Emtricitabine was discovered by Dr. Dennis Liotta, Dr. Raymond Schinazi and Dr. Woo-Baeg Choi of Emory University and licensed to Triangle Pharmaceuticals by Emory in 1996. Triangle Pharmaceuticals was acquired in 2003 by Gilead Sciences, who completed development and now market the product with the brand name Emtriva®.

It was approved by the FDA July 2, 2003. It is very similar to 3TC and cross-resistance between the two is near-universal.

Emtricitabine (FTC), with trade name Emtriva® (formerly Coviracil), is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) for the treatment of HIV infection in adults.

Emtricitabine is also marketed in a fixed-dose combination with tenofovir (Viread®) under the brand name Truvada®. A fixed-dose triple combination of emtricitabine, tenofovir and efavarenz (Sustiva®, marketed by Bristol-Myers Squibb) is in development.
