Title: 24-hydroxyvitamin D, analogs and uses thereof
Abstract:The invention provides 24-hydroxyvitamin D compounds and methods for their use in the treatment and prophylaxis of hyperparathyroidism and hyperproliferative diseases, and in the modulation of the immune and inflammatory responses as well as the treatment of bone depletive disorders.
Inventor(s): Bishop; Charles W. (Madison, WI), Knutson; Joyce C. (Madison, WI), Strugnell; Stephen (Madison, WI)
Assignee: Bone Care International, Inc. (Madison, WI)
Filing Date:May 29, 1998
Application Number:09/086,969
Claims:1. A method of achieving an effect in a patient comprising administering an effective amount of a vitamin D compound which is a 24-hydroxyvitamin D wherein the effect is treating or preventing bone loss or bone mineral content, hyperparathyroidism, hyperproliferation, or modulating the immune and inflammatory responses, and wherein said 24-hydroxyvitamin D is a compound of formula (I): ##STR9##

wherein Z is a side chain of formula IIC, IID, or IIE: ##STR10##

wherein a dotted line along the side chain represents an optional additional C--C bond; q is zero; R.sup.3 is hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; R.sup.4 and R.sup.7 are independently lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; A is carbon, oxygen, sulfur or nitrogen; r is 1 and s is zero when A is nitrogen; r and s are 1 when A is carbon; r and s are zero when A is sulfur or oxygen; R.sup.9 and R.sup.10 are independently hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower alkenyl, lower fluoroalkyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; n is 1; Y is a methylene group if Y is double bonded to the A-ring or a methyl group or hydrogen if Y is single bonded; and X is hydrogen, lower alkyl or lower fluoroalkyl.

2. The method of claim 1 wherein Z is a side chain of formula (IIC).

3. The method of claim 1 wherein Z is a side chain of formula (IID).

4. The method of claim 1 wherein Z is a side chain of formula (IIE).

5. The method of claim 4 wherein said 24-hydroxyvitamin D compound is 24-OH-25-ene-D.sub.2.

6. A 24-hydroxyvitamin D compound which is a compound of formula (I): ##STR11##

wherein Y is a methylene group if Y is double bonded to the A-ring or a methyl group or hydrogen if Y is single bonded; X is hydrogen, lower alkyl or lower fluoroalkyl; and Z is a side chain of formula (IIC): ##STR12##

wherein n is 1; R.sup.3 is hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; R.sup.4 and R.sup.7 are independently lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; A is carbon, oxygen, sulfur or nitrogen; r is 1 and s is zero when A is nitrogen; r and s are 1 when A is carbon; r and s are zero when A is sulfur or oxygen; and R.sup.9 and R.sup.10 are independently hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower alkenyl, lower fluoroalkyl or lower fluoroalkenyl.

7. A 24-hydroxyvitamin D compound which is a compound of formula (I): ##STR13##

wherein Y is a methylene group if Y is double bonded to the A-ring or a methyl group or hydrogen if Y is single bonded; X is hydrogen, lower alkyl or lower fluoroalkyl; and Z is a side chain of formula (IIE): ##STR14##

wherein a dotted line along the side chain represents an optional additional C--C bond; q is zero; R.sup.3 is hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; R.sup.4 and R.sup.7 are independently lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; A is carbon, oxygen, sulfur or nitrogen; r is 1 and s is zero when A is nitrogen; r and s are 1 when A is carbon; r and s are zero when A is sulfur or oxygen; and R.sup.9 and R.sup.10 are independently hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower alkenyl, lower fluoroalkyl or lower fluoroalkenyl.

8. A 24-hydroxyprevitamin D which is a compound of formula (III): ##STR15##

wherein Y is a methyl group or hydrogen; X is hydrogen, lower alkyl or lower fluoroalkyl; and Z is a side chain of formula (IIC): ##STR16##

wherein n is an integer which is 1; R.sup.3 is hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl, R.sup.4 and R.sup.7 are independently lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; A is carbon, oxygen, sulfur or nitrogen; r is 1 and s is zero when A is nitrogen; r and s are 1 when A is carbon; r and s are zero when A is sulfur or oxygen; R.sup.9 and R.sup.10 are independently hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower alkenyl, lower fluoroalkyl or lower fluoroalkenyl.

9. A 24-hydroxyprevitamin D which is a compound of formula (III): ##STR17##

wherein Y is a methyl group or hydrogen; X is hydrogen, lower alkyl or lower fluoroalkyl; and Z is a side chain of formula (IIE): ##STR18##

wherein a dotted line along the side chain represents an optional additional C--C bond; q is zero or an integer which is 1; R.sup.3 is hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; R.sup.4 and R.sup.7 are independently lower alkyl, lower fluoroalkyl, lower alkenyl or lower fluoroalkenyl; A is carbon, oxygen, sulfur or nitrogen; r is 1 and s is zero when A is nitrogen; r and s are 1 when A is carbon; r and s are zero when A is sulfur or oxygen; R.sup.9 and R.sup.10 are independently hydrogen, lower alkyl, lower alkenyl, lower fluoroalkyl or lower fluoroalkenyl.

10. The method of claim 1 wherein said compound is administered in combination with a bone agent, a cytotoxic agent, an immune response regulating agent, an antiinflammatory agent or combinations thereof.

11. The method of claim 10 wherein said bone agent is other vitamin D compounds, conjugated estrogens, sodium fluorides, biphosphonates, cobalamin, calcium receptor agonists, pertussin toxin, boron or DHEA.

12. The compound of claim 8 in a pharmaceutical composition including a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier, adjuvant or vehicle, wherein the composition is further combined with effective amounts of a bone agent, a cytotoxic agent, an immune response regulating agent, an antiinflammatory agent or combinations thereof.
