DELAVIRDINE Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesCrystalline Solid
  • UsesA bisheteroarylpiperazine (BHAP) reverse transcriptase inhibitor
  • DefinitionChEBI: The amide resulting from the formal condensation of 5-[(methylsulfonyl)amino]-1H-indole-2-carboxylic acid and 4-amino group of 1-[3-(isopropylamino)pyridin-2-yl]piperazine, delavirdine is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor ith activity specific for HIV-1. Viral resistance emerges rapidly when delavirdine is used alone, so it is therefore used (as the methanesulfonic acid salt) with other antiretrovirals for combination therapy of HIV infection.
  • IndicationsDelavirdine (Rescriptor) is approved for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults and adolescents over age 16 as part of a combination therapy. Rash accompanied by pruritus is the most frequent adverse effect of this agent; however, it usually resolves within several weeks of treatment. Severe skin reactions are rare. Headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, and elevated hepatic enzymes also may be associated with delavirdine administration.
  • brand nameRescriptor (Agouron).
  • Acquired resistanceThe predominant amino acid substitution associated with resistance is at position 236 of the HIV reverse transcriptase.
  • General DescriptionDelavirdine (Rescriptor) must be used with at least twoadditional antiretroviral agents to treat HIV-1 infections.The oral absorption of delavirdine is rapid, and peakplasma concentrations develop in 1 hour. Extensive metabolismoccurs in the liver by CYP isozyme 3A (CYP3A) orpossibly CYP2D6. Bioavailability is 85%. Unlike nevirapine,which is 48% protein bound, delavirdine is more than98% protein bound. The half-life is 2 to 11 hours, andelimination is 44% in feces, 51% in urine, and less than 5%unchanged in urine. Delavirdine induces its own metabolism.Oral dosage forms are supplied as a 200-mg capsuleand a 100-mg tablet.
  • Pharmaceutical ApplicationsA complex piperazine derivative, formulated for oral administration.
  • PharmacokineticsOral absorption: Not known/available Cmax 400 mg oral thrice daily: c. 19.3 mg/L Cmin 400 mg oral thrice daily: c. 8.3 mg/L Plasma half-life: c. 6 h Volume of distribution: c. 0.7 L/kg Plasma protein binding: c. 98% Absorption and distribution
    It is rapidly absorbed following oral administration. Food has no significant effect on absorption. It is distributed predominantly into blood plasma and CNS penetration is poor. The semen:plasma ratio is about 0.02. It is not known if it is distributed into breast milk.
    Metabolism and excretion
    Several metabolites are formed by the CYP3A4 isoform of cytochrome P450 and it is a potent inhibitor of this enzyme system. Around 44% of the drug is recovered in feces and 51% in urine, about 5% as unchanged drug. Given the predominant hepatic metabolism, caution should be exercised in patients with impaired hepatic function.
  • Clinical UseTreatment of HIV disease in adults and children over 12 years of age (in combination with other antiretroviral agents)
    Delavirdine has fallen out of favor with the increasing preference for antiretrovirals than can be dosed twice or once daily.
  • Side effectsAround 18% of patients experience a diffuse, maculopapular, erythematous and often pruritic rash. Dose titration does not appear to reduce the incidence of this side effect. The rash usually first appears within 1 month of commencing therapy and resolves within 2 weeks without dose modification. In about 4% of cases it is severe enough to warrant discontinuation of treatment.
