A client recently asked me if I had heard anything about the FDA approval process of Timpanivir. I have been checking every source I can think of and have not been able to find any information. DO you have any current information about the approval process and when this medication may become available?

Response from Dr. Young

Tipranavir (APTIVUS), a new generation protease inhibitor was approved by the US FDA this week. The drug will be used for very treatment-experienced patients with PI resistance and requires 200 mg of ritonavir, twice daily.

Stay tuned for more information. BY
