Description



[0001] The present application relates to novel substituted uracil derivatives, to processes for their preparation, to their use alone or in combinations for the treatment and/or prophylaxis of diseases, and to their use for preparing medicaments for the treatment and/or prophylaxis of diseases.

[0002] Chymase is a chymotrypsin-like serine protease which is stored as a macromolecular complex with heparin proteoglycans in secretory vesicles of mast cells. After activation of the mast cells, chymase is released into the extracellular matrix and activated.

[0003] Activated mast cells play an important role in healing wounds and in inflammation processes, for example fibrosis of wounds, angiogenesis and cardiac remodelling (Miyazaki et al., Pharmacol. Ther. 112 (2006), 668-676; Shiota et al., J. Hypertens. 21 (2003), 1823-1825). An increase in the number of mast cells has been observed in the event of heart failure, myocardial infarction and ischaemia, in human atherosclerotic plaques and in abdominal aortic aneurysms (Kovanen et al., Circulation 92 (1995), 1084-1088; Libby and Shi, Circulation 115 (2007), 2555-2558; Bacani and Frishman, Cardiol. Rev. 14(4) (2006), 187-193). Chymase-positive mast cells can also play an important role in the vascular remodelling of the respiratory pathways in the event of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. An increased number of mast cells has been found in endobronchial biopsies of asthma patients (Zanini et al., J. Allergy Clin. Immunol. 120 (2007), 329-333). Moreover, chymase is suspected of being partly responsible for the genesis of many renal disorders, such as diabetic nephropathy and polycystic kidney disease (Huang et al., J. Am. Soc. Nephrol. 14(7) (2003), 1738-1747; McPherson et al., J. Am. Soc. Nephrol. 15(2) (2004), 493-500).

[0004] Chymase is predominantly involved in the production of angiotensin II in the heart, in the artery wall and in the lung, whereas the angiotensin-converting enzyme is responsible for the formation of the peptide in the circulation system (Fleming I., Circ. Res. 98 (2006), 887-896). In addition, chymase cleaves a number of other substrates of pathological significance. Chymase leads to degradation of extracellular matrix proteins, such as fibronectin, procollagen and vitronectin, and to the breakoff of focal adhesions. It brings about activation and release of TGF.beta. from its latent form, which plays an important role in the genesis of cardiac hypertrophy and cardiac fibrosis. The enzyme has atherogenic action, by degrading apolipoproteins and preventing the absorption of cholesterol by HDL. The action of chymase leads to release and activation of the cytokine interleukin 1 with its pro-inflammatory properties. Furthermore, it contributes to production of endothelin 1 (Bacani and Frishman, Cardiol. Rev. 14(4) (2006), 187-193). An accumulation of chymase-positive mast cells has been found in biopsies of patients having atopic dermatitis, Crohn's disease, chronic hepatitis and hepatic cirrhosis, and also idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (Dogrell S. A., Expert Opin. Ther. Patents 18 (2008), 485-499).

[0005] The possibility of using chymase inhibitors for the treatment of different diseases has been demonstrated in numerous studies involving animal experimentation. Inhibition of chymase can be useful for the treatment of myocardial infarction. Jin et al. (Pharmacol. Exp. Ther. 309 (2004), 409-417) showed that a ligature of the coronary artery in dogs led to ventricular arrhythmias and elevated production of angiotensin II and chymase activity in the heart. Intravenous administration of the chymase inhibitor TY-501076 reduced chymase activity and the angiotensin II concentration in the plasma, and suppressed the occurrence of arrhythmias. A positive effect of chymase inhibition was shown in an in vivo model for myocardial infarction in hamsters. Treatment of the animals with the chymase inhibitor BCEAB reduced chymase activity, improved haemodynamics and reduced mortality (Jin et al., Life Sci. 71 (2002), 437-446). In the cardiomyopathic Syrian hamster, where the number of mast cells in the heart is elevated, oral treatment of the animals with the chymase inhibitor reduced cardiac fibrosis by 50% (Takai et al., Jpn. J. Pharmacol. 86 (2001), 124-126). In a tachycardia-induced heart failure model in dogs, chymase inhibition with SUN-C82257 led to reduction in the number of mast cells and in fibrosis in the heart. In addition, the diastolic function of the heart was improved after the treatment (Matsumoto et al., Circulation 107 (2003), 2555-2558).

