OXAZOLE DERIVATIVES OF TETRACYCLINES
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to novel oxazole derivatives of tetracyclines which are useful as antibiotic agents and exhibit antibacterial activity against a wide spectrum of organisms including organisms which are resistant to tetracyclines and other antibiotics. This invention also relates to novel tetracycline intermediates useful for making the novel compounds and novel methods for producing the novel compounds and the intermediate compounds.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
Since 1947 a variety of tetracycline antibiotics have been synthesized and described for the treatment of infectious diseases in man and animals. Tetracyclines inhibit protein synthesis by binding to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome preventing binding of aminoacyl RNA (Chopra, Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology, Vol.
,78, 317-392, Springer-Verlag, 1985). Resistance to tetracyclines has emerged among many clinically important microorganisms which limit the utility of these antibiotics. There are two major mechanisms of bacterial resistance to tetracyclines:
a) energy-dependent efflux of the antibiotic mediated by proteins located in the cytoplasmic membrane which prevents intracellular accumulation ~of tetracycline (S.
B. Levy, et al., Antimicrob. Agents Chemotherapy 33, 1373-1374 (1989); and b) ribosomal protection mediated by a cytoplasmic protein which interacts with the ribosome such that tetracycline no longer binds or inhibits protein synthesis (A. A.
Salvers, B. S. Speers and N. B. Shoemaker, Mol. Microbiol, 4:151-156, 1990).
The efflux mechanism of resistance is encoded by resistance determinants designated tetA-tetL. They are common in many Gram-negative bacteria (resistance genes Class A-E), such as Enterobacteriaceae, Pseudomonas, Haemophilus and Aeromonas, and in Gram- positive bacteria (resistance genes Class K and L), such as Staphylococcus, Bacillus and Streptococcus. The ribosomal protection mechanism of resistance is encoded by resistance determinants designated TetM, N
and O, and is common in Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Campylobacter, Gardnerella, Haemophilus and Mycoplasma (A. A. Salyers, B. S. Speers and N. B.
Shoemaker, Mol. Microbiol, 4:151-156 1990).
A particularly useful tetracycline compound is 7-(dimethylamino)- 6-demethyl-6-deoxytetracycline, known as minocycline (see U.S. Pat. No. 3,148,212, U.S.
Pat. No.
RE 26,253 and U.S. Pat. No. 3,226,436 discussed below). However, strains harboring the tetB (efflux in gram-negative bacteria) mechanism, but not tetK
(efflux in Staphylococcus) are resistant to minocycline. Also, strains carrying tetM
(ribosomal protection) are resistant to minocycline. This invention describes the synthesis of novel tetracycline compounds which demonstrate significant in vitro and in vivo activity vs. tetracycline and minocycline susceptible strains and some tetracycline and minocycline resistant strains, that is, those harboring the tetM
(ribosomal protection) resistance determinants.

Martell et al., U.S. Pat. No. 3,518,306 discloses tetracyclines which possess in vivo antibacterial activity.
In U.S. Pat. No. 5,021,407 a method of overcoming the resistance of tetracycline resistant bacteria is disclosed. The method involves utilizing a blocking agent compound in conjunction with a tetracycline type antibiotic. This patent does not disclose novel tetracycline compounds which themselves have activity against resistant organisms. Described in U.S. Pat. No. 5,494,903 are 7-substituted-9-substitutedamino-6-demethyl-6-deoxytetracyclines which have broad spectrum antibacterial activity.
In summary, none of the above patents teach or suggest the novel compounds of this application. In addition, none of the above patents teach or suggest novel tetracycline compounds of the invention having activity against tetracycline and minocycline resistant strains as well as strains which are normally susceptible to tetracyclines.

