SULFONYL UREA DERIVATIVES AND THEIR USE IN THE
CONTROL OF INTERLEUKIN-1 ACTIVITY
Background of the Invention
This invention relates to substituted urea derivatives useful in the treatment of inflammation in joints, central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, endocardium, pericardium, lung, eyes, ears, skin and urogenital system. More particularly, this invention relates to aryl and heteroaryl substituted sulfonyl ureas that are useful inhibitors of interleukin-1σ and interleukin-1/ff processing and release.
IL-1's status as an important mediator of inflammation is based on many studies demonstrating this cytokine's proinflammatory activity. In vivo these effects are manifest as stimulation of cartilage resorption, induction of leukocyte recruitment and the acute phase response, and the production of fever and a shock like state. The changes mediated by IL-1 binding to its receptor include regulation of adhesion molecules and chemokines, stimulation of metalloprotease synthesis, increased synthesis of cyclooxygenase-2 and phospholipase A2 thus increasing prostaglandin production, the induction of nitric oxide synthasethus increasing nitric oxide production and stimulation of IL-6 synthesis resulting in changes in the synthesis of acute phase proteins. Two distinct forms of IL-1 (IL-1σ and \ Aβ) are produced by monocytes and macrophages in response to inflammatory stimuli.
The initial translation product of human \LAβ is a 31 kDa polypeptide that is incompetent to bind to IL-1 receptors on target cells. To promote its biological activity, prolL-1/? first must be cleaved by a thiol protease to generate a 17 kDa mature polypeptide species. This protease, interleukin-1 convertase (ICE), is a member of a novel family of cytosolic proteases that require an aspartic acid residue at the P1 subsite of their substrates. In contrast to prolL-1 ?, 31 kDa prolL-1σ is competent to bind to IL-1 receptors; nonetheless, this cytokine also is processed to a 17 kDa species by a protease distinct from ICE.
Both forms of IL-1 are synthesized without signal sequences and, as a result, these cytokines accumulate within the cytoplasm of LPS activated monocytes and macrophages. Thus, unlike the majority of secreted cytokines that are processed via the traditional secretory apparatus of the cell involving the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus, IL-1 must gain access to the extracellular compartment via a novel secretory pathway. The mechanistic elements of this pathway remain unknown. Recent studies, however, have demonstrated that synthesis of \ Aβ is not coupled to its secretion. Agents that serve as a stimulus to promote IL-1y_? posttranslational processing (both proteolytic clevage by ICE and release of the mature 17 kDa species) include ATP, cytolytic T-cells, and ionophores such as nigericin. Importantly, LPS-activated murine peritoneal macrophages in vivo also require a secondary stimulus to promote efficient release of mature IL-1 ?, and ATP was demonstrated to serve in this capacity. Thus, IL-1/? production is highly regulated both in vitro and in vivo by requiring separate stimuli to promote transcription, translation, and posttranslational maturation/release.
Therapeutic approaches that seek to inhibit ICE as a means to regulate production of IL-1 are likely to be limited because ICE inhibitors: 1 ) do not block release of prolL-1/? which could be processed extracellularly by other proteases to generate a mature biolgically active cytokine species, and 2) do not decrease production of IL-1σ by activated monocytes/macrophages. Therefore, atherapeutic approach that prevents activation of the posttranslational processing and release of IL-1 is likely to provide efficacy superior to that of an ICE inhibitor by blocking externalization of both cytokine species.
Mammalian cells capable of producing IL-1 include, but are not limited to, karatinocytes, endothelial cells, mesangial cells, thymic epithelial cells, dermal fibroblasts, chondrocytes, astrocytes, glioma cells, mononuclear phagocytes, granulocytes, T and B lymphocytes and NK cells.
The activities of interleukin-1 are many. Subcutaneous injection of IL-1 leads to fever, sleepiness, anorexia, generalized myalgias, arthralgias, headache, and, on increasing exposure, hypotension. Margination of neutrophils and maximal extravascular infiltration of the polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) is also observed. IL-1 also stimulates chondrocytes to release matrix metalloproteases, resulting in the degredation of cartilage matrix.
Accordingly, disease states in which the IL-1 processing and release inhibitors of Formula 1 may be useful as therapeutic agents include, but are not limited to, infectious diseases where active infection exists at any body site, such as meningitis and saipingitis; complication of infections including septic shock, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and/or adult respiratory distress syndrome; acute or chronic inflammation due to antigen, antibody and/or complement deposition; inflammatory conditions including arthritis, cholangitis, colitis, encephalitis, endocarditis, glomerulonephritis, hepatitis, myocarditis, pancreatitis, pericarditis, reperfusion injury and vasculitis. Immune-based diseases which may be responsive to IL-1 processing and release inhibitors of Formula 1 include but are not limited to conditions involving T-cells and/or macrophages such as acute and delayed hypersensitivity, graft rejection, and graft-versus-host disease; auto-immune diseases including Type 1 diabetes mellitus and multiple sclerosis. IL-1 processing and release inhibitors of Formula 1 may also be useful in the treatment of bone and cartilage resorption as well as diseases resulting in excessing deposition of extracellular matrix. Such diseases include periodonate diseases, interstitial pulmonary fibrosis, cirrhosis, systemic sclerosis and keloid formation. IL-1 processing and release inhibitors of Formula 1 may also be useful in treatment of certain tumors which produce IL-1 as an autocrine growth factor and in preventing the cachexia associated with certain tumors. IL-1 processing and release inhibitors of Formula 1 may also be useful in the treatment of neuronal diseases with an inflammatory component, including, but not limited to Alzheimers disease, depression and percussion injury. IL-1 processing and release inhibitors may also be useful in treating cardiovascular diseases in which recruitment of monocytes into the subendothelial space plays a role, such as the development of atherosclerotic placques.