[0006] Inhibition of chymase thus constitutes an effective principle in the treatment of cardiovascular disorders, inflammation and allergic disorders, and various fibrotic disorders.

[0007] WO 2007/150011 and WO 2009/049112 disclose a process for preparing pyrimidinetriones with glycine substituents. WO 2008/056257 describes triazinediones as GABA-B receptor modulators for treatment of CNS disorders. WO 2008/103277 discloses various nitrogen heterocycles for treatment of cancer. WO 2009/156182 describes uracil derivatives for suppression or reduction of resistance development in the course of cytostatic treatment. JP10195063 describes uracil derivatives as leukotriene antagonists, WO 2013/074633 uracil derivatives as inhibitors of the tyrosine kinases AXL and c-MET.

[0008] It was an object of the present invention to provide novel substances which act as inhibitors of chymase and are suitable as such for treatment and/or prophylaxis of disorders, especially cardiovascular disorders.

[0546] The present invention further provides medicaments which comprise at least one compound of the invention, typically together with one or more inert, nontoxic, pharmaceutically suitable excipients, and for the use thereof for the aforementioned purposes.

[0547] The compounds of the invention can act systemically and/or locally. For this purpose, they can be administered in a suitable manner, for example by the oral, parenteral, pulmonal, nasal, sublingual, lingual, buccal, rectal, dermal, transdermal, conjunctival or otic route, or as an implant or stent.

[0548] The compounds of the invention can be administered in administration forms suitable for these administration routes.

[0549] Suitable administration forms for oral administration are those which work according to the prior art and release the compounds of the invention rapidly and/or in a modified manner and which contain the compounds of the invention in crystalline and/or amorphized and/or dissolved form, for example tablets (uncoated or coated tablets, for example with gastric juice-resistant or retarded-dissolution or insoluble coatings which control the release of the compound of the invention), tablets or films/oblates which disintegrate rapidly in the oral cavity, films/lyophilizates, capsules (for example hard or soft gelatin capsules), sugar-coated tablets, granules, pellets, powders, emulsions, suspensions, aerosols or solutions.

[0550] Parenteral administration can bypass an absorption step (e.g. intravenously, intraarterially, intracardially, intraspinally or intralumbally) or include an absorption (e.g. inhalatively, intramuscularly, subcutaneously, intracutaneously, percutaneously or intraperitoneally). Administration forms suitable for parenteral administration include preparations for injection and infusion in the form of solutions, suspensions, emulsions, lyophilizates or sterile powders.

[0551] For the other administration routes, suitable examples are inhalation medicaments (including powder inhalers, nebulizers, aerosols), nasal drops, solutions or sprays; tablets for lingual, sublingual or buccal administration, films/oblates or capsules, suppositories, ear or eye preparations, vaginal capsules, aqueous suspensions (lotions, shaking mixtures), lipophilic suspensions, ointments, creams, transdermal therapeutic systems (e.g. patches), milk, pastes, foams, dusting powders, implants or stents.

[0552] Oral and parenteral administration are preferred, especially oral, intravenous and inhalative administration.

[0553] The compounds of the invention can be converted to the administration forms mentioned. This can be done in a manner known per se, by mixing with inert, nontoxic, pharmaceutically suitable excipients. These excipients include carriers (for example microcrystalline cellulose, lactose, mannitol), solvents (e.g. liquid polyethylene glycols), emulsifiers and dispersing or wetting agents (for example sodium dodecylsulfate, polyoxysorbitan oleate), binders (for example polyvinylpyrrolidone), synthetic and natural polymers (for example albumin), stabilizers (e.g. antioxidants, for example ascorbic acid), colorants (e.g. inorganic pigments, for example iron oxides) and flavour and/or odour correctants.

[0554] In general, it has been found to be advantageous in the case of parenteral administration to administer amounts of about 0.001 to 1 mg/kg, preferably about 0.01 to 0.5 mg/kg, of body weight to achieve effective results. In the case of oral administration the dosage is about 0.01 to 100 mg/kg, preferably about 0.01 to 20 mg/kg and most preferably 0.1 to 10 mg/kg of body weight.

