[0001] This application is a continuation under 35 U.S.C. .sctn. 120 of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 10/609,959, filed Jun. 30, 2003, which claims priority to U.S. patent application Ser. No. 60/392,759, filed Jul. 1, 2002, all of which are herein incorporated by reference in their entirety.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0002] The present invention relates to compounds, process for their synthesis, compositions and methods for the treatment and prevention of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. In particular, the present invention provides novel compounds, pharmaceutical compositions containing such compounds and methods for using these compounds in the treatment or prevention of HCV infection. The present invention also provides processes and intermediates for the synthesis of these compounds.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0003] Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is the major etiological agent of post-transfusion and community-acquired non-A non-B hepatitis worldwide. It is estimated that over 150 million people worldwide are infected by the virus. A high percentage of carriers become chronically infected and many progress to chronic liver disease, so-called chronic hepatitis C. This group is in turn at high risk for serious liver disease such as liver cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma and terminal liver disease leading to death.

[0004] The mechanism by which HCV establishes viral persistence and causes a high rate of chronic liver disease has not been thoroughly elucidated. It is not known how HCV interacts with and evades the host immune system. In addition, the roles of cellular and humoral immune responses in protection against HCV infection and disease have yet to be established. Immunoglobulins have been reported for prophylaxis of transfusion-associated viral hepatitis, however, the Center for Disease Control does not presently recommend immunoglobulins treatment for this purpose. The lack of an effective protective immune response is hampering the development of a vaccine or adequate post-exposure prophylaxis measures, so in the near-term, hopes are firmly pinned on antiviral interventions.

[0005] Various clinical studies have been conducted with the goal of identifying pharmaceutical agents capable of effectively treating HCV infection in patients afflicted with chronic hepatitis C. These studies have involved the use of interferon-alpha, alone and in combination with other antiviral agents. Such studies have shown that a substantial number of the participants do not respond to these therapies, and of those that do respond favorably, a large proportion were found to relapse after termination of treatment.

[0006] Until recently, interferon (IFN) was the only available therapy of proven benefit approved in the clinic for patients with chronic hepatitis C. However the sustained response rate is low, and interferon treatment also induces severe side-effects (i.e. retinopathy, thyroiditis, acute pancreatitis, depression) that diminish the quality of life of treated patients. Recently, interferon in combination with ribavirin has been approved for patients non-responsive to IFN alone. However, the side effects caused by IFN are not alleviated with this combination therapy.

[0007] Therefore, a need exists for the development of effective antiviral agents for treatment of HCV infection that overcomes the limitations of existing pharmaceutical therapies.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0008] The present invention provides compounds, compositions and methods that are useful for treating viral infections and associated diseases, particularly HCV infections and associated diseases.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

Abbreviations and Definitions

[0016] The abbreviations used herein are conventional, unless otherwise defined.

[0017] The terms "treat", "treating" and "treatment" refer to a method of alleviating or abrogating a disease and/or its attendant symptoms.

[0018] The terms "prevent", "preventing" and "prevention" refer to a method of "barring a subject from acquiring a disease. As used herein, "prevent", "preventing" and "prevention" also include reducing a subject's risk of acquiring a disease.

[0019] The term "therapeutically effective amount" refers to that amount of the compound being administered sufficient to prevent development of or alleviate to some extent one or more of the symptoms of the disease being treated.

[0020] The term "viral infection" refers to the introduction of a virus into cells or tissues, e.g., hepatitis C virus (HCV). In general, the introduction of a virus is also associated with replication. Viral infection may be determined by measuring virus antibody titer in samples of a biological fluid, such as blood, using, e.g., enzyme immunoassay. Other suitable diagnostic methods include molecular based techniques, such as RT-PCR, direct hybrid capture assay, nucleic acid sequence based amplification, and the like. A virus may infect an organ, e.g., liver, and cause disease, e.g., hepatitis, cirrhosis, chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma.

