How Duavive works

This medicine contains two active substances called conjugated estrogens and bazedoxifene. Conjugated estrogens belong to a group of medicines called menopausal hormone therapy (MHT). Bazedoxifene belongs to a group of non-hormonal medicines called selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs).

serious fungal infections caused by Scedosporium (ski-doe-spore-rium) species and Fusarium (few-saa-rium) species.

Expand Elelyso CMI 19 Jun 2019
 
Elelyso is an Enzyme Replacement Therapy which is used to treat Type 1 Gaucher disease in adults and children (2 to 17 years of age) with at least one of the following signs of the condition:
Spleen or liver enlargement
A low number of red blood cells (anaemia)
A tendency to bleed easily caused by a low blood platelet count. (platelets stop blood loss by forming a plug inside a blood vessel).
Elelyso has not been studied in Type 2 Gaucher disease.

How Elelyso works

Gaucher disease is a genetic disorder caused by a missing or defective enzyme named glucocerebrosidase. When this enzyme is missing or does not work properly, a substance called glucocerebroside builds up inside cells in the body. The build-up of this material causes the signs and symptoms found in Gaucher disease. Elelyso is designed to replace the missing or defective enzyme, glucocerebrosidase, in patients with Type 1 Gaucher disease.

Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 is used to treat Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1) infection in adults. This medicine can be taken alone or in combination with other anti-HIV medicines.
Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 consists of three medicines:
tenofovir disoproxil maleate
emtricitabine
efavirenz
These are combined in one tablet to help control Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1) infection.
Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 contains three active ingredients.
Tenofovir disoproxil and emtricitabine belong to a group of antiviral medicines known as nucleoside and nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI).
Efavirenz belongs to a group of antiviral medicines known as non- nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTI).

How Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 works

HIV-1 infection destroys CD4 T cells, which are important to the immune system. The immune system helps fight infection. After a large number of T cells are destroyed, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) may develop.
Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 helps block HIV- 1 reverse transcriptase, a viral chemical in your body (enzyme) that is needed for HIV-1 to multiply. Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 lowers the amount of HIV-1 in the blood (viral load). Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 may also help to increase the number of T cells (CD4+ cells), allowing your immune system to improve. Lowering the amount of HIV-1 in the blood lowers the chance of death or infections that happen when your immune system is weak (opportunistic infections).

Use in Children and the Elderly

Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 is for adults.
Do not take Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 if you are under the age of 18 years.
Do not take Tenofovir Disoproxil/Emtricitabine/Efavirenz Mylan 300/200/600 if you are over the age of 65 before discussing with your doctor.
