    Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION



    [0001] This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application Serial No. 62/151,780 filed April 23, 2015.

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION



    [0002] The invention relates to compounds, compositions, and methods for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. More particularly, the invention provides novel inhibitors of HIV, pharmaceutical compositions containing such compounds, and methods for using these compounds in the treatment of HIV infection. The invention also relates to methods for making the compounds hereinafter described.

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION



    [0003] Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is the result of infection by HIV. It remains a major medical problem, with an estimated 34 million people infected worldwide at the end of 2011, 3.3 million of them under the age of 15. In 2011, there were 2.5 million new infections, and 1.7 million deaths from complications due to HIV/AIDS.

    [0004] Current therapy for HIV-infected individuals consists of a combination of approved anti-retroviral agents. Over two dozen drugs are currently approved for HIV infection, either as single agents or as fixed dose combinations or single tablet regimens, the latter two containing 2-4 approved agents. These agents belong to a number of different classes, targeting either a viral enzyme or the function of a viral protein during the virus replication cycle. Thus, agents are classified as either nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), non-nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs), protease inhibitors (PIs), integrase inhibitors (INIs), or entry inhibitors (one, maraviroc, targets the host CCR5 protein, while the other, enfuvirtide, is a peptide that targets the gp41 region of the viral gp160 protein). In addition, a pharmacokinetic enhancer with no antiviral activity, i.e., cobicistat, available from Gilead Sciences, Inc. under the tradename TYBOST™ (cobicistat) tablets, has recently been approved for use in combinations with certain antiretroviral agents (ARVs) that may benefit from boosting.

    [0005] Despite the armamentarium of agents and drug combinations, there remains a medical need for new anti-retroviral agents, due in part to the need for chronic dosing to combat infection. Significant problems related to long-term toxicities are documented, creating a need to address and prevent these co-morbidities (e.g. CNS, CV/metabolic, renal disease). Also, increasing failure rates on current therapies continue to be a problem, due either to the presence or emergence of resistant strains or to non-compliance attributed to drug holidays or adverse side effects. For example, despite therapy, it has been estimated that 63% of subjects receiving combination therapy remained viremic, as they had viral loads >500 copies/mL (Oette, M, Kaiser, R, Däumer, M, et al. Primary HIV Drug Resistance and Efficacy of First-Line Antiretroviral Therapy Guided by Resistance Testing. J Acq Imm Def Synd 2006; 41(5):573-581). Among these patients, 76% had viruses that were resistant to one or more classes of antiretroviral agents. As a result, new drugs are needed that are easier to take, have high genetic barriers to the development of resistance and have improved safety over current agents. In this panoply of choices, novel MOAs that can be used as part of the preferred highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) regimen can still have a major role to play since they should be effective against viruses resistant to current agents.

    [0006] Certain therapeutic compounds are disclosed in WO 2013/006738, WO 2014/110298, and WO 2014/134566. EP0810208 discloses aminosulfonyl compounds as retroviral protease inhibitors

    [0007] What is now needed in the art are additional compounds which are novel and useful in the treatment of HIV. Additionally, these compounds may desirably provide advantages for pharmaceutical uses, for example, with regard to one or more of their mechanisms of action, binding, inhibition efficacy, target selectivity, solubility, safety profiles, or bioavailability. Also needed are new formulations and methods of treatment which utilize these compounds.

    Pharmaceutical Compositions and Methods of Use



    [0048] The compounds of the invention herein described and set forth are generally given as pharmaceutical compositions. These compositions are comprised of a therapeutically effective amount of a compound of Formula I or its pharmaceutically acceptable salt, and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier and may contain conventional excipients and/or diluents. A therapeutically effective amount is that which is needed to provide a meaningful patient benefit. Pharmaceutically acceptable carriers are those conventionally known carriers having acceptable safety profiles. Compositions encompass all common solid and liquid forms, including capsules, tablets, lozenges, and powders, as well as liquid suspensions, syrups, elixirs, and solutions. Compositions are made using available formulation techniques, and excipients (such as binding and wetting agents) and vehicles (such as water and alcohols) which are generally used for compositions. See, for example, Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences, 17th edition, Mack Publishing Company, Easton, PA (1985).

    [0049] Solid compositions which are normally formulated in dosage units and compositions providing from about 1 to 1000 mg of the active ingredient per dose are preferred. Some examples of dosages are 1 mg, 10 mg, 100 mg, 250 mg, 500 mg, and 1000 mg. Generally, other antiretroviral agents will be present in a unit range similar to agents of that class used clinically. Typically, this is about 0.25-1000 mg/unit.

    [0050] Liquid compositions are usually in dosage unit ranges. Generally, the liquid composition will be in a unit dosage range of about 1-100 mg/mL. Some examples of dosages are 1 mg/mL, 10 mg/mL, 25 mg/mL, 50 mg/mL, and 100 mg/mL. Generally, other antiretroviral agents will be present in a unit range similar to agents of that class used clinically. Typically, this is about 1-100 mg/mL.

    [0051] The invention encompasses all conventional modes of administration; oral and parenteral methods are preferred. Generally, the dosing regimen will be similar to other antiretroviral agents used clinically. Typically, the daily dose will be about 1-100 mg/kg body weight daily. Generally, more compound is required orally and less parenterally. The specific dosing regimen, however, will be determined by a physician using sound medical judgment.

    [0052] The compounds of this invention desireably have activity against HIV. Accordingly, another aspect of the invention is a method for treating HIV infection in a human patient comprising administering a therapeutically effective amount of a compound of Formula I, including a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, with a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier, excipient and/or diluent.

    [0053] The invention also encompasses methods where the compound is given in combination therapy. That is, the compound can be used in conjunction with, but separately from, other agents useful in treating AIDS and HIV infection. The compound can also be used in combination therapy wherein the compound and one or more of the other agents are physically together in a fixed-dose combination (FDC). Some of these agents include HIV attachment inhibitors, CCR5 inhibitors, CXCR4 inhibitors, HIV cell fusion inhibitors, HIV integrase inhibitors, HIV nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, HIV non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, HIV protease inhibitors, budding and maturation inhibitors, immunomodulators, and anti-infectives. In these combination methods, the compound of Formula I will generally be given in a daily dose of about 1-100 mg/kg body weight daily in conjunction with other agents. The other agents generally will be given in the amounts used therapeutically. The specific dosing regimen, however, will be determined by a physician using sound medical judgment.

    [0054] "Combination," "coadministration," "concurrent" and similar terms referring to the administration of a compound of Formula I with at least one anti-HIV agent mean that the components are part of a combination antiretroviral therapy or HAART as understood by practitioners in the field of AIDS and HIV infection.

    [0055] Thus, as set forth above, contemplated herein are combinations of the compounds of Formula I, together with one or more agents useful in the treatment of AIDS. For example, the compounds of the invention may be effectively administered, whether at periods of pre-exposure and/or post-exposure, in combination with effective amounts of the AIDS antivirals, immunomodulators, anti-infectives, or vaccines, such as those in the following non-limiting table:

    Biological Methods



    [0957] HIV cell culture assay - MT-2 cells, 293T cells and the proviral DNA clone of NL4-3 virus were obtained from the NIH AIDS Research and Reference Reagent Program. MT-2 cells were propagated in RPMI 1640 media supplemented with 10% heat inactivated fetal bovine serum (FBS), 100 µg/ml penicillin G and up to 100 units/mL streptomycin. The 293T cells were propagated in DMEM media supplemented with 10% heat inactivated FBS, 100 µg/mL penicillin G and 100 µg/mL streptomycin. A recombinant NL4-3 proviral clone, in which a section of the nef gene was replaced with the Renilla luciferase gene, was used to make the reference virus used in these studies. The recombinant virus was prepared through transfection of the recombinant NL4-3 proviral clone into 293T cells using Transit-293 Transfection Reagent from Mirus Bio LLC (Madison, WI). Supernatent was harvested after 2-3 days and the amount of virus present was titered in MT-2 cells using luciferase enzyme activity as a marker by measuring luciferase enzyme activity. Luciferase was quantitated using the EnduRen Live Cell Substrate from Promega (Madison, WI). Antiviral activities of compounds toward the recombinant virus were quantified by measuring luciferase activity in MT-2 cells infected for 4-5 days with the recombinant virus in the presence of serial dilutions of the compound.

    [0958] The 50% effective concentration (EC50) was calculated by using the exponential form of the median effect equation where (Fa) = 1/[1+ (ED50/drug conc.)m] (Johnson VA, Byington RT. Infectivity Assay. In Techniques in HIV Research. ed. Aldovini A, Walker BD. 71-76. New York: Stockton Press. 1990).

    [0959] Compound cytotoxicity and the corresponding CC50 values were determined using the same protocol as described in the antiviral assay except that uninfected cells were used. Cytotoxicity was assessed on day 4 in uninfected MT2 cells by using a XTT (2,3-bis[2-Methoxy-4-nitro-5-sulfophenyl]-2H-tetrazolium-5-carboxyanilide inner salt)-based colorimetric assay (Sigma-Aldrich, St Louis, Mo).

    [0960] Compounds demonstrate antiviral activity as depicted in Table 1 below. Activity equal to A refers to a compound having an EC50 ≤ 100 nM, while B and C denote compounds having an EC50 between 100 nM and 1µM (B) or >1µM (C).
