Sofosbuvir acts against Hepatitis C Virus. It is categorized as a direct-acting antiviral agent (DAA). At a dose (3 times the recommended dose), Sofosbuvir does not prolong QTc to any clinically relevant extent. Sofosbuvir is specifically a nucleotide analog inhibitor. It inhibits HCV NS5B (non-structural protein 5B) RNA-dependent RNA polymerase. Sofosbuvir incorporates into HCV RNA by the NS5B polymerase, following intracellular metabolism in order to form the pharmacologically active uridine analog triphosphate (GS-461203). Sofosbuvir prevents HCV viral implication and replication by binding to the two Mg2+ ions that are present in HCV NS5B polymerase's GDD active site motif, thereby working to prevent further replication of HCV genetic material.
The active ingredient of Resof 400mg is Sofosbuvir. Sofosbuvir is used to treat viral infection of the liver. It helps to lower the multiplication of HCV.
