RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application is a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 14/181,041, filed on Feb. 14, 2014, which was a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/828,534, filed on Mar. 14, 2013, which was a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/628,742, filed on Sep. 27, 2012. The entire contents of these applications are incorporated herein by reference.

TECHNICAL FIELD

This disclosure relates to solid forms of (2S,3S,5R)-3-((1H-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)methyl)-3-methyl-7-oxo-4-thia-1-azabicyclo[3.2.0]heptane-2-carboxylic acid 4,4-dioxide (tazobactam), and related compositions and methods.

BACKGROUND

The crystal state of a compound may be important when the compound is used for pharmaceutical purposes. Compared with an amorphous solid, the solid physical properties of a crystalline compound may change, which may affect its suitability for pharmaceutical use. For example, a particular crystalline compound may overcome the disadvantage of other solid forms of the compound that readily absorb moisture (e.g., high hygroscopicity). For an ionic drug substance, high hygroscopicity may diminish the drug product's stability profile by a host of mechanisms, as the drug substance may have a propensity to absorb water. Water that is absorbed from the environment (packaging materials, exposure to air, or in the case of formulated products, from other materials), may lead to degradation products and/or impurities in a drug product or add to the cost of manufacturing the drug product with acceptably low levels of water.

One compound that can be obtained in amorphous or various crystalline salt forms is (2S,3S,5R)-3-((1H-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)methyl)-3-methyl-7-oxo-4-thia-1-azabicyclo[3.2.0]heptane-2-carboxylic acid 4,4-dioxide, or tazobactam. There is a need for solid forms of tazobactam with reduced hygroscopicity for use in drug substance and drug product development.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Tazobactam arginine may occur in an amorphous solid form or in a crystalline solid form. Crystalline solid forms of tazobactam arginine may exist in one or more unique polymorph forms, which may additionally comprise one or more equivalents of water or solvent (i.e., hydrates or solvates, respectively).

Tazobactam arginine is the salt of the conjugate base of tazobactam and the conjugate acid of (S)-2-amino-5-guanidinopentanoic acid (L-arginine) in a 1:1 ratio, as represented by the structure below.

Accordingly, provided herein is crystalline tazobactam arginine, and hydrates and solvates thereof. In particular, provided herein is crystalline tazobactam arginine polymorph Ia, also referred to herein as “polymorph Ia” or “tazobactam arginine polymorph Ia”, and crystalline tazobactam arginine polymorph Ib, also referred to herein as “polymorph Ib” or “tazobactam arginine polymorph Ib”.

Polymorphism

The ability of a substance to exist in more than one crystal form is defined as polymorphism; the different crystal forms of a particular substance are referred to as “polymorphs.” In general, polymorphism is affected by the ability of a molecule of a substance to change its conformation or to form different intermolecular or intra-molecular interactions, particularly hydrogen bonds, which is reflected in different atom arrangements in the crystal lattices of different polymorphs. In contrast, the overall external form of a substance is known as “morphology,” which refers to the external shape of the crystal and the planes present, without reference to the internal structure. Crystals can display different morphology based on different conditions, such as, for example, growth rate, stirring, and the presence of impurities.

The different polymorphs of a substance can possess different energies of the crystal lattice and, thus, in solid state they can show different physical properties such as form, density, melting point, color, stability, solubility, dissolution rate, etc., which can, in turn, affect the stability, dissolution rate and/or bioavailability of a given polymorph and its suitability for use as a pharmaceutical and in pharmaceutical compositions.

Access to different polymorphs of tazobactam arginine is desirable for other reasons as well. One such reason is that different polymorphs of a compound (e.g., tazobactam arginine) can incorporate different impurities, or chemical residues, upon crystallization. Certain polymorphs incorporate very little, or no, chemical residues. Accordingly, the formation of certain polymorph forms of a compound may result in purification of the compound.

Tazobactam arginine polymorph Ia exhibits low hygroscopicity relative to amorphous tazobactam arginine and amorphous tazobactam sodium. Low hygroscopicity of a solid compound is desirable for several reasons. For example, compounds that are highly hygroscopic may be chemically unstable, or unsuitable for formulating as a drug product due to changes of the drug form's physical characteristics (e.g., bulk density, dissolution rate, etc.) that can occur if it is stored in settings with varying relative humidity. Also, hygroscopicity can impact large-scale manufacturing and handling of a compound. For example, it may be difficult to determine the true weight of a hygroscopic active agent when preparing a pharmaceutical composition comprising that agent.