[0021] "Flaviviridae virus", as used herein, refers to a virus of the family Flaviviridae, which family includes the Flavivirus, Pestivirus and Hepacivirus or hepatitis C-like virus genera. Representative species of the genus Flavivirus include yellow fever virus, tick-borne encephalitis virus, Rio Bravo virus, Japanese encephalitis virus, Tyuleniy virus, Ntaya virus, Uganda S virus, Dengue virus and Modoc virus. Representative species of the genus Pestivirus include bovine diarrhea virus, border disease virus and hog cholera virus. A representative species of the genus of hepatitis C-like viruses is hepatitis C virus. Unassigned viruses in the family Flaviviridae are included in the meaning of Flaviviridae virus.

[0022] The term "modulate" refers to the ability of a compound to increase or decrease the catalytic activity of a viral polymerase, e.g. a viral RNA polymerase. A modulator preferably activates the catalytic activity of a viral polymerase or more preferably activates or inhibits the catalytic activity of a viral polymerase depending on the concentration of the compound exposed to the viral polymerase or most preferably inhibits the catalytic activity of a viral polymerase.

[0023] The term "modify" refers to the act of altering, in whole or in part, the structure of a molecule, e.g., a protein. Modification may be covalent or noncovalent, and includes, but is not limited to, aggregation, association, substitution, conjugation and/or elimination of a chemical group. Modification may alter the function or other properties (e.g., chemical, physical) of the molecule.

[0024] The term "alkyl," by itself or as part of another substituent, means, unless otherwise stated, a straight or branched chain, or cyclic hydrocarbon radical, or combination thereof, which may be fully saturated, mono- or polyunsaturated and can include di- and multivalent radicals, having the number of carbon atoms designated (i.e. C.sub.1-C.sub.8 means 1-8 eight carbons). Examples of saturated hydrocarbon radicals include groups such as methyl, ethyl, n-propyl, isopropyl, n-butyl, t-butyl, isobutyl, sec-butyl, cyclohexyl, (cyclohexyl)ethyl, cyclopropylmethyl, homologs and isomers of, for example, n-pentyl, n-hexyl, n-heptyl, n-octyl, and the like. An unsaturated alkyl group is one having one or more double bonds or triple bonds. Examples of unsaturated alkyl groups include vinyl, 2-propenyl, crotyl, 2-isopentenyl, 2-(butadienyl), 2,4-pentadienyl, 3 -(1,4-pentadienyl), ethynyl, I- and 3 -propynyl, 3 -butynyl, and the higher homologs and isomers. The term "alkylene" by itself or as part of another substituent means a divalent radical derived from an alkane, as exemplified by --CH.sub.2CH.sub.2CH.sub.2CH.sub.2--. A "lower alkyl" or "lower alkylene" is a shorter chain alkyl or alkylene group, having eight or fewer carbon atoms.

[0025] The terms "alkoxy", "alkylamino" and "alkylthio" refer to those groups having an alkyl group attached to the remainder of the molecule through an oxygen, nitrogen or sulfur atom, respectively. Similarly, the term "dialkylamino" is used in a conventional sense to refer to --NR'15R15'' wherein the R groups can be the same or different alkyl groups.

[0026] The term "heteroalkyl," by itself or in combination with another term, means, unless otherwise stated, a stable straight or branched chain, or cyclic hydrocarbon radical, or combinations thereof, fully saturated or containing from 1 to 3 degrees of unsaturation, consisting of the stated number of carbon atoms and from one to three heteroatoms selected from the group consisting of O, N, and S, and wherein the nitrogen and sulfur atoms may optionally be oxidized and the nitrogen heteroatom may optionally be quaternized. The heteroatom(s) O, N and S may be placed at any interior position of the heteroalkyl group. Examples include --CH.sub.2--CH.sub.2--O--CH.sub.3, --CH.sub.2--CH.sub.2--NH--CH.s- ub.3, --CH.sub.2--CH.sub.2--N(CH.sub.3)--CH.sub.3, --CH.sub.2--S--CH.sub.2- --CH.sub.3, --CH.sub.2--CH.sub.2--S(O)--CH.sub.3, --CH.sub.2--CH.sub.2--S(- O).sub.2--CH.sub.3, --CH.dbd.CH--O--CH.sub.3, --Si(CH.sub.3).sub.3, CH.sub.2--CH.dbd.N--OCH.sub.3, and --CH.dbd.CH--N(CH.sub.3)--CH.sub.3.

