Description



FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The present invention relates to a novel class of compounds, their use as antibacterials, compositions comprising them and processes for their manufacture.

BACKGROUND

[0002] Type II topoisomerases catalyse the interconversion of DNA topoisomers by transporting one DNA segment through another. Bacteria encode two type II topoisomerase enzymes, DNA gyrase and DNA topoisomerase IV. Gyrase controls DNA supercoiling and relieves topological stress. Topoisomerase IV decatenates daughter chromosomes following replication and can also relax supercoiled DNA. Bacterial type II topoisomerases form a heterotetrameric complex composed of two subunits. Gyrase forms an A.sub.2B.sub.2 complex comprised of GyrA and GyrB whereas topoisomerase forms a C.sub.2E.sub.2 complex comprised of ParC and ParE. In contrast eukaryotic type II topoisomerases are homodimers. Ideally, an antibiotic based on the inhibition of bacterial type II topoisomerases would be selective for the bacterial enzymes and be relatively inactive against the eukaryotic type II isomerases.

[0003] The type II topoisomerases are highly conserved enzymes allowing the design of broad-spectrum inhibitors. Furthermore, the GyrB and ParE subunits are functionally similar, having an ATPase domain in the N-terminal domain and a C-terminal domain that interacts with the other subunit (GyrA and ParC respectively) and the DNA. The conservation between the gyrase and topoisomerase IV active sites suggests that inhibitors of the sites might simultaneously target both type II topoisomerases. Such dual-targeting inhibitors are attractive because they have the potential to reduce the development of target-based resistance.

[0004] Type II topoisomerases are the target of a number of antibacterial agents. The most prominent of these agents are the quinolones. The original quinolone antibiotics included nalidixic acid, cinoxacin and oxolinic acid. The addition of fluorine yielded a new class of drugs, the fluoroquinolones, which have a broader antimicrobial spectrum and improved pharmacokinetic properties. The fluoroquinolones include norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and fourth generation quinolones gatifloxacin and moxifloxacin. The coumarins and the cyclothialidines are further classes of antibiotics that inhibit type II topoisomerases, however they are not widely used because of poor permeability in bacteria, eukaryotic toxicity, and low water solubility. Examples of such antibiotics include novobiocin and coumermycin A1, cyclothialidine, cinodine, and clerocidin.

[0005] Linezolid is currently the standard treatment for acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) caused by Gram-positive bacteria. It belongs to the class of oxazolidinones and is a protein synthesis inhibitor.

[0006] However, the continual emergence of antibiotic resistance demands that novel classes of antibiotics continue to be developed and alternative compounds that inhibit bacterial topoisomerases are required.

[0007] WO2007/148093, WO2009/074812, WO2009/074810 and WO2012/045124 describe the applicant's earlier compounds that inhibit bacterial gyrase activity. The applicant has now discovered a class of related compounds that includes a carbocyclic or heterocyclic ring comprising a branched i.e. secondary or tertiary alcohol substituent and prodrugs thereof which appears to confer advantage(s) to the compounds. One or more advantage(s) include desirable pharmacokinetic properties, prodrugability, solubility and introduced chirality to provide a further subclass of active enantiomers.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0022] The present invention is predicated on the discovery of a new class of compounds that have shown on-target gyrase enzyme activity. Accordingly, in one embodiment the compounds of Formula (I) are useful in modulating the activity of gyrase, more particularly as gyrase inhibitors.

[0023] Compounds of this class also exhibit antibacterial activity, more particularly antibacterial activity against strains of Gram-positive and/or Gram-negative classes, such as staphylococci, enterococci, streptococci and haemophili for example Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophila, Moraxella catarrhalis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The compounds with which the invention is concerned are therefore useful for the treatment of bacterial infection or contamination, for example in the treatment of, inter alia, Gram-positive infections, Gram-negative infections and community acquired bacterial pneumonias (CABPs), hospital acquired bacterial pneumonias (HABPs) and ventilator acquired bacterial pneuomias (VABPs). Accordingly, in one embodiment the compounds of Formula (I) are useful in the treatment of bacterial infections caused by Gram positive bacterial strains. In another embodiment, the compounds of Formula (I) are useful in the treatment of bacterial infections caused by Gram negative bacterial strains. The sites of bacterial infections are many and include respiratory infections, particularly lung infections, skin and skin structure infections, urinary tract infections, intra-abdominal infections and blood stream (septicaemia) infections.

