Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to compounds and composition for inhibition of

Nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase ("NAMPT"), their synthesis, applications and antidote.

Background of the Invention

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) plays fundamental roles in both cellular energy metabolism and cellular signaling. In energy metabolism, the

chemistry of the pyridine ring allows NAD to readily accept and donate electrons in hydride transfer reactions catalyzed by numerous dehydrogenases.

The preparation of a class of compounds, comprising several subclasses, which act as inhibitors of the formation of nicotinamide adenyl nucleotide, and their use thereof as anti-tumor agents, is already described in the patent applications WO00/50399, W097/48695, W097/48696, W097/48397, WO99/31063,

WO99/31060, WO99/31087, WO99/31064, WO00/50399 and WO03/80054.

One of these inhibitors, (E)-N-[4-(l-benzoylpiperidin-4-yl)butyl]-3-(pyridine- 3-yl)-acrylamide also known as AP0866, FK866, WK175, or WK22.175 and hereinafter referred to as FK866 [International Non-proprietary Name], is especially described in the literature as an anticancer agent. FK866 may be used for treatment of diseases implicating deregulated apoptosis such as cancer. It has been demonstrated in the prior art that FK866 interferes with nicotinamide adenyl dinucleotide (also known and hereinafter referred to as NAD) biosynthesis and induces apoptotic cell death without any DNA damaging effects.

Additionally, FK866 ((E)-N-[4-(l-benzoylpiperidin-4-yl) butyl]-3-(pyridin-3- yl) acrylamide) induces apoptosis in HepG2 cells without having primary effects on cellular energy metabolism. (Hasmann M, Schemainda I. FK866, a Highly Specific Noncompetitive Inhibitor of Nicotinamide Phosphoribosyltransferase, Represents a Novel Mechanism for Induction of Tumor Cell Apoptosis. Cancer Res 2003;63:7436- 7442. [PubMed: 14612543]) Instead of causing immediate cytotoxicity, it inhibits NAMPT and depletes the cells of NAD, suggesting that FK866 could be a promising agent against cancer cells that rely on nicotinamide to synthesize NAD. The crystal structure of the NAMPT-FK866 complex reveals that the compound binds at the nicotinamide-binding site of NAMPT to inhibit its activity. FK866 has been tested in a murine renal cell carcinoma model and shown to display anti-tumor, antimetastatic, and anti-angiogenic activities (Drevs J, et al. Antiangiogenic potency of

FK866/K22.175, a new inhibitor of intracellular NAD biosynthesis, in murine renal cell carcinoma. Anticancer Res 2003;23:4853-4858. [PubMed: 14981935]).

In a mouse mammary carcinoma model, FK866 also induces a delay in tumor growth and an enhancement in tumor radiosensitivity accompanied with dose- dependent decreases in NAD levels, pH, and energy status. A chemosensitizing effect of FK866 has also been observed on anti-neoplastic l-methyl-3-nitro-l- nitrosoguanidinium (MNNG)-induced cell death in THP-1 and K562 leukemia cell lines (Pogrebniak A, et al. Chemopotentiating effects of a novel NAD biosynthesis inhibitor, FK866, in combination with antineoplastic agents. Eur J Med Res

2006;11 :313-321. [PubMed: 17052966]).

The efficacy of GMX1777 was evaluated in xenograft models and the pharmacokinetic profile of GMX1778 and its effect on nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide cellular levels was measured by liquid chromatography/mass

spectrometry. (Beauparlant P., et al. Preclinical development of the nicotinamide phosphoribosyl transferase inhibitor prodrug GMX1777. Anticancer Drugs. 2009 Jun;20(5):346-54).

GMX1777 is a water-soluble intravenously administered prodrug of

GMX1778 that Gemin X in-licensed from LEO Pharma (LEO numbers: EB1627 and CHS828, respectively). These compounds and other substituted cyanoguanidines have the structures of Table 1. None of the compounds of the present invention are cyanoguanidines .

