How does Lopimune 200/50 mg work?
Lopimune tablets 200/50mg contains lopinavir and ritonavir, which are both HIV protease inhibitor and only effective against retroviruses same as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Retroviruses convert RNA to DNA, by the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT). The DNA of virus then integrated into the Human DNA of infected immune cells so that the virus will replicate. Most of the antiviral activity of Lopimune is due to lopinavir, which is an effective inhibitor of HIV protease, and inhibits cleavage of the Gag-Pol polyprotein, an essential protein in the development of active virus. The viral protease enzyme breaks down the Gag-Pol polyprotein during final stages of the replication cycle so that fully biologically active mature virus can be released to affect new cells. Protease cleavage inhabitation by Lopimune produces immature, non-contagious viral particles. The active ingredient Ritonavir in Lopimune tablets 200/50mg is included in conjugation not as a protease inhibitor but because it hinders the CYP3A-mediated metabolism (occurs in the liver) of lopinavir, it increases the plasma levels of lopinavir so that lopinavir can be used at a lower dose. Lopimune tablets are used in combination with other retrovirals that have a different mechanism of action, like emtricitabine and tenofovir, both nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) that work by blocking the functioning of RT, stops viral replication. The combined action of lopinavir and ritonavir in Lopimune tablets 200/50mg, in combination with other retroviral medication, inhibits the production of active HIV so that the viral load (amount of virus) is reduced.
