Protease is an enzyme that causes proteolysis which means the breakdown of proteins into amino acids. Protease inhibitors are artificial drugs that block the action of HIV-1 protease that splits protein into smaller fragments. This division is needed for growth of viruses and their replication. Tissue plasminogen activator has been historically used in the treatment of ischemic stroke. Also it has an active role in removal of dead or damaged cells and tissues from wound and thereby accelerating healing. This is called wound debridement. Protease is also used in enzyme therapies such as the panchreatic enzyme replacement therapy. A particular type of protease derived from pineapple stem tissue is also used for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Side effects of drugs with Protease may include diarrhea, nausea, rash, vomiting, stomach pain, fever, headache, liver disorders, diabetes acceleration, abnormal cardiac function and similar other symptoms.
As there are both Protease inhibitors and Protease accelerators for either the purpose of stopping the spread of viruses in the body or to increase the breakdown of protein, the side effects vary according to which kind of medicine is administered. This drug should be consumed under the surveillance and supervision of an expert medical professional.

This medication works on the peptide bonds in the proteins. Trypsin and chymotrypsin are the two components of the active constituent. Chymotrypsin works in hydrophobic remnants like tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylalanine, and trypsin works on lysine and arginine remnants. Both these components posit a catalytic site in the S1 binding pocket.
