Intacavir drug information

Medication Information: Hepatitis B is a virus that is transmitted through the bloodstream to the liver, where it causes inflammation and damage. After infection with hepatitis B, a small number of infected people develop a chronic hepatitis B infection and need treatment to reduce the activity of the virus. Chronic hepatitis B treatment takes several years and requires a combination of antiviral drugs.

Entacavir reduces the number of viruses in the body by stopping the virus from multiplying and helps improve the body's immune system and liver function. This medicine will be prescribed by a specialist doctor.
