Title: Macrocyclic aminophosphonic acid complexes, their formulations and use
Abstract:Particle emitting radionuclides, e.g. X-90, have been complexed with certain macrocyclic aminophosphonic acids wherein the nitrogen and phosphorus are interconnected by an alkylene group or substituted alkylene group. These complexes have been found useful in compositions and formulations for the therapeutic treatment of calcific tumors and the relief of bone pain in animals.
Inventor(s): Simon; Jaime (Angleton, TX), Wilson; David A. (Richwood, TX), Garlich; Joseph R. (Lake Jackson, TX), Troutner; David E. (Columbia, MO)
Assignee: The Dow Chemical Company (Midland, MI)
Filing Date:Dec 19, 1989
Application Number:07/452,848
Claims:1. A composition which comprises a complex having (1) a macrocyclic aminophosphonic acid, containing 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane as the macrocyclic moiety, or a physiologically acceptable salt thereof, wherein the nitrogen and phosphorous are interconnected by an alkylene or substituted alkylene radical of the formula ##STR5## wherein: X and Y are independently selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, hydroxyl, carboxyl, phosphonic, and hydrocarbon radicals having from 1-8 carbon atoms and physiologically acceptable salts of the acid radicals; and n is 1-3, with the proviso that when n>1, and X and Y may be the same as or different from the X and Y of any other carbon atom, and (2) the radionuclide Y-90 , and

wherein the resulting composition is therapeutically effective.

2. The composition of claim 1 wherein X and Y are hydrogen and n is 1.

3. A pharmaceutical formulation which comprises the composition of claim 1 and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

4. A pharmaceutical formulation of claim 3 which also contains a buffer.

5. The composition of claim 1 wherein the macrocyclic aminophosphonic acid has the structure ##STR6## wherein: substituents A, B, C and D are independently selected from hydrogen, hydrocarbon radicals having from 1-8 carbon atoms, and a moiety of the formula ##STR7## and physiologically acceptable salts of the acid radicals, wherein: X, Y and n are as defined in claim 1; X' and Y' are selected from independently hydrogen, methyl and ethyl radicals; n' is 2 or 3, with the proviso that at least two of said nitrogen substituents is a phosphorus-containing group.

6. The composition of claim 5 wherein the ligand to metal molar ratio is at least about 1:1.

7. The composition of claim 6 wherein the ligand to metal molar ratio is from about 1:1 to about 3:1.

8. The composition of claim 7 wherein the ligand to metal molar ratio is from about 1:1 to about 1.5:1.

9. A pharmaceutical formulation which comprises the composition of claim 5, and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

10. A pharmaceutical formulation of claim 9 which also contains a buffer.

11. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having one or more calcific tumors which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 9.

12. The method of claim 11 wherein the animal is a human.

13. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having one or more calcific tumors which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 10.

14. The method of claim 13 wherein the animal is a human.

15. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having bone pain which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 9.

16. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having bone pain which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 10.

17. The composition of claim 5 wherein the macrocyclic aminophosphonic acid is 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7,10-tetramethylenephosphonic acid or a physiologically acceptable salt.

18. The composition of claim 17 wherein the ligand to metal molar ratio is at least about 1:1.

19. The composition of claim 18 wherein the ligand to metal molar ratio is from about 1:1 to about 3:1.

20. The composition of claim 19 wherein the ligand to metal molar ratio is from about 1:1 to about 1.5:1.

21. A pharmaceutical formulation which comprises the composition of claim 17 and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

22. A pharmaceutical formulation of claim 21 which also contains a buffer.

23. A pharmaceutical formulation of claim 21 which also contains a buffer, and which is frozen form, and adapted to be thawed prior to use.

24. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having one or more calcific tumors which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 21.

25. The method of claim 24 wherein the animal is a human.

26. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having one or more calcific tumors which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 22.

27. The method of claim 26 wherein the animal is a human.

28. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having one or more calcific tumors which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 2.

29. The method of claim 28 wherein the animal is a human.

30. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having bone pain which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 21.

31. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having bone pain which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 22.

32. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having bone pain which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 23.

33. A pharmaceutical formulation which comprises a composition which comprises a complex having (1) a macrocyclic aminophosphonic acid of the structure ##STR8## wherein: substituents A, B, C and D are independently selected from hydrogen, hydrocarbon radicals having from 1-8 carbon atoms, and a moiety of the formula ##STR9## and physiologically acceptable salts of the acid radicals, wherein: X, Y and n are as defined in claim 1; X' and Y' are selected from independently hydrogen, methyl and ethyl radicals; n' is 2 or 3, with the proviso that at least two of said nitrogen substituents is a phosphorus-containing group and (2) at least one radionuclide selected from the group consisting of Sm-153, Gd-159, Ho-166, Lu-177, Y-90 and Yb-175, and

wherein the resulting composition is therapeutically effective,

which also contains a buffer, and which is in frozen form, and adapted to be thawed prior to use.

34. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having one or more calcific tumor which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 33.

35. The method of claim 34 wherein the animal is a human.

36. A method for the therapeutic treatment of an animal having bone pain which comprises administering to said animal a therapeutically effective amount of at least one pharmaceutical formulation of claim 33.
