Fully Synthetic Tetracyclines: Increasing Chemical Diversity to Combat Multidrug-Resistant Bacterial Infections

Part of the Topics in Medicinal Chemistry book series


A convergent total synthesis platform has enabled diverse modifications of the tetracycline chemical space that were previously inaccessible or difficult to access by traditional semisynthesis. Using this powerful chemical synthesis technology, new tetracycline scaffolds were designed leading to the discovery of novel, fully synthetic tetracyclines with potent, broad-spectrum antibacterial activity against multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens. This discovery effort produced a number of tetracycline antibiotic development candidates currently in various stages of clinical study, including eravacycline (TP-434), which has advanced into several late-stage clinical trials in patients with complicated intro-abdominal infections (cIAI) and in patients with complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI). This chapter describes the design, synthesis, and evaluation of several fully synthetic tetracycline series, including the disubstituted tetracyclines (fluorocyclines), the heterocyclines, and the polycyclines.
