Background of the Invention
This invention relates to novel benzimidazole derivatives that are useful in the treatment of abnormal cell growth, such as cancer, in mammals. This invention also relates to a method of using such compounds in the treatment of abnormal cell growth in mammals, especially humans, and to pharmaceutical compositions containing such compounds.
It is known that a cell may become cancerous by virtue of the transformation of a portion of its DNA into an oncogene (i.e.. a gene which, on activation, leads to the formation of malignant tumor cells), Many oncogenes encode proteins that are aberrant tyrosine kinases capable of causing ceil transformation. Alternatively, the overexpression of a normal proto-oncogenic tyrosine kinase may also result in proliferative disorders, sometimes resulting in a malignant phenotype.
Receptor tyrosine kinases are enzymes which span the cell membrane and possess an extracellular binding domain for growth factors such as epidermal growth factor, a transmembrane domain, and an intracellular portion which functions as a kinase to phosphorylate specific tyrosine residues in proteins and hence to influence cell proliferation. Other receptor tyrosine kinases include c-erbB-2, c-met, tie-2, PDGFr, FGFr, and VEGFR. It" is known that such kinases are frequently aberrantly expressed in common human cancers such as breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancer such as colon, rectal or stomach cancer, leukemia, and ovarian, bronchial or pancreatic cancer. It has also been shown that epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), which possesses tyrosine kinase activity, is mutated and/or overexpressed in many human cancers such as brain, lung, squamous cell, bladder, gastric, breast, head and neck, oesophageal, gynecological and thyroid tumors.
Accordingly, it has been recognized that inhibitors of receptor tyrosine kinases are useful as selective inhibitors of the growth of mammalian cancer cells. For example, erbstatin, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, selectively attenuates the growth in athymic nude mice of a transplanted human mammary carcinoma that expresses epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase (EGFR) but is without effect on the growth of another carcinoma that does not express the EGF receptor. Thus, the compounds of the present invention, which are selective inhibitors of certain receptor tyrosine kinases, in particular PDGFr, are useful in the,treatment of abnormal cell . growth, in particular cancer, in mammals.
Various other compounds, such as styrene derivatives, have also been shown to possess tyrosine kinase inhibitory properties. More recently, five European patent publications, namely EP 0 566 226,A1 (published October 20, 1993), EP 0 602 851 A1(published June 22, 1994), ET 0 635 507 A1 (published January 25, 1995), EP 0 635 498 A1 (published January 25, 1995), and EP 0 520 722 A1 (published December 30, 1992), refer to certain bicyclic derivatives, in particular quinazoline derivatives, as possessing anti-cancer properties that result from their tyrosine kinase inhibitory properties. Also, World Patent Application WO 92/20642 (published
November 26, 1992), refers to certain bis-mono and bicyclic aryl and heteroaryi compounds as tyrosine kinase inhibitors .that are useful in inhibiting abnormal cell proliferation. World Patent Applications WO96/16960 (published June 6, 1996), WO 96/09294 (published March 6, 1996), WO 97/30034 (published August 21, 1990, WO 98/02434 (published January 22, 1998), WO 98/02437 (published January 22, 1998), and WO 98/02438 (published January 22, 1998), also refer to substituted bicyclic heteroaromatic derivatives as tyrosine kinase inhibitors that are useful for the same purpose. Also see WO 99/16755, J. Med. Chem. 1998, 41, 5457-5465 and J. Med. Chem. 1999, 42, 2373-2382.

