Description:
SOLID STATE FORMS OF ELTROMBOPAG CHOLINE

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The present disclosure relates to solid state forms of Eltrombopag choline, processes for preparation thereof and pharmaceutical compositions thereof.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0002] Eltrombopag has the chemical name 3 '-[(2Z)-[l -(3,4-dimethylphenyl)-l,5- dihydro-3-methyl-5-oxo-4H-pyrazol-4-ylidene]hydrazino]-2' -hydroxy-[ 1 , 1 ' -biphenyl] -3 - carboxylic acid.

[0003] Eltrombopag has the following chemical structure:

[0004] Eltrombopag is a small-molecule, non-peptide thrombopoitin (TPO) receptor agonist that has been shown in pre-clinical research and clinical trials to stimulate the proliferation and differentiation of megakaryocytes, the bone marrow cells that give rise to blood platelets.

[0005] Eltrombopag bisethanolamine is the active ingredient of the marketed drug PROMACTA ® (US) or REVOLADE ® (EU) for the treatment of Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, Thrombocytopenia and Aplastic anemia.

[0006] Eltrombopag is disclosed in US7160870. Eltrombopag bisethanolamine salt is disclosed in US 7547719. Eltrombopag tromethamine salt is disclosed in WO20170042839.

[0007] Polymorphism, the occurrence of different crystal forms, is a property of some molecules and molecular complexes. A single compound, like Eltrombopag choline, may give rise to a variety of polymorphs having distinct crystal structures and physical properties like melting point, thermal behaviors (e.g. measured by thermogravimetric analysis - "TGA", or differential scanning calorimetry - "DSC"), X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) pattern, infrared absorption fingerprint, Raman absorption fingerprint, and solid state ( 1 C-) NMR spectrum. One or more of these techniques may be used to distinguish different polymorphic forms of a compound.

[0008] Different salts and solid state forms (including solvated forms) of an active pharmaceutical ingredient may possess different properties. Such variations in the properties of different salts and solid state forms and solvates may provide a basis for improving formulation, for example, by facilitating better processing or handling characteristics, improving the dissolution profile, or improving stability (polymorph as well as chemical stability) and shelf-life. These variations in the properties of different salts and solid state forms may also provide improvements to the final dosage form, for instance, if they serve to improve bioavailability. Different salts and solid state forms and solvates of an active pharmaceutical ingredient may also give rise to a variety of polymorphs or crystalline forms, which may in turn provide additional opportunities to use variations in the properties and characteristics of a solid active pharmaceutical ingredient for providing an improved product.

[0009] Discovering new salts, solid state forms and solvates of a pharmaceutical product can provide materials having desirable processing properties, such as ease of handling, ease of processing, storage stability, and ease of purification or as desirable intermediate crystal forms that facilitate conversion to other salts or polymorphic forms. New salts, polymorphic forms and solvates of a pharmaceutically useful compound can also provide an opportunity to improve the performance characteristics of a pharmaceutical product (dissolution profile, bioavailability, etc.). It enlarges the repertoire of materials that a formulation scientist has available for formulation optimization, for example by providing a product with different properties, e.g., a different crystal habit, higher crystallinity or polymorphic stability which may offer better processing or handling characteristics, improved dissolution profile, or improved shelf-life.

[0010] For at least these reasons, there is a need for additional solid state forms (including solvated forms) of Eltrombopag choline.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0011] The present disclosure relates to solid state forms of Eltrombopag choline, processes for preparation thereof, and pharmaceutical compositions comprising these solid state forms.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0029] The present disclosure relates to a solid state form of Eltrombopag choline, processes for preparation thereof and pharmaceutical compositions comprising this solid state form. The disclosure also relates to the conversion of the described solid state form of Eltrombopag choline to other solid state forms of Eltrombopag, Eltrombopag salts and their solid state forms.

[0030] The solid state form of Eltrombopag choline according to the present disclosure may have advantageous properties selected from at least one of: chemical or polymorphic purity, flowability, solubility, dissolution rate, bioavailability, morphology or crystal habit, stability - such as chemical stability as well as thermal and mechanical stability with respect to polymorphic conversion, stability towards dehydration and/or storage stability, a lower degree of hygroscopicity, low content of residual solvents and advantageous processing and handling characteristics such as compressibility, or bulk density.

