Flashcards in Antiviral Agents Deck (21)
What does neuraminidase do?
It cleaves the N-acetyl neuraminic from host-cell receptors, leading to viral budding.
______ and ________ inhibit neuraminidase.
How effective is Oseltamivir in preventing influenza?
70% - 90%
All of the -amivir drugs act to inhibit ______.
Zanamivir can impair ___________.
lung function, by inducing cough and bronchospasm
Amantadine and rimantadine both act on _________.
viral h+ pumps, which are required for uncoating in the cytoplasm
Rimantadine cannot get into the _______ very well.
Valacyclovir, acyclovir, and ganciclovir all work by ________.
creating acyclovir triphosphate, which mimics DNA and disrupts viral DNA production
All of the acyclovir drugs only work on ________.
viruses that utilize thymidine kinase (this is the first phosphorylation step)
Acyclovir is ________ eliminated.
renally (thus adjust dose in infants and those with renal impairment)
Ganciclovir works in a similar way to _______, but has the side effects of ______.
valacyclovir and acyclovir; bone marrow depression
Cidofovir works by _________, but it has the negative side effect of ________.
mimicking nucleotides that viral DNA polymerases use; nephrotoxicity
What two drugs block HIV entry?
Enfuvirtide and maraviroc
What drug blocks HSV entry?
Palivizumab blocks the entry of which virus?
Valacyclovir requires a __________ to be activated.
phase I esterase
Which two viral-DNA disruptors can only be given topically?
Penciclovir and vidarabine-trifluridine
RSV can be treated with _____, a nucleoside analog, but because of adverse effects should be restricted to the more severe cases.
What two drugs are used to treat CMV?
