RESUMO

A low level of high density lipoprotein (HDL) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. HDL reduces inflammation and plays a central role in reverse cholesterol transport, where cholesterol is removed from peripheral tissues and atherosclerotic plaque. One approach to increase plasma HDL is through inhibition of endothelial lipase (EL). EL hydrolyzes phospholipids in HDL resulting in reduction of plasma HDL. A series of benzothiazole sulfone amides was optimized for EL inhibition potency, lipase selectivity and improved pharmacokinetic profile leading to the identification of Compound 32. Compound 32 was evaluated in a mouse pharmacodynamic model and found to show no effect on HDL cholesterol level despite achieving targeted plasma exposure (Ctrough > 15 fold over mouse plasma EL IC50 over 4 days).

RESUMO

Apelin, the endogenous ligand for the APJ receptor, has generated interest due to its beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system. Synthesized as a 77 amino acid preproprotein, apelin is post-translationally cleaved to a series of shorter peptides. Though (Pyr)1apelin-13 represents the major circulating form in plasma, it is highly susceptible to proteolytic degradation and has an extremely short half-life, making it challenging to quantify. Literature reports of apelin levels in rodents have historically been determined with commercial ELISA kits which suffer from a lack of selectivity, recognizing a range of active and inactive isoforms of apelin peptide. (Pyr)1apelin-13 has demonstrated beneficial hemodynamic effects in humans, and we wished to evaluate if similar effects could be measured in pre-clinical models. Despite development of a highly selective LC/MS/MS method, in rodent studies where (Pyr)1apelin-13 was administered exogenously the peptide was not detectable until a detailed stabilization protocol was implemented during blood collection. Further, the inherent high clearance of (Pyr)1apelin-13 required an extended release delivery system to enable chronic dosing. The ability to deliver sustained doses and stabilize (Pyr)1apelin-13 in plasma allowed us to demonstrate for the first time the link between systemic concentration of apelin and its pharmacological effects in animal models.

RESUMO

Endothelial lipase (EL) inhibitors have been shown to elevate HDL-C levels in pre-clinical murine models and have potential benefit in prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Modification of the 1-ethyl-3-hydroxy-1,5-dihydro-2H-pyrrol-2-one (DHP) lead, 1, led to the discovery of a series of potent tetrahydropyrimidinedione (THP) EL inhibitors. Synthesis and SAR studies including modification of the amide group, together with changes on the pyrimidinone core led to a series of arylcycloalkyl, indanyl, and tetralinyl substituted 5-amino or 5-hydroxypyrimidinedione-4-carboxamides. Several compounds were advanced to PK evaluation. Among them, compound 4a was one of the most potent with measurable ELHDL hSerum potency and compound 3g demonstrated the best overall pharmacokinetic parameters.

RESUMO

Screening of a small set of nonselective lipase inhibitors against endothelial lipase (EL) identified a potent and reversible inhibitor, N-(3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)propyl)-3-hydroxy-1-methyl-2-oxo-1,2-dihydropyridine-4-carboxamide (5; EL IC50 = 61 nM, ELHDL IC50 = 454 nM). Deck mining identified a related hit, N-(3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)propyl)-4-hydroxy-1-methyl-5-oxo-2,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrole-3-carboxamide (6a; EL IC50 = 41 nM, ELHDL IC50 = 1760 nM). Both compounds were selective against lipoprotein lipase (LPL) but nonselective versus hepatic lipase (HL). Optimization of compound 6a for EL inhibition using HDL as substrate led to N-(4-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)butan-2-yl)-1-ethyl-4-hydroxy-5-oxo-2,5-dihydro-1H-pyrrole-3-carboxamide (7c; EL IC50 = 148 nM, ELHDL IC50 = 218 nM) having improved PK over compound 6a, providing a tool molecule to test for the ability to increase HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) levels in vivo using a reversible EL inhibitor. Compound 7c did not increase HDL-C in vivo despite achieving plasma exposures targeted on the basis of enzyme activity and protein binding demonstrating the need to develop more physiologically relevant in vitro assays to guide compound progression for in vivo evaluation.

RESUMO

BMS-A is an inhibitor of cholesteryl ester transfer protein and is a highly lipophilic compound (clogP 10.5) with poor aqueous solubility (<0.0001 mg/mL at pH 6.5). The compound exhibits low oral exposure when dosed as cosolvent solution formulations. The purpose of this study was to evaluate lipid-based formulations for enabling high-dose toxicology studies and enhancing toxicology margins of BMS-A in preclinical studies in nonrodent species. The solubility of BMS-A was screened in lipid and cosolvent/surfactant excipients, and prototype formulations were developed. In vitro tests showed that fine/microemulsions were formed after aqueous dilution of lipid formulations, and BMS-A was transferred from oil phase to aqueous phase with enhanced solubility following lipid digestion. When dosed in dogs at 200 mg/kg, a Gelucire-based formulation exhibited more than 10-fold higher exposure compared to the solution formulation and was thus selected for toxicology studies in dogs. For monkeys, an olive oil formulation was developed, and the exposure was about 7-fold higher than that from the solution. In summary, lipid-based drug delivery could be applied in early stages of drug discovery to enhance oral exposure and enable preclinical toxicology studies of highly lipophilic compounds, while facilitating the candidate selection of a molecule which is more specifically designed for bioperformance in a lipid-based drug delivery strategy.

