Atazanavir is a drug that inhibits the growth of viruses. It is used to treat HIV infections and AIDS. HIV treatments always involve administering a combination of several drugs.
Atazanavir and the benefit of DNA analysis
The use of atazanavir can lead to hyperbilirubinemia (jaundice) in some cases. Jaundice is a yellow discoloration of the skin and/or the eyes, sometimes with itching.
The risk of side effects can be predicted to some extent on the basis of your genes. Preventive DNA analysis can therefore be an important tool in optimising your medication.
