Emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate

Ricovir EM

200mg + 300mg



Ricovir EM is primarily indicated for; HIV infection Chronic hepatitis B virus infection


There are two major anti retroviral agents that present in Ricovir EM; contains Emtricitabine, tenofovir disoproxil fumarate.


This is one of the active ingredients of Tablet Ricovir EM , Emtricitabine is a nucleoside analog of cytidine, various cellular enzymes involved in conversion of Emtricitabine into Emtricitabine 5’-triphosphate. This conversion will prohibit the effect of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase. This binds with deoxycytidine 5’ triphosphate, mingled into viral DNA and chain termination of the cells occur.

Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate

Ricovir EM → an acyclic nucleoside phosphonate diester analog of adenosine monophosphate. Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate is converted into tenofovir by diester hydrolysis. Tenofovir is phosphorylated into tenofovir diphosphate by cellular enzymes This inhibits the effect of HIV 1 RT by competing with natural substrate (deoxyadenosine 5’-triphosphate), fusing into DNA, by DNA chain termination.


Ricovir EM is rapidly absorbed with peak plasma concentration occurring 1-2 hours.

Ricovir EM is highly bound to the human plasma protein over the range of 0.02-200 μg/mL (Emtricitabine) and 0.01–25 μg/mL (tenofovir).

Ricovir EM is metabolized and its metabolites are released through urine.

Excretion of tablet Ricovir EM occurs through urine. The mean plasma termination half-life period of tablet Ricovir EM is Emtricitabine 10 hours (7.4-18.0); tenofovir 17 hours (12.0-25.7). The bioavailability of both Emtricitabine is 92% and tenofovir is 25%
