hey, i wanna know if there's any infection wich requires the use of didivir and aluvia except HIV?

Response from Dr. Young


Both Didivir (tenofovir/emtricitabine- known here as Truvada) and Alluvia (known here as Kaletra) are indicated for the treatment of HIV. Truvada and Kaletra also are used in prevention of HIV infection in people who may have been exposed to the virus.

Truvada (but not Alluvia/Kaletra) may also be used in the treatment of hepatitis B virus infection.
