Adefovir is used to treat hepatitis B infections. It is used to study organ-specific toxicity and immune mechanisms of Adefovir treatment.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Adefovir is an antiviral acyclic nucleoside phosphonate (ANP) analog that works by blocking reverse transcriptase. It is an inhibitor of duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV) replication that inhibits covalently closed circular DNA (CCC DNA) amplification. Cytotxicity is induced by Human Renal Organic Anion Transporter 1 (hOAT1). Adefovir is an Inhibitor of edema factor (EF)-induced cAMP accumulation and changes in cytokine production in mouse primary macrophages .

Weak T-cell reactivity to hepatitis B virus (HBV) is thought to be the dominant cause for chronic HBV infection. Treatment with adefovir dipivoxil (ADV) increases the rate of HBV e antigen (HBeAg) loss; however, the immune mechanisms associated with this