Also included in the term "heteroalkyl" are those radicals described in more detail below as "heterocycloalkyl." The term "heteroalkylene" by itself or as part of another substituent means a divalent radical derived from heteroalkyl, as exemplified by --CH.sub.2--CH.sub.2--S--CH.sub.2CH.sub.2-- and --CH.sub.2--S--CH.sub.2CH- .sub.2--NH--CH.sub.2--. For heteroalkylene groups, heteroatoms can also occupy either or both of the chain termini. Still further, for alkylene and heteroalkylene linking groups, no orientation of the linking group is implied.

[0027] The terms "cycloalkyl" and "heterocycloalkyl", by themselves or in combination with other terms, represent, unless otherwise stated, cyclic versions of "alkyl" and "heteroalkyl", respectively. Additionally, for heterocycloalkyl, a heteroatom can occupy the position at which the heterocycle is attached to the remainder of the molecule. Examples of cycloalkyl. include cyclopentyl, cyclohexyl, 1-cyclohexenyl, 3-cyclohexenyl, cycloheptyl, and the like. Examples of heterocycloalkyl include 1-piperidinyl, 2-piperidinyl, 3-piperidinyl, 4-morpholinyl, 3-morpholinyl, tetrahydrofuran-2-yl, tetrahydrofuran-3-yl, tetrahydrothien-2-yl, tetrahydrothien-3-yl, 1-piperazinyl, 2-piperazinyl, and the like.

[0029] The term "aryl," employed alone or in combination with other terms (e.g., aryloxy, arylthioxy, aralkyl) means, unless otherwise stated, an aromatic substituent which can be a single ring or multiple rings (up to three rings) which are fused together or linked covalently. The term "heteroaryl" is meant to include those aryl rings which contain from zero to four heteroatoms selected from N, O, and S, wherein the nitrogen and sulfur atoms are optionally oxidized, and the nitrogen atom(s) are optionally quaternized. The "heteroaryl" groups can be attached to the remainder of the molecule through a heteroatom. Non-limiting examples of aryl and heteroaryl groups include phenyl, 1-naphthyl, 2-napthyl, 4-biphenyl, 1-pyrrolyl, 2-pyrrolyl, 3-pyrrolyl, 3-pyrazolyl, 2-imidazolyl, 4-imidazolyl, pyrazinyl, 2-oxazolyl, 4-oxazolyl, 2-phenyl-4-oxazolyl, 5-oxazolyl, 3-isoxazolyl, 4-isoxazolyl, 5-isoxazolyl, 2-thiazolyl, 4-thiazolyl, 5-thiazolyl, 2-furyl, 3-furyl, 2-thienyl, 3-thienyl, 2-pyridyl, 3-pyridyl, 4-pyridyl, 2-pyrimidyl, 4-pyrimidyl, 5-benzothiazolyl, purinyl, 2-benzimidazolyl, 1-indolyl, 5-indolyl, 1-isoquinolyl, 5-isoquinolyl, 2-quinoxalinyl, 5-quinoxalinyl, 3-quinolyl, and 6-quinolyl.

[0030] Substituents for each of the above noted aryl ring systems are selected from the group of acceptable substituents described below. The term "aralkyl" is meant to include those radicals in which an aryl or heteroaryl group is attached to an alkyl group (e.g., benzyl, phenethyl, pyridylmethyl and the like) or a heteroalkyl group (e.g., phenoxymethyl, 2-pyridyloxymethyl, 3-(1-naphthyloxy)propyl, and the like).

[0031] Each of the above terms (e.g., "alkyl . . . heteroalkyl" and "aryl") are meant to include both substituted and unsubstituted forms of the indicated radical. Preferred substituents for each type of radical are provided below.

