How Sofab – generic Sovaldi (sofosbuvir 400) mg works

Sofosbuvir is an antiviral drug that belongs to a class of medicines called nucleotide polymerase inhibitors. It inhibits an enzyme RNA polymerase which is essential for viral replication and thus decreases the amount of Hepatitis C virus in the body thereby resulting in less liver damage and improved liver function.

Sofosbuvir contains oral nucleotide analog inhibitor of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) polymerase. The drug is a direct-acting antiviral agent and interferes straight with the HCV lifecycle, restraining the viral replication. It can be incorporated into HCV RNA by the NS5B polymerase and acts as a chain terminator. The drug is available for oral use in the form of 400mg tablets.

The high cost of new medications has always been a controversial issue. Generally speaking, a drug will be sold at a high price under patent for a number of years before it may legally be copied and.

Hepatitis c symptoms & treatment

The frightening thing about the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is that patients who are infected seldom exhibit any symptoms. The virus attacks the liver causing cirrhosis and it is only when the damage is irreversible that the symptoms of cirrhosis begin to show. However, in some cases, Hepatitis C symptoms become apparent at an earlier stage. These include fatigue, joint pain, stomach ache, itchiness, aching muscles, dark-colored urine, and jaundice.

Once cirrhosis sets in, networks of expanded blood vessels become visible beneath the skin and patients experience swelling of the legs, feet and stomach, muscle wasting and symptoms of internal bleeding. The nervous system is damaged, leading to confusion, memory loss and difficulty in concentrating.

Treatment of Hepatitis C is achieved by combining generic Sofab (Sofosbuvir 400) mg with ribavirin.