The phrase "pharmaceutically acceptable salt(s)", as used herein, unless otherwise indicated, includes salts of acidic or basic groups which may be present in the compounds of formula 1. The compounds of formula 1 that are basic in nature are capable of forming a wide variety of salts with various inorganic and organic acids. The acids that may be used to prepare pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salts of such basic compounds of formula 1 are those that form non-toxic acid addition salts, i.e., salts containing pharmacologically acceptable anions, such as the acetate, benzenesulfonate, .benzoate, bicarbonate, bisulfate, bitartrate, borate, bromide, calcium edetate, camsylate, carbonate, chloride, clavulanate, citrate, dihydrochloride, edetate, edislyate, estolate, esylate, ethylsuccinate, fumarate, gluceptate, gluconate, glutamate, glycollylarsanilate, hexylresorcinate, hydrabamine, hydrobromide, hydrochloride, iodide, isothionate, lactate, lactobionate, laurate, malate, maleate, rnandelate, mesylate, methylsulfate,

tartrate, teoclate, tosyiate, and valerate salts. Since a single compound of the
present invention may include more than one acidic or basic moieties, the compounds of the present invention may include mono, di or tri-salts in a single compound.
Those compounds of the present invention that are acidic in nature are capable of forming base salts with various pharmacologically acceptable cations. Examples of such salts include the alkali metal or alkaline earth metal salts and, particularly, the calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium salts of the compounds of the present invention.
The present invention includes within its scope prodrugs of the compounds of formula 1 above. In general, such prodrugs will be functional derivatives of the compounds of formula 1 which are readily convertible in vivo into the required compound of formula 1. Conventional procedures for the selection and preparation of suitable prodrug derivatives are described, for example, in "Design of Prodrugs", ed. H. Bundgaard, Elsevier, 1985.
A prodrug may be a pharmacologically inactive derivative of a biologically active substance (the "parent drug" or "parent molecule") that requires transformation within the body in order to release the active drug, and that has improved delivery properties over the parent drug molecule. The transformation in vivo may be, for example, as the result of some metabolic process, such as chemical or enzymatic hydrolysis of a carboxylic, phosphoric or sulphate ester, or reduction or oxidation of a susceptible functionality.
The compounds according to the invention have one or more asymmetric centres, and may accordingly exist both as enantiomers and as diastereoisomers. It is to be understood that all such isomers and mixtures thereof are encompassed within the scope of the present invention.
In the compounds of formula 1, where terms such as (CR4R5)m or (CR4R5)t are used, R4 and R5 may vary with each iteration of m or t above 1. For instance, where m or t is 2, the terms (CR4R5)m or (CR4R5), may equal -CH2CH2-, or -CH(CH3)C(CH2CH3)(CH2CH2CH3)-, or any number of similar moieties falling within the scope of the definitions of R4 and R5.
Certain compounds of formula 1 may have asymmetric centers and therefore exist in different enantiomeric forms. All optical isomers and stereoisomers of the compounds of formula 1, and mixtures thereof, are considered to be within the scope of the invention. With respect to the compounds of formula 1, the invention includes the use of a racemate, one or more enantiomeric forms, one or more diastereomeric forms, or mixtures thereof. The compounds of formula 1 may also exist as tautomers. This invention relates to the use of all such tautomers and mixtures thereof.
The subject invention also includes isotopically-labelled compounds, which are identical to those recited in formula 1, but for the fact that one or more atoms are replaced by
an atom having an atomic mass or mass number different from the atomic mass or mass number usually found in nature. Examples of isotopes that can be incorporated into compounds of the invention include isotopes of hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorous, fluorine and chlorine, such as 2H, 3H, 13C, 14C, 15N, 18O,~17O. 31P, 32P, 35S, 18F, and 36CI, respectively. Compounds of the present invention, prodrugs thereof, and pharmaceutically acceptable salts of said compounds or of said prodrugs which contain the aforementioned isotopes and/or other isotopes of other atoms are within the scope of this invention. Certain isotopically-labelled compounds of the present invention, for example those into which radioactive isotopes such as 3H and 14C are incorporated, are useful in drug and/or substrate tissue distribution assays. Tritiated, i.e., 3H, and carbon-14, i.e., 14C, isotopes are particularly preferred for their ease of preparation and detectability. Further, substitution with heavier isotopes such as deuterium, i.e., 2H, can afford certain therapeutic advantages resulting from greater metabolic stability, for example increased in vivo half-life or reduced dosage requirements and, hence, may be preferred in some circumstances. Isotopically labelled compounds of formula 1 of this invention and prodrugs thereof can generally be prepared by carrying out the procedures disclosed in the Schemes and/or in the Examples and Preparations below, by substituting a readily available isotopically labelled reagent for a non-isotopically labelled reagent.