[0032] Substituents for the alkyl and heteroalkyl radicals (including those groups often referred to as alkylene, alkenyl, heteroalkylene, heteroalkenyl, alkynyl, cycloalkyl, heterocycloalkyl, cycloalkenyl, and heterocycloalkenyl) can be a variety of groups selected from: --OR', .dbd.O, .dbd.NR', .dbd.N--OR', --NR'R''--SR', -halogen, --SiR'R''R, --OC(O)R', --C(O)R', --CO.sub.2R', CONR'R'', --OC(O)NR'R''--NR'C(O)R', --NR'--C(O)NR''R''', --NR'COOR'', --NH--C(NH.sub.2).dbd.NH, --NR'C(NH.sub.2).dbd.N--H, --NH--C(NH.sub.2).dbd.NR', --S(O)R', S(O).sub.2R', --S(O).sub.2NR'R'', --CN and --NO.sub.2 in a number ranging from zero to (2N+1), where N is the total number of carbon atoms in such radical. R', R'' and X'' each independently refer to hydrogen, unsubstituted Cl-COalkyl and heteroalkyl, unsubstituted aryl, aryl substituted with 1-3 halogens, unsubstituted alkyl, alkoxy or thioalkoxy groups, or aryl-(C1 -C4)alkyl groups. When R' and R'' are attached to the same nitrogen atom, they can be combined with the nitrogen atom to form a 3-7 membered ring. For example, --NR'R'' is meant to include 1-pyrrolidinyl and 4-morpholinyl. From the above discussion of substituents, one of skill in the art will understand that the term "alkyl" is meant to include groups such as haloalkyl (e.g., --CF.sub.3 and --CH.sub.2CF.sub.3) and acyl (e.g., --C(O)CH.sub.3, --C(O)CF.sub.3, --C(O)CH.sub.2OCH.sub.3, and the like).

[0033] Similarly, substituents for the aryl groups are varied and are selected from: halogen, --OR, --OC(O)R, --NR'R'', --SR, --R', --CN, --NO.sub.2, --CO.sub.2R', --CONR'R:', --C(O)R', --OC(O)NR'R'', --NR''C(O)R', --NR''C(O).sub.2R', --NR'--C(O)NR''R''', --NH--C(NH.sub.2).dbd.NH, --NR'C(NH.sub.2).dbd.NH, --NH--C(NH.sub.2).dbd.NR', --S(O)R', --S(O).sub.2R', --S(O).sub.2NR'R'', --N.sub.3, --CH(Ph).sub.2, perfluoro(CI-C4)alkoxy, perfluoro(CI-C4)alkyl, in a number ranging from zero to the total number of open valences on the aromatic ring system; and where R', R'' and R''' are independently selected from hydrogen, (C1-C8)alkyl and heteroalkyl, unsubstituted aryl, (unsubstituted aryl)-(C1-C4)alkyl, and (unsubstituted aryloxy-(C.sub.1-C.sub.4)alkyl.

[0034] Two of the substituents on adjacent atoms of the aryl ring may optionally be replaced with a substituent of the formula --S--C(O)--(CH.sub.2)q-R--, wherein S and R are independently --NH--, --O--, --CH.sub.2-- or a single bond, and the subscript q is an integer of from 0 to 2. Alternatively, two of the substituents on adjacent atoms of the aryl ring may optionally be replaced with a substituent of the formula -A-(CH.sub.2).sub.w-B--, wherein A and B are independently --CH.sub.2--, --O--, --NH--, --S--, --S(O)--, --S(O).sub.2--, --S(O).sub.2NR'-- or a single bond, and w is an integer of from 1 to 3. One of the single bonds of the new ring so formed may optionally be replaced with a double bond. Alternatively, two of the substituents on adjacent atoms of the aryl ring may optionally be replaced with a substituent of the formula --(CH.sub.2).sub.w-G-(CH.sub.2).sub.w-- where w and w' are independently integers of from 0 to 3, and G is --O--, --NR'--, --S--, --S(O)--, --S(O).sub.2--, or --S(O).sub.2NR'--. The substituent R' in --NR'-- and --S(O).sub.2NR'-- is selected from hydrogen or unsubstituted (CI-C6)alkyl.

[0035] As used herein, the term "heteroatom" is meant to include oxygen (O), nitrogen (N), ) and sulfur(S).

