Description

NOVEL ROTIGOTINE SALTS

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The invention relates generally to new salt forms of nitrogen-disubstituted (N5N- disubstituted) aminotetralins. More specifically, the invention relates to new salts of rotigotine and processes for preparation and use of such salts in pharmaceutical applications.

BACKGROUND

[0002] Aminotetralins constitute an important class of biologically active compounds. For example, the aminotetralin drug rotigotine ((S)-6-(propyl(2-thiophen-2-yl)ethyl)amino)-5,6,7,8- tetrahydronaphthalen-1-ol) is a non-ergot (or non-ergotamine) dopamine D2 agonist and is used for the treatment of Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome.

Rotigotine

[0003] Rotigotine has been reported in at least two forms. U.S. Patent No. 6,884,434 describes the HCl salt and the free base (rotigotine base). This patent also describes a pharmaceutical formulation of rotigotine in the form of a transdermal therapeutic system (transdermal patch) comprising an adhesive matrix layer containing rotigotine in an amount effective for the treatment of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

[0004] A crystal structure of what appears to be rotigotine base is disclosed in the

Cambridge Structural Database under reference code RALMOG (deposited by M. Nieger, K.H. Dotz, Department of Inorganic Chemistry, University of Bonn, Germany, Private Communication, 2001, CCDC 163602). SUMMARY

[0005] In one aspect, the present invention provides new pharmaceutically acceptable salts of rotigotine in solid form with good yield and high chemical and enantiomeric purity. Surprisingly, it has been discovered that only a few salt forms of rotigotine are solids at room temperature, while most form oils. Thus, the following compounds, which may be isolated as solids, are disclosed for the first time: (S)-6-(propyl(2-thiophen-2-yl)ethyl)amino)-5,6,7,8- tetrahydronaphthalen-1-ol hydrobromide, (S)-6-(propyl(2-thiophen-2-yl)ethyl)amino)-5,6,7,8- tetrahydronaphthalen- 1 -ol /7-toluensulfonate, (S)-6-(propyl(2-thiophen-2-yl)ethyl)amino)-5,6,7,8- tetrahydronaphthalen-l-ol heminaphthalene-l,5-disulfonate, (S)-6-(propyl(2-thiophen-2- yl)ethyl)amino)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphthalen-l-ol tartrate, and (S)-6-(propyl(2-thiophen-2- yl)ethyl)amino)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphthalen-l-ol phosphate. In particular the formation of such salts allow for ease of manufacture by allowing the preparation and isolation of rotigotine from solution in high yields with good chemical and enatiomeric purity.

[0006] In another aspect, the present invention provides methods for preparing new pharmaceutically acceptable salts of rotigotine in solid form. The methods include contacting rotigotine base with an acid selected from hydrobromic acid, p-toluenesulfonic acid, naphthalene- 1,5-disulfonic acid, tartaric acid, and phosphoric acid, to form the salt and crystallizing or precipitating the resulting salt from a suitable solvent or combination of solvents. Typically, suitable solvents include organic solvents and solvents including water (i.e., aqueous solvents). In particular, suitable solvents may be selected from an alcohol, ketone, ester, alkane, chlorinated alkane, ether, benzene derivative, water or a mixture of any two or more thereof. For example, the solvent can be selected from acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, cyclohexanone, 3-pentanone, ethyl acetate, n-propyl acetate, diethyl ether, diisopropyl ether, methanol, ethanol, propanol, heptane, nitromethane, dichloromethane, chloroform, 1,2-dichloroethane, benzonitrile, methyl benzoate, nitrobenzene, water, or a mixture of any two or more thereof. Preferably, the solvent is acetone, ethyl acetate or a mixture of acetone and isopropanol.

