Pharmacology of Dactovin - 12 weeks

Dactovin mechanism of action for 12 weeks therapy: Dactovin is a NS5A inhibitors, NS5A protein is required for viral multiplication This NS5A has capability to merge with HCV RNA. There are two specific functions in RNA multiplication which is based on phosphorylated state  Cis acting function of phosphorylated NS5A: interfering HCV replication complex  Trans acting function: regulate HCV assembly and infectious particle production Dactovin will disrupt hyperphosphorylated NS5A protein and mediated with newly formed RNA viral Dactovin involved in blockade of intercellular viral RNA synthesis and colony of virion Pharmacokinetic: Dactovin 12 weeks Absorption: The peak plasma concentration of Dactovin occurs within 2 hours. The mean bioavailability of Dactovin is 67% The steady state level reached in 4 days after administration of single dose Distribution: The volume of distribution occurs at 47L. The human plasma protein bound with Dactovin with the range of 99% Metabolism: Dactovin a CYP3A substrates, it is dominantly metabolized by CYP3A4 isoenzymes High portion of Dactovin in plasma is in unchanged form nearly 97% Elimination: The route of elimination of metabolites; Bile: 88%; feces 53% (unchanged form) and 6.6% in unchanged form through urine The mean terminal half life period of Dactovin occurs from the range of almost 12 to 15 hours

Indication of Dactovin - 12 weeks

Drug Interaction of Dactovin - 12 weeks

Concurrent use of Dactovin with some drugs likes; Dactovin is an inhibitor of P-glycoprotein transporter, organic anion transporting polypeptide and breast cancer resistance protein; taking Dactovin, may elevate exposure to these drugs, which prolong the therapeutic effect Proteases inhibitors: increase effect of concentration of Dactovin Efavirenz, etravirine & nevirapine: decrease the effect of concentration of Dactovin Amiodarone: serious bradycardia occurs Aprepitant: increase the serum concentration of CYP3A4 substrates Strong inducers of CYP3A causes decreased therapeutic effect of Dactovin Strong CYP3A inhibitors: increase the effect of concentration of Dactovin HMG CoA reductase: increase the effect of concentration of these lipid lowering drugs