OH o off o 0 Reactions are performed in a solvent appropriate to the reagents and materials employed and suitable for the transformation being effected. It is understood by those skilled in the art of organic synthesis that the various functionalities present on the molecule must be consistent with the chemical transformations proposed.
This may necessitate judgement as to the order of synthetic steps, protecting groups, if required, and deprotection conditions. Substituents on the starting materials may be incompatible with some of the reaction conditions. Such restrictions to the substituents which are compatible with the reaction conditions will be apparent to one skilled in the art.
Some of the compounds of the hereinbefore described schemes have center of asymmetry. The compounds may, therefore, exist in at least two and often more stereoisomeric forms. The present invention encompasses all stereoisomers of the compounds whether free from other stereoisomers or admixed with other stereoisomers in any proportion and thus includes, for instance, racemic mixture of enantiomers as well as the diastereomeric mixture of isomers. The absolute configuration of any compound may be determined by conventional X-ray crystal log raphy.
Pharmaceutically acceptable salts of the compounds of the invention may be obtained as metal complexes such as aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese and complex salts; inorganic and organic salts and corresponding Mannich base adducts using methods known to those skilled in the art (Richard C.
Larock, Comprehensive Organic Transformations, VCH Publishers, 411-415, 1989).
Preferably, the compounds of the invention are obtained as inorganic salts such as hydrochloric, hydrobromic, hydroiodic, phosphoric, nitric or sulfate; or organic salts such as acetate, benzoate, citrate, cysteine or other amino acids, fumarate, glycolate, maleate, succinate, tartrate alkylsulfonate or arylsulfonate. The salt formation preferentially occurs with the C(4)-dimethylamino group when forming inorganic salts. The salts are preferred for oral and parenteral administration.

Standard Pharmacological Test Procedures Methods for in Vitro Antibacterial evaluation The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) Antimicrobial susceptibility testing. The in vitro activities of the antibiotics are determined by the broth microdilution method as recommended by the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS) (1 ). Mueller-Hinton II
broth (MHBII)(BBL Cockeysville, MD) is the medium employed in the testing procedures.
Microtiter plates containing serial dilutions of each antimicrobial agent are inoculated with each organism to yield the appropriate density (105 CFU/ml) in a 100 ~I
final volume. The plates are incubated for 18 - 22 hours at 35°C in ambient air. The minimal inhibitory concentration for all isolates is defined as the lowest concentration of antimicrobial agent that completely inhibits the growth of the organism as detected by the unaided eye.

r r When the compounds of the invention are employed as antibacterials, they can be combined with one or more pharmaceutically acceptable carriers, for example, solvents, diluents and the like, and may be administered orally in such forms as tablets, capsules, dispersible powders, granules, or suspensions containing, for example, from about 0.05 to 5% of suspending agent, syrups containing, for example, from about 10 to 50% of sugar, and elixirs containing, for example, from about 20 to 50% ethanol, and the like, or parenterally in the form of sterile injectable solutions or suspensions containing from about 0.05 to 5% suspending agent in an isotonic medium. Such pharmaceutical preparations may contain, for example, from about 25 to about 90% of the active ingredient in combination with the carrier, more usually between about 5% and 60% by weight.
An effective amount of compound from about 2.0 mg/kg of body weight to about 100.0 mg/kg of body weight may be administered one to five times per day via any typical route of administration including but not limited to oral, parenteral (including subcutaneous, intravenous, intramuscular, intrasternal injection or infusion techniques), topical or rectal, in dosage unit formulations containing conventional non-toxic pharmaceutically acceptable carriers, adjuvants and vehicles. It will be understood, however, that the specific dose level and frequency of dosage for any particular patient may be varied and will depend upon a variety of factors including the activity of the specific compound employed, the metabolic stability and length of action of that compound, the age, body weight, general health, sex, diet, mode and time of administration, rate of excretion, drug combination, the severity of the particular condition, and the host undergoing therapy.
These active compounds may be administered orally as well as by intravenous, intramuscular, or subcutaneous routes. Solid carriers include starch, lactose, dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, sucrose and kaolin, while liquid carriers include sterile water, polyethylene glycols, non-ionic surfactants and edible oils such as corn, peanut and sesame oils, as are appropriate to the nature of the active ingredient and the particular form of administration desired. Adjuvants customarily employed in the preparation of pharmaceutical compositions may be advantageously included, such as flavoring agents, coloring agents, preserving agents, and antioxidants, for example, vitamin E, ascorbic acid, BHT and BHA.

