  • Patent number: 9765103
    Abstract: The present invention relates to using a versatile synthetic approach to generate a new class of ester, amido, or carbamate prodrugs of highly potent, but systemically too toxic, platinum-acridine anticancer agents. The new hybrids contain a hydroxyl group, which has been masked with a cleavable lipophilic acyl moiety. Both butanoic (butyric) and bulkier 2-propanepentanoic (valproic) esters were introduced to these compounds. The goal of this design was to improve the drug-like properties of the pharmacophore (e. g., log D) without compromising its DNA-mediated cell kill potential. Two distinct pathways by which the target compounds undergo effective ester hydrolysis, the proposed activating step, have been confirmed: platinum-mediated, self-immolative ester cleavage in a low-chloride environment (LC-ESMS, NMR spectroscopy) and enzymatic cleavage by human carboxylesterase-2 (hCES-2) (LC-ESMS).
