Description

INHIBITORS OF CELLULAR EFFLUX PUMPS OF MICROBES

This invention relates to compounds with efflux pump inhibitor properties, and which are therefore compounds which inhibit cellular efflux pumps of bacteria or other microbes. Such efflux pump inhibitors are useful, for example, against antibiotic-resistant microbial pathogens, for treating microbial infections by reducing the export of a co-administered antimicrobial agent or by preventing the export of a compound synthesized by microbes (e.g. bacteria, fungi) to allow or improve their growth. Thus, this invention also provides processes for preparation of such efflux pump inhibitors, compositions which include such efflux pump inhibitors, and the use of the compounds and compositions in methods for treatment of microbial infections.

Background of the Invention

Microbes are known to have developed the ability to evolve different mechanisms of self-defense against antimicrobial agents. In particular, bacterial and fungal pathogens have developed mechanisms of resistance to antibiotics and antimicrobial agents used to inhibit their growth, or to treat infections by them in humans, animals and tissue cultures. As a result, treatment regimens can be adversely affected or, in some cases rendered ineffective.

One of the most frequently employed resistance strategies in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes is the transmembrane-protein-catalyst extrusion of drugs from the cell, with these proteins acting like bilge pumps, reducing the intracellular drug concentration to subtoxic levels. (M. Ines Vorges-Walmsley et al, Trends in Microbiology, 2001, 9:71-79).

Recent developments in the efflux area include the discovery of new monodrug efflux systems, as well as the realisation of the importance of multidrug efflux systems (H. Nikaido and H.I. Zgurskaya, Current Opinion in Infectious Diseases, 1999, 12:529). In gram-negative bacteria, for example, single component efflux pumps extrude their substrates into the periplasmic space as is done by the transposon-encoded tetracycline- and chloramphenicol-specific pumps, TetA and CmlA, respectively, and the MDR pump MdfA encoded in the chromosome of Escherichia coll

Bacterial genomes sequenced to date almost invariably contain genes apparently coding for multidrug efflux pumps. Multidrug efflux as a major cause of intrinsic drug resistance in many microorganisms, or overproduction of intrinsic pumps, or acquisition of pump genes from external sources, all play a prominent role, often resulting in high levels of resistance. Examples of multicomponent efflux pumps, belonging mainly to the resistance-nodulation-division (RND) family members, found mostly in gram-negative bacteria, include the MDR pumps AcrAB-TolC and MexAB-OprM from E. coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Interplay between efflux pumps may provide either additive or multiplicative effects on drug resistance (A. Lee et al, J. of Bacteriology, 2000, 182:3142). MexAB-OprM, MexCD-OprJ, MexEF-OprN, MexXY-OprM, AcrAB-TolC, AcrEF, MarA, SoxS, or/and Tet pump/s are known to be present in Gram negative organisms such as P. aeruginosa and E. coli and are reviewed in recent publications and papers, such as K. K. Y. Wong et al, J. of Bacteriology, 2001, 183:367-374; K. Poole, Antimicrobial Agents and Chemother., 2000, 44:2233-2241; R Srikumar et al, Abstracts of the 40th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemother., 2000, Abstr. 441:74; Xi n Zhi Li et al, Journal of Antimicrob. Chemother., 2000, 45:433-436; Koronakis etal., Nature, 2000, 405:914- 919; M. Oethinger et al, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 2000, 44:10-13; W.V. Kern, et al, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 2000, 44:814-820; O. Lomovskaya, et al, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 1999, 43:1340-1346. Active efflux has been shown to be the primary or molecular mechanism of a fluoroquinolone resistance in Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium (E Giraud et al, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 2000, 44:1223-1228) and in P. aruginosa isolates from cystic fibrosis patients (S Jalal et al, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 2000, 44:710-712). Efflux mediated aminoglycoside and macrolide resistance in Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of meliodosis has been described in R. A. Moore et al, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 1999, 43:465-470.

Efflux transporters are also among different mechanisms responsible for the resistance to antibiotics displayed by gram-positive bacteria and mycobacteria, particularly aerobic gram- positive cocci. The multidrug transporter NorA, belonging to the major facilitator superfamily (MFS) transporters, contributes to the resistance of Staphylococcus aureus to fluoroquinolone antibiotics. A minireview describes effllux-mediated resistance to fluoroquinolones in Gram- positive bacteria and the mycobacteria (K. Poole, Antimicro. Agents and Chemother., 2000, 44: 2595-2599). To the MFS transporters also belong the Bmr and QacA/QacB efflux pumps of Gram-positive bacteria, and EmrB of E. coli (H. Nikaido, Current Opinion in Microbiology, 1: 516-523). A structure-based mechanism for drug binding by multidrug transporters is recently proposed using the BmrR protein from Bacillus subtilis and the multidrug transporter MdfA from E coli (E. E. Zheleznova et al, Trends in Biological Sciences 2000, 25:39-43), which mechanism is also putatively considered for the QacA/QacB efflux system of S. aureus. New MFS pumps include PmrA (a homolog of NorA) of Streptococcus ptieumoniae . Broskey et al, Journal of Antimicrob. Chemother., 2000, 45:SuppI. SI, 95-99; M.J. Gill etal, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 1999, 43:187-189) and Tap of Mycobacterium fortuitum and M. tuberculosis. Recently, NorM, which pumps out fluoroquinolones and some cationic agents was found to be outside the MFS transporter class. The role of membrane-fusion protein (MFP) structural homologues recently identified in low G + C Gram positive bacteria that lack an outer membrane, as essential transport accessory proteins with transporters of the ATP-Binding Cassette (ABC) superfamily has been described (K T Harley et al, Molecular Microbiol., 2000, 38:516-517).

The Mef efflux system mediates large fractions of erythromycin-resistant clinical isolates of S. pneumoniae (N. J. Johnston et al, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 1998, 42:2425; T. Nishijima et al, J. Antimicrob. Chemother., 1999, 43:637). Beta-haemolytic streptococci and pneumococci resistant to erythromycin due to the prsence of Mef A efflux pumps in Streptococcus pyogenes, Mef E pumps in S. pneumoniae, and an M phenotype bearing S. agalactiae possessing Mef A or Mef E pumps are found to be emergent and prevalent in Europe (C. Arpin et al, J. Antimicrob. Chemother., 1999, 44:133-138; E. Giovanetti et al, Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 1999, 43:1935-1940).

Efflux and drug resistance in fungi and protozoa have also been described (T. G. White et al., Clin Microbiol. Rev. 1998, 11:382; D. Sanglard, Drug Resistance Updates 1998, 1:255; B. Papadopoulou et al, Drug Resistance Updates 1998, 1: 266; E. Orozao et al, Drug Resistance Updates, 1999, 2:188).

