    Follow "'2014' Suzhou International Elite Entrepreneurship Week" with interest Over 88 billion venture capital investment helps your pioneering dreams come true


    Since 2009, there have been 1267 overseas high-level talent projects settled in Suzhou through International Elite Entrepreneurship Week and 54 talents have been introduced and fostered for the national "Thousand Talents Plan". Among these 53 talents, Dr. Chen Minhua, the founder of Suzhou Crystal Pharmatech Co., Ltd., was deeply impressed by thoughtful services in Suzhou for innovative pioneering talents when he recalled the development in Suzhou. "Investment and financing services are placed with particular importance. Everything is thoroughly considered for fear that enterprise
      In 2010, Chen Minhua quitted his job in a well-known pharmaceutical company in the United States and returned with his core 4-people R&D team. He founded Crystal Pharmatech Co., Ltd. in Suzhou Biobay through the Entrepreneurship Week. Till 2013, Crystal Pharmatech has made profits year by year. The yearly output value in 2013 reached 18 million Yuan, while the profits reached as high as 4 million Yuan. His clients involve half of top 20 pharmaceutical companies globally. Chen Minhua longs to fill the vacancy of drug crystals in China and take the lead in the international drug crystal research. Chen Minhua introduced that government service is an integral part to his growth. "Since it was settled down, Suzhou public sector organized several investment and financing activities and offered training and services in various aspects like the mode of financing, finance docking and enterprise strategic investment, which laid a solid foundation for Crystal Pharmatech's capital expansion", said by Chen Minhua.

      To help high-level talents solve financial difficulty, Suzhou lays stress on the docking of science & technology and finance. The person in charge of the Municipal Science and Technology Bureau said that Suzhou guides and integrates social capital for equity investment of hi-tech enterprises at the start-up stage via the guiding funds set up by the government and follow-up investment, etc, thus evolving the venture capital investment cluster based on Shahu Equity Investment Center. After the national "Thousand Talents Plan" venture capital investment center was set up, pioneering talents and venture capital are further converging here. As of the end of 2013, there are 270 effective organizations engaged in various venture capital investment in Suzhou that manage the funds in excess of 88 billion Yuan. 30 million Yuan will be appropriated from the municipal science and technology fund budget for the newly established FOF of Angel Investment this year, so as to take avail of social capital for the development of small and medium-sized hi-tech enterprises.

      Meanwhile, Suzhou sets up the special compensation fund against credit risks and offers "Kedaitong" with "low threshold and low interest rate", so as to solve financial difficulty of small and medium-sized hi-tech enterprises and create favorable financing environment for the pioneering work of talents and corporate development. At present, the fund of credit risk pool has reached 500 million Yuan and "Kedaitong" loans of 8.52 billion Yuan have been granted for 1023 small and medium-sized hi-tech enterprises. Particularly, 120 pioneering enterprises that feature independent intellectual property, high content of technology and light assets were backed up with 1.314 billion Yuan, the special risk compensation fund of "Kedaitong", thus vigorously supporting innovation and pioneering work of leading talents in the science and technology community in Suzhou.

New Patent, (S)-pregabalin, WO 2017019791, Teva

Synthesis of (S)-pregabalin, Teva
TEVA PHARMACEUTICALS INTERNATIONAL GMBH [CH/CH]; Schusselstrasse 12 8645 Jona (CH) (For All Designated States Except US).
JANAGANI, Satyanarayana [US/US]; (US) (US only)
Improved process for preparing (S)-pregabalin, useful for treating pain, seizures, convulsions and anxiety. Also claims novel intermediates of (S)-pregabalin and their preparation method.
Pregabalin, a GABA alpha-2-delta subunit agonist, had been developed and launched by Pfizer.
Teva received a FDA approval for its generic pregabalin capsules (25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, 225 and 300 mg).
S)-Pregabalin, (S)-(+)-3-(aminomethyl)-5-methylhexanoic acid, a compound having the chemical structure,
str1
is also known as pregabalin, γ-amino butyric acid or (S)-3-isobutyl GABA. (S)-Pregabalin, marketed under the name LYRICA®, has been found to activate GAD (L-glutamic acid decarboxylase). (S)-Pregabalin has a dose dependent protective effect on seizure, and is a CNS-active compound. (S)-Pregabalin is useful in anticonvulsant therapy, due to its activation of GAD, promoting the production of GABA, one of the brain's major inhibitory neurotransmitters, which is released at 30 percent of the brains synapses. (S)-Pregabalin has analgesic, anticonvulsant, and anxiolytic activity.
Several processes for the synthesis of (S)-Pregabalin are known. For example, U.S. Patent No. 5,599,973 ("'973 patent") discloses the preparation of (S)-Pregabalin using a stoichiometric amount of (4R,5S)-(+) 4-methyl-5-phenyl-2-oxazolidinone as a chiral auxiliary that may be recycled. See, e.g., '973 patent, col. 14, 1. 29 to col. 18, 1. 23 (example 1). In general, however, the route disclosed in the '973 patent is of limited use on an industrial scale, principally due to the low temperature required for the reaction (e.g., -78°C), the use of pyrophoric reagent (e.g., butyl lithium), and a low overall yield (e.g. , 59%, 65%).
U.S. Publication No. 2003/0212290 ("'290 publication") discloses the synthesis of (S)-Pregabalin by an asymmetric hydrogenation of a cyano-substituted olefin of formula 7, to produce a cyano precursor of (S)-3-(aminomethyl)-5-methyl hexanoic acid of formula 8, which i btain (S)-Pregabalin, as described in the following scheme.
[(R,R)-MeD PHOS]Rh(COD)+BF4-
However, the disclosed method requires the use of carbon monoxide under high pressure, raising serious problems in adapting this process for production scale.
Another process is disclosed by G.M. Sammis, et al, J. Am. Chem. Soc , 125(15): 4442-43 (2003), in which an aluminum salen catalyst is used in the conjugate addition of hydrogen cyanide to a, β-unsaturated imides.
str1
Pregabalin
This process is also not practical for large scale production due to the use of highly poisonous reagents. In addition, the last reduction step requires high hydrogen pressure, which only adds to the difficulties required for adapting this process for use on an industrial scale.
International Publication WO 2006/110783 reports several processes for preparing (S)-Pregabalin via the following intermediate and its analogues.
R^OC "COOR2
wherein Ri and R2 are independently H, a straight or branched Ci-10 alkyl, C6-10 aryl, or C3-6 allyl.
U.S. Publication Nos. 2007/0191636 and 2007/0197827 also disclose processes for preparing (S)-Pregabalin.
Thus, there is a need in the art for additional process for the preparation of (S)-Pregabalin that provide (S)-Pregabalin in high quality and high yield, and that can be adapted to large (industrial) scale production.
