Didanosine is indicated for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Didanosine is metabolized intracellularly by a series of cellular enzymes to its active moiety, 2,3–dideoxyadenosine-5-triphosphate (ddA-TP), which inhibits HIV DNA polymerase (reverse transcriptase). HIV replication is suppressed by chain termination, competitive inhibition of reverse transcriptase, or both. The intracellular half-life of ddA-TP is greater than 12 hours.
