After some adaptation to the needs of the method and rehearsal of the chemistry, libraries could be generated relatively quickly. Many analogs were then available by comparatively simple variations in the reactants employed.
Clearly, in drug seeking, one can operate in much the same manner after identification of a suitable hit molecule. The strategy required in hit seeking, however, is rather different. Here the initial libraries are usually bigger and more diverse. After the library is screened, and useful molecules are uncovered, subsequent refining libraries are employed that are progressively smaller and more focused. Each succeeding library benefits from the information gained in the previous work so this can be considered. As the work progresses, the needs for quantities of material for evaluation become more and more so the work usually proceeds back into the larger scale one at a time mode resembling the BC before combichem era.
A couple of examples represent the very large amount of work carried out in this manner. First, consider the discovery and progression of OC , an orally active modulator of P-glycoprotein-mediated multiple drug resistance that has entered clinical studies. First, a membered library of variously substituted imidazoles was prepared on a mixture of aldehyde and amine beads Fig. The choice of materials was based on prior knowledge of the structures of other P-glycoprotein modulators. Screening this library in whole cells led to the identification of two main leads, A, possessing an IC,, of nM, and B, possessing an IC,, of 80 nM.
These results were very encouraging. The third stage involved making a solutionbased library based on the structures of A and B. Interestingly, D was an unexpected by-product. The chemistry in libraries does not always go as intended. In addition to reasonable potency, D showed enhanced metabolic stability, so it was chosen as the lead for the next phase. Later biological studies in vitro and in vivo have shown that the agent enhances the activity of paclitaxel by interfering with its export by P-glycoprotein. It is not a substrate for CYP3A and interferes with paclitaxel metabolism only at comparatively high doses.
After IV administration, OC does not interfere with paclitaxel's pharmacokinetic profile but elevates its area under the curve when given orally. The results are interpreted as. Further studies are in progress and it is hoped that a marketed anticancer adjunct will emerge in due course as a result of combinatorial chemistry In a different study, a search through a company compound collection was made in an attempt to find an inhibitor of the Erm family of methyltransferases.
These bacterial enzymes produce resistance to the widely used macrolide-lincosaminide-streptogramin B an-. These problems have largely been overcome, and today the choice of beads or no beads is partly a matter of taste, the size of the libraries being made, and the length of the reaction sequences required. The remainder of this chapter deals with selected examples that illustrates particular concepts and methodologies. This interferes with the binding of the antibiotics and conveys resistance to them. Analogs were retrieved from the collection, and analogs A, B, and C identified as promising for further work.
A solution phase parallel synthesis study was performed from which compound D emerged as being significantly potent. Next a compound library was prepared to discover the best R group on the left side of compound D. From this, compounds E and F emerged. These were now potent in the low micromolar range. The left side of analog E was fixed and the right side was investigated through a membered library. Thus, starting with a very weak lead with a malleable structure, successive libraries produced analogs with quite significant potency for further exploration It is " iust a decade after this field became generally active, yet already most of the common drug series and hundreds of different heterocyclic classes have been prepared in library form.
Originally the emphasis was on bead-. In communicating their results, chemists explicate the route with formulae and often discuss the relative strengths and weaknesses of key reagents but almost never devote time to workup. Even so, the details of the workup require attention to detail in the performance and are sometimes quite challenging. This factor becomes even more demanding in combinatorial work where the need for rapid, effective workup is intensified.
Little is gained if one saves much time in construction only to have to give this back by tedious and repetitious purification schemes. Performing chem: istry on beads addresses this in that simple filtration and washing often suffices. This is not as useful if the reactions do not go to completion, so considerable excess of reagents and more lengthy times are often employed to drive the reactions further to completion. Separation from solution in solid form or simple evaporation is very convenient, and manifolds for filtration and for solvent removal are commercially available.
From a drugability standpoint, there is a danger in this.

Compounds that separate readily from polar solvents are often of very low water solubility and present difficulties in testing. A number of commercially available combinatorial screening libraries are peppered with such substances. Column chromatography is powerful but often labor intensive and solvent consuming. Separation of hundreds of analogs by column chromatography would be a nightmare.