This invention also encompasses pharmaceutical compositions containing and methods of treating proliferative disorders, or abnormal cell growth, by administering prodrugs of compounds of the formula 1. Compounds of formula 1 having free amino, amido, hydroxy or carboxylic groups can be converted into prodrugs. Prodrugs include compounds wherein an amino acid residue, or a polypeptide chain of two or more (e.g., two, three or four) amino acid residues is covalently joined through an amide or ester bond to a free amino, hydroxy or carboxylic acid group of compounds of formula 1. The amino acid residues include but are not limited to the 20 naturally occurring amino acids commonly designated by three letter symbols and also includes 4-hydroxyproline, hydroxylysine, demosine, isodemosine, 3-methylhistidine, norvalin, beta-alanine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, citrulline homocysteine, homoserine, ornithine and methionine sulfone. Additional types of prodrugs are also encompassed. For instance, free carboxyl groups can be derivatized as amides or alkyl esters. Free hydroxy groups may be derivatized using groups including but not limited to hemisuccinates, phosphate esters, dimethylaminoacetates, and phosphoryloxymethyloxycarbonyls, as outlined in Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, 1996, 19, 115. Carbamate prodrugs of hydroxy and amino groups are also included, as are carbonate prodrugs, sulfonate esters and sulfate esters of hydroxy groups. Derivatization of hydroxy groups as (acyloxy)methyl and (acyloxy)ethyl ethers wherein the acyl group may be an alkyl ester, optionally substituted with groups including but not limited to ether, amine and carboxylic acid functionalities, or where the acyl group is an amino acid ester as
described above, are also encompassed. Prodrugs of this type are described in J. Med. Chem. 1996, 39, 10. Free amines can also be derivatized as amides, sulfonamides or phosphonamides. All of these prodrug moieties may incorporate groups including but not limited to ether, amine and carboxylic acid functionalities.

Detailed Description Of The Invention
General synthetic methods which may be referred to for preparing the compounds of the present invention are provided in United States patent 5,990,146 (issued November 23, 1999)(Warner-Lambert Co.) and PCT published application numbers WO 99/16755 (published April 8, 1999)(Merck & Co.) and WO 01/40217 (published July 7, 2001)(Pfizer, Inc.). The foregoing patent and patent applications are hereby incorporated by reference in their entirety.
The compounds of this invention may alternatively be prepared according to the scheme 1 from 2-chloro-8-benzyloxyquinoline (I) and an appropriate 2-amino-nitrobenzene (J) by the method outlined in Scheme 1. The substituents R1, R2, R3 and R4 are as defined for the compounds of formula 1 in the summary of the invention. Palladium catalyzed amination of I and J provides quinoline K. Reduction of the nitro group and removal of the benzyl group via catalytic hydrogenation provides the benzimidazole L which can then be transformed into .the corresponding Inflate M. A second palladium catalyzed amination with amine N provides
piperidinyl quinoline O and subsequent removal of the t-butyloxycarbonyl group provides the desired product 1.
The compounds of the present invention may have .asymmetric carbon atoms. Diasterorneric mixtures can be separated into their individual diastereomers on the basis of their physical chemical differences by methods known to those skilled in the art, for example, by chromatography or fractional crystallization. Enantiomers can be separated by converting the enantiomeric mixtures into a diastereomric mixture by reaction with an appropriate optically active compound (e.g., alcohol), separating the diastereomers and converting (e.g., hydrolyzing) the individual diastereomers to the corresponding pure enantiomers. All such isomers, including diastereomeric mixtures and pure enantiomers are considered as part of the invention.
