Answer

CYP3A4 Inhibitors

Boosting agents (eg, ritonavir, cobicistat) may be part of various ART drug regimens to inhibit metabolism of ART CYP3A substrates, resulting in increased systemic exposure and efficacy.

Cobicistat (Tybost)

CYP3A inhibitor. As a single agent, it is indicated to increase systemic exposure of atazanavir or darunavir (once-daily dosing regimen) in combination with other antiretroviral agents. It was originally approved as part of the combination product elvitegravir/cobicistat/emtricitabine/tenofovir (Stribild).