In summary, the above discussion indicates that cellular factors affecting transport (both active and passive transport) of antibiotics into bacterial cells are important components of antibiotic resistance for many microbial species.

One strategy to target resistance mechanisms of microbial self-defense is to find inhibitors of microbial efflux pumps and, in particular of bacterial and fungal efflux pumps.

Patent WO 00/32196, with US priority in 60/110,841, discloses inhibitors of multidrug transport proteins which may be used in combination with existing antibacterial agents and/or antifungal agents, wherein the inhibitor is an indole or a urea or an aromatic amide or a quinoline, all of which inhibitors are unlike the efflux pump inhibitor compounds of the present invention. In addition, the inhibitors disclosed in patent WO 00/32196 are specifically inhibitors of bacteria expressing a norA pump, or a fungus expressing a multidrug transport protein.

Novel inhibitors of the NorA multidrug transporter of S. aureus having structurally diverse chemical structures were also described by P. N. Markham et al, (Antimicrob. Agents and Chemother., 1999, 43:2404), among which the more active compounds include (a) those containing an indole moiety like the previously known inhibitor, reserpine, (b) biphenyl urea derivatives, (c) a substituted pyrimidinone derivative and (d) compounds INF 240 and INF 277, but they are all unlike the efflux pump inhibitor compounds of the present invention.

Another inhibitor of the NorA MDR pump in a pathogenic S. aureus strain is 5'- methoxyhydnocarpin (F. R. Stermitz et al., Proc. New York Acad. of Sci., 2000, 97:1433), which has a structure unlike the efflux pump inhibitor compounds of the present invention.

Nocardamin, a cyclopeptide, was found to be a general antagonist of a tetracycline efflux pump from S. aureus. It has a structure unlike the efflux pump inhibitor compounds of the present invention. Minocycline and l,l-dimethyl-5-(l-hydroxypropyl)-4,6,7-trimethylindan (Ro 07-3149) inhibit the active tetracycline efflux pump in S. aureus 743 (T.Hirata et al., Biol Pharm Bull, 1998, 21:678). Both the compounds have a structure unlike the efflux pump inhibitor compounds of the present invention.

(±)-3-(2-chloro, 5-bromophenyl) ethyl-4-fluoropiperidine as an example of 3-arylpiperidines has recently been described as potentiator of existing antibacterial agents against E. coli (A. Thorarensen et al, Bioorg. and Medicinal Chem. Letters, 2001, 11:1903-1096). The 3- arylpiperidine compounds have a structure unlike the efflux pump inhibitor compounds of the present invention.

To our knowledge no drug-like organic molecule has been identified, described or proposed as an inhibitor of a Mef efflux pump.

Deficiencies abound in the efflux pump inhibitors disclosed in the art prior to our present invention.

Reserpine is not a usable compound for therapy because of its neurotoxicity at the concentration required for efflux pump inhibition.

The inhibitors of single drug and multidrug transporters such as the dipeptide amide, MC- 207,110, are broad in specificity, inhibiting all three RND systems of P. aeruginosa involved in fluoroquinolone efflux, but have not been shown to be effective against pumps of other strains, for instance a NorA pump. Moreover, the methods employed to demonstrate their efflux pump inhibitory properties are mainly in vitro methods. For demonstration of in vivo activity, recourse has had to be taken to parenteral administration ( cf. T.E.Renau et al, J.Med.Chem.,1999, 42, 4928), rather than oral administration, as it is generally known that oral bioavailability is poor for compounds of a peptidic nature.

The series of inhibitors described in WO 00/32196 and by Markham et al (vide infra) have been minimally and incompletely profiled in terms of their efficacy, safety and tolerability, which has yet to be demonstrated in in vivo models.

Potent inhibitors of microbial efflux pumps is thus an important goal for the improved control of infectious diseases, allowing a renaissance for drugs that are no longer effective owing to their efflux (K. Poole, Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, 2001, 53:283-294). The current inventors have synthesised, screened and identified novel inhibitors of cellular efflux pumps of microbes. Distinctive structural features characterise the different sets of efflux pump inhibitors for different microorganisms as will be described in the following description.

Illustrative of suitable acids are hydrochloric, hydrobromic, hydroiodic, sulphuric, sulfamic, sulfonic, phosphoric, acetic, lactic, succinic, oxalic, maleic, fumaric, malic, tartaric, citric, ascorbic, gluconic, benzoic, cinnamic, methanesulfonic and p-toluenesulfonic acid.

The pharmaceuticaUy acceptable cationic salts of compounds I may be prepared by conventional methods from the corresponding acids e.g. by reaction with about one equimolar amount of a base. Examples of suitable cationic salts are those of alkaU metals such as Uthium, sodium or potassium, alkaline earth metals such as magnesium or calcium or ammonium or organic amines such diethanolamine, N-methylglucamine, guanidine or heterocycUc amines such as choline, piperidine, N-methyl-4-hydroxypiperidine, hydroxyethylpyrrolidine, hydroxyethylpiperidine, morpholine, hydroxyethylmorphoUne, piperazine, N-methyl piperazine and the like or basic amino acids such as opticaUy pure or racemic isomers of arginine, lysine, histidine, tryptophan and the like.

The hydrates, pseudopolymorphs and polymorphs are prepared by methods known in the art. DetaUed descriptions of different methods to generate hydrates, solvates, pseudopolymorphs and polymorphs and to characterise them are described in chapters 5 and 6 of the book entitled "Polymorphism in Pharmaceutical SoUds" edited by Harry G Brittain (Marcel Dekker Inc., New York), pp. 183-278, 1999.

Particularly appropriate examples of a microbe appropriate for the use of an efflux pump inhibitor are pathogenic bacterial species, such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherischia coli, Staphylococcus aureus which can be intrinsically resistant to commonly used antibacterial agents. Exposing these bacteria to an efflux pump inhibitor can significantly slow the export of an antibacterial agent from the interior of the ceU or the export of siderophores. For instance, overexpression of the norA multidrug transporter has been reported for strains of S. aureus for fluoroquinolone resistance both in-vitro (Yoshida et. al., 1990; Kaatz etal., 1990) and in-vivo (Trucksis etal., 1991). Therefore, if another antibacterial agent is administered in conjunction with the efflux pump inhibitor, the antibacterial agent, which would otherwise be maintained at a very low intraceUular concentration by the export process, can accumulate to a concentration which wiU inhibit the growth of the bacterial cells. This growth inhibition can be due to either bacteriostatic or bactericidal activity, depending on the specific antibacterial agent used. Whde P. aeruginosa is an example of an appropriate bacterium, other bacterial and microbial species including those described above may contain simUar broad substrate pumps, which actively export a variety of antimicrobial agents, and thus can also be appropriate targets.

