage and ischemia. In this embodiment, the bromodomain inhibitor would be administered at the point of diagnosis to reduce the incidence of SIRS, the onset of shock, multi-organ dysfunction syndrome, which includes the onset of acute lung injury, ARDS, acute renal, hepatic, cardiac and gastro-intestinal injury and mortality. In another embodiment the bromodomain inhibitor would be administered prior to surgical or other procedures associated with a high risk of sepsis, hemorrhage, extensive tissue damage, SIRS or MODS (multiple organ dysfunction syndrome). In a particular embodiment the disease or condition for which a bromodomain inhibitor is indicated is sepsis, sepsis syndrome, septic shock and endotoxemia. In another embodiment, the bromodomain inhibitor is indicated for the treatment of acute or acute on chronic pancreatitis. In another embodiment the bromodomain inhibitor is indicated for the treatment of burns.

[0056] In one embodiment the disease or condition for which a bromodomain inhibitor is indicated is selected from herpes simplex infections and reactivations, cold sores, herpes zoster infections and reactivations, chickenpox, shingles, human papilloma virus, cervical neoplasia, adenovirus infections, including acute respiratory disease, and poxvirus infections such as cowpox and smallpox and African swine fever virus.

[0057] The term "diseases or conditions for which a bromodomain inhibitor is indicated" is intended to include any of or all of the above disease states.

[0058] In one embodiment, there is provided a compound of the invention for use in a method for inhibiting a bromodomain which comprises contacting the bromodomain with a compound of the invention.

[0059] While it is possible that for use in therapy, a compound of the invention may be administered as the compound itself, it is more commonly presented as a pharmaceutical composition.

[0060] Pharmaceutical compositions may be presented in unit dose forms containing a predetermined amount of active ingredient pep unit dose. Preferred unit dosage compositions are those containing a daily dose or sub-dose, or an appropriate fraction thereof, of an active ingredient. Such unit doses may therefore be administered more than once a day. Preferred unit dosage compositions are those containing a daily dose or sub-dose (for administration more than once a day), as herein above recited, or an appropriate fraction thereof, of an active ingredient.

[0061] Types of cancers that may be treated with the compounds of this invention include, but are not limited to, brain cancers, skin cancers, bladder cancers, ovarian cancers, breast cancers, gastric cancers, pancreatic cancers, prostate cancers, colon cancers, blood cancers, lung cancers and bone cancers. Examples of such cancer types include neuroblastoma, intestine carcinoma such as rectum carcinoma, colon carcinoma, familiar adenomatous polyposis carcinoma and hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer, esophageal carcinoma, labial carcinoma, larynx carcinoma, hypopharynx carcinoma, tong carcinoma, salivary gland carcinoma, gastric carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, medullary thyroid carcinoma, papillary thyroid carcinoma, renal carcinoma, kidney parenchymal carcinoma, ovarian carcinoma, cervix carcinoma, uterine corpus carcinoma, endometrium carcinoma, chorion carcinoma, pancreatic carcinoma, prostate carcinoma, testis carcinoma, breast carcinoma, urinary carcinoma, melanoma, brain tumors such as glioblastoma, astrocytoma, meningioma, medulloblastoma and peripheral neuroectodermal tumors, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Burkitt lymphoma, acute lymphatic leukemia (ALL), chronic lymphatic leukemia (CLL), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), adult T-cell leukemia lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), hepatocellular carcinoma, gall bladder carcinoma, bronchial carcinoma, small cell lung carcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, multiple myeloma, basalioma, teratoma, retinoblastoma, choroid melanoma, seminoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, craniopharyngioma, osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, myosarcoma, liposarcoma, fibrosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma and plasmocytoma.

[0062] In addition to apoptosis defects found in tumors, defects in the ability to eliminate self- reactive cells of the immune system due to apoptosis resistance are considered to play a key role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases are characterized in that the cells of the immune system produce antibodies against its own organs and molecules or directly attack tissues resulting in the destruction of the latter. A failure of those self-reactive cells to undergo apoptosis leads to the manifestation of the disease. Defects in apoptosis regulation have been identified in autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus or rheumatoid arthritis.

[0063] Thus, according to another embodiment, the invention provides a compound of the invention for use in a method of treating an autoimmune disease by providing to a patient in need thereof a compound or composition of the present invention. Examples of such autoimmune diseases include, but are not limited to, collagen diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus. Sharp's syndrome, CREST syndrome (calcinosis, Raynaud's syndrome, esophageal dysmotility, telangiectasia), dermatomyositis, vasculitis (Morbus Wegener's) and Sjogren's syndrome, renal diseases such as Goodpasture's syndrome, rapidly-progressing glomerulonephritis and membrano-proliferative glomerulonephritis type II, endocrine diseases such as type-I diabetes, autoimmune polyendocrinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy (APECED), autoimmune parathyroidism, pernicious anemia, gonad insufficiency, idiopathic Morbus Addison's, hyperthyreosis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis and primary myxedema, skin diseases such as pemphigus vulgaris, bullous pemphigoid, herpes gestationis, epidermolysis bullosa and erythema multiforme major, liver diseases such as primary biliary cirrhosis, autoimmune cholangitis, autoimmune hepatitis type-1, autoimmune hepatitis type-2, primary sclerosing cholangitis, neuronal diseases such as multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, myasthenic Lambert-Eaton syndrome, acquired neuromyotomy, Guillain-Barre syndrome (Muller-Fischer syndrome), stiff-man syndrome, cerebellar degeneration, ataxia, opsoclonus, sensoric neuropathy and achalasia, blood diseases such as autoimmune hemolytic anemia, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (Morbus Werlhof), infectious diseases with associated autoimmune reactions such as AIDS, malaria and Chagas disease.

[0064] Compounds of the invention are useful for the treatment of certain types of cancer by themselves or in combination or co-administration with other therapeutic agents or radiation therapy. Thus, in one embodiment, the compounds of the invention are co-administered with radiation therapy or a second therapeutic agent with cytostatic or antineoplastic activity. Suitable cytostatic chemotherapy compounds include, but are not limited to (i) antimetabolites; (ii) DNA-fragmenting agents, (iii) DNA-crosslinking agents, (iv) intercalating agents (v) protein synthesis inhibitors, (vi) topoisomerase I poisons, such as camptothecin or topotecan; (vii) topoisomerase II poisons, (viii) microtubule-directed agents, (ix) kinase inhibitors (x) miscellaneous investigational agents (xi) hormones and (xii) hormone antagonists.

