Definitions

  • the present invention relates to indole derivatives, compositions comprising such compounds, and methods of treating conditions and disorders using such compounds and compositions.
  • CBi receptors are highly expressed in the central nervous system and to a lesser degree in the periphery in a variety of tissues of the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems.
  • CB 2 receptors are most abundantly expressed in multiple lymphoid organs and cells of the immune system, including spleen, thymus, tonsils, bone marrow, pancreas and mast cells.
  • CB CB 2 -selective modulators
  • CB 2 -selective modulators are analgesic in preclinical models of nociceptive and neuropathic pain without causing the adverse side effects associated with CBi receptor activation. Therefore, compounds that selectively target CB 2 receptors are an attractive approach for the development of novel analgesics.
  • Nociceptive pain is the most well known type of pain, and is caused by tissue injury detected by nociceptors at the site of injury. After the injury, the site becomes a source of ongoing pain and tenderness. This pain and tenderness are considered “acute" nociceptive pain. This pain and tenderness gradually diminish as healing progresses and disappear when healing is complete. Examples of acute nociceptive pain include surgical procedures (post-op pain) and bone fractures. Even though there may be no permanent nerve damage, "chronic" nociceptive pain results from some conditions when pain extends beyond six months. Examples of chronic nociceptive pain include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and musculoskeletal conditions (e.g., back pain), cancer pain, etc.
  • Neuropathic pain is defined as "pain initiated or caused by a primary lesion or dysfunction in the nervous system" by the International Association for the Study of Pain. Neuropathic pain is not associated with nociceptive stimulation, although the passage of nerve impulses that is ultimately perceived as pain by the brain is the same in both nociceptive and neuropathic pain.
  • the term neuropathic pain encompasses a wide range of pain syndromes of diverse etiologies. The three most commonly diagnosed pain types of neuropathic nature are diabetic neuropathy, cancer neuropathy, and HIV pain.
  • neuropathic pain is diagnosed in patients with a wide range of other disorders, including trigeminal neuralgia, post-herpetic neuralgia, traumatic neuralgia, phantom limb, as well as a number of other disorders of ill-defined or unknown origin.
  • Managing the spectrum of pain etiologies remains a major public health problem and both patients and clinicians are seeking improved strategies to effectively manage pain.
  • No currently available therapies or drugs effectively treat all types of nociceptive and neuropathic pain states.
  • the compounds of the present invention are novel CB 2 receptor modulators that have utility in treating pain, including nociceptive and neuropathic pain.
  • the location of CB 2 receptors on the surface of immune cells suggests a role for these receptors in immunomodulation and inflammation.
  • Recent studies have demonstrated that CB 2 receptor ligands have immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, compounds that selectively interact with CB 2 receptors offer a unique pharmacotherapy for the treatment of immune and inflammatory disorders.

Description

3 -CYCLOALKYLCARBONYL INDOLES ASCANNABINOID RECEPTOR LIGANDS
TECHNICAL FIELD
The present invention relates to indole derivatives, compositions comprising such compounds, and methods of treating conditions and disorders using such compounds and compositions.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
(-)-Δ9 -Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC), the major psychoactive constituent of marijuana, exerts a broad range of therapeutic effects through its interactions with two cannabinoid (CB) receptor subtypes, CBi and CB2. CBi receptors are highly expressed in the central nervous system and to a lesser degree in the periphery in a variety of tissues of the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems. By contrast, CB2 receptors are most abundantly expressed in multiple lymphoid organs and cells of the immune system, including spleen, thymus, tonsils, bone marrow, pancreas and mast cells.
The psychotropic side effects caused by Δ9-THC and other nonselective CB agonists are mediated by CB) receptors. These CBi receptor-mediated effects, such as euphoria, sedation, hypothermia, catalepsy, and anxiety, have limited the development and clinical utility of nonselective CB agonists. Recent studies have demonstrated that CB2-selective modulators are analgesic in preclinical models of nociceptive and neuropathic pain without causing the adverse side effects associated with CBi receptor activation. Therefore, compounds that selectively target CB2 receptors are an attractive approach for the development of novel analgesics.
Pain is the most common symptom of disease and the most frequent complaint with which patients present to physicians. Pain is commonly segmented by duration (acute vs. chronic), intensity (mild, moderate, and severe), and type (nociceptive vs. neuropathic).
