Description

Related application reference



[0001] The present application claims priority of the Chinese Patent Application No. CN201610706073.1 filed to National Intellectual Property Administration, PRC on August 22, 2016, the contents of which are incorporated herein by reference in their entireties.

Field of invention



[0002] The present invention relates to a class of phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4) inhibitor and a use thereof in manufacturing a medicament for treating a disease related to PDE4. Specifically related is a compound as shown in formula (I) and a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

Prior arts



[0003] Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) is a cytokine released primarily by mononuclear phagocytes in response to immunostimulators. TNF-α is capable of enhancing most cellular processes, such as differentiation, recruitment, proliferation, and proteolytic degradation. At low levels, TNF-α confers protection against infective agents, tumors, and tissue damage. However, excessive release of TNF-α also cause diseases, when administered to mammals or humans, TNF-α causes or aggravates inflammation, fever, cardiovascular effects, hemorrhage, coagulation, and acute responses similar to those seen during acute infections and shock states. Enhanced or uncontrolled TNF-α production in animals or humans often indicates a number of diseases, for example, endotoxemia and/or toxic shock syndrome, cachexia, adult respiratory distress syndrome, cancers such as solid tumors and hematological tumors, heart disease such as congestive heart failure; viral infection, and genetic, inflammatory, allergic, or autoimmune diseases.

[0004] Cancer is a particularly devastating disease, and the increased TNF-α levels in blood indicates cancer or a risk of cancer spreading. Normally, in healthy subjects, cancer cells fail to survive in the circulatory system, one of the reasons being that the inner wall of blood vessels acts as a barrier to tumor-cell extravasation. ELAM-1 on endothelial cells was shown to mediate the increased adhesion of colon cancer cells to endothelium treated with cytokines.

[0005] Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) also plays a role in many diseases and conditions. It has been shown that the elevation of cAMP in inflammatory leukocytes inhibits their activation and then release inflammatory mediators, including TNF-α and nuclear factor κB (NF-κB). Increased levels of cAMP also lead to the relaxation of airway smooth muscle.

[0006] It is believed that primary cellular mechanism for the inactivation of cAMP is the breakdown of cAMP by a family of isoenzymes referred to as cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDE). There are eleven known members of the family of PDEs. So far it has been recognized that the inhibition of PDE type IV (PDE4) is particularly effective both in inhibition of inflammatory mediators release and relaxation of airway smooth muscle. Therefore, PDE4 has become one of the most popular drug targets. The family of PDE-4 can be divided into four subtypes (PDE-4A, B, C, D) based on different genetic codes, wherein PDE-4A, PDE-4B and PDE-4D are more widely expressed in inflammatory cells (such as B cells, T cells and neutrophils) than PDE-4C. The inhibition of PDE4 leads to an increase in cAMP levels, thereby regulating TNF-α levels for therapeutic purposes.

Definition and description



[0045] Unless otherwise indicated, the following terms when used in the descriptions and the claims of the present invention have the following meanings. A specific term or phrase should not be considered indefinite or unclear in the absence of a particular definition, but should be understood in the ordinary sense. When a trade name appears herein, it is intended to refer to its corresponding commodity or active ingredient thereof. The term "pharmaceutically acceptable" is used herein in terms of those compounds, materials, compositions, and/or dosage forms, which are suitable for use in contact with human and animal tissues within the scope of reliable medical judgment, with no excessive toxicity, irritation, allergic reaction or other problems or complications, commensurate with a reasonable benefit/risk ratio.

[0046] The term "pharmaceutically acceptable salt" refers to a salt of the compound of the present invention that is prepared by reacting the compound having a specific substituent of the present invention with a relatively non-toxic acid or base. When the compound of the present invention contains a relatively acidic functional group, a base addition salt can be obtained by bringing the neutral form of the compound into contact with a sufficient amount of base in a pure solution or a suitable inert solvent. The pharmaceutically acceptable base addition salt includes a salt of sodium, potassium, calcium, ammonium, organic amine or magnesium or similar salts. When the compound of the present invention contains a relatively basic functional group, an acid addition salt can be obtained by bringing the neutral form of the compound into contact with a sufficient amount of acid in a pure solution or a suitable inert solvent. Examples of the pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt include an inorganic acid salt, wherein the inorganic acid includes, for example, hydrochloric acid, hydrobromic acid, nitric acid, carbonic acid, bicarbonate, phosphoric acid, monohydrogen phosphate, dihydrogen phosphate, sulfuric acid, hydrogen sulfate, hydroiodic acid, phosphorous acid, and the like; and an organic acid salt, wherein the organic acid includes, for example, acetic acid, propionic acid, isobutyric acid, maleic acid, malonic acid, benzoic acid, succinic acid, suberic acid, fumaric acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid, phthalic acid, benzenesulfonic acid, p-toluenesulfonic acid, citric acid, tartaric acid, and methanesulfonic acid, and the like; and an salt of amino acid (such as arginine and the like), and a salt of an organic acid such as glucuronic acid and the like (refer to Berge et al., "Pharmaceutical Salts", Journal of Pharmaceutical Science 66: 1-19 (1977)). Certain specific compounds of the present invention that contain both basic and acidic functional groups can be converted to any base or acid addition salt.