[0024] The development of antibacterial resistance is particularly common in a hospital setting. Hospital patients are therefore especially at risk of infection by resistant strains of bacteria.

[0070] In this context, the prefixes 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-, 8-, 9- and 10-membered denote the number of ring atoms, or range of ring atoms, whether carbon atoms or heteroatoms.

[0071] For example, the term "3-10 membered heterocyclyl", as used herein, pertains to a heterocyclyl group having 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 ring atoms or a range comprising any of two of those integers. Examples of heterocyclyl groups include 5-6-membered monocyclic heterocyclyls and 9-10 membered fused bicyclic heterocyclyls.

[0072] Examples of monocyclic heterocyclyl groups include, but are not limited to, those containing one nitrogen atom such as aziridine (3-membered ring), azetidine (4-membered ring), pyrrolidine (tetrahydropyrrole), pyrroline (e.g., 3-pyrroline, 2,5-dihydropyrrole), 2H-pyrrole or 3H-pyrrole (isopyrrole, isoazole) or pyrrolidinone (5-membered rings), piperidine, dihydropyridine, tetrahydropyridine (6-membered rings), and azepine (7-membered ring); those containing two nitrogen atoms such as imidazoline, pyrazolidine (diazolidine), imidazoline, pyrazoline (dihydropyrazole) (5-membered rings), piperazine (6-membered ring); those containing one oxygen atom such as oxirane (3-membered ring), oxetane (4-membered ring), oxolane (tetrahydrofuran), oxole (dihydrofuran) (5-membered rings), oxane (tetrahydropyran), dihydropyran, pyran (6-membered rings), oxepin (7-membered ring); those containing two oxygen atoms such as dioxolane (5-membered ring), dioxane (6-membered ring), and dioxepane (7-membered ring); those containing three oxygen atoms such as trioxane (6-membered ring); those containing one sulfur atom such as thiirane (3-membered ring), thietane (4-membered ring), thiolane (tetrahydrothiophene) (5-membered ring), thiane (tetrahydrothiopyran) (6-membered ring), thiepane (7-membered ring); those containing one nitrogen and one oxygen atom such as tetrahydrooxazole, dihydrooxazole, tetrahydroisoxazole, dihydroisoxazole (5-membered rings), morpholine, tetrahydrooxazine, dihydrooxazine, oxazine (6-membered rings); those containing one nitrogen and one sulfur atom such as thiazoline, thiazolidine (5-membered rings), thiomorpholine (6-membered ring); those containing two nitrogen and one oxygen atom such as oxadiazine (6-membered ring); those containing one oxygen and one sulfur such as: oxathiole (5-membered ring) and oxathiane (thioxane) (6-membered ring); and those containing one nitrogen, one oxygen and one sulfur atom such as oxathiazine (6-membered ring).

[0073] Heterocyclyls also encompass aromatic heterocyclyls and non-aromatic heterocyclyls.

[0074] Such groups may be substituted or unsubstituted.

[0075] The term "aromatic heterocyclyl" may be used interchangeably with the term "heteroaromatic" or the term "heteroaryl" or "hetaryl". The heteroatoms in the aromatic heterocyclyl group may be independently selected from N, S and O. "Heteroaryl" is used herein to denote a heterocyclic group having aromatic character and embraces aromatic monocyclic ring systems and polycyclic (e.g. bicyclic) ring systems containing one or more aromatic rings. The term aromatic heterocyclyl also encompasses pseudoaromatic heterocyclyls. The term "pseudoaromatic" refers to a ring system which is not strictly aromatic, but which is stabilized by means of delocalization of electrons and behaves in a similar manner to aromatic rings. The term aromatic heterocyclyl therefore covers polycyclic ring systems in which all of the fused rings are aromatic as well as ring systems where one or more rings are non-aromatic, provided that at least one ring is aromatic. In polycyclic systems containing both aromatic and non-aromatic rings fused together, the group may be attached to another moiety by the aromatic ring or by a non-aromatic ring.

