What is Duovir-E Kit?
Duovir-E Kit is used in the treatment of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) in adults. It contains three different anti-retroviral agents – lamivudine, zidovudine and efavirenz.
Duovir-E Kit Description
Each DUOVIR-E Kit contains three tablets – two fixed-dose combination tablets of lamivudine and zidovudine and one tablet of efavirenz. Efavirenz is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) of HIV-1. It is a non-competitive inhibitor of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase and does not significantly inhibit HIV-2 reverse transcriptase or cellular DNA polymerases α, β, γ or δ. Both zidovudine and lamivudine belong to the nucleoside analogue class of antiretroviral drugs. Both drugs act by terminating the growth of the DNA chain and inhibiting the reverse transcriptase of HIV.