The compounds of formula 1 are basic in nature and are capable of forming a wide variety of different salts with various inorganic and organic acids. Although such salts must be pharmaceutically acceptable for administration to animals, it is often desirable in practice to initially isolate the compound of formula 1 from the reaction mixture as a pharmaceutically unacceptable salt and then simply convert the latter back to the free base compound by treatment with an alkaline reagent and subsequently convert the latter free base to a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt. The acid addition salts of the base compounds of this invention are readily prepared by treating the base compound with a substantially equivalent amount of the chosen mineral or organic acid in an aqueous solvent medium or in a suitable organic solvent, such as methanol or ethanol. Upon careful evaporation of the solvent, the desired solid salt is readily obtained. The desired acid salt can also be precipitated from a solution of the free base in an organic solvent by adding to the solution an appropriate mineral or organic acid.
The activity of the compounds of formula 1 may be determined by the following procedure.

Phosphorylation Buffer (PB): 50 mM HEPES, pH 7.3, 125 mM NaCI, 24 mM MgCI2;
Wash Buffer (WB): dPBS + 0.1% Tween 20 (polyoxyethylene sorbitan); and Blocking Buffer: 3% BSA, 0.05% Tween 20 in dPBS. Assay procedure:
(a) For plate coating, fill Nunc MaxiSorp piate with 100 ul per well of Poly-Glu-Tyr
(PGT) diluted in dPBS (various concentrations). The plate is the incubated overnight at 37°C.
The supernatant PGT is then disgarded, and the plates are washed 3X with Wash Buffer.
(b) The PDGF enzyme is then diluted in PB to an appropriate concentration, and
25 ul of this stock solution is added per well.
(c) ATP is then diluted (from 20 mM stock) to an appropriate concentration (0.5
nM- 2 uM) with PB. The phosphorylation reaction is commenced by addition of 25 ul ATP
solution to each well of the assay plate. Incubation is continued for about 10 minutes, with
shaking at room temperature.
(d) The reaction is stopped by aspirating off the reaction mixture. The plate is
then washed 4X with WB.
(e) The HRP-PY54 antibody is diluted to an appropriate concentration in blocking
buffer. 50 ul of this solution is then added per well, followed by incubation for 25-35 minutes
at room temperature. The antibody-containing solution is aspirated away, and the plate is
again washed 4X with WB.
(f) The extent of reaction is determined by measurement of light absorbance at
450 nm. First, color is developed by addition of TMB solution, 50 ul per well, and the reaction
is permitted to run until wells with positive signals achieve about 0.6-1.2 OD450 units. Color
development is then stopped by addition of 50 ul per well of 0.09 M H2SO4 . The background
controls are wells without PGT, but with all other components included. As aforementioned,
preferred signal is generally in the range of 0.6-1.2 OD units, with esentially no background.
The in vitro activity of the compounds of the present invention in inhibiting the PDGFD receptor may be determined by the following procedure.
Inhibition of tyrosine kinase activity may be measured using a recombinant enzyme in an assay that measures the ability of compounds to inhibit the phosphorylation of the exogenous substrate, polyGluTyr (PGT, Sigma™, 4:1). The cytoplasmic domain of the human PDGFp receptor (a.mino acids 559-1106) (Ishikawa, F., et al. Nature 338: 557-562, 1989) is expressed in Sf9 insect cells as a glutathione S-transferase (GST)-fusion protein using the baculovirus expression system. The protein is then purified from the lysates of these cells using glutathione agarose affinity columns.
The enzyme assay is performed in 96-well plates that are coated with the PGT substrate (0.625 jj.g PGT per well). Test compounds are diluted in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), and then added to the PGT plates so that the final concentration of DMSO in the assay is 1.6% (v/v). The recombinant enzyme is diluted in phosphorylation buffer (50 mM Hepes, pH
7.3, 125 mM NaCI, 24 mM MgCI2). The reaction is initiated by the addition of ATP to a final concentration of 10 ^iM. After a 10 minute incubation at room temperature with shaking, the reaction is aspirated, and the plates are washed with wash buffer (PBS-containing 0.1% Tween-20). The amount of phosphorylated PGT is quantitated by incubation with a horseradish peroxidase(HRP)-conjugated PY-54 antibody (Transduction Labs), developing with TMB peroxidase (TMB is 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine), and detection on a BioRad™ Microplate reader at 450 nM. Inhibition of the kinase enzymatic activity by the test compound is detected as a reduced absorbance, and the concentration of the compound that is required to inhibit the signal by 50% (under the circumstances of the assay) is reported as the IC50 value for the test compound.
