A number of cytotoxic pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD) monomers containing various disulfide-based prodrugs were evaluated for their ability to undergo activation (disulfide cleavage) in vitro in the presence of either glutathione (GSH) or cysteine (Cys). A good correlation was observed between in vitro GSH stability and in vitro cytotoxicity toward tumor cell lines. The prodrug-containing compounds were typically more potent against cells with relatively high intracellular GSH levels (e.g., KPL-4 cells). Several antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) were subsequently constructed from PBD dimers that incorporated selected disulfide-based prodrugs. Such HER2 conjugates exhibited potent antiproliferation activity against KPL-4 cells in vitro in an antigen-dependent manner. However, the disulfide prodrugs contained in the majority of such entities were surprisingly unstable toward whole blood from various species. One HER2-targeting conjugate that contained a thiophenol-derived disulfide prodrug was an exception to this stability trend. It exhibited potent activity in a KPL-4 in vivo efficacy model that was approximately three-fold weaker than that displayed by the corresponding parent ADC. The same prodrug-containing conjugate demonstrated a three-fold improvement in mouse tolerability properties in vivo relative to the parent ADC, which did not contain the prodrug.