[0036] The term "pharmaceutically acceptable salts" is meant to include salts of the active compounds which are prepared with relatively nontoxic acids or bases, depending on the particular substituents found on the compounds described herein. When compounds of the present invention contain relatively acidic functionalities, base addition salts can be obtained by contacting the neutral form of such compounds with a sufficient amount of the desired base, either neat or in a suitable inert solvent. Examples of pharmaceutically acceptable base addition salts include sodium, potassium, calcium, ammonium, organic amino, or magnesium salt, or a similar salt. When compounds of the present invention contain relatively basic functionalities, acid addition salts can be obtained by contacting the neutral form of such compounds with a sufficient amount of the desired acid, either neat or in a suitable inert solvent. Examples of pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salts include those derived from inorganic acids like hydrochloric, hydrobromic, nitric, carbonic, monohydrogencarbonic, phosphoric, monohydrogenphosphoric, dihydrogenphosphoric, sulfuric, monohydrogensulfuric, hydriodic, or phosphorous acids and the like, as well as the salts derived from relatively nontoxic organic acids like acetic, propionic, isobutyric, maleic, malonic, benzoic, succinic, suberic, fumaric, mandelic, phthalic, benzenesulfonic, p-tolylsulfonic, citric, tartaric, methanesulfonic, and the like. Also included are salts of amino acids such as arginate and the like, and salts of organic acids like glucuronic or galactouronic acids and the like (see, for example, Berge, S. M., et. al. (1977) J. Pharm. Sci., 66:1-19). Certain specific compounds of the present invention contain both basic and acidic functionalities that allow the compounds to be converted into either base or acid addition salts.

[0037] The neutral forms of the compounds may be regenerated by contacting the salt with a base or acid and isolating the parent compound in the conventional manner.

[0038] The parent form of the compound differs from the various salt forms in certain physical properties, such as solubility in polar solvents, but otherwise the salts are equivalent to the parent form of the compound for the purposes of the present invention.

[0039] In addition to salt forms, the present invention provides compounds which are in a prodrug form. Prodrugs of the compounds described herein are those compounds that readily undergo chemical changes under physiological conditions to provide the compounds of the present invention. Additionally, prodrugs can be converted to the compounds of the present invention by chemical or biochemical methods in an ex-vivo environment. For example, prodrugs can be slowly converted to the compounds of the present invention when placed in a transdermal patch reservoir with a suitable enzyme or chemical reagent. Prodrugs are often useful because, in some situations, they may be easier to administer than the parent drug. They may, for instance, be bioavailable by oral administration whereas the parent drug is not. The prodrug may also have improved solubility in pharmacological compositions over the parent drug. A wide variety of prodrug derivatives are known in the art, such as those that rely on hydrolytic cleavage or oxidative activation of the prodrug. An example, without limitation, of a prodrug would be a compound of the present invention which is administered as an ester (the "prodrug"), but then is metabolically hydrolyzed to the carboxylic acid, the active entity. Additional examples include peptidyl derivatives of a compound of the invention.

[0040] Certain compounds of the present invention can exist in unsolvated forms as well as solvated forms, including hydrated forms. In general, the solvated forms are equivalent to unsolvated forms and are intended to be encompassed within the scope of the present invention. Certain compounds of the present invention may exist in multiple crystalline or amorphous forms. In general, all physical forms are equivalent for the uses contemplated by the present invention and are intended to be within the scope of the present invention.

[0041] Certain compounds of the present invention possess asymmetric carbon atoms (optical centers) or double bonds; the racemates, diastereomers, geometric isomers and individual isomers are all intended to be encompassed within the scope of the present invention unless otherwise stated.

[0042] The compounds of the present invention may also contain unnatural proportions of atomic isotopes at one or more of the atoms that constitute such compounds. For example, the compounds may be radiolabeled with radioactive isotopes, such as for example tritium (.sup.3H), iodine-125 (.sup.125I) or carbon-14 (.sup.14C). All isotopic variations of the compounds of the present invention, whether radioactive or not, are intended to be encompassed within the scope of the present invention.

Description of the Embodiments

[0043] General Viral polymerases are attractive targets for antiviral drug development. For example, inhibitors of Viral RNA polymerase activity have been described; see, for example, Jaen, Juan, et. al., WO 0177091, Altamura et. al., WO 00/06529 and Bailey et. al., WO 00/10573, which references are incorporated by reference herein.

