What is Abacavir/lamivudine?
Abacavir/lamivudine (INNs) is a combination drug for the treatment of HIV infection. It is marketed as Kivexa in most countries except for the United States, where it is branded as Epzicom. It is a fixed dose combination of a certain crystal form of lamivudine (3TC, Epivir) and the hemisulphate salt of abacavir (ABC, Ziagen).
Lamivudine and abacavir are both nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI).
