or to pharmaceutically active acid addition salts thereof.

[0002] Now it has been found that the present compounds of formula I are modulators of γ-secretase, they may be useful for the treatment or prevention of a disease associated with the deposition of β-amyloid in the brain, in particular Alzheimer's disease, and other diseases such as cerebral amyloid angiopathy, hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis, Dutch-type (HCHWA-D), multi-infarct dementia, dementia pugilistica and Down syndrome.

[0003] Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia in later life. Pathologically, AD is characterized by the deposition of amyloid in extracellular plaques and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. The amyloid plaques are mainly composed of amyloid peptides (Aβ peptides) which originate from the β-Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP) by a series of proteolytic cleavage steps. Several forms of APP have been identified of which the most abundant are proteins of 695, 751 and 770 amino acids length. They all arise from a single gene through differential splicing. The Aβ peptides are derived from the same domain of the APP.

[0004] Aβ peptides are produced from APP through the sequential action of two proteolytic enzymes termed β- and γ-secretase. β-Secretase cleaves first in the extracellular domain of APP just outside of the trans-membrane domain (TM) to produce a C-terminal fragment of APP (CTFβ) containing the TM- and cytoplasmatic domain. CTFβ is the substrate for γ-secretase which cleaves at several adjacent positions within the TM to produce the Aβ peptides and the cytoplasmic fragment. Various proteolytic cleavages mediated by γ-secretase result in Aβ peptides of different chain length, e.g. Aβ38, Aβ40 and Aβ42. The latter one is regarded to be the more pathogenic amyloid peptide because of its strong tendency to form neurotoxic aggregates.

[0005] The β-secretase is a typical aspartyl protease. The γ-secretase is a high molecular weight complex that consists of four essential subunits: Presenilin (PS, including PS1 and PS2), nicastrin, anterior pharynx defective 1 (APH-1), and presenilin enhancer 2 (PEN-2). The atomic structure of human γ-secretase at 3.4 Å resolution has been published (X. Bai, C. Yan, G. Yang, P. Lu, D. Ma, L. Sun, R. Zhou, S. H. W. Scheres, Y. Shi, Nature 2015, 525, pages 212 - 217. The presenilins are bearing the catalytic site and represent a group of atypical aspartyl proteases which cleave their substrates within the TM of and which are themselves polytopic membrane proteins. The other essential components of γ-secretase, nicastrin and the products of the aph1 and pen-2 genes are believed to be responsible for substrate recognition and recruitment. Proven substrates for γ-secretase are APP and the proteins of the Notch receptor family, however, γ-secretase has a loose substrate specificity and many further membrane proteins unrelated to APP and Notch have been reported to be cleaved by the γ-secretase in vitro.

[0006] The γ-secretase activity is absolutely required for the production of Aβ peptides. This has been shown both by genetic means, i.e., ablation of the presenilin genes and by low-molecular-weight inhibitory compounds. According to the amyloid cascade hypothesis for AD the production and deposition of Aβ is the ultimate cause for the disease. Therefore, it was believed that selective and potent inhibition of γ-secretase might be useful for the prevention and treatment of AD.

[0007] An alternative mode of treatment is the modulation of the γ-secretase activity which results in a selective reduction of the Aβ42 production. This will lead in an increase of shorter Aβ isoforms, such as Aβ38, Aβ37 or others, which have no or reduced capability for aggregation and plaque formation, and are not or less neurotoxic. Compounds which show this effect on modulating γ-secretase activity include certain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and related analogues (Weggen et al., Nature, 414 (2001) 212-16).

[0008] Thus, the compounds of this invention will be useful for the treatment or prevention of a disease associated with the deposition of β-amyloid in the brain, in particular Alzheimer's disease, and other diseases such as cerebral amyloid angiopathy, hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis, Dutch-type (HCHWA-D), multi-infarct dementia, dementia pugilistica and Down syndrome.

General Synthesis of derivatives of type Ia with m = 1



[0027] 



[0028] The preparation of derivatives of general formula Ia with (m =1), where made according to the scheme 1. The synthesis of target compounds commenced by the nucleophilic addition of a commercially available substituted anilines 2 onto the diphenyl cyanocarbonimidate 3 leading to the intermediates 4 in a good yield. Upon N-alkylation with an electrophile [2-(2-bromoethoxy)tetrahydropyran] containing a protected alcohol moiety the compounds 5 were obtained. Upon reaction with hydrazine the corresponding triazoles 6 were obtained. Deprotection of the alcohol protected by tetrahydropyran (THP) group under standard acidic conditions afforded 7 in nearly quantitative yield, the alcohol precursor for the Mitsunobu reaction forming 8. A Buchwald coupling of 8 with a bromo derivatives of formula 10-a gave final compounds Ia. Alternatively, a Sandmeyer reaction with 8 led to the versatiles intermediates bromotriazole 9, which can easily undergo a Buchwald type reaction with different anilines of type 10-b affording also final products of formula Ia.