Pharmaceutical compositions comprising compounds of the invention can be identified by comparison of the compositions' X-ray powder diffraction patterns to an X-ray powder diffraction pattern of a compound of the invention. It will be appreciated that pharmaceutical compositions comprising a compound of the invention may exhibit non-identical X-ray powder diffraction patterns as compared to an X-ray powder diffraction pattern of a pure compound of the invention.

The term “pharmaceutical composition” includes preparations suitable for administration to mammals, e.g., humans. When the compounds of the present invention are administered as pharmaceuticals to mammals, e.g., humans, they can be given per se or as a pharmaceutical composition containing, for example, 0.1% to 99.9% (more preferably, 0.5 to 90%) of active ingredient in combination with a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

The pharmaceutical compositions described herein can be formulated to have any concentration desired (i.e., any concentration of crystalline tazobactam arginine, or a hydrate or solvate thereof, and any concentration of a beta-lactam compound). In some embodiments, the composition is formulated such that it comprises at least a therapeutically effective amount of both compounds (i.e., a therapeutically effective amount of the combination of crystalline tazobactam arginine, or a hydrate or solvate thereof, and the beta-lactam compound). In some embodiments, the composition is formulated such that it would not cause one or more unwanted side effects.

The compounds of the invention (i.e., polymorphs, hydrates and solvates of tazobactam arginine) can be combined with a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier according to conventional pharmaceutical compounding techniques. As used herein, “pharmaceutically acceptable carrier” may include any and all solvents, diluents, or other liquid vehicle, dispersion or suspension aids, surface active agents, isotonic agents, thickening or emulsifying agents, preservatives, solid binders, lubricants and the like, as suited to the particular dosage form desired. Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences, Eighteenth Edition, A. R. Gennaro (Mack Publishing Co., Easton, Pa., 1990) discloses various carriers used in formulating pharmaceutical compositions and known techniques for the preparation thereof. Except insofar as any conventional carrier medium is incompatible with the compounds such as by producing any undesirable biological effect or otherwise interacting in a deleterious manner with any other component(s) of the pharmaceutical composition, its use is contemplated to be within the scope of this invention. Some examples of materials which can serve as pharmaceutically acceptable carriers include, but are not limited to, sugars such as lactose, glucose and sucrose; starches such as corn starch and potato starch; cellulose and its derivatives such as sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, ethyl cellulose and cellulose acetate; powdered tragacanth; malt; gelatine; talc; excipients such as cocoa butter and suppository waxes; oils such as peanut oil, cottonseed oil; safflower oil, sesame oil; olive oil; corn oil and soybean oil; glycols; such as propylene glycol; esters such as ethyl oleate and ethyl laurate; agar; buffering agents such as magnesium hydroxide and aluminum hydroxide; alginic acid; pyrogen free water; isotonic saline (“normal saline”); Ringer's solution; ethyl alcohol, and phosphate buffer solutions, as well as other non-toxic compatible lubricants such as sodium lauryl sulfate and magnesium stearate, as well as coloring agents, releasing agents, coating agents, sweetening, flavoring and perfuming agents, trehalose, or reducing or non-reducing sugars, 5% dextrose (D5W), preservatives and antioxidants can also be present in the composition, according to the judgment of the formulator.

Furthermore, the carrier may take a wide variety of forms depending on the form of the preparation desired for administration, e.g. oral, nasal, rectal, vaginal, parenteral (including intravenous injections or infusions). In preparing compositions for oral dosage form any of the usual pharmaceutical media may be employed. Usual pharmaceutical media include, for example, water, glycols, oils, alcohols, flavoring agents, preservatives, coloring agents, and the like in the case of oral liquid preparations (such as for example, suspensions, solutions, emulsions and elixirs); aerosols; or carriers such as starches, sugars, microcrystalline cellulose, diluents, granulating agents, lubricants, binders, disintegrating agents and the like, in the case of oral solid preparations (such as for example, powders, capsules, and tablets).

Wetting agents, emulsifiers and lubricants, such as sodium lauryl sulfate and magnesium stearate, as well as coloring agents, release agents, coating agents, sweetening, flavoring and perfuming agents, preservatives and antioxidants can also be present in the compositions.

Pharmaceutical compositions include those suitable for oral, sublingual, nasal rectal, vaginal, topical, buccal and parenteral (including subcutaneous, intramuscular, and intravenous) administration, although the most suitable route will depend on the nature and severity of the condition being treated. The compositions may be conveniently presented in unit dosage form, and prepared by any of the methods well known in the art of pharmacy. In certain embodiments, the pharmaceutical composition is formulated for oral administration in the form of a pill, capsule, lozenge or tablet. In other embodiments, the pharmaceutical composition is in the form of a suspension.