TABLE 1 :

Substituted cyanoguanidines with defined pharmacological effects: A Cytotoxic CHS 828;

B Potassium channel openers pinacidil (BI) and 12 g of compound as described in Perez-Medrano et al (B2); and c Histamine-II receptor antagonist cimetidine. (from Lovborg et ai. BMC Research Notes 2009 2: 114 doi: 10.1186/1756-0500-2-114) More recently, CHS-828 has been identified as a NAMPT inhibitor (Olesen

UH, et al. Anticancer agent CHS-828 inhibits cellular synthesis of NAD. Biochem Biophys Res Commun 2008;367:799-804. [PubMed: 18201551]). CHS-828 has been shown that this compound potently inhibits cell growth in a broad range of tumor cell lines, although the detailed mechanism for this inhibitory effect of CHS-828 remains undetermined (Ravaud A, et al. Phase I study and guanidine kinetics of CHS-828, a guanidine-containing compound, administered orally as a single dose every 3 weeks in solid tumors: an ECSG/EORTC study. Eur J Cancer 2005;41 :702-707. [PubMed: 15763645]). Both FK866 and CHS-828 are currently in clinical trials for cancer treatments.

There are numerous uses for drugs which inhibit NAMPT.

Lack of NAMPT expression strongly affects development of both T and B lymphocytes. By using mutant forms of this protein and a well-characterized pharmacological inhibitor (FK866), authors demonstrated that the ability of the NAMPT to regulate cell viability during genotoxic stress requires its enzymatic activity. Collectively, these data demonstrate that NAMPT participates in cellular resistance to genotoxic/oxidative stress, and it may confer to cells of the immune system the ability to survive during stressful situations such as inflammation.

(Rongvaux, A., et al. The Journal of Immunology , 2008, 181 : 4685-4695).

NAMPT may also have effects on endothelium (EC) in relation to high glucose levels, oxidative stress and on aging. It is also believed that NAMPT may enable proliferating human EC to resist the oxidative stress of aging and of high glucose, and to productively use excess glucose to support replicative longevity and angiogenic activity.

This list is not meant to be exclusive, but instead merely representative of the classes of excipients and the particular excipients which may be used in dosage forms of the present invention.

The compounds of the invention can form salts which are also within the scope of this invention. Reference to a compound of the Formula herein is understood to include reference to salts thereof, unless otherwise indicated. The term "salt(s)", as employed herein, denotes acidic salts formed with inorganic and/or organic acids, as well as basic salts formed with inorganic and/or organic bases. In addition, when a compound of the Formulas contains both a basic moiety, such as, but not limited to a pyridine or imidazole, and an acidic moiety, such as, but not limited to a carboxylic acid, zwitterions ("inner salts") may be formed and are included within the term

"salt(s)" as used herein. Pharmaceutically acceptable (i.e., non-toxic, physiologically acceptable) salts are preferred, although other salts are also useful. Salts of the compounds of the Formulas may be formed, for example, by reacting a compound of Formulas with an amount of acid or base, such as an equivalent amount, in a medium such as one in which the salt precipitates or in an aqueous medium followed by lyophilization.

Exemplary acid addition salts include acetates, ascorbates, benzoates, benzenesulfonates, bisulfates, borates, butyrates, citrates, camphorates,

camphorsulfonates, fumarates, hydrochlorides, hydrobromides, hydroiodides, lactates, maleates, methanesulfonates, naphthalenesulfonates, nitrates, oxalates, phosphates, propionates, salicylates, succinates, sulfates, tartarates, thiocyanates,

toluenesulfonates (also known as tosylates,) and the like. Additionally, acids which are generally considered suitable for the formation of pharmaceutically useful salts from basic pharmaceutical compounds are discussed, for example, by P. Stahl et al, Camille G. (eds.) Handbook of Pharmaceutical Salts. Properties, Selection and Use. (2002) Zurich: Wiley- VCH; S. Berge et al, Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences (1977) 66(1) 1-19; P. Gould, International J. of Pharmaceutics (1986) 33 201-217; Anderson et al, The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry (1996), Academic Press, New York; and in The Orange Book (Food & Drug Administration, Washington, D.C. on their website). These disclosures are incorporated herein by reference thereto.

Exemplary basic salts include ammonium salts, alkali metal salts such as sodium, lithium, and potassium salts, alkaline earth metal salts such as calcium and magnesium salts, salts with organic bases (for example, organic amines) such as dicyclohexylamines, t-butyl amines, and salts with amino acids such as arginine, lysine and the like. Basic nitrogen-containing groups may be quartemized with agents such as lower alkyl halides (e.g. methyl, ethyl, and butyl chlorides, bromides and iodides), dialkyl sulfates (e.g. dimethyl, diethyl, and dibutyl sulfates), long chain halides (e.g. decyl, lauryl, and stearyl chlorides, bromides and iodides), aralkyl halides (e.g. benzyl and phenethyl bromides), and others.

