A novel central nervous system (CNS) selective neurokinin-1 (NK(1)) receptor antagonist, (2S,3S)-3-[(1R)-6-methoxy-1-methyl-1-trifluoromethylisochroman-7-yl]-methylamino-2-phenylpiperidine 'CJ-17,493' (compound (+)-1), was synthesized stereoselectively using a kinetic resolution by lipase-PS as a key step. Compound (+)-1 displayed high and selective affinity (K(i)=0.2 nM) for the human NK(1) receptor in IM-9 cells, potent activity in the [Sar(9), Met(O(2))(11)]SP-induced gerbil tapping model (ED(50)=0.04 mg/kg, s.c.) and in the ferret cisplatin (10mg/kg, i.p.)-induced anti-emetic activity model (vomiting: ED(90)=0.07 mg/kg, s.c.), all levels of activity comparable with those of CP-122,721. In addition, compound (+)-1 exhibited linear pharmacokinetics rather than the super dose-proportionality of CP-122,721 and this result provides a potential solution for the clinical issue observed with CP-122,721.
