A Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus, a form of virus, which infects human tissues of vagina, anal part, eyes or through break in skin. HIV is a silent killer disease which continues to deteriorate the body continuously by a declining immune system of the patient. AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is an advance stage of HIV infection. HIV virus attacks on the immune system of the body. HIV infection is not a contagious disease. HIV can spread from one person to another through:

  2. Integrase inhibitor such as Atazanavir, Darunavir acts as a structural analog of integrase enzyme and interferes in HIV RNA and DNA replication.

  3. Protease inhibitors such as Raltegravir, Elvitegravir act as a structural analog of protease enzyme responsible for protein formation in the virus.
