Taf is just the same as tenofovir, with a different way of action, it gets absorbed slowly, so one could minimise the dose relative to tenofovir to spare the kidneys and bones. Nothing to be highly optimistic about these so far useless antiviral drugs.
Instead of targetting the culprit of hbv viral persistence, the cccDNA, the researchers are just focussing on something irrelevant. May be their aim is not to find a cure but to only keep us poor chronic hbvers on their antivirals for ever. I can't really understand it when they know the cccDNA being the main culprit, yet not targetting it directly. The situation is highly disappointing, the researchers and drug companies only care for their profits nothing more.
Why is it so difficult to target the cccDNA, is it the delivery of drugs to the nucleus of the hepatocytes where this culprit sits or something else, I really don't understand, and I'm very disappointed.
I'm currently on entecavir for few weeks; no improvement in how I feel yet, but no bothersome sides either, which I was warned about by my doctor.
i have been suffering from HBV + & Treatment with Enticavir & later Tennofovir for 6 years . Now i am HBV _ (negative ). Thanks God. Thanks my doctor & his treatment. Pray for me my all friends.
