Summary for Patent: 9,078,929
Title:.epsilon.-Polylysine conjugates and the use thereof
Abstract: The present invention relates to .epsilon.-polylysine conjugates, in particular conjugates of .epsilon.-polylysine with compounds carrying carboxyl groups, and to the preparation and use thereof for targeting of the kidney.
Inventor(s): Kuebelbeck; Armin (Bensheim, DE), Larbig; Gregor (Gelnhausen, DE), Mier; Walter (Bensheim, DE), Beijer; Barbro (Nussloch, DE), Haberkorn; Uwe (Schwetzingen, DE)
Assignee: Merck Patent GmbH (Darmstadt, DE)
Application Number:13/384,789
Patent Claims:1. A conjugate comprising at least one compound carrying carboxyl groups and an oligomer which consists of 10 to 1000 peptidically linked monomer units and which is either built up from more than 50% (based on the total number of monomer units) of .epsilon.-lysine monomer units or comprises at least 10 successive monomer units which are built up from at least 70% (based on the number of such successive monomer units) of .epsilon.-lysine monomer units, wherein the conjugate contains from 3 to 6 compounds carrying carboxyl groups per 10 monomer units, wherein, in the oligomer, said .epsilon.-lysine monomer units are bonded via the .epsilon.-amino group of their side chain, such that the oligomer is unbranched, wherein, in the compound carrying carboxyl groups, the proportion of carboxyl groups by molecular weight is greater than 30% and wherein at least one compound carrying carboxyl groups which is conjugated to the oligomer contains two or more free carboxyl groups.

2. The conjugate of claim 1, wherein, in addition, at least one active compound is covalently bonded to the conjugate.

3. The conjugate of claim 1, wherein the oligomer has a chain length of 10 to 50 monomer units.

4. The conjugate of claim 1, wherein the oligomer consists only of .epsilon.-lysine monomer units.

5. The conjugate of claim 1, wherein the oligomer consists of .epsilon.-polylysine.

6. The conjugate of claim 1, wherein at least one compound carrying carboxyl groups is bonded, directly or via a spacer, to the amino group of an .epsilon.-lysine monomer unit.

7. The conjugate of claim 1, wherein at least one compound carrying carboxyl groups is a complexing agent.

8. A process for the preparation of a conjugate of claim 1 which comprises at least the following process steps: a) providing an oligomer which consists of peptidically linked monomer units and which is either built up from more than 50% (based on the total number of monomer units) of .epsilon.-lysine monomer units or comprises at least 10 successive monomer units which are built up from at least 70% (based on the number of such successive monomer units) of .epsilon.-lysine monomer units, such that the oligomer is unbranched, and b) conjugating with the oligomer at least one compound carrying two or more free carboxyl groups to the oligomer from step a), wherein, optionally, at least one active compound is covalently bonded to the conjugate such that the conjugate contains from 3 to 6 compounds carrying carboxyl groups per 10 monomer units.

9. A medicament composition comprising a conjugate of claim 1.

10. A method for targeting of the kidney with a drug comprising administering the drug together with a conjugate of claim 1.

11. A macromolecule conjugate composed of at least two conjugates according to claim 1 which are covalently bonded to a macromolecule.

12. A therapeutic or image-enhancing composition, comprising a conjugate corresponding to claim 1.

13. A kit for the preparation of a medicament comprising a conjugate corresponding to claim 1.

14. A kit according to claim 13, for the preparation of a therapeutic or image-enhancing composition.

15. The conjugate of claim 2, wherein the active compound is selected from the group consisting of: immunosuppressants, cytostatics, protein kinase inhibitors, immunotherapeutic agents, antiphlogistics, antibiotics, cephalosporins, .beta.-lactamase inhibitors, carbapenems, monobactams, tetracyclines, macrolide antibiotics, glycopeptide antibiotics, enediynes, virostatics, antihypertensives, sartans, renin inhibitors, beta blockers, uricosurics, and diuretics.