In addition as suggested above, for some microbial, e.g., bacterial, species, efflux pump inhibitors can decrease the virulence of the microbe, for example, by inhibiting the transport of factors important for pathogenicity. Again using P. aeruginosa as an example, inhibition of an efflux pump in this bacterium inhibits the uptake of iron, which is important for pathogenicity. The mechanism of bacterial iron transport involves molecules called siderophores, which are synthesised and exported by bacterial ceUs via efflux pumps. These siderophores bind tightly to iron scavenged from the host, and are then taken up by the bacteria. In this way, the iron needed for bacterial metaboUsm is obtained, and an infection can be maintained.

Therefore, iUustrating the utility of efflux pump inhibitors, inhibiting the efflux pump of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherischia coli, Staphylococcus aureus aUows obtaining one or more of the following biological effects:

1. Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherischia coli, Staphylococcus aureus strains wUl become susceptible to antibiotics that could not be used for treatment of the respective bacterial infections, or become more susceptible to antibiotics which do inhibit the respective bacterial growth.

2. Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherischia coli, Staphylococcus aureus strains will become more susceptible to antibiotics currently used for treatment of the respective bacterial infections.

3. Virulence of Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherischia coli, Staphylococcus aureus wiU be attenuated because the avaUabiUty of an essential siderephore bearing element wuT be hampered.

4. The inhibition of the pumps or of one of the components of the pumps may be lethal or prevent growth. Obtaining even one of these effects provides a potential therapeutic treatment for infections by these bacteria. Also, as previously mentioned, similar pumps are found in other microorganisms. Some or aU of the above effects can also be obtained with those microbes, and they are therefore also appropriate targets for detecting or using efflux pump inhibitors. Thus, the term "microbes" include, for example, bacteria, fungi, yeasts, and protozoa.

As indicated, the bacterium to be inhibited through the use of an efflux pump inhibitor can be from other bacterial groups or species, such bacterial groups of species including but not limited to one of the foUowing:

Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Pseudomonas acidovorans, Pseudomonas alcaligenes, Pseudomonas putida, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Burkholderia capacia, Aeromonas hydrophilia, Escherichia coli, Citrobacter freundil, Salmonella tryphimurium, Salmonella typhi, Salmonella paratyphi, Salmonella enteritidis, Shigella dysenteriae, Shigella flexneri, Shigella sonnei, Enterobacter cloacae, Enterobacter aerogenes, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Klebsiella oxytoca, Serratia, marcescens, Francisella tularensis, Morganella morganii, Proteus mirabilis, Proteus vulgaris, Providencia alcalifaciens, Providencia rettgeri, Providencia stuartii, Λcinetobacter calcoaceticus, Acinetobacter haemolyticus, Yersinia enterocolitica, Yersinia pestis, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, Yersinia intermedia, Bordetella pertussis, Bordetella parapertussis, Bordetella bronchiseptica, Haemophilus influenzae, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Haemophilus ducreyi, Pasteurella multocida, Pasteurella haemolytica, Branhamella catarrhalis, Helicobacter pylori, Campylobacter fetus,

Campylobacter jejuni, Campylobacter coli, Borrelia burgdorferi, Vibrio cholerae, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Legionella pneumophila, Listeria monocytogenes, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Neisseria meningiήdis, Kingella, Morazella, Gardenerella vaginalis, Bacteroides fragilis, Bacteroides distasonis, Bacteroides 3452A homology group, Bacteroides distasonis, Bacteroides ovalus, Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron, Bacteroides uniformis, Bacteroides eggerthii, Bacteroides splanchnicus, Clostridium difficile, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium avium, Mycobacterium intracellulare, Mycobacterium leprae, Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Corynebacterium ulcerans, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus pyogenes, Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Staphylococcus intermedius, Staphylococcus hyicus subsp. hyicus, Staphylococcus haemolyticus, Staphylococcus hominis and Staphylococcus saccharolyticus.

The term "efflux pump" refers to a protein assembly which exports substrate molecules from the cytoplasm or periplasm of a ceU, in an energy dependent fashion. Thus an efflux pump wiU typicaUy be located in the cytoplasmic membrane of the cell (spanning the cytoplasmic membrane). In Gram-negative bacteria the pump may span the periplasmic space and there may also be portion of the efflux pump which spans the outer membrane. Certain efflux pumps wiU include a polypeptide which has at least 50% amino acid sequence similarity with a polypeptide which is part of the P. aeruginosa mexA/mexB/oprM efflux pump or the efflux pump overexpressed by P.aeruginosa strain K385, or the efflux pump overexpressed by P. aeruginosa strain PAO40998E. Due to the described sequence similarity of a component polypeptide of the efflux pump, such an efflux pump is termed a P. aeruginosa-type efflux pump.

An "efflux pump inhibitor" is a compound which specifically interferes with the abflity of an efflux pump to export its normal substrate, or other compounds such as an antibiotic. The inhibitor may have intrinsic antimicrobial (e.g. antibacterial) activity of its own, but at least a significant portion of the relevant activity is due to the efflux pump inhibiting activity. Of particular interest in this invention, are compounds which inhibit the export or activity of efflux pumps which have a broad substrate range which includes antibacterial agents. The term Streptococcus pneumoniae-ty\>e efflux pump inhibitor refers to an efflux pump inhibitor which inhibits a Streptococcus pneumoniae-type efflux pump. The term "Pseudomonas aeruginosa- type efflux pump inhibitor" refers to an efflux pump inhibitor which inhibits a Pseudomonas aeruginosa-type efflux pump. The term "Escherischia coli-type efflux pump inhibitor" refers to an efflux pump inhibitor which inhibits an Escherischia coli -type efflux pump. The term "Staphylococcus aureus-type efflux pump inhibitor" refers to an efflux pump inhibitor which inhibits a Staphylococcus aureus -type efflux pump.

In another aspect, this invention provides a method for treating a microbial infection, e.g., a bacterial infection, in an animal by administering to an animal suffering from such an infection an efflux pump inhibitor as described above in an amount sufficient to reduce efflux pump activity.

In a preferred embodiment, the inhibitor is one which decreases the pathogenicity of the microbe. Such a decrease in pathogenicity can be obtained, for example, by interfering with essential bacterial element acquisition by inhibiting the transport of siderophores. The pathogenicity may also be reduced by reducing or eliminating the microbial products which cause tissue-damaging effects to the host. Other methods of reducing pathogenicity are, however, also within this aspect.

The host is an animal and may be, for example, chickens and turkeys, and in certain preferred embodiments in a mammal, e.g. a human.

