Description

CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS



[0001] The present application claims the priorities to and benefits of the Chinese patent applications No. 201710047243.4 and No. 201710570764.8 filed with the China National Intellectual Property Administration on January 22, 2017 and July 13, 2017, respectively, which are incorporated herein by reference in their entireties.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] The present invention belongs to the field of medical chemistry, and relates to a salt of a 1,3,5-triazine derivative and a crystal thereof, and more particularly, to a salt of 4-(tert-butoxyamino)-6-(6-(trifluoromethyl)pyridin-2-yl)-N-(2-(trifluoromethyl)pyridin-4-yl)-1,3,5 -triazin-2-amine and a crystal thereof. The present invention also relates to processes for preparing the salt of the 1,3,5-triazine derivative and the crystal thereof, a pharmaceutical composition and use thereof.

BACKGROUND



[0003] As the most important key enzyme in intracellular tricarboxylic acid cycle, IDH (full name: isocitrate dehydrogenase) can catalyze the oxidative decarboxylation of isocitric acid to 2-oxoglutarate (i.e., α-ketoglutaric acid). Researches have shown that many tumors (such as, glioma, sarcoma, and acute myelocytic leukemia) have an IDH mutation at arginine residue in a catalytic center (IDH1/R132H, IDH2/R140Q, and IDH2/R172K). IDH2 mutations occur in approximately 15% of the patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and mutation rate increases with age.

[0004] Enasidenib (AG-221), the first IDH2 inhibitor co-developed by Agios and Celgene, has an overall response rate (ORR) up to 41% and a complete remission rate (CR) up to 27% after the treatment to relapsed and refractory AML. 76% of the effective patients insist on the treatment for at least 6 months, and 44% of them have a stable condition.

[0005] The chemical stability, solid-state stability, in vivo metabolic properties and shelf life of an active ingredient are very important factors for an identified active compound for commercial use. Therefore, it is very important for the production and storage of a drug to provide a suitable form of the drug having desired properties.

[0113] In some embodiments of the present application, the IDH2 mutation is an IDH2/R140Q mutation or an IDH2/R172K mutation.

[0114] "IDH2 mutant" refers to IDH2 in which an IDH2/R140Q mutation form or an IDH2/R172K mutation form has occurred.

[0115] In the present invention, the X-ray powder diffraction spectrum of a sample is measured under the following conditions.

[0116] Instrument: BRUKER D2; pretreatment of a sample: direct compression; sample tray: single crystal silicon sample tray; initial shot slit: 0.6 nm; 2θ angle range: 5° to 40°; detector slit: 3 mm; Cu target, tube pressure and current: 30 KV, 10 mA.

[0117] In the present invention, the DSC spectrum is measured under the following conditions.

[0118] Instrument: METTLER TOLEDO DSC1; temperature range: 0°C to 300°C; heating rate: 10°C/min.

[0119] It should be noted that, in an X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) spectrum, a diffraction pattern of a crystalline compound is usually characteristic for a specific crystalline form. Relative intensities of the bands (especially at the low angles) may vary depending upon preferential orientation effects resulting from the differences of crystals' conditions, particle sizes, and other measuring conditions. Therefore, the relative intensities of diffraction peaks are not characteristic for a specific crystalline form. It is the relative positions of peaks rather than relative intensities thereof that should be paid more attention when judging whether a crystalline form is the same as a known crystalline form. In additional, as for any given crystalline form, there may be a slight error in the position of peaks, which is also well known in the field of crystallography. For example, the position of a peak may shift due to the change of a temperature, the movement of a sample or the calibration of an instrument and so on when analyzing the sample, and the measurement error of 2θ value is sometimes about ± 0.2°. Accordingly, this error should be taken into consideration when identifying a crystal structure. Usually, the position of a peak is expressed in terms of 2θ angle or lattice spacing d in an XRD pattern and the simple conversion relationship therebetween is d = λ/2sinθ, wherein d represents the lattice spacing, λ represents the wavelength of incident X-ray, and θ represents the diffraction angle. For the same crystalline form of the same compound, the position of peaks in an XRD spectrum thereof has similarity on the whole, and the error of relative intensities may be larger. In addition, it is necessary to point out that due to some factors such as reduced contents, parts of diffraction lines may be absent in the identification of a mixture. In this case, even a band may be characteristic for the given crystalline form without depending upon all the bands of a high purity sample.

[0120] DSC is used to measure a thermal transition temperature when absorbing or releasing heat due to the change of a crystal structure or the melting of a crystal. In a continuous analysis of the same crystalline form of the same compound, the error of a thermal transition temperature and a melting point is typically within a range of about ±5°C, generally within a range of about ±3°C. A compound with a given DSC peak or melting point means that the DSC peak or melting point may be varied within a range of ±5°C. DSC provides an auxiliary method to distinguish different crystalline forms. Different crystalline forms can be identified by their characteristically different transition temperatures. It is necessary to point out that the DSC peak or melting point of a mixture may vary over a wider range. Furthermore, because of the decomposition in the melting process of a substance, the melting temperature is related to a heating rate.

[0121] In the present invention, the term "therapeutically effective amount" refers to the amount of the medicament or agent which is not toxic but sufficient to achieve the desired effect. The effective amount may be determined individually and depends on the age and general condition of the receptor as well as the specific active substance. The effective amount in a specific case can be determined by a person skilled in the art through conventional experiments.

