Cobicistat is a cytochrome P450 3A (CYP3A) inhibitor indicated to increase systemic exposure of atazanavir or darunavir, as a once daily dosing regimen, in combination with other antiretroviral (ARV) agents in the treatment of HIV-1 infection. Boosting systemic exposure of ARVs while minimizing dosage allows for better treatment outcomes and a decreased side effect profile. Cobicistat is a mechanism-based inhibitor that acts as a pharmacokinetic enhancer by inhibiting CYP3A isoforms. Inhibition of CYP3A-mediated metabolism by cobicistat increases the systemic exposure of CYP3A substrates atazanavir and darunavir; therefore, enabling increased anti-viral activity at a lower dosage. Cobicistat does not have any anti-HIV activity on its own.
