- Tacavir Tablet contains Entecavir which belongs to the group of medicines called Antiviral drugs. It is used to treat long term hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in adults, children, and adolescents (2-18 years old). Hepatitis B is a viral infection that attacks the liver and can cause both acute and chronic disease.
Tacavir inhibits the activity of an enzyme (HBV DNA polymerase) by competing with a natural substrate (deoxyguanosine triphosphate), resulting in disruption of viral DNA growth. Prior to the treatment, your doctor may want you to take several blood tests to understand your existing condition.