[0007] In another aspect, the invention provides compositions comprising a salt of rotigotine described herein. For example, pharmaceutical compositions may include a salt of rotigotine as described herein and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. Transdermal patches including a rotigotine salt as described herein are also provided. [0008] The invention provides in another aspect, methods of treatment using rotigotine salts described herein. Thus, the methods include administering a rotigotine salt or composition as described herein to a subject suffering from a disease prevented, ameliorated or eliminated by the administration of a dopamine D2 receptor agonist or an antiparkinsonian agent. Such diseases include Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0014] New solid acid addition salts of rotigotine are provided as well as methods of making and using such salts. Surprisingly, only a few salts of rotigotine may be prepared in solid form, a form advantageous for pharmaceutical usage. Screening of a number of potential salts yielded only the hydrobromide, toluenesulfonate, heminaphthalene-l,5-disulfonate, tartrate and phosphate salts as solids in addition to the known hydrochloride salt. The present salts may be prepared in high purity from rotigotine base, which may be prepared both by known methods (see, e.g., U.S. Patent No. 6,884,434) and by the following methods.

[0015] Processes for the preparation of N,N-disubstituted aminotetralins, specifically, for the preparation of enantiomerically enriched or enantiomerically pure rotigotine as the free base or as a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt are provided herein. In one aspect, the processes include the step of: a) reacting an enantiomerically enriched compound of Formula (I),

Figure imgf000005_0001

with 2-(2-thienyl)ethanol arylsulfonate of Formula (II),

Figure imgf000005_0002

(H)

to provide a compound of Formula (IV),

Figure imgf000005_0003

(IV)

wherein each R is independently selected from hydrogen or a methyl group. The reaction may be performed without added base because Formula (I) serves as both the reactant and the base at the same time. In some embodiments, the compound of Formula (II) can be 2-(2-thienyl)ethanol benzenesulfonate or 2-(2-thienyl)ethanol toluenesulfonate. The reaction is typically carried out in an organic solvent, heated to a temperature of from about 600C to about 120 0C, and preferably from about 800C to about 1100C. Suitable solvents that may be heated to such temperatures include but are not limited to isopropyl acetate, isobutyl acetate, isoamyl acetate, toluene and xylene. Preferably, isobutyl acetate or isoamyl acetate are used. In some embodiments, the amount of the compound of Formula (II) is present at about 1 to about a 2.5 -fold molar excess, preferably from about a 1.2 to about a 2.0-fold molar excess with respect to the amount the compound of Formula (I).

[0016] Advantageously, unreacted starting aminotetralin precipitates from the reaction mixture as the salt of Formula (III):

Figure imgf000006_0001

(HI)

[0017] Thus, the present processes may further comprise the following step:

b) filtering the reaction mixture to isolate the precipitate comprising the salt having Formula (III). The filtrate will therefore comprise the product, the compound of Formula (IV).

[0018] The present processes may further comprise the following step:

c) contacting the salt having Formula (III) with a suitable base to convert it to the compound of Formula (I) Suitable bases are well known in the art and include, e.g., alkali metal hydroxides, carbonates, and the like. For example, 10% aqueous NaOH may be used to neutralize the salt and allow the compound of Formula (I) to be extracted into an organic solvent such as dichloromethane or the like.

[0019] The present processes may further comprise the following step:

d) treating the filtrate containing the compound of Formula (IV) with 1,5-naphthalenedisulfonic acid or its hydrates, to give the enantiomerically enriched or enantiomerically pure salt having Formula (V),

Figure imgf000006_0002

(V) wherein R is as defined above. The salt having Formula (V) is a useful intermediate in the synthesis allowing ready purification of the N,N-disubstituted aminotetralin by crystallization, and avoiding the use of chromatography. When R is H, rotigotine heminapthlene-l,5-disulfonate is produced.

[0020] Treatment of the filtrate is optionally conducted with the addition of an organic solvent, such as acetone, methanol, isopropanol, or the like. Optionally, the salt having Formula (V) is recrystallized.

[0021] The processes for preparing N,N-disubstituted aminotetralins may further include the following step:

e) contacting the salt of Formula (V) with a suitable base to provide the enantiomerically enriched or enantiomerically pure compound of Formula (IV). Suitable bases for salt neutralization are well known in the art and include for example, alkali metal hydroxides and carbonates.

