Abhope, marketed under the brand name Abhope, is an antiviral medication used to treat HIV infection in adults and children. Abhope contains Abacavir Sulfate as its active ingredient, which inhibits the replication of HIV virus by interfering with the activity of the viral reverse transcriptase enzyme.
Each Abhope tablet contains 300mg of Abacavir Sulfate.
Mechanism of Action:
Abacavir Sulfate in Abhope is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI). It works by incorporating itself into the viral DNA, which then prevents the replication of the virus by interfering with the activity of the viral reverse transcriptase enzyme.
Abhope is used to treat HIV infection in adults and children.
HOW TO USE:
Abhope should be taken orally with or without food, as directed by your healthcare provider. The dosage of Abhope is dependent on the patient’s weight, age, and the stage of HIV infection.
