Determination of phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors and analogs using high-performance liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection.


PMID 24668043

Abstract

A considerable number of erectile dysfunction products, and dietary supplements suspected of containing phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors, have been analyzed by the US Food and Drug Administration. Often these samples are found to contain the approved active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) such as sildenafil, tadalafil or vardenafil. However, analogs of these APIs have also been identified in many samples and products containing multiple PDE-5 inhibitors have also been found. A single high-performance liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection method has been developed for the determination of sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil and a number of commonly encountered analogs in pharmaceutical dosage forms and dietary supplement products, including tablets, capsules, bulk powders, troches and liquids. This method was designed as an alternative to methods developed for the determination of a single PDE-5 inhibitor. Using this protocol, 14 PDE-5 inhibitor compounds can be separated and determined in a single analysis.
