Zivudin is an anti-retroviral which is prescribed and used in treatments for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections.

Zivudin treats HIV infections by inhibiting viral reverse transcriptase and DNA polymerases. The HIV virus needs An enzyme called RT (reverse transcriptase) to replicate its DNA in order to spread and infect more cells. Zivudin works by blocking the reverse transcriptase, this then helps to terminate the DNA chain and prevent the virus from multiplying. Zivudin slows down the HIV Infection progress in the body but it is not a cure.
