Description

Estiva (Efavirenz) capsule a prescription medicine. It is used in the treatment of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) infection. It boosts up the immunity to fight against the virus and manage AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome). It slows the growth of the virus in the body and reduces HIV-related symptoms, thereby improving the lifespan of individuals. It increases the CD4 cell (white blood cells that protect against infection) count in the blood. This medicine is available at the best price in India.

Pharmacodynamics

Efavirenz belongs to the NNRTI (non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors) class of antiretrovirals. Both nucleoside and non-nucleoside RTIs inhibit the same target, the reverse transcriptase enzyme, an essential viral enzyme that transcribes viral RNA into DNA. Unlike nucleoside RTIs, which bind at the enzyme's active site, NNRTIs act allosterically by binding to a distinct site away from the active site known as the NNRTI pocket. Efavirenz is not effective against HIV-2, as the pocket of the HIV-2 reverse transcriptase has a different structure, which confers intrinsic resistance to the NNRTI class.
