Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Nitrosoprodenafil is a novel nitrosated analogue of the PDE5 inhibitor sildenafil, that acts as a prodrug releasing aildenafil (methisosildenafil; PubChem CID 16721107) and NO . NO-induced effects on vasodilation are synergistic with inhibition of PDE5 action. This type of compound has been avoided by conventional pharmaceutical companies because of the serious risk of causing a life-threatening drop in blood pressure, and because of the hepatotoxicity of nitrosamines.
