On the basis of the results obtained in previous series of AMPA potentiators belonging to 3,4-dihydro-2H-benzo- and 3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrido-1,2,4-thiadiazine 1,1-dioxides, the present work focuses on the ... [more ▼]

On the basis of the results obtained in previous series of AMPA potentiators belonging to 3,4-dihydro-2H-benzo- and 3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrido-1,2,4-thiadiazine 1,1-dioxides, the present work focuses on the design of original isosteric 3,4-dihydro-2H-thieno-1,2,4-thiadiazine 1,1-dioxides. Owing to the sulfur position, three series of compounds were developed and their activity as AMPA potentiators was characterized. In each of the developed series, potent compounds were discovered. After screening the selected active compounds on a safety in vivo test, 6-chloro-4-ethyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-thieno[2,3-e]-1,2,4-thiadiazine 1,1-dioxide (24) appeared as the most promising compound and was further evaluated. Its effects on long-term potentiation in vivo and on AMPA-mediated noradrenaline release were measured to predict its potential cognitive enhancing properties. Finally, an object recognition test performed in mice revealed that 24 was able to significantly enhance cognition, after oral administration, at doses as low as 0.3 mg/kg. This study validates the interest of the isosteric replacement of the benzene or pyridine nuclei by the thiophene nucleus in the ring-fused thiadiazine dioxides class of AMPA potentiators. [less ▲]

In the search of a potent cognitive enhancer, a series of 3,4-dihydro-2H-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine 1,1-dioxides have been synthesized and evaluated as positive allosteric modulators of the AMPA receptors. In the present work, we focused our efforts on the insertion of mono- or polyfluoro- substituted alkyl chains at the 4-position of the thiadiazine ring in an attempt to enhance the pharmacokinetic behavior of previously described compounds. Among all the described compounds, 7-chloro-4-(2-fluoroethyl)-3,4-dihydro-2H-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine 1,1-dioxide, 12b, was shown to exert a strong activity on AMPA receptors in vitro and a marked cognitive-enhancing effect in vivo after oral administration to Wistar rats. Considering its in vivo activity, the metabolic degradation of 12b was studied and compared to that of its nonfluorinated analogue 9b. Taken together, results of this study clearly validated the positive impact of the fluorine atom on the alkyl chain at the 4-position of benzothiadiazine dioxides on activity and metabolic stability.

Taking into account structure-activity relationships obtained with our previous series, new diversely substituted 1,2,4-pyridothiadiazine 1,1-dioxides were designed to obtain novel AMPA potentiators. The aim of this work was focused on the improvement of lipophilicity, which is well known as a critical parameter to obtain in vivo active central nervous system agents. For this purpose, two positions on the pyridine ring were privileged to insert selected groups. Among the synthesized compounds emerged 7-chloro-4-ethyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrido[2,3-e]-[1,2,4]-thiadiazine 1,1-dioxide (12d), which was evaluated in two memory tests in Wistar rats and showed cognition enhancing effects after intraperitoneal injection at doses as low as 0.3mg/kg.

A series of 3,4-dihydro-2H-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine 1,1-dioxides have been synthesized and evaluated as potentiators of AMPA receptors. Attention was paid to the impact of the substituent introduced at the 7-position of the heterocycle. The biological evaluation was achieved by measuring the AMPA current in rat cortex mRNA-injected Xenopus oocytes. The most potent compound, 4-ethyl-7-fluoro-3,4-dihydro-2H-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine 1,1-dioxide (12a) was found to be active in an object recognition test in rats demonstrating cognition enhancing effects in vivo after oral administration.