All such acid salts and base salts are intended to be pharmaceutically acceptable salts within the scope of the invention and all acid and base salts are considered equivalent to the free forms of the corresponding compounds for purposes of the invention.

Pharmaceutically acceptable esters of the compounds of the invention are also considered to be part of the invention. Pharmaceutically acceptable esters of the present compounds include the following groups: (1) carboxylic acid esters obtained by esterification of the hydroxy groups, in which the non-carbonyl moiety of the carboxylic acid portion of the ester grouping is selected from straight or branched chain alkyl (for example, acetyl, n-propyl, t-butyl, or n-butyl), alkoxyalkyl (for example, methoxymethyl), aralkyl (for example, benzyl), aryloxyalkyl (for example, phenoxymethyl), aryl (for example, phenyl optionally substituted with, for example, halogen, Ci- 4 alkyl, or Ci- 4 alkoxy or amino); (2) sulfonate esters, such as alkyl- or aralkylsulfonyl (for example, methanesulfonyl); (3) amino acid esters (for example, L-valyl or L-isoleucyl); (4) phosphonate esters and (5) mono-, di- or triphosphate esters. The phosphate esters may be further esterified by, for example, a Ci- 2 o alcohol or reactive derivative thereof, or by a 2,3-di(C 6 - 24 )acyl glycerol.

Prodrugs and solvates of the compounds of the invention are also

contemplated herein. A discussion of prodrugs is provided in T. Higuchi and V. Stella, Pro-drugs as Novel Delivery Systems (1987) 14 of the A.C.S. Symposium Series, and in Bioreversible Carriers in Drug Design, (1987) Edward B. Roche, ed., American Pharmaceutical Association and Pergamon Press. The term "prodrug" means a compound (e.g, a drug precursor) that is transformed in vivo to yield a compound of the instant Formulas or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, hydrate or solvate of the compound. The transformation may occur by various mechanisms (e.g., by metabolic or chemical processes), such as, for example, through hydrolysis in blood. A discussion of the use of prodrugs is provided by T. Higuchi and W. Stella, "Pro-drugs as Novel Delivery Systems," Vol. 14 of the A.C.S. Symposium Series, and in Bioreversible Carriers in Drug Design, ed. Edward B. Roche, American

Pharmaceutical Association and Pergamon Press, 1987.

For example, if a compound of the instant Formulas or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt, hydrate or solvate of the compound contains a carboxylic acid functional group, a prodrug can comprise an ester formed by the replacement of the hydrogen atom of the acid group with a group such as, for example, (Ci-Cg)alkyl, (C 2 - Ci 2 )alkanoyloxymethyl, l-(alkanoyloxy)ethyl having from 4 to 9 carbon atoms, 1- methyl-l-(alkanoyloxy)-ethyl having from 5 to 10 carbon atoms,

alkoxycarbonyloxymethyl having from 3 to 6 carbon atoms, 1- (alkoxycarbonyloxy)ethyl having from 4 to 7 carbon atoms, 1 -methyl- 1- (alkoxycarbonyloxy)ethyl having from 5 to 8 carbon atoms, N-

(alkoxycarbonyl)aminomethyl having from 3 to 9 carbon atoms, 1-(N- (alkoxycarbonyl)amino)ethyl having from 4 to 10 carbon atoms, 3-phthalidyl, 4- crotonolactonyl, gamma-butyrolacton-4-yl, di-N,N-(C i -C 2 )alkylamino(C 2 -C3)alkyl (such as β-dimethylaminoethyl), carbamoyl-(Ci-C 2 )alkyl, N,N-di(Ci- C 2 )alkylcarbamoyl-(Ci-C 2 )alkyl and piperidino-, pyrrolidino- or morpholino(C 2 - C 3 )alkyl, and the like.

Similarly, if a compound of the instant Formulas contains an alcohol functional group, a prodrug can be formed by the replacement of the hydrogen atom of the alcohol group with a group such as, for example, (Ci-C 6 )alkanoyloxymethyl, 1- ((Ci-Ce)alkanoyloxy)ethyl, 1 -methyl- l-((Ci-C 6 )alkanoyloxy)ethyl, (Ci-

C 6 )alkoxycarbonyloxymethyl, N-(Ci-C 6 )alkoxycarbonylaminomethyl, succinoyl, (Ci- C 6 )alkanoyl, a-amino(Ci-C4)alkanyl, arylacyl and a-aminoacyl, or a-aminoacyl- a- aminoacyl, where each α-aminoacyl group is independently selected from the naturally occurring L-amino acids, P(0)(OH) 2 , -P(0)(0(Ci-Ce)alkyl) 2 or glycosyl (the radical resulting from the removal of a hydroxyl group of the hemiacetal form of a carbohydrate), and the like.

