Title:High purity lipopeptides
Abstract: The invention discloses highly purified daptomycin and to pharmaceutical compositions comprising this compound. The invention discloses a method of purifying daptomycin comprising the sequential steps of anion exchange chromatography, hydrophobic interaction chromatography and anion exchange chromatography. The invention also discloses a method of purifying daptomycin by modified buffer enhanced anion exchange chromatography. The invention also discloses an improved method for producing daptomycin by fermentation of Streptomyces roseosporus. The invention also discloses high pressure liquid chromatography methods for analysis of daptomycin purity. The invention also discloses lipopeptide micelles and methods of making the micelles. The invention also discloses methods of using lipopeptide micelles for purifying lipopeptide antibiotics, such as daptomycin. The invention also discloses using lipopeptide micelles therapeutically.

Assignee: Cubist Pharmaceuticals LLC (Lucerne, CH)
Filing Date:Sep 02, 2014
Application Number:14/475,319
Claims:1. A pharmaceutical composition comprising daptomycin of greater than or about 93% purity relative to impurities 1-14 defined by peaks 1-14 shown in FIG. 12, the daptomycin being obtained by a process comprising the step of forming an aggregate comprising daptomycin, wherein the daptomycin is free of pyrogen, and wherein the composition: optionally comprises a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier or excipient; and comprises daptomycin micelles when reconstituted in at least one solution.

2. The composition of claim 1, wherein the daptomycin is greater than 93% pure.

3. The composition of claim 1, wherein the daptomycin is greater than 95% pure.

4. The composition of claim 1, wherein the daptomycin is free of one to five impurities selected from impurities 1 to 14 defined by peaks 1-14 shown in FIG. 12.

5. The composition of claim 1, wherein at least one of impurities 2, 4, 5, 6, and 12 is present in an amount of no more than 0.1%.

6. The composition of claim 1, wherein impurity 3 is present in an amount of no more than 0.5%.

7. The composition of claim 1, wherein the daptomycin is obtained by a process comprising: a) subjecting a daptomycin solution to conditions forming a daptomycin aggregate; b) separating the daptomycin aggregate from low molecular weight contaminants; and c) subjecting the daptomycin aggregate to conditions in which the daptomycin aggregate dissociates into daptomycin monomers.

8. The composition of claim 7, wherein the daptomycin aggregate of step b) is separated from the low molecular weight contaminants by a size selection technique chosen from ultrafiltration and size exclusion chromatography.

9. The composition of claim 8, further comprising separating the daptomycin monomers obtained from step c) from high molecular weight contaminants.

10. The composition of claim 9, wherein the daptomycin monomers are separated from the high molecular weight contaminants by a size selection technique chosen from ultrafiltration and size exclusion chromatography.

11. The composition of claim 7, wherein the aggregate is a micelle.

12. The composition of claim 10, wherein the daptomycin is free of one to five impurities selected from impurities 1 to 14 defined by peaks 1-14 shown in FIG. 12.

13. The composition of claim 10, wherein at least one of impurities 2, 4, 5, 6, and 12 is present in an amount of no more than 0.1%.

14. The composition of claim 12, wherein impurity 3 is present in an amount of no more than 0.5%.

15. A pharmaceutical composition comprising daptomycin of greater than or about 93% purity relative to impurities 1-14 defined by peaks 1-14 shown in FIG. 12, the daptomycin being obtained by a process comprising the steps of forming a daptomycin aggregate, converting the daptomycin aggregate to monomers, and one or more steps selected from the group consisting of anion exchange chromatography and hydrophobic interaction chromatography, wherein the daptomycin is free of pyrogen, and wherein the composition: optionally comprises a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier or excipient; and comprises daptomycin micelles when reconstituted in at least one solution.

16. The composition of claim 15, wherein the daptomycin is greater than 93% pure.

17. The composition of claim 15, wherein the daptomycin is greater than 95% sure.

18. The composition of claim 15, wherein the daptomycin is free of one to five impurities selected from impurities 1 to 14 defined by peaks 1-14 shown in FIG. 12.

19. The composition of claim 15, wherein at least one of impurities 2, 4, 5, 6, and 12 is present in an amount of no more than 0.1%.

20. The composition of claim 15, wherein impurity 3 is present in an amount of no more than 0.5%.

21. A pharmaceutical composition comprising daptomycin of greater than or about 93% purity relative to impurities 1-14 defined by peaks 1-14 shown in FIG. 12, wherein the daptomycin is free of pyrogen, and wherein the composition: optionally comprises a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier or excipient; and comprises daptomycin micelles when reconstituted in at least one solution.

22. The composition of claim 21, wherein the daptomycin is greater than 93% pure.

23. The composition of claim 21, wherein the daptomycin is greater than 95% pure.

24. The composition of claim 21, wherein the daptomycin is free of one to five impurities selected from impurities 1 to 14 defined by peaks 1-14 shown in FIG. 12.

25. The composition of claim 21, wherein at least one of impurities 2, 4, 5, 6, and 12 is present in an amount of no more than 0.1%.

26. The composition of claim 21, wherein impurity 3 is present in an amount of no more than 0.5%.

27. A method for treating a bacterial infection in a human patient in need thereof, comprising administering a therapeutically effective amount of the pharmaceutical composition of claim 11.

28. A method for treating a bacterial infection in a human patient in need thereof, comprising administering a therapeutically effective amount of the pharmaceutical composition of claim 15.

29. A method for treating a bacterial infection in a human patient in need thereof, comprising administering a therapeutically effective amount of the pharmaceutical composition of claim 21.

30. The composition of claim 1, wherein the daptomycin is greater than 97% pure.
