EFdA (4'- C-ethynyl-2-fluoro-2'- deoxyadenosine) forestalls the rise of safe HIV freaks, is more than multiple times more dynamic than AZT and a few significant degrees more dynamic than other clinical opposite transcriptase inhibitory 2', 3'- dideoxynucleoside drugs, extremely low harmful,exceptionally long acting, and helpful for prophylaxis. EFdA is presently under clinical examination by Merck and Co. as MK-8591. Before all else, an overall thought for the improvement of hostile to viral changed nucleosides is introduced. Next, the advancement of EFdA is talked about and afterward the current clinical preliminary outcomes by Merck will be introduced. For the improvement of EFdA, four working speculations, the best approach to forestall the rise of safe HIV freaks, the best approach to diminish the harmfulness of nucleosides, the best approach to give nucleoside solidness for long acting, the distinction of the substrate selectivity among human and viral nucleic corrosive polymerases makes it conceivable to grow astounding enemy of viral altered nucleosides, were proposed. 4'- C-subbed 2'- deoxy nucleoside (4'SdN) was structured as the nucleoside which could fulfill these theories. The investigation on 4'SdN has effectively come about in the improvement of EFdA.