[0088] The combination therapy is intended to embrace administration of these therapeutic agents in a sequential manner, that is, wherein each therapeutic agent is administered at a different time, as well as administration of these therapeutic agents, or at least two of the therapeutic agents, in a substantially simultaneous manner. Substantially simultaneous administration can be accomplished, for example, by administering to the subject a single dosage form having a fixed ratio of each therapeutic agent or in multiple, single dosage forms for each of the therapeutic agents. Sequential or substantially simultaneous administration of each therapeutic agent can be effected by any appropriate route including, but not limited to, oral routes, intravenous routes, intramuscular routes, and direct absorption through mucous membrane tissues. The therapeutic agents can be administered by the same route or by different routes. For example, a first therapeutic agent of the combination selected may be administered by intravenous injection while the other therapeutic agents of the combination may be administered orally. Alternatively, for example, all therapeutic agents may be administered orally or all therapeutic agents may be administered by intravenous injection. Combination therapy also can embrace the administration of the therapeutic agents as described above in further combination with other biologically active ingredients and non-drug therapies (e.g., surgery or radiation treatment.) Where the combination therapy further comprises a non-drug treatment, the non-drug treatment may be conducted at any suitable time so long as a beneficial effect from the co-action of the combination of the therapeutic agents and non-drug treatment is achieved. For example, in appropriate cases, the beneficial effect is still achieved when the non-drug treatment is temporally removed from the administration of the therapeutic agents, perhaps by days or even weeks.

[0089] The invention also provides pharmaceutically acceptable compositions which comprise a therapeutically effective amount of one or more of the compounds of the invention, formulated together with one or more pharmaceutically acceptable carriers (additives) and/or diluents, and optionally, one or more additional therapeutic agents described above. As described in detail below, the pharmaceutical compositions of the present invention may be specially formulated for administration in solid or liquid form, including those adapted for the following: (1) oral administration, for example, drenches (aqueous or non-aqueous solutions or suspensions), tablets, e.g., those targeted for buccal, sublingual, and systemic absorption, boluses, powders, granules, pastes for application to the tongue; (2) parenteral administration, for example, by subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous or epidural injection as, for example, a sterile solution or suspension, or sustained release formulation; (3) topical application, for example, as a cream, ointment, or a controlled release patch or spray applied to the skin; (4) intravaginally or intrarectally, for example, as a pessary, cream or foam; (5) sublingually; (6) ocularly; (7) transdermally; or (8) nasally.

[0090] The phrase "pharmaceutically acceptable" is employed herein to refer to those compounds, materials, compositions, and/or dosage forms which are, within the scope of sound medical judgment, suitable for use in contact with the tissues of human beings and animals without excessive toxicity, irritation, allergic response, or other problem or complication, commensurate with a reasonable benefit/risk ratio.

[0091] The phrase "pharmaceutically acceptable carrier" as used herein means a pharmaceutically acceptable material, composition or vehicle, such as a liquid or solid filler, diluent, excipient, manufacturing aid (e.g., lubricant, talc magnesium, calcium or zinc stearate, or steric acid), or solvent encapsulating material, involved in carrying or transporting the subject compound from one organ, or portion of the body, to another organ, or portion of the body. Each carrier must be "acceptable" in the sense of being compatible with the other ingredients of the formulation and not injurious to the patient. Some examples of materials which can serve as pharmaceutically-acceptable carriers include: (1) sugars, such as lactose, glucose and sucrose; (2) starches, such as corn starch and potato starch; (3) cellulose, and its derivatives, such as sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, ethyl cellulose and cellulose acetate; (4) powdered tragacanth; (5) malt; (6) gelatin; (7) talc; (8) excipients, such as cocoa butter and suppository waxes; (9) oils, such as peanut oil, cottonseed oil, safflower oil, sesame oil, olive oil, corn oil and soybean oil; (10) glycols, such as propylene glycol; (11) polyols, such as glycerin, sorbitol, mannitol and polyethylene glycol; (12) esters, such as ethyl oleate and ethyl laurate; (13) agar; (14) buffering agents, such as magnesium hydroxide and aluminum hydroxide; (15) alginic acid; (16) pyrogen-free water; (17) isotonic saline; (18) Ringer's solution; (19) ethyl alcohol; (20) pH buffered solutions; (21) polyesters, polycarbonates and/or polyanhydrides; and (22) other non-toxic compatible substances employed in pharmaceutical formulations.

[0093] Examples of pharmaceutically-acceptable antioxidants include: (1) water soluble antioxidants, such as ascorbic acid, cysteine hydrochloride, sodium bisulfate, sodium metabisulfite, sodium sulfite and the like; (2) oil-soluble antioxidants, such as ascorbyl palmitate, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), lecithin, propyl gallate, alpha-tocopherol, and the like; and (3) metal chelating agents, such as citric acid, ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), sorbitol, tartaric acid, phosphoric acid, and the like.

[0094] Formulations of the present invention include those suitable for oral, nasal, topical (including buccal and sublingual), rectal, vaginal and/or parenteral administration. The formulations may conveniently be presented in unit dosage form and may be prepared by any methods well known in the art of pharmacy. The amount of active ingredient which can be combined with a carrier material to produce a single dosage form will vary depending upon the patient being treated and the particular mode of administration. The amount of active ingredient which can be combined with a carrier material to produce a single dosage form will generally be that amount of the compound which produces a therapeutic effect. Generally, out of one hundred percent, this amount will range from about 0.1 percent to about ninety-nine percent of active ingredient, preferably from about 5 percent to about 70 percent, most preferably from about 10 percent to about 30 percent.

[0095] In certain embodiments, a formulation of the present invention comprises an excipient selected from the group consisting of cyclodextrins, celluloses, liposomes, micelle forming agents, e.g., bile acids, and polymeric carriers, e.g., polyesters and polyanhydrides; and a compound of the present invention. In certain embodiments, an aforementioned formulation renders orally bioavailable a compound of the present invention.

[0096] Methods of preparing these formulations or compositions include the step of bringing into association a compound of the present invention with the carrier and, optionally, one or more accessory ingredients. In general, the formulations are prepared by uniformly and intimately bringing into association a compound of the present invention with liquid carriers, or finely divided solid carriers, or both, and then, if necessary, shaping the product.