[0022] The free base from step (e) may be converted to a pharmaceutically acceptable salt.

Thus, processes of the invention may further include.

f) contacting the enantiomerically enriched or enantiomerically pure compound of Formula (IV) from step (e) with a pharmaceutically acceptable acid and isolating the resulting salt. In some embodiments, the compound is rotigotine and the salt is the hydrochloride, hydrobromide, p- toluenesulfonate, heminaphthalene-l,5-disulfonate, tartrate and phosphate salt of rotigotine.

[0023] The synthetic processes described herein possess several advantages over prior art procedures. First, the present methods avoid the use of a large excess of alkylation agent, which is commonly greater than three-fold molar excess with respect to the starting 2-aminotetralins. Not only is this cheaper and more efficient, but extensive purification of the final product is avoided, thus simplifying the procedure. Second, the present methods avoid the use of temperatures higher than 120 0C for prolonged periods of time and thus avoid increased amounts of impurities that are problematic to remove from the final product. Finally, the unreacted starting material is readily recovered in a salt form that simplifies workups and subsequent purification of the product, which remains in the filtrate after the reaction.

[0024] Thus, in certain embodiments, the processes of the invention may be represented as in Scheme I. Scheme I

Figure imgf000008_0001

[0025] In another aspect, the invention provides compositions comprising a salt of rotigotine described herein. For example, pharmaceutical compositions may include a salt of rotigotine as described herein and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. Transdermal patches including a rotigotine salt as described herein are also provided. In some embodiments of the compositions and transdermal patches, the rotigotine salt is present in a therapeutically effective amount for treating a disease that may be prevented, ameliorated, or eliminated by administration of a a dopamine D2 receptor agonist or antiparkinsonian agent, e.g., Parkinson's disease. Methods of preparation or construction of a transdermal formulation, including with suitable excipients are known in the art, e.g., see US 6,884,434 or WO 94/07468.

In yet another aspect, the invention provides pharmaceutical formulations comprising a therapeutically effective amount of rotigitine, as described above, or a mixture of any two or more thereof, preferably in the form of a transdermal patch. The use of the salts of rotigotine in transdermal formulations may benefit from the addition of a pharmaceutically accpetable in the preparation of the transdermal patch to aide the formation of the free base in situ. In the transdermal patch rotigotine can be used as rotigotine in the salt forms as described above, or as rotigotine free base. If rotigotine free base is used then either the free base of rotigotine is added, after being formed directly prior to addition to the formulation from the rotigotine salt forms described above, or converted to the free base in situ during the preparation of the transdermal patch by adding a pharmaceutically acceptable base, such as potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide, such as described in US 6,884,434.

[0026] The invention provides in another aspect, methods of treatment using rotigotine salts described herein. Thus, the methods include administering a rotigotine salt or composition as described herein to a subject suffering from a disease prevented, ameliorated or eliminated by the administration of a dopamine D2 receptor agonist or an antiparkinsonian agent. Such diseases include Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome.

Definitions of terms used herein are provided below.

[0027] By the use of the term enantiomerically enriched it is meant that the enantiomeric excess (ee) is greater than 80%. In some embodiments greater than 90% or greater than 95%.

[0028] By use of the term enantiomerically pure it is meant that the enantiomeric excess

(ee) is greater than 98%, ideally greater than 99% and ideally enantiomerically pure means greater than 99.5%.

[0029] As used herein, benzene derivatives useful as solvents include organic solvents having one or more phenyl groups such as benzene, toluene, xylene, halogenated benzenes (e.g., chlorobenzene), benzonitrile, nitrobenzene, methyl benzoate, and the like.

[0030] All publications, patent applications, issued patents, and other documents referred to in this specification are herein incorporated by reference as if each individual publication, patent application, issued patent, or other document was specifically and individually indicated to be incorporated by reference in its entirety.