[0076] Examples of heteroaryl groups are monocyclic and bicyclic groups containing from five to ten ring members. The heteroaryl group can be, for example, a five membered or six membered monocyclic ring or a bicyclic structure formed from fused five and six membered rings or two fused six membered rings or two fused five membered rings. Each ring may contain up to about four heteroatoms typically selected from nitrogen, sulfur and oxygen. The heteroaryl ring will contain up to 4 heteroatoms, more typically up to 3 heteroatoms, more usually up to 2, for example a single heteroatom. In one embodiment, the heteroaryl ring contains at least one ring nitrogen atom. The nitrogen atoms in the heteroaryl rings can be basic, as in the case of an imidazole or pyridine, or essentially non-basic as in the case of an indole or pyrrole nitrogen. In general the number of basic nitrogen atoms present in the heteroaryl group, including any amino group substituents of the ring, will be less than five. Aromatic heterocyclyl groups may be 5-membered or 6-membered mono-cyclic aromatic ring systems.

[0077] Examples of 5-membered monocyclic heteroaryl groups include but are not limited to furanyl, thienyl, pyrrolyl, oxazolyl, oxadiazolyl (including 1,2,3 and 1,2,4 oxadiazolyls and furazanyl i.e. 1,2,5-oxadiazolyl), thiazolyl, isoxazolyl, isothiazolyl, pyrazolyl, imidazolyl, triazolyl (including 1,2,3, 1,2,4 and 1,3,4 triazolyls), oxatriazolyl, tetrazolyl, thiadiazolyl (including 1,2,3 and 1,3,4 thiadiazolyls) and the like.

[0078] Examples of 6-membered monocyclic heteroaryl groups include but are not limited to pyridinyl, pyrimidinyl, pyridazinyl, pyrazinyl, triazinyl, pyranyl, oxazinyl, dioxinyl, thiazinyl, thiadiazinyl and the like. Examples of 6-membered heteroaryl groups containing nitrogen include pyridyl (1 nitrogen), pyrazinyl, pyrimidinyl and pyridazinyl (2 nitrogens). It will be understood that, such as in the case of pyridyl when substituted with an oxo (.dbd.O) substituted the group may be interchangeably referred to as a pyridinone group.

[0079] Aromatic heterocyclyl groups may also be bicyclic or polycyclic heteroaromatic ring systems such as fused ring systems (including purine, pteridinyl, napthyridinyl, 1H thieno[2,3-c]pyrazolyl, thieno[2,3-b]furyl and the like) or linked ring systems (such as oligothiophene, polypyrrole and the like). Fused ring systems may also include aromatic 5-membered or 6-membered heterocyclyls fused to carbocyclic aromatic rings such as phenyl, naphthyl, indenyl, azulenyl, fluorenyl, anthracenyl and the like, such as 5- or 6-membered aromatic heterocyclyls fused to a phenyl ring including 5-membered aromatic heterocyclyls containing nitrogen fused to a phenyl ring, 5-membered aromatic heterocyclyls containing 1 or 2 nitrogens fused to a phenyl ring and such as 5- or 6-membered aromatic heteroaryls fused to a 6-membered aromatic or non-aromatic heterocyclyls.

[0080] A bicyclic heteroaryl group may be, for example, a group selected from: a) a benzene ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1, 2 or 3 ring heteroatoms; b) a pyridine ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1, 2 or 3 ring heteroatoms; c) a pyrimidine ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1 or 2 ring heteroatoms; d) a pyrrole ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1, 2 or 3 ring heteroatoms; e) a pyrazole ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1 or 2 ring heteroatoms; f) an imidazole ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1 or 2 ring heteroatoms; g) an oxazole ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1 or 2 ring heteroatoms; h) an isoxazole ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1 or 2 ring heteroatoms; i) a thiazole ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1 or 2 ring heteroatoms; j) an isothiazole ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1 or 2 ring heteroatoms; k) a thiophene ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1, 2 or 3 ring heteroatoms; l) a furan ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1, 2 or 3 ring heteroatoms; m) a cyclohexyl ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1, 2 or 3 ring heteroatoms; and n) a cyclopentyl ring fused to a 5- or 6-membered ring containing 1, 2 or 3 ring heteroatoms.

