2, 6-SUBSTITUTED -4-MONOSUBSTITUTED AMINO-PYRIMIDIEN AS PROSTAGLANDIN D2 RECEPTOR ANTAGONISTS

Abstract A plasma etching system having a wafer chuck with a magnet that applies a magnetic field over a wafer to shield the wafer from charged particles. The magnetic field is parallel with the wafer, and is strongest near the wafer surface. The magnetic field may be straight, or circular. In operation, electrons are deflected from the wafer by the Lorentz force, the wafer acquires a positive charge, and ions are deflected by electrostatic repulsion. Neutral species are allowed through the magnetic field, and they collide with the wafer. Neutral species generally provide more isotropic and material-selective etching than charged particles, so the present magnetic field tends to increase etch isotropy and material selectivity. Also, the magnetic field can protect the wafer from seasoning processes designed to clean unwanted films from the chamber surface as seasoning processes typically rely on etching by charged particles.

PROSTAGLANDIN D2 RECEPTOR ANTAGONISTS
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
The present invention is directed to pyrimidine compounds, their preparation, pharmaceutical compositions containing these compounds, and their pharmaceutical use in the treatment of disease states capable of being modulated by the inhibition of the prostaglandin D2 receptor.
Local allergen challenge in patients with allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma, allergic conjunctivitis and atopic dermatitis has been shown to result in rapid elevation of prostaglandin D2 "(PGD2)" levels in nasal and bronchial lavage fluids, teais and skin chamber fluids. PGD2 has many inflammatory actions, such as increasing vascular permeability in the conjunctiva and skin, increasing nasal airway resistance, airway narrowing and eosinophil infiltration into the conjunctiva and trachea.
PGD2 is the major cyclooxygenase product of arachidonic acid produced from mast cells on immunological challenge [Lewis, RA, Soter NA, Diamond PT, Austen KF, Oates JA, Roberts LJ II, prostaglandin D2 generation after activation of rat and human mast cells with anti-IgE, J. Immunol 129, 1627-1631, 1982]. Activated mast cells, a major source of PGD2, are one of the key players in driving the allergic response in conditions such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, allergic dermatitis and other diseases [Brightling CE, Bradding P, Pavord ID, Wardlaw AJ, New Insights into the role of the mast cell in asthma, Clin Exp Allergy 33, 550-556, 2003].

Many of the actions of PGD2 are mediated through its action on the D-type prostaglandin ("DP") receptor, a G protein-coupled receptor expressed on epithelium and smooth muscle.
In asthma, the respiratory epithelium has long been recognized as a key source of inflammatory cytokines and chemokines that drive the progression of the disease [Holgate S, Lackie P, Wilson S, Roche W, Davies D, Bronchial Epithelium as a Key Regulator of Airway Allergen Sensisitzation and Remodelling in Asthma, Am JRespir Crit Care Med. 162, 113-117, 2000]. In an experimental murine model of asthma, the DP receptor is dramatically up-regulated on airway epithelium on antigen challenge [Matsuoka T5 Hirata M, Tanaka H, Takahashi Y, Murata T, Kabashima K, Sugimoto Y, Kobayashi T, Ushikubi F, Aze Y, Eguchi N, Urade Y, Yoshida N, Kimura K, Mizoguchi A, Honda Y, Nagai H, Narumiya S, prostaglandin D2 as a mediator of allergic asthma, Science 287, 2013-2017, 2000]. In knockout mice, lacking the DP receptor, there is a marked reduction in airway hyperreactivity and chronic inflammation [Matsuoka T, Hirata M, Tanaka H, Takahashi Y, Murata T, Kabashima K, Sugimoto Y, Kobayashi T, Ushikubi F, Aze Y, Eguchi N, Urade Y, Yoshida N, Kimura K, Mizoguchi A, Honda Y, Nagai H, Narumiya S, Prostaglandin D2 as a mediator of allergic asthma, Science 287, 2013-2017, 2000]; two of the cardinal features of human asthma.
The DP receptor is also thought to be involved in human allergic rhinitis, a frequent allergic disease that is characterized by the symptoms of sneezing, itching, rhinorea and nasal congestion. Local administration of PGD2 to the nose causes a dose dependent increase in nasal congestion [Doyle WJ, Boehm S, Skoner DP, Physiologic responses to intranasal dose-response challenges with histamine, methacholine, bradykinin, and prostaglandin in adult volunteers with and without nasal allergy, J Allergy Clin Immunol 86(6 Pt 1), 924-35,1990].
REPORTED DEVELOPMENTS
DP receptor antagonists have been shown to reduce airway inflammation in a guinea pig experimental asthma model [Arimura A, Yasui K, Kishino J, Asanuma F, Hasegawa H, Kakudo S, Ohtani M, Arita H (2001), Prevention of allergic inflammation by a novel prostaglandin receptor antagonist, S-5751, J Pharmacol Exp Ther. 298(2), 411-9, 2001]. PGD2, therefore appears to act on the DP receptor and plays an important role in elicitation of certain key features of allergic asthma.
DP antagonists have been shown to be effective at alleviating the symptoms of allergic rhinitis in multiple species, and more specifically have been shown to inhibit the antigen-induced nasal congestion, the most manifest symptom of allergic rhinitis [Jones, T. R., Savoie, d, Robichaud, A., Sturino, C, Scheigetz, J., Lachance, N., Roy, B., Boyd, M.9 Abraham, W., Studies with a DP receptor