[0122] In the present invention, the term "pharmaceutically acceptable carrier" refers to those carriers which are administered together with an active ingredient, have no significant irritation to an organism and do not impair the bioactivity and property of the active compound. Other information regarding the carriers may be found in Remington: The Science and Practice of Pharmacy, 21st Ed., Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins (2005), the contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.

[0123] In the present invention, the term "solvate" means a physical association of a compound, including a crystalline form thereof, of the present invention with one or more solvent molecules. This physical association includes hydrogen bonding. In certain instances the solvate will be capable of isolation, for example when one or more solvent molecules are incorporated in the crystal lattice of the crystalline solid. "Solvate" encompasses both solution-phase and isolable solvates. Representative solvates include, for example, a hydrate, or acetonate.

[0124] In the present invention, the term "hydrate" is a solvate in which the solvent molecule is H2O that is present in a defined stoichiometric amount, and may, for example, include hemihydrate, monohydrate, dihydrate, or trihydrate.

[0125] In the present invention, the term "acid addition salt" refers to a salt formed by reacting an organic acid or an inorganic acid with a free base.

[0126] In the present invention, the term "molar ratio" and the term "ratio of the moles" are equivalent to each other.

[0127] In the present invention, the term "room temperature" refers to 20°C to 25°C.

[0128] In the present invention, the term "concentrating under reduced pressure" means reducing the pressure by means of vacuum pumping to reduce the boiling point of a solvent, thereby evaporating the solvent and precipitating a solid.

[0129] In the present invention, the term "slurring" refers to a purification method in which a solid and a solvent are stirred together to contact sufficiently with each other so as to dissolve impurities by utilizing the difference in solubility of substances in the solvent.

[0130] In the present invention, the term "subject" includes humans and animals, for example, mammals (such as primates, cattle, horses, pigs, dogs, cats, mice, rats, rabbits, goats, sheep and birds, etc.).

[0131] Where a range of numerical values is recited herein, the range includes the endpoints thereof and all the individual integers and fractions within the range, and also includes each of the narrower ranges therein formed by all the various possible combinations of those endpoints and internal integers and fractions to form subgroups of the larger group of values within the stated range to the same extent as if each of those narrower ranges was explicitly recited.

[0132] The term "optionally" means that the subsequently described one or more events or circumstances may or may not occur, and that the description includes instances where said events or circumstances occur and instances in which it does not.

[0133] In the present invention, PK parameters are explained as follows: in the PK parameters, Tmax is the time to the maximum concentration (Tmax); Cmax is the maximum plasma concentration; MRT(0-t) is the average residence time from time 0 to the final blood collection time point; T1/2 is the half life; AUC(0-t) is the area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to the final blood collection time point; AUC(0-∞) is the area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to infinity.

Example 23: Inhibitory activity test against IDH2



[0170] The inhibitory activity of the compound of the present application against IDH2 (R172K, 40-end) was determined by using the following method. The inhibitory activity was expressed as IC50 values, i.e., the concentration of the compound required to achieve 50% inhibition of IDH2 activity.

Materials and Methods:



[0171] The inhibitory activity of a compound against IDH2 (R172K, 40-end) was determined by the decrease of a helper factor NADPH (reduced coenzyme II). The test compound was pre-incubated with an enzyme and NADPH, and then a reaction was initiated by the addition of a-KG, and performed for 120 minutes under a linear condition. Then, the reaction was terminated by the addition of diaphorase (lipoamide dehydrogenase) and the corresponding substrate resazurin. Diaphorase terminated the IDH2m reaction by decreasing the available helper factor NADPH, which oxidized NADPH to NADP (oxidized coenzyme II), and reduced resazurin to highly fluorescent resorufin. The amount of remaining helper factor NADPH after a specific reaction time was quantified via an easily detectable fluorophore.

[0172] Specifically, 2.5 µl of a 3-fold gradient diluted test compound was added to a 384-well plate, and then 5 µl of a reaction buffer (20 mM Tris-HCl, PH7.5; 150 mM NaCl; 10 mM MgCl2; 10 mM MnCl2; 0.4 mg/ml BSA and 2 mM DTT) containing 80 nM IDH2 (R172K, 40-end) and 40 µM NADPH was added. Then, the resulting test mixture was incubated for 120 minutes at a temperature of 23°C., and then 2.5 µl of the reaction buffer containing 4 mM a-KG was added to initiate the reaction. After incubating for 120 minutes at room temperature, 5 µl of a termination mixture (0.4 U/ml diaphorase and 40 µM resazurin) prepared with the reaction buffer was added to convert resazurin to resorufin to determine the remaining NADPH. After incubating for 10 minutes at a temperature of 23°C, a fluorescence value was determined through Flexstation 3 at Ex535/Em595. The results are shown in Table 13: the compound of Formula I has a better inhibitory activity than AG-221.

Example 24: Pharmacokinetic test



[0173] Healthy male adult rats (7-9 weeks old) were used, each group of animals (3 male rats) was intragastrically administered once at a single dose of 5 mg/kg. The animals in the intragastric administration group were fasted overnight before this study. The fasting time period was from 10 hours before administration to 4 hours after administration.

[0174] Blood samples were taken at 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 24 h after administration. The animals were anesthetized with isoflurane using a small animal anesthesia machine, and then 0.3 mL whole blood samples were taken from the fundus venous plexus. The blood samples were placed in heparin anticoagulant tubes, and centrifuged for 5 min at 4°C. and 4000 rpm. The resulting plasma samples were transferred to centrifuge tubes, and stored at -80°C until analysis.
