Kaletra (Lopinavir/Ritonavir) is an antiretroviral medication used to treat human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) infection in adults and children over the age of 14 years old. Kaletra is combined with other HIV medications to help control HIV infection. Lopinavir and Ritonavir belong to a class of medication known as protease inhibitors. This medication works by affecting an enzyme called protease, which is used by HIV-infected cells to make new viruses. This medication decreases the amount of HIV in your body so your immune system can work better, which lowers your chances of HIV complications and improves your quality of life. Kaletra is not a cure for HIV or AIDS.
