Abstract

A process for forming a conjugate of a polyoxyalkylene polymer (such as polyethylene glycol) with a compound containing an amine group(s) and/or a sulfide group(s) by reacting the compound with an acrylate terminated polyoxyalkylene (such as polyethylene glycol terminate at one end with acrlyate or methacrylate and terminated at the other end with a methoxy group). The reaction is believed to be a Michael addition. When the compound contains primary amine groups (such as the surface primary amine groups of a PAMAM dendrimer), it is usually desirable to convert the primary amine groups to secondary amine groups before the reaction with the acrylate terminated polyoxyalkylene.

Description

    BACKGROUND
  • The instant invention is in the field of chemical compounds comprising polyoxyalkylene sub-structures such as polyethylene glycol sub-structures. The instant invention also relates to methods for producing chemical compounds comprising polyoxyalkylene sub-structures.
  • Biologically active compounds comprising polyoxyalkylene sub-structures can provide enhanced biocompatibility for the compound, See, for example, U.S. Pat. No. 5,366,735 and U.S. Pat. No. 6,280,745. A review of this subject by Zalipsky, in Bioconjugate Chem., 1995, 6, p 150-165, identified polyethylene glycol as one of the best biocompatible polymers to conjugate with a biologically active compound (such as a drug, a protein, a peptide or an enzyme) to produce a conjugate having improved properties such as compatible solubility characteristics, reduced toxicity and reduced immunogenicity.
  • Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a linear or branched polyoxyalkylene terminated at the ends thereof with hydroxyl groups and generally represented by the formula: HO—(CH2CH2O)n—CH2CH2—OH. As discussed by Henmanson in Chapter 15 of Bioconjugate Techniques (1966), monomethoxy polyethylene glycol (mPEG) generally represented by the formula: CH3O—(CH2CH2O)n—CH2CH2—OH, is usually used to prepare a polyethylene glycol conjugate with a biologically active compound typically by way of a coupling reaction between an amine group of the biologically active compound and an amine receptive derivative (such as trichloro-s-triazine activated mPEG) formed via the remaining terminal hydroxyl group of the monomethoxy polyethylene glycol. An acrylate terminated PEG is offered commercially by Shearwater Corporation (Huntsville, Ala.) for vinyl polymerization or co-polymerization to produce graft polymers or cross-linked materials with excellent properties for biomaterial applications.
  • More recently, so called “second generation” PEGylation chemistry has been developed to, for example, minimize problems of diol impurity contamination of mPEG, to increase the molecular weight of the polyoxyalkylene sub-structure and to increase stability of the conjugate, see Roberts et al., Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews 54 (2002) p459-476.
  • Dendrimers are hyperbranched, uniformly distributed structures, having (at least ideally) definite molecular weight, shape and nanometer size characteristics. Dendrimers were discovered by Tomalia and co-workers at the Dow Chemical Company, see Polym. J. 17 (1985) p 117-132. Dendrimers have been widely studied as a drug delivery means, see for example Knusli et al., J. Haematology, 82, 654 (1992). Dendrimers carrying the anti cancer drug 5-fluorouracil have been PEGylated to reduce hemolytic toxicity, drug leakage and macrophageal uptake while improving stability and efficacy, see Bhadra et al., International Journal of Pharmaceutics 257 (2003) p 111-124.
  • PAMAM dendrimers are the most common type of dendrimer and are commercially available from Aldrich (Milwaukee, Wis.) in the form of various “generations”. PAMAM dendrimers are made by a successive Michael addition synthesis scheme involving the reaction of an acrylate group with an amine group. The so called “Generation 0” PAMAM dendrimer has the following formula:
    Figure US20050171002A1-20050804-C00001
  • The above Generation 0 PAMAM dendrimer has a molecular weight of about 517 grams per mole. A Generation 1 PAMAM dendrimer has a molecular weight of about 1,430 grams per mole and has eight terminal primary amine groups. A Generation 2 PAMAM dendrimer has a molecular weight of about 3,256 grams per mole and has sixteen terminal primary amine groups. A Generation 10 PAMAM dendrimer has a theoretical molecular weight of almost 935 kilograms per mole and in theory has 4096 primary amine groups on the surface of the dendrimer.
