Description

FIELD OF THE INVENTION



[0001] The present invention relates to isoquinoline analogues and their use as inhibitors of replication of the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), pharmaceutical compositions containing such analogues, and the use of those compounds in a method for the treatment and prevention of RSV infection.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION



[0002] Globally, the annual death rate from RSV is estimated at more than 160,000 and the clinical burden of RSV infection is comparable to that of influenza (Bourgeois et al., 2009; Boyce et al., 2000; Hall et al., 2009; Stockman et al., 2012). The epidemic season for RSV runs from late fall through early spring. The primary populations at risk for poor outcome are children below 5 years of age, immunocompromised patients and older adults, particularly those who are institutionalized or have chronic underlying disease (Hall et al., 2009; Falsey et al., 2005). There is generally no available therapy for RSV infection, except for supportive care. Inhaled ribavirin is approved for the treatment of laboratory-diagnosed RSV infection but is administered only to some bone marrow transplant and immunocompromised patients, because of its limited effectiveness, complexity of administration and mutagenicity potential for patients and staff. Because of the absence of effective therapy for RSV infections and the significance of RSV morbidity and/or morality in at-risk populations, the introduction of an effective RSV agent will be considered a major breakthrough in the care of these patients.

[0003] The review by Najarro et al., "The prophylaxis and treatment with antiviral agents of respiratory syncytial virus infections" (Antiviral Chemistry and Chemotherapy, 2012, 22 (4), pages 139-150) considers recent advances in the discovery and development of antiviral agents for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections and provides background information on the various manifestations of human RSV infection and current treatments as well as the technical, clinical and commercial issues surrounding the development of such antiviral agents. Patent application WO2015/065338 discloses quinazolin analogs and WO2015/065336 discloses quinazolinone analogs and their use as inhibitors of replication of RSV.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS


DEFINITIONS



[0017] Terms not specifically defined herein should be given the meanings that would be given to them by one of skill in the art in light of the disclosure and the context. As used in the specification, however, unless specified to the contrary, the following terms have the meaning indicated and the following conventions are adhered to. In the groups, radicals, or moieties defined below, the number of carbon atoms is often specified preceding the group, for example, C1-C6alkyl means an alkyl group or radical having 1 to 6 carbon atoms. In general, for groups comprising two or more subgroups, the last named subgroup is the radical attachment point. For example, the substituent "arylC1-C3-alkyl" means an aryl group which is bound to a C1-C3alkyl group, with the C1-C3alkyl group bound to the core.

[0018] The symbol "-" in front of the definition of a radical indicates the radical's point of attachment to the core. For example, the notation "-C(=O)NHC1-C6alkyl" represents a primary amide which is linked to the core via the carbonyl carbon, "-C(=O)OC1-C6alkyl" indicates an ester linked to the core via the carbonyl carbon, -NHC(=O)C1-C6alkyl represents a primary amide linked via the nitrogen atom and "-OC(=O)C1-C6alkyl" indicates an ester linked to the core via the oxygen atom.

[0019] In case a compound of the present invention is depicted in the form of a chemical name and as a formula in case of any discrepancy the formula shall prevail. The designation, ---- , may be used in partial formulas to indicate the bond which is connected to the core molecule as defined.

[0020] Unless specifically indicated, throughout the specification and the appended claims, a given chemical formula or name shall encompass tautomers and all stereo, optical and geometrical isomers (e.g. enantiomers, diastereomers, E/Z isomers, atropisomers) and racemates thereof as well as mixtures in different proportions of the separate enantiomers, mixtures of diastereomers, or mixtures of any of the foregoing forms where such isomers and enantiomers exist, as well as salts, including pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof and solvates thereof such as for instance hydrates including solvates of the free compounds or solvates of a salt of the compound.