In certain preferred embodiments, the microbial infection may be due to bacteria, which may, for example, be any of the bacterial species indicated above, but specificaUy including Streptococcus pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherischia coli, Staphylococcus aureus. In a related aspect, this invention provides a method of treating an animal suffering from a microbial infection by administering to the animal an efflux pump inhibitor in an amount sufficient to reduce efflux pump activity. In this aspect, the efflux pump inhibitor in one which reduces the in vivo viabdity of a microbe involved in the infection. By reducing the in vivo viabdity, the infected animal can more readUy clear its body of the infection, or the microbes may even be lulled. In particular embodiments the animal is a mammal. Also in particular embodiments, the microbe may be from one of a variety of pathogenic bacterial species, specificaUy including those Usted above.

The term "in vivo viabiUty" refers to the abUity of a microbe, e.g., a bacterium, to survive or grow in a host, such as an animal. Therefore, an efflux pump inhibitor which reduces the in vivo viability of a microbe may stop the growth of the microbe and/or kill the microbe. Such efflux pump inhibitors, therefore, are antimicrobial agents.

In a further related aspect, this invention includes a method for prophylactic treatment of an animal, e.g., a mammal. In this method, an efflux pump inhibitor which reduces the pathogenicity of a microbe is administered to a mammal at risk of a microbial infection, e.g., a bacterial infection.

In a related aspect, the invention provides a method for treating a microbial infection in an animal, specifically including in a mammal, by treating an animal suffering from such an infection with an antimicrobial agent and an efflux pump inhibitor which increases the susceptibUity of the microbe for that antimicrobial agent. In this way a microbe involved in the infection can be treated using the antimicrobial agent in smaUer quantities, or can be treated with an antimicrobial agent which is not therapeuticaUy effective when used in the absence of the efflux pump inhibitor.

Thus, this method of treatment is especially appropriate for the treatment of infections using an antimicrobial agent alone due to a need for high dosage levels (which can cause undesirable side effects), or due to lack of any cUnically effective antimicrobial agents. However, it is also appropriate for treating infections involving microbes which are susceptible to particular antimicrobial agents as a way to reduce the dosage of those particular agents. This can reduce the risk of side effects, but can also reduce the selection effect for highly resistant microbes resulting from the consistent high level use of a particular antimicrobial agent. In particular embodiment the microbe is a bacterium, which may, for example, be from any of the groups or species indicated above. Also in particular embodiments various antibacterial agents can be used. These include quinolones, tetracycUnes, glycopeptides, aminoglycosides, beta-lactams, rifamycins, coumermycins, macrolides, and chloramphenicol. In particular embodiments an antibiotic of the above classes can be, for example, one of the foUowing: Beta-Lactam Antibiotics

Each of the above compounds have been reported in the Uterature. Other antibiotic compounds which may be identified which are effluxed by particular bacteria can also be utilised with the efflux pump inhibitors of this invention.

In the context of the response of a microbe, such as a bacterium, to an antimicrobial agent, the term "susceptibiUty" refers to the sensitivity of the microbe for the presence of the antimicrobial agent So, to increase the susceptibiUty means that the microbe wUl be inhibited by a lower concentration of the antimicrobial agent in the medium surrounding the microbial ceUs. This is equivalent to saying that the microbe is more sensitive to the antimicrobial agent. In most cases the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of that antimicrobial agent wiU have been reduced.

As used herein, the term "treating" refers to administering a pharmaceutical composition for prophylactic and/or therapeutic purposes. The term "prophylactic treatment" refers to treating an organism such as a human patient, who is not yet infected, but who is susceptible to, or otherwise at risk of, a particular infection. The terms "susceptible" and "risk" do not refer to the status of organisms of that type generaUy, but rather refers to a significantly enhanced risk. Such risk may for example be due to a specific exposure to a particular potentially infective agent, to a generaUy weakened physical condition, or immune system deficiency. Preferably, for humans the enhanced risk is sufficient such that a prudent doctor familiar with the treatment of the potential infection would find prophylactic treatment medicaUy warranted. The term "microbial infection" refers to a disease state or some adverse condition^), such as the presence of a pathogenic microorganism in a body fluid like blood, urine, cerebrospinal or organ tissue, which are otherwise sterile or free of pathogenic microorganisms. The term "therapeutic treatment" refers to administering treatment to a patient already suffering from an infection. Thus, in preferred embodiments, treating is the administration to a mammal (either for therapeutic or prophylactic purposes) of therapeutically effective amounts of a potentiator and an antibacterial (or antimicrobial) agent in combination (either simultaneously or seriaUy). The term "potentiator" refers to a compound such as an efflux pump inhibitor which has the abiUty to increase the concentration of existing antibiotics in a microbial cell.

By "therapeutically effective amount" or "pharmaceuticaUy effective amount" is meant an amount of an efflux pump inhibitor, or amounts individually of an efflux pump inhibitor and an antimicrobial agent, as disclosed for this invention, which have a therapeutic effect, which generaUy refers to the inhibition to some extent of the normal metaboUsm of microbial cells causing or contributing to a microbial infection. The doses of efflux pump inhibitor and antimicrobial agent which are useful in combination as a treatment are therapeuticaUy effective amounts. Thus, as used herein, a therapeuticaUy effective amount means those amounts of efflux pump inhibitor and antimicrobial agent which, when used in combination, produce the desired therapeutic effect as judged by cUnical trial results and/or model animal infection studies. In particular embodiments, the efflux pump inhibitor and antimicrobial agent are combined in predetermined proportions and thus a therapeutically effective amount would be an amount of the combination. This amount and the amount of the efflux pump inhibitor and antimicrobial agent individually can be routinely determined by one of skill in the art, and wiU vary, depending on several factors, such as the particular microbial strain involved and the particular efflux pump inhibitor and antimicrobial agent used. This amount can further depend upon the patient's height, weight, sex, age and medical history. For prophylactic treatments, a therapeuticaUy effective amount is that amount which would be effective if a microbial infection existed.

A therapeutic effect reUeves, to some extent, one or more of the symptoms of the infection, and includes curing an infection. "Curing" means that the symptoms of active infections are eliminated, including the elimination of excessive numbers of viable microbes of those involved in the infection. However, certain long-term or permanent effects of the infection may exist even after a cure is obtained (such as extensive tissue damage).

The term "microbial infection" refers to the invasion of the host mammal by pathogenic microbes. This includes the excessive growth of microbes which are normaUy present in or on the body of a mammal. More generaUy, a microbial infection can be any situation in which the presence of a microbial population(s) is damaging to a host mammal. Thus, a mammal is "suffering" from a microbial infection when excessive numbers of a microbial population are present in or on a mammal's body, or when the effects of the presence of a microbial population (s) is damaging the ceUs or other tissue of a mammal. SpecificaUy, this description applies to a bacterial infection.

