PDE Inhibitors Understanding

PDE Inhibitors: Overview

Phosphodiesterase inhibitors (PDE inhibitors) are a class of agents acting on specific phosphodiesterase enzymes in target cells and are FDA approved for the management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, erectile dysfunction, pulmonary arterial hypertension, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and atopic dermatitis. Phosphodiesterase enzymes' essential role serves to separate the phosphate group from the target cell and decrease cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) or cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). The inhibition of these enzymes further prevents the degradation of cAMP or cGMP, exhibiting smooth muscle relaxation, vasodilatory, and bronchodilatory effects. Hypersensitivity is an absolute contraindication to all phosphodiesterase inhibitors. Nitrites are contraindicated to use alongside PDE-5 inhibitors: sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil, and avanafil, as they may result in severe hypotension. Relative contraindication such as pre-existing cardiovascular disease, resting hypotension, and anti-hypertensive use require evaluation before phosphodiesterase inhibitor use.

"PDE Inhibitors - Pipeline Insight, 2022" report by DelveInsight outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the PDE Inhibitors pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and PDE Inhibitors treatment guidelines. The assessment part of the report embraces, in depth PDE Inhibitors commercial assessment and clinical assessment of the pipeline products under development. In the report, detailed description of the drug is given which includes mechanism of action of the drug, clinical studies, NDA approvals (if any), and product development activities comprising the technology, PDE Inhibitors collaborations, licensing, mergers and acquisition, funding, designations and other product related details.

Report Highlights

The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence PDE Inhibitors R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve PDE Inhibitors.

PDE Inhibitors Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the PDE Inhibitors report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

PDE Inhibitors Emerging Drugs

ARQ-151: Arcutis Biotherapeutics

Topical roflumilast cream (ARQ-151) is a small molecule inhibitor of phosphodiesterase type 4 (PDE4), an intracellular enzyme that increases the production of proinflammatory mediators and decreases production of anti-inflammatory mediators, and has been implicated in a wide range of inflammatory diseases including psoriasis, eczema, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Topical roflumilast cream is a highly potent, selective PDE4 inhibitor in a convenient, once-daily formulation that Arcutis is developing for chronic plaque psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. Roflumilast is 25–300X more potent than the two other FDA-approved PDE4 inhibitors used in dermatology and has a well-established safety profile with more than 1 million patient years of exposure in clinical use.

Ensifentrine: Verona Pharma

Ensifentrine is a first-in-class, inhaled, dual inhibitor of the phosphodiesterase 3 (PDE3) and phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) enzymes. This dual inhibition enables it to combine bronchodilator and anti-inflammatory properties in one compound, differentiating it from existing drug classes used to treat COPD, including corticosteroids, beta2-agonists and anti-muscarinics. It is currently in Phase III stage of development for Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is being developed Verona Pharma.