  • Despite the significant advances that have been made in the field of methods for the PEGylation of biologically active compounds (and more generally in the field of methods for the conjugation of polyoxyalkylene sub-structures with biologically active compounds), the existing methods generally require multiple reactions and extensive purification of the product. It would be an advance in this art if a process were discovered that required only one reaction step and produced no by-products.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The method of the instant invention is a solution, at least in part, to the above described problems of the prior art. The instant invention provides a one step pegylation method that ideally produces no by-products. In addition, the method of the instant invention can be practiced at room temperature and under conditions such as solvent compatibility that are mild relative to maintenance of biological activity. In one embodiment, the instant invention is applicable to biologically active compounds containing an amine group. In another embodiment, the instant invention is applicable to biologically active compounds containing a sulfide group. The biologically active compound is reacted with an acrylate terminated polyoxyalkylene (such as H2C═CH—CO—O-PEG-O—CH3) in a one step process to produce novel conjugates having many if not all of the benefits of the prior art conjugates.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • In general, the process of the instant invention can be conducted at room temperature. Infrared (IR) spectra are obtained using a thin film on a sodium chloride plate. Spectra are recorded using a Nicolet 20DXB Fourier Transform (FT-IR) Spectrometer and absorption is reported in wave number (cm−1). IR spectra cover the range 1000-4000 cm−1.
  • Proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectra and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectra are recorded for solutions in appropriate solvents containing tetramethylsilane in case of chloroform and methanol and 3(trimethylsilyl)propane Sulfonic acid sodium salt (DSS) in case of Deuterium Oxide as internal standard using a General Electric QE-300 NMR spectrometer. The NMR shifts are reported in parts per million (δ, PPM). The following standard abbreviations were used in describing NMR data: s=singlet, d=doublet, t=triplet, q=quartet, m=multiplet.
  • Mass Spectra are obtained by using a Hewlett-Packard Model 5995A gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer with an ionizing potential of 70 electron volts.

  • Analysis of spectral data especially the 1H NMR analysis of the pegylated PAMAM dendrimer revealed the fact that the double bond of PEGMA is allowed to react with the terminal amine groups of PAMAM dendrimer qualitatively. However, it was observed that the desired product, 3, is not apparently formed. Detailed analysis of NMR spectra suggested that although 3 forms first, it is rapidly converted into 15 in the presence of solvent methanol. A considerable amount of compound 15 gets converted back to 3 during the removal of methanol at the completion of the reaction. Moreover, both 3 and 15 are unstable in presence of water and are hydrolyzed rapidly to 16. The mechanism is believed to be a series of substitution reactions described below. The intra molecular hydrogen bond appears to be playing an important role to facilitate above described reactions.

  • An examination of the above scheme clearly demonstrates the proposition that the hydrogen atom on the nitrogen atom plays a pivotal role in the production of 15 and 17, instead of the desired product 3. Furthermore, it is suspected that the dendrimer molecule under investigation can speed up trans-esterification and hydrolysis processes readily. It is also suspected that trans-esterification and hydrolysis processes occurs for quarter as well as per pegylation. It is observed from the NMR spectrum that the intensity ratio of the peaks corresponding to the methoxy groups (OCH3) of methanol and compound 16 was changed with the time upon the addition of the water. When water is added to the pegylated PAMAM dendrimer, the changes of the intensity ratio of the absorbance correspond to methoxy groups of methanol and compound 16 can be monitored by 1H NMR spectrum. The ratio Vs time is noted as illustrated in Table 1 below. It is suspected from the data that rates of hydrolysis follow the same trend.

  • In order to circumvent the undesired reactions after pegylation, it was decided to block three of the four amine groups of PAMAM Dendrimer (Generation=0) to remove all the hydrogen attached to three primary residual nitrogen atoms. The remaining primary residual nitrogen atom can then be pegylated without any unwanted product. Benzaldehyde and acetophenone were used for above purpose (and almost any aldehyde or ketone can be used for this purpose and an aldehyde substituted cyclodextrin is believed to be especially useful in this respect). As carbonyl group of benzaldehyde and acetophenone reacts with primary residual amine groups of dendrimer (Generation=0) to form an imine. Reactions were carried out using little excess of such reagents. Analysis of the product by NMR indicated that the expected product 5 was formed along with the other side products. Blocking only three residual amine groups out of four was not achieved successfully and was complicated due to distribution of benzaldehyde and acetophenone molecules as well, since side products 9, 10 and others formed along with the expected product 5.