[0047] Preferably, through bringing the salt into contact with a base or an acid in a conventional manner, then separating the parent compound, the neutral form of the compound is thereby regenerated. The difference between the parent form of the compound and its various salt forms lies in specific physical properties, such as different solubility in a polar solvent.

[0048] "Pharmaceutically acceptable salt" used herein belongs to a derivative of the compound of the present invention, wherein, the parent compound is modified by forming a salt with an acid or a base. Examples of the pharmaceutically acceptable salt include but are not limited to an inorganic acid or organic acid salt of a basic moiety such as amine, an alkali metal salt or an organic salt of an acidic moiety such as carboxylic acid, and the like. The pharmaceutically acceptable salt includes conventional non-toxic salt or quaternary ammonium salt of the parent compound, such as a salt formed by a non-toxic inorganic acid or an organic acid. The conventional non-toxic salt includes but is not limited to the salt derived from an inorganic acid and an organic acid, wherein the inorganic acid or organic acid is selected from the group consisting of 2-acetoxybenzoic acid, 2-hydroxyethanesulfonic acid, acetic acid, ascorbic acid, benzenesulfonic acid, benzoic acid, bicarbonate, carbonic acid, citric acid, edetic acid, ethanedisulfonic acid, ethanesulfonic acid, fumaric acid, glucoheptose, gluconic acid, glutamic acid, glycolic acid, hydrobromic acid, hydrochloric acid, hydroiodide, hydroxyl, hydroxynaphthalene, isethionic acid, lactic acid, lactose, dodecyl sulfonic acid, maleic acid, malic acid, mandelic acid, methanesulfonic acid, nitric acid, oxalic acid, pamoic acid, pantothenic acid, phenylacetic acid, phosphoric acid, polygalactanal acid, propionic acid, salicylic acid, stearic acid, subacetic acid, succinic acid, sulfamic acid, sulfanilic acid, sulfuric acid, tannin, tartaric acid and p-toluenesulfonic acid.

[0049] The pharmaceutically acceptable salt of the present invention can be prepared from the parent compound that contains an acidic or basic moiety by conventional chemical method. Generally, such salt can be prepared by reacting the free acid or base form of the compound with a stoichiometric amount of an appropriate base or acid in water or an organic solvent or a mixture thereof. Generally, non-aqueous media such as ether, ethyl acetate, ethanol, isopropanol or acetonitrile are preferred.

[0050] In addition to the salt form, the compound provided by the present invention also exists in prodrug form. The prodrug of the compound described herein is the compound that readily undergoes chemical change under physiological condition to be converted into the compound of the present invention. Additionally, the prodrug can be converted to the compound of the present invention by a chemical or biochemical method in vivo environment.

[0051] Certain compounds of the present invention can exist in an nonsolvated form or a solvated form, including hydrated form. Generally, the solvated form is equivalent to the nonsolvated form, and both are encompassed within the scope of the present invention.

[0052] Certain compounds of the present invention can have an asymmetric carbon atom (optical center) or a double bond. The racemate, diastereomer, geometric isomer and individual isomer are all encompassed within the scope of the present invention.

[0053] Unless otherwise specified, the absolute configuration of a stereogenic center is represented by a wedged solid bond (

) and a wedged dashed bond (

), and the relative configuration of a stereogenic center is represented by a straight solid bond (

) and a straight dashed bond (

). When the compound described herein contains an olefinic double bond or other geometric asymmetric centers, E and Z geometric isomers are included unless otherwise specified. Likewise, all tautomeric forms are encompassed within the scope of the present invention.

