Nitrogen insertion in the core also enhanced potency through a design hypothesis based on the work of Wang and Hobza [42]. This team had calculated p–p interaction energies for a series of benzene (considered a Phe surrogate in this PDE5 case) and nitrogen-containing heterocyclic dimers and found that the interaction energy of the complex increases in relation to the nitrogen content of the heterocycles. In vitro metabolic stability assays were good predictors of template effects in PK studies.

Having extensively mined both basic and neutral chemotype profiles and failing to secure the all-around profile demanded by a quality development candidate, an acidic chemotype strategy was considered. The surprising hERG activity seen in the neutral template pointed toward a change to acids in an effort to counter this target activity. Acidic chemotypes have little track record in terms of hERG ion channel activity, and the medicinal chemistry challenges for the series would more likely be found in securing good pharmacokinetics, given the low volume of distribution and the potential non-P450-mediated clearance processes found in acids.

The initial, conservative, second-generation agents focused on staying close to sildenafil’s pyrazolopyrimidinone template. Despite the apparent success of clinical candidate nominations, the conversion of the sildenafil template into a highly potent and selective template came at the price of optimal human pharmacokinetics. 4), both displayed nonlinear oral pharmacokinetics to some degree across the dosing ranges investigated. Ultimately neither compound was deemed sufficiently optimized for progression beyond Phase 2 trials as a chronically administered PDE5 inhibitor.
