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