[0054] The compound of the present invention may have a specific geometric or stereoisomeric form. The present invention contemplates all such compounds, including cis and trans isomer, (-)- and (+)-enantiomer, (R)- and (S)-enantiomer, diastereoisomer, (D)-isomer, (L)-isomer, and racemic mixture and other mixtures, for example, an enantiomer or diastereoisomer enriched mixture, all of which are encompassed within the scope of the present invention. The substituent such as alkyl may have an additional asymmetric carbon atom. All these isomers and mixtures thereof are encompassed within the scope of the present invention.

[0055] Optically active (R)- and (S)-isomer, or D and L isomer can be prepared using chiral synthesis or chiral reagents or other conventional techniques. If one kind of enantiomer of certain compound of the present invention is to be obtained, the pure desired enantiomer can be obtained by asymmetric synthesis or derivative action of chiral auxiliary followed by separating the resulting diastereomeric mixture and cleaving the auxiliary group. Alternatively, when the molecule contains a basic functional group (such as amino) or an acidic functional group (such as carboxyl), the compound reacts with an appropriate optically active acid or base to form a salt of the diastereomeric isomer which is then subjected to diastereomeric resolution through the conventional method in the art to give the pure enantiomer. In addition, the enantiomer and the diastereoisomer are generally isolated through chromatography which uses a chiral stationary phase and optionally combines with a chemical derivative method (such as carbamate generated from amine).

[0056] The compound of the present invention may contain an unnatural proportion of atomic isotope at one or more than one atom(s) that constitute the compound. For example, the compound can be radiolabeled with a radioactive isotope, such as tritium (3H), iodine-125 (125I) or C-14 (14C). All isotopic variations of the compound of the present invention, whether radioactive or not, are encompassed within the scope of the present invention.

[0057] The term "pharmaceutically acceptable carrier" refers to any agent or carrier medium which is capable of delivering an effective amount of the active substance of the present invention, does not interfere with the biological activity of the active substance and has no toxic side effect on the host or patient. The representative carrier includes water, oil, vegetable and mineral, cream base, lotion base, ointment base and the like. The base includes a suspending agent, a thickener, a penetration enhancer and the like. Their formulations are well known to the skilled in the cosmetic field or the topical pharmaceutical field.

[0058] The term "excipient" generally refers to a carrier, a diluent and/or a medium required for formulating an effective pharmaceutical composition.

[0059] For a medicament or a pharmacologically active agent, the term "effective amount" or "therapeutically effective amount" refers to a nontoxic but sufficient amount to achieve a desired effect of the medicament or the agent. For the oral dosage form of the present invention, an "effective amount" of the active substance in the composition refers to an amount required for achieving a desired effect when combining with another active substance in the composition. The effective amount varies from person to person and is determined depending on the age and general condition of the recipient as well as the specific active substance. The appropriate effective amount in an individual case can be determined by the skilled in the art based on routine experiment.

[0060] The term "active ingredient", "therapeutic agent", "active substance" or "active agent" refers to a chemical entity which can effectively treat the target disorder, disease or condition.

[0061] "Optional" or "optionally" means that the subsequent event or condition may occur but not requisite, that the term includes the instance in which the event or condition occurs and the instance in which the event or condition does not occur.

[0062] The term "substituted" means one or more than one hydrogen atom(s) on a specific atom are substituted with the substituent, including deuterium and hydrogen variants, as long as the valence of the specific atom is normal and the substituted compound is stable. When the substituent is a ketone (i.e. =O), it means two hydrogen atoms are substituted. Positions on an aromatic ring cannot be substituted with a ketone. The term "optionally substituted" means an atom can be substituted with a substituent or not, unless otherwise specified, the type and number of the substituent may be arbitrary as long as being chemically achievable.

[0063] When any variable (such as R) occurs in the constitution or structure of the compound more than once, the definition of the variable at each occurrence is independent. Thus, for example, if a group is substituted with 0-2 R, the group can be optionally substituted with up to two R, wherein the definition of R at each occurrence is independent. Moreover, a combination of the substituent and/or the variant thereof is allowed only when the combination results in a stable compound.

[0064] When the number of a linking group is 0, such as -(CRR)0-, it means that the linking group is a single bond.

[0065] When one of the variables is selected from a single bond, it means that the two groups linked by the single bond are connected directly. For example, when L in A-L-Z represents a single bond, the structure of A-L-Z is actually A-Z.

