Treating HIV infection with Isentress
Isentress tablets 400mg contain the antiretroviral drug raltegravir, an inhibitor of the viral integrase enzyme. HIV impairs the immune system by attacking specific immune cells called CD4+ cells that are involved in fighting infection, and this can lead to opportunistic life-threatening infection (infections that would not normally be harmful), including pneumonia, herpes virus infections, and Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infection. If too many CD4+ cells are destroyed this can result in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV is a retrovirus, which is an RNA virus that produces an enzyme called reverse transcriptase to transcribe its RNA into DNA. Another viral enzyme, integrase, is used to insert or integrate viral DNA into the host cell genome during the early phase of infection. Raltegravir in Isentress tablets 400mg works by blocking the action of the viral integrase and this inhibits viral replication and thereby inhibits production of new infectious viral particles. Isentress tablets 400mg are used in combination with other HIV medications to slow down the replication of HIV within your body but they do not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.
