Drug Mode of Action ::
Adefovir dipivoxil is an acyclic nucleoside reverse transciptase inhibitor. The diester function is hydrolyzed and subsequently phosphorylated to the active adefovir diphosphate. The active metabolite inhibits HBV DNA polymerase (reverse transcriptase) and hence inhibits viral replication. It can be used in patients with lamivudine-resistant hepatitis B.
Drug Interactions ::
Increased risk of nephrotoxicity with nephrotoxic drugs e.g. aminoglycosides, ciclosporin, NSAIDs, vancomycin, tacrolimus. Ibuprofen increases bioavailability of adefovir.
