What is tenofovir?
Jul 4, 2007

May i know more about tenofovir? Is this the best cure for HBV? And where can I buy it?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Tenofovir has excellent "in the test tube" activity against HBV and has been shown to be effective in patients. However, it is not approved for this purpose yet.

You should discuss with your physician whether tenofovir is right for you. Many other good drugs have been approved for HBV including entecavir and pegylated interferon and others.
