What are TDF drugs?
In 2001, the FDA began approving a line of TDF (tenofovir DF) drugs for the treatment of HIV infection in adults. It is used in combination with other medications to keep the HIV virus under control. In 2008, the FDA approved it for use in patients with chronic hepatitis B. In 2012, TDF drugs were approved to treat HIV in children over the age of two years old.
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the bodys immune system. Without treatment, HIV can make it so that the body is unable to mount a proper defense against infections and diseases. TDF drugs block the action of an HIV enzyme called reverse transcriptase. By doing so, it helps prevent the virus from multiplying and reduce the amount of HIV in the body.

- Fanconi syndrome (a disorder of kidney tubule function)
