Lopinavir/ritonavir

  • The combination of lopinavir and ritonavir, HIV protease inhibitors, is one antiviral candidate for COVID-19. Lopinavir/ritonavir has exhibited some signs of effectiveness against severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). Lopinavir acts against the viral 3CL protease, and ritonavir increases drug bioavailability. Lopinavir/ritonavir is widely available and relatively easy to scale.