With smaller, focused libraries, this is often more manageable. More frequently automated chromatographic reverse phase methods are employed in which round the clock separations not requiring constant human supervision are available. Chromofiltration methods are powerful and rapid but often require study for optimization. We have found, for example, that choice of the appropriate solvent for solutionbased multiple parallel synthesis can occasionally result in reaction mixtures from which the desired product can be isolated in pure form by suitable choice of absorbent and concentration or evaporation from the eluent However this is generally exceptional.
One can sometimes doctor silica gel, for example, to enhance its use for these purposes. More generally applicable has been the development of many reagents tethered to solid supports. These reagents perform their intended role and then the excess reagent and. In this case, the compounds are in solution and the reagents are on the solids. A great many reagents have been prepared for use in this manner and the area has been reviewed extensively Whereas ion exchange applications have been around a long time in the medicinal chemist's laboratory, the requirements of combinatorial chemistry have engendered a flowering of additional resins and uses.
These are particularly useful in solutionbased MPS but clearly find wide applications in other types of chemistry as well. An exhaustive treatment is beyond the scope of this summary, but a few examples help clarify the many uses to which this exciting technology can be put. The diphenylphosphine oxide product is often troublesome to remove from nontethered reactions, but here is readily separated leaving the clean product behind.
An illustrative example of the power of this method is the resin-assisted synthesis of the adrenergic P-blockingagent, propranolol, outlined in Fig. In the six chemical steps required for this preparation, three involved the use of resin-based reagents. It is obvious that many possible variants leading to a library of related molecules could be prepared by simple modifications of the reagents and substrates.
Another important and powerful methodology employs capture or scavenger resins. Here resin-tethered bases, for example, are employed to remove acidic reaction products from reaction mixtures, and these can be regenerated for further use. Likewise, these materials can be used to remove acidic reagents or byproducts leaving the desired reaction product in the solution.
Isocyanate resins are used to remove primary and secondary amines and alcohols, benzaldehyde tethered to a resin is used to remove primary amines and hydrazines, carbonate resins remove carboxylic acids and phenols, diphenylphosphine resins remove alkyl halides, and tethered trisamine removes acid chlorides, sulfonyl chlorides, and isocyanates. This methodology is similar in concept to the well-established ion exchange methodologies.
The use of acid and base resins to remove ionizable products and byproducts from reaction mixtures is familiar. The use of tethered isocyanates to remove excess amine is less familiar but readily comprehended. These and analogous reagents have been. An example of the preparation of a library of drug-like molecules in solution employing resin capture methodology is illustrated in Fig.
The sequence starts with Suzuki-type coupling with a series of aryl halides. The desired intermediate is present in the product mixture with a variety of reaction detritus including diarylated material. The desired product is captured out of this stew by use of a resin bound aryl iodide which reacts exclusively with it. This device is sometimes called phase switching.
The resin bound product is purified by rinsing and the reaction sequence is completed by acid release from the capture resin. Highly fluorinated organic molecules are often insoluble at room temperature in both water and in organic solvents. At higher temperatures, however, they are soluble. Thus, heating a reaction mixture involving such a molecule to speed the reaction and then cooling on completion often allows the product to separate in pure or at least purified form by phase switching into the fluorinated solvent.
This is very convenient for rapid work-up of combinatorial libraries. Recently, silica gel columns with a fluorous phase have been introduced to facilitate separations. Compounds elute from these columns in the order of their decreasing fluorine content. This can be illustrated Fig. In this case,. Syntheses could then be performed in mixtures and at the end the products were separated based on the number of fluorines in their tags.
Detagging produced the individual pure products. The method is not general but is very convenient when used appropriately , It is also possible to remove desired reaction products, if aggressive by-products and reagents are not present, by chromatography over immobilized receptor preparations. Gel filtration is also helpful in sorting out a binding component from a mixture library containing analogs with little affmity for the pharmacological target.
Because of the impact of these newer methods, today one rarely sees a separatory funnel in a combichem laboratory.

