Avanafil 2.00: The 2nd generation of PDE5-Is has begun

Chair: Vincenzo G. Mirone, Naples, Italy

Erectile dysfunction, a highly prevalent cause of sexual dysfunction in men, is effectively treated with a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor in most cases. However, in a non-negligible number of cases, the patient or partner’s sexual dissatisfaction with the treatment results in discontinuation. A second-generation PDE5 inhibitor, Avanafil, was developed to address this deficiency and was recently approved in the EU. Clinical results have shown that Avanafil is a better tolerated treatment, even at the highest dosage, with rapid and sustained efficacy. Thus Avanafil provides an innovative, on-demand solution for erectile dysfunction, allowing patients to respond immediately to their partner’s wishes and obviating the need to plan sex in advance.
