Description: Tipranavir is a nonpeptidic protease inhibitor. 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. Tipranavir was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on June 22, 2005, and was approved for pediatric use on June 24, 2008. Like lopinavir and atazanavir, it is very potent and is effective in salvage therapy for patients with some drug resistance.
