Atazanavir sulfate

Introduction: Atazanavir sulfate

Description of Atazanavir sulfate

Atazanavir sulfate: A synthetic antiviral agent. As a symmetric azapeptide agent structurally different from other HIV protease inhibitors, atazanavir selectively binds to and inhibits human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) protease, thereby preventing cleavage of the gag-pol viral polyprotein and resulting in the release of immature, noninfectious virions. This agent does not elevate serum lipids, a common problem with other protease inhibitors. (NCI04)