[0097] Formulations of the invention suitable for oral administration may be in the form of capsules, cachets, pills, tablets, lozenges (using a flavored basis, usually sucrose and acacia or tragacanth), powders, granules, or as a solution or a suspension in an aqueous or non-aqueous liquid, or as an oil-in-water or water-in-oil liquid emulsion, or as an elixir or syrup, or as pastilles (using an inert base, such as gelatin and glycerin, or sucrose and acacia) and/or as mouth washes and the like, each containing a predetermined amount of a compound of the present invention as an active ingredient. A compound of the present invention may also be administered as a bolus, electuary or paste.

[0098] In solid dosage forms of the invention for oral administration (capsules, tablets, pills, dragees, powders, granules, troches and the like), the active ingredient is mixed with one or more pharmaceutically acceptable carriers, such as sodium citrate or dicalcium phosphate, and/or any of the following: (1) fillers or extenders, such as starches, lactose, sucrose, glucose, mannitol, and/or silicic acid; (2) binders, such as, for example, carboxymethylcellulose, alginates, gelatin, polyvinyl pyrrolidone, sucrose and/or acacia; (3) humectants, such as glycerol; (4) disintegrating agents, such as agar-agar, calcium carbonate, potato or tapioca starch, alginic acid, certain silicates, and sodium carbonate; (5) solution retarding agents, such as paraffin; (6) absorption accelerators, such as quaternary ammonium compounds and surfactants, such as poloxamer and sodium lauryl sulfate; (7) wetting agents, such as, for example, cetyl alcohol, glycerol monostearate, and non-ionic surfactants; (8) absorbents, such as kaolin and bentonite clay; (9) lubricants, such as talc, calcium stearate, magnesium stearate, solid polyethylene glycols, sodium lauryl sulfate, zinc stearate, sodium stearate, stearic acid, and mixtures thereof; (10) coloring agents; and (11) controlled release agents such as crospovidone or ethyl cellulose. In the case of capsules, tablets and pills, the pharmaceutical compositions may also comprise buffering agents. Solid compositions of a similar type may also be employed as fillers in soft and hard shelled gelatin capsules using such excipients as lactose or milk sugars, as well as high molecular weight polyethylene glycols and the like.

[0099] A tablet may be made by compression or molding, optionally with one or more accessory ingredients. Compressed tablets may be prepared using binder (for example, gelatin or hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose), lubricant, inert diluent, preservative, disintegrant (for example, sodium starch glycolate or cross-linked sodium carboxymethyl cellulose), surface active or dispersing agent. Molded tablets may be made by molding in a suitable machine a mixture of the powdered compound moistened with an inert liquid diluent.

[0100] The tablets, and other solid dosage forms of the pharmaceutical compositions of the present invention, such as dragees, capsules, pills and granules, may optionally be scored or prepared with coatings and shells, such as enteric coatings and other coatings well known in the pharmaceutical formulating art. They may also be formulated so as to provide slow or controlled release of the active ingredient therein using, for example, hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose in varying proportions to provide the desired release profile, other polymer matrices, liposomes and/or microspheres. They may be formulated for rapid release, e.g., freeze-dried. They may be sterilized by, for example, filtration through a bacteria retaining filter, or by incorporating sterilizing agents in the form of sterile solid compositions which can be dissolved in sterile water, or some other sterile injectable medium immediately before use. These compositions may also optionally contain opacifying agents and may be of a composition that they release the active ingredient(s) only, or preferentially, in a certain portion of the gastrointestinal tract, optionally, in a delayed manner. Examples of embedding compositions which can be used include polymeric substances and waxes. The active ingredient can also be in micro-encapsulated form, if appropriate, with one or more of the above described excipients.

[0101] Liquid dosage forms for oral administration of the compounds of the invention include pharmaceutically acceptable emulsions, microemulsions, solutions, suspensions, syrups and elixirs. In addition to the active ingredient, the liquid dosage forms may contain inert diluents commonly used in the art, such as, for example, water or other solvents, solubilizing agents and emulsifiers, such as ethyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, ethyl carbonate, ethyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, benzyl benzoate, propylene glycol, 1,3-butylene glycol, oils (in particular, cottonseed, groundnut, corn, germ, olive, castor and sesame oils), glycerol, tetrahydrofuryl alcohol, polyethylene glycols and fatty acid esters of sorbitan, and mixtures thereof.

[0102] Besides inert diluents, the oral compositions can also include adjuvants such as wetting agents, emulsifying and suspending agents, sweetening, flavoring, coloring, perfuming and preservative agents.

[0103] Suspensions, in addition to the active compounds, may contain suspending agents as, for example, ethoxylated isostearyl alcohols, polyoxyethylene sorbitol and sorbitan esters, microcrystalline cellulose, aluminum metahydroxide, bentonite, agar-agar and tragacanth, and mixtures thereof.

[0104] Formulations of the pharmaceutical compositions of the invention for rectal or vaginal administration may be presented as a suppository, which may be prepared by mixing one or more compounds of the invention with one or more suitable nonirritating excipients or carriers comprising, for example, cocoa butter, polyethylene glycol, a suppository wax or a salicylate, and which is solid at room temperature, but liquid at body temperature and, therefore, will melt in the rectum or vaginal cavity and release the active compound.

[0105] Formulations of the present invention which are suitable for vaginal administration also include pessaries, tampons, creams, gels, pastes, foams or spray formulations containing such carriers as are known in the art to be appropriate.

[0106] Dosage forms for the topical or transdermal administration of a compound of this invention include powders, sprays, ointments, pastes, creams, lotions, gels, solutions, patches and inhalants. The active compound may be mixed under sterile conditions with a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier, and with any preservatives, buffers, or propellants which may be required.

[0107] The ointments, pastes, creams and gels may contain, in addition to an active compound of this invention, excipients, such as animal and vegetable fats, oils, waxes, paraffins, starch, tragacanth, cellulose derivatives, polyethylene glycols, silicones, bentonites, silicic acid, talc and zinc oxide, or mixtures thereof.

[0108] Powders and sprays can contain, in addition to a compound of this invention, excipients such as lactose, talc, silicic acid, aluminum hydroxide, calcium silicates and polyamide powder, or mixtures of these substances. Sprays can additionally contain customary propellants, such as chlorofluorohydrocarbons and volatile unsubstituted hydrocarbons, such as butane and propane.

[0109] Transdermal patches have the added advantage of providing controlled delivery of a compound of the present invention to the body. Such dosage forms can be made by dissolving or dispersing the compound in the proper medium. Absorption enhancers can also be used to increase the flux of the compound across the skin. The rate of such flux can be controlled by either providing a rate controlling membrane or dispersing the compound in a polymer matrix or gel.