[0031] A crystal form may be referred to herein as being characterized by graphical data "as depicted in" a Figure. Such data include, for example, powder X-ray diffractograms and solid state NMR spectra. As is well-known in the art, the graphical data potentially provides additional technical information to further define the respective solid state form (a so-called "fingerprint") which can not necessarily be described by reference to numerical values or peak positions alone. In any event, the skilled person will understand that such graphical representations of data may be subj ect to small variations, e.g., in peak relative intensities and peak positions due to factors such as variations in instrument response and variations in sample concentration and purity, which are well known to the skilled person. Nonetheless, the skilled person would readily be capable of comparing the graphical data in the Figures herein with graphical data generated for an unknown crystal form and confirm whether the two sets of graphical data are characterizing the same crystal form or two different crystal forms. A crystal form of Eltrombopag choline referred to herein as being characterized by graphical data "as depicted in" a Figure will thus be understood to include any crystal forms of the Eltrombopag choline, characterized with the graphical data having such small variations, as are well known to the skilled person, in comparison with the Figure.

[0032] A solid state form (or polymorph) may be referred to herein as

polymorphically pure or as substantially free of any other solid state (or polymorphic) forms. As used herein in this context, the expression "substantially free of any other forms" will be understood to mean that the solid state form contains about 20% or less, about 10% or less, about 5% or less, about 2% or less, about 1% or less, or 0% of any other forms of the subject compound as measured, for example, by XRPD. Thus, the solid state form of Eltrombopag choline described herein as substantially free of any other solid state forms would be understood to contain greater than about 80% (w/w), greater than about 90% (w/w), greater than about 95% (w/w), greater than about 98% (w/w), greater than about 99% (w/w), or al00% of the subject solid state form of Eltrombopag choline. Accordingly, in some embodiments of the disclosure, the described solid state forms of Eltrombopag choline may contain from about 1% to about 20% (w/w), from about 5% to about 20% (w/w), or from about 5% to about 10% (w/w) of one or more other solid state forms of the same

Eltrombopag choline. [0033] As used herein, unless stated otherwise, XRPD peaks reported herein are optionally measured using CuK α radiation, λ = 1.5418 A.

[0034] As used herein, the term "isolated" in reference to solid state forms of Eltrombopag choline of the present disclosure corresponds to solid state form of Eltrombopag choline that is physically separated from the reaction mixture in which it is formed.

[0035] A thing, e.g., a reaction mixture, may be characterized herein as being at, or allowed to come to "room temperature", often abbreviated "RT." This means that the temperature of the thing is close to, or the same as, that of the space, e.g., the room or fume hood, in which the thing is located. Typically, room temperature is from about 20°C to about 30°C, about 22°C to about 27°C, or about 25°C.

[0036] A process or step may be referred to herein as being carried out "overnight. " This refers to a time interval, e.g., for the process or step, that spans the time during the night, when that process or step may not be actively observed. This time interval is from about 8 to about 20 hours, about 10 to about 18 hours, or about 16 hours.

[0037] As used herein, the expression "wet crystalline form" refers to a polymorph that was not dried using any conventional techniques to remove residual solvent. Examples for such conventional techniques can be, but not limited to, evaporation, vacuum drying, oven drying, drying under nitrogen flow, etc.

[0038] As used herein, the expression "dry crystalline form" refers to a polymorph that was dried using any conventional techniques to remove residual solvent. Examples of such conventional techniques can be, but are not limited to, evaporation, vacuum drying, oven drying, drying under nitrogen flow, etc.

[0039] As used herein, and unless stated otherwise, the term "anhydrous" in relation to crystalline Eltrombopag choline relates to crystalline Eltrombopag choline which does not include any crystalline water (or other solvents) in a defined, stoichiometric amount within the crystal. Moreover, an "anhydrous" form does not contain more than about 1% (w/w) of either water or organic solvents as measured for example by TGA.

[0040] The term "solvate", as used herein and unless indicated otherwise, refers to a crystal form that incorporates a solvent in the crystal structure. When the solvent is water, the solvate is often referred to as a "hydrate." The solvent in a solvate may be present in either a stoichiometric or in a non-stoichiometric amount.

[0041] As used herein, the term "reduced pressure" refers to a pressure of about 10 mbar to about 500 mbar. [0042] The present disclosure comprises a crystalline form of Eltrombopag choline designated as Form A.
