Our most up-to-date and comprehensive look at the medications approved by the Food And Drug Administration for the treatment of HIV and related conditions.

 

.

Protease-inhibitors

Help prevent replication of HIV; drugs in this class block activation of protease, an enzyme HIV needs to reproduce.

• Aptivus
Crixivan
Invirase
Kaletra
Lexiva
Norvir
Prezista
Reyataz
Viracept

 

Entry-and-fusion-inhibitors

Help prevent replication of HIV; drugs in this class help block HIV from entering T cells. They are always taken with other HIV medications.

Fuzeon
Rebetol
Selzentry

 

Integrase-inhibitors

Help prevent replication of HIV; drugs in this class block integrase, an enzyme HIV needs to reproduce. They are always taken with other HIV medications.

Isentress
Tivicay

 

Nucleoside-reverse-transcriptase-inhibitoes

Help prevent replication of HIV; drugs in this class block reverse transcriptase, an enzyme HIV needs to reproduce.

• Combivir
Emtriva
Epivir
Epzicom
Retrovir
Trizivir
Truvada
Videx EC
Viread
Zerit
Ziagen

 

Nonnucleoside-reverse-transcriptase-inhibitors-nnrtis

Help prevent replication of HIV; drugs in this class attack the same enzyme NRTIs do, but in a different way.

• Edurant
• Intelence
• Rescriptor
• Sustiva
• Viramune

 

Combination-drugs

Help prevent replication of HIV; drugs in this class combine two or more drugs that attack HIV in different ways.

Triumeq

 

 


THE 2017 HEPATITIS C TREATMENT GUIDE

 

Interferons

The oldest class of drug used to fight HVC does so two ways: it makes the hep C virus more visible to the immune system and it directly suppresses formation of new virus particles in the liver.

Intron A
• Pegasys
• PegIntron
• Roferon-A

 

S3-4a-protease-inhibitor

This class of drugs fight HCV by inhibiting the NS3-4A enzyme, an essential element in hep C’s replication.

• Olysio

 

Combination-drugs

Helping to prevent the replication of HCV, drugs in this class combine two or more medications that use different methods to attack the hepatitis C virus.

• Harvoni
• Technivie
• Viekira Pak
• Zepatier

 

Nucleoside-analogs

Often used in combination with Pegasys or PegIntron, these drugs inhibit RNA replication of the hepatitis C virus.

• Copegus

• Rebetol

 

Nucleotide-ns5b-polymerase-inhibitors_0

This class of drugs mimics the NS5B enzyme; incorporated into viral replication they cause RNA chain termination.

• Sovaldi

 

Nonstructural-protein-5a-ns5a-replication-complex-inhibitors

Inhibitors of NS5A block a protein essential for HCV to reproduce, thus stopping viral production at an early stage.

• Daklinza
