We have developed a series of cyclic amine-containing benzimidazole carboxamide poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase (PARP) inhibitors, with good PARP-1 enzyme potency, as well as cellular potency. These efforts led to the identification of a lead preclinical candidate, 10b, 2-(1-propylpiperidin-4-yl)-1H-benzimidazole-4-carboxamide (A-620223). 10b displayed very good potency against both the PARP-1 enzyme with a K(i) of 8nM and in a whole cell assay with an EC(50) of 3nM. 10b is aqueous soluble, orally bioavailable across multiple species, and demonstrated good in vivo efficacy in a B16F10 subcutaneous murine melanoma model in combination with temozolomide (TMZ) and in an MX-1 breast xenograph model in combination with cisplatin.