[0066] When a substituent is vacant, it means that the substituent does not exist. For example, when X is vacant in A-X, the structure of A-X is actually A. When a bond of a substituent can be cross-linked to more than one atom on a ring, such substituent can be bonded to any atom of the ring. When an enumerative substituent does not indicate by which atom it is attached to a compound included in the general chemical formula but not specifically mentioned, such substituent can be bonded by any of its atoms. A combination of substituents and/or variants thereof is allowed only when such combination can result in a stable compound. For example, the structural unit

means that the substituent R can be located at any position on cyclohexyl or cyclohexadiene.

[0067] Unless otherwise specified, the term "hetero" represents a heteroatom or a heteroatom group (e.g., an atom group containing a heteroatom), including the atom except carbon (C) and hydrogen (H) and the atom group containing the above heteroatom, for example, including oxygen (O), nitrogen (N), sulfur (S), silicon (Si), germanium (Ge), aluminum (Al), boron (B), -O-, -S-, =O, =S, -C(=O)O-, -C(=O)-, - C(=S)-, -S(=O), -S(=O)2-, and the group consisting of -C(=O)N(H)-, -N(H)-, -C(=NH)-, -S(=O)2N(H)- and -S(=O)N(H)-, each of which is optionally substituted.

[0068] Unless otherwise specified, the term "ring" refers to a substituted or unsubstituted cycloalkyl, heterocycloalkyl, cycloalkenyl, heterocycloalkenyl, cycloalkynyl, heterocycloalkynyl, aryl or heteroaryl. The so-called ring includes a single ring, a ring assembly, a spiral ring, a fused ring or a bridged ring. The number of the atom on the ring is usually defined as the member number of the ring, for example, a "5-7 membered ring" means that 5 to 7 atoms are arranged on a ring. Unless otherwise specified, the ring optionally contains 1 to 3 heteroatoms. Therefore, a "5-7 membered ring" includes, for example, phenyl, pyridinyl and piperidinyl; on the other hand, the term "5-7 membered heterocycloalkyl ring" includes pyridyl and piperidinyl, but excluding phenyl. The term "ring" also includes a ring system containing at least one ring, wherein each ring independently meets the above definition.

[0069] Unless otherwise specified, the term "heterocycle" or "heterocyclo" refers to a stable monocyclic, bicyclic or tricyclic ring containing a heteroatom or a heteroatom group, which can be saturated, partially unsaturated or unsaturated (aromatic) and can contain carbon atoms and 1, 2, 3 or 4 ring heteroatoms independently selected from N, O and S, wherein any of the above heterocycle can be fused to a benzene ring to form a bicyclic ring. Nitrogen and sulfur heteroatoms can optionally be oxidized (i.e., NO and S(O)p, p is 1 or 2). Nitrogen atom can be substituted or unsubstituted (i.e., N or NR, wherein R is H or other substituents already defined herein). The heterocycle can be attached to the pendant group of any heteroatom or carbon atom to form a stable structure. If the resulting compound is stable, the heterocycle described herein may have a substitution at a carbon or nitrogen position. Nitrogen atom on the heterocycle is optionally quaternized. In a preferred embodiment, when the total number of S and O atom of the heterocycle is more than 1, the heteroatom is not adjacent to each other. In another preferred embodiment, the total number of S and O atom of the heterocycle is not more than 1. As used herein, the term "aromatic heterocyclic group" or "heteroaryl" refers to a stable 5-, 6- or 7-membered monocyclic or bicyclic or 7-, 8-, 9- or 10-membered bicyclic heterocyclic aromatic ring which contains carbon atoms and 1, 2, 3 or 4 ring heteroatoms independently selected from N, O and S. Nitrogen atom can be substituted or unsubstituted (i.e., N or NR, wherein R is H or other substituents already defined herein). Nitrogen and sulfur heteroatoms may optionally be oxidized (i.e., NO and S(O)p, p is 1 or 2). It is worth noting that the total number of S and O atom of an aromatic heterocycle is not more than one. The bridged ring is also included in the definition of the heterocycle. A bridged ring is formed when one or more than one atom (i.e, C, O, N or S) link two non-adjacent carbon or nitrogen atoms. A preferred bridged ring includes, but not limited to one carbon atom, two carbon atoms, one nitrogen atom, two nitrogen atoms and one carbon-nitrogen group. It is worth noting that a bridge always converts a monocyclic ring to a tricyclic ring. In a bridged ring, the substituent on the ring may also be present on the bridge.