RESUMO

We have recently disclosed 5-phenyl-N-(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)-2-(pyrimidin-5-yl)quinazolin-4-amine 1 as a potent IKur current blocker with selectivity versus hERG, Na and Ca channels, and an acceptable preclinical PK profile. Upon further characterization in vivo, compound 1 demonstrated an unacceptable level of brain penetration. In an effort to reduce the level of brain penetration while maintaining the overall profile, SAR was developed at the C2' position for a series of close analogues by employing hydrogen bond donors. As a result, 5-[5-phenyl-4-(pyridin-2-ylmethylamino)quinazolin-2-yl]pyridine-3-sulfonamide (25) was identified as the lead compound in this series. Compound 25 showed robust effects in rabbit and canine pharmacodynamic models and an acceptable cross-species pharmacokinetic profile and was advanced as the clinical candidate. Further optimization of 25 to mitigate pH-dependent absorption resulted in identification of the corresponding phosphoramide prodrug (29) with an improved solubility and pharmacokinetic profile.

RESUMO

A new series of phenylquinazoline inhibitors of Kv 1.5 is disclosed. The series was optimized for Kv 1.5 potency, selectivity versus hERG, pharmacokinetic exposure, and pharmacodynamic potency. 5-Phenyl-N-(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)-2-(pyrimidin-5-yl)quinazolin-4-amine (13k) was identified as a potent and ion channel selective inhibitor with robust efficacy in the preclinical rat ventricular effective refractory period (VERP) model and the rabbit atrial effective refractory period (AERP) model.

RESUMO

Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) inhibitors raise HDL-C in animals and humans and may be antiatherosclerotic by enhancing reverse cholesterol transport (RCT). In this article, we describe the lead optimization efforts resulting in the discovery of a series of triphenylethanamine (TPE) ureas and amides as potent and orally available CETP inhibitors. Compound 10g is a potent CETP inhibitor that maximally inhibited cholesteryl ester (CE) transfer activity at an oral dose of 1 mg/kg in human CETP/apoB-100 dual transgenic mice and increased HDL cholesterol content and size comparable to torcetrapib (1) in moderately-fat fed hamsters. In contrast to the off-target liabilities with 1, no blood pressure increase was observed with 10g in rat telemetry studies and no increase of aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2) was detected in H295R cells. On the basis of its preclinical profile, compound 10g was advanced into preclinical safety studies.

RESUMO

Phenethyl aminoheterocycles like compound 1 were known to be potent I(Kur) blockers although they lacked potency in vivo. Modification of the heterocycle led to the design and synthesis of pseudosaccharin amines. Compounds such as 14, 17d and 21c were found to be potent K(V)1.5 blockers and selective over other cardiac ion channels. These compounds had potent pharmacodynamic activity, however, they also showed off-target activities such as hemodynamic effects.

RESUMO

Phenethylaminoheterocycles have been prepared and assayed for inhibition of the Kv1.5 potassium ion channel as a potential approach to the treatment of atrial fibrillation. A diverse set of heterocycles were identified as potent Kv1.5 inhibitors and were advanced to pharmacodynamic evaluation based on selectivity and pharmacokinetic profile. Heterocycle optimization and template modification lead to the identification of compound 24 which demonstrated increased atrial effective refractory period in the rabbit pharmacodynamic model with mild effects on blood pressure and heart rate.

RESUMO

A series of diphenylpyridylethanamine (DPPE) derivatives was identified exhibiting potent CETP inhibition. Replacing the labile ester functionality in the initial lead 7 generated a series of amides and ureas. Further optimization of the DPPE series for potency resulted in the discovery of cyclopentylurea 15d, which demonstrated a reduction in cholesterol ester transfer activity (48% of predose level) in hCETP/apoB-100 dual transgenic mice. The PK profile of 15d was suboptimal, and further optimization of the N-terminus resulted in the discovery of amide 20 with an improved PK profile and robust efficacy in transgenic hCETP/apoB-100 mice and in hamsters. Compound 20 demonstrated no significant changes in either mean arterial blood pressure or heart rate in telemeterized rats despite sustained high exposures.

RESUMO

Previously disclosed dihydropyrazolopyrimidines are potent and selective blockers of I(Kur) current. A potential liability with this chemotype is the formation of a reactive metabolite which demonstrated covalent binding to protein in vitro. When substituted at the 2 or 3 position, this template yielded potent I(Kur) inhibitors, with selectivity over hERG which did not form reactive metabolites. Subsequent optimization for potency and PK properties lead to the discovery of ((S)-5-(methoxymethyl)-7-(1-methyl-1H-indol-2-yl)-2-(trifluoromethyl)-4,7-dihydropyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidin-6-yl)((S)-2-(3-methylisoxazol-5-yl)pyrrolidin-1-yl)methanone (13j), with an acceptable PK profile in preclinical species and potent efficacy in the preclinical rabbit atrial effective refractory period (AERP) model.

RESUMO

Dihydropyrazolopyrimidines with a C6 heterocycle substituent were found to have high potency for block of K(V)1.5. Investigation of the substitution in the benzimidazole ring and the substituent in the 5-position of the dihydropyrazolopyrimidine ring produced 31a with an IC50 for K(V)1.5 block of 0.030muM without significant block of other cardiac ion channels. This compound also showed good bioavailability in rats and robust pharmacodynamic effects in a rabbit model.

RESUMO

The design and synthesis of a series of highly functionalized pyrano-[2,3b]-pyridines is described. These compounds were assayed for their ability to block the I(Kur) channel encoded by the gene hKV1.5 in patch-clamped L-929 cells. Six of the compounds in this series showed sub-micromolar activity, the most potent being 4-(4-ethyl-benzenesulfonylamino)-3-hydroxy-2,2-dimethyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrano[2,3b]-pyridine-6-carboxylic acid ethyl-phenyl-amide with an IC(50) of 378 nM.