[0021] One skilled in the art would know how to separate, enrich, or selectively prepare the enantiomers of the compounds of the present invention. Preparation of pure stereoisomers, e.g. enantiomers and diastereomers, or mixtures of desired enantiomeric excess (ee) or enantiomeric purity, are accomplished by one or more of the many methods of (a) separation or resolution of enantiomers, or (b) enantioselective synthesis known to those of skill in the art, or a combination thereof. These resolution methods generally rely on chiral recognition and include but not limited to chromatography using chiral stationary phases, enantioselective host-guest complexation, resolution or synthesis using chiral auxiliaries, enantioselective synthesis, enzymatic and nonenzymatic kinetic resolution, or spontaneous enantioselective crystallization. Such methods are disclosed generally in Chiral Separation Techniques: A Practical Approach (2nd Ed.), G. Subramanian (ed.), Wiley-VCH, 2000; T.E. Beesley and R.P.W.

GENERAL SYNTHETIC METHODS



[0118] Compounds of the present invention may be prepared by a variety of methods e.g. as depicted in the illustrative synthetic schemes shown and described below. The starting materials and reagents used are available from commercial suppliers or can be prepared according to literature procedures set forth in references using methods well known to those skilled in the art.

[0119] For simplicity, in the general synthesis schemes below the following designation will be used:



[0120] The compounds of the invention are typically obtained by coupling of a chloromethyl or bromomethyl of the isoquinoline moiety (isoquinoline-bb) with an R1 building block (R1-bb). The coupling step is typically performed under basic conditions using a base like cesium carbonate, sodium hydride or potassium tert.butoxide or similar in an organic solvent like DMF or acetonitrile or the like. The strategy is generally depicted in Scheme 1.



[0121] The substituents to the core structure are introduced on the isoquinoline and R1 building blocks prior to coupling or they can be introduced after the coupling step. Alternatively, precursors to the final substituents may be present on the building blocks and transformed to the desired substituents at a later stage of synthesis of final compounds.

[0122] A suitable isoquinoline building block useful for the preparation of compounds of the invention is 4-bromo-3-(bromomethyl)isoquinoline. The building block is commercially available or can be prepared as outlined in Scheme 2.



[0123] Bromination of commercially available 3-methylisoquinoline effected by treatment with hydrobromic acid and bromine using e.g. the procedures as described in J.Org. Chem., 1991, 56(8), 2805-2809, provides bromo derivative (2A), followed by benzylic bromination effected by treatment with N-bromosuccinimide and carbon tetrachloride provides the desired building block (2B).

[0124] An alternative approach to a halo substituted isoquinoline building block is illustrated in Scheme 3.



[0125] Reaction of optionally substituted benzaldehyde with prop-2-yn-1-ol which may be hydroxy protected, in a cross-coupling reaction under Sonogashira conditions, i.e. using a Pd catalyst such as bis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II) chloride or equivalent and a copper halide such as copper iodide or the like, in the presence of a base such as triethylamine or similar, provides the acetylene derivative (3A). Reaction with tert. butylamine in the presence of magnesium sulfate or similar followed by iodine, and optionally hydroxy deprotection, provides isoquinoline derivative (3B). The benzylic hydroxy group can then be transformed to a suitable leaving group such as chloro or bromo. Typically, the chloro derivative (3C) is achieved by treatment of the alcohol with phosgene, whereas the bromo derivative (3D) is typically achieved by treatment of the alcohol with carbon tetrachloride in the presence of triphenylphosphine. Alternatively, the iodo derivative (3B) may be further reacted to introduce a desired R2 substituent or suitable precursor thereof.

[0126] Compounds of the invention wherein R2 is optionally substituted aryl or heteroaryl are conveniently prepared using an isoquinoline moiety carrying the desired R2 group in the coupling with the R1-building block. Such isoquinolines can be prepared for instance by a palladium catalysed cross coupling reaction as illustrated in Scheme 4.



[0127] Reaction of halo substituted isoquinoline (4A) and the boronic acid (4B) of the desired aryl or heteroaryl using a catalyst like bis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(II) chloride or equivalent in the presence of a base such as potassium carbonate or similar provides biaryl derivative (4C). Transformation of the benzylic hydroxy group to a chloride or bromide using conditions as described above, provides the desired isoquinoline derivative (4D) ready for coupling with an R1 building block.

[0128] Isoquinolines wherein R2 is alkyl or substituted alkyl are obtained e.g. by reaction of an isoquinolinylhalide and a desired olefin under Heck coupling conditions, followed by reduction of the double bond, as shown in Scheme 5.