This chemistry is also comparatively "green" in that solvent needs can be greatly reduced and disposal of unwanted materials is simplified. The level of desired purity of the components is also a matter of debate. Actionable quantitative biological data can be obtained from pure samples and uncertainties into selecting the most active constituents to pursue are increasingly introduced by assaying less pure material.
Three grades of products can be distinguished. Indeed, chemists occasionally report anecdotally finding that an active component in a library has none of the intended compound in it at all. This complicates analoging but is more satisfactory than basing SAR-based design on negative activity data wherein one can be significantly mislead in such cases. Tag - d' Figure 1. Illustration of fluorous phase methods in the synthesis of a mappacine library.
One is disturbed to note also that in a few cases where a census has been taken of very large libraries, the wrong or missing structures are not statistically distributed Thus, such libraries have a structural bias. For example, the chemistry may selectively favor production of more lipophilic substances so that hydrophilic examples are underrepresented. It is hard to see how to get around this conveniently. A great variety of resins and solid supports are available for combinatorial work Geltype supports are popular and consist of a flexible polymeric matrix to which is attached functional groups capable of binding small.
The particular advantage of this inert support is that the whole volume of the gel is available for use rather than just the surface. Generally these consist of cross-linked polystyrene resins, cross-linked polyacrylamide resins, polyethylene glycol PEG grafted resins, and PEG-based resins. Surface functionalized supports have a lower loading capacity and many types are available.
These include cellulose fibers, sintered polyethylene, glass, and silica gels. Composite gels are also used. These include treated Teflon membranes, kieselguhr, and the like. Brush polymers consist of polystyrene or the like grafted onto a polyethylene film or tube. The linking functionality varies. Commonly employed resins are the Merrifield,. Wang, Rink, and Ellman types. These are illustrated in Fig. Molecules possessing a permanent dipole align themselves in a microwave apparatus and oscillate as the field oscillates. This rapid motion generates intense homogeneous internal heat greatly facilitating organic reactions, especially in the solid state.
For example, heat-demanding Diels-Alder reactions can take days on solid support, hours in solution, and only minutes under microwave. This has been adapted to combinatorial methods and is even compatible with a well plate format Combinatorial synthesis and high-throughput screening generate an enormous amount of data. Keeping track of this is a job for highspeed computers. Many firms have developed their own programs for the data handling, and there are commercial packages that may be useful as well. The best of these have structure drawing capacity also.
Analysis of the degree of completeness and the identity of the product is simpler than that seen in solid phase work. This closely parallels general experience in the pre-combichem days with the excevtion that the work load is greatly magnified. Automation is called for and hplcltof mass spectrometry is of particular value. Even so, with very large libraries, one is usually restricted by necessity to statistical sampling and compound identification rarely goes beyond ascertaining whether the product has the correct molecular weight. If activity is found then more detailed examination takes place.
With solid-state libraries, the problem is much more complex. An enormous effort has. Patent considerations are complex in combinatorial chemistry. The mass of potential data is hard to compress into a suitable format for this purpose. Commonly, patenting takes place comparatively late in a drug-seeking campaign and so differs little from traditional patenting. One notes however that the comparative speed and ease of molecule construction makes it possible to reduce to practice rather more examples that would have been possible in the one-at-a-time days. Rather more disturbing is the increasing tendency to patent various means of making and evaluating libraries rather than focusing on their content.
The fundamental purpose of patenting is to promote the useful arts and to provide protection for innovative discoveries for a period and then to share them with society in general. Patenting of means of produc-. This should be guarded against. Combinatorial chemistry and multiple parallel syntheses have transformed the field of medicinal chemistry for the better.
The last decade has seen a revitalization and much dramatically useful technology has been discovered. No laboratory seriously involved in the search for new therapeutic agents can afford not to employ this technology. From the vantage point of , one can now look back at what has been done in the amazingly short time that this technique has been widely explored and one can see some things more clearly now and use the methodology more cunningly.
