What is Velpanat 100 mg/400 mg Tablets ?

Velpanat manufactured by Dr. Reddy's, is a combination of Sofosbuvir 400 mg and Velpatasvir 100 mg tablets. Treatment depends on how active the virus is in your body and your chance of liver damage.

When is Velpanat Tablet prescribed ?

Sofosbuvir and Velpatasvir are antiviral drugs that are used to treat chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections, including all six major HCV genotypes.

How Does Velpanat (Velpatasvir / Sofosbuvir) Tablet Work ?

Velpanat is a direct-acting antiviral (DAA) medication. DAAs are a group of medications that directly block the ability of the hepatitis C virus to make copies of itself. These medicines work by weakening the activity of proteins needed by hepatitis C.

One of the two drugs in Velpanat is Sofosbuvir, which is a nucleotide polymerase inhibitor, and the other is Velpatasvir, which is an NS5A (hepatitis C virus non-structural protein 5A) inhibitor. Sofosbuvir interferes with the reproduction of the genetic material of the hepatitis C virus. Velpatasvir works by interfering with a protein needed by the virus. Together these two medications greatly reduce and then stop the production of new copies of hepatitis C viruses.