[0110] Ophthalmic formulations, eye ointments, powders, solutions and the like, are also contemplated as being within the scope of this invention.

[0111] Pharmaceutical compositions of this invention suitable for parenteral administration comprise one or more compounds of the invention in combination with one or more pharmaceutically acceptable sterile isotonic aqueous or non-aqueous solutions, dispersions, suspensions or emulsions, or sterile powders which may be reconstituted into sterile injectable solutions or dispersions just prior to use, which may contain sugars, alcohols, antioxidants, buffers, bacteriostats, solutes which render the formulation isotonic with the blood of the intended recipient or suspending or thickening agents.

[0112] Examples of suitable aqueous and non-aqueous carriers which may be employed in the pharmaceutical compositions of the invention include water, ethanol, polyols (such as glycerol, propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol, and the like), and suitable mixtures thereof, vegetable oils, such as olive oil, and injectable organic esters, such as ethyl oleate. Proper fluidity can be maintained, for example, by the use of coating materials, such as lecithin, by the maintenance of the required particle size in the case of dispersions, and by the use of surfactants.

[0113] These compositions may also contain adjuvants such as preservatives, wetting agents, emulsifying agents and dispersing agents. Prevention of the action of microorganisms upon the subject compounds may be ensured by the inclusion of various antibacterial and antifungal agents, for example, paraben, chlorobutanol, phenol sorbic acid, and the like. It may also be desirable to include isotonic agents, such as sugars, sodium chloride, and the like into the compositions. In addition, prolonged absorption of the injectable pharmaceutical form may be brought about by the inclusion of agents which delay absorption such as aluminum monostearate and gelatin.

[0114] In some cases, in order to prolong the effect of a drug, it is desirable to slow the absorption of the drug from subcutaneous or intramuscular injection. This may be accomplished by the use of a liquid suspension of crystalline or amorphous material having poor water solubility. The rate of absorption of the drug then depends upon its rate of dissolution which, in turn, may depend upon crystal size and crystalline form. Alternatively, delayed absorption of a parenterally administered drug form is accomplished by dissolving or suspending the drug in an oil vehicle.

[0115] Injectable depot forms are made by forming microencapsuled matrices of the subject compounds in biodegradable polymers such as polylactide-polyglycolide. Depending on the ratio of drug to polymer, and the nature of the particular polymer employed, the rate of drug release can be controlled. Examples of other biodegradable polymers include poly(orthoesters) and poly(anhydrides). Depot injectable formulations are also prepared by entrapping the drug in liposomes or microemulsions which are compatible with body tissue.

[0116] When the compounds of the present invention are administered as pharmaceuticals, to humans and animals, they can be given per se or as a pharmaceutical composition containing, for example, 0.1 to 99% (more preferably, 10 to 30%) of active ingredient in combination with a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

[0117] Regardless of the route of administration selected, the compounds of the present invention, which may be used in a suitable hydrated form, and/or the pharmaceutical compositions of the present invention, are formulated into pharmaceutically acceptable dosage forms by conventional methods known to those of skill in the art.

[0118] Actual dosage levels of the active ingredients in the pharmaceutical compositions of this invention may be varied so as to obtain an amount of the active ingredient which is effective to achieve the desired therapeutic response for a particular patient, composition, and mode of administration, without being toxic to the patient.

[0119] The selected dosage level will depend upon a variety of factors including the activity of the particular compound of the present invention employed, or the ester, salt or amide thereof, the route of administration, the time of administration, the rate of excretion or metabolism of the particular compound being employed, the rate and extent of absorption, the duration of the treatment, other drugs, compounds and/or materials used in combination with the particular compound employed, the age, sex, weight, condition, general health and prior medical history of the patient being treated, and like factors well known in the medical arts.

[0120] A physician or veterinarian having ordinary skill in the art can readily determine and prescribe the effective amount of the pharmaceutical composition required. For example, the physician or veterinarian could start doses of the compounds of the invention employed in the pharmaceutical composition at levels lower than that required in order to achieve the desired therapeutic effect and gradually increase the dosage until the desired effect is achieved.

[0121] In general, a suitable daily dose of a compound of the invention will be that amount of the compound which is the lowest dose effective to produce a therapeutic effect. Such an effective dose will generally depend upon the factors described above. Generally, oral, intravenous, intracerebroventricular and subcutaneous doses of the compounds of this invention for a patient will range from about 0.01 to about 50 mg per kilogram of body weight per day.

[0122] If desired, the effective daily dose of the active compound may be administered as two, three, four, five, six or more sub-doses administered separately at appropriate intervals throughout the day, optionally, in unit dosage forms. In certain aspects of the invention, dosing is one administration per day.

[0123] While it is possible for a compound of the present invention to be administered alone, it is preferable to administer the compound as a pharmaceutical formulation (composition).

Such amine protecting groups fitting these criteria include those listed in Wuts, P. G. M. and Greene, T.W. Protecting Groups in Organic Synthesis, 4th Edition, Wiley (2007) and The Peptides: Analysis, Synthesis, Biology, Vol. 3, Academic Press, New York (1981).

[0152] As referred to herein, the term "substituted" means that at least one hydrogen atom is replaced with a non-hydrogen group, provided that normal valencies are maintained and that the substitution results in a stable compound. Ring double bonds, as used herein, are double bonds that are formed between two adjacent ring atoms (e.g., C=C, C=N, or N=N).

[0153] In cases wherein there are nitrogen atoms (e.g., amines) on compounds of the present invention, these may be converted to N-oxides by treatment with an oxidizing agent (e.g., mCPBA and/or hydrogen peroxides) to afford other compounds of this invention. Thus, shown and claimed nitrogen atoms are considered to cover both the shown nitrogen and its N-oxide (N→O) derivative.

[0154] When any variable occurs more than one time in any constituent or formula for a compound, its definition at each occurrence is independent of its definition at every other occurrence. Thus, for example, if a group is shown to be substituted with 0-3 R, then said group may optionally be substituted with up to three R groups, and at each occurrence R is selected independently from the definition of R. Also, combinations of substituents and/or variables are permissible only if such combinations result in stable compounds.

[0155] When a bond to a substituent is shown to cross a bond connecting two atoms in a ring, then such substituent may be bonded to any atom on the ring. When a substituent is listed without indicating the atom in which such substituent is bonded to the rest of the compound of a given formula, then such substituent may be bonded via any atom in such substituent. Combinations of substituents and/or variables are permissible only if such combinations result in stable compounds.

