Teno-Em, Generic PrEP from Thai Government
Generic PrEP from Thailand
Thailand has the highest prevalence of HIV among countries in Asia but has also been a pioneer in HIV prevention and treatment efforts in the region, reducing the incidence of new infections significantly over the last two decades.
Building upon this remarkable history, Thailand has set an ambitious goal to stop the AIDS epidemic in the country by 2030.
Thailand provides affordable generics medications as well as original medications, in the last 5 years there are more people travelling from more than 130 countries around the world to receive affordable high quality healthcare in Thailand.
PULSE clinic is established since 2015 in the center of Bangkok, expanded to tourist destination such as Phuket island, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong.
In the past years, we have received thousands of patients receiving either HIV prevention service or HIV treatment service in our branches. One of the most common questions is about how legit is the drug.
2012 - Bioequivalent Study
According to the 2012 bioequivalent study comparing between Teno-EM 300/200 and original medication, the conclusion was that the Teno-Em 300/200mg tablets manufactured by GPO Thailand when compared with the reference product Original Medication 300/200mg tablets manufactured in Germany met the bioequivalence criteria (90% confident interval for the ratio of geometric least squares means within 80.00-125.00%) with respect to the rate and extent of absorption of tenofovir and emtricitabine. Therefore, two formulations were bioequivalent and can be used interchangeably.
