FDA Approves Vemlidy® (tenofovir alafenamide) for Chronic Hepatitis B in Adults
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Vemlidy® (tenofovir alafenamide) for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B infection in adults. Vemlidy® is administered as a 25-mg once-daily treatment. The active ingredient in Vemlidy® is a targeted prodrug of tenofovir that allows for lower dosing and more efficient liver targeting than Viread® (tenofovir disoproxil), a previously approved drug used to treat hepatitis B and HIV.
Vemlidy® is manufactured and marketed by Gilead Sciences, Inc.