The term "administration" or "administering" refers to a method of giving a dosage of an antimicrobial pharmaceutical composition to a mammal, where the method is, e.g., topical, oral, intravenous, intraperitoneal, or intramuscular. The preferred method of administration can vary depending on various factors e.g., the components of the pharmaceutical composition, the site of the potential or actual bacterial infection, the microbe involved, and the severity of an actual microbial infection. The term "mammal" is used in its usual biological sense. Thus, it specifically includes humans, cattle, horses, dogs, and cats, but also includes many other species.

This invention also features a method of enhancing the antimicrobial activity of an antimicrobial agent against a microbe, in which such a microbe is contacted with an efflux pump inhibitor, e.g., a non-tetracycline specific efflux pump inhibitor, to an efflux pump in the cell, and an antibacterial agent. The efflux pump inhibitor is a compound as described above. Thus, this method makes an antimicrobial agent more effective against a ceU which expresses an efflux pump when the ceU is treated with the combination of an antimicrobial agent and efflux pump inhibitor. In particular embodiments the microbe is a bacterium or a fungus, such as any of those described above; the antibacterial agent can be selected from a number of structural classes of antibiotics including, e.g., beta-lactams, glycopeptides, aminoglycosides, quinolones, tetracycUnes, rifamycins, coumermycins, macroUdes, and chloramphenicol. In particular embodiments an antibiotic of the above classes can be as stated above.

In a further aspect this invention provides pharmaceutical compositions effective for treatment of an infection of an animal, e.g., a mammal, by a microbe, such as a bacterium or a fungus. The composition includes a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier and an efflux pump inhibitor as described above. In preferred embodiments, such compositions contain efflux pump inhibitors, which are themselves effective antimicrobial agents, even in the absence of another antimicrobial agent (i.e., have intrinsic antimicrobial activity). Thus, pharmaceutical composition including such efflux pump inhibitors can be used either alone or in conjunction with another antimicrobial agent. Also in preferred embodiments, the efflux pump inhibitors in pharmaceutical compositions of this aspect are efflux pump inhibitors which enhance the effectiveness of an antimicrobial agent other than the efflux pump inhibitor, so such compositions would generaUy be used in combination with such other antimicrobial agent. The invention also provides pharmaceutical compositions similarly effective for treatment of an infection of a mammal which include an efflux pump inhibitor and an antimicrobial agent. SimUarly, the invention provides antimicrobial formulations which include an antimicrobial agent, an efflux pump inhibitor, and a carrier. In preferred embodiments, the antimicrobial agent is an antibacterial agent.

A "carrier" or "excipient" is a compound or material used to facUitate administration of the compound, for example, to increase the solubUity of the compound. SoUd carriers include, e.g., starch, lactose, dicalcium phosphate, sucrose, and kaoUn. Liquid carriers include, e.g., sterUe water, saUne, buffers, non-ionic surfactants, and edible oils such as oil, peanut and sesame oils. In addition, various adjuvants such as are commonly used in the art may be included. These and other such compounds are described in the literature, e.g., in the Merck Index, Merck & Company, Rahway, NJ. Considerations for the inclusion of various components in pharmaceutical compositions are described, e.g., in Gilman et al. (Eds.) (1990); Goodman and Gilman's: The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th Ed., Pergamon Press.

In yet another aspect, the invention provides a method of suppressing growth of a microbe, e.g., a bacterium, expressing an efflux pump, e.g., a non-tetracycUne-specific efflux pump. As illustrated by the case where the microbe is a bacterium, the method involves containing that bacterium with an efflux pump inhibitor, e.g., a non-tetracycline-specific efflux pump inhibitor, in the presence of a concentration of antibacterial agent below the MIC of the bacterium. This method is useful, for example, to prevent or cure contamination of a ceU culture by a bacterium possessing an efflux pump. However, it applies to any situation where such growth suppression is desirable.

In another related aspect, the invention provides a method for reducing a population of a microbe, e.g., a bacterial strain, involving contacting the population with an efflux pump inhibitor which inhibits a component of an efflux pump expressed in the microbe in that population, which is essential for the growth of the microbe expressing that efflux pump. In particular embodiments, that component is cytoplasmic membrane component. As indicated above, such efflux pump inhibitors may act in various ways, including, but not limited to, acting directly on the essential component, or acting to inhibit the expression of that component.

The term "reducing a population" means that the microbes of that population are being killed. This is distinguished from the action of a static agent, e.g., a bacteriostatic agent, which prevents the bacteria from growing and multiplying but does not kiU the microbes. Accordingly, in the context of this aspect, an "essential component" of an efflux pump is one which is essential to the in vivo survival of the microbe, i.e., the survival in a host.

In yet another aspect, this invention provides a method for enhancing growth of an animal by administering an efflux pump inhibitor to the animal, which inhibits an efflux pump expressed in a bacterial strain in the animal, and which inhibits the growth of the bacterial strain. Such a growth enhancing effect may result from the reduced energy consumption by the bacteria, which increases the food energy available to the animal. This method is appropriate, for example, for use with cattle, swine, and fowl such as chickens and turkeys.

In an additional aspect, the invention provides novel compounds having efflux pump activity. These compounds have chemical structures as described above. As indicated above, while the present invention is presently exemplified by activity against bacteria, compounds of the present invention also have activity against other microbes, for example against yeasts and/or other fungi. Thus, the above aspects also include embodiments in which described compounds are active or effective against such other microbes.

In further aspect, the invention provides a method of making a pharmaceutical composition comprising the steps of identifying an efflux pump inhibitor having a chemical structure of the formula I; synthesizing said efflux pump inhibitor and preparing a pharmaceutical composition containing said efflux pump inhibitor. The efflux pump inhibitor may have the chemical structure as described above. The pharmaceutical composition may also contain one or more antimicrobial agents, e.g., as identified above, and one or more carriers, dUuents, and excipients. Further, in preferred embodiments, the efflux inhibitor compound is active against a microbe, e.g., a bacterium, as identified above.

Identification of Efflux Pump Inhibitors

Identification of efflux pump inhibitors having structures as described for the present invention was performed using screening methods known to those skilled in the art of biological techniques and are described in detail below. In particular, the screening method based on inhibition of microbial growth in the presence of a subinhibitory concentration of an antibacterial agent which is normally effluxed by the test microbe and a concentration of a test compound was used for identifying some of the active compounds disclosed herein. In this method, inhibition of growth of the microbe is indicative that export of the antibacterial agent is inhibited by the test compound, and that the test compound is therefore an efflux pump inhibitor. The mode of action of the test compound so identified can then be confirmed as inhibiting active efflux. However, other screening methods for detecting efflux pump inhibitors can also be used.

