Product Description

Ribavirin

Application Notes

Ribavirin is active against a number of DNA and RNA viruses. It is a member of the nucleoside antimetabolite drugs that interfere with duplication of viral genetic material.Antiviral agent used against a wide variety of human viral infections, in particular, chronic hepatitis C, HIV, and adenovirus. Its metabolite, ribavirin 5'-phosphate, is an inhibitor of inosine monophosphate (IMP) dehydrogenase, but many other mechanisms of action are also supported with experimental evidence.

Usage Statement

Research Use Only (RUO). Ready for CE IVD labeling of clinical applications.

Biochemical Physiological Actions Antiviral agent whose metabolite, ribavirin 5′-phosphate, is an inhibitor of inosine monophosphate (IMP) dehydrogenase. Used to inhibit purine (GTP pools) biosynthesis at the level of inosine monophosphate (IMP) dehydrogenase and as a precursor to the di- and tri-phosphates which inhibit viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerases.
