Adapalene Usage And Synthesis
Naphthoic acid derivativeAdapalene, a new class of drugs Naphthoic acid derivatives, was developed by France Galdeama Laboratories Company. It first entered into market in June 1996, under the trade name "Differin", mainly used for relieving inflammatory skin lesions, adjusting differentiation of hair follicles, gland epithelial cells, and also acne treatment.
Pharmacological effectsAdapalene is a retinoid compounds, and is proven to have anti-inflammatory properties in both in vivo and in vitro models of inflammation. It has stable chemical structure, and is not easily to break down in the air and the light. It shares the same mode of action with retinoic acid, bounding to specific retinoic acid nuclear receptors except that adapalene doesn’t bound to the cytoplasmic protein binding receptor. It has been proven to treat acne and affect acne vulgaris and differentiation in skin drug tests established by mouse animal model. Its mechanism of action is reducing the formation of micro-acne through leading the normal differentiation of hair follicle cells. In the standard anti-inflammatory assay both in vivo and in vitro, adapalene has a better effect than retinoic acid. It can inhibit the chemotaxis reaction of human polymorphonuclear leukocytes and also inhibit the metabolism of polymorphonuclear cell through inhibition the formation of anti-inflammatory mediators via oxidation reaction of arachidonic acid, thus relieving inflammatory response by the cell-mediated response. It is useful in the treatment of routine skin with acne, pimples and pustules as the main performance. It can also be used for the treatment of the acne presented in face, chest and back.
The above information is edited by the Chemicalbook of Dai Xiongfeng.
PharmacokineticsThe transdermal absorption rate of adapalene is very low. In clinical trials, the adapalene level of skin acne areas subject to long-term treatment is undetectable. Appling C14 labeled adapalene for rats (intravenous, intraperitoneal injection, oral and dermal medication), rabbits (intravenous oral and dermal administration), respectively, clarified the distribution of radioactivity among various tissues. Also, liver, spleen adrenal and ovarian have the highest level. Adapalene is mainly metabolized through demethylation, hydroxylation and binding reactions of oxygen 1 and metabolism in vivo and mainly excreted through bile.
[Interaction] No interaction between the product and other skin drugs has been reported. But we should not use other retinoids or other drugs with similar mechanism of action. Adapalene has stable chemical structure, and is not easily to break down in the air and sunlight. A wide range of animal and human studies found no phototoxicity and photosensitivity. However, it is not clear whether it is safe to take it when animal and humans are subject to repeated exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet. Avoid excessive sunshine and UV radiation when use this product. Adapalene has a very low level of transdermal absorption, making it impossible to interact with the systematic medication drugs. No evidence was found that the effect of birth control pills, antibiotics and other oral medications are affected by the using Duff Man for treating skin disease.
Duff Man may have a slight local stimulation. Being treated together with the peeling agent, agent or contraction irritating substances can cause additional irritation. Therefore, use other skin medication early in the morning such as erythromycin (concentrations ≤4%), clindamycin phosphate (1%) aqueous solution or benzoyl peroxide gel (concentration ≤10%); Use Duff Man gel at night so that you can avoid drug co-degradation or accumulation of stimulation effect.
[Adverse reactions] During the first 2-4 weeks of treatment, the most common adverse reactions are erythema, dryness, scaling, itching, burning or tingling. The extent is mostly mild to moderate. Less frequent adverse reactions include: sunburn, skin irritation, burning and stinging skin discomfort. Rarely adverse reactions include: redness of acne, dermatitis and contact dermatitis, eye swelling, conjunctivitis, redness, itching, skin discoloration, rashes and eczema. Reduce the amount of drugs applied or totally withdrawal when serious adverse reactions happen.
Adapalene acid drug safety compared with other topical Vitamin AThe effect of traditional topical Vitamin A acid drugs (RA) on the treatment of acne vulgaris is indeed very good, but the irritating side effects limit its use. RA causes local irritation because of its unstable structure and poor receptor selectivity caused by series of weak divalent bond chains in its molecular structure. Studies have shown that RA can be degraded by a number of factors: exposure to sunlight within 24 h, 60.0%~80.0% of baseline concentration RA degradation, and if use an oxidizing agent such as benzoyl peroxide the same time when apply RA, 80% of RA would be degraded within 4 h, and all RA disappear within 24 h. In order to find a more stable molecule with similar effect as RA but much smaller side effect, people developed a naphthoic acid derivative-adapalene. Adapalene has small irritation effect due to: 1. Molecularly stable: The unstable divalent bond chains in RA are replaced by the aromatic ring of naphthoic acid, making it stable in the light and oxidants without degradation even in 72 h. 2. Highly selective receptor binding: after entering the cell, RA first bound to cytoplasmic vitamin A acid bound protein (CRABP), and has no selectivity when binds to nuclear receptor RARα, β, γ. Adapalene does not bind CRABP, but selectively binds to specific amino acids sequences of the binding site in nuclear receptor RAR-β and RAR-γ receptor, then binds to RXR, further binds to specific DNA sites, regulating transcription machinery, protein synthesis, and cell proliferation and differentiation. Therefore, it is highly specific and has a small side effect. 3. Low cellular toxicity: Study found that effects of different vitamin A acid on keratinocyte cell cytotoxicity are also different. Adapalene molecule is neutral, has low cytotoxicity to keratinocytes compared with the long-chain organic acids, Vitamin A acid. 4. Adapalene has a clear anti-inflammatory effect. However, this kind of effect for other Vitamin A acid is not still clear.