Inhibition of ATP Induced Release of IL-1 B
Mononuclear cells are purified from 100 ml of blood isolated using LSM

(Organon Teknika). The heparinized blood (1.5 ml of 1000 units/ml heparin for injectin from Apotheconis added to each 50 ml syringe) is diluted with 20 ml of Medium (RMI 1640, 5% FBS, 1% pen/strep, 25 mM HEPES, pH 7.3). 30 ml of the diluted blood is layered over 15 ml of LSM (Organon Teknika) in a 50 ml conical polypropylene centrifuge tube. The tubes are centrifuged at 1200 rpm for 30 minutes in benchtop

Sorvall centrifuge at room temperature. The mononuclear cells, located at the interface of the plasma and LSM, are removed, diluted with Medium to achieve a final volume of 50 ml, and collected by centrifugation as above. The supernatant is discarded and the cell pellet is washed 2 times with 50 ml of medium. A 10 μ\ sample of the suspended cells is taken before the second wash for counting; based on this count the washed cells are diluted with medium to a final concentration of 2.0 x 106 cells/ml.
0.1 ml of the cell suspension is added to each well of 96 well plates. The monocytes are allowed to adhere for 2 hours, then non-adherent cells are removed by aspiration and the attached cells are washed twice with 100 /I f Medium. 100 μ\ of

Medium is added to each well, and the cells are incubated overnight at 37° C in a 5% carbon dioxide incubator.
The following day, 25 μ\ of 50 ng/ml LPS (in Medium) is added to each well and the cells are activated for 2 hours at 37° C.
Test agents are diluted with dimethyl sulfoxideto a final concentration of 10 mM. From this stock solution compounds are first diluted 1 :50 [5 μ\ of 10 mM stock + 245 μ\ Chase Medium (RPMI 1640, 25 mM Hepes, pH 6.9, 1% FBS, 1% pen/strep, 10 ng/ml LPS and 5 mM sodium bicarbonate]. A second dilution is prepared by adding 10 l of the 200 μM test agent to 90 μ\ of Chase Medium yielding a final concentration of 20 μM test agent; the dimethyl sulfoxide concentration at this point is 0.2%.
The LPS-activated monocytes are washed once with 100 μ\ of Chase Medium then 100 μ\ of Chase Medium (containing 0.2% dimethyl sulfoxide) is added to each well. 0.011 ml of the 20 μM test agent solutions are added to the appropriate wells, and the monocytes are incubated for 30 minutes at 37°C. At this point 2 mM ATP is introduced by adding 12 μl of a 20mM stock solution (previously adjusted to pH 7.2 with sodium hydroxide) and the cells are inccubated for an additional 3 hours at 37°C. The 96-well plates are centrifuged for 10 minutes at 2000 rpm in a Sorvall benchtop centrifuge to remove cells and cell debris. A 90 μl aliquot of each supernatant is removed and transferred to a 96 well round bottom plate and this plate is centrifuged a second time to ensure that all cell debris is removed. 30 μl of the resulting supernatant is added to a well of an IL-1B ELISA plate that also contains 70 μl of PBS, 1 % FBS. The ELISA plate is incubated overnight at 4°C. The ELISA (R&D

Systems) is run following the kit kirections.
Data Calculation and Analysis:
The amount of IL-1 β immunoreactivity in the chase medium samples is calculated as follows:
% control = (X-B) / (TOT-B) x 100
where X = OD450 nm of test compound well
B = OD450 of Reagent Blank wells on the ELISA
TOT = O.D450 of cells that were treated with 0.2%
dimethyl sulfoxide only.