[0555] It may nevertheless be necessary in some cases to deviate from the stated amounts, specifically as a function of the body weight, route of administration, individual response to the active ingredient, nature of the preparation and time or interval over which administration takes place. Thus, in some cases less than the abovementioned minimum amount may be sufficient, while in other cases the upper limit mentioned must be exceeded. In the case of administration of greater amounts, it may be advisable to divide them into several individual doses over the day.

[0556] The working examples which follow illustrate the invention. The invention is not restricted to the examples.

[0557] Unless stated otherwise, the percentages in the tests and examples which follow are percentages by weight; parts are parts by weight. Solvent ratios, dilution ratios and concentration data for liquid/liquid solutions, unless indicated otherwise, are based in each case on volume.

[1056] B-1. Enzymatic Chymase Assay

[1057] The enzyme source used is recombinant human chymase (expressed in HEK293 cells) or chymase purified from hamsters' tongues. The substrate used for chymase is Abz-HPFHL-Lys(Dnp)-NH.sub.2. For the assay, 1 .mu.l of a 50-fold concentrated solution of test substance in DMSO, 24 .mu.l of enzyme solution (dilution 1:80 000 human or 1:4000 hamster) and 25 .mu.l of substrate solution (final concentration 10 .mu.M) in assay buffer (Tris 50 mM (pH 7.5), sodium chloride 150 mM, BSA 0.10%, Chaps 0.10%, glutathione 1 mM, EDTA 1 mM) are combined in a white 384-hole microtitre plate (Greiner Bio-One, Frickenhausen, Germany). The reaction is incubated at 32 degrees for 60 min and the fluorescence emission at 465 nm after excitation at 340 nm is measured in a fluorescence reader, for example Tecan Ultra (Tecan, Mannedorf, Switzerland).

[1058] One test compound is tested on the same microtitre plate in 10 different concentrations from 30 .mu.M to 1 nM in a double determination. The data are normalized (enzyme reaction without inhibitor=0% inhibition, all assay components without enzyme=100% inhibition) and IC.sub.50 values are calculated using in-house software. Compounds in the context of the invention which were tested in this assay inhibited chymase activity with an IC.sub.50 of less than 10 .mu.M.

[1059] IC.sub.50 values representative of the compounds of the invention are shown in Table 1 below:

[1060] B-2. Measurement of Contraction on Isolated Aorta Rings from Hamsters

[1061] Male Syrian hamsters (120-150 g) were euthanized with carbon dioxide. The aorta was prepared and placed into ice-cold Krebs-Henseleit buffer. (Composition in mmol/l: sodium chloride 112, potassium chloride 5.9, calcium chloride 2.0, magnesium chloride 1.2, sodium dihydrogenphosphate 1.2, sodium hydrogencarbonate 25, glucose 11.5). The aorta was cut into rings of length 2 mm, transferred to an organ bath filled with 5 ml of Krebs-Henseleit buffer and connected to a myograph (DMT, Denmark). The buffer was warmed to 37.degree. C. and sparged with 95% oxygen, 5% carbon dioxide. In order to measure the isometric muscle contraction, the aorta rings were mounted between two hooks. One of the hooks was connected to a pressure transducer. The second hook was movable and allowed precise setting of the initial load by a protocol described by Mulvany and Halpern (Circulation Research 1977; 41:19-26).

[1062] Before each experiment, the responsiveness of the preparation was tested by adding potassium-containing Krebs-Henseleit solution (50 mmol/l KCl). A synthetic peptide, angiotensin 1-18, was used to induce contraction of the aorta rings. The angiotensin 1-18 is converted to angiotensin II independently of ACE. Subsequently, the aorta rings were incubated with the test substance for 20 min and the contraction measurement was repeated. Chymase inhibition is shown as a reduction in the contraction induced by angiotensin 1-18.

[1063] B-3. Isoprenaline-Induced Cardiac Fibrosis Model in Hamsters

[1064] For the experiments, male Syrian hamsters having a body weight of 130-160 g were used. Cardiac hypertrophy and cardiac fibrosis were induced by a daily subcutaneous injection of 20 mg/kg isoprenaline over 7 days. The test substance was administered orally to the animals 2 hours before the injection of the isoprenaline. Control groups were treated subcutaneously and orally with solvents in a corresponding manner. At the end of the experiment, the hearts were removed, weighed and fixed. The fibrotic tissue on the histological sections from the hearts was marked with the aid of Sirius Red staining. Subsequently, the fibrotic area was determined by planimetry.