  • Model reactions 6.a and 6.b show that formation of Schiff base followed by reduction of imine functional group can be achieved. The presence of absorbance at 1642 cm−1 confirm the formation of imine. On the other hand the absence of that absorbance in IR spectrum after reduction proved that imine functional group can be reduced. Furthermore, the secondary amine can be pegylated and form the desired product. All the four primary amine groups of dendrimer molecules (Generation=0) can be converted to imine groups by reacting with carbonyl groups of, for example, benzaldehyde as well as acetophenone.
  • The synthesis routes are shown in scheme 7 and 8 to remove the hydrogen atoms attached to residual primary amine groups. An examination of the spectra reveals the presence of absorbance corresponding to imine functional groups. Analysis of the products by IR and NMR indicates that all amine groups were converted to imines. The imine groups of products 9 and 12 can be reduced by selective reducing agent as dendrimer molecule contains acid amide groups which are very sensitive to reducing agents. Sodium cyanohydridoborate hydride is used for this specific purpose.
  • An examination of 1H and 13C NMR spectra as well as IR spectra showed that the absence of the absorbance due to imine group. The absorbance of the reduced products 10 and 13 are identified. The hydrogen atoms of compounds 10 and 13 associated with four nitrogen atoms are pegylated in the following step. NMR analysis of the products indicates that compounds 10 as well as 13 were pegylated. The examination of spectral data showed the formation of alcohol of the corresponding aldehyde as side product as excess aldehyde was used for those reactions. In addition, Boron complex compound was formed during the reduction step. Most of the absorbance of the final product in 1H and 13C NMR spectra is identified with the help of 1H—1H and 1H—13C correlation spectra.
  • It is noticed that reaction schemes 7 as well as 8 can not apparently be accomplished step by step. It is thought necessary that reduced compounds 10 and 13 to be worked up in order to remove unwanted Boron complex compounds after reduction of the imine.
  • It is observed that reduced product can not be dissolved further in low boiling point solvent such as methanol once solvent was removed after working up. This is apparently because of the formation of intra-molecular H-bonding after the solvent is removed at room temperature under vacuum. This kind of intra-molecular H-bond makes reduced compounds 10 and 13 reluctant to form further inter-molecular H-bonding with solvent. For the sake of simplicity in isolating the product, a low boiling solvent is probably the best choice for this reaction.
  • Therefore, a modified procedure is developed in order to avoid such solubility problem. The problem associated with solubility is avoided by pegylating compounds 10 and 13 before work up. The analysis of 1H NMR indicated that double bonds of PEGMEA are reacted with secondary amine groups of compounds 10 and 13.
  • The reactions are carried and dendrimers are pegylated first without working it up. Spectral data showed that dendrimer is successfully pegylated. It can be problematic to work up the pegylated products 11 and 14 as cleavage or hydrolysis could have been possible during work up. However, examination of the 1H, 13C NMR spectra showed that the PEG molecules remain unchanged after treatment with strong acid and base. It is observed that delicate ether and carbonyl moieties of pegylated products 11 and 14 are neither cleaved nor hydrolyzed.
  • Gel electrophoresis of compound 11 and 14 along with different generation of dendrimer (ladder) are carried out to confirm the formation of compounds 11 and 14. The migration of 10 and 11 is slower than that of 13 and 14 and is explained on the basis of steric effects.
  • Aldehyde substituted beta cyclodextrins are especially useful in the instant invention to block primary amines. For example, an amine terminated polyethylene glycol can be reacted with an aldehyde substituted beta cyclodextrin at room temperature in aqueous sodium cyanohydridoborate to couple the cyclodextrine to the polyethylene glycol via a nitrogen atom to form a pegylated cyclodextrine adduct. Then, the pegylated cyclodextrine adduct can be reacted with the polyoxyalkylene acrylate to form a cyclodextrin adduct that is further pegylated.
  • Chitosan can be reacted with an aldehyde substituted beta cyclodextrin at room temperature in aqueous sodium cyanohydridoborate to block the primary amines of the chitosan followed by reaction with the polyoxyalkylene acrylate to form a pegylated and beta cyclodextrin substituted chitosan. Peptides, polypeptides and proteins containing primary amines can be reacted with an aldehyde substituted beta cyclodextrin at room temperature in aqueous sodium cyanohydridoborate to block the primary amines of the peptide, polypeptide or protein followed by reaction with the polyoxyalkylene acrylate to form a pegylated and beta cyclodextrin substituted peptide, polypeptide or protein.