Synthesis of Derivatives of Efflux Pump Inhibitors from Screening

The inventors have screened a Ubrary of synthetic chemicals and identified several compounds that effectively inhibit the respective efflux pumps of Staphylococcus aureus 1199B NorA*, Streptococcus pneumoniae 3514, Pseudomonas aeruginosa 23587, Escherischia coli 2051. Some of these compounds were found to be also effective against presently unidentified multidrug transporters of other microorganisms. The library of compounds was obtained by synthesis according to methods as described in our copending applications PCT appUcation PCT/IN99/00016, US appUcations 09/566,875, 09/640,947, and 09/850,669 and by methodologies described in a later section below.

Exemplary compounds of the present invention were synthesised by methods as described in the examples below. Those skilled in the art will understand how to synthesise additional compounds within the scope of this invention based on the described syntheses and the knowledge of those skilled in the art of chemical synthesis.

The foUowing examples illustrate methods of screening, which have led to the identification of efflux pump inhibitors. They, however, do not Umit the scope of methods that can be used for screening or the kinds of efflux pump inhibitors that can be found by such varied methods.

Screening of Efflux Pump Inhibitors - In-vivo

Inhibitors of the bacterial efflux pumps are generaUy initially characterised in vitro. Those which show effective inhibition of the pump(s) and which show synergistic activity with antibiotics are selected for evaluation in vivo. Efficacy testing wUl be done using standard procedures. Primary efficacy evaluation may be done using the murine septicemia model (M.G. Bergeron, 1978, Scand. J. Infect. Dis. Suppl. 14:189-206; S.D. Davis, 1975, Antimicrob. Agents Chemother. 8:50-53). In this model a supra-lethal dose of bacteria is used to chaUenge the rodents. Treatment is initiated, varying either or both time(s) of treatment and dose of antibiotic. In these experiments both the antibiotic and the efflux pump inhibitor doses are varied. A positive result is indicated by significant increase in protection from the lethal infection by the combination of the potentiator (the efflux pump inhibitor) and the antibiotic versus the antibiotic alone.

A second efficacy model which is used is the mouse soft tissue infection model (Vogelman etal. 1988, J. Infect. Dis. 157:287-298). In this model anaesthetised mice are infected with an appropriate titer of bacteria in the muscle of the hind thigh. Mice are either neutropenic (cyclophosphamide treated at 125 mg/kg on days -4, -2, and 0) or immunocompetent. The infecting dose is commonly 10s - 106 colony forming units per animal. Treatment with the combination of the efflux pump inhibitor and/or antibiotics foUows infection, or can occur before infection. The proliferation (or death) of the bacteria within the thigh muscle is monitored over time. Effective combinations show greater activity than the antibiotic alone. Activity is defined as reduction in growth rate of the test bacteria in the murine tissue. Pharmaceutical Compositions and Modes of Administration

The particular compound that is an efflux pump inhibitor can be administered to a patient either by itself, or in combination with an antimicrobial, e.g., antibacterial, agent, or in pharmaceutical compositions where it is mixed with a suitable carrier(s) or excipient(s) or diluent(s). A combination of an efflux pump inhibitor with an antimicrobial agent can be of at least two different types. In one, a quantity of an efflux pump inhibitor is combined with a quantity of an antimicrobial agent in a mixture, e.g., in a solution or powder mixture. In such mixtures, the relative quantities of the inhibitor and the antimicrobial agent may be varied as appropriate for the speciflc combination and expected treatment. In a second type of combination an inhibitor and an antimicrobial agent can be covalently linked in such manner that the Unked molecules can be cleaved within the ceU. However, the term "in combination" can also refer to other possibilities, including serial administration of an inhibitor and other antimicrobial agent. In addition, an efflux pump inhibitor and/or another antimicrobial agent may be administered in pro-drug forms, i.e. the compound is administered in a form which is modified within the ceU to produce the functional form. In treating a patient exhibiting a disorder of interest, a therapeuticaUy effective amount of an agent or agents such as these is administered. A therapeutically effective dose refers to that amount of the compound(s) that results in amelioration of symptoms or a prolongation of survival in a patient, and may include eUmination of a microbial infection.

Toxicity and therapeutic efficacy of such compounds can be determined by standard pharmaceutical procedures in ceU cultures or experimental animals, e.g., for determining the LD50 (the dose lethal to 50% of the population) and the ED50 (the dose therapeutically effective in 50% of the population). The dose ratio between toxic and therapeutic effects is the therapeutic index and it can be expressed as the ratio LD50/ ED50. Compounds which exhibit large therapeutic indices are preferred. The data obtained from these cell culture assays and animal studies can be used in formulating a range of dosage for use in human. The dosage of such compounds Ues preferably within a range of circulating concentrations that include the ED50 with Uttle or no toxicity. The dosage may vary within this range depending upon the dosage and dosage form employed and the route of administration utiUsed. It is preferable that the therapeutic serum concentration of an efflux pump inhibitor should be in the range of 0.1-100 mcg/ml, more preferably 0.1 - 50 mcg/ml, even more preferably 0.1 - 20 mcg/ml, even more preferably 1.0- 50 mcg./ml or most preferably 1.0 - 20 mcg/ml.

For any compounds used in the method of the invention, the therapeuticaUy effective dose can be estimated initiaUy from ceU culture assays. For example, a dose can be formulated in animal models to achieve a circulating plasma concentration range that includes the IC50 as determined in cell culture. Such information can be used to more accurately determine useful dosage in humans. Levels in plams may be measured, e.g. by HPLC.

In particular preferred embodiments, the efflux inhibitor in a pharmaceutical composition has a structure as shown by the generic structures described above.

The exact formulation, route of administration and dosage can be chosen by the individual physician in view of the patients condition. (See e.g. Fingl etal., in The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 1975, Ch.l, p.l). It should be noted that the attending physician would know how and when to terminate, interrupt or adjust administration due to toxicity, or to organ dysfunctions. Conversely, the attending physician would also know to adjust treatment to higher levels if the cUnical response were not adequate, (precluding toxicity). The severity of the condition may, for example, be evaluated, in part, by standard prognostic evaluation methods. Further, the does and perhaps dose frequency wdl also vary according to the age, body weight and response of the individual patient. A programme comparable to that discussed above may be used in veterinary medicine.

Depending on the specific infection being treated, such agents may be formulated and administered systemicaUy or locally. Techniques for formulation and administration may be found in Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences, 19th ed., Mack PubUshing Co., Easton, Pa. (1990). Suitable routes may include oral, rectal, transdermal, vaginal, transmucosal, or intestinal administration; parentral deUvery, including intramuscular, subcutaneous, intramedullary, injections, as well as intrathecal, direct intraventricular, intravenous, intraperitonial, intranesal, or intraocular injections just to name a few.

The pharmaceutical compositions are prepared according to conventional procedures used by persons skilled in the art to make stable and effective compositions. In the soUd, Uquid, parenteral and topical dosage forms, an effective amount of the active compound or the active ingredient is any amount, which produces the desired results.