Nociceptive pain is the most well known type of pain, and is caused by tissue injury detected by nociceptors at the site of injury. After the injury, the site becomes a source of ongoing pain and tenderness. This pain and tenderness are considered "acute" nociceptive pain. This pain and tenderness gradually diminish as healing progresses and disappear when healing is complete. Examples of acute nociceptive pain include surgical procedures (post-op pain) and bone fractures. Even though there may be no permanent nerve damage, "chronic" nociceptive pain results from some conditions when pain extends beyond six months. Examples of chronic nociceptive pain include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and musculoskeletal conditions (e.g., back pain), cancer pain, etc. Neuropathic pain is defined as "pain initiated or caused by a primary lesion or dysfunction in the nervous system" by the International Association for the Study of Pain. Neuropathic pain is not associated with nociceptive stimulation, although the passage of nerve impulses that is ultimately perceived as pain by the brain is the same in both nociceptive and neuropathic pain. The term neuropathic pain encompasses a wide range of pain syndromes of diverse etiologies. The three most commonly diagnosed pain types of neuropathic nature are diabetic neuropathy, cancer neuropathy, and HIV pain. In addition, neuropathic pain is diagnosed in patients with a wide range of other disorders, including trigeminal neuralgia, post-herpetic neuralgia, traumatic neuralgia, phantom limb, as well as a number of other disorders of ill-defined or unknown origin. Managing the spectrum of pain etiologies remains a major public health problem and both patients and clinicians are seeking improved strategies to effectively manage pain. No currently available therapies or drugs effectively treat all types of nociceptive and neuropathic pain states. The compounds of the present invention are novel CB2 receptor modulators that have utility in treating pain, including nociceptive and neuropathic pain. The location of CB2 receptors on the surface of immune cells suggests a role for these receptors in immunomodulation and inflammation. Recent studies have demonstrated that CB2 receptor ligands have immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, compounds that selectively interact with CB2 receptors offer a unique pharmacotherapy for the treatment of immune and inflammatory disorders.

In Vitro Methods
Human CB? Radioligand Binding Assays:
HEK293 cells stably expressing human CB2 receptors were grown until a confluent monolayer was formed. Briefly, the cells were harvested and homogenized in TE buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl, 1 niM MgCl2, and 1 mM EDTA) using a polytron for 2 X 10 second bursts in the presence of protease inhibitors, followed by centrifugation at 45,000Xg for 20 minutes. The final membrane pellet was re-homogenized in storage buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl, 1 mM MgCl2, and 1 mM EDTA and 10% sucrose) and frozen at -78 0C until used. Saturation binding reactions were initiated by the addition of membrane preparation (protein concentration of 5 μg/ well for human CB2) into wells of a deep well plate containing ([3H]CP-55,940 (120 Ci/mmol, a nonselective CB agonist commercially available from Tocris) in assay buffer (50 mM Tris, 2.5 mM EDTA, 5 mM MgCl2, and 0.5 mg/mL fatty acid free BSA, pH 7.4). After 90 min incubation at 30 0C, binding reaction was terminated by the addition of 300 μ I/well of cold assay buffer followed by rapid vacuum filtration through a
UniFilter-96 GF/C filter plates (pre-soaked in 1 mg/mL BSA for 2 hours). The bound activity was counted in a TopCount using Microscint-20. Saturation experiments were conducted with twelve concentrations of [3H]CP-55,940 ranging from 0.01 to 8 nM. Competition experiments were conducted with 0.5 nM [3H]CP-55,940 and five concentrations (1 nM to 10 μM) of displacing ligands. The addition of 10 μM unlabeled CP-55,940 (Tocris, Ellisville, MO) was used to assess nonspecific binding.
The compounds of the present invention bound (Ki) to CB2 receptors less than about 10,000 nM. In a more preferred embodiment, compounds of the present invention bound to CB2 receptors less than about 200 nM.
Human CB^ Radioligand Binding Assay:
HEK293 human CBi membranes were purchased from Perkin Elmer. Binding was initiated by the addition of membranes (8-12 μg per well) into wells (Scienceware 96-well Deep Well plate, VWR, West Chester, PA) containing [3H]CP-55,940 (120 Ci/mmol, Perkin Elmer, Boston, MA) and a sufficient volume of assay buffer (50 mM Tris, 2.5 mM EDTA, 5 raM MgCl2, and 0.5 mg/mL fatty acid free BSA, pH 7.4) to bring the total volume to 250 μL. After incubation (30 0C for 90 minutes), binding was terminated by the addition of 300 μL per well of cold assay buffer and rapid vacuum filtration (FilterMate Cell Harvester, Perkin Elmer, Boston, MA) through a UniFilter-96 GF/C filter plate (Perkin Elmer, Boston, MA) (pre-soaked in 0.3% PEI at least 3 hours), followed by five washes with cold assay buffer. The bound activity was counted in the TopCount using Microscint-20 (both from Perkin Elmer, Boston, MA). Competition experiments were conducted with 1 nM [3H]CP-55,940 and five concentrations (1 nM to 10 μM) of displacing ligands. The addition of 10 μM unlabeled CP-55,940 (Tocris, Ellisville, MO) was used to assess nonspecific binding.
The CBi and CB2 radioligand binding assays described herein can be utilized to ascertain the selectivity of compounds of the present invention for binding to CB2 relative to CBi receptors.
In Vivo Methods: Animals
Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats (250-300 g body weight, Charles River Laboratories, Portage, MI) were used. Animal handling and experimental protocols were approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) at Abbott Laboratories. For all surgical procedures, animals were maintained under halothane anesthesia (4% to induce, 2% to maintain), and the incision sites were sterilized using a 10% povidone-iodine solution prior to and after surgeries.
Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA) Model of Inflammatory Pain
Chronic inflammatory thermal hyperalgesia was induced by injection of 150 μl of a 50% solution of CFA in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) into the plantar surface of the right hind paw in rats; control animals received only PBS treatment. Thermal hyperalgesia was assessed 48 hours post CFA injection. Thermal hyperalgesia was determined using a commercially available thermal paw stimulator (University Anesthesiology Research and Development Group (UARDG), University of California, San Diego, CA) described by Hargreaves et al. (Hargreaves, et. al., 1988, Pain 32, 77). Rats were placed into individual plastic cubicles mounted on a glass surface maintained at 30 0C, and allowed a 20 min habituation period. A thermal stimulus, in the form of radiant heat emitted from a focused projection bulb, was then applied to the plantar surface of each hind paw. The stimulus current was maintained at 4.50 ± 0.05 amp, and the maximum time of exposure was set at 20.48 sec to limit possible tissue damage. The elapsed time until a brisk withdrawal of the hind paw from the thermal stimulus was recorded automatically using photodiode motion sensors. The right and left hind paw of each rat was tested in three sequential trials at approximately 5-minute intervals. Paw withdrawal latency (PWL) was calculated as the mean of the two shortest latencies.
Representative compounds of the present invention showed efficacy at less than about 300 micromoles/kg in the Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA) model of inflammatory pain. In a more preferred embodiment, compounds of the present invention showed efficacy at less than about 50 micromoles/kg in the Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA) model of inflammatory pain.
Spinal Nerve Ligation Model of Neuropathic Pain
A model of spinal nerve ligation-induced (SNL model) neuropathic pain was produced using the procedure originally described by Kim and Chung (Kim, S.H. and J.M. Chung, 1992, An experimental model for peripheral neuropathy produced by segmental spinal nerve ligation in the rat, Pain 50, 355). The left L5 and L6 spinal nerves of the rat were isolated adjacent to the vertebral column and tightly ligated with a 5-0 silk suture distal to the DRG, and care was taken to avoid injury of the L4 spinal nerve. Sham rats underwent the same procedure, but without nerve ligation. All animals were allowed to recover for at least one week and not more than three weeks prior to assessment of tactile allodynia.
Tactile allodynia was measured using calibrated von Frey filaments (Stoelting, Wood Dale, IL) as previously described (Chaplan, S.R., F.W. Bach, J.W. Pogrel, J.M. Chung and T.L. Yaksh, 1994, Quantitative assessment of tactile allodynia in the rat paw, J. Neurosci. Methods 53, 55). Rats were placed into inverted individual plastic containers (20 x 12.5 x 20 cm) on top of a suspended wire mesh grid, and acclimated to the test chambers for 20 minutes. The von Frey filaments were presented perpendicularly to the plantar surface of the selected hind paw, and then held in this position for approximately 8 sec with enough force to cause a slight bend in the filament. Positive responses included an abrupt withdrawal of the hind paw from the stimulus, or flinching behavior immediately following removal of the stimulus. A 50% withdrawal threshold was determined using an up-down procedure (Dixon, WJ., 1980, Efficient analysis of experimental observations, Ann. Rev. Pharmacol. Toxicol. 20, 441). Only rats with a baseline threshold score of less that 4.25 g were used in this study, and animals demonstrating motor deficit were excluded. Tactile allodynia thresholds were also assessed in several control groups, including naive, sham-operated, and saline infused animals a well as in the contralateral paws of nerve-injured rats.
Representative compounds of the present invention showed efficacy at less than about 300 micromoles/kg in the spinal nerve ligation model of neuropathic pain. In a more preferred embodiment, compounds of the present invention showed efficacy at less than about 100 micromoles/kg in the spinal nerve ligation model of neuropathic pain.
The data contained herein demonstrates that compounds of the present invention bind to the CB2 receptor. Certain compounds of the present invention were shown to have an analgesic effect in two types of animal pain models relating to neuropathic and nociceptive pain.