[0156] The present invention is intended to include all isotopes of atoms occurring in the present compounds. Isotopes include those atoms having the same atomic number but different mass numbers. By way of general example and without limitation, isotopes of hydrogen include deuterium and tritium. The isotopes of hydrogen can be denoted as 1H (hydrogen), 2H (deuterium) and 3H (tritium). They are also commonly denoted as D for deuterium and T for tritium. In the application, CD3 denotes a methyl group wherein all of the hydrogen atoms are deuterium. Isotopes of carbon include 13C and 14C. Isotopically-labeled compounds of the invention can generally be prepared by conventional techniques known to those skilled in the art or by processes analogous to those described herein, using an appropriate isotopically-labeled reagent in place of the non-labeled reagent otherwise employed.

[0157] As used herein, "pharmaceutically acceptable salts" refer to derivatives of the disclosed compounds wherein the parent compound is modified by making acid or base salts thereof. Examples of pharmaceutically acceptable salts include, but are not limited to, mineral or organic acid salts of basic groups such as amines; and alkali or organic salts of acidic groups such as carboxylic acids. The pharmaceutically acceptable salts include the conventional non-toxic salts or the quaternary ammonium salts of the parent compound formed, for example, from non-toxic inorganic or organic acids. For example, such conventional non-toxic salts include those derived from inorganic acids such as hydrochloric, hydrobromic, sulfuric, sulfamic, phosphoric, and nitric; and the salts prepared from organic acids such as acetic, propionic, succinic, glycolic, stearic, lactic, malic, tartaric, citric, ascorbic, pamoic, maleic, hydroxymaleic, phenylacetic, glutamic, benzoic, salicylic, sulfanilic, 2-acetoxybenzoic, fumaric, toluenesulfonic, methanesulfonic, ethane disulfonic, oxalic, and isethionic, and the like.

[0158] The pharmaceutically acceptable salts of the present invention can be synthesized from the parent compound that contains a basic or acidic moiety by conventional chemical methods. Generally, such salts can be prepared by reacting the free acid or base forms of these compounds with a stoichiometric amount of the appropriate base or acid in water or in an organic solvent, or in a mixture of the two; generally, nonaqueous media like ether, ethyl acetate, ethanol, isopropanol, or acetonitrile are preferred. Lists of suitable salts are found in Remington: The Science and Practice of Pharmacy, 22nd Edition, Allen, L. V. Jr., Ed.; Pharmaceutical Press, London, UK (2012).

[0159] In addition, compounds of formula I may have prodrug forms. Any compound that will be converted in vivo to provide the bioactive agent (i.e., a compound of formula I) is a prodrug. Various forms of prodrugs are well known in the art. For examples of such prodrug derivatives, see:

[0160] Compounds containing a carboxy group can form physiologically hydrolyzable esters that serve as prodrugs by being hydrolyzed in the body to yield formula I compounds per se. Such prodrugs are preferably administered orally since hydrolysis in many instances occurs principally under the influence of the digestive enzymes. Parenteral administration may be used where the ester per se is active, or in those instances where hydrolysis occurs in the blood. Examples of physiologically hydrolyzable esters of compounds of formula I include C1-6alkyl, C1-6alkylbenzyl, 4-methoxybenzyl, indanyl, phthalyl, methoxymethyl, C1-6 alkanoyloxy-C1-6alkyl (e.g., acetoxymethyl, pivaloyloxymethyl or propionyloxymethyl), C1-6alkoxycarbonyloxy-C1-6alkyl (e.g., methoxycarbonyl-oxymethyl or ethoxycarbonyloxymethyl, glycyloxymethyl, phenylglycyloxymethyl, (5-methyl-2-oxo-1,3-dioxolen-4-yl)-methyl), and other well known physiologically hydrolyzable esters used, for example, in the penicillin and cephalosporin arts. Such esters may be prepared by conventional techniques known in the art. Preparation of prodrugs is well known in the art and described in, for example, King, F.D., ed., Medicinal Chemistry: Principles and Practice, The Royal Society of Chemistry, Cambridge, UK (2nd edition, reproduced, 2006); Testa, B. et al., Hydrolysis in Drug and Prodrug Metabolism. Chemistry, Biochemistry and Enzymology, VCHA and Wiley-VCH, Zurich, Switzerland (2003); Wermuth, C.G., ed., The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry, 3rd edition, Academic Press, San Diego, CA (2008).

[0161] The term "solvate" means a physical association of a compound of this invention with one or more solvent molecules, whether organic or inorganic. This physical association includes hydrogen bonding. In certain instances the solvate will be capable of isolation, for example when one or more solvent molecules are incorporated in the crystal lattice of the crystalline solid. The solvent molecules in the solvate may be present in a regular arrangement and/or a non-ordered arrangement. The solvate may comprise either a stoichiometric or nonstoichiometric amount of the solvent molecules. "Solvate" encompasses both solution-phase and isolable solvates. Exemplary solvates include, but are not limited to, hydrates, ethanolates, methanolates, and isopropanolates. Methods of solvation are generally known in the art.

[0162] As used herein, the term "patient" refers to organisms to be treated by the methods disclosed herein. Such organisms preferably include, but are not limited to, mammals (e.g., murines, simians, equines, bovines, porcines, canines, felines, and the like), and most preferably refers to humans.

[0163] As used herein, the term "effective amount" means that amount of a drug or pharmaceutical agent, i.e., a compound of the invention, that will elicit the biological or medical response of a tissue, system, animal or human that is being sought, for instance, by a researcher or clinician. Furthermore, the term "therapeutically effective amount" means any amount which, as compared to a corresponding subject who has not received such amount, results in improved treatment, healing, prevention, or amelioration of a disease, disorder, or side effect, or a decrease in the rate of advancement of a disease or disorder. An effective amount can be administered in one or more administrations, applications or dosages and is not intended to be limited to a particular formulation or administration route. The term also includes within its scope amounts effective to enhance normal physiological function

[0164] As used herein, the term "treating" includes any effect, e.g., lessening, reducing, modulating, ameliorating or eliminating, that results in the improvement of the condition, disease, disorder, and the like, or ameliorating a symptom thereof.

[0165] As used herein, the term "pharmaceutical composition" refers to the combination of an active agent with a carrier, inert or active, making the composition especially suitable for diagnostic or therapeutic use in vivo or ex vivo.

[0166] Examples of bases include, but are not limited to, alkali metals (e.g., sodium) hydroxides, alkaline earth metals (e.g., magnesium), hydroxides, ammonia, and compounds of formula NW4+, wherein W is C1-4 alkyl, and the like.

