In Vitro Tenofovir shows cytotoxic effects on cell viability in HK-2 cells, with IC50 values of 9.21 and 2.77 μM at 48 and 72 h in MTT assay, respectively. Tenofovir diminishes ATP levels in HK-2 cells. Tenofovir (3.0 to 28.8 μM) increases oxidative stress and protein carbonylation in HK-2 cells. Furthermore, Tenofovir induces apoptosis in HK-2 cells, and that apoptosis is induced via mitochondrial damage[1]. Tenofovir and M48U1 formulated in 0.25% HEC each inhibits the replication of both R5-tropic HIV-1BaL and X4-tropic HIV-1IIIb in activated PBMCs, and inhibits several laboratory strains and patient-derived HIV-1 isolates. The combined formulation of M48U1 and tenofovir in 0.25% HEC exhibits synergistic antiretroviral activity against infection with R5-tropic HIV-1BaL, and is not toxic to PBMCs[2].
In Vivo Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (20, 50, 140, or 300 mg/kg) administered to BLT mice, shows dose dependent activity during vaginal HIV challenge in BLT humanized mice. Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (50, 140, 300 mg/kg) significantly reduces HIV transmission in BLT mice[3]. Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (0.5, 1.5, or 5.0 mg/kg/day, p.o.) induces a dose-dependent decline in serum viremia in woodchucks chronically infected with WHV. Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate administration is safe and effective in the woodchuck model of chronic HBV infection[4].

5 mM 0.6964 mL 3.4818 mL 6.9635 mL
10 mM 0.3482 mL 1.7409 mL 3.4818 mL
Cell Assay Cells are plated into 48-well tissue culture plates (39,000 cells/mL) and allowed to grow for 48 h followed by treatment with vehicle or Tenofovir. Following the treatment period, cell viability is assessed using the MTT assay. The MTT assay relies on the conversion of tetrazolium dye 3-(4,5-dimethlthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) to formazan by NAD(P)H-dependent oxidoreductases[1].
Animal Admin Twenty adult chronic WHV carrier woodchucks are stratified equally by age, sex, body weight, and serum GGT activity into five treatment groups consisting of four animals each: (i) Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate at 15.0 mg/kg once per day, (ii) Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate at 5.0 mg/kg/day, (iii) Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate at 1.5 mg/kg/day, (iv) Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate at 0.5 mg/kg/day, and (v) a placebo control. The woodchucks are treated daily for 4 weeks and observed for an additional 12 weeks following cessation of drug treatment[4].
