Title: Indole derivatives
Abstract:Compounds of the formula ##STR1## wherein R.sub.1, R.sub.2, R.sub.3, X and n are as defined in the claims and the pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof are new. These compounds are useful psychotherapeutics and are potent serotonin (5-HT.sub.1) agonists and may be used in the treatment of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obesity, drug abuse, cluster headache, migraine, pain, chronic paroxysmal hemicrania and headache associated with vascular disorders, and other disorders arising from deficient serotonergic neurotransmission. The compounds can also be used as centrally acting hypertensives and vasodilators. A process for forming indoles by transition metal catalyzed cyclization of dihalogenated intermediate is also disclosed.
Inventor(s): Macor; John E. (New York, NY), Wythes; Martin J. (New York, NY)
Assignee: Pfizer Inc (New York, NY)
Filing Date:Jun 06, 1995
Application Number:08/466,645
Claims:1. A compound of the formula ##STR44## wherein n is 0, 1, or 2; X is hydrogen, chlorine, bromine, or iodine; R.sub.1 is hydrogen; R.sub.2 is --(CH.sub.2).sub.m --SO.sub.2 NR.sub.5 R.sub.6 ;

R.sub.3 is C.sub.1 to C.sub.6 linear or branched alkyl; R.sub.5 and R.sub.6 are hydrogen;

y is 0, 1, or 2; x is 1 or 2; m is 0, 1, 2, or 3; and the above aryl groups and the aryl moieties of the above alkylaryl groups are independently selected from phenyl and substituted phenyl, wherein said substituted phenyl may be substituted with one to three groups selected from C.sub.1 to C.sub.4 alkyl, halogen, hydroxy, cyano, carboxamido, nitro, and C.sub.1 to C.sub.4 alkoxy, or the pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.

2. The R enantiomer of a compound according to claim 1.

3. A compound according to claim 1 wherein R.sub.1 is hydrogen; R.sub.2 is --(CH.sub.2).sub.m --SO.sub.2 NHR.sub.5 ; R.sub.3 is methyl; and m and R.sub.5 are as defined in claim 1.

4. A compound according to claim 1, wherein said compound is

(R)-5-(2 -aminosulphonylethyl)-3-(N-methylpyrrolidin-2-ylmethyl)-1H-indole.

5. A pharmaceutical composition for treating a condition selected from hypertension, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obesity, drug abuse, cluster headache, migraine, pain, and chronic paroxysmal hemicrania and headache associated with vascular disorders comprising an amount of a compound according to claim 1 effective in treating such condition and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

6. A pharmaceutical composition for treating disorders arising from deficient serotonergic neurotransmission comprising an amount of a compound according to claim 1 effective in treating such a disorder and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

7. A method for treating a condition selected from hypertension, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obesity, drug abuse, cluster headache, migraine, pain and chronic paroxysmal hemicrania and headache associated with vascular disorders comprising administering to a mammal requiring such treatment an amount of a compound according to claim 1 effective in treating such condition.

8. A method for treating disorders arising from deficient serotonergic neurotransmission comprising administering to a mammal requiring such treatment an amount of a compound according to claim 1 effective in treating such a disorder.
