Vardenafil produced statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in all erectile function parameters. The International Index of Erectile Function erectile function domain score was 22.9 with vardenafil compared to 14.9 with placebo. The HAM-D score was lower in the vardenafil group (7.9) than in the placebo group (10.1). Treatment with vardenafil was the most important predictor for return to normal erectile function. Improvement in International Index of Erectile Function erectile function domain score was the most important predictor of remission in depressive symptoms.

An analytical procedure for selective extraction of sildenafil and vardenafil in herbal dietary supplements (HDSs) has been set up by using the magnetic molecularly imprinted polymers (MMIPs) as the extraction and clean-up materials, followed by high performance liquid chromatography-ultraviolet (HPLC-UV). The MMIPs were prepared by a surface molecular imprinting technique, using Fe(3)O(4) magnetite as a magnetically susceptible component, sildenafil as template molecule, 2-(trifluoromethyl) acrylic acid (TFMAA) as functional monomer, ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) as polymeric matrix components. The MMIPs were characterized by transmission electron microscope (TEM), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM), respectively. The heterogeneity of the MMIPs was modeled with the Freundlich isotherm equation. The resulting MMIPs had high recognition ability and fast binding kinetics for sildenafil. The MMIPs were used as dispersive solid-phase extraction (DSPE) materials to selectively extract sildenafil and vardenafil from HDSs, the contents of sildenafil and vardenafil were found to be 8.05 and 3.86 μg g(-1), respectively, and the average recoveries in spiked HDSs were 70.91-91.75% with a relative standard deviation (R.S.D.) below 7%. The MMIPs were successfully used to selectively enrich and determine sildenafil and vardenafil from HDSs.

Significant advances in the pharmacologic treatment of erectile dysfunction (ERD) have occurred in recent years, most notably the introduction of sildenafil, the first oral selective phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor, in 1998. Sildenafil quickly gained acceptance by the medical community and the public because of its broad efficacy for different types of ERD and its ease of use. Two PDE5 inhibitors, vardenafil and tadalafil, have since joined sildenafil to compete in the ERD market. A review was conducted by the Drug Information Service of a pharmacy benefits manager (PBM) to determine the relative merits and place in therapy of commonly used ERD drugs as part of drug formulary management process and decision making by the Pharmacy & Therapeutics (P&T) committee.

A Micellar electrokinetic capillary chromatography method is proposed for the determination of sildenafil, vardenafil and tadalafil, which are employed in oral therapy for erectile dysfunction. Optimum conditions for the separation were investigated. A background electrolyte solution consisting of 10 mM phosphate buffer adjusted to pH 12.0, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) 25 mM, hydrodynamic injection, and 25 kV as separation voltage were used. Relative standard deviations (R.S.D.s) were 1.0, 1.0, 0.4% and 2.9, 2.9, 1.9% for migration time and corrected peak area (CPA) (n = 9) for sildenafil, vardenafil and tadalafil, respectively. Detection limits obtained for the three drugs ranged from 0.19 to 0.61 mg L(-1). A linear concentration range between 1 and 20 mg L(-1) was obtained. A ruggedness test of this method was checked using the fractional factorial model of Plackett-Burman, in which the influence of six factors at three different levels was tested on different electrophoretic results: resolution and corrected peak area. The statistical evaluation of the electrophoretic results was achieved by Youden and Steiner method. The described method is rapid, sensitive and rugged and it was tested in the pharmaceutical formulations analysis obtaining recoveries between 98 and 107% respect to the nominal content.

Vardenafil was effective in relaxing precontracted rabbit cavernosal strips (IC50 54 +/- 18 nM). This relaxing activity was partially antagonized with 10 mM L-NAME, increasing the IC50 to 620 +/- 81 nM. Vardenafil significantly increased (more than 4 times) relaxation of precontracted rabbit cavernosal strips to EFS at 10 nM. In anaesthetized rats, erectile responses were significantly facilitated 3 and 13 min after 0.1 and 1 mg/kg vardenafil was administered. In contrast, 1 mg/kg sildenafil only significantly increased erectile responses at 3 min post-injection.

