Mode of Action of Tipranavir in HIV

Tipranavir, or tipranavir disodium, is a nonpeptidic protease inhibitor (PI) manufactured by Boehringer-Ingelheim under the trade name Aptivus. It is administered with ritonavir in combination therapy to treat HIV infection and is given as two 250 mg capsules together with 200 mg of ritonavir twice daily.

Tipranavir has the ability to inhibit the replication of viruses that are resistant to other protease inhibitors and it recommended for patients who are resistant to other treatments. Resistance to tipranavir itself seems to require multiple mutations