antagonist in sheep and guinea pig models of allergic rhinitis, Am. J. Resp. Crit. Care Med. 167, A218, 2003; and Arimura A, Yasui K, Kishino J, Asanuma F, Hasegawa H, Kakudo S, Ohtani M, Arita H Prevention of allergic inflammation by a novel prostaglandin receptor antagonist, S-515l.JPJiarmacoI Exp Ther. 298(2), 411-9,2001].
DP antagonists are also effective in experimental models of allergic conjunctivitis and allergic dermatitis [Arimura A, Yasui K, Kishino J, Asanuma F, Hasegawa H, Kakudo S, Ohtani M, Arita H, Prevention of allergic inflammation by a novel prostaglandin receptor antagonist, S-5751.

Chem. 12,5361-5378,2004].
Applicants herein disclose a novel 2,6-substituted^monosubstifritedaminopyrimidine compound having valuable pharmaceutical properties; particularly the ability to associate with and regulate the DP receptor.

"Pharmaceutical^ acceptable prodrugs" as used herein refers to those prodrugs of the compounds of the present invention which are, within the scope of sound medical judgment, suitable for use in


contact with the tissues of patients with undue toxicity, irritation, allergic response commensurate with a reasonable benefit/risk ratio, and effective for their intended use of the compounds of the invention. The term "prodrug" refers to compounds that are transformed in vivo to yield a parent compound of the present invention, for example by hydrolysis in blood. Functional groups that may be rapidly transformed, by metabolic cleavage, in vivo form a class of groups reactive with the carboxyl group of the compounds of this invention. They include, but are not limited to such groups as alkanoyl (such as acetyl, propanoyl^ butanoyl, and the like), unsubstituted and substituted aroyl (such as benzoyl and substituted benzoyl), alkoxycarbony] (such as etboxycarbonyl), trialkylsiryl (such as trimethyl and triethysilyl), and monoesters formed with dicarboxylic acids (such as succinyl). Because of the ease with which the metabolically cleavable groups of the compounds of this invention are cleaved in vivo, the compounds bearing such groups act as pro-drugs. The compounds bearing the metabolically cleavable groups have the advantage that they may exhibit improved bioavailability as a result of enhanced solubility and/or rate of absorption conferred upon the parent compound by virtue of the presence of the metabolically cleavable group.

