What is it

Tenvir-EM (Emtricitabine and Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate) is a combination drug consisting of two antiretroviral drugs, tenofovir and emtricitabine, used in treatment of HIV. This drug does not cure HIV or AIDS and it does not kill the virus once it enters the body, but it does prevent the infection from spreading and it prevents some of the complications associated with HIV. It can be used as a pre-exposure prophylaxis against HIV.


Classification and Mechanism of Action

Tenvir-EM (Emtricitabine and Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate) is a fixed combination drug that has two active ingredients – emtricitabine (trade name Emtriva), a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor and tenofovir, which is a nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor. These two drugs together work by slowing down the growth and multiplication of the HIV as they interfere with one of the crucial enzymes for the functioning of the virus. It works best when combined with other HIV drugs, such as protease inhibitors.