[0044] The HCV protein NS5B is an RNA dependent RNA polymerase, see, e.g., Lohmann et al. (1997) J. Virol. 71:8416-8428, Behrens et al. (1996) EMBO J 15:12-22 and Ishido et al. (1998) Biochem. Biophys. Res. Comm. 244:35-40, which references are incorporated by reference herein. The sequence of various genotypes of HCV NS5B are known (Kato et al. (1990) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA. 87:9524-9528; Webster, G., et al. (2000) Balliere's Clinical Gastroenterology 14, 229-240; van Doorn, L. J. (1994) J. of Medical Virology 43, 345-356; Houghton, M. (1996) Hepatitis C viruses Fields Virology: Third Ed., edited by B. N. Fields, D. M. Knipe, P. M. Howley, et al. Lippincoft-Raven Publishers, Philadelphia, pp. 1035-1058; Lau, J. Y. et. al., J Infect Dis. 1995, 171(2), 281-9). However, NS5B contains sequence motifs that are highly conserved among all the RNA-dependent RNA polymerases characterized to date.

[0045] The present invention provides compounds having antiviral activity. It is believed that the compounds of the invention will block viral replication by specifically inhibiting the activity of a viral polymerase. Viral RNA polymerase is required for the transcription of genomic RNA, which process is required for replication of the genome of an RNA virus. Therefore, inhibition of viral RNA polymerase will inhibit viral replication.

[0046] Non-limiting examples of the embodiments are given in Table 1. TABLE-US-00001 TABLE 1

Analysis of the Compounds

[0047] The subject compounds and compositions may be demonstrated to have pharmacological activity, e.g, antiviral activity, in in vitro and in vivo assays, as known in the art. See for example Behrens, S. E., et. al EMBO J. 15:12-22; Lohmann, V., et. al., 1997, J. Virol. 71:8416-8428; Ferrari, E., et al. 1999. J. Virol. 73:1649-1654; Bealieu, P. L. et. al., WO0204425 A2; Perni, R. B. et. al., WO9833501; which references are incorporated by reference herein.

[0048] The subject compounds and compositions are capable of specifically inhibiting or suppressing a viral infection, e.g., an HCV infection. An in vivo assessment of the antiviral activity of the compounds of the invention may be made using an animal model of viral infection, e.g., a primate model. Cell-based assays may be performed using, e.g, a cell line directly infected with a virus. Cell-based assays for activity against a specific viral component, e.g., a polymerase, may also be performed. Additionally, biochemical or mechanism-based assays, e.g., transcription assays using a purified protein, Northern blot, RT-PCR, etc., may be performed.

[0049] The above-described assays are exemplary and not intended to limit the scope of the invention. The skilled practitioner can appreciate that modifications can be made to conventional assays to develop equivalent assays that obtain the same result.

[0050] High throughput assays for the presence, absence, quantification, or other properties of particular compounds are well known to those of skill in the art. Such assays may be adapted to identify compounds capable of modifying a viral RNA dependent RNA polymerase protein, e.g., NS5B using functional protein. Preferred assays thus detect enhancement or inhibition of HCV RNA-dependent RNA activity.

Compositions

[0051] In view of the antiviral activity associated with the compounds described above, the present invention further provides pharmaceutical compositions comprising one or more of the above compounds in combination with a pharmaceutically acceptable excipient.

[0052] In one embodiment, the invention provides the subject compounds combined with a pharmaceutically acceptable excipient such as sterile saline or other medium, water, gelatin, an oil, etc. to form pharmaceutically acceptable compositions. The compositions and/or compounds may be administered alone or in combination with any convenient carrier, diluent, etc. and such administration may be provided in single or multiple dosages. Useful carriers include solid, semi-solid or liquid media including water and non-toxic organic solvents.

[0053] In another embodiment, the invention provides the subject compounds in the form of a prodrug, which can be metabolically or chemically converted to the subject compound by the recipient host. A wide variety of prodrug derivatives are known in the art such as those that rely on hydrolytic cleavage or oxidative activation of the prodrug.