For the purpose of this invention the pharmaceutical compositions may contain the active compounds of the invention, their derivatives, salts or hydrates thereof, in a form to be administered alone, but generaUy in a form to be administered in admixture with a pharmaceutical carrier selected with regard to the intended route of administration and standard pharmaceutical practice. Suitable carriers which can be used are, for example, diluents or excipients such as fiUers, extenders, binders, emollients, wetting agents, disintegrants, surface active agents and lubricants which are usually employed to prepare such drugs depending on the type of dosage form.

Any suitable route of administration may be employed for providing the patient with an effective dosage of the compound of the invention, their derivatives, salts or hydrates thereof. For example, oral, rectal, parenteral (subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous), transdermal, topical and Uke forms of administration may be employed. Dosage forms include (solutions, suspensions, etc) tablets, piUs, powders, troches, dispersions, suspensions, emulsions, solutions, capsules, injectable preparations, patches, ointments, creams, lotions, shampoos and the like.

Pharmaceutical compositions of the present invention suitable for oral administration may be presented as discrete units such as capsules, cachets, or tablets, or aerosol sprays, each containing a predetermined amount of the active ingredient, as a powder or granules, or as a solution or a suspension in an aqueous liquid, a non-aqueous liquid, an oil-in-water emulsion, or a water-in-oU liquid emulsion. Such compositions may be prepared by any of the methods of pharmacy, but aU methods include the step of bringing into association the active ingredient with the carrier which constitutes one or more necessary ingredients. In general, the compositions are prepared by uniformly and intimately admixing the active ingredient with Uquid carriers or finely divided solid carriers or both, and then, if necessary, shaping the product into the desired presentation.

The compositions of the present invention include compositions such as suspensions, solutions, elixirs, aerosols, and solid dosage forms. Carriers as described in general above are commonly used in the case of oral soUd preparations (such as powders, capsules and tablets), with the oral soUd preparations being preferred over the oral liquid preparations. The most preferred oral soUd preparation is tablets.

Because of their ease of administration, tablets and capsules represent the most advantageous oral dosage unit form, in which case solid pharmaceutical carriers are employed. Examples of suitable carriers include excipients such as lactose, white sugar, sodium chloride, glucose solution, urea, starch, calcium carbonate, kaolin, crystalUne ceUulose and sUicic acid, binders such as water, ethanol, propanol, simple syrup, glucose, starch solution, gelatine solution, carboxymethyl cellulose, shellac, methyl ceUulose, potassium phosphate and polyvinyl pyrroUdone, disintegrants such as dried starch, sodium alginate, agar powder, laminaria powder, sodium hydrogen carbonate, calcium carbonate, Tween (fatty acid ester of polyoxyethylenesorbitan), sodium lauryl sulfate, stearic acid monoglyceride, starch, and lactose, disintegration inhibitors such as white sugar, stearic acid glyceryl ester, cacao butter and hydrogenated oils, absorption promoters such as quaternary ammonium bases and sodium lauryl sulfate, humectants such as glycerol and starch, absorbents such as starch, lactose, kaolin, bentonite and colloidal silicic acid, and lubricants such as purified talc, stearic acid salts, boric acid powder, polyethylene glycol and soUd polyethylene glycol.

The tablet, if desired, can be coated, and made into sugar-coated tablets, gelatine-coated tablets, enteric-coated tablets, film-coated tablets, or tablets comprising two or more layers. If desired, tablets may be coated by standard aqueous or nonaqueous techniques.

In moulding the pharmaceutical composition into piUs, a wide variety of conventional carriers known in the art can be used. Examples of suitable carriers are excipients such as glucose, lactose, starch, cacao butter, hardened vegetable oils, kaoUn and talc, binders such as gum arabic powder, tragacanth powder, gelatin, and ethanol, and disintegrants such as laminaria and agar.

In molding the pharmaceutical composition into a suppository form, a wide variety of carriers known in the art can be used. Examples of suitable carriers include polyethylene glycol, cacao butter, higher alcohols, gelatine, and semi-synthetic glycerides.

A second preferred method of administration is parenteraUy for intramuscular, intravenous or subcutaneous administration.

A third preferred route of administration is topicaUy, for which creams, ointments, shampoos, lotions, dusting powders and the like are well suited.

In addition to the common dosage forms set out above, the compounds of the present invention may also be administered by controlled release means and/or delivery devices such as those described in U S Patent Nos. 3,845,770; 3,916,899; 3,536,809; 3,598,123 and 4,008,719; the disclosures of which are hereby incorporated by reference.

When the pharmaceutical composition is formulated into an injectable preparation, in formulating the pharmaceutical composition into the form of a solution or suspension, aU diluents customarUy used in the art can be used. Examples of suitable diluents are water, ethyl alcohol, polypropylene glycol, ethoxylated isostearyl alcohol, polyoxyethylene sorbitol, and sorbitan esters. Sodium chloride, glucose or glycerol may be incorporated into a therapeutic agent. The antimicrobial pharmaceutical composition may further contain ordinary dissolving aids, buffers, pain-aUeviating agents, and preservatives, and optionaUy colouring agents, perfumes, flavours, sweeteners, and other drugs.

For topical application, there are employed as non-sprayable forms, viscous to semi-soUd or soUd forms comprising a carrier compatible with topical application and having a dynamic viscosity preferably greater than water. Suitable formulations include but are not Umited to solutions, suspensions, emulsions, creams, ointments, powders, Uniments, salves, aerosols, etc., which are, if desired, steriUzed or mixed with auxiUary agents, e.g. preservatives, antioxidants, stabUizers, wetting agents, buffers or salts for influencing osmotic pressure, etc. For topical application, also suitable are sprayable aerosol preparations wherein the active ingredient preferably in combination with a soUd or liquid inert carrier material.

It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that many modifications, both to materials and methods may be practised without departing from the purpose and scope of this invention.

Susceptibility Testing

Particular exemplary efflux pump inhibitor compounds within the generic descriptions of the compounds of this invention were evaluated for potentiation effect. The in vitro microbiological data for antibiotic potentiation is presented in Tables 1 - 5.

Testing method for inhibition of the efflux pump of Staphylococcus aureus 1199B NorA+

Compounds disclosed herein were studied for potentiation effect by determining the Fractional Inhibition Concentration (FIC) index of compounds and ciprofloxacin. Potentiation effect is observed by the reduction of minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of ciprofloxacin in the presence of the experimental efflux pump inhibitor. The activity of an efflux pump inhibitor in combination with a fluoroquinolone such as ciprofloxacin is assessed by the checkerboard assay and the FIC index was calculated. An FIC index value of ≤ 0.5 is synergistic, of 0.5 - 2.0 is additive and > 2.0 is antagonistic (Antimicrobial Combination In Antibiotics in Laboratory Medicine, Ed. Victor Lorian, MD, Fourth edition 1996, pp 333-338).

