    Mechanism of action of Teevir Tablet

    Teevir (Emtricitabine (200mg) + Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (300mg) + Efavirenz (600mg)) tablet has two nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors and one non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor. Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate is an analogue of adenosine 5-monophosphate which is converted to tenofovir after hydrolysis after which tenofovir inhibits HIV-1 reverse transcriptase and HBV reverse transcriptase. Tenofovir competes with AMP as a substrate and competes to incorporate themselves into the DNA strand thus stops the replication of viral particles. Emtricibine is an analogue of cytidine is phosphorylated to its active form Emtricibine 5 triphosphate that inhibits the activity of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase and incorporates themselves into the DNA thus results in termination of replication process. Efavirenz present is a non-competitively inhibits HIV-1 reverse transcriptase. Thus, the active HIV molecule becomes inactive and further reproduction and multiplication process is stopped by the use of Teevir tablet.


    How Teevir Tablet works

    Teevir tablet contains Emtricitabine 200mg, Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300mg and Efavirenz 600mg. The active substance of tenofovir and Emtricibine competes with AMP and cytidine respectively and incorporates themselves into DNA strand and thus replication process of viral particle is terminated. The active substance of Efavirenz non competitively inhibits the reverse transcriptase enzyme of HIV particles. Thus, the active HIV molecule becomes inactive and further reproduction and multiplication process is stopped.
