How Vonavir Tablet Works?
Vonavir Tablet containing emtricitabine, tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and efavirenz. Emtricitabine is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) that works by blocking the action of reverse transcriptase, an enzyme that is essential for the HIV virus to replicate. Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate is another NRTI that also works by inhibiting reverse transcriptase. Efavirenz is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) that interferes with the function of reverse transcriptase in a different way than NRTIs. Overall Vonavir Tablet can be effective at suppressing HIV replication and reducing the amount of HIV in the body (viral load).
