ABACAVIR



Abamune


Indication:


This drug is used with other HIV medications to help control HIV infection. It helps to decrease the amount of HIV in your body so your immune system can work better. This lowers your chance of getting HIV complications (such as new infections, cancer) and improves your quality of life. Abamune (Abacavir) belongs to a class of drugs known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors-NRTI.



Brand name:Abamune

Active Ingeridents:Abacavir

Company Name:Cipla

Package: 30 Tablets /Bottle

Strength :300mg

Mechanism of action:


Abamune (Abacavir) is a carbocyclic synthetic nucleoside analogue and an antiviral agent. Intracellularly, Abamune (Abacavir) is converted by cellular enzymes to the active metabolite carbovir triphosphate, an analogue of deoxyguanosine-5'-triphosphate (dGTP). Carbovir triphosphate inhibits the activity of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) both by competing with the natural substrate dGTP and by its incorporation into viral DNA. Viral DNA growth is terminated because the incorporated nucleotide lacks a 3'-OH group, which is needed to form the 5′ to 3′ phosphodiester linkage essential for DNA chain elongation.


Dosage and Administration:


Use Abamune (Abacavir) as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.
