Atazanavir, also known as Reyataz, is a type of medicine called a protease inhibitor (PI). PIs block protease, a protein that HIV needs to make more copies of itself. Atazanavir was approved by the FDA on June 20, 2003, for use with other antiretroviral medication in the treatment of HIV infection. This medicine does
not cure or prevent HIV infection or AIDS and
does not reduce the risk of passing the virus to
Antiviral drugs can make antifungals work again.
Researchers presented an overview of factors influencing emerging infectious diseases. They also highlighted the importance of molecular dynamic (MD) simulations and molecular docking (MDO) analysis for combating these diseases.

Bilirubin, a yellow-orange pigment, is formed after the breakdown of red blood cells and is eliminated by the liver. It's not only a sign of a bruise, it may provide cardiovascular benefits, according to a large-scale epidemiology study.
A Korean research team from KAIST developed a computational framework, DeepDDI, that accurately predicts and generates 86 types of drug-drug and drug-food interactions as outputs of human-readable sentences, which allows in-depth understanding of the drug-drug and drug-food interactions.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Mavyret (glecaprevir and pibrentasvir) to treat adults with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes 1-6 without cirrhosis (liver disease) or with mild cirrhosis, including patients with moderate to severe kidney disease and those who are on dialysis.
Yesterday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave its approval to Mavyret (glecaprevir and pibrentasvir) for the treatment of adults with chronic hepatitis C infection. These patients are infected with the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) of genotypes 1-6 and are those that have not developed liver cirrhosis or those who have developed mild cirrhosis. The approval for Mavyret was given to AbbVie Inc.
The antiretroviral (ARV) drug atazanavir—sometimes included in treatments to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission during pregnancy—may have small but significant effects on infant development, reports a study in the journal AIDS, official journal of the International AIDS Society.
The Medicines Patent Pool today announced a new licensing agreement with AbbVie, a global biopharmaceutical company, that seeks to address future demands for HIV treatment Lopinavir/Ritonavir (LPV/r) in South Africa and across Africa. The agreement has been reached in particular to help ensure sustainability of long-term supply of LPV/r, the most widely used second-line HIV treatment in South Africa and across Africa.
The Medicines Patent Pool today announced a collaboration with the University of Liverpool and a licence for the university's Solid Drug Nanoparticle (SDN) technology to accelerate the development of WHO-recommended antiretrovirals as nanomedicines.
Results from the first phase 3 HIV study to enroll only women show improved safety and efficacy of the drug Stribild over multi-pill antiretroviral drug regimens. The research was presented at ASM's 55th Interscience Conference of Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC/ICC).
AbbVie receives Health Canada approval for HOLKIRA PAK (ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir film-coated tablets; dasabuvir film-coated tablets), an all-oral, short-course (12 weeks for the majority of patients), interferon-free treatment, with or without ribavirin (RBV), for the treatment of patients with genotype 1 (GT1) chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, including those with cirrhosis.
Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a specialty biopharmaceutical company, today announced that data were presented regarding the use of STENDRA® (avanafil) tablets for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) at the 20th Annual Fall Scientific Meeting of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) held in Miami from November 20-23, 2014.
