4. Mechanism Action Of Famcimac 250mg?

Famcimac tablets 250mg contain famciclovir, an antiviral drug that is used to treat genital herpes and shingles. 

Famciclovir in Famcimac tablets 250mg is the prodrug of penciclovir and is rapidly converted into penciclovir, which is highly effective against HSV-I, HSV-II and VZV, which are double stranded DNA viruses.  Penciclovir is a nucleoside analog that inhibits the viral DNA polymerase enzyme in virus-infected cells. 

A viral enzyme called thymidine kinase (TK) converts penciclovir to a form that is in turn converted to penciclovir triphosphate by cellular kinases (enzymes that transfers phosphate groups).  This penciclovir triphosphate persists in infected cells for about 10 hours and inhibits the action of the viral DNA polymerase enzyme and this blocks viral DNA synthesis and inhibits replication of viral DNA, without affecting normal cellular processes. 

The action of famciclovir in Famcimac tablets 250mg (after conversion to penciclovir triphosphate) prevents the virus replicating and therefore stops the growth and spread of the virus, relieving symptoms of the infection and allowing the immune system to fight the infection. 

Since the activation of famciclovir in Famcimac tablets 250mg depends on the presence of a viral enzyme, cells that are not infected with virus are not likely to be affected.
