Effectiveness

How Delstrigo Affects PatientsTenofovir is used to treat HIV-1 and Hepatitis B infections by preventing the virus from making copies of itself. Laboratory tests have shown that it is effective against HIV-1 at concentrations between 0.04 μM to 8.5 μM. Tenofovir has been found to work well in combination with other drugs used to treat HIV-1, such as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors and non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, as well as protease inhibitors. Clinical studies have also confirmed that it can effectively fight HIV-1 in cell cultures.
How Delstrigo works in the bodyTenofovir is an antiretroviral medicine used to reduce the amount of HIV in the body. It works by blocking a special enzyme that HIV needs to reproduce. When this enzyme is blocked, the virus can't make as many copies of itself. Tenofovir is absorbed and converted to its active form which is a type of chemical called a nucleotide analog. This chemical then binds to the HIV enzyme and stops it from working. It also prevents the virus from making DNA. In some cases, HIV can become resistant to tenofovir, meaning that it is not as effective at stopping the virus from reproducing

Delstrigo Toxicity & Overdose RiskWhen it comes to breastfeeding, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that mothers with HIV-1 not breastfeed their infants to prevent transmission. Mothers should not breastfeed if they are taking tenofovir disoproxil. There have been no studies done on pregnant women taking tenofovir disoproxil, but studies done on rats and rabbits showed no signs of harm to the fetus at doses up to 14 and 19 times the recommended human dose. To monitor the effects of this drug on pregnant women, a registry has been created for healthcare providers to register patients. Tenofov
