Claims for Patent: 7,169,791

Title:Inhibitors of tyrosine kinases
Abstract:The invention relates to compounds of formula ##STR00001## wherein the substituents R1, R2 and R4 have the meaning as set forth and explained in the description of the invention, to processes for the preparation of these compounds, pharmaceutical compositions containing same, the use thereof optionally in combination with one or more other pharmaceutically active compounds for the therapy of a disease which responds to an inhibition of protein kinase activity, especially a neoplastic disease, in particular leukaemia, and a method for the treatment of such a disease.

2. A compound of formula I according to claim 1 wherein R.sub.1 represents hydrogen; R.sub.2 represents phenyl substituted by trifluoremethyl and optionally a further substituent selected from the group consisting of hydroxy-lower alkyl, lower alkylamino, hydroxy-lower alkylamino, di-lower alkylamino, 1H-imidazolyl, lower alkyl-1H-imidazolyl, carbamoyl, lower alkylcarbamoyl, pyrrolidino, piperidino, piperazino, lower alkylpiperazino, morpholino, lower alkoxy, trifluoro-lower alkoxy, phenyl, pyridyl, and halogenyl; R.sub.4 represents methyl; or a N-oxide or pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof.

3. A compound of formula I according to claim 1 wherein R.sub.1 represents hydrogen; R.sub.2 represents phenyl substituted by 3-trifluoromethyl and optionally a further substituent selected from the group consisting of 1-hydroxy-1-methylethyl, methylamino, ethylamino, 2-hydroxy-1-propylamino, 2-hydroxy-2-propylamino, diethylamino, 1H-imidazolyl, 2- and 4-methyl-1H-imidazolyl, carbamoyl, methylcarbamoyl, pyrrolidino, piperidino, piperazino, 4-methylpiperazino, morpholino, methoxy, trifluoromethoxy, 2,2,2-trifluoroethoxy, phenyl, 2-, 3- and 4-pyridyl, chloro, and fluoro; R.sub.4 represents methyl; or a N-oxide or pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof.

4. The compound of formula I according to claim 1 wherein R.sub.1 represents hydrogen; R.sub.2 represents 3-(1-hydroxy-1-methylethyl)-5-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl; R.sub.4 represents methyl; or a N-oxide or pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof.

5. A compound according to claim 1 wherein R.sub.1 is hydrogen; R.sub.2 represents phenyl which is mono- or disubstituted by imidazol-lower alkoxy, lower alkyl amino, trifluoromethyl, hydroxy lower alkyl amino, bis-(lower alkoxy lower alkyl) amino, lower alkyl piperazinyl, piperidinyl, pyrrolidinyl, morpholinyl, phenyl, pyridyl, imidazolyl which is unsubstituted or mono- or disubstituted by lower alkyl or N-lower alkyl carbamoyl; R.sub.4 is lower alkyl; or a N-oxide or pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof.

6. A compound of formula I according to claim 1 wherein R.sub.1 represents hydrogen; R.sub.2 represents phenyl substituted by 3-trifluoromethyl and a further substituent selected from the group consisting of 2-methyl-1H-imidazolyl and 4-methyl-1H-imidazolyl; R.sub.4 represents methyl; or a N-oxide or pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof.