The pharmaceutical compositions disclosed herein can be prepared via lyophilization. As is known to those skilled in the art, lyophilization is a process of drying in which water is sublimed from a frozen solution of one or more solutes. Specific methods of lyophilization are described in Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chapter 84, page 1565, Eighteenth Edition, A. R. Gennaro, (Mack Publishing Co., Easton, Pa., 1990).

In a preferred embodiment, pharmaceutical compositions comprising crystalline tazobactam arginine (e.g., polymorph Ia) and one or more beta-lactam compounds are formulated for parenteral administration. In another preferred embodiment, pharmaceutical compositions comprising tazobactam arginine and one or more beta-lactam compounds are formulated for oral administration.

Methods of Treatment

Tazobactam arginine inhibits or decreases the activity of beta-lactamases (e.g., bacterial beta-lactamases), and can be combined with beta-lactam compounds (e.g., antibiotics), thereby broadening the spectrum of the beta-lactam compound and increasing the beta-lactam compound's efficacy against organisms that produce beta-lactamase. A compound or a composition possesses efficacy against an organism if it kills or weakens the organism, or inhibits or prevents reproduction the organism.

As used herein, “treating”, “treat” or “treatment” describes the management and care of a patient for the purpose of combating a disease, condition, or disorder and includes the administration of a pharmaceutical composition of the present invention to alleviate the symptoms or complications of a disease, condition or disorder, or to eliminate the disease, condition or disorder. The term “treat” can also include treatment of a cell in vitro or an animal model.

By a “therapeutically effective amount” of a compound of the invention is meant a sufficient amount of the compound to treat the disorder (e.g., bacterial infection). The specific therapeutically effective amount that is required for the treatment of any particular patient or organism (e.g., a mammal) will depend upon a variety of factors including the disorder being treated and the severity of the disorder; the activity of the specific compound or composition employed; the specific composition employed; the age, body weight, general health, sex and diet of the patient; the time of administration, route of administration, and rate of excretion of the specific compound employed; the duration of the treatment; drugs used in combination or coincidental with the specific compound employed; and like factors well known in the medical arts (see, for example, Goodman and Gilman's, “The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics”, Tenth Edition, A. Gilman, J. Hardman and L. Limbird, eds., McGraw-Hill Press, 155-173, 2001, which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety). The therapeutically effective amount for a given situation can be readily determined by routine experimentation and is within the skill and judgment of the ordinary clinician.

The solution was lyophilized overnight to yield tazobactam arginine amorphous as an off-white solid (8.0 g). The XRPD spectrum of the tazobactam arginine amorphous is depicted in FIG. 5.

Example 2

Preparation of Tazobactam Arginine Crystalline Polymorph Ia

Tazobactam arginine amorphous (1.00 g) was dissolved in 10.0 mL of deionized water. 30 mL of acetone was added to the aqueous solution by drop-wise addition. The mixture was allowed to sit overnight at ambient temperature, resulting in white fine needles. After filtration and vacuum drying for 4 hours, tazobactam arginine polymorph Ia (516 mg) was obtained. The XRPD spectrum of the tazobactam arginine polymorph Ia is depicted in FIG. 1.

Example 3

Preparation of Tazobactam Arginine Crystalline Polymorph Ia

L-arginine (1.16 g) was charged to the reactor and dissolved in a mixture of deionized water-acetone (1:1, v/v, 40 mL) by mechanically stirring at 300 rpm, 30° C. over 5 min. Tazobactam acid (2.00 g) was then added to the above solution over 2 min with the observed pH change from 10.5±0.5 to 5.9±0.5. After adding 34.5 mL of acetone over 30 min at 30° C., crystallization started, then the suspension was cooled down to 15° C. at 0.1° C./min and kept stirring at 15° C. for additional 1.5 hr. White fine needle crystals were filtered out and vacuum dried for 2 hours at 35° C. to obtain 2.59 g (82% yield) of tazobactam arginine polymorph Ia.