In the heady early days of combinatorial chemistry one frequently heard the opinion that existing drugs were only those to which nature or good fortune had laid a clear path. Some believed that there were large numbers of underexplored structural types that could be drugs if only they were prepared and screened. Combichem promised to make this a reality. It would be nice, indeed, if this had turned out to be true! It cannot be denied that there is some justice in this belief; speculative synthesis continues to reveal important drugs. Nonetheless, the cruel restraints that ADME and toxicity considerations place on our chemical imagination have ruined this dream of easy and unlimited progress.
The present wedding of combichem with medicinal chemical knowledge is extremely powerful, and we no longer in the main waste time on collections of molecules that have no chance of becoming drugs. Clearly space for chemical diversity is larger than space for medicinal diversity. BC before combichem there was little motivation for enhanced speed of synthesis. Generally, synthesis could be accomplished much more quickly than screening and evaluation of the products.
Enhanced speed of construction simply produced a greater backlog of work to be done. The advent of high-through-. The backlogs emptied rapidly, and there was a demand for more compounds. In addition, new firms were founded to take advantage of newer screening methodologies. These firms had no retained chemical libraries to screen and larger firms were reluctant to allow their libraries to be screened by outsiders. A significant part of these needs were met by the methods in this chapter.
With synthesis and screening back in phase, the next choke point in the pipeline has become animal testing, pharmacokinetics, toxicity, solubility, and penetrability. These factors are presently under intensive examination in attempts to elucidate these properties in a similarly rapid fashion or to predict them so that favorable characteristics can be designed into chemical library members from the outset and thus largely avoid having to deal with them.
It can readily be seen that further choke points lie distally in the pipeline and these will have to be dealt with in turn. Some time can be saved by speeding things along the way and also by dealing with the remaining constrictions in parallel rather than simultaneously, but it is difficult to see how they can all be resolved in a rapid manner.
Fortunately the flow through the pipeline diminishes through increasing failure of leads to qualify for further advancement and this is helpful in reducing the magnitude of the job but the problems remaining will still be vexing. Part of the difficulty is that certain biological phenomena cannot be hurried. For example, no matter how much money and effort one is willing to throw at the problem, producing a baby requires essentially 9 months from conception.
Hiring nine women will not result in producing a baby in 1 month. The problem in shortening drug seekingis further compounded in that the problem is not akin to brick laying. To produce a brick wall of a given dimensions more quickly is largely a matter of buying the bricks and hiring and motivating enough skilled labor. In drug seeking, one has to design the bricks first and develop the technology. Combichem does speed the process along but does not remove the elements of uncertainty that must be overcome.
Given the strictures placed on clinical studies and their solidification in law and custom, it is. High-throughput screening can be likened to hastening the process of finding a needle in a haystack. Combinatorial chemistry can be likened to the preparation of needles.
Ideally one should strive to make a few more useful needles embedded in progressively smaller haystacks. This involves mating as well as is possible productive chemical characteristics with productive biological properties. Combinatorial chemistry and multiple parallel synthesis in the hands of the skillful and lucky chemist rapidly zeros in on the best combination of atoms for a given purpose. This chemist receives approbation for hisher efforts. Those who consistently come up with useless compounds will eventually be encouraged to find other work. Unfortunately this has yet to result in a burst of new introductions.
Certainly chemical novelty has largely given way to potential use. Diversity no longer rules. This is perhaps the combinatorial chemist's equivalent of the businessman's mantra that whereas efficiency is doing things properly, effectiveness is doing proper things. As with much of the points being discussed, achieving a proper balance is essential. It is interesting to note also that a fold increase in screening activity has not yet resulted in a corresponding increase in the introduction of new pharmaceuticals.
Part of the explanation for this is that ease of synthesis does not necessarily equate to equivalent value of the products. If each compound in chemical libraries was carefully designed and the data therefrom carefully analyzed, then the disparity would be smaller than the present experience produces. Another exculpatory factor is that much of the low hanging fruit has already been harvested and the remaining diseases are more chronic than acute and are much more complex in their etiology. Despite all of these considerations, drug seeking is an exciting enterprise calling for the best of our talents and the appropriate use of high speed synthetic methods gives us a powerful new tool to use.