The pathology of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is characterized by vascular vasoconstriction, smooth muscle cell proliferation, and thrombosis. Experimental studies have shown the beneficial effect of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors on pulmonary vascular remodeling and vasodilatation. Randomized clinical trials in monotherapy or combination therapy have been conducted in PAH with sildenafil and tadalafil which significantly improve clinical status, exercise capacity and hemodynamics of PAH patients. Combination therapy of PDE-5 inhibitors with prostacyclin analogs and endothelin receptor antagonists may be helpful in management of PAH. The third PDE-5 inhibitor, vardenafil, is currently being investigated in PAH. Side effects are usually mild and transient and include headache, flushing, nasal congestion, digestive disorders, and myalgia.

A total of 24 patients with erectile dysfunction underwent color Doppler ultrasound before and after intracavernous injection of 60 mg papaverine with genital and audiovisual sexual stimulation. Peak flow and end diastolic velocity were measured in the recorded waveforms obtained 0, 1, 5, 10 and 20 min after injection. The patients also underwent color Doppler ultrasound after a 10-mg oral dose of vardenafil with genital and audiovisual sexual stimulation and at least 5 days after the prior examination. The same parameters were measured at 30, 45, 60, 75 and 90 min after the drug administration. We compared the results with the values obtained after papaverine injection.

Flushing is one of the most common vasodilation-related adverse effects associated with both nitrates and phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of orchidectomy and ovariectomy on isosorbide dinitrate-, sildenafil-, vardenafil- and tadalafil-induced flushing of tail-skin in mice. Both orchidectomy and ovariectomy markedly increased the tail-skin temperature, a good parameter of flushing, induced by isosorbide dinitrate (500 microg/kg, i.p.). These observations suggest that both testosterone withdrawal and estrogen withdrawal are risk factors for isosorbide dinitrate-induced flushing. In contrast, sildenafil (100 mg/kg, p.o.)-, vardenafil (10 mg/kg, p.o.)- and tadalafil (40 mg/kg, p.o.)-induced flushing of tail-skin in mice was aggravated by ovariectomy but not by orchidectomy. Orchidectomized male mice, but not ovariectomized female mice, showed significantly lower levels of PDE5 mRNA expression in tail artery compared with those of sham-operated mice. The present findings suggest that estrogen withdrawal, but not testosterone withdrawal, is a risk factor for PDE5 inhibitor-induced flushing. These gender differences in the vascular adverse reactions of PDE5 inhibitors may be interpreted as occurring due to differences in the levels of PDE5 mRNA expression in peripheral arteries.

The plasma vardenafil concentration increased rapidly and exhibited a median time to maximum plasma concentration (t(max)) of 1 h and a mean elimination half-life (t(1/2)) of 3.4 h. The geometric mean and standard deviation of (1) the peak plasma concentration (C(max)) was 21.4 ± 1.7 μg/L, (2) the normalized C(max) (C(max, norm)) 79.1 ± 1.6 g/L, (3) the area under the time-concentration curve (AUC) 71.5 ± 1.6 μg · h/L and (4) the normalized AUC (AUC(norm)) 261.6 ± 1.7 g · h/L. Patients co-medicated with bosentan reached t(max) later and had a 90% reduction of C(max), C(max, norm), AUC and AUC(norm).

All three PDE5 inhibitors caused significant pulmonary vasorelaxation, with maximum effects being obtained after 40 to 45 min (vardenafil), 60 min (sildenafil), and 75 to 90 min (tadalafil). Sildenafil and tadalafil, but not vardenafil, caused a significant reduction in the pulmonary to systemic vascular resistance ratio. Significant improvement in arterial oxygenation (equally to NO inhalation) was only noted with sildenafil.
