  1. neuraminidase inhibitors drugs
    zanamivir (Relenza), oseltamivir (Tamiflu), peramivir
  2. neuraminidase inhibitors MOA
    viruses have 2 surface proteins. hemagglutinins are responsible for the binding and uptake of the virus, while neuraminidases are responsible for release of new virus (via sialic acid cleavage). NIs block this cleavage, preventing release of new virus.
  3. neuraminidase kinetics

  4. neuraminidase indications
  5. neuraminidase SE

  6. uncoating inhibitors drugs
    amantadine (Symmetrel), rimantadine (Flumadine)
  7. uncoating inhibitors MOA
    flu A: thought to prevent influx of protons through viral M2 channels that causes the pH-dependent process of RNA-protein coat dissociation. parkinsons: amantadine may increase dopamine release and block ACh receptors, enhancing motor control.

  33. polyenes drugs
    amphotericin B, Nystatin
  34. polyenes MOA
    bind sterols, such as ergosterol found in fungal cell membranes (puts pores in membrane, ions leak, cell dies). also b/c it binds sterols, also binds cholesterols causing its SEs.
  35. polyenes kinetics
    amphotericin B has long half life (15 days) b/c it is accumulated in tissues and released slowly. Nystatin too toxic for parenteral, but works good for topical/oral rinse due to low absorption.