[0167] For therapeutic use, salts of the compounds of the present invention are contemplated as being pharmaceutically acceptable. However, salts of acids and bases that are non-pharmaceutically acceptable may also find use, for example, in the preparation or purification of a pharmaceutically acceptable compound.

METHODS OF PREPARATION



[0168] The compounds of the present invention can be prepared in a number of ways well known to one skilled in the art of organic synthesis. The compounds of the present invention can be synthesized using the methods described below, together with synthetic methods known in the art of synthetic organic chemistry, or variations thereon as appreciated by those skilled in the art. Preferred methods include, but are not limited to, those described below.

[0169] The compounds of this invention may be prepared using the reactions and techniques described in this section. The reactions are performed in solvents appropriate to the reagents and materials employed and are suitable for the transformations being effected. Also, in the description of the synthetic methods described below, it is to be understood that all proposed reaction conditions, including choice of solvent, reaction atmosphere, reaction temperature, duration of the experiment and work up procedures, are chosen to be the conditions standard for that reaction, which should be readily recognized by one skilled in the art. It is understood by one skilled in the art of organic synthesis that the functionality present on various portions of the molecule must be compatible with the reagents and reactions proposed. Such restrictions to the substituents that are compatible with the reaction conditions will be readily apparent to one skilled in the art and alternate methods must then be used. This will sometimes require a judgment to modify the order of the synthetic steps or to select one particular process scheme over another in order to obtain a desired compound of the invention. It will also be recognized that another major consideration in the planning of any synthetic route in this field is the judicious choice of the protecting group used for protection of the reactive functional groups present in the compounds described in this invention. An authoritative account describing the many alternatives to the trained practitioner is Greene and Wuts (Protective Groups In Organic Synthesis, Third Edition, Wiley and Sons, 1999).

[0170] Compounds of Formula (I) may be prepared by reference to the methods illustrated in the following Schemes. As shown therein the end product is a compound having the same structural formula as Formula (I). It will be understood that any compound of Formula (I) may be produced by the schemes by the suitable selection of reagents with appropriate substitution. Solvents, temperatures, pressures, and other reaction conditions may readily be selected by one of ordinary skill in the art. Starting materials are commercially available or readily prepared by one of ordinary skill in the art. Constituents of compounds are as defined herein or elsewhere in the specification.





[0171] General routes to compounds described in the invention are illustrated in Schemes 1-13, where the R1, R2, X, Y, Z and A substituents are defined previously in the text or a functional group that can be converted to the desired final substituent. The substituent Hal is a halide. L is a leaving group such as a halide or OH that can be easily converted to a leaving group such as a triflate. As shown in Scheme 1, a general procedure for the preparation of compounds of the invention involves starting with the substituted aminopyridine 1. Coupling of 1 with the aromatic heterocycle A (2, where M is a suitable coupling partner, such as boronic acid, boronic ester or stannane) using a suitable catalyst can yield functionalized aminopyridines 3. For example, 3 could arise from a Suzuki coupling reaction between 5-bromo-2-chloropyridin-3-amine and a heteroaromatic boronic acid using Pd(dppf)Cl2 as a catalyst. Subsequent coupling to give the functionalized aniline 6 can be achieved using a variety of conditions known in the literature. For example, aminopyridine 3 can undergo copper-mediated coupling with a suitably substituted arene 4 (where M is a boronic acid, boronic ester or stannane) to give aniline 6. Alternatively, 6 could arise from a Buchwald N-arylation reaction of 3 with an aromatic halide 5 (where Hal is a halide). Ring closure to generate carboline 7 can be achieved using a Pd catalyst in the presence of a base, such as sodium acetate. In the final step, the carboline nitrogen can be substituted under Mitsunobu conditions using triphenylphosphine and diisopropyl azodicarboxylate (DIAD) with an alkylating agent 8 (where X is OH). Alternatively, functionalized carboline 10 can be generated from a displacement reaction between the carboline 7 and an alkylating agent 9, where L is a leaving group such as a halide, mesylate or triflate, in the presence of a base, such as potassium carbonate. In cases where 10 is a racemate, chiral separation can provide enantiomerically pure products. Further derivatization of R1 can provide additional compounds of the invention. For example, when R1 is an ester, addition of a Grignard reagent or alkyl lithium can generate tertiary alcohols. The same R1 ester could instead be hydrolyzed using, for example, sodium hydroxide to give a carboxylic acid (R1 = CO2H) as the final substituent.



[0172] An alternative synthesis of the carbolines 7 and 10 starts from nitropyridine 11 as shown in Schemes 2 to 4. A Suzuki reaction between, for example, 2,5-dibromo-3-nitropyridine and an appropriately substituted arene (12, where M is a suitable coupling partner, such as boronic acid or boronic ester) can give the functionalized pyridine 13. Reductive cyclization mediated by a phosphine reagent, such as 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane (dppe), can provide carboline 14. Coupling of 14 with the aromatic heterocycle A (2, where M is a suitable coupling partner, such as boronic acid, boronic ester or stannane) using a suitable catalyst then generates carboline 7 as shown in Scheme 3.

[0173] Alternately, the carboline nitrogen of intermediate 14 can be first substituted under Mitsunobu conditions with an alkylating agent 8 (where X is OH) or with alkylating agent 9, where L is a leaving group such as a halide, mesylate or triflate, in the presence of a base, such as potassium carbonate as previously described in Scheme 1 to give intermediate 15. Then coupling of 15 with the aromatic heterocycle A (2, where M is a suitable coupling partner, such as boronic acid, boronic ester or stannane) using a suitable catalyst then generates the final carboline 10 as shown in Scheme 4.





[0174] An alternate synthesis of carbolines 10 can be achieved as outlined in Scheme 5. The leaving group, L, of 15 (prepared as in Scheme 4) can be converted to a suitable coupling partner, M (preferably a boronic ester or boronic acid) by the action of a palladium catalyst, affording 16. Coupling of 16 with the aromatic heterocycle A (17, where L is a suitable leaving group, such as a halogen or triflate) using a suitable catalyst can give carbolines 10.



