    ABSTRACT: Intermittent administration of parathyroid hormone (PTH) has a potent anabolic effect on bone in humans and animals. Calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) antagonists stimulate endogenous PTH secretion through CaSR on the surface of parathyroid cells and thereby may be anabolic agents for osteoporosis. JTT-305 is a potent oral short-acting CaSR antagonist and transiently stimulates endogenous PTH secretion. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects of JTT-305 on PTH secretion and bone in ovariectomized rats. Female rats, immediately after ovariectomy (OVX), were orally administered vehicle or JTT-305 (0.3, 1, or 3 mg/kg) for 12 weeks. The serum PTH concentrations were transiently elevated with increasing doses of JTT-305. In the proximal tibia, JTT-305 prevented OVX-induced decreases in both the cancellous and total bone mineral density (BMD) except for the 0.3mg/kg dose. At the 3mg/kg dose, JTT-305 increased the mineralizing surface and bone formation rate in histomorphometry. The efficacy of JTT-305 at the 3mg/kg dose on the BMD corresponded to that of exogenous rat PTH1-84 injection at doses between 3 and 10 μg/kg. In conclusion, JTT-305 stimulated endogenous transient PTH secretion and bone formation, and consequently prevented bone loss in OVX rats. These results suggest that JTT-305 is orally active and has the potential to be an anabolic agent for the treatment of osteoporosis.

    ABSTRACT: Short-acting oral calcilytics, calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) antagonists, have been considered as alternatives for parathyroid hormone (PTH), an injectable bone anabolic drug used in the treatment of osteoporosis. Previously, we identified aminopropandiol 1, which transiently stimulated endogenous PTH secretion in rats. However, the inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2D6 and the low bioavailability of 1 remain to be solved. Attempts to change the physicochemical properties of the highly lipophilic amine 1 by introduction of a carboxylic acid group as well as further structural modifications led to the discovery of the highly potent biphenylcarboxylic acid 15, with a markedly reduced CYP2D6 inhibition and a significantly improved bioavailability. Compound 15 evoked a rapid and transient elevation of endogenous PTH levels in rats after oral administration in a dose-dependent manner at a dose as low as 1 mg/kg. The PTH secretion pattern correlated with the pharmacokinetic profile and agreed well with that of the exogenous PTH injection which exerts a bone anabolic effect.Keywords (keywords): Calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) antagonist; calcilytics; PTH; short-acting; osteoporosis; cytochrome P450 inhibition