In addition to the data contained herein, several lines of evidence support the assertion that CB2 receptors play a role in analgesia. For example, Zimmer et al. have reported that the nonselective cannabinoid agonist Δ9-THC retains some analgesic efficacy in CBi receptor knockout mice (Zimmer, A., et al., Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci., 1999, 96, 5780-5785). HU-308 is one of the first highly selective CB2 agonists identified that elicits an antinociceptive response in the rat formalin model of persistent pain (Hanus, L., et al., Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci., 1999, 96, 14228-14233). The CB2-selective cannabiniod ligand AM- 1241 exhibits robust analgesic efficacy in animal models of acute thermal pain (Malan, T. P., et al., Pain, 2001, 93, 239-245; Ibrahim, M. M., et al., Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci., 2005, 102(8), 3093-3098), persistent pain (Hohmann, A. G., et al., J. Pharmacol. Exp. Ther., 2004, 308, 446-453), inflammatory pain (Nackley, A. G., et al., Neuroscience, 2003, 119, 747-757; Quartilho, A. et al., Anesthesiology, 2003, 99, 955-60), and neuropathic pain (Ibrahim, M. M., et al., Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci., 2003, 100, 10529-10533). The CB2-selective partial agonist GW405833, also known as L768242, is efficacious in rodent models of neuropathic, incisional, and both chronic and acute inflammatory pain (Valenzano, K. J., et al., Neuropharmacology, 2005, 48, 658-672 and Clayton, N., et al., Pain, 2002, 96, 253-260). The analgesic effects induced by these CB2-selective ligands are blocked by CB2 and not by CBi receptor antagonists. Furthermore, at fully efficacious doses, AM-1241 and GW405833 are devoid of typical CBi receptor-mediated CNS side effects, providing evidence that modulation of CB2 receptors can produce broad-spectrum pain relief with reduced side-effect liability.
The potential exists for CB2 modulators to have opioid sparing effects. A synergy between the analgesic effects of morphine and the nonselective CB agonist Δ9-THC has been documented (Cichewicz, D. L., Life Sci. 2004, 74, 1317-1324). Therefore, CB2 ligands have additive or synergistic analgesic effects when used in combination with lower doses of morphine or other opioids, providing a strategy for reducing adverse opioid events, such as tolerance, constipation, and respiratory depression, without sacrificing analgesic efficacy.
CB2 receptors are present in tissues and cell types associated with immune functions and CB2 receptor mRNA is expressed by human B cells, natural killer cells, monocytes, neutrophils, and T cells (Galiegue et al., Eur. J. Biochem., 1995, 232, 54-61). Studies with CB2 knockout mice have suggested a role for CB2 receptors in modulating the immune system (Buckley, N. E., et al., Eur. J. Pharmacol. 2000, 396, 141-149). Although immune cell development and differentiation are similar in knockout and wild type animals, the immunosuppressive effects of Δ9 -THC are absent in the CB2 receptor knockout mice, providing evidence for the involvement of CB2 receptors in immunomodulation. As such, selective CB2 modulators are useful for the treatment of autoimmune diseases including but not limited to multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, myasthenia gravis, type I diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and hepatitis; and immune related disorders including but not limited to tissue rejection in organ transplants, gluten- sensitive enteropathy (Celiac disease), asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, bronchitis, acute respiratory distress syndrome, allergies, allergic rhinitis, dermatitis, and Sjogren's syndrome.
Microglial cells are considered to be the immune cells of the central nervous system (CNS) where they regulate the initiation and progression of immune responses. They are quiescent and resting having a ramified morphology as long as the CNS is healthy. Microglia express a variety of receptors enabling them to survey the CNS and respond to pathological events. Insult or injury to the CNS leads to microglial cell activation, which is characterized by various morphological changes allowing response to the lesion. Ramifications are retracted and microglia are transformed into amoeboid-like cells with phagocytic function. They can proliferate, rapidly migrate to the site of injury, and produce and release cytokines, chemokines and complement components (Watkins L. R., et al., Trends in Neuroscience, 2001, 24(8), 450; Kreutzberg, G. W., Trends Neurosci., 1996, 19, 312-318). CB2 receptor expression on microglia is dependent upon inflammatory state with higher levels Of CB2 found in primed, proliferating, and migrating microglia relative to resting or fully activated microglial (Carlisle, S. J., et al. Int. Immunopharmacol., 2002, 2, 69). Neuroinflammation induces many changes in microglia cell morphology and there is an upregulation of CB2 receptors and other components of the endocannabinoid system. It is conceivable that CB2 receptors may be more susceptible to pharmacological effects during neuroinflammation (Walter, L., Stella, N., Br. J. Pharmacol. 2004, 141, 775-785). Neuroinflammation occurs in several neurodegenerative diseases, and induction of microglial CB2 receptors has been observed (Carrier, E. J., et al., Current Drug Targets - CNS & Neurological Disorders, 2005, 4, 657-665). Thus, CB2 ligands may be clinically useful for the treatment of neuroinfiammation. CB2 receptor expression has been detected in perivascular microglial cells within normal, healthy human cerebellum (Nunez, E., et al., Synapse, 2004, 58, 208-213). Perivascular cells are immunoregulatory cells located adjacent to CNS blood vessels and, along with parenchymal microglia and astrocytes, they play a pivotal role in maintaining CNS homeostasis and blood-brain barrier functionality (Williams, K., et al., GHa, 2001, 36, 156-164). CB2 receptor expression has also been detected on cerebromicrovascular endothelial cells, which represent a main component of the blood-brain barrier (Golech, S. A., et al., MoI. Brain Res., 2004, 132, 87-92). A recent report demonstrated that CB2 receptor expression is up-regulated in the brains of macaques with simian immunodeficiency virus-induced encephalitis (Benito, C, et al., J. Neurosci. 2005, 25(10), 2530-2536). Thus, compounds that affect CB2 signaling may protect the blood-brain barrier and be clinically useful in the treatment of neuroinfiammation and a variety of neuroinflammatory disorders including retroviral encephalitis, which occurs with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in the CNS.