[0054] The compositions may be provided in any convenient form, including tablets, capsules, lozenges, troches, hard candies, powders, sprays, creams, suppositories, etc. As such, the compositions, in pharmaceutically acceptable dosage units or in bulk, may be incorporated into a wide variety of containers. For example, dosage units may be included in a variety of containers including capsules, pills, etc.

Methods of Use

[0055] In yet another aspect, the present invention provides novel methods for the use of the foregoing compounds and compositions. In particular, the invention provides novel methods for treating or preventing viral infections, e.g., HCV infection. The invention also provides novel methods for treating or preventing diseases resulting from, in whole or in part, viral infections, preferably diseases resulting from, in whole or in part, infection, such as hepatitis C, cirrhosis, chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma. The methods typically involve administering to a patient an effective amount of one or more of the subject compounds or compositions.

[0056] The compositions may be advantageously combined and/or used in combination with other antiviral agents which are either therapeutic or prophylactic agents, and different from the subject compounds. The compositions may also be advantageously combined and/or used in combination with agents that treat conditions often associated with the viral infections that are sensitive to the present compounds, such as anti-HIV agents or immunosuppressive agents. In many instances, administration in conjunction with the subject compositions enhances the efficacy of such agents. Accordingly, the present compounds, when combined or administered in combination with other antiviral agents, can be used in dosages which are less than the expected amounts when used alone, or less than the calculated amounts for combination therapy.

[0057] Exemplary treatment options for hepatitis C (HCV) include interferons, e.g., interferon alfa-2b, interferon alfa-2a, and interferon alfacon-1. Less frequent interferon dosing can be achieved using pegylated interferon (interferon attached to a polyethylene glycol moiety which significantly improves its pharmacokinetic profile). Combination therapy with interferon alfa-2b (pegylated and unpegylated) and ribavarin has also been shown to be efficacious for some patient populations. Other agents currently being developed include RNA replication inhibitors, antisense agents, therapeutic vaccines, protease inhibitors, helicase inhibitors and antibody therapy (monoclonal and polyclonal).

[0058] The compounds and compositions of the present invention may also be used with agents that enhance the bodys immune system, including low-dose cyclophosphamide, thymostimulin, vitamins and nutritional supplements (e.g., antioxidants, including vitamins A, C, E, beta-carotene, zinc, selenium, glutathione, coenzyme Q-10 and echinacea), and vaccines, e.g., the immunostimulating complex (ISCOM), which comprises a vaccine formulation that combines a multimeric 5 presentation of antigen and an adjuvant.

[0059] The compositions and compounds of the invention and the pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof can be administered in any effective way such as via oral, parenteral or topical routes. Generally, the compounds are administered in dosages ranging from about 2 mg up to about 2,000 mg per day, although variations will necessarily occur depending on the disease target, the patient, and the route of administration. Preferred dosages are administered orally in the range of about 0.05 mg/kg to about 20 mg/kg, more preferably in the range of about 0.05 mg/kg to about 2 mg/kg, most preferably in the range of about 0.05 mg/kg to about 0.2 mg per kg of body weight per day.

Preparation of the Compounds

[0060] The compounds of this invention can be prepared by one or more of the following schemes.

[0061] In Scheme 1, R1-3, A, X and Z are as defined above. The reaction of I with II to give III, can be accomplished using palladium catalyzed coupling chemistry well described in the art (Bussalari, J. C., et. al., Org. Lett., 1999, 1, 965; Yeager, G. W., et. al., Synthesis, 1991, 61; Hartwig, J. F., et. al., J. Org. Chem., 1999, 64, 5575; Alonso, D. A., et. al., Org. Lett., 2000, 2, 1823; Huff, B. E., et. al. Org. Synth., 1997, 75, 53).

[0062] Thus, M1 is selected from the group F, Cl, Br, and I;

[0063] M2 is selected from the group B(OH).sub.2, Sn(R'2).sub.3, NHR2 and OSO.sub.2CF.sub.3;

[0064] alternatively, when M2 is selected from the group F, Cl, Br, and I;

[0065] M1 is selected from the group B(OH).sub.2, Sn(R'2).sub.3, NHR2 and OSO.sub.2CF.sub.3.