In yet another further particular embodiment, phosphates, preferably phosphate prodrugs of these compounds and their salts, racemates, diasteromers, enantiomers and deuterated forms thereof are preferred.

[0348] Accordingly, in one embodiment the compound is an ester or phosphate selected from the group consisting of any one of compounds 18, 19, 20, 21, 62, 63, 123, 126, 129, 132, 133, 134, 136, 137, 140, 141, 144, 145, 146, 149, 152, 153, 160, 161, 165, 166, 167, 169, 170, 171, 172, 179, 180, 181, 184 and 190, their salts, racemates, diastereomers, enantiomers and deuterated forms thereof.

[0349] The salts of the compound of Formula (I) are preferably pharmaceutically acceptable, but it will be appreciated that non-pharmaceutically acceptable salts also fall within the scope of the present invention, since these are useful as intermediates in the preparation of pharmaceutically acceptable salts.

[0350] Suitable pharmaceutically acceptable salts include, but are not limited to, salts of pharmaceutically acceptable inorganic acids such as hydrochloric, sulfuric, phosphoric, nitric, carbonic, boric, sulfamic, and hydrobromic acids, or salts of pharmaceutically acceptable organic acids such as acetic, propionic, butyric, tartaric, maleic, malonic, hydroxymaleic, fumaric, malic, citric, lactic, mucic, gluconic, benzoic, succinic, oxalic, phenylacetic, methanesulphonic, toluenesulphonic, benzenesulphonic, ethane-1,2-disulfonic, salicylic, sulphanilic, aspartic, glutamic, gentisic, edetic, stearic, palmitic, pamoic, oleic, lauric, pantothenic, tannic, ascorbic and valeric acids.

[0351] Base salts include, but are not limited to, those formed with pharmaceutically acceptable cations, such as sodium, potassium, lithium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, ammonium, alkylammonium such as salts formed from triethylamine, alkoxyammonium such as those formed with ethanolamine and salts formed from ethylenediamine, choline or amino acids such as arginine, lysine or histidine. General information on types of pharmaceutically acceptable salts and their formation is known to those skilled in the art and is as described in general texts such as "Handbook of Pharmaceutical salts" P. H. Stahl, C. G. Wermuth, 1.sup.st edition, 2002, Wiley-VCH.

[0354] It will be recognised that the compounds of formula I may possess asymmetric centres and are therefore capable of existing in more than one stereoisomeric form. The invention thus also relates to compounds in substantially pure isomeric form at one or more asymmetric centres eg., greater than about 90% ee, such as about 95% or 97% ee or greater than 99% ee, as well as mixtures, including racemic mixtures, thereof.

[0355] Such isomers may be prepared by asymmetric synthesis, for example using chiral intermediates, or by chiral resolution.

[0356] This invention also encompasses prodrugs of compounds of Formula (I). Compounds of Formula (I) having free amino, amido, hydroxy or carboxylic groups can be converted into prodrugs.

[0357] Particularly preferred are prodrugs of hydroxyl groups such as carbamates, phosphates, sulfates and ester groups including those derived from amino acids and dipeptides and moieties designed to release the parent via hydrolysis or internal cyclisation of the prodrug moiety.

[0366] The present invention also provides compound of Formula (I) or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof for use in the treatment of a bacterial infection.

[0367] The term "effective amount" means the amount of the subject composition that will elicit the biological or medical response of a tissue, system, animal or human that is being sought by the researcher, veterinarian, medical doctor or other clinician.

[0368] The term "composition" as used herein is intended to encompass a product comprising the specified ingredients in the specified amounts, as well as any product which results, directly or indirectly, from combination of the specified ingredients in the specified amounts. By "pharmaceutically acceptable" it is meant the carrier, diluent or excipient must be compatible with the other ingredients of the formulation and not deleterious to the recipient thereof.

[0369] The terms "administration of" and or "administering a" compound should be understood to mean providing a compound of the invention to the individual in need of treatment.