Example 4

Preparation of Tazobactam Arginine Crystalline Polymorph Ia—20 g Scale

  • 1) 20 g of tazobactam acid and 1 equivalent of L-arginine was placed into a jacketed, glass, 1 liter laboratory reactor with an overhead stirrer.
  • 2) 5 volumes (relative to tazobactam acid weight) of ambient temperature (ca. 22° C.) water was added to the reactor and stirred at 480 rpm. The reactor temperature was maintained between 23-27° C. with a target temperature of 25° C. The reaction was stirred for 10-15 minutes in order to obtain complete dissolution. Stirring at 480 rpm was maintained throughout the reaction.
  • 3) 0.75 vol. ambient temperature deionised water was added to the reactor. This step was included to account for the sterile filtration and washing step required in the process.
  • 4) 8 volumes (160 ml) of acetone was added over 10 minutes.
  • 5) The reaction mixture was aged for 15 minutes, at which point precipitation of tazobactam arginine begins.
  • 6) A controlled cool was started from 25° C. down to 10° C. over 1.5 hours at a rate of 10° C./hour.
  • 7) After reaching 10° C., 18 volumes of acetone was added over two hours (i.e., total acetone added throughout reaction was 26 volumes).
  • 8) After the acetone addition, the reaction mixture was allowed to age for 1 hour.
  • 9) The reaction mixture was filtered and washed with 5 volumes of cold acetone (ca. 4° C.).
  • 10) The resulting solid was dried at ambient (ca. 22° C.) under vacuum and nitrogen bleed for 24 hours with regular mixing of the solid, to furnish polymorph Ia in 90% yield. The XRPD spectrum of the tazobactam arginine polymorph Ia is depicted in FIG. 6.

The 1H-NMR spectrum (FIG. 7) of polymorph Ia indicates a stoichiometry of 1:1 tazobactam acid:arginine.

  • 2) 5 volumes (ca. 100 ml) of water (relative to tazobactam acid weight) was added to the reactor and stirred at 300 rpm (25° C.) for 10-15 minutes in order to obtain complete dissolution.
  • 3) A further 0.75 vol water was then added to account for washing in sterile filtration step.
  • 4) 6 volumes (120 ml) of ispopropanol was added over ca. 15 minutes in order to initiate precipitation.
  • 5) The suspension was then aged for 15 minutes before cooling down to 10° C. over 1.5 hours at a rate of 10° C./hour.
  • 6) After reaching 10° C., isopropanol addition was started at a rate of 185 ml/hour, adding a further 16 volumes (i.e., total isopropanol added throughout reaction was 24 volumes).
  • 7) The reaction was then allowed to age for 1 hour.
  • 8) The suspension was filtered and washed with 5 volumes of cold isopropanol (ca. 4° C.).
  • 9) The resulting solid was then dried at ambient under vacuum and nitrogen bleed for 24 hours with regular mixing of the solids to yield tazobactam arginine crystalline polymorph Ia.

Hygroscopicity Experiments

Analysis by DVS was performed on a VTI SGA-100 water vapor sorption analyser using approximately 18-23 mg of each sample. Each sample was pre-dried at 60° C. for a maximum of 1 hour and then analyzed at 25° C. in 10% relative humidity (RH) steps from 5-95% (adsorption) and then 90-10% RH (desorption). The sample was equilibrated to each humidity level for a maximum of 3 hours or until constant weight was attained. Equilibrium criteria were set at less than 0.0050% weight change within 5 minutes.

(6a) Tazobactam arginine amorphous exhibited approximately 10.7% weight increase at 95% relative humidity (RH). See FIG. 8.

(6b) Tazobactam arginine polymorph Ia exhibited approximately 0.2% weight increase at 95% RH. See FIG. 9.

(6c) Amorphous tazobactam sodium exhibited approximately 80% weight increase at 95% RH. See FIG. 10.

Solvent Solubility Screen

The solvent solubility screen was carried out using a solvent addition technique. For each of 25 solvent systems, the following procedure was used: (1) about 20 mg of crystalline tazobactam arginine was placed into a vial; (2) solvent was added to the vial in 5 volume aliquots (100 μL) until complete dissolution, or 100 volumes, had been added; (3) between additions, the sample was heated to about 50° C. in order to determine the approximate solubility at an elevated temperature; (4) if 100 volumes was reached and complete dissolution was not observed, solubility was calculated to be below that point. Results of the solvent solubility screen are shown in Table 3.

Instrumentation and Methods

  • I. X-Ray Powder Diffraction (XRPD) experiments were performed using a Bruker D8 Advance X-ray powder diffractometer utilizing a zero return silicon plate. A suitable amount of sample was placed directly on the sample holder, pressed flat to smooth, and analyzed from 3°-40° 20 using Bragg-Brentano optics. A step size of 0.01° and a step time of 0.3 sec/step were utilized. Analysis was started immediately following sample preparation.
  • II. Differential Scanning calorimetry (DSC) experiments were performed on a TA Instruments Q100 instrument. A temperature range of 40° C. to 300° C. with a ramp rate of 10° C./minute was utilized. Approximately 1.0 mg of sample was weighed into a tared aluminum sample pan and sealed hermetically. A small hole was pushed into the cover of the sample pan to allow for pressure release.
  • III. Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) experiments were performed on a TA Instruments 5000 instrument from 20 to 300° C. with a heating rate of 10° C./minute for all samples.