[0175] Hydroxymethyl pyrazole derivatives such as 20 can be accessed according to Scheme 6. Intermediate 16 (where M is a suitable coupling partner such as a boronic acid or boronic ester; prepared as in Scheme 5) can be coupled to an appropriately protected triazole 18 by the action of a suitable catalyst. Triazole 18 is available in one step from a copper-mediated cycloaddition reaction of (azidomethyl)trimethylsilane with a protected propargyl alcohol. Intermediate 19 can then be deprotected using a variety of conditions. For example, when PG is tert-butyldimethylsilyl, treatment with tetrabutylammonium fluoride can give the final compound 20. Further derivatization of the hydroxyl group (for example: alkylation, conversion to a leaving group and displacement, oxidation to either an aldehyde or carboxylic acid and subsequent elaboration) can provide additional compounds of the invention by application of methods which will be readily apparent to one of ordinary skill in the art.



[0176] Alternately, intermediate 15 (prepared as in Scheme 4) can be directly coupled with a suitable aromatic heterocycle, 21, via palladium-mediated C-H activation to afford compounds 10. This is illustrated in Scheme 7.



[0177] Alternately, aromatic heterocycle 21 can be deprotonated with a strong base such as n-BuLi and transmetallated to zinc, tin, or boron to afford compounds 2. Compounds 2 can then be coupled in a Negishi, Stille, or Suzuki coupling to intermediate 15 (prepared as in Scheme 4) by the action of a suitable palladium catalyst to afford compounds 10. This is illustrated in Scheme 8.



[0178] An alternate synthesis of carbolines 14 can be achieved as outlined in Scheme 9. Aniline 22 can be coupled to pyridine 23, where L and L' are two leaving groups such as halide or triflate, using a Buchwald N-arylation reaction to give intermediate 24. For example, 24 could arise from a Buchwald N-arylation reaction between 3,5-dibromopyridine and a suitable aniline. Oxidative ring closure, using an appropriate catalyst such as Pd(OAc)2 in an acidic media such as trifluoroacetic acid, can afford carbolines 14. This is illustrated in Scheme 9.



[0179] Pyridines 23 (where L and L' are suitable leaving groups such as halides or triflates) can also be coupled to aromatic heterocycles 2 (where M is a suitable coupling partner such as a boronic ester, boronic acid, or stannane) or 21 by methods analogous to those illustrated in Schemes 1, 3, 4, 7, and 8. Pyridines 25 can be coupled to anilines 22, using a Buchwald N-arylation reaction to give intermediate 26. Oxidative ring closure, using an appropriate catalyst such as Pd(OAc)2 in an acidic media such as trifluoroacetic acid, can afford carbolines 7. This is illustrated in Scheme 10.



[0180] Alkoxy-substituted triazoles 32 can be prepared as illustrated in Scheme 11. Aldehyde 27 can be converted to acetal 29 by treatment with alcohol 28 (where Alk is a C1-C6 alkyl or C3-C6 cycloalkyl optionally substituted with deuterium) in the presence of acid or a dehydrating agent such as CaCl2. Acetal 29 can be converted to alkoxy-substituted alkynes 30 by treatment with a strong base such as lithium diethylamide or sodium amide. Compounds 30 can be converted to triazoles 32 through a copper-catalyzed 3+2 cycoaddition reaction with azide 31. Triazoles 32 can be directly coupled to carbolines as illustrated in Scheme 7. In most cases, said coupling results in loss of the trimethylsilyl group. In cases where the trimethylsilyl group is not lost, it can be removed by treatment with tetrabutylammonium fluoride.



[0181] Alkyl-substituted triazoles 39 can be prepared as illustrated in Scheme 12. Acetylene 33 can be alkylated with 34 (where Alk is a C1-C6 alkyl or C3-C6 cycloalkyl optionally substituted with deuterium and where L is an appropriate leaving group such as iodide, bromide, chloride, or sulfonate) by the action of a strong base such as n-BuLi. Alkyne 35 can be converted to triazoles 36 through a copper-catalyzed 3+2 cycoaddition reaction with 31. Triazoles 36 can be directly coupled to carbolines as illustrated in Scheme 7. Alternately, the trimethylsilyl group of 36 can be removed directly by the action of tetrabutyl ammonium fluoride to give N-methyl-triazole 37. Deprotonation of 37 with a strong base such as n-BuLi, followed by reaction with an appropriate electrophile 38 (where L is a leaving group such as a halide or alkoxide and M is an appropriate group to facilitate metal-mediated couplings such as tributyltin or a boronic ester; e.g. M-L = Bu3SnCl or B(OMe)3) can afford triazoles 39 which can readily be coupled as illustrated in Schemes 1, 3, 4, 8, and 10.



[0182] One can vary the substituents of the triazole as shown in Scheme 13. The leaving group of 34 (where Alk is a C1-C6 alkyl or C3-C6 cycloalkyl optionally substituted with deuterium and where L is an appropriate leaving group such as iodide, bromide, chloride, or sulfonate) can be displaced by treatment with sodium azide to afford 40. Alkynes 41 or 42 can be coupled to azides 40 to give triazoles 43 through a copper-catalyzed 3+2 cycoaddition reaction. Triazoles 43 can be directly coupled to carbolines as illustrated in Scheme 7. Alternately, deprotonation of 43 with a strong base such as n-BuLi, followed by reaction with an appropriate electrophile 38 (where L is a leaving group such as a halide or alkoxide and M is an appropriate group to facilitate metal-mediated couplings such as tributyltin or a boronic ester; e.g. M-L = Bu3SnCl or B(OMe)3) can afford triazoles 44 which can readily be coupled as illustrated in Schemes 1, 3, 4, 8, and 10.

[0185] 


Step 1: 2-Chloro-5-(3,5-dimethylisoxazol-4-yl)pyridin-3-amine



[0186] To a 500 mL round bottom flask containing 5-bromo-2-chloropyridin-3-amine (Matrix, 4.0 g, 19.3 mmol) and (3,5-dimethylisoxazol-4-yl)boronic acid (AOBChem, 3.26 g, 23.1 mmol) in THF (150 mL) was added tripotassium phosphate (2M aq., 28.9 mL, 57.8 mmol) to give a yellow suspension. Pd(dppf)Cl2-CH2Cl2 (1.58 g, 1.93 mmol) was then added and N2 was bubbled into the mixture for 4 min. The resulting reaction mixture was heated at 80 °C for 1 h, concentrated and then diluted with 10% LiCl solution and extracted with CH2Cl2. The organic layer was concentrated and filtered through Celite®. The mother liquor was purified using ISCO silica gel chromatography (220 g column, gradient from 0% to 50% EtOAc/CH2Cl2). Trituration with cold Et2O gave the title compound (3.14 g, 73%) as a pale orange solid. 1H NMR (400 MHz, CDCl3) δ 7.71 (d, J=2.1 Hz, 1H), 6.92 (d, J=2.1 Hz, 1H), 4.20 (br. s., 2H), 2.42 (s, 3H), 2.27 (s, 3H); LCMS (M+H) = 224.1. HPLC RT = 1.39 min (Column: Chromolith ODS S5 4.6 x 50 mm; Mobile Phase A: 10:90 MeOH:water with 0.1% TFA; Mobile Phase B: 90:10 MeOH:water with 0.1% TFA; Temperature: 40 °C; Gradient: 0-100% B over 4 min; Flow: 4 mL/min).

