Determination of ritonavir, a new HIV protease inhibitor, in biological samples using reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography.
In addition, the HIV protease inhibitors also act as inhibitors of CYP3A4 to varying degrees (ritonavir > indinavir > nelfinavir > saquinavir in terms of inhibitory potency) (8, 9).