[0129] Alternatively, isoquinoline building block (5C) can be obtained by hydroboration of olefin (5B) using 9-BBN or similar followed by a Suzuki coupling of the afforded borate, i.e. with a palladium catalyst in the presence of triphenylphosphine or similar and a base such as triethylamine or potassium carbonate or the like.

[0130] A further alternative route to isoquinolines useful for the preparation of compounds of the invention wherein R2 is alkyl or substituted alkyl using optionally substituted benzaldehyde as starting material is illustrated in Scheme 6.



[0131] Reaction of imine (6A), prepared from optionally substituted benzaldehyde by reaction with tert.butylamine, with a suitably hydroxy protected acetylene derivative in a cross-coupling reaction using a catalyst like dibromobis(triphenylphosphine)nickel(II) or equivalent provides quinoline derivative (6B). Removal of the hydroxy protecting group, using the appropriate conditions for the protecting group used, e.g. by treatment with acid in the case of a THP group, followed by halogenation as described above, provides the isoquinoline (6D) ready for coupling with a desired R1 building block. In the case R in compound 6D is hydroxy, the hydroxy groups of the acetylene diol used in the coupling with compound 6A are suitably protected. Preferably in this case with orthogonal protecting groups in order to enable selective deprotection, for example a silyl group e.g. TBDMS, and an acetal group such as tetrahydropyranyl group may be used.

[0132] In a similar way, isoquinolines carrying a direct linked optionally substituted cycloalkyl or heterocycloalkyl can be prepared using the substituted acetylene derivative, as illustrated in Scheme 7.



[0133] R1 building blocks can be prepared according to literature procedures or as disclosed herein below. For example, WO2003/053344 and WO2013/186335 disclose the preparation of R1 building blocks wherein Z1 is N, Z2 is CH and Z3 is CH or N. In J. Org. Chem. 60 (1995) 1565-1582, methods for the preparation of R1' building block wherein q is 0, Z1 is N, are disclosed. Spirocyclic R1 building blocks, i.e. wherein Z1 is CR1BR1B and the two R1B together with the carbon atom to which they are attached form C3-C6cycloalkyl or a 4-6 membered heterocyclyl are disclosed in e.g. WO2014/060411 and WO2015/022301. R1 building blocks wherein Z2 is CH and Z3 is CH or N can be prepared according to procedures described in e.g. WO2014/009302 or in Tetrahedron 70(2014) 8413-8418.

[0134] For example, R1 building blocks wherein Z1 is CR1BR1B and the two R1B together with the carbon atom to which they are attached form a 4 to 6 membered heterocyclyl can be prepared as illustrated in Scheme 8.



[0135] Coupling of the desired amino derivative (8A) and acid (8B) under peptide coupling conditions such as in the presence of coupling agent like HATU, EDC or similar in the presence of an amine like DIEA or the like provides the amide (7c). Protection of the amide nitrogen with for instance a p-methoxy benzyl group which can be introduced by reaction with p-methoxy benzyl chloride in the presence of a base like potassium carbonate or similar, followed by a palladium catalysed ring closure using for instance palladium acetate and tricyclohexylphosphine or similar and a base such as sodium tert.butoxide or the like, provides the bicycle (8E). Removal of the two N-protecting groups using the appropriate conditions according to the protecting group used, such as acidic treatment in the case of Boc and p-methoxybenzyl provides the unprotected spirobicycle (8F). The afforded amine can then be transferred to an amide (8G) by reaction with an acid R1CC(=O)OH under peptide coupling conditions, or with an acid chloride R1CC(=O)Cl, or to a carbamate (8H) by reaction with a chloroformate R1COC(=O)Cl or anhydride R1COC(=O)OC(=O)R1C or similar. Reaction of the amine with a sulfonylchloride R1CS(=O)2Cl provides a sulfonamide(3i) whereas reaction with carbonyl diimidazole or phosgene or similar followed by an amine H2NR1CC or HNR1DR1D'C provides a urea (8J) or (8K) respectively.

[0136] A route to R1 building block useful for the preparation of compounds of formula I wherein Z1 is NR1A and R1A is a 4 to 6 membered cyclic amine is depicted in Scheme 9.



