    • Foscarnet

  15. Adverse drug rxn w/ Ganciclovir

  24. Which drug is not recommended for patients with underlying airway disease?
  25. Resistance to oseltamivir may be associated w/ point mutations in the viral ____ or ____ genes.
    Hemagglutinin, neuraminidase
  26. Viral point mutations in hemagglutinin or neuramindiase and provide resistance to
  27. In contrast, to the tx of patients w/ chonric HBV infection, the primary goal of tx in patients with HCV infection is _____
  28. Goal of HBV therapy
    Sustain suppression (prevent complications, slow progression of hepatic disease, reduce the need for liver transplantation)
  29. Major mechanism of action of IFN-a
    Inhibition of translation
  30. What is the most powerful tx against HBV and C?
    IFN-a (antiviral properties)
  31. What drug should not be administered w/ didanosine?  Why?
    IFN-a, because of risk of hepatic failure
  32. IFN-a potential drug-drug interactions
    Theophylline and methadone levels may be increased
  33. Two drugs used in combination with IFN-a
    • Lamivudine (HBV)- also used to treat HIV
    • Ribavirin (HCV)
  34. Lamivudine w/ coinfection w/ HIV increase the risk of
  35. Name 2 Entry Inhibitors
    • Enfuvirtide (T-20)
    • Maraviroc
  36. Binds specifically and slectively to host protein CCR5.  Treats HIV-1 infection in those who are experiencing virological failure due to resistance to other antiretroviral
  37. Maraviroc binds to ___ and treats____
    CCR5, HIV-1 infxn that exhivits resistance to other antiretrovirals
  38. Resitance to what drug is associated w/ one or more mutations in the V3 loop of gp120?
  39. Maraviroc is contraindicated in pts. w/ ?
