Claims for Patent: 6,294,540

Title: Carbocyclic nucleoside hemisulfate and its use in treating viral infections
Abstract:The hemisulfate salt of (1S,4R)-cis-4-[2-amino-6-(cyclopropylamino)-9H-purin-9-yl]-2-cyclopentene- 1-methanol or a solvate of it is used in the treatment of viral infections.
Inventor(s): Brodie; Alastair Couper (London, GB), Jones; Martin Francis (Kneloworth, GB), Seager; John Frederick (Ware, GB), Wallis; Christopher John (Rayston, GB)
Assignee: Glaxo Wellcome Inc. (Research Triangle Park, NC)
Application Number:09/423,982
Patent Claims: 1. The hemisufate salt of (1S,4R)-cis-4-[2-amino-6-(cyclopropylamino)-9H-purin-9-yl]-2-cyclopentene- 1-methanol or a solvate thereof.

2. The compound as claimed in claim 1 in the form of a hydrate.

3. A method for the treatment of an HIV or HBV infection in a human host which comprises administering to said host an effective amount of a compound as claimed in claim 1.

4. A pharmaceutical formulation comprising a compound as claimed in claim 1 and a pharmaeutically acceptable carrier therefor.

5. A pharmaceutical formulation as claimed in claim 4 in the form of a tablet, a capsule, or liquid formulation.

6. A pharmaceutical formulation as claimed in claim 4 adapted for parenteral administration.

7. A dicarboxylate salt of (1S,4R)-cis-4-[2-amino-6-(cyclopropylamino)-9H-purin-9-yl]-2-cyclopentene- 1-methanol wherein said dicarboxylate is selected from the group consisting of glutarate, hemisuberate, adipate, fumarate, hemisebacate and pimelate.

8. The glutarate salt of (1S,4R)-cis-4-[2-amino-6-(cyclopropylamino)-9H-purin-9-yl]-2-cyclopentene- 1-methanol.

9. A process for the preparation-of the compound claimed in claim 1 which process comprises:

adding sulfuric acid to (1S,4R)-cis-4-[2-amino-6-(cyclopropylamino)-9H-purin-9-yl]-2-cyclopentene- 1-methanol in a stoichiometric ratio of approximately 1:2.

10. A process for the preparation of the compound claimed in claim 1 which process comprises:

adding to (1S,4R)-cis-4-2-cyclopentene-1-methanol sulfate (1:1 salt) to (1S,4R)-cis-4-2-cyclopentene-1-methanol in a substantially 1:1 molar ratio in solution.

11. The benzoate or salicylate salt of (1S,4R)-cis-4-[2-amino-6-(cyclopropylamino)-9H-purin-9-yl]-2-cyclopentene- 1 -methanol.

12. A process for the preparation of the compound claimed in claim 1 which process comprises adding (1) sulfuric acid to (2) a salt of (1S,4R)-cis-4-[2-amino-6-(cyclopropylamino)-9H-purin-9-yl]-2-cyclopentene- 1-methanol selected from the group consisting of succinate, glutarate, hemisuberate, adipate, fumarate, hemisebacate and pimelate salts and any mixtures thereof, or from the group consisting of benzoate and salicylate salts and any mixtures thereof, wherein said sulfuric acid (1) and said salt (2) are present in the stoichiometric ratio of 2:1 if said salt (2) is a 1:1 salt, and 1:1 if said salt (2) is a 2:1 salt.

13. A pharmaceutical formulation as claimed in claim 4, 5, or 6 additionally comprising one or more therapeutic agents selected from the group consisting of nucleoside HIV reverse transcriptase inhibitors, non-nucleoside HIV reverse transcriptase inhibitors, HIV protease inhibitors, immune modulators selected from the group consisting of interleukin II, erythyropoetin and tucaresol, and .alpha.-interferon.