[0137] Reaction of nitro substituted aryl halide (9A) in a substitution reaction with a suitably protected heterocyclyl amine (9B) using conditions like in the presence of a base such as diisopropylethylamine or similar in a solvent like DMF and typically at an elevated temperature, provides the substituted aniline derivative (9C). Reduction of the nitro group effected for instance by catalytic hydrogenation using a catalyst like palladium on carbon in a solvent like MeOH or EtOH or the like or similar conditions provides the aniline (9D). Ring formation is then performed by reaction with carbonyl diimidazole or phosgene or triphosgene in the presence of a base like triethylamine or similar, thus providing the bicyclic compound (9E).

[0138] Similarly, compounds of the invention wherein Z1 is NR1A and R1A is optionally substituted C3-C7cycloalkyl can be prepared in a similar manner, using the desired substituted cycloalkylamine in the coupling with the aryl halide 9A. A route to this building block is illustrated in Scheme 10.



[0139] Routes to compounds of the invention wherein Z1 is NR1A and R1A is a cyclic amine which is substituted on the nitrogen atom are generally depicted in Scheme 11.



[0140] Coupling of the quinoline derivative (11A) with a suitably N-protected R1-building block effected by treatment with Cs2CO3 as described above, followed by removal of the N-protecting group, provides compound (11B), ready for substitution of the cyclic amine with a desired group. For example, the amine can be reacted with an acid R1CC(=O)OH under peptide coupling conditions or with an acid chloride R1CC(=O)Cl thus providing an amide (11C). Reaction with a sulfonylchloride R1CS(=O)2Cl provides a sulfonamide (11D), whereas
reaction with a chloroformate R1CC(=O)Cl or anhydride R1CC(=O)OC(=O)R1C or similar, provides a carbamate (11E). Reaction with carbonyl diimidazole or phosgene or similar followed by reaction with an amine H2NR1C or HNR1DR1D'C provides urea (11F) or (11G) respectively.

[0141] A route to compounds of formula I wherein n is ≥1 and R3 is amino substituted C3-C6cycloalkyl or 4 to 6 membered heterocyclyl is generally illustrated in Scheme 12.



[0142] Lithiation of optionally substituted halo substituted isoquinoline (12A) using n-BuLi or tert.BuLi followed by reaction with a sulfinamide derivative of the desired cycloalkyl or heterocyclyl provides the amide (12B). The desired R1 building block is then introduced as described above, i.e. removal of the hydroxy protecting group, conversion of the thus liberated hydroxy group to bromo or chloro using e.g. CBr4 or phosgene respectively as described above provides isoquinoline derivative (12C) and finally coupling of the desired R1 building block.

Example A: RSV cytopathic effect



[0730] Compounds of the invention are initially tested in a cytopathic effect (CPE)-based viral replication assay using immortalized cells and a laboratory strain of RSV (Long). This assay evaluates the ability of a compound to inhibit viral replication.

Procedure:



[0731] Assay plates are prepared by seeding 2,500 HEp-2 cells (ATCC) per well of a 384-well black clear-bottom plate (Greiner Bio-One) in 20 µL of assay media (defined as DMEM supplemented with 2% heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum and 1% Penicillin/Streptomycin). Assay plates are incubated overnight at 37°C in an incubator containing 5% CO2. The following day, a 10-point serial dilution of test compound is prepared in DMSO. Compounds are subsequently diluted with assay media and 20 µL of diluted compound (containing 1.5% DMSO) is transferred to an assay plate for evaluation of antiviral activity.

[0732] For the CPE assay, cells are infected at a Multiplicity of Infection (MOI) of 0.015 using 20 µL of RSV Long (ATCC) diluted in assay media. The DMSO concentration is constant throughout the assay plate, including the negative and positive controls. The assay plate is incubated for 3 days at 37°C in an incubator containing 5% CO2. Cell viability is evaluated with the addition of 10 µL of CellTiter-Glo (ProMega). Luminescence is measured using an EnVision plate reader (Perkin Elmer). EC50 values are calculated using the raw data from the CPE assays.

[0733] The compounds of the invention were tested in the assay described in Example A, the results are as shown in the TABLE 3.
