HIV PROTEASE INHIBITORS
Winter Term Project
Grace Kim 98'
tutorial includes a general overview of the life cycle of the Human Immunodeficiency
Virus (HIV) as well as information about the new drugs called protease
inhibitors which fight HIV. HIV proteases are necessary for HIV to create
new viruses that can infect other cells. Thus, inhibiting these proteases
leads to a decrease in infectious HIV and an increase in CD4 cells. Although,
protease inhibitors are not a cure for AIDS, the uses of these drugs in
combination with nucleoside analogs greatly increases the rate of survival.
