Lamivudine, Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, and Efavirenz are active ingredients that are used in the treatment of HIV, and together they form a tablet known as T-Lamirenz and these ingredients work in a combination to prevent HIV infection. This tablet belongs to a class of medications known as NRTIs (nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors). T-Lamirenz boosts your immune system to fight against the infection.
Lamivudine (T-Lamirenz):- It is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor with activity against HIV Type 1 and Hepatitis B Virus in order to disrupt viral DNA synthesis. When phosphorylated, this compound can form active metabolites that compete for incorporation into viral DNA. Through this process, Lamivudine metabolites work to inhibit the activity of the HIV reverse transcriptase enzyme. They act as a chain terminator of DNA synthesis.
Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (T-Lamirenz):- This is particularly a nucleoside (acyclic) phosphonate diester analog of adenosine monophosphate. It usually requires initial diester hydrolysis in order to convert it to tenofovir and subsequent phosphorylations through cellular enzymes and form tenofovir diphosphate. It works to inhibit the activity of HIV-1 RT by competing with the natural substrate deoxyadenosine 5′-triphosphate and, after incorporation into DNA, by DNA chain termination.
Efavirenz (T-Lamirenz):- It is an oral non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor. This compound is a synthetic purine derivative. It is similar to zidovudine stavudine. It was originally approved to treat HIV infections and AIDS in patients who failed therapy with zidovudine.
