Description

Application

Adefovir has been used to study its anti-retro viral effect on porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV) activity.

Packaging

10, 50 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Adefovir is an antiviral drug that after intracellular conversion to adefovir diphosphate inhibits hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA polymerase (reverse transcriptase).

Adefovir, also known as 9-(2-phosphonylmethoxyethyl)adenine (PMEA), is an acyclic nucleoside phosphonate. It has a potential to hinder the in vitro replication of several retroviruses such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 and HIV-2, simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), simian AIDS-related virus (SRV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Thus, Adefovir may be used as a therapeutic for various retrovirus infections including acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