The preferred pharmaceutical compositions of compounds of the invention from the standpoint of ease of preparation and administration are solid compositions, particularly tablets and hard-filled or liquid-filled capsules. Oral administration of the compounds is preferred.
These active compounds may also be administered parenterally or intraperitoneally.
Solutions or suspensions of these active compounds as a free base or pharmacologically acceptable salt can be prepared in water suitably mixed with a surfactant such as hydroxy-propylcellulose. Dispersions can also be prepared in glycerol, liquid, polyethylene glycols and mixtures thereof in oils. Under ordinary conditions of storage and use, these preparations contain a preservative to prevent the growth of microorganisms.
The pharmaceutical forms suitable for injectable use include sterile aqueous solutions or dispersions and sterile powders for the extemporaneous preparation of sterile injectable solutions or dispersions. In all cases, the form must be sterile and must be fluid to the extent that easy syringability exists. It must be stable under the conditions of manufacture and storage and must be preserved against the contaminating action of microorganisms such as bacterial and fungi. The carrier can be a solvent or dispersion medium containing, for example, water, ethanol, polyol (e.g., glycerol, propylene glycol and liquid polyethylene glycol), suitable mixtures thereof, and vegetable oil.

The invention will be more fully described in conjunction with the following specific examples which are not to be construed as limiting the scope of the invention.
Example of Procedure A

(6aR,7aS,8S,11 aS)-5,8-bis(dimethylamino)-2-(2,2-diphenylvinyl)-9,11 a,12-trihydroxy 11,13-dioxo-6,6a,7,7a, 8,11,11 a,13-octahydrotetraceno[2,1-d][1,3]oxazole-10 carboxamide 9-aminominocycline sulfate salt (0.500g, 0.748 mmol) is dissolved in anhydrous DMF and treated with (3-phenylcinnamaldehyde (0.779g, 3.74 mmol, 5 equivalents) The solution is then treated with DDQ (0.085 g, 0.374 mmol, 0.5 equivalents) and stirred at room temperature for 5 min. ES+ mass spectrometry showed a 1:1 ratio of product and starting material. A second portion of DDQ
(0.068 g, 0.300 mmol, 0.4 equivalents) is added. After approximately 5 minutes, acetonitrile (7.5 mL) is added, and the entire reaction mixture is poured slowly into ether (750 mL.) The pink solid is removed by filtration and washed with fresh ether to yield 0.480g of the crude product. This material is dissolved in water (75 mL) to give a solution at pH 2.2, which is extracted with dichloromethane (2 X 100 mL.) The pH of the aqueous layer is raised to 3.0 with aqueous ammonia, and the solution is again H3C~N.CH3 .. Fi3C~N~CH3 extracted with dichloromethane (2 X 100 mL.) The four organic extracts are dried (Na2S04), filtered and concentrated to a volume of about 2 mL. A small portion of methanol (1 mL) is added, and the concentrated solution is treated dropwise with 1 M
HCI in ether. The solid precipitate is filtered, washed with fresh ether and dried under vacuum the product as its HCI salt.
Selected 1 H NMR signals: 5 4.26 (s, 1 H), 7.13 (s, 1 H), 7.26-7.45 (m, 8H), 7.63 (s, 1 H), 9.08 (s, 1 H), 9.54 (s, 1 H).
The compounds of this invention listed below in Examples 2 to 37 are prepared substantially following the method described in detail hereinabove in Example using procedure A.

9-aminominocycline sulfate salt (1.0 g, 1.50 mmol) is dissolved in DMF (50 mL) and treated with a solution of 2-chloro-1,1,1-trimethoxyethane (0.463 g, 3.00 mmol, 2 equivalents). The reaction is stirred at room temperature until mass spectrometry shows conversion to the chloromethylbenzoxazole derivative. The solution is then treated with n-propylamine (10 mL, excess) and stirred until mass spectrometry shows conversion to the n-propylaminomethyl benzoxazole. The mixture is concentrated under reduced pressure to remove excess n-propylamine, and then poured slowly into ether (1 L) and HCI/ether is added to precipate the salt.
The solid is rinsed with fresh ether and dried under vacuum. The crude solid is dissolved in water (100 mL) giving a solution at pH 2. The pH is raised successively by 0.5 units with aqueous ammonia, and extracted with dichloromethane. The fractions extracted at pH 4-4.5 are combined, dried (Na~S04), filtered and concentrated nearly to dryness. A small volume of methanol is added and the solution is treated with HCI in ether. The precipitated solid is collected by filtration, washed with fresh ether and dried under vacuum to yield 0.067 g of the product as its HCI salt.