Multiple sclerosis is common immune-mediated disease of the CNS in which the ability of neurons to conduct impulses becomes impaired through demyelination and axonal damage. The demyelination occurs as a consequence of chronic inflammation and ultimately leads to a broad range of clinical symptoms that fluctuate unpredictably and generally worsen with age. These include painful muscle spasms, tremor, ataxia, motor weakness, sphincter dysfunction, and difficulty speaking (Pertwee, R. G., Pharmacol. Ther. 2002, 95, 165-174). The CB2 receptor is up-regulated on activated microglial cells during experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) (Maresz, K., et al., J. Neurochem. 2005, 95, 437-445). CB2 receptor activation prevents the recruitment of inflammatory cells such as leukocytes into the CNS (Ni, X., et al., Multiple Sclerosis, 2004, 10, 158-164) and plays a protective role in experimental, progressive demyelination (Arevalo-Martin, A.; et al., J. Neurosci., 2003, 23(7), 2511-2516), which are critical features in the development of multiple sclerosis. Thus, CB2 receptor modulators provide a unique treatment for demyelinating pathologies.
Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder accounting for the most common form of elderly dementia. Recent studies have revealed that CB2 receptor expression is upregulated in neuritic plaque-associated microglia from brains of Alzheimer's disease patients (Benito, C, et al., J. Neurosci., 2003, 23(35), 11136-1 1141). In vitro, treatment with the CB2 agonist JWH-133 abrogated β-amyloid-induced microglial activation and neurotoxicity, effects that can be blocked by the CB2 antagonist SR144528 (Ramirez, B. G., et al., J. Neurosci. 2005, 25(8), 1904-1913). CB2 modulators possess both anti- inflammatory and neuroprotective actions and thus have clinical utility in treating neuroinfiammation and in providing neuroprotection associated with the development of Alzheimer's disease.
Increased levels of epithelial CB2 receptor expression are observed in human inflammatory bowel disease tissue (Wright, K., et al., Gastroenterology, 2005, 129, 437-453). Activation Of CB2 receptors re-established normal gastrointestinal transit after endotoxic inflammation was induced in rats (Mathison, R., et al., Br. J. Pharmacol. 2004, 142, 1247- 1254). CB2 receptor activation in a human colonic epithelial cell line inhibited TNF-oc- induced interleukin-8 (IL-8) release (Ihenetu, K. et al., Eur. J. Pharmacol. 2003, 458, 207- 215). Chemokines released from the epithelium , such as the neutrophil chemoattractant IL- 8, are upregulated in inflammatory bowel disease (Warhurst, A. C, et al., Gut, 1998, 42, 208- 213). Thus, administration of CB2 receptor modulators represents a novel approach for the treatment of inflammation and disorders of the gastrointestinal tract including but not limited to inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, secretory diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Hepatic fibrosis occurs as a response to chronic liver injury and ultimately leads to cirrhosis, which is a major worldwide health issue due to the severe accompanying complications of portal hypertension, liver failure, and hepatocellular carcinoma (Lotersztajn, S., et al., Annu. Rev. Pharmacol. Toxicol., 2005, 45, 605-628). Although CB2 receptors were not detectable in normal human liver, CB2 receptors were expressed liver biopsy specimens from patients with cirrhosis. Activation of CB2 receptors in cultured hepatic myofibroblasts produced potent antifibrogenic effects (Julien, B., et al., Gastroenterology, 2005, 128, 742- 755). In addition, CB2 knockout mice developed enhanced liver fibrosis after chronic administration of carbon tetrachloride relative to wild-type mice. Administration Of CB2 receptor modulators represents a unique approach for the treatment of liver fibrosis. CB2 receptors are involved in the neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory mechanisms induced by the interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-lra) (Molina-Holgado, F., et al., J. Neurosci., 2003, 23(16), 6470-6474). IL-lra is an important anti-inflammatory cytokine that protects against ischemic, excitotoxic, and traumatic brain insults. CB2 receptors play a role in mediating these neuroprotective effects indicating that CB2 ligands are useful in the treatment of traumatic brain injury, stroke, and in mitigating brain damage.
Cough is a dominant and persistent symptom of many inflammatory lung diseases, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, viral infections, and pulmonary fibrosis (Patel, H. J., et al., Brit. J. Pharmacol., 2003, 140, 261-268). Recent studies have provided evidence for the existence of neuronal CB2 receptors in the airways, and have demonstrated a role for CB2 receptor activation in cough suppression (Patel, H. J., et al., Brit. J. Pharmacol., 2003, 140, 261-268 and Yoshihara, S., et al., Am. J. Respir. Crit. Care Med., 2004, 170, 941-946). Both exogenous and endogenous cannabinoid ligands inhibit the activation of C-fibers via CB2 receptors and reduce neurogenic inflammatory reactions in airway tissues (Yoshihara, S., et al., J. Pharmacol. Sci. 2005, 98(1), 77-82; Yoshihara, S., et al., Allergy and Immunology, 2005, 138, 80-87). Thus, CB2-selective modulators have utility as antitussive agents for the treatment pulmonary inflammation, chronic cough, and a variety of airway inflammatory diseases including but not limited to asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and pulmonary fibrosis.
Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by reduced bone mass, which leads to deterioration of bone microstructure and increased susceptibility to fracture. Age is associated with bone loss and it is estimated that 50% of all Caucasian women will have osteoporosis by the age of 80 (Ralston, S. H., Curr. Opin. Pharmacol., 2003, 3, 286-290). There is a substantial genetic contribution to bone mass density and the CB2 receptor gene is associated with human osteoporosis (Karsak, M., et al., Human Molecular Genetics, 2005, 14(22), 3389-3396). Osteoclasts and osteoblasts are largely responsible for maintaining bone structure and function through a process called remodeling, which involves resorption and synthesis of bone (Boyle, W. J., et al., Nature, 2003, 423, 337-342). CB2 receptor expression has been detected on osteoclasts and osteoblastic precursor cells, and administration of a CB2 agonist in mice caused a dose-dependent increase in bone formation (Grotenhermen, F. and Muller-Vahl, K., Expert Opin. Pharmacother., 2003, 4(12), 2367-2371). Cannabinoid inverse agonists, including the CB2-selective inverse agonist SR144528, have been shown to inhibit osteoclast activity and reverse ovariectomy-induced bone loss in mice, which is a model for post-menopausal osteoporosis (Ralston, S. H., et al., Nature Medicine, 2005, 11, 774-779). Thus, CB2 modulators are useful for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and bone disorders.
Artherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease and is a leading cause of heart disease and stroke. CB2 receptors have been detected in both human and mouse atherosclerotic plaques. Administration of low doses of THC in apolipoprotein E knockout mice slowed the progression of atherosclerotic lesions, and these effects were inhibited by the CB2-selective antagonist SR144528 (Steffens, S., et al., Nature, 2005, 434, 782-786). Thus, compounds with activity at the CB2 receptor are clinically useful for the treatment of atheroscelorsis.
CB2 receptors are expressed on malignant cells of the immune system and targeting CB2 receptors to induce apoptosis may constitute a novel approach to treating malignancies of the immune system. Selective CB2 agonists induce regression of malignant gliomas (Sanchez, C, et al., Cancer Res., 2001, 61, 5784-5789), skin carcinomas (Casanova, M. L., et al., J. Clin. Invest., 2003, 111, 43-50), and lymphomas (McKallip, R. J., et al., Blood, 2002, 15(2), 637-634). Thus, CB2 modulators have utility as anticancer agents against tumors of immune origin.
Activation OfCB2 receptors has been demonstrated to protect the heart against the deleterious effects of ischemia and reperfusion (Lepicier, P., et al., Brit. J. Pharm. 2003, 139, 805-815; Bouchard, J.-F., et al., Life Sci. 2003, 72, 1859-1870; Filippo, C. D., et al., J.
Leukoc. Biol. 2004, 75, 453-459). Thus, CB2 modulators have utility for the treatment or prophylaxis of cardiovascular disease and the development of myocardial infarction.
The present invention also provides pharmaceutical compositions that comprise compounds of the present invention. The pharmaceutical compositions comprise compounds of the present invention formulated together with one or more non-toxic pharmaceutically acceptable carriers.
The pharmaceutical compositions of this invention can be administered to humans and other mammals orally, rectally, parenterally , intracisternally, intravaginally, topically (as by powders, ointments or drops), bucally or as an oral or nasal spray. The term "parenterally," as used herein, refers to modes of administration that include intravenous, intramuscular, intraperitoneal, intrasternal, subcutaneous and intraarticular injection and infusion.
