Yes, I know you are a little bit confused here as you all are thinking that how can a viagra cure cancer? But this may happen possibly as selective phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors commonly known by their brand names Viagra have the potential to be used in new drug trials.

Researcher Pan Pantziarka said: “In many respects, sildenafil is the ultimate repurposing success story. It was originally developed for angina, repurposed for erectile dysfunction and then again for pulmonary arterial hypertension, and now it has the potential to be repurposed again as an anti-cancer drug.”

Pan further explained: “Checkpoint inhibitors have radically altered the landscape in oncology, but there remain significant challenges in terms of increasing the number and duration of responses. Emerging evidence suggests that PDE5 inhibitors may be one mechanism for achieving this.”
