Hepatitis


Entecavir is predominately used to treat chronic hepatitis B infections. It is an anti-viral medication that helps to prevent the virus from multiplying and spreading to non-infected cells. It does this by confining the transcription and reproduction of the DNA in the multiplication stage. This drug is not a cure for this condition but a means to manage it. Those who have HIV and/or AIDs can also take this drug but it is not meant to actively help towards these conditions.

AMIVIR (Lamivudine) has been used for treatment of chronic hepatitis B at a lower dose than for treatment of HIV. It improves the seroconversion of e-antigen positive hepatitis B and also improves histology staging of the liver. Long term use of lamivudine unfortunately leads to emergence of a resistant hepatitis B virus (YMDD) mutant. Despite this, lamivudine is still used widely as it is well tolerated.