In short, the assay involves broth microdilution method performed as recommended by the National Committee for CUnical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) 1997 (Methods for Dilution of Antimicrobial Susceptibility Tests for Bacteria that Grow AerobicaUy, Fourth edition; Approved

Standard, NCCLS document M7-A4, vol. 17, No.2). The test organism used for the assay is Staphylococcus aureus 1199 B NorA+.

In this assay, multiple dilution of two drugs viz. the experimental efflux pump inhibitor and ciprofloxacin are being tested, alone and in combination, at concentrations equal to above and below the respective MICs. In the case of the efflux pump inhibitors of the invention, a number of compounds display intrinsic antimicrobial activity, but are tested at sub-MIC concentrations of 4 meg - 20 mcg/ml.

Stock solutions of the efflux pump inhibitors tested are prepared in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) at a final concentration of 5 mg/ml. Stock solutions are further dUuted in Mueller Hinton Broth as per the need of the assay. Ciprofloxacin is dissolved in water.

The checkerboard assay is performed in microtiter plates. Ciprofloxacin is diluted in the X-axis, each column containing a single concentration of ciprofloxacin. The efflux pump inhibitor is diluted in the Y-axis, each row containing an equal concentration of efflux pump inhibitor. The result of these manipulations is that each well of the microtiter plate contains a unique combination of concentrations of the two agents. Bacterial inoculum is added at 5 x 10s CFU/ml. Microtiter plates are incubated at 35°C for 20 hours. Reading is done by visibly noting turbidity and confirmed using a microtiter plate reader (Molecular Devices). The FIC index is calculated as

(A) (B) + = FICA + FICB = FIC Index

(MICA) (MICB)

(A) is the concentration of the experimental efflux pump inhibitor in the weU that is the lowest inhibitory concentration in the Y-axis. (MIC A) is the MIC of Staphylococcus aureus to experimental efflux pump inhibitor alone. FICA is the fractional inhibitory concentration of an experimental efflux pump inhibitor. (B) is the concentration of the ciprofloxacin in the weU that is the lowest inhibitory concentration in the X-axis. FICB is the fractional inhibitory concentration of ciprofloxacin. (Antimicrobial Combination In Antibiotics in Laboratory Medicine, Ed. Victor Lorian, MD, Fourth edition 1996, pp 333-338).

Testing method for inhibition of the efflux pumps of Pseudomonas aeruginosa 23587, E.coli 2051, Streptococcus pneumoniae 3514 and Streptococcus pyogenus 26-00

Antibiotic Diffusion Assay

The activity of efflux pump inhibitor was also assessed using an antibiotic diffusion assay. For this assay Pseudomonas aeruginosa 23587 is used. Pseudomonas aeruginosa 23587 is a cUnical isolate containing multiple efflux pumps which can be mexAB, mexCD, mexEF but not Umited to mex classification only. Pseudomonas aeruginosa are grown in tryptic soya broth for 20 hours at 35°C. Two antibiotic assay plates are prepared in Mueller Hinton Agar using above inoculum. The bacterial count in a plate is 1 x 106 ceUs/ml. In one of the plates, levofloxacin is incorporated at 5 mcg/ml, whUe in the control plate an equivalent amount of water is added. An experimental efflux pump inhibitor is evaluated by adding a series of concentrations of the test compound ranging from 0.025 meg to 200 mcg./well in agar plate. The plates are incubated at 35°C for 20 hours and the zone of inhibition was recorded in mm (table 2). The difference in the diameter of zone of inhibition was calculated by subtracting from the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the levofloxacin containing plate the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the water containing control plate. Example, if the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the levofloxacin plate is X mm and the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the control plate is Y mm, the difference Z = X - Y and is a measure of the activity of the efflux pump inhibitor.

The activity of an efflux pump inhibitor of E.coli 2051 was also assessed using an antibiotic diffusion assay. For this assay Exoli 2051 is used. E.coli 2051 is a clinical isolate containing multiple efflux pumps. E.coli 2051 are grown in tryptic soya broth for 20 hours at 35°C. Two antibiotic assay plates are prepared in Mueller Hinton Agar using above inoculum. The bacterial count in a plate is 1 x 106 cells/ml. In one of the plates, levofloxacin is incorporated at 15 mcg/ml, whUe in the control plate an equivalent amount of water is added. An experimental efflux pump inhibitor is evaluated by adding a series of concentrations of the test compound ranging from 0.025 meg to 200 mcg./well in agar plate. The plates are incubated at 35°C for 20 hours and the zone of inhibition was recorded in mm (table 3) . The difference in the diameter of zone of inhibition was calculated by subtracting from the zone of inhibition in the levofloxacin containing plate the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the control plate.

To detect the macroUde efflux pump (Mef) inhibitor, Streptococcus pneumoniae 3514 (Mef+) is used which was obtained from the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), Atlanta. A simUar 2 plate assay method as described above is used with small modifications. Streptococcus pneumoniae 3514 (Mef+) is grown in Columbia blood agar for 18 hours at 25°C. The growth was suspended in sterile todd hewitt broth and CFU were adjusted using macfarland's standard to 1 x 10s CFU/ml. 0.5 ml of this is added to the MueUer Hinton agar supplemented with 5% sheep blood, final bacterial count was 106 ceUs/ml. In one of the two plates 0.5 mcg/ml azithromycin is incorporated and to the control plate an equivalent amount of water is added. The plates are incubated at 35°C for 20 hours and the zone of inhibition was recorded in mm (table 4). The difference in the diameter of zone of inhibition was calculated by subtracting from the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the azithromycin containing plate the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the control plate.

To detect the macroUde efflux pump (Mef) inhibitor, Streptococcus pyogenus 26-00 is used which was obtained from the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), Atlanta. A similar 2 plate assay method as described above is used with small modifications. Streptococcus pyogenus 26-00 (Mef+) is grown in Columbia blood agar for 18 hours at 25°C. The growth was suspended in sterUe todd hewitt broth and CFU were adjusted using macfarland's standard to 1 x 10s CFU/ml. 0.5 ml of this is added to the Mueller Hinton agar supplemented with 5% sheep blood, final bacterial count was 106 ceUs/ml. In one of the two plates 0.5 mcg/ml azithromycin is incorporated and to the control plate an equivalent amount of water is added. The plates are incubated at 35°C for 20 hours and the zone of inhibition was recorded in mm (table 4). The difference in the diameter of zone of inhibition was calculated by subtracting from the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the azithromycin containing plate the diameter of the zone of inhibition in the control plate.
