Amprenavir (Agenerase)


WHAT IS AMPRENAVIR?

 


Amprenavir is a drug used as part of antiretroviral therapy (ART). It is also called Agenerase. It was manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.

Manufacture of amprenavir was discontinued in October 2007. It is being replaced by fosamprenavir (see fact sheet 448). Fosamprenavir is a pro-drug of amprenavir. This means that when fosamprenavir is taken, it is broken down to produce amprenavir.