[0370] The pharmaceutical compositions for the administration of the compounds of this invention may conveniently be presented in dosage unit form and may be prepared by any of the methods well known in the art of pharmacy. All methods include the step of bringing the active ingredient into association with the carrier which constitutes one or more accessory ingredients. In general, the pharmaceutical compositions are prepared by uniformly and intimately bringing the active ingredient into association with a liquid carrier or a finely divided solid carrier or both, and then, if necessary, shaping the product into the desired formulation. In the pharmaceutical composition the active object compound is included in an amount sufficient to produce the desired effect upon the process or condition of diseases. As used herein, the term "composition" is intended to encompass a product comprising the specified ingredients in the specified amounts, as well as any product which results, directly or indirectly, from combination of the specified ingredients in the specified amounts.

[0371] The pharmaceutical compositions may be in the form of a sterile injectable aqueous or oleagenous suspension. This suspension may be formulated according to the known art using those suitable dispersing or wetting agents and suspending agents which have been mentioned above. The sterile injectable preparation may also be a sterile injectable solution or suspension in a non-toxic parenterally-acceptable diluent or solvent, for example as a solution in 1,3-butane diol. Among the acceptable vehicles and solvents that may be employed are water, Ringer's solution and isotonic sodium chloride solution. In addition, sterile, fixed oils are conventionally employed as a solvent or suspending medium. For this purpose any bland fixed oil may be employed including synthetic mono- or diglycerides. In addition, fatty acids such as oleic acid find use in the preparation of injectables.

[0372] In the treatment or prevention of bacterial infections, an appropriate dosage level will generally be about 0.01 to 500 mg per kg patient body weight per day which can be administered in single or multiple doses. For oral administration, the compositions are preferably provided in the form of tablets containing 1.0 to 1000 milligrams of the active ingredient.

[0373] 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.

Salt Formation Method(s)

[0386] Salts of the compounds of the invention may be formed using conditions familiar to those in the art, for example, as follows.

General Salt Formation Conditions

[0387] The free base material is dissolved or suspended in an organic solvent, organic solvent mixture or organic solvent water mixture (for example; DCM, THF, THF/MeOH, EtOH) and a solution/suspension of the acid in the same organic solvent or organic solvent mixture in molar equivalents of 1 or greater than 1 is added. The acid may also be added neat. The salt product may precipitate at room temperature or alternatively the addition may be done at a higher temperature with subsequent cooling to enable precipitation of the salt product. An antisolvent (for example; hexanes, n-heptane, Isopropyl acetate) may be added after the addition of acid to enable precipitation of the salt product which is collected by vacuum filtration and washed with an appropriate organic solvent.

Example Hydrochloride Salts

[0388] Hydrochloride salts can be made, for example, by suspending the compound in a suitable solvent, such as acetonitrile, and adding aqueous 2M hydrochloric acid solution. Dilution of the mixture with water and then removal of the solvent gives the hydrochloride salt of the compound.

Example Methanesulphonic Acid Salts

[0389] Methanesulphonic acid salts can be made, for example, by suspending the compound in a suitable solvent, such as acetonitrile, and adding 1 equivalent of methanesulphonic acid in water. Removal of the solvent gives the methanesulphonic acid salt of the compound.

Chiral Separation Method(s) and Synthesis

[0390] Compounds of the invention may be separated into their diastereoisomers or enantiomers under chiral HPLC conditions familiar to those in the art. Alternatively, chiral precursor moieties may be resolved from their racemates via derivatization with a chiral auxiliary, such as a blocked amino acid, e.g, Boc-valine, separated by fractional crystallization of diastereomers from a suitable solvent, such as heptane, and reconstitution of the enantiomeric precursors through cleavage of the auxiliary, such as base-mediated cleavage on resin or in solution. Mitsonobu-type inversion of enantiomerically enriched mixtures of chiral alcohols can also be accomplished by coupling the alcohol with the chiral auxiliary, such as an amino acid, e.g. Boc-valine, in the presence of trialkylated phosphines, such as triphenylphosphine, and dialkylazodicarboxylates, and fractionally crystallizing the enriched diastereomeric mixture as above.

