What is the purpose of Tafero em (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/emtricitabine)?
Tavin-EM contains two substances that, when combined with other anti-retroviral pills, can aid in the treatment of HIV infection or can be taken for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) to minimise the chance of developing HIV. Tavin-EM is a reverse transcriptase inhibitor that inhibits nucleoside analogues. Emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, the active components, are mixed in one tablet.
HIV affects the body's CD4 cells (also known as T cells). These cells are crucial in the fight against infection. Once HIV is contracted, the virus replicates inside these cells before being released into the bloodstream and infecting other CD4 cells.
