The present invention also provides processes for preparing compounds of formula (I).

The quaternary ammonium derivatives of general Formula I, may be prepared by reaction of an alkylating agent of general Formula II with compounds of general Formula III. In Formulas I, II and III, R1, R2, R3, ©, A, X, B, n, m and p are as defined above.

This alkylation reaction may be carried out by two different experimental procedures, a) and b) which are described below. In particular method b) provides a new experimental process, using solid phase extraction methodologies, that allows the parallel preparation of several compounds. Methods a) and b) are described in the experimental section. Compounds of general Formula II which are not commercially available have been prepared by synthesis according to standard methods. For example, compounds wherein n=0 and A=—O—, —S— or —NR6 1 wherein R6 is as defined above, were obtained by reaction of the corresponding aromatic derivative or its potassium salt with an alkylating agent of general formula Y—(CH2)m-X, wherein X may be a halogen and Y may be a halogen or a sulphonate ester. In other examples, compounds of general Formula II, where n>=1 were synthesised from the corresponding alcohol derivative of general Formula IV by known methods.

Compounds of general Formula III may be prepared by three different methods c, d and e illustrated in the following scheme and detailed in the experimental section.

Some compounds of general formula III where B is a group of formula i), R8 and R9 are as described above and R10 is a hydroxy group, may also be prepared from the glyoxalate esters of general formula VII by reaction with the corresponding organometallic derivative.

Compounds of general formula VII may be prepared from the corresponding glyoxylic acids following the standard methods c, d and e described above and detailed in the experimental section. The glyoxalate derivatives of formula VII where R8 is a 2-thienyl or 2-furyl group have not been described before.

The following compounds are examples of compounds of general formula III and VII which have not been described before:

  • 9-Methyl-9[H]-fluorene-9-carboxylic acid 1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-3(R)-yl ester (intermediate I-1c);
  • 9-Methyl-9[H]-xanthene-9-carboxylic acid 1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-3(R)-yl ester (intermediate I-1d);

  • 4-hydroxy-1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]octane, described in Grob, C. A. et. al. Helv. Chim. Acta (1958), 41, 1184-1190

The following examples are intended to illustrate, but not to limit, the experimental procedures that have been described above.

The structures of the prepared compounds were confirmed by 1H-NMR and MS. The NMR were recorded using a Varian 300 MHz instrument and chemical shifts are expressed as parts per million (δ) from the internal reference tetramethyl silane. Their purity was determined by HPLC, using reverse phase chromatrography on a Waters instrument, with values greater than 95% being obtained. Molecular ions were obtained by electrospray ionization mass spectometry on a Hewlett Packard instrument.

Pharmacological Action

The following examples demonstrate the excellent pharmacological activities of the compounds of the present invention. The results on human muscarinic receptors binding and in the test on bronchospasm in guinea pig, were obtained as described below.

Human Muscarinic Receptor Studies.

The binding of [3H]-NMS to human muscarinic receptors was performed according to Waelbroek et al (1990) (1). Assays were carried out at 25° C. Membrane preparations from stably transfected chinese hamster ovary-K1 cells (CHO) expressing the genes for the human muscarinic receptors Hm3 were used.

For determination of IC50, membrane preparations were suspended in DPBS to a final concentration of 89 μg/ml for the Hm3 subtype. The membrane suspension was incubated with the tritiated compound for 60 min. After incubation the membrane fraction was separated by filtration and the bound radioactivity determined. Non specific binding was determined by addition of 10−4 M atropine. At least six concentrations were assayed in duplicate to generate individual displacement curves.

The Examples 160 to 164 illustrate pharmaceutical compositions according to the present invention and procedure for their preparation.

EXAMPLE 160

Preparation of a pharmaceutical composition: tablets
Formulation:
Compound of the present invention 5.0 mg
Lactose 113.6 mg
Microcrystalline cellulose 28.4 mg
Light silicic anhydride 1.5 mg
Magnesium stearate 1.5 mg

Using a mixer machine, 15 g of the compound of the present invention was mixed with 340.8 g of lactose and 85.2 g of microcrystalline cellulose. The mixture was subjected to compression moulding using a roller compactor to give a flake-like compressed material. The flake-like compressed material was pulverized using a hammer mill, and the pulverized material was screened through a 20 mesh screen. A 4.5 g portion of light silicic anhydride and 4.5 g of magnesium stearate were added to the screened material and mixed. The mixer product was subjected to a tablets making machine equipped with a die/punch system of 7.5 mm in diameter, thereby obtaining 3,000 tablets each having 150 mg in weight.

EXAMPLE 161

Preparation of a pharmaceutical composition: tablets coated
Formulation:
Compound of the present invention 5.0 mg
Lactose 95.2 mg
Corn starch 40.8 mg
Polyvinylpyrrolidone K25 7.5 mg
Magnesium stearate 1.5 mg
Hydroxypropylcellulose 2.3 mg
Polyethylene glycol 6000 0.4 mg
Titanium dioxide 1.1 mg
Purified talc 0.7 mg

Using a fluidized bed granulating machine, 15 g of the compound of the present invention was mixed with 285.6 g of lactose and 122.4 g of corn starch. Separately, 22.5 g of polyinylpyrrolidone was dissolved in 127.5 g of water to prepare a binding solution. Using a fluidized bed granulating machine, the binding solution was sprayed on the above mixture to give granulates. A 4.5 g portion of magnesium stearate was added to the obtained granulates and mixed. The obtained mixture was subjected to a tablet making machine equipped with a die/punch biconcave system of 6.5 mm in diameter, thereby obtaining 3,000 tablets, each having 150 mg in weight.

Separately, a coating solution was prepared by suspending 6.9 g of hydroxypropylmethylcellulose 2910, 1.2 g of polyethylene glycol 6000, 3.3 g of titanium dioxide and 2.1 g of purified talc in 72.6 g of water. Using a High Coated, the 3,000 tablets prepared above were coated with the coating solution to give film-coated tablets, each having 154.5 mg in weight.

EXAMPLE 162

Preparation of a pharmaceutical composition: liquid inhalant
Formulation:
Compound of the present invention 400 Φg
Physiological saline 1 ml

A 40 mg portion of the compound of the present invention was dissolved in 90 ml of physiological saline, and the solution was adjusted to a total volume of 100 ml with the same saline solution, dispensed in 1 ml portions into 1 ml capacity ampoule and then sterilized at 1151 for 30 minutes to give liquid inhalant.

EXAMPLE 163

Preparation of a pharmaceutical composition: powder inhalant
Formulation:
Compound of the present invention 200 Φg
Lactose 4,000 Φg

A 20 g portion of the compound of the present invention was uniformly mixed with 400 g of lactose, and a 200 mg portion of the mixture was packed in a powder inhaler for exclusive use to produce a powder inhalant.

EXAMPLE 164

Preparation of a pharmaceutical composition: inhalation aerosol.
Formulation:
Compound of the present invention 200 Φg
Dehydrated (Absolute) ethyl alcohol USP 8,400 Φg
1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (HFC-134A) 46,810 Φg

The active ingredient concentrate is prepared by dissolving 0.0480 g of the compound of the present invention in 2.0160 g of ethyl alcohol. The concentrate is added to an appropriate filling apparatus. The active ingredient concentrate is dispensed into aerosol container, the headspace of the container is purged with Nitrogen or HFC-134A vapor (purging ingredients should not contain more than 1 ppm oxygen) and is sealed with valve. 11.2344 g of HFC-134A propellant is then pressure filled into the sealed container.