If a compound of the instant invention incorporates an amine functional group, a prodrug can be formed by the replacement of a hydrogen atom in the amine group with a group such as, for example, R-carbonyl, RO-carbonyl, NRR'-carbonyl where R and R are each independently (Ci-Cio)alkyl, (C3-C7) cycloalkyl, benzyl, or R- carbonyl is a natural a-aminoacyl or natural a-aminoacyl, -C(OH)C(0)OY 1 wherein Y 1 is H, (Ci-C 6 )alkyl or benzyl, -C(OY 2 )Y 3 wherein Y 2 is (C 1 -C4) alkyl and Y 3 is (d- C 6 )alkyl, carboxy(Ci-Ce)alkyl, amino(Ci-C4)alkyl or mono-N- or di-N,N-(Ci- C 6 )alkylaminoalkyl, -C(Y 4 )Y 5 wherein Y 4 is H or methyl and Y 5 is mono-N- or di- N,N-(Ci-C 6 )alkylamino morpholino, piperidin-l-yl or pyrrolidin-l-yl, and the like.

One or more compounds of the invention may exist in unsolvated as well as solvated forms with pharmaceutically acceptable solvents such as water, ethanol, and the like, and it is intended that the invention embrace both solvated and unsolvated forms. "Solvate" means a physical association of a compound of this invention with one or more solvent molecules. This physical association involves varying degrees of ionic and covalent bonding, including hydrogen bonding. In certain instances the solvate will be capable of isolation, for example when one or more solvent molecules are incorporated in the crystal lattice of the crystalline solid. "Solvate" encompasses both solution-phase and isolatable solvates. Non-limiting examples of suitable solvates include ethanolates, methanolates, and the like. "Hydrate" is a solvate wherein the solvent molecule is H 2 0.

One or more compounds of the invention may optionally be converted to a solvate. Preparation of solvates is generally known. Thus, for example, M. Caira et al, J. Pharmaceutical Sci., 93(3), 601-611 (2004) describe the preparation of the solvates of the antifungal fluconazole in ethyl acetate as well as from water. Similar preparations of solvates, hemisolvate, hydrates and the like are described by E. C. van Tonder et al, AAPS PharmSciTech., 5(1), article 12 (2004); and A. L. Bingham et al, Chem. Commun., 603-604 (2001). A typical, non-limiting, process involves dissolving the inventive compound in desired amounts of the desired solvent (organic or water or mixtures thereof) at a higher than ambient temperature, and cooling the solution at a rate sufficient to form crystals which are then isolated by standard methods. Analytical techniques such as, for example I. R. spectroscopy, show the presence of the solvent (or water) in the crystals as a solvate (or hydrate). Compounds of the invention, and salts, solvates, esters and prodrugs thereof may exist in their tautomeric form (for example, as an amide or imino ether). All such tautomeric forms are contemplated herein as part of the present invention.

The compounds of the invention may contain asymmetric or chiral centers, and, therefore, exist in different stereoisomeric forms. It is intended that all stereoisomeric forms of the compounds of the various Formulas as well as mixtures thereof, including racemic mixtures, form part of the present invention. In addition, the present invention embraces all geometric and positional isomers. For example, if a compound of the various Formulas incorporates a double bond or a fused ring, both the cis- and trans-forms, as well as mixtures, are embraced within the scope of the invention.

Diastereomeric mixtures can be separated into their individual diastereomers on the basis of their physical chemical differences by methods well known to those skilled in the art, such as, for example, by chromatography and/or fractional crystallization. Enantiomers can be separated by converting the enantiomeric mixture into a diastereomeric mixture by reaction with an appropriate optically active compound (e.g., chiral auxiliary such as a chiral alcohol or Mosher's acid chloride), separating the diastereomers and converting (e.g., hydrolyzing) the individual diastereomers to the corresponding pure enantiomers. Also, some of the compounds of the various Formulas may be atropisomers (e.g., substituted biaryls) and are considered as part of this invention. Enantiomers can also be separated by use of chiral HPLC column.

