The importance of hydroxyethylamine moiety has been studied extensively as a backbone replacement of amide bonds in the P1/P1' position of aspartyl protease inhibitors like Amprenavir [33], Nelfinavir [34], and Saquinavir [35].
Regimens containing saquinavir (SQV) and amprenavir (APV) were the only ones that did not undergo any modification (Figure 2).

The protease inhibitors (PIs) ritonavir, nelfinavir reduce while atazanavir, amprenavir and indinavir increase contraceptive steroid levels.
Treatment with anti-retroviral drugs had been prescribed for 119 (70.4%) infected patients, out of which 53 (44.5%) employed protease inhibitors: one of the infected patients was being treated with Tenofovir; two with Indinavir; 14 with Atazanavir, 13 with Nelfinavir and 23 with Ritonavir associated with another protease inhibitors (Lopinavir, Atazanavir, Amprenavir and Indinavir).
atazanavir, amprenavir and nelfinavir, develop specific primary mutations first without conferring cross-resistance to other PIs.