To measure the ability of the compounds to inhibit PDGFRp tyrosine kinase activity for the full length protein that exists in a cellular context; the porcine aortic endothelial (PAE) cells transfected with the human PDGFRp (Westermark, Bengt, et. al., PNAS 87, pp128-132,1990) may be used. Cells are plated and allowed to attach to 96-well dishes in the same media (Ham's F12) with 10% FBS (fetal bovine serum) for 6-8 hours. The cells are washed, re-fed with serum depleted media, and allowed to incubate over night. Immediately prior to dosing with compound, the cells are re-fed with the serum depleted media. Test compounds, dissolved in DMSO, are diluted into the media (final DMSO concentration 0.5% (v/v)).. At the end of a 10 minutes incubation, PDGF-BB (100 ng/ml final) is added to the media for an 8 minute incubation. The cells are washed with Hepes buffered saline solution (HBSS) and lysed in 50 ul of HNTG buffer (20 mM Hepes, pH 7.5, 150 mM NaCI, 0.2% Triton™ X-100, 10% glycerol, plus 0.2 mM PMSF (phenymethylsulfonyl fluoride), 1 jig/ml pepstatin, 1 jig/ml leupeptin, 1 p.g/ml aprotonin, 2 mM sodium pyrophosphate, 2 mM sodium orthovanadate) and then diluted with 50 ul of HG dilution buffer (20 mM Hepes, pH 7.5, 10% glycerol, 0.2 mM PMSF (phenymethylsulfonyl fluoride), 1 p.g/ml pepstatin, 1 u.g/ml leupeptin, 1 jig/ml aprotonin, 2 mM sodium pyrophosphate, 2 mM sodium orthovanadate). The extent of phosphorylation of PDGFRp is measured using an ELISA assay. The 96-well Protein A coated plates are blocked with Superblock (Pierce) and coated with 0.5 jj.g per well anti- PDGFRp P20 antibody (Santa Cruz, catalog number SC-339).
Any unbound antibody is washed off the plates prior to addition of the cell lysate. After a 2 hour room temperature incubation of the lysates (50 ul) with the PDGFRp antibody, the PDGFRp associated phosphotyrosine is quantitated by development with the HRP-conjugated PY-54 antibody and TMB, as described above. The ability of the compounds to inhibit the PDGF-BB stimulated autophosphorylation reaction by 50% under the conditions used, relative to PDGF-BB-stimulated controls, is reported as the !C50 value for the test compound. The compounds of the present invention, including the examples recited below, generally have IC50 values using the foregoing procedure falling within the following range: 1-1000 nM.
The in vitro activity of the compounds of the present invention in inhibiting the KDR/VEGF receptor may be determined by the following procedure.

Human liver, cytosol incubations were conducted using commercially available cryopreserved cytosol (Tissue Transformation Technologies, 20 mg/mL protein, Lot #HHC-0255). Human liver cytosol was slowly thawed and diluted in 100 mM potassium phosphate buffer (pH 7.4) to a final protein concentration of 3.1 mg/mL and warmed to 37°C. Incubations were initiated with the addition of compound stock dissolved-in methanol. Total methanol concentration was kept at or below 1%. After reaction initiation, incubation was gently.mixed and a 0 min sample aliquot was collected and quenched in an equal volume of acetonitrile containing an-internal standard. Subsequent time points were collected at 5, 10, 15 and 30 minutes and quenched in the same manner. Samples were centrifuged and the supernatants were analyzed by HPLC/MS/MS using the ratio of the peak area response of the analyte to that of the internal standard. A linear regression was fit to the data and half-lifes were calculated from the slope of the line. The percent remaining calculations were performed using the half life of the fitted data. Control incubations were included for to monitor interday variability and non-cytosolic mediated loss. The compounds of the present invention were stable in human liver cytosal assay described above.
