What is TPOXX?
TPOXX is an FDA-approved (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) medication manufactured by SIGA Technologies Inc. TPOXX was developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).
TPOXX is an antiviral drug with activity against orthopoxviruses such as smallpox and the monkeypox virus. However, its use for monkeypox is not approved by the FDA. Therefore, the CDC holds a protocol that allows for the use of tecovirimat for the treatment of non-variola orthopoxvirus infections, including monkeypox, in adults and children of all ages.
TPOXX is an inhibitor of the orthopoxvirus protein and is used for the treatment of human smallpox disease in adults and pediatric patients weighing at least 3 kg. The effectiveness of TPOXX may be reduced in immunocompromised patients based on animal studies showing reduced effectiveness in immunocompromised animal models.
What doses of TPOXX are available?
TPOXX is available as a capsule and injection formulation, in the following doses: 200 mg, and a single-dose vial containing 200 mg in 20 mL.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
TPOXX active ingredients
TPOXX contains tecovirimat as the active ingredient. TPOXX prevents the spread of the variola virus by blocking the production of a secondary viral envelope. Without this envelope, viral particles remain inside the cell in which they were made and cannot spread to and infect other cells.
TPOXX side effects
The most common side effects of TPOXX in clinical trials compared to placebo include:
- Abdominal pain
- Administration site reactions
In rare instances, TPOXX can cause more serious adverse effects. These can include:
