(54)SULFONAMIDE DERIVATIVE AND PHARMACEUTICALLY ACCEPTABLE ACID ADDITION SALT THEREOF


(57) The present invention aims to provide a novel low-molecular-weight compound exhibiting an orexin receptor agonist activity and expected to be useful as a prophylactic or therapeutic agent for narcolepsy and the like. The present invention provides a compound represented by the formula (I):

wherein each symbol is as defined in the description, or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof, which has an orexin receptor agonist activity, and an orexin receptor agonist containing the compound or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof.


Description

Technical Field



[0001] The present invention aims to provide a novel compound useful as an excellent orexin receptor agonist.

Background Art



[0002] Narcolepsy is a sleeping disorder caused by the inability of the brain to control the sleep-wake cycle. The major symptoms of narcolepsy includes, for example, excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy induced by emotion (particularly strong joy and surprise), hypnagogic hallucination, and hypnagogic paralysis, and narcolepsy patients are under serious influence in general social life. The prevalence of narcolepsy is assumed to be 0.05 - 0.2% (0.16 - 0.18% in Japan), and the prevalence indicates that the disease is not rare.

[0003] The therapy of narcolepsy mainly includes a drug therapy and life guidance. For drug therapy, methylphenidate, modafinil and pemoline are used to suppress daytime sleepiness, and tricyclic antidepressant, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), and serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) are used to control cataplexy. While these treatment methods are symptomatic therapy of narcolepsy, they are not basic treatment methods.

[0004] In recent years, the relationship between narcolepsy and orexin system dysfunction is attracting attention. Orexins are neuropeptides present in the lateral hypothalamic area, which are two kinds of peptide of orexin-A and orexin-B (hypocretin 1, hypocretin 2 (non-patent document 1)). They bind to orexin 1 receptor (hereinafter to be also referred to as OX1R) and orexin 2 receptor (hereinafter to be also referred to as OX2R), which are G-protein coupled receptors (non-patent document 2). It was suggested from model experiments using mouse and dog that lack of orexin receptor (both OX1R and OX2R are expressed), or lack of OX2R causes narcolepsy (non-patent document 3). Furthermore, it was suggested from model experiments using mouse that the function of OX2R is important for maintaining wakefulness (non-patent document 4, non-patent document 5).

[0005] On the other hand, many narcolepsy patients were confirmed to show disappearance of orexin nerves, and decreased orexin concentration (non-patent document 6). Therefore, it is strongly suggested that narcolepsy is highly possibly caused by the lack of orexin.

[0006] The orexin receptor is widely expressed in the brain. Orexins are peptides, and are not useful for pharmaceutical use since permeability through the blood-brain barrier is extremely low. Therefore, a low-molecular-weight orexin receptor agonist has been desired. In recent years, a compound with a cyclic guanidine skeleton is reported as a small-molecule OX2R agonist (patent document 1).

[0007] In addition, orexin system is considered to not only control the above-mentioned sleep-wake but also appropriately control feeding behavior with emotion and energy balance. A mouse under fasting increases the amount of behavior for searching food by increasing the waking time and decreasing the sleep hours. On the other hand, it was clarified that the waking time and the amount of behavior do not increase in orexin receptor-deficient mouse (non-patent document 7). Moreover, it was suggested that an increase of the leptin sensitivity by OX2R regulates the homeostasis of body weight (non-patent document 8). From these findings, an orexin receptor (particularly OX2R) agonist is a potential therapeutic drug for not only narcolepsy but also diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome.

[0008] Furthermore, it has been reported that sepsis rats show a decrease in the spontaneous activity and a decrease in the activity of the orexin-containing neurons in the perifornical areas of hypothalamus (non-patent document 9). There is a report that intraventricular administration of orexin to a mouse sepsis model led to an increase in the body temperature and recovery of cardiac function (non-patent document 10). From these, it is possible that an orexin receptor agonist may become a therapeutic drug for sepsis.

[0231] 



[0232] Under an argon atmosphere, to a suspension of 3'-(N-(3-aminophenyl)sulfamoyl)-4'-methoxy-N,N-dimethyl-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-carboxamide hydrochloride (10.0 mg) in dichloromethane (215 µL) were added TEA (3.0 µL), acetic acid (5.0 µL) and benzaldehyde (2.25 µL), and the mixture was stirred at room temperature for 3.5 hr. Thereto was added sodium triacetoxyborohydride (10 mg), and the mixture was stirred for 14 hr. The reaction mixture was diluted with ethyl acetate, and extracted with 1 M aqueous hydrochloric acid solution. The organic layer was washed with saturated aqueous sodium hydrogen carbonate solution and saturated brine, dried over sodium sulfate and filtered, and the filtrate was concentrated under reduced pressure. The obtained residue was purified by silica gel column chromatography (eluent: ethyl acetate/hexane=0/1→20/1) to give 3'-(N-(3-(benzylamino)phenyl)sulfamoyl)-4'-methoxy-N,N-dimethyl-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-carboxamide (21.8 mg).

[0233]  The compounds described in the following Table 3 were also synthesized similarly from aldehyde having the corresponding R group.

[0239] 



[0240] Under an argon atmosphere, to a suspension of 3'-(N-(3-aminophenyl)sulfamoyl)-4'-methoxy-N,N-dimethyl-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-carboxamide hydrochloride (12.0 mg) in dichloromethane (4.0 mL) were added TEA (10.0 µL) and phenyl isocyanate (10.0 µL), and the mixture was stirred at room temperature for 20 hr. The reaction mixture was diluted with 20% methanol-containing chloroform, and extracted with saturated aqueous ammonium chloride solution. The organic layer was washed with saturated brine, dried over sodium sulfate and filtered, and the filtrate was concentrated under reduced pressure. The obtained residue was purified by preparative thin layer chromatography (eluent: chloroform/methanol=10/1) to give 4'-methoxy-N,N-dimethyl-3'-(N-(3-(3-phenylureido)phenyl)sulfamoyl)-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-carboxamide (3.9 mg).

[0241] The compounds described in the following Tables 5 - 8 were also synthesized similarly from isocyanate having the corresponding R group, isocyanate developed from carboxylic acid having R group or chloroformic acid ester.

(1) 4'-methoxy-N,N-dimethyl-3'-(N-(3-(3-phenylthioureido)phenyl)sulfamoyl)-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-carboxamide



[0243] 



[0244] Under an argon atmosphere, to a solution of 3'-(N-(3-aminophenyl)sulfamoyl)-4'-methoxy-N,N-dimethyl-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-carboxamide hydrochloride (16.5 mg) in anhydrous benzene (3.0 mL) were added TEA (30.0 µL) and phenyl isothiocyanate (30.0 mg), and the mixture was stirred under reflux at 110°C for 12 hr. The reaction mixture was diluted with 20% methanol-containing chloroform, and extracted with saturated aqueous ammonium chloride solution. The organic layer was washed with saturated aqueous sodium hydrogen carbonate solution and saturated brine, dried over sodium sulfate and filtered, and the filtrate was concentrated under reduced pressure. The obtained residue was purified by preparative thin layer chromatography (eluent: chloroform/methanol=10/1) to give 4'-methoxy-N,N-dimethyl-3'-(N-(3-(3-phenylthioureido)phenyl)sulfamoyl)-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-carboxamide (7.1 mg).

[0245] The compounds described in the following Table 9 were also synthesized similarly from isothiocyanate having the corresponding R group.

Experimental Example 1


Evaluation of agonist activity against OX1R and OX2R



[0368] NAFT-luciferase gene and human OX1R gene were constitutively expressed in CHO cell, which is a cell line derived from Chinese hamster ovary to establish a cell line (CHOOX1R) and NAFT-luciferase gene and human OX2R gene were constitutively expressed in CHO cell to establish a cell line (CHOOX2R). The respective cells were seeded in a 96-well Multiplate at 10,000 cells/well and cultured in a 5% FBS (Thermo Scientific)-added DMEM medium (Sigma-Aldrich) for 48 hr. The medium was removed, an assay buffer (20 mM HEPES (Sigma-Aldrich), Hanks' balanced salt solution (Gibco), 0.1% BSA(Sigma-Aldrich), 2.5 mM probenecid acid (Wako Pure Chemical Industries, Ltd.)) (100 µL) containing 5 µM Fura-2AM (Cayman Chemical) was added, and the cells were incubated for 60 min. The buffer containing Fura-2AM was removed, and an assay buffer (75 µL) was added. An assay buffer (25 µL) containing a test compound was added thereto to start the reaction. Changes in the intracellular calcium ion concentration due to the reaction were measured by measuring the fluorescence intensity ratio by dual wavelength excitation at 340 and 380 nm, by using FDSS7000 (Hamamatsu Photonics K.K.). The test compound was dissolved in DMSO to 10 mM, and diluted with the assay buffer to a final concentration of 10-7M to 10-5M (final concentration of DMSO 1%). The agonist activity values of the respective compounds are shown in Table 21 - Table 27.

[0369] (As used herein, Response in Table 21 to Table 27 is a value obtained by dividing the agonist activity value, when the test compound is evaluated with orexin-A as a full-agonist (maximum value of agonist activity: 100%), at 10 µM, 1.0 µM, 0.1 µM by the agonist activity value of orexin-A.)

Experimental Example 2


Awakening effect on wild-type mouse by light period intraventricular administration of the compound of the present invention



[0370] As the experiment animal, C57BL/6 lineage wild-type mouse (male) was used. The mice before and after 9-week-old (± 1 week) underwent surgery for embedding electroencephalogram electrodes into the skull (Bregma: X=1.5; Y=0.6, Lambda: X=1.5; Y=0) and inserting electromyogram electrodes into the trapezius muscle under isoflurane anesthesia. The mice for intraventricular administration also underwent cannula embedding into lateral cerebral ventricle (Bregma: X=-0.9; Y=-0.3). From two weeks thereafter, the administration and electroencephalogram measurement were started. The experiment was conducted under a light-dark cycle environment in which the light period started at 9 (ZT0) and the dark period started at 21 (ZT12).

[0371] The test compound (compound of Example 40) (10 nmol; dissolved in 5% chromophore-containing saline) (5 µl) was injected at ZT6 into the lateral cerebral ventricle of wild-type mice under isoflurane anesthesia through cannula by using a microsyringe pump at a flow rate of 0.5 µl/min, and electroencephalogram and electromyogram was measured thereafter. The administration was started with 5% chromophore-containing saline (Vehicle) as a control, and then the test compound was administered. In each case, one day after the administration was set as a recovery period. The results are shown in Fig. 1.

[0372] When the test compound was intraventricularly administered in the light period (ZT6), which is a sleep period for mouse, the conscious time increased in the wild-type mouse as compared to the Vehicle administration.

Industrial Applicability



[0373] The compound of the present invention shows an orexin receptor agonist activity, and is useful as a prophylactic or therapeutic agent for narcolepsy and the like.

[0374] This application is based on a patent application No. 2015-119785 filed in Japan (filing date: June 12, 2015), the entire contents of which are incorporated by reference herein.
