Capsid Inhibitor(s)

Audio

Capsid inhibitors are a class of drugs that interfere with HIV capsid, a protein shell that protects HIV's genetic material and enzymes needed for replication. Capsid inhibitors can disrupt HIV capsid during multiple stages of the viral life cycle. Currently, capsid inhibitors are still under clinical investigation, and there are no capsid inhibitors approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