The term "pharmaceutically acceptable carrier," as used herein, means a non-toxic, inert solid, semi-solid or liquid filler, diluent, encapsulating material or formulation auxiliary of any type. Some examples of materials which can serve as pharmaceutically acceptable carriers are sugars such as, but not limited to, lactose, glucose and sucrose; starches such as, but not limited to, corn starch and potato starch; cellulose and its derivatives such as, but not limited to, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, ethyl cellulose and cellulose acetate; powdered tragacanth; malt; gelatin; talc; excipients such as, but not limited to, cocoa butter and suppository waxes; oils such as, but not limited to, peanut oil, cottonseed oil, safflower oil, sesame oil, olive oil, corn oil and soybean oil; glycols; such as propylene glycol; esters such as, but not limited to, ethyl oleate and ethyl laurate; agar; buffering agents such as, but not limited to, magnesium hydroxide and aluminum hydroxide; alginic acid; pyrogen-free water; isotonic saline; Ringer's solution; ethyl alcohol, and phosphate buffer solutions, as well as other non-toxic compatible lubricants such as, but not limited to, sodium lauryl sulfate and magnesium stearate, as well as coloring agents, releasing agents, coating agents, sweetening, flavoring and perfuming agents, preservatives and antioxidants can also be present in the composition, according to the judgment of the formulator. Pharmaceutical compositions of this invention for parenteral injection comprise pharmaceutically acceptable sterile aqueous or nonaqueous solutions, dispersions, suspensions or emulsions as well as sterile powders for reconstitution into sterile injectable solutions or dispersions just prior to use. Examples of suitable aqueous and nonaqueous carriers, diluents, solvents or vehicles include water, ethanol, polyols (such as glycerol, propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol and the like), vegetable oils (such as olive oil), injectable organic esters (such as ethyl oleate) and suitable mixtures thereof. Proper fluidity can be maintained, for example, by the use of coating materials such as lecithin, by the maintenance of the required particle size in the case of dispersions and by the use of surfactants. These compositions may also contain adjuvants such as preservatives, wetting agents, emulsifying agents and dispersing agents. Prevention of the action of microorganisms can be ensured by the inclusion of various antibacterial and antifungal agents, for example, paraben, chlorobutanol, phenol sorbic acid and the like. It may also be desirable to include isotonic agents such as sugars, sodium chloride and the like. Prolonged absorption of the injectable pharmaceutical form can be brought about by the inclusion of agents, which delay absorption such as aluminum monostearate and gelatin.
In some cases, in order to prolong the effect of the drug, it is desirable to slow the absorption of the drug from subcutaneous or intramuscular injection. This can be accomplished by the use of a liquid suspension of crystalline or amorphous material with poor water solubility. The rate of absorption of the drug then depends upon its rate of dissolution that, in turn, may depend upon crystal size and crystalline form. Alternatively, delayed absorption of a parenterally administered drug form is accomplished by dissolving or suspending the drug in an oil vehicle.
Injectable depot forms are made by forming microencapsule matrices of the drug in biodegradable polymers such as polylactide-polyglycolide. Depending upon the ratio of drug to polymer and the nature of the particular polymer employed, the rate of drug release can be controlled. Examples of other biodegradable polymers include poly(orthoesters) and poly(anhydrides). Depot injectable formulations are also prepared by entrapping the drug in liposomes or microemulsions, which are compatible with body tissues.
The injectable formulations can be sterilized, for example, by filtration through a bacterial-retaining filter or by incorporating sterilizing agents in the form of sterile solid compositions which can be dissolved or dispersed in sterile water or other sterile injectable medium just prior to use. Solid dosage forms for oral administration include capsules, tablets, pills, powders and granules. In such solid dosage forms, the active compound may be mixed with at least one inert, pharmaceutically acceptable carrier or excipient, such as sodium citrate or dicalcium phosphate and/or a) fillers or extenders such as starches, lactose, sucrose, glucose, mannitol and silicic acid; b) binders such as carboxymethylcellulose, alginates, gelatin, polyvinylpyrrolidone, sucrose and acacia; c) humectants such as glycerol; d) disintegrating agents such as agar-agar, calcium carbonate, potato or tapioca starch, alginic acid, certain silicates and sodium carbonate; e) solution retarding agents such as paraffin; f) absorption accelerators such as quaternary ammonium compounds; g) wetting agents such as cetyl alcohol and glycerol monostearate; h) absorbents such as kaolin and bentonite clay and i) lubricants such as talc, calcium stearate, magnesium stearate, solid polyethylene glycols, sodium lauryl sulfate and mixtures thereof. In the case of capsules, tablets and pills, the dosage form may also comprise buffering agents.
Solid compositions of a similar type may also be employed as fillers in soft and hard- filled gelatin capsules using such carriers as lactose or milk sugar as well as high molecular weight polyethylene glycols and the like.
The solid dosage forms of tablets, dragees, capsules, pills and granules can be prepared with coatings and shells such as enteric coatings and other coatings well-known in the pharmaceutical formulating art. They may optionally contain opacifying agents and may also be of a composition such that they release the active ingredient(s) only, or preferentially, in a certain part of the intestinal tract, optionally, in a delayed manner. Examples of embedding compositions that can be used include polymeric substances and waxes.
The active compounds can also be in micro-encapsulated form, if appropriate, with one or more of the above-mentioned carriers.
Liquid dosage forms for oral administration include pharmaceutically acceptable emulsions, solutions, suspensions, syrups and elixirs. In addition to the active compounds, the liquid dosage forms may contain inert diluents commonly used in the art such as, for example, water or other solvents, solubilizing agents and emulsifϊers such as ethyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, ethyl carbonate, ethyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, benzyl benzoate, propylene glycol, 1 ,3-butylene glycol, dimethyl formamide, oils (in particular, cottonseed, groundnut, . corn, germ, olive, castor and sesame oils), glycerol, tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol, polyethylene glycols and fatty acid esters of sorbitan and mixtures thereof.
