    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. LamivirHBV (Lamivudine) belongs to a class of drugs known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors-NRTI.

    Mechanism of action:

    LamivirHBV (Lamivudine) is an analogue of cytidine. It can inhibit both types of HIV reverse transcriptase and also the reverse transcriptase of hepatitis B virus. It is phosphorylated to active metabolites that compete for incorporation into viral DNA. They inhibit the HIV reverse transcriptase enzyme competitively and act as a chain terminator of DNA synthesis. The lack of a 3'-OH group in the incorporated nucleoside analogue prevents the formation of the 5' to 3' phosphodiester linkage essential for DNA chain elongation, and therefore, the viral DNA growth is terminated.

    LamivirHBV (Lamivudine) is administered orally, and it is rapidly absorbed with a bio-availability of over 80%. Some research suggests that LamivirHBV (Lamivudine) can cross the bloodbrain barrier. LamivirHBV (Lamivudine) is often given in combination with zidovudine, with which it is highly synergistic. LamivirHBV (Lamivudine) treatment has been shown to restore zidovudine sensitivity of previously resistant HIV. LamivirHBV (Lamivudine) showed no evidence of carcinogenicity or mutagenicity in in vivo studies in mice and rats at doses from 10 to 58 times those used in humans.