[0187] To a 250 mL round bottom flask containing 2-chloro-5-(3,5-dimethylisoxazol-4-yl)pyridin-3-amine (2.0 g, 8.9 mmol), (3-(methoxycarbonyl)phenyl)boronic acid (Aldrich, 3.22 g, 17.9 mmol), Cu(OAc)2 (2.43 g, 13.4 mmol) and powdered 4Å molecular sieves (7.0 g) was added CHCl3 (50 mL) and pyridine (1.45 mL, 17.9 mL). The atmosphere was exchanged with O2, and the reaction was stirred under an O2 balloon for 6 h. Additional (3-(methoxycarbonyl)phenyl)boronic acid (3.22 g, 17.9 mmol), pyridine (1.45 mL, 17.9 mmol) and 4Å molecular sieves (1.7 g) were added. The reaction mixture was stirred at room temperature overnight. Additional (3-(methoxycarbonyl)phenyl)boronic acid (3.22 g, 17.9 mmol), pyridine (1.45 mL, 17.9 mmol) and Cu(OAc)2 (400 mg) were added to the reaction. After stirring at room temperature for 7 h, the reaction mixture was filtered through Celite® rinsing with CHCl3. The filtrate was diluted with water and ammonium hydroxide (18.6 mL, 143 mmol) was added. The aqueous layer was extracted with CHCl3 and the combined organic layers were washed with 10% LiCl. The organic layer was concentrated and purified by silica gel chromatography (220 g column, gradient from 0% to 50%EtOAc/CH2Cl2). The fractions were concentrated in vacuo until a white precipitate formed which collected via filtration and rinsed with EtOAc to give the title compound (1.33 g, 57%) as a white solid. 1H NMR (400 MHz, CDCl3) δ 7.94 (t, J=1.8 Hz, 1H), 7.85 (d, J=2.1 Hz, 1H), 7.82 (dt, J=7.7, 1.3 Hz, 1H), 7.48 (t, J=7.9 Hz, 1H), 7.40 (d, J=2.1 Hz, 1H), 7.36 (ddd, J=8.0, 2.3, 1.0 Hz, 1H), 6.32 (s, 1H), 3.94 (s, 3H), 2.45 (s, 3H), 2.29 (s, 3H); LCMS (M+H) = 358.2; HPLC RT = 2.70 min (Column: Chromolith ODS S5 4.6 x 50 mm; Mobile Phase A: 10:90 MeOH:water with 0.1% TFA; Mobile Phase B: 90:10 MeOH:water with 0.1% TFA; Temperature: 40 °C; Gradient: 0-100% B over 4 min; Flow: 4 mL/min).

N2 was bubbled through the reaction mixture for 1 min. The vial was capped and heated at 180 °C for 15-30 min. The reaction mixture was then concentrated and purified directly using ISCO silica gel chromatography (40 g column, gradient from 0% to 100% EtOAc/CH2Cl2). The resulting orange oil was dissolved in EtOAc (7 mL) and stirred at room temperature overnight. The resulting yellow precipitate was collected via filtration and washed with EtOAc. The mother liquor was concentrated and repurified using ISCO silica gel chromatography (40 g column, gradient from 0% to 50% EtOAc/CH2Cl2). After trituration with cold EtOAc, the solids were combined to give the title compound (301 mg, 65%). HPLC RT = 2.01 min (Column: Chromolith ODS S5 4.6 x 50 mm; Mobile Phase A: 10:90 MeOH:water with 0.1% TFA; Mobile Phase B: 90:10 MeOH:water with 0.1% TFA; Temperature: 40 °C; Gradient: 0-100% B over 4 min; Flow: 4 mL/min).

The resulting suspension was stirred at room temperature overnight and then concentrated. The residue was purified using ISCO silica gel chromatography (40 g column, gradient from 0% to 50% EtOAc/CH2Cl2) to give the title compound (139 mg) as an impure mixture which was carried on to the subsequent step without further purification. LCMS (M+H) = 496.2; HPLC RT = 3.06 min (Column: Chromolith ODS S5 4.6 x 50 mm; Mobile Phase A: 10:90 MeOH:water with 0.1% TFA; Mobile Phase B: 90:10 MeOH:water with 0.1% TFA; Temperature: 40 °C; Gradient: 0-100% B over 4 min; Flow: 4 mL/min).

Step 5: 2-[3-(Dimethyl-1,2-oxazol-4-yl)-5-[oxan-4-yl(phenyl)methyl]-5H-pyrido[3,2-b]indol-7-yl]propan-2-ol



[0190] A 250 mL round bottom flask containing methyl 3-(3,5-dimethylisoxazol-4-yl)-5-(phenyl(tetrahydro-2H-pyran-4-yl)methyl)-5H-pyrido[3,2-b]indole-7-carboxylate (1.58 g, 3.19 mmol) in CH2Cl2 (50 mL) was cooled in an ice/MeOH bath. MeMgBr, (3M in Et2O, 17.0 mL, 51.0 mmol) was added slowly over 2 min. The resulting suspension was stirred for 2.5 h and then quenched carefully with sat. NH4Cl. Ice was added to the reaction mixture followed by 10% LiCl solution. The aqueous layer was extracted with CH2Cl2 (2x). The organic layer was dried over MgSO4, filtered and concentrated to give racemic 2-[3-(dimethyl-1,2-oxazol-4-yl)-5-[oxan-4-yl(phenyl)methyl]-5H-pyrido[3,2-b]indol-7-yl]propan-2-ol, which was separated using chiral prep SFC (Column: Chiral OD-H 25 x 3 cm, 5 µm; Mobile Phase: 70/30 CO2/MeOH; Flow: 85 mL/min). The faster eluting peak was concentrated to a small volume. Water was added to form a white precipitate which was collected via filtration, rinsing with water, to give a white solid which was assigned as Enantiomer A (0.59 g, 36%).
