What wil make Intrgrase Inhibitors different from all other drugs?

(1/1)

Ihavehope:
Just curious. Read that Merch may have Intergrace Inhibitors out in the market soon. Is it a new type of Anti_hIv drig?

gerry:
It's new in the sense that it's point of action in the HIV life cycle is different from the other drugs that are available now.  It's also quite potent and would be useful for people who have developed resistance to other currently available classes of antiretrovirals.

Here's a nice link that explains HIV life cycle and which points in the life cycle in which the drugs are active.
