Nevirapine (previously known as BI-RG-587) is a dipyridodiazepinone derivative and a potent and highly specific inhibitor of the reverse transcriptase of HIV-1. It has no activity against HIV-2 or any other retrovirus. It is a member of a class of structurally diverse nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) compounds that share part, or all, of the same binding site on the HIV reverse transcriptase enzyme.