  • As a specific example, the following scheme can be used in the instant invention to first convert the primary amines of poly-L-arginine to secondary amines by the addition of a cyclodextrin to the amine group and then pegylation with a polyethylene glycol acrylate. A 3 necked, 25-mL, round-bottomed, flask is fitted with nitrogen inlet, a condenser with drying tube, a rubber septum, and a magnetic stir bar. The following ingredients are added to the flask: poly-L-arginine hydrochloride (5 mg, 0.663 pmol), beta cyclodextrin monoaldehyde (58.0 mg, 51.2 pmol), 2-mL of deionized water and 1-mL sodium hydroxide solution (0.2586M). Immediately after addition of the base, sodium cyanoborohydride (8.6 mg, 0.137 mmol) is added. The reaction mixture is stirred for 72 hours at room temperature. Half the reaction mixture (1.5-mL) is then removed and precipitated in 5-mL acetone for analysis to confirm the desired reaction. The remainder of the reaction mixture is mixed with 1-mL of poly(ethylene glycol)methyl ether acrylate aqueous solution (0.0286M). The reaction mixture is then stirred for an additional 72 hours at room temperature and then precipitated in 10-mL of acetone and centrifuged to yield a white solid that is dried under vacuum overnight. Analysis of the white solid confirms the desired formation of a pegylated beta cyclodextrin-poly-L-arginine conjugate.
  • As a specific further example, the following scheme can be used in the instant invention to first convert the primary amines of poly-L-lysine to secondary amines by the addition of a cyclodextrin to the amine group and then pegylation with a polyethylene glycol acrylate. A 3 necked, 25-mL, round-bottomed, flask is fitted with a nitrogen inlet, a condenser with drying tube, a rubber septum and a magnetic stir bar. The following ingredients are added to the flask: poly-L-lysine hydrochloride (8 mg, 0.5 μmol), beta cyclodextrin monoaldehyde (55.0 mg, 48.5 pmol), 2-mL of deionized water and 1-mL sodium hydroxide solution (0.0485M). Immediately after addition of the base, sodium cyanoborohydride (8.1 mg, 0.129 mmol) is added. The reaction mixture is then stirred for 72 hours at room temperature. Half the reaction mixture (1.5-mL) is then removed and precipitated in 5-mL acetone for analysis to confirm the production of the desired product. To the remainder of the reaction mixture, 0.5-mL poly(ethylene glycol)methyl ether acrylate aqueous solution (0.0502M) is added. The reaction mixture is then stirred for an additional 72 hours at room temperature and then precipitated in 10-mL of acetone and centrifuged to yield a white sold that was dried under vacuum overnight. Analysis of the white solid confirms the desired formation of a pegylated beta cyclodextrin-poly-L-lysine conjugate.
  • As a specific additional example, the following scheme can be used in the instant invention to first convert the primary amines of Chitosan to secondary amines by the addition of a cyclodextrin to the amine group and then pegylation with a polyethylene glycol acrylate. A 3 necked, 25-mL, round-bottomed, flask is fitted with a nitrogen inlet, a condenser with drying tube, a rubber septum and a magnetic stir bar. The following ingredients are added to the flask: low molecular weight chitosan (50 mg, 0.185 mmol) dissolved in 15-mL of 0.1M hydrochloric acid, 2.00 g of beta-glucero-phosphate dissolved in 4-mL of deionized water, beta cyclodextrin monoaldehyde (421 mg, 0.370 mmol) and sodium cyanoborohydride (33 mg, 0.525 mmol). The reaction mixture is then stirred for 72 hours at room temperature. 14-mL of the reaction mixture is removed for analysis to confirm the production of the desired product. To the remainder of the reaction mixture, 4.50-mL poly(ethylene glycol)methyl ether acrylate aqueous solution (0.0220M) is added. The reaction mixture is then stirred for and additional 72 hours at room temperature. The resulting solution is then lyophilized to yield a white fibrous solid. The solid is then washed with acetone using a soxhlet and dried under vacuum overnight. Analysis of the solid confirms the formation of the desired pegylated beta cyclodextrin-chitosan conjugate.
  • As a yet further specific additional example, the following scheme can be used in the instant invention to pegylate glutathione. Glutathione (0.153 g, 0.0005 mole), poly (ethylene glycol)methyl ether acrylate (0.225 g, 0.0005 mole) are dissolved in 4 mL of a buffer solution (pH=5.8) in a screw cap vial. The clear aqueous solution is allowed to mix on a tabletop shaker for 3 h at room temperature. The entire reaction mixture is lypholized to produce the desired pegylated glutathione.