[0066] The reaction of I with II may also be accomplished using standard methodology when The reaction of I with II may also be accomplished using standard methodology when M1 is an acid halide, aryl halide, alkyl halide and the like and M2 is OH, SH, or NHR2, or, as appropriate, when M2 is an acid halide aryl halide, alkyl halide and the like and M1 is OH, SH, or NHR2.

[0067] In the reaction of III with IV to give the title compounds, P represents a substituted phosphorous as found in Wittig, Wittig-Horner, and the like, reagents. Examples of P include dialkoxy phosphonate, dialkyl phosphinate and the like.

[0068] Conditions for the reaction of III with IV to give the compounds of Formula 1 are also well known in the art. See for example Moody, C. J., et. al., Chem. Commun. 1997, 2391; Beecher, J. E., et. al., Tetrahedron Lett., (1998), 39, 3927; Dumas, M. et. al., Tetrahedron Lett., (1989), 30, 5121; Schiavi, B. M., et. al., J. Org. Chem. (2002), 67, 620.

[0069] Scheme 2 represents the well-known azlactone synthesis. See for example Herbst, R. M. et. al. in Organic Synthesis, Vol. 2, p.1.

[0070] It is obvious to one of ordinary skill in the art that further transformations of the products and intermediates of Schemes 1 and 2 are readily achieved using methods common in the art. These transformations include for example, ester, nitrile and amide hydrolysis; ester, amide and nitrile reduction; primary and secondary amine alkylation, acylation, aroylation; alcohol acylation, aroylation and alkylation; and the like.

[0403] Evaluation of Polymerase Activity

[0404] Compounds of the present invention are evaluated for inhibition of HCV NS5b RNA dependent RNA polymerase activity in assays comprised of a suitable buffer (e.g. 20 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.6), primed or unprimed RNA templates, GTP, ATP, CTP, and UTP, MnCl.sub.2 or MgCl.sub.2, and reducing agent such as 10 mM dithiothreitol or 2-mercaptoethanol. The assay buffer may contain salts such as ammonium acetate, KCl, or NaCl, and nonionic or zwitterionic detergents such as Tween or CHAPS. The incorporation of nucleotides into the complementary RNA strand may be monitored by the incorporation of radiolabeled NTP (e.g. .sup.3H labeled GTP). Suitable RNA templates for de novo initiation in the presence of 20-50 .mu.M GTP or ATP are the homopolymers poly rC and poly rU, respectively. Heteropolymer RNA templates with 1-3 cytidine (C) bases or 1-3 uridine (U) bases at the 3' terminus of the template may also be used for de novo initiation. Primed RNA templates such as poly rC primed with oligo rG or oligo dG, and poly rA primed with oligo rU may also be used to detect polymerase activity. The primers may be any length greater than 10 bases. A biotin residue may be added to the 5' end of the template or the 5' end of the primer to capture the template and the newly synthesized, complementary strand on avidin coated spheres. One embodiment of this technology consists of a mixture of NS5b polymerase, a poly rC RNA template primed with 5' biotinylated oligo rG, 20 mM Tris HCl pH 7.6, 100 mM ammonium acetate, 10 mM dithiothreitol, 2 mM CHAPS, 1 mM MgCl.sub.2, and 150-200 nM .sup.3H labeled GTP. Test compounds (inhibitors) may be incorporated in the reaction mixture with up to 10% DMSO. The reaction is run for various times (1-180 minutes) at 22-37.degree. C., and stopped by the addition of 10-140 mM EDTA. Scintillation Proximity Assay avidin-coated beads (Amersham Pharmacia Biotech) are added to capture the ds RNA product; or the reaction mixtures may be transferred to avidin coated Flash Plates (Perkin Elmer Life Sciences). The incorporation of radiolabeled GTP into the complementary strand is measured in 96, 384, or 1536 well plates in scintillation counters such as the Wallac Microbeta and Packard TopCount.

[0405] A substantial number of the compounds exhibited IC50 values ranging from less than 1 to about 30 .mu.M or more. In Table 2, the inhibitory activity of representative examples is provided. Activity is listed in Table 2 as +++ if the concentration for 50% inhibition is <10 .mu.M, ++ if activity is 11-30 .mu.M and + if activity is >30 .mu.M.