It is also possible that the compounds of the various Formulas may exist in different tautomeric forms, and all such forms are embraced within the scope of the invention. Also, for example, all keto-enol and imine-enamine forms of the compounds are included in the invention.

All stereoisomers (for example, geometric isomers, optical isomers and the like) of the present compounds (including those of the salts, solvates, esters and prodrugs of the compounds as well as the salts, solvates and esters of the prodrugs), such as those which may exist due to asymmetric carbons on various substituents, including enantiomeric forms (which may exist even in the absence of asymmetric carbons), rotameric forms, atropisomers, and diastereomeric forms, are contemplated within the scope of this invention, as are positional isomers (such as, for example, 4- pyridyl and 3-pyridyl). (For example, if a compound of the various Formulas incorporates a double bond or a fused ring, both the cis- and trans-forms, as well as mixtures, are embraced within the scope of the invention. Also, for example, all keto- enol and imine-enamine forms of the compounds are included in the invention.) Individual stereoisomers of the compounds of the invention may, for example, be substantially free of other isomers, or may be admixed, for example, as racemates or with all other, or other selected, stereoisomers. The chiral centers of the present invention can have the S or R configuration as defined by the IUPAC 1974

Recommendations. The use of the terms "salt", "solvate", "ester", "prodrug" and the like, is intended to equally apply to the salt, solvate, ester and prodrug of enantiomers, stereoisomers, rotamers, tautomers, positional isomers, racemates or prodrugs of the inventive compounds.

The present invention also embraces isotopically-labelled compounds of the present invention which are identical to those recited herein, 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, phosphorus, fluorine and chlorine, such as H, 3 H, 13 C, 14 C, 15 N, 18 0, 17 0, 31 P, 32 P, 35 S, 18 F, and 36 C1, respectively.

Certain isotopically-labelled compounds of the various Formulas (e.g., those labeled with 3 H and 14 C) are useful in compound and/or substrate tissue distribution assays. Tritiated (i.e., 3 H) and carbon-14 (i.e., 14 C) isotopes are particularly preferred for their ease of preparation and detectability. Further, substitution with heavier isotopes such as deuterium (i.e., H) may afford certain therapeutic advantages resulting from greater metabolic stability (e.g., increased in vivo half-life or reduced dosage requirements) and hence may be preferred in some circumstances. Isotopically labelled compounds of the various Formulas can generally be prepared by following procedures analogous to those disclosed in the Schemes and/or in the Examples hereinbelow, by substituting an appropriate isotopically labelled reagent for a non- isotopically labelled reagent.

Polymorphic forms of the compounds of the invention, and of the salts, solvates, esters and prodrugs of the compounds of the invention, are intended to be included in the present invention.

ASSAY EXAMPLE 1 Biochemical Inhibition Assay

NAMPT protein purification

Recombinant His-tagged NAMPT was produced in E.coli cells, purified over a Ni column, and further purified over a size-exclusion column by XTAL Biostructures.

The NAMPT enzymatic reaction

The NAMPT enzymatic reactions were carried out in Buffer A (50mM Hepes pH 7.5, 50mM NaCl, 5mM MgCl 2 , and ImM THP) in 96-well V-bottom plates. The compound titrations were performed in a separate dilution plate by serially diluting the compounds in DMSO to make a 100X stock. Buffer A (89 μί) containing 33 nM of NAMPT protein was added to 1 of 100X compound plate containing controls (e.g. DMSO or blank). The compound and enzyme mix was incubated for 15 minutes at room temperature, then 10 of 10X substrate and co-factors in Buffer A were added to the test well to make a final concentration of 1 μΜ NAM, 100 μΜ 5- Phospho-D-ribose 1 -diphosphate (PRPP), and 2.5mM Adenosine 5 '-triphosphate (ATP). The reaction was allowed to proceed for 30 minutes at room temperature, then was quenched with the addition of 11 μί of a solution of formic acid and L- Cystathionine to make a final concentration of 1% formic acid and 10 μΜ L- Cystathionine . Background and signal strength was determined by addition (or non- addition) of a serial dilution of NMN to a pre-quenched enzyme and cofactor mix. Quantification of NMN

A mass spectrometry-based assay was used to measure the NAMPT reaction product (NMN) and the internal control (L-Cystathionine). NMN and L- Cystathionine were detected using the services of Biocius Lifesciences with the RapidFire system. In short, the NMN and L-Cystathionine are bound to a graphitic carbon cartridge in 0.1% formic acid, eluted in 30% acetonitrile buffer, and injected into a Sciex 4000 mass spectrometer. The components of the sample were ionized with electrospray ionization and the positive ions were detected. The Ql (parent ion) and Q3 (fragment ion) masses of NMN were 334.2 and 123.2, respectively. The Ql and Q3 for L-Cystathionine were 223.1 and 134.1, respectively. The fragments are quantified and the analyzed by the following method.

