Pharmacodynamics

Emtricitabine (Tavin-EM):- It is a synthetic nucleoside analog of cytidine, that is phosphorylated by cellular enzymes in order to form Emtricitabine (Tavin-EM) 5'-triphosphate. Emtricitabine works to inhibit the activity of the HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) by competing with the natural substrate deoxycytidine 5'-triphosphate and by being incorporated into nascent viral DNA, resulting in chain termination.

Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (Tavin-EM):- It is an acyclic nucleoside phosphonate diester analog of adenosine monophosphate. 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.