Besides inert diluents, the oral compositions may also include adjuvants such as wetting agents, emulsifying and suspending agents, sweetening, flavoring and perfuming agents.
Suspensions, in addition to the active compounds, may contain suspending agents as, for example, ethoxylated isostearyl alcohols, polyoxyethylene sorbitol and sorbitan esters, microcrystalline cellulose, aluminum metahydroxide, bentonite, agar-agar, tragacanth and mixtures thereof. Compositions for rectal or vaginal administration are preferably suppositories which can be prepared by mixing the compounds of this invention with suitable non-irritating carriers or carriers such as cocoa butter, polyethylene glycol or a suppository wax which are solid at room temperature but liquid at body temperature and therefore melt in the rectum or vaginal cavity and release the active compound. Compounds of the present invention can also be administered in the form of liposomes. As is known in the art, liposomes are generally derived from phospholipids or other lipid substances. Liposomes are formed by mono- or multi-lamellar hydrated liquid crystals that are dispersed in an aqueous medium. Any non-toxic, physiologically acceptable and metabolizable lipid capable of forming liposomes can be used. The present compositions in liposome form can contain, in addition to a compound of the present invention, stabilizers, preservatives, excipients and the like. The preferred lipids are natural and synthetic phospholipids and phosphatidyl cholines (lecithins) used separately or together.
Methods to form liposomes are known in the art. See, for example, Prescott, Ed., Methods in Cell Biology, Volume XIV, Academic Press, New York, N.Y. (1976), p. 33 et seq.
Dosage forms for topical administration of a compound of this invention include powders, sprays, ointments and inhalants. The active compound may be mixed under sterile conditions with a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier and any needed preservatives, buffers or propellants, which may be required. Opthalmic formulations, eye ointments, powders and solutions are also contemplated as being within the scope of this invention.
Actual dosage levels of active ingredients in the pharmaceutical compositions of this invention can be varied so as to obtain an amount of the active compound(s) that is effective to achieve the desired therapeutic response for a particular patient, compositions and mode of administration. The selected dosage level will depend upon the activity of the particular compound, the route of administration, the severity of the condition being treated and the condition and prior medical history of the patient being treated. When used in the above or other treatments, a therapeutically effective amount of one of the compounds of the present invention can be employed in pure form or, where such forms exist, in pharmaceutically acceptable salt, ester or prodrug form. The phrase "therapeutically effective amount" of the compound of the invention means a sufficient amount of the compound to treat disorders, at a reasonable benefit/risk ratio applicable to any medical treatment. It will be understood, however, that the total daily usage of the compounds and compositions of the present invention will be decided by the attending physician within the scope of sound medical judgement. The specific therapeutically effective dose level for any particular patient will depend upon a variety of factors including the disorder being treated and the severity of the disorder; activity of the specific compound employed; the specific composition employed; the age, body weight, general health, sex and diet of the patient; the time of administration, route of administration, and rate of excretion of the specific compound employed; the duration of the treatment; drugs used in combination or coincidental with the specific compound employed; and like factors well known in the medical arts. The term "pharmaceutically acceptable salt," as used herein, means salts derived from inorganic or organic acids. The salts can be prepared in situ during the final isolation and purification of compounds of Formula (I) or separately by reacting the free base of a compound of Formula (I) with an inorganic or organic acid. Representative acid addition salts include, but are not limited to, acetate, adipate, alginate, citrate, aspartate, benzoate, benzenesulfonate, bisulfate, butyrate, camphorate, camphorsulfonate, digluconate, glycerophosphate, hemisulfate, heptanoate, hexanoate, fiimarate, hydrochloride, hydrobromide, hydroiodide, 2-hydroxyethansulfonate (isethionate), lactate, maleate, fiimarate, methanesulfonate, nicotinate, 2-naphthalenesulfonate, oxalate, pamoate, pectinate, persulfate, 3-phenylpropionate, picrate, pivalate, propionate, succinate, sulfate, (L) tartrate, (D) tartrate, (DL) tartrate, thiocyanate, phosphate, glutamate, bicarbonate, p-toluenesulfonate, and undecanoate.

Prodrugs of the present invention may be rapidly transformed in vivo to compounds of Formula (I), for example, by hydrolysis in blood.
The present invention contemplates compounds of Formula (I) formed by synthetic means or formed by in vivo biotransformation.
The compounds of the invention can exist in unsolvated as well as solvated forms, including hydrated forms, such as hemi-hydrates. In general, the solvated forms, with pharmaceutically acceptable solvents such as water and ethanol among others, are equivalent to the unsolvated forms for the purposes of the invention. The total daily dose of the compounds of this invention administered to a human or lower animal may range from about 0.003 to about 30 mg/kg/day. For purposes of oral administration, more preferable doses can be in the range of from about 0.01 to about 10 mg/kg/day. If desired, the effective daily dose can be divided into multiple doses for purposes of administration; consequently, single dose compositions may contain such amounts or submultiples thereof to make up the daily dose.
