Latest research on Reyataz

Atazanavir (formerly known as BMS-232632) is an antiretroviral drug of the protease inhibitor (PI) class. Like other antiretrovirals, it is used to treat infection of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Atazanavir is distinguished from other PIs in that it can be given once-daily (rather than requiring multiple doses per day) and has lesser effects on the patient's lipid profile (the amounts of cholesterol and other fatty substances in the blood). Like other protease inhibitors, it is used only in combination with other HIV medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved atazanavir on June 20, 2003. [Wikipedia]

Reyataz dosage

Atazanavir (ATV) (or Reyataz) is generally used in combination with the boosting agent, Ritonavir (ATV/r), and is currently being developed as a fixed-dose combination with the boosting agent cobicistat (ATV/cobi). [source, 2015]
On Day 1 of the study (start of Phase I), subjects received a light meal before a single 400 mg (2 × 200 mg capsules) dose of ATV (Reyataz, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Bedfordview, Gauteng, South Africa) was administered to each with a 240 mL glass of water. [source, 2013]