  • The following scheme can be used in the instant invention for the pegylation of proteins: (a) the protein is dissolved or dispersed in 0.1M bicarbonate buffer, pH 9.1 (the concentration of proteins as a rule can be measured from their extinction coefficients at 280 nm); (b) mPEG acrylate solutions are prepared at various concentrations in 0.1M bicarbonate buffer, pH 9.1; (c) a known volume of the protein solution is mixed with the mPEG solution in various vials to yield various amino/mPEG ratios; (d) samples are incubated under defined temperatures and times with appropriate control tubes; and (e) after reaction, the reaction mixture is subjected to native gel electrophoresis in 10% polyacrylamide gels (protein staining, as a rule, is performed with Coomassie Blue).
  • As a final additional specific example, the following scheme can be used in the instant invention to first convert the primary amines of a PAMAM dendrimer to secondary amines by the addition of a cyclodextrin to the amine group and then pegylation with a polyethylene glycol acrylate. A 3 necked, 25-mL, round-bottomed, flask is fitted with a nitrogen inlet, a condenser with drying tube, a rubber septum and a magnetic stir bar. The following ingredients are added to the flask: PAMAM generation 0 dendrimer (160 mg, 0.310 mmol) dissolved in 1-mL deionized water, beta cyclodextrin monoaldehyde (1.5010 g, 1.32 mmol) dissolved in 15-mL of deionized water and sodium cyanoborohydride (229.6 mg, 3.65 mmol). The reaction mixture is then stirred for 72 hours at room temperature. 6-mL of the reaction mixture is then removed and precipitated in methanol to confirm the production of the desired product. To the remainder of the reaction mixture, 9-mL poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether acrylate aqueous solution (0.0880M) are added. The reaction mixture is then stirred for an additional 72 hours at room temperature and then precipitated in 10-mL of acetone and centrifuged to yield a white sold that was dried under vacuum overnight. Analysis confirms the desired production of pegylated beta cyclodextrin PAMAM dendrimer conjugate.
  • Thus, it should be appreciated that in the instant invention any compound containing an amine group can be reacted with the polyoxyalkylene acrylate to form a conjugate comprising a polyoxyalkylene sub-structure. Furthermore, when the amine group is a primary amine, then it may be necessary (such as in the case of a PAMAM dendrimer) as a preliminary step to “block” the primary amine(s), as discussed above in detail, by reaction of such primary amine(s) with an aldehyde or ketone followed by conversion of the resulting imine to a secondary amine. Many drug compounds contain amine group(s) and it should be understood that the instant invention is an excellent means of converting such drugs to a polyoxyalkylene conjugate of the drug.
  • The term “polyoxyalkylene” is defined in the above referenced U.S. Pat. No. 6,280,745, herein fully incorporated by reference, and includes polyethylene glycol, polypropylene glycol, as well as block and random polyethylene glycol/polypropylene glycol co-polymers. Although acrylate terminated polyethylene glycols are commercially available, acrylate terminated polyethylene glycol can be prepared, for example, by reacting a monomethoxy polyethylene glycol with acryloyl chloride or, for example, with methacroloyl chloride.
  • The molecular weight of the polyoxyalkylene sub-structure of the instant invention can be tailored so that the conjugate has desired properties such as solubility characteristics that are more compatible with the biologic system. In many cases, the preferred molecular weight of the polyoxyalkylene sub-structure of the instant invention will be in the range of from about 500 to about 5000 grams per mole.
  • In addition to reactions with amines, the acrylate terminated polyoxylakylene of the instant invention also can be reacted with a terminal sulfur (sulfide) group(s) of a biologically active compound to produce novel compounds. For example an aqueous buffered (pH=5.8) solution of glutathione can be pegylated at room temperature by a two hour reaction with the acrylate terminated polyethylene glycol of the instant invention. Polycysteine can be similarly pegylated.
  • The process of the instant invention produces novel compounds that, as expected, maintain their biological activity. For example, bovine erythrocyte carbonic anhydrase (CAB) pegylated with mPEG acrylate at room temperature in a pH 9.1 aqueous buffer (mole ratio of CAB to mPEG acrylate of 1:8; 1:2 and 8:1) maintains its biological activity. As a further example, hen egg white lysozyme (HEWL) pegylated with mPEG acrylate at room temperature in a pH 9.1 aqueous buffer (mole ratio of HEWL to mPEG acrylate of 1:2 and 8:1) also maintains its biological activity.
