Protease inhibitor antiviral drugs

Antimetabolites and RT inhibitor antiviral drugs

  • Abacavir - a powerful nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor used to treat HIV and AIDS.
  • Adefovir Dipivoxil - nucleotide analog reverse transcriptase inhibitor (ntRTI) hepatitis B treatment.
  • Delavirdine - A non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase (RT) inhibitor active against HIV-1.
  • Didanosine - a dideoxynucleoside prevents phosphodiester bonds; it is an inhibitor of HIV replication.
  • Entecavir - a guanosine analog for treatment of hepatitis B.
  • Efavirenz - a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI)used to treat HIV.
  • Famciclovir - a guanine analogue, treats herpesviruses, mostly for shingles. A prodrug of penciclovir.
  • Foscarnet - inorganic pyrophosphate analog treats CMV retinitis, herpesviruses, and HIV.
  • Idoxuridine - a deoxyuridine analog that inhibits viral DNA synthesis.
  • Lamivudine - An RT inhibitor, zalcitabine analog used to treat HIV disease
  • Nevirapine - a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor used to treate HIV/AIDS
  • Oseltamivir (Tamaflu) - inhibits neuraminidase in the treatment of influenza infections.
  • Ribavirin - a nucleoside antimetabolite used against both RNA and DNA viruses.
  • Rimantadine - a cyclic amine derivate of adamantane, inhibits replication of influenza A, but not B.
  • Stavudine - A dideoxynucleoside analog, inhibits reverse transcriptase in HIV treatment.
  • Tenofovir - a nucleoside analog, reverse transcriptase inhibitor (nRTI),
  • Vidarabine - purine nucleoside analogue for the treatment of chickenpox (varicella) and herpes viruses
  • Zalcitabine - a dideoxynucleoside, prevents phosphodiester bonds, a potent inhibitor of HIV replication.
  • Zanamivir - a guanido-neuraminic acid used to inhibit neuraminidase, inhibits influenza.
  • Zidovudine - A dideoxynucleoside, prevents phosphodiester bonds, a potent inhibitor of HIV replication.