% inhibitions are determined using this method.

First the NMN signal is normalized to the L-Cystathionine signal by dividing the NMN signal by the L-Cystathionine signal for each well. The signal from the background wells are averaged and subtracted from the test plates. The compound treated cells re then assayed for % inhibition by using this formula.

% Inh = 100 - 100*x/y

wherein x denotes the average signal of the compound treated wells and y denotes the average signal of the DMSO treated wells.

IC50s are determined using Excel and this formula.

IC50 =10 A (LOG10(X)+(((50-% Inh at Cmpd Concentration 1)/(XX- YY)*(LOG10(X)-LOG10(Y))))

wherein X denotes the compound concentration 1 , Y denotes the compound concentration 2, XX denotes the % inhibition at compound concentration 1 (X), and YY denotes the % inhibition at compound concentration 2 (Y).

The NAMPT-inhibitor compounds of thi sinvetnion have IC50 values that are under 10 μΜ, preferably under ΙμΜ, more preferalb under 0.1 μΜ, and most preferably under 0.0 ΙμΜ. Results for representative compounds are provided in Table 3 below.

ASSAY EXAMPLE 2

In-Vitro Cell Proliferation Assay A2780 cells were seeded in 96-well plates at 1 x 10 cells/well in 180 μΙ_, of culture medium (10% FBS, 1% Pen/Strep Amphotecricin B, RPMI-1640) with and without the addition of either β-nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) or

nicotinamide (NAM). After overnight incubation at 37 °C and 5% C0 2 , the compound titrations were performed in a separate dilution plate by serially diluting the compounds in DMSO to make a 1000X stock. The compounds were then further diluted to 10X final concentration in culture media, whereupon 20 of each dilution was added to the plated cells with controls (e.g. DMSO and blank) to make a final volume of 200 μί. The final DMSO concentration in each well was 0.1%. The plates were then incubated for 72 hours at 37 °C in a 5% C0 2 incubator. The number of viable cells was then assessed using sulforhodamine B (SRB) assay. Cells were fixed at 4 °C for 1 hour with the addition of 50 μί 30% trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to make a final concentration of 6 % TCA. The plates were washed four times with H 2 0 and allowed to dry for at least 1 hour, whereupon 100 μΙ_, of a 4% SRB in 1% acetic acid solution was added to each well and incubated at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. The plates were then washed three times with 1% acetic acid, dried, and treated with 100 μί of lOmM Tris-Base solution. The plates were then read in a microplate reader at an absorbance of 570 nm. Background was generated on a separate plate with media only.

Method for determining % inhibition

First, the signals from the background plate are averaged, then the background was subtracted from the test plates. The compound-treated cells were then assayed for % inhibition by using the following formula:

% Inh = 100 - 100*x/y

wherein x denotes the average signal of the compound-treated cells and y denotes the average signal of the DMSO-treated cells.

Formula for determining IC 50 values:

IC50 =10 A (LOG10(X)+(((50-% Inh at Cmpd Concentration 1)/(XX-

CB-n-Igh-lb-Prkdc scid mice (female) were injected s.c. with 5X10 6 A2780 cells (NCI) in the left flank. 10-12 days later when tumors reached 100-200 mm3 in size, mice were randomized into treatment groups of 8 mice per group including vehicle control and reference standard groups. The compounds were formulated in 60:30: 10 PEG-400:D5W: Ethanol and administered p.o., at the dose volume of lOml/kg BID for a duration of 5 or 10 days. The dose used for efficacy was selected from the MTD (Maximum Tolerated Dose) study. Mice were weighed and tumors measured using vernier calipers every alternate day. Tumor volume was calculated according to the formula (length x width )/2. All animal work was approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee of Biological Resource Centre, Singapore.

Results:

The following compound produced tumor regression.
