Mechanism Of Action Kana-Zovak(Cream) contains the active ingredient Acyclovir, which is an antiviral medicine. Acyclovir works by stopping the herpes simplex virus from reproducing and infecting more cells. Acyclovir is converted to a more active form inside cells of the body that are infected with herpes simplex. The activated Acyclovir then works by blocking the action of a viral enzyme called DNA polymerase. The herpes virus needs the DNA polymerase enzyme to copy its genetic material from RNA to DNA. This process is necessary for the virus to multiply and continue to survive. By blocking the action of DNA polymerase, Acyclovir prevents the herpes virus from multiplying. This controls the infection and helps the immune system to deal with it.
