Atazanavir Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Atazanavir is an antiretroviral drug of the protease inhibitor (PI) class. It is used to treat infection of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Atazanavir is the first PI approved for once-daily dosing, and also appears to be less likely to cause lipodystrophy and elevated cholesterol as side effects.Atazanavir selectively inhibits the virus-specific processing of viral Gag and Gag-Pol polyproteins in HIV-1 infected cells by binding to the active site of HIV-1 protease, thus preventing the formation of mature virions. Atazanavir is not active against HIV-2.
