171596-29-5 Name




TADALAFIL;CIALIS;IC 351;(6R,12AR)-6-(benzo[d][1,3]dioxol-5-yl)-2-methyl-2,3,12,12a-tetrahydropyrazino[1',2':1,6]pyrido;GF 196960;ICOS 351;Tildenafil;UK 336017


171596-29-5 Biological Activity


Tadalafil is a PDE5 inhibitor with an IC50 value of 1.8 nM.IC50 Value: 1.8±0.4nM [1]Target: PDE 5Tadalafil is marketed in pill form for treating erectile dysfunction(ED) under the name Cialis, and under the name Adcirca for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension. Tadalafil can elevate the level of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum and effectively improve ED of various causes and degrees.in vitro: Biochemical potencies (affinities) of these compounds for PDE5 determined by IC(50), K(D) (isotherm), K(D) (dissociation rate), and K(D) ((1/2) EC(50)), respectively, were the following: sildenafil (3.7 +/- 1.4, 4.8 +/- 0.80, 3.7 +/- 0.29, and 11.7 +/- 0.70 nM), tadalafil (1.8 +/- 0.40, 2.4 +/- 0.60, 1.9 +/- 0.37, and 2.7 +/- 0.25 nM); and vardenafil (0.091 +/- 0.031, 0.38 +/- 0.07, 0.27 +/- 0.01, and 0.42 +/- 0.10 nM). Thus, absolute potency values were similar for each inhibitor, and relative potencies were vardenafil >> tadalafil > sildenafil [1]. 0.5 ml tadalafil solutions with different concentrations were added (0.2, 0.1, 0.05 and 0.025 μg ml-1, respectively) into semen samples. In both groups, samples treated with 0.2 μg ml-1 tadalafil had significant increase in sperm motility after 2 h incubation [2].in vivo: The Tadalafil-treated group showed enhanced erectile function (intracavernosal pressure/mean arterial pressure) at 0.3, 0.5, 1, 3, and 5 Hz compared with diabetic group values at the respective frequencies (P <.05) that approached control values [3]. oral administration of tadalafil (20 mg) or sildenafil (100 mg) was given. In both groups, computer-assisted semen analysis parameters showed no significant difference. After the administration of tadalafil (2 h) and sildenafil (1 h), there was no significant difference observed in premature acrosome reaction incidence rate [2].Clinical trial: Study the Safety and Effectiveness of Tadalafil in Men With Problems Getting or Maintaining an Erection When Taken Prior to Desiring an Erection. Phase 3

171596-29-5 Description

Tadalafil, (6R-trans)-6-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl)-2,3,6,7,12,12a-hexahydro-2-methyl-pyrazino[1', 2' :1,6]pyrido[3,4-b]indole-1,4-dione (Cialis), is a potent PDE5 inhibitor.It received FDA approval for the treatment of erectiledysfunction in December 2003. Because of its half-life of17.5 hours, it is marketed as a 36-hour treatment. Tadalafil ispredominantly metabolized by hepatic enzymes, includingCYP3A4. The concomitant use of CYP3A4 inhibitors suchas ritonavir, indinavir, ketoconazole, as well as moderateCYP3A inhibitors such as erythromycin have been shown toresult in significant increases in tadalafil plasma levels.Much like sildenafil, tadalafil is under clinical investigationfor managing PAH.