Protecting Groups

[0391] During the reactions a number of the moieties may need to be protected. Suitable protecting groups are well known in industry and have been described in many references such as Protecting Groups in Organic Synthesis, Greene T W, Wiley-Interscience, New York, 1981. It will be understood that in addition to protecting groups such as hydroxyl and amino groups during the course of reaction, the urea moiety may require protection under any of the reactions conditions described herein, for example, as a 5-methyl-1,3,5-triazinan-2-one.

ADME Assays

[0672] The following assay(s) may be used to assess the properties of a prodrug and the potential suitability of the prodrug to deliver a compound in vivo.

Chemical Stability Assay

[0673] Compounds may be tested for chemical stability across four pH values i.e. 2.1, 4.5, 7.4 and 9.1 and in water. Stress solutions are prepared with 10% acetonitrile and samples introduced from DMSO stocks (2 mM) to give a final concentration of 16 .mu.M. Test samples are analysed by HPLC using a C8 reverse phase column (Phenomenex Kinetex.TM. 2.6 .mu.m C8 100 .ANG. LC Column 50.times.3 mm or similar) with an elution gradient of 5-100% acetonitrile:water+0.1% formic acid. The assay is conducted over 24 hrs with 2-hourly injections. Data analysis is performed using peak areas at 254 nm and LCMS for mass determination.

[0674] In an alternative method, compounds are dissolved in DMSO are diluted to produce triplicate 10 .mu.M solutions in HEPES pH 7.4 containing 5% DMSO. The samples are incubated for 24 h at 37.degree. C. and analysed by LCMS following the addition of 2 volumes of methanol. The percentage of compound remaining is determined by comparing peak areas to a T0 sample.

[0675] The chemical stability of representative Compounds 19, 123, 133 and 134 were tested and determined to be chemically stable at pH 7.4 with .gtoreq.95% of the compound remaining at 24 hours.

Thermodynamic Solubility

[0676] In a 1.5 mL eppendorf tube, approximately 2 mg of compound is resuspended in a volume of HEPES buffer pH 7.4 to achieve a 5 mg/mL suspension. The tubes are placed on an orbital shaker at room temperature and following shaking for 24 hours the tubes are spun at 1400 rpm in a bench top centrifuge to pellet the undissolved compound. Duplicate 150 .mu.L aliquots of the supernatant are then transferred into two ultracentrifuge tubes and spun at 357440 g for 4 hours at 20.degree. C. 50 .mu.L of the supernatant from each tube is then diluted with 100 .mu.L of methanol and analysed by HPLC or LCMS to determine the concentration of compound in solution by comparing to a standard curve. The thermodynamic solubility of representative Compounds 19, 123, 134 and 153 were tested and determined to be highly soluble, at .gtoreq.2 mg/mL, at pH 7.4.

Microsomal Stability

[0677] In a 96 well polypropylene plate, 10 .mu.M compound is prepared in 100 mM KPO.sub.4 buffer pH 7.4, 5 mM MgCl.sub.2, 25 .mu.g/ml Alamethicin, 1 mg/ml (protein) liver microsomes (mouse) and a final DMSO concentration of 0.1% in 100 .mu.l in duplicate. The plate is pre-incubated at 37.degree. C. for 10 minutes after which reactions are initiated by the addition of NADPH and UDPGA to a final concentration of 1 mM and 5 mM respectively. Reactions are incubated at 37.degree. C. and terminated by the addition of 100 .mu.l DMSO at 0, 10, 30 and 60 minutes. Samples of 100 .mu.l are withdrawn and added to 50 .mu.l ice cold methanol and mixed on an orbital shaker for 10 minutes to precipitate the proteins. The samples are then centrifuged at 4000 rpm and 10.degree. C. for 30 minutes and supernatants are analysed by LCMS. The T1/2 and clearance are determined by linear regression from the peak areas. The microsomal stability of representative Compounds 19, 123, 133 and 134 were tested and determined to be unstable, in each case the major metabolite being the parent alcohol, with a half-life less than 20 mins.