In short, adapalene, a third generation vitamin A drugs, not only have a stronger effect on regulation of epidermal cell differentiation, inhibit proliferation of hair follicle keratinocytes and keratinocytes, inhibition sebaceous cell proliferation, dissolved angle plug acne, etc than all-trans vitamin A acid drugs, but also has a strong anti-inflammatory effect. Because of its unique stability, its efficacy and tolerability is much higher than other Vitamin A acid drugs.
UsesRetinoic acid analogs. Adapalene is an agonist of RARβ, and RARγ receptor. Adapalene inhibits cell proliferation and inducing apoptosis in colorectal cancer cells in vitro. Adapalene gel is an effective medication for treatment of acne.

DefinitionChEBI: A naphthoic acid that is CD437 in which the phenolic hydroxy group has been converted to its methyl ether.
IndicationsAdapalene (Differin) is a polyaromatic retinoidlike compound that binds to specific retinoic acid nuclear receptors and is thought to normalize the differentiation of keratinocytes in the sebaceous acroinfundibulum. Adapelene is indicated for topical treatment of acne. Minor local irritation is a common, usually tolerable side effect. In contrast to other drugs of the retinoid group, adapalene has not been shown to be teratogenic in rodents. However, since adequate human studies are lacking, its use in pregnant women should be discouraged until further information is available.
Manufacturing ProcessPreparation of 6-(3-(1-adamantyl)-4-methoxyphenyl)-2-naphthoic acid consist of 4 steps.
1. 2-(1-Adamantyl)-4-bromophenol.
34.6 g (200 mmol) of p-bromophenol and 30.4 g (200 mmol) of 1- adamantanol are dissolved in 100 ml of dichloromethane. To the resulting solution there are slowly added 10 ml of concentrated sulfuric acid. The mixture is stirred for 8 hours at ambient temperature, poured into water, neutralized with sodium bicarbonate, extracted with methylehe chloride, dried and evaporated. After recrystallization in isooctane 52.8 g of the expected product are obtained. Yield - 86%. MP: 140°-141°C. 2. 2-(1-Adamantyl)-4-bromoanisole.
To suspension of sodium hydride (80% in oil, 4.32 g, 144 mmol) in 50 ml of THF, there are slowly added while maintaining the temperature at 20°C, 36.8 g (120 mmol) of 2-(1-adamantyl)-4-bromophenol. The mixture is stirred for 1 hour at ambient temperature at which point 9 ml of methyl iodide are added. The mixture is then stirred for 2 hours at 20°C, poured into water, extracted with ether, dried and evaporated. The product is purified by passage through a silica column (10x30), eluting with a mixture of hexane (90%) and dichloromethane (10%). On evaporation, 26.2 g of a white solid are obtained. Yield - 68%. MP: 138°-139°C.
3. Methyl ester of 6-(3-(1-adamantyl)-4-methoxyphenyl)-2-naphthoic acid.
To a suspension of magnesium (1.64 g, 67.5 mmol in 30 ml of THF, there is added a solution of 1.4 g (4.5 mmol) of 2-(1-adamantyl)-4-bromoanisole and 0.39 ml of dibromoethane in 10 ml of THF. The mixture is stirred until the reaction is initiated and then there is slowly added a solution of (40.8 mmol) of 2-(1-adamantyl)-4-bromoanisole in 90 ml of THF. The mixture is refluxed for 2 hours, and then cooled to 20°C. After that 6.2 g (45 mmol) of anhydrous ZnCl2 are added. The mixture is stirred for 1 hour at 20°C at which point 7.95 g (30 mmol) of methyl 6-bromo-2-naphthoate are added followed by addition of 300 g of NiCl2/1,2-(diphenylphosphino)ethane-complex as the catalyst. The mixture is stirred again for 2 hours at 20°C, poured into water, extracted with CH2Cl2 dried and evaporated. The product is isolated by column chromatography, eluting with a mixture of heptane (70%) and dichloromethane (30%) and then recrystallized in ethyl acetate. 12.2 g of the expected product are obtained. Yield - 78%. MP: 222°-223°C.
4. 6-(3-(1-Adamantyl)-4-methoxyphenyl)-2-naphthoic acid.
10.5 g of the ester obtained above (step 3) are treated with a solution of soda in methanol (200 ml, 4.2 N). The mixture is heated at reflux for 48 hours. The solvents are evaporated and the resulting residue is taken up in water and acidified with concentrated HCl. The solid is filtered and dried under vacuum over phosphoric anhydride.