General Synthesis of derivatives of type Ib with m = 2



[0029] 



[0030] The preparation of derivatives of general formula Ib with (m =2), where made according to the scheme 2. The synthesis of target compounds commenced by the nucleophilic addition of a commercially available substituted anilines 2 onto the diphenyl cyanocarbonimidate 3 leading to the intermediates 4 in a good yield. Upon N-alkylation with an electrophile [2-(3-bromopropoxy)tetrahydropyran] containing a protected alcohol moiety the compounds 11 were obtained. Upon reaction with hydrazine the corresponding triazoles 12 were obtained. Deprotection of the alcohol protected by tetrahydropyran (THP) group under standard acidic conditions afforded 13 in nearly quantitative yield, the alcohol precursor for the Mitsunobu reaction forming 14. A Buchwald coupling of 14 with a bromo derivatives of formula 10-a gave final compounds Ib. Alternatively, a Sandmeyer reaction of 14 led to the versatiles intermediates bromotriazole 15, which can easily undergo a Buchwald type reaction with different anilines of type 10-b affording also final products of formula Ib.

General Synthesis of derivatives of type Ic with m = 3



[0031] 



[0032] The preparation of derivatives of general formula Ic with (m =3), where made according to the scheme 3. The synthesis of target compounds commenced by the nucleophilic addition of a commercially available substituted anilines 2 onto the diphenyl cyanocarbonimidate 3 leading to the intermediates 4 in a good yield.

A Buchwald coupling of 19 with a bromo derivatives of formula 10-a gave final compounds Ic. Alternatively, a Sandmeyer reaction of 19 led to the versatiles intermediates bromotriazole 20, which can easily undergo a Buchwald type reaction with different anilines of type 10-b affording final products of formula Ic.

Description of γ-secretase assay


Cellular γ-secretase assay



[0035] Human neuroglioma H4 cells overexpressing human APP695 with the Swedish double mutation (K595N/M596L) were plated at 30,000 cells/well/100 µl in 96-well plates in IMDM media containing 10% FCS, 0.2 mg/l Hygromycin B and incubated at 37°C, 5% CO2.

[0036] 3-4 hr post plating, compounds are a diluted in media and 50 µl is added as 1.5-fold concentrate to achieve the final concentration. Compound incubation is performed for 24 hr. Final doses typically range from 4 µM down to 0.0013 µM in half-log steps resulting in a eight point dose response curve.
Appropriate controls using vehicle only and reference compound were applied to this assay. The final concentration of Me2SO was 0.4%.

[0037] After incubation at 37°C, 5% CO2, the supernatant was subjected to quantification of secreted Aβ42 by the means of an AlphaLisa assay kit (Human Amyloid beta 1-42 Kit: Cat# AL203C, Perkin Elmer). 20 µl of the cell culture supernatant was transferred to an assay plate. Then 10 µl of a mixture of the AlphaLisa coupled capture antibody and the biotinylated detection antibody was added and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature while softly shaking the assay plate. After a further addition of 20 µl of the Donor beads the assay plate was incubated for 30 min at room temperature and constant shaking without exposure to direct light. The assay plate was then read on a Paradigm AlphaLisa Reader using the build-in program with excitation at 680 nm and emission at 570 nm.

[0038] The measured signals were then used to calculate IC50 values for inhibition of Aβ42 secretion by nonlinear regression fit analysis using XLfit 5.3 software (IDBS).

The compounds of formula I and the pharmaceutically acceptable salts of the compounds of formula I can be used as medicaments, e.g. in the form of pharmaceutical preparations. The pharmaceutical preparations can be administered orally, e.g. in the form of tablets, coated tablets, dragées, hard and soft gelatine capsules, solutions, emulsions or suspensions. The administration can, however, also be effected rectally, e.g. in the form of suppositories, parenterally, e.g. in the form of injection solutions.The administration can also be effected topically, e.g. transdermal administration, or in form of eye drops or ear drops.

[0040] The compounds of formula I can be processed with pharmaceutically inert, inorganic or organic carriers for the production of pharmaceutical preparations. Lactose, corn starch or derivatives thereof, talc, stearic acids or its salts and the like can be used, for example, as such carriers for tablets, coated tablets, dragées and hard gelatine capsules. Suitable carriers for soft gelatine capsules are, for example, vegetable oils, waxes, fats, semi-solid and liquid polyols and the like. Depending on the nature of the active substance no carriers are, however, usually required in the case of soft gelatine capsules. Suitable carriers for the production of solutions and syrups are, for example, water, polyols, glycerol, vegetable oil and the like. Suitable carriers for suppositories are, for example, natural or hardened oils, waxes, fats, semi-liquid or liquid polyols and the like.

[0041] The pharmaceutical preparations can, moreover, contain preservatives, solubilizers, stabilizers, wetting agents, emulsifiers, sweeteners, colorants, flavorants, salts for varying the osmotic pressure, buffers, masking agents or antioxidants. They can also contain still other therapeutically valuable substances.

[0042] Medicaments containing a compound of formula I or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and a therapeutically inert carrier are also an object of the present invention, as is a process for their production, which comprises bringing one or more compounds of formula I and/or pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salts and, if desired, one or more other therapeutically valuable substances into a galenical administration form together with one or more therapeutically inert carriers.

[0043] In accordance with the invention compounds of formula I as well as their pharmaceutically acceptable salts are useful in the control or prevention of illnesses based on the inhibition of Aβ42 secretion, such as of Alzheimer's disease.

[0044] The dosage can vary within wide limits and will, of course, have to be adjusted to the individual requirements in each particular case. In the case of oral administration the dosage for adults can vary from about 0.01 mg to about 1000 mg per day of a compound of general formula I or of the corresponding amount of a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof. The daily dosage may be administered as single dose or in divided doses and, in addition, the upper limit can also be exceeded when this is found to be indicated.
