inhibitor

[in′hib·əd·ər]
(aerospace engineering)
A substance bonded, taped, or dip-dried onto a solid propellant to restrict the burning surface and to give direction to the burning process.
(chemistry)
A substance which is capable of stopping or retarding a chemical reaction; to be technically useful, it must be effective in low concentration.

Inhibitor

 

a circuit having m + n inputs and a single output, at which a signal can appear only when there are no signals on the m inputs (inhibiting). The other n inputs (principal) form one of the two logic connections, “AND” or “OR.” Inhibitors are used extensively in computers. They are very often understood to be a circuit having a single principal input and a single inhibiting input. A signal appears at the output of such a circuit when a signal is present on the principal input but there is none on the inhibiting input. Such an inhibitor is called an anticoincidence gate; its conventional representation is given in Figure 1.

16) The multivariate analysis showed an independent association of female sex with a lower rate of resistance mutations to PI, NRTI, IAS - 3 class, and a higher GSS.
Several comparative studies involving treatment-naive patients showed that rates of viral success (measured by the proportion of viral undetectability) in regimens containing two NRTIs + NNRTI were mostly equivalent than rates obtained in groups using regimens containing PI or PI / r (BARTLETT et al.
However, there were six deaths during follow-up among patients randomized to receive NRTIs, compared with none among the omit-NRTI patients.
resistance develops slowly) in PI-naive patients, it is very likely that virological suppression will be achieved with good adherence, even if the 2 NRTIs used in second-line are partially compromised by NRTI resistance mutations (Tables 4 and 5).

This level of suppression was more common in the NRTI group (81%) than in the protease-inhibitor group (69%) at delivery, but the two groups did not differ during breast-feeding (83% and 77%, respectively).
Superior activity of apricitabine compared to 3TC over 21 days in treatment experienced HIV-1 infected patients failing therapy withM184V and NRTI resistance.
Cohen said the new trial follows earlier studies suggesting that Reverser does not appear to cause mitochondrial toxicity or elevated lactate levels--side effects associated with other NRTIs.
I was infected with a virus two years ago that is resistant to all but three of the current meds available (in the NRTI class).
The agents in this class include: zidovudine (Retrovir[R]), didanosine (Videx[R]), zalcitabine (Hivid[R]), stavudine (Zerit[R]), lamivudine (Epivir[R]), lamivudine/ zidovudine (Combivir[R]), and the newest NRTI, abacavir (Ziagen[R]).