Plasma Stability

[0678] Compounds dissolved in DMSO are diluted to produce duplicate 50 .mu.l aliquots of 10 .mu.M solutions in neat plasma containing 1% DMSO in 96 well polypropylene plates. Following incubation at 37.degree. C. for 5 hours, 100 .mu.l ice cold acetonitrile is added to the samples and mixed on an orbital shaker for 10 minutes to precipitate the proteins. The samples are then centrifuged at 4000 rpm and 10.degree. C. for 30 minutes and supernatants are analysed by LCMS. The recovery and percentage of compound remaining is determined by comparing peak areas to a DMSO stock and T0 sample respectively.

[0679] The in vitro and in vivo antiviral activity of the compounds of the invention may be determined using the following protocols.

On-Target Enzyme Assay: Determination of Gyrase ATPase Activity

[0680] Gyrase converts ATP into ADP and inorganic phosphate. The released phosphate can be detected by the addition of malachite green solution and measured by monitoring the increase in absorbance at 600 nm. The ATPase assay is carried out in a buffer containing 2 mU/.mu.L Gyrase enzyme (A.sub.2B.sub.2 complex from Staphylococcus aureus), 0.08 mg/mL double-stranded DNA, 8 mM HEPES.KOH pH 7.6, 100 mM K glutamate, 2 mM Mg acetate, 2 mM DTT, 0.01 mg/mL BSA, and 5% DMSO solution containing the inhibitor. Alternatively, the ATPase assay is carried out in a buffer containing 4.8 .mu.g/mL Gyrase enzyme (A.sub.2B.sub.2 complex from Escherichia coli), 0.08 .mu.g/mL ssDNA, 35 mM Tris pH 7.5, 24 mM KCl, 2 mM MgCl.sub.2, 6.5% Glycerol, 2 mM DTT, 1.8 mM Spermidine, 0.5 mg/mL BSA and 5% DMSO solution containing the inhibitor. The reaction is started by adding ATP to a final concentration of 1 mM and allowed to incubate at 30.degree. C. for 60 minutes. The reaction is stopped by adding 200 .mu.L of malachite green solution (0.034% malachite green, 10 mM ammonium molybdate, 1 M HCl, 3.4% ethanol, 0.01% tween 20). Colour is allowed to develop for 5 minutes and the absorbance at 600 nm is measured spectrophotometrically. The IC.sub.50 values are determined from the absorbance readings using no compound and no enzyme controls.

[0681] The compounds of the invention demonstrated on target enzyme activity with the majority of compounds tested showing Gyrase ATPase activity IC.sub.50 values less than 1 .mu.g/mL, with most of these being less than 0.1 .mu.g/mL.

Pharmacokinetic Assays: Determination of PK Profile

[0685] The pharmacokinetic profiles of compounds are determined by measuring the compound concentration in plasma by LC/MS/MS following a single intravenous or peroral administration of the compounds at a dose of 1 or 3 mg/kg individually or in a cassette of up to 5 compounds. The concentrations are described as the mean plasma concentrations at each time point from three animals. Intravenous dose formulation is administered as a single bolus dose through the tail vein. Oral dose formulation is administered to animals by an oral gavage needle. In both cases the dose volume is 5.0 mL/kg. Blood is collected from rats using a jugular vein catheter and from anesthetized mice through a capillary guided into the retro-orbital plexus. The collected blood is then centrifuged to obtain plasma and the compounds extracted into methanol prior to determining the compound concentration by LC/MS/MS.

[0686] The pharmacokinetic profiles of selected compounds of the invention were compared directly with their primary alcohol analogues, Compounds A and B below, in the rat assay (IV).

Animal Models of Infection

[0692] Suitable models of infection will be familiar to those skilled in the art and include the following suitable for intravenous (IV) or oral (PO) dosing.

Thigh Infection Model(s)

[0693] Mouse:

[0694] The thighs of female CD-1 mice (18-22 g), rendered neutropenic by the intraperitoneal administration of cyclophosphamide (150 mg/kg at day -4 and 100 mg/kg at day -1), were inoculated with approximately 2.times.10.sup.5 cfus of S. aureus Smith prepared from a fresh overnight culture. Compounds were administered as indicated 2 hours later and the cfus enumerated at various times post dosing by harvesting the thighs, homogenising in saline on ice and plating serial dilutions onto charcoal containing plates for growth overnight and colony counting. For example, when dosed IV at 30 mg/kg Compounds 1 and 17 demonstrated a .gtoreq.3 log drop in colony forming units compared to the control. Similarly, when dosed PO at 100 mg/kg Compound 1 demonstrated a .gtoreq.3 log drop in colony forming units compared to the control.

