DescriptionRilpivirine is non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) which is used for the treatment of HIV-1 infections in treatment-naive patients. It is a diarylpyrimidine, a class of molecules that resemble pyrimidine nucleotides found in DNA. Because of its flexible chemical structure, resistance of rilpivirine is less likely to develop than other NNRTI's. FDA approved on May 20, 2011.
SaltsRilpivirine Hydrochloride
Brand Names
  • Complera
  • Edurant
  • Odefsey
Affected OrganismHuman Immunodeficiency Virus
IndicationTreatment of HIV-1 infections in treatment-naive patients with HIV-1 RNA ≤100,000 copies/mL in combination with at least 2 other antiretroviral agents.
PharmacologyRilpivirine is the most potent NNRTI and has a EC50 of 0.73 nM in vitro against HIV-1 because its chemical structure allowed for better binding to reverse transcriptase.
Mechanism of actionRilpivirine is an NNRTI which binds to reverse transcriptase which results in a block in RNA and DNA- dependent DNA polymerase activities. One such activity is HIV-1 replication. Intracellular phosphorylation is not necessary for its antiviral activity. Because of the structure of rilpivirine is flexible around the aromatic rings, the molecule can have multiple conformations so that can bind to residues in the reverse transcriptase enzyme which have a lower mutation rate.
Route of administrationOral
  • Antiinfectives for Systemic Use
  • Antivirals for Systemic Use
  • BCRP/ABCG2 Inhibitors
  • Combined Inhibitors of CYP3A4 and P-glycoprotein
