Description

What is Vemlidy?

Vemlidy, with the generic name tenofovir alafenamide, is an oral medication indicated to manage chronic hepatitis B virus infection among adult patients who have compensated liver disease. It prevents complications like liver damage or cirrhosis and liver cancer. On the other hand, this medication cannot cure hepatitis B and prevent its transmissibility.

This nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor works by getting incorporated into the viral DNA by hepatitis B virus (HBV) transcriptase. It inhibits the growth of the virus by hindering HBV replication. This is available in Vemlidy 25 mg tablets.
