Pharmacological action

Normalization of erectile function.

Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

Udenafit active agent is the selection reversible inhibitor of specific FDE-5 (phosphodiesterase 5 enzyme) which promotes tsGMF metabolism.

Has no the direct weakening effect on the cavernous isolated body, but during sexual stimulation increases the weakening effect of nitrogen oxide, oppressing FDE-5 answering in a cavernous body, for disintegration of tsGMF.

As a result of the influence unstriated muscles of arteries relax that promotes inflow of blood to fabrics of a man's generative organ and as a result leads to an erection.

Medicine does not work without sexual stimulation.

Results of the researches in vitro proved action of an udenafil as selection FDE-5 inhibitor. This enzyme is present at smooth muscles of vessels of internals, and also a cavernous body, at skeleton muscles, thrombocytes, lungs, a cerebellum and kidneys.

Udenafil 10000 times stronger inhibits FDE-5, than other phosphodiesterases which are localized in a liver, heart, blood vessels, a brain and other bodies. Also, it is 700 times more active in relation to FDE-5, than to FDE-6 which is in a retina of an eye and color scale, responsible for perception.

Udenafil does not oppress FDE-11 that predetermines lack of manifestations of a mialgiya, painful feelings in a lower back and cases of testicular toxicity.

Drug improves erectile function and a possibility of successful passing of sexual intercourse.

The effect comes after 30 minutes after the use and proceeds till 24 o'clock (in the presence of sexual stimulation).

Medicine does not cause authentically found change of systolic arterial pressure in healthy examinees (GARDEN) and diastolic arterial costing pressure (DAD) in comparison with the examinees accepting placebo in a position and lying (average maximum lowering makes, respectively 1,6/0,8 and 0,2/4,6 mm of a mercury column).

Udenafil does not lead to changes of recognition of a color range (blue/green), it is a consequence of its insignificant influence on FDE-6. Drug does not distort visual acuity, the size of a pupil and intraocular pressure, and also the electroretinogram.

In the conducted researches on male volunteers its clinically significant action on concentration and amount of sperm, as well as on integrity and mobility of spermatozoa was not proved.


At oral administration udenafit it is soaked up quickly enough. In a blood plasma its maximum concentration is reached on average in 60 minutes (from 30 to 90 minutes). T1/2 (elimination half-life) of about 12 hours.

High linkng (93,9%) of drug with proteins of a blood plasma is characteristic that significantly increases the period of its effective action till 24 o'clock, after use single (100 mg) doses.

The food with high concentration of fats does not exert significant impact on absorbability.

Alcohol intake (alcohol of 40%) in number of 112 ml in combination with udenafily in a dose of 200 mg, significantly does not influence its efficiency.


The metabolism generally proceeds with the participation of a P450 cytochrome CYP3A4 isoenzyme.


At healthy examinees the general clearance equals 755 ml/min.

After oral administration it is removed with a stake, in the form of metabolites.

Does not kumulirut in the patient's organism.

In a daily dose of 100 mg – 200 mg accepted within 10 days (at research on healthy people) serious changes of pharmacokinetics are not revealed.