Some of the compounds of the present invention are basic, and such compounds are useful in the form of the free base or in the form of a phannaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof.
Acid addition salts are a more convenient form for use; and in practice, use of the salt form inherently amounts to use of the free base form. TTie acids which can be used to prepare the acid addition salts

include preferably those which produce, when combined with the fiee base, pharmaceutically acceptable salts, that is, salts whose anions are non-toxic to the patient in pharmaceutical doses of the salts, so that the beneficial inhibitory effects inherent in the free base are not vitiated by side effects ascribable to the anions. Although pharmaceutically acceptable salts of said basic compounds are preferred, all acid addition salts are useful as sources of the free base form even if the particular salt, per ses is desired only as an intermediate product as, for example, when the salt is formed only for purposes of purification, and identification, or when it is used as intermediate in preparing a pharmaceutically acceptable salt by ion exchange procedures. In particular, acid addition salts can be prepared by separately reacting the purified compound in its free base form with a suitable organic or inorganic acid and isolating the salt thus formed. Pharmaceutically acceptable salts within the scope of the invention include those derived from mineral acids and or^nic acids. Exemplary acid addition salts include the hydrobromide hydrochloride, sulfate, bisulfate, phosphate, nitrate, acetate, oxalate, valerate, oleate, palmitate, quinates, stearate, Iaurate, borate, benzoate, lactate, phosphate, tosylate, citrate, maleate, fumarate, succinate, tartrate, naphthylate, mesylate, glucoheptonate, lactiobionate, sulfonates, mal onates, salicylates, propionates, methylene-bis-iMiydroxyimphthoates, gentisates, isethionates, di-p-toluoyltartrates, methanesulfonates, ethanesulfonates, benzenesulfonates, p-toluenesulfonates, cyclohexylsulfamates and laurylsulfonate salts. See, for example S.M. Berge, et al., "Pharmaceutical Salts/' J. Pharm. Set* 66. 1-19 (1977), which is incorporated herein by reference.
Where the compound of the invention is substituted with an acidic moiety, base addition salts may be formed and are simply a more convenient form for use; and in practice, use of the salt form inherently amounts to use of the free acid form. The bases which can be used to prepare the base addition salts include preferably those which produce, when combined with the free acid, pharmaceutically acceptable salts, that is, salts whose cations are non-toxic to the patient in pharmaceutical doses of the salts, so that the beneficial inhibitory effects inherent in the free base are not vitiated by side effects ascribable to the cations.

Total daily dose of the compounds of this invention administered to a patient in single or divided doses may be in amounts, for example, of from about 0.001 to about 100 mg/kg body weight daily and preferably 0.01 to 10 mg/kg/day. For example, in an adult, the doses are generally from about 0.01 to about 100, preferably about 0.01 to about 10, mg/kg body weight per day by inhalation, from about 0.01 to about 100, preferably 0.1 to 70, more especially 0.5 to 10, mg/kg body weight per day by oral administration, and from about 0.01 to about 50, preferably 0.01 to 10, mg/kg body weight per day by intravenous adruimstration. The percentage of active ingredient in a composition may be varied, though it should constitute a proportion such that a suitable dosage shall be obtained. Dosage unit compositions may contain such amounts of such submultiples thereof as may be used to make up the daily dose. Obviously, several unit dosage forms may be administered at about the same time. A dosage may be administered as frequently as necessary in order to obtain the desired therapeutic effect Some patients may respond rapidly to a higher or lower dose and may find much weaker maintenance

doses adequate. For other patients, it may be necessary to have long-term treatments at the rate of 1 to 4 doses per day, in accordance with the physiological requirements of each particular patient It goes without saying that, for other patients, it will be necessary to prescribe not more than one or two doses per day.
The formulations can be prepared in unit dosage form by any of the methods well known in the art of pharmacy. Such methods include the step of bringing into association the active ingredient with the carrier that constitutes one or more accessory ingredients. In general the formulations are prepared by uniformly and intimately bringing into association the active ingredient with liquid carriers or finely divided solid carriers or both, and then, if necessary, shaping the product
The formulations may be presented in unit-dose or multi-dose containers, for example sealed ampoules and vials with elastomeric stoppers, and may be stored in a freeze-dried (lyophilized) condition requiring only the addition of the sterile liquid carrier, for example water for injections^ immediately prior to use. Extemporaneous injection solutions and suspensions may be prepared from sterile powders, granules and tablets of the kind previously described.
Compounds of the invention may be prepared by the application or adaptation of known methods, by which is meant methods used heretofore or described in the literature, for example those described by ILC. Larock in Comprehensive Organic Transformations, VCH publishers, 1989.
