Mechanism Action Of Hepcvir 400mg?
Hepcvir tablets 400mg contain sofosbuvir, a direct-acting antiviral agent that is used in combination with other antiviral medications to treat chronic HCV infection.
Sofosbuvir in Hepcvir tablets 400mg is a direct-acting nucleotide analogue inhibitor that blocks the action of the HCV NS5B polymerase, an enzyme that is essential to viral replication. It is a nucleotide prodrug that is converted to its active form, the uridine analog triphosphate (GS-461203), which is incorporated into HCV RNA by the action of NS5B polymerase.
This action of sofosbuvir in Hepcvir L tablets causes chain termination of viral RNA synthesis thereby inhibiting viral replication. Sofosbuvir in Hepcvir tablets is an effective treatment for HCV infection only when used in combination with at least one other antiviral medication.
These include interferon, which is a chemical messenger produced by host cells in response to infection by various pathogens, including viruses that stimulates the body’s own immune response, as well as directly inhibiting viral replication in infected cells.
Ribavirin is a synthetic ribonucleic analogue and is incorporated into viral RNA blocking RNA synthesis; however, it does not have any antiviral activity when used alone.
The specific combination therapy regimen for HCV infection depends on the HCV genotype and the degree of liver damage due to the infection.
The combination of Hepcvir tablets 400 mg and ribavirin or ribavirin with interferon lowers the amount of hepatitis C virus in the blood and may also lead to a cure of HCV infection over a number of weeks.
