    Ribahep ( Ribavirin) is used in combination with other antiviral medications to treat chronic (long-lasting) hepatitis C, a viral infection of the liver. Chronic hepatitis C infection can cause serious liver problems such as scarring (cirrhosis), or liver cancer. Ribahep ( Ribavirin) works by reducing the amount of hepatitis C virus in your body, which may help your liver recover. 

    Mechanism of action:

    Ribahep ( Ribavirin) is readily phosphorylated intracellularly by adenosine kinase to Ribahep ( Ribavirin) mono-, di-, and triphosphate metabolites. Ribahep ( Ribavirin) triphosphate (RTP) is a potent competitive inhibitor of inosine monophosphate (IMP) dehydrogenase, viral RNA polymerase and messenger RNA (mRNA) guanylyltransferase (viral) and can be incorporated into RNA in RNA viral species.. Guanylyltranserase inhibition stops the capping of mRNA. These diverse effects result in a marked reduction of intracellular guanosine triphosphate (GTP) pools and inhibition of viral RNA and protein synthesis. Ribahep ( Ribavirin) is also incorporated into the viral genome causing lethal mutagenesis and a subsequent decrease in specific viral infectivity.