[0695] Rat:

[0696] The thighs of Sprague-Dawley rats (250-275 g), rendered neutropenic by the intraperitoneal administration of cyclophosphamide (75 mg/kg on days -4 and -1), were inoculated with approximately 1.times.10.sup.7 cfus of S. aureus ATCC29213.

[0697] Compounds were administered as indicated 2 hours later and the cfus enumerated at various times post dosing by harvesting the thighs, homogenising in PBS on ice and plating serial dilutions onto CLED agar plates for growth at 37.degree. C. and colony counting. For example, when dosed IV at .ltoreq.40 mg/kg Compound 1 demonstrated a .gtoreq.3 log drop in colony forming units compared to the control.

Lung Infection Model(s)

[0698] Mouse (Gram Positive):

[0699] Anaesthetised female CD-1 mice (18-22 g) were inoculated intranasally with approximately 10.sup.6 cfus of S. pneumoniae ATCC6301 prepared from a fresh overnight culture by placing 50 .mu.l of inoculum on the nares and allowing the mice to inhale. Compounds were administered as indicated at 24 hours post inoculation and the cfus enumerated at 48 hours post inoculation by harvesting the lungs, homogenising in PBS on ice and plating serial dilutions onto TSA+5% blood plates for growth overnight at 37.degree. C. and colony counting. For example, when dosed IV at 30 mg/kg Compound 1 demonstrated a .gtoreq.3 log drop in colony forming units compared to the control.

[0700] Rat (Gram Negative):

[0701] Anaesthetised Sprague-Dawley rats (180-200 g), rendered neutropenic by the intraperitoneal administration of cyclophosphamide, were inoculated intratracheally with approximately 5.times.10.sup.7 cfus of H. influenzae prepared from a fresh culture by delivering 0.5 ml of inoculum in molten agar. Compounds were administered as indicated at 5 hours post inoculation followed by additional daily treatments and the cfus enumerated at 96 hours post inoculation by harvesting the lungs, homogenising in PBS on ice and plating serial dilutions onto bacterial growth medium for cfu determination.

[0702] Mouse Survival Model:

[0703] Anaesthetised female CD-1 mice (18-22 g) were inoculated intranasally with approximately 10.sup.6 cfus of S. pneumoniae ATCC6301 prepared from a fresh overnight culture by placing 50 .mu.l of inoculum on the nares and allowing the mice to inhale. Compounds are administered as indicated at 24, 48 and 72 hours post inoculation and the mice monitored for survival for seven or nine days after infection. For example, Compound 1 was dosed IV at 10 mg/kg and the results are shown in FIG. 2. Compound 1 demonstrated improved efficacy with 80% of mice surviving at seven or nine days. In comparison, mice dosed with 10 mg/kg Linezolid were dead by day six. Similarly, when Compound 17 was dosed IV at 30 mg/kg 90% of mice survived at day seven.

Skin Infection Model(s)

[0704] Mouse:

[0705] An area of the skin was stripped from the back dorsal surface of anaesthetised female CD-1 mice (18-22 g) by abrading with a fine emery board following removal of the fur by shaving. An infection was initiated by placing 5 .mu.l of inoculum, containing approximately 10.sup.7 cfus of S. aureus Smith prepared from a fresh overnight culture, onto the damaged skin. Compounds were administered as indicated at 4, 20, 28, 44, 52, 68 and 76 hours post inoculation and the cfus enumerated after 5 days post inoculation by harvesting the wounds, homogenising in PBS on ice and plating serial dilutions onto charcoal containing plates for growth overnight and colony counting.

Septicaemia Infection Model(s)

[0706] Mouse:

[0707] Female CD-1 mice (18-22 g) were inoculated intraperitoneally with approximately 5.times.10.sup.5 cfus of S. aureus Smith prepared from a fresh overnight culture suspended in 5% hog gastric mucin. Compounds were administered as indicated at 2 hours post inoculation and the mice monitored for survival for five days after infection.
